Расстались гордо мы

Language: Russian (Русский)

Расстались гордо мы,
Ни словом, ни слезою
Я грусти признака тебе не подала.
Мы разошлись навек!
Но если-бы с тобою я встретиться могла!
[ Ах, если б я хоть встретиться могла!]1

Без слёз, без жалоб я
Склонилась пред [судьбою]2.
Не знаю, сделав мне так много в жизни зла,
Любил ли ты меня?
Но если-бы с тобою я встретиться могла!
[ Ах, если б я хот встретиться могла!]1

Mais si je pouvais te rencontrer à nouveau !

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

Nous nous sommes quittés fièrement,
Pas un mot ni une larme,
Je n'ai laissé sortir aucun signe de tristesse.
Nous nous sommes quittés pour toujours !
Mais si je pouvais te rencontrer à nouveau !
[Ah ! si je pouvais te rencontrer !]

Sans larmes, sans plaintes,
J'ai incliné ma tête devant mon sort,
Je ne sais pas, tu m'as fait tant de mal dans ma vie,
Si tu m'aimais ?
Mais si je pouvais te rencontrer à nouveau !
[Ah ! si je pouvais te rencontrer !]
