Simply overwhelming!
The fourth episode of "Hver gang vi møtes" featured another wonderful Lene's performance, singing Kurt Nilsen's "Rise to the occasion". You can listen to the song at this link and be surprised by Lene's determination and by her dare to give a more upbeat tempo compared to the original version. Lene's unique voice makes each song a bit special, but this time the melody is even very energetic!
You can find below the song's lyrics, and we leave you wondering about the importance this song could have had for Lene, if she chose to sing it. For sure, once again, her bright eyes towards the end tell us how this artist is able to feel the music deep down her heart!

Rise to the occasion

You've been down the dark detours
You have seen most of it all
Crashed into the million faces
But never listened to them talk
You've got so much on your mind right now
It doesn't even help to try to solve them all

You used to smile with hope
and a pat on the back
Would last throughout the day
As the rain kept falling down on you

You wouldn't let them wash the feeling away
Hope itself dried out in you as you heard your man walking away
Without a word

You thought
Who's gonna make my decisions, I can't make them on my own
Who's gonna rise to the occasion when there is no one around
Who the hell is gonna believe me, when I dont believe in myself
Who's gonna be there forever, well it aint gonna be him

In case you didn't know I really care for you
I just wish you all the best
If love should come and knock on your door
I hope it treats you with respect
I can not count the times I've seen you
Oh just slipping away with a broken heart

You thought
Who's gonna make my decisions, I can't make them on my own
Who's gonna rise to the occasion when there is no one around
Who the hell is gonna believe me, I dont believe in myself
Who's gonna be there forever, well it aint gonna be him
