Itkin – Ilmatar, 2000

(Värttinä — “Itkin”)

1: Cry I did for three long years, shedding all my bitter tears,
Then a fourth came and a fifth, I was still crying…
Cry I did my cute eyes out, cry I did and lost my face,
Lost my fair face and my lovely eyes…
Oh if I could only take this year, at least survive this summer,
And the fall with falling leaves, and feel the winter…
I will go to see the night with my worries all in sight,
See the night, to seek the moon seen from the window…
To the dark night I will go, so that my tears won’t be shown,
A dark cloud above my head, above my head…
Chorus: I feel tears rolling down, rolling like a flow of rain,
Wish someone could take my tear, someone could dry my face…
2: I cannot believe it’s true, I cannot believe my eyes,
‘Cause I’m not going to prove whether it’s true.
A hopeless wish brought emptiness, a week’s tracking brought a lie,
A week’s tracking brought a lie, now I am blue…
Chorus 2: I don’t cry when others see me, nor complain when others hear,
Cry my cries all to myself, on the doorstep leave my tears,
Wish someone could take my tear, someone could dry my face,
Why I cry without a reason, why complain about my troubles?
Why I cry whene’er I long, why I worry when I worry…
