Translation of the song Í tokuni [Into the Mist] artist Eivør

Faroese

Í tokuni [Into the Mist]

English translation

In the mist

Gangi í tokuni

Walking in the mist

Eina í djúpu kvirruni

Alone in the deep silence

Síggi ongar varðar

Can´t see any cairns

Burtur allir garðar

Gone are all the houses

Rópi men eingin svarar

I call out but no one answers

Inn ímillum gloppini

In between the gaps

Í mjørkaklæddu náttini

In the mist-clad night

Hómi eg skuggar

I sense shadows

Tykist sum okkurt rørir seg har

Seems as though something is moving there

Rópi men eingin svarar mær

I call out but no one answers me

Vinur, vinur sært tú meg?

Friend, friend can you see me

Gangi her í tokuni

Walking here in the mist

Hevur tú reikað líka sum eg

Have you wandered as i have

Í deyðadjúpu kvirruni?

In the silence deep as death

Sást tú gøtuljósini

Did you see the street lights

Lýsa í bygdini?

Shining in the village

Sást tú hvat tey gjørdu har?

Did you see what they did there

Minnist tú hvussu støðan var?

Do you remember what the state of things were

Leitaði nakar eftir mær?

Was anyone looking for me

Vinur, vinur sært tú meg?

Friend, friend can you see me

Gangi her í tokuni

Walking here in the mist

Hevur tú reikað líka sum eg

Have you wandered as i have

Í deyðadjúpu kvirruni?

In the silence deep as death

Hevur tú eins og eg

Have you as I have

Gingið í tokuni

Walked in the mist

Burturvilst frá slóðini

Strayed from the beaten path

Ytst á fjallatromini?

Near the mountain edge

Kennir tú hetta einsemið?

Do you know this loneliness

Vinur, vinur skilur tú meg?

Friend, friend do you understand me

Veitst tú nakran loyniveg?

Do you know any secret path

Hevur tú reikað líka sum eg

Have you wandered as I have

Í endaleysu óvissuni?

in the endless uncertainty

Vinur, vinur skilur tú meg?

Friend, friend do you understand me

Veitst tú ongan loyniveg?

Don´t you know any secret path

Hevur tú reikað líka sum eg

Have you wandered as I have

Í endaleysu tokuni?

In the endless mist
