Iris & Felicia Filip - Baby

May 2009

Pay attention to 1:47... when Felicia starts singing and the audience erupts with delirious joy, you can hear and feel the grateful smile in her voice.

If IRIS composed this song in English, then millions more people could also enjoy its beauty. Here's my humble contribution to that goal, an attempt to translate the lyrics into English.

Versuri în română English lyrics
Cristi Minculescu:
Cât am fost de singur, tu nu ai știut How lonely I have felt, you really did not know
Ți-ai ferit mereu privirea, de la început You have always looked away, right from the get go
Anii trec, și viața merge iar Years pass, and life goes on again
Te caut zi și noapte, te caut, dar știu că e-n zadar I look for you day and night, I'm looking, but I know it's in vain
Felicia Filip:
Baby știu acum că mergi să întâlnești Baby I know that you will meet face to face
Un străin ce te va duce, la casa din povești With a stranger who will take you, to a fairy tale place
Ce noroc, ce mare nenoroc What a blessing, and what a heavy bane
Că timpul stinge totul, că focul naște foc That time is quenching all, that blaze engenders blaze
Both:
Mai dă o zi din viața ta From your life give one more day
Acelui om care spunea: To the man who used to say:
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ca un răsărit de soare, după noaptea grea As the sunrise always follows, on the darkest night
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ești unica iubire... Unica iubire, ultima... You're the only love I had... Only love I had, the last...
Cristi:
Umbra noastră se așterne în trecut Our shadow's slowly falling, deep into the past
Nimeni nu era ca noi, când ne-am cunoscut Nobody was like us, when we came across
Felicia:
Ne vom preface, ca și pân-acum We will pretend, just as we have so far
Că totul este bine, dar noi vom fi doar fum That everything is well, but we will be just fog
Both:
Mai dă o zi din viața ta From your life give one more day
Acelui om care spunea: To the man who used to say:
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ca un răsărit de soare, după noaptea grea As the sunrise always follows, on the darkest night
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ești unica iubire... Unica iubire You're the only love I had... Only love I had...
Cristi:
E toamnă-n viața mea totul este scrum It's autumn in my life everything is ash
știam că vei pleca dar lasă-mă să-ți spun: I knew that you would leave but let me tell you thus:
Both:
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ca un răsărit de soare, după noaptea grea As the sunrise always follows, on the darkest night
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ca un răsărit de soare, după noaptea grea As the sunrise always follows, on the darkest night
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ești unica iubire... Unica iubire You're the only love I had... Only love I had...
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ca un răsărit de soare, după noaptea grea As the sunrise always follows, on the darkest night
Baby, baby, baby, tu vei fi a mea Baby, baby, baby, you'll be only mine
Ești unica iubire... Unica iubire, ultima... You're the only love I had... Only love I had, the last...
Cristi:
Tu vei fi a mea... ! You'll be only mine... !
