1…23 (trilingual)

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2017. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

This was originally written in Italian on the 21st of September. Today I added the Serbian and English versions.

1...23 can be anything. It can be as easy as one, two, three, but the 1 can be clearly separated from 2 and 3 in many ways. In both cases, it touches time, but they're not the same entities of time. Some are bigger, some are smaller, and they're about 23 apart, 1 more, 1 less.

I loved the line "M'innamoravo di tutto" by the wonderful late Italian musician and poet, Fabrizio de André, and I thought it would be a nice base to work on.

The original title of this was "Meanwhile, on the other side of the south" but then the number 1...23 came along and it moved to the north-east and got wrongstar'd.

1...23

Zaljubljivala sam se u sve na ovom zelenom svetu,
zaljubljivala sam se i u tebe - i to četiri puta.
Sada sam još uvek zaljubljena u sve,
sve sem tebe.
Zašto?

Zato što bi 1...23 i sve je prasnulo.
1...23 i sve je nestalo, zauvek!
1...23 i više me to ne dotiče.
Umri u mom srcu, a živi gde god hoćeš.
Uopšte se više ne brinem za tebe.

Zaljubljivao si se u sve na ovom zelenom svetu,
samo se nisi zaljubio u mene - i to četiri puta.
Sada nisi više zaljubljen ni u šta,
ni u šta sem sebe.
Zašto?

Zato što bi 1...23 i sve je prasnulo.
1...23 i sve je nestalo, ponovo!
1...23 i više te ništa ne dotiče.
Umri gde god hoćeš, koliko god puta hoćeš.
Živi u nekom tamo podrumu.
Možda me je još uvek briga.

1...23

I was falling in love with everything in this green world,
I also fell in love with you - four times.
And now I am still in love with everything,
Everything but you.
Why?

Because there was 1...23 and it all blew up.
1...23 and everything was gone, forever.
1..23 and I care no more.
Die in my heart, go live where you want to,
I don't care about you anymore, at all.

You were falling in love with everything in this green world,
You only didn't fall in love with me - four times.
And now you are no longer in love with anything,
Anything but you.
Why?

Because there was 1...23 and it all blew up.
1...23 and everything was gone, again.
1...23 and nothing hurts you anymore.
Die wherever you want to, as many times as you want.
Live in some basement somewhere.
Maybe I still care.

1...23

M'innamoravo di tutto nel questo mondo verde,
M'innamoravo anche di te - quattro volte.
E adesso sono ancora innamorata di tutto,
tutto trane di te.
Perché?

Perché c'è stato 1...23 e tutto si è scoppiato.
1...23 e tutto è andato via per sempre.
1...23 non me ne frega di più.
Muori nel mio cuore e vivi dove vuoi tu.
Non me frega più di te.

Tu t'innamoravi di tutto nel questo mondo verde,
Tu non ti hai innamorato solo di me - quattro volte.
E adesso non sei innamorato di niente più,
Niente trane di te.
Perché

Perché c'è stato 1..23 e tutto si è scoppiato.
1...23 e tutto si è venuto ancora una volta.
1...23 non me ne frega di più.
Muori dove vuoi, quanto volte vuooi.
Vivi in qualche scantinato da qualche parte.
Forse me ne frega ancora.
