Lyrics of Ljubav Je

Trebaće mi tvoje tijelo, kad oči zatvorim
Oko mene sve je bijelo, čak i sivi zidovi
Nemam kome da se vratim, samo tebi vjerujem
Dugove ću sve da platim, na ljubav se zaklinjem

Ljubav je začarani krug, svako dođe na svoj red, svako plati svoj dug
Ljubav je, sve što imamo, svako bira svoj grijeh, jedno drugom praštamo

Tako trebam tvoje tijelo, kad oči zatvorim
Srce se u tebe klelo, kako da ti oprostim
Nemam kome da se vratim, samo tebi vjerujem
Dugove ću sve da platim, na ljubav se zaklinjem

'mjesto kapetan da budem, bir'o sam da budem pirat
'mjesto sretan da budem, bir'o sam tugu u inat
Moja priča je rulet, ulažem, ne znam kasirat, njenim očima uklet, više se ne znam nasmijat
Zna me mamit' oblinama nakon čaše, dv'je vina, ona nije ta što će mi sutra roditi sina
Opet nijedna ne zna me tako magično dirat', opet tragično biram jer đavo ne da mi mira

Ljubav je začarani krug, svako dođe na svoj red, svako plati svoj dug
Ljubav je, sve što imamo, svako bira svoj grijeh, jedno drugom praštamo
Deen: I've been dying for your body, you make me feel alive
Everywhere I look you're shining, even when I close my eyes
Dalal: You're the one that I belong to, no one else could make me stay
I will right my every wrong so...
Deen&Dalal : our love will show us the way
Chorus:
Love is all...a vicious paradise, gives u everything, but you've gotta pay the price
Love is all... best thing we can get, even after all your sins, I'll forgive you and forget
Dalal: I am dying for your body, I just wanna feel alive
Even though you make my heart ache, still don't wanna say goodbye
Deen: You're the one that I belong to, no one else could make me stay
I will right my every wrong so...
Deen&Dalal: our love will show us the way
Jala: Instead of being a captain, I chose the life of a pirate
Instead of being a happy man, my soul feels like it's crying
life' is a game of roulette, a wheel that i'll be trapped inside in
Those eyes I'll never forget, and without them living is dying
And so she's dancing around me, when I've had a glass too many
But, damn, as soon as I'm sober I know we won't have a family
Only she knows how to give me what feels like heavenly magic
I hear the devil is laughing, I know the end will be tragic!
L'amour est......

J'aurais besoin de ton corps, en fermant les yeux
Tout est blanc autour de moi même les murs gris
Je n'ai personne pour y retourner, en croyant qu'en toi
Je règlerai toutes mes dettes, je le jure avec mon amour

L'amour est un cercle vicieux
Tout le monde fait le tour et chacun paye sa dette
L'amour est tout ce que nous avons, chacun choisit son péché en se pardonnant mutuellement

Oui, j'ai besoin de ton corps, en fermant les yeux
Mon cœur le jure, comment te pardonner
Je n'ai personne pour y retourner, en croyant qu'en toi
Je réglerai toutes mes dettes, je le jure avec mon amour

Au lieu d'être capitaine je suis un pirate
Au lieu d'être heureux, je suis triste par caprice

Ma vie est une roulette, je donne sans savoir encaisser, envouté dans ces yeux je ne sais même plus rigoler

Elle m'empoissonne avec ces formes après un deux verre de vin, elle n'est pas la femme qui me donnera un fils
Masi encore aucune n'a pas cette pouvoir magique de toucher. J'ai choisi la tragédie avec le diable en moi.

L'amour est un cercle vicieux
Tout le monde fait le tour et chacun paye sa dette
L'amour est tout ce que nous avons, chacun choisit son péché en se pardonnant mutuellement
