    Please help me with translate "Миллион алых роз" song.

    I’d like to do it understandable for foreigners.

    Thanks

    Миллион алых роз

    Жил был художник один,
    Домик имел и холсты,
    Но он актрису любил,
    Ту, что любила цветы.
    Он тогда продал свой дом
    Продал картины и кров
    И на все деньги купил
    Целое море цветов

    Припев (2 раза)
    Миллион, миллион алых роз
    Из окна, из окна
    Видишь ты
    Кто влюблен, кто влюблен, кто влюблен
    И всерьез, свою жизнь для тебя
    Превратит в цветы

    Утром ты встанешь у окна
    Может, сошла ты с ума?
    Как продолжение сна
    Площадь цветами полна.
    Похолодеет душа,
    Что за богач здесь чудит?
    А под окном чуть дыша
    Бедный художник стоит

    Припев (2 раза)

    Встреча была коротка.
    В ночь ее поезд увез.
    Но в ее жизни была
    Песня безумная роз.
    Прожил художник один.
    Много он бед перенес,
    Но в его жизни была
    Целая площадь цветов.

    Припев (4 раза)

    in English (please correct my mistakes)

    Million red roses

    Once upon a time lived any painter.
    He had a house and the paintings,
    But he loved an actress,
    Who liked the flowers.
    Then he sold everything.
    He sold own house and all his paintings,
    And he could buy from sale proceeds
    A huge sea of flowers

    Refrain (twice)
    Million, million red roses
    You are seeing them
    from the window, from the window.
    Who is being in love with you
    That can turn own life into flowers for you


    You‘ll come to the window tomorrow morning
    Have you lost one's mind, may be?
    Because you are seeing the square filled of flowers.
    Your soul will grow cold with terror.
    You’ll ask yourself
    What a rich man have been trying to be original?
    And in this moment that poor painter can hardly breathe and standing under your window

    Refrain (twice)

    Their meeting was short.
    After she was drove by night-train.
    But she had remembered
    Her life had reckless song of roses.
    The Painter’s life was along.
    He survived many misfortunes,
    But he had remembered
    His life had the square filled of flowers as a huge sea

    Refrain (4 times)
    Иногда потрясающие вещи находятся в неожиданных местах.
    Sometimes tremendous things are found in unexpected places
    Please, correct my mistakes

    Afterward she left by the night train.
    But she has often remembered
    Her life had a reckless song of roses.
    The Painter lived alone.
    He survived many misfortunes,
    But he always remembered
    His life had the square filled with flowers like a huge sea

    Yeah, it's useful for me too, thanks, but one more question: is it possible to use words "am, is, are, have, has etc" without pronouns?

    Yes, the "painter" is the subject. You can omit the pronoun "he" after the conjunction "and" because there is no confusion about who "is standing". However, you can also include "he". Both ways are correct.
    which sentence is correct: They are both fine. It's a matter of style.

    "I am sorry for the delay in replying, and hope ...."
    "I am sorry for the delay in replying, and I hope...."

    When can I omit the subject pronoun from the second sentence? Very generally speaking, when the sentence is sufficiently short and simple that the reader has not 'forgotten' the subject by the time he reads the second verb.
