All the ghosts, all the monsters

all the miles between us

are parading past.

The concert didn’t go badly, but your visage,

in its silence, hovered over the audience,

leaving its imprint on my eyes.

 

I don´t want to feel like a stranger tonight

so far from everything I love.

And night has never been this dark.

Come with me,

I don´t want to lie down alone.

This fog and the street’s damp light

has me crazed.

Here I am in Minsk weeping with longing.

 

On the way to the Hotel, I listened to Silvio [Rodríguez]

fog obscures the great square,

the square of the Victory that was lost.

Reflected in Svislash river I saw

that summer’s sun, that summer’s blue,

and now it seems so far away.

 

I don´t want to feel like a stranger tonight

so far from everything I love.

And night has never been this dark.

Come with me,

I don´t want to lie down alone.

This fog and the street’s damp light

has me crazed.

Here I am in Minsk weeping with longing.

 

Come with me, we will burn this winter

the morning will come and force back the fog,

light will spill into the streets.

And here I am in Minsk singing alone.
