    Default Aleksander Mežek - Siva pot

    Dear everyone! Can you please translate me this song?

    Siva pot

    Siva pot, vodi me,
    kamor hoče srce,
    na Gorenjsko, kjer gore so,
    vodi me, siva pot.

    Skoraj raj si, ti Gorenjska,
    sive gore in zelene reke.
    Tu življenje, skriva svoj zaklad,
    stara si kot sonce,
    mlajša kot pomlad.

    Siva pot...

    Le spomini, se živijo,
    zemlja stara, trdna neizprosna.
    Rdeča roža, v tvojih je laseh,
    nežna mesečina, solza v očeh.

    Siva pot...

    Ko vstaja jutro slišim klice iz daljave,
    Radio spominja me na dom, tam nekje.
    In ko se vozim po betonskih magistralah,
    mislim nate le, nate le.

    Siva pot...

    Thanks in advance! (by the way, how do you say thank you in slovenian)

    Hey, I'm not Slovene, but that song is quite easy.

    Siva pot / A Grey way

    Siva pot, vodi me, / A Grey way leads me
    kamor hoče srce, / where my heart wants to,
    na Gorenjsko, kjer gore so, / to the Gorenjska (Upper Carniola), where mountains* are
    vodi me, siva pot. / it leads me, a grey way

    Skoraj raj si, ti Gorenjska, / You're just like a paradise, You - Gorenjska
    sive gore in zelene reke./ grey mountains and green rivers
    Tu življenje, skriva svoj zaklad, / Here Life hides its treasure
    stara si kot sonce, / You're old as the Sun
    mlajša kot pomlad. / You're younger than the Spring**

    Siva pot... / Grey way...

    Le spomini, se živijo, / Only memories are still alive
    zemlja stara, trdna neizprosna./ An old land - hard and implacable one,
    Rdeča roža, v tvojih je laseh, / There is a red rose in your hair
    nežna mesečina, solza v očeh. / a tender moonlight, a tear in eyes.

    Siva pot... / Grey way...

    Ko vstaja jutro slišim klice iz daljave, / When the morning arises, I hear calls from afar
    Radio spominja me na dom, tam nekje / Radio reminds me home, somewhere there
    In ko se vozim po betonskih magistralah, / and when I ride on highways of concrete
    mislim nate le, nate le. / I think only about that, only about that

    Siva pot... / Grey way...

    *Note : name of the land - Gorenjska refers to gora 'mountain, also : upper part of sth' ( gorenji 'upper')
    **Note : Slovene name for 'spring' (a season of the year) is 'pomlad' which is connected with mlad 'young'.
