Finnish
Aamulla aurinko nousi taivaani kirkasten
Purppurapilvissä sousi täyttymys unelmien

Nyt aurinko laskee länteen
Saapunut ilta jo on
Aurinko laskee länteen
Aurinko rakkaudeton

Uskonut illan en koskaan
Saapuvan äkkiä näin
Kunnes näin sinisen linnun
Lentävän etelää päin

Näin sen ja ymmärsin sen:
Poissa aika on rakkauden
Kun aurinko laskee länteen

Onneni auringon luulin
Taivaalle seisahtuneen
Kunnes näin sammuvan välkkeen
Kuohussa tulisen veen

Näin sen ja ymmärsin sen:
Poissa aika on rakkauden
Kun aurinko laskee länteen
Kun aurinko laskee länteen

Translation
In the morning the sun rose, brightening up my sky
The fulfilment of dreams rowed in the purple clouds

Now the sun sets in the west
The evening has already arrived
The sun sets in the west
The loveless sun

I never thought that the evening
Would arrive so soon
Until I saw a blue bird
Heading south

I saw it and I understood it:
The time of love is gone
When the sun sets in the west

I thought the sun of my happiness
Had halted in the sky
Until I saw a fading sparkle
In the foam of fiery water

I saw it and I understood it:
The time of love is gone
When the sun sets in the west
When the sun sets in the west
