Norilsk people: Smell the summer at Norilsk

Norilsk people: Smell the summer at Norilsk

I can breathe and smell the summer in my beloved city of Norilsk, Russia.

People may believe that we don't have summer here, as the media portray Norilsk as a place very cold, full of snow and people with bad manners.

I can smell the flowers and feel that the world is opening to me, that is embracing me with its gentle hands.

I see people smiling and this is Siberia, my friends.

If you want us to smile here at Norilsk... just give us a little of summer.

Let your hair down and put on your party dress
Let’s live our favorite story with no second guess
Told me it’s all easier when you do what you’re told
Borrow my leg to stand on, let’s get out of control

Give me my daily dose of your coquetry
Yeah, I’ve put some thought into poetry
A summer’s eve shall I compare to thee?
Or is it not to be?

[Chorus: Early Hours]
Oh, it smells like summer
It smells like summer
It feels like letting go
Oh, it smells like summer
Your smile’s like summer
I think we ought to let him know
We won’t be waiting for the weekend
We’re waiting on the sun
We don’t need anyone’s permission
To have a little bit of fun

[Verse 2: Early Hours]
Good stories always come from bad ideas
And yesterday was boring so let’s end in tears
Time waits for no man
So we won’t wait for time
This isn’t going to end well but it started out fine
Here’s an ideal: sleep when you’re dead
Come over here, sleep with me instead
Let’s get it started, it is getting late
This won’t end well, but the middle is great

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Oh, it smells like summer
It smells like summer
It feels like letting go
Oh, it smells like summer
Your smile’s like summer
I think we ought to let him know
We won’t be waiting for the weekend
We won’t be waiting on the sun
We don’t need anyone’s permission
To have a little bit of fun
— Early hours
