Another of L.K.'s challenges - "A Day of Sharing Song". I posted "Miss Sarajevo" on my blog awhile ago, but felt it was perfect for today's challenge. Every time I hear this song, I am moved by its passion, beauty, and message. So much so, that I felt it needed to be posted again. Here are the lyrics:

"Miss Sarajevo"
Is there a time for keeping your distance
A time to turn your eyes away
Is there a time for keeping your head down
For getting on with your day

Is there a time for kohl and lipstick
A time for cutting hair
Is there a time for high street shopping
To find the right dress to wear

Here she comes
Heads turn around
Here she comes
To take her crown

Is there a time to run for cover
A time for kiss and tell
Is there a time for different colours
Different names you find it hard to spell

Is there a time for first communion
A time for East 17
Is there a time to turn to Mecca
Is there time to be a beauty queen

Here she comes
Beauty plays the clown
Here she comes
Surreal in her crown

Dici che il fiume
Trova la via al mare
E come il fiume
Giungerai a me
Oltre i confini
E le terre assetate
Dici che come fiume
Come fiume...
L'amore giungera
E non so piu pregare
E nell' amore non su piu sperare
E quell'amore non su piu aspettare

You say that the river
finds the way to the sea
and like the river
you will come to me
beyond the borders
and the dry lands
You say that like a river
like a river...
the love will come
the love...
And I don't know how to pray anymore
and in love I don't know how to hope anymore
(End of translation)

Is there a time for tying ribbons
A time for Christmas trees
Is there a time for laying tables
And the night is set to freeze

Perfection - my favorite band, U2 and Luciano Pavarotti...
