You were born in '67
About 9 o'clock at night
A couple years before I lost control
and ended up inside.

The clouds in
Camarillo
Shimmer with a light that's
So unreal
Now I fear the stories
That they told me
Of how I hurt my baby
Must be somehow true

I stopped taking all my pills
they made me feel so dead inside.
Just like the sun was going out
I didn't think I сould survive

The clouds in
Camarillo
Shimmer with a light that's
So unreal
Now I fear the stories
That they told me
Of how I hurt my baby
Must be somehow true

Now I'm writing from a caravan
behind your nana's place
I think my spirit will be happier
with the stars in outer space.

The clouds in
Camarillo
Shimmer with a light that's
So unreal
Now I fear the stories
That they told me
Of how I hurt my baby
Must be somehow true

    General CommentBut there is the other part, the russian part:

    Nam tak svetlo. Vecher. May.
    Po vode tancuem.
    (Light for us. Evening. May.
    Dancing on the water.)

    A couple years before I lost control
    And ended up inside.

    Kto nas uznal? Ugaday.
    Mi ego risuem.
    Ya dlya tebya stanu zdes'
    Samoy zvonkoy liroy.
    Poy, pust' slova uletyat
    Na vershinu mira. ( On the top of the mountain
    (Who will give us recognition? Guess who.
    We draw it.
    I'll become here for you
    The most sonorous lyre.
    Sing, let words fly
    On the Camarillo)

    /chorus/
    The clouds in
    Camarillo
    (Na vershinu mira =On the top of the mountain)
    Shimmer with a light that's
    So unreal
    (Na vershinu mira)
    Now I fear the stories
    That they told me
    (Na vershinu mira)
    Of how I hurt my baby
    Must be somehow true

    I stopped taking all my pills
    They made me feel so dead inside.

    Vremya bezit i nikto
    U nego ne sprosit
    (Time is running and no one
    Will ask him.)

    Just like the sun was going out
    I didn't think I ñould survive

    Znaet ob etom lish on.
    On tebya poprosit
    Spet' emu neskolko slov
    Starogo motiva.
    I te slova uletyat
    Na vershinu mira.
    (This know only he.
    He will ask for you
    To sing some words
    Of the old motive.
    And this words will fly
    To the Camarillo.)

    /chorus/

    Now I'm writing from a caravan
    Behind your nana's place

    Solnce igraet s ognem,
    Mi igraem s vetrom
    (Sun play with fire,
    We play with wind.)

    I think my spirit will be happier
    With the stars in outer space.

    Nam tak svetlo mi vdvoem,
    Vmeste stanem peplom.
    I kogda solnce zashlo,
    Kak ze ti prosila
    Vzyat za soboyu tebya
    Na vershinu mira.
    (Light for us, we together,
    Will be ashes.
    And when sun come down,
    You ask me
    Take me to
    the Camarillo)

    Song MeaningThe song goes from the point of view of a woman, and "baby" is an actual baby, her son. The song writer, David Arthur Brown, wrote it about his mother who spent some time in the in Camarillo State mental hospital.

    General Comment... I think it's pretty obvious what it's about.
    He killed his wife/girlfriend and he's... in a mental hospital, probably.
    Finally realizes it's true, that he's killed her, and decides to kill himself.

    J'adore the version of this with Minerva. <3
