Stundu, kad tevis nav,

Es atļaujos skumt.

Domās es skaitu līdz,

Kā sirds mana trīs.

Soļi tik klusi skan.

Tie – visi man.

Varbūt tas tikai māns?

Varbūt …

The hours, when you’re not there,

I let myself be sad.

I’m counting in my thoughts

How my heart trembles.

Footsteps silently go.

They’re all for me.

Maybe it’s just a trick?

Maybe…

Radio klusi dīc

Kaut ko, kas tik skumjš.

Nebaidos smaidīt,

Zinu – tas nav par mums.

Laiku man nepielūgt

Tas iet, tas plūst.

Mirklim – tam nepazust

Nekur.

The radio buzzes

About some sad things.

I’m not afraid to smile,

I know – it’s not about us.

I cannot plead to time,

It comes, it goes.

The moment – it won’t disappear

Anywhere.

Un aizklīst šaubas prom,

Kad durvis atveras un tu,

Tu saki klusi man: „Sveiks!”

Tā visa dēļ ir vērts tā skumt

Dienu vai trīs,

Nakts tā vai rīts.

Un es būšu tepat.

And all doubts wander off,

When the door opens up and you,

You say quietly to me: “Hey!”

All this is worth being sad for

A day or three,

Morning or night

And I will be right here.

Vienkāršs tavs klusums,

Vienkāršs viss, ko tu dod.

Pat tūkstošo reizi tu esi,

Bet sirds nepierod.

Pieskāriens tev kā zīds,

Tev acīs rīts.

Pat miljardiem zvaigžņu šķiet

Nekas!

Simple’s your silence,

Simple is all you give.

A thousand times you’ve been here,

But heart does not adapt.

Your touch is like silk,

Dawn is in your eyes.

Even a million stars seem like

Nothing!

Un aizklīst šaubas prom,

Kad durvis atveras un tu,

Tu saki klusi man: „Sveiks!”

Tā visa dēļ ir vērts tā skumt.

And all doubts wander off,

When the door opens up and you,

You say quietly to me: “Hey!”

All this is worth being sad for.

Un aizklīst šaubas prom,

Kad durvis atveras un tu,

Tu saki klusi man: „Sveiks!”

Tā visa dēļ ir vērts tā skumt

Dienu vai trīs,

Nakts tā vai rīts.

Un es būšu tepat.

And all doubts wander off,

When the door opens up and you,

You say quietly to me: “Hey!”

All this is worth being sad for

A day or three,

Morning or night

And I will be right here.
