Aurora Aksnes is een Noorse singer-songwriter die beter bekend is onder haar artiestennaam Aurora. In 2016 verscheen haar debuutalbum All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend. De singles Runaway en Murder Song (5,4,3,2,1) die van dit album afkomstig zijn kregen net als het album zelf zeer positieve kritieken.

In 2018 en 2019 bracht ze de albums Infections Of A Different Kind (step 1 en step 2) uit. Haar bijdrage aan de soundtrack van Disney’s Frozen II is te horen in het nummer Into The Unknown, waarin Idina Menzel de leadpartij voor haar rekening neemt. Aurora en Menzel traden ook tijdens de Oscaruitreiking van 2020 op. Op 3 maart 2020 bracht Aurora een eigen versie van die song uit.

Haar single Runaway ging in 2021 viral op social media platform TikTok met als resultaat dat er opnieuw succes is met de uit 2015 afkomstige single.



Songtekst

I was listening to the ocean
I saw a face in the sand
But when I picked it up
Then it vanished away from my hands, down

I had a dream I was seven
Climbing my way in a tree
I saw a piece of heaven
Waiting, impatient, for me, down

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday
Nobody knows, nobody knows and
I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can't complain

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

I was painting a picture
The picture was a painting of you and
For a moment I thought you were here
But then again, it wasn't true, down

And all this time I have been lying
Oh, lying in secret to myself
I've been putting sorrow on the farthest place on my shelf
La di da

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday
Nobody knows, nobody knows and
I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can't complain

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

But I kept running
For a soft place to fall
And I kept running
For a soft place to fall
And I kept running
For a soft place to fall
And I kept running
For a soft place to fall
And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home
Home where I belong, now, now
Now take me home
Home where I belong, oh, oh
Now take me home
Home where I belong, now, now
Now take me home
Home where I belong
I can't take it anymore
