This is an awesome song from an awesome anime series named Zankyou no Terror. This song was featured in episode 9. The song is sung in Icelandic but we are lucky enough to have the English lyrics here as well. This song is classic Yoko Kanno. I love her music especially the songs she made for Cowboy Bebop, Hack Sign, Wolfs Rain and Ghost in the Shell

Icelandic lyrics:

(vetur, sumar, samanrenna)

Þar sem gróir, þar er von
allt sem græðir geymir von
úr klakaböndum kemur hún fram
af köldum himni fikrar sig fram

Þegar allt sýnist stillt, allt er kyrrt
allt er hljótt, kviknar von
meðan allt sækir fram, streymir fram
verður til, þá er von

hún lýsir allt sem er
allt sem er og var og verður
uns leggst í djúpan dvala
Í djúpi fjallasala

Þar sem glóir, þar er von
allt sem græðir geymir von
úr klakaböndum kemur hún fram
af köldum himni fikrar sig fram

Þegar allt sýnist stillt, allt er kyrrt
allt er hljótt, kviknar von
meðan allt sækir fram, streymir fram
verður til, þá er von

hún bræðir allt sem er
allt sem er og var og verður
uns leggst í djúpan dvala
Í draumum fjallasala

í eilíflegum hring…

English lyrics:

(winter, summer, converging)

where things glow, there is hope
all that heals has hope
out of bonds of ice, she appears
from a cold horizon, she inches herself forward

where all seems set, all is quiet
all is silent, hope is sparked
while everything advances, flows forward
comes into existence, then there’s hope

she illuminates everything there is
all that is and was and will be
until she lies in deep sleep
in the depths of the mountain halls

where things glow, there is hope
all that heals has hope
out of bonds of ice, she appears
from a cold horizon, she inches herself forward

where all seems set, all is quiet
all is silent, hope is sparked
while everything advances, flows forward
comes into existence, then there’s hope

she melts everything there is
all that is and was and will be
until she lies in deep sleep
in the dreams of the mountain halls

in an eternal circle…
