    Default Εσύ δε φταις- Γιώργος Μαζωνάκης

    Here I am!
    Well, you know the story, whenever someone has the time and the mood, I will appreaciate the effort!
    I wish you a nice evening!
    Και ευχαριστώ!


    Εσύ δε φταις (You are not to blame?)

    Εσύ δε φταις
    Μην κατεβάζεις το κεφάλι
    Απλά το χτες
    Δε θα γυρίσει πίσω πάλι
    Εσύ δεν φταις
    Δική μου είναι η ευθύνη
    Που το κεφάλαιο, εμείς οι δύο, κλείνει
    Εσύ δεν φταις
    Μην πολεμάς τον εαυτό σου
    Λίγες φορές
    Το λάθος ήτανε δικό σου
    Εσύ δεν φταις
    Εγώ για όλα έχω φταίξει
    Από την πρώτη τη στιγμή, την πρώτη λέξη

    Ξέρω μόνο έναν τρόπο ν’ αγαπάω
    Κι ας μη βγάζει πουθενά, το παραδέχομαι
    Πουθενά, το ξέρω, φρένο δεν πατάω
    Και με τίποτα στα μέτρα σου δεν έρχομαι

    Εσύ δε φταις
    Μην τσαλακώνεις την καρδιά σου
    Παλιές πληγές
    Με διώχνουν τώρα μακριά σου
    Εσύ δεν φταις
    Η τύχη μου για όλα φταίει
    Που να μ’ αφήσει λίγο ήσυχο δε λέει

    Ξέρω μόνο έναν τρόπο ν’ αγαπάω
    Κι ας μη βγάζει πουθενά, το παραδέχομαι
    Πουθενά το ξέρω φρένο δεν πατάω
    Και με τίποτα στα μέτρα σου δεν έρχομαι

    I may as well try to translate it for myself...that is if someone will be so kind as to tell me where I am completely wrong....

    Taking another exam, I guess....

    Εσύ δε φταις -You are not to blame
    Μην κατεβάζεις το κεφάλι- Don't "bend" the head
    Απλά το χτες- Simply the yesterday
    Δε θα γυρίσει πίσω πάλι -will not come back again
    Εσύ δεν φταις- You are not to blame
    Δική μου είναι η ευθύνη- Mine is the responsability
    Που το κεφάλαιο, εμείς οι δύο, κλείνει ??????, the two of us, closes?????
    Εσύ δεν φταις- You are not to blame
    Μην πολεμάς τον εαυτό σου- Don't fight with yourself
    Λίγες φορές- Few times
    Το λάθος ήτανε δικό σου -The mistake was yours
    Εσύ δεν φταις- You are not to blame
    Εγώ για όλα έχω φταίξει - I, for everything, was to blame
    Από την πρώτη τη στιγμή, την πρώτη λέξη- From the first moment, the first word

    Ξέρω μόνο έναν τρόπο ν’ αγαπάω - I know only one way to love
    Κι ας μη βγάζει πουθενά, το παραδέχομαι- And even if it doesn't lead anywhere, I admit it
    Πουθενά, το ξέρω, φρένο δεν πατάω- Nowhere, I know it, I don't press the break ???
    Και με τίποτα στα μέτρα σου δεν έρχομαι- And with nothing I come in your way ???

    Εσύ δε φταις- You are not to blame
    Μην τσαλακώνεις την καρδιά σου- Don't "bother" your heart
    Παλιές πληγές Old wounds
    Με διώχνουν τώρα μακριά σου- Turn me now away from you ???
    Εσύ δεν φταις- You are not to blame
    Η τύχη μου για όλα φταίει- My luck is to blame for everything
    Που να μ’ αφήσει λίγο ήσυχο δε λέει- ????????

    Μπράβο σου, "dya" ... !!! ... το "παππού" είναι το σωστό για "κλητική" (=vocative) ...


    I am happy you seem to have "secured" ... "previous lessons" ... !!! ...

    Do you think I'm playing here?! Of course I learn and remember, otherwise all your work would be in vain! Which is not the case, as you see!

    Ohhhh....ευχαριστώ!!!!
    I'll take a moment to feel proud about myself!!!

    First of all, there are a few lines which I could't figure out for anything in the world!!
    1. Που το κεφάλαιο, εμείς οι δύο, κλείνει

    2. Που να μ’ αφήσει λίγο ήσυχο δε λέει

    Then, I'm not sure if I got the right meaning for these ones:
    3. Πουθενά, το ξέρω, φρένο δεν πατάω- Nowhere, I know it, I don't press the break ???
    Και με τίποτα στα μέτρα σου δεν έρχομαι- And with nothing I come in your way ???

    4. Με διώχνουν τώρα μακριά σου- Turn me now away from you ???

    5.Μην τσαλακώνεις την καρδιά σου- Don't "bother" your heart . What exactly does τσαλακώνω( is this the "infinitive? ) mean?

    Did you miss my endless lists of questions? Here you are!!! LOL!!!

    ... ... well, ... I always "enjoy" being "kept on my feet" ... "students" that don't "partake" make "lessons" DREARY ... !!! ... and noone could accuse YOU of "that", dya ... !!! ... !!! ...


    OK !!! ... Firstly, ... some "general comments", ... "annotations" ... !!! ...

    ... Number 1) - the "sentences" you are inquiring about are in fact "secondary sentences" ... therefore, need to be taken in account with "their primary" ones ... !!! ...

    ... Number 2) - the reason why you wouldn't get the "meaning" of some "phrases", is simply because you are not (YET) familiar with ... "Greekisms" ... !!! ...


    Yes !!! ... do take another moment to feel proud ... !!! ... your "exam-papers" show an extremely well "comprehension" ... !!! ... !!! ...

    Ok, but the word το κεφάλαιο means capital or asset ?!?! So I don't see the connection? Or could it be market and it means that "for the two of us the market has closed?!?!"
