Yona - Kevätfiilis (English translation)

English translation

Spring vibes

I walking the side of Sturenkatu [1]
When spring is coming
And people are breaking their shells
Making that to happen
 
Feeling of peace
Supernatural
And no more I am afraid
Afraid no more I am
 
In my head phones play
the opera of Rachmaninov
I cannot be anymore
cold-hearted (wo feelings) can't I be
can't I be cold-hearted no more
 
Ice melts
to the gutter
I lean to the traffic sign
 
I close my eyes
Inhale deeply
I nurture my belief
for all good
 
? to an hypnosis caressing
Abandon my sense of reality
Abandon my sense of reality
 
Shalalala
I pushed through the storms and darkness
Through 6 chilling months
Hailing from Barcelona
 
Shalalala
I pushed through the sleet and subzero weather
Through my heart's
deep frostbites
 
In the Kurvi [2] of Sörnäinen [3]
Sauli of the streets (homeless)
Button of his shirt
ripped open
 
Screamed aloud
Gave a kiss to a fine lady
Goodbye chilling toilets of train stations
Cats [4] of the streets who have become familiar
 
He takes his destination
a park (one with shade from sun or?)
Gets nostalgic and remembers his youth memories
Gets nostalgic and remembers his youth memories
 
Shalalala
I pushed through the storms and darkness
Through 6 chilling months
Hailing from Koff's park [5]
 
Shalalala
I pushed through the sleet and subzero weather
Through my heart's
deep frostbites
 
I promise
that to you, summer
I won't this moment
ever forget
 
I will make love on your grass
full of passion
And your waves
will I caress with my toes
 
I will pick up your flower
and place it behind my ear
Dance through
the midnight sun [6]
