Come, Nights´s Darkness


Tule, öö pimedus,

võta mind sülle.


Minu päike ei tunne mind,

öö jäänd mulle.


Ainust tähte sääl pole,

minul on kole.


Varja mu üle.


Come, Nights´s Darkness


Come, night´s darkness,

gather me to your lap.


My sun doesn´t recongize me,

the night is left to me.


There´s not a single star,

I am in fear.


Cover me.
