“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

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”.

YOU RAISE ME UP

( Music: Rolf Løvland. Lyrics: Brendan Graham)

Lyrics as they are sung by Johnny Logan in this performance

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

There is no life ‘ no life without the hunger;
Each beaten heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, it feels I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

 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
