David Sylvian – I Surrender

I opened up the pathway of the heart
The flowers died embittered from the start
That night I crossed the bridge of sighs and I surrender

I looked back and glimpsed the outline of a boy
His life of sorrows now collapsing into joy
And tonight the stars are all aligned and I surrender

My mother cries beneath a southern sky and I surrender

Recording angels and the poets of the night
Bring back the trophies of the battles that we fight
Searchlights fill the open skies and I surrender

Outrageous cries of love have called you back
Derailed the trains of thought, demolished wayward tracks
You tell me I’ve no need to wonder why, I just surrender

I stand too close to see the sleight of hand
How she found this child inside the frightened man
Tonight I’m learning how to fly and I surrender

I’ve traveled all this way for your embrace
Enraptured by the recognition on your face
Hold me now while my old life dies tonight and I surrender

My mother cries beneath the open skies and I surrender

An ancient evening just before the fall
The light in your eyes, the meaning of it all
Birds fly and fill the summer skies and I surrender

She throws the burning books into the sea
“Come find the meaning of the word inside of me”
It’s alright, the stars are all aligned and I surrender

My mother cries beneath the moonlit skies and I surrender

My body turns to ashes in her hands
The disappearing world of footprints in the sand
Tell me now that this love will never die and I’ll surrender

My mother cries beneath the open skies and I surrender

David Sylvian - I Surrender

Prevod pesme

Predajem se

Otvorio sam put srca
Cveće je uvelo, od samog početka ogorčeno
Te noći sam prešao most uzdaha i predajem se

Pogledao sam unazad i krajičkom oka ugledao obrise jednog dečaka
Njegov život tuge sad se urušava u radost
A večeras su se zvezde namestile i ja se predajem

Moja majka plače pod južnim nebom a ja se predajem

Snimam anđele i pesnike noći
Vraćam trofeje iz bitaka koje smo bili
Reflektori prekrivaju otvoreno nebo i ja se predajem

Nečuveni vapaji ljubavi nazad su te pozvali
Izbacili iz koloseka vozove misli,  svojeglave pruge demolirali
Kažeš mi da nemam razloga da se pitam zašto, prosto se predajem

Stojim preblizu da bih video kako izvodi taj trik
Kako je pronašla ovo dete unutar preplašenog čoveka
Večeras učim da letim i predajem se

Prešao sam dalek put da bi me zagrlila
Opčinjen prepoznavanjem na tvom licu
Zagrli me sad dok večeras moj stari život umire i ja  predajem se

Moja majka plače pod otvorenim nebom i ja se predajem

Jedne drevne večeri, neposredno pre jeseni
Sjaj u tvojim očima, smisao svega
Ptice lete i ispunjavaju letnje nebo i ja se predajem

Ona baca zapaljene knjige u more
“Dođi, nađi smisao sveta u meni”
Sve je u redu, zvezde su mi naklonjene i ja se predajem

Moja majka plače pod mesečinom obasjanim nebom i ja se predajem

U njenim rukama moje telo se pretvara u pepeo
Nestajući svet otisaka u pesku
Sad mi reci da ova ljubav nikad neće umreti i ja ću se predati

Moja majka plače pod otvorenim nebom i ja se predajem
