Mellom bakkar og berg ut med havet
Heve nordmannen fenge sin heim
Der han sjølv heve tuftene grave
Og sett sjølv sine hus oppå deim

Han såg ut på dei steinute strender
Det var ingen, som der hadde bygt
Lat oss rydja og byggja oss grender
Og so eiga me rudningen trygt

Han såg ut på det bårute havet
Det var ruskut å leggja utpå
Men det leikade fisk med i kavet
Og den leiken den ville han sjå

Hill nordmann

Fram på vinteren stundom han tenkte
Gjev eg var her til evig tid
Og når nordljoset skinner i frå oven
Blir hans stålhjerte fylt med grusom savn

    General CommentAvery beautiful song, with a interesting meaning...
    Here is the translation:

    Between Hills And Mountains

    Between hills and mountains out by the sea
    The norseman have found his home
    Where he himself have digged the foundations
    And himself has placed his houses upon them

    He stared out on the stone-covered shores
    There was noone, who there had built
    Let us clear a place and build farms
    And then we will safely own the clearing

    He stared out at the waves on the sea
    It was rough to embark out there
    But fish played down in the bustle
    And that playing he wanted to see

    Hail norseman

    In the winter he seldom thought
    If only I were here forever
    And when the northern lights shines from above
    His steelheart is filled with grusome longing
