Default Metro

Every now and then I read AP's tweets. This one, on 9/29/ made me pause:


Just found out there's a song about me by Russian group Vysokosmoy god. Called "metro"

So I looked up the lyrics.

Metro

It flies away slowly into the melting blind emptiness
Faces flash, with thin fingers the rays hit the glass of the closed windows
And they were together, may we be here, and may it simply be so
in my palms the past drowns, you know we have already been lonely for so long

Stay with me...
Let's go back...
I run through the faceless city
In the lights of the underground rings
And trains fly through the land
From nowhere to nowhere... to nowhere...

You are my dream!
I am just a shadow!
I am your dream!
You are just a shadow!

I don't know who you are, how far you are and where you're waiting for me,
I promise, I won't be late, you see, the road to nowhere is just eternity[?]
I close my eyes - beside you but for a moment and then you're not there
and past the dark howl wave[?] wires weave
the road to infinity

Dispel my pain...
Look me in the eyes...

I run through the faceless city
In the fires of the underground rings
And trains fly through the land
From nowhere to nowhere... to nowhere...

You are my dream!
I am just a shadow!
I am your dream!
You are just a shadow!

Stay with me
Let's go back
Dispel my pain
Look me in the eyes
and deep in there, right at the bottom,
you'll see that I burned down to the ground...

Along the tunnels and the night platforms
Along the crossings and empty carriages
I slip like a shadow into the edge of the world
I call you, but again there is no answer...

If I understand the tweets aright, AP had been on the road for over a month. Yes, that might make a body feel melancholic. Poetic.

Oh, I suppose the song is about being a forlorn youth looking for true love, but it certainly works if you've been traveling from one city to the next, one hotel room to the next, missing your loved ones and suffering from jet lag. Been there! and, boy, in those circs, a second glass of wine over a late dinner and a sad song can wipe you right out!

That post did make me feel like I was eavesdropping, though.

Well, I suppose we have all run across a song or two in our lives that we felt was written just about/for us.

Did you see his Mum fell and broke her hip the day after he left? Not good at her age

Ow! Poor lady! I missed that post. No wonder AP feels like the song lyrics fit.

How old od you suppose she is?

Cool

Judging by my mom's age & when she had me, I'd say close to 80 easy, mid-70's earliest.

Maybe we should be sending that to some House Congressional Members!

From what I remember she was in her mid 30's when she had Adrian. As he is 54 now she must be her late 80's. Not good at all

Hi! There is a song by russian groupVysokosmoy god, "metro", where is a line about Adrian Paul.
Here the words

Наша с ней основная задача - незастуканными быть на месте
Явки, пароли, чужие дачи и дома надо быть в десять
Она прячет улыбку и слезы, она редко мне смотрит в глаза
Мы спешим разными дорогами на один вокзал

В тайниках ледяного сердца спрятан очень большой секрет
Как одна короткая встреча затянулась на несколько лет
Среди сотни общих знакомых и десятка фальшивых друзей
Она делает вид, что смеется, я стараюсь не думать о ней

Мы могли бы служить в разведке
Мы могли бы играть в кино
Мы, как птицы, садимся на разные ветки
И засыпаем в метро

Это мы придумали Windows, это мы объявили дефолт
Нам играли живые Beatles , не стареющий Эдриан Пол ( Adrian Paul)
Наши матери в шлемах и латах бьются в кровь о железную сталь
Наши дети ругаются матом, нас самих почти не осталось

А мы могли бы служить в разведке
Мы могли бы играть в кино
Мы, как птицы, садимся на разные ветки
И засыпаем в метро

От Алтуфьева до Пражской лишь на первый взгляд далеко
Мы везем московскую тайну по секретным веткам метро
Не найдя подходящего слова и не зная других аккордов
Мы потеряем друг друга снова в бесконечности переходов

Мы могли бы служить в разведке
Мы могли бы играть в кино
Мы, как птицы, садимся на разные ветки
Мы засыпаем в метро

А мы могли бы служить в разведке
Мы могли бы играть в кино
Мы, как птицы, садимся на разные ветки
И засыпаем в метро

Spaciba, Alisa, and welcome to APUK. It looks like I had the wrong song, then. Given the reference, though, if I were AP I'm not sure that that song would have made me feel very cheerful, either.

Our with her main task is незастуканными be in place
The turnout of voters, passwords, other people's houses and the house must be in ten
She hid a smile and tears, she rarely me looking in your eyes
We are different roads at one station

In the recesses of the ice of the heart hid a very big secret
As one short meeting lasted for a few years
Among the hundreds of common acquaintances, and a dozen of fake friends
She pretends that laughs, I try not to think about it

We could serve in the intelligence
We could play in the movie
We, as a bird, get on the different branches
And fall asleep on the subway

This we came up with Windows, that we defaulted
We played live Beatles and aging Adrian Paul
Our mother in helmets and armor struggling in the blood of the iron steel
Our children cursing obscenities, ourselves almost does not remain

And we could serve in the intelligence
We could play in the movie
We, as a bird, get on the different branches
And fall asleep on the subway

From Antufyev to Prague only at first glance far
We're bringing the Moscow mystery of the secret branches metro
Not finding the right words and not knowing the other chords
We lose each other again in the infinity of transitions

We could to serve in the intelligence
We could play in the movie
We, as a bird, get on the different branches
We sleep in the subway

And we could serve in the intelligence
We could play in the movie
We, as a bird, get on the different branches
And fall asleep on the subway
