Indica - Sanoja (English translation)

English translation

Words

How it is difficult to give up
Say "Thank you" and leave
We speak only of the future
When only emptiness is around us
Can it still be fixed
Make the extinguished spark
I smile more and more
When I feel the emptiness around me
 
Do I still carry
Do I still carry dreams of what was buried
Do you still think, only needs fixing
Sleeps beneath days
 
I've tried to understand
How one loses everything in the end
And just feel gratefulness
Though I want to be elsewhere
Is it always more beautiful
What one cannot reach
Now only longing colors my evenings
When I notice the emptiness around me
 
Do I still carry
Do I still carry dreams of what was buried
Do you still think, only needs fixing
Sleeps beneath days
 
Do I still give
Do I still give my soul to yesterday
Why build an altar for promises
We're left with only words
 
Do I still carry
Do I still carry dreams of what was buried
Do you still think, only needs fixing
Sleeps beneath days
 
Do I still give
Do I still give my soul to yesterday
If I loose the scissors to dance on the paper
Even words won't be left

"Tyhjyys" (here "emptiness") could also be "void" or "nothingness".
