Rusalka (The Mermaid)

Svezh, chist
Omut ozera zerkalnyj,
Tih list
Kamysha pod bregom dalnim

Tam moj dom,
Les-stena hranit,
Svet-luchom
Solnce-myod pyanit

Tam moj dom -
Iz tumana krov.
Ubran dom
Kruzhevom cvetov...

Cvetyot vsekh nezhnej
belaya liliya
Svetlyh vod yasnej
Belaya liliya
YArok cvet manit -
Belaya liliya
Aromat pyanit -
Belaya liliya...

Gord, pryam
Byl kak stal tvoj vzor zhestokij
Grom, gryan
Nado mnoyu sineokoj -

Serdca strast
Unyat ne smogla
Otdalas
serdce szhyogshemu dotla

Proklyat den,
V koj prishyol moj tat!
Pala ten
Na vod lazorevuyu glad

Tolko svetla
Belaya liliya
Kak prezhde, chista
Belaya liliya
Serdce celit
Belaya liliya
Ne pomnit obid
Belaya liliya...

Svezh, chist
Omut ozera zerkalnyj,
Tih list
Kamysha pod bregom dalnim -

Tam moj dom
Tish-pokoj hranit,
Serdce snom
spit, tebya prostiv

Tam moj dom -
A liliyah glad vody
Vechnym snom
Spish pod nimi ty.

Cvetyot vsekh nezhnej
belaya liliya
Svetlyh vod yasnej
Belaya liliya
Kak ya tebya zhdala...
Belaya liliya
V omut vod zvala
Belaya liliya
Krepko obnyala...
Belaya liliya
V omut uvlekla
Belaya liliya
Glad vody svetla
Belaya liliya
Gde cvetyot, nezhna
Belaya liliya...

Cyrillic version: «Русалка».


Translation

Fresh, clear
Crystal pool of lake behind me,
Reed's leaves
Sprawl along the tranquil lakeside

There's my home
Hidden by dense wood
Sun like mead
Makes me feel so good

That's my home
Such a misty place
Beautified
By the flower's lace

Blossoms tenderly
White water lily
As the lake serene
White water lily

Beckons lucid prime
White water lily
Heady scent so bright
White water lily

Proud, straight
Hard as steel
Your glance was for me
Storm! Rain!
In my blue eyes
Glimpse of sorrow

Ardent heart
Couldn't bear this hurt
Gave my heart
To the one who burnt

Curse that day
Beloved came to me!
Shadow fell on lake
And changed everything

Still stands only
White water lily
Always bright and clear
White water lily

Heals the broken heart
White water lily
Tears my grief apart
White water lily

Fresh, clear
Crystal pool of lake behind me,
Reed's leaves
Sprawl along the tranquil lakeside

That's my home
Peace and silence reigns
Heart like stone -
Forgot all offence

There's my home
Full of lilies
Petals keep
Your eternal sleep

Blossoms tenderly
White water lily
As the lake serene
White water lily
Agony of suspense
White water lily
Lonely flower's dance
White water lily

Fold you in my arms
White water lily
Drag you, pull you down
White water lily
Mirror-lake serene
White water lily
Blossoms tenderly
White water lily
