Tare (Strong)
Doar chitara mea și noaptea
Se preling pe pielea ta

Spunându-mi că ești a mea
Only my guitar and the night
Trickle down your skin
I want you to accompany me
Telling me that you're mine

Vreau să ai curajul pentru primul pas
Fără hartă, fără compas
Să mă lași să fiu eu ghidul tău
De-i pantă sau loc drept, la bine și la greu

Without a map, without a compass
Let me be your guide
If it's a hill or straight place, good and bad

Înainte Să Ne Fi Născut (Before We Were Born)
Înainte să ne fi născut
Te-am rugat pe tine să-mi alegi culoarea ochilor
Dar sufletele noastre erau tinere
Și nu căzuseră niciodată pe pământ
Before we were born
I asked you to choose my eye color
But our souls were young
And they never fell to Earth
The Motans' song Înainte Să Ne Fi Născut is a reflection on the idea of soulmates and the power of love.
