“Stjernen vår” – Alexander Rybak – video and lyrics

“Stjernen vår” (Our star) was performed by Alexander Rybak and Ingeborg Walther for the first time in the Norwegian TV-show “Allsang på grensen” 4.7.2019

“Stjernen vår” is a song from Alexander Rybak’s children’s book “Trolle og den magiske fela” and is written by Alexander and his father Igor.

The night Trolle and Alva became friends there was a star shining brighter than the others. Alva pointed at the star and said: “Let this be our star from now on, and it will always shine for us, no matter how far we are apart”.

The Norwegian lyrics are translated to English by Jorunn Ekre and Anastasia Silakova.

Stjernen vår

Alva:
When everything feels dark and hopeless
and the heart cries silently
look up, our star is shining
and healing all the wounds

Look, it shines just for us
every flower awakens
and soon the darkness will fade away
I’m with you, my friend

Trolle:
There once was a time
when hope was gone
they pushed me away over and over again
I fled from myself
I had no choice

Too late for me to turn back
but then one day you came
and woke all hope again
you called me your friend

Trolle and Alva:
Whatever happens to me
I’ll never forget you
and no mountain can keep us apart
our star shows us the way

And soon the darkness will fade away
I’m with you, my friend

Norwegian lyrics :

Stjernen vår

Alva:
Når alt er mørkt og tomt
og hjertet gråter stumt
se opp, der skinner stjernen vår
og leger alle sår

Se, den skinner kun for oss
der våkner hver en blomst
og snart vil mørket svinne hen
jeg er hos deg, min venn

Trolle:
Det var en gang en tid
da håpet var forbi
de skjøv meg vekk gang på gang
jeg flyktet fra meg selv
jeg hadde ingen valg

For sent for meg å snu
men så en dag kom du
og vekket alle håp igjen
du kalte meg din venn

Trolle og Alva:
Hva enn som hender meg
jeg glemmer aldri deg
og ingen fjell får skille oss
vår stjerne viser vei

Og snart vil mørket svinne hen
jeg er hos deg, min venn

Arad Aria Feat. Alexander Rybak – “Bade To” with lyrics

Alexander Rybak and Arad Aria (Iranian singer, composer and producer) have collaborated and released the new beautiful song in Farsi called “Bade To”, which translates to “After You”. 

Although this music video was actually ready 16 months ago, Arad had to wait for the release licence in Iran, hence the delay. The wait was well worth it, however, as the two artists have provided us with a beautiful piece of art in which Arad sings and illustrates the heartbreak one feels after being abandoned by their love, and Alexander plays the elegant melody on the violin.  Continue reading Arad Aria Feat.

 Translation by Sonya L. Revision by Katie A.

I decided a long time ago that I’ll never fall in love again
But then you appeared, my kitten-kitten-kitten-kitten
I was independent, but now it’s so boring without you
You break my heart, you play with my soul

And I don’t mind, let people laugh at me
But as soon as I fall asleep, my bunny-bunny-bunny
You’re right here, and I grow wings on my back
And flying above  the ground, I’m dreaming only about one thing

Music and lyrics by Alexander Rybak

I, feel it in the air tonight,
Your eyes, tell me something just ain’t right,
You, treat me with your silky gloves,
We talk, ’bout everything except for love.

A sense, perfume from the night before,
I pray, that someday you will cheat no more,
Again, you have caused my heart to bleed,
Still, you’re the only one I need.

Alexander Rybak performing “Always a Woman” by billy Joel

Music & lyrics by Billy Joel

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes,
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies,
And she only reveals what she wants you to see.
She hides like a child but she’s always a woman to me.

She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you,
She can ask for the truth but she’ll never believe you,
And she’ll take what you give her as long as it’s free,
Yeah she steals like a thief but she’s always a woman to me.

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants,
She’s ahead of her time.
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in,
She just changes her mind.

And she’ll promise you more than the garden of Eden
then she’ll carelessly cut you and laugh while you’re bleeding,
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be.
Blame it all on yourself cause she’s always a woman to me.

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants,
She’s ahead of her time.
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in,
She just changes her mind.

She is frequently kind and she’s suddenly cruel,
She can do as she pleases, she’s nobody’s fool,
But she can’t be convicted, she’s earned her degree,
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me.

Visa Vid Vindens Ängar – Album by Alexander Rybak

The album “Visa vid vindens ängar” by Alexander Rybak and Mats Paulson was released in 2011. The collaboration began when Mats contacted Alexander after having seen a video of him on YouTube where he performed his song “Visa vid vindens ängar”. And so he wanted to thank him for performing his songs and sent Alexander an email. Alexander was grateful for the praise, and later he contacted Mats and the collaboration was a fact.
The album is about enjoying the small things in life and it’s a perfect summer album. Alexander states in the sleeve that he needed a project that brought out the human in him. Below you can hear a taste of the songs.
