OLDER BROTHER (Старший Брат)

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

 

You are playing, you are thinking that you can't be friends with your sister

You run away, you fly away, every day you are with another

I cannot simply forget you

I cannot simply forgive you

Every day I wait for you to come home...

 

CHORUS:

But you are much older,

And in our house, there's different music

And different questions

Your girls more models than humans

But you are much older,

No more fairytales and, can't you see,

It's so complicated

You'll never be singing to this song with me.

 

A hundred questions, a hundred answers: You've got no priorities to accept

You run away, and you don't know, how many nights mom hasn't slept

So, where are you now: in love or lust?

Or have you forgotten about us?

Everyday we wait for you to come home.

 

CHORUS

 

I myself don't understand it: What's happened to you, my older bro?

Now your life has become different, and whose fault is it? I do not know!

There is nothing we are left to do,

We're not friends but not enemies too.

Everyday I long for you to come home.

 

CHORUS (2x)

 

 

 

I'm going home today to visit my mommy (Сегодня к маме я приехала домой)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPuYVt-kuRs 

 

CHORUS:

Please do not tease me or call me names

Or ask me questions, 'cause your questions are all lame

And do not shake your head disapprovingly

I'm going home today to visit my mommy!

(3x)

 

Somewhere urban, somewhere far away

The whole week, I've been waiting for this day

The whole week has been horrid, uh-huh

La la la, la la la, la la

I'm exhausted from cold and lack of sleep

School and life have been torturous all week

The whole week, I've been waiting for right now

La la la, la la la, la la

 

CHORUS (2x)

 

Do not scold me, today I'm on a roll

I am apt to do everything backwards

Know, I am going home today, uh-huh

La la la, la la la, la la

And tomorrow I'm leaving far away

The whole week, I'll be waiting for a day

Longing for a day just like right now

La la la, la la la, la la

 

CHORUS (2x)

 

 

Older Brother 2  (Старший Брат 2)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_p6iQXfqCqM

 

 

What is this? How could this happen to our family?

Maybe it's all a dream, just a nightmare in my sleep.

I can't take, it's too much. In the kitchen, mother cries.

I will flee, I will run. I cannot live otherwise.

 

 

If he needs my advice, I won't be there anymore.

I will flee, I will fly, if he doesn't let her go.

She arrived like a star, and she brought all of her dresses

Only mother and I, we're not happy.

 

 

CHORUS (2x):

My older brother's getting married...oh, oh, oh

Now, in our life, everything's changing, oh, oh, oh.

 

 

How could he just forget that we really, really love him?

I remember he said that we'd never be without him

But she came, like a star, and she hung up all of her dresses

Only mother and I, we're not happy.

 

 

CHORUS (4x) 

 

 

 

 MOMMY, DEAR (Mамочка моя)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_o0tUGgyUE

 

CHORUS:

Mommy, mommy, dear

Mommy, mommy, dear

Please don't kick me out, out of our home

I am not the same, I am not the same,

I'm familiar now, with how grown ups love!

 

Oh mommy, I have committed a crime

My soul is frozen, my soul is in chains

The story books don't explain what it's like

There's no salvation, I cannot be saved.

When I'm with him, I forget about everything

He always told me that I was so brave

Why did I do it? I don't understand.

Don't understand why I was led astray!

CHORUS

 

He talked to me in a gentle voice

It seemed to me that, with him, I was happy

Painted my life in vivid colors

But suddenly the whole fairy tale ended.

Now I myself do not know who I am

Don't understand what it was that I wanted

Why did I do it? I don't understand.

Don't understand how I could have done it!

CHORUS (2x)
