Yesterday I weaved a crown from branches
Threw it into the sea, did not place it on my head
The book told of an old friend
Having died during a journey
These days are short and getting shorter
Still, or because of it I feel something growing

Now stories are washed to the ocean with the stream
It brings the leaves of fall and the great flood of spring

Did you want to teach me this
Is this what I wanted to see
As we walked in the dark fearfully
And freezing all the way to the beach
There is no moon on the sky but at least there are stars
It's still simmer but soon it will be autumn

Hey, if you forget everything
Then I will be back
I'll take my share
Tacking the stream of August

Hey, if you forget everything
Then I will be back
I'll take my share
Tacking the stream of August

In the morning I found on the sand
Traces of lovemaking
A campsite and empty bottles
Something strange, like blood
How long must one come here to get something
Was it you or, I don't think I remember, care

Now stories are washed to the ocean with the stream
It brings the leaves of fall and the great flood of spring

As you look with both eyes
There is only dance, nothing else
But to get there
You must traverse the endless kilometers
On the ocean shore foam swims, birds bevel the water
It's still night but soon it will be morning

Hey, if you forget everything
Then I will be back
I'll take my share
Tacking the stream of August

Hey, if you forget everything
Then I will be back
I'll take my share
Tacking the stream of August

Hey, if you forget everything
Then I will be back
I'll take my share
Tacking the stream of August

Hey, if you forget everything
Then I will be back
I'll take my share
Tacking the stream of August

Original (Finnish) PencilEdit

Eilen kruunua oksista punoin
Heitin mereen, en laskenut päähäni
Kirjassa kerrottiin vanhan ystävän
Kuolleen kesken matkaa
Nämä päivät on lyhyitä, lyhyemmiksi käyvät
Silti tai juuri siksi tunnen että jokin kasvaa

Nyt tarinat huuhtoutuvat mereen virran mukana
Se tuo syksyn lehtiä ja kevään suurta tulvaa

Tämän halusitko minulle opettaa
Tämänkö tahdoin nähdä
Kun kävelimme pimeässä peläten
Ja viluissamme aina rantaan asti?
Taivaalla ei kuuta näy, onhan silti tähdet
On vielä kesä mutta kohta on syksy

Hei, jos unohdat kaiken
Silloin tulen takaisin
Otan osani
Luovin elokuun virtaa

Hei, jos unohdat kaiken
Silloin tulen takaisin
Otan osani
Luovin elokuun virtaa

Aamulla löysin hietikolta
Rakastelun jäljet
Nuotiopaikan ja tyhjät pullot
Jotain tummaa niin kuin verta
Vieläkö kauan tänne täytyy tulla jotain hakemaan?
Olitko se sinä, vai...? En taida muistaa, välittää

Nyt tarinat huuhtoutuvat mereen virran mukana
Se tuo syksyn lehtiä ja kevään suurta tulvaa

Kun katsot molemmilla silmillä
On vain tanssi, ei mitään muuta
Mutta päästäksesi sinne
Sinun on kuljettava loputtomat kilometrit
Meren rannassa vaahto ui, linnut viistää vettä
On vielä yö mutta kohta on aamu

Hei, jos unohdat kaiken
Silloin tulen takaisin
Otan osani
Luovin elokuun virtaa

Hei, jos unohdat kaiken
Silloin tulen takaisin
Otan osani
Luovin elokuun virtaa

Hei, jos unohdat kaiken
Silloin tulen takaisin
Otan osani
Luovin elokuun virtaa

Hei, jos unohdat kaiken
Silloin tulen takaisin
Otan osani
Luovin elokuun virtaa
