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
