Očiju Tvojih Da Nije

Očiju Tvojih Da Nije

Očiju tvojih da nije
Ne bi bilo neba
U slepom našem stanu

Smeha tvoga da nema
Zidovi ne bi nikad
Iz očiju nestajali

Slavuja tvojih da nije
Vrbe ne bi nikad
Nežne preko praga prešle

Ruku tvojih da nije
Sunce ne bi nikad
U snu našem prenoćilo

If Not For Your Eyes

If not for your eyes
There would be no sun
In our blind apartment

If it wasn't for your laughter
From the eyes, the walls would
Never vanish

If not for your nightingales
The willows would never
Tenderly cross the doorstep

If not for your hands
The sun would never
Stay a night in our dream

(Translated by Lazar Pašćanović)
