The song «Når du går» (When You Go) is dedicated my father, who passed away this year. As all of us, I guess, I keep wondering where we go when we go. And this comes closer when you loose someone dear. It starts as a rather intimate song, with mainly the voice and the guitar. But the song grows in intensity and power, as I think it should, when the theme of the song is the enigmatic death. Yet the theme is dark, I wanted the song to express honesty, beauty - and even lightness.

WHEN YOU GO
Where do you go
when you go
out of this time
to the other side
to another shore
when you pass over
is someone there waiting
do you see someone you knew
do they steady you
(the opening lines of the song)
