“The song has a lot of meanings,” says Erja about the single ‘Another World’. “First of all, it is a love story. It´s a dream about loving somebody in another dimension, because it´s not possible in this world. I have always loved sci-fi movies, so I wanted to add something extra-terrestrial and supernatural to the video, too.  It also points out how important it is for us to be aware of environmental aspects. Do we need to find another planet someday to be able to breathe? All this has been wrapped together by these two worlds happening at the same time, and how in the end it is important that we as lovers, and as a human race, could survive.”

"Another World"

Lyrics & Music: Erja Lyytinen
Arrangement by: Erja Lyytinen, Tatu Back, Iiro Laitinen

In another world there´s you and me
See us raising a family
No machines no noise around
Just happiness and love profound
Yellow roses, rosemary

Pick a berry from a tree
Everyone is growing no-one tearing down
If you want to harvest you need to nurture the ground

We´re caring cause we need to grow
We´re dreaming cause we want to know

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive

These empty rooms my reality
Co-existence my fantasy
Cause if we could leave here now
we could take off from the ground
We would see this current world is upside down

We´re caring cause we need to grow
We´re dreaming cause we want to know

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive

There´s another world for lovers in a parallel universe
There´s another world for lovers
There´s another world for lovers in a parallel universe
There´s another world for lovers
There´s another world for lovers in a parallel universe
There´s another world for lovers

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters Is that we survive

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive
