English/Greek
I was born so betrayed, who am I? What I’ll be?
What is mine in this life? Just the heaven and sea
No I won’t give them up, they’re my fortune, my proof
Don’t believe what you hear, ’cause their truth kills your truth

The duty I’ve got is my war against fear
And I want you with me, yes, I want you so near
Watch my dance, head up high, hands like wings and I’ll fly
To kefali psila kai ta cheria anoichta

Tin echei i psychi mou ti fotia
Tous fovous olous kaiei monadika
Ta vimata mou kano os to Theo
Ki an peso ego xana tha sikotho

I have heard many words but I still won’t forget
The language of my body, the sound my heart makes
So I’m staying alive and my losses won’t let
My soul to surrender, the power of loss is my bet

Watch my dance, head up high, hands like wings and I’ll fly
To kefali psila kai ta cheria anoichta

Tin echei i psychi mou ti fotia
Tous fovous olous kaiei monadika
Ta vimata mou kano os to Theo
Ki an peso ego xana tha sikotho

Tin echei i psychi mou ti fotia
Tous fovous olous kaiei monadika
Ta vimata mou kano os to Theo
Ki an peso ego xana tha sikotho

Greek script
I was born so betrayed, who am I? What I’ll be?
What is mine in this life? Just the heaven and sea
No I won’t give them up, they’re my fortune, my proof
Don’t believe what you hear, ’cause their truth kills your truth

The duty I’ve got is my war against fear
And I want you with me, yes, I want you so near
Watch my dance, head up high, hands like wings and I’ll fly
Το κεφάλι ψηλά και τα χέρια ανοιχτά

Την έχει η ψυχή μου τη φωτιά
Τους φόβους όλους καίει μοναδικά
Τα βήματά μου κάνω ως το Θεό
Κι αν πέσω εγώ ξανά θα σηκωθώ

I have heard many words but I still won’t forget
The language of my body, the sound my heart makes
So I’m staying alive and my losses won’t let
My soul to surrender, the power of loss is my bet

Watch my dance, head up high, hands like wings and I’ll fly
Το κεφάλι ψηλά και τα χέρια ανοιχτά

Την έχει η ψυχή μου τη φωτιά
Τους φόβους όλους καίει μοναδικά
Τα βήματά μου κάνω ως το Θεό
Κι αν πέσω εγώ ξανά θα σηκωθώ

Την έχει η ψυχή μου τη φωτιά
Τους φόβους όλους καίει μοναδικά
Τα βήματά μου κάνω ως το Θεό
Κι αν πέσω εγώ ξανά θα σηκωθώ

Translation
I was born so betrayed, who am I? What I’ll be?
What is mine in this life? Just the heaven and sea
No I won’t give them up, they’re my fortune, my proof
Don’t believe what you hear, ’cause their truth kills your truth

The duty I’ve got is my war against fear
And I want you with me, yes, I want you so near
Watch my dance, head up high, hands like wings and I’ll fly

Head up high and open arms

My soul has the fire
That burns all fears individually
I’m making steps toward God
And if I ever fall, I’ll get up again

I have heard many words but I still won’t forget
The language of my body, the sound my heart makes
So I’m staying alive and my losses won’t let
My soul to surrender, the power of loss is my bet

Watch my dance, head up high, hands like wings and I’ll fly
Head up high and open arms

My soul has the fire
That burns all fears individually
I’m making steps toward God
And if I ever fall, I’ll get up again

My soul has the fire
That burns all fears individually
I’m making steps toward God
And if I ever fall, I’ll get up again

    I kindda like this song, but what does
    “Tin echei i psychi mou ti fotia
    Tous fovous olous kaiei monadika
    Ta vimata mou kano os to Theo
    Ki an peso ego xana tha sikotho” means?

    @RBis

    I’ll try to translate to the best of my ability:

    My soul has the fire
    Only it can burn all fears
    I take steps towards God
    And if I fall, I will get up again

  • Tom says:

    I don’t understand why is it written “Λούκας Γιώρκας feat. Stereo Mike” if most of the song is sang by Stereo Mike, and Loukas has only the refrain. It should be “Stereo Mike feat. Λούκας Γιώρκας”.
