  • I was listening to the ocean
    I saw a face in the sand
    But when I picked it up
    Then it vanished away from my hands, dah
    I had a dream I was seven
    Climbing my way in a tree
    I saw a piece of heaven
    Waiting in patience for me, dah

    And I was running far away
    Would I run off the world someday?
    Nobody knows, nobody knows
    And I was dancing in the rain
    I felt alive and I can't complain
    But no, take me home
    Take me home where I belong
    I can't take it anymore

    I was painting a picture
    The picture was a painting of you
    And for a moment I thought you were here
    But then again, it wasn't true, dah
    And all this time I have been lying
    Oh, lying in secret to myself
    I've been putting sorrow on the farthest place on my shelf, la-di-da

    And I was running far away
    Would I run off the world someday?
    Nobody knows, nobody knows
    And I was dancing in the rain
    I felt alive and I can't complain
    But no, take me home
    Take me home where I belong
    I got no other place to go
    No, take me home
    Take me home where I belong
    I got no other place to go
    No, take me home
    Take me home where I belong
    I can't take it anymore

    But I kept running for a soft place to fall
    And I kept running for a soft place to fall
    And I kept running for a soft place to fall
    And I kept running for a soft place to fall

    And I was running far away
    Would I run off the world someday?
    But no, take me home
    Take me home where I belong
    I got no other place to go
    No, take me home
    Take me home where I belong
    I got no other place to go

    No, take me home, home where I belong, no, no
    No, take me home, home where I belong, no, no
    No, take me home, home where I belong, no, no
    No, take me home, home where I belong

    I can't take it anymore Writer/s: Aurora Aksnes, Magnus Aaserud Skylstad
