"Know-How" as written by Eirik Glambek Boe, Erlend Otre Oeye and Leslie Feist....
Riding on this know-how
Never been here before
Peculiarly entrusted
Possibly that's all
Is history recorded
Does someone have a tape?

Surely, I'm no pioneer
Constellations stay the same
Just a little bit of danger
When intriguingly
Our little secret
Trust say trust me
Cause no one will ever know
That this was happening
So tell me why you listen
When nobody's talking

Oh oh oh, what is there to know?
Oh, this is what it is
Oh oh oh, you and me alone
Sheer simplicity

Oh oh oh, what is there to know?
Oh, this is what it is
Oh oh oh, you and me alone
Sheer simplicity

Oh oh oh, what is there to know?
Oh, this is what it is
Oh oh oh, you and me alone
Sheer simplicity

    General CommentNow that you mentioned it, I thought it could be. Some discreet relationship of sort. Great tune!

    General CommentNah, it doesn't seem to me that it's about adultery. I think it's about a man and a woman making love, just for one night - and why not?
    So the song would be about showing how such a simple thing as two persons making love shouldn't be that big a deal - not, of course, when it involves cheating, but I don't see where in this song that theme takes place.

    Just a man and a woman, alone. Sheer simplicity =)

    General Commenti feel like the third line has to be "peculiarly interested", as opposed to entrusted...?

    General CommentIt does make more sense as "peculiarly interested", but my ears can hear it as either word, so I'm not sure. I definitely think it's about some sort of secret relationship, and the song is an entreaty to their partner to not overthink things.
