"October" as written by and Waaktaar....
Dawn awaits a sleepless, English town
Of colored gray
Here I roam the streets without you
As summer fades away
Down in the city at nights
The cold wind blows

Wherever you may be right now
It must be getting late
You're probably asleep already
I am wide awake
Down in the city at nights

"Don't be lonely"
So you've told me
But don't you worry now
Loneliness can be ignored
And time has shown me how
Down in the city at nights
I'm missing you so much

Down in the city
Down in the city

    General CommentCool song that really sounds dated now, but it's still awesome. About missing someone, who can't relate to the lyrics?

    General CommentDistance causes loneliness. A long distance relationship. Or more likely, a relationship that was ended by her as she moved away. He is still holding on and somewhat bitter. Feels lonely but also out of pride says that he has learnt to live by ignoring his loneliness and she (who perhaps is still in touch with him as a 'friend') shouldn't worry.

    General CommentI remember reading something in The Swing of Things (book). I think Paul was still in London, Morten and Mags had gone back to Norway, and Lauren was back in the U.S. This is just a simple song about being by himself without his friends.
