Excerpts from articles in the Norwegian news papers VG and Dagbladet:

Alexander tells that it is important for him to be open and honest to his audience. He confirms that the problems started with the sudden success.
– It started out as a bit of innocent sleep aid during Eurovision in Moscow, but it ended up taking complete control of my life in recent years, he says.
And now that he has shared the news with his followers on social media he feels he finally can breathe freely for the first time in a long time.

– I was determined to wait to share until I felt progress, but must admit that the important first steps took even more energy and time than I had first prepared for, he tells Dagbladet
– It has been difficult to travel around and smile and pretend like everything was okay. After I made this post, I feel 100 kilos lighter, says Rybak to VG.

Give Me Rain

The song is written, recorded, mixed and produced by Alexander. He does the vocals, plays the violin and piano. Knut Bjørnar Asphol plays the guitars and has also mastered the song.

Give me rain and I will dance
Let me fall and I will rise
There’s no way I will give up
I’m gonna keep on dancin’
Just keep on dancin’, yeah

(Give me, give me rain
and I will dance, dance, dance, dance
Give me, give me rain
and I will dance, dance, dance, dance
)

Despite the troubles on my way
I’m crawlin’ through the dark night
Waiting for my sunshine
All the demons I have faced
They’ve only made me stronger
Day by day

Confusion – check
Depression- check
The never ending questions – check
I believe, I believe, I believe they’ll fade away
(Away, away, away)
The nightmares – check
Aggression – check
The dark hallucinations – check
I believe, I believe, I believe they’ll fade away
(Away, away, away)

Give me rain and I will dance
Let me fall and I will rise
There’s no way I will give up
I’m gonna keep on dancin’
Just keep on dancin’

(Give me, give me rain
And I will dance, dance, dance, dance
Give me, give me rain
And I will dance, dance, dance, dance
)

Fly away
And if it’s hopeless and your mind is gray
(Na, na, na, na, na, na)
Just close your eyes and let the music flow-o-ow
Tonight we learn how to let it go
Yeah, just let it go

Confusion – check
Depression – check
The never ending questions – check
I believe, I believe, I believe they’ll fade away
(Away, away, away)
The nightmares – check
Aggression – check
The dark hallucinations – check
I believe, I believe, I believe they’ll fade away

Give me rain and I will dance
Let me fall and I will rise
There’s no way I will give up
I’m gonna keep on dancin’
Just keep on dancin’

Give me rain
Let me fall and I will rise
There’s no way I will give up
I’m gonna keep on dancin’
Just keep on dancin’
Just keep on dancin’

(Give me, give me rain
and I will dance, dance, dance, dance

Give me, give me rain
and I will dance, dance, dance, dance
)
