This is a cover of Trava u Doma (Green Grass at Home) from Zemlyane (Earthlings). I first heard the song as diegetic music in the Soviet teen movie Courier (1987). Courier (Курьер) on youtube
I found an English translation from youtube’s ksander182 in this video:
and adapted it a bit for lyricism.
Feel free to add space noises to this and drop me a line.
Verse 1: Earth is in the viewport, the Earth is in the viewport In the viewport, Earth is clearly seen Like a son misses his mother, like a son misses his mother We yearn for the one and only Earth And the stars above our heads, all the stars above our heads Are slightly closer but as always cold And like the night before the dawn, a total eclipse of the sun We wait for light, we dream about the Earth Chorus: We do not dream about the roaring spaceport Not this icy cold and bluish view We see instead the grass around our houses This vivid green, this vivid green living grass Verse 2: We're flying in our orbits, in murky hidden pathways through fields of asteroids in the beyond Our risk and valor not in vain, the cosmic music in our veins We feel it when we talk and when we work When night falls and the evening glows, fog wraps the globe within its arms And slowly lets go as it fades away The son misses his mother, the son misses his mother She waits for him and likewise does the Earth
