Silence will be defeated, by a single voice

Stig & Gustav: both good with Swedish & English!

My best Swedish friend Gustav – who actually reads this website – has translated “En Enda Röst”, the song I mentioned in an earlier post. It was a wonderful surprise to open my email this morning and see the email from him.

I’ve played this song over 20 times last night and today. The repeat function on Windows Media Player comes in very handy sometimes 😉 It seems somehow wonderful that I can now understand the lyrical meaning of the song after all these years. Sometimes the little nice things that happen in our lives are the things that keep us going. (Thanks again Gustav!)

En Enda Röst / A Single Voice – Karin Glenmark and Dana Dragomir

There was a time
When heaven above was constantly blue
And there were no doubts that we could reach all we had dreamed
We saw a world where love, hope and belief walked hand in hand
We might smile at that sometimes, but have not forgotten
The dream we carried still gives us strength,
when more shadows appear

All wide seas
All seas on earth
Somewhere a beach
Somewhere, some beach
A light in the dark
You can see far from land

Rain falling down
Rain falling down
Puts out the thirst of the land
Lets everything live

We shall win
Silence will be defeated, by a single voice

There was a time that seemed too pure and innocent
We did it all for peace and calmness
But that was a long time ago
A sun goes up
turning nights for eternity
And it doesn’t close its eyes for our reality
Seeing it time and time again

In another light
A stone added to another stone
can be turned into something more than just a stone wall

All wide seas
All seas on earth
Somewhere a beach
Somewhere, some beach
A light in the dark
You can see far from land

Rain falling down
Rain falling down
Puts out the thirst of the land
Lets everything live

We shall win
Silence will be defeated, by a single voice

We shall win
Silence will be defeated, by a single voice
