"You close" ("Klineis" - κλείνεις"

There is no "klinas". It is "klineis" ("κλείνεις") which means "you close".
The translation os the passage, would be "you close your eyes from the outside only to kiss me (he means "you only close your eyelids"), you turn off the lights so you won't see that you want me, but I will again be the reason you'll stay up, I'll be the snuff on your burning cigarette..."

Everything else is correct in Lefteris answer. But the part with the kiss is not in the part to be translated :-)

Although it would also sound good :-))
