Lyrics

Na kraju života, neke stare žene
Žive mjesto tebe, žive mjesto mene.
Sve što nisu mogle, sve što nisu znale,
Na lomaču nose, na lomači pale.
Po klupama parka ljubavnike love
I svoj poraz nude za njihove snove.
Za te što se vole, za te što se ljube,
Znaju samo riječi umorne i grube.
A kome to treba i zašto to rade?
Neke od njih nikad nisu bile mlade.
Melju svoje dane zubima od zlata
Zureći u tuđe prozore i vrata.
Davno je to bilo i ne zna se više
Kakve riječi ljubav na postelji piše,
Nikad neće znati stojeći na straži
Što to moja ruka na tvom tijelu traži,
Ni zašto te trebam sada tu u tami,
Ni zašto smo skupa, ni zašto smo sami,
Ni kamo će pasti, dok sva zvona zvone,
Taj brod što se ljulja, ta lađa što tone.

Lyrics translation

At the end of life some old women
The living place of you, the living place of me.
Everything they couldn't, everything they didn't know,
On a fire they carry, on a fire burns.
On Park benches lovers love
And they offer their defeat for their dreams.
For the fact that they love each other, for the fact that they kiss,
They only know the words tired and rude.
And who needs it and why do they do it?
Some of them were never young.
They grind their days with teeth of gold
Looking at other people's Windows and doors.
It was a long time ago and is no longer known
What words does love write on the bed,
He'll never know when he's on guard
What is my hand on your body looking for?,
And why do I need you now in the dark?,
Neither why we are together, nor why we are alone,
Nor where it will fall while all the bells are ringing,
The ship that rocks, the ship that sinks.
