Mikael Wiehe - En sång till modet



May I introduce Mikael Wiehe from Malmö, Sweden, who has had an amazing career since the 1970s, on the "Silence" record label, and stayed very true and close to his roots, thinking about workers and people who don't have such an easy time. Live concert, winter of 2008.

Here is a song to courage (modet, an ancient Swedish word for "brave")
It is for all who dared to believe in love (kärlek or kär lek, "love play")
Even though the night
Is so long

Here is a song to courage
A little, simple song
It may seem meaningless
But I sing it
Anyway

Here is a song to courage
For joy and hope and laughter
It is for all who dared to believe in love
Even though hatred is so strong

For all who build bridges
For all who let it in
For all who think man can do, what he wants

Here is a song to courage
For those who say the truth
For all who makes demands
For those who knows how difficult it is
And yet, they say, "yes"

(Chorus 2.25)

Here is a song for all of you
Who refuse to give up
It is for all who dared to believe in love
Here is a song for all
Even though life is so hard
For all who still have longings

...who demands the rights they are entitled to

Here is a song to courage
It is from me to you
A little simple song
About what I want to really say.

It will grow and spread
So take good care of it
Then it will grow and spread
In all of Swedish land
