about

I did some redecorating on my Bandcamp page. Now you can listen to all the songs I´ve published on Bandcamp on one album. These songs have been recorded between years 2008 - 2012. They´re all sung in Finnish. I´ve added some English translations of the lyrics and I´m also preparing to do some re-recordings of these and other songs of mine, and this time I´m going to sing at least some of the songs in English. By the way, all the visual artwork on these pages is either drawn or painted by me or borrowed from photographs taken by my friends. On July 28th. 2013, Kaappo

Track Name: Puutarha (Garden)
GARDEN
I would plant an apple tree, gooseberry bushes, red and white roses and a herb garden.
For you I´d gather fruit and berries, flowers, herbs, all the gifts of the garden.

We are a garden. We are trees.
We are the garden and we are gardeners.

I fall down to the dirty ground. I get hurt again and again. You keep looking at me always so gently. Who has hidden your face from my eyes?

We are a garden. We are trees.
We are the garden and we are gardeners.
Track Name: Sukellus (Dive)
DIVE

Jonain kauniina aamuna tai sateisena yönä
hyppää hevosen selkään tai polkupyörän
Anna sen viedä sinut meren rantaan tai lammen tai järven tai joen

Jätä vaatteesi rannalle
Astu veteen, astu veteen
Kahlaa vähän syvemmälle
Hengitä, hengitä
Hellitä kaikesta
Liu´u veteen, liu´u veteen
Vaivu yhä syvemmälle
Silmät auki, pidä silmät auki
Vielä vesi kantaa sinut pintaan
kellumaan, kellu vaan
Kellu, kellu
Kellu vaan
Track Name: Tanssi (Dance)
DANCE

O, how I wish that we could dance together: Jump up and down, go round´n´round´n´round.
O, how I wish we could embrace each other and I could feel the beating of your heart.

Child of spring
Heart of light
Heart of spring
Child of light

In the woods I make a bed for us
of beautiful flowers, green leaves and soft moss.
Through the night I´m waiting for you.
Will you ever come to me?
Track Name: Saarnintaimi (Ash-tree seedling)
ASH-TREE SEEDLING

Neitonen ja nainen,
joka ei ole ei vanha, ei nuori
ja vanha nainen
istuttaa puuntaimen.

Grow to the sky and to the core of the earth!
Up to the bright white, and down to the blackest of black soil!

Se neito ja minä
suojataan saarnintaimi
talvella kanaverkolla,
ettei jänikset söisi sitä

Grow to the sky and to the core of the earth!
Up to the bright white, and down to the blackest of black soil!

Keväällä vapautan
puuntaimen vankilastaan
Puhjetkoot silmusi!
Yhteytä ilma hengittää

Grow to the sky and to the core of the earth!
Up to the bright white, and down to the blackest of black soil!

Vanha nainen sanoo:
Ei taimi ole kuollut,
vaan latva kuihtunut
Se kasvaa uudelleen

Grow to the sky and to the core of the earth!
Up to the bright white, and down to the blackest of black soil!
Track Name: Unilaulu (Dreamsong)
DREAMSONG

Dream!
Sail!
Fly!
Float!
Wander further beyond the realms!

Dance in the light until the morning will arrive!

A white horse glimmering in the sunlight.
A dandelion on a field glowing in the sunlight.

Dance in the light until the morning will arrive.
