Lyrics

Thank you for stopping by here!!

On this page you can find a selection of my lyrics.  

"There is a feeling of "free fall" when I sit down to write a song.

I never know what will come out, I might have an idea about it sometimes, but I can never be sure. It feels like the song is unfolding in front of me.

Through words, feelings, melodies and images in my mind.

And often there is an element of surprise "aah now I see where it's going..."

WHAT CAN I DO BUT LOVE YOU

Come and take my hand

we have been here before

Close your eyes and trust that we will never fall,

walking feeling breathing it all

What can i do but love you

What can i do but love you

The colours of our dreams will lead us far ahead

and our past will loose it's grip on us and break

all the fear we hid away

What can i do but love you

What can i do but love you

Walking in your world i leave myself behind

let myself imbrace we're moving unified

What can i do but love you

What can i do but love you

 

 

 

IMAGE OF CLAY

Find me on the streets of fire

cover me softly, I'm only a child

burning in the same old trail

unlearn me, unlearn my pain

 

Loosen up my body

a thousand colours move over me

I can feel all the things you feel,

we are the same

caught up in this old abandoned room made of pain

and it's crucial we awake

from this dream

Soothing sounds

a line of starving tones

rocking me softly, a tremble to my bone

solid ground that crumbles to the sea

you got me, for sure you got me

Living in an image made of clay

and any moment soon it's shape will change

UNDER THE COVERS

We're like the leaves falling 

we all know that there is no way out - No

Try to delay it, it won't work

as you said there is no way out - No 

Once caught - we're falling

Done and sore from breaking walls in  

you know that and oh

How I really love your details

heartfelt, and not at all perfect,

but it's just your details

ways astray complicated

beauty

Density's fading - don't be afraid

you're here when all is done - all is

Your lover is waiting, beneath 

the burden you dearly held - you did

Under the covers, the tention is speaking

the sounds of pain - pain is

and totally tresured  - absorbed in daylight

it must retrieve - and it will

IMPOSSIBLE

 

I take this breath in honor 
You came my way
I speak these words in your hornor
You can give them back to space

I only think of love and hunger as you trace your soul down through me.
                                     

You make it impossible for me to leave

When you look at me like that

All this is impossible to believe

Now theres no turning back

They make it rain from heaven
It brings me to my knees
If only life would let me i'd        
Swim your endless seas     

 

I only think of love and hunger as I trace my soul down through you.
 

You know that we're okay  
Even when it seems we're not

Know that its okay wandering off

Cause when the heart has chosen where it wants to be 

It stays

 

WHO'S REALLY WATCHING

 

In the depth of sleep who's aware,

and when morning comes who awakens here?

Once again, forced into life

the one I call "me", the one I define as "I"

What am I? What am I?

 

Chasing the the pleasure, avoiding the pain,

seems to be coded in everything

Seeking release from the soldier of pride,

feeding him diamonds, made up by the lie

I wonder why? Wonder why?

 

How can I speak,

when no words arise here?

How can I feel,

when no feeling abide here?

How can I sing when my innermost nature is silence,

and who's really watching my world spinning?

 

I've seen love, where love had no need,

no thing to give and no way to cease

That open space in the cave of your heart

gives beyond giving and it loves beyond love

see that is love, that is love

 

tracing me back, to where I began

I will need luck to have luck at hand

Nowhere to look but the well of my soul, 

is soul even the word to describe where I turn?

If all must burn, then all must burn

 

How can I speak,

when no words arise here?

How can I feel,

when no feeling abide here?

How can I sing when my inner most nature is silence,

and who's really watching this ever changing ocean?

 

 

UNDERWORLD

Heart shaped

drunken pages down the sleeves of dreams

a heart brave enough to crawl down in the underworld

constant, innocent unaware a price she pays,

by the luck of grace one day she might leave the underworld

Crawling down, don't you care to hear the sound 

in the funny house in the funny town

Crawling down, all the drama there's around 

in the funny house in the funny town

They're all numb, before the screen the dumb gets dumber

It's primetime for the blind to lead the blind in the underworld

Twice caught in the web that causes darkness and cracks

She's lost, vage voices' trying to reach her

Crawling down, don't you care to hear the sound 

in the funny house in the funny town

Crawling down, all the drama there's around 

in the funny house in the funny town

 

Oh how to live in a fragmented frame

deep enough lies the unspoiled mirror

Crawling down, don't you care to hear the sound 

in the funny house in the funny town

Crawling down, all the drama there's around 

in the funny house in the funny town

 

 

 

NO USE

 

Ten thousand cages, beings trapped and tortured

where's the good we know we have locked inside our world

locked inside our world we're comfortably blinded

This kingdom is broken, this brain is of no use, of no use

This kingdom is broken, this brain is of no use, of no use

With our heads held high we stand in blood to our knees

behind our walls our hearts are fenced not to feel

not the feel a thing we're comfortably blinded

This kingdom is broken, this brain is of no use, of no use

This kingdom is broken, this brain is of no use, of no use

AS WE ARE

Now all there's left is understanding

and the courage to be crazy as we are

in truth there is no pain to be transcended

no need to put down your sword

 

We are empty, we are empty - as we are

We are empty, we are empty - as we are

There's nothing I can do to stop pretending

only by doing nothing I will succeed

if that's the paradox it is tremendous

if what already is, is what we seek

 

it is endless, it is endless – and so are we

only for a moment I will doubt

when I'm in the world of power / pleasure / ”you and I”

hunting for the light

bound from head to toe

from the inside – out...

Now all there's left is understanding

and the courage to be crazy as we are – cause we are

in truth there is no pain to be transended

in truth, there's no one in charge

 

cause we are empty, we are empty

as we are...

we are empty, we are empty

as we are...as we are....as we are....as we are...
