Tanya Yaroslava

Don’t Cry  (translated from Ukrainian)  Artist: Svyatoslav Vakarchuk

Don’t cry, Don’t cry

While we’re in love,

While the moon that true to us

In the sky above.

Don’t cry, don’t cry,

While the sky is near,

Only you embrace the soul

With your hungry tears.

For the earth will be awake,

In the head is mist,

Some go west, some go east,

But the soul is here to stay.

Don’t go, don’t go,

You won’t loose your fate,

Let the true friend only see,

How your love is great.

Don’t go, don’t go,

Be with me awhile,

Soon the sun will separate

My soul from my mind.

And the earth will be awake,

In the head is mist,

Some go west, some go east,

But the soul is here to stay.

Ukrainian version:

Ne plach (Не плач)

Не плач, не плач

Поки я з тобою,

Поки місяць вірний нам

В небі над водою.

Не плач, не плач,

Поки небо з нами,

Тільки душу обійми

Жадними сльозами.

Бо земля прокинеться,

Голова стуманиться,

Хто на захід, хто на схід,

А душа ж то тут зостанеться.

Не йди, не йди,

Долю не загубиш,

Най побачить вірний друг,

Як ти сильно любиш.

Не йди, не йди,

Побудь зі мною,

Скоро сонце розведе

Душу з головою.

І земля прокинеться,

Голова стуманиться,

Хто на захід, хто на схід,

А душа ж то тут зостанеться.
