pegar ao vio kyssumst

    General Comment:This has lyrics! - it's from the last verse of Inní Múr Syngur Vitleysingur by Sigur Rós.

    In the original it is

    Minn besti vinur hverju sem dynur
    Ég kyngi tári og anda hári
    Illum látum, í faðmi grátum
    Þegar að við hittumst
    Þegar að við kyssumst
    Varirnar brenndu, höldumst í hendur
    Ég sé þig vakinn
    Ég sé þig nakinn
    Inní mér syngur vitleysingur
    Alltaf þið vaða, við hlaupum hraðar
    Allt verður smærra, ég öskra hærra
    Er er við aða, í burtu fara

    but I think the general slowed down repeated bit cuts out most of it so it's just:

    Illum látum, í faðmi grátum
    Þegar að við hittumst
    Þegar að við kyssumst

    with other bits layered on top.

    Translation:

    My best friend no matter whatever happens
    I swallow tears and breathe hair
    A bad break, we cry in each other arms
    When we meet
    When we kiss
    The lips burning, we hold hands
    I see you waking
    I see you naked
    Inside me a lunatic sings
    Always rushing, we run quickly
    Everything becomes smaller
    I scream louder
    I'm with a shell, going away

    General Comment:I KNEW THIS WAS FROM SIGUR ROS.
    Ugh I feel so relieved now knowing this has been verified haha.
    It was killing me.

    What an odd mix.

    General Comment:There's a short story by Kevin Brockmeier called The Year of Silence. Most likely unrelated, but just a tidbit of information I thought I'd share.
