Omen

Verse 1
Autumn painted braids gold,
Lost her power to grey-haired winter,
We stepped from the good thing into the darkness,
Shortened the novel to a story,
Yeah, as heaven would have it.
 
Chorus:
The truth doesn't hurt anymore,
Three times over the left shoulder, and to hell!
It's true! Go away, and still
Don't kiss me across the threshold - it's bad luck!
 
Verse 2
I came into your life, no,
I broke into, having left you no right to choice,
I couldn't be unloved by you,
You won, playing without rules, but having never
Become my destiny.
 
Chorus:
The truth doesn't hurt anymore,
Three times over the left shoulder, and to hell!
It's true! Go away, and still
Don't kiss me across the threshold - it's bad luck!
 
Having never become my destiny.
 
Chorus:
The truth doesn't hurt anymore,
Three times over the left shoulder, and to hell!
It's true! Go away, and still
Don't kiss me across the threshold - it's bad luck!
 
Хвала!

What does "Трижды через левое плечо" mean?

Олег Л.Олег Л.    Понедељак, 29/11/2021 - 10:43

It means "плюнуть три раза через левое плечо" to protect you against the devil.

OK, got it. And what about "не целуй меня через порог"? Is it the same thing like not to shake hands at the door?

Exactly it's! One more omen, it means "it may bring bad luck."

There is a superstition that one should not kiss upon the threshhold of a house (it could lead to long separation, etc). See here for ex:

In my place, I also heard that one should not offer a knife or scissors (it breaks friendship, or love), or handkerchieves (this will lead to tears), etc.

So, it is like she doesn't care that this relationship has failed. Nevertheless she still doesn't want to jinx it. Right?

it is like she doesn't care that this relationship has failed - it's right
Nevertheless she still doesn't want to jinx it - it's not right.
Не целуй меня через порог, - примета! - Don't kiss me across the threshold - it's bad luck! This words are nothing more, than a kind of duty parting words, when somebody has to say something.

Oh!
So, if I got it right, it is more like a "sarcastic way" to express she doesn't care. right?

Proshor ProshorovProshor Proshorov    Субота, 18/12/2021 - 19:27

It's about right. Much depends on, how you interpret. I'd not quite agree that it sounded like a "sarcastic way".
