Russian Romance from a Russian Movie

” The Admiral ”

by Elene Vaenga

Russian song ” Everything is for you” by Stas Michailov

Everything is for you

In my fate only you are

The one love and pain of mine

We have met with you

My dear woman

Maybe it’s joy maybe it’s trouble

But you should know that I love only you

Everything is for you

Dawns and fogs

For you are seas and oceans

For you are fields of flowers

For you

Only for you stars shine in the sky

For you our crazy world was made

For you even I live under sun

For you

Only for you even I live under sun

For you

Playing with waves of fate

We swim like two white ships

Heaven of sails will send us

Hopes, happiness and love

We want find our island

In ocean of dream

Here’s part one of a very nice Russian movie. The Russian spoken is quite clear and the subtitles match quite closely so it’s excellent for training your ear if you’re trying to learn Russian. The scenery of the Crimea is also spectacular and nice music too. Enjoy!! We’ve edited the subtitles to get an exact match. For English subtitles, click on Wolof in the captions. We did that so the Russian subtitles would appear by default. 😉
