Την πατρίδα'μ έχασα
« on: May 18, 2013, 07:27:18 AM »
Each year, May 19, is the Remembrance Day to commemorate the Pontian Christian Genocide by the Ottoman and Young Turks. At least 350,000 men, women, and children died from 1914 - 1923 through systematic slaughter, death marches, and starvation.
May their memory be eternal.
May the day come soon, when the modern Turkish state will recognize one of the darkest moments in its history and admit to being the perpetrators of a targeted ethnic cleansing

Την πατρίδαμ' έχασα,             
άκλαψα και πόνεσα (x2)
Λύουμαι κι'αρόθυμο, όι-όι
ν' ανασπάλω κι' επορώ (x2)

I lost my homeland
I cried and felt pain (x2)
I'm crying and I'm longing, oh-oh
I can't forget (x2)

Chorus:
Μίαν κι' άλλο ΄σην ζωή μ'
σο πεγάδι μ' σην αυλή μ' (x2)
Νέροπον ας έπινα, όι-όι
και τ' ομμάτια μ' έπλυνα (x2)

Another time in my life,
in my well, in my yard (x2)
I wish I could drink water, oh-oh
and wash my eyes (x2)

Τά ταφία μ' έχασα
ντ' έθαψα κι' ενέσπαλα (x2)
Τ' εμετέρτς αναστορώ, όι-όι
και ΄ς σο ψυόπο μ' κουβαλώ (x2)

I lost my graves,
the people I buried but never forget (x2)
I remember my relatives, oh-oh
and I'm carrying them in my soul (x2)

Chorus:
Μίαν κι' άλλο ΄σην ζωή μ'
σο πεγάδι μ' σην αυλή μ' (x2)
Νέροπον ας έπινα, όι-όι
και τ' ομμάτια μ' έπλυνα (x2)

Another time in my life,
in my well, in my yard (x2)
I wish I could drink water, oh-oh
and wash my eyes (x2)

Εκκλησίας έρημα,
μοναστήρια ακάντηλα (x2)
πόρτας και παράθυρα, όι-όι
επέμναν ακρόνυχτα (x2)

Empty churches,
monasteries without candles (x2)
doors and windows, oh-oh
are left wide open

Chorus:
Μίαν κι' άλλο ΄σην ζωή μ'
σο πεγάδι μ' σην αυλή μ' (x2)
Νέροπον ας έπινα, όι-όι
και τ' ομμάτια μ' έπλυνα (x2)

Another time in my life,
in my well, in my yard (x2)
I wish I could drink water, oh-oh
and wash my eyes (x2)
