Sonya & Natasha lyrics
Sonya & Natasha
How was it I noticed nothing?
How could it go so far?
It can't be that she loves him
It can't be
(Natasha awakes and sees Sonya)
Sonya, you're back
And with the tender resolve that often comes at the moment of awakening
I embraced my friend
But noticing Sonya's look of embarrassment
My face expressed confusion
Sonya, you've read the letter?
Oh Sonya, I'm glad,
I can't hide it any longer!
Now you know, we love one another!
Oh Sonya, he writes, he writes
He writes, he writes, he writes
Oh Sonya, if you only knew how happy I am!
You don't know what love is
But Natasha, can that all be over?
I do not grasp the question
Are you refusing Prince Andrey?
Oh, you don't understand anything!
Don't talk nonsense, just listen
But I can't believe it, I don't understand
How you loved one man a whole year
And suddenly -
You've only known him three days!
Natasha, you're joking!
It seems to me I've loved him a hundred years
It seems to me that I've never loved anyone before
Sonya, wait a bit, sit here
I had heard that it happens like this
And you must have heard it too
But it's only now
That I feel such love
It's not the same as before
He's my master and I am his slave
What can I do?
Sonya, what can I do?
I'm so happy
And so frightened
Why can't you understand?
I love him!
Then I won't let it come to that, I shall tell!
Bursting into tears
What do you mean?
For God's sake, if you tell, you are my enemy!
You want me to be miserable
You want to tear us apart
For God's sake, Sonya, don't tell anyone, don't torture me
I have confided in you
What has happened between you?
What has he said to you?
Why doesn't he come to the house and openly ask for you hand?
Why this secrecy?
Have you thought what his secret reasons may be?
I don't know what the reasons are
But there must be reasons!
Sonya, one can't doubt him!
One can't, one can't! Don't you understand?
Does he love you?
Does he love me?
Why, you've read his letter, you've seen him
I can't live without him
Natasha, think of our family
And think of Prince Andrey
Andrey said I was free to refuse him
But you haven't refused him, or have you?
Perhaps I have
Perhaps all is over between me and Bolkonsky
Would you think so badly of me?
I won't succumb to your tender tone Natasha
I don't trust him, Natasha!
I'm afraid for you, Natasha!
Afraid you are going to your ruin
Then I'll go to my ruin, yes I will, as soon as possible!
But it's not your business!
It won't be you, it'll be me, who'll suffer
Leave me alone, yes leave me alone!
I hate you Sonya!
I hate you Sonya!
I hate you, I hate you!
You're my enemy forever!
I burst into sobs
(Natasha runs out of the room)
And without a moment's reflection
I wrote the answer to Princess Mary
I'd been unable to write all morning
All our misunderstandings are at an end
Forget everything and forgive me
But I can't be Andrey's wife
