"Dolphin" as written by and Kim/rybak Bergseth....
Drifting along
Where am I to go
The purpose in me
Sadly I don't know

Who'll take my hand
I'm sailing in the sand
Nothing to enjoy
Feeling quite destroyed

But I know a magic dolphin
Swimming above the world
And in my dreams it promised me
That someday I'll find my girl

No one to love
No one to lose
All by myself
This is what I choose

Lovers everywhere
Why should I even care
Will I ever change
That would sure be strange

But I know a magic dolphin
Swimming above the world
And in my dreams it promised me
That someday I'll find my girl

She has the taste of silver
Cute shiny eyes of love
And until I find that girl of mine
I have a friend above
Yes, I have a friend above

'Cause I know a magic dolphin
Swimming above the world
And in my dreams it promised me
That someday I'll find my girl

She has the taste of silver
Cute shiny eyes of love
And until I find that girl of mine
I have a friend above
I have a friend above
Yes, I have a friend above

    My Interpretationi think it is a marvelous song about a boy/man who has not (yet) found his dreamgirl.
    he tries to convince himself that he does not need one.
    (all by myself...this is what i choose)
    OR...
    he is just waiting for the RIGHT one, and does not want to waste time fooling around with girls that just aren't IT for him. which is a respectfull aspect - i think.

    but all along he keeps on hoping and dreaming and fantasizing.
    a dolphin that swims above the world is not something that exists...but maybe it is a methaphore for a guardian angel?
    one that flies over the world...having a better overview on all things and people on earth.
    knowing more than his protege knows.
    and the man is putting his fate in this one... trusting him, that " one day he will find his girl".

    i think, this song is about real and deep love and trust in your own fate and your guardian angels. and maybe God...although i think some people would be offended if someone would compare God with a dolphin.

    on the other hand...dolphins are the sweetest creatures on earth. they do not destroy the planet. they are intelligent. can be playfull. can be carefull. (know if a woman is pregnant and will be carefull with her belly) Dolphins are known to have saved people from sharks and carried them towards safety when they were drowning.
    personally...i don't think God would be offended if someone would compare him with such a wonderful creature...
