Russia: The Town of Nowhere! (Город Которого Нет)

Hello,

Today we’ll enjoy a beautiful song from Russian Series “Gangster Petersburg” (Бандитский Петербург), 2001. Igor Korneluk is author and singer. “The Town of Nowhere”(Город Которого Нет) is name of this song. Very beautiful video and English subtitles go along to this song. We love this song! Do you?



The Town of Nowhere

Night or total calm, having plunged for good,
Everlasting rain or eternal snow,
All the same, I am warmed by a limitless hope,
That far off, there’s a town, the Town of Nowhere.
There, a weary tramp will easily find share,
There, you are remembered and eagerly cared,
Day by day, confusing and loosing the trail,
I will plod to that town, the Town of Nowhere.

Refrain:
Burning for me, there is a hearth –
Of long gone truths an eternal sigil.
There’s but one step, one painful last,
But this one, last, lasts longer than living.

Who can tell me what Fortune keeps in store?
That we may not be given to know,
If beyond the verge of all squandered years,
I will finally see the Town of Nowhere.

Refrain:
Burning for me, there is a hearth –
Of long gone truths an eternal sigil.
There’s but one step, one painful last,
But this one, last, lasts longer than living.

comments always welcome.
