I  AM  LEAVING

   Music: Maini Sorri

   Lyrics: Barbara Helsingius

   Orig. lyrics: Marjo-Riitta Oksanen

   Arranged by Jaakko Viitala

   DVD Produced by Kerstin Svanberg 

1. Snow on the ground, snow all around

where we buried the past and the feelings we found.

Storms in the night, prayers for light,

wishes for wonders to make wrong turn right… 

CHORUS: I may long for your touch once tender

but don’t think I’ll ever surrender.

I must try the taste of living

among those warm and forgiving,

I must change the ice for fire,

see the sun and feel desire —

Now I’m leaving….Yes,I’m leaving…Oh I’m leaving…

I am leaving. 

2. Doubt in the air, mem’ries we share…

Truth or illusion? I really don’t care!

This is my way, right or astray

I’ll manage, I’ll make it or else I must pay…

 

CHORUS: I may long for your touch once tender

but don’t think I’ll ever surrender.

I must try the taste of living

among those warm and forgiving,

I must change the ice for fire,

see the sun and feel desire —

Now I’m leaving… Yes, I’m leaving…Oh, I’m leaving…

I am leaving… I am leaving…

 

                     

On TV6 in USA

24/04/09

Maini SorriOne of my songs was aired on TV6 in USA last Sunday, it was a song from my first album from 1998,  Sånger om livets årstider (Songs of the seasons of life). The video was The Best of Sweden. I am very happy about it.

But that was not enough. A song from the compilation album Shine on 2 with 20 Swedish bands featuring me, that I have promoted quite a lot, was also played on TV6 last Sunday. The song that was aired was  Send them away with a cabincruiser with Touchline. The video was Rail Runner from New Mexico.

Isn’t that great? It really made my day.

A new video

You are very welcome to check up my video Lähden yksin  (I Am Leaving). It is produced for TV6 in USA and has been aired on TV6 twice. It took 5 months to produce the video because there is both winter and summer on it. For English lyrics,  see topdown. I think you will like the Swedish nature. The views are from nere my hometown. 2007 was a rainy summer. Look at those dark coulds towards the end of the video! It was not easy to find a suitable day for filming, it was always raining some part of the day.

I AM LEAVING

Snow on the ground,

snow all around,

where we buried the past

and the feelings we found.

Storms in the night,

prayers for light,

wishes for wonders

to make wrong turn right.

Chorus:

I may long for your touch once tender,

but don’t think I’ll ever surrender.

I must try the taste of living

among those warm and forgiving.

I must change the ice for fire,

see the sun and feel desire.

Now I’m leaving, 

Yes am leaving,

Oh I’m leaving,

I am leaving.

 Doubt in the air,

mem’ries we share,

truth or illusion?

I really don’t care.

This is my way

right or astray,

I’ll manage I’ll make it

or else I must pay.

Chorus:

I may long for your touch once tender…

Sold out!

Maini Sorri Northern lightsI heard on Swedish radio P2 for a while ago that the compilation CD featuring me Musalista 14 was sold out in December already! It was released in November! It is great. My song is number 3, Lähden yksin. Musalista 14 is available again on www.sr.se/butik Musik.

One of my songs was aired on TV6 in USA last Sunday! The video during my song was amazing views on Preikostolen in Norway, not a place for those who are afraid of  hights, including me! A Norwegian singer was singing during the second half of the video.
