Nar du tar mig i din famn

(Faltskog / Forsman)

 

English lyrics by Nick Golovko

 

I was staggered and stunned.

My door slammed; you were gone.

Everything was reduced to ashes.

It was painful back then;

I could not understand

How could blandness replace the passion.

Love was just a mistake

I was happy to make,

And now its time to take a break.

 

Refrain:

But when you take me in your arms,

I forget myself at once,

And your whisper is a flaming chill.

Its of you that I think,

It is of you that birds sing,

And this lovesong fills my heart with joy and thrill.

And when you take me in your arms,

I forget my grief at once,

And it breaks apart my sad resolve.

Nothing matters when youre next to me

I just want to feel love.

 

I have been full of pride,

Kept you out of my sight,

And I never revealed my feelings.

But the void in my soul

Was so hard to control

Through the night when I saw you leaving.

Love was just a mistake

I was happy to make,

And now its time to take a break.
