    We are both from the same village// The same height, the same curly hair// The same way of speaking – What else can I add?// We’re both from the same village.// We’re both from the same village// We crossed the same field, neck-high in green// In the evening we’d go back to the village square// Because we’re both from the same village.// And on Friday nights// When a soft wind blows through the treetops// I remember you.// In the orchards and on the avenues// We’d always love the same girls// But we always used to say – never mind// It’s all in the same village. We’d run away to the same places// We fought in the same three wars// We crept on thorn and thistle// But we’d go back together to the village.// I remember, in that battle that never ended,// Suddenly I saw you get hit// And when dawn came up from the mountain// Then I brought you back to the village.// You see – here we are in the village// Almost everything is the same// I walk across a green field// And you are on the other side of the fence. And on Friday nights// When a soft wind blows through the treetops// I remember you.//
