​Farin uttan at verða vekk

This song is by Valravn and appears on the album Koder på snor (2009).

Renn áðrenn sólin søkkur
Yvir land og hav
Blytt leikar barnalyndi
Dimmist millum fjøll

Litirnir villast
Reytt sýnist svart
Hvitar skjúrtur flóta
Báturin er farin

Stillisliga tær drukna
Men kastast tó móti bjørgum:


Deyð uttan at verða deyð
Farin uttan at verða vekk

Skip ið bjarga manni
Ferðast yvir ókend mørk
Kyss villa kroppin
Við einum hjarta sum eingin kann temja

Deyð uttan at verða deyð
Farin uttan at verða vekk

English translationEdit

Run before the sun sets
On land and sea
Soft is a child’s mind
Mountains soon in darkness clad

Colours all in disarray
Red seems black
White shirts are floating
The boat is gone

Quietly, they are drowning
Yet thrown against the cliffs

Dead without being dead
Gone without being away

Ships that save someone
Sailing across the unknown desert
Kiss the savage body
With a heart that no one can tame

Dead without being dead
Gone without being away
