No idea I doubt anyone here would know unless they were from Iceland. It's not exactly a widely spoken language. Do we have any icelandic interferencers?

I do know it's the lyrics to "svefn-g-englar" by Sigur Ros. svefn-g-englar means sleepwalkers but that's all I know.

Also, I think some of the letters came out wrong. I'm going to try to post what it should look like:

g er kominn aftur

a er svo gott a vera hr
en stoppa stutt vi
g flt um nearsjvar hi

At www.sigur-ros.co.uk on the song lyrics and translations page it says you can email them at translations@sigur-ros.co.uk if you want a rough translation of a song. Maybe you could try that.
