Speaking In Tongues
Scribbling In Voices

Boris Grebenshikov

On that side of the looking glass

Translated by Andrey Kneller

The final rain is like no rain at all
It can't prevent our time of rest
And if we start believing in tomorrow
It will turn out to be the best
If only this night would still go on
My house feels no longer like my home
Just look how easy they are living
On that side of the mirror on the wall
I remember myself as kid reading verses
Hoping that the night would never end
Holding back the ticking hands of clocks
As blood was dripping from my hand
It seems that all of this is just a game
On that side of the looking glass
Out here it's morning and we are at no loss
Today is just like yesterday to us
