The most Dangerous Man in Estonia (Estonian + English)


Tal polnud relva ega minevikku
(He had neither gun nor past)
And yet I smelled the smoke of an odorless blaze
Tema silmad olid nagu tuli, mille kohal linnud lendavad
(His eyes were like the fire over which the birds pass)
And the lake Võrts smoked as if under an evil spell
Võta mu käest ja liitu minuga linnadest kaugel
(Take my hand, join me far from the cities)
I drank all the water from the Baltic Sea, my body turned to ice
Kas lasete mind läbi udu
(What are you waiting for to shoot me through the mist)?
The hills of Haanja are covered with red flowers
Tal polnud relva ega minevikku
(He had neither gun nor past)
He was the most dangerous man in Estonia, he had murdered the starless night
Võta mu käest, laseme kaduda nagu keedetud vesi
(Take my hand, let’s disappear like evaporating water)
I ran into the taiga, your face was floating between the blue trees
Tal polnud relva ega minevikku
(He had no gun, no past)
The Baltic orchid dies, its petals fall into the Karula lake
Kõneleva jõe kohal lendas must lind
(A black bird flew over a talkative river)
The lynx accompanied me all these hours, to the calm waters of the lake Ähijärv.
Mu unenägu jäi nagu hellitus mu juustele
(My dream lingered like a caress on my hair)
I met the most dangerous man in Estonia, I sat on a bed of pink berries
Kirjutasin tema loo, sest olin oma riigi kõige hullem kirjanik
(I told his past, because I was the craziest writer in my country)
A good story is like moonlight on the icy waters of the Baltic
Pilt, mida tuhandeid kordi räägiti, mida lapsed armastavad
(It’s a story told a thousand times, which children love)
On the cloud that carries away dreams in the forest of blue mist
