Manizha released her new single “Люди Вернутся В Людей”, which means “People Will Return To Humans”. The song is composed by Manizha Sanghin herself. It may be short, but the meaning is so strong. The melody of the song reminds me of a lullaby and I have to admit that I have heard it on repeat since I found it! Below you can find the lyrics in English!
“I wrote the song back in the summer. Two days ago I decided to release it. Yuri Shevchuk told me the main line – the title. “One day people will return to people,” – so he said in an interview with Katerina Gordeeva (announced a foreign agent by the Ministry of Justice of Russia). And one day I really want to wait for this. We’ll wait for the rain. I believe.”Translated from Russian, Manizha through a Facebook post
Here are the lyrics translated, in order to understand better the meaning of the song!
I stand at the station and I wait every day
How will the train arrive and there will be those
Who watch with eyes clearer than the mirror
Damn, the train was late again
I stand there in the winter in the summer I stand
Like a student, who waits with excitement for the holidays
I wait at the station, when the day comes
And people will return to the humans
Country or not?
How many questions
I wait for my answer
I wait at the station for the answer
The people will return spreading their lightLyrics in English
Wide backs, wider than rockets
They say so carefully, while they looking me into the eyes,
That their homeland is planet Earth
