"Shoreline" is written by Henrik Berggren...
Ever since I was eight or nine.
I've been standing on the shoreline
All my life I've been waiting for something lasting

Oh this town kills you when you are young
Oh this town it kills you when you are young.

I'm not the boy that I used to be
This town has got the youth of me
All the eyes turn hollow
From the work of sorrow

You die young
You die when you're young
You die when you're young

We are shadows
Oh, we're shadows
Just shadows in the alley

Standing on the paving
By the office building
There's so much to do
Never time for you

You die young
You die when you're young
You die when you're young

We are shadows
Oh, we're shadows
Just shadows in the alley

I've got nothing
Nothing to wait for
Nothing to wait for

Ooh
Where is life in this town?
Where is life in this town?
