Не верь мне друг, когда в избытке горя

Language: Russian (Русский)

Не [верь мне]1 друг, когда в [избытке]2 горя
Я говорю, что разлюбил тебя!
В отлива час не верь измене моря,
Оно к земле воротится, любя.

Уж я тоскую, прежней страсти полный,
[Мою]3 свободу вновь тебе отдам.
И уж бегут [с обратным]4 шумом волны
Издалека к любимым берегам.

Translation(s): DUT FRE GER GER GER

Ne me crois pas, mon ami, quand dans un...

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

Ne me crois pas, mon ami, quand dans un excès de chagrin
Je dis que je ne t'aime plus !
À l'heure du reflux de la marée, ne crois pas que la mer a trahi,
Elle reviendra à la terre pleine d'amour.

Je suis déjà languissant, plein de l'ancienne passion,
Je te donnerai à nouveau ma liberté,
Et maintenant les vagues reviennent en rugissant
Du lointain vers les plages bien-aimées.
