Sweden, Sweden, beloved friend
A tiger in shame
I know how it feels
When gravity becomes a joke
When silence is feared
What has happened?

Welcome, welcome
Whoever you are
Wherever you are

Set the table at your porch for a feast
For a long distanced guest
In the country moderate is best
We toast for another midsummer
Fresh potatoes and herring
As if time stood still

Welcome, welcome
Whoever you are
Wherever you are

The rain is hitting the windows now
But the night is bright in a country without sound
And the glasses glitters quietly at our table
As empty as words
Love sure is grand

Welcome, welcome
Whoever you are
Wherever you are
