"Day Off" as written by and Kurt Nilsen....
See the morning sun from my window
Not a cloud for a mile or two
Wearing out my slippers when I walk
But that what they're supposed to do
What is the purpose and what am I doing here
When I ought to be at work
I'm going round and round in circles all day
Can't stop thinking about where it hurts

Look ahead
Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?
Well that's not right
Look ahead
Does it mean that I'm afraid to give it a try?
Just a try

I'm taking a sickleave; I got to make the call
Just let them know that this is too hard
I can't figure out what in gonna say
'Cause telling them lies will end up bad anyway
A little scared as I dial up the phone
Saying that the fever has got to my bones
I'm sweating like a pig
When you return my call
Get well soon and take the day off

Look ahead
Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?
That's not right
Look ahead
Does it mean that I'm afraid to give it a try?
Just a try

I'm keeping a straight face trying to seem real
Enjoying my self well here is the deal
I'm never ever going back there again
No, no, mm, mm, no way at all
I'm never ever going back there again
I got to be honest with myself
Yeah I got to be honest with myself

Look ahead
Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?
That's not right
Look ahead does it mean that I'm afraid to give it a try?
Just a try

    General CommentNoone has commented any Kurt Nilsen songs? :O What a shame.

    Anyway, this song is really good. I think it´s from the period where he had to decide if he were going to go for music or his "ordinary" job, being an electrician... He don´t really like his job so he´s staying at home way too much with bad excuses, while trying to decide wether he´s going to quit or not.

    Well, that´s just my opinion, anyway =)
