Hello, (sorry, it's a lot to read => you can also just skip until 'QUESTION' )
I've been in Finland for half a year last year from january till june;
this year for some schoolproject we need to do a personal reflection. I wanted to reflect my experience of living in Finland (and being there with both finnish and spanish people)
Yeeeaars ago i discovered that a lot of my favourite bands are finnish. because most of them sing in english it's not a problem, but now for this project, i'd rather wanted to use some finnish-singing music.
While I was in finland i discovered 'Harmaja' the finnish project of charon singer J.P. which i absolutely love. I have been listening it for quite some time there and in a way it kind of expresses my winter feeling in finland, so i thought it was really good to use. Since the album hasn't been out that long yet (and i only discovered a week ago i can actually order it on the internet), I don't have the lyrics yet. I can't find the finnish onces anywhere on internet, so it's quite impossible to use any of their songs now.
I know it's quite a lot of work, so if nobody wants to do it, i don't blame you at all...
but if anybody would want to do it, i'd love to have the lyrics in Finnish and if possible translated (or pieces of it...) most of all 'sydäntalvella' (just the lyrics in Finnish most of all) , 'palavana'
you can listen to those on their myspace:
And 'sataa' which is to be found here:
Thanks on beforehand to anyone who wants to help in any way!!!
I found a translation already of 'sydäntalvella' (if you have the feeling you can do better, go ahead!!):
By my warm lamp passes the times of gold
Yet didn´t the darkness swallowed you away from me
You open the garden of fairytale
And there we stay together
The burning roses are blooming around our heads awhile
Hear the snowy lines lashing the window
From the open sea rages the midwinter breezes
Against the night and dark
Must the man leave
The light of the window still glows to the road awhile
By my lamp staying
Then nothing else I know
I see a boy in the storm going next to the ravine
