"11:07pm" as written by Tim Christensen and Nic Wastell....
Love
Hidden in my mind
Let it out and shine
I'm calling out your name
And running in the rain

I love to turn you on
The dream is always strong
And love
Floating in the air
And I can see you there

All hope was lost
On a night in December
Only a mad man to blame
So many tears
On that night in December
But on cold foreign fields
There's a flame
So we always remember your name

I haven't read the news
Saddened and confused
And dream
In my life I swear
I saw you standing there

All hope was lost
On a night in December
Only a mad man to blame
So many tears
On that night in December
But on cold foreign fields
There's a flame
So we always remember your name

    General Commenti don't think so. In fact, i think it sounds like a father with a child or two, who just lost his wife. This band is Danish, thus i highly doubt they would create a song dedicated to john lennon, and also, he sings as if he loves the person, which would be rather strange... "love to turn you on, the dream is always strong. And love, is floating in the air, and i can see you there"

    While i don't know the true meaning, it seems to me like he is dreaming of her, and when he then wakes up, his mind is somewhere else, thinking about her.

    My theory at least.

    General CommentIt is definitely about the murder of Lennon. Tim Christensen, the lead singer and songwriter of Dizzy, is a HUGE fan of Lennon.

    Furthermore, different sources say, that Lennon was declared dead either 11:07 or 11:15 PM 8th of december, and Lennon was shot dead by a fanatic fan - a mad man.

    on a night in December

    General CommentI completely agree with Jbrix and Niller

    @Kiyoko: The bit you're refering to does not have to be understood in a sexual manner.. The line "Love to turn you on" has been used before by the Beatles (Reported be slang for drug abuse) in the song A day in the life.. It can for example be understood as I love to turn on your music..
    The love floating in the air, should more be understood as, that Tim is a huge Lennon fan, and hence he "loves" him and his work..

    Furthermore, the lyrics printed here are not entirely correct.. In the very last chorus, Tim actually sings "But on Strawberry Fields there's a flame", which of course also is a Beatles reference..
