Guru9

 

When I had been so little my life was very simple

One morning I woke up and saw the Guru

He walked and wiggle – jiggled, not walked but flied and giggled

And easy breeze was carrying him through…

 

Waltz26

 

He said “Hello! I’m here! This is me, hello!

 

Guru15

 

He revealed to me one simple ancient law:

 

Guru17

 

When things are going smoothly like a ballroom dance

Don’t rush into it, smile

Give it a chance

Stick to your own style and…

Enjoy the advance!

Е-е, е-е – wow!

 

Guru11

 

If weakness comes around, don’t you get lost!

Keep the waltzing tempo at any cost

Say to yourself “I am not

Getting turned and tossed!”…

 

Waltz15

 

(Тiтriririri -ta pa pi- rum -pa- pa -pa

Тiтriririri -ta pa pi- rum -pa- pa -pa)

 

Waltz24

 

From then on I am free

I live and eat and sleep

I walk, I breathe, lay down

I am standing upright

 

Guru16

 

That morning long ago I learned the law of flow

A simple rule from Guru to abide by

I am saying: ”Hi! Hello! This is me, hello!”

That is all, it’s not a secret at all!

I Came To An Ash Tree To Ask For My Beloved One by V. Kirshon and M. Tariverdiev. Performed by S. Nikitin. English by Vesper Lynd

I came by an ash tree
To ask for my beloved one
Ash tree did not answer
Quaking with its head

 

Ash10

 

I came by a poplar tree
To ask for my beloved one
Poplar tree dropped leaves on me
And turned away instead

 

Poplar3

 

I came by the autumn then
To ask for my beloved one
Autumn had responded
With rainy days ahead

 

Ash4

 

I came to a rainy day
To ask for my beloved one
Rainy day was weeping with
Tears of words unsaid…

 

Rainy5

 

I came by the crescent moon
To ask for my beloved one
Half-moon drifted away from me
Behind the puffy cloud

 

Crescent Mooon2

 

I came to a puffy cloud
To ask for my beloved one
The cloud disappeared
Sorrowful and proud…

 

Puffy5

 

You are my one and only friend
Where is my beloved one?
Tell me if you only know
Help me, I am in chaos

 

Rainy1

 

Faithful friend replied to me

 

Full Moon1

 

Genuine friend had answered me

 

Ash3

 

There was a beloved one for you

 

Ash7

 

There was a beloved one for you

There was a beloved one for you

She became my spouse

I came to ask an ash tree,

I came to ask a poplar tree

I came to ask the autumn then…

Do You Know, It Will Only Get Better by Mark Minkov and Veronika Tushnova, English by Vesper Lynd

Do you know, it will only get better

Summer wind will bring back the chatter

It will work the magic with weather

The memory page will turn over…

 

Happy31

 

It will draw you and me even closer

It will draw me and you even closer

And once again at the sunrise

We will be together…

 

Happy19

 

What is happiness? It is like a bird

If you let it go, you won’t catch it

And you can’t lock it up – that’s absurd

All emotions are stirred…

Never easy with it, understand it?

 

Happy1

 

Do you know, it will only get better

The fast trains are travelling everywhere

The airplanes are flying in the air

The ships set off to the sea…

 

happy29

 

I had always been a go-getter

I just have to be a go-getter

But if you open your heart for adventure

You won’t cry and keep carefree …

 

Happy3

 

What is happiness? It is just a bird

If you let it go, you won’t catch it

And you can’t lock it up – that’s absurd

When emotions are stirred…

Never easy with it, do you get it?

 

Happy15

 

I will not try to trap it merciless

I will not try to trap it merciless

I will not try to trap it merciless

Those wings are meant to be flying…

 

Happy2

 

If you wish to fly, have a happy flight!

 

Happy5

 

If you choose to fly, have a happy flight!

 

Happy4

 

If you fly away, have a happy flight!

Your return will be so electrifying!

Sunlit Promised Island by Mashina Vremeni, English by Vesper Lynd

All ropes are tightened

Fairy tale is a deceit

 

Castle3

 

Sunlit Promised Island

Is gone at drumbeat

 

Drum2

 

No enchanted castle

On Earth to explore

Someone made an error

Keeping the score

 

Fairies4

 

All fairies are faking it

There are no golden hills

Others are catching

The stars and the thrills

 

No birds of paradise

To banish the crows

 

Someone made an error

Keeping the scores

 

Crows5

 

In spring it’s all melting

The snow and the ice

 

The ocean, the mountains

The pure blue skies

 

You know what will save us?

The faith and belief

In God’s perfect timing all get a relief

Leaving Germany (D’Allemagne) by Patricia Kaas, English by Vesper Lynd

Some of the facts, people, places, poetry and music mentioned in this song:

* Question: “In Germany the age of consent is 14″ –  True or false? Answer: ” Yes, it’s s true”

 

“…Of all the ways of defining man, the worst is the one which makes him out to be a rational animal.”

“The pseudonym for God when He did not want to sign”.

“I thank fate for having made me born poor. Poverty taught me the true value of the gifts useful to life”.

Anatole France

***

* Originally, it was a square – the area known today asPlatz der Vereinten Nationen was Landsberger Tor’ – one of the many gates that surrounded Berlin in the past. In 1950 when Berlin was cleared of all debris left from the Second World War, the government of East Berlin decided to rename this place for the Leninplatz

The area had the goal to create a Socialist town center and a place where people would feel free to express themselves

Germany82

 

* Apollinaire is considered one of the foremost poets of the early 20th century, as well as one of the most impassioned defenders of Cubism and a forefather of Surrealism  

He is credited with coining the term “cubism” in 1911 to describe the emerging art movement and the term “surrealism” in 1917 to describe the works of Erik Satie

“I am bound to the King of the Sign of Autumn

Parting I love the fruits I detest the flowers

I regret every one of the kisses that I’ve given

Such a bitter walnut tells his grief to the showers

My Autumn eternal O my spiritual season

The hands of lost lovers juggle with your sun

A spouse follows me it’s my fatal shadow

The doves take flight this evening their last one…”

“…And how I love O season how I love your rumbling

The falling fruits that no one gathers

The wind the forest that are tumbling

All their tears in autumn leaf by leaf

The leaves

You press

A crowd

That flows

The life

That goes”

 

* Lili Marleen is a German love song performed by Lale Andersen which became popular during World War II throughout Europe and the Mediterranean among both Axis and Allied troops. Written in 1915 as a poem, the song was published in 1937 and was first recorded by Lale Andersen in 1939 as “Das Mädchen unter der Laterne” (“The Girl under the Lantern”)

People Are Meeting by ‘Vesyolye Rebyata’, English by Vesper Lynd

People are meeting

People are dating

And marrying

I am not lucky with that to a point of disaster

Finally yesterday I saw an adorable special girl

Right over there where the trains

Are running so fast

 

Spleen59

 

There she went into her car

Smiled so sweetly from afar

The train took off and I just froze

Only waved with my hand in response

 

Spleen78

 

Long pretty hair neatly arranged in the ponytails

Radiant smile

Bubbly and sweet as champagne

Slender and young, inspiring, genuine, lovable…

May be somewhere over here I’ll see her again

 

Without You1

 

There she went into her car

Smiled so sweetly from afar

The train took off and I just froze

Only waved with my hand in response

People are dating

And marrying

I am not lucky with that to a point of disaster

 

Without You7

 

To a point of disaster

To a point of disaster

 

Without You39

 

To a point of disaster
