Surrender to the King of Russian pop! Sergey Lazarev releases new single “Sdavaysya”

8

Ever since his televote-winning performance last year in Stockholm, Sergey Lazarev has not stopped moving. His recent activities — sold out tour, single after single, video after video — have proven his point that things were only just getting exciting at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.

Sergey’s latest effort is “Sdavaysya” (Surrender), the second single taken from his forthcoming studio album, after “Tak krasivo“.

Sergey Lazarev — “Sdavaysya”

The Russian pop star could not be more excited about the release of his new song. As he wrote on social media:

As I have already said, I have decided to release my new album step by step, song by song, with gaps of 3-4 weeks in between! The first taste from this series of premieres was the song “Tak krasivo”, which came out four weeks ago, and after only a few hours it topped charts of all the music providers in our country.

And now it is time for the next premiere! It is an incredibly powerful and emotional song “Sdavaysya”, which was written for me by the talented singer, actress and composer Irina Dubtsova! I adore this song, and I am happy that, finally, you can listen to it too! It is all on iTunes, Apple Music and Google Play! Listen to it and download legally!

Apart from the composer Irina Dubtsova, the “You Are the Only One” singer also thanked producers Alex Davia and Second Skin, audio master Alex HardRum, photographer Natali Arefieva and cover artist Mikhail Morozov for their contributions.

A post shared by Sergey Lazarev (@lazarevsergey) on

A love ballad flavoured with guitar strings and subtle electro beats, “Sdavaysya” is an emotional take on love and passion and surrendering to them. “I did not believe, that the soul without love, as without water, dries up […] Surrender!” Sergey sings.

“When desires prevail, when thirst remains with you forever, I will stop fearing that the wrath of heaven will tell me, This is the end.”

The song’s main asset, however, is Sergey’s voice, which portrays the emotions that colour it marvellously. In an era of auto-tune and overproduction, his unprocessed vocals are a delight to hear.

Sergey Lazarev — “Sdavaysya”: Lyrics

Original lyrics

Kogda obidy soydut na net
Kogda ty budesh’ gotova goret’ v ogne
Kogda tu budesh’ gotova prostit’ menya
Vpustit’ menya v svoy rassvet
Kogda zhelaniya oderzhat verkh
Kogda ot zhazhdy ostat’sya s toboy navek
Ya perestanu boyat’sya, chto gnev nebes
Skazhet mne “Eto konets!”

Sdavaysya!
V tvoyey voyne nich’ya, i ya proshu – vozvrashchaysya
Sdavaysya!
V moyey pustyne ty mirazh, no ne ischezay
Ya ne veril, chto bez lyubvi dusha, kak bez vody, vysykhayet
Ya bol’she tebe ne vrag
Sdavaysya!

Na rasstoyanii dvukh shagov,
Kogda ya budu kosnut’sya tebya gotov
Day slovo, chto ne poyavitsya propast’ i
Lyubov’ udastsya spasti
Kogda zakhlopnetsya tvoy kapkan
Kogda ya budu gotov umerert’ ot ran
Day slovo, chto perestanesh’ kaznit’ menya
Stala zhestokoy igra

Sdavaysya!
V tvoyey voyne nich’ya, i ya proshu – vozvrashchaysya
Sdavaysya!
V moyey pustyne ty mirazh, no ne ischezay
Ya ne veril, chto bez lyubvi dusha, kak bez vody, vysykhayet
Ya bol’she tebe ne vrag.
Sdavaysya!

Ya bol’she tebe ne vrag!

Sdavaysya!
V tvoyey voyne nich’ya, i ya proshu – vozvrashchaysya
Sdavaysya!
V moyey pustyne ty mirazh, no ne ischezay
Ne veril, chto bez lyubvi dusha, kak bez vody, vysykhayet
Ya bol’she tebe ne vrag
Sdavaysya!
V tvoyey voyne nich’ya, i ya proshu – vozvrashchaysya
Sdavaysya!
V moyey pustyne ty mirazh, no ne ischezay
Ya ne veril, chto bez lyubvi dusha, kak bez vody, vysykhayet
Ya bol’she tebe ne vrag
Sdavaysya!

English translation

When grievances come to nothing
When you are ready to burn in the fire
When you are ready to forgive me
Let me in at dawn
When the desires prevail
When against thirst will remain with you forever
I will stop fearing that the wrath of heaven
Will tell me, “This is the end”

Surrender!
A draw in your war, and I ask – come back
Surrender! In my desert you are a mirage, but you do not disappear
I did not believe, that the soul without love, as without water, dries up
I’m not your enemy anymore
Surrender!

At a distance of two steps
When I touch you all ready
Give me your word, that there will not be an abyss and
Love will be saved
When your trap snaps shut
When I’m ready to die from this wounds
Give me your word, that you will cease to punish me
The game has become brutal

Surrender!
A draw in your war, and I ask – come back
Surrender!
In my desert you are a mirage, but you do not disappear
I did not believe, that the soul without love, as without water, dries up
I’m not your enemy anymore
Surrender!

I’m not your enemy anymore!

Surrender!
A draw in your war, and I ask – come back
Surrender!
In my desert you are a mirage, but you do not disappear
I did not believe, that the soul without love, as without water, dries up
I’m not your enemy anymore
Surrender!
A draw in your war, and I ask – come back
Surrender!
In my desert you are a mirage, but you do not disappear
I did not believe, that the soul without love, as without water, dries up
I’m not your enemy anymore.
Surrender!
