Viszlát nyár

Játsszunk nyílt lapokkal végre:
a hajómnak mennie kell
és itt fog hagyni téged.
Majd benned él tovább a vérem,
és ha nem adod el, a szíveden a jel,
mi a földről az égig emel.
Viszlát, nyár, most már elkéstél,
mert azt hazudtad, enyém leszel,
de nem jöttél!
Viszlát, álom, köszönöm, hogy eltűntél!
Most már ideje visszakapnom,
amiket elvettél!
Megfáradt ereimben az élet,
tudom, hogy fognál még,
de engedj el már, kérlek.
Itt van, tépd le belőlem a részed,
és ha nem adod el, a szíveden a jel,
mi a földről az égig emel.

Goodbye summer

Let’s be cruelly honest
my boat has to go
and it will leave you here.
My blood will live within you
and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart,
which lifts you up from the ground to the sky.
Goodbye summer, you missed me,
’cause you lied that you’ll be mine
but you didn’t come!
Goodbye dream, I’m so thankful that you’re gone!
Now it’s time to give me back
what you took away from me!
The life has got tired in my veins,
I know that you’d hold (me)
but please, let me go.
Here it is, strip your part out of me
and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart,
which lifts you up from the ground to the sky.
May we meet again!
