A Summer Night

Published July 4, 2012 by Dreamreflector

I have really fell in love with this song by the Finnish band Pariisin kevät (literally “The Spring in Paris”) called Kesäyö – A Summer Night. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5yEKTR9ygI It really has the perfect atmosphere for my summer, as it is beautiful, but a bit melancholic. Here are the lyrics translated in English by me, and some of my photographs fitted for the theme C: Please enjoy!

A Summer Night

I sat in the twilight

a moment started that

felt like it would never end.

The silence arrived to me for a while

arrived like a creature and yelled:

“Don’t be afraid of the world!”

We sat together for a while

and the space was looking at us.

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

I wake up on a beach,

the night is brighter than the day

the spots of light in the sky

glide to the morning

I have forgotten, from where I came here

I cloak myself in the cloak of oblivion.

But I remember squadrons,

that flew to the horizon.

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

INTERLUDE

I sit in the twilight

I am still waiting for the moment that never ends.

I wish the silence would arrive

and tell me how everything disappears eventually.

I see the lights in the sky

And shivers run down my back.

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

And outside, a summer night

it rained tears on faces

And out side, a summer night

it rained on faces

 

And this is me enjoying the summer night ;D

And a dream quote for today: “When a person truly desires something, all the Universe conspires to help that person realize his dream.” ^^

Things I am going to do someday vol 1

Published April 20, 2012 by Dreamreflector

At some point in their life, I think everyone gets to a point where they reflect on their past experiences and decide what more there is to be done in life. I have done something like that today. But because I feel I have so much to say about these, I am going to do several posts (don’t know how many yet, we’ll see) about what I want to do in life. And I am going to write about one or two things per post, depending on how much I have to say about them. Hope you enjoy reading these, and maybe find some things that you too want to do. Or maybe you have done some of these already! If you have, I would love for you to comment about it. Okay here we go!

  • Get married

I think for those of you who have bared with me a while longer, this is something rather obvious, and it has been that way for me too. True love, for which I miraculously still have faith for, to me demands marriage. But of course, marriage itself as a goal would be stupid. There’s no point in marrying someone just to get married. So that’s why I need an other goal.

  • Fall in love

That’s probably even more obvious to you :D But it’s true. I don’t feel the need to present much argument for this. I’ve never met a person who hasn’t wanted to fall in love. Sure we all have moments when we think, fuck love, but sooner or later we’ll still end up wanting to feel it. I’m really not that into rap music, but this Finnish rap song really has a cute take on love. The artists are Leijonamieli and Putkimiehet (Literally The lion mind and the plumbers) and the song is called “Laulu sadepäivän varalle” (A song for in case of a rainy day) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rr4Jca-V9s. Enjoy the sound of Finnish C:

 

Here are the lyrics in English, translated by me:

Sometimes it rains, sometimes it shines, this is my song for in case of a rainy day.

 

CHORUS:

This is my song for in case of a rainy day

I know I won’t stay alone

Something great was missing

The direction of the wind of my life changed

I can see the sun already

 

What is the thing for which sake you have resorted to desperate acts

The thing for which sake there has been war and murder

But without it one is so very frustrated

What is the thing who cuddles you and to whom you unload your sorrows

The thing that makes you think “what the f**k”

since because of it both your eyes and jaw drop.

Many people have to search it from deep down

To ask it from the above in their nightly prayers

Young people search for it, it supports in the midst of worry

It brings out the most sensitive side in the toughest of men

Everybody searches it, some will never find it

It puts down the arrogant, and raises up the humble

It is thrown away in anger

It gets you to collect seven flowers under your pillow on midsummer night

When I look at it I see so many d*mn good things

that to describe it I need Dave’s big pen

CHORUS

Now she sleeps next to me, burrowed in my armpit

At her most beautiful with the shape of the pillow pressed on her cheek

It’s the feeling of togetherness on dark nights

when both my soul and body tingle under her touch

when she came to visit me for the first time

she gave coloured pencils to my black and white world

causing a never-ending beating of my heart

forcing me to seek an answer to the question

Why me

Why did it choose me, a man who has shards of glass in his heart

Why me

Why did it choose me, a man who yesterday painted a devil to a wall

The answer:

It doesn’t ask us time or place

It gets our priorities straight, it renews us

It was lost, but has now come back

It’s the worlds greatest feeling -being in love!

CHORUS

This is probobly my favourite part

For so long the sun rose black

you’re heart starts to hurt when you walk alone in the darkness for long enough

thinking, won’t these days give me any light at all

That’s when I saw a flash from the sun under the gray sky

I want to believe in faith and build it with you

In the middle of the storm you stood, at the end of a rainbow

S**t piles up but that too I can all carry

When I’ve got someone next to me, with whom to divide the burden

CHORUS x2

Phew, that was it. And this is one of the reasons why I normally don’t like rap music. The lyrics are soooo long. Hope someone had the patience to read those through, because there are many great points in it about love.

A dream quote for today: ” Dreams get you into the future and add excitement to the present.” ^^
