Not Gonna Get Us

t.A.T.u.

June 15, 2014 - Moscow, Russia



Lyrics

Not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us!

Starting from here, let's make a promise
You and me, let's just be honest
We're gonna run, nothing can stop us
Even the night that falls all around us

Soon there will be laughter and voices
Beyond the clouds over the mountains
We'll run away on roads that are empty
Lights from the airfield shining upon you

Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us
they're not gonna get us
Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us
they're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us

We'll run away, keep everything simple
Night will come down, our guardian angel
We rush ahead, the crossroads are empty
Our spirits rise, they're not gonna get us

My love for you, always forever
Just you and me, all else is nothing
Not going back, not going back there
They don't understand
They don't understand us

Not gonna get us, gonna get us, gonna get us
Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us, gonna get us
Not gonna get us

Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us
they're not gonna get us
Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us
they're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us, gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us, get us
Not gonna get us, get us
Not gonna get us


Tori Quotes

What about covering Not Gonna Get Us by faux-lesbian duo T.A.T.U. song during a Moscow gig given the government's current anti-LGBT stance?

That was my way of saying, "Okay, Putin's coming onto this stage tomorrow morning, which he did, and I'm going to be the last one to be on it before he takes stage, so I'm going to leave a little message here and he'll never know what it is, ever, ever, ever but that's fine, millions of people will. The people that will need to know will know..." But the reason I did the song was because the song would put forth -- over the years -- a message (given) they've been on stage making out with each other and in videos, so I felt the message was supportive of intimacy of women.

And did you sing in English or in Russian or in both?

Both. I had phonetic lessons by my bodyguard. [Canoe - August 6, 2014]
