meli Salo tan jan Emiwi

"Shalott", Emilie Autumn

ijo li lon insa tomo e meli ni, meli li pali e ilo len sike
meli li ken ala alasa e nasin pilin
meli li toki e ni: “tomo ni li kama ma moli mi la
jan ala li ken weka e mi tan lon ni”

She's locked up with a spinning wheel
She can't recall what it was like to feel
She says, 'This room's gonna be my grave
And there is no one who can save me.'

meli li sin pali e linja kule
meli li sona e jan olin ante ni: jan li open oko lon supa

She sits down to her coloured thread
She knows lovers waking up in their bed

meli li toki ni: “tempo seme la mi ken tawa sama ni,
jan ni li lon ala lon: mi ken pana e mani tawa jan tawa ni: jan ken weka mi tan tomo
mi wile tan ni: mi lukin e pimija la mi pilin pi sijelo ike
mi wile lukin e laso suli
jan ale li ken lukin e ni: suno li anpa
mi ken ala tan seme?

She says, 'How long can I live this way
Is there no on I can pay to let me go
'Cause I'm half sick of shadows
I wanna see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the sun goes down
So why can't I

telo li anpa
mun lili li anpa tan pimeja suli
kon tawa en
kon tawa li lete. mi sona e ni
mi awen
tawa tempo suno ni:
kin la tempo ni la mi moli

And it's raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it's cold
I've been waiting
For the day I will surely die

ni lon tomo ni,
ni lon ma ni. jan li toki e ni:
kin la tempo pi sijelo pona la mi moli,
kin la mi sona e kon tawa li lete

And it's here
And it's here for I've been told
That I'll die before I'm old
And the wind I know it's cold...

meli li lukin sewi e supa suno sama
meli li lukin e soweli tawa e mije lon sowelin ni:
soweli en mije li tawa li awen ala

She looks up to the mirrored glass
She sees a handsome horse and rider pass

meli li toki e ni: “mije ni li moli e mi,
ni li tan ni: tempo ale la mi wile e mije ni taso.
taso mije li sona ala e nimi kin mi.
meli ale li sama tawa ona.
kin la mi wile tawa tan tomo ni li ken ala
ni li tan ni: tempo pimeja tu la mi ken ala awen
ni li tan ni: mi pilin ike lili tan pimeja
mi ken lukin ala e laso suli
jan ale li ken lukin e telo suli ni: telo li kama sewi.
mi ken ala tan seme?

She say, 'That man's gonna be my death
'Cause he's all I ever wanted in my life
And I know he doesn't know my name
And that all the girls are all the same to him
But still I've got to get out of this place
'Cause I don't think I can face another night
Where I'm half sick of shadows
And I can't see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the tide comes in
So why can't I

(repeat refrain)

taso kasi suli pi telo oko li lon ni,
ni en kon lili en telo tawa en tomo supa en kasi kule li lon ni
tempo pimeja ale la ni en suno mun li lon ni,
tempo ni la mi awen lon tomo palisa.
moli mi li kama
taso mi kalama e olin mi tawa mije olin kepeken kon pini mi
mije ni li lukin e sinpin mi lon ma ante,
pimeja suli li sewi

But there's willow trees
And little breezes, waves and walls and flowers
And there's moonlight every single night
As I'm locked in these towers
So I'll meet my death
But with my last breath I'll sing to him I love
And he'll se my face in another place
And with that the glass above.'

pimeja li pakala kin li kama ko
Cracked into a million bits

meli li kalama e ni: “sitelin nimi li sitelin e mi,
taso tempo ale la mi ken sona e ni
tempo kama la jan Emiwi li sitelen e kalama nimi tawa mi”

And she cried out, 'So the story fit
But then I could have guessed it all along
'Cause now some drama queen is gonna write a song for me.'

meli ni li tawa anpa tawa tomo telo tawa ona,
meli li pakala e linja awen li kama tawa lon telo
tempo telo loje li kama kiwen lon insa meli la meli li toki e ni:
ijo ni li sona e ijo mi
mi sona e ni: mi wile e pakala ni
mi sona e nasin mi. nasin li tawa moli
jan ale li ken lukin e sitelen lape pi ona mute ni: sitelen li kama pakala
mi ken ala tan seme?

She went down to her little boat
And she broke the chains and began to float away
And as the blood froze in her veins she said,
'Well then that explains a thing or two
'Cause I know I'm the cursed one
I know I'm meant to die
Everyone else can watch as there dreams untie
So why can't I

(repeat refrain 2x)
