Embers (Russian)

from Love & Death by Andrey Samode



(in Russian)

The coals of the bonfire are playing,
The flame is burning,
And the fairy tale of the sorrowful dream
The old guitar started to sing.

It will trick you once, trick you twice,
Mesmerize you, and in the heart
A vibrant string will sting.

And in the dark, to burn to the ashes
The soul's uneasy burden
And to believe in this vividness of the dream
In the fantasy's empty enchantment.

Don't trust the string's sad cry,
Don't trust the cruel lie,
We're not allowed to dream,
We can't afford to forget ourselves.

But once having heard that pain,
When the sorrow has gripped the heart
I'm doomed to live with you
From this day until the hour of death.
