"Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan" as written by and Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen....
Kerran vain haaveeni nהhdה sain
En pienuutta alla tהhtien tuntenut
Kerran sain kehtooni kalterit
Vankina sieltה kirjettה kirjoitan

Luojani, luoksesi, anna minun tulla siksi, miksi lapseni minua luulee
Sinussa maailman kauneus, josta kuolema teki minusta taiteilijan
Luojani, luoksesi, anna minun tulla siksi, miksi lapseni minua luulee

Oman taivaan tהnne loin
Anna minun pההstה pois
Oman taivaan tהnne loin
Anna minun pההstה pois

    General Comment"Luojani" actually means "My creator" - greetings from a native speaker of Finnish.

    General CommentThe translations are:

    Only once I could see my dream
    Didn't feel the smallness under the stars
    Once I got bars in my cradle
    As a prisoner I write a letter from there

    My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am
    In you is the beauty of the world, of which death made me an artist
    My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am

    My own heaven I created here
    Let me get away
    My own heaven I created here
    Let me get away

    General CommentFirst of all I want to thank BeA for the translation of the song and binni for the translation of the title!! Thank you! I looked on the official site and couldn't find a translation! Wow the lyrics are so beautiful... My favorite line is "My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am ". I don't know why it's just gorgeous and the way Tarja sings is so heartfelt.

    General CommentTaiteilija usually means painter, sculptor, or something like that, not singer. It can be said that a singer is taitelija, but that's uncommon.
