To live like other people
I never think I’d do
And see my love I give into this dark

Flowers sing the day time
And this is sure at night
This woman said I’m torn between 2 lights

Visions of your lover’s
Holding you some dreadful lights
Wishing they will never be apart

It’s so hard how can I hold on
To someone I can not have
Obsessed with all the things that we could do

Take me on a night drive
And take me on again
The quiet trip we’re living
?
I’d never think I’d do
And to find someone love me really nice

    General Comment:First song off the Observator album.
    Fantastic, beautiful and soulful.
    I think Sune said it was supposed to be about the lonely individual in the city or something?

    Lyric Correction:i submitted correct lyrics, however they still don't show up. so i'll post them here... even as a non-native speaker it is quite obvious that there are a a lot of mistakes in the first version posted on here... besides that... such an awesome song!

    to live like common people i never think i'll do
    and so my love i give in to this dark

    flowers in the daytime and lucifer at night
    this woman said i'm torn between two lives

    visions of young lovers holding hands in joyful rides
    wishing they will never be apart

    and so again i hold on to someone i can't have
    obsessed with all the things that we could do

    take me on a night drive and take me home again
    a quiet trip where we will meet the end

    to live like common people i never think i'll do
    in defiance of a love not realized

    General Comment:wow. extremely haunting. this is actually one of my favorite songs on their album.

    to live like common people I never think i'll do
    and so my love I give in to this dark

    to live like common people I never think i'll do
    in defiance of a love not realized

    The first lines basically says that they don't think that they can ever have that real relationship that most couples usually have and so this person is willing to "live" inside their own visions of what a relationship and love could be with that person that they can never have. After a break up, it is common to think that we refuse to accept that it's really over. To me, I think this person is in denial but despite it, they are willing to spend the rest of their life re-living the past over and over again.

    I remember after my crazy(not my best lol) phase with my exbf. I would take night drives to all the places we had ever went. It was a numbing experience. I would just sit there in front of the store, or bench, etc. and try to replay those memories in my head.
