Ever since she was a young girl, Hafdís Huld has enjoyed performing for anyone who was willing to watch. She started out putting on small circuses in her neighbor’s garage and then quickly moved on to performing with one of Iceland’s biggest performance collectives, Gus Gus. She remained with the group for four years, releasing two albums, appearing in numerous videos, and performing for audiences all over the world. In her time off from touring, she also starred in two movies and several Icelandic commercials.

Hafdís left Gus Gus in 1999 and moved to London, where she studied at the London Centre of Contemporary Music and started collaborating with writers in the city, including Jim Abiss, Pascal Gabriel, and Boo Hewerdine. She also co-wrote and sung on two songs on Machine Says Yes by electronic duo FC Kahuna. The songs, Hayling and Machine Says Yes, were a great success for the group, and Hafdis joined them on a promotional tour for the album.

Despite the success of her projects with other groups, Hafdís Huld was ready to shine on her own, and in October of 2006, she released her first solo album Dirty Paper Cup, the product of her collaborations with the writers she had been working with since she moved to London several years ago. Dirty Paper Cup received much praise in the UK and Europe, and it was played by some of the UK’s biggest radio stations, including BBC Radio 1. The album also won “Best Pop Album” at the 2007 Icelandic Music Awards.

Hafdís toured extensively in support of Dirty Paper Cup, opening for some of the biggest acts in the UK, like Paolo Nutini and Mika. She also spent a good part of a year performing at some of the biggest music festivals in Europe, including Glastonbury and Hultsfred and at South By Southwest in America.

In 2008 while on a break from performing, Hafdís sung for and appeared in a Mercedes-Benz commercial, which appeared on TVs all across Europe. She also made a guest appearance on the Tricky song Cross To Bear.

During 2009, Hafdís Huld wrote, recorded, and released Synchronised Swimmers, an album that has already gone to number two on the Icelandic music charts and garnered two number one singles, Kónguló and the title track. It was released worldwide throughout 2010 and is making its mark throughout Europe, the UK, and America.

Dirty Paper Cup

Ski Jumper

He told her he would give everything
If she just could bring him
A ski jumper

And after the next few weeks
He likes the jumper heaps
And he wants to be
A ski jumper

He's standing there tall
Wearing his jumper and all
When his heart gets small

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

His feet are cold
He says they should have told him
What it's like for
A ski jumper

He's starting to slide
And there's nowhere to hide
When you're
A ski jumper

He's standing there tall
Wearing his jumper and all
When his heart gets small

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

He's in the air so there's not much to do
But enjoy the view
For the ski jumper

And when he's back down
He says that any clown can be
A ski jumper

He's standing there tall
Wearing his jumper and all
When his heart gets small

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

A little longer
Ski Jumper

Diamonds on my belly

A guy full of holes opens the door
Sees on my face I've never been before
Only noises no soothing sounds
Decorated people tell me
It looks great on you
It's just not my thing
The receptionist has a nipple ring
In this place I'm like a boring saint
Use all my strength
Not to faint again

A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
Like the rapper girls on TV
Diamonds on my belly
A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
The only thing between you and me
Diamonds on my belly
Diamonds on my belly

The scariest guy I've ever seen
Tries to smile but he still looks mean
Tell myself it just can't be him
When I look up he invites me in
Ask him to give me something sweet
He brings back more than I need
Then suddenly everything goes black
I wake up, see the glittery track

A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
Like the rapper girls on TV
Diamonds on my belly
A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
The only thing between you and me
Diamonds on my belly
Diamonds on my belly...

My heads beats

How do I look
What do I do
Why does God make me
Run into you
Should I talk
Should I pout

My heart beats
Way too loud
And my heart beats
Way too loud

Try not to notice you look my way
All of my feelings are on display
Should I talk
Should I pout

My heart beats
Way too loud
And my heart beats
Way too loud

You're an ongoing challenge
In the story of me
Still don't know
How the ending should be

I wish that I knew now
What I knew then
Danced my way to trouble once again

My heart beats
Way too fast
And my heart beats
Way too fast

My heart beats
Way too fast
And my heart beats
Way too fast

Tomoko

She flies much faster
Shouts much louder
Looks much fresher
And eats much less than you

There's nothing you can do
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko

She doesn't gossip
Her hair still shines
Still has hope
Is never broke
Like you

There's nothing you can do
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko

But you get into all these clubs
You never dreamed of
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want
Do three thousand stupid things
But you don't get screamed at
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want

She's always nice
And gives advice
When we don't have a clue
She needs no help
From you

There's nothing you can do
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko

But you get into all these clubs
You never dreamed off
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want
Do 3000 stupid things
But you don't get screamed at
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want

She's never cold
Puts boys on hold
Has the whitest smile
And her shoes
Used to be crocodile
Tomoko
It's true
Tomoko
It's hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko
There's nothing you can do
Tomoko, Tomoko
No there's nothing you can do
Tomoko, Tomoko
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko, Tomoko
And there's nothing you can do
Tomoko, Tomoko
Yes it's hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko, Tomoko

Plastic halo

My first time for years
With minimal makeup
Waiting to hear
It's the true you

You don't even smile
You never notice
When I do things for you
When I do things for you

I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
'Cause now I know
It's the right way for you to go

Find parts of myself
That were not missing
Make up opinions as good as yours
The harder I try
The more you dislike me
I'll never be good enough
I'll never be good enough

I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
'Cause now I know
It's the right way for you to go

You'll never fly
Like proper angels in the sky
But I'd love to see you try

It's always about
How you feel
Which would be ok
If your feelings are real
If you listened to me
Perhaps you'd see
That we're better off without you
Were better off without you

I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
'Cause now I know
It's the right way for you to go
Now I know
It's the right way for you to go

Fucked up mind

Leave in an instant
I won't blame you
I guess I would hate me too
It's crazy I know
So you should go
I didn't know what else to do

Admit if you're scared
You so wanna cry
Don't understand
Just how I dared

I did the only thing
The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

Don't be so sad
It makes me feel stupid
Like I really did something bad
It wasn't hard and I didn't think
Oh how low can I sink

Admit if you're scared
You so wanna cry
Don't understand
Just how I dared

I did the only thing
The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

It's too late baby
I can't change a thing
Would you feel better
If I'd smile and sing

I did the only thing
The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

Happily ever after

You're sitting by the angel fountain
Do you want to share my blanked I ask you
Hoping for a positive answer
You smile and slowly walk towards me

As you come closer
I notice the unique colour of your eyes
A perfect blend of dark blue
And some king of yellow
But they don't really match your shirt

We could live happily
Ever after
We could live happily
Ever after

You sit down close to me enough
For me to observe that you smell like honey
And I really like honey
Not as much as vanilla though

We talk in the sun for hours
And I tell you, you listen like a girl
You smile and understand that it's a compliment
I like you

We could live happily
Ever after
We could live happily
Ever after

Before you leave you write your number
On a dirty paper cup
I walk home sunburnt in my face
Holding that paper cup next to my heart

We could live happily
Ever after
We could live happily
Ever after

Ice cream is nice

He's a big blue monster
From a cartoon script
He could have guns
Shoot bang from the hip
His ammunition is not real
There's nothing to fear
There's nothing to fear

I've got it all figured out
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not

Maybe the monster
Needs a green chickadee
I want him to want her
And stop wanting me
They could be lovers
And just let me be
Just let me be

'Cause I've got it all figured out
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not

He won't go looking
He's keeping on scaring
They meet by a chance
The kind that is a setup
Find romance in a blue green getup

I've got it all figured out
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not

Ice cream is nice
Ice cream is nice
Ice cream is nice

Celebration

Someday I'll find myself
In a vacuum with you
And I'll unwind and stay behind your shoulder
And I'll unwind and stay behind your shoulder

Celebration, celebration
Celebration, celebration

My breath will warm you
I'll soothe you with my touch
And you shed a tear and I'll be near
To dry you
And you shed a tear and I'll be near
To dry you

Celebration, celebration
Celebration, celebration

How easily we loose the others
Fade into our world
And manipulate and celebrate our world
And manipulate and celebrate our world

Celebration, celebration
Celebration, celebration

Hometown Hero

We stand in a pack staring
Like younger girls do
They all look apple cheeked
I’m sure I do too

It's way past midnight
Sweat makes hair stick
To the back of my neck
This excites me

He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero

I must be one of God's
Big time favourites
Must have done something right
To deserve all this

We've gone obsessive
And his second hand Honda
Is the centre of my world
I am envied by senior girls

He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero...

How good it feels to walk here
Holding hands
I'd like you even more
If you were in a band

He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero...

Younger longer

You're the star of my dream
My personal sunbeam
My heart is your home
I'm never alone

Sometimes I'm in the dream too
Just looking at you
We shout and we play
We're finding our way

We're not in a hurry
Let's take a little time
We'll just stay younger
A little longer

How amazing I feel
Can you be for real
I'm just smiling at you
You make it all new

We lie side by side
I know this is right
It just feels so true
To be here with you

We're not in a hurry
Let's take a little time
We'll just stay younger
A little longer

A collection of moment's
Going to extremes
I didn't know that sometimes living
Is better than the dream

We're not in a hurry
Let's take a little time
We'll just stay younger
A little longer...

Who loves the sun

( Lou Reed )

Who loves the sun
Who cares that it makes plants grow
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart

Who loves the wind
Who cares that it makes breezes
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart

La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, not everyone

Who loves the rain
Who cares that it makes flowers
Who cares that it makes showers
Since you broke my heart

Who loves the sun
Who cares that it is shining
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart

La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, not everyone
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun

La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, not just anyone
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun

Sumri Hallar

( Icelandic Folk Song )

Sumri Hallar hausta fer
Heyri snjallir ýtar
Hafa fjallahnjúkarnir
Húfur mjalla hvítar

Girnast allar elfur skjól
Undir mjallar þaki
Þorir varla að sýna sól
sig að fjallabaki

Verður svalt pví veðri er bryett
Vina eins og geðið
Þar sem allt var áður heitt
Er nú kalt og freði

Action Man

I think he lives across the hall
And I don't know him at all
But I have a plan
In it he's the action man
He shifts across the street
I can't see his feet
He can save me anytime
From this little life of mine

I'm wishing I'm wishing I' wishing
Away by my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without the action man

He will rocket and skydive
In order to survive
Catch him if you can
He's the action man
Never needs a second chance
Brave with big strong hands
Makes everything OK
Always knows just what to say
What to say

I'm wishing I'm wishing I' wishing
Away by my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without the action man

We'll have a moment in slow motion
And I re-play in my head all the clever
Things I could have said

Wishing I'm wishing I' wishing away
By my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without

Wishing I'm wishing I' wishing away
By my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without my action man
Live without my action man
Live without my action man
Action man

Oldest Friend

Over noodles from yesterday
I'm attempting some kind of a talk
Not that it matters anyway
It's a lonely road you walk
Life size cut-out in the living room
Of a woman that should be cold
I think it's safe for me to assume
That you need to be told

Not sure what I'm doing here
But you're my oldest friend
Things were so much easier at school
This grown up world is tricky
I'm holding out my hand
It's unwritten but it's the rule

The green clock on the table
Tells me you should be dressed by now
You might feel slightly unable
But you'll get back up somehow
Were it the other way around
I know you'd sit in the dark with me
Until the courage could be found
To get on with plan B

Not sure what I'm doing here
But you're my oldest friend
Things were so much easier at school
This grown up world is tricky
I'm holding out my hand
It's unwritten but it's the rule

There's a storm in the cup of coffee
I'm about to drink
In it you are treading water
Trying not to sink

Not sure what I'm doing here
But you're my oldest friend
Things were so much easier at school
This grown up world is tricky
I'm holding out my hand
It's unwritten but it's the rule
It's unwritten but it's the rule

Kónguló

He'd rather swing from a cable
Than sit by the table and eat cake
He's half way up before you're even awake
He's got style and still they dial the police
Just wait he'll come down in one piece

He's said before there's a risk I know
Feeling almost dead is a part of the show

They call him Kónguló
You never see him in an elevator
It moves to slow see you later
He'll see you later
Let's hope the winds don't blow
Watch out here comes the Kónguló

Afraid of heights when it comes to flight of stairs
But when he starts to moan nobody cares
No safety line he takes his time up there
Stops for coffee and the rest of us just stare

He's said before there's a risk I know
Feeling almost dead is a part of the show

They call him Kónguló
You never see him in an elevator
It moves to slow see you later
He'll see you later
Please don't make it snow
Watch out here comes the Kónguló

It made us all even keener
When you hitched a ride
With a window cleaner
Human Kónguló are rare
Now he's on TV talking about his hair

They call him Kónguló
You never see him in an elevator
It moves to slow see you later
He'll see you later
Let's hope the winds don't blow
Watch out here comes the Kónguló

Watch out here comes the Kónguló
Watch out here comes the Kónguló

One of those things

When you're angry
And you're walking away
Waiting for them to stop you
But they don't

Then it's ok
To wait for a while
Before you go back there again
With a smile
It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

If you're hurting
Needing a tear
That is the time when they just don't
Seem to fall

It gets better
You give up the wait
And they come streaming down your face
When it's too late
It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

If I had the answers to all my questions
There wouldn't be anywhere to go from here
If I had the answers to all my questions
There wouldn't be anywhere
There wouldn't be anywhere
To go from here

When you're happy
And you just don't know why
Don't waste precious time
Don't even try

If you're dancing
And nobody's there
Enjoy the fact that you don't
Even care

It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

If I had the answers to all my questions
There wouldn't be anywhere
There wouldn't be anywhere
There wouldn't be anywhere
To go from here

It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

Boys and Perfume

Nothing makes sense in the mornings anyway
So feelings are back in demand from today
Close my eyes and hope for a better one
'Cause life goes on

Boys and perfume from a pound store
Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
And I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like the girl who's got it all, got it all

Misery feels so out of place
Moment's happiness staring you in the face
Can't find love, then lust will do
I'm playing with you, I'm playing

Boys and perfume from a pound store
Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
And I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like the girl who's got it all

Nothing like my boy needs to be
It all happened so soon
They can't tell me what works for me
Let's have Christmas in June
Christmas in June

Boys and perfume from a pound store
Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
And I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like, I feel like I've got it all

Synchronised swimmers

Like synchronised swimmers
In an ocean of sounds
We're only beginners
Still looking around
It's a little bit deafening
How my inner voice is shouting out

What a lovely mess
Through the days we walk
There's liberating loneliness
In how you never talk
It's a little bit deafening
How my inner voice is shouting out

They'll come around
Just leave you be
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me

Maybe we're different
Different from who
They so wanna tell us
When they think we should do
It's a little bit deafening
How my inner voice is shouting out

They'll come around
Just leave you be
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me
Shouting out

It's a little bit deafening
When my inner voice is shouting out
It's a little bit deafening
It's a little bit deafening
It's a little bit deafening
When my inner voice is shouting out

Shouting out
We're synchronised swimmers
Shouting out

Daisy

I don't want to smile
You can't make me
I've been dumped for a girl called Daisy
And it hurts
I picture her eating apples
All glowing happy and healthy
Girl next door

My blue bikini's faded
And I don't even care
I think she's over rated
With really stupid hair

I think the sun is wasted on me
I think the sun is wasted on me
I've taken a vow of misery
That's why the sun is wasted on me

I wear my purple dress
And walk like I mean business and I do
She sounds like a greeting card phrase
Little Miss Daisy at the door

Not the best beginning for my fantasy catfight
I've painted on a smile
But I'll be back tomorrow night

I think the sun is wasted on me
I think the sun is wasted on me
I've taken a vow of misery
That's why the sun is wasted on me

I think the sun is shining on me
I think the sun is shining on me
I've broken the vow of misery
That's why the sun is shining on me
Shining on me, shining

Time of my life

Orange car people sit in trees
Hard to digest all the memories
Fell off a bike the blood still fresh
Focus on saving my party dress

I'm in bed it's after dark
Still hear them playing in the park
Run around and laugh out loud
That is it I'm sneaking out

Waiting for things to run around
Summer should have a different sound
Sad situations too much of a wait
The time of my life is starting late

With mum in the early morning rush
People watching the on the bus
Day after day always the same
And they don't even know my name

Waiting for the things to run around
Summer should have a different sound
Sad situations too much of a wait
The time of my life is starting late

Dreams of impossible happiness
Sugar coated truth
I need to wake up
And shake off my youth

The time of my life is starting late
The time of my life is starting late
The time of my life is starting late
The time of my life is starting late

Homemade lemonade

A girl in a nylon apron serves me cinnamon toast
On a plate with a picture of a cat
The man on the next table pretends to read the paper
We all know he's asleep under his hat

Look out on the street and I
See a lady feeding birds too fat to fly

Everything is basic in a town like this
You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
Just like Dolly I will get away

Goodbye to homemade lemonade

The girl with the apron talks way too loud on the phone
About a boy she wants to snog
They still have that sign up
But someone has decided that
Patch doesn't count as a dog

Look out on the street and I
See a lady feeding birds too fat to fly

Everything is basic in a town like this
You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
Just like Dolly I will get away

Goodbye to homemade lemonade

Everything is basic in a town like this
You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
Just like Dolly I will get away

Goodbye to homemade lemonade

I Almost Know A Criminal

Flying high as a kite
With proper starts there in the night
Just when she's starting to shine
Gets tangled on a power line

From looking at her face
She's the nicest person in this place
They clearly don't know
She's putting on a little snow

And she tries so hard to prove
She's got nothing to prove
Every little fall is a signature move
She's made a deal with the devil
You can't take those back
She will always be
The prettiest insomniac around here

I almost know a criminal

Pushes them out of her head
Thoughts when she's alone in bed
She'll get away with it
Looks nothing like her photo fit

And she tries so hard to prove
She's got nothing to prove
Every little fall is a signature move
She's made a deal with the devil
You can't take those back
She will always be
The prettiest insomniac around here

Fear eats my sanity
I say I like her dress
This time she doesn't shout at me
We must be making progress

Tries so hard to prove
She's got nothing to prove
Every little fall is a signature move
She's made a deal with the devil
You can't take those back
She will always be
The prettiest insomniac around here

I almost know a criminal
I almost know a criminal
I almost know a criminal

Robot Robot

I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
I've got everything I need
Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
And some tin foil on his feet

We'll go for walks
And feed the ducks with bread
He scares them off
With the lasers on his head
Remote control
Needs no compromise
The look of love
In this bright red eyes

I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
I've got everything I need
Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
And some tin foil on his feet

He doesn't breathe
And never needs to sleep
His hardware heart
Never skips a beat

I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
I've got everything I need
Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
And some tin foil on his feet

Vampires

We live in a house with a blue door
When we're going out, they're coming home
And if sometimes all day, the curtains are drawn
It's just that we'd rather be left alone

They think we're vampires
That could be cool
But we're not vampires

We're just me and you
Here in the dark
Me and you
And our little spark
They think we're vampires

Inside there's love and there's laughter
Our adventures they'll never know
It's easy to think of darkness
When the light is just not unsure

They think we're vampires
Don't mean to be cruel
But we're not vampires

We're just me and you
Here in the dark
Me and you
And our little spark

Maybe they just don't know
How it feels to hide away
We've made a world just for two
There is no night, there is no day

They think we're vampires
And that could be cool
But we're not vampires

We're just me and you
Here in the dark
Me and you
And our little spark

They think we're vampires
Don't mean to be cruel
But we're not vampires

We're just me and you
We're just me and you
We're just me and you

Winter sun

Somehow it hurts to be happy
In your head
I see your seasonal sadness setting in
So much unsaid

Somehow it hurts to be happy
In your head

Learn to let it go

I tell you things will better
Just wait and see

You shake your head in disbelief
And whisper not for me

Learn to let it go
Learn to let it go

As the days become longer
Glimpse of winter sun
I see you smile
Spring has begun

Learn to let it go
Learn to let it go
Learn to let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Home

Sunrise

You warm me up when the world gets cold
With words that don't get old
When nothing's being said
They echo in my head

Moments hidden in routine
Nicer than they seem
When you look at me
With eyes blue as the sea
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you're around
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you're around

In my own way I always knew
I belonged with you
Ready for the memories
Of what was yet to be

Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you're around
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you're around

Your silhouette against the sun
Burnt into my memory
I knew you'd always be the one
Walking next to me

Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you're around
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you're around

Queen Bee

Our flag is his coat
As he marches
Down the middle of the road
We slowly walk behind him
As we try to understand this game
Towards the sun
This fight has only just begun
There ain’t many things
He wouldn’t do for this place
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Somewhere in between the trees
Where the grass is green
Lives a man with his queen
Somewhere in between the trees
In a world that no one sees
He’s growing his own army of bees

Moving too fast
For the magic to last
On his watch the world
Moves a different pace
We all have space
His anchor went down
Kept his boots on the ground
Unaffected by the race taking place
All around

Somewhere in between the trees
Where the grass is green
Lives a man with his queen
Somewhere in between the trees
In a world that no one sees
He’s growing his own army of bees

He came from far away
Outside everyday
And his rooster thinks it’s morning all the time
Tobacco in the air
Whenever he is near
And I’m not sure if the dog is his or mine

Somewhere in between the trees
Where the grass is green
Lives a man with his queen
Somewhere in between the trees
In a world that no one sees
He’s growing his own army of bees

Lucky

In a house by the bend in the road
Lives such a lucky boy
He loves to let it show
No matter heads or tales
Seems like the wind
Is always in his sails

He’s got a four-leaved clover
Tattooed on his arm
I guess someone like him
Doesn’t really need a lucky charm

They say it can’t be true
It never happens here
Like it does with you
Hey maybe you could share
Some of this with me ooh
And I could be lucky
I could be lucky
Jimmy just like you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Many think they know
He´s made the devils deal
And none of this is real
When he rolls the dice
You can see by his grin
He knows he’s gonna win

He’s got a four-leaved clover
Tattooed on his arm
I guess someone like him
Doesn’t really need a lucky charm

They say it can’t be true
It never happens here
Like it does with you
Hey maybe you could share
Some of this with me oh
And I could be lucky
I could be lucky
Jimmy just like you

Oh, I guess you were born under a lucky star
Oh, that can only ever
Only ever take you so far

Hey maybe you could share
Some of this with me oh
And I could be lucky
I could be lucky
Jimmy just like you

Home

They talk and smile but I can’t hear
I nod along just in case
In my head I’m nowhere near
I’m in a better place
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I feel small I hide a tear
Followed by this cloud
I know I need to stay here
Sad and lonely in this crowd

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home, I wanna go home

Normal seems so nice
When no one knows you
I miss the calmness in your eyes
Here everything’s too new

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home, I wanna go home

Mountains and lakes on the way
Are hours and minutes to me
The sky is a paler grey
As I move closer to where I wanna be
Closer to where I wanna be

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home
I wanna go home

Wolf

He ran up the path with blood on his hands
And a fear I'd never seen
He stops for a breath and a backwards glance
What could this have been

Wolves, wolves don't howl at my door
I don't want you here anymore
Wolves, wolves don't howl at my door

I saw their master and he did not care
Send me on my way
They're running wild out here
Still we choose to stay

Wolves, wolves don't howl at my door
I don't want you here anymore
Wolves, wolves don't howl at my door
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We don't go back to that neck of the woods
Try to stay off that track
Bow my head and pull up the hood
Whenever I must go back

Wolves, wolves don't howl at my door
I don't want you here anymore
Wolves, wolves don't howl at my door

Treasures

If I only had tomorrow
Today I’d look for you
If I only had tomorrow
Yes that’s what I would do

And I’d hold you closer than I ever have before
Like I told you I have never wished for more
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If I only had tomorrow
I’d make you understand
If I only had tomorrow
I would hold on to your hand

I would show you all the things you wanted to see
And I know you’d save some little treasures just for me

When they turn out the lights for the day
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe
And if I ever have lost my way
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe

If I only had a moment
I wouldn’t see the clouds
If I only had a moment
I would speak of love out loud

And I’d tell you all the things I should have said before
Then I’d tell you once again just to be sure

When they turn out the lights for the day
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe
And if I ever have lost my way
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe

I will miss you more than words ever can explain
The way you kissed me used to work to take away the pain

With my eyes closed sometimes I can almost feel you here
When the wind blows I hear your softest whisper in my ear

Empty Eyes

Scared and I’m cold
Drenched in the lies
You told
With your empty eyes

You’ve got empty eyes, empty eyes

I’m happy I’m angry I laugh then I shout
I’m learning how to cope
Melted the hurt from the inside and out
Left standing in a puddle of hope

Don’t come up here for me
I took what’s left of us and I threw it to the sea
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tired and I’m sad thinking back to days we had
Before you lost your way

I’m happy I’m angry I laugh then I shout
I’m learning how to cope
Melted the hurt from the inside and out
Left standing in a puddle of hope

Don’t come up here for me
I took what’s left of us and I threw it to the sea

You’ve got empty eyes, empty eyes

Little Light

Hush falls over the night
You won’t find me sleeping
There’s a little light
In my heart for safekeeping

Cold feet on the floor
All feels so exciting
Creaking of the door
Right where I was hiding
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I did what I did and I saw what I saw
Remember the feel and the scent and so much more
So much more

Laughter fills the hall
Ticking clock beside me
Right behind that door
Is the place where I should be

I did what I did and I saw what I saw
Remember the feel and the scent and so much more
So much more

I did what I did and I saw what I saw
Remember the feel and the scent and so much more
So much more
Remember it all

Pop Song

People often ask me
Why I don’t write a song
About the nights without you
Being cold and long

How I loose track of time
Just looking in your eyes
Gazing at the stars
Telling pretty lies

I can put it in a pop song if you like
But what I feel about you doesn’t rhyme
I’d spell it out with roses at your feet
Is that really something that we need

Should I call you baby
When you’re feeling down
Waiting by the phone
When you’re not around

I can tell the whole world what I know
Make everybody see
But it wouldn’t change a thing
For you and me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I can put it in a pop song if you like
But what I feel about you doesn’t rhyme
I’d spell it out with roses at your feet
Is that really something that we need

Never Needed You

The air feels heavy I can’t breath in here
A long long time ago liked having you near me
But now I’m big and sometimes even strong
I’m strong enough to see that you were wrong
I never needed you, needed you with me

The echo of your voice still in my head
I try my best forgetting what you said
I’ve heard so many truer things since then
From braver and better men
I never needed you, needed you with me

It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
These shoulders aren’t strong enough for two
It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
So many things I wish I could undo
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You had this power everyone could see
They didn’t know you stole it all from me
I’ve seen you try to get by on your own
Haunted by the chances you have blown
‘Cause you needed me needed me with you

It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
These shoulders aren’t strong enough for two
It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
So many things I wish I could undo

I Miss The Rain

I miss the rain
I miss the rain
So I stay indoors all day
I miss the rain, I miss the rain
The skies are blue there's no reason
To complain
But all the same
I miss the rain

We've had seven days of summer
I've been counting
It's the kind of weather nobody
Could hate
Everywhere around me people smiling
I'm the only one who's looking for
The shade
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I should be happy I should be happy
I should be happy I should be happy

But I miss the rain
I miss the rain
So I stay indoors all day
I miss the rain, I miss the rain
The skies are blue there's no reason
To complain
But all the same
I miss the rain

Where did you go
There are no cloud's above me
I squint my eyes the world just seems
Too bright

I should be happy I should be happy
I should be happy I should be happy

But I miss the rain
I miss the rain
So I stay indoors all day
I miss the rain, I miss the rain
The skies are blue there's no reason
To complain

But all the same

Wash my sins away
