Product Description

Hafdis Huld is an Icelandic singer with a growing international reputation thanks to her breathtaking voice and unique songs full of vivid imagery and catchy hooks. Born in Reykjavik, Iceland, Hafdis has been heavily involved with music since the age of 15. After starting her career with two world tours as a member of iconic Icelandic eletro-collective Gus Gus, Hafdis has since been collaborating with numerous musicians, and has released several solo albums of her own quirky take on pop and folk music.

Hafdis Huld returns this spring with her first original album in four years and her third solo album of original songs, “Home.” Appropriately titled, the entrancing new album was written and recorded entirely in her picturesque wooden house located in the Icelandic mountains near Reykjavik. “Home” features beautifully stripped down production with a simplicity and directness that helps to showcase Hafdis’s pure and assured vocals to perfection. Written with an array of highly respected international songwriters, “Home” is a superlative collection of Hafdis’s trademark songwriting skills that her worldwide fans have come to expect with deceptively simple songs with a hidden darker undertone.

    • Lyrics

      you warm me up when the world gets cold
      with words that don't get old
      when nothing's being said
      they echo in my head

      moments hidden in routine
      nicer than they seem
      when you look at me
      with eyes blue as the sea

      sunrise it always feels like sunrise
      sunrise when you're around
      sunrise it always feels like sunrise
      sunrise when you're around

      in my own way I always knew
      I belonged with you
      ready for the memories
      of what was yet to be

      sunrise it always feels like sunrise
      sunrise when you're around
      sunrise it always feels like sunrise
      sunrise when you're around

      your silhouette against the sun
      burnt into my memory
      I knew you'd always be the one
      walking next to me

      sunrise it always feels like sunrise
      sunrise when you're around
      sunrise it always feels like sunrise
      sunrise when you're around

    • Lyrics

      our flag is his coat
      as he marches
      down the middle of the road
      we slowly walk behind him
      as we try to understand this game
      towards the sun
      this fight has only just begun
      there ain’t many things
      he wouldn’t do for this place

      somewhere in between the trees
      where the grass is green
      lives a man with his queen
      somewhere in between the trees
      in a world that no one sees
      he’s growing his own army of bees

      moving too fast
      for the magic to last
      on his watch the world
      moves a different pace
      we all have space
      his anchor went down
      kept his boots on the ground
      unaffected by the race taking place
      all around

      somewhere in between the trees
      where the grass is green
      lives a man with his queen
      somewhere in between the trees
      in a world that no one sees
      he’s growing his own army of bees

      he came from far away
      outside everyday
      and his rooster thinks it’s morning all the time
      tobacco in the air
      whenever he is near
      and I’m not sure if the dog is his or mine

      somewhere in between the trees
      where the grass is green
      lives a man with his queen
      somewhere in between the trees
      in a world that no one sees
      he’s growing his own army of bees

      In a house by the bend in the road
      lives such a lucky boy
      he loves to let it show
      no matter heads or tales
      seems like the wind
      is always in his sails

      He’s got a four-leaved clover
      tattooed on his arm
      I guess someone like him
      doesn’t really need a lucky charm

      they say it can’t be true
      it never happens here
      like it does with you
      hey maybe you could share
      some of this with me ooh
      and I could be lucky
      I could be lucky
      Jimmy just like you

      many think they know
      he´s made the devils deal
      and none of this is real
      when he rolls the dice
      you can see by his grin
      he knows he’s gonna win

      he’s got a four-leaved clover
      tattooed on his arm
      I guess someone like him
      doesn’t really need a lucky charm

      they say it can’t be true
      it never happens here
      like it does with you
      hey maybe you could share
      some of this with me ooh
      and I could be lucky
      I could be lucky
      Jimmy just like you

      ooh
      I guess you were born under a lucky star
      ooh
      that can only ever
      only ever take you so far

      hey maybe you could share
      some of this with me ooh
      and I could be lucky
      I could be lucky
      Jimmy just like you

    • Lyrics

      They talk and smile but I can’t hear
      I nod along just in case
      in my head I’m nowhere near
      I’m in a better place

      I feel small I hide a tear
      followed by this cloud
      I know I need to stay here
      sad and lonely in this crowd

      I paint your letter on my wall
      right there and then remember it all
      I’m far away and all alone
      I wanna go home, I wanna go home

      normal seems so nice
      when no one knows you
      I miss the calmness in your eyes
      here everything’s too new

      I paint your letter on my wall
      right there and then remember it all
      I’m far away and all alone
      I wanna go home, I wanna go home

      mountains and lakes on the way
      are hours and minutes to me
      the sky is a paler grey
      as I move closer to where I wanna be
      closer to where I wanna be

      I paint your letter on my wall
      right there and then remember it all
      I’m far away and all alone
      I wanna go home

      I paint your letter on my wall
      right there and then remember it all
      I’m far away and all alone
      I wanna go home
      I wanna go home

      He ran up the path with blood on his hands
      and a fear I'd never seen
      he stops for a breath and a backwards glance
      what could this have been

      wolves wolves don't howl at my door
      I don't want you here anymore
      wolves wolves don't howl at my door
      aaaaaooohhh

      I saw their master and he did not care
      send me on my way
      they're running wild out here
      still we choose to stay

      wolves wolves don't howl at my door
      I don't want you here anymore
      wolves wolves don't howl at my door
      aaaaaooohhh

      we don't go back to that neck of the woods
      try to stay off that track
      bow my head and pull up the hood
      whenever I must go back

      wolves wolves don't howl at my door
      I don't want you here anymore
      wolves wolves don't howl at my door
      aaaaaooohhh

      If I only had tomorrow
      today I’d look for you
      if I only had tomorrow
      yes that’s what I would do

      and I’d hold you closer than I ever have before
      like I told you I have never wished for more

      if I only had tomorrow
      I’d make you understand
      if I only had tomorrow
      I would hold on to your hand

      I would show you all the things you wanted to see
      and I know you’d save some little treasures just for me

      when they turn out the lights for the day
      our blanket of memories will keep me safe
      and if I ever have lost my way
      our blanket of memories will keep me safe

      if I only had a moment
      I wouldn’t see the clouds
      if I only had a moment
      I would speak of love out loud

      and I’d tell you all the things I should have said before
      then I’d tell you once again just to be sure

      when they turn out the lights for the day
      our blanket of memories will keep me safe
      and if I ever have lost my way
      our blanket of memories will keep me safe

      I will miss you more than words ever can explain
      the way you kissed me used to work to take away the pain

      with my eyes closed sometimes I can almost feel you here
      when the wind blows I hear your softest whisper in my ear

      Scared and I’m cold
      drenched in the lies
      you told
      with your empty eyes

      you’ve got empty eyes, empty eyes

      I’m happy I’m angry I laugh then I shout
      I’m learning how to cope
      melted the hurt from the inside and out
      left standing in a puddle of hope

      don’t come up here for me
      I took what’s left of us and I threw it to the sea

      tired and I’m sad thinking back to days we had
      before you lost your way

      I’m happy I’m angry I laugh then I shout
      I’m learning how to cope
      melted the hurt from the inside and out
      left standing in a puddle of hope

      don’t come up here for me
      I took what’s left of us and I threw it to the sea

      you’ve got empty eyes, empty eyes

      Hush falls over the night
      you won’t find me sleeping
      there’s a little light
      in my heart for safekeeping

      cold feet on the floor
      all feels so exciting
      creaking of the door
      right where I was hiding

      I did what I did and I saw what I saw
      remember the feel and the scent and so much more
      so much more

      laughter fills the hall
      ticking clock beside me
      right behind that door
      is the place where I should be

      I did what I did and I saw what I saw
      remember the feel and the scent and so much more
      so much more

      I did what I did and I saw what I saw
      remember the feel and the scent and so much more
      so much more
      remember it all

    • Lyrics

      People often ask me
      why I don’t write a song
      about the nights without you
      being cold and long

      how I loose track of time
      just looking in your eyes
      gazing at the stars
      telling pretty lies

      I can put it in a pop song if you like
      but what I feel about you doesn’t rhyme
      I’d spell it out with roses at your feet
      is that really something that we need

      should I call you baby
      when you’re feeling down
      waiting by the phone
      when you’re not around

      I can tell the whole world what I know
      make everybody see
      but it wouldn’t change a thing
      for you and me

      I can put it in a pop song if you like
      but what I feel about you doesn’t rhyme
      I’d spell it out with roses at your feet
      is that really something that we need

      The air feels heavy I can’t breath in here
      a long long time ago liked having you near me
      but now I’m big and sometimes even strong
      I’m strong enough to see that you were wrong
      I never needed you, needed you with me

      the echo of your voice still in my head
      I try my best forgetting what you said
      I’ve heard so many truer things since then
      from braver and better men
      I never needed you, needed you with me

      it’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
      these shoulders aren’t strong enough for two
      it’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
      so many things I wish I could undo

      you had this power everyone could see
      they didn’t know you stole it all from me
      I’ve seen you try to get by on your own
      haunted by the chances you have blown
      ‘cause you needed me needed me with you

      it’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
      these shoulders aren’t strong enough for two
      it’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
      so many things I wish I could undo

      I miss the rain
      I miss the rain
      so I stay indoors all day
      I miss the rain, I miss the rain
      the skies are blue there's no reason
      to complain
      but all the same
      I miss the rain

      we've had seven days of summer
      I've been counting
      it's the kind of weather nobody
      could hate
      everywhere around me people smiling
      I'm the only one who's looking for
      the shade

      I should be happy I should be happy
      I should be happy I should be happy

      but I miss the rain
      I miss the rain
      so I stay indoors all day
      I miss the rain, I miss the rain
      the skies are blue there's no reason
      to complain
      but all the same
      I miss the rain

      where did you go
      there are no cloud's above me
      I squint my eyes the world just seems
      too bright

      I should be happy I should be happy
      I should be happy I should be happy

      but I miss the rain
      I miss the rain
      so I stay indoors all day
      I miss the rain, I miss the rain
      the skies are blue there's no reason
      to complain

      but all the same

      wash my sins away
