Butterfly of life (Elämänperhonen)

English translation

Butterfly of life

I'm spinning around you, flapping my wings
I'm bustling as frantic, trying to sneak silently
You'd want to go already, it would be too early for that
If I didn't fly buzzing you would just fade away
 
I command whispering into your ear
Don't give up yet
 
I'm the little insect
Tickling your belly button
I won't leave you alone yet
You can not slide behind the boundary
You can not slide behind the boundary
 
Today you won't hide behind your heavy drapes
Mum is still here, your butterfly of life
(mum, mum, mum, mum)
You'd want to go already, it would be too early for that
If I didn't fly buzzing you would just fade away
 
I'm counting your heart beats
Don't give up yet
 
I'm the little insect
Tickling your belly button
I won't leave you alone yet
You can not slide behind the boundary
You can not slide behind the boundary
You can not slide behind the boundary
 
Don't go
Don't go
I'm here
Don't go
Don't yet
Not yet
Not yet

Just confirming as another native speaker of Finnish that this is a well-done direct translation accurately conveying the meaning of the original lines.
