Agnes Obel - Dorian Lyrics

They won't know who we are
So we both can pretend
It's written on the mountains
A line that never ends

As the devil spoke we spilled out on the floor
And the pieces broke and the people wanted more
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carry on
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on

Swaying like the children
Singled out for praise
The inside out on the open
With the straightest face

As the sad-eyed woman spoke we missed our chance,
The final dying joke caught in our hands
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carry on
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on

Dorian, carry on
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on
Dorian, will you follow us down

    My name is Fridolin. When will someone make a song about this name? 🤔

  7. SubToTangy

    *when you type in your own name*

  8. Claudio da Veiga Faria

    O volume do piano ficou muito alto em relação aos instrumentos de arco.

  9. mnmlst

    Can anyone recomend me more artists who plays in this ambiance? Her studio albums are very different from this presentation, and I liked this style more.


    Check out Jazz Morley, disconnected. Not terribly similar, but worth a listen!


    @MrsKlausen thanks, it's not my style and vocal preference, but thanks!

  10. b dbs

    Thanks for the great Music. "Aventine" is 1 of my go to albums for substance & superb sonic properties. Played in a Reference class DAP / IEM set, simply sublime...

  11. earl vasquez

    that violin line at 4:31 is just nirvana

  12. Peter Rosengren Wallin

    Music for heart, soul and mind. A cliché but alas, true.

  17. Gregory Reshetniak

    Is there a CD of the live session?

  18. Marina Marti

    Does somebody know what piano is she playing? I have a special brand in my mind, but I'm not sure it really is.

  19. miskol adhikari

    ini lagu emang bisa membuat tenang,ditemani secangkir kopi

  20. Hendrik Glaser

    Love on the first look❤️

  21. Juan David Vallejo Londoño

    ¿¿¿Qué es esto??? bendito el algoritmo que esta recomendación me dio. Hacía años no escuchaba estos ritmos, esta dulce melodía, que sabia arrulla, que tierna aconseja. A cualquiera de ellas tres besaría con pasión, en busca quizá de su ritmo o de su amor.

  22. Erik Buchholz

    I think I am in love.


    Beautiful 💜💜💜

    Just found this group and my goodness you're all amazing musicians.

  26. tebriz rehimov

    From 4.30 the music makes you fall into the outer space

  27. CRASS2047

    Kids, enjoy music as much as possible while young. While this music is some of the most beautiful I’ve ever heard, I would give my left arm to have discovered it at 18. Music had a much more profound effect on me then. I believe it’s because by 40 you have learned so much, you simply don’t have the remaining hard drive space to let this amazing work in as deep. While my friends were loving Tupac and biggie, I was loving Tori Amos and Fiona Apple.

  28. mehmet akif gul

    It's a great song 😀😀😀

  29. Sofia Caccia

    She's incredible

    Will you come along to the end

    Will you ever let us carry on"

    scares, the parallel with the hurricane

  45. Tae Jun

    am I the only one totally confused by the sound of the piano, like, where is the piano?


    It's a prepared piano: You see, there's a cloth placed between the hammers and the strings, which muffles the sound.


    But true, the effect is great!

  46. Olivier Vanderveken

  51. Jane Chap

    Carri Jackson

    I think they muffled it with cloth or something

    que música incrível..

  93. KINDLE

    "I'm in the Studio! I'm showing off! Are you ready? Coz I'm about to close my eyes as I sing".

    It's all in mono, has feedback phasing on the vocals, a uselessly muted piano, & a few pretentious strings flurries, no EQ, or spatial positioning what so ever but as long as you get the really big Circular Light in shot, you can prove to everyone that you are the most wealthy of artists.

    And as we all know, the wealthiest of artist are the best!!

  94. Emre Kara

    I just found this treasure! Just WOW! I love it!
