Steinn
Yann Tiersen Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Djúpt i klettinum var hús
Í horni hússisns var arinn
Í arninum var aska
Við öskuna var brenni
Við brennið var bekkur
Fyir framan bekkin var borð
Við brún borðsins var stóll
Á st'plnum hékk jakki
Í jakkanum var vasi
Í vasanum var steinn
Pétur tók steininn
Fór með hann út
Og setti hann við rætur klettsins

Deep in the rock there was a house
In the corner of the house there was the hearth
In the hearth there were some ashes
Next to the ashes there was some firewood
Near the firewood there was a bench
In front of the bench there was a table
At the edge of the table there was a chair
Upon the chair there hung a coat
In the coat there was a pocket
In that pocket there was a stone
Peter grabs the stone




Took it outside
And placed it at the bays of the rock

Overall Meaning

Yann Tiersen's song "Steinn" is a nostalgic and contemplative piece that evokes a sense of stillness and timelessness. The lyrics of the song paint a vivid picture of a remote dwelling deep in the mountains, where everything seems to be in its right place and nothing moves except for the wind. The imagery of the song is so rich and detailed that it transports the listener to another world, where the pace of life is slow and deliberate, and the only sounds are those of nature.
