Viorar Vel Til Loftarasa

Album: Agatis Byrjun (1999)
  • Ég Læt Mig Líða Áfram
    Í Gegnum Hausinn
    Hugsa Hálfa Leið
    Afturábak
    Sé Sjálfan Mig Syngja Fagnaðarerindið
    Sem Við Sömdum Saman

    Við Áttum Okkur Draum
    Áttum Allt
    Við Riðum Heimsendi
    Við Riðum Leitandi
    Klifruðum Skýjakljúfa
    Sem Síðar Sprungu Upp

    Friðurinn Úti
    Ég Lek Jafnvægi
    Dett Niður
    Alger Þögn
    Ekkert Svar
    En Það Besta Sem Guð Hefur Skapað
    Er Nýr Dagur

  • Nelson Corbal from BrazilKevin Mckinsey from Clarkston, the song is not about the boys or their struggle. The song was demoed in 98, the album released in 99 and the concept of the video was only developed in 2001. The lyrics are beautiful, but they are not about the boys - sorry to spoil your dellusion.
  • Miguel from Caracas, VenezuelaJonsi's voice is great!..There's an English translation in YouTube...It might help you understand what the lyrics mean...

  • Yaniv from Ta, Israelit's an amazing song. i don't really like the effect on the vocals though
  • Kevin Mckinsey from Clarkston, MiThe music video for this (which is also amazing but VERY depressing, look it up) is about 2 gay boys in a very religious community that decide to come out one day. The song if you can find a good translation (suprisingly its hard to find an Icelandic to English translation [sarcasm]) is all about their strugle and how someday they will be together. This is personally one of my favorite songs, even if i can't understand a word hes saying. The meaning of the song is so much more then the words, and i love it.
