What I love, it is beyond and hidden in an obscure faraway land,
and my true path is high and wonderful.[fn]I didn't really know what to make of this line, but here I've meant "high" to allude to "the high road". For "den rätta vägen" I would have said "the right way" (like in the Bible, apparently), but "my right way" doesn't sound... eh... right.[/fn]

With one hand the reins be tightens,
