Norway

When we first met she said, “Let´s go to Norway
And leave this crowded, troubled land behind!
Norway is big and on a fjord there somewhere
We´ll find our piece of peace of mind.”

I liked her smile. I liked her crazy idea.
She thought finally she had found a friend,
The first and only one who´d ever understand her
And her dreams would come true in the end.

Hej heja heja heja heja ho
(Hej - hej på deg -hej.)
Hej heja heja heja heja ho
(Du - ha det bra - da.)
Hej heja heja heja heja heja
(Hej - hej på deg -hej.)
Ho.
(Hej.)

The years went by. We stayed together.
I found a job. I found some friends. I found joy in my life.
She waited home alone till some dark thought came to her.
It really cut her like a knife.

She said, “Hey, listen, man! We won´t be young forever!
Time´s passing by, but nothing has changed here!”
I said, “Be calm, be calm! I really plan for Norway.
Just give me one more lousy year!”

CHORUS

She packed her bags, started a new life somewhere.
She may find out things by herself again.
He sits at home. Sometimes he thinks of Norway.
Well, honesty does hurt the same.
