"Hoppípolla" as written by Jon Thor Birgisson, Orri Pall Dyrason, Georg Holm and Kjartan Sveinsson....
Brosandi
Hendumst í hringi
Höldumst í hendur
Allur heimurinn óskýr
Nema þú stendur

Rennblautur
Allur rennvotur
Engin gúmmístígvél
Hlaupandi inn í okkur
Vill springa út úr skel

Vindurinn
Og útilykt af hárinu þínu
Ég anda eins fast og ég get
Með nefinu mínu

Hoppípolla
I engum stígvélum
Allur rennvotur (rennblautur)
I engum stígvélum

Og ég fæ blóðnasir
En ég stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandic)

Og ég fæ blóðnasir
Og ég stend alltaf upp

    General CommentTranslation:

    "Jumping in Puddles"

    Smiling
    Spinning 'round and 'round
    Holding hands
    The whole world a blur
    But you are standing
    Soaked
    Completely drenched
    No rubber boots
    Running in us
    Want to erupt from a shell

    Wind in
    An outdoor smell of your hair
    I hit as fast as I could
    With my nose

    Hopping into puddles
    Completely drenched
    Soaked
    With no boots on

    And I get nosebleed
    But I always get up
    (Hopelandic)

    And I get nosebleed
    But I always get up
    (Hopelandic)





    i really like this song... it's really pretty... it's one of those songs that'll make you happy when you want to be happy and sad when you want to be sad... if that makes any sense at all...

    General CommentIt's funny because I don't understand a word he's saying, but i feel like i know the meaning of the song. The way the song is built. It's in the movie Children of Men which I can wait to see. It's probably a little bit because of the song...

    General CommentThe lyrics translated to english sounds a bit funny, but if you watch the music video they make perfect sense.
    The song is beautiful, with an equally beautiful music video.
    I'm majoring in gerontology (caring for the elderly)
    and the video for this song almost brought me to tears...seeing the elderly run around like young children again, regaining their youthful vigor and grace....absolutely beautiful.

    Song MeaningWhen I hear this song all I picture, in terms of its meaning, is two lovers standing, oblivious to all the negativity that they are surrounded by - all they know is that as long as they have each other they can get through anything and everything life throws at them. This song is full of so much positivity and hope and everytime I hear it I'm filled with optimism and I burst into tears. I'll definately be walking down the aisle to this song...

    "Brosandi
    Hendumst I hringi
    Holdumst I hendur....."

    I think I'm gonna cry....

    General Commentthe lyrics translated sound a bit goofy but this song has so much hope embedded in it and it just makes me so happy every time i listen. Saw them do this one live and Jonsi played a semi-hollow bass so we had a 2-bass song and it was pretty fantastic.
