Heyr Himna Smiour

Heyr himna smiður | Hear, Heavenly Creator (An Icelandic Hymn)

Heyr, himna smiður, hvers skáldið biður.
Komi mjúk til mín miskunnin þín.
Því heit eg á þig, þú hefur skaptan mig.
Eg er þrællinn þinn, þú ert drottinn minn.

Guð, heit eg á þig, að þú græðir mig.
Minnst þú, mildingur, mín, mest þurfum þín.
Ryð þú, röðla gramur, ríklyndur og framur,
hölds hverri sorg úr hjartaborg.

Gæt þú, mildingur, mín, mest þurfum þín,
helzt hverja stund á hölda grund.
Send þú, meyjar mögur, málsefnin fögur,
öll er hjálp af þér, í hjarta mér.

English Translation:

Listen, smith of the heavens, what the poet asks.
May you softly come unto me with your mercy.
So I call on thee, for you have created me.
I am thy servant; you are my Lord.

God, I call on thee to heal me.
Remember me, mild one, most we need thee.
Drive out, o king of suns, generous and great,
every human sorrow from the city of the heart.

Watch over me, mild one, most we need thee,
truly every moment in the world of men.
Send us, son of the virgin, good causes.
All aid is from thee, in my heart.

-Kolbeinn Tumason

Jesus, Take the Wheel

She was driving last Friday
On her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve

Going home to see her mama and her daddy
With the baby in the backseat

Fifty miles to go, and she was running low
On faith and gasoline

It’d been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind, and she didn’t pay attention
She was going way too fast

Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass

She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn’t even have time to cry

She was so scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus, take the wheel
Take it from my hands
‘Cause I can’t do this on my own

I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
And save me from this road I’m on

Jesus, take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop

She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Sleeping like a rock

And for the first time
in a long time
She bowed her head to pray

She said, I’m sorry for the way
I’ve been livin’ my life

I know I’ve got to change

So from now on tonight

Jesus, take the wheel
Take it from my hands
‘Cause I can’t do this on my own
I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
And save me from this road I’m on

Oh, Jesus, take the wheel

Oh, I’m letting go
So give me one more chance

Save me from this road I’m on
From this road I’m on

Jesus, take the wheel

Oh, take it, take it from me

Oh, why, oh

-Carrie Underwood

A Million Reasons

Dear God,

I just need one good one to stay.

Sincerely,

C.

You’re giving me a million reasons to let you go
You’re giving me a million reasons to quit the show
You’re giving me a million reasons
Give me a million reasons
Givin’ me a million reasons
About a million reasons

If I had a highway, I would run for the hills
If you could find a dry way, I’d forever be still

But you’re giving me a million reasons
Give me a million reasons
Givin’ me a million reasons
About a million reasons

I bow down to pray
I try to make the worst seem better
Lord, show me the way
To cut through all his worn out leather
I’ve got a hundred million reasons to walk away
But baby, I just need one good one to stay

Head stuck in a cycle, I look off and I stare
It’s like that I’ve stopped breathing, but completely aware
‘Cause you’re giving me a million reasons
Give me a million reasons
Givin’ me a million reasons
About a million reasons

And if you say something that you might even mean
It’s hard to even fathom which parts I should believe
‘Cause you’re giving me a million reasons
Give me a million reasons
Givin’ me a million reasons
About a million reasons

I bow down to pray
I try to make the worst seem better
Lord, show me the way
To cut through all his worn out leather

I’ve got a hundred million reasons to walk away
But baby, I just need one good one to stay

Baby, I’m bleedin’, bleedin’
Stay
Can’t you give me what I’m needin’, needin’
Every heartbreak makes it hard to keep the faith
But baby, I just need one good one
Good one, good one, good one, good one, good one

When I bow down to pray
I try to make the worst seem better
Lord, show me the way
To cut through all this worn out leather
I’ve got a hundred million reasons to walk away

But baby, I just need one good one, good one
Tell me that you’ll be the good one, good one
Baby, I just need one good one to stay

-Lady Gaga

Sad Love Story

Without you, would my day be all right?
Just thinking like this; I’m in pain.

Even the day our love first came.
Even the day we first kissed.
As if they never happened,
I have no choice but to erase them.

Now I feel as if I know what love is.
If I can’t live without you; it wasn’t love.

Let’s never meet again.
Words of breaking up only comes back.

I miss you a lot.
I really miss you.
If your heart is all right, I have no choice but to send you away.

Meet someone kind and good.
Be happy now…
It must really be the end.

How you are doing?
I’m curious because I love you.
Because I loved you,
I must restrain myself.

I must send tears because, by tomorrow, you won’t be there.

I miss you a lot.
I really miss you.

If your heart is all right, I have no choice but to send you away.

Meet someone kind and good.
Be happy now…
It must really be the end, my love.

-Cho Eun

All I Want for Christmas

There is just one thing I need.

I don’t want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing I need

I don’t care about those presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you… you…

Is you…

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even wish for snow
No, I’m just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

There’s no sense in hanging stockings
There upon the fireplace, ’cause
Santa here won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day

I just want you here tonight (Here tonight)
Holding on to me so tight
Boy, what can I do?
You know that all I want for Christmas is you

And all the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children’s
Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing
I can hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won’t you bring me what I really love?
Won’t you please bring my baby to me?

I don’t want a lot for Christmas (Christmas)
This is all I’m asking for
No, I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
You know that all I want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas is you

Hmm…

-Mariah Carey

Born to Die

My,
Oh me!
My…

Feet don’t fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh my heart it breaks, every step that I take
But I’m hoping at the gates, they’ll tell me that you’re mine

Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on a Friday night
Can you make it feel like home, if I tell you you’re mine?
It’s like I told you, honey

Don’t make me sad
Don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough, and the road gets tough; I don’t know why

Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words, this is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die

Lost, but now I am found
I can see that once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn’t find
All the answers, honey

Don’t make me sad
Don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough, and the road gets tough; I don’t know why

Keep making me laugh,
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words, this is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Don’t make me sad
Don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough, and the road gets tough; I don’t know why

Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come on, take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die

We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die

-Lana Del Rey

Rose

My love is like a crimson rose
It may be beautiful, but with time

all these sharpened, pointed, thorns’ll hurt you deep inside

My love is like a crimson rose
It may be fragrant now, but with time

the closer that you get, the more you’ll hurt inside

Stop looking at me with those eyes now, I’m really hating the way they stare
Don’t like the way you talk, about love so easily (oh no no no no no)
And if you wanna take my heart, you gotta take all my pain as well

One day, you’ll feel the hurt, of all the thorns left in my life (oh no no no no no)

Don’t trust in me too much
You don’t know me all that much
So just run away, run away

I said, ooh (I said, ooh)

Don’t love me anymore
You don’t know me anymore
I said run away, run away

Don’t come closer, now

Yeah, you’re cocky and confident, it hurts me to say
That it hurts me to see you, act a fool in this way
Every step that you take, full of confidence and faith

Got me lookin’ away, such a pity, a waste

Emotion? A luxury, folly, excess
Love? Obsession’s best friend
So run away, just run away

Cause you and I must come to an end

Every rose has its thorn
Every rose has its thorn

Every rose has its thorn

Don’t trust in me too much
You don’t know me all that much
So just run away, run away

I said, ooh (I said, ooh)

Don’t love me anymore
You don’t know me anymore
I said run away, just run away
Don’t come closer now

-Lee Hi

Hello, Vietnam

Tell me all about this name, that is difficult to say.
It was given me the day I was born.

Want to know about the stories of the empire of old?
My eyes say more of me than what you dare to say.

All I know of you, is all the sights of war.
A film by Coppola, the helicopter’s roar.

One day, I’ll touch your soil.
One day, I’ll finally know your soul.
One day, I’ll come to you.
To say hello… Vietnam.

Tell me all about my color, my hair, and my little feet
That have carried me every mile of the way.

Want to see your house, your streets. Show me all I do not know.
Wooden sampans, floating markets, light of gold.

All I know of you, is the sights of war.
A film by Coppola, the helicopter’s roar.

One day, I’ll touch your soil.
One day, I’ll finally know your soul.
One day, I’ll come to you.
To say hello… Vietnam.

And Buddhas made of stone watch over me.
My dreams, they lead me through the fields of rice.
In prayer, in the light… I see my kin.
I touch my tree, my roots, my beginning…

One day, I’ll touch your soil.
One day, I’ll finally know your soul.
One day, I’ll come to you.
To say hello… Vietnam.

One day, I’ll walk your soil.
One day, I’ll finally know my soul.
One day, I’ll come to you.
To say hello… Vietnam.
To say hello… Vietnam.
To say xin chao… Vietnam.

-Marc Lavoine

Man,

You are beside me, I’m part of you now
Love of my life, this moment, was made for us somehow…
Where did you come from, and how did it start?
Was it a star from heaven that brightened up my heart?

That light, keeps shining on me
Since you walked into my life
You’re here, and now I can see
Whatever it takes, take care of me

Oh man, don’t make me cry
Don’t let it die,
‘Cause deep inside I really know
That, after you, what would I do?

So man, don’t ever go, I need you so
This love, this feeling’s gonna grow
I love you,
I do

That light keeps shining on me
Since you walked into my life,
You’re here, and now I can see
Whatever it takes, take care of me

Oh man, don’t make me cry
Why don’t we try
‘Cause deep inside, I really know
That after you, what would I do?

So man, don’t ever go, I need you so
This love, this feeling’s gonna grow
I love you
I do

I love you
‘Cause deep inside, I really know
That after you, what would I do?

So man, don’t ever go, I need you so
This love, this feeling’s going to grow
I love you,
I do…

-Agnetha Fältskog

Late at Night, When All the World is Sleeping…

Late at night when all the world is sleeping,
I stay up and think of you.
And I wish on a star,
That somewhere you are, thinking of me too.

‘Cause I’m dreaming of you tonight
Til tomorrow, I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about, you and me.

Wonder if you ever see me, and I
Wonder if you know I’m there?
If you looked in my eyes,
Would you see what’s inside?
Would you even care?

I just want to hold you close
But so far, all I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day, and the courage to say
How much I love you.
(Yes I do)

‘Cause I’m dreaming of you tonight
Til tomorrow, I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about, you and me.

Corazon, I can’t stop dreaming of you,
No puedo dejar de pensar en ti.
I can’t stop dreaming.
Como te nesesito
I can’t stop, dreaming of you.
Mi amor, como te extrano

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can’t believe
That you came up to me and said, “I love you”
I love you too

Now I’m dreaming with you tonight
Til tomorrow, and for all of my life
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming with you, endlessly
