POETRY

These lyrics and stand-alone poems alike, stand like beacons shining a light over the landscape of years I lived through. Written constantly, in every opportunity, for all the reasons – or none at all, some turned into musical albums, others just remained lines on paper. They all meant something at the time, and will maybe mean something to someone again.

Lyrics for music album “Versus” (2019) | LINK

Century Ago

Like a century ago
Like a million miles from home
Like the world has gone insane
Every move feels like a fall
I call on you in darkest days
Voice of reason in the wild
You always knew when things were wrong
I’m lost in a fog without your smile

Oh oh oh
Will you miss me when I’m gone
Will you remember how it was
if our lives were worth it

Time goes on in circles
This world repeats itself a lot
Heavens move and seasons change
Years are infinitely locked
Lonely nights still bring the tide
Nothing real is eternal
Moon above still shines the light
Leading me on forever

Oh oh oh
Will you miss me when I’m gone
Will you remember how it was
if our lives were worth it
The Bouncer

What
Did
You
Say
To the bouncer
To bounce you
Bang
Bang
On your pretty head
Oh boy

Gotta run now
Gotta hide now
It’s a chase
You feel the heat
Gotta run now
Gotta hide now
It’s a chase
You feel the heat
You were stupid
And you’re now on the run
This can easily happen
To anyone
You were stupid
And you’re now on the run
This can easily happen
To anyone

Cash only
To avoid a fall You gotta have it
Or you lose it all
Cash only
To avoid a fall
You gotta have it
Or you lose it all
Get smart
Move outta here
The only way to go
Is a higher gear
Get smart
Move outta here
The only way to go
Is a higher gear 
Different Constellations

Go
And don’t look back
There’s something for you out there
We are the only ones that know
Where you’ve been so why the stare

Sorry
But not this time There’s no way I’ll come around
I feel much better
without you here
I was lost but now I’m found

I’m free
From this relation
Feels like an overdue vacation
There’s no pain now in my soul
I have taken back control

Go
And leave me be
I don’t care for your explanation
In silence I realize
the power of indignation

Walls
All around
I’ve built on our confrontation
You and me are too much alike
but different constellation

I’m free
From this relation
Feels like an overdue vacation
There’s no pain now in my soul
I have taken back control
Sunshine

Hey, whatcha’ doin here
Never seen your face before
You ain’t from our country
no one sleeps here anymore
Say, come into the light
Come a little closer
I can see my time has come
Hope you’re ready for your answer

It’s a beautiful day
Way you look at life
It’s a celebration
Sunshine in the sky
We’re surfin’ these waves
Oceans of forever
When there ain’t no tomorrow
There’s no way to heaven

Look around
We live inside a hole
Out there is a desert
‘Round us iron walls
It’s a man who’s done those things
men have lost this war
On a road to kingdom come
time to pay the toll

It’s a beautiful day
Way you look at life
It’s a celebration
Sunshine in the sky
We’re surfin’ these waves
Oceans of forever
When there ain’t no tomorrow
There’s no way to heaven 
Sunshine

Hey, whatcha’ doin here
Never seen your face before
You ain’t from our country
no one sleeps here anymore
Say, come into the light
Come a little closer
I can see my time has come
Hope you’re ready for your answer 

It’s a beautiful day
Way you look at life
It’s a celebration
Sunshine in the sky
We’re surfin’ these waves
Oceans of forever
When there ain’t no tomorrow
There’s no way to heaven

Look around
We live inside a hole
Out there is a desert
‘Round us iron walls
It’s a man who’s done those things
men have lost this war
On a road to kingdom come
time to pay the toll

It’s a beautiful day
Way you look at life
It’s a celebration
Sunshine in the sky
We’re surfin’ these waves
Oceans of forever
When there ain’t no tomorrow
There’s no way to heaven
The Boatman 

Here’s a nickel for your effort
Here’s a dime for the tears
Here’s a quarter for a song
That got you through those lonely years
It’s a real situation
Tonight I’m in one of my moods
Just keep ‘em coming till the
bar runs dry I’m singin’ my last blues

Once in a lifetime there’s a chance
you shouldn’t pass
Once in a lifetime there’s a way
to be your best
Once in a lifetime you smell the laurels
at your door
As you reach for plenty
You may come out empty

So here’s a nickel for your silence
Here’s a dime for my soul
Here’s my quarter for the ride
We take to reach the golden shore
Just keep rowing that boat
Across this river of my fall
Takes some guts to be the guide
That holds your hand to nevermore

Once in a lifetime there’s a chance
you shouldn’t pass
Once in a lifetime there’s a way
to be your best
Once in a lifetime you smell the laurels
at your door
As you reach for plenty
You may come out empty 
Flashback

Another day in our story
Feeling your flesh next to mine
It’s so immaculate
So irresistible
Such a perfect sign

Am I awake or still asleep
I ask myself when I open my eyes
The feeling’s there On empty sheets
You’re just a halo of
Flashback
To an impossible dream
Flashback
I am a leaf in the wind
Flashback
I see an endless horizon
Calling me home

To you I give all the glory
You won the war and saved your soul
You’ve taken all I had in me
And I lost control
All that is left is a an empty shell
A bottle helps but it’s never enough
It’s silent here
The sound of night
That sends a calling to the

Flashback
To an impossible dream
Flashback
I am a leaf in the wind
Flashback
I see an endless horizon
Calling me home
Say What 

You pushed me away
made me feel so useless
You mess with my soul
and then you want forgiveness
Enough is enough
I’m now back on track
This door is locked
- I don’t want you back

Every word you said was a clever lie
But I am not the kind that will mope and cry
Pack your life now and get outta here
Our story’s done this coast is clear
 
Hey say what you wanna say
And just leave - get the fuck away
Why you lookin’ at me like that
Don’t play like you don’t understand
 
I figured it out not a moment too late
This is hard for me as I feel no hate
I was so sure that you were the one
But there’s no regrets what’s done is done
 
Every word you said was a clever lie
But I am not the kind that will mope and cry
Pack your life now and get outta here
Our story’s done this coast is clear
 
It’s all
I have
To say
In this moment
In time
We may find
A way
To be friends again
It’s all
you did
That caused
me all this pain
Where I’ve been
with you
[pause]
I’ll never go back there again
 
Hey say what you wanna say
And just leave - get the fuck away
Why you lookin’ at me like that
Don’t play like you don’t understand 
Budi Čovek

I gde sam sad
U nekoj tuđoj zemlji
Gde su dobri ljudi
Veruju u sutra
Život piše reči
Koje slušaš u sebi
Svako srce je hram
Koji pripada tebi

Ostani zauvek svoj
Ostani zauvek siguran
Jer si samo čovek
Sam u ovom gradu
I kad nekad dođu
Neka teška vremena
Ti si uvek kraj mene
Zajedno plovimo snovima

I na kraju puta
Kad se jednoga dana
Probudiš sam
Bez žive duše pored sebe
Kad se setiš trena
Kad si hodao pod suncem
Kad si video sutra
Tog sudbonosnog jutra

Ostani zauvek svoj
Ostani zauvek siguran
Jer si samo čovek
Sam u ovom gradu
I kad nekad dođu
Neka teška vremena
Ti si uvek kraj mene
Zajedno plovimo snovima
The Chosen 

Time is right
There’s lot of confusion
We live an illusion
This life is a rollercoaster ride
With too many people
Hiding their feelings
Let’s just take off and fly outside
Out on the highway
Life is still simple
C’mon and board now on this ride
All aboard
We are the chosen
We are the owners of our lives
 
Look at our brothers
They’re so fly
As they ride across the sky
Look at our sisters
They’re so fly
As they rock us all tonite
Look at our brothers
They’re so fly
As they ride across the sky
Look at our sisters
They’re so fly
As they rock us all tonite
 
Feeling fine
When we are together
Just like a fusion
You got a soul that can’t be bound
I am the moonlight
You are my sunshine
You are a tone in every sound
Out on the highway
Life is still simple
C’mon and board now on this ride
All aboard
We are the chosen
We are the owners of our lives 
Solid Hours 

Looking for a place to hide
Somewhere I belong
I feel emptiness inside
I’m lost without your love
There’s no place for you and me
In the morning light
I remember as I ride
Deep into the night
 
I’m workin’ now solid hours
Workin’ now solid hours
I’m workin’ now solid hours
Workin’ out tryna find the love we lost 
Together Alone 

Over the line of redemption
It’s a brand new situation
I’ve been thinking a lot
About the weight of your affection
Was it something I’ve done
That made you the way you are
How did all of this came to be
Every day I wonder
 
We still call it so
But this place is no longer a home
I’ve been meaning to tell ya
I feel we’re together alone
 
We’re over the garden wall
What a magical place to be
From the wild I hear a call
Like a voice is naming me
What a wonderful thing
To clear your heart of sorrow
Love’s a word with elusive ring
When you’re leaving tomorrow
 
We still call it so
But this place is no longer a home
I’ve been meaning to tell you
I feel we’re together alone 
Bright

Sun is shining mighty bright
Gotta move now into the shade
Let’s go on a beautiful ride
It’s a lifetime or a fade
 
Please move out of way
While we’re spinning don’t get cut on the blade
There’s a whole lotta game to play
Our direction is a wrong way
 
Dive into the light
Baby you got the moves
Let’s do a careless night
Don’t try to make this right
 
Gimme all you got
And let nothing get in our way
We are born to be, born to be
Born to be this way
 
We’re moving now faster then light
Riding on an infinite wave
Feeling this incredible might
C’mon baby now u gotta be brave
 
Please move out of way
While we’re spinning don’t get cut on the blade
There’s a whole lotta game to play
Our direction is a wrong way 
Sailing Away

Leaves fell of a golden tree
One for you and one for me
Hold out your hand don’t let it fall my lover

I can’t tell if rain or snow
Human life’s a seed you sow
I’ll give you my soul give you my all my lover

Chase me in the pouring rain
Like a child be young again
If nothing is given nothing is gained my lover

Sun is setting above the sea
Will your heart remember me
I’m sailing away sailing away forever
Call My Name (Bonus track) 
 
Stop
Pay attention
To the infinite void
Darkness in your
Soul
Your indiscretion
Has caused our fall
has brought this all
 
Song of the night sky
Song of the stars that shine above
There’s only a ilence in this night
The song of moonlight shining bright
 
I’m breaking down
I’m lashing out
I call and shout your name in shame
You burned my soul
I’ll keep my pride
When I am gone you’ll scream my name
 
Words
Don’t mean nothing
There’s no way back
The bridge is gone my
Love
Is for another
Its history time
I’ll never fall again
 
Song of the night sky
Song of the stars that shine above
There’s only silence in this night
The song of moonlight shining bright
 
I’m breaking down
I’m lashing out
I call and shout your name in shame
You burned my soul
I’ll keep my pride
When I am gone you’ll scream my name 

Crni Steg
 
Naći ćeš me na najvišoj lipi,
k'o crni steg na vetru vijorim,
Kako visim na koncu sudbine,
izgubljen, i dalje se borim...
 
Zagledanog gde gledat' se ne sme,
pozornog za svitanja hladna,
ti si tu, hodaš pokraj mene,
sami smo, dušo moja tamna...
 
Divlji cvete veni u zaborav,
nek vreme gori i stihove ove,
al' jedan stub će uvek ostat prav,
mračni spomen za propale snove...
 
Moreplovac izgubljen u magli,
sneg i kiše što pale su lani,
zvezda koja još život joj slavi,
setite je kad su teški dani...
 
Kraj je puta, obraz tamu grli,
čisto srce okov suza steze,
bistra noć rađa jutra mračna,
i dah smrti do duše mi seže...
 
Osećam te, dok sve teže dišem,
tugo moja, svoj poljubac daj mi,
tvojoj senci nezaborav pišem,
da me seti kad su teški dani. 
Veliki Grad
 
Ćuti noć
uz zvuk promaje,
sklopi oči i slušaj
neko nekom dušu jeftino daje...
 
Prvi dah jutarnjeg vetra
novom danu se veseli,
šumi žamor ljudi,
i tu si ti, na gomili... 
Ulice

Pogledaj te ulice,
ovaj vazduh je tako težak,
kroz slomljen prozor čuješ tišinu posle pobede.

Plačes u uglu sobe,
ovaj grad je tako težak,
kroz snove stižu zvuci -

Traže te - potere - zamke nase sudbine,
Čuješ traže te... Sve je prašina...
 
I gde je kraj?
Ovaj život je tako težak,
šištis kroz zube neku dobru reč za nevolje...

Hodaš bez sna,
svi ti brodovi u magli stoje,
i ploviš dalje iako -
 
Traže te - potere - zamke naše sudbine,
Čuješ traže te... Sve je prašina...
 
Sanjaš budan
spavaš budan
sanjaš budan
spavaš budan

Lonely Night

Not so alone, oh baby
Feel like a thousand miles away
Of that I've had
Feel like my blood has long time bled
Found now my soul with you
Found all the places I have had
Locked in my mind
One place - a million worlds to find

Rest your soul and rest your mind
I had a million years to find
one like you so unlike me
I was blind but now I see

Its a moonlit night tonight
Its another day there after
Two souls are one tonight
come and feel my love forever

Can't sleep tonight
Lights out the stars are shining bright
Can't live tonight
Those eyes are watching from behind
Whole again
Lost again
Starts again
Wrong again

Rest your soul and rest your mind
I had a million years to find
one like you so unlike me
I was blind but now I see

Its a moonlit night tonight
Its another day there after
Two souls are one tonight
come and feel my love forever

Stumble and fall
once more for all who couldn't see
The pleasure's yours, oh baby
cause you can do it naturally
Don't hide again
Jezero (The Lake)

Ustajem
Pokrivam te
Ka izlazu šunjam se
Svaki put
Kad sretnemo se
Uvek isto nam desi se
Naša ljubav
Je kosmička reč
Nikad ne prolazi
Tvoje oči
Kad gledaju me
Sutra ne dolazi

Zauvek tu si
U mojoj duši
I što te više sad hoću
To se više sve ruši
Možda nije u redu
Možda srce me laže
Al kad je dovoljan pogled
Nema šta da se kaže

Ti si plamen u magli
Koji vodi me
Ti si galeb iz snova
Koji prati me
Tvoje oči su večnost
Što ne prolazi
Bar još jednom da čujem
Kako dolazi

... naša noć

Bilo jednom
Nekada
Gore na jezeru
Prvi put
Kad video sam
Tebe u beskraju
Nema reči
Što mogu da
Opišu sećanja
Kud god krenem
I gde god da sam
Svud je previše tragova

Zauvek tu si
U mojoj duši
I što te više sad hoću
To se više sve ruši
Možda nije u redu
Možda srce me laže
Al kad je dovoljan pogled
Nema šta da se kaže

Ti si plamen u magli
Koji vodi me
Ti si galeb iz snova
Koji prati me
Tvoje oči su večnost
Što ne prolazi
Bar još jednom da čujem
Kako dolazi

... naša noć
