Tuleloits (also known as The Invocation of Fire) is a song performed, written and produced by Kerli, sung, for the first time, at Pühajärve Jaanituli 2018. A "loits", as Kerli herself said, "is a sacred song in ancient Estonian witchcraft, sung to bring about anything the practitioner wishes, to worship or to thank deities and nature". Throuh Kerli's Instagram story, two member of her family (probably her mother, Piret, and her sister, Eliisa) can be seen providing studio vocals for the song. The song is included in her third studio album Shadow Works.

Background and writingEdit

Through an Instagram post, Kerli said that she had the intention to sing, at Pühajärve Jaanituli 2018, a "loits" to "the fire spirits to harness their power of warming one's soul and cleansing outdated energies". Since she couldn't find any "loits" that fit her desire, she wrote a new one. While describing the writing process, Kerli stated:

While dancing around to a shamanic drumbeat and invoking: "rise up, rise up, little spark" in my Moon Temple, I suddenly noticed thick smoke moving through the trees towards the house. I had lit the woods on fire and it took me many hours covered in soot and many buckets of water to put out the flames.[1]

LyricsEdit

Original versionEdit

Sädemeke, sädemeke
Tõuse tuhast, heledake
Sädemeke, sädemeke
Tõuse tuhast, heledake

Kasva nagu minu vägi
Avane kui minu süda
Kasva nagu minu vägi
Avane kui minu süda

Tõuse, tõuse kõrgemale
Paista, paista kaugemale
Tõuse, tõuse kõrgemale
Paista, paista kaugemale

Lahvata taevakaareni
Kirga mailma ääreni
Lahvata taevakaareni
Kirga mailma ääreni

Põrmusta mu valukehad
Valgusta mu varjukohad
Põrmusta mu valukehad
Valgusta mu varjukohad

Kuivata need silmakesed
Põleta muremõtted
Kuivata need silmakesed
Põleta muremõtted

Puhasta mis ära olnud
Vabasta, mis pole veel tulnud
Puhasta mis ära olnud
Vabasta, mis pole veel tulnud

Uueks uueks uueks mind tee
Anna mulle jõud enda seest
Uueks uueks uueks mind tee
Anna mulle jõud enda seest

Tulelooma pimedusse
Kullakuma tumedusse
Tulelooma pimedusse
Kullakuma tumedusse

Valgust igasse meelekesse
Soojust igasse hingekesse
Valgust igasse meelekesse
Soojust igasse hingekesse

Ja nii on

English translationEdit

Little spark, little spark
Rise from the ashes, the right one
Little spark, little spark
Rise from the ashes, the right one

Grow with my power
Open with my heart
Grow with my power
Open with my heart

Lift higher
Shine further
Lift higher
Shine further

Burst to the edge of the sky
Radiate to the edge of the world
Burst to the edge of the sky
Radiate to the edge of the world

Destroy my pain bodies
Light up my shadows
Destroy my pain bodies
Light up my shadows

Dry these little eyes
Burn these thoughts of worry
Dry these little eyes
Burn these thoughts of worry

Cleanse what has been
Release what is yet to come
Cleanse what has been
Release what is yet to come

Make me new
And give me your force
Make me new
And give me your force

Blazing light into the darkness
Gold shine into the blackness
Blazing light into the darkness
Gold shine into the blackness

Light into very mind
Warmth into every soul
Light into very mind
Warmth into every soul

And so mote it be
