Parade

(Løvheim)

I didn’t move here for the weather

For the wind that paints roses in my cheeks 

The darkness alone makes me shiver

And I haven’t been outside for weeks 

 

I would take the fierceness of the mountains and the cold

For months I would endure 

 

That I,

Traded my town

Left it behind  

With no trouble sleeping

I was done

Done with the race

Through with parades 

And the citylight-scheming 

And you’d have made me stay 

 

You’re making a stand with your coffee in hand

The weather was never your concern

You’re running from meetings, to dinner with friends

It’s safest to spend what you earn 

 

But if you stop and stare into the void and the lights 

Do you sometimes wonder why

That I,

Traded my town

Left it behind  

With no trouble sleeping

I was done

Done with the race

Through with parades 

And the city light-scheming 

And you’d have made me stay
