"She Came Home For Christmas" as written by and Silas Utke Graae Joergensen Johan Haslund Wohlert....
Don't touch her there, she's blindfolded.
She remembers on the bus.
Into my heart. Don't remember.
Like you left us without notice.

Now you've come back. Like you left us.
Like you owe us. Into my heart.
It's not me, it can't be.
It's not you. I can't do what I do if it's you. This is not happening.

Don't touch her there. She told me.
She remembers how it was.
Into my heart. Don't remember.
Like you left us without notice.

It's not me, it can't be.
It's not you. I can't do what I do if it's you. This is not happening.
It's not me, it can't be.
It's not you. I can't do what I do if it's you. This is not happening.

Come home. Come home.
It's not me, it can't be.
It's not you. I can't do what I do if it's you. This is not happening.
It's not me, it can't be.

It's not you. I can't do what I do if we're through. This is not happening.
Don't touch her there. He watched her.
She knew his look. From behind.
When she came home for Christmas.

    General CommentTo me this song is about rape. I was a victim of sexual abuse for many years (age 3 to 16) and that distanced me from my family because that was where it all took place, but when my older sister had a baby I realised that I wanted to be a part of it. So I "came home for christmas", I returned to my roots and decided to love my parents and my sisters no matter how much I wish they'd been able to protect me from my much older brother's abuse.
    This song to me kind of expresses how my boy- and girlfriends through the years have felt when I've explained, how they've been forced to realize that the scars won't ever disappear totally and I still feel very insecure about my sexuality and how to express it. My longest relationship was with a guy I met when I was fifteen, I didn't tell him anything until after two years (yes, I was his girlfriend during the last years of abuse), and when I did tell him he asked himself all these questions. He couldn't believe that we'd had sex sometimes the same day I was abused, and he never really got over the fact that him and I had sex though I really wasn't ready and didn't want to. Anyways, after that relationship I started being more open about these issues, now I know how to say no and I'm not ashamed for what I've been through anymore.
    Sorry for writing so much egocentrical stuff but I really felt like telling my story since it's perfect for this song, at least to me. Peace and love, everyone!

    General CommentFelis, thankyou for sharing that, it was a beautiful story.
    This song hits home in a way for me as well. I was not ever abused myself, but 2 of my friends were, and my mother was a therapist for victims of sexual abuse/rape.
    "Don't touch her there
    She told me
    She remembers how it felt"
    These lines hurt the most for me. My friend shared the events of her abuse, she told me, she remembered what she did. And then the girl moved away soon after that- "Like you left us without notice."
    In another case, I heard the story of a girl I used to be best friends with, how she was raped by a friend. "It's not you" for me relates to my utter shock of who the person was who did it to her.
    "This is not happening" is an excuse many family members use to cover up the truth that someone they love is being abused- they don't want to admit what's really going on.
    In the video, the bear is killed by an evil being, and the young woman transforms into a little girl. I saw this as the girl's innocence being stripped from her (bear dying) and she'd been forced to grow up to fast when infact she's simply a child.
    This is such a gorgeous song and means so much to me. Everything about it is brilliant.

    General CommentI kind of thought that the woman was abused physically by her husband or something and then left and abandoned her children and this song is about how they felt. The whole "come home" part makes me think of the children pleading with their mother to come back because they don't know why she left - "Like you left us without notice". That's probably totally off though.

    General CommentI dont think its about rape.. I cant really describe what I think its about, but something like meeting this someone again, after he/she left you hurted, sad and broken hearted. The person you still love is coming home/coming back to you but you know its wrong to love him/her because you remember the pain in your heart he/she left you with.
    The person havent changed so you just know it is going to hurt you again, but you cant do anything about it because you're in love..
    I dont know if Im right or if you understand me at all :p But.. I dont think Im able to describe my thoughts about this fantastic song. I guess everyone has got their own ideas about it..

    Finally.. I think they use the bear in the movie because it sounds a bit like he is singing "Dont touch her bear" in the beginning haha. But i dont know.. Dont touch her heart.. is the meaning i guess.

    General CommentHas anybody heard the version of this song on their "A Triumph for Man" album? I think I like that version better than the one on "Frengers" (which is still amazing).

    General CommentOk, my English is'nt to good, but i'll try as good as i can.

    In the first version of this song (on the album "A triumph For man"), the text isn't

    "Don't touch her there
    He watched her
    She knew his look from behind
    When she came home for christmas."

    But:

    "Don't touch her there
    He watched her
    She knew his look from behind
    Don't touch her there,
    when he f*cked her."

    Heres the original version:
    youtube.com/…

    So i se no other meaning than rape.
    I also tried to find other solutions, because i think it's too sad :(
    But some songs just is sad.
    Thank you for reading.
    (I'm not sure if my english is right, i'm norwegian so i tried to make my text as short and easy as possibile)
