"You Weren't There" as written by and Lene Marlin(marlin, Pedersen....
She came home, just won the game
Long time struggle she fulfilled her dream
All she wanted was to make you proud,
You weren't there

He had his birthday few days ago
He got some presents, a big party too
And there were congratulation calls
As the years before, not ever one from you

You weren't there, distant, far away
It's like this every day, they see you in their heads
Wonder if you'll come
Afraid to close their eyes, and miss you once again

She cut herself on a piece of paper
It didn't hurt, but she saw the blood
She could need that embrace, you weren't there

Did he have to cry louder,
Would that make you hear him
You see, his heart was broken, for the first time

You weren't there, distant, far away
It's like this every day, they see you in their heads
Wonder if you'll come
Afraid to close their eyes, and miss you once again

Cannot turn back time, a wish yet to come true
They're making up these stories about you

You weren't there, distant, far away
It's like this every day, they see you in their heads
Wonder if you'll come
Afraid to close their eyes, and miss you once again

    My InterpretationThe classic scenario, when someone has a one night stand, and the guy leaves. Never to be seen again. Leaving the mother pregnant, with a missing father, to raise the offspring.
