The Wedding

It is best not to expect much from us
What we need are barriers
We've pushed some aside and broken some
And we are gathered here, in Your company

And now we are good children, well behaved,
In beautiful dresses all around, eyes wide open,
Look, people are all angels
And together they are just having a beautiful day

Our decaying towers and castle ruins
Our lit up churches that dream nightmares
Cloud-pictures that are swimming lazily through the sky contain a little smile, and I believe it all.

I rarely walk anywhere but where the workdays take me
And some strangers cuddle up with Hope
So that they may help each other once in a while.

And humans are good and I now believe.
Look there is reason threre through the smoke
He burnt incense, he sculpted stone,
And there is the soft bread that he throws back at you

And I am just about to believe they won't hurt us either,
The warriors out there are just playing with each other,
And the fragments will grow together again,
All will live again, all will grow again.

It's good if all the candles are lit
Because we are filled with doubt if we cannot see,
And if they are not present and tangible, that is too much for us.

They have invited you, too, for that is the thing to do
Because this is how a wedding needs to be
The sober ones all give up one by one
Because pure water changed into wine.

This is now a wedding, a rare and festive occasion
They distribute blessings only You can give
Our colorful doubts shall be covered in pure white
As long as the wedding lasts.

(Translation: Agnes Felber)

Zoran: Wedding []

Another song that keeps playing in my head all the time form the new album of Zoran, a Hungarian pop singer with exceedingly good lyrics, as time goes by, I thought. For the benefit of my monolingual friends here, I included a lame attempt at translating the words for you.
