ALL THAT IS ME

all that is me
just a few phrases, one melody
it’s all that is me


and this made me feel certain
only this

made me feel certain

I’m still here


don’t tell me

with smiles of a cynic
how to live

without that fragment of stolen power
you’re no one now

all that is me
just a few phrases, one melody
it’s all that is me


trust me
it’s all that is me

English translation: Zdzisław “The Bat” Zabierzewski

 

TOO LONG I’VE BEEN SLEEPING

when I am lulled to sleep by happy thinking
and wake to this void and fear
then I think, in my dream
I see doubt sneak in
to eat me

too long I’ve been sleeping
too much I’ve been wishing
and wishing much
is very draining
wishing much
is awfully draining

too long I’ve been sleeping
‘cos I have been fearing
that I’m not enough now
for one whole day
that me is too little
for one whole day

I could not start loving
myself
in the morning
I went back
to sleep

so it goes each morning
life can bite from each corner
each duvet corner

so slowly I tame my day

English translation: Zdzisław “The Bat” Zabierzewski

 

YOU DOUBT ME WHEN I SAY I LOVE YOU

you doubt me when I say I love you
I don’t trust my own tactic
love meaning so much will always sound dramatic

I say ‘love’ when this feeling’s shouting within me
I'd give you all thinks
and want to get your every thing
can’t get enough now

you doubt me when I say I love you
I don’t trust my own tactic
love meaning so much will always sound dramatic


all my loving is growing so big
that there ain’t room ever
no room for me
or for you 

it’s transient – we’re lucky
eyes are meeting and looking
to tell stories to each other

you doubt me when I say I love you ...

English translation: Zdzisław “The Bat” Zabierzewski

 

EVERY WORD

every word
you used to hurt
the heart close to you
will find you

reappear when you are so weak
it will be a tortured memory
it will find you
when you are defenceless
and will haunt your every dream

every word
you used to hurt
the heart close to you
will find you

as you fall deep into your dreams
room soaked in your tears

bitter voice of the heart
it remembers
very word

English translation: Jarek Rosiński

 

 

FEEDING ON MY DREAMS

I am feeding on my dreams
While my regrets, they consume me
But that's better than life with no hope

I am sharing my weakness
Courage and fear they tear me apart
That's still better than life without me

I am feeding on my dreams
I am sharing my weakness

I wonder that this world has not devoured me

English translation: Jarek Rosiński
