    General CommentI know these lyrics are Hopelandic, but I hear Jonsi saying "look at you sigh". The phrase itself sounds sad, but the way says it, it seems happier. Kinda like he is in awe of this person because they are sighing of contentment. :)

    General Commentyes, it is :) true that Jónsi (from Sigur Rós) signs something, but these "lyrics" dont mean anything . listen to sigur rós then you will understand it :)

    General Commentjonsi's not saying anything, it's his signature "hopelandish," which is essentially gibberish that sounds good. as a huge fan of sigur ros, i was psyched when i started exploring the album leaf and found jonsi on this song.

    unfortunately, it kind of sounds like jonsi's saying, "shoeside, lookout, shoeside," but of course it's only hopelandish.

    General Commentso does anybody know of any songs that sound similar to this one? how it's incredibly mellow, but also kind of sad? i'm not a huge album leaf fan, so idk if this is what the majority of their stuff sounds like, but i am in love with this song now. if anyone has any advice for similar things, please let me know!

    General CommentYou guys might like this. It definitely describes how I feel about the song. How effective can it be when you think he's saying "shoeside, lookout"?
