"LAI LAI HEI" as written by and Jari Tapani Maeenpaeae....
Han katsoi maan reunalta tahtea putoavaa
Nyt kanuiit kasvot neitosen peittaa karu maa
Jokaisen taytyy katsoa silmiin totuuden
Silla aika ompi voittoisa, mut' tama maa on ikuinen

There's a place in the North, far far away
Home for the wandering man
Dreaming fells with skies so pale
Calm is the glorious land
Flames will send the sign to the sky
That we have come to feast tonight
The lakes are echoing with our song
Shadows are dancing on the forest walls

Enchantment of the fire and moon
Lost in the whispering night
The raven's magic enthralls the woods
Crawling in the sweet starlight
We have gathered in this distant land
Full of wisdom, secrets and tales
The morning will never rise again
Roaming wolves are howling for the dead

LAI LAI HEI!

He watched a falling star, at the edge of the world
Now the maiden's beautiful face is covered in barren earth
Everyone has to look into the eyes of the truth,
For time is victorious, but this land will always stay true

    General CommentThe last verse is the English translation, it's sun in Finnish like the first verse. There's also a line missing after "The lakes are echoing with our song", which is "Shadows are dancing on the forrest floor"

    General CommentThe last verse isn't the English translation ::confused::

    The English translation would be something like:
    "He looked at the falling star from the edge of the world
    Now the maiden's face is covered by barren earth
    Everyone has to look in the eyes of truth
    For time is victorious, but this land is eternal"
