“Song of Restless Youth”, 1958

Song of Restless Youth (from the movie On the Other Side, 1958)

Lyrics — Lev Oshanin

Music — Aleksandra Pakhmutova

Artist — Jurij Guljaev

Translation — Olga Yurchenko

Our job is uncomplicated,

Our job can be simply stated:

We want our land to live on,

Have no concerns but this.

Zabota u nas prostaja,

Zabota nasha takaja:

Zhila by strana rodnaja, —

I netu drugih zabot.

There’s snow and strong wind,

And all stars of the night.

My heart calls me forward

To restless faraway light.

I sneg, i veter,

I zvjozd nochnoj poljot…

Menja moe serdce

V trevozhnuju dal’ zovjot.

No matter the way that hardships

Come threatening us like lightnings.

Our strong and devout friendship

Will end only with my death.

Puskaj nam s toboj oboim

Beda grozit za bedoju,

No druzhbu moju s toboju

Odna tol’ko smert’ voz’mjot.

Chorus Pripev

And while I am able to work on,

And while I am able to walk on,

And if I am able to breathe on,

Then I will keep going on.

Poka ja hodit’ umeju,

Poka gljadet’ ja umeju,

Poka ja dyshat’ umeju,

Ja budu idti vperjod.

Chorus Pripev

We don’t need to rest on laurels,

We’re happy with what fate gives us.

You’re taking a flame in your hand

And breaking ice with your breath.

Ne nadobno nam pokoja,

Sud’boju schastliv takoju.

Ty plamja beresh’ rukoju,

Dyhan’em lomaesh’ ljod.

Chorus Pripev

And like everyone on this Earth

One day you will find your true love.

She’ll go without doubt

With you through the storms of life.

I tak zhe, kak v zhizni kazhdyj,

Ljubov’ ty vstretish’ odnazhdy.

S toboju, kak ty, otvazhno

Skvoz’ buri ona projdjot.

Chorus Pripev

Don’t think that the song is over,

That storms have lost their power.

Be ready for noble purpose,

And glory will find you then.

Ne dumaj, chto vsjo propeli,

Chto buri vse otgremeli.

Gotov’sja k velikoj celi,

A slava tebja najdjot.

Chorus Pripev
