    Я эту жизнь тебе отдам - Filip Kirkorov

    Here is a quick translation.
    Yeah, I know it's блин, but I have been listening to the radio for an hour and this is the only song that had more than 10 different words in it.
    Feel free to slam me if you find any errors.

    Я эту жизнь тебе отдам
    I will give my life to you

    Ты обещала мне любовь на веки
    Я видел наяву мечты свои
    И к огненным морям текли все реки
    И не было другой такой любви
    Но жаркая твоя душа остыла
    И каждый миг сильней тебя любя
    Я видел, наш огонь теряет силу
    А мне не жить на свете без тебя
    Мне без тебя

    You promised me love forever
    I saw my dreams in reality
    And all the rivers flowed to the fiery seas
    And there was no other love so great
    But your hot soul has cooled down
    And each instant your love grew stronger
    I saw, our fire lose force
    And I cannot live in this world without you
    Me without you

    Refrain:
    Я эту жизнь тебе отдам
    Всю по каплям, по годам
    В этом мире мне не жить без тебя
    Я вновь смотрю в твои глаза
    Я молю, вернись назад
    В этом мире ты одна мне нужна
    Лишь ты одна, лишь ты одна

    Refrain:
    I will give my life to you
    All along the teardrops, along the years
    I cannot live in this world without you
    I look in your eyes again
    I pray that you come back
    You are the one I need in this world
    You are the only one, you are the only one

    Но у души нельзя отнять надежду
    И пламени у сердца не отнять
    И верю я, всё будет так, как прежде
    Ты всё на этом свете для меня
    Всё для меня

    But it is impossible to take away the hope from my soul
    Or the flame from my heart
    And I believe, everything will be like it was before
    You are everything in the world to me
    Everything to me

    Refrain:
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I think this is better translated as

    And I am not alive in a world without you
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    I wonder what English word you had in mind for "блин"? It doesn't quite fit into the sentence the way you used it.. and I know it's not "pancake"

    I may have incorrectly used the word блин. I thought I was a mild expletive like "darn" or "damn".

    Anyway, back to the song. I am still having problems with the sentence
    А мне не жить на свете без тебя

    I think the meaning is something like "I cannot live in this world without you" but why does it say "А мне не жить" instead of "я не могу жить"?

    What's the deal with Filipp K anyway? He is serious? Wasn't he married to that Pugacheva woman. We know who had the bigger dick in that marriage.

    You're right! Kirkorov was married to Pugacheva! They, however, divorced a few months ago.

    You got the meaning perfectly correct.
    Мне не жить = я не могу жить, just a little more poetic. "А" in the beginning is sort of "but"...

    No, it wouldn't The best way to put that sentence into Russian is:
    Я говорю по-русски не очень хорошо, но я стараюсь.

    Then why did you say: "Yeah, I know it's блин"? I would of expected дермо, or something. but "I know it's damn" just doesn't sound right...

    What I meant was "Yeah, I know it's cr@p".

    I should have used dermo instead.

    Here is my rendition.

    You promised me love for eternity
    I saw all my dreams become reality
    And all rivers flowed to the firey sea
    And never such a love there was to be
    And my love for you always strengthening
    But your passionate soul started freezing
    I saw our buring flame begin to subdue
    I cannot live without you.
    Not without you.

    I will give all my life to you
    Through all the years and all the tears
    I cannot live in this world without you
    I again look in your eyes and see
    I pray that you return has begun
    You are the only one in this world for me
    You are the only one, you are the only one.


    But my soul cannot be stolen
    And the flame in my heart cannot be broken
    and all will be as before I see
    You are everything in the world to me
    Everything to me
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.
