it is a great love
where there’s not just a whisper
not just what you think you’ve heard

it is the sound of Ukrainians all over the world lining up to returning home
home to take up arms…

đây là một tình yêu
lớn, nơi không phải một giọng thì thầm
không phải như những gì bạn lắng nghe
.
nơi người ukraine trên khắp thế giới đang trở về
xếp hàng nhận súng…
