A Hit Song 01:47
Verse 1: This song is gonna be a BIG HIT Everybody's dancing to the RIGHT BEAT Cans of beer are lying down ON THE FLOOR Someone made a big hole IN THE DOOR Chorus: And it will be a night We'll party hard The whole night And then right from the start We'll play it loud All through the night Verse 2: Night will fade away but we won't GO TO BED Party will continue 'til there's NOONE LEFT Let's turn the volume now UP TO TEN Let's play this crazy song ONCE AGAIN © Aleksandr Imaykin
Verse 1: Мы спешим куда-то, забывая близких и друзей Словно сновидение, прошлое является нам Не дать остановиться себе и добиваться чтоб Проблемы и заботы заглушали подступающую боль Chorus 1: Жизни остаётся так немного Вперёд улетают годы И не суждено нам их остановить Тревога за тревогой Серпантинная дорога Хочется сберечь себя Не дать упасть вниз Verse 2: Сложно понять сердце головой Сложно успеть всё, что так хочешь ты, Добиться мечты и уважать себя Ведь главный поединок - борьба с самим собой Bridge: Нам пора бы понять, что главное в жизни Решить для себя, куда мы идём Ведь завтра, возможно, те, кого мы любили Не постучаться в дверь к нам никогда Chorus 2: Жизни остаётся так немного Вперёд улетают годы И не суждено нам их остановить Тревога за тревогой Серпантинная дорога Нет пути назад Жизни остаётся так немного Вперёд улетают годы И не суждено нам их остановить Тревога за тревогой Серпантинная дорога Просто хочется жить © Olga Karbusheva
Inner Pain 02:50
Verse 1: Again and again You're screaming with pain That comes from within of your heart Trying to fight Trying to get over Feelings that tear you apart Do you know that your life is not long? Don't you know that you've got to be strong? Chorus 1: No, no one can really tell What's in your private hell That makes you feel so bad They'll never understand What's going in your mind You only need to find Your way and your solution Verse 2: You think that you Know what is true But nothing is true in this place Truth can be fake Don't make a mistake And all your life think for yourself Do you know that life's not always mean? Do you know that to waste time's a sin? Chorus 2: We, we are the ones to blame For all our inner pain Cause we are so unsure But we've got to endure This world around us And walk our path to stars With faith in our hearts... © Aleksandr Imaykin
Verse 1: Шум, суета, злые крики людей Круговорот кровожадных идей Ты здесь один среди массы врагов Спрячься от них за крепкий засов Bridge 1: В дверь раздаётся удар за ударом Злые враги угрожают пожаром Не уступай и смелее держись И вознесётся твоя душа ввысь Chorus: Не сдавайся и поверь Лишь закрой покрепче дверь Пусть тебя не понимают Пусть проклятьем угрожают Да, ты занял туалет Ты сидишь там много лет В коммуналке шум и гам Удивительный бедлам Verse 2: Книги, нетбук и смартфон под рукой Ты только здесь остаёшься собой Не позволяй им себя одолеть И борись не на жизнь, а на смерть Bridge 2: Вот и полиция, вот управдом Снова тебе угрожают судом Но ты не сдашься, пусть мир подождёт Скоро к тебе вдохновенье придёт © Tatyana Imaykina
Vision 03:19
Verse 1: I see it in my head A vision of people lying dead And so it seems that no one left besides me A nightmare that will never end They weren't prepared to die But planes just dropped bombs from the sky It's always true - the innocent will suffer The guilty ones keep out of the fight Chorus: Through the darkness shone a blinding light And no one will be left alive tonight Their souls will reach up for the stars Into the void that spins around us Verse 2: The dawn is getting near The vision quickly disappears I'm waking up and slowly realising The vision - it was just a dream But when I look into the screen I'm speechless - is there what it seems The cruelest joke I've never could imagine My nightmare came alive out of my mind © Aleksandr Imaykin
Verse 1: The sky is turning to the grey And Earth's becoming cold again The autumn came and sunny days Are changed with long and heavy rains What's happened with us? I can't understand it We don't even look in each other's face We are so small, so weak and empty And so alone in crowded place Bridge 1: You think that nothing will change And things will stay the same But it's not gonna be that way Chorus 1: Every day I try to understand you And every day you are so far away The truth is that you even don't pretend to Hear the things that I would like to say Verse 2: The snow is falling and the trees Are left so bare and so alone The winter wind is blowing free It froze our hearts - they are like stones We both understand that everything's over No more turning back, no more pain and tears No need to forgive, no need to remember All hope is gone, all faith disappeared Bridge 2: All I wish is to divide our ways To find again some peace And memories to fade away Chorus 2: Every day I tried to understand you And every day you were so far away And now you even don't need to pretend to Hear anything - there's nothing left to say © Aleksandr Imaykin
Verse 1: I don’t see really why I need to spend my time on it Reading is not so much fun as watching the TV I’d rather go partying all night I’d better be on the town I only wish to get the books And burn them all down And burn them all down Chorus: All right – All right OK – OK But let me tell you anyway You think – you think That you – that you Really know just what to do One day – one day You’ll find – you’ll find You are dragging far behind You may be a speeder You may be a bleeder Today he’s a reader – Tomorrow a leader Verse 2: When I just think about the books I’m getting bored to death I’d better get stoned, I’d better get high, I’d better take some meth I don’t know where I’m going now And I don’t really care I’m so well off not reading at all Got no time to spare Got no time to spare © Aleksandr Imaykin
Verse 1: You wake up every morning With pain through all your body And ask yourself just what for You're torturing yourself A flash flies through your minding: "You've got to achieve something And if you are on this way You have to win not lose then" Chorus: The time when I was a ballet dancer Was good for me and bad for me It made me stronger, more resilient, Exhausted, worn out, with a hole in the chest The time when I was a ballet dancer Was hard for me, delightful for me I remember it like the best one And I want to forget it Verse 2: Every muscle becomes tense And you can't stop the dance All your toes are in blood But it's not enough If you know it doesn't worth All that pain, suffer and thrill Nothing comes true Nothing will stay with you © Olga Karbusheva
