Sting - And Yet Lyrics




This town, this stain on the sunrise,
Disguised in the mist this morning,
It's 8AM, a seagull shouts a sailor's warning.

This sky, this bend in the river,
Slows down and delivers me, the tide rolls back,
And all my memories fade to black,

And yet, and yet...I'm back.

This town has a strange magnetic pull,
Like a homing signal in your skull,
And you sail by the stars of the hemisphere,
Wondering how in the Hell did ye end up here?
It's like an underground river, or a hidden stream,
That flows through your head, and haunts your dreams,
And you stuffed those dreams in this canvas sack,
And there's nothing round here that the wide world lacks,

And yet, and yet...You're back.

Some nights I'd lie on the deck and I'd stare at the turning of the stars,
Those constellations hanging up there from the cables and the rigging,
I'd wonder if she saw the same, or managed to recall my name,
But why would she ever think of me? Some boy she loved who fled to sea?
And why waste time debating whether she'd be waiting for the likes of me?

So ye drift into port with the scum of the seas,
To the dance halls and the brothels where you took your ease!
And the ship's left the dock but you're half past caring,
And ye haven't got a clue whose bed you're sharing.
And your head's like a hammer on a bulkhead door,
And it feels like somebody might have broken your jaw,
And there's bloodstains and glass all over the floor,
And ye swear to God ye'll drink no more,
And yet, and yet.

In truth, it's too late to find her,
Too late to remind her at some garden gate,
Where a servant tells me I should wait,
And perhaps a door's slammed in my face,
My head must be in outer space,
And yet, and yet,
Before the sun has set,
Before the sea,
There may be something else that's waiting for,
The likes of me.

This town, this stain on the sunrise...

    awesome tunes!

  12. bosl u

    whenever listening this music, i feel like reading sting's autobiography

  13. Dave Harris

    Doommaster1994: I see it as the description of his hometown, which he did not like much and left as soon as he was able (a boy who fled to sea). Now he's back for a visit and is going through all the reasons why he should never have returned, yet something pulled him home again. It's the age old story -- we all want secretly to return home, but as most people know, you can't ever truly go home again.

    excellent job

  14. Lord Matias47

    my fother is Sting's friend. My fother is a mussician and he sings Sting's songs. I don't now if my fother has singed that Song. That's my favourite Song of Sting's album.

    And Yet (оригинал Sting)

    И всё же (перевод XergeN)

    This town, this stain on the sunrise
    Этот город - пятно на горизонте,
    Disguised in the mist, this morning.
    Одетый в туман этим утром.
    It's 8 AM, a seagull shouts
    8 часов утра, в небе кричат чайки.
    A sailor's warning, this sky.
    Это небо - предупреждение для матросов...


    This bend in the river
    Река на изгибе
    Slows down and delivers me
    Замедляется и доставляет меня на место.
    The tide rolls back
    Волны откатывают,
    And all my memories fade to black.
    И все мои воспоминания угасают.


    And yet,
    И всё же,
    And yet...
    И всё же...
    I'm back
    Я вернулся.


    This town has a strange magnetic pull
    Этот город подозрительно притягивает к себе,
    Like a homing signal in your skull
    Словно сигнал самонаведения в твоём черепе.
    And you sail by the stars of the hemisphere
    И ты плывёшь по звёздам полушария,
    Wondering how in the hell did you end up here?
    Размышляя, как, чёрт возьми, оказался здесь?


    It's like an underground river or a hidden stream
    Это словно подземная река или скрытый поток,
    That flows through your head and haunts your dream
    Текущий по твоей голове и обитающий в твоих снах.
    And you stuffed those dreams in this canvas sack
    И ты запихиваешь эти сны в холщовый мешок,
    And there's nothing round here that the wide world lacks.
    И нет ничего такого, чего бы не было в этом мешке.


    And yet,
    И всё же,
    And yet...
    И всё же...
    You're back
    Ты вернулась.


    Some night I'd lie on the deck and I'd stare
    Однажды ночью я буду лежать на палубе и смотреть
    At the turning of the stars
    На движение звёзд.
    Those constellations hanging up there
    Эти созвездия висят
    From the cables and the rigging
    На тросах и такеляжах. 1


    I wonder if she saw the same or managed to recall my name
    И я думаю, видела ли она то же самое, или всё же смогла запомнить моё имя,
    Why would she ever think of me, some boy she loved who fled to sea?
    И почему она вообще думает обо мне, простом парне, которого она полюбила, но который сбежал в море?
    And why waste time debating
    И почему тратит время на рассуждения?
    Whether she'd be waiting for the likes of me?
    Станет ли она ждать такого, как я?


    So you drift into port with the scum of the seas
    Ты прибываешь в порт с ошмётками морской пены,
    To the dance halls and the brothels where you took your ease!
    Туда, где танцплощадок и борделей по самое "не хочу"!
    And the ship's left the dock, but you're half past caring
    Твоё судно отчаливает, но тебе уже почти всё равно,
    And you haven't got a clue whose bed you're sharing.
    И ты не имеешь ни малейшего понятия, в чьей кровати спишь.


    And your head's like a hammer on a bulkhead door
    Голова гудит с похмелья, 2
    And it feels like somebody might have broken your jaw
    Да ещё и, видимо, челюсть сломана.
    And there's bloodstains and glass all over the floor
    Кругом следы крови и битое стекло,
    And you swear to god ye'll drink no more.
    И ты клянёшься Богу, что никогда больше не будешь пить.


    And yet,
    И всё же,
    And yet...
    И всё же...
    In truth
    Честно говоря,
    It's too late to find her
    Уже слишком поздно искать её.


    Too late to remind her at some garden gate
    Слишком поздно напоминать ей о садовой калитке,
    Where a servant tells me I should wait
    Где слуга просит меня подождать
    And perhaps a door's slammed in my face
    И, скорее всего, хлопнет дверью перед самым лицом.
    My head must be in outer space.
    Мои мысли словно витают в открытом космосе.


    And yet,
    И всё же,
    And yet
    И всё же,
    Before the sun has set
    Пока солнце не село,
    Before the sea there may be something else
    На прибрежье может быть кто-то ещё,
    That's waiting for the likes of me.
    Ждущий такого, как я.

  19. Nella Crosiglia

  20. Doommaster1994

    Does anyone know what this song is about? It's my favorite song on the album (along with What Have We Got?) but this song puzzles me as far as its meaning. Thanks!

  52. Borys Jeleński

    This song is so... intense! And as someone already mentioned - jazzy in it's own manner. It's funny how it's both beautifully lyrical as a reminder of some kind of unfulfilled love and desperate - recalling coming back to a dirty and rough hometown.

  53. Moosetic

    Nothing but ONLY STING !!!!
