Θάνος Μικρούτσικος & Κώστας Τριπολίτης, Οι ακροβάτες
(τραγούδι: Χάρις Αλεξίου / δίσκος: η Χάρις Αλεξίου σε απρόβλεπτα τραγούδια (1987) υπό τη διεύθυνση του Μάνου Χατζιδάκι)

Οι ακροβάτες

Χωρίς περιθώρια ο έρωτάς μας
ακροβατούμε συνεχώς,

όμως ούτε και οι επαγγελματίες ακροβάτες
δεν μπορούν αυτήν την αγωνία για πάντα

ή πέφτουν κάποτε, αν ανοήτως επιμείνουν,
ή σταματούν έγκαιρα…


Our love is without margins

we’re always over the edge

even professional rope-walkers

can’t endure such continuous agony

they either fall or foolishly persist

or they stop on time…

(Translation by Manolis Aligizakis)

Από τη συλλογή Αντιμήνσιο (εκδ. Πανδώρα, Αθήνα, 2004) του Δημήτρη Κ. Τσίτου
