Lyrics

Game Size

Listen! I can hear,
Carried with the wind,
He's playing, sweet sound of Balalaika

They say "It can't be
Just fantasy
He will never come back again"

I'm waiting for him, because
He said "Oh Natasha, my darling
I'll love you forever, I swear
Wait till I come back to you"

Listen! Can't you hear?
Carried with the wind,
He came back playing Balalaika

Japanese Translation


ほら、聴こえるわ 風に乗つて
彼の弾くやさしいバラライカの音色が
みんなは言うの「まさか。空耳だよ。
彼はもう戻らないさ」って
でも私は待つてるわ だって 彼は言ったもの
「かわいいナターシャ、装うよ。永遠に愛している。
どうか僕の帰りを待つていておくれ」って
ねえ、聴こえるでしよう、風に乗つて
彼がパラライカを弾きながら帰つてきたのよ・・・・

Long Version


Listen! I can here
Carried with the wind
He's playing, sweet sound of Balalaika

They say "It can't be
Just fantasy
He will never come back again"

I'm waiting for him, because
He said "Oh Natasha, my darling
I'll love you forever, I swear
Wait till I come back to you"

Listen! Can't you hear?
Carried with the wind,
He came back playing Balalaika

Many nights went by
I cried over him
They said "he'll never come back again"

But he's come back
He is back to me
Tell the world he has come home

I've waited for him because he said
"Oh Natasha, my darling
I love you forever I swear
Wait till I come back to you"

They say "It can't be
Just fantasy
He will never come back again"

I'm waiting for him, because
He said "Oh Natasha, my darling
I'll love you forever, I swear
Wait till I come back to you"

Listen! Can't you hear?
Carried with the wind
He's come back playing Balalaika

How about a Russian-style Cossack dance? The balalaika sound is also nice.

(See Lyrics section)

Julie's singing voice is so sorrowful, that you'd be surprised by this Russian-like song.

Musician's Room 3

The balalaika is a traditional Russian string instrument with a triangular-shaped body. The tremolo technqiue is a typical of this instrument, and it has a beautiful, melancholic tone. For this song, in order to express a melancholic Russian atmosphere, I changed it with mandolin and acoustic guitar, which have similar tones.
