It's raining over the city / I only hear the noise of the refrigerator.

Силуэт из стекла.

По городу идёт дождь.

Я слышу только шум холодильника.

В комнате большая черная картина,

которую я вчера закончил.

Я думаю о времени, которое проходит.

Я думаю о времени, к

которое никогда не придёт снова.

А потом я думаю о тебе.


A glass silhouette.

It's raining over the city.

I only hear the noise of the refrigerator.

There is a large black painting in the room

which I finished yesterday.

I think about the time that passes.

I think about a time that will never come again.

And then I think about you.

Я помню холмы Прованса.

Недалеко от

Средиземному морю.

Белая дорога, которая прошла

между сухой травой, как змея.

Солнце горело в небе, как пламя.

И море сияло, как зеркало.


I remember the hills of Provence.

Not far from

Mediterranean Sea.

A white road that ran

down the dry grass like a snake.

The sun burned in the sky like a flame.

And the sea shone like a mirror.
