Lyrics of Crno I Belo

Vo ochi sega gledaj me Ne sum gubitnik ti znaj Ne se predavam do kraj Nema ragjanje bez pagjanje Otvori dusha priznaj mi Shto sme sega jas i ti Pola moe vo tebe A pola tvoe spie vo mene Ajde sega gushni me Do nebo digni me Crno i belo e se Edna vistina i edna laga Iako zaedno sme Jas biram srekja, ti birash taga Crno i belo e se Dobro i losho nishto ne gi deli Daj sega nasmevni se Denot ne vodi vo nokji beli Vo ochi sega gledaj me Tamu ti ke najdesh se Ajde predaj se do kraj Za novo ragjanje, so mene Otvori dusha priznaj mi Shto sme sega jas i ti Pola moe vo tebe Pola tvoe spie vo mene Ajde sega gushni me Do nebo digni me Crno i belo e se Edna vistina i edna laga Iako zaedno sme Jas biram srekja, ti birash taga Crno i belo e se Dobro i losho nishto ne gi deli Daj sega nasmevni se Denot ne vodi vo nokji beli Everything's black and white Only one truth, only one lie Sharing the same delight I choose to smile, you choose to cry Everything's black and white The good, the bad, equal, the same Day drowns in the night As you pool me, back in the game Everything's black and white.
