[Trans-siberian]

Ten thousand kilometers daily
the Trans-Siberian Express
travels
to go from Moscow to Vladivostok, in Siberia.
We inhabit the same city and
every day our paths meet on the street
but our encounter is colder than
a chilly Siberian night
and no one has yet
built
the Trans-Siberian that leads to you.

[Transsiberisch]

Tienduizend kilometer per dag
rijdt
de Transsiberië Express
van Moskou naar Vladivostok, in Siberië.
Wij wonen in dezelfde stad en
kruisen elkaar elke dag op straat
maar onze ontmoeting is kouder dan
een koude Siberische nacht
en nog niemand
bouwt
de Transsiberische lijn van mij naar jou.

Transiberiano

Diariamente diez mil kilómetros
recorre
el tren transiberiano
para llegar de Moscú a Vladivostok, en Siberia.
Nosotros habitamos la misma ciudad y
todos los días nos cruzamos por la calle
pero nuestro encuentro es más frío que
una noche fría de Siberia
y nadie todavía
construye
el transiberiano que me lleve a ti.
