Album: Beneath The Skin (2015)
  • Feel the ocean as it breathes
    Shivering teeth
    See the mountains where they meet
    Smothering me

    As the wind fends off the waves
    I count down the days
    Heavy stones fear no weather

    I find comfort in the sound
    And the shape of the heart
    How it echoes through the chest
    From under the ground

    As the hills turn into holes
    I fill them with gold
    Heavy stones fear no weather

    From the rain comes a river
    Running wild that we create
    An empire for you
    Illuminate there is a river
    Running wild that will create

    An empire for you
    An empire for two
    An empire for you
    An empire for two

    And I paint your body black
    I hide in your hair
    And you're staring back at me
    Like I wasn't there

    As our bodies become stills
    We welcome the fear
    Heavy stones fear no weather

    From the rain comes a river
    Running wild that will create
    An empire for you
    Illuminate there is a river
    Running wild that will create

    An empire for you
    An empire for two
    An empire for you
    An empire for two

    From the rain comes a river
    Running wild that will create
    An empire for you
    Illuminate there is a river
    Running wild that will create

    An empire for you
    An empire for two
    An empire for you
    An empire for two Writer/s: ARNAR ROSENKRANZ HILMARSSON, NANNA BRYNDIS HILMARSDOTTIR, RAGNAR THORHALLSSON
