Two Words Lyrics

Broadway production 2015
Doctor Zhivago the Musical - Two Words Lyrics

MUSCOVITES:
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ever since the ancient riders
Crossed the great divide,
Russia is a land where
Joy and sorrow coincide.
Two worlds,
Of the plough and the sword.
Two worlds,
Of the serf and the lord.
Two worlds,
Self-contained and discreet
And never the two shall meet.

YOUNG YURII:
Why have you left me alone in the world?
Where do you go when you die?
Papa, don’t float away
Like a leaf on the wind
Lost in a cold white sky.

MUSCOVITES:
Two worlds
Of the flesh on the earth.
Two worlds
Of the soul in rebirth.
Two worlds
Like the smoke from a flame
We return from where we came.
