I Will Play For You

written by: Irena Ewa Idzikowska

translated by: Artur Komoter

 

I looked out the window
from behind the curtain watching your movements
they were just like when you loved me very much
but the awareness of the glowing silhouette moving away
made me want to play the last goodbye for you
I will play the melody and the notes will be beads of rain
the spider will see them in the light of its web in the morning
suns will be two when you are gone
the smile will go out on one of them
I will play the goodbye
the wind will help choose the tone
I will remember the rising of the moon
I will raise the memory like a bank of clouds
I cannot predict the next day today
you do not look in my direction when my eyes glaze
somewhere nearby pass by lovers laughing ripply
but my heart cannot work up any smile
the only thing I want to do for you today is to play the goodbye
please do not say goodbye say otherwise
I will see you even in dreams
I will hug as firmly as I used to
because after all 'cause me 'cause you

Zagram dla ciebie

written by: Irena Ewa Idzikowska

 

spojrzałam przez okno
zza firany obserwowałam twoje ruchy
były takie jak wtedy gdy mnie bardzo kochałeś
lecz świadomość oddalania się pełnej blasku sylwetki
sprawiła że chcę dla ciebie zagrać ostatni raz na do widzenia

zagram melodię a nutami będą koraliki deszczu
pająk ujrzy je w świetle swojej sieci rankiem
słońca będą już dwa gdy ciebie nie będzie
uśmiech zgaśnie na jednym z nich

zagram na do widzenia
wiatr pomoże wybrać ton
zapamiętam wschód księżyca
uniosę wspomnienie jak obłok

kolejnego dnia nie mogę przewidzieć dziś
nie patrzysz w moją stronę gdy oczy mi się szklą
gdzieś obok przechodzą zakochani śmiejąc się perliście
lecz moje serce nie potrafi zdobyć się na jakikolwiek uśmiech
jedyne co teraz dzisiaj chcę zrobić dla ciebie to zagrać na do widzenia

proszę nie mów żegnaj powiedz inaczej
zobaczę cię przecież choćby w snach
przytulę jak kiedyś mocno do siebie
bo przecież bo ja bo przecież bo ty
