Wait for me (Odota, niin palajan)

English translation

Wait for me

Wait for me, and I'll come back!
Wait, do that
Wait, when autumun spoils the atmosphere
Wait, if winter weather or a summer
When others are fading from your mind,
They are forgotten
Wait, when the solace of letter won't come
Wait, when waiting took away the hope from the others
Wait for me, and I'll come back!
Reject the friends,
that tell you should forget me
Son, mother, let them believe that the man won't return
Let my friends sit, where fire is blazing
Let them drink their wine to my memory
Wait! And do not drink with them!
Wait for me and I'll come back,
Dodging every fate! (of dying)
Let them say,
"sometimes you get lucky"
Those that would not wait.
They will most likely not understand
How could you have had saved a human life
How was I saved, only you and I will know
Simply you knew how to wait, unlike the others

The Agit Prop version was slightly reduced from the English translation given there: http://www.simonov.co.uk/waitforme.htm and the basic meaning of the Finnish words were the same as in the English translation. I tried to be more faithful for the Finnish version in the translation rather than copying from the English translation

Odota, niin palajan

Odota, niin palajan
Odota, se tee
Odota, kun tunnelman syksy turmelee
Odota, jos talvisää taikka kesä lie
Mielestä kun toiset jää,
unho heidät vie
Odota, kun saavu ei kirjeen lohdutus
