"Waltz for Koop" as written by Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Gustaf Zingmark....
We never seem to find peace of mind
We're always on the run, away from the sun
And we've only just begun

You say we've overcome, nothing is wrong
You say our job is done, the battle is won
But we've only just begun

You say our job is done, the battle is won
But we've only just begun

    Song MeaningHuh. I'll take a crack at it.
    I think the song is about a couple of DJ's, but it's open to interpretation.
    "We're always on the run from the sun"
    If the sun is meant to be taken literally, then they're always in the nightclubs, doing what they do best.
    "You say our job is done, the battle is won. But we've only just begun."
    One of them feels proud of their accomplishments and doesn't feel the need to try to innovate.
    The narrator, however, feels that they're only scratching the surface of music.
    The title, "Waltz for Koop", could mean that the song is basically their mission statement.
    They're digging deeper into music in order to make it better (They think).

    General CommentQuite a random idea there from TheRandomGuy...

    I think the song may be about a couple where one of them thinks that now that they've finally got together all their problems are over, "the battle is won" (they might have had to overcome some obstacles to be together,) but the narrator thinks that this is only the beginning of their struggle, they've "only just begun" and their relationship is still going to be tested, and that a true relationship isn't necessarily all roses and puppies. But it doesn't sound negative, she is just trying to be pragmatic.
    Maybe it could be about a couple where one of them was married to someone else when they fell in love, or maybe even a gay couple, something anyway that makes them feel like they have had to hide and lie and have secrets "away from the sun".
    Anyway just an idea.

    What I really like about this song is that it's in triple time, which is not as common in pop music.

    General Commenthmm ok. interesting interpretation from RandomGuy

    sometimes it reminds me also of a couple having gone through rough patches - but not just regular fights and stuff. it reminds me of this terrible book I read called Rebecca. this girl marries a man who had killed his ex-wife and was trying to get himself through - their house gets burned down and they're shaken up by a court affair. by the end of the book the couple are basically suffering from PTSD. i didn't care much for the book but the empathy for a man who's killed his wife stuck with me.

    anyway, this tune goin' is inspired by, if not borrowed from, "Gymnopédie No. 1" by Erik Satie. this song actually introduced me to that composition. if any of you haven't, you MUST give it a listen. Other works by him are definitely worth listening to if you're into that kind of thing.
    I really adore both the original and this song.
