Ane Brun is a songwriter, guitarist and vocalist, born in Molde, Norway in 1976. Since 2003 she has recorded eight albums. She has lived in Stockholm, Sweden since 2001, where she writes, records and runs her own label (Balloon Ranger Recordings) when not on tour. She moved from her home town in 1995 and spend the next few years moving between Barcelona, Oslo and Bergen. In Bergen she began writing her own material while at university (jumping between courses in Spanish, law and music) as well as making a living working in record shops and bars. After playing a few minor shows and recording her first demos in Bergen in 1999, she moved first to Uppsala and then to Stockholm in 2001, where she started to take her musical career seriously. Ane recorded her debut album ‘Spending Time with Morgan’ in 2002 in both Stockholm and back in Uppsala, with engineers and producers Katharina Nuttall, Cécile Grudet and Kim Nelson. It was released on the label, DetErMine, which she formed with Ellekari Larsson from Swedish band The Tiny. The debut album came out in 11 European countries in 2003 through a licence/distribution deal with V2 Music.

After releasing the first album Ane toured around Europe but soon took some time out. She had been working intensively for two years and felt somewhat burnt out and in need of a break. After a six month breather she started touring around Europe again and within the next year had her second album ready. ‘A Temporary Dive’ was again produced by Katharina Nuttall and was released in 2005 throughout Europe, the US, Japan and Australia. This album took the darker themes of ‘Spending Time With Morgan’ further, through songs like “The Fight Song” and title track ‘A Temporary Dive’ but there was also space for the lighter ‘Song no 6’, a duet with Ron Sexsmith. ‘A Temporary Dive’ was well received all over the world, especially by the press, and it picked up many rave reviews in magazines and newspapers from Time Magazine to The Independent. She received award nominations from all over Europe too, and that year took home the Norwegian Grammy for Best Female Artist. After enjoying the collaboration on the previous few duets she had recorded, Ane was inspired to ask some artists whom she adored to sing with her on a full album called, of course, ‘Duets’. This album was released in November 2005 and besides another recording with Ron Sexsmith it also included songs with artists such as Syd Matters and Teitur. It was a collaboration with the band Madrugada on the single ‘Lift Me’ that gained her another Norwegian Grammy for the shelf at home. Ane spent much of the next couple of years touring the world in many different stage arrangements. She’s played with a full band including string section, just herself and string section at times, sometimes just a cello, perhaps with one backing vocalist – or maybe three. Of course it all started with her and the acoustic guitar, so she often ends up coming back to these solo performances too. “There is something about the focus in playing by myself that fascinates me”, she says. “There’s nothing to hide behind when I’m alone on stage and it becomes almost meditative for me when I play.”

One of her tours was with a string quintet, and it was recorded and released as ‘Live In Scandinavia’ (2007) and featured Nina Kinert and the guitarist Staffan Johansson. The album includes songs from Ane’s first two albums with new string arrangements by Malene Bay-Foged. The next year she released her third studio album, ‘The Changing of the Seasons’ which was produced by Icelandic Valgeir Sigurdsson (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Múm, Coco Rosie). It includes string arrangements by American composer Nico Muhly (Antony and the Johnsons, Grizzly Bear, ‘The Reader’ Soundtrack). Back on the road, a concert at the Stockholm Concert Hall was filmed and released as a live DVD in 2009. Also in this year came the album ‘Sketches’ which included acoustic, demo versions of the songs on ‘Changing of the Seasons’. The ‘Sketches’ tour featured a stripped down, sparse sound and now touring with musicians Rebekka Karijord, Jennie Abrahamson and Linnea Olsson, there were memorable gigs in places such as the Union Chapel in London. Late in 2009 Ane organised the ‘No More Lullabies’ concert to bring attention to the issues of climate justice. She assembled 24 well-known Swedish artists such as Robyn, Loney Dear, Titiyo and Benny Andersson of ABBA to take part in seven hours of live music and visuals to mark the International Day of Climate Action (October 24th). They succeeded in making some noise on the issue before the upcoming COP15 conference. In 2011 she will release a new album named It All Starts With One. The album is produced by Tobias Fröberg, and should have been recorded 2010, but was postponed when both Peter Gabriel and Ani Difranco – two artists who have meant a lot to Ane – asked her to join them on their tours. Peter Gabriel collaboration with the Scandinavian singer/songwriter continues on his next album New Blood, due to be released this year. The first single ”Do You Remember” from Ane Brun’s upcoming album was released on the 17th of May 2011.

Spending time with Morgan

Humming One Of Your Songs

I’m walking
I’m walking along

And I’m humming
I’m humming
One of your songs

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on and on

Everyday
I hear your song now
Everyday
It won’t go away

So I am humming
I’m humming
One of your songs

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on and on

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on and on

So I'm humming
I am humming
One of your songs

Are They Saying Goodbye

Are they saying goodbye
Or is it just like before
Could it be that I
Made him love her more
And does he curse upon my face
Do I symbolize disgrace
Could it be that I
Made him love her more

Well, I refuse to go deeper
I choose to go blind
This trouble just shouldn't be mine
But it's confusing my existence
It's intruding my mind
I guess this trouble is also mine

So I curse upon his face
He's a symbol of my own mistakes
Could it be that she
Makes me love him more

Well, I refuse to go deeper
I choose to go blind.
This trouble just shouldn't be mine
But it's confusing my existence
It's intruding my mind
I guess this trouble is also

Oh, I refuse to go deeper
I choose to go blind
This trouble just shouldn't be mine
But it's confusing my existence
It's intruding my mind
I guess this trouble
This trouble, this trouble
This trouble is also mine

On/Off

I look in the mirror and
I’m weaker than my reflection
This image is all I seek
As I restlessly wonder up a peek

So I turn it off
And on again
Just like the shifting lights
Of day and night in my doorway
And the memories
Of everything
That’s ever said and done
It makes it easier to leave it on

Monotony makes me weary
Assurance awakes destructiveness
As I lie in my diary
To justify the choices I made

So I turn it off
And on again
Just like the shifting lights
Of day and night in my doorway
And the memories
Of everything
That’s ever said and done
It makes it easier to leave it on
It makes it easier to leave it on
It makes it easier to leave it on

*** Thanx a lot to Lot for this one ***

I shot my heart

I shot my heart to let you go
I shot it down for you but you don't know
I let my soul grow cold
And it's all, it's all I could

Since then I've been reckoning the scars I left on your skin
I've been recognizing the bullets I used for the execution
They went straight through me and into you
And that's where they are stuck in
Since then I've been reckoning the scars I left on your skin

I turned myself into
A different kind of me to be able to
Set my pride aside
And it's all, it's all I could

I'm turning myself in
Crawling down in my coffin
I'm turning myself in
Crawling down in my coffin

I shot my heart to let you go
I shot it down for you but you don't know
I let my soul grow cold
And it's all, it's all I could

Drowning in those eyes

It’s like you’re standing on my chest
Looking down
Looking down

It’s like you’re standing on my chest
Looking down
Looking down
With your eyes at me, at me

I am drowning in those eyes
I am drowning in those eyes
I am drowning in those eyes

I can’t breathe
Oh you are
I can’t breathe
With you on top of me
It’s like you’re standing on my chest
Looking down
Looking down
With your eyes at me, at me

I am drowning in those eyes
I am drowning in those eyes
I am drowning in those eyes

I am drowning in those eyes
I am drowning in those eyes
I am drowning in those eyes

So you did it again

So you did it again
I guess you've done this before
You lay all your time and money
On the fuckin' wrong horse

So you did it again
I guess you've been here before
A little kissin' and a lovin'
And your best judgement
Just lying on the floor
Just lying on the floor

So you did it once more
I guess you closed your eyes
Your heartbeat ringin' in your ears
Your fingers through his hair
Oh why oh why oh why
Oh why oh why yeah

One more time

I'll try one more time
One more time
To know you
I’ll try one more time
One more time
To understand
The values you lost
And we kept
What we learned
While you slept
Makes a difference between you and me
It is scary
And makes me wonder one more time
One more time

It´s taking you and me
And everyone to somewhere
Where all conciousness is gone
You walk with your head down
See only the tip of your shoes
And the ground and dirt you walk on

Who taught you to despice
And tell lies you never knew weren't true
Tell each other lies
All lies

The stream you follow to make you strong

It´s taking you and me
And everyone
To somewhere
Where all conciousness is gone
You walk with your head down
See only the tip of your shoes
And the ground and dirt you walk on

I’ll try one more time
One more time
To understand
One more time
One more time

Headphone silence

I´m travelling the wonderful loneliness
Of the headphone silence
Feels like noone can see me
They see right through me
Cuts me off from the rest of the world

The useless strangers sharing my time and space
They might hear my humming, my tapping of fingers anyway
At least I have my thoughts all to myself
My content and the view outside

I see a rainbow complete
Resting its feet on the hill and the ground
Works as an illustration to the sound
This is a whole in time
A couple of hours when the day is
More abstract than usually

I star in this movie
I play the part and unify
With the soundtrack in my head
It could be morning it could be night
I could be anywhere
The headphone silence Which fills my head

I´m travelling the wonderful loneliness
Of the headphone silence

*** Thanx a lot to Eva for this one ***

What I Want

Yesterday we did it again
We did what we're supposed to
What is expected of
This constallation of two

Oh that's what I want
That's what I want
Oh that's what I like
That's what I like

Don't let anybody tell you different
Don't let them know
Oh that's what I want
That's what I want

You say that filling me
Is what's filling you
Don't tell them what
What fills you more

Oh that's what I want
Oh that's what I like
Oh that's what I want
Oh that's what I want

Oh that's what I want
That's what I want
Oh that's what I like
That's what I like

Don't let anybody tell you different
Don't let them know
Oh that's what I want
That's what I want

Sleeping by the Fyris River

It´s dawn
The crack of dawn
A saxophone, an armchair, and a small drum

Sunrise, all smiles
It's crack of dawn by the Fyris River
Spring morning
We're singing
The grass is wet from dew
And me and you from wine too
Keeping our feet up
Keeping our feet up
In one armchair by the Fyris River

Sleeping three people in
One armchair by the Fyris River
Sleeping three people in
One armchair by the Fyris River

It's dawn
The crack of dawn
A saxophone, an armchair and a small drum
People passing by
The grass is almost dry
We're sleeping by the Fyris River

Sleeping three people in
One armchair by the Fyris River
Sleeping three people in
One armchair by the Fyris River

Wooden Body

When I rest my chest
On this wooden body
Feel my soul pour through my mouth
So that everyone can hear it
Come out

That’s when I know
What it is about
That’s when I realize
How coincident made me find this
One thing inside of me

That’s when I know
What it is about
That’s when I realize
Realize
Realize, realize
Realize

When I rest my chest
On this wooden body
Feel my soul pour through my mouth
So that everyone can hear it
Come out, Come out

That’s when I know
What it is about
That’s when I realize
Realize
Realize, realize
Realize

A Temporary Dive

*** Thanx a lot to Wintermute for these lyrics ***

To Let Myself Go

To let myself go
To let myself flow
Is the only way of being
There's no use telling me
There's no use taking a step back
A step back for me...

Rubber & Soul

In my mind I'm crawling on your floor
Vomiting and defeated
Total absence of grace
Your reluctant voice saying
You decide your own fate but

I wear rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from crawling
And these rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from falling

In my repeated dreams
You stare at me with an empty gaze
You turn your back on me
And you search for more intriguing days
Loathing this
Controlling this
Let me get a hold of this so

I wear rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from crawling
And these rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from falling

So then when you are not in my dreams
And not in my mind
But we are at the same place at the same time
Rubber no longer holds
The borders of my soul

Balloon Ranger

Your voice
Morphine in my ear
I see you down there
Holding on to me

Balloon Ranger
Balloon Ranger
Balloon Ranger
Balloon Ranger

You're holding on to this thread
Connecting you to me
I'm filled with laughing gas and polluted air
This silk lasso 'round my neck
It's pulling me down
Down gently
Gently

I'm softly exhaling
You give me release
I'm softly exhaling
You give me release

You leave me deflated
You give me release
My own private Balloon Ranger
You know what I need
You know what I need
You know what I need
You know what I need

Balloon Ranger
Balloon Ranger
Balloon Ranger
Balloon Ranger

My Lover will go

What am I gonna do
I am crying a bottle of wine over you
This is something I don’t usually do
But I’m crying a bottle of wine over you

For me it is red or nothing
Hey ho my lover will go
And this will ruin everything
Hey ho my lover will go
I’m just too romantic
Hey ho my lover will go
Without any sense of strategies
Hey ho my lover will go, oh oh

Twelve days and many long nights have passed
Since I let go of my heart way to fast
Too many long summer nights
I've been checking for errors on the telephone lines

For me it is red or nothing
Hey ho my lover will go
And this will ruin everything
Hey ho my lover will go
I’m just too romantic
Hey ho my lover will go
Without any sense of strategies
Hey ho my lover will go, oh oh
My lover will go, oh oh

What am I gonna do
I am pouring my heart all over you
I guess I recognize this too
I think I’m falling in love with you

For me it is red or nothing
Hey ho my lover will go
And this will ruin everything
Hey ho my lover will go
I’m just too romantic
Hey ho my lover will go
Without any sense of strategies
Hey ho my lover will go, oh oh
My lover will go, oh oh
My lover will go, oh oh
My lover will go, oh oh

Temporary Dive

I fell down in that hole again
I am a lump of jelly
I am a dead fish

I look up at the blue sky
Aand I know that it's just
A temporary dive

Sometimes we tip toe
Sometimes we run
Sometimes we wander while
Looking at the sun

Sometimes we tip toe
Sometimes we run
Sometimes we wander while
Looking at the sun

Sitting on the cold dirt floor
I want to finish the counting of days on the walls
I build a ladder from broken wish bones
And square-shaped stones
That my friends threw down in the hole

Sometimes we tip toe
Sometimes we run
Sometimes we wander while
Looking at the sun

Sometimes we tip toe
Sometimes we run
Sometimes we wander while
Looking at the sun

And even though I read maps to avoid them
They change location every day
And somehow all of my traces they vanish
But shall one stay put
Shall one lay low
 Shall one not go
Just to avoid this hole

Sometimes we tip toe
Sometimes we run
Sometimes we wander while
Looking at the sun

Sometimes we tip toe
Sometimes we run
Sometimes we wander while
Looking at the sun

Laid in Earth

( Henry Purcell )

When I am laid in earth
I'm laid in earth
May my wrongs create
No trouble
No trouble
In thy breast

Remember me
Remember me
But ah...
Forget my faith

Remember me
Remember me
But ah...
Forget my faith

This Voice

This voice
Is it calling
Is it calling
It's your choice
She said
Take or let go
Is it calling
When you're all alone
In your own sweet home
Is it calling
This voice
Is it calling

I have to say
I choose get out of my way
Leave my ghost alone
Let me walk on by
Let me walk on by
Let me walk on by
Let me walk on by

This voice
It is calling
It is calling for me
If you still haven't heard it
You shouldn't ask for it
You should just leave it be
'Cause you're deaf until
The day for you it will
Be calling
This voice
It is calling

Where Friend Rhymes With End

My friend you left me in the end
I can't believe I'm writing a song
Where friend rhymes with end
But today
I must cave in
I have trouble forgetting those beautiful eyes
As it is
I must fill your space with lies

Friend
You left me in the end
I guess I knew it all along
I guess I expected this song
And it is as it appeared
Like a fist in my stomach and
Swallowing tears
Your song turned out a sad one
Just as I feared

Song No. 6

( Duet with Ron Sexsmith)

It would be so easy
To sing a song about you
It would be so easy
To sing a sobby pink song about you

I would spend three or four lines
On describing your eyes
And then the next three or four lines
On the dimples of your smile
And then I would tell the world
About the way you hold my hand
And they would
They would understand

It is so easy
To sing this song about you
What you are is inside of me
Could easily be
Could easily be
Could be expressed through
This sobby pink song about you

I would spend three or four lines
On describing your eyes
And then the next three or four lines
On the dimples of your smile
And then I would tell the world
About the way you hold my hand
And they would
They would understand
And they would understand
And they would understand
And they would understand

I would spend three or four lines
On describing your eyes
And then the next three or four lines
On the dimples of your smile
And then I would tell the world
Tell the world
About the way you hold my hand
And they would
They would understand

The Fight Song

I'm gonna fight
This fight
And try to get out of here
And I'm going in with my life
To make sure that you'll disappear

And I will mount you
Press my knees on both sides
And you will let me
Let me, let me ride

And if you don't than I won't
Leave you galloping in my national park
I'll track you down
 'Cause I know
Every corner of this countryside

And I will mount you
Press my knees on both sides
And you will let me
Let me, let me ride

I'll pull your mane
As hard as I can
Stick my fingers in your mouth with my cramped-up hand
Until you stop
Then I'll try to get off
Still I'm hanging in your body parts

And even though you are ten Goliaths
I'll hold
I'll hold at feast your head
And as I rest on my wounded left
I'll kick you randomly in the chest
And I'll show you how ribs can capture air
And leave unbearable pressure

And when you're down
I'll lay beside you
I'll catch the remaining glimmer in your eyes
And then later
I'll ask you
As my last and final rescue

Now you know
Tell me why
And then I'll let you
I'll let you ride

Now you know
Tell me why
And I'll let you
Let you, let you ride

Duets

Little lights

 (Duet with Syd Matters)

All of those little lights in the sky
They only stick your feet to the ground
You'd better keep your head down

All of this little dreams in your mind
They only make you wonder why
When you wake up you start to cry
When you come home you just want to die

There was a time you seemed to be fine
You were a rock when you were a child
Waiting for the turn of the tide

You thought the stars were sending you love
How come you never wondered why
When you came home, you started to cry
When you woke up, you wanted to die

All of this little lights in the sky
If you can make them fall you will rise
Just turn the mic of time

I thought I could be able to find
Something to save all I left behind
But as I grew up I changed my mind
And only remained the stars in the sky
With your innocense fly by

*** Thanx a lot to Jonas for this one ***

Lift me

( Duet with Madrugada )

Lift me, lift me from the ground
And don´t ever put me down, oh no
And don’t pick a fight with me
Just flip a coin my love, you’ve won

Oh Love, slips her hand inside my hand
Oh Love, slips her hand inside my hand
I don´t care if you don’t want me
I’m yours, I’m yours right now

Our years, are years well spent
We may never find out where they went, oh no
And I don’t mean to fight with you
Now all our troubles and all our struggles they are through

Oh Love, slips her hand inside my hand
Oh Love, slips her hand inside my hand
I don´t care if you don’t want me
I’m yours, I’m yours right now

The wolf and the fox
They’re sleeping soundly with the elk and the ox
There’s a starry field around
This lowlit kingdom
Where all our defences are down

Oh Love, slips her hand inside my hand
Oh Love, slips her hand inside my hand
I don´t care if you don’t want me
I’m yours, I’m yours right now

Wrecked, poor, naked and blind
I’m yours, I’m yours, right now

Rubber and soul

( Duet with Teitur )

In my mind I`m crawling on your floor
Vomiting and defeated
Total absence of grace
Your reluctant voice
Saying you decide your own fate

But I wear rubberbands round my soul
They keep me from crawling
And these rubberbands round my soul
They keep me from falling

In my repeated dreams
You stare at me with an empty gaze
You turn your back on me
And you search for more intriguing days

Loathing this
Controlling this
Let me get a hold of this

So I wear rubberbands round my soul
They keep me from crawling
And these rubberbands round my soul
They keep me from falling

And then when you are not in my dreams
And not in my mind
But we are at the same place
At the same time
Rubber no longer holds
The borders of my soul

This Road

( Duet with Lars Bygdén )

I’ve walked this road, went up and down
I’ve walked this road a thousand times
I’ve walked up and ‘round the bend
To find this road it has no end
The road is hard the road is long
It tears you up and wears you down
It feeds you hope and then make you blue
This dirty road where I met you

I saw your face in filthy bars
Where I fed my broken heart
And when I finally caught your eye
I knew a part in me had died
And with my mind too dim to think
I took your hand and I paid your drink
And then we strolled on to my home
A little further down the road

Soon comes the time when you stop to bother
Slowly the wine it’ll turn to water
It’s hard to help it even though you know
Soon you’ll be back on that old road

A few years later down that road
A thousand fights and slamming doors
A thousand lies that I did tell
Hope you still love me anyway
You know there’s changes bound to come
You got me scared and I did run
It took some time but now I know
I won’t go back down that old road

Stop

( Sam Brown Cover / Duet with Liv Widell )

All that I have is all that you've given me
Did you never worry that I'd come to depend on you
I gave you all the love I had in me
But now I find you've lied and I can't believe it's true

Wrapped in her arms I see you across the street
And I can't help but wonder if she knows what's going on
You talk of love but you don't know how it feels
When you realise that you're not the only one

Ooooh you'd better stop
Before you tear me all apart
You'd better stop
Before you go and break my heart
Oooh you'd better stop

Time after time I've tried to walk away
But it's not that easy when your soul is torn in two
So I just resign myself to it every day
Now all I can do is to leave it up to you

Ooooh you'd better stop
Before you tear me all apart
You'd better stop
Before you go and break my heart

Oooh you'd better stop if you love me
Now's the time to be sorry
I won't believe that you'd walk out on me
Baby

Across the Bridge

( Written by The Tiny / Duet with Ellekari Larsson )

Cross the bridge, go downtown
Then cross your heart, and you will find
A story never told a reason to grow old…

Still don´t know is this for real
Still my heart can always heal
Still don´t know is this for real
When colours they seem to fade
When I´m around

Neighbours never reckognize
The guy upstairs with no disguise
He´s see-through, as it seems
But I know he´s in my dreams
I wish that I could go with him
And feel the strenght he has within
And make him understand
That I don´t know what is planned

Still don´t know is this for real
Still my heart can always heal
Still don´t know is this for real
When colours they seem to fade
When I´m around

And now I´ve seen his footprints on the ground
Across the bridge and down the street in downtown
Still don´t know is this for real
Still my heart can always heal
Still don´t know is this for real
When colours they seem to fade when I´m around

Across the bridge and down the street in downtown

Easier

(Duet with Magnus Tingsek)

Ohh what a feeling I have inside today
No lack of faith in me, like yesterday
I have too remember exactly where I am
'Cause I don't wanna go in the wrong direction again

Because I have no worries,
Altogether feels easier, right now then ever
I have no worries, no, altogether, feels easier

It's raining outside today, it's getting dark by the noon
Ice cold winter dancing outside my window
I light up a candle, I poor my self some tea.
Inside I'm laughing at how easy it can be

I guess I have no worries,
Altoghter feels easier, right now then ever
I have no worries, no, altogether, feels easier

*** Thanx a lot to Sandra for this one ***

Love & Misery

( Duet with Tobias Fröberg )

The best in me
Look at us and try to see
Look at me
I´m your love and misery

The best in you
I understand what you can do
Understand me
I´m your love and misery

You may go
It´s okay restless as you are
Rest with me
I´m your love and misery

This is true
I am fragile just like you
You and me
We are love and misery

Such a common bird

( Duet with Wendy McNeill )

I am a lone wolf
A beauty and a beast
Both hunter and hunted
Soft tongue and sharp teeth
I toned from my travels
Yet raw from this road
As I drink from storm puddles
And the stories I'm told

Help me figure this out
Help me figure you in
You're a shadow to me
That I echo when I sing
Help me figure this out
Help me figure you in
To this simple little melody

I have seen angels
They were sleeping in gutters
They were standing in bank lines
They were jumping from towers
They were calling like seagulls
But nobody heard
Such a beautiful message
From such a common bird

We want freedom for ourselves
But we can't give it to each other
We want peace between nations
Yet we battle with our lovers
We're blinded by billboards
And trying to get ahead
We're choking on ambitions
And the words left unsaid
And the words left unsaid
With a simple little melody

I am a lone wolf
A beauty and a beast
Both hunter and hunted
Soft tounge and sharp teeth
I'm toned from my travels
Yet raw from this road
As I drink from storm puddles
And the stories I'm told

Help me figure this out
Let me out
Help me figure you in
Let me in
You´re a shadow to me
You are me
That I echo when I sing
When you sing
Help me figure you out
Let me out
Help me figure you in
Let me in

Changing of the seasons

The treehouse song

When I woke
I took the backdoor to my mind
And then I spoke
I counted all of the good things you are

And that list of charms was
Longer than my chain of broken hearts
And when the day was done
I figured I had already lost
From the start, from the start

I was gonna love you till the end of all daytime
And I was gonna keep all our secret signs and our lullabies
I was made to believe that our love would grow old
We were gonna live in a tree-house and make babies
And we were gonna bury our ex-lovers and their ghosts
Baby we were made of gold

So many times
We drank fine wine in one swallow
And in those late nights
We painted our walls bright yellow

The fall

I’ll get off this boat in a minute
‘Cause I know you’ll be safer without me in it

Then you called
I love you so
Don’t ever let me go
I will fall to the ground

At the time
That we met
We were whole
Then we peeled off
Piece by piece of our souls
We were wrong to stay this long
Let me go
Let me fall to the ground

I’m waiting for you to disarm me
I’ll go off if you don’t remove this weight off of me

The puzzle

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of

Her remains were spread out like the pieces of a puzzle
It took her 365 days putting them together
The pieces were quite difficult to distinguish from each other
They were tiny and the clear blue sky
Went on forever

Clearly the corners were an easy start
That was when everyone was still
Helping me out
When it was time to fill in the frames
They left, they thought I ought
To have gotten over you
By then

Her remains were spread out like the pieces of a puzzle
It took her 365 days putting them together
The pieces were quite difficult to distinguish from each other
They were tiny and the clear blue sky
Went on forever

I wouldn’t do that to you
I wouldn’t do that to you
I wouldn’t do that to you
I wouldn’t do that to you

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of
I never heard of…

My star

You are my star
I’ll stay and catch your fall
Pack your belongings
We’ll hide out
We’ll see it coming

Cause I know you now
I’ll know when you’ll start running
It’s when your dark brown eyes turn black
And I won’t let them suck you in

You are so far
The one who makes me better
In your surroundings
I’m the one I want to be

And you know me now
You know that I’ll come running
It’s when you’re dark brown eyes turn black
I’ll never let them suck you in

My love

Ten seconds

He spends his days worrying how
And when he is gonna die
That is irony in fine
He loves life so much, that’s why
Even if he knows that it is true
He can’t help it in the end

It is those ten seconds
Those ten seconds in your head
When you don’t wonder if you’re alright
You’re just hanging around with yourself, with yourself

Now the weight comes crashing in
I’m trapped in my own skin
Silence, where did you go
You left without letting me know
I don’t want to hear this music
I am a carcass I cannot use it

It is those ten seconds
Those ten seconds in your head
When you don’t wonder if you’re alright
You’re just hanging around with yourself , with yourself

Changing of the seasons

He falls asleep on her chest
The best sleep he'd ever met
Nevertheless
He dreams of some stranger's caress

He awakes and he knows
Maybe someone else is supposed
To meet his hazy anticipating eyes

He draws the curtains aside
Unfolding the first morning light
He glances at his disenchanted life

Restlessness is me, you see
It's hard to be safe
It's difficult to be happy

It's the changing of the seasons
He says 'I need them'
I guess I’m too Scandinavian
The relief of spring

Intoxication of summer rain
The clearness of fall
How winter makes me reconsider it all

Restlessness is me, you see
It's hard to be safe
It's difficult to be happy

And then she awakes
Reaches for the embrace
He decides
Not to worry about seasons again

Lullaby for grown-ups

Go to sleep
With closed eyes
Your prophecies
Won’t be fulfilled tonight

When you think
Of falling skies
Remember there are a million ways to die

Don’t be afraid
Anymore
Don’t wear your inside out
To keep you warm

So rest your head
It’s just as well
You can’t keep the sky from falling
Anyway

Raise my head

I will raise my head now
And travel further than this time
Take all, there is to take on
And then unravel this cellophane mind

I’ve got my best shoes on
I’m ready for it all
Bring in your best crew, come on
I’m ready for it all

I know, for quite a while now
You’ve been knocking silently on my door
I, I’ve been avoiding
Your radiant words on my bedroom walls

I’ve got my best shoes on
I’m ready for it all
Bring in your best crew, come on
I’m ready for it all

Armour

Welcome, my dear friend
I notice you are wearing your armour again
Is it the same as our last fight
Is it residue from last night

Well, I guess I have extended it
I tried to bend it a bit
There was a crack under the chest frame
And a loose screw on the left steel hand

I have to be patient now
I’ll wear this edition somehow
Tell myself that it’s alright
Pick up the loose screws one more time

Cause this armour’s different pieces
Were delivered from different places
With their own delivery dates
I have no choice but to wait

Round table conference

There’s a round table conference going on
Right here in my living room
I’ve been caught behind the door for so long
I don’t even know who is coming in

All I can hear are these mysterious words
I am feeling delirious
I got to get out of here
To where the air is clearer

There’s a round table conference going on
Right here in my living room
I’ve been caught behind the door for so long
I don’t even know who is coming in

There are streams of people passing through my door
I can’t count them anymore
I don’t understand where they’re going or where they’ve been
I don’t even know why I let them in

Gillian

Gillian played me a song
It was that day when everything was wrong
Gillian singing in my heart, in my ears
And tears running down
I was facing the ground

Gillian played me a song
I was so tired, then the music caressed my skin
Like when someone finally holds you
And you can give in
This you’ve been avoiding
You think you’ll fall apart
But it’s just that new start

She sang about Elvis, she sang about time
Gillian sang about Miss Ohio
And the last remaining song
I stretch my rigid fingers
I clear my throat
This will be all over soon

Now this is long ago
I listen to her and I go back
To that day, that month, that year
That day will never leave my mind
Gillian played me a song

Gillian played me a song
It was that day when everything was wrong
Gillian singing in my heart, in my ears
And tears running down
I was facing the ground

She sang about Elvis, she sang about time
Gillian sang about Miss Ohio
And the last remaining song
I stretch my rigid fingers, I clear my throat
This will be all over soon

She sang about Elvis, she sang about time
Gillian sang about Miss Ohio
And the last remaining song
I stretch my rigid fingers, I clear my throat
This will be all over soon
This will be all over soon

*** Thanx a lot to Cantseenewyork for this one ***

Don't leave

Don’t ever leave
That is what you asked of me
Do you know what it means
When you plead?

Don’t you ever leave
That is what you said to me
Do you know what that can do
To someone like me

It won’t do us no good
It won’t do us no good

I have no plan to be
Anywhere else to but here
Or to become someone that leaves
I didn’t even know there was an exit here
Darling, don’t you try
To capture me

It won’t do us no good
It won’t do us no good

I am here now
I’m right here by your side
I’ll lay my hand on the couch next to you
You can hold it if you would like to

It will do you good

Linger with pleasure

I’ll rent a house somewhere
I’ll listen to biosphere
And all I see there
A straight line in the atmosphere
Every hour will be longer
And I’ll linger with pleasure

The only visitor I will invite
Is the whispering wind or the sunlight
I’ll leave all disturbants at home
The evening papers and the telephone
But I’ll bring my memories
Despite everything
I hope life will miss me

Maybe this is wishful thinking
And maybe I’ll just keep on sinking
But sometimes it’s enough to know
That there is a place where everything is on hold
Where the hours will be longer
And I’ll linger with pleasure

It All Starts With One

These days

There were nights and mornings
When you came to me
Found your way into my bones, my joints
Into my veins
Like an animal you coiled your darkness around me
You spelled your name in charcoal
All over my body

But these days
I just walk with you
These days
I let you stay

A little further away
But I walk with you
These days
I'll let you stay

There were summer days and nights
When I was blind to you
You were quiet and you were still
Even when the moon was full
My temporary state of lightness would scare me
After all, I was sure
You were most stronger, I was daring

But these days
I just walk with you
These days
I let you stay

These days
I just talk with you
These days
I let you stay

A little further away
But I walk with you
These days
I let you stay

The things you've shown me over the years
The roads you blocked and how you'll define me

These days
I just walk with you
These days
I let you stay

These days
I just talk with you
These days, these days

These days, these days
These days, these days
These days, these days

These days, these days
These days, these days
These days, these days

Words

Words, take her with you
Let her rest in your rhyme
Words, take her away
Somewhere, beyond time

Words, ease her breathing
Lay her softly on the floor
There, let her linger
And listen like ever before

Leave, her windows, uncovered at night
And fill her room with the city lights
As they illuminate the sky
It reminds her of the people outside
‘Cause she won't sleep
Unless she heals her loneliness

Walk with her
Beneath the tree tops
Create new paths and memories
Show her, how the sunlight
Glances through the gaps between the leaves

Words, help her change the world
In only one verse
Tell her to reach for the stars
And to always put love first

Leave, her windows, uncovered at night
And fill her room with the city lights
As they illuminate the sky
It reminds her of the people outside
It reminds her of the people
It reminds her of the people
It reminds her of the people outside

Do You Remember

Do you remember that late morning
When we went back to bed
When we found our first position
And every muscle rested

I do remember that I already
Knew it was the last time
The last time for first positions
The last time you beeing mine

Do you remember the scars I showed you
The stories I told you
How I always said forever
When you asked me to stay true

Do you remember when we forgot how
To smile at each other
To believe that the other
Wants only what’s good for you

Do you remember that late morning
When we went back to bed
When we found our first position
And every muscle rested

I do remember that I already
Knew it was the last time
The last time for first positions
The last time you beeing mine

What's Happening With You And Him

What's happening with you and him
Do you believe you can find a way to begin again
Is it still there, do you really care
Do you need this, is this the love that you missed

What's happening with you and him
Are you looking for each other
Around your old selves again
Walking on old paths inhaling the dust
Is this the love that got lost

What if you don't know
What if you just let time show
Is it worth it, is it sane, when love goes away again
Can you get yourself together then

What's happening with you and him
Do you believe you can find a way to begin again
Can you trust him, can you take his word
Can you really really give him yours

What's happening with you and him
Are you looking for each other
Around your old selves again
Walking on old paths inhaling the dust
Is this the love that got lost

What if you don't know
What if you just let time show
Is it worth it, is it sane, when love goes away again
Can you get yourself together then

When love goes away again
Can you get yourself together then

Let love show its own face
Let love show our faith
Let love show its own face
Let love show our faith

Let love show its own face
Let love show our faith
Let love show its own face

Lifetime

All this time
I've been drawing your lifeline
As I held your hand in mine
I've been smoothing out our troubles
While my own I left behind

All this time
I've been painting our portrait
But I can't seem to make it shine
The angle doesn't seem to matter
Perhaps the problem's with the light

It's taking so long
And it's gonna take a little more
Please prove me wrong
Is it gonna take a little more

All in time
A whisper speaks of gladness
Sweet release and smiles
I'll be carrying your laughter
Like a favourite work of art

One

It all starts somewhere
It all starts with one
Everything comes from something
It all starts with one

It all starts somewhere
It all starts with one
Nothing comes from nothing
It all starts with one

First everything is dry
Before the dew and the drops align
Then the rain starts falling down
Then comes the flood, the flood
That’s right the flood
The flood, the flood

We all start somewhere
We all start with one
Everyone comes from something
We all start with one

We all start somewhere
We all start with one
No one comes from nothing
We all start with one

First everything is quiet
A breath of air from lips and tongue
Then the sound makes the world wild
One, two, three more
We can do more
Much more, let's do more
Much more, let's say more
We are more

Stones from dust
Anger from fear
Poetry from heartbeats
Revolution from dreams
Revolution from dreams
Revolution from dreams

It all starts somewhere
It all starts with one
Everything comes from something
It all starts with one
Starts with one

The Light From One

I am holding your torch
I won't hold it no more
You can have it, take it, use it

I am holding your torch
I won't hold it no more
You can have it, take it, use it

I'll need both my hands to hold my own
I need only one light
The light from one

I'm in your room
We've been here for weeks now
Your windows are painted
With nothing real
I hear music, filtering through it all
I press my ear against the wall

I'll need both my hands to hold my own
I need only one light
The light from one

Before it gets dark
Before it's all gone
I know I have to put yours down
The light is going dim
Our torches, they are both fading

I'll need both my hands to hold my own
I need only one light
The light from one

I'll need both my hands to hold my own
I need only one light
The light from one

I'll need both my hands
I'll need both my hands
I'll need both my hands
I'll need both my hands

I'll need both my hands to hold my own
I need only one light
The light from one

Oh Love

Oh love
Right from the start
You were old love
Like we've never been parted
You kissed me
Your hands down my side to my hips
Still shivers inside
All the breathing
From your mouth through mine
About how long
There's hunger for one more time
Lover of mine, when I kissed you
I felt so good

Tell this tale to me
Well I won't believe
That I'm already here
Tell this tale to me
No, I won't believe
That we're already here

Oh love, you covered my skin
With your eyes as they found me
I kissed you, danced in your sand
And fell into a never ending moment
And the whisper from your mouth through mine
With those words that gently filled my lungs
Lover of mine, when I'm with you
I forget how am I to being lonely
Living without you
Spend another day passing by you
Don't wanna know how it feels if I do

Tell this tale to me
No, I won't believe
That I'm already here

Tell this tale to me
I won't believe
That we're already here

Tell me, this is real
No, I won't believe
I won't believe
No, I won't believe
No, I won't believe
No, I won't believe

Undertow

I must follow
These movements wherever they go
I must follow
These movements wherever they go
I'm caught in your undertow
Caught in your undertow

I've been trying
So hard, I've been out here so long
I've been trying
So hard, I've been swimming so long
I'm caught in your undertow
I'm caught in your undertow

Take me out to sea
Away from you and me
Let me float
Lead me out to sea
Let me go
Let me rise towards the sky
Let me take in this light
Let the shore disappear from sight
I'm caught in your undertow
Caught in your undertow
Caught in your undertow

I'm so tired
I must get up for air
But I can't find it
What's up or what's down out here
I'm caught in your undertow
Caught in your undertow

Take me out to sea
Away from you and me
Let me float
Lead me out to sea
Let me go
Let me rise towards the sky
Let me take in this light
Let the shore disappear from sight
I'm caught in your undertow
I'm caught in your undertow
Undertow
Undertow
Undertow

Dirty Windshield

You smiled at me
Through a dirty windshield
You just got back
From where the cyclone hit
You said you've been
In the center of it
Where it was all so still

Later that day
You told me your story
You were in a fight
And you still survived
You discovered a timeline without end
And all you had was an inch to spend

When nighttime fell
You talked about how
You see life as a chain
Of moments in vain
They are stepping stones to lead you forward
You don't look over shoulders

The morning after
You had a dream
Where you realized
You had to do some sight
Engraved right there
We are lover's sights
There we are like four eyes

Take It Slow

Take it slow, take it slow
You and me let's take it slow
Take it slow, take it slow
You and me, let's take it slow

What does it mean to take it slow
It all seems so mean when we take it slow

Take it slow, take it slow
You and me, let's take that slow
Come on to me, slowly
And take a slow slow slow slow night
Just you and me

Take it slow, take it slow
You and me let's take it slow
Take it slow, take it slow
You and me, let's take it slow

What does it mean to take it slow
It all seems so mean when we take it slow

Take it slow, take it slow
You and me let's take it slow
Take it slow, take it slow
When you're next to me
I can't take it slow

One Last Try

I wish I had one last try
Hidden somewhere inside
But it’s all been spend before

When I reach for it I can sense it in my hand
And when I try to grasp it
It’s like sand, or water
Through my hopeful fingers

This just won’t hold, hold
This just won’t hold, hold

There’s something so half-full about us
We get so little but what we get it tastes so much
We’re always longing for more

Is this the end of the thread
The thread that led me to loose my head
Over something that started with/in wonder

This just won’t hold, hold

And even if a butterfly lives a houndred years
Or the stream of water turns around in the rivers
You and me, we’ll still be the same
You and me, we’ll still be the same

Queen And King

You were my queen
My queen, my everything
When you reigned, I followed
Oh where is your queendom today

You were my king
My king, my everything
I obeyed and I bowed
Oh where is your kingdom today

Your love was my air
And my air was yours already
Love is all that I had
To bring to my queen and king

I looked up at you
You looked down on me
Winner now of your hand
Wipe your tears
My queen is dead

Your worst mistake has walls
They can not be moved, not be
No one moves a brick wall
With their hands, only over their hearts

Tell me now how this works
King and queen
When it hurts
Do a bow and follow
Do I spread my wings and fly

Du Gråter Så Store Tåra

(English Version)

Your tears are much heavier these days
I've seen them coming in like waves
From the ocean I've seen them calling
From the ocean I've seen them growing

I move in with the water
The rocking is getting most of you
And I'll sail with you any way
We will make it a little farther
Don’t you worry, we’re almost there

You and me
I will be here
Always here
You and me

Your tears are much heavier these days
I've seen them coming in like waves
From the ocean I've seen them calling
From the ocean I've seen them growing

I move in with the water
I move in with the water

You and me
I will be here
Always here
You and me
I will be here
Always here
You and me
I will be here

I Would Hurt A Fly

( Doug Martsch / Cover )

I can't get that sound you make out of my head
I can't even figure out what's making it
No one else around even seems to be noticing
It's only small enough for me

I can't get that sound you make out of my head
I can't even figure out what's making it
It feels like fingernails across the moon
Or do you rub your wings together

There's a mean bone in my body
It's connected to the problems that I won't take for an answer
No I won't take that from you
Because I'd hurt a fly

I can't get that sound you make out of my head
I can't even figure out what's making it
No one else around even seems to be noticing
It's only small enough for me

There's a mean bone in my body
It's connected to the problems that I won't take for an answer
No I won't take that from you
Because I'd hurt a fly

Let you go to sleep
Feeling bad as me
Let you go to sleep
Feeling bad

There's a mean bone in my body
It's connected to the problems that I won't take for an answer
No I won't take that from you
Because I'd hurt a fly

Another World

( Antony & The Johnsons Cover )

I need another place
Will there be peace
I need another world
This one’s nearly gone

Still have too many dreams
Never seen the light
I need another world
A place where I can go

I’m gonna miss the sea
I’m gonna miss the snow
I’m gonna miss the bees
I’ll miss the things that grow

I’m gonna miss the trees
I’m gonna miss the sun
I’ll miss the animals
I'm gonna miss you all

I need another place
Will there be peace
I need another world
This ones nearly gone

I’m gonna miss the birds
Singing all their songs
I’m gonna miss the wind
Been kissing me so long

Another world
Another world
Another world

Alfonsina y el mar

( Ariel Ramirez & Felix Luna / Cover )

Por la blanda arena que lame el mar
Su pequeña huella no vuelve más
Y un sendero solo de pena y silencio llegó
Hasta el agua profunda
Y un sendero solo de penas puras llegó
Hasta la espuma

Sabe Dios que angustia te acompañó
Qué dolores viejos calló tu voz
Para recostarte arrullada en el canto
De las caracolas marinas
La canción que canta en el fondo oscuro del mar
La caracola

Te vas Alfonsina con tu soledad
¿ Qué poemas nuevos fuiste a buscar ?
Y una voz antigua de viento y de sal
Te requiebra el alma y la está llamando
Y te vas, hacia allá como en sueños
Dormida Alfonsina, vestida de mar

Cinco sirenitas te llevarán
Por caminos de algas y de coral
Y fosforescentes caballos marinos harán
Una ronda a tu lado
Y los habitantes del agua van a jugar
Pronto a tu lado

Bájame la lámpara un poco más
Déjame que duerma, nodriza en paz
Y si llama él no le digas que estoy
Dile que Alfonsina no vuelve
Y si llama él no le digas nunca que estoy
Di que me he ido

Te vas Alfonsina con tu soledad
¿ Qué poemas nuevos fuiste a buscar ?
Y una voz antigua de viento y de sal
Te requiebra el alma
Y la está llamando
Y te vas, hacia allá como en sueños
Dormida Alfonsina, vestida de mar

All My Tears

( Julie Miller )

When I go don't cry for me
In my fathers arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I'll be whole

Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed
For my savior knows my name

It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter anywhere I lay
All my tears be washed away
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven's store
Come and drink and thirst no more

So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to him
Who will raise the dead again

It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter anywhere I lay
All my tears be washed away
All my tears be washed away

Halo

( Beyonce / feat. Linnea Olsson )

Remember those walls I built
Baby they’re tumbling down
They didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make up a sound

I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breaking
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t ever gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light

I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t forget
To pull me back to the ground again

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breaking
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t ever gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo
I can see your halo
I can feel your halo
I can see your halo

I can feel your halo
I can see your halo
I can feel your halo
I can see your halo

I can feel your halo
I can see your halo
I can feel your halo
I can see your halo

Daring To Love

You will find me there among the brave ones
The ones that I can never overcome
I want to be someone you can lay your weight upon
Someone who saves you, someone who holds on

Daring to love
Oh love
Lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, love
And come alive, alive
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, live

I can be your heroine
If someone lends a hand to hold my heart
This heavy pounding sound I am carrying
It leads me straight, it makes me fall apart
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Daring to love
Oh love
Lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, love
And come alive, alive
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, live
But most of all to be loved

I will fail to take the easy way out
I will tell the truth one more time
Even though it hurts, even though I stay in the shakes we got on
I will take us through, through the densest darkest ground

Daring to love
Oh love
Lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, love
And come alive, alive
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, live
But most of all to be loved

From Me to You

( The Beatles )

If there's anything that you want
If there's anything I can do
Just call on me and I'll send it along
With love, from me to you

I've got everything that you want
Like a heart that is oh so true
Just call on me and I'll send it along
With love, from me to you
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
I got arms that long to hold you
And keep you by my side
I got lips that long to kiss you
And keep you satisfied

If there's anything that you want
If there's anything I can do
Just call on me and I'll send it along
With love, from me to you

From me to you
From me to you
Just call on me
And I'll send it along
With love, from me to you
With love, from me to you

Tragedy

( Emmylou Harris )

Some say it's destiny
Whether triumph or tragedy
But I believe we cast our nets out on the sea
And nothing we gather comes for free

I would have paid down through the years
A price beyong rubies, beyond tears
To keep you safe with me

But your suspicion and your fear
Your vow to let nobody near
Was your trinity, such a tragedy
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
I drew the best hand you'd ever hold
Then cashed my winnings in long ago
Settled for silver how could I know
You were waiting with the gold

I could have caused your heart to yield
But I was only a disturbance in the field
Of your dreams

And I will never see you cry
You won't be with me when I die
A waste of you and me
A tragedy

We took the wrong train to kingdom come now
No more damage can be done, baby
It's just what the world don't need
It's another stinkin tragedy

That's how the story goes
Our chapter's coming to a close
We are history

But I will always think of you
Every day until my days are through
You made me believe
In tragedy
In tragedy

Ain't No Cure For Love

( Leonard Cohen )

I loved you for a long, long time
I know this love is real
It don't matter how it all went wrong
That don't change the way I feel
And I can't believe that time's
Gonna heal this wound I'm speaking of
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure for love

I'm aching for you baby
I can't pretend I'm not
I need to see you naked
In your body and your thought
I've got you like a habit
And I'll never get enough
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure for love
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
There ain't no cure for love
There ain't no cure for love
All the rocket ships are climbing through the sky
The holy books are open wide
The doctors working day and night
But they'll never ever find that cure for love
There ain't no drink no drug
There's nothing pure enough to be a cure for love

I see you in the subway
And I see you on the bus
I see you lying down with me
I see you waking up
I see your hand, I see your hair
Your bracelets and your brush
And I call to you, I call to you
But I don't call soft enough
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure for love

I walked into this empty church
I had no place else to go
When the sweetest voice I ever heard
Whispered to my soul
I don't need to be forgiven
For loving you so much
It's written in the scriptures
It's written there in blood
I even heard the angels declare it from above
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure
There ain't no cure for love

Orphan Girl

( Gillian Welch )

I am an orphan
On God's highway
But I'll share my troubles
If you go my way

Yeah I have no mother, no father
No sister, no brother
I am an orphan girl

I have had friendships
Pure and golden
But the ties of kinship
Have not known them

I have no mother, no father
No sister, no brother
I am an orphan girl

But when He calls me
I will be able
To meet my family
At God's table

I'll meet my mother, my father
My sister, my brother
No more an orphan girl
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Blessed Savior
Make me willing
Walk beside me
Until I'm with them

Be my mother, be my father
My sister, be my brother
I am an orphan girl

Be my mother, my father
My sister, my brother
I am an orphan girl

One Thing

( Amerie )

Oh, been tryin' to let it go
Trying to keep my eyes closed
Trying to keep it just like before
The times we never even thought to speak

Don't wanna tell you what it is
It felt so serious
Got me thinking just too much
I wanna set it off but

It's this one thing that got me tripping
It's this one thing that got me tripping
You did this one thing my soul may be feeling
It's this one thing you did, oh, oh

It's this one thing that caught me slipping
It's this one thing I want to admit it
It's this one thing I was so with it
It's this one thing you did
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
We don't know each other well
So why I keep thinking to myself
Memories just keep ringing bells
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Hear voices I don't wanna understand
My car keys are jingling in my hand
My high heels are clicking towards your door

It's this one thing that got me tripping
It's this one thing that got me tripping
You did this one thing my soul may be feeling
It's this one thing you did, oh, oh

It's this one thing that caught me slipping
It's this one thing I want to admit it
It's this one thing I was so with it
It's this one thing you did

Maybe I just can't believe it
It's this one thing you did
I can't deny, tired of trying
Open up the door but I keep on seeing you
I'm hoping you can keep a secret

If I Had A Ribbon Bow

( Traditional )

If I had a ribbon bow to bind my hair
If I had a fancy sash, my love would think me fair
Then he would go to Frankfurt, a-loggin' on the rise
He'd bring me back with his own hands, a very pretty prize

If I had a ribbon bow to bind my hair
If I had a fancy sash, my love think me fair
If I was a city girl, and fair with smart
Not a lad in all these parts would know my heart
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
And then I'd live in Frankfurt
Where all the lovers go
I'd lark about them settlements
A-wearing foreign clothes

It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back)

( Eurythmics )

It's alright, baby's coming back
And I don't really care where he's been
It's alright, baby's coming back
And I won't turn him around this time

I'll be your cliff
You can fall down from me
I'll be your ledge
You can lean upon me
I'll be your bridge
Your flowering tree
You can still depend on me

And I'll be the ticking of your clock
And I'll be the numbers on your watch
And I'll be your hands to stop the time
I'll even be your danger sign

It's alright, baby's coming back
And I don't really care where he's been
It's alright, baby's coming back
And I won't turn him around this time
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
And I'll be your grace, your dignity
And I'll be your night, your destiny
And I'll be your comfort and your ease
I will be your storm at seas

And I'll be your sharp intake of breath
And I'll be your work, I'll take no rest
And when the world falls to decline
I'll be yours and you'll be mine

It's alright, baby's coming back
And I don't really care where he's been

Oh Love (Piano Version)

Oh love
Right from the start
You were old love
Like we've never been parted
And you kissed me
Your hands down my side to my hips
Still shivers inside
All the breathing
From your mouth through mine
About how long
There's hunger for one more time
Lover of mine, when I'm with you
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
If you tell this tale to me
I wouldn't believe
That I'm already here
Tell this tale to me
I wouldn't believe
That I'm already here

Oh love, you covered my skin
With your eyes as they found me
I kissed you, danced in your sand
And fell into a never ending moment
And the whisper from your mouth through mine
With those words that gently filled my lungs
Lover of mine, when I'm with you
I forget how am I to being lonely
Living without you
Spend another day passing by you
Don't wanna know how it feels if I do

Tell this tale to me
I wouldn't believe
That I'm already here

Tell this tale to me
I wouldn't believe
That I'm already here

Tell me, is this real
No, I won't believe
I won't believe

No, I won't believe
No, I won't believe
No, I won't believe

The Opening

When there's so much darkness closing in
Just swirl around slowly
You'll find an opening

A light will appear like an animal between
The trees, there you'll find your
Pocket of peace
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Make a perfect circle
It's all around you
Put your mark on the map
Anywhere or nowhere

It's up to you
It's not too late
To find an opening

Trace a track until you find the end
There's a clearing in every forest
At least one for every man

The light will appear like an animal between
The trees, there you'll find your
Pocket of peace

Make a perfect circle
It's all around you
And know that everything
Lingers for you to follow through

It's up to you
It's not too late
To find an opening

Do you want to rediscover
Or do you want it all to be over
Do you want to see the meaning of this circling

It's up to you
It's not too late
To find an opening

Do you want to rediscover
Or do you want it all to be over
Do you want to see the meaning of this circling

Jóga

(Björk cover / Live at Polar Music Prize Ceremony 2010)

All these accidents
That happen
Follow the dot
Coincidence
Makes sense
Only with you
You don't have to speak
I feel

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to this

State of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
All that no one sees
You see
What's inside of me
All the nerves that hurt
You heal
Deep inside of me, oo-oohh
You don't have to speak
I feel

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me - confuse
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to this

State of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be

State of emergency
How beautiful to be

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to this

State of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be

State of emergency
How beautiful to be

Falling Down

( Thomas Hansen )

We run for the weaker soldiers
Even when they are not around
Always run for the weaker soldiers
A morning after without a sound
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
We run for the weaker soldiers
Even when they are not around
Always run for the weaker soldiers
A morning after without a sound

We been told that the leaves are falling down
We believe that the leaves are falling down
We been told that the leaves are falling down
We believe that the leaves are falling down

Stories live in seeds to believe
Slowly glued inside the eye
We will find our right for tomorrow
Settle down and reach for the sky

We been told that the leaves are falling down
We believe that the leaves are falling down
We been told that the leaves are falling down
We believe that the leaves are falling down

Allies they told someone would die
They would never die
Go inside the seed for a try
We will always, always cry

We run for the weaker soldiers
Even when they are not around
Always run for the weaker soldiers
A morning after without a sound

Virvelvind

Som en virvelvind
Som kommer å tar me med
Kommer å tar me me

Som en lavastrøm
Som kommer å drar me me
Kommer å drar me me

Ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

En varme inni oss
Den som elske livet
En flamme for livet

Kan smelte is til vann
å lyse så vi finn fram
Kan gjøre en steinmur til sand
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie

Oh, nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake

Oh, nei ingenting kan holde me tilbake
Ingenting kan stoppe me
Vi e frie
Vi e frie
Like a whirlwind
It comes
And takes me with it

Like a stream of lava
It comes
And pulls me with it

Nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free

A warmth within us
The one that loves life
A flame for life

Can melt ice into water
And shine so we find our way
And break brickwalls into sand

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free

Oh, no nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free

Oh, no nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We’re free
We’re free

Fly on the Windscreen

( Depeche Mode / feat. Vince Clarke )

Death is everywhere
There are flies on the windscreen
For a start
Reminding us
We could be torn apart
Tonight

Death is everywhere
There are lambs for the slaughter
Waiting to die
And I can sense
The hours slipping by
Tonight

Come here
Kiss me now
Come here
Kiss me now

Death is everywhere
The more I look
The more I see
The more I feel
A sense of urgency
Tonight

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

There are flies on the windscreen
There are lambs for the slaughter
There are flies on the windscreen
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here
Kiss me
Now

Humming One Of Your Songs 2013

I’m walking
I’m walking along

And I’m humming
I’m humming
One of your songs

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on and on

Everyday
I hear your song now
Everyday
It won’t go away

So I am humming
I’m humming
One of your songs
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on

I just know one small verse in the middle of it
But it makes me wanna hear it on and on and on and on and on
And on, and on, and on

Crawfish

( Elvis Presley / feat. Club Killers )

Crawfish
Well I went to the bayou just last night
There was no moon but the stars were bright
Put a big long hook on a big long pole
And I pulled Mr. Crawfish out of his hole
Crawfish, crawfish

See I got him, see the size
Stripped and cleaned before your eyes
Sweet meat look, fresh and ready to cook
Crawfish, craw, craw, crawfish

Now take Mr. Crawfish in your hand
He's gonna look good in your frying pan
If you fry him crisp or you boil him right
He'll be sweeter than sugar when you ever take a bite
Crawfish

See I got him, see the size
Stripped and cleaned before your eyes
Sweet meat look, fresh and ready to cook
Crawfish
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Crawfish
Craw, craw, crawfish
Crawfish
Crawfish

Well I went to the bayou just last night
There was no moon but the stars were bright
Put a big long hook on a big long pole
And I pulled Mr. Crawfish out of his hole
Crawfish, crawfish

Petrified Forest Road

Driving on a petrified forest road
The guy in front makes Y-turns
??? lingering carefully on this forest road
He drives smoothly down this road
And no one is there

Ooo-bee-doo-bee-da oh oh
Right down on highway 101
We just drive
Ooo-bee-doo-bee-da oh oh
Right down
Oh, we just drive

He picks from the driver seat down at me
Pushes us off the road, makes us stop
We say: Fuck off!
I see you and me in heaven
In the meantime talk radio is more scary
Than this driver will ever be
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Ooo-bee-doo-bee-da oh oh
Right down on highway 101
We just drive
Ooo-bee-doo-bee-da oh oh
Right down
Oh, we just drive

Ooo-bee-doo-bee-da oh oh
Right down on highway 101
We just drive

Ooo-bee-doo-bee-da oh oh
Right down on highway 101
We just drive...

She Belongs To Me

( Bob Dylan )

She's got everything she needs
She's an artist, she don't look back
She's got everything she needs
She's an artist, she don't look back
She can take the dark out of nighttime
And paint the daytime black

You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees
You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees
But you will wind up peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees

She never stumbles
She's got no place to fall
No, she never stumbles
She's got no place to fall
She's nobody's child
The Law can't touch her at all.

She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks
She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks
She's a hypnotist collector
You are a walking antique
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
For Halloween give her a trumpet
And for Christmas, buy her a drum

When I'm Free

Hanging

We are hanging in between
An exhale and the truth
Something in me wants to keep the air
Breathe in and stay put

Linger on and break free from gravity

You'll just float
Barely close
Right here with me
'Cause you see
I worry
I can't do without you
Oh without you
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
There's a magnetic field here
It separates you and me
It's invisible yet it pushes me away
Wen I try to move nearer

We are standing face to face
And I feel paralyzed
I wanna find the right things to say
But every line ends with goodbye

Linger on and break free from gravity

You'll just float
Barely close
Right here with me
'Cause you see
I worry
I can't do without you
Oh without you

When you let go
You'll be alright then
When you let go
You'll be relieved
When you let go
You will find peace

When you let go
You'll be alright then
When you let go
You'll be relieved
When you let go
You will find peace

You'll just float
Barely close
Right here with me
'Cause you see
I worry
I can't do without you

Black Notebook

My mind was playing on repeat
I could no longer separate what was real
From my own strong will to feel
That everything was fine

I decided to write down
My endless thoughts on paper
To try to make everything seem
A little clearer

I found a little black notebook
On top of my refrigerator
I started ripping out the pages
That I'd already used
I tore them apart
I needed a fresh start
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
And then I read some notes
I made last year in October
There they were the same phrases
I'd been repeating over and over

Let's go deeper, I wanna go deeper
I wanna be the best I can be with you
I wanna feel free yeah
I wanna be me
I wanna be the best I can be with you

Real change might take wide turns
And when you think you've moved on
You still need a little time to really come around
And the naked truth to release the mind

When I read those notes I made last year in October
I realized I'd been loosing my dream over and over

Let's go deeper, I wanna go deeper
I wanna be the best I can be with you
I wanna feel free yeah
I wanna be me
I wanna be the best I can be with you

You Lit My Fire

I I I will never forget
Oh no I will never ever
I will never ever forget

They changed our game
I want to kiss the feet of all those women
Spray my body in gold
Engrave myself with their names

Stand tall in awe
To the freedom
That they gave to us
And never ever forget
No I will never ever forget
That we are all all all in
We are all all all in debt

Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire

We take their struggle
For granted we are blinded
By this taste of power
Forsaking our sisters and brothers
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
This fight goes on
For the freedom
That we can't give up
And never ever forget
No I will never ever forget
That we are all all all in
We are all all all in debt

Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire
Nothing can hold me back
Oh you lit my fire

Directions

I see doors in every direction
I see them all wide open
As I go near they won't close on me
Won't close on me
They won't close on me

I look in every direction
Finding my own way out
As I go near they won't close on me
They won't close on me
Won't close on me

All and everything is possible
Even when the sun don't shine
'Cause I know how to walk right trough
To walk right through
How to walk right trough
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
I walk in the rain
My shoes fill up with water
With every step I get more wet
I get more wet
I get more wet

Step one step
Step two step
Step three step
Step four step

I can howl down a marching band
My voice flies above the sound
Flying over the beat of the drums
The beat of the drums
The beat of the drums

I see doors in every direction
I see them all wide open
As I go near I just walk right through
I just walk right through
I just walk right through

Step one step
Step two step
Step three step
Step four step

Step one step
Step two step
Step three step
Step four step

Shape Of A Heart

It's like I'm walking on the moon
It's all new
It's all new
It's like I'm entering a pitch black room
It's all new
It's all new
It's like a see-through thing that don't smell, don't stink
It's all new
It's all new
It's when I let the truth in, let it all begin
It's all new
It's all new

Though the shape of a heart is always the same
You can never be sure it fits your frame

It's like I'm walking on the moon
It's all new
It's all new
It's like I'm entering a pitch black room
It's all new
It's all new
It's like a see-through thing that don't smell, don't stink
It's all new
It's all new
It's when I let the truth in, let it all begin
It's all new
It's all new

Though the shape of a heart is always the same
You can never be sure it fits your frame
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Though the shape of a heart is always the same
You can never be sure it fits your frame

Miss You More

Your scent, your skin
Your hands on me
Caressed me, touched me
Like you were building a castle of sand
Held me together, you saved me

Where did it go
How did it leave
On the same plane as me
Why don't you miss me like before
'Cause every day I just miss you more

Is it amnesia
Are you in denial
Or am I out of my mind
Didn't you tell me that I was the one
Your inconsistency kills me

Where did it go
How did it leave
On the same plane as me
Why don't you miss me like before
'Cause every day I just miss you more

I thought I had it all
Everything was wonderful
But then something changed, so maybe
I misunderstood you baby
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Did this electricity
Only strike down in me
But I surely felt it, baby, tell me
Was it only me

All We Want Is Love

On and on we wait for it
We heal our wounds and move forward
All we want is love

It breathes for us, it feeds us
Even though we don't really know it
All we want is love

All we want is love
All we want is love

It's as light as butterflies
And when we miss it we fantasize
All we want is love

It wakes us up early in the morning
And helps us sleep all through the night
All we want is love

All we want is love
All we want is love

We give up our names for it
We arrange parades fighting for it
We buy castles and gold to get it
And we say it through countless songs
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
All we want is love
All we want is love

We reflect ourselves in it
To make sure that we exist
All we want is love

Still Waters

How I've been longing
Oh for this moment when
The rivers are running
All towards the same sea
For this moment when I'm free

Now I have found still waters
The silence rules the waves
I feel the wind slowing down around me
And a mirror is unveiled

How I've been longing
For this moment when
The rivers are running
All towards the same sea
For this moment when I'm free

Now that I feel my own heart beating
I can hear a different pace
My life won't wait and look back at me
I'll be the one to lead the way
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
How I've been longing
Oh for this moment when
The rivers are running
All towards the same sea
For this moment when I'm free
For this moment when I'm free
For this moment when I'm free
For this moment when I'm free
For this moment
For this moment when I'm free
For this moment
For
For this moment when I'm free

Better Than This

We are better than this
This is taking over
This is breaking us down
Oh we're better than this
Better than this

Moving in fast pace
Towards a tipping point
We must be better than this
Better than this

The signs are all around us
Solutions already there
We're all part of this same line-up
There is no one else here
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
We must be better than this
Better than this
Better than this

I can't believe that we won't
Learn from history
I can't believe that we won't
Learn from history
I can't believe that we won't
Learn from history
We won't
Learn from history

Better than this
Fate is always pending
Let's take the wheel and turn away
From that place there's no returning
We're overdue, let's leave today

We're hoping for a windfall
To live in eternal spring
Is this something we will die for
When we find out we can't win

Will we be better than this
Better than this
Better than this

We must be better than this
Better than this
We gotta be better than this

We must be better than this
Better than this
We gotta be better than this

Better than this
Better than this
Better than this
We gotta be better than this

Signing Off

I'm signing off
I'm signing off
I'm leaving my post
I'm signing off

Everything that's broken
Everything gone wrong
I am gonna carry that with me
Mend the streets with it stone by stone
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
And when the ground is firmer
And my heart is strong
I am coming back for more, you see
Fear bounce over me
I'm not backing down this time
I'm on my way, just wait

I'm signing off
I'm on my way, just wait
I'm signing off
I'm on my way, just wait

I'm signing off
I'm signing off
I'm leaving alone
I'm signing off

Even if I show you
What is weighing in my arms
You can never share this load with me
Walk this road for me
Know the whole story

I have been preserving
A truth I could have changed
Now I see the possibility
Of fear bouncing over me
Well I'm not backing down this time
I'm on my way, just wait

I'm signing off
I'm on my way, just wait
I'm signing off
I'm on my way, just wait

Let In Your Love

I open the windows now
I'm here in the sun outside
I let in your love

I'm lucky I dared this time
Imagine if I declined
To let in your love

Your words fed my melody
They blended perfectly
When I only had the notes
It was like a sigh

I almost let you go
Uncertain is this road
But when love is on the line
It's worth a try
Oh, it's worth a try
Worth a try
Worth a try

We'll meet our clouts again
But our music will drown out the rain
We're letting in love
When the stakes seem to high to win
I'll go back to the beginning
I let in your love
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Your words fed my melody
They blended perfectly
When I only had the notes
It was like a sigh

I almost let you go
Uncertain is this road
But when love is on the line
It's worth a try
Oh, it's worth a try
Worth a try
Worth a try

Hunting High And Low

(A-Ha cover)

Here I am
And within the reach of my hands
She sounds asleep
And she's sweeter now than the wildest dream
Could have seen her
And I watch her slipping away
Though I know I'll be hunting high and low

High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to

Find her again
Upon this my dreams are depending
Through the dark
I sense the pounding of her heart
Next to mine
She's the sweetest love I could find
So I guess I'll be hunting high and low

High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
High and low
High
Do you know what it means to love you
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
I'm hunting high and low
And now she's telling me she's got to go away
I'll always be hunting high and low
Hungry for you
Watch me tearing myself to pieces

Hunting high and low
High
High and low
High
High and low
High
High
High
High
High

Leave Me Breathless

I Want To Know What Love Is

(Foreigner)

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me

Always On My Mind

(Children In Need)

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I made you feel second best
I'm so sorry I was blind

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Unchained Melody

(Righteous Brothers)

Oh my love
My darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers cry, "Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me"

Oh my love
My darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Hero

(Mariah Carey)

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
That a hero lies in you

It's a long road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time you'll find the way

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
When you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
That a hero lies in you
That a hero lies in you
That a hero lies in you

Show Me Heaven

(Maria McKee)

There you go
Flashing fever
From your eyes
Hey baby, come over here
And shut them tight

I'm not denying
We're flying above it all
Hold my hand
Don't let me fall
You've such amazing grace
I've never felt this way

Oh show me heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh show me heaven, please

Here I go
I'm shaking
Just like the breeze
Hey baby, I need your hand
To steady me

I'm not denying
I'm frightened as much as you
Though I'm barely touching you
I've shivers down my spine
And it feels divine

Oh show me heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh show me heaven, please

If you know what it's like
To dream a dream
Baby, hold me tight
And let this be

Oh heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh show me heaven, please

Leave me breathless
Leave me breathless
Cover me

Leave me breathless
Leave me breathless
Cover me

Leave me breathless

Into My Arms

(Nick Cave)

I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that's true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms

But I believe in love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms

Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms, oh Lord
Into my arms

Stay

(Shakespears Sister)

If this world is wearing thin
And you're thinking of escape
I'll go anywhere with you
Just wrap me up in chains
But if you try to go alone
Don't think I'll understand

Stay with me
Stay with me

In the silence of your room
In the darkness of your dreams
You must only think of me
There can be no in between
When your pride is on the floor
I'll make you beg for more

Stay with me
Stay with me

You'd better hope and pray
That you make it safe
Back to your own world
You'd better hope and pray
That you'll wake one day in your own world
'Cause when you sleep at night
They won't hear your cries in your own world
Only time will tell if you can break the spell
Back in your own world

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

How To Disappear Completely

(Radiohead)

That there
That's not me
I go
Where I please

I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here

In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah it's gone
And I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here

By Your Side

(Sade)

You think I'd leave your side, baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that

I'll tell you you're right when you're wrong
And if only you could see into me

Oh when you're cold
I'll be there, hold you tight to me
When you're on my outside, baby, and you can't get in
I will show you, you're so much better than you know

When you're lost
You're alone and you can't get back again
I'll find you, darling, I'll bring you home

And if you want to cry
I am here to dry your eyes
And in no time you'll be fine

You think I'd leave your side, baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that

Oh when you're cold
I'll be there, hold you tight to me
Oh when you're low
I'll be there by your side, baby

Girl From The North Country

(Bob Dylan)

Well, if you're traveling in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Please, see for me if her hair hangs long
If it rolls and flows all down her breast
Please, see for me if her hair hangs long
That's the way I remember her best

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please, see if she's wearing a coat so warm
To keep her from the howling winds

I'm a-wondering if she remembers me at all
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So, if you're traveling in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

No Reason To Cry

(Tom Petty)

All I'm wanting is to see you
And to hold you once again
See the sun color your hair
See the tall grass blow in the wind

Overcome me, bitter sweetness
Put me under a magic spell
Overcome me, all my sadness
Lead me on and wish me well

There's no reason to cry
There's no reason to cry
There's no reason to cry
It's alright

So overtake me, my sweet lover
Let me kiss your honey lips
Could be the only thing that's real
Could be when you get sad your memory slips

There's no reason to cry
There's no reason to cry
There's no reason to cry
It's alright

Right In Time

(Lucinda Williams)

Not a day goes by I don't think about you
You left your mark on me, it's permanent a tattoo
Pierce the skin and the blood runs through
Oh my baby

The way you move
It's right in time
The way you move
It's right in time
It's right in time with me

I stand over the stove in the kitchen
Watch the water boil and I listen
Turn off the television
Oh my baby

The way you move
It's right in time
The way you move
It's right in time
It's right in time with me

I take off my watch and my earrings
My bracelets and everything
Lie on my back and moan at the ceiling
Oh my baby

Think about you and that long ride
I bite my nails, I get weak inside
Reach over and turn off the light
Oh my baby

The way you move
It's right in time
The way you move
It's right in time
It's right in time with me

The way you move
It's right in time
The way you move
It's right in time
It's right in time
It's right in time
It's right in time with me

Make You Feel My Love

(Bob Dylan)

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
Oh there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love

Big Yellow Taxi

(Joni Mitchell)

They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half to see 'em

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And they put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer
Put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Big in Japan

( Alphaville Cover / Myspace song )

Winters cityside
Crystal bits of snowflakes
All around my head and in the wind I had no illusions
That I'd ever find a glimps of summers heatwaves in your eyes

You did what you did to me, now it's history I see
Here's my comeback on the road again
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight
It's easy when your big in japan

When your big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan where the eastern seas so blue

Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then Ill sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan

Neon on my naked skin
Passing silhouettes of strange illuminated mannequins
Shall I stay here at the zoo
Or shall I go and change my point of view for other ugly scenes

You did what you did to me, now it's history I see
Here's my comeback on the road again
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight
It's easy when your big in japan

When your big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan where the eastern seas so blue

Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then Ill sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan
Big in Japan, big in Japan

Don't Give Up

( Kate Bush & Peter Gabriel Cover / Songs 2003-2013 LP )

In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no-one wants you when you lose

Don't give up
'Cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought that I could be affected
Thought that we'd be last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, by the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
'Cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
It's gonna be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up

Got to walk out of here
I can't take any more
Gonna stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
Whatever may go
That river's flowing
That river's flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Don't give up
'Cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not the only one
Don't give up
No reason to be ashamed
Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up now
We're proud of who you are
Don't give up
You know it's never been easy
Don't give up
'Cause I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong

Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up
Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up...

Feeling Good

( Nina Simone Cover / Songs 2003-2013 LP )

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze drifting on by
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life for me

Oh, it's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life for me
Oh, and I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom on a tree
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life for me
Oh, and I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun
You know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all having fun
You know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That is what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world for me, oh
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life for me
Oh and I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good

Half Open Door

( A Temporary Dive European Bonus Track )

When I was a little girl
And I couldn't fall asleep
My mother left the door half open
So that I could feel at ease

Then she'd wander around the house at night
Singing made up songs for me
I never felt alone or lonely
When she sang so softly

Around the corner of our house
There's some people hanging out every day
They are always worried
Chasing something they believe they need to survive
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
It's not rain or light
From my half open door in the night

When I was a little girl
And I couldn't fall asleep
My mother left the door half open
So that I could feel at ease

As she'd wander around the house at night
Singing made up songs for me
I never felt alone or lonely
When she sang so softly

Around the corner of our house
There's some people hanging out every day
They are always worried
Chasing something they believe they need to survive

It's not rain or light
From my half open door in the night

When I was young and fell ill
I always wanted this
That my mother would put her warm hands on my head
I still want this

Koop Islands Blues

( Koop Featuring Ane Brun )

Hello my love
It's getting cold on this island
I'm sad alone
I'm so sad on my own
The truth is
We were much too young
Now I'm looking for you
Or anyone like you

We said goodbye
With the smile on our faces
Now you're alone
You're so sad on your own
The truth is
We run out of time
Now you’re looking for me
Or anyone like me

Na na na na…

Hello my love
It's getting cold on this island
I'm sad alone
I'm so sad on my own
The truth is
We were much too young
Now I'm looking for you
Or anyone like you

Morning theft

( Jeff Buckley Cover / My Lover Will Go EP )

Time takes care of the wound
So I can believe
You had so much to give
You thought I couldn’t see

Gifts for boot heels to crush
Promises deceived
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

Your eyes and body brighten
And silent waters deep
Your precious daughter
In the other room, asleep

A kiss “Goodnight” from every
Stranger that I meet
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

Morning theft
Unpretender left
Ungraceful

True self is
What brought you here, to me
A place where we can accept this love
Friendship battered down by useless history
An unexamined failure

What am I still to you
Some thief who stole from you
Or, some fool drama queen
Whose chances were few

That brings us to who we need
A place where we can save
A heart that beats as both siphon and reservoir

You’re a woman, I’m a calf
You’re a window, I’m a knife
We come together
Making chance in the starlight

Meet me tomorrow night
Or any day you want
I have no right to wonder
Just how, or when

You know the meaning fits
There’s no relief in this
I miss my beautiful friend

I have to send it away
To bring her back again

Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)

( The Arcade Fire Cover / Songs 2003-2013 LP )

And if the snow buries my, my neighbourhood
And if my parents are crying
Then I'll dig a tunnel from my window to yours
Yeah I'll dig a tunnel from my window to yours

And you climb out the chimney
And meet me in the middle
The middle of the town

And since there's no one else around
We let our hair grow long
And forget all we used to know
Then our skin gets thicker
From living out in the snow

You change all the lead
Sleeping in my head
As the day grows dim
I hear you sing a golden hymn

Then we tried to name our babies
But we forgot all the names that
The names we used to know

But sometimes, we remember our bedrooms
And our parent's bedrooms
And the bedrooms of our friends
Then we think of our parents
Well whatever happened to them

You change all the lead
Sleeping in my head to gold
As the day grows dim
I hear you sing a golden hymn
The song I've been trying to sing

Purify the colours, purify my mind
Purify the colours, purify my mind
And spread the ashes of the colours
Over this heart of mine

She Belongs To Me

( A Tribute to Bob Dylan's 'Bringing It All Back Home' LP )

She's got everything she needs
She's an artist, she don't look back
She's got everything she needs
She's an artist, she don't look back
She can take the dark out of nighttime
And paint the daytime black

You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees
You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees
But you will wind up peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees

She never stumbles
She's got no place to fall
No she never stumbles
She's got no place to fall
She's nobody's child
The law can't touch her at all

She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks
She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks
She's a hypnotist collector
You are a walking antique

Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
For Halloween give her a trumpet
And for Christmas, buy her a drum

So real

( Live in Scandinavia / Jeff Buckley Cover )

Love, let me sleep tonight
On you couch
And remember the smell of the fabric
Of your simple city dress

Oh that was so real
Oh that was so real

We walked around til the moon got full like a plate
The wind blew an invocation and I fell asleep at the gate
And I never stepped on the cracks 'cause I thought i'd hurt my mother
And I couldn't awake from the nightmare that sucked me in and pulled me under
Pulled me under

Oh that was so real
Oh that was so real
Oh that was so real

The dancer

( Live in Scandinavia / PJ Harvey Cover )

He came riding fast like a phoenix out of fire flames
He came dressed in black with a cross bearing my name
He came bathed in light and the splendor and glory
I can't believe what the lord has finally sent me

He said dance for me, fanciulla gentile
He said laugh awhile, I can make your heart feel
He said fly with me, touch the face of the true God
And then cry with joy at the depth of my love

'Cause I've prayed days, I've prayed nights
For the lord just to send me home some sign
I've looked long, I've looked far
To bring peace to my black and empty heart

My love will stay 'till the river bed run dry
And my love lasts long as the sunshine blue sky
I love him longer as each damn day goes
The man is gone and heaven only knows

'Cause I've cried days, I've cried nights
For the lord just to send me home some sign
Is he near, is he far
Bring peace to my black and empty heart

 So long day, so long night
Oh Lord, be near me tonight
Is he near, is he far
Bring peace to my black and empty heart

To Make You Feel My Love

(Bob Dylan cover / Live on TV)

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
Oh there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love

True Colors

( Cindy Lauper Cover / Changing of the seasons I-Tunes Bonus Track )

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
But the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors, true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a Rainbow

Show me a smile then
Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors, true colors
True colors are beautiful
