"Aquarius" as written by Claus Norreen and Soren Rasted....
Aquarius, was born the night
The shining stars, needed brighter shining light
Aquarius, was my savior
It came along, like a blast from out of sight

When I was weak, you came along
Enlightened me, covered the sun
You seduced me, I can never ever run

'Cause I, can only lose
When I'm, Aquarius
You're the power that I need
To make it all succeed, can you hear me call?

Aquarius, is the stardust
It kills the faith, and the only one I trust
It calls your name, and you listen
It steals your soul, and your hunger and your lust

For life, and being free (it's killing me, it's killing me)
It's dragging you, it's killing me (it's killing me, it's killing me)
You seduced me, I can never ever run

'Cause I, can only lose
When I'm, Aquarius
You're the power that I need
To make it all succeed, can you hear me call? Can you hear me call?

I wish the stars would turn you in, and leave me standing in the wind
I wish the devil gave you up, and all the snow would melt and stop

This is it, I can't run away
You're controlling my life, and I can hear me say

'Cause I, can only lose
When I'm, Aquarius
Your the power that I need
To make it all succeed

I wish the stars would turn you in, and leave me standing in the wind
I wish the devil gave you up, and all the snow would melt and stop

    General Commenti love this song...the music, vocals, and wrods are great!! I can't exactly figure out what it means...on the CD there's a feature that tells you about the track, but all the guys talk about is the piano and the music, not the meaning, lol!

    General CommentThis song is beautiful...and at first I thought it was about jesus but he's not Aquarius right? :P.....So I think the song is about getting all you need to win the race then finding out you need one more thing to make it to the race...like your car but your car is out of gas...but theres always the chance that you might be able to get gas...

    General CommentI think the key lines are:

    "This is it - I cant run away – you’re controlling my life - and I can hear me say
    I - can only lose - when I’m – Aquarius"

    So clearly the speaker is torn, they want to be free of "Aquarius" but they hear themselves saying that it isn't possible. Now Aquarius is something that's controlling but at the same time the speaker seems to think it's propping up their life

    "Your the power that I need - to make it all succeed"

    The two normal references to a controlling influence in a situation like this is a typically a person or an addiction. The fact that the speaker states that "Aquarius" came around when they were vulnerable doesn't really clear that up one way or another.

    "When I was weak - you came along
    Enlightened me - covered the sun
    You seduced me - I can never ever run"

    The one line I can find to support the drug angle is:

    "It calls your name - and you listen - it steals your soul - and your hunger and your lust"

    Saying how you stop having any ambition, no desire to live when you're so fully addicted to something.

    Right below that, however, "Aquarius" is referenced in a way I don't see a anthropomorphized addiction being used normally:

    "For life - and being free
    Its dragging you - its killing me"

    Usually there's no "downside" to the addiction's part of the relationship as stated here about being dragged. Any thoughts on this?

    General CommentCan anyone make out what's being said in the background during the line "Cause I - can only lose - when I’m - Aquarius" after the "For life - and being free
    Its dragging you - its killing me
    You seduced me – I can never ever run" stanza? It's the only one that has two extra lines. To me it sounds like after "I - can only lose (the words I can't refuse) - when I'm - (the words, the words) Aquarius. After the "I wish the stars would turn you in" stanza the first background lyric is "the words, the words", no second background lyric.

    General CommentAfter she sings "Can only lose" the voices say "It's the words I can't refuse"... ;) And about what happened to Aqua, they split up in August 2001. Lene once had an embarrasing accident in a show (she fainted and had diarrea), and René insisted on making a pact, so that no one else should ever know... However, he should be the one to tell in his authorbiography "Popdreng" (Popboy)... Søren who is married to Lene really didn't like that, and René told him that "I don't give a fuck"... The story has remained unofficial in a while, because AQUA didn't like to talk about it... But last year a documentary was made about them... They will never be back again...

    General CommentAm I the only one that thinks that Aquarius might be the CD, the band itself? The fact that she's in this band is holding her down, it's controlling her life. It sounds like it made her a star, but she didn't understand the negative effects at the time. Now she wants out but she feels attached to it.
