The Ball Pit Man (Pallomerimies)

Englisch Übersetzung

The Ball Pit Man

Children do get to come,
run to the great lap.
Can he come too
who already grows a beard?
 
You get to the kingdom
if you're child-like.
What if your soul isn't
pure white anymore?
 
The clothes of innocence have grown small
 
How to be a ball pit man, a candy bus driver, the courier of love,
if on the top of your fort a banner of compassion doesn't wave?
Can I be a carousel guy, a sandcastle lord, a farmer of pine cone cows?
But in a shabby heart you can find a child-like hero.
 
The same old soul
but innocence is missing.
Why does the faith of an adult
turn into analysis?
 
Father I want to know
is it possible,
to identify with a boy
in a childhood photo album?
 
The clothes of innocence have grown small
 
How to be a ball pit man, a candy bus driver, the courier of love,
if on the top of your fort a banner of compassion doesn't wave?
Can I be a carousel guy, a sandcastle lord, a farmer of pine cone cows?
But in a shabby heart you can find a child-like hero.
 
Innocence isn't dead.
If you light up in flames,
I believe in the spark.
 
How to be a ball pit man, a candy bus driver, the courier of love,
if on the top of your fort a banner of compassion doesn't wave?
Can I be a carousel guy, a sandcastle lord, a farmer of pine cone cows?
But in a shabby heart you can find a child-like hero.
 
A child-like hero

Kommentare des Autors:

A very hard song to translate with lots of complicated finnish sentence structures and specific culture-related vocabulary.

For example, pine cone cows are a traditional toy made by children out of pine cones and sticks (you attach the sticks onto the cones as legs).
