Prior to the John Lewis's 2015 Christmas adverts, Aurora Aksnes was just a typical 19 years old Norwegian singer from Bergian, Norway, who was striving for a spot in the music industry. Through blogs and Soundcloud, she was already garnering a reputable number of fans who were intrigued by her soft and melodious voice. She then started to get attentions from the public especially in the United Kingdom and Ireland when she recorded a cover of  Oasis's "Half the World Away" for one of the famous retailers in the country, John Lewis's  Christmas advertisement this year. (I have written an entry about it preciously, check it out here).

Personally I find this cover is fantastic and her voice is as appealing as her appearance (she looks gorgeous)! I am looking forward to listening more of her songs in the future. What do you think of the "Half The World Away" cover by Aurora? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. If you have not watch the music video already, enjoy it below! Till then, au revoir! :)


Half The World Away lyrics

I would like to leave this city
This old town don't smell too pretty and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And when I leave this island
I'll book myself into a soul asylum
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
So here I go still scratching around the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old
So what do you say?
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You're half the world away
You're half the world away

And when I leave this planet, you know I'd stay but I just can't stand it and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And if I could leave this spirit, I'll find me a hole and I'll live in it
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
So here I go still scratching around in the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old
So what do you say?
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You're half the world away
You're half the world away

You're half the world away
I've been lost I've been found but I don't feel down
You're half the world away
I've been lost I've been found but I don't feel down
I don't feel down
(I've been lost I've been found)
