Mørland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like Me

Mørland is a Norwegian artist, songwriter and producer. Kjetil Mørland is originally from Grimstad, a small town on the south Norwegian coast, but has lived in the UK for most of his adult life. This has had great influence on him as an artist and songwriter. The music draws inspiration from british pop, and Kjetil has a very apparent talent for catchy melodies and personal evoking lyrics, which he delivers with his unique voice. The Shins, David Bowie, early Elton John and Talking Heads, and of course Lennon/McCartney are some of many sources of inspiration.

Mørland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like Me Lyrics:
Honey, I’m telling the truth
I did something terrible in my early youth
My mind went blank, I lost control
I was just a little boy, I did not know
I better let you go…

To find the prince you thought you found in me
I better set you free and give you up
Just wave and say goodbye and let you live
Without a monster like me
Honey, what am I to you
Now I have pulled the trigger on this awful truth
Oh hold me now, cause I’m burning up
Sing me something beautiful, just make it stop
I better let you go…

To find the prince you thought you found in me
I better set you free and give you up
Just wave and say goodbye and let you live
Without a monster like me.
