Grigoris Bithikotsis - Ena Dilino (Ένα Δειλινό) (English translation)


Ena Dilino (Ένα Δειλινό)

Ένα δειλινό, ένα δειλινό
ένα δειλινό σε δέσαν στο σταυρό
Σου κάρφωσαν τα χέρια σου, μου κάρφωσαν τα σπλάχνα
Σου δέσανε τα μάτια σου, ω, ω, μου δέσαν την ψυχή μου
Ένα δειλινό, ένα δειλινό
ένα δειλινό με τσάκισαν στα δυο
Μου κλέψανε την όραση, μου πήραν την αφή μου
Μόν’ μου `μεινε η ακοή, ω, ω, να σ’ αγρικώ, παιδί μου
Ένα δειλινό, ένα δειλινό
ένα δειλινό σαν τον σταυραετό
Χίμηξε, πα στις θάλασσες, χίμηξε, πα στους κάμπους
Κάνε ν’ ανθίσουν τα βουνά, ω, ω, και να χαρούν οι ανθρώποι

One Evening

One evening, they bound you to the cross.
They nailed your hands, they nailed my insides.
They bound your eyes, they bound my soul.
One evening, they broke me in two.
They stole my sight, they took my touch,
My hearing remains, to listen to you, my child.
One evening, like the golden eagle,
swoop over the sea, swoop over the fields.
Make the mountains flower, and the people rejoice.
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
