Original lyrics Se thimame
 
Se thimame sichna
San ton anemo na mou sfirizis
Se thimame kala
Protovrochi na me nanourizis
 
Se thimame ke den
To antecho pou den sou milao
Echo gini pnoi
Ke fisao sta chili sou epano
 
Ela ligo konta mou
Ela sta onira mou
Pes mou pou na kitaxo
Pou na petaxo gia na se vro
Pes mou pou na kitaxo
Pou na se psaxo gia na se vro

 
Se thimame sichna
Na sopenis ke go na tromazo
Se thimame kala
Na mou fevgis ke na sou fonazo
 
Se thimame ke den
To antecho pou pia den kimame
Exo gini kravgi
Ke stin opsi tou kosmou fovame
 
Ela ligo konta mou
Ela sta onira mou
Pes mou pou na kitaxo
Pou na se psaxo gia na se vro...
English lyrics It only takes a smile
 
I remember you so often
Like the wind calls out my name
I remember you so well
Like the first rain in autumn that lullaby's me
 
I remember you and I can't endure
Not to speak with you
I have been only an inspiration
And I'm breathing on your lips
 
Come closer to me
Come to my dreams
Tell me where I can look for you
Where I can flow to find you
Tell me where I can look on
Where I can look for you

 
I remember you so peaceful
And I was afraid
I remember you so well the time you leave me
And I was shouting
 
I remember you and I can't endure
Not to sleep at night
I have been an outcry and to the countenance
Of this world am so afraid
 
Come closer to me
Come to my dreams
Tell me where I can look on
Where I can look for you...
