Translating Finnish

So 'cause I can’t find the foreign language boards anymore, figured I’d ask for a translation here (obviously don’t trust on-line ones). It’s a song (presumably in Finnish, as it’s sung by Nightwish). Thanks to whoever can translate.

Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan

Kerran vain haaveeni nähdä sain
En pienuutta alla tähtien tuntenut

Kerran sain kehtooni kalterit
Vankina sieltä kirjettä kirjoitan

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Sinussa maailman kauneus
Josta kuolema teki minusta taiteilijan

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Oman taivaan tänne loin
Anna minun päästä pois

Mabatsekker, but thanks for posting it on the main forum, since I’m curious as to the lyrics of the song…

Go, go, gadget Google!

<center>“Death Makes an Artist”

Only once I could see my dream
Didn´t feel the smallness under the stars
Once I got bars in my cradle
As a prisoner I write a letter from there

My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am
In you is the beauty of the world, of which death made me an artist
My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am

My own heaven I created here
Let me get away
My own heaven I created here
Let me get away

(checked several sources)

Yeah, that’s about right. Carry on.

You also might’ve heard that Turunen and the rest of the group made up. And nothing else I know.
