'Þung eru þau spor' From Réttur OST

Written by HQ on . Posted in New Releases

Þung eru þau spor is the end title track for Icelandic TV drama Réttur (e. Case).

It's a heartfelt funeral song in Icelandic, inspired by the death of a 15 year girl found hanged over the stage of the Icelandic National Theatre at the beginning of Episode 1, leading to an investigation that quickly turns into something way bigger and complicated than expected. The title, rouglhly translated, means 'Heavy are those steps'. 

Þung eru þau spor
is written and performed by Petur Jonsson and sung by Sigríður Thorlacius.

Lyrics:

Þung eru þau spor sem fylgja 
þér veginn nú
Hljóðan setur heiminn                                    
dimm er veröld sú
...sem fyrr lýstir þú

Huggun er gegn harmi mínum
minningin hlý
Áfram muntu lifa 
huga mínum í
...um ókomna tíð

Vita mátt þú eitt með vissu
vina mín kær
ef hærri tilvist bíður
hörðum heimi fjær
...þig fagnandi fær
