Vice Vukov - Zvona moga grada (English translation)

Croatian

Zvona moga grada

Zvonila su za oluje, zvonila su za vjenčanja
Zvonila su za živote i za zadnja putovanja
Kao neka vječna glazba, naše slave, našeg jada
Zvonila su od davnina, stara zvona moga grada
 
Boga su i ljude zvala za trabakul koji tone
Zvonila su, zvonila su za gromače i balkone
Skupljala su naše lađe kao ptice svoga gnijezda
Ko da srce majke kuca u zvoniku ispod zvijezda
 
Dok spavaju stare luke i treperi plavi svod
Zvonici su kao ruke koje prate bijeli brod
U kamenu nema neba, čovjek prođe težak put
Al su jednom kad ih trebam stara zvona opet tu
 
REF
Pričaju nam našu povijest brižno kao otac sinu
U večeri kao ova izlila su svu toplinu
Kao neka vječna glazba kolijevki, kolonada
Slušajte ih kako zvone stara zvona moga grada
 
U kamenu nema neba, čovjek prođe težak put
Al su jednom kad ih trebam stara zvona opet tu
 
Ref.

My Town's Bells

They rang at storms, rang at weddings
They rang for lives and for last journeys
Like some eternal music, of our glory, our misery
They rang since forever, the old bells in my town
 
Thay called upon God and the people for the sinking boat
They rang, they rang for the fields and balconies
Thay gathered our boats like birds from its nest
As if a mother's heart beats in the steeple beneath the stars
 
While the old harbours are asleep and the blue skies twinkle
The steeples are like hands following a white ship
There's no sky in stone, man passes a heavy path
But once I need them, the old bells are here again.
 
(Chorus)
They tell us our history carefully like a father to his son
On evenings like this one, they pour out all the warmth
Like some eternal music of cradles, of colonnades
Listen to them, the way they ring, my town's old bells
 
There's no sky in stone, man passes a heavy path
But once I need them, the old bells are here again.
 
(Chorus)
