Still/The Neva Flows (Reprises) lyrics
Still/The Neva Flows (Reprises)Gleb:
My father shook his head told me not to ask
My mother said he died of shame
In me you see them, look at their faces in mine,
Hear their screams, imagine their terror, see their blood!
But I believe he did a proud and vital task
And in my father's name...
Do it and I will be with my parents and my brother
And sisters in that cellar in Ekaterinburg all over again
The children, their voices. A man makes painful choices
He does what's necessary, Anya!
For Russia, my beauty. What choice but simple duty?
We have the past to bury, Anya!
The Neva flows, a new wind blows
Gleb and ensemble:
And soon it will be spring. The leaves unfold, the Tsar lies cold!
Be careful what a dream may bring. A revolution is a simple thing!
