Music: Alexander Rybak

Lyrics: Alexander Rybak and Diana Golde

Transliteration by Irina Kuvaldina


Kak malo nuzhno dlja togo,

Chtoby vljubit’sja s golovoj,

A mne hvatilo trjoh minut,

Chto by na veki utonut’.

Kakaja magija byla

V teh okeanah sinih glaz,

Vse mysli o tebe odnoj

Nu chto ty sdelala so mnoj?!

 

Ty nedostupna, kak zvezda,

Ty nikomu ne skazhesh’: “Da!”

I dlja tebja ja tol’ko drug.

Kak razorvat’ mne jetot krug?

Ja ot tebja shozhu s uma,

A ty ne hochesh’ ponimat’,

Chto serdce plamenem gorit.

Nu pochemu ne ja, Katrin?

 

To progonjaesh’, to vlechesh’,

Ty slovno krov’ vo mne techesh’,

Pytajus’ po glazam chitat’,

No chto-to delaju ne tak.

Ty ubegaesh’ ot ljubvi,

Brosaesh’ i krichish’: “Lovi!”

Ty bezmjatezhna, kak ditja,

I dlja tebja ljubov’ pustjak.

 

Ty nedostupna, kak zvezda,

Ty nikomu ne skazhesh’: “Da!”

I dlja tebja ja tol’ko drug.

Kak razorvat’ mne jetot krug?

Ja ot tebja shozhu s uma,

A ty ne hochesh’ ponimat’,

Chto serdce plamenem gorit.

Nu pochemu ne ja, Katrin?

Katrin pochemu? (4 times)

Chorus (2 times)

 

English translation

How little it takes

To fall deeply in love,

And three minutes were enough for me

To drown forever.

What the magic was

In those oceans of blue eyes,

All thoughts are only about you,

Well, what have you done to me?

You’re inaccessible like a star

You won’t say: “Yes ” to anybody

And I’m just a friend for you.

How can I break this cycle?

I’m going crazy for you

And you don’t want to understand

That my heart is burning flames.

Well, why not me, Kathrine?

You wave away and then attract,

You flow like a blood in me,

I try to read in your eyes,

But I do something wrong.

You run away from love

Throw and shout: “Catch!”

You are serene like a child

And love is trifle for you.

You’re inaccessible like a star

You won’t say: “Yes ” to anybody

And I’m just a friend for you.

How can I break this cycle?

I’m going crazy for you

And you don’t want to understand

That my heart is burning flames.

Well, why not me, Kathrine?

Kathrine, why? (4 times)

  1. @ Marit, it’s the same sense -- about unanswered love to Kahtrine, but words are changed.
