Tak i skazhi/Just say so

(music & lyrics by Konstantin Meladze)


Ty bezmolvna slovno kosmos
I zakryta na zasov.
I hotja ne ochen’ pozdno
Navevaesh’ son
Tol’ko ne skroju: mne ne do sna,
Esli so mnoju ty holodna.Skoro ja sovsem zabudu,
Kak zhe golos tvoj zvuchit.
Pokrichi, pobej posudu,
Tol’ko ne molchi.
Slovno so mnoju net ni dushi,
Esli ne ljubish’, tak i skazhi.Chorus:

Chto s toboj opjat’ ne pojmu ja,
Skazhi mne, chto davno o drugom toskuesh’,
Tol’ko ne molchi, ne molchi ves’ den’.

Sredi zhenshin govorlivyh
Ty navernoe odna
Tak fatal’no molchaliva
Ili tak umna.
Snova so mnoju net ni dushi,
Esli ne ljubish’, tak i skazhi.

Chorus 4 times:

Chto s toboj opjat’ ne pojmu ja,
Skazhi mne, chto davno o drugom toskuesh’,
Tol’ko ne molchi, ne molchi ves’ den’.

Chto s toboj opjat’ ne pojmu ja,
Skazhi mne, chto davno o drugom toskuesh’,
Tol’ko ne molchi, ne molchi ves’ den’.

Chto s toboj opjat’ ne pojmu ja,
Skazhi mne, chto davno o drugom toskuesh’,
Tol’ko ne molchi, ne molchi ves’ den’.

Chto s toboj opjat’ ne pojmu ja,
Skazhi mne, chto davno o drugom toskuesh’,
Tol’ko ne molchi, ne molchi ves’ den’.

What is it with you?

You’re silent like a cosmos
And barred.
And although it is not too late (in the evening) yet
You’re slumberous.
But I won’t hide it, I can not sleep
If you’re cold with me.

Soon I’ll forget at all
How your voice sounds.
Scream, smash dishes
Just don’t be silent
Like if there is no other soul around.
If you don’t love me, just say so.

What is it with you again, I don’t understand
Tell me that for a long
You’ve been lovesick for another one.
Just don’t be silent
Don’t be silent all day long.

Among the talkative women
You’re probably the only one
Who’s so fatally silent
Or so clever.
Again, there is not a soul around.
If you don’t love me, just say so.

What is it with you again, I don’t understand
Tell me that for a long
You’ve been lovesick for another one.
Just don’t be silent
Don’t be silent all day long.

What is  it with you again, I don’t understand
Tell me that for a long
You’ve been lovesick for another one.
Just don’t be silent
Don’t be silent all day long.

What is it with you again, I don’t understand
Tell me that for a long
You’ve been lovesick for another one.
Just don’t be silent
Don’t be silent all day long.

What is it with you again, I don’t understand
Tell me that for a long
You’ve been lovesick for another one.
Just don’t be silent
Don’t be silent all day long.
