Serbo-Croatian English

Strange and sudden came the storm that night
Night of terror, nineteen forty-two
Seemed those clouds would only bring us snow
Instead there came a war
Green soldiers at the door and fear

And so I was for all that night to dream of all the freedom
Where bells could ring and we could sing
And I could cry without a hand to cover my mouth

Back in nineteen forty-two, my generation
All we ever had to do was sleep and cry for milk
Back in nineteen forty-two, my generation
All we ever had to do was try to keep alive

Time has shoveled all those memories
Schoolfriends and the dreams we dreamed of then
Big ideas of how we’d reach success
Be famous, move the world
Be loved by pretty girls and old

Those days seem so far away
We’ve all made our own lives
As years go by, the more I try to find out where
Those friends live, work, sing, where are they now?

Friends of nineteen forty-two, my generation
Do they all have families and children of their own?
Friends of nineteen forty-two, my generation
They all have their grown-up dreams, that’s just how it should be
