Abandoned – music and photo

Here’s another one of my songs. This one is called «Forlatt», which means abandoned / left behind. This song was recorded at a jam session with Knut & Even. I’ve added the lyrics in Norwegian with an English translation.

Norwegian lyrics – Forlatt:

solen har gått ned
fuglene har sluttet å synge
blomstene har visnet
og mannen i månen er død og begravet

det hele ble mørkt
den dagen du forsvant
det ble stille å være aleine
skyene kom og dekket til himmelen

som morgendugg ved soloppgang
forsvant du fra meg
og nattens beskyttende himmel
skjulte seg i lyset

og nattens beskyttende himmel
skjulte seg i lyset


English translation – Abandoned:

the sun has set
the birds are no longer singing
the flowers have wilted
and the man in the moon is dead and buried

it all became dark
the day you disappeared
it was quiet to be all alone
clouds came and covered the sky

like morning dew at sunrise
you vanished from me
and the protective sky of the night
went hiding in the light

and the protective sky of the night
went hiding in the light

    • Thanks. I must add that the lyrics sound a bit more poetic in Norwegian than English. Unfortunately I don’t have any Hardanger Fele (fiddle) in any of my songs… But, I do have some songs that would have sounded a lot better with a fiddle in them.
