Emina Jahović & Dženan Lončarević – Beograd priča

Beograd priča kol’ko sam te volela
a trebalo bi da sam te prebolela
mudrost je poklon života
kad više ti ne treba

Beograd priča kol’ko sam te voleo
ma laže vino, nisam te preboleo
džaba mi ove daljine
bez karte i putnika

I svaki put kada mi suza niz lice krene
ja znaću to da nikad nisi ni bio uz mene
a bol k’o bol u ovoj kafani uvek bira isti sto
da popije laž

I svaki put kada mi ona iz kuće pođe
ja znaću da od bolje loze bolje si grožđe
a to sam ja, između neba i zemlje uvek sam blizu dna
ti najbolje znaš

Beograd priča da sam se izmijenila
pola me nema, da sam s nama umrla
tuga nije grehota
al’ za sramotu znam

Beograd priča da sam se izmenio
da više nisam onaj stari
što te podigne
to te još brže pokvari

Koga nema bez nega se može
al’ ti tu si ispod kože
traješ k’o zlato koje više
nema sjaj

U nama ista tuga živi
za to smo podjednako krivi
k’o ogladnele zveri
jedno smo drugom kraj

English Translation

Belgrade’s Talking

Belgrade’s talking about how much I loved you
but it should be how I got over you
wisdom is the gift of life
when you aren’t needed anymore

Belgrade’s talking about how much I loved you
the wine’s lying, I didn’t get over you
this distance is nothing to me
with a map and passengers

And every time when a tear drops from my face
I will know then that you were never even with me
and pain like pain, in this cafe he always picks the same table
to drink lies

And every time when she passes by my house
I will now that from the best Rakija you are the best grape
and that is me, in between the sky and earth I am always close to the ground
you know it best

Belgrade’s talking that I have changed
half of me is gone, that I have died with you
sorrow isn’t a sin
but it knows of shame

Belgrade’s talking that I have changed
that I am not the old me anymore
what raises you
the faster its ruined

Anyone that doesn’t have him/her can go on
but you are here under my skin
you’re going on like gold which
has lost its shine

In us lives the same sorrow
for that we are both at fault
like a hungry beast
we are each other’s end
