A song about my childhood in a town at the western coast of Sweden. It was such a small and protected world to grow up in. But it's also a song about the feeling that all is so complicated when you're small, but since you don't have much of a reference you don't know how great your life is and how small the worries truly are. Everything gets more complicated later on when you get thrown into the life of grown-ups, build a family and raise children. But still it's the happiest time of your life.


Easier Before

In a heartbeat it is gone
life has taken what is hers and I suddenly think about the time
that passed by while I dreamt
Like when I was a child and went around and sold papers
down to the harbor and then outside of town
While the wind and cold hurt my face
all I could think of was what I saved to
All was easier before

In a heartbeat it is lost
All the passes that never found their way
On the field where I have worn
At least a dozen shoes or more
It won’t be like before when I think about the first time my
heart was torn into pieces I thought that life would end
I was only eight and felt there was no chance
I could ever love someone else like that
It was so fragile before

In a heartbeat it has turned
The winds of life change, and find their way back to the east
Like my childhoods winds were like
By the beach where I grew up where I took my first own little
swimming strokes that would take me to what I now become
It’s so hard to imagine
that all those things makes me to the one who I am today
yeah it was easier before
