Lyrics

Sada ležišna dnu vode,
Iznad tebe šaši trava,
Kao leptir koji ode,
Kao dijete koje spava.
Nikad nije tvoje lice
U snu bilo tako bijelo,
Kao krilo mrtve ptice
Rijekom plovi tvoje tijelo.
Dok te ljulja val za valom
Sanjašda si opet živa,
Slatki bol u srcu malom
Tvoje nježne nade skriva.
Na svom ležaju od mulja
Tvoje mrtvo srce sanja,
Dok te ruka vode ljulja
Tiho plovišispod granja.
Kao ljiljan ti si pala
U taj hladni ponor vode,
Cvijeće koje tu si brala
S tobom plovi, s tobom ode.
Dok iz tamnog groba svoga
Gledašsrne što te prate,
Dok iz šume pjesma roga
Poput kiše pada na te…
Ispod vode, iz svog mraka,
Prije sna i prije zime,
Ti ćeščuti glas dječaka
Koji zove tvoje ime.
Sada ležišna dnu vode,
Iznad tebe šaši trava,
Kao leptir koji ode,
Kao dijete koje spava…

Lyrics translation

Now lying at the bottom of the water,
Above you are a handful of herbs,
Like a butterfly that leaves,
Like a sleeping child.
It's never your face
It was so white in the dream,
Like the wing of a dead bird
Your body is floating on the river.
While you pump wave after wave of
You dream that you are alive again,
Sweet heartache
Your tender hopes are hidden.
On her bed of slime
Your dead heart is dreaming,
While the hand of water rocks you
You are calmly floating on a branch.
Like a Lily you fell
Into this cold Gulf of water,
The flowers you took
It sails with you, with you.
Until from the dark grave of his
You look like you're being followed.,
While from the forest the horn song
How the rain falls on you…
Under water, out of the dark,
Before bedtime and before winter,
You will hear the boy's voice
Who calls your name.
Now lying at the bottom of the water,
Above you are a handful of herbs,
Like a butterfly that leaves,
Like a child who sleeps…
