Damir Kedžo and Tijana Bogićević have teamed to give us the Balkan banger, “Hram” (Temple). This is the first time Damir and Tijana have collaborated together on music.
Damir and Tijana have worked with a whole host of Serbian and Croatian music professionals, including Aleksandra Milutinović and Dušan Alagić, who both worked on the lyrics, composition and arrangement of the song.
The music video sees Damir and Tijana dividing their time between the beautiful scenery of Rijeka in Croatia and Sugar Palace, whilst working with Horses from the Njivice Equestrian Club.
I’ve left my days in the night
And I’m still mad at myself
I look into the darkness as into your eyes
In that interrupted holiday
The hope that you remember me still feeds me
I’ve given you my everything
Love isn’t taking and then giving it back
It hurts me
Your love is the temple of love
Even when the sky shatters you’re my silver and gold
The temple of love
Surrender is our victory
Our souls are our mirrors for evermore
Don’t believe me a word
Only our hearts know
When desiring they lose their breath
This love has begun at the end
But I’m still strong enough for that fear
