Hoppípolla
Sigur Rós Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Brosandi
Hendumst í hringi
Höldumst í hendur
Allur heimurinn óskýr
nema þú stendur

Rennblautur
Allur rennvotur
Engin gúmmístígvél
Hlaupandi í okkur ?
Vill springa út úr skel

Vindur í
og útilykt ? af hárinu þínu
Ég lamdi eins fast og ég get
með nefinu mínu
Hoppa í poll
Í engum stígvélum
Allur rennvotur(rennblautur)
Í engum stígvélum

Og ég fæ blóðnasir
En ég stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandish)

Og ég fæ blóðnasir
En ég stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandish)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Sigur Rós's song Hoppípolla describe a feeling of childlike wonder and joy, with a sense of connection to another person. The imagery of running through the rain without shoes and holding hands while the world is unclear except for the person standing next to them creates a feeling of purity and simplicity. Even though they are soaked and exhausted, they feel alive and want to burst out of their skin. The singer describes being so overcome with emotion, that he almost passes out, but he wants to keep jumping into puddles barefoot and feeling the wind in his hair.


The repetition of "og ég fæ blóðnasir, en ég stend alltaf upp" which translates to "and I get nosebleed, but I always stand up" in Hopelandish language, reinforces the idea of perseverance and resilience in the face of adversity. Life is not always easy, but the connection to another person and the experiences that make you feel alive are worth the risks and challenges.


Overall, Hoppípolla is a celebration of the pure joy and wonder that can be found in even the most mundane experiences when shared with someone you care about.

Two years ago, on Christmas Eve, I showed this superb video to my sister, I told her that this was the finest video ever created; I remember watching her face, her smile and even a little tear drop at the end of it… She totally agreed with me without saying a single word, I felt it… Today it’s been 3 painful months since her departure, and every time I watch this masterpiece my heart heals…
