Near a star called sun.
It was there that my mom came undone.
Sounds of a summer parade.
90.5 in the shade.

She drifted off on the Fourth of July,
A holiday look in her eyes.
Said goodbye to a lifetime of pain.
She died in a midsummer rain.

She said, "There's one million stars
For every little grain of sand down there."

She floated up, like a rocket in space.
The misery gone from her face.
Flying to the comets and stars.
Out past the canyons on Mars.

She saw the future and she saw the past.
She said, "Don't worry, it's not meant to last.
Everything's always okay.
Even the worst of your days.

There's one million stars
For every little grain of sand down there."


So, while she's there when I look at the sky.
Or when I drink whiskey or wine.
Or when I feel frightened at night.
Or days when I'm sick of my life.

She says, "Son, it'll all be all right.
Everything's already fine.
If only you knew what I've seen.
You'd never feel frightened again.

There's one million stars
For every little grain of sand down there."

    General CommentThis is a cover of famous russian singer Viktor Tsoi. David Brown heard his song and wanted to make a cover, but he was afraid, that lyrics will lost its charm in translation. So he wrote his own, and altered melody of the chorus. This version is great, and I love to listen it (as almost all the songs of this band), but I'd like to post here a rough translation, just for you to get an image of its original variant.

    White snow, grey ice
    On the cracked earth
    Like a patchwork blanket
    A city lies on it in a road loop
    And above the city the clouds float
    Covering the skylight
    And above the city there is yellow smoke
    The city has lived for two thousand years
    Under the light of the star
    Named Sun

    And two thousand years the war lasts
    A war without certain reasons
    The war is the issue of the young ones
    A medicine against wrinkles
    The red, red blood
    In an hour is only ground
    In two there are flowers and grass on it
    In three it is alive again
    And kept warm by the beams of the star
    Named Sun

    And we know it was always like that
    That the Fate loves more the ones
    Who live by other laws
    And who will die young
    He doesn't remember the words "yes" or "no"
    He doesn't remember neither ranks nor names
    And able to reach the stars
    As he considers it's not a dream
    And fall burnt by the star
    Named Sun
