More songs

I've just come across one of my favourite songs by complete accident.

I used to hear it from time to time on the radio when I was in Yug, and it's been a symbol of love to me in a way, because the man I was with at the time used to sing it to me sometimes, and call me The Beloved Wanderer.

It was sweet. And finding the song made me very happy, so here are the lyrics

Volim mjesec iznad grada I love the moon above the city
U noci se ceste gube The roads get lost in the darkness
Pod prozorom lisce susti The leaves rustle underneath the window
Dok me tvoje ruke ljube While your arms embrace me

Sve je tako njezno ljepo Everything is so gentle and lovely
Blagi dani bistre zore Mild days and clear dawnings
Ti me diras, ti me ljubis You touch me and you kiss me
Dok ja sanjam kolodvore WHile I dream of highways

Jer ja sam skitnica Because I am a wanderer/nomad
Ne drzi me mjesto Places don't hold me
Ja sam skitnica Because I am a wanderer
Bjezi mi se cesto I want to run away often
Jer ja sam skitnica Because I am a wanderer
Daljine me vuku THe faraway places pull at me
Vise volim vjetar And I prefer the wind
Nego mirnu luku To the calm bay

Dok me drzis dok me ljubis While you hold me, while you kiss me
Gledam krosnju preko puta I watch the trees across the way
Sve je zbilja lepo toplo Everything is truly so lovely
Ljubav puna osecanja A love full of emotions
Ti i u meni trazis luku You seek in me a port
dok ja sanjam putovanja While I dream of travels

Jer ja sam skitnica Because I am a wanderer
Ne drzi me mjesto Places don't hold me
Ja sam skitnica Because I am a wanderer
Bjezi mi se cesto I want to run away often
Jer ja sam skitnica Because I am a wanderer
Daljine me vuku THe faraway places pull at me
Vise volim vjetar And I prefer the wind
Nego mirnu luku To the calm bay

Those are very fine lyrics indeed - in both languages!

The downside is that now I can start trying to construct phrases like "ljubim rakune". Moo hoo ha ha.

I want to borrow "vise volim vjetar" for my signature :o). I'm probably not pronouncing it right, but I like it-in both languages.

Musemuggers anthology for our anniversary
http://www.livejournal.com/community/musemuggers/198381.html

Have you considered submitting anything to it? I do love The Prince of Glass and Sky, and The Magician's Wife, but perhaps you want to send those out.

Aargh! It's difficult for me to choose one of mine as it has to be good enough to not disgrace me in an anthology but not good enough to inspire me to send it out. Gah. All of your stuff is pretty publishable though, so I'd understand if you don't want to submit. But I don't think the anthology would be complete without you :)

Re: Musemuggers anthology for our anniversary
cheers for the link :)
WIll think about it and see what I can come up with

And you've got a lot of good work, but I really liked the first piece you did for Musemuggers :)
