Written by LEIF. Recorded by LEIF in Skippergata & in the magic wintergarden, Oslo. Mixed by Jonas Kroon at Saga Studio, Oslo.

Originally inspired by the band Here We Go Magic and a synth-preset in Logic. The last recordings of this song took place one night in the wintergarden, the same night the American election was coming to an end. Waking up the day after, shocked by the results of the election, feeling that this exact night the world had dramatically changed: one empire falling, others rising in the East, all of us living in the midst of conflicting narratives between the Left and the Right, moving us into unknown territories. I was sick for 3 days straight.

 

Lyrics

Everything has changed now

I know for sure

There´s been a lot of changes 

I know for sure

 

When heaven breaks down

Our world starts spinning round

Tell me this will be alright

Old school christians

(and) Left wing liberals cry

everything will be alright

everything will be alright

 

When heaven breaks down

When meaning is just a word

I just wanna feel alright

Native indians

(and) Right wing cowboys cry

everything will be alright

everything will be alright
