Struggling with constant bad conscience

The Danish singer Søren Huss embraces the really big emotions in his music.

He writes about love, hope and new horizons. But also about loss and privation, as was the theme on the album 'the Faith and no' from 2010, as Søren Huss released, after he tragically lost his girlfriend and the mother of his daughter in a traffic accident.

But when Søren Huss must appoint the best song he's ever written, he highlights a number from his latest album.

A number that is about the relationship with his daughter, Ronja.

- What song is your best?

'Sometimes', from my album, 'Midtlivsvisen'. I think it is the most perfect song I have written, because text and melody, in my world is absolutely perfectly balanced.

- Where did you get the inspiration from?

- the Song is inspired by a Benny Andersen poem called 'Life is narrow and high'. In the poem, writes Benny Andersen: 'Measured along the life is short, but vertical, measured infinity', and it was the two sentences that started the song, because I think they describe the human condition.

- So I wrote the lines about 'life is short, measured in time around the sun, but it' so high, as your thought can reach, and so deep, as your heart dare to fall without going into the stand'.

- What is the meaning of the song for you?

- the Song is about forældreskabet and the lurking bad conscience - or the sensation of not completely turn to - which is almost to be born with the child, and as I can sense that I am not the only parent who is running around with.

- that one must live his adult life, while at the same time one must take care of her child, it has sometimes some consequences for the child. For example, in connection with the divorce or in my case, the deaths and subsequent grief, my child is also being marked by.

- If it is, that I have had to live my life, have made my child's spirit of adventure and sense of what life may bring, less, then I must take it on me. The is, 'Sometimes' is all about.
