    Default Sigur Ros lyrics/translations/meanings

    hey gang...

    anyone know of a site that has the translations or possible meanings of Sigur Ros songs?

    or does anyone know them at all?

    any help would much appreciated.

    No lyrics, no meaning. That's the point.





















    right?

    I thought that for the untitled album, they kinda invented their own language, Hopelandic or something. Lyric pages blank so you can interpret however you like.

    Other stuff is mostly Icelandic though I think, found a few translations (not sure how great incredibly accurate they are, but still) from this site:

    thanks for that, jsam.

    and yeah, I must agree that not-knowing what the lyrics mean kind of does add to the suspense and experience. just makes you want to hear more. but i was always curious about some of them.

    oh, and i would kill to hear them play "untitled 6/ebow" life. i can only imagine how...amazing.. that would be

    No problem! They are an incredibly unique and awesome band.

    I think hearing "Hoppipolla" live would destroy my soul with its beauty.
    "Untitled 4/Njosnavelin" = ditto
