Hre's the full translation
DARK (BLACK EYES)
Black and burning eyes, black as midnight skies
Full of passion flame, full of lovely game
I'm in love with you, I'm afraid of you.
Days when I met you made me sad and blue.
Often in my dreams I can see your beams,
eyes of rivalry burning through my skin.
But when I wake up, night's in black make up
Nobody's here, only night is dark
It's on purpose you're deeper than abyss
I can see in you mourning for my bliss
I can see in you that triumphal flame
where my poor heart has been burnt in vain.
Black and flaming eyes, deep as midnight skies
They are calling me to fly overseas
Where love is king, kind is everything
No misery, no sword nor sting.
Having not met you, I would suffer less,
I would live my life having happiness.
You have ruined me once, black and flaming eyes
And from that black date, you've changed all my fate.
But I am not sad, still alive not dead.
Now my fortune is to love you in peace.
And the best reward, gifted me by Lord,
I will sacrifice to the burning eyes.
