When I saw you, long ago
And how much does it hurt
When I remember it

 
Frisian:
Doe 't ik dy seach lang ferlyn
En wat docht it dochs sear
As ik d'r wer oan tink
 
Dutch:
Toen ik je zag, lang geleden
En wat doet het toch zeer
Als ik er weer aan denk

You are so sweet, nothing else
You simply just do nothing wrong
I love you just as you are
I hope you know anyway

 
Do bist net oars as leaf
Want do dochst gewoan neat ferkeard
Ik hâld fan dy sa asto bist
Datst dat dan wol efkes wist
 
Jij bent niet anders dan lief
Want jij doet gewoon niets verkeerd
Ik hou van je zoals je bent
Dat je dat maar even weet

Twarres (1999) is a duo from Friesland (or Frisia), singing both in Frisian and in English. The first two members were Mirjam Timmer (1982) and Johan van der Veen (1981). In 2007 however, Johan got problems with singing and playing the guitar. It turned out he had a progressive muscular disease. He had to end his musical career and was replaced by Kristian Dijkstra.

In 1999 Twarres won the public vote of the Frisian Song Festival with the song 'Wêr bisto'. As a result they could record the song as a single. They were asked to play the song during a television show and after that singer Marco Borsato asked them to play it during his concerts. In this way the song became popular nationwide.

The song reached the number one position in the national hit parade, the Top 40. It was the first Frisian number-one-song and it remained six weeks on that position. Besides this enourmous success in the Netherlands, it also became a hit in Flanders, Belgium (four weeks on the number one position).

Twarres won an Edison Music Award in 2002. They released two albums so far and seven singles.

Another Frisian song that became a national hit, that's also translated and included on this website, is 'A brand new day'/'In nije dei'.
