lyrics

tuskin maltan enää odottaa
tuskin maltan enää odottaa
et sut syliin saan jo nukkumaan
tuskin maltan enää odottaa
tuskin maltan enää odottaa
et sun silmät mua tuijottaa
et sun hennon äänen kuulla saan
enkä pysty varmaan katsomaan
enää muuhun suuntaan ollenkaan
kun pienet kädet mua puristaa

kun susta ekan kerran kerrottiin
mun siskon kuulin myöhemmin sanovan
et rakkautta sulta ei tuu uupumaan
et rakkautta sulta ei tuu uupumaan
jos vain yhden asian saisin luvata
se on et uudestaan ja uudestaan
noi sanat tulee toteutumaan

joka ikisellä tavalla
valmistellaan sulle tässä
kun sä oot taivaan rannalla
viel käpyjä keräämässä

ei sulla huolta tarvi olla
kasvatetaan rakkaut' täällä päässä
kun sä oot siellä taivaan rannalla
viel käpyjä keräämässä

mut ei malteta odottaa
et sun päivä täällä koittaa
ei ehkä enää kauaa
et sua pidellä saan
et sua pidellä saan
et sua pidellä saadaan

loose translation:

i can hardly wait
i can hardly wait
to have you sleep in my arms
i can hardly wait
i can hardly wait
for your eyes to gaze into mine
to hear your delicate voice
and i probably can't look
anywhere else anymore
when your small hands clasp mine

the first time you were talked about
afterwards i heard my sister say
that you will be so loved
that you will be so loved
and if i can promise only one thing
it is that again and again
those words will come true

in every way
we're preparing here
while you're still on the horizon
collecting pine cones

you don't have to worry about a thing
we'll be growing our love on this side
while you're still on the horizon
collecting pine cones

but we can hardly wait
that your day here comes
not long now
till i have you in my arms
till i have you in my arms
till we have you in our arms

(collecting pine cones on the horizon is a finnish saying for when talking about the time before a kid is born. "you were still collecting pine cones on the horizon when this happened")
