And the night meets the sunrise

Newtukwa'lukwey ni'n kmtniktuk
I'm alone on the mountain

Me' nutul nitape'skw toqo mu eimu'n
I can still hear you though you're not here

Wju'sniktuk wet-nutmann
I hear them from the wind

Love songs now

Je kisa'likl mikwite'lmul ap ki'l
Which even cause me to remember you again

Ta'njiw na'kuset ne'a'sij kmtniktuk
When the sun appears from the mountain

Aq wela'kw a'sîkîk wejkwapniaq
And the night meets the sunrise
