Daughters of The Night

Partygoers!
Reykjavik's daughters of the night
flirt with the Lord
and deep red tones
empty the night.

In response to your proofreading request:
I did not see/hear anything that needed to be retouched. Good job on the translations

Þakka þér fyrir! I was a bit insecure about "partygoers" because I couldn't find a better English word for "útipúkinn" as opposite to "innipúkinn" - couch potato Wink smile

Well personally I'd translate "innipúki" as homebody but that might just be my American English exposure. 😉
Other options for "útipúki" would be wandered/vagabond/wild child/"hiking junky" 😂, but in this context I think partygoers works splendidly

Thank you very much for your explanation! In my mother's tongue it's something alike, called "Stubenhocker" = "stay-at-home", and the opposite (at night-time) "Nachtschwärmer" Wink smile
