Background[edit]

When Alexander traved across Europe he meet some fantastic people to share the moment with. Some of his fans become true friends. This song is a story from that life on the road. Talking about the song he said: "I needed a new single for Eastern Europe and as I wrote the song, I grew fond of the melody and the story – so I decided to share it with all of you – in english. It´s a true story of a woman who travelled around half the world to babysit my doorstep, sent me 600 emails and always seems to find my new (secret!) phone number. I have to give her credit for her hard work in finding me wherever I am. I am a lucky man to even experience this, it´s something you normally only see in a movie. I got so inspired, that I had to write a song about it. I wanted the song to be a huge pop-anthem and luckily I got the perfect man for the job; David Eriksen has a heart for popmusic and he creates magic in his studio. So – here we are. I hope you like it. I think I wanna dance"[1]
