Soundtrack to the drive…

One of the favourites tracks we listened to on the tour of Poland drive. Two Polish sisters, “Ballady i Romanse”. I translate:

What will remain of those years?
Maybe memories none.
Smoking in the staircase, showing off.
We sense something, fearful of something,
But generally we having a good time.
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Sitting on the citadel’s wall, wine drunk and stoned.
Soothing nerves with laughter,
Worried with grandparents’ funeral.
But parents feel well.
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
We invent our deaths,
Now finding it tempting.
Who dies is who lose, who lose is who dies.
We sense something, fearful of something,
But generally we having a good time.
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Sitting on the citadel’s wall, wine drunk and stoned.
Soothing nerves with laughter,
Worried with grandparents’ funeral.
But parents feel well.
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Sitting on the citadel’s wall, wine drunk and stoned.
Soothing nerves with laughter,
Worried with grandparents’ funeral.
But parents feel well.
Who will swim across and who will not?
Who will drown?
Who will swim across and who will not?
Do you know?
