Mother Nature Goes to Heaven
by a-ha

Album: Foot of the Mountain (2009)
  • Wrong
    You never got it wrong
    You always got it right
    But now some time has passed;
    You're ever so slightly off
    Thing you could do asleep
    In a not too distant past,
    Are trying your patience
    Harder now

    And though
    Everything moves along
    You hope the rumor's wrong
    That Mother Nature
    Goes to heaven

    Right
    You never got it wrong
    It always got away
    When you had it nailed
    It was ever so slightly off
    Sending you somewhere else
    Than where you had to be
    Making it that much
    Harder now

    And though
    You're struggling to get on track
    It pales somewhat to the fact
    That Mother Nature goes to heaven

    And there will be no sadder day
    When all the birds
    Have flown away Writer/s: MAGNE (MAGS) FURUHOLMEN, MORTEN HARKET, PAUL WAAKTAAR-SAVOY
