Finnish
Varjoon alta polttavan auringon
Varjoon tieltä tuskien päästävä on
Suojaan alta hehkuvan taivahan
Suojaan luokse vihreän keitahan

Yllä auringon hohde
Alla on polttava maa
Mielessä varjoisa kohde
Jonne yksin kulkea saan

Varjoon alta polttavan auringon
Varjoon pian pois minun päästävä on
Suojaan alta hehkuvan taivahan
Suojaan alle lehdistön tuuhean

Varjoon valokeilojen julkeain
Varjoon tahdon seurasta kuuluisain
Suojaan luota polttavan rakkauden
Suojaan luokse kaipauksen hiljaisen

Rauhaton eloni on vain
Kaiken nyt kestää mä saan
Jo mainetta kylliksi sain
Rauhaan mä kaipailen vaan

Varjoon valokeiloista tahdon pois
Varjoon yksinäistä vaikk’ siellä ois
Suojaan tahdon viimeinkin rauhaisaan
Silloin vasta onneni vihdoin saan

Translation
Into the shadow from under the burning sun
I must get into the shadow from the street of pain
To safety from under the glowing sky
To safety, to a green oasis

Above is the shining sun
Underneath is the burning ground
In the mind the shady resort
Where I can go by myself

Into the shadow from under the burning sun
I must soon get away, into the shadow
To safety from under the glowing sky
To safety under bushy leaves

Into the shadow from the shameless spotlights
I want to get into the shadow, away from the company of the famous
To safety, away from the burning love
To safety of silent longing

My life is just restless
Now I have to stand everything
I already got enough fame
Rest is all I miss

I want to get into the shadow, away from the spotlights
Into the shadow, although it would be lonely there
I want to go to the peaceful safety, eventually
That’s when I could finally find my happiness
