"Welcome Home, Luc Robitaille" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
Smile you're on tv again
You must put up a happy face
Your mother told you to on Christmas day
Oh you must do what they say
Now you're thinking of happy thoughts
Like no one did you harm and it was all
1234
Life's so brilliant but why? I'm not so sure
You remember the day
You remember the package
Where he used to spend his years
And now you found him or was it him that found you
It feels like you already knew

Life is sweet when he is back so I just say
Welcome home, Luc Robitaille there's so much
That you missed I'm old but I need you as much as yesterday
Oh Mr. Robitaille stay
I threw the others away

This must be the worst thing I've done
I don't know even why I wrote this song
There's so much more to him than that paper card
Look at him crossing the line oh it's so hard
To define the moves inside my head it's all just
Blood blood sweat sweat tears tears behind all fears
Now it seems so clear everything falls into place
This mathematic maze and now you found me
Or was it me that found you it feels like you already knew

Life is sweet when he is back so I just say
Welcome home, Luc Robitaille there's so much
That you missed I'm old but I need you as much as yesterday
Oh Mr. Robitaille stay
I threw the others away
I threw the others away

Smile you're on tv again you must put up a
Happy face your mother told you to
And now you see you found him or was it
Him that found you
It feels like you already knew

Life is sweet when he is back so I just say
Welcome home, Luc Robitaille there's so much
That you missed I'm old but I need you as much as yesterday
Oh Mr. Robitaille stay
I threw the others away

    General CommentYeah someone in the band (can't remember who) wrote this when he was back at his old home and he found some hockey cards in his room.

    General CommentYou got it right! Gustav wrote that when he came back from tour and found this hockey card, and then he remembered his childhood, and that the childhood wasn´t as good, as he always thought, it was...

    General CommentDamn, I never would have thought of it that way, but I think that you are so right with the hockey thing. It just makes so much sense.
    You're a clever one, you know that?

    My InterpretationLove the song, well seems quite obvious but this part is probably about his appearances on some tv shows (I did some research), having to deal with something different and fake smiles. The last two lines could be about how a bit disappointed the singer is about him having a carreer on TV.

    Smile you're on TV again
    You must put up a happy face
    Your mother told you to on christmas day
    Oh you must do what they say
    Now you're thinking of happy thoughts
    Like no one did you harm and it was all 1234
    Life is so brilliant, but why?
    I'm not so sure.

    I can't quite find where is the reference to a not so happy childhood, but maybe in this next part. Maybe re realised that when he say "it's so clear" and "Or was it me that found you?" that he had to resort to sportsman as a role model or something like that in hs childhood.

    Now it seems so clear
    Everything falls into place
    This mathematic maze and now you found me
    Or was it me that found you?
    It feels like you already knew
    Life is sweet when he is back
    So I just say

    Another role model reference:

    There's so much that you missed
    I'm old but I need you as much as yesterday


    That's it.
