God natt (Good Night)

Video

Created in 1999 to an outstanding woman, with a desire for peace in a restless soul. The song was well received and opened five intense and memorable years. It was our "secret" until it was first publicly performed in the spring of 2004.

This version from 2008 is beautifully interpreted by Øystein Fevang and Tove Kragset. I have also played a bit with my "PC Philharmonic" in the background. English subtitles in the video, translated lyrics below.

God natt

Ligg ned, lille engel
La varmen favne deg
Kjenn tanken slippe taket
Ligg ned
I natt er du fri

Jeg ser en stjerne dale
Og lyset ebber ut
Når sinnet gar i dvale
Ligg ed
I natt er du fri

Jeg kan se du skinner
Gloen ble til ild
Men når flammen svinner
Får du fred
Du får fred

Ligg ned, hør min stemme
Jeg vaker over deg
Når myke skyer møtes
Ligg ned
I natt er du fri

Ingen storm kan temmes
Når alt mykt blir hardt
Men så blir det stille
Du får fred
Du får fred

Ligg ned, lille engel
La varmen favne deg
Kjenn tanken slippe taket
Ligg ned
I natt er du fri
Ligg ned, du er fri

Good Night

Lay down, little angel
Let the warmth cover you
Feel the thoughts slip away
Lay down
Tonight you are free

I see a star go down
And the light fading out
When your mind goes to sleep
Lay down
Tonight you are free

I can see you're shining
The glow became a fire
But when the flame dwindles
You get peace
You get peace

Lay down, listen to my voice
I'll be awake for you
Where soft clouds' meeting
Lay down
Tonight you are free

No storm can be tamed
All the soft gets hard
But then all is quiet
You get peace
You get peace

Lay down, little angel
Let the warmth cover you
Feel the thoughts slip away
Lay down
Tonight you are free
Lay down, you are free
