Sigur Rós – Ára Bátur

Really beautiful- such a feeling of authenticity…

The band are Icelandic and the lyrics are in this language.

Þú reyndir allt
Já, þúsundfalt
Upplifðir nóg
Komin með nóg
En það varst þú sem allt
Lést í hjarta mér
Og það varst þú sem andann aftur
Kveiktir inní mér

Ég fór, þú fórst

Þú rótar í
Tilfinningum
Í hrærivél
Allt úti um allt
En það varst þú sem alltaf varst
Til staðar fyrir mann
og það varst þú sem aldrei dæmdir
Sannur vinur manns

Ég fór, þú fórst
[hopelandic]

Þú siglir á fljótum
Yfir á gömlum ára
Sem skítlekur
Þú syndir að landi
Ýtir frá öldugangi
Ekkert vinnur á
Þú flýtur á sjónum
Sefur á yfirborði
Ljós í þokunni

[hopelandic]


You tried everything
Yes, a thousand times
Experienced enough
Been through enough
But it was you who let everything
Into my heart
and it was you who once again
Awoke my spirit

I parted, you parted

You stir up
Emotions
In a blender
Everything in disarray
But it was you who was always
There for me
and it was you who never judged
My true friend

I parted, you parted

You sail on rivers
With an old oar
Leaking badly
You swim to shore
Pushed the waves away
But to no avail
You float on the sea
Sleep on the surface
Light through the fog
