"Koop Island Blues" as written by Oscar Simonsson, Magnus Gustaf Zingmark and Ane Brun....
Hello, my love
It's getting cold on this island
I'm sad alone
I'm so sad on my own

The truth is
We were much too young
Now I'm looking for you
Or anyone like you

We said goodbye
With the smile on our faces
Now you're alone
You're so sad on your own

The truth is
We ran out of time
Now you're looking for me
Or anyone like me

Hello, my love
It's getting cold on this island
I'm sad alone
I'm so sad on my own

The truth is
We were much too young
Now I'm looking for you
Or anyone like you

    General CommentLucky you! I first heard this in So You Think You Can Dance Season 5 Ep10 Randi & Evan's dance. Terrific dance and unbelievable music!

    General CommentDoesn't take a genius to figure out the content and meaning of this song. Obviously when two people are seperated they miss each other... or at least the feeling they had when near each othet

    General Commenti also heard this song first time in SO U THINK YOU CAN DANCE, since than am in love with this song,
    it reflects the true feelings of people who are separated and now remind of the good time they had together. and seek the same time and memories

    General CommentA relationship that seemed pretty meaningless for both of them... But now they are apart, they understand how much they miss and need each other... Years have passed but neither of them managed to find someone else to love so much... Back then they wanted more, but now all they desire is their first, teenage crush/love...:'-)

    General CommentI heard this song on The Saboteur, and well... Fell in love with it. But well, yeah, the meaning is pretty easy to find, just the sadness that comes when you miss another person and the things you do... The video for this song is pretty depressing.

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty clear, but together with the official video this song tells a concrete story... I think the heroine is a prostitute reminiscing about her past with a certain guy. She then has a dream. The men that constantly appear in the video and the dream are all the fake men she has to work with, and the normal-looking guy that comes to her in the forest is the one she misses or wants to be with... Basically that's my interpretation.
