English translations of some Russian songs from this album:

1. Nostalgy, In Search of E lDorado

Airplane flying off icy runway in America
Blizzard outside
Blues eye' man with blonde hair from faraway
What are you doing here?

Underneath clouds turning like a snowflakes
And melting on the lights of strange land
Where we were looking for El Dorado gold
So many many years, sifting Through the Sand
But never found any gold

I don't know if it is a dream or reality
But board attendant in airplane looks like you when I met you...
Looking at me and smiling and tells me
It is time to leave ... this place

But our flight is not over yet
And we still don't know if we are falling or reaching stars
Maybe there is somebody, something which waits for us there?
Or just endless cold emptiness?

Tighten your seatbelts and go down through clouds
We are coming to our destination
Somewhere down is airport
In the city that we are forever young
Keeping each other hands walking near the sea
And there is nobody else around...
Just us

===============================
2. Seaman Song

When I sang song without words
I thought about you
When I was so far from our warm shore
I thought about you

When I saw a distant ship
I thought about you
And on another end of the world
I thought about you

When I've heard noise of rolling waves
I thought about you
On the streets of foreign land
I thought about you

I saw many beautiful women
But I thought about you
Where are you now my only love?
I thought about you

When this storm quietly encroached
I thought about you
When our ship engine stop working
I thought about you

when water started to come in
I thought about you
when giant wave came
I thought about you

When I prayed to the God
I thought about you
And when I saw sky last time
I thought about you
================================

3. Money is Necessary Evil.. :)

One wise man told a long time ago
That Money is Evil but we need them anyway..
Necessary Evil..Necessary Evil..
How can we live without Necessary Evil..?

Today I have nothing
My pockets are empty and my stomach demands food!
Necessary Evil..Necessary Evil..
Give me my Necessary Evil..!

I woke up in the morning again
with desire to do a lot of good and kind things to everybody!
But I was not lucky...I was not lucky...
Tell me where is my Necessary Evil..!

I depressed I feel sad
and this blue spring day will be dark and grey
Until I'll get it..Until you'll get it
That ... necessary evil!

And we are having agood time!
And I sing to you again same my song
We have money - necessary evil and we are having fun
we are having fun - hey Money is Evil! but Necessary Evil! :)

=============================================
4. Midnight cafe

Last sigarette smoke dissolved in the black sky
And all doors were shut in the midnight cafe
The cold wind throw in my face autumn leaves which like torn pages
of story about you and me

You're not with me - rain whispers
You're not with me - you're not waitng for me
You're not with me - the star is falling
You're not with me - you'll never tell me Yes...

Remember how waves tenderly touch the shore where we together
And how we warm each other on the bed of the sand
So why seagulls crying like crazy today?
That love burned away as september sunset..

You're not with me - rain whispers
You're not with me - you're not waitng for me
You're not with me - the star is falling
You're not with me - you'll never tell me Yes...

So why I feel such a pain and such a cold in my heart?
And spicy old wine do not make me drunk at all...
And words of my song is like a heavy stones,
And there is a wall between our souls...

You're not with me - rain whispers
You're not with me - you're not waitng for me
You're not with me - the star is falling
You're not with me - you'll never tell me Yes...

====================================
5. White smoke

Cold autumn day
snow is falling without any sound
I'm walking alone by this city streets

Here is our small park
But you're not there
There is only white smoke of my memories...

white white white smoke between you and me
white white white smoke in the place where you were standing
white white white smoke can't go away from me
white white white smoke in this black night

Here we sit with you on the bench
And you told me Yes
And in glass of this window I saw your smile

You are my Joy and pain
You are my Happiness and misfortune
Everything died in fire but I still love you!

white white white smoke between you and me
white white white smoke in the place where you were standing
white white white smoke can't go away from me
white white white smoke in this black night

Everything was so easy!
But those days are gone...
And we can not come back there..

But somewhere very far
At the end of the universe
I can still see our star..

white white white smoke between you and me
white white white smoke in the place where you were standing
white white white smoke can't go away from me
white white white smoke in this black night

======================================================
6. Island

When sunset is so bright!
Receive it's gift
Those flowers and leaves of the grass

Even somewhere strong wind is blowins
You won't feel it
You'll see how pain will leave you

Here at this island on the lake
Where pines and warm evening light
Here at this island on the lake
Which will hide us from all world' troubles and fight

let put down the fire
let listen together
How birds will sing us about Spring!

Let other music
Would not distract us
Lets listen to silence..

Here at this island on the lake
Where pines and warm evening light
Here at this island on the lake
Which will hide us from all world' troubles and fight

========================================================
7. My Mama told me -

My Mama told me - it is too complicated
My Mama told me - it is impossible
My Mama told me - it is dangerous
Mama don't try it in vain


My Mama told me - to forget you
My Mama told me - do not try to reach you
My Mama told me - that you are so different
Mama you don't know any thing

I sit on the roof I look on the sky
I don't belive to anybody I don't hear anybody
Mama told me that she is not happy
Mama is is all not true...

================================================
8. Russian Blues

I want to take a train and leave this city
Never again to hear your names
never again to see your indifferent eyes
Never again to hear your false words
But I have no ticket and train left already
And it is good for a moment from wine but then...

It is all again - streetlight, graffiti and broken door
Your room where are you hiding like injured animal...
Mould on the walls, smell factory outside your window
Crane where water ticking like metronome
It is all over, yesterday... and nothing else to wait for...
And everything you could sell is sold

Evereything is so boring and you need to break something
But when you'll try to break it - you have no power...
And when I fall asleep and again I see the same dream as before
That it is only my shadow left, and not me...
I can hear phone call - but nobody calls me
I received letters but inside just empty sheets of paper...

Train is leaving and they don't care about me
My last cigarette will burn out and it will be no light anymore
They will close the railroad crossing and guard will go to sleep
And somebody in the last train car will wave hand to me
OK, thanks for your sweet lies - I have a knife in my pocket
And I'm ready...
