    Музыка нас связала

    Can anyone check if I made any errors please?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Позабудь об этом дне
    Спор не нужен никому
    Не читай нотаций мне
    Мама, это ни к чему

    Forget of this day
    Controversy does not need anything
    Do not write notes to me
    Mama, this is not so

    Снова к друзьям я своим убегаю
    Что меня тянет сюда я не знаю
    Без музыки мне оставаться надолго нельзя

    Again with friends I escape from myself
    What pulls me here, I do not know
    Without music it is impossible for me to remain long.

    Музыка нас связала
    Тайною нашей стала
    Всем уговорам твержу я в ответ
    Нас не разлучат, нет

    Music has connected us
    Secretly became ours
    To all persuasions I repeat in the answer
    It will not separate us, no.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Forget this day,
    Nobody needs a quarrel.
    Don't lecture me,
    Mama, it's useless.

    kwatts59, don't translate songs word-to-word, try to do whole sentences at once.

    Is it "Мираж"? Ah, молодость .

    Again I'm running away to my friends.
    I don't know, what attracts me here.
    I can't stay long without music.

    They won't be able to separate us (i.e. me and music), no.

    It is "Мираж"!!!
    They are my new favorite group.

    Thank you very much for your help. I am trying my best, but the word ordering in Russian is killing me.

    Is there any difference between these two sentences?
    Снова к друзьям я своим убегаю
    Снова я убегаю к своим друзьям
    Again I am runnig away to my friends.

    No difference in meaning.
    But the first is in "poetic order". The second is normal.

    Also possible:

    Снова убегаю я к своим друзьям
    Я снова убегаю к своим друзьям
    К своим друзьям я снова убегаю
    etc
    etc

    I'd say there is a difference in emphasis.
    1) 'Снова' - emphasis on repeated action
    2) normal word order
    3) 'К своим друзьям' emphasis on direction, to my friends but not somewhere else, e.g. to my parents, to my work etc.

    There is often unsusual word order in songs and poetry to achieve a rhyme.

    No matter who trys to dissuade me, I say
    No, you can't separate me and music!

    (not sure whether I'm "guest" or "chaika" this time.)
