Lyrics

Dancer (Tanečnice)

Lyrics: Robert Krestan, Translation: Ruth Ellen Gruber

An upturned chair shows the hour has passed
In a night club at the end of care.
The one last dancer in the corner stands
Brushing glitter from her long dark hair.

I´m the last guest, the last glass in my hand;
I´m the last one in this place.
I push back my hat and I look at her,
How she fools the world, with all her paint

Refrain:
Josephina, dance for me, dance the dawning sky
For this undrunk, unfinished night
Ah, dance for me good-bye

She takes her bag, my ballerina;
Just a key and a bottle of beer.
She straightens the chairs and kills the light,
She smiles as she gets out of here.

I open the door, it´s early dawn
It leads me down the path outside
Where heaven´s morning stars await
The one who has refused to hide.

The north wind’s casting its magic spells
On my beachhead by the sea
When all at once my heart reveals
A naked fantasy

Somewhere in my dream a dancer whirls
Too daring maybe for my soul
I set sail toward the open waves
Just call me Ishmael

Refrain:
Josephina, dance for me, dance the dawning sky
For this undrunk, unfinished night
Ah, dance for me good-bye

Druha Trava - Shuttle To Bethlehem

Druha Trava is a wonderfully individual band from the Czech Republic that is hard to describe.

They perform new acoustic world music with bluegrass influences. You might hear them perform a bluegrass tune, Bob Dylan tune or one by another American or British artist, or one of their many originals.

Though they basically use a typical bluegrass complement of instruments, you might see the banjo player also pick up a clarinet or Irish whistle. This along with the versatility of the dobro player helps create much of their unique sound. The Bluegrass Association of the Czech Republic declared Druha Trava "Group of the Year" in both 2005 and 2006.
