paul oscar Páll Óskar Einn Dans

Paul Oscar, the king of Icelandic pop and Eurovision veteran extraordinaire, is at it again. This week he’s welcomed the short Icelandic summer with his new single “Þá mætir þú til mín”, which translates as “Come to me”.

The song is everything we love about Paul Oscar. It has a strong beat and the singer’s silky-smooth voice gives it major finesse. The lyrics subtly tackle the issue of loving someone who society thinks is not “suitable” and how that very same love can help one overcome all obstacles, no matter what.

Paul — who placed 20th at Eurovision 1997 — has been known to get straight to the point when it comes to LGBT rights.

He showed the world that last year when he explained homosexuality to children in a delicate and understandable way. This song is another milestone on his journey towards achieving acceptance for everyone.

“Þá mætir þú til mín” (Come to Me)— English lyrics and translation

I know that everything I now love the most

is the opposite of everything I was taught

I know it is forbidden

but still its so nice, so right.

 

If you want to go

where no desires are wrong

Come to me

come to me

come to me

 

If you want to turn up the heat

with someone

just come to me

 

If you need a good friend

someone who knows you inside and out

who gives and listens and gets

everything you are saying

 

If you want to go

where no desires are wrong

come to me

come to me

come to me

 

And if you want to turn up the heat

with someone

just come to me

If we had 100 % televote in 1997, Iceland would be in TOP 10 , almost all points they got from countries who had televote voting, Sweden 8 points, UK 6 points, 2 points form Austria , 5 countries voted that year with televote and 2 points from Estonia juries.
