"Summer Moved On" as written by Pal Waaktaar, Magne Furuholmen and Morten Harket....
Summer moved on and the way it goes, you can't tag along
Honey moved out and the way it went leaves no doubt
Moments will pass in the morning light I found out

Seasons can't last and there's just one thing left to ask
Stay, don't just walk away and leave me another day
A day just like today with nobody else around

Friendships move on until the day you can't get along
Handshakes unfold and the way it goes no one knows
Moments will pass in the morning light I found out

Seasons can't last so there's just one thing left to ask
Stay, don't just walk away and leave me another day
A day just like today stay, don't just walk away with nobody else around

Seasons can't last and there's just one thing left to ask
Stay, don't just walk away and leave me another day
A day just like today stay, don't just walk away with nobody else around
Summer moved on

    General CommentWow!That was really long and high!

    I've read over wiki's page that

    Morten Harket holds the European record for the longest note held in a Top 40 pop song. During the song "Summer Moved On" Harket sustains a note for 20.2 seconds (=32 measures).

    so, I waited for it and count until when he would stop.


    STAY.............................

    General CommentSummer is an indication of good times that are over so soon.

    When Paul wrote it he said that he had found the perfect composition. I bet he was right, but not to ignore Hunting High and Low.

    A-Ha are the most underrated band in the world, and this song is the best of the decade. Period.

    General CommentI consider 'MInor earth major sky ' their most beautiful album. this song is not an axception. 'Season can't last..(so friendship, love...life...' and the melanchony that is get is the theme of full album

    General CommentI think it's about being caught up in the bad htings in life. The care-free days of the summer (or being young) are over and now it's time to get back to buisness and reality.

    My InterpretationI think it's about people coming and leaving our life. After all good times are through, they leave, although we want them to stay with us...

    General CommentMaybe it's about moving on, while others stay where they are. Stay or go, Summer keeps movin' on, with nobody else around.
