Norway - Hjerteslag (Heartbeat)



This year's contribution is centered around the theme of refugees. The pupils want the world to know that we sympathize with the refugees coming to Norway, and that we want to do our best to include them in our school and in society as a whole.

Here are the lyrics of the song translated into english:

Heartbeat
You came sailing here in a boat, 
away from your home, and you cried. 
You were so afraid when you came to our school.
You can come home with me,
become my very best friend. 
Even though you come with big wounds.

You have come ...

Your heart beats, and your feet walk and walk.
You have come to a city where you are new.
We just want everything to be alright,
so that nobody wants to leave.

Refrain:
No heartbeats,
can pass without us seing them clearly.
Nothing can strengthen more
than you coming ...

You ran away from your country,
tiny and scared.
You came here to get peace and quietness
We will help your wounds to heal,
we want to build a bridge of friends.
You are going to be here for many years ahead. 


You have come ... 
Your heart beats, and your feet walk and walk.
You have come to a city where you are new.
We just want everything to be alright,
so that nobody wants to leave.

Refrain:
No heartbeats,
can pass without us seing them clearly.
Nothing can strengthen more
than you coming ...

Rap/ poem in arabic. (Lyrics are in the video) 

Refrain: No heartbeats,
can pass without us seing them clearly.
Nothing can strengthen more
than you coming ...

No heartbeats,
can pass without us seing them clearly.
Nothing can strengthen more,
than you coming home,
than you coming home.

  2. Fabulous!
    What a powerful message you send out right across Europe. Your video tells the story beautifully and sensitively.
    What more to say? It's so emotional!
    Well done Norway once again - Marek in Poland captured my thoughts so well earlier when he said "That's why I love Schoolovision!"
    Good luck from Scotland.

  22. A really beautiful video with such an important message. Some of the children at our school speak Arabic and they loved the Arabic rap! Your singing was wonderful and it was so clever with the hearts at the end. You should be very proud. Well done.
