  • You stand in the doorway
    A block up the street
    Ringing the doorbell
    There's tapping of feet
    High yellow hair
    And a worn brown suit,
    Enter, and break the news

    Now tell me the story
    I give it the time
    No need to worry
    Everything's fine
    I'll take you away
    From the name-calling scene
    Sure, you can bring your magazine

    Cold and windblown on the old bandstand
    You and I walking hand in hand
    A neon-glow shining
    Down on us
    Don't wait up for us
    Don't wait up for us

    Now tell me the story
    I'll give it the time
    When you stop looking
    Then you will find
    I'll take you away
    From this name-calling scene
    Just bring your magazine

    Cold and windblown on the old bandstand
    You and I walking hand in hand
    A neon-glow shining
    Down on us
    Don't wait up for us
    Don't wait up for us Writer/s: MAGNE (MAGS) FURUHOLMEN, MORTEN HARKET, PAUL WAAKTAAR-SAVOY
