O arhigos – English Lyrics



The lyrics of the song  O arhigos by Haris Alexiou translated to English

O arhigos – English Lyrics

We were making paper hats
and were holding wooden rifles
and war was a feast
in our old haunts

Everyone called you captain
and what you only knew
was giving orders
and I was running after you
so that you’d catch a glimpse of me

You leaned on the ground
to fall asleep
and your heart turned into a cypress
I told you I’d die,
if you were killed
and yet,
I’m still alive

O arhigos
