Eberson - Who Am I

English
A A

Who Am I

Don't know why
We don't tell you that you're mad
Don't know why
We pretend that you're just sad
 
All you imagine, another life
Yes you imagine another life
 
Let me flow to another place alone
Who am I? Who am I?
 
Don't know why
He will seem to come your way
Don't know who,
Good ideas inside your head
 
All you imagine, another time
Yes you imagine another time
 
Let it flow to another place alone
Who am I? Who am I?
 
Devil may seem bitter and sweet
But most of all, it's changed
And there is you, there is you
 
Devil may seem bitter and sweet
But most of all, it's changed
And there is you, there is you
 
Don't know why
Shouldn't tell me that we're out
Don't know why
Bad things happen when you're here
 
All you imagine, another time
Yes you imagine another time
 
Let it flow to another place alone
Who am I? Who am I?
 
Devil may seem bitter and sweet
But most of all, it's changed
And there is you, there is you
 
Devil may seem bitter and sweet
But most of all, it's changed
And there is you, there is you
 
Devil may seem bitter and sweet
But most of all, it's changed
And there is you

I listened to this song about 3 times and there are a couple lines that are ambiguous but there isn't a lot of context to go off of so I tried.

It's very strange. Could you "translate"? Please, give your interpretation - line by line.

I noticed it was a bit odd when I was transcribing one of their other songs and it hardly made sense in parts too, which you can see here: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/eberson-summer-rain-lyrics.html

Honestly, I'm not sure much of an interpretation is needed (and also because I just don't really understand the context of the song myself). it just seems like they're trying to be poetic and either don't know how, or don't possess the English skills in order to do so.

And sometimes, groups just write songs that are ambiguous or don't make sense on purpose just to be "different."

And I'm 100% willing to accept feedback because I may not have even heard the song properly in some parts.

It sounds interesting, like "norvegian jazz zen" and wakes imagination.
I try to meditate about another her song - Summer rain. Thank you
