Те, кто мне казался частицей меня же,
Спешат отвернуться. И глупо винить их,
Ведь люди слабы, как лесные олени,
Бегущие прочь от пожаров, горящих
В земле, что их верой и правдой кормила.

Не властны они над инстинктами жизни,
Не вольны любви только ради погибнуть.
Лишь лес, догорев и сравнявшись с землей,
Восстанет из пепла.

Offspring – Dirty Magic

October 11, 2007

The original:

Lyrics after the jump.

Anastasia Prihodko – Tri Zimy (Three Winters) (originally by Taisia Povaliy)

October 9, 2007

A re-cover of Anastasia Prihodko’s cover of a Taisia Povaliy’s song. Anastasia Prihodko is a participant of the Russian “Fabrika 7” show (Russian analogue of the “American Idol”). She has the greatest voice in the show, and this song is just amazing in its Russian-ness.

Arcady Severny – Gospoda Oficery

October 6, 2007

This is the song that gives me goosebumps each time I perform it. Definitely my favourite. Though not the best performance this time.

The song is about the doom fate of the officers of the white army during the Russian Civil War.
