Girl from Vancouver I’m in love with a girl from Vancouver Maybe I’ll move there, Maybe I’ll move there. She’s so sweet, she’s got my heart in a hoover, Girl from Vancouver, girl from Vancouver. Ooooh… She’s got a smile like an upside down rainbow. Where did my brain go? Where did my brain go? And how she does it, I just cannot explain though, smiles like a rainbow, smiles like a rainbow. Ooooh… She’s so sweet, like candy from a stranger. Like a poisonous fruit, so pretty and red She’s got eyes that radiate the danger. I’d like to lay her in my lonely bed. I lie back and think of Vancouver, Someday I’ll move there, someday I’ll move there. I think about her, shaking that smooth hair. Girl from Vancouver, girl from Vancouver.

While the world burns Ukulele version Some people say the end is near and some say that it's already here. But I won't feel the slightest fear, if my arms are full of you. Maybe we will suffocate in poison fumes and clouds of hate but I won't care about my fate If my arms are full of you. I just want to hold you while the world burns I just want to hold you while the world burns Let it burn… burn… burn… Crushed by the oceans mighty waves or ripped apart by robotic slaves I won't mind the crowded graves if my arms are full of you… Burned alive by bitter ash or a supernovas blinding flash, I won't feel that biting lash, if my arms are full of you… I just want to hold you while the world burns I just want to hold you while the world burns Let it burn… burn… burn… The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire. I just want to hold you while the world burns I just want to hold you while the world burns

about

Svavar Knutur

A troubadour of humble beginnings and rural upbringing, Svavar Knútur's music tells stories of love, tragedies, sadness and redemption, looking back at his country's sad and shame-filled history. His voice always seem to strike a chord with his audiences, along with his decadently charming on-stage persona, his concerts at times comprised of stories within stories and songs within songs. ... more
