Agnes Obel - The Curse Lyrics




And the people went into their hide, they oh
From the start they didn't know exactly why, why
Winter came and made it so all look alike, look alike
Underneath the grass would grow, aiming at the sky

It was swift, it was just, another wave of a miracle
But no one, nothing at all would go for the kill
If they called on every soul in the land on the move
Only then would they know a blessing in disguise

The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before

Tell me now of the very souls that look alike, look alike
Do you know the stranglehold covering their eyes?
If I call on every soul in the land on the move
Tell me if I'll ever know a blessing in disguise

The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
And the curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before

    And the people went into their hide, they oh
    Ve insanlar onların saklanmalarına başladılar.
    From the start they didn’t know exactly why, why
    Başından beri neden tam olarak nedenini bilmiyorlardı, neden
    Winter came and made it so all look alike, look alike
    Kış geldi ve hepsi birbirine benziyordu, benziyordu
    Underneath the grass would grow, aiming at the sky
    Çimlerin altında, gökyüzünü hedef alarak büyüyecekti


    It was swift, it was just, another wave of a miracle
    Hızlıydı, sadece bir mucize dalgasıydı.
    But no one, nothing at all would go for the kill
    Ama hiç kimse, hiç bir şey öldürmeyecek.
    If they called on every soul in the land on the move
    Hareket halindeki topraklarda her ruhla çağrılırsa
    Only then would they know a blessing in disguise
    Ancak o zaman gizlice bir nimet tanıyorlardı


    The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    Lanet, yeraltından kıyıya inmişti.
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
    Ve umutları daha önce yaşamaya bir açlık ile büyüdü


    The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    Lanet, yeraltından kıyıya inmişti.
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
    Ve umutları daha önce yaşamaya bir açlık ile büyüdü


    Tell me now of the very souls that look alike, look alike
    Bana benzeyen ruhları anlat
    Do you know the stranglehold covering their eyes?
    Gözlerini kapatan boğazın farkında mısın?
    If I call on every soul in the land on the move
    Hareket halindeki topraktaki her ruhu ararsam
    Tell me if I’ll ever know a blessing in disguise
    Gizlice bir kutsamayı bilip bilmeyeceğimi söyle


    The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    Lanet, yeraltından kıyıya inmişti.
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
    Ve umutları daha önce yaşamaya bir açlık ile büyüdü
    And the curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    Ve lanet kıyı tarafından yeraltına indi.
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
    Ve umutları daha önce yaşamaya bir açlık ile büyüdü

    Long dark

  33. vishu sharma

    Why are girls the better musicians?

  34. Lucy Sanz

    Bella musica y bella voz!

  35. Pertinent Paradigm

    This isn't live, there's no one coughing, sniffling, or clearing their throat in the audience. Don't be an r-tard, I'm only joking, always annoyed me when live recordings are with an audience.

  36. Bruno Colucci

    Uma rola cintilante ....

  42. vulture

    When seven minutes feels like seconds.

  43. Laumi Nouche

    majestic

  44. Jo Mo

    A masterpiece so wonderfull

  45. musaire

    Vocal needs side chaining to cut through the instruments (hard to achieve live), otherwise 10/10.

  46. Russell R Rocke

    Haunting, yet beautiful. Can't seem to stop listening to this. I, too, have a hunger to live unlike before...

  61. Apothecleric

    this will always be heat

  62. Gabriel HAZE

    I love this song.
    Deep within my bones, something about it's core is additive to my soul.

    However, it is not just a song but a truth that no one has yet to realize.

    It's the lullaby of our nightmare.

  63. Metzok

    A musical golden nugget for sure! What fx are used by the viola and cello to record and then repeat what they're playing?

  64. mopey

    I love the time signature. The tune feels like a waltz when she comes in on the piano, and it contrasts the overall melancholy feeling of the piece. It creates a very interesting atmosphere.

  65. Eric Lamotte

    ♥♥♥

  66. Lil the Cat

    Best part 2:27

  67. Tatiana Almeida

    OMG!!! I LOVE SO MUCH THIS MUSIC!!! It's one of my favorites... The lyrics, the rhythm, EVERYTHING! Thanks for your wonderful work, Agnes and the whole band! I'm anxious for a new album!!!

  73. The Infected Fetus

    Listening to the curse is a blessing.

  74. Northling

    And the people went into their hide, they oh
    From the start they didn't know exactly why, why
    Winter came and made it so all look alike, look alike
    Underneath the grass would grow, aiming at the sky

    It was swift, it was just, another wave of a miracle
    But no one, nothing at all would go for the kill
    If they called on every soul in the land, on the moon
    Only then would they know a blessing in disguise

    The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
    The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before

    Tell me now of the very souls that look alike, look alike
    Do you know the stranglehold covering their eyes?
    If I call on every soul in the land, on the moon
    Tell me if I'll ever know a blessing in disguise

    The curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
    And the curse ruled from the underground down by the shore
    And their hope grew with a hunger to live unlike before
