Lyrics: 

Balkan soul/Where I was born (needs music)

Where I was born… there is life and there is laughter,
all the wishes I sought after,
and happiness will never really cease…

Where I was born…people love each other,
and their mothers
teach them about love and peace…

Where I come from… hills are green and curvy,
some things may be topsy-turvy,
yet not to the degree that it would hurt…

Where I come from… some strange birds may whistle,
love´s abyssal,
and friendship´s not an empty word…

(Chorus)
Balkan soul…. Balkan soul…
do you know at all
about my Balkan soul?
This heart keeps beating,
every beat is painful, paying its own toll…
how could you think I could be cheating…
ever… ever… on my Balkan soul…?
on this crazy… on my crazy Balkan soul…?

Where I was born… they live and they speak bluntly…
to me, it seems like a country
out of a dream and of another time…

Where I was born… other kids are playing,
new cribs are swaying,
(and) others live the dreams of mine…

(Chorus)
Balkan soul…. Balkan soul…
do you know at all
about my Balkan soul?
This heart keeps beating,
every beat is painful, paying its own toll…
how could you think I could be cheating…
ever… ever… on my Balkan soul…?
on this crazy… on my crazy Balkan soul…?



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

It tells a story any listener or musician can project their own details into and make it their song.
