Soviet song – Wondrous Future (english subtitles)


I hear a voice from the wondrous future It’s the voice of morning in the silver dew I hear a voice, and the glittering path Makes my head spin like a childhood carousel. Oh wondrous future,
Please do not be cruel to me, Please do not be cruel to me,
Please do not be cruel. I travel from a pure source
Towards a wondrous future, Towards a wondrous future,
I now begin my way. I hear a voice from the wondrous future It beckons me to wonderful lands I hear a voice and it is asking me strictly What I have done for tomorrow today. Oh wondrous future,
Please do not be cruel to me, Please do not be cruel to me,
Please do not be cruel. I travel from a pure source
Towards a wondrous future, Towards a wondrous future,
I now begin my way. I swear I’ll become more honest and kinder, And I’ll never leave behind a friend in need. I hear a voice, and hastening towards its call Along a path which no footprints mark. Oh wondrous future,
Please do not be cruel to me, Please do not be cruel to me,
Please do not be cruel. I travel from a pure source
Towards a wondrous future, Towards a wondrous future,
I now begin my way. Oh wondrous future,
Please do not be cruel to me, Please do not be cruel to me,
Please do not be cruel. I travel from a pure source
Towards a wondrous future, Towards a wondrous future,
I now begin my way. Towards a wondrous future,
I now begin my way…

  1. Always loved this song, saw the film. There something sad about this song. It feels like a premonition about the USSR's collapse.

  2. There is English adaptation of this song:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MgFbzKPuq8

    Some meanings were changed and some rhymes were lost there but it still seems nice for me.

    And please do not draw any parallels with USSR history and politics because this song is about everyone's life, destiny and hopes.

    PS: Russian version sounds better with solo in couplets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6bGrfP94JY

  8. This song has an oddly haunting feeling. As if we are spectators for a doomed past we cannot hope to warn.

  9. In a strange way, it is like the Soviet Union itself is apologizing. "I swear that i'll become more honest and kinder, and i'll never leave behind a friend in need"

  10. When I hear the part that says I´ll never leave behind a friend in need, I feel that I am in a natural disaster trying to rescue one of my friends that is in risk.
