Aamun Kuiskaus - AMV and Lyrics Translation

Holy hell, I just uploaded an AMV today! How long has it been?! I've been working on this one for quite some time, the longest I've worked on one AMV really. Not that this was particularly hard to make or anything, there just happened to be many obstacles on the way of making it - that's all. My editing program wouldn't work during the hot weather, had to find alternative versions of Dog Days since the one I had did not convert properly, general lack of time and so forth. xD Hopefully it won't take this long for me to release my next one - one can only hope, haha.

So anyways, this AMV is for a friend of mine who was the most sad to see me go when I left the United Kingdom last May. I made it in order to show her that I am not leaving her behind. Without further ado, here is the video. Enjoy!

Next I shall share with you my translation of the lyrics, but first I want to point out a couple of choices I made when I translated them. The literal meaning of "kyllä se jää kantaa" would be "the ice will surely carry you", but that didn't seem like a good way to put it in English so I went with "the ice will hold".  The next line I took some liberties with was "tiedät mä sua seuraan", which would literally be something like "you know I follow you" or "you know I am following you", but the first sounds like Tarzan speak and the second sounds stalkerish so I went with "you know I'll follow you". Since Finnish doesn't state future actions in a different way from the present like English does, that is quite as right as the other options. ^^

On a random side note that has nothing to do with my translations - I find the ice thing really funny in the lyrics. I mean, it's a really nice metaphor, but when you think about it literally it's a bit odd. Like, would you really trust someone who says "yeah yeah the ice will hold go on ahead before me" when about to journey on top of the ice of a frozen lake? Sounds more like a person who wants to make sure they themselves don't fall into the lake by having their friend act as the guinea pig. x'D Ahahaha.

Well that's it for my comments. Enjoy the lyrics!

Aamun Kuiskaus
(Original)
Stella
Whisper of the Morning
(Translation)
Stella
Toiset päivät ovat parempia
kuin toiset
kyllä sen ymmärrät
kovin paljon on myös

itsestäs kiinni
miten tämänkin
kuvan värität

Mene edeltä kyllä se jää kantaa
ole rauhassa

tiedät mä sua seuraan
kyllä se jää kantaa

sulje jo silmäsi

Tunne kuinka tuuli
sun kasvoillesi maalaa värin uuden
ei ole hätä

ääni jonka kuulet
on aamun kuiskaus

hiljaa se sut herättää

Kovin helppoa on vajota hetkiin
joissa tunne on valhetta
sielusi kadotat vain öisiin retkiin
syntyy syviä haavoja

Sano sana ja tiedät

mä tuun vastaan
ole rauhassa vielä mä sua seuraan
kyllä se jää kantaa

nyt kuule mun lauluni

Tunne kuinka tuuli
sun kasvoillesi maalaa värin uuden
ei ole hätä

ääni jonka kuulet
on aamun kuiskaus

hiljaa se sut herättää

Mene edeltä kyllä se jää kantaa

Mene edeltä kyllä se jää kantaa

Mene edeltä kyllä se jää kantaa
Sulje jo silmäsi

Tunne kuinka tuuli
sun kasvoillesi maalaa värin uuden
ei ole hätä

ääni jonka kuulet
on aamun kuiskaus

hiljaa se sut herättää

Tunne kuinka tuuli

Maalaa värin uuden

Ääni jonka kuulet
on aamun kuiskaus

hiljaa se sut herättä

Mene edeltä kyllä se jää kantaa
Some days are better
than others
This you understand
Very much also depends
on yourself
on how you colour
even this picture

Go on ahead, the ice will hold
be at peace
you know I'll follow you
the ice will hold
now close your eyes already

Feel how the wind
on your face paints a new colour
Don't be alarmed
the sound you hear
is the whisper of the morning
it wakes you quietly

It's easy to sink into moments
where the emotion is a lie
your soul you lose on nightly trips
deep wounds are created

Say the word and you know
I'll meet you halfway
be at peace, I follow you still
the ice will hold
now hear my song

Feel how the wind
on your face paints a new colour
Don't be alarmed
the sound you hear
is the whisper of the morning
it wakes you quietly

Go on ahead, the ice will hold

Go on ahead, the ice will hold

Go on ahead, the ice will hold
Now close your eyes already

Feel how the wind
on your face paints a new colour
Don't be alarmed
the sound you hear
is the whisper of the morning
it wakes you quietly

Feel how the wind

Paints a new colour

The voice you hear
is the whisper of the morning
it wakes you quietly

Go on ahead, the ice will hold
