Hear the waves

So it is spring in Norway and with that I thought it would be a good time to make a music post about one of my summer songs. 😊 Like all normal Norwegians I spend my life obsessing about the beach… (I actually do love winter a lot though 😉).

Currently the song is called The Beach on SoundCloud, but the original title was Beach Bum, and it will go back to that name as soon as a project is finished.

Beach Bum is one of my newer songs. I have started doing everything myself these last few years when I’m making songs, including the mixing and mastering. I guess it is the best way to get what you have in your head into the actual song… or at least try….

I am just in love with beach songs in general. I really like the feeling of being at the beach, sand under my feet and the sound of waves. I have tried to recreate that feeling in this song to the best of my ability, and I hope it comes across that way. I hope it makes you want to go to the beach, maybe even live there. 😉

Beach Bum has also been made into a story that you can read here Beach Bum I do like the cheerfulness of beach songs, but when I have them in stories they sometimes become a contrast to a darker theme.

Beach Bum

Car breaking down

No money left

The apartment’s been closed

And I just don’t see how I’m gonna find anywhere else

Oh, I just don’t know how it’s gonna work out this time

Don’t really know how anything’s ever gonna work out the way that I thought that it would

Oh, I just wanna go now

Just show me where the beach is

I’ll be fiiiiine

Oh, I just wanna go now

Just show me where the beach is

I’ll be fiiiiine


Just lying down

In the sand

And hear the waves

Come take away

My troubles now

Oh, I will stay

Just let me stay


Uuuuuuuuuu….. (😊)


I lost that job

My old friends left

They just don’t wanna be with somebody who doesn’t get

That money’s the most important thing that there is

And you cannot live on a beach and be fine with it

Cause that is what this is

But they need to go now

Just show me where the beach is

I’ll be fiiiiine

Oh, they need to go now

Just show me where the beach is

I’ll be fiiiiine


This is my home

Can I stay

And fall asleep

Under the stars

On my beach

Oh, I will stay

Just let me stay


Uuuuuuuuuu….. (😊)
