"A Window" as written by and Johan/larsson Duncanson....
I'm proud of both my hands
I just won't get loud about it
I'm proud of both my hands
I just won't get loud about it
Don't want to shout about it
Can't brag about it, no
I'm proud of both my hands
I just won't get loud about it
I don't consider this a chance
Or a window
Still proud of it
I couldn't live without it
No doubt about it, no

Can't get into the swing
Of things
Entanglements
Embarrassments
It always ends like this

    General CommentI love this song...it's so pretty.
    The last part of the lyrics...maybe about relationships? That's what I saw at least...not too sure about the first part.

    General Commenta perfect summer urban love song....as with everything else with the radio dept., how it sounds is half the story. it inhabits the half-awake driftspace, maybe just idle thoughts one thinks while looking out the window? or maybe just general frustration about not being able to get into the swing of things, which i'm sure everyone feels at one point or another. lovely, lovely.

    The singer Johan Duncansson seems to be very humble and modest, even for a swede! In the dialogue at their shows you can almost count his words on ten fingers.
    I think the lyrics in this song show his thoughts about some of that, but more generally his thoughts about commercialism and the music industry. He is proud of their work and music, but doesn't feel the need to brag and bigmouth about it. I also think he would be very bad at just that, since he seems so shy.
    So to me this song portrays abit of nervousness but also a very refreshing question: why do we need to become famous?

    General CommentIt sounds like bittersweet pride in one's work, as if he'd been having a pisspoor day and somebody complimented him, and even though he still feels upset and like absolute shit, he has that little compliment nagging at him and making him feel a little good where he wishes he could just be thoroughly unhappy. Of course, he's not admitting that he really wishes he was completely happy, which is why the reminder and subsequent modesty makes him feel so grumpy.
