DAN BALAN

 

Until the dawn (Лишь до утра)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YT2ojzrs70k

 

 

 

November night. Seems the sky is in tears.

I keep seeing your eyes. I keep living a dream.

Ice on my lips, your name's frozen on them.

Far away, far away, to you, I say farewell

 

 

 

CHORUS:

Until the dawn. Until the dawn,

I will touch you, love.

Until the dawn. Until the dawn,

Only us in the world, until the dawn.

Until the dawn, oh.

 

 

 

But remember how we flew over mountains?

But remember how we ate love from our hands?

And that night when we drank wine, and you were laughing?

We were living in a world that was only happy,

With tenderness, summer, the sun, and the roses,

And all just for love!

And when the first rays of light shone upon us,

Remember? You whispered, "This is the last summer..."

 

 

 

Your heart in my hands trembled so trepidly,

How I wanted to give! How you wanted to dream!

This name on my lips, it will drive me insane

So, I float in the clouds. Far away, far away...

 

CHORUS (2x)

 

 

It's not love (Не Любя)

Dream. In bright colors.

Again, I am awake, again I paint

The shadow of you.

Night in the warm sea.

It pounds in me, distinctly,

Pounds this freezing blood. But,

 

 

CHORUS:

It's not love! It's not love!

This is your eyes', this is your beauty's fault.

I need them, but

It's not love! It's not love!

This is your eyes', this is your beauty's fault.

Their fault.

 

 

Roles, I won't disguise.

For, when the sky gets dark,

Again I'm painting my own

Night in the southern sea.

It pounds in me distinctly,

Pounds this freezing blood. But...

 

 

CHORUS

 

They're only dreams. None of it is real.

They're only dreams, none of it is real.

Won't hide it. Won't hide it...

 

CHORUS

 

 

Petals of Tears (Лепестками Слез)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec8Yui1PmTs 

 

I will try to flow my way into your love, just like blood

Automatic, make my way straight to your heart, sadness won't depart.

And, with petals of tears, you'll leave with me today.

Again, we'll separate...

 

CHORUS:


But please just read it in my eyes,

Scared to be with you alone.

I'm not the one, please realize.

But I don't trust another.

Only only, I don't trust another.

Only only...

 

And instead of us, our shadows will collide, all the times

For a moment, will show their faces to us by the window light.

And, with petals of tears from never-plucked flowers

Is soaring my love...


CHORUS

 

I will try...ice...

But please just read it in my eyes.

I'm not the one, please realize.

 

CHORUS

 

The earth without you, dear, is blooming with petals of tears

The moon without you, dear, is blooming with petals of tears

The earth without you, dear, is blooming with petals of tears

The moon without you, dear, is blooming with petals.

 

 

 

Home (Домой)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isClkx79LQ8

 

Just as the wings frolic in the new moon somewhere

Just like on thin notes, this world I tread.

The stars, they trace my fate and my forever.

I'm soaring like smoke into this dream together!

 

REFRAIN:

To walk down through the sky

To walk while you're asleep

And return back to the place where our hearts still beat

To fly far in the sky

A little urge to cry

Only love that is so young will bring me home! 

 

Centuries will pass, we just need to save our faith

The planets collide, arrows will fly 

Uranus splashes, dimming in the pink dust

And so I will tread into this dream of us!

 

REFRAIN

 

The freshness of our love will bloom

Somewhere, rose petals will flow

Again, all that we have will go

But I hope that it won't go.  

 

REFRAIN
