about

A song about a relationship that’s about to end because you just can’t find enough time to actually see each other… And about touring, obviously. I’m not sure exactly when I wrote this song, but it’s certainly older (2008-ish) than the latest intensive Only Seven Left tour. So don’t worry about the lyrics, I changed my mind about touring! I realize this is one of my most in-the-face and sarcastic songs ever, especially the part where I call myself a whore haha.

The drums were recorded by Sander during the demo sessions for the OSL album in 2009. I recorded several versions of the song, acoustic, with beats, with lots of synthesizers… but I liked this rock version best. Because it rocks.

lyrics

It's just another Saturday night
I’m in car full of friends
Making memories “we’ll never forget”

You said we would be more than alright
I am wondering and waiting
But it’s mostly just waiting

Five more minutes ‘till showtime
35 more minutes and I’m back on my feet

And I call you from the backseat
But you don’t pick up your phone
I wonder why your so busy tonight

I could say you’re never around
But it’s not a good start
Of a nice conversation

I tell you you’re the star of my doubts
And you say that it’s great
That’s is great how I miss you

Five more minutes ‘till showtime
35 more minutes and I’m back on my feet

And I call you from the backstage
But you don’t pick up your phone
I wonder why your so busy tonight

Sometimes I feel like a travelling circus
A cry for attention, a whore
They’re calling my name and I’m not even nervous
I can’t say I’m touched anymore

And I call you when I'm when back home
But you don’t pick up your phone
I wonder why your so busy tonight
