IN THE SPACE BETWEEN I SOMETIMES MAKE SONGS

Home

In 2004 I lived in a small house in my hometown Ørsta. The house and I were taken over by bird fleas. This song reflects on that and how, in spite of  this forced eviction from my house, I felt at home there.

 

I’ve been out of luck
cause when I got in this house so did mr. Louse
and I don’t really have a clue what to do
I’ll let the bedbugs bite don’t put up no fight but now I’ve had it
I’m sick and tired of being luxury food

But every obstacle every popstickle in the world
could ever lure me out of this house
Cause it’s got my soul in a fishbowl
it’s where I call home
such a nice place to be

Feels like I’m going down oh oh oh oh oh oh
Feels like we’re down with the place I call home

In the town I live I’ve got everything
I’m a lonely wolverine
but I don’t really have a choice
All my friends have gone all apart from one
but he alone fulfills my needs

But every obstacle every popstickle in the world
could ever lure me out of this town
But for a year or two I might leave you
but I won’t be blue for my love for you is true

Feels like I’m going down oh oh oh oh oh oh
Feels like we’re down with the place I call home

Weeh Ooh

Wrote this in 2001. I was exhausted. Now, singing it, always gives me energy. The incredible Stig Ulv plays guitar on this.

 

I’m feeling seasick, but I am not sailing
My stomache hurts, but it’s not that time of the month,
My only memories are from the days that are past
I’m burning out but what have I really achieved?

I cover up the dark rings under my eyes
put on my smile and my workng hard spirit
I’m feeling hot, but not like I’m sexy
the fever’s high and yet it is rising

Weeh Ooh the everyday pressure is taking me over
Weeh Ooh I’m burning up I’m all burned out

Would I like it if I had nothing to do
Would there be some more time for you
Would I feel more free and relaxed
thinking: hey, I’m wasting my life

Weeh Ooh the everyday pressure is taking me over
Weeh Ooh I’m burning up I’m all burned out
