LYRICS

A SILENT JOURNEY

Once I met a wise man in the corridors of loneliness
Where your humble living makes you hurt like hell
These days have frightened me so much
That I was unable to touch
The inner meaning of my time on earth
He said:
“Son, you couldn’t do it by yourself.
You’re gonna need those friends to fight the plan.
Happiness is not easeful!
Hear the thought of your new school!
And if you only had to remember a single word:LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Only LOVE can fight the devil’s plan
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Only LOVE will make you a better man”Then I continued to walk to the terminus of hopeless folks
They were tearing pages from the Book of LOVE
The only person that I saw,
On the fringe of this distressing row
Was a daring girl picking up the holy leaves
She said:
“You have to know that your troubles last,
Until you’ve built a graveyard for your past.
Future is not written yet.
You have a whole life to invent.
And don’t think you could rescue me, I’m just your vision of reality.”LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Only LOVE can fight the devil’s plan
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Only LOVE will make you a better manFinally I felt neglected, I raised my head,
I saw a kid rising from the farthest part of me
He said:
“I can’t be born again, just because I wasn’t dead
Like all the things that used to live in you.
I’m the Hope when everybody’s left.
I’m the Confidence when no one trusts in you.
Don’t give up on your deepest dreams. Let them shine like some sunbeams.
And with every line of every poem, you may be invincible.”

ABSOLUTE BELIEVER

Did you see the fragility of our world, dear?
I can almost forget it since I’m in your life
You didn’t seem to need anyone when I met you
It didn’t seem you wanted to be somebody’s wifeBut all the rivers could dry up
And the sun might not rise anymore
I would still be a beautiful believerHave you ever noticed the surety in our kisses?
It could be dangerous to only lean on it
The clarity of Truth will never replaced
What remains unsaid can worry your spiritMay the lake of promises always burst and
May we always keep a deep thirst
For each other like beautiful believersBelievers, believers, believers, believers

What if the indifference takes hold of us? (Believers)
What if the optimists have lied? (Believers)
What if our binding souls are getting lost? (Believers)
What if the glimmer of your eyes were to die? (Believers)

ANGEL OF ICE

38 days before Christmas
She hopes that she could see the snow
Her old memory remains
While the weatherman doesn’t know
If she had known it before
She would be gone to the North Pole
And as sure as she’s far from home
She would be under the snowfallsAngel of ice
Sweet icy drop
She’s an angel of iceMaybe it’s because she’s from Sweden
And that she feels uprooted
So she asks for a small present
To help her on that birthday
Leaving your home is never easy
You can’t say goodbye to where you belong
Rebuild a life, a new family
You’ll never be alone, no moreAngel of ice
Sweet icy drop
She’s an angel of iceAnd one day, if you’re lost just think of me
And LOVE we shared at the height of summer
Oh LOVE we shared at the height of summer

I never meant to hurt your heart
My sweet, sweet angel of ice

CARRY ON

Come on
Get up
You must go onAnd now,
You feel
So crushedThe end is not near,
The curfew’s goneHey Pain, move over !
And leave Love aloneNow that the world seems much heavier then x 2

Disaster is not what you’ve known
Wait your turn and carry on

Take a breath
Take a long breath
And walk in front

Don’t fall back
On your easiest painful days

Find yourself
A life that matters

Be alive
Stay strong
And carry on

Now that the world seems much heavier then x 2

(Welcome to the real world)

DESPERATION LAND

The fuck you spread puts you in a mess
Each word you say is a lamb to bless
You build my shell with venom and distress
I could not save you from your lonelinessWell I drove you to the end
Where the flowers grow into pain
And the mud replaces rain
Just like a desperation land
Like a desperation landYour crap bounces off me x2The fuck you spread puts you in a mess
Each word you say is a lamb to bless
Meaningful nightmares, flashes of consciousness
I take my leave to you and your darknessWell I drove you to the end
Where possession is in vain
And where friends forget your name
Just like a desperation land
Like a desperation land

Your crap bounces off me x2

EVERLASTING CHILD

Being is a flame that is hard to tame
Sometimes I let it go but the questions grow
How not to confuse necessity and desire?
Will I always live with Pride and Anger?The more I am growing, the less I’m hoping
Oh tell me if that fear will one day disappear
I think that I’ve tasted a part of the answer
And all that I know doesn’t make me a knowerHow can I see things with the eyes of unconcern?
I don’t know, no I don’t know
Will I find innocence without being burnt?
I do not dare to ask you for a solution,
Because I need to draw myself a conclusion.If I keep faltering, I’ll surrender
Then I must master my dark side
So that he comes back as a glorious saviour
My own everlasting child

EVERYTHING SHE DOES IS BLESSING

Sister Sue is the right one
She’s strong enough to carry the world on her shouldersYou met her smile and then she took away
Your sorrow, your pain and your doubts
And she shows you the narrow gate that makes you happy
And unhappy sometimes but that’s o.k.On the way, surrounded by your own darkness
You foresee a faint light,
Burning, burning wisely like an endless faith
In spite of all the lost expectationsAnd Sister Sue, here’s all I do
I sing my song but don’t get me wrong
Yes Sister Sue, here’s what I do
I sing my song but there’s something wrongEvery little thing she does
And every kind of smile she gives
Everything she does is blessing
When all the people are passing by
She takes time to say more than “Hi”
You think you’ll never find a way to thank her
And if I stumble, she steps in
She bears my cross and unties my wings
Everything she does is blessing

FOR SALVATION

I’m gonna get by and be up and about soon
Like Johnny Cash did it for June
I’m gonna fly high to give you the moon
And even write you a thousand tunesThen I will try for the rest of my life
To keep the keys to Paradise
Yes, I will try for the rest of my life
To fill with LOVE my precious timeEvery day I chose between night and day
Every day I tried to do it my own way
But I took a wrong road paving with wanderings
Where my dearest dreams are resting patientlyI’m gonna get by and be up and about soon
Like Johnny Cash did it for June
I’m gonna fly high to give you the moon
And even write you a thousand tunesThen I will try for the rest of my life
To keep my light safe from the wind
Yes, I will try for the rest of my life
Sowing and letting die the seed

Whatever my direction, my horse followed desire
And whatever the danger, I often played with fire
But there was you, my beautiful loved-one
With golden curls and sea eyes
You sent my weaknesses far away
Far away as we come up to the day
Far away as we come up, as we come up to the day

KIND-HEARTED MOTHER

How can we return one day all that you gave us?
I’m often wondering how much measures your heart?
Tell me if it is innate or can you teach me?
Perhaps you have already did and I was too dreamy to learnA thousand tender kisses on our burning foreheads
A thousand compliments and cares that increased our standings
And I’m sure some failures are as good as success
So don’t be so harsh to yourselfKind-hearted mother
May your eyes keep watching over us
For a long time

LIFE AS A RACE

The rhythm of your life is just getting on your nerves
Sit by me a second, have the rest you deserve
You should drive safely as long as time is your enemyYou say you haven’t long to live and there’s no time to lose
You think you can roll with the punches without being bruised
You should run carefully and only fight, fight to be freeYour fingers burn and you can’t return
But it’s not too late to change the fate
If you live life as as a race
If you can stand the pace
You risk knowing the finish line before you even tryDon’t listen to my ramblings; I’m not better than you are
I worry so much that I think I am your guiding star
We should walk slowly because time is not our enemyOur fingers burn and we can’t return
But it’s not too late to change the fate
If we live life as a race
If we can stand the pace
We risk knowing the finish line before we even try
We’re gonna know the end before the beginning

MY 70’s GIRL

Whispering comforting words to your ear
I feel your voice so close
and I can’t realize you’re on the phone, looking for clue
to understand why you’re so blue when you’re aloneReminding you letters and sweet memories
Tell you how the past was defeated
You were so young and innocent
I fell for you so easily
My 70’s girlYes I’m the one with the stick of glue
In search of any clue for you
To put the pieces of your grief back togetherThose boys you met and those drugs you took
You thought you were unconventional
I was on the other side for a long time
Too misanthropist to be dependentWhispering comforting words to your ear
I feel your voice so close
and I can’t realize we bruise our time,
looking for clue to understand why you’re so blue
My 70’s girl

Yes I’m the one with the stick of glue
In search of any clue for you
To put the pieces of your grief back together

This is a story of the 21st century
My 70’s Girl

ONE SLEEPLESS NIGHT

You collapse drowsy
I pull you up to me
Our fingers are grazing
It seems you want meDawn’s taking me away from…
From you
From youLying on the sofa, we cannot feel time passing
It seems no word will explain it
Norway voices are surrounding us
And the next bus will lead me far from youIt’s the way I feel one sleepless night
With you
With you

OVER IN AMERICA

Over in America
All my problems in the river
Over in America
I’m longing to find herJane Street is void of people and the weather has never been like this since I’m in New York.
It’s so hot that I cannot sweat and breathing is hard.
I feel like somebody tramples on my rib cage but I’m about to be relieved from my obsessions.
All these things written in my diary, it is weird to write only the bad things as if the book was my therapist.
A bit of ink, a bit of paper and you could empty your soul.
But I swear it’s not enough, it’s not enough.Over in America
All my problems in the river
Over in America
I’m longing to find herThis moment is like a bend, a very important bend full of evidence and comprehension.
I understand everything, why I’m here and what I should do to stop running away from myself.
The bad sides would disappear in the river, and the river joins the sea, and the sea would be the place where I settle my troubles, my final destination without any way-out.
But I swear that this is not enough. No, this is not enough.In the sea again
I’m gonna find us
In the sea again
I’m gonna save us
In the sea again
I’m gonna fight for us
In the sea again
I’m gonna drown us

REFUGEE

In your smile
I found a thing to ease me
In your eyes
I found a place I can trustWhere it all began x 2In your arms
I found a way to be a refugee
In your arms
I found a church to believe in
A thrill to savourWhere it all began x 2Life has never been as beautiful as in this dream I had
Where I married you under a chestnut tree
And your face was unreal
But I knew I was just here to love you

Time will tell me if love is a truth
Time will tell me if love is a truth…
…in the end

SARAH

She’s a thorn stuck in my heart
A butterfly in my stomach
She’s the race into my veins
She’s the air inside my breathShe’s the mess inside my brain
She’s the quiet in my head
She’s the comfort when I’m weary
She’s the soundness when I’m shakyI lean on you
Angel, angel
I lean on you
Sarah, Sarah

THE DEFEATS THAT WERE TURNING INTO GOLD

Tom is always sick about everything,
Maybe it’s in his heart or maybe it’s in his head.
He often prays for people like him,
In the hospitals where it feels so grim,
He tries to put the light of hope within.
His parents, they don’t understand
Why he gives his time for the frail-ones,
Instead of taking care of him.
Tom knows he does belong here,
But at home things are really heavy
That he planned to leave not to become nasty.Sweet Beth and her mother
Had an argument again about summer
That she wants to spend with her bunch of friends.
Lately Beth lost too much weight.
The bones of her spine are like teeth from a saw,
Ready to cut her skin off to get it over with.
She can’t stand her face and her reflection.
In the mirror she found this is not enough
To feel well among friends when your family life is rough.When the corners of your mind are just blocked,
And the only window of your heart overlooks nothing,
Nothing but a lonesome track.You want to get out of this tragic plight
Where you are confined, you weep to get blind
You wish you could bury that voice
Pretending you have no choice
But right after that way, there’ll be a newborn daySometimes I thought my shadow
Was a long, long way behind me
But it kept haunting me
Because I refuse to see what I needed to be

Me, I want to go where my curing lives
And where the angels hum about
The defeats that were turning into gold.

THE HOPEFUL BELLS

Brother
In face of girds
How cracked you were
You couldn’t find peace
In such a selfish worldBrother
Let’s beat the drum
Rejoin the choir
Ring the hopeful bells
A new chant has begunSister
In face of contempt
How disarmed you were
You couldn’t find rest
In a field of tormentSister
Let’s beat the drum
Rejoin the choir
Ring the hopeful bells
A new chant has begunYou came to me in the middle of the night
You needed me ‘cause you felt uptight
We blended our voices in a brilliant communion
We ceased to sing and the music went on

THE PREVIOUS TIME

A picture in the cardboard box
With names on the back
This smile is fixed for years
And my mind is fading into blackThe previous time wears me down
A chocolate in the candy box
A cigarette burn on your blouse
And my mind is fading into black

THE RELEASE

Behind this heaven
There’s a garden for us
A kind of Eden
Where we don’t need a pass
Over the seasons
Faster than time
We’ll beat back our demons
Souls and spirits tiedYour head is aching,
Stop reflecting and swallow Aspirin
Honey, please walk a few miles again
We’ll find a place sheltered from the rainStreetlight goes out, you start to shake
Enemies of the past are still awake
Dear, we feel destroyed within
God, take us to the place you’re inBehind this heaven
There’s a garden for us
A kind of Eden
Where we don’t need a pass
Over the seasons
Faster than time
We’ll beat back our demons
Souls and spirits tied

THE UNCONSCIOUS MASTER

He was a lion
With a beautiful mane
A king of high school
With a lot of useless friendsWe wanted to be him
We wanted it so bad
To shine among suns
And to melt the heart of sirensDid you forget the one you were?
‘Cause I wonder if I can learn to be another
I don’t find it’s easy
To pretend to be a different meHe was an unconscious master
Who taught me to be free
And when I look back
I see a world full of fantasyIt shows me the man I am
Betrayed the boy I was
What happened to my ideals?
Are they hiding with yours?

Please face the sun and turn your back on your shadows
Things you left undone are for tomorrow
Hey Lion
Where do your dreams stand?

If they came true then I can still be another
To shine among suns, to melt the heart of sirens
I face the light and turn my back on shadows
I know, I know that it’s not easy though

THIS IS MY XMAS SONG

You’re dragging your Christmas tree in the snow
The child that lived within me has never asked to grow
It’s the holiday season
It’s my plea, my reason
And I don’t know what the fuck I could do to be sincere and trueYou’re wearing your Christmas cap, so cheerful!
Take me to your carefree world and I’ll be trustful
It’s the holiday season
It’s my worry, my reason
And if I knew how to be, let me know if you’ll support me once againI give you this song for your favourite time
And I hope I’ll change my mind
I give you this song forever
I give you this song forever

TOO FAR TO SEE

Our bench seems empty
I engraved your initials on the birch tree
And maybe you’re too far to see
How lonesome I can beOur sweet friends, I’m among them
We build a cosy nest to support ourselves
And maybe you’re too far to see
It ain’t easy to say goodbye to theeI wander, sick and confused
Like a whale in river Thames
Holding out my hands
Trying to reach you
Will you guide me through?Oh Lord, wish me luck
And would you believe in me as I believe in thee?

UNTIL THE END OF THE ROAD

I think that I can close my eyes now
Because you’ve never wished me ill
Despite your reassuring hand
My lack of trust I can’t concealI know that I should loosen my tongue now
Because you can hear everything
From the byways of betrayal
To the red shame of disowningI’m slowly letting down
The shortcuts I’ve been told
I’ll follow you around
Until the end of the roadI feel that we must be on the look-out
To seize the sly signs of desolation
Your words of peace have sprouted inside me
Leading me to my own perfectionNow that I lost myself in your arms
My soul is yours without any reserve
And every cloud has a silver lining
Like obstacles from which we’ll never swerve

I’m slowly letting down
The shortcuts I’ve been told
I’ll follow you around
Until the end of the road

They say the longest way is the hardest
But mine takes shape as I go along

WARNING TO THE POWERFUL ORATORS

Remember a thing
Don’t give us Fake
‘Cause people are smart and they always know
That you try to fool them (try to fool them)Everyone lies
Everyone confesses
Everyone fights to know what the truth is
Don’t play with them (don’t play with them)People are confessing but none of them will forgive you
Would you say me again what is the Good and the Evil too?And I go to the beginning
