"Boat Behind" as written by Eirik Glambek Boe, Erlend Otre Oeye, Davide Bertolini and Tobias Hett....
So we meet again
after several years
several years of separation
moving on
moving around

Did we spend this time chasing the other's tail?
Singing
Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you
Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you

Winter and spring
Summer and fall
You're the wind surfer crossing the ocean and the boat behind
Skiffle and rag, shuffle and waltz
You're the up tip toe ballerina in the chorus line:
Singing
Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you
Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you

River and sea, picking up salt
Through the air there's a fluffly cloud falling down as rain
Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you
Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you - oohooh
I could never belong to you -ooh ooh
I could never belong to you -ooh ooh

    General CommentThe song is about kind of this never ending cycle a couple's relationship is going through. The song uses metaphors that use vivid visuals to compare to the couple's situation. The dog chasing its own tail in circles, the changing seasons, and the river water becoming rain again are all never failing cycles that only serve to repeat themselves, just like the couple chasing each other's love. In the end the cycle continues and they can never belong to each other. Fantastic song. I love these guys.

    General CommentThis song is excellent. It fuses south american and european musical styles very deftly, and the catchy beat makes it one of those songs i know i will keep coming back to.
