"The Seventh Summer" as written by and Morten/veland Veland....
The vapour in my mind
Makes it hard to find
The things in life that I lost back in time
And the trail of my heart
Has turned all roads so dark
So hard to find, so hard to overcome

And all the things that I believe were true
Were never roots to anything but lies
To demons in disguise
And all the roads that I've been strolling down
Now I've found they all seem to be marooned
So profoundly doomed

And the vapour in my heart
Makes it hard to love
The things in life that I used to love
And the trail of my soul has made me feel so cold
So lost in life, so down and so alone


Aeons are passing in the blink of an eye
Moments frozen, all the years I've tried to deny
Memories haunt me
As the years passed me by
Feel the dusk
Feel the fall
Feel the winter

On the seventh summer of my life
Saw you turn your back on it all
And left me far behind
There's a river between us
It's become so wide
I wish that you could be right here
To mend my broken life

    General Comment*TO demons in disguise
    Important enough to correct, potentially changes the meaning.

    In my opinion, the song talks about how the consequences of past mistakes (maybe something to do with a relationship as described in the last verse) have accumulated to change the present, and now they've lost so much.

    General CommentI don't understand why the "seventh summer." Does it have anything to do with childhood? As it is refered to "his life."
    Maybe this is about the loss of one of Morten's parent, though I absolutely don't know if something like that happened in his life. The references to "demons" fit in this interpretation, as children are often scared by demons and evil things. And the line "I wish you could be right here to mend my broken life" may refer to the fact that he's looking for some comfort he can't find anywhere else than in his lost one.

    Anyway, I also agree with the previous interpretation. The whole song is about the loss of someone and how you can be lost in life due to this loss.
