in the middle of norway
(egil olsen)

14th of april 1980
i was a brand new born baby
but this seemed like such a lonely place to be
born in the middle of norway

i wanted more i wanted dreams come true
and all those things you couldn't find round there i drew
it seemed like the only thing i could do
growin up in the middle of norway

it was cold - grey
nothing was ever more than ok
in the middle of norway

finally got the nerve to make a change and leave
over mountains over fiords to chase the dream
it seemed like the only right thing to do
to get out of the middle of norway

cold - grey
nothing was ever more than ok
in the middle of norway

i don't mean to be mean i mean
a guy like me a guy with dreams has needs you see
i'm not that brave i'm just afraid
to give up and go home
get a life and a loan
and get stuck in the middle of norway



"the title was born a long time ago. it's very fancy."
