Lyrics

Učinila si, srce moje,
Što nisu znale druge žene,
Od prvog dana, prve smjene,
Ti si ko vojnik stala uz mene.
Ja nisam znao zlatne oči
I nisam sreo svijetlog lica,
Dok nisi plaho prišla meni
I postala mi suložnica.
Jer mislio sam, kakva iskustva,
Da nisi stvarna, da si sjena,
Sve dok mi nisi dala usta
I dok mi nisi postala žena.
Sad iza nas su godine divlje
I iza nas je bezumna hajka,
Prašnjavi puti, morske milje,
Jer mi smo danas otac i majka.
Nama je uvijek bilo svejedno
Da li smo na dnu il' na vrhuncu,
Dok moje lice Mjesec gleda
Tvoje je okrenuto Suncu.
Jer mislio sam, kakva iskustva,
Da nisi stvarna, da si sjena,
Sve dok mi nisi dala usta
I dok mi nisi postala žena.
Ona me opet diže i hrabri
I moje vječne rane vida,
Sad nam je lakše, sad nam je ljepše,
Otkad smo smjerni baka i dida.

Lyrics translation

You did, my heart,
What other women didn't know,
From the first day, first shift,
You were standing next to me like a soldier.
I didn't know Golden eyes
And I never saw a bright face,
Before you get close to me
And she became my assistant.
Because I thought what an experience,
That you're not real, that you're a shadow,
Until you gave me my mouth
And until you became my wife.
Now the wild years are behind us
And we are being followed senselessly,
Dusty roads, sea miles,
Because today we are father and mother.
We always didn't care
We are at the bottom or at the peak,
While my face is looking at the Moon
Your face in the Sun.
Because I thought what an experience,
That you're not real, that you're a shadow,
Until you gave me my mouth
And until you became my wife.
She lifts me up again and brave
And my eternal early visions,
Now we feel better.,
Since we became grandparents.
