Som en virvelvind
Som kommer å tar me med
Kommer å tar me me

Som en lavastrøm
Som kommer å drar me me
Kommer å drar me me

Ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

En varme inni oss
Den som elske livet
En flamme for livet

Kan smelte is til vann
å lyse så vi finn fram
Kan gjøre en steinmur til sand

Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Oh, nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Oh, nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie
Vi e frie

Slur? Strong? If you are referring to the "traditional" or "old" spanish practice of cecear, it is more like the kiss of butterfly's wing against the cheek. Or eardrum—

 
I had to look up cecear.   But yes dingleberry, I do prefer your way of expressing it.  10^3 thanks!

I find Dutch to be (from my perspective of course) a bit of a mix of Norwegian/Swedish, German and English. At least that's how I make sense of it... :)

 
And I find Canadian to be a mix of Virvelvind and moose calls. It's all good.
One of the very best comments thread I've read in a long time. 'Best' as in: fun AND educating!

It must be pretty clear what the lyrics are about for anyone speaking English (or Dutch) so I guess you're right. 

 
Don't understand a word, still a cool song.
I can kinda follow Norwegian and Swedish speakers.

But Icelandic is very hard for me to follow.  Reminds me of how Spaniards slur their words with that strong 'th' sound.
 
For those with a Netflix account, I highly recommend the Icelandic television series "Trapped".

Damn Norwegians have a different word for everything!

 
Norwegian is actually a pretty easy language for an English speaker to learn (easier than Swedish which, contra Bill, Ane Brun is not singing here).

Yup - a Sinead clone. Wonder if she likes THIS Pope?

As a whirlwind
Who comes to take me with
Coming to take me me

As a lava flow
That comes to drag me me
Coming to drag me me

Nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

A warm inside us
Whoever love life
A flame of life

Can melt ice for water
lit as we locate
Can make a stone wall for sand

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

Oh, no, nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

Oh, no, nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free
We e free


Positively surprised to hear a Norwegian artist singing on the mother tongue on Radio Paradise:-) great - thanks!
Deserves a much higher rating, I believe.

Yes I guessed because the dutch word for Virvelvind is pretty similar. Thats wervelwind and it also means a mild twister like whirlwind. If it is a dangerous twister we call it a windhoos wich translates to tornado. Litterally it means something like wind-plenty.

 
That makes sense. It sounds very similar too. I find Dutch to be (from my perspective of course) a bit of a mix of Norwegian/Swedish, German and English. At least that's how I make sense of it... :) But then our languages are all closely related, so we're all a mix of each other I suppose.

Always learning something new on RP.

Virvelvind = twister (usually a small one). Take it from a Norwegian, which is the language of the song.

But is it nynorsk or bokmål?

Either way, this is a good song. 

 
Dialectic, from her hometown of Molde. Although I believe they would write in nynorsk. :)

Strictly speaking the Finnish are not Scandinavian at all, but rather Nordic, which is a larger group of countries that of course also includes the three Scandinavian countries (Norway, Sweden and Denmark). A common mistake though.

But if you really want to learn to speak more like the old Vikings consider Icelandic. It's still very close to old Norse!

Her sound reminds me a lot of Sinead O'Connor.
Wow!  First time I hear this song, and it blows me away.  Instant 8, and will probably go up with future listens.

After a trip a couple of years back to a conference in Gothenburg, via Denmark (and of course the famous bridge), I came to love the sound of Scandinavian languages. One day I'd love to learn one (other than Finnish, of course, which is famously difficult and unrelated to the other Scandi languages). What I really like is how Swedes, Danes and Norwegians can talk together without difficulty, perhaps because the languages have all descended from a common Norse ancestor. So, yer average Scandinavian has at least 3 lingos and usually a better command of English than English native speakers, not to mention German. Clever folk, these Vikings {#War}

 
I once took a pottery class with two Danish women and a Swedish woman. They would start talking in...I have no idea across the room and the rest of us would switch our eyes from one speaker to another like we were watching space aliens playing tennis. They were pretty cool about it and echoed your statement that they Scandinavians can talk to each other pretty readily. And yes, their command of English was excellent although they all had slight accents. Very nice people too. 

But it's hard for me to empathize when I hear Swedish spoken in love or anger, say in a Bergman film. That passion gets lost and the actors just sound goofy. 
just a general heads-up (and yes, I absolutely love Ane Brun) but there is an absolutely amazing collection of photos on the HD slideshow to this track.  
Her "Do You Remember" still blows my mind, but this is quite lovely.
Now THIS is what I call good stuff.  Thanks RP
