This song is a song that Rik wrote the last time he went to Sweden. It’s about trying to keep true to your roots, to where you come from and above all, not to forget to look outside, instead of inside. Figuratively, but also literally. Go outside, enjoy what the world has to offer and don’t be satisfied by the pictures on your phone. Talk to the person next to you instead of apping, facebooking, tweeting your best friend who is miles away. Get out of your screens and look outside the window! The world is beautiful.
The song is written for ukulele and melodica. Recorded with Eline’s brand new ukulele on the porch in Sweden, with the wind, birds and a helicopter in the background.
