Pagten (OST) - Utan varandra [Uden hinanden] (English translation)

Swedish

Utan varandra [Uden hinanden]

Hemlighetsfulla faller flingor hit
som stjärnestoft och målar skogen vintervit
Håll om mig,
det är så kallt här utan dig
 
Utan varandra är vi ingenting,
två flingor som virvlar i en vintervind,
men står vi tillsammans i pakten
kan inget nånsin skilja oss åt

Submitter's comments:

Jag var tvungen att luta mig mot de danska och norska transkriberade texterna för att lista ut att det var "hemlighetsfulla" och "hit" i den första raden, beroende på hur hon fraserar det första och uttalar det andra. Men finns det ingen längre svensk version? Jag ser att den danska har en vers till och att refrängen kommer fler gånger.

Without Each Other [Uden Hinanden]

Secretive,1 snowflakes 2 fall here3
Like stardust, and paint the forest winter white4
Hold me,5
It's so cold here without you
 
Without each other we are nothing,
Two snowflakes2 that twirl in a winter wind
But if we stand together in the pact
Nothing can ever separate us
 
  • 1. Or possibly "enigmatic" in this context.
  • 2. a. b. Lit. "flakes", but the context makes it most likely to be snowflakes.
  • 3. Or "this way".
  • 4. Or "wintery white".
  • 5. Or "embrace me", "hug me"; but this is more literal.

Hi Loot is this from a tv show ? It's a Danish show from what i've seen on wiki but i can't find it anywhere it looks interesting

Yes, I believe it is the Swedish version of the opening credits of a Danish children's TV show which was used as an advent calendar in 2009. Maybe you know this already, but in the Nordic countries (and perhaps elsewhere?) there is a custom of televised (and radio broadcast) advent calendars with 24 episodes; one broadcast each day until Christmas Eve (which is the main day of Christmas celebration in the Nordic countries).

You can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordic_Christmas_calendar
Here's the IMDB page for the show: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1475526/

It's mostly for kids, but I guess their parents (and some others) watch them too. I don't watch much TV anymore either... I guess my computer, armed with an internet connection, won the war against my TV. Wink smile
