The story of

Stockholm Song

single / 2020-09-19
alternative rock / voices, guitars, bass, drum kit

Our first time doing a rock-ish, alternative indie-grunge-y track, the Stockholm Song is a song inspired by our great but a bit depressing time in - where else? - Stockholm. While really loving the city, we might have been talking and being sick more than actually exploring all that we wished to explore and being down more than expected. And you know what? It should be OK being so as well.

The song's idea was created in the Sörmlands museum in Nyköping, near the Airport, in the exposition part dedicated to Psychiatry. After all that happened in Stockholm, and with a tired mind, there was a board where visitors could comment on the past psychiatry methods and techniques... And Tilly wrote: "We're not okay... but sometimes that's okay." Around this phrase that resonated so much in our minds even later, the rest of the song was created after returning back home.

& lyrics

I like it when it rains
 But once I'd like a dry face
 
 Feet are hurting just try
 And give me something actually mine
 
 We're not okay
 But sometimes that's okay 
 We're not okay
 But sometimes that's okay 
 
 How pretty with a smile
 Just makes me crazy to wear it a while
 
 It's nice to rest in bed
 But I'm sick sick sick of being sick to death
 
 We're not okay
 But sometimes that's okay 
 We're not okay
 But sometimes that's okay 
 
 I was here and saw
 But even more content to talk through it all
 
 I won't forget the grey sky
 You, remember me with every passerby
 
 We're not okay
 But sometimes that's okay 
 We're not okay
 But sometimes that's okay 
 
 But sometimes that's okay 
 Not okay
 But sometimes that's okay
