    Because this song makes my eyes go fucking watery - probably because I have read the novels the musical is based on and know the relevant passage, how Kristina struggles with the question of the existence of God and the meaning of life etc.

    Lyrics - first my translation, then the original Swedish:

    You drove me out, God
    From my homeland I was torn
    Here I am a refugee and a stranger
    And that fate I accept

    But You took my child
    And You're taking me away from my husband
    I can no longer see any meaning
    What is it that You want?
    What shall I believe?

    The thought is staggering
    Before me gapes an abyss
    My entire being rebels and wants to say no
    The question is awakened
    And now my soul trembles before the answer
    That You do not exist
    Even though I believed in You

    Who would help me endure life out here?
    Who would give me the power that I must get?
    Who would comfort me, I am so small on Earth?
    If You don't exist?
    What shall I do then?

    No, You have to exist
    You must
    I'm living my life through You
    Without You I am a splinter on a dark and stormy sea
    You have to exist
    You must
    How can You then abandon me?
    I would be nowhere
    I would be nothing if You didn't exist

    Never before have I held it in speech or in thought
    That little word which scares me and torments me so
    The word is "if" - if I've said all prayers in vain
    If You don't exist
    What shall I do then?

    Who would feel my regret and then forgive?
    The peace in my soul, yes, who would grant it to me?
    Who would so receive me, eventually, after death?
    If You didn't exist
    Who would take care of me then?

    No, You have to exist
    You must
    I'm living my life through You
    Without You I am a splinter on a dark and stormy sea
    You have to exist
    You must
    How can You then abandon me?
    I would be nowhere
    I would be nothing if You didn't exist

    You have to exist
    You must
    How can You then abandon me?
    I would be nowhere
    I would be nothing if You didn't exist

    _______________________________________________________________

    Du fördrev mig, Gud
    Från mitt hemland slets jag bort
    Här är jag en flykting och en främling
    Och det ödet finner jag mig i

    Men du tog mitt barn
    Och du tar mig från min man
    Jag kan inte längre se en mening
    Vad är det du vill?
    Vad ska jag tro...

    Tanken är svindlande
    Framför mig gapar en avgrund
    Hela mitt väsen gör uppror och vill säga nej
    Frågan är väckt
    Och nu darrar min själ inför svaret
    Att du inte finns till
    Fast jag trodde på dig

    Vem skulle hjälpa mig uthärda livet här ute?
    Vem skulle ge mig den kraften som jag måste få?
    Vem skulle trösta mig, jag är så liten på jorden?
    Om du inte fanns till
    Ja, vad gjorde jag då?

    Nej, du måste finnas
    Du måste
    Jag lever mitt liv genom dig
    Utan dig är jag en spillra på ett mörkt och stormigt hav
    Du måste finnas
    Du måste
    Hur kan du då överge mig?
    Jag vore ingenstans
    Jag vore ingenting om du inte fanns


    Aldrig förut har jag haft det i tal eller tanke
    Det lilla ordet som skrämmer och plågar mig så
    Ordet är 'om', om jag bett alla böner förgäves
    Om du inte finns till
    Vad ska jag göra då?

    Vem skulle känna min ånger och sedan förlåta?
    Friden i själen, ja, vem skulle skänka mig den?
    Vem skulle så ta emot mig till slut efter döden?
    Om du inte fanns till
    Vem tog hand om mig sen?

    Nej, du måste finnas
    Du måste
    Jag lever mitt liv genom dig
    Utan dig är jag en spillra på ett mörkt och stormigt hav
    Du måste finnas
    Du måste
    Hur kan du då överge mig?
    Jag vore ingenstans
    Jag vore ingenting om du inte fanns

    Du måste finnas
    Du måste
    Hur kan du då överge mig?
    Jag vore ingenstans
    Jag vore ingenting om du inte fanns

    What are the books in question? Existential crises from once devout religious followers is always something that interests me due what a profound sort of change it must be (and not because I'm an atheist and enjoy seeing religious people lose their faith - which I don't). Really any sort of massive fundamental personality or faith crisis well articulated in a story intrigues me, things where people's lives irrevocably change in some way. Not necessarily in a cruel or morbid way either, though I do like those too.

    I'm always a little wary of posting satire videos as I think people who are into politics often find such content too funny, rather than slightly mildly funny. Like they find it so righteously satisfyingly and such an hilarious critique that they can't help but take an angry-happy gurning wank over it. It spoils it for everyone.

    With that note, gurn away. Non-Brits can bask in Schadenfreude:

    I'm no particular fan of the EU, but that was hilarious!

    Quality viewing, and it's actually Andy Serkis:

    All I can think of is that Theresa May's chest looks surprisingly hairy in that video.
