"The Build-Up" as written by Eirik Glambek Boe, Erlend Otre Oeye and Leslie Feist....
The build-up
Lasted for days
Lasted for weeks
Lasted too long

Our hero withdrew
When there was two
He could not choose one
So there was none

Worn into the vaguely announced [Repeat: x1]

[Chorus: x2]
The spinning top made a sound
Like a train across the valley
Fading, oh so quiet
But constant till it passed
Over the ridge into the distances
Written on your ticket
To remind you where to stop
And when to get off
