Kristian Leth - Vi (English translation)

Danish

Vi

Det her er, hva' jeg har at si'
Denne her er til hver dreng og pig'
Denne her er til alle dem, der troed', der ikk' var mere håb
Dem, der lærte, der ikk' var noget tilbage at stole på
Den her er til dem
 
Hvor er du henne lige nu?
Står du op, eller går du ud?
Faldt du sammen, da du troede, at du var så god?
Lå der der med dine tomme hænder og dit næseblod?
Den her er til dig
 
For vi – vi er mer', end dét, de tror
Og vi har en verden, hvor vi bor
Og vi ska' nok finde svar engang
Vi – vi vil synge den her sang
Vi synger den her sang
 
De sagde til os, at det var forbi
En fremmed verden med dem og vi
Men du ved jo godt, at der ikk' er noget, der er så sort og hvidt
Du ved godt, at du ikk' behøver at føle dig beskidt
 
Og vi finder sammen to og to
Og vi har en fremtid, vi tror på
Og vi, ska' nok klare de engang
Vi – vi vil synge den her sang
Vi synger den her sang

We

This is what I have to say
This one is for every boy and girl
This one is for everyone who thought there was no more hope
Those who learned, that there was nothing left to trust
This one is for those
 
Where are you right now?
Are you standing up or are you walking out?
Did you fall down, when you thought, that you were so good?
Did you lie there with your empty hands and your nosebleed?
This one is for you
 
'Cause we – we are more than what they think
And we have a world in which we live
And we will find answers eventually
We – we will sing this song
We are singing this song
 
They told us that it was over
A strange world with them and us
But you do actually know that there's nothing which is that black and white
You do know that you don't have to feel dirty
 
And we pair up in groups of two
And we have a future we believe in
And we will make it eventually
We – we will sing this song
We are singing this song
