"Slanted Floor" as written by Ole Sverre Olsen and Morten Harket. Used in place of "Shooting Star" on some editions of "Letter from Egypt"....
Be my eyes
Paint colours bright
As day turns to night
Baby, be my eyes

Tell me, Dear
Was this freedom our share
Was the cost for all to bare
Tell me, Dear

Out here
We dance along the rim
Though non of us can swim
Like we know the deep we`re in
And I,
I feel like I felt before
We live on a slanted floor

And so
Tell me all the things we know
Is heaven still above

    General CommentIt says that the lyric was edited by me on the lower description above, I did send in a correction but the one shown is not what I sent in. I have since bought this album and notice that these are the lyrics that are in the lyric book. They do not, however match what he is singing in the actual track. Those of us Morten fans are well aware that he tends to forget lyrics, sometimes I've noticed him change them from time to time ( there is a line in Take on Me that I have heard him sing 3 different ways...), whether on the fly or planned, I don't know but this is the first time they changed between the recording and the printing of the booklet, LOL Love him anyway, he is so amazing. I really do Love this song, I don't even understand why, I mean, it's a great song but it just hit me right in the gut when I heard it. My Favorite one of all his songs.
