Hægt og hljótt

Kvöldið hefur flogið alltof fljótt
Fyrir utan gluggann komin nótt
Kertin er' að brenna upp
Glösin orðin miklu meir'en tóm

Augnalokin eru eins og blý
En enginn þykist skilja neitt í því
Að timinn pípuhatt sinn tók
Er píanistinn sló sin lokahljóm

Við hverfum hægt og hljótt, út í hlýja nóttina
Hægt og hljótt, göngum við heim götuna
Einu sinni, einu sinni enn

Eftir standa stólar, bekkir, borð
Brotin glös, sögð og ósögð orð
Þögnin fær nú loks sinn frið
Fuglar yrka nýjum degi ljóð

Við hverfum hægt og hljótt, út í hlýja nóttina
Hægt og hljótt, göngum við heim götuna

Hægt og hljótt, göngum við heim götuna
Hægt og hljótt, í gegnum hlýja nóttina
Einu sinni, einu sinni enn

Slowly and quietly

The evening has fled all too fast
Outside the window night has come
The candles are burning low
The glasses have become much more than empty

The eyelids are heavy as lead
But no one pretends to understand
That time took it's top-hat
As the pianist struck the last note

We disappear slowly and quietly, into the warm night
Slowly and quietly, we walk the street home
Once, once again

Left are chairs, benches, tables
Broken glasses, spoken and unspoken words
Silence at last has it's peace
Birds poeticise to the new day

We disappear slowly and quietly, into the warm night
Slowly and quietly, we walk the street home

Slowly and quietly, we walk the street home
Slowly and quietly, through the warm night
Once, once again
