Puppet Is the first track released by AURORA. It was recorded on December, 2012. The song went viral in Norway.

About the song (Writing and inspirations) Edit

This song is about a man who is stuck in an abusive relationship. AURORA paid for four hours in a studio to record the song for her parents as a christmas gift.

"Suddenly, three weeks after ["Puppet"] was released, I had management. And people were asking for interviews, and I got a few gigs. It was very strange. And I didn't even want to meet my management. I didn't have any use to become an artist, I didn't see the point of it. Then my mother told me that she felt this wonderful feeling between sadness and happiness, at the same time. She told me that if I could make her feel that way, maybe I could make people feel that way. And it would be selfish in one way to hide music from the world if it could be of any use. That kind of made me take the first step into the music industry." - AURORA[1]

Lyrics Edit

A dancing puppet doll made of wood
I bet he'd run away one day
If he could choose to leave or stay
He's got a string attached to every bone
She's got him round her little fingers
So she'll never feel alone

Oh sometimes I wonder, did he go
When lots of men have caused his soul
Dreaming about wonderland
Wakes up and he's a man

Sometimes I wonder, did he go
When lots of men have caused his soul
Dreaming about wonderland
Wakes up and he's a man

Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over another man's mind
Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over his mind

The idea of leaving her has struck his mind
When he sees her smile
He's hypnotised and he can't leave her behind
Looking to his left, there's the door
No need to try, tried once before
And their bones're hiding beneath the floor

Sometimes I wonder, did he go
When lots of men have caused his soul
Dreaming about wonderland
Wakes up and he's a man

Sometimes I wonder, did he go
When lots of men have caused his soul
Dreaming about wonderland
Wakes up and he's a man

Oh, she's taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over another man's mind
Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over his mind

When they where out to buy her wedding gown
She wanted nothing
But the dress over a hundred thousand pound
But what she wants, she gets, or she will cry
Hits the man with her umbrella
She'll continue 'till he dies

Sometimes I wonder, did he go
When lots of men have caused his soul
Dreaming about wonderland
Wakes up and he's a man

Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Taking control over his mind

Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over another man's mind
Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over his mind

Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over another man's mind
Oh, taking control over another man's mind
Oh taking control over his mind
