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.
Baby look into my eyes
Eyes don't know how to fake
I am fragile but won't break
This pain is sweet, a sweet defeat

Darling open up your soul
Let go of all control
You're the restles part of me
You're the dreamer in my sea

I'm being born again
In your every breath

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

Baby look into my eyes
I'm weareing no disguise
I'm naked, wild and free
Now it's time, step into me

Darling open up your soul
Let go of all control
You're the restless part of me
You're the dreamer in my sea

I'm being born again
With your every breath ...
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.
Regarde-moi dans mes yeux
Je ne suis pas une lâche
Je reste forte jusqu’à la fin
Il n'y a pas de naissance sans mort

Ouvre ton âme et admet-moi
Que-ce que nous sommes maintenant
Une partie de moi est en toi
Une partie de toi reste en moi

Embrasse-moi très fort
Et lève-moi jusqu’au ciel

Tout est noir et blanc
Une vérité et un mensonge
Même si nous sommes ensemble
Je choisis le bonheur, tu choisis la douleur

Tout est noir et blanc
Ni le mal, ni le bien ne les sépare
Souris-moi
Le jour nous mène vers des nuits blanches

Regarde-moi dans mes yeux
Tu vas y trouver tout
Laisse tout maintenant
Pour une nouvelle naissance, avec moi

Ouvre ton âme et admet-moi
Que-ce que nous sommes maintenant
Une partie de moi est en toi
Une partie de toi reste en moi

Embrasse-moi très fort
Et lève-moi jusqu’au ciel

Tout est noir et blanc ...
