"Andvari" as written by Jon Thor Birgisson, Orri Pall Dyrason, Georg Holm and Kjartan Sveinsson....
You saw the whole
You sighed oh no oh life
You sighed all for
You sighed oh no
You sighed only should I
I know
I love you
You saw no one for
You don't know I would
You
You don't love you
You don't know, how could
You don't know I would
You
You don't know you

    General Commentits sung in 'Hopelandic' which im pretty sure is the lead singers made up language that he sometimes sings in. I thought it sounded so much like english i wrote down what i thought he was saying if he was singing in english and it came out like this:

    You saw the whole
    You sighed oh no oh life
    You sighed all for
    You sighed oh no
    You sighed only should I-
    -I know
    I–love–you
    You saw no one for
    You don't know I would
    You…
    You don't love you
    You don't know, how could
    You don't know I would
    You…
    You don't know you


    sweet, eh? kinda sums on the feeling of the song.

    General Commentmy sis doesn't think so... but i think it sounds like he's saying "i love you" at least five times in the song. even though he's singing in hopelandic.

    General Commentsnogger--

    yup that's totally what it sounds like. my favorite part in the song is when it sounds like he's saying:

    "i know...
    i--love--you..."

    General CommentAndvari is a dwarf, I think, in Norse myth, who forges a cursed ring.

    General Commentthe end of this song is one of my favorite pieces of music from any band. the way the melody sweeps back and forth until it finally stops. it's a beautiful sound, it makes me think of rocking slowly to a peaceful sleep after a long, sorrow-filled day.

    General CommentThe song is beautiful. Like sortilequs it's the type of song to listen to after a long hard day, and you just drift to sleep with it.

    Snogger's description is kind of cool. Makes you almost wish that is what was really sung.

    Oh music, how I love thee
