Background information about the song:

Violeta is reunited with her mother. Father and brother are left at a safe distance. Beatrice promises a better life after death, but that's only if you want it. It will be fabulously great only if Violeta herself decides to jump off the skyscraper from the 1000th floor and down to the ground. Violeta has always wanted to be like her mother when she grows up. She leans out and joins her mother, hand in hand in the air, towards eternity and asks: Do you think that I have grown up now, mom ...?

Den romantiske tragedien

The romantic tragedy

Dørene glir opp, stig påThe doors slide up, get in
Du kan få lov å trykke på knappenYou may press the button
Heile veien opp i det blåThe whole way up into the blue
Velkommen til den tusende etasjenWelcome to the thousandth floor
Me har all verdens tid på oss nåWe have all the time in the world for us now
Du har så mange spørsmål og svar skal du fåYou have so many questions and you shall get answers
Når du passerer kver etasje mot bakken i ekstaseWhile you pass every floor to the ground in ecstasy
 
Hold mi hånd fast, stå med di tåHold my hand firmly, stand with your toes 
sånn som di mor, heilt ut på kantenlike your mother, right at the edge
Og ikkje vær du redd, du har jo lovAnd don't be afraid, since you have permission
Det svir alltid litt med klump i halsenIt always stings a bit with a lump in the throat
Åh, om din far kunne sett oss to nåOh, if your father could see us two now
Du er så tapperYou are so brave
Og du har heller aldri vært så vakker som nåAnd you have never been as beautiful as now
Tørk dine tårer og såDry your tears and then
Lener du deg framYou lean forward
Enda littegrannJust a little bit more
 
Du lener deg framYou lean forward
Du lener deg framYou lean forward
Eg vett at du kanI know that you can
Du vett at du kanYou know that you can
 
1000, 900, 800.....1000, 900, 800 ...
 
Kjenner du det går bedre nå?Do you feel how it's getting better now?
Det er som om ingenting er bak degIt's like nothing is behind you
Alt går i sakte kino ogEverything is in slow motion and
alt du har er rett framfor degall you have is right in front of you
Det er bare snakk om sekunder igjen nåIt's just a matter of seconds now
Hold fast mi hånd ut livet og sjåHold my hand out of this life and see
at du og meg fortsatt holder hender i neste liv ogthat you and me still hold hands in the next life and
Du lener deg framYou lean forward
Enda littegrannJust a little bit more
 
500, 400, 300, 200, 100500, 400, 300, 200, 100
 
Eg har alltid hatt lyst til å bli som deg når eg blir stor morI've always wanted to be like you when I grow up mom
Syns du nå at eg er blitt stor mor?Do you think now that I've grown up mom?
