Nukkuu korpi, ja nyt, aatoksissain minä matkaa teen
Yli metsien, uinuvan veen
Kuutar taivaan yön valaisee
Maalaa maiseman, pohjoisen siimeksen

Unta onko tää,
Vai kuolema jossa palata sinne saan missä
hiillos jo luovuttaa lumen alla
Kun astun maailmaan, erämaan aikaan

Ensilumi satoi kahdesti
Maalasi sieluni taulun

Tää jylhä kauneus ja ääretön yksinäisyys
Lapsuuteni metsän, taivaan
Kaikuu se haikeus halki tän matkan
Aamun tullen yö tarinansa kertoo
Jylhä on kauneus ja ääretön yksinäisyyteni
Sitä henkeensä halajaa
Kehtoni hauta, hautani paikka
Erämaan viimeinen on

Minne katosivat muut
Suon noidat, neidontornit
Ja varjoissa havisevat puut
Kielon istutin ikihankeen
Ja hiljaisuuden tultua luotin tulevaan

Ensilumi satoi kahdesti
Maalasi sieluni taulun

Tää jylhä kauneus ja ääretön yksinäisyys
Lapsuuteni metsän, taivaan
Kaikuu se haikeus halki tän matkan
Aamun tullen yö tarinansa kertoo
Jylhä on kauneus ja ääretön yksinäisyyteni
Sitä henkeensä halajaa
Kehtoni hauta, hautani paikka
Erämaan viimeinen on

    General CommentActually it's not Anett singing this song...it's Johanna Salomaa "Jonsu" from Indica...although I don't really like her voice I like the lyrics very much...
    Don't have any idea what it can be about...I'm little sleepy right now...XD

    General CommentHere are partial Lyric translations from a Finnish friend, didn't translate the whole thing, hopefully soon.

    Wilderness sleeps, and now, in my thoughts i´m travelling on
    Over forests, sleeping water
    Mooness lights up the night sky
    Paints a view of northern shade

    Is this dream,
    or death where i can go back to, where
    embers are giving up under snow
    When i step to the world, time of the wilds

    First snow came twice
    Painted the painting of my soul

    General CommentHere's a translation I got from a finnish forum:

    "Probably filled with mistakes, difficult to translate something that has old-finnish, but here goes for nothing:

    The last of the wilds

    Sleeps wilderness, and now, in my thoughts I wend
    over the forests, silent water
    Moon lightens the night sky
    paints a scenery, northern umbrage

    Is this dream,
    or death where I may return to where
    embers give up beneath the snow
    when I step into the world, time of the wilds

    First snow snowed twice
    Painted a picture of my soul

    This wild beauty and infinite loneliness
    of my childhoods forests, skies
    The nostalgia echoes through this journey
    When morning comes, it tells its tale
    Wild is the beauty and infinite my loneliness
    Into its spirit yearns
    Grave of my cradle, place of my grave
    Last of the wilds is

    Where did the others go
    Witches of the swamps, (neidontorni, a monument in russia? didn't find a good translation for that)
    And the trees shivering in the shadows
    I planted lily-of-the-valley into the crust-of-snow
    And when silence descended, I trusted in future

    First snow snowed twice
    Painted a picture of my soul

    This wild beauty and infinite loneliness
    of my childhoods forests, skies
    The nostalgia echoes through this journey
    When morning comes, it tells its tale
    Wild is the beauty and infinite my loneliness
    Into its spirit yearns
    Grave of my cradle, place of my grave
    Last of the wilds is

    General CommentI must admit, though i cannot read Finnish, I really really enjoy Anette's voice in this recording. One of her best displays thus far I think, along with Escapist and a few various others.
