“Just as I am proud to be born in Belarus, I am also proud to live in Norway. Here’s a story for you:

This year Norway celebrate 200 years of independence. For that occasion, for the celebration on 17th of may, I was supposed to write a classical song. And the Norwegian broadcaster said they wanted the Solli-Tangen brothers to sing it. So I spent several weeks to write this arie, which is about our love for Norway. And when I showed the song to the broadcasters, they said (as always) that the song was too different from Fairytale (d’uh, classical songs usually are..). So they cancelled our performance. Yeah, story of my life. But when someone gives me lemons, I have to find the juice machine to make some sweet lemonade.

And although this is just a fan video, I think you can hear how amazingly talented Emil Solli Tangen is, and what I meant writing this song. This is my love for Norway.”

LYRICS (double English and Norwegian) :

Det mørkner. Det mørkner som aldri før.
It darkens. It darkens as never before

I blandt, jeg gråter stille i mitt hjem.
Sometimes I cry, silently in my home

Jeg søker, jeg søker din kjærlighet
I seek, I seek your love

i fjell og daler, der er vi to.
in mountains and valleys, where we are two

Når allting faller, gi meg din ro.
When everything falls, give me your peace

I dine hender svinner min smerte.
In your hands my pain finds relief

Brusende elver fyller mitt hjerte.
Running rivers fills my heart

Mørket får komme. Gi meg din styrke.
The darkness may come. Give me your strength

Hva enn som hender, deg vil jeg dyrke.
Whatever happens, you I want to cherish

Om jeg vil falle, møte min ende.
If I may fall, meet my ending

Så la meg segne i dine hender.
Then let me lay down in your hands

Jeg minnes, jeg minnes en barndomsvår
I remember, I remember a childhood spring

hvor alle drømmer skulle få sitt liv.
where all dreams should wake to life

De visner, de visner slik drømmer gjør.
They wither, they wither like dreams do

Og snart vil regnet hviske våre spor.
And soon the rain will erase our marks

Men du vil alltid forbli vår jord.
But you will always remain our ground

I dine hender svinner min smerte.
In your hands my pain finds relief

Brusende elver fyller mitt hjerte.
Running rivers fills my heart

Mørket får komme. Gi meg din styrke.
The darkness may come. Give me your strength

Hva enn som hender, deg vil jeg dyrke.
Whatever happens, you I want to cherish

Om jeg vil falle, møte min ende.
If I may fall, meet my ending

Så la meg segne i dine hender
Then let me lay down in your hands
