9. DENMARK: Duo Dano -“Du og jeg (You And I)”

“Du og jeg” (You And I)

Performed by: Duo Dano
Music by: Tony Immanuel Søgaard Olsen
Lyrics by: Frøydis Skinnarland

Frøydis is from Norway and Tony is from Denmark. They started writing together in the early 90’s and in 1994 Tony visited Frøydis and her family in Norway. Both like to sing and play. Tony wrote a melody, and Frøydis wrote norwegian lyrics.

“This resulted in a happy little country song, which now will be the Danish entry in the Home Composed Song Contest 2020, performed in Norwegian,” says Tony. Together Tony and Frøydis are Duo Dano and Frøydis is the lead singer.

Tony has taken part many times before in the contest. He has won 4 times, last time in 2011. This is the first time for Frøydis. Welcome Frøydis, and welcome back Tony. Good luck!

Lyrics:

Husker dagen da jeg så deg første gang
Dine øyne satte hjerte mitt i brann
Vi skulle samme vei min venn
Vi skal sammen gå dit hen

Trodde lykke var en drøm, en fantasi
Men lykken det er oss, ja, det er faktisk vi
Aldri har jeg vært i tvil
Elsker deg, din sjarm, ditt smil

Når vi er sammen du og jeg
Er det latter, smil og glede
Tida står stille, ingen kan skille deg og meg
Når vi er sammen du og jeg
Tror jeg at vi kan klare all ting
Gjennom sorg glede
Er vi tilstede du og jeg

Him`lens stjerner skinner bare for oss to
De blinker til oss ned og gir en indre ro
Jeg ser på deg og jeg vet
Du er min kjærlighet

Når vi er sammen du og jeg…

Når du stryker mitt kinn
Og tar min hånd i din
Er jeg sikker på
At dette er den vei vi skal gå

Når vi er sammen du og jeg…

 

Translation:

Remember the day I first saw you
Your eyes set my heart on fire
We were going the same way my friend
We must go together

Believing happiness was a dream, a fantasy
But luckily it is us, yes, it is actually us
I have never been in doubt
Love you, your charm, your smile

When we’re together you and I
Is it laughter, smile and joy
Time stands still, no one can separate you and me
When we’re together you and me
I think we can handle everything
Through grief joy
Are we present to you and me

The stars of heaven only shine for the two of us
They wink at us and give an inner calm
I look at you and I know
You are my love

When we are together you and I …

When you stroke my cheek
And take my hand in yours
Am I sure
That this is the way we should go

When we are together you and I …
