"Sordid Affair" as written by Svein Berge, Torbjorn Brundtland and Konstantin Sibold....
There was a time…
Dark and divine…
Exciting and new.
Shameful and true…

Free to explore,
we had it all:
Towering trust,
insatiable lust…

Clouding the truth,
both of us knew:
this sordid affair
is ending in tears…

Yes, we would go on,
knowing the wrong.
Until the day,
it was taken away…

Oh, all our love
fell down
to earth…
Here, broken and cold…
With grave remorse…

But for a while,
it all made sense…
It might have been just a dark pretense,
but you had me…
And I loved it…
To be with you,
to be the one,
to live a lie,
it really got me all excited…
I felt wanted…

Then in the night,
the sorrow inside
was taken away;
deliverance came…

Fell from the sky,
heaven replied…
Salvation in streams,
silent and clean…

All that we were,
all that we knew,
faded away,
with tears in the rain…

Yes, all that we were,
all that we knew
is fading away,
like tears in the rain…

All that we were,
all that we knew…
…fading away…

All that we were,
all that we knew…
…fading away…
