  1. Be Like Him

From the recording Passage

Lyrics

Be Like Him

Over the midnight lights of Moscow
So high the city shines like stars
Ten times the size of my sweet Oslo
Hosting nearly six hundred thousand hearts
Now I am flying East
Farther than I've ever been
And next to me, off duty, is a pilot half asleep
He's seen so many places I have never seen

I wanna be like him
I wanna see the world,
I wanna take life as it comes
I wanna be like him
Visit people I don't know,
But can get to know
And then invite them back to where I'm from.

I saw beauty, new and different
But I met warmth that made me feel like home
Though miles and miles away from Oslo
Hearts filled with life find ways to speak
I should have known.
Now I am flying North
Been farther than I ever went
The pilot's not beside me but he smiled and waved goodbye
He knew after I'd seen all this I'd learned to fly

I wanna be like him
I wanna see the world,
I wanna take life as it comes
I wanna be like him
Visit people I don't know,
but can get to know and then invite them home.

Up there I was waiting for the morning sun to tuck me in
Praying for a safe return while cutting through the wind
My favourite pilot says he loves the take-off part
Now that's the part I dread the most
But I should try his way of thinking,
As it might be just the start
Of something that would deeply change
My Northern heart.

I wanna be like him
I wanna see the world,
I wanna take life as it comes
I wanna be like him
Visit people I don't know,
but can get to know and then invite them home

Yeah, I wanna be like him ...
