"It´s called “Hiras- Demure” and talks about being so shy you don´t have any confidence in anyone – not even yourself." - Elin Kåven

Don fertet gávdnat mu
Ozašit go mu?
Mun in boađe ieš

Jus hálidat háleštit
gažadivččet go mu?
Mun in jeara ieš

Mun lean nu hiras ja hearki

Ja fertet boahtit lagabui
boađe lagabui
de gulat mu

Mun in jáhke masage
In oaivvil in maidege
Jus don it muital maid

Mun lean nu hiras ja hearki

Mun in luohte in geasage
In oaju in geasage
In alccen ge

In mun nagot in maidege
In nákce in maidege
Jus it mieđuš mu



You have to find me
Would you look for me?
I won´t come by myself

If you want to talk
Would you ask me?
I don´t respond by myself

I am so demure and fragile

You have to come closer
come closer
to hear me

I don´t believe in anything
I don´t have an opinion
If you don´t tell me what

I am so demure and fragile

I don´t trust anyone
I don´t have faith in anyone
not even myself

I´m not able to do anything
I can´t do anything
If you don´t accompany me
