Stelios Kallinikou - Where are you going young man...

Cyprus : Stelios Kallinikou - Where are you going young man...

Where are you going young man, handsome like a legend

What’s wrong with my eyes?
they are open
but I can’t see a thing
or are my eyes closed?
Maybe you need time for your eyes
to adjust in the dark

This cave
It's like a womb, isn’t it?
I was born here
I only know that I was born here
Last night
I dreamt of the future…

Facing the jungle
the hills and valleys
my past lives
as an animal and other beings
rise up before me [1]

this is how Ι disappear completely [2]

That's all I ask

I'll climb the stairs
I'll enter a palace
I know it will be an illusion
I know it won't be real [3]

Where are you going
young man,
handsome like a legend [4]
