Eurovision 2011 Serbia: Nina – Čaroban

Ciča zima i svud je prokleti led
baš sam imala težak dan
ljudi čudni su, niko ne zna za red
kući vučem se umorna

I dok kopam po tašni da pronađem ključ
već na ivici nerava
moje sunce, moj mesec i zvezdice sve
moj muškarac mi otvara
moj je čovek na vratima

I istog trena vredim kao hiljadu žena
jer njemu sam lepa i jaka ko stena
i kad me grli, znam da sve je u redu
čovek je čaroban

Sve moje mrakove u proleće boji
od kad me voli ja uspravno stojim
i njemu ja sam dobra, baš kakva jesam
čovek je čaroban

Zbogom tugo i zdravo osmehu moj
sreća s njim se doselila
tako topao, nežan i predivno svoj
samo meni on pripada

Dugo pričamo, moj je najbolji drug
s njim se smejem ko blesava
ljudi mi kažu nisu videli par
koji tako isijava
naša ljubav je zarazna

Sada znam da vredim kao hiljadu žena
jer njemu sam lepa i jaka ko stena
i kad me grli, znam da sve je u redu
čovek je čaroban

Sve moje mrakove u proleće boji
od kad me voli ja uspravno stojim
i njemu ja sam dobra, baš kakva jesam
čovek je čaroban

English Translation

Magical

Freezing cold and damn ice everywhere
I’ve really had a rough day
People are weird, nobody has manners
I’m dragging myself home, tired

And while I’m digging through my purse to find my key
losing my nerve already
My Sun, my Moon and all of my stars
my man opens the door
my man is at the door

And at the same moment I’m a thousand women worth
because, to him, I’m beautiful and strong as a rock
and when he holds me, I know everything is alright
the man is magical

All of my darknesses he transforms into spring
ever since he’s been loving me, I stand tall
and for him, I’m good, just the way I am
the man is magical

Goodbye sadness and hello my smile
happiness has moved in alongside with him
so warm, gentle and wonderfully himself
he belongs to me only

We have long talks, he’s my best friend
with him I laugh like crazy
people tell me they haven’t seen a couple
shining like that
our love is contagious

Now I know that I’m a thousand women worth
because, to him, I’m beautiful and strong as a rock
and when he holds me, I know everything is alright
the man is magical

All of my darknesses he transforms into spring
ever since he’s been loving me, I stand tall
and for him, I’m good, just the way I am
the man is magical

English Version

Magical

Here I go, walking home on a cold winter night
And my day was a such a mess
People tend to be strange, always picking a fight
Going crazy from all the stress

As I dig through my bag to get hold of the keys
Trying hard not to lose my nerve
But door opens and suddenly there he is
There’s the sunshine that fills my world
I know I’m such a lucky girl

All at once I feel as though the Spring’s on my doorstep
‘Cause he says I’m pretty, he won’t let me forget
And when I’m in his arms I know he’s a keeper
The man is magical

He takes my darkest thoughts and colours them yellow
With him I’m stronger, yet he makes me mellow
I know he loves me just the way that I am now
The man is magical

Goodbye sorrow, and hello sweetest delight
With him happiness just moved in
He’s so strong and so proud, he’s my saviour, my knight
Yet so gentle and sweet within

We’ll be talking all night like all best friends do
And he knows how to make me laugh
People keep saying that we’re two of a kind
And this sweet love is gonna last
Baby, we’re gonna have a blast

All at once I feel as though the Spring’s on my doorstep
‘Cause he says I’m pretty, he won’t let me forget
And when I’m in his arms I know he’s a keeper
The man is magical

He takes my darkest thoughts and colours them yellow
With him I’m stronger, yet he makes me mellow
I know he loves me just the way that I am now
The man is magical

Hey, hey…
And now I know…
(Feel as though the Spring’s on my doorstep)
(In his arms I know he’s a keeper)
The man is magical

He takes my darkest thoughts and colours them yellow
I am his woman, and he’s my strong fellow
I know he loves me just the way that I am now
The man is magical

The man is magical

  3. Inace pise se “da l'” 😉
    Dobra je nasa pesma, samo da se Nina oslobodi treme i odpeva kako zna u finalu.
    Od favorita Gruzija ubedljivo!

  4. Boze dal’ cete da raspravljate o malom i velikom slovu? O.o Hahaha e mi smo Srbi stvarno cudo prirode!Pesma je onako nije losa,pevljiva je dosta mada cini mi se da su ostale pesme bolje od nase al’ nema veze kakva je bila prosle i predprosle godine ova je super!!!

  5. Багзи, Сунце и Месец се пишу с великим словом када се мисли на саме планете, као и Земља. Ти си вероватно мислио на годишња доба, не на месеце у години. Годишња доба се обично пишу с малим словом, али ако им се придају људске особине, онда се могу писати с великим.

    Што се тиче песме, превод на енглески је сјајно одрађен, али ми се сама песма не свиђа.

  6. Pa otkad je Spring mesec? 😆
    A kad smo kod toga, mogla bih napisati velikim slovom ali samo u engleskoj verziji ali ne i u prevodu sa srpskog jer je tamo upotreba drugacija
