You can’t always see the stars, just stay true to who you are, stop apologizing to me … ⭐️ Pesem ostaja v SLOVENŠČINI, to je le kratek odsek za tiste, ki ne razumejo našega jezika. Sporočilo je namreč zelo pomemben del skladbe in si želiva, da bi ga vsi razumeli. ⭐️ The song will stay in SLOVENE, this is just a short part for those who don’t speak our language. The message is a very important part of the song and we wish for everyone to be able to understand it.
