Eurovision / Melodifestivalen Moment #3 : Molitva

Continuing my “Eurovision Countdown” and highlighting another wonderful song and performance. And highlighting something which I wish there was more of in modern Eurovision: songs in languages other than English. This song is awesome, and was easily my favourite from 2007. Marija Šerifović from Serbia. There’s an English language version, too, but in my opinion, it lacks the passion of this.

Lyrics
Ni oka da sklopim,
Postelja prazna tera san,
A ?ivot se topi
I nestaje brzo, k’o dlanom o dlan.
K’o razum da gubim,
Jer stvarnost I ne primećujem,
Jo? uvek te ljubim,
Jo? uvek ti slepo verujem.
K’o luda, ne znam kuda,
Ljubavi se nove bojim,
A dane, ?ive rane,
Vi?e ne brojim.
Molitva, kao ?ar na mojim usnama je,
Molitva, mesto reči samo ime tvoje.
(I) Nebo zna, kao ja,
Koliko puta sam ponovila,
To nebo zna, ba? kao ja,
Da je ime tvoje moja jedina
Molitva.
Al Bogu ne mogu
Lagati sve dok se molim,
A la?em ako ka?em
Da te ne volim
