Sergei Rachmaninov (1873 - 1943)
Oh, do not grieve Op.14 No.8
Text by Aleksei Nikolayevich Apukhtin (1841-1893)
Song text translation:
Do not believe me, my friend, when, tormented by grief,v
I tell you that I no longer love you,
Do not believe the sea receding at low tide.
It always flows lovingly back to the ocean.
For I long for you, full of yesterday's passions
My freedom I give to you again.
And the waves from afar noisily return
To the shore they love.
