La guerra civile era ancora in corso quando Tsitsanis compose questa rebetika che avrebbe avuto ancora maggiore successo anni dopo.

Da un’intervista a Dimitra Galani sul disco Ta Oraía Tou Tsitsáni

Just before 1973 Dimitra gets a sudden phone call. On the line was Vasilis Tsitsanis. He asked her to sing his songs. “‘Great honor ‘ I said, ‘ I can make it? ‘You’re a laika (popular) singer and you haven’t understood it!’ he replied”. “Seashores, sunsets” (Ακρογιαλιές δειλινά -1973) was one of a relatively forgotten old songs of him that he then renewed for her voice. “You will consider that these songs were made for you and now they find their voice” he said. Later in 1975 he composed especially for her two more songs, the only singer of her generation for whom he had done it.

[Riccardo Gullotta]
Βραδιάζει γύρω κι η νύχτα
απλώνει σκοτάδι βαθύ
κορίτσι ξένο σαν ίσκιος
πλανιέται μονάχο στην γη

Χωρίς ντροπή, αναζητεί
τον ήλιο που έχει χαθεί,
στα σκοτάδια να βρει

Μπορεί να το ‘χουν πλανέψει
ακρογιαλιές δειλινά
και σκλαβωμένη για πάντα
κρατούνε την δόλια καρδιά

Μπορεί ακόμα μπορεί,
να έχει πια τρελαθεί
και τότε ποιος θα ρωτήσει
να μάθει ποτέ το γιατί

Traduzione italiana / Μετέφρασε στα ιταλικά / Italian translation / Traduction italienne / Italiankielinen käännös:

Sta imbrunendo e la notte
spiega un velo tenebroso
una ragazza, estranea, come ombra
vaga solinga per la terra.

Impudica, lei è in cerca
del sole che è già andato,
nel buio.

Potrebbe essere stata sedotta
da lidi e tramonti
o assoggettato per sempre
potrebbe essere il suo cuore derelitto.

Anche potrebbe, chissà,
essere andata fuori di senno
e poi a chi calerebbe di chiedere
e di scoprire il perché.
