Sing along to 'Mon Ami': Lyrics

Russian

Друг Мой
Весь мир поет
С музыкой и танцами
Мы объединяем все сердца
Предварительный припев:
Оглянись вокруг себя
Вся жизнь наполнена любовью
Давайте споем вместе ла-ла-ла
Далеко
На горизонте восходит солнце
До утра
Мы наполним мир музыкой солнца
Я – твоя память
Вы можете сохранить этот яркий и красочный момент
Счастье всего на мгновение
Но я могу улететь на его крыльях
Моя любовь
Стрелы лежат
Время остановится на часах
Пять минут
Они могут подождать
И чем будет продолжаться
Оглянись вокруг себя
Вся жизнь наполнена любовью
Давайте споем вместе ла-ла-ла
Иди ко мне
Тайна
Прислушайся к своему сердцу сегодня вечером
Давайте будем свободны
Друг Мой
Похоже на сказку
Следуйте за мной
Вы увидите
Сегодня ночью произойдет волшебство
Представьте себе это
Окончательно
Теперь нас никто не остановит
Мы можем слышать музыку так далеко
Потому что мы слушаем своей душой
Мгновение пройдет, но счастье останется
Дождь не может стереть наши чувства
Просто живи и люби
Иди ко мне
Тайна
Прислушайся к своему сердцу сегодня вечером
Давайте будем свободны
Друг Мой
Похоже на сказку
Следуйте за мной
Вы увидите
Сегодня ночью произойдет волшебство
Представьте себе это
Окончательно
Теперь нас никто не остановит

English translation

Mon Amie
The whole world is singing
With music and dances
We unite all the hearts
Look around you
All the life is filled with love
Let’s sing together la-la-la
Far away
On the horizon, the sun is rising
Till morning
We will fill the world with music of the sun
I’m your memory
You can save this bright and colourful moment
Happiness for just a moment
But I can fly away on its wings
Mon amour
The arrows are lying
Time will stop on the clock
Five minutes
They can wait
And than will keep going
Look around you
All the life is filled with love
Let’s sing together la-la-la
Come to me
Mystery
Listen to your heart tonight
Let’s be free
Mon Amie
Feels like a fairytale
Follow me
You will see
Magic will happen tonight
Imagine it
Finally
No one can stop us now
We can hear the music from so far away
Because we are listening with ours soul
The moment will pass, but the happiness will remain
The rain cannot erase our feelings
Just live and love
Come to me
Mystery
Listen to your heart tonight
Let’s be free
Mon Amie
Feels like a fairytale
Follow me
You will see
Magic will happen tonight
Imagine it
Finally
No one can stop us now
