Hilia Miria kimata – English Lyrics

Days salt as the sea
with the Makedonian birds
that lost their course
Ever lurking in ambush, the shark,
the black fish
his circles tightening

A hundred thousand waves

Our beards grew long
the dog, mad with anger,tears his voice barking
help, my dear,don’t let us devour each other

A hundred thousand waves

Hours after hour we brought him under the spell with the strings of the lyre
tied up with his hands behind his back to the main mast
the man from Chios / the blind singer
chewing his mastika
and elsewhere Tzavelaina

Hilia Miria kimata
