Marija Serifovic, the winner of Eurovision 2007, knows how to deal with secrets. Last November she revealed her darkest truths in a documentary and a book. She also promised to release an album that would clarify who she is and leave us breathless. So far, two songs have dropped: “Gorka hrabrost” and “Ja volim svoj greh”.

“Ja volim svoj greh”, which means “I Love My Sin” in English, premiered during the final of X Factor Adria last Sunday. Technical problems marred Marija’s performance, so she asked that all footage be removed from Youtube. What Marija wants Marija gets. Fortunately she was kind enough to share the official video with us.

The video features lots of smiling faces, French kisses, and Linus Svenning-inspired guys covered in tats. There is also a woman holding a snake while eating an apple, perhaps to appeal to all you fans of Genesis.

Fans around the Balkans have been asking, ‘Where’s the gay kiss?’ As you’ll recall, Marija, who you thought was a closeted lesbian, recently came out as bisexual.

In early January, she posted a sneak peek of “Gorka hrabrost”, the first song from her upcoming album, on Instagram. “Gorka hrabrost”, which means “Bitter Courage” in English, was written by Marina Tucakovic, the songwriter behind Milan Stankovic’s “Ovo je Balkan”, Moje 3’s “Ljubav je svuda”, and Zeljko Joksimovic’s “Nije ljubav stvar”.

Ja volim svoj greh lyrics

It just happens,
you don’t even fight with it.
And I don’t want to regret it
because I love you.
And I’m praying and I’ll pray
but I won’t for myself.

When I see you
my brakes stop working.
Because of you I would go across
my own and foreign borders.
And I’m praying and I’ll pray
but I won’t for myself.

I love my sin (it’s from God himself)
That sin loves me (that is what remains of me)
And may I be an eyesore to everything
Sin is my name
We are two different worlds (love’s the same, isn’t it?)
We are the same pain
And may I be an eyesore to everything
Sin is my name

In a world without mercy,
two souls find each other.
They then lift each other up from the dark
And I’m praying and I’ll pray
And I’ll pray and I’ll pray
but I won’t for myself.

I love my sin (it’s from God himself)
That sin loves me (that is what remains of me)
And may I be an eyesore to everything
Sin is my name
We are two different worlds (love’s the same, isn’t it?)
We are the same pain
And may I be an eyesore to everything
Sin is my name

When I’m somewhere far away
I return to myself
I can’t go far from my heart
I’m born to be myself

I love my sin (it’s from God himself)
… sin is my name

Honestly, a lot of people kind of knew that she was. I’m glad that she finally came out. She will be a great role model for the LGBT community.

The lyrics are quite good! I don’t get all the giggling in the clip, though 😛
As regards Marija S, it actually was coming out to say she likes men, too!!
