Lyrics transcribed by me

[Verse 1]
Again that night I went to sleep on the balcony
So I may be closer to him
I watched the sky from my bed and began to wait
To see a shooting star go by

[Verse 2]
They say that if you notice somewhere a shooting star
You can wish for anything you want
And to the night sky I whispered a request
I wished the wind to rise up for me now

[Chorus]
Please blow to where my sweetheart is
Play a moment with his hair
Tell him I love him
I long for him
I am waiting for him
Still, still, still
Still, still, still

[Verse 3]
The night was gone but finally I felt life’s breath above
hollering, felt his presence loom
The whisper of a memory stroked upon my cheek
I felt his phantom hand upon my skin

[Verse 4]
No shadow of a doubt, I knew with certainty
That I could fall to slumber like a child
My love and I share the same night’s air
We share the same earth under our feet

[Chorus]
Please blow to where my sweetheart is
Play a moment with his hair
Tell him I love him
I long for him
I am waiting for him
Still, still, ooooh
(Still, still, still)
I am waiting for him
(Still, still, still)

Canadian singer-songwriter Ché Aimee Dorval and producer/multi-instrumentalist Farkosten(Mattias Eklund) came together in 2018 to create this beautiful and haunting rendition of the Finnish pop song “Missä Muruseni On“. Translating the lyrics into English, Dorval croons the words of a woman wishing to connect with a distant lover. The strings and haunting reverberations of synthesizers and electric guitar bring a strength to Dorval’s delivery, as a creeping chord progression carries the song’s melody. Farkosten’s production and the lyrical sentiment work in tandem to form this ethereal cover.
