Sofie Mathiasen – Before We Say Goodbye – Press Kit

The Song

„Since I was young I always envisioned a romance between the sun and the moon.

It was actually for a school project that I wrote ‚Before We Say Goodbye‘ – we had to write a Nocturne in music class, and I took the opportunity to try to write a song inspired by the love story I had imagined for such a long time.

I wrote BWSG from the moon’s perspective and tried to capture the feeling of longing for something that will forever remain out of reach.“

The Words

Light becomes dark 
I watch from afar 
As everyone below me 
Gets lost in their own dreams
And when they wake up
That’s when the sky erupts
And I take in the beauty 
Of you rising slowly 

Each night ends the same
I’m tired of feeling this way
You arrive as I go away
Keep wishing for something to change 
Hope just causes me pain
Knowing things will stay the same

That’s why I 
Keep on crying 
Stars falling from my eyes
My eyes
Tears that I’m surrounded by
Keep on wishing 
You were by my side tonight 
Instead of being trapped with my mind 
I hope you know 
I’ve been replaying the memory of you 
Until sunrise
Cuz I just love the moments 
Before we say goodbye
Goodbye

Hold my breath 
Close my eyes and count to ten
Maybe when I open them
I’ll be blinded by your presence 
And I know we are
More than a world apart
But without you it’s so dark
Illuminated by a city of stars 

Each night ends the same
I’m tired of feeling this way
You arrive as I go away 
Keep wishing for something to change
Hope just causes me pain
Knowing things will stay the same

That’s why I
Keep on crying 
Stars falling from my eyes
My eyes
Tears that I’m surrounded by
Keep on wishing 
You were by my side tonight 
Instead of being trapped with my mind 
I hope you know 
I’ve been replaying the memory of you 
Until sunrise
Cuz I just love the moments 
Before we say goodbye
Goodbye

Each night ends the same 
I’m tired of feeling this way 
You arrive as I go away
Each night you can’t stay 
I feel part of me break
I can’t go on this way 

That’s why I
Keep on crying 
Stars falling from my eyes
My eyes
Tears that I’m surrounded by
Keep on wishing 
You were by my side tonight 
Instead of being trapped with my mind 
I hope you know 
I’ve been replaying the memory of you 
Until sunrise
Cuz I just love the moments 
Before we say goodbye
Goodbye

Light becomes dark 
I watch from afar 
As everyone below me 
Gets lost in their own dreams
