Lyrics
Without a fight (Bez boyu / )

How could I, how could I fail to stop in time, it's all clear now with me, now and forever, Dont go at night, dont leave me. I'll pour some wine for me, Ill pour some wine for you, and if you want, with honey.

Chorus: Who are you? You took my life and didnt give it back. Who are you? You drank my blood and fell down drunk. Your eyes call me, want me, make me follow. Who are you? Whoever you are, I won't give up without a fight! I won't give up without a fight!

How could I, how could I fail to stop me, stop youtoday. Today its so windy, without you Im lonesome, Im lonesome without you, Put something on. I'll pour some wine for me, Ill pour some wine for you, and if you want, with honey.

Chorus: Who are you? You took my life and didnt give it back. Who are you? You drank my blood and fell down drunk. Your eyes call me, want me, make me follow. Who are you? Whoever you are, I won't give up without a fight! I won't give up without a fight!

(whistling)

I'll pour some wine for me, Ill pour some wine for you, and if you want, with honey.

Chorus: Who are you? You took my life and didnt give it back. Who are you? You drank my blood and fell down drunk. Your eyes call me, want me, make me follow. Who are you? Whoever you are, I won't give up without a fight! I won't give up without a fight! I won't give up without a fight!

Flower (Kvitka / )

Cold, hungry and untimely, Now bright, then dark vague, Till blood, till pain, till night, I know, I will be, I want, I want!

Chorus: Look for my traces on the phone, Kiss my lips through the window, As a mark on my shoulder, you're a flower, youre a flower! Look for my traces on the phone, Kiss my lips through the window, So quickly in my life, so quickly! You're a flower!

We said goodbye again and again, We were flying round and round, Without pain, without the right to hope So quickly, so strongly and so little

Chorus: Look for my traces on the phone, Kiss my lips through the window, As a mark on my shoulder, you're a flower, youre a flower! Look for my traces on the phone, Kiss my lips through the window, So quickly in my life, so quickly! You're a flower!

I so want to (Ya tak hochu do tebe/ )

Im so thrilled with you, As no one else has ever been thrilled with, Im looking at you so That I dont need to say words A-a-a-a-a-a-ya-ya-ya. I miss you like a caged bird misses freedom And Im waiting, and I dont know whether there is a truth in your eyes. A-a-a-a-a-a-ya-ya-ya.

Chorus: I so want to you Like a baby to a mother, I so want to you, Like the land to the sky. All the wishes in the world, All that I have, I will give for saying your name every morning. I so want to you

How could anybody want so that waiting for a sign all night long, while the candle burns, until sweetheart says yes? A-a-a-a-a-a-ya-ya-ya. Im so thrilled with you, As no one else has ever been thrilled with, Im looking at you so That I dont need to say words A-a-a-a-a-a-ya-ya-ya.

Chorus: I so want to you Like a baby to a mother, I so want to you, Like the land to the sky. All the wishes in the world, All that I have, I will give for saying your name every morning. I so want to you

Let me go (Vidpusty / ³)

I would think that you are a bright day without rain, But there are tears on your face, And I would say to you: You are not mine, not mine, But you won't let me go.

I would think that you a silent night without stars, But your bright eyes shine so much. And I would say to you: You're just a dream, just a dream, But you won't let me go.

Chorus: Let me go, I beg you to let me go, Because I can't go on anymore, Let me go, I beg you, let me go, I don't want to go on further.

I would think that you are a spring petal, But you will never wither, And I would say to you: You are mine, not mine. La-la-la-la-la-la

Chorus: Let me go, I beg you to let me go, Because I can't go on anymore, Let me go, I beg you, let me go, I don't want to go on further.

Friend (Druh / )

If once you would tell me to become your boat, If once, I would take you and we would sail free If once you would tell me to become a shadow in the night, If once you would tell me, I wouldn't sleep I would follow you, I would live in a secret

Chorus: Just know it, I will always be your friend! Let it be so! Just know it, I will always be your friend

If once you would tell me to become your boat, If once, I would take you and we would sail free If once you would tell me to become a shadow in the night, If then you would tell me, I wouldn't sleep I would follow you, I would live in a secret!

Chorus: Just know it, I will always be your friend! Let it be so! Just know it, I will always be your friend! Let it be so!

If once you would let me become your wine If once you would let me become your body If just for once you would tell me to become your wine! If you would let me I would flush your soul and make drunk with me!

Chorus: Just know it, I will always be your friend! Let it be so! Just know it, I will always be your friend

Just know it, I want you even for a moment Let it be so
