Murder Song (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) is the sixth single released by AURORA and the third single from the album "All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend". It was written by AURORA and Odd Martin Skålnes and produced by Skålnes and Magnus Skylstad. The song has two versions, the acoustic was released with a music video on August 25, 2015 and the studio version was released officially worldwide along the acoustic on September 4, 2015.
The studio version is on the standard version of the album while the acoustic is on the deluxe version.
AURORA uses song writing as therapy as a way of helping her face fears. The lyrics for this tune are penned from the victim's perspective: "He holds the gun against my head. I close my eyes, then bang! I'm dead." In this song she deals with the difficult things we must do to protect the people we love.
She said to the 405: "It's a tragic love story. Very tragic. The saddest thing is that he really loves her."
