Another translation of V. Vysotsky. (I just can't stop)

To the scramble of cities and the crowded streets
We return, for these places have bound us.
We descend from the conquered mountain peaks,
Leaving our hearts in the mountains.

So, I beg you, just stop all the meaningless fights!
Many times I have proven this speech,
For the only thing that is better than heights,
Is the height that I havenít yet reached!

Who would want to be left all alone in a mix?
To descend while the heart starts to revel?--
Yet, we left from the conquered mountain peaks--
For even Gods desended from heaven.

So, I beg you, just stop all the meaningless fights!
Many times I have proven this speech,
For the only thing that is better than heights,
Is the height that I havenít yet reached!

Many beautiful songs in their honor were penned
And the mountains beg us to stay.
For a year or forever-- but we have to descend,
We must always return, either way.

So, I beg you, just stop all the meaningless fights!
Many times I have proven this speech,
For the only thing that is better than heights,
Is the height that no one has reached!
