dacă nu ar fi nu s-ar povesti

dacă nu ar fi nu s-ar povesti

mi-am părăsit țara ca un suflet

care-și părăsește corpul

și rătăcește în eter sperând

să mai poată locui în altul

 

eu de rătăcit am rătăcit

prin câmpiile elizeene

dar n-am mai găsit

un corp de trăit  

In a make-believe land

I left my country

as a soul leaves its body

to wander in the ether

hoping to find another one to live in

 

I wandered and lost my way

through the Elysian fields

but yet, I didn't find

another body to live with.

Translation: Adriana Pietrăreanu

histoire à dormir debout

j’ai quitté mon pays

comme une âme quitte son corps

pour errer dans l’éther

espérant habiter dans un autre

 

moi j’ai erré comme un bateau ivre

dans les champs élyséens

mais je n’ai plus trouvé

un corps à vivre

Traduction : Radu Bata

Droomland

Ik heb mijn land verlaten,

zoals een ziel zijn lichaam verlaat

om rond te dwalen in het uitspansel

in de hoop er een ander te vinden.

 

Ik heb rondgedwaald als een zwalpend schip

door de Elysese velden,

maar ik heb geen ander lichaam gevonden

om in te huizen.
