Wings

Author Comments

So, I wanted to start constructing my own language, mainly for literary and lyrical purposes. I translated Erin Hanson's poem, 'Wings' into my own language, which for now, let's just call Jordian. Wanted to experiment with some autotune too at the end, which was fun!

Lyrics:

Ela venitana enam barana fora
Mirana asi na la sora
Kiraka por la tsubana
Are to eyo ela i vuna

Ela'ni ansay dora la tera aki
Pen vinay i la teri
La vimana no gravija
Konta tyonta ela aja

I la tera ela'ni o pesa
I o pesa, la tera
Ela velana i esta o anya
De ela'ni nomi o nina

Y quai ela'ni vitana marioneta
Ela'wa pera toyo la filana
De por nyt ela'ni nomi yumiya
No emayama ela tsubana

Translation:

She stretches her arms out
Stares up at the sky
Wishing for the wings
That could teach her to fly

She's trapped on the earth here
Feet tied to the ground
The forces of gravity
Keep pushing her down

To the world she's one person
To one person, the world
She wants to be an angel
But she's only a girl

And though she's life's puppet
She'll break all the strings
But for now she's just dreaming
Of earning her wings
