Lyrics of Inje

Palo inje po nama
Ledi krv u žilama
Pa ti srce steglo baš
Te brzo zaboravljaš

Drhti ljubav kao prut
U sred ljeta zamrznut,
Drhtim i ja, drhtim vas
Od kada mi nema nas

Džaba jorgan tijelo grije
Promaja kroz dušu bije

Bogu dane otimam
Gubim i kad dobijam,
Al’ kad niko ne vidi
Pustim srce da mu svratiš ti

Živim tek po navici
Kao rob u samici,
Al’ kad niko ne čuje
Pustim srce da se raduje

Ja i život, pas i mačka
Srce najskuplja mu igračka

Bogu dane otimam
Gubim i kad dobijam,
Al’ kad niko ne vidi
Pustim srce da mu svratiš ti

Živim tek po navici
Kao rob u samici,
Al’ kad niko ne čuje
Pustim srce da se raduje

Palo inje
Frost has formed between us
Blood in our veins freezes thus
Your heart is a dying ember
So you no longer remember

Love quivers like a tender leaf
Frozen in summer,defying belief,
I tremble too, all the way through
Since we were parted, me and you

In vain the quilt warms my bodywhole
A colddraught blows right through my soul

The days drag by as in a dream
Even when I win, I lose, it seems
But when no one is there to see
My heart will bid you visit me

I live my life by wornroutine
Like a slavealone, unseen
But when no oneis there to hear
My heart rejoices with a cheer

Me and life - like dog and cat
The heart the most treasured pet

The days drag by as in a dream
Even when I win, I lose, it seems
But when no one is there to see
My heart will bid you visit me

I live my life by worn routine
Like a slave alone, unseen
But when no one is there to hear
My heart rejoices with a cheer

Frost has formed
