Encara veig al lluny els llums de ma ciutat. I el nostre petit niu Amagat entre el ramatge. Sé que la lluna És al darrera d'aquests arbres. I en la penombra d'aquest bosc Jo puc fer entrar Una carícia de llum Tendra sobre els teus ulls Tan sols obrint una cortina de fullatge.

In the distance, I still see the lights of my city. And our little nest hidden in the branches. I know that the moon is shining behind these trees. And, into the penumbra of this forest, I can bring a caress of light softly on my eyes only by pulling back a curtain of foliage.
