English translation

Love that has no end

Versions: #1#2
I would give you everything in the world
[I'd transfer] 10 years from my life [to yours]
I would steal the tears of the world
So that you wouldn't be in tears
I would guard you from evil
I would cry for you*
If heaven gave me two lives
I'd save them for you
Forever in good and bad [moments]
I will be there to care for you
Eternal love holds us together
Love that has no end
When [our] hair gets grey**
I will go with you, [you should] know
If heaven gave me two lives
It still wouldn't be enough time
To tell how much I love you
Because mine is the greatest love
Forever in good and bad [moments]
I will be there to care for you
Love that has no end
~ More like! :D ~

Clarification in footnotes:
'Lit' = 'literally'
'Or' = there is an alternate way to translate the line/phrase

Author's comments:

Some words in brackets to put them into context and not confuse people
* Or 'I would cry instead of you' - this line was difficult to phrase correctly as there were a lot of ways to do so
** Lit 'When grey shine hits us'
Much love xP

Hey, this is a very good translation!
I'd suggest only two changes:
- Croatian standard for "mjesto" in this case is "umjesto", which translates as "instead (of)", so "I would cry instead of you" would be more correct Regular smile
- in "ljubav vječno veže nas", vječno is an adverb, meaning "eternally, forever, ever after", so "love binds us eternally". In the case of "eternal love binds us/holds us together", we'd write/say: "ljubav vječna veže nas". The way we inflect words is probably hard and confusing for native English speakers, but you're doing a great job, keep it up! Regular smile
