lyrics

When you were young did you dream you visited stars
On a boat made of pockets of light?
I had dreams too here in the USSR
Ever since Uri took to the sky.

But they all often told that I was not free.
Leave space to Americans?
Leaves nothing for me...nothing for me.

Mama told me, 'Child, things are what they are.
Give your father a hand with his carpentry.'
So I made my name as a carpenter's son
And my arm became strong working with trees.

Iron wall all around me meant I could not see.
But I looked up to the star-light,
And the Moon set me free, Moon set me free!

Yellow Star! Lunar Light!
Let me praise you on my knees!
Let me bathe in your Glory!
Red Sun keep shining free!

Conscience led me down through a valley of souls
To the grove where I started my ark.
If she flew I knew I'd follow my heart
To the Moon in my mind and to Mars.

Church walls in the darkness
Were nothing to me!
I took off through the star-light,
And the Moon set me free, Moon let me breathe...

Yellow Star! Lunar Light!
Let me praise you on my knees!
Let me bathe in your Glory!
Red Sun keep shining free!

Yellow Star! Lunar Light!
Let me praise you on my knees!
Let me bathe in your Glory!
Red Sun keep shining free!
