Carry me awry...








The sun is old on water
Yearling flakes keep whirling by
"Carry me awry"

Collapsing breaths discover
Turning hope, new-boarded highs
Receding howls dew the skies

Closing eyes recover
Amber light in wintry bed
"Can you pull me under the cold, charred sea?"

Whispered words of summer
Fallen ode, a bawling bless,
Serenades the water and carries me anew.

In softest air, a stutter
steers the heart away from the bane,
leaves the lasting sorrow and carries me anew.

by Ólafur Arnalds





We said goodbye


hello my love

it's getting cold on this island
i'm sad alone
i'm so sad on my own
the truth is
that we were much too young
and now I'm looking for you
or anyone like you



we said goodbye
with a smile on our faces
now you're alone
you're so sad on your own
the truth is
that we run out of time
and now youre looking for me
or anyone like me...

So far ...

So far from who I was
From who I love
From who I want to be

So far from all our dreams

From what love means
From you here next to me


So far from seeing hope
I stand out here alone
Am I asking for too much?

So far from being free
Of the past that's haunting me
The future I just can't touch

And if you take my hand
Please pull me from the dark
And show me hope again

We'll run side by side
No secrets left to hide
Sheltered from the pain

Muddy Waters

We are kneeling at the river’s edge and tempting
All the steps to follow closer right behind
Is it only when you feel a part is empty?
That it’s gnawing at the corners of your mindI will ask you for mercy
I will come to you blind
What you’ll see is the worst me
Not the last of my kind
In the muddy water we’re falling
In the muddy water we’re crawling
Hold me down
Hold me now
Sold me out
In the muddy waters we’re falling
It is not clear why we choose the fire pathway
Where we end is not the way that we had planned
All the spirits gather 'round like it’s our last day
To get across you know we’ll have to raise the sand
I will ask you for mercy
I will come to you blind
What you’ll see is the worst me
I'm not the last of my kind
In the muddy water we’re falling
In the muddy water we’re crawling
Holds me down
Hold me now
Sold me out
In the muddy water we’re falling (falling, falling, falling...)
Don’t fail me now
Put your arms around me and pull me out
I know I’m found
With your arms around me, oh save me now
In the muddy water we’re falling
In the muddy water we’re crawling
Holds me down
Hold me now
Sold me out
In the muddy water we’re falling

You let down...

So I might...
But would you like to take on me
Make an exception
When there's less to remain of me
So make an exception

Well it's the same thing
I cannot consider and maybe 
I'm chasing the night so I can find rough bones and bitter diamonds
Let it find you
I wanted the right so you gave me a fever in the measure of a kind
Rough stones and bitter diamonds

Shouldn't want you to need (It's you)
Shouldn't want you to need (It's you)
Shouldn't want you to need (It's you)
Shouldn't want you to need (It's you, it's you)
So I might...
But would you like to take on me
Make an exception
When there's less to remain of me
So make an exception

You let down
Well it's the same thing
I cannot consider and maybe 
I'm chasing the night so I can find rough stones and bitter diamonds

Shouldn't want you to need (It's you)
Shouldn't want you to need (It's you)
Shouldn't want you to need (It's you)
Shouldn't want you to need (It's you, it's you)

You let down
So I might...
But would you like to take on me
Make an exception
When there's less to remain of me
So make an exception
