Ta kormia kai ta mahairia – English Lyrics

Bodies and knives
One day change hands
They leave behind scars
That hurt and never fade.

Touch me, kiss me, smell me
Hide in me – dwell in me
Like old wine treasure me
A body is not just an embracing
Oh! A body is not just an embracing
It’s a homeland that will turn to foreign land.

Birds and crickets
Go on singing for so many years now
And their thrilling song
Makes apples blush.

Bodies and knives
Had better not fall into the wrong hands
Someone is going to get killed
And who’s gonna take the blame?

In the feast’s joviality
The one that holds the tambourine
Higher than the others
Is he who has been hurt and knows
How sweet the cut of a knife can be
