Russkaya Zima (Ne Mogu Tebya Lyubit)

Esho ne zanyalsya rassvet
Esho ne pozdno pozabit
Ti nenavidel slovo net
Ya ne mogu tebya lyubit

Lyubov kholodnaya reka
Vospominanya na snegu
Maneesh menya izdaleka
Tebya lyubit ya ne mogu

Bessmislenniy vitok sud'bi
Smog dveri smerti priotkrit
Mne v zhizni nuzhen tolko ti
Ya ne mogu tebya lyubit

Russian Winter (Cannot Love You)

The dawn hasn't yet come
It's not too late to forget
You hated the word "no"
I cannot love you

Love is a cold river
Memories in the snow
You are calling me from afar
I cannot love you

A meaningless twist of fate
Was able to crack open death's doors
You are the only one I need in life
I cannot love you

Nice easy-feeling shuffle rhythm. Perfect length for the intro, doesn't keep you waiting for the main theme. I like the guitar hook that repeats around the vocal during the verses. Then after the key change, a really nice 8-bar section with those long vocal notes and vocal harmonising. I love the vocal style in this song, breathy and smooth with a mysterious feel. Good instrumental performances.
