Lyrics

Čekaću te

Poslaću ti komad
Mora Jadranskoga
Otkinutog od zidina
Budvanskoga grada,
Al’ nikom ne reci
Jer dozna li Budva
Ljutiće se na me
Što joj kradem blaga.
 
Pričaću ti tajne
Toplog maestrala;
Kad nabora more
Tad priča nam i šapće,
Al’ samo sam ja
Taj što razume,
Jer ko sluša vetar
Tajne saznavaće.
 
Ukrasiću ova slova
Narandžinom bojom,
Plodom sa drveta
Iz dvorišta moga
Pa sesti i čekati
Tebe da me nađeš
Na pločniku starog
Grada budvanskoga.

I Will Wait for You

I’ll send you a piece
of the Adriatic sea,
torn from the walls of Old Budva;
but tell not a soul,
for if Budva should know,
she will rage at her stolen gold.

I will tell you secrets
of the warm Mistral,
who furrows the sea
and speaks in whispers,
but only to me, who understands,
who hears the wind, and knows.

I’ll stain the page
of your letters with orange,
fruit and promise
of the tree in my yard,
and sit and wait for you to find me
on the cobbled stairs of Old Budva.
