The Knife Forest Families Lyrics

Too far away from the city

Some kids left on their own

They said we had a communist in the family

I had to wear a mask

Too far away from the city

We had to make this room

Fathers were football players, Volvo workers, policemen

What the mothers did I didn’t know

Music tonight

I just want your music tonight

I saw her by the organ

She was laughing while pressing the keys

She said my favourite book was dirty and

“You should not show you can read”

Too far away from the city

We never heard its noise

We learned how to stay fit and things like

Green tones hide the blush

Music tonight

I just want your music tonight

Music tonight

I just want your music tonight

Too far away from the city

We came to breathe clean air

Nature lovers’ safe oasis

And the mothers walked towards the forest

Music tonight

I just want your music tonight

Music tonight

I just want your music tonight
