Translation to English is off in this stanza:

Original is correct:

I am Calling Calling out!
Spirits, I am calling!!!
Soboy ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling, in the depths of longing!
Soboy ostat'sya dol'she...

Translation is incorrect:

I am Calling Calling out!
Spirits, I am calling!!!
To be with you longer...
Calling Calling, in the depths of longing!
To be with you longer!

Should be:
"Remain myself longer"
in both instances.

I can see how "Soboy" which means "myself" can be confused with "S toboy" which means "with you."
