2. Aici (Here)
Carla's Dreams, INNA, Irina Rimes, The Motans
Istorii, în fiecare bloc
Și din amintiri creăm istorii
Din care am păstrat doar două jucării
Familii, legate în timp, păstrate în mulțime
Stories in each block
And from memories we create stories
From which we kept only two toys
Families, linked in time, kept in the crowd

Vreau să ai curajul pentru primul pas
Fără hartă, fără compas
Să mă lași să fiu eu ghidul tău

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
Te-am rugat pe tine să-mi alegi culoarea ochilor

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

5. La nunta asta (At this wedding)
Lia Taburcean
Eu îs fată tinerică, tre' să fiu cuminte

Dar eu m-am săturat să stau la colţ de masă
Eu azi m-am îmbrăcat în rochia acea frumoasă

But I'm fed up to sit at the corner of the table
Today I got dressed in that beautiful dress

De câte ori te văd simt că înnebunesc
