I would appreciate it greatly if someone could give me a translation of the following bolded words; obviously in the context of the song.

Thanks.

Zajdi, zajdi jasno sonce
zajdi pomraci se
i ti jasnale, mesecino
begaj udavi se

Crnej goro, crnej sestro
dvajca da crnejme
ti za tvojte lisja le, goro
jas za mojta mladost

Tvojte lisja, goro sestro
pak ce ti se vratat
mojta mladost goro le, sestro
nema da se vrati

jasna - claear (jasna le mesecino - clear moon)
Crni goro - (Crni goro, crni sestro, dvajca da crnime - the word "crni" that means black here is used as expression for sorrow, so both him and the mountain feel sorrow)
ti za tvojte lisja, le goro - lisja means leafs from the wood
...

This is just short, I have no time for further explanation now

Thanks for the help. I was on the right track with the meanings but just needed confirmation. :thumbsup:

why do u need this?
I heard the song for the first time a few days ago but it was in Croatian. I just wanted to make sure none of the meaning of the song was lost in the translation (and it wasn't).
