    Default Icelandic to English - Vi gengum tv

    Hi,
    I was wondering if someone could help me by translating this wonderful Faroese/Icelandic ballad by Eivor Plsdttir.

    btw. I'm not sure which one of those languages it is but I'm guessing on Icelandic as I look at it ;O

    VI GENGUM TV

    Vi gengum tv, vi gengum tv rkkurr.
    Vi leiddumst hlj, vi leiddumst hlj um ungan skg.
    varst yndi, varst yndi og stin mn.
    Og stundin feng, stundin feng eins og vn.

    Vi hlddum tv, vi hlddum tv hmi ein.
    Er blrinn kva, er blrinn kva vi bl grein.
    g var nttin, g var nttin gla n.
    Og varst eina, varst eina stjarnan mn.

    mean norurljsin leiftra um blan himininn.
    sit g einn og ri kvejukossinn inn.


    Vi hlddum tv, vi hlddum tv hmi ein.
    Er blrinn kva, er blrinn kva vi bl grein.
    g var nttin, g var nttin gla n.
    Og varst eina, varst eina stjarnan mn.

    mean norurljsin leiftra um blan himininn.
    sit g einn og ri kvejukossinn inn.

    mean norurljsin leiftra um blan himininn.
    sit g einn og ri kvejukossinn inn.


    Thanks very, very much!

    Vi gengum tv, vi gengum tv rkkurr. / We both walked, we both walked in the twilight.
    Vi leiddumst hlj, vi leiddumst hlj um ungan skg. / We were led by the sound, the sound of a young forest.
    varst yndi, varst yndi og stin mn. / You were dear, you were dear, and my love
    Og stundin feng, stundin feng eins og vn. / And the alcohol moments, alcohol moments like wine

    Vi hlddum tv, vi hlddum tv hmi ein. / We both heard, we both heard the dusk
    Er blrinn kva, er blrinn kva vi bl grein. / The tint is said, tint is said to be us on the article
    g var nttin, g var nttin gla n. / I was the night, I was your silent night.
    Og varst eina, varst eina stjarnan mn. / And you were the one, you were my only star.

    mean norurljsin leiftra um blan himininn. / While the northern lights are blinking on the blue sky.
    sit g einn og ri kvejukossinn inn. / I sit then alone, waiting for your greeting kiss.

    Vi hlddum tv, vi hlddum tv hmi ein. / We both heard, we both heard the dusk
    Er blrinn kva, er blrinn kva vi bl grein. / The tint is said, tint is said to be us on the article
    g var nttin, g var nttin gla n. / I was the night, I was your silent night.
    Og varst eina, varst eina stjarnan mn. / And you were the one, you were my only star.

    mean norurljsin leiftra um blan himininn. / While the northern lights are blinking on the blue sky.
    sit g einn og ri kvejukossinn inn. / I sit then alone, waiting for your greeting kiss.

    mean norurljsin leiftra um blan himininn. / While the northern lights are blinking on the blue sky.
    sit g einn og ri kvejukossinn inn. / I sit then alone, waiting for your greeting kiss.

    translation of this song was almost unbearable since it was a google translate and far from right.
