Running to the Sea lyrics


Running to the Sea


I could hear them howling from afar
I saw them rushing to your car
In a moment I went screaming wild
Until the darkness killed the light

I remember running to the sea
The burning houses and trees
I remember running to the sea
Alone and blinded by the fear

And the river flows beneath your skin
Like savage horses kept within
And all is wasted in this head
Like breaking diamonds with your hand

I remember running to the sea
The burning houses and trees
I remember running to the sea
Alone and blinded by the fear

And the river flows beneath your skin
Like savage horses kept within
And all is wasted in this head
Like breaking diamonds with your hand

And the river flows inside of me
And the river flows inside of me
And the river flows inside of me
And the river flows inside of me

Susanne Sundfør is marvelous in this...her performance really made this song for me. The video is also exceptionally well done....like a short film brimming with emotion.

I love this song so much but it’s really difficult for me to hear without getting teary eyed because it feels very personal like it speaks directly to my heart and my experiences. This song to me is about a father-daughter relationship. A father who lost his daughter and is trying to cope. I’m fighting with my own demons everyday and this song reminds me of my father who I don’t see anymore. He’s far away all alone, hunting, trying to deal with his demons.

His daughter drowned, "Touch the ocean floor", and on most of her scenes the girl is surrounded by water

I'm like 3 years completly alone, my first and only girlfriend died and i decided to move to another city. I'm completly alone right now, i never go out, maybe only for supermarket.. I still love her, i can't stop thinking of her, i want to see her again.
I was thinking much about suicide, and i don't know why i'm still alive.
My life became monochrome after she died, nothing is making me happy..

(Sorry for my english..)

this video made me stop and appreciate my own parent's love for me. I've always been amazed and honestly confused by their unconditional love. It's nice sometimes to see things from their perspective. To be reminded that they're depending on me to have continued success because it's important. because they've worked hard to bring a human being into this world ♡

Susanne Sundfør is a national treasure for Norway. It's a pure voice -- rather like Karen Matheson is to Scotland -- I love her solo work, too.

This is not music.
This is art.

This song is part of a very sad and important part of my life. Yes, like this music I was running to the sea, and trying to running of my own life. Trudy, this is, maybe, our song and the song of our lives. I'll love you for ever my love.

This is the most magnificent voice and music I've ever heard so far, I keep humming the tune when I'm not listening to it, everything is perfectly placed here, from the audio to the video. I wish Röyksopp have had worked with Susanne Sundfør some more! They are perfect together.

This song is a reminder that there are so many lonely people in this world, whether rich or poor, developed or developing countries fighting their own personal and inner "demons. This thing call life is so fleeting though some would think they are immortal. Despite all that, we have to live and give, take nothing for granted, breathe and cry, laugh and eat, make love, give compassion and look out for your neighbour, even if it once in a while...check in on families an old friend just to say "Hi". Even if you have only one piece of bread please share with someone in need. PEACE, LOVE, HEALTH & TRAVEL LIGHT::))))))

You can hear the whisp of her Scandnavian accent in her singing- twinged with pure melancholy like the best of old ABBA and Bjork (yes she is Icelandic!). Just brilliant.

I believe the song is about the horror that happened at Utøya, so the movie makes perfect sense as it depicts a fathers struggle in accepting his daughters death. Couldn't watch this without feeling extremely sad and brought a tear to my eye. :'(

The most beautiful song ever written and performed by Norwegians in English. Röyksopp at its best. Among their numerous female collaborators Ms. Sundfør stands out above the others. Susanne Sundførs voice on this track is angelic as if floating vividly above the thumping and twitching rhythm and orchestrations. Mixed in with the melancholic lyrics this song finds its form as a brilliant electronica masterpiece.

I interpret it as him losing his daughter and family in a tragedy. It happened near the ocean, so he retreated to the mountains so he didn't have to look at it again. But even there he can't escape the death, as he is faced with having to kill things as a means of survival.

Fantastic video to fantastic track. My interpretation: in one of the hunts he accidentally shot his little daughter. Then his wife left him. He ended up being alone. Wondering through the forest of memories. The whole video we seeing his daughter, in age she never ended up growing to. Very sad but endlessly beautyfull story of loss and never ending suffering shot in amazing way.

Absolutely stunning! I'm not usually a huge fan of using shaky camera work, but it was utilized so perfectly here that I could only be impressed. Way to go, Lauren! Making a beautiful song that much more tear jerking.

Doesn't fit in with my zombie apocalypse theory for the song's meaning but it is beautifully shot and edited.  Nice.

My second favorite artist from Norway... Aurora and her have such a unique voice, deep and amazing that their voices sound alike either live or recorded and that is true artist to me.. Not to forget that this is real piece of art, these people are just amazing and real... They don't need to ruin their voice like artists now at days... They sing it peaceful, such believable.. My God, I need songs like this every day, I will die listening to her and Aurora❤❤❤
