Palovana Lyrics

7. Palovana
Salatuli, virvatuli
Piilos', kätkös' käpäjävi
Varron varsin polttamasta
Hipiätäin palonarkaa!

Vedet haihtuu kastuissani
Maatki palaa juostessani
Hurmeenhurja mielein velloo
Annan palaa, loihin liekin!

Vauhtiin pä äsen, mustaks' muutun
Loimusiuhke, palovana
Tuiske tuulen hurjan
Liikun, hyörin, vihmon, pyärin!

Katso, katso
Katso, katso

Katso, katso
Katso, katso
Tuiske tuulen hurjan

Lauhtuu ilma, kuolleeks' muutun
Marrasmaaksi, hiillokseksi
Synnyin tulikipunasta
Kuolen valoma**lassa!

[English translation:]

Inner Fire

Secret fire, inner fire,
Burning hidden and concealed
I am careful not to burn
My vulnerable skin

The waters will evaporate when I get wet
Earth burns as I run
My mind raging in flames
I let it burn, I create the flames!

I gather speed, I turn to black
I am the blazing flame, I am the inner fire
As a swirling fierce wind
I move, bustle, spit and turn!

Look, look
Look, look
My power
My power!
Move, move
move, move
with me
with me!

Air cooling down, I turn dead
Turn to dead ground, turn to embers
I was born from a spark
I will die in the underworld of light

[Korpiklaani note:
This song is about the inner flame, which burns inside us all and allows us to do whatever we desire. It is also connected to the ancient Finnish shadow soul, ihte, which was believed to burn like a flame as well.]
