lyrics

Över vida slätter, ruiner, vrak och stad
Dimmans mantel lägger tak på allt
Med sin gamla kärra gubben släpar sig fram
Ugglan flyger i natt

Elden i hans stuga brinner röd och varm
Lågor dansar i en maskerad
Nordanvinden viner genom tall och gran
Vargen vandrar i natt

Gumman vid sin vävstol nynnar gammelmors trall
Katten valsar runt sin egen svans
Hundraårig saga spinner gåtfulla band
Barnet sover i natt
Kajsa, sov nu i natt

--

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Kajsa’s lullaby
Over plains, ruins, wrecks and towns
The fog cloaks everything
With his worn cart the elderly man drags himself onward
The owl flies tonight

The fire in his house burns red and hot
The flames dance in masquerade
The north wind whines through pine and spruce
The wolf wanders tonight

The old lady by the loom hums eldmother’s lilt
The cat rolls around its own tail
Time-honoured sagas weave enigmatic ties
The child sleeps tonight
Kajsa, sleep tonight
