Oftentimes


Oftentimes I think of you
I imagine your cheeks reddened in the cold
Oftentimes I daydream of you,
Before, and after midnight
Oftentimes we talk
Of everything, and of nothing
Oftentimes you’re cruel,
Oftentimes you adore me.

Oftentimes I look at myself through your eyes,
And sometimes you look through mine
Oftentimes I think all of this is meaningless,
Oftentimes I hear from you in my dreams.

Oftentimes I find myself  smiling
Then I think how incomparable this happiness is
With that happiness before.
Oftentimes I imagine if the world were to collapse
I would run to you, and you to me
Because essentially, nothing matters more to us.

Oftentimes I fear I will not find anything better, nor anything worse
Than the immense happiness,
and unbearable pain you caused me

Oftentimes does not necessarily mean always,
But often times does mean just that.

Često puta te se sjetim
Zamišljam ti pocrvenjele obraze na hladnoći
Često puta te sanjarim
Prije i poslije pola noći
Često puta razgovaramo
O svemu i ni o čemu
Često puta si bezobrazan,
Često puta me obožavaš.

Često puta se gledam iz tvojih očiju
A ponekad i ti kroz moje
Često puta mislim da je sve to skupa beznačajno
Često puta mi se javiš u snu.

Često puta se zateknem smiješući se
Pa se sjetim da je ta sreća beskrajno neusporediva
Sa onom srećom prije.
Često puta zamišljam da svijet propada
Istog trena bi krenuli trčati
Ti prema meni i ja prema tebi
Jer, nam u suštini ništa drugo nije ni bitno.

Često puta se bojim da neću naći ništa bolje, niti išta gore
Od nepodnošljive sreće i boli koju si uzrokovao

Često puta ne mora nužno značiti i stalno,
Ali često puta znači upravo to.
