"Birthright" as written by and Morten/furuholmen Harket....
You don't wanna hang around
Said you were leaving town for the summer
At least till sundown

Cause time ain't gonna grind you down,
Ain't gonna waste your life
Chasing rainbows like some clown

But who's gonna come with you tonight
Who's gonna to tell you it's alright?
Everything changes over time
Just like wine

Time ain't gonna hold you up,
Ain't going to make it stop long enough to ease your mind,
Ain't gonna make it last forever

And you
What ya gonna do?
Walk it solitary?
So unnecessary
But it's alright
It's your birthright

Hey, hey everything's different down the line
Everything changes over time

Time ain't gonna make it worse
It's gonna make you start feeling better
Just like wine
We're gonna make it last forever

Hey you
What ya gonna do?
Just be ordinary?
So unnecessary

But it's all right
Yes it's alright
It's your birthright

    My InterpretationOne of my absolute favorites from "Analogue" and from a-ha in general. To me, the song tells of someone who is deciding to part and blaze their own trail on their own (But who's gonna come with you tonight/Who's gonna tell you it's alright/Everything changes over time/Just like wine), but that the singer won't stop the person from leaving because "it's [their] birthright" to make their own choices. I'm probably missing more from this song, but I'm open to hearing other interpretations.
