If you remember my dream [ An thimithís tóniró mou (Αν θυμηθείς τ' όνειρό μου) ]


An thimithís tóniró mou (Αν θυμηθείς τ' όνειρό μου)

Στην αγκαλιά μου κι απόψε σαν άστρο κοιμήσου
δεν απομένει στον κόσμο ελπίδα καμιά
τώρα που η νύχτα κεντά με φιλιά το κορμί σου
μέτρα τον πόνο κι άσε με μόνο στην ερημιά
Αν θυμηθείς τ' όνειρό μου
σε περιμένω να 'ρθεις
μ' ένα τραγούδι του δρόμου να ρθεις όνειρό μου
το καλοκαίρι που λάμπει τ' αστέρι με φως να ντυθείς

Stin angaliá mou kiá-pópse san ástro kimísou
den apoméni ston kósmo elpída kamiá
tóra poui níkhta kendá me filiá to kormí sou
métra ton póno ki-áse me móno stin erimiá.

An thimithís tóniró mou
se periméno narthís
ména tragoúdi tou drómou narthís óniró mou
to kalokéri pou lámbi tastéri me fós na dithís.

This song became the reason, that Mikis stood one week

If you remember my dream

Versions: #1#2#3
Sleep in my arms like a star tonight also
there is no hope left to the world
now that the night embroiders with kisses your body
count the pain and let me alone in the wilderness
If you remember my dream
I'm waiting for you to come
with a street song to come my dream
the summer that shines, to be dressed with the light of a star
