Kristi Stassinopoulou


(from the album « Echotropia » music: Kalyviotis, lyrics: Stassinopoulou)


The seas in the mountains, in the rivers the lakes

In life entangled, memories of other lives

Loves forgotten, brothers, enemies and friends

Nations, tribes faded away, as history unravels


I tie the string of moments

To the spinning wheel of time

I roll it and unroll it

And only love remains

Only love remains

Only love…


In joy the tears, laughter in pain

Times and years, sand, in history’s hands

All is hidden in the oblivion’s akasha archives

Secretly dominating, man’s course in life
