Weeh Ooh

by Karen Rosenberg Olsen

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
