Anna Eriksson - Oot voimani mun (English translation)

English translation

You are my strength

The wind is blowing
The rain is beating against the window
Covered by the darkness
Is already the yard
Its shadows can’t find
Us, though,
Love
Blazes like a sea of fire
My heart wants that warmth
At last
I can confess everything to you
 
You are my strength
When I remain in your arms
I can move mountains
So strong am I
If only I can stay in your arms
 
You are my strength
And your will
I will defer to and I will do it anytime
So strong am I
When I can remain in your arms once again
 
I lose
All my strength when you go away
I’m sad as if my heart is made of glass
When you come back, however, I know that
 
You are my strength
When I remain in your arms
I can move mountains
So strong am I
If only I can stay in your arms
 
You are my strength
And your will
I will defer to and I will do it anytime
So strong am I
When I can remain in your arms once again
 
When the stars of the night fade away
And the nocturnal Earth darkens
Then I don’t know anything more beautiful
My strength
When I remain in your arms
I can move mountains
So strong am I
If only I can stay in your arms
 
You are my strength
And your will
I will defer to and I will do it anytime
So strong am I
When I can remain in your arms once again

Author's comments:

I translated this fairly quickly but at the moment I'm almost satisfied with the end result, will probably tweak it a little bit later on, if that's possible and I get around it. I feel that I lost some of the poetic feeling, some of the colloquialisms in the original Finnish in the English translation, though, but that always happens in this sort of translation.

I'm not sure if I'd ever heard this song before but I quite like Anna Eriksson (although I don't listen this kind of Finnish middle-age dance band music that often), this next link here is my favourite song by her:
