Belle & Sebastian – Get Me Away from Here, I’m Dying

Ooh! Get me away from here I’m dying
Play me a song to set me free
Nobody writes them like they used to
So it may as well be me
Here on my own now after hours
Here on my own now on a bus
Think of it this way
You could either be successful or be us
With our winning smiles, and us
With our catchy tunes, and us
Now we’re photogenic
You know, we don’t stand a chance

Oh, I’ll settle down with some old story
About a boy who’s just like me
Thought there was love in everything and everyone
You’re so naive!
After a while they always get it
They always reach a sorry end
Still it was worth it as I turned the pages solemnly, and then
With a winning smile, the boy
With naivety succeeds
At the final moment, I cried
I always cry at endings

Oh, that wasn’t what I meant to say at all
From where I’m sitting, rain
Washing against the lonely tenement
Has set my mind to wander
Into the windows of my lovers
They never know unless I write
“This is no declaration, I just thought I’d let you know goodbye”
Said the hero in the story
“It is mightier than swords
I could kill you sure
But I could only make you cry with these words”

Prevod pesme

Vodi me odavde, umirem

Ooh! Vodi me odavde, umirem
Odsviraj mi pesmu da me oslobodiš
Više ih niko ne piše kao nekad
Pa što ne bih ja
Ovde sam sam, par sati kasnije
Ovde sam sam, sada u busu
Gledaj na to ovako
Možeš biti ili uspešan ili biti mi
Sa tim našim pobedničkim osmesima, i mi
Sa našim pevljivim pesmama, i mi
Mi smo fotogenični
Znaš, šanse nemamo

Oh, skrasiću se uz neku staru priču
O dečaku koji je baš kao ja
Mislio si da ima ljubavi u svemu i svima
Tako si naivan!
Nakon nekog vremena, uvek shvate
Uvek stignu do gorkog kraja
Pa ipak, vredelo je dok sam svečano okretao stranice, a onda
Sa pobedničkim osmehom, taj dečak
Naivno uspeva
Na kraju sam plakao
Ja uvek plačem na kraju

Oh, to uopšte nije ono što sam hteo da kažem
S mesta na kojem sedim, zbog kiše
koja pljušti po usamljenoj oronuloj zgradi
moje misli su odlutale
do prozora mojih ljubavnica
One nikad ne znaju ako im ne napišem
“Ovo nije zvanična izjava, samo sam pomislio da treba da ti kažem zbogom”
Reče heroj u toj priči
“Moćnija je od mačeva
Mogao bih te ubiti, svakako
Ali samo ovim rečima bih te mogao rasplakati”
