Втомлене місто хоче спочити
І люди сідають у теплі трамваї,
Щоб їхати далі.

У затишку вулиць поволі зникають
Останні розмови, сумні перехожі,
Усі такі схожі,
Але тільки не ти…

Не залишайся вдома сама,
Відкривай навстіж вікна!
І нехай тебе п’ють до дна,
Ти завжди повна світла! (2)

У затишку вулиць
Самотнє дитинство
Тебе проводжає із сумом
У вікнах знайомих будинках.

А втомлене місто
Зігріє в обіймах
І хто зрозуміє, повернеться
Згодом у двері за рогом,
Але тільки не ти…

Приспів (2)

A tired city wants to have rest
And people take warm trams,
To go further.

In the coziness of the streets disappear slowly
Recent conversations, sad passersby
Everyone is so similar,
But only not you…

Don’t stay at home alone, |
Open your windows wide! |
Even if they drink you to the bottom, |
You are always full of light! | (2)

In the coziness of the streets
The lonely childhood
Takes you home with sadness
In the windows of familiar homes.

A tired city
Will warm up in hugs
The one who understands will come back
Later through doors behind the corner,
But only not you…

Chorus. (2)
