Ey! özgürlük – Hey! Freedom – Ω! Ελευθερία

i write your name in school on my notebook, on my desk on trees
i write your name in leafs read, in so white pages
in bombs in guns in crown of kings with light sign
i write
your name in the best nights, in white (clear) bread of days
in fields and in horizon, in wing of birds
in shadow, in path having waken up,in way spreading out
in very crowded areas, i do your name,

hey freedom!

i write your name
in my doorstep, in my bowl things, in the fire in it
in games of souls, on lips awake i write your name
in house ruined, in lights faded away, in walls of my sorrow
in space which cant help longing for, in naked loneliness

i write your name
in healthiness which is available, in all danger which has passed away

i write your name, i write
with enthusiasm of one word, i am turning back to life
i have been born for you, for shouting

hey freedom!

Mikis Theodorakis & Zülfü Livaneli – Drapetsona (Live) 1997
