Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

Oči deteta (Children's Eyes) (English translation)

Oči deteta (Children's Eyes)

[Stih 1]
U suzi dečije tuge sva su mora sveta
U uplašenom oku celo nebo stane
A u zrnu nade, u sredini cveta
Suncu šire ruke, oči deteta
U njima je pesma, k'o more duboka
O beskrajnom nebu, o suncu što greje
O svetu u kome je sve baš kako treba
Kad se dete voli, kad se dete smeje
 
[Pripev]
Očima deteta sve se vidi, sve se zna
I sva mora su u maloj suzi protkana
U očima deteta zrno nade proklija
Kao topla reč suncem hranjena
Oči deteta
 
[Stih 2]
Oči deteta svu lepotu sveta
Najlepšom čuvaju
U njima vile, vilenjaci, lutke i pajaci najlepše
Najlepše sijaju
I kad sunce igri prepusti dane
I k'o neku čigru zavrti naš svet
U ritmu svih planeta, neka bolje svane
Da radosne se bude oči deteta
 
[Pripev]
Očima deteta sve se vidi, sve se zna
I sva mora su u maloj suzi protkana
U očima deteta zrno nade proklija
Kao topla reč suncem hranjena
Oči deteta
 
Očima deteta sve se vidi, sve se zna
I sva mora su u maloj suzi protkana
U očima deteta zrno nade proklija
Kao topla reč suncem hranjena
Oči deteta

Eyes of a child

[verse1]
The entire sea is in the sad tears of a child
The entire sky stops in a frightened eye
There's a grain of hope in the middle of a flower
They spread their arms towards the sun, the eyes of a child
There is a song in them, deep as the sea
About a forever sky, about a warm sun
About a world where everything is okay
When a child is loved, when a child laughs
 
[Chorus]
You can see everything with the eyes of a child, they know everything
The entire sea is interwoven in a small tear
A grain of hope is growing in the eyes of a child
Like a warm word fed by the sun
The eyes of a child
 
[Chorus 2]
The eyes of a child are protecting this entire world
With the most beautiful
Fairies, elves, dolls and spiders
They sparkle the most beautifully
And when the sun sets
And our world spinning like a spinning top
In the rhythm of all the planets, may a better day come
For the child's eyes to wake up joyfully
 
[Chorus]
You can see everything with the eyes of a child, they know everything
The entire sea is interwoven in a small tear
A grain of hope is growing in the eyes of a child
Like a warm word fed by the sun
The eyes of a child
 
You can see everything with the eyes of a child, they know everything
The entire sea is interwoven in a small tear
A grain of hope is growing in the eyes of a child
Like a warm word fed by the sun
The eyes of a child

A bit hard to translate. The song is quite poetic.
