In your mother tongue

lyrics by Grigore Vieru, song by Tudor Gheorghe

All the people in the world
Cry in the same language.
In the same language
An entire Earth laughs.
Only in your mother tongue
You can comfort the pain,
And the joy
You can change into song.

Refrain:

In your mother tongue
You miss your mother,
And wine is more wine,
And lunch is more lunch.
And only in your mother tongue
You can laugh by yourself,
And only in your mother tongue
You can stop crying.

And when you can’t
Cry or laugh,
When you cannot caress
Or sing,
With your land,
With your sky in front of you,
You are quiet then
In your mother tongue.
