Written by Morten Harket and Ole Sverre Olsen....
You are still my brother
Till the end of time
You and I we lost our way
Differences of mind
Till the end of time

Listen to me Brother
I can’t take your place
No one else can wear your face
That’s the work of grace
Till the end of time

And here is my problem:

Hey, I think you got me wrong
I am sorry for the riches that I found
I didn’t mean no harm

So tell me where you’re bound
You’re welcome in my town
But if you try to force my compass ‘round
I’m gonna stand you down

You are still my brother
Till the end of time
No one else can take your place
Difference is divine
Till the end of time

And here is my problem:

Hey, I think you got me wrong
I am sorry for the riches I took home
I know I crossed a line

But show me what you’ve found
You’re welcome in my town
But if you try to force my compass ‘round
I’m gonna stand you down

Till the end of time

    My InterpretationThe song is said to be based on the memoir of a former extremist who left his sect, but I feel that it can generally describe a person's sorrow at letting someone in their life drift away from a divisive moment (You and I, we lost our way/Differences of mind), and their desire to keep that person in their life, but expressing a warning that they will not overtake the singer and influence their mind (You're welcome in my town/But if you try to force my compass 'round/I'm gonna stand you down).
