"This Old Routine" as written by Klara Maria S�derberg and Johanna Kajsa S�derberg....
So you come on home, walk through the door.
She's in the kitchen searching through the drawers.
So you stop and watch her and ask what she's looking for.
She says she's not sure.

And it gets late and you turned off the lights.
Her body's so close to you in the night.
But you dare not touch her and you don't wanna fight, so you just say,
"Goodnight."

This old routine will drive you mad
It's just a mumble never spoken out loud
And sometimes you don't even know why you loved her.
Well you look at her now, and you see why.

And your youngest is out fighting a war.
But he won't say what he's fighting for.
If he's gone because of war for you, in which you rather be true.

This old routine will drive you mad
It's just a mumble never spoken out loud
Sometimes you can't even recall the sound of his laughter.
Oh, well did you ever really know the sound?

This old routine will drive you mad
It's just a mumble never spoken out loud
Sometimes you don't even know how you're still standing.
Well she looks at you now, and you see how.
Well you look at her now, and you know how.

    Lyric CorrectionSo you come on home, walk through the door
    she's in the kitchen searching through the drawers
    so you stop and watch her and ask what she's looking for
    she says she's not sure

    Then it gets late and you've turned off the lights
    her body's so close to you in the night
    but you dare not touch her and you don't want to fight
    so you just say goodnight

    This old routine will drive you mad
    it's just a mumble never spoken out loud
    and sometimes you don't even know why you loved her
    well, you look at her now and you see why

    And your youngest is out fighting a war
    but he won't say what he's fighting for
    if he's gone because of or for you
    or which you'd rather be true

    This old routine will drive you mad
    it's just a mumble never spoken out loud
    and sometimes you can't even recall the sound of his laughter
    oh, well did you ever really know the sound?

    This old routine will drive you mad
    it's just a mumble never spoken out loud
    and sometimes you don't even know how you're still standing
    well, she looks at you now and you see how
    well, you look at them now and know how

    Song MeaningThe song is about someone who is living with a partner who suffers from Alzheimers I think. It really reminds be of the book 'before I go to sleep', with the son out fighting the war part and the reference to searching through the drawers. Beautiful song!
