lyrics in finnish >>>

all joy turns to grief
(itku pitkästä ilosta)


a good day
(hyvä päivä)

i won't look back
(en katso taakse)

the last of their breed
(lajinsa viimeiset)

love without end
(rajaton rakkaus)

on low grounds
(alavilla mailla)

pierced by shame
(häpeän lävistämä)

russian orphans
(venäjän orvot)




a winter night's tale
(talvi-illan tarina)

i won´t look back

ice is rare nowadays
children can´t build castles of snow
usually the swallows
arrive already in February

only the old folks remember
a white christmas time
children in museums
wonder about sleds and skiss

but now a real winter started
the snow glows like in olden times
my breath freezes as statues
the coldness leaves burnmarks on your skin

this weather is a certain sign
a sign to stand up
to take the plans out
and carry them out `til the end

as I have seen the last snowfall
let it snow my house full
i´ll set free the animals
burn the papers without reading

i´ll leave the doors open
won´t put even my boots on
i won´t take anyone with me
i won´t look back any more
