Snow under roaming feet
Ice in the ground so deep
I wander to the north
In the freezing storm
Trees of the silent night
Want me to have a hike
Together we shall be
Like a father and a son

One with the woods
The son of the forest
The name from the past
Peace from inside
The silence of the winter
Forever may it last

Clouds in the darkened sky
Know I'm one with the night
What could I need
From the distant world?
Wind blows over my head
Blood of the bear to be bled
It's cold out there
But I don't feel cold

Chorus

Northern lights
Enlighten my way
As I follow the path
Once roamed by my
Mighty forefathers

    General CommentThis song is very strongly influenced by a poem called "Metsän poika" written by a Finnish author Aleksis Kivi. It goes something like this: "Metsän poika tahdon olla, sankar' jylhän kuusiston." = "I want to be the son of the forest, the hero of the mighty spruce woods".
