Hoppipolla – Sigur Rós



hoppipola
spinning in circles
holding hands
the world is a blur
except when you’re standing

.
dripping wet
completley soaked
no rubberboots
running inside of us
wants to burst out of the shell

[Hopelandic – translated from original Icelandic]

 

Hoppipolla

by Sigur Rós

Brosandi
Hendumst hringi
Hldumst hendur
Allur heimurinn skr
Nema stendur

Rennblautur
Allur rennvotur
Engin gmmstgvl
Hlaupandi okkur?
Vill springa t r skel

Vindur
Og tilykt ? af hrinu nu
g lamdi eins fast og g get
Me nefinu mnu

Hoppa poll
engum stgvlum
Allur rennvotur
(Rennblautur)
engum stgvlum

Og g f blnasir
En g stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandish)

Og g f blnasir
En g stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandish)

[English translation from original in icelandic] 

smiling
spinning in circles
holding hands
the world is a blur
except when you’re standing

dripping wet
completly soaked
no rubberboots
running inside of us
wants to burst out of the shell

wind in
and the smell of your hair
i hit as hard as i can
with my nose
jumping into a puddle
wearing no boots
completely soaked (dripping wet)
wearing no boots

and i get a nosebleed
but i’ll always stand up again
(hopelandic)

and i get a nosebleed
but i’ll always stand up again
(hopelandic)
