ANYONE WHO HAD A HEART

Anyone who ever loved
could look at me, and know that I love you
Anyone who ever dreamed
could look at me ,and know I dream of you

Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart
would take me in his arms and love me too
You - wouldn't really have a heart
and hurt me like you hurt me and be so untrue
what am I to do?

Every time you go away
I always say, this time it's goodbye dear
Loving you the way I do
I take you back, without you I'd die dear

Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart
would take me in his arms and love me too
You - couldn't really have a heart
and hurt me like you hurt me and be so untrue
what am I to do?

Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart
would take me in his arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart
and hurt me like you hurt me and be so untrue

Anyone who had a heart
would take me in his arms and always love me
why won't you?


ATLANTIC

Þú veist af allri hlýjunni
þú finnur allan hitan
þú veist að ég elska þig
þú veist ég verð að fara

Ég fer og veiði í matinn
kem aftur hlaðin gjöfum
með bér og fjaðrir og perlur
og litla effelturna

Ég kem og kyssi og kyssi
og kyss'og nudda hálsin
og þegar og þegar ég kem
og þegar og þegar

Þú veist að ég þarnfast þín
þú veist að ég er þín
Ho-oh-oh oh, þú...
a-að ég elska þig
þú veist að ég er þín
Ho-oh, wooh-oh oh
þegar hann kemur
Oh-mey-oh-mey-oh

A-að ég elska þig

 

ATLANTIC

You know of all the warmth
You feel all the heat
You know that I love you
You know that I must go

I go and hunt for food
And come back loaded with meat
With berries and feathers and pearls
And little eiffel towers

I come and kiss and kiss
Kiss and rub the neck
And when and when I come
And when and when

You know that I need you
You know that I'm yours
Ho-oh-oh oh, you...
a-that I love you
You know that I'm yours
Ho-oh, wooh-oh oh
When he comes
Oh-mey-oh-mey-oh

Th-That I love you


BEDTIME STORY

Today is the last day that I'm using words
they've gone out, lost their meaning
don't function anymore

Let's, let's, let's get unconscious honey
let's get unconscious honey

Today is the last day that I'm using words
they've gone out, lost their meaning
don't function anymore

Travelling - leaving logic and reason
Travelling - to the arms of unconsciousness
Travelling - leaving logic and reason
Travelling - to the arms of unconsciousness

Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious

Words are useless
especically sentences
they don't stand for anything
how could they explain how I feel

Travelling travelling - I'm traveling
Travelling travelling - leaving logic and reason
Travelling travelling - I'm gonna relax
Travelling travelling - in the arms of unconsciousness

And inside we're all still wet
longing and yearning
how can I explain how I feel?

Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious

Travelling travelling
Travelling travelling
in the arms of unconsciousness
and all that you've ever learned
try to forget
I'll never explain again


CHARLENE

You've got yourself a-in a fine mess now, Charlene
you're either absolutely mad or you are joking, Charlene

Charlene, I'm crying
so close to you, darling
we're naked and laughing
you shine on my battery, Charlene

I have always adored your witty mouth, Charlene
now would you please be very very rude to them, Charlene

Charlene I'm crying
so close to you darling
we're naked and laughing
you shine on my battery, Charlene

Let me get you out of that lake, Charlene
your dress is red and oh so slippery, Charlene

I guess I have to dry you
dress you and comb you
you're already late
I'll sort you out

Charlene, I'm crying
so close to you darling
we're naked and laughing
you shine on my battery, Charlene



DOMESTICA

Oh boy
where have I put my keys?

I've looked in my pocket
behind the newspaper
and underneath the remote control
and I cannot find where I put it again

Oh boy
I cannot find my keys
I'm far too late

The door is open now
a taxi is waiting there

A phone keeps ringing
I am definitely not going to
pick it up

'Cause
when I grow up
I'm gonna get those fancy keyrings
that you whistle at
and they whistle right back
at you


DOWNTOWN

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
you can always go - downtown
when you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
seems to help, I know - downtown

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
how can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
you can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
so go downtown, things'll be great when you're

Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
there are movie shows - downtown
maybe you know some little places to go to
where they never close - downtown

Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
you'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
happy again

The lights are much brighter there
you can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
so go downtown, where all the lights are bright

Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
we can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
so go downtown, things'll be great when you're

Downtown - don't wait a minute for
Downtown - everything's waiting for you


FOOT SOLDIER

Foot soldier
march ahead
enter the unknown
you will take the first step

Foot soldier
blindfolded
you're babystepping
carefully treading
blindfolded
tread carefully

Conquer the darkness

Into the darkness
foot soldier
and then we'll follow
but you go first
march ahead
but you go first
foot soldier
march ahead

Foot soldier

Who will take the first step?


GENEROUS PALMSTROKE

I am strong in his hands
I am beyond me
on my own i'm human
and I do faults

I do confess
I feel you trickeling
down my shoulders
from above

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

I turn myself in
I give myself up
volunteer
you own me : I'm yours

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

You have to trust it
I'm eternally yours
all that I gave them
I gave to you

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

So needy of comfort
but too raw to be embraced
undo this privacy
and put me in my place

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

Generous palmstroke
the hugest of hugs
undo this privacy
embrace

Embrace me
Embrace me
Embrace me
Embrace me

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

I am strong in his hands
I am above
way beyond me
I.... con...

She's strong in his hands
she is beyond her
on her own she is human
and she does faults


GLOOMY SUNDAY

Sunday is gloomy
the hours are slumberless
dearest, the shadows
I live with are numberless

Little white flowers
will never awaken you
not where the dark coach
of sorrow has taken you

Angels have no thought
of ever returning you
would they be angry
if I thought of joining you?

Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is Sunday
with shadows I spend it all
my heart and I
have decided to end it all

Soon there'll be prayers
and candles are lit I know
let them not weep
let them know that I'm glad to go

Death is no dream
for in death I'm caressing you
with the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessing you

Gloomy Sunday

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
in the deep of my heart here

Darling, I hope
that my dream hasn't haunted you
my heart is telling you
how much I wanted you

Gloomy Sunday



I GO HUMBLE

I go humble
you're so curiously pure
only before you I'm humble

I go humble
you amaze me
only before you I'm humble

I should be arrested
for my emotional stunts
only before you I'm humble

I'm queen of provocation
I wake people up
only before you I'm humble

I go humble
I adore you
only before you I'm humble

I should be arrested
for my emotional stunts
only before you I'm humble



I REMEMBER YOU

I remember you
you're the one that made my dreams come true
a few kisses ago

I remember you
you're the one that said "I love you too,
didn't you know?"

I remember too
a distant bell
and stars that fell
like rain out of the blue

When my life is through
and the angels ask me
to recall
the thrill of them all

I shall tell them : I remember you


IT'S IN OUR HANDS

Look no further
Look no further
Look no further

Cruelest
almost
always to ourselves
it musn't
get any better
off

It's in our hands : it always was
It's in our hands : in our hands
It's all there : in our hands
It's all there : in our hands

Well
now
aren't we scaring ourselves
unecessarily?
aren't we trying too hard?

'Cause it's in our hands
it's in our hands
it's all here : it's in our hands

Look no further
Look no further

It's in our hands : it always was
it's in our hands


JÓLAKÖTTURINN

Þið kannizt við jólaköttinn
- sá köttur var griðarstór
Fólk vissi'ekki hvaðan hann kom
eða hvert hann fór

Hann glennti upp glyrnurnar sinar
glóandi báðar tvær
Það var ekki heiglum hent
að horfa í þær

Kamparnir beittir sem broddar
upp úr bakinu kryppna há
og klærnar à loðinni löpp
var ljótt að sjá

Því var það, að konurnar kepptust
við kamba og vefstól og rokk
og prjónuðu litfagran lepp
eða lítin sokk

Þvi kötturinn mátti' ekki koma
og krækja í börnin smá
Þau urðu að fásína flík
þeim fullorðnu hjá

Og er kveikt var á jólakvöldið
og kötturin gægðist inn
stóðu börnin bísperrt og rjóð
með böggulinn sinn

Hann veifaði stélinu sterka
hann stökk og hann klóraði' og blés
og var ýmist uppi í dal
eða úti' um nes

Hann sveimaði, soltinn og grimmur
í sárköldum jólasnæ
og vakti í hjörtunum hroll
á hverjum bæ

Ef mjálmað var aumlega úti
var ólukkan samstundis vís
Allir vissu' að hann veiddi menn
en vildi ekki mýs

Hann lagðist á fátæka fólkið
sem fékk enga nýja spjör
fyrir jólin - og baslaði og bjó
við bágust kjör

Frá því tók hann ætið í einu
allan þess jólamat
og át það svo oftast nær sjálft
ef hann gat

Því var það, að konurnar kepptust
við kamba og vefstól og rokk
og prjónuðu litfagran lepp
eða lítin sokk

Sum höfðe fengið svuntu
og sum höfðu fengið skó
eða eitthvað, sem þótti þarft
en þad var nóg

Þvi kisa máti' engan eta
sem einhverja flíkina hlaut
Hún hvæsti þá heldur ljót
og hljóp á braut

Hvort enn er hún til, veit ég ekki
en aum yrði hennar för
ef allir eignuðust næst
einhverja spjör

Þið hafið nú kannske í huga
að hjálpa, ef þörf verður á
máske enn finnist einhver börn
sem ekkert fá

Máske, að leitin að þeim sem líða
af ljósskorti heims um ból
gefi ykkur góðan dag
og gleðileg jól

 

THE CHRISTMAS CAT

You know the christmas cat
- that cat is very large
We dont know where he came from
nor where he has gone

He opened his eyes widely
glowing both of them
it was not for cowards
to look into them

His hair sharp as needles
his back was high and bulgy
and claws on his hairy paw
were not a pretty sight

Therefore the women competed
to rock and sow and spin
and knitted colorful clothes
or one little sock

For the cat could not come
and get the little children
they had to get new clothes
from the grownups

When christmas eve was lighted
and the cat looked inside
the children stood straight and red-cheeked
with their presents

He waved his strong tail
he jumped, scratched and blew
and was either in the valley
or out on the headland

He walked about, hungry and mean
in hurtfully cold christmas snow
and kindled the hearts with fear
in every town

If outside one heard a weak "meaow"
then unluck was sure to happen
all knew he hunted men
and didnt want mice

He followed the poorer people
who didnt get any new clothing
near christmas - and tried and lived
in poorest conditions

From them he took at the same time
all their christmas food
and ate them also themselves
if he could

Therefore the women competed
to rock and sow and spin
and knitted colorful clothes
or one little sock

Some had gotten an apron
and some had got a new shoe
or anything that was needful
but that was enough

For pussy should not eat no-one
who got some new piece of clothes
She hissed with her ugly voice
and ran away

If she still exists I dont know
but for nothing would be his trip
if everybody would get next christmas
some new rag

You may want to keep it in mind
to help if there is need
for somewhere there might be children
who get nothing at all

Mayhaps that looking for those who suffer
from lack of plentiful lights
will give you a happy season
and merry christmas


JÓLASVEINAR

Jólasveinar ganga um gólf
með gildan staf í hendi
móðir þeirra sópar gólf
og flengir þá með vendi

Upp á stól stendur mín kanna
níu nóttum fyrir jól
þá kem ég til manna

Upp á stól stendur mín kanna
níu nóttum fyrir jól
þá kem ég til manna

 

CHRISTMASMEN

Yule-lads tread the floors
with a thick staff in hand
their mother sweeps the floors
and spanks them with twigs

On top of a chair my pitcher stands
nine nights before christmas
I head towards mankind

On top of a chair my pitcher stands
nine nights before christmas
I head towards mankind


KARVEL

'Ekki hlusta' sagði ég
þær gefa þér röng skilaboð
þær æfa sig í að and'inní hjartað
bull og vitleysa

Elskaðu alla og "I love you"
og allir hér
og allir hér elska þig

Elskaðu alla og "I love you"
og allir hér
og allir hér elska þig

þú verður að muna að reikna
og skilurðu ekki að framtíðina
og ekki treysa nunnum?

Og sólin sekkur ekki í dag
og aldrei aldrei aldrei aldrei

Elskaðu alla og "I love you"
og aldrei ég
aldrei ég elska þig...

Ó hó!
'stendur djöfullin og kann ekki að reykja
og þegar ferlíkið fer af stað
reyndu að opna
þær æfa sig í að anda inn í hjartað
og djöfullin kann

Elskaðu alla og "I love you"
og aldrei ég
og aldrei ég elska þig
allt sem þú sérð

'Ekki hlusta' sagði ég
og 'ekki hlusta' sagði ég

 

KARVEL

'Don't listen' I said
They are giving you the wrong message
They are practising breathing into the heart
Nonsense and nonsense

Love everyone and "I love you"
And everyone here
Everyone here loves you

Love everyone and "I love you"
And everyone here
Everyone here loves you

You have to remember to calculate
And dont you understand the future
And don't trust nuns

And the sun doesn't sink today
And never never never never

Love everyone and "I love you"
And I never
And I never love you

O ho!
The devil stands and doesn't know how to smoke
And when the huge motherfucker starts moving
Try to open up
They practice breathing into the heart
And the devil knows

Love everyone and "I love you"
And I never
And I never love you
All that you see

Don't listen' I said
And 'don't listen' I said

Keep it closed or you just
My gun down my
Keep your mouth shut, baby

MY SNARE / NATURE IS ANCIENT

It's wet in the middle
with a shell around it
it's called life

It goes wherever it wants to
don't try to predict it
then you'd offend it
it's meant to surprise

Nature is ancient : but surprises us all
Nature is ancient : but surprises us all

Rescue me
from level-head-ness
and the unnecessary luxury of being calm

Nature is ancient : but surprises us all
Nature is ancient : but surprises us all

She's got dark hairs on her head
blonde on her arms
she sneaks up from behind
come on, you deserve it!




NU FLYVER ANTON

Nu flyver Anton
helt af sig selv

Hvad tror du Anton?
bliver drømmene til virkelighed?

Han flyver gennem himlen
og himlen hænger
som en krave
om hans hals

Det er så sort og meget mørkt
imellem sol og måne

Nu flyver Anton

Sa pisser han pa mørkret
og mørkret
bliver til lys

Nu flyver Anton

Sa fik han sit første kys
sit første kys!
med tungen!
tungen
gik som
en pro-pel-ler
woah!

Oooh, nu flyver Anton

 

ANTON IS FLYING

Anton is flying
all by himself

What do you think Anton?
will the dreams become reality?

He flies through the heaven
and the heaven hangs
like a collar
around his neck

It is so black and very dark
between the sun and moon

Anton is flying

So he pisses on the darkness
and the darkness
turns to light

Anton is flying

So he got his first kiss
his first kiss!
with the tongue!
the tongue
went like
a pro-pel-ler
woah!

Oooh, Anton is flying



OTHER SIDE OF THE SUN

Leaving on a boat for beyond the other side of the ocean
bet you in the morning you won't even know I'm gone
Tired of living here in the middle of mixed emotion
might as well be living on the other side of the sun

Leaving with the feeling I don't know how I'm dealing with loving you
though once I knew
the special way
and what to do
to make you stay
forever and ever

Even as I'm leaving I'll never stop believing you are the one
who can make me laugh
and can bring me back
from beyond the other side of the sun

Rolling down the river I hope I can deliver the morning
Wishing on a star for the sun to come out to play
Funny, when it's over you really don't remember the warning
Might as well be living out beyond the Milky Way


PRAYER OF THE HEART

Kyrie
Iisou Christe
Hie Tou Theou
Eleison me

Lord
Jesus Christ
Son Of God
Have Mercy Upon Me


SATISFACTION

I can't get no... satisfaction
I can't get no... satisfaction
and I try , and I try, and I try , and I try
I can't get no... no no no

When I'm drivin' in my car
and the man comes on the radio
he's tellin' me more and more
about some useless information
designed to Fire my imagination

I can't get no - no, no, no
hey, hey, hey - that's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
and I try, and I try , and I try, and I try

When I'm ridin' 'round the world
and I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
and I'm tryin' to make some dough, tell me
baby, better come back, maybe next week
'cause you see I'm on a losing streak
I can't get no - oh, no, no, no

Hey, hey, hey - I can't get no
that's what I say - satisfaction
hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

I can't get no
say hey, hey, hey
I can't get no
say hey, hey, hey
that's what I say


SCARY

He means tomorrow but says "In a bit"
and doesn't show up at all
he sets his watch to a comet's orbit
remembers to forget to call

No courage for love - too scared to be happy
No courage for love - too scared to be happy

I do... do
I do... do

"Your place or mine?" means "Heaven or hell?"
two addresses somewhat apart
his home's dark and spiky, her's clear as a bell
it's over before they can start

No courage for love - too scared to be happy
No courage for love - too scared to be happy

I do.... don't
I do.... don't

And tomorrow passed them by



SHORT TERM AFFAIR

It's a short term affair
you're my children's au-pair
but I just couldn't bear
to keep my hands off you

I was barely eighteen
what you did was obscene
but to me it felt clean
what else was I to do?

The memory still lingers
you're cooking the kids fish-fingers
and ironing

Each morning you'd come down
in your paisley dressing gown
then you'd sing
and the yearning started for a

Short term affair
no intention to stray
I was caught in your snare
but my wife was away
it was so debonair
so I thought what the hey
I knew I couldn't resist

It was a short term affair
you're the man, you're the boss
when I found you right there
like the father I lost
cleaning our silver-ware
so to hell with the cost
right then at once we kissed

You took me to the kitchen
your hands kinda started twitchin'
I felt so shy

Nothing could stop what followed
lucky for me you swallowed
every lie

I know it's all over now
try to be strong somehow
I'll start a brand new life
please, please don't tell my wife
but I won't, I won't stop loving you
please, please don't tell my wife
au revoir, ciao, auf wiedersehen
we must never meet again

Short term affair

SO BROKEN

So broken
in pieces
my heart is so broken
I'm puzzling

Here I go
trying to run ahead of that
heart-break-train
thinking
it will never catch up with me

I'm so broken

I'm trying to land this aeroplane of ours
gracefully
but it seems just destined to crash

I'm so broken

How can
all continuity just vanish away
at one step at a time now baby
I'm so completely unhealable, baby

I'm so broken


SOD OFF

I know I've been tolerant 'til now
but here comes a warning,
there's a very clear line that I'm drawing
and if you cross it

Sod off

If you think I'll let you pull me down to
your third-class communication
and bulldoze over all my sensitivities
you've read me all wrong

Sod off

Things so far have been too perfect
this is the premiere
but oh, how many dress rehearsals
I've been through

Darling this is far too pure and perfect
won't let you corrupt it
sod off
I won't let you ruin this

Sod off


STÍGÐU MIG

Stígðu mig
að eðli
þar sem mikil
hús
velta framm úr
þoku
og gul augu deyja
í endalausum
endalausum
endalausum
samförum

 

STEP ME

Step me
to a nature
where mighty
houses
roll out of
fog
and yellow eyes die
in endless
endless
endless
intercource


SWEET INTUITION

Close your eyes
listen closely
all that you've learnt
try to forget it

Fuck logic, fuck logic
bravo to instinct
and sweet intuition

What makes you tick?
trust your senses
all that you've learnt
try to forget it

Believe in believing
believe in instinct
and sweet intuition, honey

And inside
we're all still wet
longing and yearning
repeat after me:

Fuck logic, fuck logic
bravo to instinct
and sweet intuition
sweet intuition
sweet intuition, honey

VERANDI

Hafandi eyrað í vasanum
hafandi augun í skónum
ástarbréf í maganum
vönd af kossum í munninum

Kyrr!

Hafandi haf af girnd
hafandi loðna löngun um mjaðmirnar
hafandi sjón sem að sér þegar það er slökkt
og gott bil milli fótanna

Kyrr!

 

THE STATE OF BEING

Having the ear in the pocket
having the eye in the shoe
loveletters in the stomach
bouquet of kisses in the mouth

Calm down!

Having an ocean of desire
having a hairy desire around the hips
having eyes that can see in the dark
and too much space between the legs

Calm down!


VÍSUR VATNSENDA-RÓSU

Augun mín og augun þín
ó þá fögru steina
mitt var þitt og þitt var mitt
þú veist hvað ég meina

Langt er síðan sá ég hann
sannlega fríður var hann
allt sem prýða má einn mann
mest af lýðum bar hann

þig ég trega manna mest
mædda af tára flóði
ó að við hefðum aldrei sést
elsku vinurinn góði

  SONGS OF ROSE FROM VATNSENDA

My eyes and your eyes
oh those beautiful stones
mine was yours and yours was mine
you know what I mean

Long is since I saw him
truly fair he was
all that may adorn a man
most of the people carried him

You I long for most of all
heavy with the flood of tears
oh that I never had seen you
dear beloved friend


WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

The hunted look, the haunted grace
the empty laugh that you cultivate
you fall into that false embrace
and kiss the air about her face

Who do you think you are?

The très bon mots you almost quote
from your quiver of literary darts
a thousand or so tuneless violins
thrilling your cheap little heart

Who do you think you are?

My cigarette burns right down to the ash
my coffee cup is unstained
the waiter hovers close at hand
his courtesy strained

Who do you think you are?
I close with my regards
well I'm the red-faced gentleman
caught in this picture postcard

Who do you think you are?

Trying my best to make the best of your absence
though the joke gets tired and sordid
sea-shell hearts get trampled underfoot
punchlines unrewarded

But even at this distance
it's not easy to accept
the vision that I chase returns
when I least expect it

I've fallen from your tired embrace
I kiss the air
around the place
that should be
your face

 


WHY?

Why is Daddy not here?
are you crying?
why?
does he still love me?
will you take care of me?
if you both love me so
why don't you love each other

Mummy's gone missing
and Daddy's on fire
daddy's on fire
daddy's on fire

 

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

You only live twice or so it seems
one life for yourself and one for your dreams

You drift through the years and life seems tame
till one dream appears and love is its name

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone

This dream is for you, so pay the price
make one dream come true, you only live twice

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone

This dream is for you, so pay the price
make one dream come true, you only live twice
