It's Friday night on tram number nine,
All the people I see have clouds in their minds,
But me I am alone,
Having a little party on my own.

The loneliness is not my issue,
I still remember the night that I kissed you,
And there's been plenty more since that,
When it comes to kissing I've been a spoilt little brat.

I don't wanna die alone,
In a home somewhere humming on a song of my own.
It's just me and my budgies
I'll enter heaven with no heavy luggage.

    My InterpretationThe title is a bit morbid, but I like how the beat is uplifting and the lyrics seem to hint that he's fondly remembering someone in particular from his past.

    Perhaps he is missing that person and wants to be with them (it's not the being alone that's the problem, it's the lack of that particular person)?

    Or, maybe he decides that in the end, the memory of that person is enough to keep him from being lonely. Perhaps he is fine dying with just their memory, him and his budgies, without that luggage of an actual relationship?

    Regardless, I can relate to being on the subway, everyone around me pre-occupied and feeling like I'm having my own little party.

    The spoilt little brat line makes me laugh, as Jens often does!
