And you've gotta respect the position in which you playing
Never let your heart reflect the conditions in which its staying
Even if it's dark, and the temperature is the same
As winters in the Ukraine,
The Ukraine has notoriously long and cold winters. Therefore, when your heart is dark and cold from the conditions you have been forced to live under, you should keep it for yourself and not take it out on somebody that has nothing to do with it.
