Kalenić

Otkuda moje oči
Na licu tvome
Anđele brate
Boje sviću
Na ivici zaborava
Tuđe senke ne daju
Munju tvoga mača
U korice da vratim
Boje zru
Na lakoj grani vremena
Otuda tvoj inat lepi
U uglu usana mojih
Anđele brate
Boje gore
Mladošću u mojoj krvi

Kalenics

Why my eyes
On your face
Angel brother?

Colours dawn
On the edge of oblivion

Unknown shadows
Won’t let me sheath
Your sword’s thunder

Colours ripen
On a light bough of time

Why your beautiful spite
In the corner of my lips
Angel brother?

Colours burn
In the youth of my blood.
