Wait For Me (Čakaj me)

English translation

Wait For Me

My five minutes is today,
Without a tie and shoelaces.
And if you take my traces too,
I’ll be like a dancer without a partner.
 
My five minutes is today,
The guards are singing to their rifles.
When the sun lights up dawn to morning,
They will return songs to it.
 
I think only such thoughts
Which, of course, I shouldn’t dare.
And when I return I’ll be still
The one who begs you at the station:
Wait for me...
 
Today it seems to me
As if I can just stand on my toes
And the stars are there.
I’ll bring full pockets of them,
Does luck believe a knight?
 
Then I’ll be just a hero
For eternal hours we’re together,
A doormat, a shadow of your dog.
Then I’ll be a coat hanger, a potty,
Coffee in bed, a lover for both of us.

Čakaj me

Mojih pet minut je danes,
brez kravate in vezalk.
In če mi še stopinje vzameš,
bom kot plesalec brez plesalk.
 
Mojih pet minut je danes,
stražarji puškam pojejo.
Ko sonce jutru zarjo vname,
