"beautiful day without you" as written by Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland....
Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fateless)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (ah)

Like rays of gold (I honestly can)
Now can I (forget the pain)

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fateless)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (without you)

Feeling spoiled
In this world
Fighting beliefs
Now can I

I
Know
My
Tragedy

Notion took about
Still I wonder how
Morning after rain
Clear away the pain

Then after all
When all are gone
It's plain to see
Just who we are
In the light of hate
The way we talk
Enacting shame
Causing harm
Defend yourself
And keep your guard
We realize
We belong apart
'Cause we entice
We've got ways of knowing

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fateless)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (ah)

Like rays of gold (I honestly can)
Now can I (forget the pain)

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fatheless)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (without you)

Feeling spoiled in this world
Fighting beliefs
Now can I

When I'm alone
And all are gone
The painted leaves
Onto the sun
In the light of god
I see myself
Improving things
Oh every day
The open sky
The breathing stars
When .... Come
In a world apart
'Cause in these times
There's no way of knowing

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fateless)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (ah)

Like rays of gold (I honestly can)
Now can I (forget the pain)

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fateless)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
A beautiful day without you (without you)

And still I'm spoiled
Feeling refined
This beautiful day
Makes me sigh...

    General Commentteh lyrics are not correct imho... English is far from my native language, but even I hear 'living on my guard' except 'living under God'.
    As for me, this song is about breaking up with a girlfriend. Maybe, Royksopp didn't break up with his (no, I don't want him to, if he's got one), but as for me the song reflects the feelings of a man after some time after breaking up... when the understanding comes, and he ddoesn't suffer any more... he hasn't to care and fear about what his gf is doing and if she is safe... he understands that it is time to live on his own and care about himself... he understands that the relationship was a mistake, it was not a true love but something mixed up with lies, harm and pain that was tried to hide under shame... at least, the man from the song is happy in the end... everything is gone, no need to suffer any more

    Lyric CorrectionLiving under God (Glory)
    Wind is on my neck (Fearless)
    Sun is on my face (Courage)
    ...a beautiful day without you

    Like rays of gold
    in all this decay
    Now can I forget the pain?

    Living under God (Holy)
    Wind is on my neck (Fearless)
    Sun is on my face (Courage)
    ...a beautiful day without you

    Feel unspoiled
    in this world
    confiding beliefs
    How can I?

    I know my tragedy
    notion took a bow
    still I wonder how
    morning after rain
    clear away the pain

    Then, after all, when all are gone
    it's plain to see, just who we are
    in light of hate, the way we talk
    and act in shame causing harm.
    Defend yourself, and keep your guard!"
    We realize we belong apart
    'Cause beyond ties, we've got
    ways of knowing

    Living under God (Glory)
    Wind is on my neck (Fearless)
    Sun is on my face (Courage)
    ...a beautiful day without you

    Like rays of gold
    in all this decay
    Now can I forget the pain?

    Living under God (Holy)
    Wind is on my neck (Fearless)
    Sun is on my face (Courage)
    ...a beautiful day without you

    Feel unspoiled
    in this world
    Confiding beliefs
    Now can I?

    When, I'm alone, and all are gone
    the pain it leaves, onto the sun
    in light of good I see myself
    approving things everyday.
    The open sky, the breathing stars
    will leave me calm in a world apart 'cause
    in these times there's no
    way of knowing...

    Living under God (Glory)
    Wind is on my neck (Fearless)
    Sun is on my face (Courage)
    ...a beautiful day without you

    Like rays of gold
    in all this decay
    Now can I forget the pain?

    Living under God (Holy)
    Wind is on my neck (Fearless)
    Sun is on my face (Courage)
    ...a beautiful day without you

    Still unspoiled
    Feeling refined
    This beautiful day,
    it's a sign

    I actually own the CD, and these are the lyrics that come with it. There might be a few spelling/grammar errors, as some of the words in the book were incorrect (like "loose" instead of "lose") but these are technically the official lyrics.

    General CommentIt kind of makes me think of a person who lost their friend/lover etc. to death, but I'm not sure. Whenever it's a nice day outside I just want to share it with the person I love the most, and when I can't, this song is how I feel

    Lyric CorrectionLyrics posted by saumensch are correct. At first I had problems understanding this song's lyrics. It didn't quite made sense at all. At least here this lyrics are closer to the truth, but on other sites... omg.

    Lyric CorrectionCould saumensch's comment of the correct lyrics be updated to this song? There is no other website currently listing the correct lyrics, and the one above is correct.

    Cheers.
