Lyrics: Mark Steiner,
Music: Mark Steiner, Knut Frøysnes, Eirik Bjarghov, Kenneth Simonsen

It's not easy to understand
Why the world, it keeps spinning 'round
Life's been tough on you
Yeah I know it's true
Just don't let it bring you down
Well you worry about consequence
But I know it's just the season
But don't worry, little darlin' now
No need to find a reason

Well it's hard to recognize
The things which just keep you runnin'
The shadows grow ever longer still
'Cause the sun it just keeps on setting
Well I'm worried that you're burning out
Afraid of what you're seein'
But don't worry, my little angel now
The reason is no good


It seems simple to comprehend
That the world just keeps on turnin'
Life's been tough on you
We both know it's true
We just never seem to learn
Well you worry about consequence
But I know it's just the season
Don't worry, little darlin' now
No need to find a reason

Reason (no reason)
Just reason (no reason)
Reason (no reason)
Just treason

This ex-New Yorker is a wandering scoundrel who one might find hanging out in the shadowy corners of a pub at closing time. A international musical vagrant who might walk the streets with Stuart Staples, Nick Cave, and Rowland S. Howard... ... more
