Lyrics

It was still perfect world

Written By: Zeljko Bilandzic

Zeljko Bilandzic, 2005

It was still perfect world

It was still perfect world and
The eye could see far to the distant miracles
dreams
falling in love
and immense Time
floating by, slowly in twilight
Voice of father
and silent glory of mother
no big words
just is there
Holding hand
I will always remember
in my heart of hearts

In the Summer evening
noisy splendour
of life
Old couple sitting in a front yard
having coffee
in a shade of accacia tree
There is a girl going on a date
simply serene
beautifull
walking lightly
Passing by the tired lives
unnoticed
I know that today

My brother and I run
We are catching first fireflies
putting them in the matchbox
while buzzing in front of parents
through
milky shades of hills
above
Sarajevo
in sunset of a suburb
Light resting on the nishans
of turkish graveyard
Sky of huge
calm blue
We watch our city
down in a valley
going home
still happy
playfull
We arrive
Just on time
for evening news

I am grateful to You o Lord
You gave me that
for free
I too have lived

*

One of those days
nostalgia gripps me
I long for you
modest marendas
on the gravel of seaside beach
canned liver paste , tomato
from metal box with little handles
Made in hong kong
Pate was melting, warm
we kids watch swimmers , people
careless and feeling good
just stare in the glittering edge of sea
on the horizon
we rest absent
in a scent of orange peel
muted noise of crowd
in plugged ears
Before going again
after something
happily hidden from sorrows
that we'll know
when
Immense Time rolling in on us
Arrives
For awhile
we are kept safe
by these simple feasts
our mother prepared for us
with silent
love

I am grateful to You o Lord
In Your Glory
You gave me that
For free
I too have lived

Laying on the sun
serene
Childhood
stretched, smiling
I call
Somewhere
On the beach
of the Adriatic
sea
to lit up for awhile
dreaming glory
and restrain
these marauding
shades
Until The Day comes

In this world

In this world

Sometimes I feel
I am loosing the hope
In this world
where
beasts are glaring and dragons hissing
at the heart of my soul

Treachery preys in the ambush
Sometimes I feel
my soul can have no rest

It is dark and frightening
when sorrow overcomes
and
despair creeping in
And all the broken Hearts
weighing down
the shoulders
who would bear their silent gaze ?


Yet all of the sudden
I am overwhelmed
with splendor
like the rays of sun
Shining through the dark clouds
in a glory:
I believe
and I see
Hope

She embraces gently my soul
She is beautiful
Her smile makes
My heart want to burst in shouting of joy:
Blessed Are You o Lord
forever and ever
Blessed is Your Love
forever and ever
Blessed is Your Love!

Her name is Grace of God
and with Her
Faith
filling my heart
with heavenly fire
and Joy
I witness That
And my heart wants to burst in shouting of joy:
Blessed Are You o Lord
forever and ever ( refrain)
Blessed be Your Love
forever and ever
Blessed be Your Love!

My lips are sealed
I keep silent
For no words can utter Her beauty
And then I know:
She is not alone
With her is God 's Love
and whole world is lit up
in tears
I see everything in His Love
and I stagger swept away

I saw and I witness That
And my heart wants to burst in shouting of joy:
Blessed Are You o Lord
forever and ever
Blessed be Your Love
forever and ever
Blessed be Your Love!
