Walking bones
Choose your own direction
Go have fun some place else

Bring your soul
And your Beach Boys records
I can't stand to have you here

So worn out
Cold and dehydrated
The fortune's spent
And dad's in space

Every home should have a mom in love
And a daddy in space
Chinese porcelain cats to guard her love
In the window space

Show her some respect she's all worn down

For years to come
I will not forget you
As my sun, as my pain

Time will heal
What now feels so wounded
Tears are spilled
And the holes will fill

Every home should have a mom in love
And a daddy in space
Chinese porcelain cats to guard her love
In the window space

Show her some respect she's all worn down
Show her some respect she's all worn down
Show her some respect she's all worn down

Every home should have a mom in love
And a daddy in space
Chinese porcelain cats to guard her love
In the window space

    General CommentThis song is about his parents. everyone should have a mom in love refers to the fact that his mother was in love with a guy from norway, and a daddy in space refers to the fact that his father was almost always drunk. His parents didn't / don't have a good relationship with each other, and yes it can give everyone a troubled childhood, but the song is focused more on "this is what it was like at home - but look what i've become - i turned out good - everyone should have it like i did"

    General CommentWell Kasper Eistrup stated a koncert last year, that this song was not about a troubled childhood.
