Attention: This video has English subtitles!


Как грустно, туманно кругом,
Тосклив, безотраден мой путь,
А прошлое кажется сном,
Теснит наболевшую грудь.

Ямщик, не гони лошадей,
Мне некуда больше спешить,
Мне некого больше любить,
Ямщик, не гони лошадей.

Как жажду средь мрачных равнин
Измену забыть и любовь,
Но память мой злой властелин,
Все будит минувшее вновь.


Все было лишь ложь и обман,
Прощай и мечты, и любовь,
А боль незакрывшихся ран
Останется вечно со мной.


How sad, foggy all around,
My way is melancholy, desolate,
And the past seems a dream,
Torments my sore breast.

Coachman, do not whip up the horses,
I have no more a place to hasten to,
I have nobody to love any more,
Coachman, do not whip up the horses.

How I crave among the gloomy plains
To forget faithlessness and love,
But memory – my malicious lord –
Evokes the past all over again.


It was all just lies and deceit.
Farewell to my dreams and love,
But the pain of unclosed wounds
Will remain eternally with me.
