“I Miss One Week Ago” Oh Land

Danish Singer/songwriter Oh Land, recently released a new song, “I Miss One Week Ago.” The song, written “during the lock down”, serves as an elegy to a world that may now be permanently altered. “Last week on Wednesday night there was an announcement from the Danish government that they would take further actions to limit the spreading of COVID-19,” explains Oh Land. “Every day this past week has felt unreal, and it’s been hard to deal with the massive changes . The only way I could cope emotionally was by writing this song. I miss normal. I love normal. And I can’t wait for everything to be over.”

Fans Invited to Create Personal Versions of the Song:

In an effort to bring people together and create community — and perhaps some introspection — during this difficult time, Oh Land has also released the instrumental version of “I Miss One Week Ago”, and is inviting fans to write their own lyrics to create their own unique version of the song, to sing or perform the song on Instagram, and to tab Oh Land in the post. Oh Land will in turn repost as many of these as she can.

I Miss One Week Ago (lyrics)

One week ago from now

I worried that I’d lost my phone

And everyone who tried to reach me would be quite annoyed

One week ago I worried bout a phone

I miss one week ago

One week ago from now

When I was running late again

And missed my exit on the freeway

Couldn’t make a turn

One week ago I worried I was late

I miss one week ago

One week ago from now

I wondered who would appreciate

Or even get the music that I’m trying to create

One week ago I worried out of vain

I miss one week ago

One week ago from now

I got upset at 6am

When birds were chirping violently

The sun was peeking in

One week ago I worried

would I fall asleep again

I miss one week ago

One week ago from now

I worried bout a million Things

And all of them irrelevant cause everything has changed

and Of all my previous worries

I’m ashamed
