An m'agapas by Tania Tsanaklidou

Not by any means a new hit. 'An m'agapas' is perhaps one of the most characterstic and beautiful hymns that marked living in greece in the late 70's or early 80's in Greece. Tania's extraordinary voice led her to a very succesful carreer with a refined audience at a safe distance from Greek Pop. 

An m'agapas means "If you love me.."
If you love me.. I'll steal colours of the fire and a white linen. 
The two of us will re-sketch life. 
If you love me.. there will be no grey for you to watch, 
you'll hold me 
and to ceremonial shores you will take me. 
But if all these, which seem like crazy dreams, become a roar. 
If all these, and whatever I've imagined, doesn't come. 
It will be a loss, the light will become dark, and will vanish, 
because perhaps.. for me the world is you.. only you..
