deep down the basement
(egil olsen)

every song i make is turning blue
i don’t wanna write them but i do
every little word I’m putting down is true

every single time i try to write
something sweet and colourful and bright
i get lost and end up in the black of night

i been deep down the basement now
but i’m crawling back up
i’ve had enough of the darkness now
it’s time to lighten things up

everyone around me say that i’ll
end up as an old and grumpy guy
if i don’t get up and give it one more try

i been deep down the basement now
but i’m crawling back up
i’ve had enough of the darkness now
i think it’s time to lighten things up



"for a while everythinhg i wrote was boring and down right sad.
way beyond the usual singer / songwriter melancholy. writing
about not wanting to write those kind of songs did the trick.
