David Deyl - Akorát (English translation)

English translation

Only

Give me your hand
I know that in my dream
I dream of you, secretly.
You're innocent like the sun
slowly rising up through the clouds
Tell me how you perceive the silence
and your affection can be just a lie
 
I only want the strength!
I only want to be the one who you want,
I only want to go there where you are
I admit that I don't know how to be defeated
May my strength never run out so that I can
stay the way I am
So that I could dream of us going out
Don't say "no", I'm not listening
May the strength never run out
 
When the day comes, I'll wake up from the dream
I no longer believe in truth
Tell me how you perceive the silence
How to swim through it, how to be in it and bear it
I only want the strength!
 
I only want to be the one who you want,
I only want to go there where you are
I admit that I don't know how to be defeated
May my strength never run out so that I can
stay the way I am
So that I can dream of us going out
Don't say "no", I'm oblivious to this seductive "no"!
 
I only want it to be me who, within the night,
will try to return the time when we were together
I only want to tell you: "Trust me again."
I want to gather all my strength
So that I could be truly who I am
So that I could dream that you're not a dream
Don't say "no", I'm not listening
 
My heart goes right where you are
and continues wherever you go
I hope my strength doesn't run out
So that I can be truly who I am
So that I could dream that you're not a dream
Don't say "no", I'm not listening
My heart goes right where you are
My heart goes right where you are
