about

When I first left my native Copenhagen, I took the night train to Berlin and arrived at 6am. A cold, dark January day. When I entered the S-bahn, I saw rows and rows of ladies with the same kind of hair and earrings and thought, “we don’t have these kinds of women in Denmark”. It was a small culture shock. This song is about growing up.

lyrics

I’m 21 - getting on the train - shining like the sun in the rain
I’m 21 - with a pack on my bag - stepping into the unknown
I’m 21 - all insecure and pale - my lines are thin and frail
I’m 21 - with the tiger’s courage - got my mother’s worries

And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice
And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me
Dadadadadum...

I’m 21 - running away from home - wanna be on my own
I’m 21 - with the urge to prove - failing hard at being smooth
I’m 21 - flying the magic carpet - not sure that I like it
I’m 21 - sailing the 7 seas - oh my heart is not at ease

And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice
And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me

I’m 21 - in the field of tomorrow - with feelings I borrow
I’m 21 - with the adventurous bones - I’m rolling with the stones
I’m 21 - in the turkish market - on the flying carpet
I’m 21 - and I’m not standing still - I’ve got my own will

And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice
And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me
Dadadadadum...

I’m 21 - with scorpio rising - ever surprising
