ποτέ του στην αυλή
αφού για πάντα μες στ' όνειρο του
θέλησε πια να ζεί

Then direct you into my arms

Nothing will ever be the same again

That will inspire the new generation.

Απ’ τους φίλους που παίζαμε πότε πότε χαρτιά,
θα ρωτήσει κανένας τους έτσι απλά: «Τον Ουράνη
μην τον είδε κανείς; Έχει μέρες που χάθηκε...».
Θ’ απαντήσει άλλος παίζοντας: «Μ’ αυτός έχει πεθάνει!».

Μια στιγμή θ’ απομείνουνε τα χαρτιά τους κρατώντας,
θα κουνήσουν περίλυπα και σιγά το κεφάλι.
Θε να πουν: «Τι `ναι ο άνθρωπος! Χθες ακόμα εζούσε...»
και βουβοί στο παιχνίδι τους θα βαλθούνε και πάλι.

Translation:
Of the friends who occasionally played cards with me,
One of them will ask simply "Has anyone seen
Ouranis? It's been days since he disappeared.."
Another one will reply while playing “But he has died!”

For a moment they will look at each other,
They will shake sorrowfully and slowly their head,
Perhaps they will say ''So sad! Yesterday he was still alive..''
And without talking, they'll continue their game once more

Song language:  Greek

Artist:  Diafana Krina

You got a fast car
I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar

I got no plans, I ain’t going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

You're happy without me

Just stop wasting my time
