  • Some Sydän, sydän song translations I did for the fun of it.

    Set 5 2011, 19h14

    For the convenience I'll add new translations on top.
    (Anything in brackets is my notes about the translation.)
    // Inside slashes is my interpretation of the song //
    Feel free to post improvements.
    I will make some new ones when I feel like it.

    Ducato

    Our apartment ignited, the electricity was turned off.
    Our bodies froze, and all was erased.
    I ended up in a cold container.
    The gods won't help even though I'm trembling all over
    and the coat is of no use.

    Nonetheless a warm heart is beating inside my chest.
    A heart is beating inside my chest.

    Beautiful yellow lamps are shining from the window.
    I am safe here, big taste is yet to be eaten.(Big taste is a finnish toast)

    I wish it was summer, I should change position.
    Skopa's laughter rises over the motor, we are soon there and

    there is a warm heart beating inside my chest.
    A heart is beating inside my chest.
    And it feels like it's about to stop.

    I am totally screwed but this is a man's decision.
    And it holds.
    Why don't gods ever make anything but shit?
    Probably because they don't exist.
    Or maybe I am wrong.
    As a child I prayed for a proper sized arrow for my pistol
    and I found it, almost instantly.
    I suppose the time for miracles is not over yet.

    I dug some bags, and found a bottle of wine.
    I drank it during the trip enjoying,
    enjoying of life.

    Nonetheless a warm heart is beating inside my chest
    inside my chest there is beating a warm...

    // This song is about a man, who lost his apartment(and maybe his family?) to a fire, and lives now in his car, Fiat Ducato. The car is cold and he is envious of people who live in a house, eating their big tastes. He resorts to digging trashbags to survive. I wonder if the whole Kapseli is an album about the lives of other people? //


    Tiger/Tiikeri

    Thank you
    for everything that we were.
    I don't feel good or bad anymore.
    Forgive me if I said something foul.
    You were always so unbelievably nice.

    A lousy parable incoming: Like heads and tails we were back then.

    Now everything has just come to an end.
    It is no one's fault.
    I'm not about to forget.
    I'm not about to forget.

    Farewell, we'll see in my dreams.
    You held me together for five years.

    A lousy parable incoming: Like a dog and a cat we were back then.

    Now everything has just come to an end.
    It is no one's fault.
    I'm not about to forget.
    I'm not about to forget.

    We are going on our separate ways now.
    I don't know what's coming.
    It doesn't matter if you change.
    I'm not about to forget.

    I hope you're ok and you'll find a decent guy.

    Now everything has just come to an end.
    It is no one's fault.
    I'm not about to forget.
    I'm not about to forget.

    We are going on our separate ways now.
    I don't know what's coming.
    It doesn't matter if you change.
    I'm not about to forget.

    I miss you sometimes.

    // Do I need to say something about this? I love how this is not the typical "oh how I miss you already" or "I hate you now!" song about breaking up. Oh, and I love how this song comes after Rakkaus ei kuihdu koskaan where Skopa sings "Our love never fades away", he is such a trickster that one ;) //


    Death arrives/Kuolema tulee

    Sometimes I feel awful and would like to kill everyone.
    I'd lightly crush a head, just not today.
    I don't take care of my things, otherwise I see a lot of ghosts.
    I don't take care of my things, at least not today.

    Everyone always talks about death.
    I wonder what it feels like.
    Humans and all animals shall know all about it.

    Know all about it.

    The world is a vampire(this is in english)

    Know all about it.

    Will our story continue like this?
    No way!
    No way!
    Because I'm not a killer, I can't kill people.
    Because I'm not a killer, at least I don't know anything.

    Everyone always talks about death.
    I wonder what it feels like.
    Humans and animals shall know all about it.

    Know all about it.

    The world keeps turning(once again in english).

    Know all about it.

    // A quite straightforward angst song :D I think that's 'nuff said. //


    Cuckoo/Käki

    Me, come, to come, aid to come, afraid to come
    at night to the room of the lady who hands over sugar from the closet:
    there's something too much in this apartment.

    Tic, tac, tic, cuckoo!
    Cuckoo!

    These days christmas feels like absolutely nothing when I can't dance for the joy of my relatives wearing a wig.

    S after, s after, ars after, years after(funny thing here, the first part in finnish is En päästä, which can be translated to "I won't let")
    you understand the mother excessively scolding the son:
    grandmother was sick already back then.

    Time is ticking, cuckoo!
    Cuckoo!

    I'm alive, I just should do something before all changes.

    A woman with six dogs has moved into that apartment
    Into that aparment where the kid was hiding the monsters.

    // The cuckoo is actually a cuckoo clock and time is ticking. And yeah, the cuckoo clock is there inside the lady's apartment, reminding the narrator that time is passing. And that scares him. This song is a reminder how time passes fast and how we should "carpe diem". //

    Shit/Paskaa

    I bet flies are guessing how much shit you can have in your mouth. Even the most rubberlike of potatoes is turned into brown pulp while gum, coins and even the seeds of a plant remain.

    I know you know the fate of food.
    How much shit can the world take?(this is literally it,
    not in the context of "I take shit from no one!" so the proper word
    is actually contain but I like the pun :D)

    When our world has forsaken all life, the shit will have piled into mountains.

    Sharks and monkeys, the bear and the bumblebee, they have to sometimes.
    Vipers and the leopard, each and every human, it overflows.

    4999 and some number I can't remember anymore today.

    Sharks and monkeys, the bear and the bumblebee, they have to sometimes.
    Vipers and the leopard, each and every human, it overflows.
    I doubt these animals will laugh about it without the human.

    // Does this song have a deeper meaning? Doubt it. There is just a lot of shit and the weird number mentioned(which is actually mentioned again in Perkele Kolme Hevosta). //


    Love never fades/Rakkaus Ei Kuihdu Koskaan

    You can only feel love when you are left(I think this means when you breakup, not 100% sure).
    Rumours about the relationship were born in the hallways of the prison.
    My soul is tacky goo. Can I? I think I've found the right one for me.
    I don't know a damn.

    Never, love never
    Our love never fades away.

    Do I even know something about this subject? Nope, I can only wonder. Can you feel it beating inside my chest, the rhytm we share.

    Never, love never
    Our love never fades away.

    Never, love never,
    Love can never be forced

    // A love song, should be understood by everyone without explanations :) //


    Cock/Kukko(just to make it sure, it's actually the animal but I think it's quite clear he is talking about the cock between his legs ;) )

    I wiped it all clean, erased it by accident. I am following my cock, at least it knows where to go.

    I just couldn't resist it's temptation.

    Lower your gaze, something was leftover.

    I am just following my cock home. I am just following... things. I miss cock home.
    I yearn and I yearn and I yearn for something.

    I get lost easily, trying to find my place. I am following my cock, can't get very far.
    I just couldn't resist it's steering. If you only would call me... I just don't dare to do it myself because...(it's a tie in to the chorus)

    I am just following my cock home, I am just following things. I yearn for something.
    I yearn and I yearn and I yearn for something.

    I follow, I follow.

    // I love this song. I think this song is about a drunk guy(see the first line of the song, he erased his memory by excessive drinking) who only follows his lust(his cock), ending up yearning for something more. What he yearns for? For the girl he really likes but is too afraid to call because he's ashamed of the things he's done drunk. //


    Three questions, two answers/Kolme kysymystä, kaksi vastausta

    I need a women.. or do I? Absolutely so! I can't stand being alone, no way! No fucking way!

    Does this life last long? Does it even end? Will it give me a second chance? Don't think so.

    Now I found a woman or did I? There is no way to be sure. Am I happy? Yes, yep. For a certainty.

    Does this life last long? Does it even end? Will it give me a second chance? Don't think so.

    // This song is simply about wanting to find a girlfriend, but with the fear of falling in love with someone who really isn't meant for the narrator. I kinda understand this from experience, not that I have experienced it myself but my parents where married for 25 years, and they sure as hell weren't meant for each others. You don't get second chances in life, don't fall in love with the first one who comes across you in the street. //


    Can't be true/Ei voi olla totta

    What do the boys like, since I'm too embarassed to sing?
    What do the boys like, since I'm too embarassed to sing?
    Booze and the ideas are put together.
    Booze and the ideas are put together.
    Hey you boys listen to this old hymn.
    Hey you boys listen to this old hymn.
    The songs and the lyrics won't leave me alone.
    The songs and the lyrics won't leave me alone.

    The same old major(it means the note). It's haunting me.
    I can't get rid of it, can't get rid of it. Don't even want to.

    I can't come up with anything to write. I don't know what kind of patterns to use.
    Can't come up with anything to write.

    The limp song is put into an F#maj7 note. That boy with no charisma and the group with
    no charisma are put to a test.

    I can't come up with anything to write. I don't know what kind of patterns to use.
    Can't come up with anything to write.

    Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do.
    Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do.

    It's so late when compared to the world.
    There are no ideas, no ideas at all.
    One more sentence.

    // This is simple. It's about how hard it is to write unique and original songs. //
