lyrics
Prayer
I can’t close my eyes
The empty bed chases sleep away
And my life is melting away
And it’s disappearing quickly, in a split second

It seems I’m losing my mind
As I don’t even notice reality
I still love you
I still trust you blindly

Like crazy, I don’t know where to go
I’m afraid of a new love
And the days are like open wounds
I don’t count them anymore

Prayer, like ardour on my lips
Prayer, just your name, instead of words
Heaven knows, just as I do
How many times I’ve repeated this
Heaven knows, just as I do
That your name is my only prayer

But I can’t lie to God
As long as I pray
And I’d be lying if I said
That I don’t love you

Prayer, like ardour on my lips
Prayer, just your name, instead of words
Heaven knows, just as I do
How many times I’ve repeated this
Heaven knows, just as I do
That your name is my prayer
(Prayer, prayer)

And heaven knows, just as I do
How many times I’ve repeated this
Heaven knows, just as I do
That your name is my only prayer

That your name is my prayer

2008


The second Serbian entry, performed in Belgrade was written by past entrant for Serbia as part of Serbia and Montenegro and contest host Željko Joksimović. The song “Oro”, an ethnic ballad, performed by Jelena Tomašević came 6th and received 160 points in the overall rankings.

lyrics
Oro
Who caresses my loved one?
Who kisses those sleepy lips?
Don’t forget my name
When she begins to kiss you
My dear cornstalks, don’t sleep
Kiss him, and put me asleep

Don’t break my ice, there’s no water within
Don’t put salt on my wound, I have no more tears
Whoever dances my Oro
He shouldn’t dance it for the two of us
Cornstalks, put me to sleep

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Wake me on Saint Vitus’ day, to look at him again

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Wake me on Saint Vitus’ day, to look at him again
Wake me on Saint Vitus’ day, to look at him once more

2009

lyrics
The shoe
My old shoe has seen half the world
Wherever I treaded was my home
Here and there, East and West
Wherever I came, I felt at my place

I’m starting to panic, this old habit
My heart would follow her
Yet I’m a fool, an old raff
Let everything perish, I’ll stick to my path

She didn’t, didn’t, didn’t want me
Until I had the money
No bro, she didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t desire me
Until I became rich
Completely

My old shoe has seen half the world
Wherever I treaded was my home
Here and there, East and West
Wherever I came, I felt at my place

I’m starting to panic, this old habit
My heart would follow her
Yet I’m a fool, an old raff
Let everything perish, I’ll stick to my path

She didn’t, didn’t, didn’t want me
Until I had the money
No bro, she didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t desire me
Until I became rich

She didn’t, didn’t, didn’t want me
Until I had the money
No bro, she didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t desire me
Until I became rich
Completely

She didn’t, didn’t, didn’t want me
Until I had the money
No bro, she didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t desire me
Until I became rich

She didn’t, didn’t, didn’t want me
Until I had the money
No bro, she didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t, didn’t desire me
Until I became rich
Completely

This is Balkan
Hey… Ljubica, Ljubica
Ljubica, you’re making my mouth water
Hey… squeeze me, kiss me
Ljubica, press me against your chest

You’re kissing me like a girl, you have no shame
Belgrade, Belgrade, I’m cheeky
Not once, not twice, three times for me
Belgrade, Belgrade, three times, it’s our way

Balkan, Balkan, Balkan, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on

Hey… Ljubica, Ljubica
Your breasts are a deadly weapon, Ljubica

You’re kissing me like a girl, you have no shame
Belgrade, Belgrade, I’m cheeky
Not once, not twice, three times for me
Belgrade, Belgrade, three times, it’s our way

Balkan, Balkan, Balkan, this is Balkan, come on!
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on
Hop, hop, hop, this is Balkan, come on

Just a bit, just a bit, just a bit, just a bit
Just a bit, just a bit, just a bit, just a bit
Just a bit, just a bit, give it to him

You’re kissing me like a girl, you have no shame
Belgrade, Belgrade, I’m cheeky
Not once, not twice, three times for me
Belgrade, Belgrade, three times, it’s our way

lyrics
Magical
Freezing winter and damn ice everywhere
I’ve really had a rough day
People are strange, no one follows the rules
I’m dragging myself home, tired

And while I’m digging through my purse to find the key
Losing my nerve already
My sun, my moon and all the stars
My man opens the door
My man is at the door

And at the same moment I’m worth a thousand women
Because to him I’m beautiful and strong as a rock
And when he holds me, I know everything is fine
The man is magical

He colours all of my darknesses into spring
Ever since he loves me, I stand tall
And for him, I’m good, just the way I am
The man is magical

Farewell to sorrow and hello to my smile
Happiness moved in with him
So warm, gentle and wonderfully himself
He belongs to me only

Long talks, he’s my best friend
With him, I’m laughing like crazy
People tell me they haven’t seen a couple shining like that
Our love is contagious

Now I know that I’m worth a thousand women
Because to him, I’m beautiful and strong as a rock
And when he holds me, I know everything is fine
The man is magical

He colours all of my darknesses into spring
Ever since he loves me, I stand tall
And for him, I’m good, just the way I am
The man is magical

Now I know (that I’m worth a thousand women)
(And when he holds me, I know everything is fine)
The man is magical

He colours all of my darknesses into spring
Ever since he loves me, I stand tall
And for him, I’m good, just the way I am
The man is magical

lyrics
Love is not a thing
Better luck next time
You tell me that so easily
I see that it’s not working for us
And yet it could have

And if you go
Know that something of yours
Will stay here

Love is not a thing
That I could give back to you
Look, it’s just me
I’ve always loved you

Love is not a thing
That I don’t know what to do with
I wish you all the best
This love is just my shipwreck

Your love is not a thing
That I could give back to you
Look, it’s just me
I’ve always loved you

My love is not a thing
That I don’t know what to do with
I wish you all the best
This is my shipwreck

Just go, just go there
Fly, sing, give your heart to someone else
But know that goodbye isn’t the end

My love is not a thing
That I don’t know what to do with
I wish you all the best
This love is just my shipwreck
