Lyrics:
Kvitravn
Ut i skuma
Lokkar til meg
Kvite ramnen
Duld og dvelande
Høyr eg spør!
Lend meg ei fjør
Så skal eg verkje
vingar kvite
Lat oss flyga
i vide vindar
I hugjen veida
Med songen seida
Høyr eg spør!
Lend meg vidsyn
Lat meg skilje
Sjå i skodda
Høyr eg spør!
Lær meg songen
som deg freistar… som meg freistar
som deg finn… som meg finn
Vil du meg fylgja
i all mi tid?
Vil du meg varda
i all mi tid?
Gygrefuggel
Gav meg vingar
Kvite korpa
Gav meg sjon
Galdrekråka
Gav meg songen
Kvite vingar
Fylgjer meg
_________________________
White Raven
Into twilight
Lure you in
White raven
Veiled and dwelling
Let me ask!
Lend me a feather
I will turn it
into white wings
Let us fly,
wide on winds
With hunting minds
and sorcerous songs
Let me ask!
Lend me your wide-sight
Let me espy,
in fumes of fog
Let me ask!
Teach me the song
that allures you… that allures me
that finds you… that finds me
Will you follow me
throughout my time?
Will you watch over me
throughout my time?
Spirit-bird
Gave me wings
White raven
Gave me foresight
Chanting-crow
Gave me the song
White wings
Follows me

I have wondered about my last name origin for the last name or word Ward ever since discovering the Norwegian band Wardruna. I have had people tell me that I look Scandinavian and their are some red headed/blue eyed in the family (me being brown haired with tint or red when it hits the sunlight and I have bluish greenish eyes and very fair skin). I originally thought my dad's side of the family was 100% Scottish and Irish, but if you do the research their was a lot of viking settlements and activity in Scottland and Ireland. And if you compare the maps of the amount of redheads in different areas to viking settlements and activity in different areas you find that they match. The name Ward is thought to be Irish or Celctic but that could have been brought over by the vikings. Vordr- means Warden in old Norse (a.k.a a watcher or care taker in old Norse) or it means guardian in old norse. It is pronounced exactly like the old English word Ward with the same meaning. The vikings had one letter to represent both the V and W as one sound represented by the elder futhark Wunjo. If you listen to the pronunciation of the old Norse word Vordr is sounds exactly like the name/word Ward but with the lips tighter together almost making a v sound instead of a w sound. The old English meaning for the name Ward is guard or keeper of the watch. In Norse mythology a Vordr is a warden spirit believed to follow from the birth to death of a person, like a guardian angel so to speak.
The Road To Perdition
I know I speak for many when I say that your music serves as a tether for many of us to follow back to the earth when we grow lost in the maze of the modern world, craving the closeness and simplicity of the natural world.

i do not understand this language but based off tones and vibes of the song, I would interpret this as a lost or confused soul who is frustrated and can not find the answers in life and is desperate but will remain strong until the end.

After watching this video I feel like the bar for videos has been elevated by 30%. I rate this video a solid 11/10. All previous 10s are now a 7/10. This is a cry of awakening. The spirit is ready to fly. I have never seen a video that has captivated me as much as this one. Ever. Not even Lord of The Rings. This is what my soul has been trying to find for a decade. Now it has vision and voice. Thank you Wardruna!!!

@The Spinglass-Hydra she is already very caring. We also are part native, she loves animals. Shes so smart, her middle name is Rayven so i think thats part of it
The Spinglass-Hydra
@Jaimee Young I am Native American, and my name is "Raven-Shadow" so, when, I saw your comment, I knew I had to say hello...!!! Too me, I would honesty say, as-well-as, my tribe; that, she has the potential to become a great and powerful "Medicine-Woman" if, she already has this connection to Raven. It may seem, almost, insignificant to you - but, it is not. There will probably be things she'll intuitively know or understand, so, please don't be frightened; like, if she, appears to have complete conversations with small animals, insects, or even trees. I would start educating her to know herbs and plants; like my precious grandmother, would take me along, to go wild mushroom and herb hunting, in the forest. Jaimee, your little girl is a very rare soul, so, expect great things, in the future. With All My Blessings - Raven Shadow.

@morvek thar One thing you should note, "nynorsk" is a written norm and not spoken. The language is called just Norwegian (modern). Einar sings using a dialect that is closer to nynorsk, and he often uses archaic/artistic words (not standard nynorsk or any other norm).

Thomas Norbø 7 days ago
I would suggest you stay in the Netherlands if you're content there. I'm afraid your experience will be negative if you have no experience living in Norway already. I know some Italians that tried it here. It's not easy fitting in without the language, social codes, social network, etc. Never mind the different lifestyle and high costs. Good luck!

Are the lyrics in "old" Norwegian? How different is this from modern Bokmål and Nynorsk?
Thomas Norbø
Thomas Norbø 7 days ago
No, it's modern Norwegian (west coast dialect), but closer to the nynorsk written norm. We don't speak bokmål/nynorsk, we speak dialects. Einar's word choices are often artistic, archaic, or from local dialects.
