But at nights
Lyrics: Tasos Leivaditis
Music: Giorgos Tsagkaris
First version: Vasilis Papakonstantinou
This version: Apostolos Rizos & Martha Frintzila

And look, we got here
without luggage
but with such a beautiful moon
And I dreamed of a better world
Poor humanity, you couldn’t
write even one more chapter
Like a piece of wood from a sad shipwreck
our elder continent travels

But at nights how beautifully
the earth smells

Of course he loved
the ideals of humanity
but the birds
were flying farther away

Cruel heartless world
that never opened an umbrella
above the tree that is getting wet

But at nights how beautifully
the earth smells

Then they discovered the compass
so they could die elsewhere
and avarice
so they could remain dead forever

But as the night falls
a flute somewhere
or a star is pleading
for the whole humanity

But at nights how beautifully
the earth smells

As I’m staying in my room
I suddenly get brilliant ideas
I wear Father’s jacket
so there’s two of us
And if anyone ever heard me bark
it was to give
the room an air of countryside

But at nights how beautifully
the earth smells

Someday we will deliver justice
with a star or a flower
like a song that, as it rains
takes the poor men’s side

But at nights how beautifully
the earth smells

Give me your hand…
Give me your hand…
