"The Singer" as written by and Teitur Lassen....
I always had the voice, and now I am a singer

The audience grows silent, when I open up my mouth

I sing the words i've written every night before a crowd

As if I was a poet, or some legendary mind

They wonder what I'm doing, up there on the stage

They stare at my posture, and say I speak so well

I sing about my loneliness, and in return they thank me

I'd never meant to be a singer, but I'm slowly getting used to the idea

I'm part of this whole moment, that people come to see

They drive for seven hours from all across the country

We raise our voice in unison at the end of the show

People break into tears for reasons I don't know

They just want to understand me, and I sing too be loved.

    General Commentas I hear it:

    I'm part of this whole movement, that people come to see
    They drive for seven hours, from all across the country
    We raise our voice at unison at the end of the show
    People break into tears for reasons I don't know
    They just want to understand me, and I sing to be loved.

    Anyway beautiful song

    General CommentI've found the correct version:

    I always had the voice and now I am a singer. The audience grows silent when I open up my mouth. I sing the words I’ve written every night before a crowd. As if I were a poet or some legendary mind. They wonder what I’m doing up there on the stage. They stare at my posture and say I speak so well. I sing about my loneliness and in return they thank me. I had never meant to be a singer. But I am slowly getting used to the idea. I am part of this whole movement that people come to see. They drive for seven hours from all across the country. We raise our voice in unison at the end of the show. People break into tears for reasons I don’t know. They just want to understand me and I sing to be loved.
