THIS TOWN REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING / NA NEŠTO ME SJEĆA TAJ GRAD


Na nešto me sjeća taj grad

Na nešto me sjeća taj grad
Tri kuće na trgu i zastave
Zvuk neba je topal i jak
A ljudi su sjeli pod hrastove

Budi mi se stara čežnja...
Tu je bio njen visoki prozor
Da ga ne gledam
Da ga ne gledam
Svoj strmi hod kroz sjene
Birao sam sâm
A danas ugovor ističe

Budi mi se stara čežnja...

Reci im barem da ostave vrata
Dugo smo skupa i skoro smo braća
Da vidim zeleno i da vidim plavo
Dok nosi me đavo
Oprosti, vrijeme je varavo

I budi mi se stara čežnja... 

This town reminds me of something

This town reminds me of something
Three houses at a square and flags
The sound of the sky is warm and strong
And people have sat down under oak trees

The old longing is awakening in me...

Over there was her high window
For me not to look at it
For me not to look at it
My steep walk through shadows
I had chosen on my own
And today the contract expires

The old longing is awakening in me...

Tell them at least to leave the door
We’ve been together for a long time
And we’re almost brothers
Let me see the green and let me see the blue
While the devil is taking me away
Sorry, the weather is unsettled

And the old longing is awakening in me...

(translated by Gavrilo Došen)
