Spanish: Verdemar

Verdemar... Verdemar...
Se llenaron de silencio tus pupilas.
Te perdí, Verdemar.
Tus manos amarillas, tus labios sin color
y el frío de la noche sobre tu corazón.
Faltas tú, ya no estás,
se apagaron tus pupilas, Verdemar.

Te encontré sin pensarlo y alegré mis días,
olvidando la angustia de las horas mías.
Pero luego la vida se ensañó contigo
y en tus labios mis besos se morían de frío.
Y ahora... ¿qué rumbo tomaré?
Caminos sin aurora me pierden otra vez.

Volverás, Verdemar...
Es el alma que presiente tu retorno.
Llegarás, llegarás...
Por un camino blanco tu espíritu vendrá
buscando mi cansancio y aquí me encontrarás.
Faltas tú... Ya no estás...
Se apagaron tus pupilas, Verdemar.

English: Seagreen

Seagreen... Seagreen...
Your pupils were filled with silence.
I lost you, Seagreen.
Your yellow hands, your colourless lips
and the cold of the night upon you heart.
You’re missing, you’re not here anymore,
your pupils have gone out, Seagreen.

I found you without thinking about it and I cheered up my days
forgetting the anguish of my hours.
But then life was out to get you
and upon your lips my kisses died of cold.
And now... which path will I take?
Roads without dawn get me lost again.

You’ll come back, Seagreen...
It’s the soul that senses your return.
You’ll arrive, you’ll arrive...
Along a white path your spirit will come
seeking my weariness and here you’ll find me.
You’re missing... You’re not here anymore...
Your pupils have gone out, Seagreen.
