Face To Face


Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart have released a song in support of Ukraine, which features Russian musician Boris Grebenshchikov and Ukrainian counterpart Serhii Babkin.

"I wanted to write a gentle, peaceful song after seeing all the horrible images coming out of Ukraine," Stewart said in a statement. "The song is about how all war is horrific and it's written from the perspective of a young 18-year-old having to march off to war, not really understanding what he's getting into."

[David A. Stewart]
I'll say goodbye to you Mother
I hope one day that I'll come back home
Father, please don't watch me go
I'm old enough to know
I walk along the street I love
The street we played in as friends before
This time it seems the street not the same
As we make our way to war

[Борис Гребенщиков]
От января до первой листвы
Шагать как петь
Но мёртвый сердцем нажал курок
И вместо весны стала смерть
Наступит день и война станет сном
И в небе вновь будет свет
Но только там, где был мой дом
Его больше нет

[Сергій Бабкін]
Заплющені очі
Відновлюють неба блакить
Тиша, як спогад
Крихкий опір душі
Нарешті буде той ранок
Життя прокинеться
В одну і ту ж саму мить
І хтось прошепоче
Йдемо до дому мерщій

[Сергій Бабкін]
Промоклі до нитки серця
Впадають в бездонне Дніпро
Пам'ять буде по малому вмирати
Ковтаючи сонця тепло
Простягнуті руки й обличчя
Оживлять розбите скло
І неможливо буде не почути
Цей переможний клич

[Сергій Бабкін]
Віч на Віч
Віч на Віч
Віч на Віч
Віч на Віч
Віч на Віч
Віч на Віч

[Сергій Бабкін]
Відстань кидає зброю
І падає горілиць
Світ уже ніколи не буде таким
Як був до тепер
Вода знов відійде
І залишелише лише купу дрібниць
І набудуть нового життя
Навіть всі ті, хто помер

FACE TO FACE

[Dave Stewart, with vocals by Stevie Nicks, in English]
I'll say goodbye to you, Mother
I hope one day that I'll come back home
Father please don't watch me go
'Cause I'm old enough to know
I'll walk along the street I love
The street we played in as friends before
This time it seems the street's not the same
As we make our way to war

[Boris Grebenshchikov, in Russian]
From January to the first leaves
To stride is like to sing
But the one whose heart is dead pulled the trigger
And instead of Spring came death
The day will arrive, and the war will become a dream
And in the sky the light will return
But it is just where my home once was
It's no longer there

[Serhii Babkin, in Ukrainian]
Closed eyes bring back the azure of the sky
The quiet is like memory of the soul's fragile opposition
Finally that morning will arrive
The lives will awaken together in the same moment
And someone will whisper, let's go home quickly

Hearts soaked to their core fall into the bottomless Dnieper
The memory will be gradually dying, absorbing the warmth of the sun
The outstretched arms of the faces will revive the broken glass
And it will be impossible not to hear this victory cry:

[Chorus, with Stevie Nicks]
Face to face [repeated]

The distance drops its weapons and falls on its back
The world will no longer be how it was before
The water will again retreat and will leave behind just a pile of trifles
And even all the dead will gain new life
