I listen to Greek radio from time to time. This song would play regularly and it was one of my favorites if not my favorite. I had no idea what the words meant but I could feel it. I could feel the pain in the song, in his voice. That’s all that mattered.
I tried many methods to find the song so I could translate it. I wasted so much time it is embarrassing but I finally found it.
Κανείς δε ξέρει αν η ζωή σε φέρει
Κι αν σε έχει ανάγκη η πληγή να βρει μαχαίρι
Κανείς δε ξέρει πόσο μου λείπεις
Πόση ανάγκη έχει η ψυχή να μη με εγκαταλείπεις
Nobody knows if life brings you
And if you need to find the knife wound
Nobody knows how much I miss you
How does the soul need not to give up
Pain is universal. We all suffer. Some souls are tormented more than others…
