Húsavík

All by myself
With this great, big world before me
But it's all for someone else
 
I've tried and tried again
To let you know just where my heart is
To tell the truth and not pretend
 
All I needed was to get away
Just to realize that I was meant to stay
 
Where the mountains sing through the screams of seagulls
Where the whales can live 'cause they're gentle people
In my hometown, my hometown
Thought I made it clear, do I have to say it?
It was always there, we just didn't see it
All I need is you and me and my home
 
Vera með þér, með þér
Í Húsavík við Skjálfanda
Í heimabær minn
 
You want the world
All the neon lights and billboards
To be seen and to be heard
 
And I followed you
But now I know what makes me happy
And I can tell you feel it too
 
Where the mountains sing through the screams of seagulls
Where the whales can live 'cause they're gentle people
In my hometown, my hometown
Where the northern lights burst out in colors
And the magic nights surpass all others
Það eina sem ég þrái er, að vera með þér, með þér
Í Húsavík við Skjálfanda
My home, my hometown

  • 1. Húsavík is a town in the bay of Skjálfandi, in northern Iceland.
  • 2. The line is grammatically incorrect in the lyrics: instead of "heimabær minn" (nominative), it should be "heimabæ mínum" (dative).

Rather than changing the case from nominative to dative, could you just eliminate the word IN? Would that correct the error?

It's the lyrics to be wrong and to be sung wrong, this can't be corrected.
