The World’s Saddest Song

by haris on August 8, 2012

Ostavljen sam već odavno (Eng: ‘For a long time now I’ve been abandoned’)

Music and performance by Muhamed Mešanović – Hamić
Lyrics by Zaim Imamović
Translated from the original Bosnian to English by Haris Kriještorac

Bosnian:
Ostavljen sam već odavno
Bez ljubavi, bez sjaja
Život mi je mutna sjena
Jer mi drage više nema

Tužan mi je svaki časa
Tuga će me umoriti
Zanavjek će ukopana
Prva ljubav moja biti

Povuć’ ću se u samoću
Da mi utjehi mira nađe
Pa utjehe ako ne bi
Svoj ću život uzet sebi

English:
For a long time now I’ve been abandoned
Without love, without joy
My life is a hazy shadow
Since my beloved is no longer here

I live every hour in sadness
My grief will tire me out
For my first love
Will forever be buried

I will withdraw into solitude
So my sorrows can find peace
But if they don’t find it
I will take my own life
