“Ljubav je” lyrics – Dalal & Deen feat. Anna Rucner and Jala (Bosnia & Herzegovina 2016)

Making their return to Eurovision, Bosnia and Herzegovina will be represented by Dalal Midhat-Talakic, Fuad “Deen” Backovic (who previously represented his country in 2004), cellist Ana Rucner and rapper Jasmin”Jala” Fazlic . The four will perform the song “Ljubav je” (Love Is) with lyrics in Bosnian.

“Ljubav je” is a passionate song, examining the drama of love. As the chorus kicks in, Dalal and Deen sing “Ljubav je zacarani krug/Svako dode na svoj red” (Love is an enchanted circle/Everyone takes their turn).

Jalal bursts in with a rap, bringing even more emotion.”Mjesto kapetana budem biro sam da budem pirat/Mjesto sretan da budem biro sam tugu u inat” (Instead of being a captain, I chose to be a pirate/Instead of being happy, I chose sadness in spite).

The song runs the gamut of emotions about love, the good and bad, happy and sad. While the song lyrics may be in Bosnian, the emotions Dalal & Deen singing of are universal.

“Ljubav je” lyrics

Trebace mi tvoje tijelo
Kad oci zatvorim
Oko mene sve je bijelo
Cak i sivi zidovi

Nemam kome da se vratim
Samo tebi vjerujem
Dugove cu sve da platim
Na ljubav se zaklinjem

Ljubav je zacarani krug
Svako dode na svoj red, svako plati svoj dug
Ljubav je, sve sto imamo
Svako bira svoj grijeh, jedno drugom prastamo

Tako trebam tvoje tijelo
Kad oci zatvorim
Srce se u tebe klelo
Kako da ti oprostim

Nemam kome da se vratim
Samo tebi vjerujem
Dugove cu sve da platim
Na ljubav se zaklinjem

‘mjesto kapetan da budem, bir’o sam da budem pirat
‘mjesto sretan da budem, bir’o sam tugu u inat
Moja prica je rulet, ulažem, ne znam kasirat, njenim ocima uklet, više se ne znam nasmijat
Zna me mamit’ oblinama nakon case, dv’je vina, ona nije ta sto ce mi sutra roditi sina
Opet nijedna ne zna me tako magicno dirat’, opet tragicno biram jer davo ne da mi mira

Ljubav je zacarani krug
Svako dode na svoj red, svako plati svoj dug
Ljubav je, sve sto imamo
Svako bira svoj grijeh, jedno drugom prastamo

English translation

I’ve been dying for your body
You make me feel alive
Everywhere I look you’re shining
Even when I close my eyes

You’re the one that I belong to
No one else could make me stay
I will right my every wrong so
Our love will show us the way

Love is all… a vicious paradise
Gives you everything, but you’ve gotta pay the price
Love is all… best thing we can get
Even after all your sins, I’ll forgive you and forget

I am dying for your body
I just wanna feel alive
Even though you make my heart ache
Still don’t wanna say goodbye

You’re the one that I belong to
No one else could make me stay
I will right my every wrong so
Our love will show us the way

Instead of being a captain, I chose the life of a pirate
Instead of being a happy man, my soul feels like its crying
Life is a game of roulette, a wheel that I’ll be trapped inside in
Those eyes I’ll never forget, and without them living is dying
And so she’s dancing around me, when I’ve had a glass too many
But, damn, as soon as I’m sober I know we won’t have a family
Only she knows how to give me what feels like heavenly magic
I hear the devil is laughing, I know the end will be tragic!

Love is all… a vicious paradise
Gives you everything, but you’ve gotta pay the price
Love is all… best thing we can get
Even after all your sins, I’ll forgive you and forget
