My lyrics for “Song From A Secret Garden”

Violin

Light-hearted violin walked in the woodland,
In the woodland it played with the wind for desire,
Stupid violets fell in love with the violin,
Made friends laughing
And even the Heaven was smiling,
When it was fighting with the wind into art.

Once I met this violin,
Then I walked with my sorrow in the park,
A violin bow was broken in my heart
When I realized what I have done
How betrayed love of life
I ran away from home,
Believed words of unknown flowers.
A violin bow was broken in my heart,
When we happened to meet again.

Light-hearted violin walked in the woodland,
In the woodland it played with the wind for desire,
Stupid violets fell in love with the violin,
Made friends laughing
And even the Heaven was smiling,
When it was fighting with the wind into art.

A violin bow was broken in my heart,
When we happened to meet again.
Everyone was laughing at me,
Those false violets repeated to go away, away, away.
When I ran away,
Did not know that my day would be my night,
And pain has filled my time.

Sad violin was walking in the woods,
Sad violin was walking in the woods,
It thought over my words,
It thought over my words.

Forgive my light-heartedness violin,
Let me be with you again,
Heaven please smiles me again,
Take back my pain and run away the night.
Violin I broke your heart,
Violin I broke a bow.
Fulfill my wish, Violin.
Let’s forget about the pain and start a new love.

Sad violin was walking in the woods,
Sad violin was walking in the woods,
It thought over my words,
It thought over my words.

Sad violin was walking in the woods,
It thought over my words,
It thought over my words,
Let’s forget about the pain and start a new love,
Let’s forget about the pain and start a new love.

Kogda uidjesh (Russian version of “If You Were Gone”)

Lyrics by:  Larisa Rasin’kova, Elena Zherebtsova

Transliteration: Zhenya Russian

Kogda uĭdjosh, to lunnyĭ svet pogasnet
I v tishine umolknet penʹe ptits.
I shopot voln ne budet tak prekrasen
Pustynnyĭ bereg, odinokiĭ briz.

Kogda uĭjdosh, to zhizn’ vdrug opustyeet
Pechalʹna pesnʹ, chto ya poyu vo tʹme
O toĭ lyubvi i beskonechnom schast’e
Kogda vesna kazalas’ vechnoĭ mne.

No ty so mnoĭ, ved’ tol’ko v etom schast’e
Daĭ ruku mne i ot bedy spasësh.
Kak veter smel, igraet tvoim platʹem.
Menya ne stanet, yesli ty uĭdësh.

No ty so mnoĭ, ved’ tol’ko v etom schast’e
Daĭ ruku mne i ot bedy spasësh.
Kak veter smel, igraet tvoim platʹem.
Menya ne stanet, yesli ty uĭdʹosh.

Kogda uĭdjosh, to svet toskoyu polnyĭ
Pomerknet, stav nenuzhnym i pustym
Mir bez tebya pokazhet·sya mne tëmnym
Zhiznʹ – eto radostʹ, yesli ryadom ty.

No ty so mnoĭ, ved’ tol’ko v etom schast’e
Daĭ ruku mne i ot bedy spasësh.
Kak veter smel, igraet tvoim platʹem.
Menya ne stanet, yesli ty uĭdjosh.
