Blå Minder - Kaster Blikke (English translation)

Danish

Kaster Blikke

Jeg spinder tråd nok
Til en ledetråd langt væk
I horisonten
Vil jeg lede efter den
 
Vender mod solen
Kaster blikke væk fra land
Mens jeg leder efter den
 
Min dag, den mæsker sig
I kilder, som jeg ikke tror, at jeg har
Som jeg ikke tror, at jeg har
 
Mørket, det falder
Imens jeg står på tæer
I horisonten
Lover verden mig lidt mer'
 
Min dag, den mæsker sig
I kilder, som jeg ikke tror, at jeg har
Som jeg ikke tror, at jeg har
 
I horisonten
Vil jeg lede
Kaster blikke

Throwing Glances

I spin enough thread
For a clue1 far away
In the horizon,
I'll go looking for it
 
Turning towards the sun
Throwing glances away from land
As I'm looking for it
 
My day's guzzling down
From springs2 that I don't believe I have
That I don't believe I have
 
The darkness is falling
As I stand on my toes
In the horizon,
The world is promising me something more
 
My day's guzzling down
From springs that I don't believe I have
That I don't believe I have
 
In the horizon,
I'll go looking,
Throwing glances
 
  • 1. Ledetråd literally means "leading / guiding thread"
  • 2. The word for a spring also means a source and in this context, it's meant to be understood as "sources (of energy)"
