Hej!

Vad betyder "ved og ved"?

Läste texten till "Smuk som et stjerneskud" och förstår inte frasen! Wiktionary ger definitionerna ved=vid (by), ved=ved, ved=vet... I en översättning av sången stod det "lasting and lasting"...

    So the context is a love song and your question pertains to the following lines,

    Hun er bare min store kærlighed,
    der bli’r større, der bli’r ved og ved.



    She is just the love of my life (lit. ‘my great love’)
    that keeps growing (lit. ‘gets bigger’), that goes on and on.

    (In other words, the second line has two restrictive clauses; the relative pronoun ‘der’ refers to ‘the love’ mentioned in the first line, i.e. the love goes on and on)
