    Swedish, actually my native language, living in a bilingual country, is a very beautiful and melodic language. I think Eva has done something tremendous, in Who lights the stars = Vem tänder stjärnorna. Translation mine.



    Lyrics:

    Det var evighetssekunder Seconds of eternity
    Tre korta andetag Three short breaths
    Hela livet vände All of life was turned
    Vem valde Who chose
    Inte jag Not me
    Jag hörde ord från mina läppar I heard words from my lips
    Som aldrig vilat i min mun That never rested in my mouth
    Tankar aldrig tänkta Thoughts never thought
    Som nya väggar i ett rum Like new walls in a room

    Som om vi alltid älskat Like we always had loved
    Sen min dagboks första blad Since my diary's first page
    Men att jag får skriva ditt liv But to write your life
    Bara tur Mere luck
    Det var inget val It was no choice
    Av alla dessa möten Of all these meetings
    Och allt som borde hänt And all that should have happened
    Hur sällan är jag orsak How rare am I the reason
    Till att livet vänt To the life to turn

    Jag har ingen ödestro I have no faith in destiny
    Den tanken ger ingen ro The thought gives no trust
    Men vem vänder vindarna But who turns the winds
    Vem får mej att gå Who makes me walk
    Dit jag aldrig gått Where I never went
    Vem tänder stjärnorna Who lights the stars
    Som bara jag ser i dina ögon Only I see in your eyes
    Vem vänder vindarna Who turns the winds
    Och för mej dit And takes me where
    Min tanke My thought
    Aldrig nått Never reached

    Så många år som jag levt All years that I lived
    Med den jag ville va' With the one I wanted to be
    Så många kvinnor som jag spelat As many women I've acted
    Men aldrig gjort det bra But never did it well
    Måste våga bara vara Just need to dear to be
    Med minnet av det barn With the memory of the child
    Som lät livet välja Who chose life to be
    Och våga säga ja And dear say yes
    Har ingen ödestro Have no faith in destiny
    Den tanken ger ingen ro It gives no peace of mind

    Men vem vänder vindarna Who turns the winds
    Vem får mig att gå dit jag aldrig gått Who makes me go where I never went
    Vem tänder stjärnorna Who lights the stars
    Som bara jag ser i dina ögon Only I see in your eyes
    Vem vänder vindarna Who turns the winds
    Och för mig dit min tanke aldrig nått And takes me where my thought never reached

    Vem tänder stjärnorna Who lights the stars
    Som bara jag ser I only see
    I dina ögon In your eyes
    Vem vänder vindarna Who turns the winds
    Vem får mig att gå Who makes me go
    Dit jag aldrig gått Where I never went
    Vem tänder stjärnorna Who lights the stars
    Som bara jag ser Only I see
