Gold: “Old Skin” – Ólafur Arnalds feat. Arnór Dan

“He has also set eternity in their heart…” – Ecclesiastes 3:11


Where the woods would wear the wafting sounds of sea
Roves an oath, in search for something more to be
“still hard for me”.

Treading lightly, tightly shedding its old skin
Leaving trails of night for light to bring chagrin
While air grows thin

In these hands I’ll hide
While this world collides
It’s not enough for me

Wailing winds, alarm, in feathers it have dressed
surrounding what’s left inside its chest
we too shall rest

Roaring lungs, as oath becomes through flight past trees
only the rhythm of love escapes the harmonies
leaving us a beat.
