  • Translations: Croatian, English, French


In her place along the river
Suzanne wanted you beside her
and now you hear the boats go by
now you can sleep beside her
Yes, you know she's crazy
but for this you are with her
And she offers you tea and oranges
which she brought from China
and when you are going to tell her
that you have nothing to give her
She's already on your wave
and makes the river answer
that you are always lovers.
And you want to travel with her
and you want to travel with her blind
And you know that you have touched her body
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind
And Jesus was a sailor
until he walked upon the water
And he remained a long time
watching alone
from his wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
only drowning men
could see him He said
"You will be sailors then until the sea will free you"
But he himself was broken,
but more human and abandoned
he did not sink into our mind
And you want to travel with him,
and you want to travel with blind
And maybe you'll trust him
Because he's touched your body with his mind
Now, Suzanne takes your hand
and she leads you to the river
She's wearing rags and feathers
taken in some dorm
And the sun pours down like honey
on the lady of the harbor
And she shows you the colours
in the garbage and the flowers
You find heroes in the rotten seaweed,
and children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
and they will do that forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her,
and you want to travel with her blind
Because you know that she's touched your body
her perfect body with her mind
