"Shouldn't Have To Be Like That" as written by Rune Kristoffersen and Oyvind Kvalnes....
It's always like this, people I know
Read many books and save every dream,
With all of their hope buried inside, somewhere

And somewhere a man cries for his love
A love that is lost, that withered too soon
With all of his hope buried inside, somewhere

Shouldn't have to be like that

So all you can say is we need more time
To get through the things that need to be said,
With all our trust buried inside, somewhere

And even if it takes a lifetime of trust
To build something strong, what happens to us
With all our faith buried inside, somewhere

    General CommentThe XVIII century main theme in literature was "Love and Money", in the XIX it was "Love and Death", and here's a typical sweet and bitter XX century lyric theme: "Love and loneliness" mixed to a yet to come XXI century theme: "Love and communication". Words and feelings buried inside people who can't find the way to speak them out. The video consistently shows individuals who come out of and return to a cold stone wall, and there disappear without exchanging a single word after walking in a park surrounded by the stone faces of statues mirroring the people who can't communicate their feelings. It shouldn't have to be like that, it's true, but IT IS like that.
