U2 – Stay (Faraway, So Close!)

Stay (Faraway, So Close!)

Green light, 7-eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don’t smoke, don’t even want to
I see you check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning but you’re upside down
You say when he hits you, you don’t mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Is that what it is?

Red lights, grey morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who’s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch to the talk shows

And if you look, you look through me
And if you talk it’s not to me
And when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing

If I could stay… then the night would give you up
Stay, and the day would keep its trust
Stay, and the night would be enough

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio
With satellite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin

And if you listen I can’t call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout I’ll only hear you

If I could stay… then the night would give you up
Stay then the day would keep it’s trust
Stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough

Three o’clock in the morning
It’s quiet and there’s no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground

Prevod na srpski

Ostati (Daleko, tako blizu!)

Zeleno svjetlo, prodavnica
Ti svraćaš po kutiju cigareta
Ti ne pušiš, čak i nemaš želju
Vidim kako provjeravaš kusur
Ubistveno sređena
Točkovi se okreću ali ti si sva naopako
Kažeš, kad te udari, tebi ne smeta
Zato što kad te povrijedi, ti se osjećaš živom
Jel tako?

Crvena svjetla, sivo jutro
Ti se iskotrljaš iz rupe u zemlji
Vampir ili žrtva
Zavisi od toga ko je u blizini
Nekad si ostajala kući da bi gledala reklame
Znala si napamet talk-show emisije

I ako gledaš, gledaš kroz mene
I ako pričaš, ne pričaš meni
A kad te ja dodirnem, ti ne osjećaš ništa

Kad bih mogao ostati… noć bi te se tad odrekla
Ostati, i taj dan bi sačuvao svoj smisao
Ostati, i ta noć bi bila dovoljna

Daleko, tako blizu
Gore uz atmosferske smetnje i radio
Uz satelitski program
Možeš ići bilo gdje
Majami, Nju Orleans, London, Belfast i Berlin

I ako slušaš, ja ne mogu zvati
I ako skočiš, prosto moraš pasti
I ako vikneš, ja ću te samo čuti

Kad bih mogao ostati… noć bi te se tad odrekla
Ostati, taj dan bi sačuvao svoj smisao
Ostati uz demone koje si utopila
Ostati uz duha kojeg sam pronašao
Ostati, i ta noć bi bila dovoljna

Tri su sata ujutru
Tiho je i nema nikog u blizini
Samo lupnjava i klepet
Dok jedan anđeo juri ka zemlji
Samo lupnjava i klepet
Dok jedan anđeo pada na zemlju
