Förr skall solen borttappa sitt sken
Förr skall skogen bli förvandlad till en duva
Innan jag dig min vän överger
For the rocks will split and shatter just like ice,
And the sun in the heavens cease to shine,
And the forest will turn into a white dove,
Ere, my dear, you and I will parted be.
For applegnat who requested Scandinavian Folk songs with a Love theme:
If you read love songs and thought lovely songs about lovely devotions then please think again. Though love was a popular enough theme in the old songs – it was always a dark and slightly disturbing love.
( One on friendship and eternal devotion )
( One in which being a total badass is the way to get the girl, or )
( Another on how being a badass will get you the girl, but this time with ambiguity about true motives )
( One in which confessions of love is deadly and dark )
( One with ponderings on the true nature of ones lover )
( And one on love betrayed )
