ABBA: "Jag har en dröm"

Hello,

I'm sure most of you know the Swedish band ABBA and some of their songs. A lot of them are also available with Swedish texts on Youtube.

I found a Swedish version of the song "I have a dream" on Youtube but I didn't find the lyrics written down somewhere on the internet. So I tried to understand the text and write down the lyrics myself. I really understood most of it but not everything so I'd like to ask you to listen to this song (a bit cheesy but really beautiful) and help me to find the rest of the lyrics.

This is what I already have:

Jag har en dröm, jag har en sang, den sjunger jag mot hot och tvang. Vill man tror pa under, saga och legend, kan man ta sitt öde utan att bli bränd. Jag vill tro att änglar visar oss nat gott i allt vi ser. Jag vill tro att änglar viskar oss att drömmar kan bli fler. En evig ström. Jag har en dröm.

Jag har en dröm som ingen vet. Den lyser upp min verklighet. Om jag gar i mörker gar jag ända fri. Jag kan finna vägen med min fantasie. Jag vill tro att änglar visar oss nat gott i allt vi ser. Jag vill tro att änglar viskar oss att drömmar kan bli fler. En evig ström. Jag har en dröm. En evig ström. jag har en dröm.

And here's the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHJ_NEGC5cY

Wish you all a nice day!

I know the first verse by heart, here you go:

jag har en dröm
jag har en sång
den sjunger jag
mot hot och tvång

vill man tro på under
saga och legend
kan man ta sitt öde
utan att bli bränd

If nobody's given you the full version when I come home tonight, remind me and I'll parse it for you. :)

No sweat. :) I took a quick peek and you seem to have gotten almost everything correct from the rest. Just a few minor corrections: ljuser should be lyser, drömar should be drömmar, and mörken should be mörker. I think that was all, plus some ås but I imagine those are because they're missing from your keyboard. You did quite well, I must say.

...den sjunger jag mot hot och tvång... ...tro på under saga och legend... ...utan att bli bränd... ...i mörker går jag ändå fri. That is what I hear, but Swedish is not my native language.

Tack sa mycket for that link! It sounds so beautiful in Swedish, made me choke up och tear up. I am in love with Swedish. I drive everyone around me a little crazy with my enthusiasm for it.
