Grade Six: Sigur Rós - Glósóli

video

Glósóli (pronounced “glow-soul-ih”) means Glowing Soul in Icelandic.

Lyrics - Icelandic

Nú vaknar þú Allt virðist vera breytt Eg gægist út En er svo ekki neitt Ur-skóna finn svo A náttfötum hún I draumi fann svo Eg hékk á koðnun? Með sólinni er hún Og er hún, inni hér En hvar ert þú...Legg upp í göngu Og tölti götuna Sé ekk(ert) út Og nota stjörnurnar Sit(ur) endalaust hún Og klifrar svo út. Glósóli-leg hún Komdu út Mig vaknar draum-haf Mitt hjartað, slá Ufið hár.Sturlun við fjar-óð Sem skyldu-skrá. Og hér ert þú...Fannst mér...Og hér ert þú Glósóli...Og hér ert þú Glósóli...Og hér ert þú Glósóli...Og hér ert þú

Lyrics - English (translation)

Now that you're awake / Everything seems different / I look around / But there's nothing at all / Put on my shoes, I then find that / She is still in her pyjamas / Then found in a dream / I'm hung by (an) anticlimax / She is with the sun / And it's out here / But where are you? / Go on a journey / And roam the streets / Can't see the way out / And so use the stars / She sits for eternity / And then climbs out / She's the glowing sun / So come out I awake from a nightmare / My heart is beating / Out of control... / I've become so used to this craziness / That it's now compulsory / And here you are... / I'm feeling... / And here you are, Glowing sun... / And here you are, Glowing sun... / And here you are, Glowing sun... / And here you are...

Glosoli was originally played during our discussion of color psychology (color's ability to change moods) when we were trying to figure out what song we were going to use for our Spring Concert presentation.
