I Do Not Love You!

I do not love you
And do love you...
Idolize and curse you,
Can`t escape seeing you,
But do escape meeting you,
You`re so brave and so shy,
You`re so base and so high,
You`re so Earthly
And so Heavenly,
You`re so near
And so far...
You`re a sweet poison...
You`re bitter honey...
You`re true deity...
You`re a real devil!
Searching for you
I run away from you!
I do not love you!
And do love you!

I do not love you!
And do love you!

You`ve got an angelic face!
Oh, no! Rather an ugly mask!
You`re black-and-white!
No, you`re coloured!
You`re so coarse!
You`re full of caress!
You`re covered with soft satin,
No way, rather with pitiful rags!
I can never fight down
The wish to know you
And never know you!

You`re a sweet poison...
You`re bitter honey...
You`re true deity...
Yuo`re a real devil!
Searching for you
I run away from you!
I do not love you
And do love you!

I do not love you!
And do love...
YOU! ! !

Translated from Russian. Avraam Russo 'Ya Ne Lyublyu Vas'
