Oteveel -- Let it Go

There was a challenge posted on Facebook to translate this song, and I'd been trying actively to NOT for a while.  It was stuck in my head pretty strongly, but I was so determined, haha.

Oh well, here it is. :D

I've got to stop creating new content for a while in order to focus on what already exists, so that I can get it ready for the Antho in April.  Sandic is ten years old this year!!

This song HAS been sung, but it comes out so very badly that I can't even. :p Sorry guys.

"Let It Go"

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I’m the Queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door

I don’t care
What they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiralling in
frozen fractals all around

And one thought crystallizes
like an icy blast
I’m never going back,
The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
When I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

“May I let it go”

On the mountain at night, the snow is glowing white
all the footprints are hidden
a kingdom of those in solitude,
apparently I am its ruler.

The wind howls like the storm inside of me
I lacked the strength to carry it (inside) despite the attempt

Don’t open yourself to them, don’t let them know
you must appear good forever
hide yourself, don’t let them know
but look, they know

I let it go, I let it go now
I’m not keeping anything more of it (inside)
I let it go, I let it go now
the attempt has been cut off! (“slammed shut”)

completely unimportant (is)
their opinion of me
let the storm show itself,
the cold does not bother me!

curious, the strength of distance
which makes difficulty small
the fears which were my rulers
rule nothing anymore!

I will know the fullness of my power,
I will supersede it, break the boundaries
There is no right or wrong or rules for me
O freedom!

I let it go, now I let it go,
I’m part of the wind and sky
I let it go, now I let it go
you will not see me sad.

Here I am
and I will remain
let the storm go on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
my soul is turning in frozen fractals all around
at my desire everywhere
everything can be turned to ice
I will not go back
it’s going to be forgotten!

I let it go, now I let it go
I will shine like the sun
I let it go, now I let it go
that sickly-perfect one is gone

I stand here
in the light of dawn*
let the storm GO OOOOOOON
the cold never bothers me.

Keei Dalkain -- Son of Man

Another song. I did this one while waiting for a guy to come help me with something. He never showed up, but the song remains!

I didn't sing this one. Here's the original English version.

Maybe someday I'll take the time and collect all the songs in Sandic and sing them and put them in a collection, or something. Mn.

"Son Of Man"

Oh, the power to be strong
And the wisdom to be wise
All these things will
come to you in time

On this journey that you're making
There'll be answers that you'll seek
And it's you who'll climb the mountain
It's you who'll reach the peak

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

Though there's no one there to guide you
No one to take your hand
But with faith and understanding
You will journey from boy to man

In learning you will teach
And in teaching you will learn
You'll find your place beside the
ones you love

Oh, and all the things you dreamed of
The visions that you saw
Well, the time is drawing near now
It's yours to claim in all

Son of Man,
A man for all to see.

"The adults' little one"

Power to be strong,
knowledge to act wisely,
they will show themselves to you
when this is done

along this path you are travelling along
you will find secrets
you will go to the top of the mountains
you will climb very high up!

O little one of the adults, listen here
may your soul fly
you will be honorable when this is done
O child, the doing is what gives you strength

Though no one leads you,
and no one carries you along,
Still, (if you act/are) strong and understanding
the weakness will become strength!

You will teach as you learn,
you will learn as you teach,
you will find your place with what you love!

the dreams that showed themselves to you
those you knew before
they are whispering to you in divine inspiration that you should act quickly
quickly, seize everything (you have dreamed)!

O little one,
what is little shows itself to be big / what is unimportant shows itself to be important

Makiamjale: pee -- The Noose

New song. APC, "The Noose"

Yes, is singable. Yes, I sang it. Not sharing just yet. Need to make a good version.

Order of texts: Original English -- Sandic -- English of Sandic

"The Noose"

So glad to see you well
Overcome them, completely silent
Now with heaven's help
You cast your demons out

And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you off your cloud
But I'm more than just a little curious
How you're planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

Recall the deeds as if
They're all someone else's
Atrocious stories
Now you stand reborn before us all
So glad to see you well
And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you to the ground
But I'm more than just a little curious
How you're planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

With your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping
Your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping down [repeated]
Your halo slipping down to choke you now

You seem healed up
You defeated them entirely, bad does not speak anymore
with the help of heaven
you have released your sin

I am not yanking at your halo
onto your neck and
pulling you from the cloud
But I really want to know how to the dead
You will apologize
to the dead

you think of the atrocity
like it is someone else’s
past actions
you stand before us, reborn
you look like you’re perfect
I’m not yanking at your halo
pulling it onto your neck and pulling you into reality
but I really want to know how
you will say sorry to the dead
to the dead

your halo is slippin’ down
your halo is falling…
your halo is slippin’ down
your halo is falling.. now
now your halo is slipping
and it shows (what) you (are)

Se yahl fele: -- I am love

I really do try not to do two. But I know if I don't do this, I'll forget that this was translated and I'll lose the sound file that goes with.

Uuldin otoka -- Miracles Happen (Prince of Egypt)

My sister and I loved this movie when we were little kids. I remember us trying to learn the Hebrew parts and sing along.

We weren't Christian, but the imagery was beautiful and the songs were so catchy that we sang them anyway.

Funny how much songs stick with you, isn't it? I'm 23 now and I still find myself humming this off and on. I haven't seen this movie since I was 13 or 14.

I was watching some Disney songs in Latin the other day and came across this one, and was shocked I hadn't yet translated it. Remedied now!

There is more to this song that I didn't sing. I put it at the bottom. Maybe I'll sing the full thing some other time!

Oh, here's the song.

Order of texts: Original English -- Sandic -- Smooth English of Sandic


Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill

Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

We prayed for many nights
we do not know if anything heard us
in our souls, a song appeared
which we barely understood

behold, we are not afraid
even though frightful things appear
we broke (down) mountains
before knowing it was a possibility

miracles happen
during belief
despite the weakness of hope
it cannot be killed

who knows which (miracles)
will appear
during belief, you will be able to (know)
you'll do it with belief.


Rest of the song:

In this time of fear
when prayer's so often proved in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
to have swiftly flown away

And now I'm standing here
with heart so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say!

During this great fear
prayer apparently does nothing
it does just like a flock of birds
and flies to far away

but here I stand
my soul is joyful for some reason
peace has been found, and I say words
which have been given by inspiration*!

*amal is a word used for divine inspiration and the visions one receives in a trance or during meditation.

A couple of chants.

I was cleaning the house today, and I tend to listen to some upbeat music while doing so. Turns out today is a chant-listening kind of day, so I did.

One of these is an older song- older as in I knew it as a small child and would sing it while playing. The other one is newer.

Also, yes. "In the moonlight" is actually sung that way. I'm not spontaneously being possessed, haha.
