WV 124 ENTRY
Staffan Hellstrand - Fanfar


FANFAR
Det här är en sång, en blomma
Det här är en hälsning till de fromma
De som inte jagar guldet och äran
De som ser lyckan i det de har nära
De som kan leva en dag i sänder
Utan oljade tungor och blodiga händer
De som inte alltid letar efter spänningen i natten
De som kan leva på bara luft och vatten
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar

Det här är en sång, en blomma
Till de som inte är så tomma
De som aldrig patrullerar Gamla Stan
Eller snortar i sig drömmar runt Karlaplan
De som inte alltid sneglar över de som har mera
De som sätter barn till världen och får de att fungera
De som inte vill vara en av ringarna på vattnet
Som kan leva under ytan och tycka det är vackert
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar

Det här är en sång, en blomma
Det här är en hälsning till de fromma
De som kan bygga och bygga och bygga
Och resa sig med solen och känna sig trygga
Som inte schackrar och dealar i en blåfrusen ström
Där varje handslag är ett vapen och varje andetag en lögn
Som inte vill vara en av ringarna på vattnet
Som kan leva under ytan och tycka det är vackert
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar

Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar
FANFARE
This is a song, a flower
This is a greeting to the earnest
Those who don't chase after gold and glory
Those who see happiness in the things they hold dear
Those who can live one day at a time
Without silver tongues and bloody hands
Those who don't always search for the thrill in the night
Those who can live on merely air and water
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

This is a song, a flower
To those who are not so aimless
Those who never patrol through Gamla Stan
Or snort their dreams away at Karlaplan
Those who don't always look at those who have more
Those who birth and raise children and have them turn out decent
Those who don't want to be one of the ripples on the water
Who can live beneath the surface and still find it beautiful
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

This is a song, a flower
This is a greeting to the earnest
Those who can build and build and build
And rise with the sun and feel secure enough
Who don't peddle and deal in a blue frozen stream
Where every handshake is a weapon and every breath a lie
Who don't want to be one of the ripples on the water
Who can live beneath the surface and still find it beautiful
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

Re: Svealand (Sweden)

Yeah I know, I didn't even think about the whole moving thing when I decided to host a NF. But don't despair! I have chosen a great song (at least in my opinion, haha) for WorldVision 01.


Here's a clue about the artist I have selected:



And no, it's not Britney Spears. :lol:

I'm curious about your entry.

And actually I have an idea based on the clues given.
But I will not say it to anyone. xrofl2

I hope to see you voting in Latvian NF. xcheer

Ooo! I'm curious now. Hit me a PM with your guess! I won't be able to deny or confirm it of course, but it'd be fun to see who you think it is. :D

If your contestants were ABBA my 12 pointer would be found before the contest :lol:
Hehe, might have some ABBA later in one of the NFs! :D

Re: Svealand (Sweden)

Wish I could tell you whether you were wrong or right, but it's not long until it will be revealed anyway. Which is great news. :D

And I hope you guys will enjoy the song (and the artist) just as much as I do! :D

Re: Svealand (Sweden)

No, actually I love all of them! xhug :mrgreen: Such a shame I've got only one of their albums. :mrgreen:
I have the albums "Highland" and "Den Vilda". So many great songs. :D The song "Highland" has been a huge favorite of mine ever since I first heard it about 20 years ago.
