Soviet song (1971)  – Hope (English subtitles)


An unknown star is shining, Again we are torn from our home, Again there are cities between us, Airport’s runway lights (between us). Here we have mists and rains, Here we have cold dawns, Here on the unexplored path Await intriguing adventures… Hope is my earthly compass, And luck is a reward for my bravery, And only one song is enough, It just has to be about home. Believe me, that here from afar A lot is lost in the view. The storm clouds are melting. The insults seem absurd. We need just learn to wait, We have to be calm and stubborn, In order to sometimes get from life Telegrams with little happiness… Hope is my earthly compass, And luck is a reward for my bravery. And only one song is enough, It just has to be about home. And still I can’t forget All that we haven’t finished singing then, Dear tired eyes, Moscow blue snowstorms… Again there are cities between us, Life is separating us as before, In the sky an unfamiliar star Is shining like a monument to hope. Hope is my earthly compass, And luck is a reward for my bravery, And only one song is enough, It just has to be about home.

  1. Есть песни, которые принимают тебя в тёплые объятия совсем маленьким и ведут тебя по жизни до самого конца. Эта такая. А ведь казалось бы, просто отраслевая песня, про геологов. Хоть убейте, не представляю себе песню банкиров, менеджеров по продажам или коллекторов.
    P.S. Поди коллекторы и ростовщики минусуют. Чуют небось – до ясных звёзд не дотянуться. 🙂
