Lyrics


1. Við Gengum Tvö

við gengum tvö, við gengum tvö
í rökkuró,
við leiddumst hljóð, við leiddumst hljóð
um ungan skóg.
þú varst yndi, þú varst yndi
og ástin mín,
og stundin áfeng, stundin áfeng
eins og vín.

við hlýddum tvö, við hlýddum tvö
í húmi ein,
er blærinn kvað, er blærinn kvað
við blöð og grein.
ég var nóttin, ég var nóttin
þögla þín,
og þú varst eina, þú varst eina
stjarnan mín.

á meðan norðurljósin leiftra
um bláan himininn,
þá sit ég ein og þrái
kveðjukossinn þinn.

2. Only A Friend Of Mine

who´s knocking on my front door
it´s just a friend og mine
just an ordinary friend of mine
likes to come around sometimes

it´s only the friend of beggars
only the friend of the poor man
only the friend of justice, true justice
is the friend at my front door

only the friend of little children
only the friend of all the animal
only the friend of the moon and stars
and this little earth of ours
is the friend at my front door

only the friend of love
only the friend of hope
only the friend of peaceful resolution
is the friend at my front door

3. Om Jag Vågar

jag känner du tittar på mig
med ditt varma ögonkast
jag vet inte om jag vågar titta på dig
du räcker mig din hand
den smälter in i huden min
jag vet inte om jag vågar röra vid dig
men när solen kommer fram
känner jag din värme i mitt bröst
och en liten stund är jag säker på
att du älskar mig

du leder mig iväg
till ditt vackra drömmarland
jag vet inte om jag vågar följa med dig
du kysser mig på min kind
jag känner dina varma läppar
jag vet inte om jag vågar älska dig
men när solen kommer fram
känner jag din värme i mitt bröst
och en liten stund är jag säker på
att du älskar mig

jag känner du tittar på mig
med ditt varma ögonkast
jag vet inte om jag vågar titta på dig

4. Sweet Sweet Song

i wanted to write you a sweet sweet song
to tell you what was on my mind
i was trying to see the color of your eyes
but sparkling light made me blind

i was trying to write you a sweet sweet song
but no melody crossed my mind
when i saw your eyes in the deep blue night
the right words i could not find

i was trying to write you a sweet sweet song
but i could not find words to describe
the color of your eyes in the sprarkling light
the right words would not come to my mind

i was trying to write you a sweet sweet song
but no melody crossed my mind
when i saw your eyes in the deep blue night
the right words i could not find

your sparkling light made me blind
so right words i could not find

5. Where Are The Angels

you gave it all away you took me home
pearl in the pale moonlight your skin shone
then you whisper in my ear – good sleep my friend
all our love is given and our hearts will mend

we saw the crazy king again with his lies and fear and shame
he was talking about genocide and learning everybodies name
has he really always been this way full of hopeless tomorrows
he´s stolen the sacred key and locked me in sorrow

where are the angels

this old dirt road this grey sky day
sometimes the worlds gets old and i feel so insane
then you whisper in my ear
it´s ok my friend
all our love is given and our hearts will men

where are the angels

6. Mín Móðir

mín móðir hon er sum ein drotning
hon er sum tað vakrasta lag
mín móðir hon er sum ein blóma
hon er sum eitt livandi træ

mín móðir er heim mítt kæra
mín móðir mítt tryggasta stað
mín móðir er bjartasta glæman
hon lýsir mær døkkan veg

mín móðir er sterkasta hondin
trygt heim aftur leiðir hon meg
mín móðir hjá tær eg standi
í hjartanum goymi eg teg

7. Ég Veit Þú Kemur Í Kvöld Til Mín

ég veit þú kemur í kvöld til mín
þótt kveðjan væri stutt í gær.
ég trúi ekki á orðin þín,
ef annað segja stjörnur tvær.

og þá mun allt verða eins og var
sko áður en þú veist, þú veist.
og þetta eina sem útaf bar
okkar á milli í friði leyst.

og seinna, þegar tunglið hefur tölt um langan veg,
þá tölum við um drauminn sem við elskum, þú og ég.

ég veit þú kemur í kvöld til mín
þótt kveðjan væri stutt í gær.
ég trúi ekki á orðin þín,
ef annað segja stjörnur tvær.

8. If I Need You

if i needed you would you come to me
would you come to me for to ease my pain
if you needed me i would come to you
i would swim the sea for to ease your pain

when the nights fall on and the morning is born
the morning is born with the light of love
and you miss sunrise would you close your eyes
and i would bring my heart into you

if i needed you would you come to me
would you come to me for to ease my pain
if you needed me i would come to you
i would swim the sea for to ease your pain

baby´s with me now since i showed him how
to lay his steady hand in mine
who would illagree he is a sight to see
a treasure for the poor to find

9. Mær Leingist

mær leingist mær leingist at fevna teg
mær leingist at teska eg elski teg
hví fórst tú frá mær
kom aftur til mín
fevn meg og teska
eg eri tín

mær leingist at kína títt fagra hár
kom aftur og turka av kinnum hvørt tár
bert vit eru saman
í álvara og gaman
ja so verður alt gott

10. Må Solen Alltid Skina

må solen alltid skina och läka dina sår
må regnet alltid smeka och skölja bort din tår
må lyckan vara vännen din och följa dina spår
och i världens alla stormar jag alltid med dig går
jag alltid med dig går

må lyckan vara vännen din och följa dina spår
och i världens alla stormar jag alltid med dig går
jag alltid med dig går

må solen alltid skina och läka dina sår

11. Trøllabundin

trøllabundin eri eg eri eg
galdramaður festi meg festi meg
trøllabundin djúpt í míni sál í míni sál
í hjartanum logar brennandi bál brennandi bál

trøllabundin eri eg eri eg
galdramaður festi meg festi meg
trøllabundin inn í hjarta rót í hjarta rót
eyga mítt festist har ið galdramaður stóð
