about

This is an acoustic debut album by Marina Litvinova, a Kyiv based singer-songwriter. For several years in a row Marina was doing back vocals, working for various TV shows such as "The Voice of Ukraine" and “X – Factor”, supported celebrities gigs and studio sessions. All that time she was collaborating with DJs and club music producers a lot. By 2009 Marina has developed her own style and recorded her first songs as a solo artist. Then working with Evgen Stupka, famous producer from Ukraine and signing to Ultra Vogue music label followed. People from the Kyiv high fashion positively responded to her music and leading designers started to invite Litvinova to perform at their fashion shows.

"There is love music and friends that fills my life with joy, so this album is entirely dedicated to my dear friends. I can't help being amazed by this awkward mixture of characters in these people, I love so much. Every day they make me go "wow". I find myself as an adult and reasonably cynic person and sometimes I even think everyone in this world is living his separate life with it's own troubles, but in my darkest hour one of them always show up and break this worldview of mine. There is everything we need and if there is something you can't find at the moment your friend is there for you. With an easy heart they give me their time, music or just some attention. Thank you all! I really appreciate all your care and support!" - Marina Litvinova

Track Name: I'm Not Ok
I'm Not Ok

Some people say
That I'm like a drop of water
In an endless ocean of that damn one day singers
And there is no way
To somehow remember my name
It's only Uhhhh....

They have no time
To looking for someone who has more then to long legs and shiny smile
They say it's not cost effective
Sometimes that words
Makes me smile sometimes i just nodding
But Uhhhhh...

I know i'm smarter than that
But damn
It makes me sad
So i'm gonna take my old guitar
Starting making my new song
Singing...

I'm not ok
i'm not allright
Trying to find my way
Trying to sing my life
My future's looking bad
I'm not alright!

They always say
That i'm not have good charm and some kind of charisma
You know it...
Your songs are good
But it's not enough
It's only Uhhhhh...

I'm not ok
i'm not allright
Trying to find my way
Trying to sing my life
My future's looking bad
I'm not alright!

I'm not ok
i'm not allright
What about my dreams
What about my life
Trying to find my way
It's so hard to find
Crying in the night
I'm not alright!
Track Name: I Can't Breathe
I Can't Breathe

In the darkest night i can't sleep
It is something about you baby
Mb it's something about us
To the black hole i'm
Falling black and deep
It is something to do with feelings
Mb it's about love?...

I can't breathe...

Just sitting here
In an empty room
Wondering should i call you
Or mb i should not...
Stop thinking about you
Instantly i resume
I feel the air slowly
Becomes heavy and dense

I can't breathe...
Track Name: Pretend
Pretend

Like a little airplane

After crashing landing

I can’t tell the earth from heaven

Like a precious flower

Under burning rubber
I feel so lost without you

Like two laughing dolphins
In the endless ocean

We should be as one forever

Like a snotty schoolgirl
I just can't stop pretending.


I sense you in my life


My head is spinning round and round

And so I just

Pretend that it's me

Pretend that it's you

Pretend that you still
 
I could dry the ocean

Just to know, you’re watching

Watching me from where you are now 
I don’t feel abandoned

'Cuz I keep pretending.
You’re here while I’m alive.

My head is spinning round and round

And so I just

Pretend that it's me

Pretend that it's you

Pretend that you still
Track Name: Friends
Friends

Friends keep telling me
That it's wrong way
Why i keep coming to you if I can't stay
Friends keep telling me
That i'm not right
But still i can't sleep and thinkin' 'bout you every night
Friends keep telling me
That i'm a fool
But i still want you
And breaking all my rules
Friends keep telling me
That it's a road to nowhere
But I....

Keep coming down
Yes i keep coming down
Yes i keep coming down
I am hopelessly sick

Friends keep telling me
You need a time
But what can I do if you already have a heart of mine?.
Friends keep telling me
You have a choice
But I...

Keep coming down
Yes i keep coming down
Yes i keep coming down
I am hopelessly sick

Yes I keep coming down
(there is no hope for me)
Yes i keep coming down
(there is no hope)
Yes i keep coming down
(keep falling down)
I am hopelessly sick

(Keep coming down)
I
(Yes i keep coming down)
Keep falling
(Yes i keep coming down)
I'm coming down
(I am hopelessly sick)
There is no hope for me

(Keep coming down)
Coming down
(Yes i keep coming down)
Coming down
(Yes i keep coming down)
I am hopelessly sick
(I am hopelessly sick)
Keep coming down...
Track Name: Jealous
Let me explain
How it feels like
It is some kind of feeling
That I can’t fight
It's taking over me
it's humiliatingly
it's not me
it's not me
I feel this flame
And it burns you
It is some kind of a story
Just about two
And I can’t pass this maze
Help me!!!
Too complicated things
For me..
Foe me..

won't you just come to me
say you love me
Say you need me
and hold me

All these girls around us - they are shadows
If you hug me, hold me tight - they will flee
Oh, my honey, I’m not mad, I’m not jealous
All I want – to know right what you feel.

Babe, I don’t blame
All these people
When I feel apartness
I feel cripple
Don’t know who I am
(For you)
I’m tired of these games
with you
with you
Just call my name
Hold me so tight
Say, it’s not for moment
It’s for the whole life
And I’ll believe, babe
(Come to me…)
And I will not complaint
I believe
I believe

won't you just come to me
say you love me
Say you need me
and hold me
say i'm the one
i'm all you need
i'm all you want
hold me

All these girls around us - they are shadows
If you hug me, hold me tight - they will flee
Oh, my honey, I’m not mad, I’m not jealous
All I want – to know right what you feel.

won't you just come to me
say you love me
Say you need me
and hold me
say i'm the one
i'm all you need
i'm all you want
hold me
Track Name: When I
When I

My mom and dad leave theyre happy life in '89
And now they leave ech others houses doors on fire
My sister selfish and she bugs me all alone the line
And all that rabbish pressed and makes me cry
And all crap was part of me when i...

When i fall in love with you

When i

When i fall in love with you

I look around and i can see a thousand smiling faces
But in the end no one deserving to be called my friend
I don't belive that someone really cared what's on my mind
And all that rabbish pressed and makes me cry
And all crap was part of me when i...

Track Name: Thinkin'
Thinkin'

Time is changing everything
Every time i see the leaves fall
I realise i'm not the same young girl
How her eyes were shining
Brighter than the stars in the sky

But life is changing all the time
I was feeling hopeless and blue
Then you came walking trough my door
Your smile...
Like the world in springtime
Everything was new

Now thinking of you
Yes i'm thinking of you
And it feels like sunshine
When i see you
So i'm thinking of you
Yes i'm thinking of you
And the world feels like new
Cause you're so true

Everyone knows troubles in there lives
It can fells like winter time
Making life so hard and cold and fragile
Feels like breaking every time
Like thin layers of ice

But fate is shifting all the time
You can feel lonely and sad
But suddenly new love will grow
Your kiss...
Like the world in springtime
Everything is new!

So now i will love you
Yes and i will love you
And it feels like sunshine when i see you
So now i will love you
Yes and i will love you
And the world feels like new
Cause you're so true

Life has brought a gift to me
Every day the sun will shine
My life is filled with love and hope
Your eyes
In your arms i'm worm
And safe and with you i can conquer the sky...

So i'll never leave you
Yes i'll never leave you
And it feels like sunshine
When i'm with you
So i'll never leave you
And i'll always love you
And the world feels like new
Cause i'm with you

So i'll never leave you
Yes i'll never leave you
And it feels like sunshine
When i'm with you
So i'll never leave you
And i'll always love you
And the world feels like new
Cause i'm with you

Now i'm with you

Track Name: Right Now
Right Now Right Here

If
I were clever and stronger
This love affair would be over

But
My desire is like fire
Burning down my right mind

I
Sacrifice honor to love you,
build my altar of desire

Lust
I’m an incurable patient
Save me from this raving madness.


I want to feel your arms
all over my body
wanna hear your whisper
right into my ear
I want to be one flesh
With you, to be your goddess
I want your all
right now right here

If
I were clever and stronger
This love affair would be over

But
My desire is like fire
Burning down my right mind

I
Sacrifice honor to love you,
build my altar of desire

Lust
I’m an incurable patient
Save me from this raving madness.

and yes
my mama tells me that good girls
shouldn't act this way

I want to feel your arms
all over my body
wanna hear your whisper
right into my ear
I want to be one flesh
With you, to be your goddess
I want your all
right now right here
Track Name: It's Wrong
It's Wrong

Just can’t understand myself
What I’m doing, what I’m saying
Yesterday I was pretty happy, but then
You have come and my life has changed.

(It’s hard to breath)
and I can’t move
(And I can’t sleep)
Spend my nights all alone
And just one thought
How nice it would be
(To feel myself in your arms)

And I know it’s wrong
But I want you so bad
Yes I know it’s wrong
And it’s driving me mad

And as long as I’m
Trying to kill it in me
I can see that this feeling’s
Become much deeper than sea
And it’s hard to say
How it tears me apart
‘Cause I know loving him
I gonna break his heart

Just can’t understand myself
What I’m doing, what I’m saying
Everything’s going a wrong way
Breaking all I was planning.

(It’s hard to breath)
just want you to hold me tight
(And I can’t sleep)
Save me from my lonely nights
And just one thought
The only thing I need is
To be in your arms

And I know it’s wrong
But I want you so bad
Yes I know it’s wrong
And it’s driving me mad
Track Name: Dash - Come And Stay (feat. Marina Litvinova)
Come And Stay

In the middle of the night
I wake up with a strange feeling
Sound are crowding in my head
Scattered words that have no meaning

Raindrops stopping in midair
Seconds losing definition
The world and me
Waiting for your decision

Oh baby free your love
It’s very easy to do
Oh pleas complete this puzzle
My love will give you a clue
Say that you will be mine
It’s very easy to say
No more games to play
Just want you to come and stay!

Sometimes in the middle of the day
I look up and find that I am lost
Things fade out and contours blur away
It is you I want to see the most

Raindrops stopping in midair
Seconds losing definition
The world and me
Waiting for your decision

Oh baby free your love
It’s very easy to do
Oh pleas complete this puzzle
My love will give you a clue
Say that you will be mine
It’s very easy to say
No more games to play
Just want you to come and stay!

Oh baby free your love
It’s very easy to do
Oh pleas complete this puzzle
My love will give you a clue
Say that you will be mine
It’s very easy to say
No more games to play
Just want you to come and stay!

No more games to play
Just want you to come and stay!

No more games to play
Just want you to come and stay!

Oh baby free your love!
Track Name: Marta Adamchuk - Around The World (feat. Marina Litvinova)
Around The World

Place where rivers and emerald hills
Place where birds incredibly sing
Look through blooming flowers and stones
You’ll find me here
How to soar over mistakes
Learn to give forgetting to take
If you’re looking for light in your soul
Listen to me!

I was walking for the miles and days
I can sing with birds and (I) dance with angels
So you came to me and (you) want to stay
I can smile in any foreign language

Birds are weaving rains in sky
Into streams that flood from heaven
When you fall asleep just smile
And I hope you’ll find… you’ll find me there

Even if I’m only your dream
Light in eyes of the happy people
But I know that book was made for me
Book of fate with pages for our meeting

And I know
That you make steps
Steps to meet me: quick or slow
As I hope
You won’t forget
That true love’s like flame eternal.

Place where rivers and emerald hills
Place where birds incredibly sing
Look through blooming flowers and stones
You’ll find me here
How to soar over mistakes
Learn to give forgetting to take
If you’re looking for light in your soul
Listen to me!
