Vprašajte mornarje,
ti vedo za njo,
oni vejo, kje je,
kje do nje je pot.

Vprašajte mornarje,
zakaj �ivi tam sama.
in še drhti, ko morje
v temo se ovija.

Ta �enska iz soli
bo�a valove,
obraz poln �alosti,
ljubezni sled njegove.

Ta �enska iz soli,
brez njega vene
otrok v duši,
a obličje �ene.

Morje zdaj poljublja jo
kot usta so njegova
in namesto močnih rok
objema jo zdaj tema.

Ask the sailors,
ask for her,
they know where she is,
they know the way.

Ask the sailors,
why does she live alone
and is still afraid
when darkness fills the sky

That woman made of salt
touches the waves
with pain on her face,
memory of his love.

That woman made of salt
dies without him;
soul of a child, and
and face of a woman.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
