Ты всегда таинственный и новый

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ты всегда таинственный и новый.
Я тебе послушней с каждым днем,
Но любовь твоя, о друг суровый,
Испытание железом и огнем.

Запрещаешь петь и улыбаться,
А молиться запретил давно.
Только б мне с тобою не расстаться
Остальное всё равно!

Так, земле и небесам чужая,
Я живу и больше не пою,
Словно ты у ада и у рая
Отнял душу вольную мою.

Tu es toujours mystérieux et nouveau

Language: French (Français) after the Russian (Русский)

Tu es toujours mystérieux et nouveau,
Je t'obéis, chaque jour,
Mais ton amour, mon sévère ami,
Est une épreuve par le fer et le feu.

Il m'est interdit de chanter et de sourire,
Et il m'est interdit de prier depuis longtemps.
Seul compte ne pas être séparée de toi,
Tout le reste m'est égal !

Ainsi, étrangère à la terre et au ciel
Je vis et ne chante pas,
Comme si dans l'enfer et le paradis
Tu avais emporté mon âme libre.
