Kao daleki gost ciji dolazak ne slutis
ponekad cu ti dolaziti u san.
Ne ostavljaj me ti na putu -
ne zakljucavaj stan.

 

 

Uci cu tiho i sjesti polako,
moj pogled kroz mrak do tebe ce stici.
Kad gledajuc' te svoju zedj utolim tako,
cjelivat cu te i otici.

Sometimes I'll come when you're asleep,
An unexpected visitor.
Don't leave me outside in the street.
Don't bar the door!

 

      I'll enter quietly, softly sit.
      And gaze upon you in the dark.
      Then when my eyes have gazed their fill,
      I'll kiss you and depart.
