Sami Dva

Na srdci jizva
Na dlani srdce
Na čele dlaň
Na stole čelo
 
Na líto pozdě
Na duši líto
Na kole duše
Oba bolí to
 
Na dosah nebe
Do nebe na dosah
A smutek v něm
Je tenhle den
Její, jeho
A síla v ní
Jde dílem z ní
A dílem z něho
Na útěku
Na konci
Na krku
Na sklonku všeho
 
Na oku sůl
Na noze oko
Na kole noha
Nízko, vysoko
 
Na líto pozdě
Na duši líto
Na kousky duše
Oba bolí to
 
Na dosah nebe
Do nebe na dosah
A smutek v něm
Je tenhle den
Její, jeho
A síla v ní
Jde dílem z ní
A dílem z něho
Na útěku
Na konci
Na krku
Na sklonku všeho
 
Stále spolu
Přitom tak sami
Stále spolu
Přitom tak sami

English translation

Just we two

A scar in a heart
A heart on a palm
A palm on a forehead
A forehead on a table
 
Too late to regret
A regret in an inner man
An inner tube of a wheel*
It hurts them both
 
Within reach of the heavens
A heaven within reach
And a grief within
This day is
hers, his.
And her strength
springs partly from her,
partly from him.
On the run
At the end
On the neck
At the end of all things.
 
Salt in an eye,
a corn on a foot,**
a foot on a bike,
low, high.
 
Too late to regret
A regret in a soul
A soul in pieces,
it hurts them both.
 
Within reach of the heavens
A heaven within reach
And a grief within
This day is
hers, his.
And her strength
springs partly from her,
partly from him.
On the run
At the end
On the neck
At the end of all things.
 
Always together,
still so alone,
Always together,
still so alone.
