  • 1 If I Can Dream
  • 2:53| Lyrics |

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away the doubt and the fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won’t that sun appear

 

We’re lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We’re trapped in a world
That’s troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly


Deep in my heart there’s a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there’s a beckoning candle

And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true

T/M: Walter Earl Brown

  • 2 You Were Always on My Mind
  • 3:52| Lyrics |

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

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
Girl I’m sorry I was blind

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
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
To keep you satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the timeYou were always on my mind

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

T/M: Wayne Carson, Mark James, Jonny Christopher

  • 3 Crying in the Chapel
  • 2:57| Lyrics |

You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I shed were tears of joy
I know the meaning of contentment
Now I’m happy with the Lord

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where humble people go to pray
I pray the Lord that I’ll grow stronger
As I live from day to day

I searched and I searched but I couldn’t find
No way on earth to gain peace of mind

Now I’m happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
Yes, we gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the Lord

You’ll search and you’ll search but you’ll never find
No way on earth to gain peace of mind

Take your troubles to the chapel
Get down on your knees and pray
Then your burdens will be lighter
And you’ll surely find the way

 

T /M: Artie Glenn

  • 4 Three Times a Lady
  • 04:13| Lyrics |

Thanks for the times that you’ve given me
The memories are all in my mind
And now that we’ve come
to the end of our rainbow
There’s something I must say out loud

Your once, twice
three times a lady
and I love you
Your once, twice
three times a lady
and I love you.

I love you!

When we are together
the moments I cherish
With every beat of my heart
To touch you, to hold you
to feel you, to need you
There’s nothing to keep us apart

You’re once, twice
three times a lady
And I love you!
Yes, you’re once, twice
three times a lady
And I love you!

I love you!

You’re once, twice
three times a lady
And I love you!
You’re once, twice
three times a lady
And I love you!

I love you!

T /M: Lionel Richie

  • 1 Welcome to My World
  • 2:30| Lyrics |

Welcome to my world
Won’t you come on in?
Miracles, I guess
Still happen now and then

Step into my heart
Leave your cares behind
Welcome to my world
Built with you in mind

Knock and the door will open
Seek and you will find
Ask and you’ll be given
The key to this world of mine

I’ll be waiting here
With my arms unfurled
Waiting just for you
Welcome to my world

Waiting just for you
Welcome to my world

Text & Melody: Ray Winkler / John Hathcock

  • 2 The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
  • 4:06| Lyrics |

The first time ever I saw your face 
I thought the sun rose in your eyes 
And the moon and the stars
were the gifts you gave 

To the dark and the endless skies 

My love

To the dark and the endless skies 

The first time ever I kissed your mouth 
I felt the earth move in my hand 
Like a trembling heart of a captive bird 
That was there at my command my love 

That was there at my command

And the first time ever I lay with you 
I felt your heart so close to mine 
And I knew our joy would fill the earth 
And last till the end of time my love 

And it would last till the end of time
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face, your face, your face

T /M: Ewan Mccoll

  • 3 Surrender
  • 3:47| Lyrics |

When we kiss my heart’s on fire
Burning with a strange desire
And I know, each time I kiss you
That your heart’s on fire too

So, my darling, please surrender
All your love so warm and tender
Let me hold you in my arms
While the moon shines bright above

All the stars will tell the story
Of our love and all its glory
Let us take this night of magic
And make it a night of love

Won’t you please surrender to me
Your lips, your arms, your heart
Be mine forever
Be mine tonight

T /M: Doc Pomus / Mort Shuman /
Ernesto De Curtis

  • 4 Slow Down
  • 5:17| Lyrics |

In the midst of my confusion
In the time of desperate need
When I am thinking not too clearly
A gentle voice does intercede

Slow down, slow down, be still
Be still and wait, on the Spirit of the Lord
Slow down and hear His voice
And know that He is God


 

In the time of tribulation
When I’m feeling so unsure
When things are pressing in about me
Comes a gentle voice so still, so pure

Slow down, slow down, be still, my child
Be still and wait, on the Spirit of the Lord
Slow down and hear His voice
And know that He is God
And know that He is God

T /M: Chuck Girard

  • 5 The Masquerade ls Over
  • 3:48| Lyrics |

Your eyes don’t shine like they used to shine
And the thrill is gone when your lips meet mine
I’m afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

Your words don’t mean what they used to mean
They were once inspired, now they’re just routine
I’m afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

 

 

I guess I’ll have to play Pagliacci
And get myself a clown’s disguise
And learn to laugh like Pagliacci
With tears in my eyes

You look the same, you’re a lot the same
But my heart says “no, no, you’re not the same”
I’m afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

And so is love, and so is love

T /M: Herb Magidson / Allie Wrubel

  • 6 The Man I Love
  • 4:06| Lyrics |

Someday he’ll come along
The man I love
And he’ll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I’ll do my best to make him stay

He’ll look at me and smile
I’ll understand
Then in a little while
He’ll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won’t say a word

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I’m sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He’ll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I’ll never roam
Who would, would you
And so all else above
I’m dreaming of the man I love

T: Ira Gershwin  M: George Gershwin

  • 7 In My Life
  • 3:07| Lyrics |

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

 

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life, I’ll love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I’ll love you more

In my life I’ll love you more

T /M: John Lennon / Paul McCartney

  • 8 Goodbye
  • 2:15| Lyrics |

I’ll never forget you.
I’ll never forget you.
I’ll never forget how we promised one day,
to love one another forever that way.
We said we’d never say, “Goodbye.”

But that was long ago.
Now you’ve forgotten, I know.
No use to wonder why.
Let’s say farewell with a sigh.
Let love die.

 

But we’ll go on living,
Our own way of living.
So you take the high road and I’ll take the low.
It’s time that we parted,
It’s much better so.
But kiss me as you go.

Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye

T /M: Gordon Jenkins

 

  • 9 September Song
  • 3:51| Lyrics |

Oh, it’s a long, long while
from May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September

When the autumn weather
Turns leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time
For the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
September, November

 

And these few precious days
I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you

Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
September, November

And these few precious days
I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you

T /M: Maxwell Anderson / Kurt Weill

 

  • 10 After All
  • 2:44| Lyrics |

All alone surrounded by the stillness 
Thinking back on days left far behind 
Like looking through a mirror dimly 
Seeking treasures I can’t seem to find 
 
Moments stolen now appear before me 
Breaking through while listening for your call 
Your love has always been my hearts protector 
And has stayed here with me After All 

I tried to run away but your hold on me was far to strong 
The choice I had to make was so hard to find 
But I’m more settled now 
And it’s so much easier to see 
That I should choose the place and then pick the time 
 
As I sit surrounded by this stillness 
Looking back while waiting for your call 
Your love has always been my 
hearts protector and has stayed here with me after all 
Your love has always been my hearts protector and has never left me  

After all 

T /M: Bill Maxwell / Abraham Laboriel

 

 

  • 11 Born to Be Loved
  • 4:15| Lyrics |

You weren’t born to be abandoned
You weren’t born to be forsaken
You were born to be loved
You were born to be loved

You weren’t born to be mistreated
And you weren’t born to misguided
You were born to be loved
You were born to be loved

You weren’t born to be a slave
You weren’t born to be disgraced
You were born to be loved
You were born to be loved

 

 

You weren’t born, you weren’t born to be abused
You weren’t born to lose
Cause you were born to be loved
You were born to be loved

You weren’t born to suffer
And you weren’t born for nothing
Cause you were born to be loved
You were born to be loved

T /M: Lucinda Williams

....Reflections I....from 2019 is a collection of the 10 first songs, in a number of 50 songs which will be released weekly over a 1-year period. Sissel has recorded new versions of timeless tunes, which stretch from the roaring 1920´s up until the present day.

  • 1 Unchained Melody
  • 3:05| Lyrics |

Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
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 sigh
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
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

 

T: Hy Zaret
M: Alex North

  • 2 My Foolish Heart
  • 3:14| Lyrics |

The night is like a lovely tune
Beware, my foolish heart
How white the ever-constant moon
Take care, my foolish heart
There’s a line between love and fascination
That’s hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sensation
When you’re lost in the magic of a kiss

He’s lips are much too close to mine
Beware, my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start
For this time, it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart

It’s love, this time it’s love
My foolish heart

It’s love, this time it’s love
My foolish heart

 

T: Ned Washington
M: Victor Young

  • 3 For the Good Times
  • 3:40| Lyrics |

Don’t look so sad
I know it’s over
But life goes on
And this old world will keep on turning
Let’s just be glad
We had some time to spend together
There’s no need to watch the bridges
That were burning

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body
Close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops
Blowing soft across the window
And make believe you love me
One more time
For the good times

I’ll get along
You’ll find another
And I’ll be here
If you should find you ever need me
Don’t say a word about tomorrow
Or forever
There’ll be time enough for sadness
When you leave me

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body
Close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops
Blowing soft across the window
And make believe you love me
One more time

For the good times
For the good times

T/M: Kris Kristofferson

  • 4 Lord Protect My Child
  • 3:49| Lyrics |

For age, she is wise
She’s got her mother’s eyes
There’s gladness in her heart
She is young and she is wild
My only prayer is, if I can’t be there,
Lord, protect my child

As her youth now unfolds
She is centuries old
Just to see her play makes me smile
No matter what happens to me
No matter what my destiny
Lord, protect my child

The whole world is asleep
You can look at it and weep
Few things you find are worthwhile
And though I don’t ask for much
No material things to touch
Lord, protect my child

She is young and on fire
Full of hope and desire
In a world that’s been raped, and defiled
If I fall along the way
And can’t see another day
Lord, protect my child

There’ll be a time I hear tell
When all will be well
When God and man will be reconciled
But until men lose their chains
And righteousness reigns
Lord, protect my child

T/M: Bob Dylan

  • 5 Have I Told You Lately
  • 3:46| Lyrics |

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
You fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do

Oh the morning sun in all its glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter
You can make it better
Ease my troubles that’s what you do

There’s a love that’s divine
And it’s yours and it’s mine
Like the sun
At the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the One

See, have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
You fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do

You take away my sadness
Fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do

T/M: Van Morrison

  • 6 Out of Left Field
  • 3:50| Lyrics |

When least expected
Fate stumbles in
Bringing light to the darkness
Oh, what a friend
I needed someone to call my own
Suddenly, out left field
Out left field, out left field
Love came along

I was walking down a road that went nowhere
Building dreams that were all left by the wayside
And then outta the blue
Honey, I found you
You know I found you

Sugar and peaches in a paradise land
Good love and sweetness, have taken their stand
He made a mountain of love
From a little grain of sand
Suddenly, out left field
Out left field, Out left field

Love came along
Everything is alright
How sweet it is
Love came along
Out of left field
Love came along
My love came along

T/M: Dan Penn / Linden Oldham

  • 7 Who Knows Where The Time Goes
  • 3:32| Lyrics |

Across the morning sky all the birds are leaving
How can they know that it’s time to go?
Before the winter fire, we’ll still be dreaming
And then I count the time
Who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Sad deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know that it’s time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
For I do not count the time
Who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

But I’m not alone as long as my love is near me
And I know it will be so till it’s time to go
All through the winter until the birds again return in spring
And I do not fear the time
Who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Who knows where my love grows?
Who knows where the time goes?

T og M: Sandy Denny

  • 8 I’m a Fool
  • 2:48| Lyrics |

I’m a fool to want you
I’m a fool to want you
To want a love that can’t be true
A love that’s there for others too

I’m a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss that devil has known

 

Time and time again I said I’d leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I´d have to say

I’m a fool to want you
Pity me, I need you
I know it’s wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can’t get along

Without you

T/M: Frank Sinatra / Jack Wolf / Joel S. Herron

  • 9 Ebb Tide
  • 2:20| Lyrics |

First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore
Then rolls out to sea
And the sea is very still once more


So I rush to your side
Like the oncoming tide
With one burning thought
Will your arms open wide

 

At last we’re face to face
And as we kiss through an embrace
I can tell, I can feel
You are love, you are real
Really mine

in the rain
In the dark, in the sun
Like the tide at its ebb
I’m at peace in the web of your arms

T:  Carl Sigman M: Robert Maxwell

 

 

  • 10 Go Leave
  • 2:48| Lyrics |

Go, leave
She’s better than me
Or at least she is stronger
She will make it last longer
That’s nice for you

Go, leave
Don’t come back
No more am I for the taking
But I can’t say that my heart’s not aching
It’s breaking in two

I remember days when we laughed a lot
Those that weren’t so good, I soon forgot
We could sit and talk till words
Were coming out our ears
Not just for days, or weeks, or months

But it’s been years

And here they come
here come my tears

So go, leave
You said goodbye
But could it be that you are stalling
Hearts have a way of calling
When they’ve been true.

T og M: Kate og Anna Mcgalligle

...til deg... from 2010 is a folk/roots/country album and was released in Scandinavia. The album includes songs in Norwegian, Swedish and English. The lead-song of this album "Velkommen hjem" is a Norwegian translation (done by Guren Hagen) of Victoria Shaw’s «Never Alone».

  • 1 Velkommen hjem
  • 4:03| Lyrics |

Vil at engler skal se deg, alt godt skal skje deg
stien du går på vil lede deg hjem
vil at glasset ditt fylles
sangen din hylles
drømmen og veien vil løfte deg frem

Måtte du når det gælder, få styrke som tæller
så du let kan mestre den vildeste strøm
måtte gyldne stunder, gi’ øjebliks under
jeg bli’r her og venter, du er velkommen hjem

Velkommen hjem
Velkommen hjem
Du kan bli her så lenge du vil, du er velkommen hjem
Vet du må gå, men husk hva jeg sa
Du vil forbli her i hjertet mitt og du er velkommen hjem

Men så må du nok takle og snuble og vakle
Og kæmpe med længsel i vind og i regn
Og når mørket vil ta deg, eie og ha deg
Kom hit ned bak åsen, du er velkommen hjem.

Velkommen hjem
Velkommen hjem
Du kan bli her så lenge du vil, du er velkommen hjem
Vet du må gå, men husk hva jeg sa
Du vil forbli her i hjertet mitt og du er velkommen hjem

Velkommen hjem
Velkommen hjem
Du kan bli her så lenge du vil, du er velkommen hjem
Vet du må gå, men husk hva jeg sa
Du vil forbli her i hjertet mitt og du er velkommen hjem
Du vil forbli her i hjertet mitt og du er velkommen hjem

  • 2 Tätt intill dej
  • 3:01| Lyrics |

Tiden har gått, men nu är vi här
Tänd inget ljus  Sitt bara där
Ingen champagne, jag är ändå yr
Allt jag önskar mig, är bara ett:
smyga mig tätt intill dig

Svep mig iväg, kyss mig och sen
Viska mitt namn, gör det igen
Se den jag är – utan spets och satin
Allt jag önskar mig, är bara ett:
smyga mig tätt intill dig

Månen är stor – lockar inatt
Men jag vill drömma här med dig
min glittrande blick kan bli din skatt
Snälla var alltid här med  mig

Jag vet det är sent, men vem bryr sig om sen
Allt jag önskar mig, är bara ett:
Att smyga mig tätt intill dig
Är bara ett:
Att smyga mig tätt intill dig

  • 3 Saknar dej nu
  • 3:28| Lyrics |

Får jag berätta?
Säga som det är?
Orkar du lyssna?
Fast det är försent?
Allt det som hände,
hände mig för fort
Allt som jag kände,
var alldeles för stort,
alldeles för stort

Men jag saknar dej nu

Ja, jag saknar dej nu
Och jag vet du vaknar nån annan stans,
i nån annan stad, i nån annan värld,
men jag saknar dej nu
Allt är slut
(MUNSPEL)
Allt är slut
(MUNSPEL)

Sommar’n är över,
luften har blivit sval
Träden står nakna
Sikten är så klar
Snart kommer vintern
Mörker, is och snö
Minnerna vissnar,
och sen så ska de dö,
sen så ska de dö
Och jag saknar dej nu
Ja, jag saknar dej nu
Och jag vet du vaknar nån annan stans,
i nån annan stad, i nån annan värld,
men jag saknar dej nu
Ja, jag saknar dig nu!
Och jag vet du vaknar nån annan stans,
i nån annan stad, i nån annan värld,
men jag saknar dej nu
Allt är slut
Allt är slut
När allt är slut
Allt är slut

  • 4 Folkestadsvisa
  • 3:26| Lyrics |

Ei rose har eg sett
uti ei blomehave
den var den venaste
som herren gud har laga

di meire ho voks fram
di finare ho vart
men aller mest for meg
som sjeldan fekk ho sjå

2.det var ei lita tid
da me fekk lov å gange
i mellom frukt og tre
og blome herleg ange

men så blei hagen stengd
eg fekkje koma inn
det blei forbode meg
å sjå dei blomekinn

3.eg ønskjer deg min ven
så mange rolege netter
som linden bere lauv
og hasslen bere neter

som sand og sjø ved strand som stjernar utan tak
Om kvelden lyser opp
I høge himmel sal

  • 5 Den första sommaren
  • 3:31| Lyrics |

Det är så skönt, att komma hem
Här blåser vindarna så friska
och jag mår så bra igen
Det är som förr – fast mycket mer, det jag ser
är bilden av den första sommaren

Det låg just här vårt sommarland
Och om man letar riktigt noga
ser man nattviol ibland
De luktar gott, det väcker minnen till liv
Jag känner att det var en lycklig tid

Nu vill jag leva  nu vill jag se mig om
Nu vill jag följa alla drömmar som var verklighet en gång
Nu vill jag följa med – jag kommer nu
Och kärleken den första –  det var du

Nu vill jag leva  här vill jag stanna kvar
Nu vill jag hitta alla ställen jag vill känna hur det var
Nu vill jag följa med jag anar den
Här hittar jag den första sommaren

En sommaräng jag minns så väl
att det var spännande att träffas
det var svårt att ta farväl
Vi dröjde kvar, det var en midsommardans
Det var som inga andra männskor fanns

Då var jag ung och allt var lätt
Nu har jag tankar om det mesta
men idag så känns det lätt
att följa med, nu vill jag skratta igen
Det känns som det är första sommaren

Nu vill jag leva  nu vill jag se mig om
Nu vill jag följa alla drömmar som var verklighet en gång
Nu vill jag följa med – jag kommer nu
Och sommaren den första det är du

Nu vill jag leva  här vill jag stanna kvar
Nu vill jag hitta alla ställen jag vill känna hur det var
Nu vill jag följa med –  jag anar den
Här hittar jag den första sommaren

Nu vill jag leva, här vill jag stanna kvar
Nu skall jag leta mina vänner dom som visste vem jag var
Nu skall jag följa med, vi hittar den
Här hittar vi den första sommaren

  • 6 Hole in the world
  • 3:54| Lyrics |

I can´t count the times I thought about you
Only God can count the raindrops falling from the sky
All those nights I swear that I felt you
Angels waiting stir´n up sweet memories in the air
And I´ll always miss your smile
I feel lost like a little child

There´s a hole in world today
And there´s so many words I still wanna say
I know you didn´t mean to,
But you took so much away.
There´s a hole in the world today

You were like the sunrise every morning
I miss the way you´d always – shine on me
And you know I´m a firm believer
When I cross that river I know you´ll be there
I´m still learning how laugh
I can´t keep myself from looking back.

There´s a hole in world today
And there´s so many words I still wanna say
I know you didn´t mean to,
But you took so much away.
There´s a hole in the world today

  • 7 Levande död
  • 4:09| Lyrics |

Det här huset är tomt
Har förlorat sin själ
Jag har reglat min dörr
Och det känns som farväl
Alla ljus har jag släckt
Jag ser helst ingenting
Jag vill inte bli väckt
För att irra omkring

Jag är en levande död
Jag är en skugga som smyger runt
Jag tassar runt som en mus i tomma rum
Jag är en dimma på flykt
Det som är kvar av en eld som brann
Jag var ett flammande hopp
Du tog min själ ur min kropp
Jag är en levande död

Jag vill drömma ifred
Låta solen gå opp
Bara lägga mig ned
Minnas värmen av hans kropp
Han finns där I din stol
Och han delar ditt skratt
Och han ligger så trygg
I din säng varje natt

Jag är en levande död
Jag är en skugga som smyger runt
Jag blev en bild av en dröm som slets itu
Jag är en dimma på flykt
Det som är kvar av en eld som brann
Jag var ett flammande hopp
Du tog min själ ur min kropp
Jag är en levande död
Jag var ett flammande hopp
Du tog min själ ur min kropp
Jag är en levande död

  • 8 En dröm om dej och mej
  • 4:05| Lyrics |

Vad skall jag nu ta mig till – med all min sorg
Jagar mig, överallt – vad jag än tar mig till
Fryser när ljuset fladdrar svagt – i mitt skymningsland
Jag sitter fast – och natten håller kvar mig

Jag ville aldrig bli så kär i dig
Och finns det något namn för vad du gör mot mig?
Du stal min själ – så älskar du!
Jag plågas av en dröm om dig och mig
– En dröm om dig och mig

Sett så många brustna hjärtan  gått på grund
liksom vrak, som förlist
– och ett av dem var mitt
Höjer mitt glas, jag skålar trött – mot en kolsvart natt
Och undrar så
Var finns min morgonstjärna?

Jag ville aldrig bli så kär i dig
och finns det något namn för vad du gör mot mig?
Du stal min själ – så älskar du!
Jag plågas av en dröm om dig och mig

————–solo
En dröm om dig och mig
Som ändå lugnar mig
Är det din röst jag hör
Så vill den ändå väl!
och du vill ha mitt hjärta och se min själ?

Fryser när ljuset fladdrar till – i mitt skymningsland
Jag sitter fast – och natten håller kvar mig

Jag ville aldrig bli så kär i dig
Och finns det något namn för vad du gör mot mig?
Du stal min själ – så älskar du!
Jag plågas av en dröm om dig och mig

Jag ville aldrig bli så kär I dig
Och finns det något namn för vad du gör mot mig?
Du stal min själ – så älskar du
Jag plågas av en dröm om dig och mig

En dröm om dig och mig…

  • 9 Dagane
  • 4:55| Lyrics |

Ein gong kom kjærteiken heilt av seg sjølv
Og kvar dag den var av sølv
For du gyldte kvar ein augneblink med hugen fri,
Og blenda var eg me på reisa di

Dagar som sand ut av hendene renn
Om du tvilar, ja, så kjenn
Den eine som den andre ut i vinden fer,
Og tida som me har den reiser der
Ja tide som har den reiser der

Lov meg å vera hjå meg all din dag
Ja det lova me i lag
Så gav eg deg ein ring, ja det var lettvint gjort
Så luska og den dagen stille bort
Så luska og den dagen stille bort

Så langt
Så langt
Så langt som vinden greier og jage bylgjene bå
Så langt
Så langt
Så langt som vinden greier og jage bylgjene bå
Der skal eg fylgje deg, min venn
Der skal me finne dei igjen

Og ute lyskar styggen
Og skiljer deg frå meg
Og visste me, så hadde me
Nok kome oss i veg
Og eg har ‘bore deg på armen
Gjennom skog og over fjell
Og du ha’ halde meg i handa
Gjennom juv og myrke gjel
Og eg ha’ strekt meg etter deg
Og du ha’ strekt deg etter meg

Så langt
Så langt
Så langt som sola greier å fylgje bylgjene bå
Så langt
Så langt
Så langt som sola greier å fylgje bylgjene bå

Der skal eg fylgje deg, min venn
Der skal me finne dei igjen

  • 10 Goodbye
  • 3:34| Lyrics |

The time seem so short
Only one more to go
Then off to a new land
A new day tomorrow
You’ll leave on a rainbow
That takes you to dreams
Growing up slowly
Home you’ll be missing

No more bedtime stories
No more fairytales
You stay young, I know you will try
Moving on – you are saying
You don’t want to go
You don’t want to grow old
You’re still my little girl
And a woman I know

There’ll be no more bedtime stories
No more fairytales
You stay young, I know you will try
Moving on – you’re saying

Goodbye

Goodbye

  • 1 Upp gläd er alla – Svensk Versjon
  • 3:48| Lyrics |

Upp gläd er alla – gläd er nu
och tag emot ett heligt bud
som ger oss frid på jorden
För nu är männskosonen här
Och ska, för att han har oss kär
ge kraft åt visdomsorden

Se ingen sorg skall finnas mer
Guds glädje kommer till oss ner
Precis som det blev skrivet
Så tag emot Guds dyra skatt
Och fröjdas denna julenatt
Guds son skall ge oss livet

Å Gud din visdom är så stor
Att ingen som på jorden bor
Förstår din nådegåva
Vi tackar dig för allt vi får
Den sanning som vi ej förstår
Den frid som du har lovat

  • 2 Den fagraste rosa
  • 3:30| Lyrics |

Den fagraste Rosa er funni,
Ho upp millom Klunger er runni:
Vaar Jesus den dyraste Blomen
Rann upp av ei Ætt under Domen.

For sidan me misste den Æra
Guds Bilæt i Hjartat at bera,
Laag Verdi i Øyda og Villa,
Og Dauden oss herjade illa.

Men Herren ei Rosa let bløma
All Verdi til Sæla og Søma.
Og Angen til Himmelen stiger:
Vaar Jord til Guds Hage ho viger.

So blømer Guds Kyrkja med Æra
Og yndige Frugter kann bera,
I Kristo ho andar og liver.
Han Væta til Voksteren giver.

No skulde vel Verdi med Gleda
Til Frelsaren Lovsongar kveda.
Men Mange paa Klungrarne glosa
Og sjaa ei den himmelske Rosa.

Du Syndar! kvi vil du deg herda,
Som Klungren med Broddar deg gjerda,
Med storlaatne Tankar i Sinne
Som Tornarne strake og stinne!

Stig ned fraa den sjølvgjorde Hægdi
Og graat fyr din Frelsar i Lægdi!
So skal du hans Kjærleike kjenna:
For Rosor i Dalarne renna.

No Jesu! du stendig skal vera
Mi Rosa, mi Pryda og Æra.
Du eine mitt Hjarta skal taka.
Di Søta eg evig skal smaka!

Mi Rosa meg pryder og fagnar,
Mi Rosa meg gleder og gagnar,
Dei synduge Lyster ho driver
Og mildt under Krossen meg liver.

Lat Verdi meg truga og tvinga.
Lat Tornarne riva og stinga.
Naar Hjartat umsider vil bresta,
Eg Rosa paa Brystet vil festa.

Det lyser i stille grender
av tindrande ljos i kveld,
og tusende barnehender
mot himmelen ljosa held

Og glade med song dei helsar
sin broder i himmelhall
som kom og vart heimsens Frelsar
som barn i ein vesal stall.

Der låg han med høy til pute
og gret på si ringe seng,
men englane song der ute
på Betlehems aude eng.

Der song dei for fyrste gongen
ved natt over Davids by
den evige himmelsongen
som alltid er ung og ny.

Jag känner ro

Det känns som jag är trygg
när jag tänker på allt vi får
Der är nåt mer än den vackraste dröm jag haft f
ast jag inte har møtt dig än

Det finns et liv
det finns en plats som är för mig
den känner jag igen
För då har jag jo kommit hem
Det är ett annat liv
och jag lever för det jag vet
Att du kommer med kärleken
Det är du och jag vet att du finns nånstans
Fast jag inte har møtt dig än

Mitt liv blir helt när du är här
jag går dit du vill och jag är dig alltid nära
Och jag blir varm
när jag tänker på allt vi är
och vår kärlek som är så stor
Jag är trygg för jag vet hur mitt liv skall bli
Jag vill alltid följa dig

  • 6 I en steingrå vinter

I en steingrå vinter
Vinden kald og fjern
Jorden som et panser
Vannet hardt som jern
Sneen hadde lavet ned
Sne, bare sne
I den steingrå vinteren
en gang, et sted

Himlen gir han fra seg
Jorden lar han gå
Jord og himmel bøyer seg
når han tar kronen på
I en steingrå vinter
I stallen mørk og trist
Gjenoppstod vår Herre selv
som Jesus Krist

Engler og serafer
Kanskje var de der
Kanskje himlen gøymde
Ein veldig englehær
Men mora stod aleine
Jomfruelig og tyst
Og velsigna barnet sitt
Med et kyss

Jeg er svak og fattig
Hva kan jeg gi til ham
Hvis jeg var en gjeter
Da gav jeg ham et lam
Og var jeg rik og vis
Da fikk han velge fritt
Men jeg er bare meg
Jeg gir ham hjertet mitt

Jeg gir ham hjertet mitt

Eg gjer han hjartet mitt

snart er julen her på ny, i hver bygd og i hver by.

Nissen kommer hit å se, gaver har han også med.
en til far og en til mor, en til alle barn på jord.
engler svever høyt i sky, over hav og land og by

Jorden snurrer rundt seg selv, lys blir mørke, dag blir kveld.
rekk meg hånden kjære venn, la ditt øye gli igjen.

Her står vi i et vennskapsbånd, varme går fra hånd til hånd.

Velkommen igen, Guds engle små,

Trods klingrende frost godt år I spå

Vel mødt under sky på kirkesti,

Udbære vor jul ej nænner I,

O, måtte vi kun den glæde se,
før vore øjne lukkes!
Da skal, som en barnemoders ve,

Vor Fader i Himlen! lad det ske,
lad julesorgen slukkes!

No høyr, de gode folk på jord,
grunn inderleg på desse ord;
vår Gud oss gav ved jol vår von
og sende oss sin elska son.
Med helga møy vi bed i lag
og takkar Gud for joledag;
i Betlehem i denne natt
kom ein Messias, verdsens skatt.

Ved Davids by, på beiteland,
var hyrdingar med stav i hand,
då Herrens engel der steig ned.
Dei fall i age stumt på kne.
Stå opp og gå, sa engelen,
til Betlehem; for der de finn
eit barn, ein prins, vår Jesus god.
Så gå, ver ikkje redde no.

Med hjartans takk og frygd i sinn
fór hyrdingan’ til byen inn,
og ord av engel sant dei såg;
for Krist, vår frelsar, han der låg.
Og ved hans side ei møy så mjå
og full av omsut, passa på
den Livsens Herre som steig ned
for oss å vise veg til fred.

var hyrdingar med stav i hand,
då Herrens engel der steig ned.
Dei fall i age stumt på kne.
Stå opp og gå, sa engelen,
til Betlehem; for der de finn
eit barn, ein prins, vår Jesus god.
Så gå, ver ikkje redde no.

Med hjartans takk og frygd i sinn
fór hyrdingan’ til byen inn,
og ord av engel sant dei såg;
for Krist, vår frelsar, han der låg.
Og ved hans side ei møy så mjå
og full av omsut, passa på
den Livsens Herre som steig ned
for oss å vise veg til fred.

  • 1 Hallowed Mountains
  • 4:06| Lyrics |

Hallowed are the mountains
On this crystal day
Come the hour of twilight
Change is on its way

Eventide ascending
Robed in veils of blue
Magic is this moment
Sharing it with you

Drifting off to sleep
All the world in peace
Seven seriphs softly singing
Puts our souls at ease

Hallowed are the mountains
On this crystal day
Come the hour of twilight
Change is on its way

Eventide ascending
Robed in veils of blue
Magic is this moment
Sharing it with you

Seven seriphs softly singing
All the world in peace

  • 2 Hymn To Winter
  • 3:48| Lyrics |

Deep is the darkness that falls down on me
Long is the long night ’til morning will be
Bright be the north star to shine constantly
‘Til winter brings you home safely to me

Blessed be the west wind
Blessed be the wild ‘fall
Blessed be the ocean to carry you home
Blessed be cold winter, its storm and its sea
Blessed be the true love that brings you to me

Still is the valley, no bell to be ringing
Silent the harsh frost that crushes the tree
Frozen the heart with no song to be singing
‘Til winter brings you home safely to me

Blessed be the west wind
Blessed be the wild ‘fall
Blessed be the ocean to carry you home
Blessed be cold winter, its storm and its sea
Blessed be the true love that brings you to me

Deep is the darkness that falls down on me
Long is the long night ’til morning will be
Bright be the north star to shine constantly
‘Til winter brings you home safely to me

Blessed be the west wind
Blessed be the wild ‘fall
Blessed be the ocean to carry you home
Blessed be cold winter, its storm and its sea
Blessed be the true love that brings you to me

  • 3 Jesu, Joy Of Man’s Desiring
  • 3:20| Lyrics |

Thy throne Jesus, joy of man’s desiring
Holy wisdom, love most bright
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned
With the fire of life impassioned
Striving still to truth unknown
Soaring, dying round Thy throne

  • 4 Koppangen
  • 3:50| Lyrics |

There is silence around me in this peaceful winter night.
From the church down in the valley I can see the candlelight.
And I stopped for a moment in this winter paradise,

When I heard a choir singing through the darkness and the ice.

And the rays of lights behind the window’s vaulted frames
Have united the souls in hope that something great is waiting.
And I know that those who have left us here had the same thoughts as I,
We’re like flames in the darkness and stars up in the sky.

And I see how they sparkle and they fade before my eyes
And the truth is coming closer like a wonder in disguise.
We are caught here for a moment like an imprint of a hand
On an old and frosted window or a footprint in the sand.

For a while I’m eternal – that’s the only thing I know,
I am here and we share our dreams about our destination.
It is cold out here, the snow is white but I’m warm deep inside.
I am warm ’cause I know that my faith will be my guide

  • 5 Sarah’s Song
  • 4:23| Lyrics |

Mama, how do I begin
To explain this situation we’re in?
Angels heard the beautiful words that you prayed
And showed me the way to you

And they knew you were in love
So they sent me down from heaven above
Angels cried and kissed me goodbye, I was long gone
This is my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

When your fingers touch my skin
And you kiss my lips and tickle my chin
I breathe you in, oh Mama, I’m where I belong
This is my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

Oh, one day I will be grown
And I know, I’ll have a child on my own
Remember me this way, ’cause some day
I’ll be long gone, singing my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

  • 6 Your Sky
  • 3:40| Lyrics |

Moon,
Stars and sky
Forever changing
Constant am I
Longing for the day
With every rising sun
Believing you would come
To me

And you will be my moon
And my stars
My sky

Dreams
Hope and grace
Sacred the silence
Timeless embrace
Two seekers’ tearful smiles
With every rising sun
Believe and it will come
To you

And I will be your moon
And your stars
Your sun
And your sky

I’ll be your moon
Your sun
Your sky

  • 7 When Will My Heart Arise
  • 4:14| Lyrics |

Sissel
Northern Lights
When Will My Heart Arise
On this glad Christmas morning
When will my heart arise?
The dew will rise the dawning
The sun rise to the skies

Oh Jesu, while you’re sleeping
The whole world sings its joys
But I am filled with weeping
When will my heart arise?

I am the thorns that crowned you
I am the whips that scourge
I am the chains that bound you
Who all my sins did purge

I am the cross you shoulder
A cross that crucified
Against your tongue the boulder
When will my heart arise?

I heed here by your manger
Oh blessed winter child
Great, do not have me stranger
Into the winter wild

I kneel here for forgiveness
And all my sins despise
Forgive me gentle baby
Then will my heart arise

  • 8 Icelandic Lullaby
  • 2:34| Lyrics |

Sleep you now, oh child of mine
Sleep you in your manger
Sleep while winter winds will whine
Sleep you safe from danger

Sleep you when the dark ice groans
Frost and fire nearing
Sleep you when the silence moans
Sleep you with no fearing

Sleep you well and sleep you long
For life will leave you weary
Sleep you still and sleep you strong
‘Til you no longer hear me

You no longer hear me

  • 9 Ready To Go Home
  • 4:35| Lyrics |

On the streets below these walls
Where I used to walk
Now I can barely crawl
All this darkness rising tall
Lord, shine a light for me
I’m waiting to be called
I’m ready to go home
I’m ready to receive forgiveness for my sins
I’m ready to begin
Take this river to the sea
Where the delta flows
The tide is washing over me
Take this soul to heaven’s door
Show me where tomorrow lies
I’m waiting to be born
I’m ready to lay down
I’m ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I’m ready to go home
So tired, I lay down with these memories
I breath shallow deep inside of me

  • 10 Quando Sento Che Mi Ami
  • 4:14| Lyrics |

Le stelle chiamano. La notte va
Il giorno che vivrò non morirà
Il mondo cambierò solo per te
È impossibile, ma non per me

I wanna hold you close
Under the rain
I wanna kiss your smile
And feel the pain
I know what’s beautiful
Looking at you
In a world of lies
You are the truth

Amore! Quando mi ami
Mi sento forte
Ti salverò ovunque tu sarai

I’ll bring you everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I’m shining like a candle in the dark

Quando sento che mi ami

I wanna make you see
Just what I was
Show you the loneliness
And what it does

Ma le mie lacrime lontane già.
Tutto è più facile se tu sei qua

Oh baby
Every time you touch me
I become a hero
I’ll make you safe
No matter where you are

Ti porto tutto cio che chiedi
Niente sembra troppo
Io splendo anche nell oscurità

When you tell me that you love me

Senza di te, il mondo non puo più girare
Solo il tuo amore mi puo salvare

Amore! Quando mi ami
Mi sento forte
Ti salverò ovunque tu sarai
Ti porto tutto cio che chiedi
Niente sembra troppo
Io splendo anche nell oscurità
Quando sento che mi ami

You love me

Quando sento che mi ami

  • 5:32| Lyrics |

Going home, going home
I’m jus’ going home
Quiet like, some still day
I’m jus’ going home

It’s not far, yes close by
Through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more

Mother’s there ‘specting me
Father’s waiting, too
Lots of folk gathered there
All the friends I knew

All the friends I knew

I’m going home

Nothing lost, all’s gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more

Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life yes begun

There’s no break, ain’t no end
Jus’ a livin’ on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on

Going home, going home
I’m jus’ going home
It’s not far, yes close by
Through an open door
I’m jus’ going home

Going home, going home

  • 3 Bachianas Brasileiras
  • 5:40| Lyrics |

Lo, at midnight clouds are slowly passing, rosy and lustrous,

I Aria (Cantilena)
Tarde, uma nuvem rosea lenta e transparente,

o’er the spacious heav’n with lovliness laden. From the boundless deep the moon arises wondrous, glorifying the evening like a beauteous maiden. Now she adorns herself in half unconscious duty, eager, anxious that we recognize her beauty,
while sky and earth, yea, all nature with applause

salute her.
All the birds have ceased their sad and mournful complaining, now appears on the sea in a silver reflection
moonlight softly waking the soul and constraining hearts
to cruel tears and bitter dejection.
Lo, at midnight clouds are slowly passing

rosy and lustrous o’er
the spacious heavens dreamily wondrous.

  • 3:16| Lyrics |

Dusk is a lingering on empty streets
Evening is climbing down hollow steps
No one told me about sorrow
No one told said I’d be lonely

Walking them floors till light of dawn
Keeping one’s sorrow for company
Eyes I thought I had forgotten
Bright eyes shining my sorrow

Walking them floors till light of dawn
Keeping one’s sorrow for company
Eyes I thought I had forgotten
Bright eyes shining my sorrow

  • 8 What Child Is This?
  • 3:42| Lyrics |

What child is this who laid to rest
On Mary’s lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring him laud
The babe, the son of Mary

Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian fear
For sinners hear
The silent word is pleading

Nails, spears shall pierce him through
The cross be borne for me, for you
Hail, hail the word made flesh
The babe, the son of Mary

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh
Come peasant, king to own Him
The King of kings, salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

Raise, raise the song on high
The virgin sings a lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born
The babe, the son of Mary

  • 10 The Sleeping Princess
  • 2:33| Lyrics |

Hush! Hush!
With lovely eyes

Closed in sleep, the princess lies,
By a fairy charm enchanted,
Doomed to dream in forests haunted:
Hush! Hush!
Pale and wan, as dead she were,
Sleeps the princess ever there.
Hush! Hush!

Sudden on the silence breaking,
Laughing, shouting, merrymaking,
Thro’ the gloom the woodnymphs sweep,
Yet they do not break her sleep.

Fast asleep the princess lies,
Wrapped in mystery her eyes,
By a fairy charm enchanted,
Doomed to dream in forests haunted!
Hush! Hush!

Baleful charm and slumber fell:
Will she wake?
Ah, none can tell!
Hush! Hush!

It was down by the Salley Gardens, my love and I did meet.
She crossed the Salley Gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree,
But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree.

In a field down by the river, my love and I did stand
And on my leaning shoulder, she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.

Down by the Salley Gardens, my love and I did meet.
She crossed the Salley Gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree,
But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree.

Ingen vinner frem til den evige ro
som seg ei veldig fremtrenger.
Sjelen den må utstå en kamp for den tro
hvorav vår salighet henger.
Porten kalles trang og veien heter smal.
Dog kan Herrens nåde åpne himlens sal.
Kjemp da alvorlig, treng fremad med makt,
Om du vil himmerik vinne!

Meget vil deg hindre min sjel stå imot,
Satan ei nåden deg unner.
Treng deg gjennom alt som vil stanse din fot,
verg deg i fristelsens stunder.
Intet vil deg gagne hele verdens prakt
dersom den får sjelen fanget i sin makt.
Hør hva han sier som døde for deg:
Strid i Guds kraft for din krone.

Jesus i ditt hjerte er alle ting verd
selv er han himmeriks rike.
Derfor gjør med Jesus din daglige ferd
aldri vil han fra deg vike.
Treng deg til hans hjerte inn med all din makt
han i nåde rekker deg din bryllupsdrakt.
Hør hva han sier, bruk tålmod o sjel,
så skal du himmerik vinne,
så skal du himmerik vinne!

  • 2:57| Lyrics |

I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
With vassals and serfs at my side
And of all who assembled within those walls
That I was the hope and the pride

I had riches all too great to count
And a high ancestral name
But I also dreamt, which pleased me most
That you loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same

And I dreamt that one of that noble host
Came forth, my hand to claim
That I also dreamt, which charmed me most
That you loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same

  • 14 Like An Angel Passing Through My Room
  • 5:08| Lyrics |

Long awaited darkness falls.
Casting shadows on the walls.
In the twilight how I am alone.
Sitting near the fireplaces.
Dying embers warm my face.

Like the embers as they die.
Love was one prolonged goodbye.
And it all comes back to me tonight.
In the blue.
Like an angel passing through my room.
I close my eyes, and my twilight images go by.
All too soon.
Like an angel passing through my room.

In this peaceful solitude.
All the outside world subdued
Everything comes back to me again.
In the blue.
Like an angel passing through my room.
I close my eyes, and my twilight images go by.
All too soon.
Like an angel passing through my room.

Sorgerna delar
Vakan kring berg och dal

Hjärtat vill brista
Ack, när den sista
Gången hörde jag kärlekens röst
ögonens låga
Avskedets plåga
Mun emot mun och klappande bröst
Fjälldalen stod i grönskade skrud
Trasten slog drill på drill för sin brud
Strömkarlen spelar
Sorgerna delar
Vakan kring berg och dal

  • 3 O tysta ensamhet
  • 3:52| Lyrics |

O tysta ensamhet,
var skall jag nöjen finna?
Bland sorg som ingen vet,
skall mina dar försvinna.
En börda tung som sten
mig möter vart jag går.
Bland tusen finns knappt en,
som kärlek rätt förstår.

Det är den tyngsta sorg
som jorden månde bära
att man skall mista bort
sin allra hjärtans kära.
Det är den tyngsta sorg
som solen övergår
att man skall älska den
man aldrig nånsin får.

Ett rent och ädelt sinn,
en dygd som ensamt blänker,
en mun som talar ett
med allt vad hjärtat tänker.
Jag tror en sådan vän
är mer än mycket rar.
Var skall jag finna den
som dessa dygder har?

Emellan dig och mig
där tändes upp en låga
där tändes upp en eld
som är en daglig plåga.
Hur skall jag dämpa den
vet jag alls ingen rå´,
jag sörjer till min död
om jag dig ej kan få

  • 4 Der er ingenting i verden så stille som sne
  • 2:12| Lyrics |

Der er ingenting i verden så stille som sne,
når den sagte gennem luften daler,
dæmper dine skridt,
tysser, tysser blidt
på de stemmer, som for højlydt taler.

Der er ingenting i verden af en renhed som sne,
svanedun fra himlens hvide vinger.
På din hånd et fnug
er som tåredug.
Hvide tanker tyst i dans sig svinger.

Der er ingenting i verden, der kan mildne som sne.
Tys, du lytter, til det tavse klinger.
O, så fin en klang,
sølverklokkesang
inderst inde i dit hjerte ringer.

  • 5 Om Kvelden
  • 3:34| Lyrics |

Om kvelden når det mørkner, og alle går til ro,
da stenger jeg for stall og for låve.

Og spurvene, de netter seg i hver sitt lille bo,
da går vel også du til din kove.

Men siden vet jeg ikke å få tiden til å gå,
for i de lange netter, da lenges jeg så,
da har jeg ikke sinn til å sove.

Det mørkner over veien, og høsten stunder til,
og tåken, den tetner over enge.

På stiene i skogen har mangen en gått vill,
og stjernene de stiger så strenge.

Men kan du ikke komme iaften, lille venn,
så send et bud og si mig, når kommer du igjen?
Jeg har ikke sett dig på så lenge!

Nu står du foran speilet og kjemmer ditt hår,
så sort og alvorlig er ditt øie.

Da banker vel ditt hjerte, men hvorfor det slår,
der vet du ennu ikke så nøie;

for ennu har vel ingen fått komme dig nær.
Men over stolen henger dine fattige klær,
ditt skjørt og dine strømper og din trøie.

  • 6 Du Är Den Ende
  • 3:32| Lyrics |

Du är den ende,
som hemligen ser mig,
fast ingen har talat,
du vet vad jag ber dig.
Min längtan är bara du.
Blott du mig ger ett enda litet ord, är jag din.

Du är den ende, jag aldrig kan glömma,
din mun, dina ögon, din lugnande stämma.
Och därför jag ber dig nu
Blott du mig ger ett enda litet ord, är jag din.

Ingen som du, fast du hör till en annan,
du skänker mig kärlek, hos dig vill jag stanna!
Mitt öde det är att bli din i min fantasi, del av den värld som är din.

Du är den ende, som får mig att drömma,
den ende som anar, vad tårarna gömma.
Min längtan är bara du.
Om blott du ger ett enda litet ord, är jag din.

Du är den ende, jag aldrig kan glömma,
din mun, dina ögon, din lugnande stämma.
Och därför jag ber dig nu
Blott du mig ger ett enda litet ord, är jag din.

  • 7 Jeg lagde meg så slide
  • 3:20| Lyrics |

Jeg lagde meg så silde alt sent om en kveld,
jeg visste ingen kvide til at have;
så kom der da bud ifra kjæresten min,
jeg måtte til henne vel fare.
Ingen har jeg elsket over henne.

Så ganger jeg meg opp i høyen loft,
som alltid jeg var vant til at gjøre;
der stander de jomfruer alt uti flokk
og kleder min kjærest til døde.
Ingen har jeg elsket over henne!

Så gikk jeg meg ut på den grønne eng,
der hørte jeg de klokker at ringe;
ei annet jeg visste, ei annet jeg fornam,
enn hjertet i stykker ville springe.
Ingen har jeg elsket over henne!

Bereden väg för Herran! Berg, sjunken, djup, stån opp.
Han kommer, han från fjärran var sedd av fädrens hopp.
Rättfärdighetens förste, av Davids hus den störste.
Välsignad vare han som kom i Herrens namn.
Kring jordens länder alla skall denna lovsång skalla:
Välsignad vare han som kom i Herrens namn.

  • 9 Musens Sang
  • 3:29| Lyrics |

En enlig lille muse har det svære’ end man tror
Man befinder sig skidt mellem himmel og jord
Man slider og man slæber, men hvad skal man stille op
Med sit gode humør og sin medbragte krop
Man var så oplagt til alt, da man kom
Men det er der ing’n, der bekymrer sig om
En muses live og levned, det betyder ikke spor
Man er bare et fnug mellem himmel og jord

En muse er en pligtopfyld’ne lille meteor
Hun er alltid på fart mellem himmel og jord
Hun kommer, når det kaldes, og hun ofrer hvad hun kan
Om det så er seg selv, for at frelse en mand
Ak, men hvad har man så ud af sit job
Kun vrøvl og spetakler, og så skal man op
De småting, man har ordnet, nævnes ikke met et ord
Man har kun gjort sin pligt mellem himmel og jord

Der’ mend nok her i verden, en er lille, en er stor
Og de lover en alt mellem himmel og jord
Men manden, ham den rigti’e, der får pulsen til at slå
Det man som, man ved, at man

aldrig kan få

Jordiske piger til alteret går
Den chance er der ingen muse, der får
Så muser de må hell’re blive hjemme, hvor de bor
De får hjerterne knust mellem himmel og jord

  • 10 Den första gång jag såg dig
  • 4:01| Lyrics |

Den första gång jag såg dig, det var en sommardag
På förmiddagen, då solen lyste klar
Och ängens alla blommor av många hundra slag
De stodo bugade i par vid par
Och vinden drog så saktelig, och nere invid stranden
Där smög en bölja kärleksfullt till snäckan uti sanden
Den första gång jag såg dig, det var en sommardag
Den första gång jag tog dig uti handen

Den första gång jag såg dig, då glänste sommarskyn
Så bländande som svanen i sin skald
Då kom det ifrån skogen, från skogens gröna bryn
Liksom ett jubel utav fåglars ljud
Då ljöd en sång från himmelen så skön som inga flera
Det var den lilla lärkan grå, så svår att observera
Den första gång jag såg dig, då glänste sommarskyn
Så bländande och grann som aldrig mera

Och därför när jag ser dig, om och i vinterns dag
Då drivan ligger glittrande och kall
Nog hör jag sommarns vindar och lärkans friska slag
Och vågens brus i alla fulla fall
Nog tycker jag ur dunig bädd sig gröna växter daga
Med blåklint och med klöverblad, som älskande behaga
Att sommarsolen skiner på dina anletsdrag
Som rodna och som stråla och betaga

  • 3:49| Lyrics |

Här är stillhet och tystnad
nu när marken färgats vit.
Från den trygga gamla kyrkan
klingar sången ända hit.
Jag har stannat vit vägen
för att vila mig ett tag
och blev fångat i det gränsland
som förenar natt och dag.
Och ett skin ifrån ljuset
bakom fönstrets välvda ram
har förenat dom själar
som finn med oss här i tiden.
Och jag vet att dom som har gått för oss
har förstått att vi är
liksom fladdrande lågor
så länge vi är här

  • 13 Sofdu unga astin min
  • 2:34| Lyrics |

Sofðu unga ástin mín.
Úti regnið grætur.
Mamma geymir gullin þín,
gamla leggi og völuskrín.
Við skulum ekki vaka um dimmar nætur.

Það er margt sem myrkrið veit,
minn er hugur þungur.
Oft ég svarta sandinn leit
svíða grænan engireit.
Í jöklinum hljóða dauðadjúpar sprungur.

Sofðu lengi, sofðu rótt,
seint mun best að vakna.
Mæðan kenna mun þér fljótt,
meðan hallar degi skjótt,
að mennirnir elska, missa, gráta og sakna.

Mon cœur s’ouvre à ta voix

Aux baisers de l’aurore
Mais, o mon bien-aime,

Que ta voix parle encore
Dis-moi qu’a Dalila tu reviens pour jamais
Redis a ma tendresse
Les serments d’autrefois
Ces serments que j’aimais

Ah, réponds
réponse à ma tendresse
-moi, verse-moi l’ivresse
Réponds à ma tendresse
Réponds à ma tendresse
Ah, verse-moi, verse-moi l’ivresse
Réponds à ma tendresse

Ah, verse-moi, verse-moi l’ivresse

  • 4 Wait A While
  • 4:24| Lyrics |

Wait before you go, so you will know
What I am feeling as you leave
I understand your need for some time
Some solitude

Wait a while before you go
You should know by now
My heart belongs to you

I know that you must leave
And I can see that it’s not easy for you
Now that I’ll be here, I know that my soul
Is always near you

Wait a while before you go
You should know by now I love you
And so I will wait a while for you

The sand of time
Is slipping through my fingers
You and I
Still the memories linger on and on

Now I know if I can only let go
And wait a while, you’ll be here again with me
The same old friends we’ve always been

Wait a while before you go
You should know by now I love you
And so I will wait a while

Wait a while
Wait a while for you

  • 5 Tristezze
  • 5:23| Lyrics |

È triste il mio cuor senza di te
Che sei lontana e più non pensi a me
Dimmi perché
Fai soffrir quest’anima che t’ama
E ti vuole vicin
Sei tu la vision che ogni sera
Sognar fa il cuor che nell’amore spera
Ma è un’illusion
Più da me non tornerai
Forse un’altro bacerai
Mentre triste vola la canzon
Che canto a te
Solamente a te
Dolce sogno d’or
Questo vuole il cour
Triste senz’amor

At seg naturen til døden kan bøye
Ånden alene må leve for deg

  • 8 Oblivion
  • 4:37| Lyrics |

One stolen kiss from you
And the world I knew went away
And for ever would cease to be
All I had known before
Could exist no more
Only you and me
One look at you left my soul undone
And we drifted to oblivion

You overcome all my heart’s defences
No past or future tenses
Live in the world within your arms
Who else could fill all my thoughts and senses?
You are the only one
Oblivion

How could I not have known
I am yours alone, my desire
That I’m destined to be with you
Yours for the rest of time
And the test of time
We will sail right through
One look at you left my soul undone
And we drifted to oblivion
Oblivion

  • 10 The Sleeping Princess
  • 2:54| Lyrics |

Hush! Hush!
With lovely eyes

Closed in sleep, the princess lies,
By a fairy charm enchanted,
Doomed to dream in forests haunted:
Hush! Hush!
Pale and wan, as dead she were,
Sleeps the princess ever there.
Hush! Hush!

Sudden on the silence breaking,
Laughing, shouting, merrymaking,
Thro’ the gloom the woodnymphs sweep,
Yet they do not break her sleep.

Fast asleep the princess lies,
Wrapped in mystery her eyes,
By a fairy charm enchanted,
Doomed to dream in forests haunted!
Hush! Hush!

Baleful charm and slumber fell:
Will she wake?
Ah, none can tell!
Hush! Hush!

  • 4:26| Lyrics |

Mama, how do I begin
To explain this situation we’re in?
Angels heard the beautiful words that you prayed
And showed me the way to you

And they knew you were in love
So they sent me down from heaven above
Angels cried and kissed me goodbye, I was long gone
This is my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

When your fingers touch my skin
And you kiss my lips and tickle my chin
I breathe you in, oh Mama, I’m where I belong
This is my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

Oh, one day I will be grown
And I know, I’ll have a child on my own
Remember me this way, ’cause some day
I’ll be long gone, singing my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

  • 2 Better Off Alone
  • 3:52| Lyrics |

Girl don’t be sad
You know what you’re missing
No reason to feel bad
He don’t mean much with his kisses
you’re gonna make it through
You have always been surviving
I’ve got faith in you
And I know you’ll get it going

But you can’t go back
To what it never was
To repossess, what you never owned
But you can’t go back
To what it never was
This is that time, this is that time
When you’re better off alone

Girl don’t you see
there’s nothing more to see there
you’ve got a friend in me
And I will always be here
And you know it won’t be long
Until it’s all behind you
You will meet someone
Someone?s bound to find you

But you can’t go back
To what it never was
To repossess, what you never owned
But you can’t go back
To what it never was
This is that time, this is that time
When you’re better off alone

Even alone at night
You will be all right
you’re so strong? you will get over him
And there will be times
That I’ll expect these lies
Not to comfort? but remind you

But you can’t go back

  • 3 Keep Falling Down
  • 5:06| Lyrics |

I’m all alone in the rainfall
I hear my name call
I look up but there’s no one around

The sky is wild and the wind blows
I’m out my window
Trying to fly but I keep falling down

I will never have that dream again
If I do I’ll just get up and then
Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

I live my life, where it takes me
I’m what it makes me
I get up but I keep falling down
Keep falling down

The blinding light silhouettes me
I try to get free
So I run but I keep falling down
Keep falling down

I will never have that dream again
If I do I’ll just get up and then
Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

And every night I close my eyes
I hear the voices calling
Don’t try to hide, don’t try to fight

It’s only sleep, it’s just a dream
And you’re not really falling
Get up and try to live your life

I live my life, where it takes me
I’m what it makes me
I get up but I keep falling down
Keep falling down

I will never have that dream again
If I do I’ll just get up and then
Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

And every night I close my eyes
I hear the voices calling
Don’t try to hide, don’t try to fight

If you ever would need someone

If you ever would need someone

Need you ever to love someone
Consider me
Will you ever know your lover cute’s gone
So think of me

I’m free
All good things come to the one who waits
All good things come to the one who waits

Since I never had to fight
I lose easily
Since I never had to fight
I still believe

Patiently… that
All good things come to the one who waits
All good things come to the one who waits

All good things come to the one who waits
All good things come to the one who waits

If you ever would need someone
Then think of me

  • 6 We Both Know
  • 3:26| Lyrics |

Here I am, on my own again
All alone, but not afraid
Here I stand, nowhere near the end
Time to go a different way

Cause another day will come to those who dare
Believe in something new

When you follow your shining star
Leave all your fears behind
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say? one day

When you’re down, and you haven’t found
Where you think you want to go
Do you search for higher ground
Deep inside you really know

Cause another day will come to those who dare
Believe in something new

When you follow your shining star
Leave all your fears behind
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say? one day

I know it’s hard to leave
The future seems so far away and,
Believe that all you need will come to you? one day

Follow your shining star
Leave all your fears behind
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say? one day

  • 7 Carrier Of A Secret
  • 4:08| Lyrics |

Carrier of a secret
No one wants to know
Show a little conscience

Guardian of the palace
No one wants to go
Broken hearted monster

Tell me the words that’ll touch me
Tell me what’s hurting you so

Carrier of a secret
Let your secret go

Carrier of a secret
Whispered in the dark
What are you afraid of?

Carrier of a secret
Hidden in your heart
Show me what you are made of

Now put your hand to the quiver
Now to the bend of the bow

Let it fly, let it light the sky above you
Let it fly, let somebody try to love you

Carrier of a secret
To unhip to show
Too uncool to mention

Carrier of a secret
Let your secret go
More like confession

Now like a bird from your window
Now like a song from your heart

Let it fly, let it light the sky above you
Let it fly, let somebody try to love you

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly?
How many mountains must you climb
Before you let your secret flow?

Let it fly, let it light the sky above you

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret

How many mountains must you climb?

How many tears must you cry?
(Let somebody try to love you)
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly?

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly?

  • 8 Solitaire
  • 3:33| Lyrics |

There was a man
A lonely man
Who lost his love
Through his indifference

A heart that cared
That one time shared
Until it died
Within his silence

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere,
He’s playing solitaire

A little hope
Goes up in smoke
Just how it goes
Goes without saying

There was a man
A lonely man
Who would command
The hand he’s playing

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere,
He’s playing solitaire

And keeping to himself, begins to deal
And still the King of Hearts is well concealed
Another losing game comes to an end
And he deals them out again

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere,
He’s playing solitaire

  • 9 Should It Matter
  • 4:51| Lyrics |

I look at you
Please don’t walk away
I see you’re about to
There is just something I’d really like to say
So please don’t walk away

I know that you’re there
Still you pretend you’re not
Yes I know it hurts
I have also felt the pain

So should it matter
What I do or what I’ve done
As long as in my heart
You’re still the only one
I hear you say it
But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

It’s been a year
a memory from my past
I know what I did wrong
I wish to change
Just to make it last
But I guess it’s been too long

Easy to move on
To forget to about it all
Is that what you do, hoping I will be gone

So should it matter
What I do or what I’ve done
As long as in my heart
You’re still the only one
I hear you say it
But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

If you got to know me again
Maybe then — maybe then
We could see what what we should do
But that’s all up to you
I’ll be waiting for you

So should it matter
What I do or what I’ve done
As long as in my heart
You’re still the only one
I hear you say it

But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

I hear you say it
But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

Lær meg å kjenne dine veie
Og gå dem trøstig skritt for skritt

Is my heart beating
Time and time again for you

And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I don’t know why but I know
It’s all right

All I can hear
Is my own breathing
Echo in my loneliness

If I could sleep
I would be dreaming
Of the sweetness of your kiss

And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I don’t know why but I know
It’s all right
And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I’m so high, I’m with my angel tonight

And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I don’t know why but I know
It’s so right
And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I’m so high, I’m with my angel tonight

  • 1 Innerst I Sjelen
  • 4:27| Lyrics |

Innerst i sjelen
Stiger landet frem:
En blank og gylden stripe land
Som en gang var mitt hjem

Skogene av stillhet
Stiene som går
Gjennom lyng of åkerland
Til havet utenfor
Lyd av vind og drømmer
Lukt av jord og hav
Ryggene som retter seg
Når stormen bøyer av…

Innerst i sjelen
Hvisker det hver kveld
Om et skjult og annet land
Som en gang var meg selv

Havet blir tilbake
Dønningene slår
Timeslag på timeslag
Mot landet utenfor
Restene av minne
Og skyggene av en sang
Blander seg med jord og himmel
I hver solnedgang

Innerst i sjelen
Skjelver det en klang
Fra et annet landskap
Som var meg en gang

Innerst i sjelen
Stiger landet frem:
En blank og gylden stripe land
Som en gang var mitt hjem

Instr. solo. mod

Innerst i sjelen
Hvisker det hver kveld
Om et skjult og annet land
Som en gang var meg selv

Innerst i sjelen
Stiger landet frem:
En blank og gylden stripe land
Som en gang var mitt hjem

  • 2 Solitaire
  • 4:06| Lyrics |

There was a man
A lonely man
Who lost his love
Through his indifference

A heart that cared
That one time shared
Until it died
Within his silence

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere,
He’s playing solitaire

A little hope
Goes up in smoke
Just how it goes
Goes without saying

There was a man
A lonely man
Who would command
The hand he’s playing

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere,
He’s playing solitaire

And keeping to himself, begins to deal
And still the King of Hearts is well concealed
Another losing game comes to an end
And he deals them out again

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere,
He’s playing solitaire

  • 3 Våren
  • 5:45| Lyrics |

Enno ein Gong fekk eg Vetren å sjå
for Våren å røma;
Heggen med Tre som der blomar var på,
eg atter såg bløma.
Enno ein Gong fekk eg Isen å sjå
frå Landet å fljota,
Snjoen å bråna og Fossen i Å
å fyssa og brjota.
Graset det grøne eg enno ein Gong
fekk skoda med Blomar;
enno eg høyrde at Vårfuglen song
mot Sol og mot Sumar.

Eingong eg sjølv i den vårlege Eim,
som mettar mit Auga,
eingong eg der vil meg finna ein Heim
og symjande lauga.
Alt det, som Våren imøte meg bar
og Blomen, eg plukka,
Federnes Ånder eg trudde det var,
som dansa og sukka.
Derfor eg fann millom Bjørkar og Bar
i Våren ei Gåta;
derfor det Ljod i den Fløyta eg skar,
meg tyktes å gråta.

  • 4 Vestland, Vestland
  • 3:22| Lyrics |

Å Vestland, Vestland! Når eg ser deg slik
med fagre fjell og fjord og tronge vik,
det stig i all sin venleik stort og vilt
og atter møter meg så mjukt og mildt.

Og gleda strøymer i meg still og stor
med glans av bjørkeli og blåe fjord.
Og i meg sjølv eg kjenner dypter av
den stille skogen og det store hav.

Min lette båt ein solblank kveld eg ror,
sjå fjell og himil sym på stille fjord,
og djupe dalen med sitt grøne fang,
som skin av lauv og blom frå lid og vang.

Sjå skuggane som kliv dei kvasse fjell,
lik dagsens timar tøyer seg mot kveld.
Det sveiper seg umtind og tronge dal
eit draumeslør av sumarnatti sval.

Vitae lux, vitae vis,
unde spes vigens.
Duc sub nocte per umbras,
firmentur pedes.
Silentium mox intrat,
mortis vis valet.
Anget vitae semita,
ne nos occultet.

Vitae lux, vitae vis,

Duc sub nocte per umbras,
firmentur pedes.
Silentium mox intrat,
mortis vis valet.
Anget vitae semita,
ne nos occultet.

  • 6 Koppangen
  • 5:22| Lyrics |

Här är stillhet och tystnad
nu när marken färgats vit.
Från den trygga gamla kyrkan
klingar sången ända hit.
Jag har stannat vit vägen
för att vila mig ett tag
och blev fångat i det gränsland

som förenar natt och dag.
Och ett skin ifrån ljuset
bakom fönstrets välvda ram
har förenat dom själar
som finn med oss här i tiden.
Och jag vet att dom som har gått för oss
har förstått att vi är
liksom fladdrande lågor
så länge vi är här

O Mio babbino caro
Mi piace, è bello, bello;
Vo’ andare in Porta Rossa
A comperar l’anello!
Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
E se l’amasi indarno
Andrei sul Ponte Vecchio
Ma per buttarmi in Arno!
Mi struggo e mi tormento!
Dio, vorrei morir!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!

  • 8 Se Ilden Lyse
  • 4:12| Lyrics |

Gå mot det lyset som flammer i nord
Gå til det landet hvor trollene bor
Der hvor alle er venn
Med vinteren

Gå mot den fremtid du vet du kan få
Gå mot den himmel som drømmen kan nå
Gå den bratteste vei
Jeg går med deg

Gi meg glede når vi er sammen
Lån meg din hånd når jeg går meg vill
Hvis jeg fryser gir du meg varme
I din nærhet hører jeg til

Se ilden lyse over jord
Se jorden bli en stjerne fager og stor
Som en snekrystall mot himlens blå
Svever den drømmen vi lever på

Nordlyset tenner en flamme for fred
Du er den venn jeg vil dele den med
Når din verden bli min
Og min bliver din

  • 9 Kjærlighet
  • 4:38| Lyrics |

Kjærlighet – varmeste ord på jord
Kjærlighet – når det slår rod og gror
Spres det lys midt i et mørke som
Inn til vor verden kom
Og skapte hat og grenser

Kjærlighet – uten de store ord
Setter de dybe sterke spor
Varsom hånd over et smilløst kinn
Baner kjærlig vei, inn til et frossent sinn

Ingen kan kreve
Men alle kan gi
Ingen kan leve
Foruten fordi
Kjærlighet skaper
Nytt liv og nytt håp
Der hvor hatet råder

Kjærlighet – varmeste ord på jord
Kjærlighet – når det slår rod og gror
Spres det lys midt i et mørke som
Inn til vor verden kom
Og skapte hat og grenser

Kjærlighet – uten de store ord
Setter de dybe sterke spor
Varsom hånd over et smilløst kinn
Baner kjærlig vei, inn til et frossent sinn

Ingen kan kreve
Men alle kan gi
Ingen kan leve
Foruten fordi
Kjærlighet skaper
Nytt liv og nytt håp
Der hvor hatet råder

Kjærlighet – varmeste ord på jord
Kjærlighet – når det slår rod og gror
Spres det lys midt i et mørke som
Inn til vor verden kom
Og skapte hat og grenser

Kjærlighet – uten de store ord
Setter de dybe sterke spor
Varsom hånd over et smilløst kinn
Baner kjærlig vei, inn til et frossent sinn

  • 10 Where The Lost Ones Go
  • 4:40| Lyrics |

Leave and let me go
You’re not meant for me, i know
Carry on, carry on, and i’ll stay strong

Leave and let me go
I will think of you, i know
But carry on, carry on, and i’ll stay strong

Someone else will keep you warm, from now on
Someone else will keep you safe from the storm
But i’ll be with you wherever you go
So you will never be alone
I’m going where the wind blows
Going where the lost ones go

I will be with you
I’m losing the love i found
Crying without a sound
Where have you gone?
I will be with you
You were my fool for love
Sent me from high above
You were the one
I will be with you
I’m going where the wind blows
Going where the lost ones go

Leave and let me go
Don’t look back just let me know
You’ll carry on, carry on, you must stay strong

Nothing ever looks the same in the light
Nothing ever seems to quite turn out right
But when you realize that you have been loved
You will never be alone
I’m going where the wind blows
Going where the lost ones go

I will be with you
I’m losing the love i found
Crying without a sound
Where have you gone?
I will be with you
You were my fool for love
Sent me from high above
You were the one
I will be with you
I’m going where the wind blows
Going where the lost ones go

Leave and let me go
Baby i can’t come along
So carry on, carry on, you must stay strong

  • 11 Mitt Hjerte Alltid Vanker
  • 4:32| Lyrics |

Mitt hjerte alltid vanker
i Jesu føderom,
der samles mine tanker
som i sin hovedsum.
Der er min lengsel hjemme,
der har min tro sin skatt;
jeg kan deg aldri glemme
velsignet julenatt!

Akk, kom jeg opp vil lukke
mitt hjerte og mitt sinn
og full av lengsel sukke:
Kom, Jesus, dog herinn!
Det er ei fremmed bolig,
du har den selv jo kjøpt,
så skal du blive trolig
her i mitt hjerte svøpt.

Jeg gjerne palemgrene
vil om din krybbe strø,
for deg, for deg alene
jeg leve vil og dø.
Kom, la min sjel dog finne
sin rette gledes stund,
at du er født herinne
i hjertets dype grunn

Eg ser at du er trøtt
Men eg kan ikkje gå alle skrittene for deg
Du må gå de sjøl
Men eg ve gå de med deg
Eg ve gå de med deg

Eg ser du har det vondt
Men eg kan ikkje grina alle tårene for deg
Du må grina de sjøl
Men eg ve grina med deg
Eg ve grina med deg

Eg ser du vil gi opp
Men eg kan ikkje leve livet for deg
Du må leva det sjøl
Men eg ve leva med deg
Eg ve leva med deg

Eg ser du er redd
Men eg kan ikkje gå I døden for deg
Du må smake han sjøl
Men eg gjer død til liv for deg
Eg gjer død til liv for deg
Eg har gjort død til liv for deg

  • 1 Weightless
  • 4:27| Lyrics |

All of my life
I have been waiting
Wondering what I will do

All I can feel
Is my heart beating
Time and time again for you

And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I don’t know why but I know
Its all right

All I can hear
Is my own breathing
Echo in my loneliness

If I could sleep
I would be dreaming
Of the sweetness of your kiss

And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I don’t know why but I know
Its all right
And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I’m so high, I’m with my angel tonight

And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I don’t know why but I know
Its so right
And I’m weightless, falling in love
I am weightless
And I’m so high, I’m with my angel tonight

  • 2 Carrier Of A Secret
  • 4:27| Lyrics |

Carrier of a secret
No one wants to know
Show a little conscience

Guardian of the palace
No one wants to go
Broken hearted monster

Tell me the words that’ll touch me
Tell me what’s hurting you so

Carrier of a secret
Let your secret go

Carrier of a secret
Whispered in the dark
What are you afraid of?

Carrier of a secret
Hidden in your heart
Show me what you are made of

Now put your hand to the quiver
Now to the bend of the bow

Let it fly, let it light the sky above you
Let it fly, let somebody try to love you

Carrier of a secret
To unhip to show
Too uncool to mention

Carrier of a secret
Let your secret go
More like confession

Now like a bird from your window
Now like a song from your heart

Let it fly, let it light the sky above you
Let it fly, let somebody try to love you

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly?
How many mountains must you climb
Before you let your secret flow?

Let it fly, let it light the sky above you

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret

How many mountains must you climb?

How many tears must you cry?
(Let somebody try to love you)
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly?

How many mountains must you climb?
How many tears must you cry?
How many seasons must go by
Before you let your secret fly?

  • 3 Should It Matter
  • 5:06| Lyrics |

I look at you
Please don’t walk away
I see you’re about to
There is just something I’d really like to say
So please don’t walk away

I know that you’re there
Still you pretend you’re not
Yes I know it hurts
I have also felt the pain

So should it matter
What I do or what I’ve done
As long as in my heart
You’re still the only one
I hear you say it
But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

It’s been a year
a memory from my past
I know what I did wrong
I wish to change
Just to make it last
But I guess it’s been too long

Easy to move on
To forget to about it all
Is that what you do, hoping I will be gone

So should it matter
What I do or what I’ve done
As long as in my heart
You’re still the only one
I hear you say it
But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

If you got to know me again
Maybe then — maybe then
We could see what what we should do
But that’s all up to you
I’ll be waiting for you

So should it matter
What I do or what I’ve done
As long as in my heart
You’re still the only one
I hear you say it

But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

I hear you say it
But I don’t think you understand
I can be trusted now, I swear to you I can

If you ever would need someone
Then think of me
If you ever would need someone
Then think of me

Need you ever to love someone
Consider me
Will you ever know your lover cute’s gone
So think of me

I’m free
All good things come to the one who waits
All good things come to the one who waits

Since I never had to fight
I lose easily
Since I never had to fight
I still believe

Patiently… that
All good things come to the one who waits
All good things come to the one who waits

All good things come to the one who waits
All good things come to the one who waits

If you ever would need someone
Then think of me

Lær meg å kjenne dine veie
Og gå dem trøstig skritt for skritt

  • 6 Keep Falling Down
  • 4:58| Lyrics |

I’m all alone in the rainfall
I hear my name call
I look up but there’s no one around

The sky is wild and the wind blows
I’m out my window
Trying to fly but I keep falling down

I will never have that dream again
If I do I’ll just get up and then
Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

I live my life, where it takes me
I’m what it makes me
I get up but I keep falling down
Keep falling down

The blinding light silhouettes me
I try to get free
So I run but I keep falling down
Keep falling down

I will never have that dream again
If I do I’ll just get up and then
Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

And every night I close my eyes
I hear the voices calling
Don’t try to hide, don’t try to fight

It’s only sleep, it’s just a dream
And you’re not really falling
Get up and try to live your life

I live my life, where it takes me
I’m what it makes me
I get up but I keep falling down
Keep falling down

I will never have that dream again
If I do I’ll just get up and then
Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

Sure as the sun will rise
I’ll be there by your side
Till the end of time

And every night I close my eyes
I hear the voices calling
Don’t try to hide, don’t try to fight

  • 7 Better Off Alone
  • 4:43| Lyrics |

Girl don’t be sad
You know what you’re missing
No reason to feel bad
He don’t mean much with his kisses
you’re gonna make it through
You have always been surviving
I’ve got faith in you
And I know you’ll get it going

But you can’t go back
To what it never was
To repossess, what you never owned
But you can’t go back
To what it never was
This is that time, this is that time
When you’re better off alone

Girl don’t you see
there’s nothing more to see there
you’ve got a friend in me
And I will always be here
And you know it won’t be long
Until it’s all behind you
You will meet someone
Someone’s bound to find you

But you can’t go back
To what it never was
To repossess, what you never owned
But you can’t go back
To what it never was
This is that time, this is that time
When you’re better off alone

Even alone at night
You will be all right
you’re so strong? you will get over him
And there will be times
That I’ll expect these lies
Not to comfort? but remind you

But you can’t go back

  • 4:20| Lyrics |

Mama, how do I begin
To explain this situation we’re in?
Angels heard the beautiful words that you prayed
And showed me the way to you

And they knew you were in love
So they sent me down from heaven above
Angels cried and kissed me goodbye, I was long gone
This is my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

When your fingers touch my skin
And you kiss my lips and tickle my chin
I breathe you in, oh Mama, I’m where I belong
This is my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

Oh, one day I will be grown
And I know, I’ll have a child on my own
Remember me this way, ’cause some day
I’ll be long gone, singing my song to you

Oh, my song could never be
As sweet as the song you sing to me
Oh, my love could never be
As deep as the love you give to me

Here I am, on my own again
All alone but not afraid
Here I stand, nowhere near the end
Time to go a different way

Cause another day will come to those who dare
Believe in something new

When you follow your shining star
Leave all your fears behind
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say – one day

When you’re down, and you haven’t found
Where you think you want to go
Do you search for higher ground
Deep inside you really know

Cause another day will come to those who dare
Believe in something new

When you follow your shining star
Leave all your fears behind
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say – one day

I know it’s hard to leave
The future seems so far away and
Believe that all you need will come to you – one day

Follow your shining star
Leave all your fears behind
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say
You will find love no matter where you are
And all your heart will say – one day

  • 1 Prince Igor
  • 4:24| Lyrics |

Warren G. top dog
Patrolling the beach
Riggers say they hard as bricks
But they soft as a peach
Climbin the G of all G’s
Please
I come blowin through like the breeze
Sitting on the threes
Post it coast it and mash it down
Pacific coast in the bomb chrome rims
Black on black Yukon
With nuts hangin from the city
Where the bangers be bangin
It don’t seem like shit is changin
I hollered at a homey the other day
G’d up at the park
Sippin Alisay
One of the homies took a beatin
So now we’ll start to be a gang
Checkin at the meetin
Life cycles repeatin
It’s just another sunset fall and see
I can hear the homies that pass
Calling me
And you know what I discover
What they keep sayin
Keep your mind and your money
Motherfuckers
And shake busters

Uletaj na kryl’jach vetra
Ty V kraj rodnoj, rodnaja pesnya nasha
Tuda gde my lubya svobodno peli
Gde bylo tak privol’no nam s toboju

Have you ever sold millions
But yet you niggas persist to talk shit
Get off my dick
Ya never catch me slippin
Rollin with the heat
Slap the clippin
I never thought the world
Would start trippin
My life’s a though
Hit the crypto
Blow the whistle
They think I bang
So I pack a pistol
Warren to the G. is a G.
I don’t fuck with you nigga
So don’t fuck with me
Let’s ride to the East Side
Slide like a fo
I pack a 44
When I’m steppin out dough
To the bang to the boogie
If I speak then I spoke
Warren G. you do it every time
Till ya low
Get the party lit
Like blazin smoke
The East Side of the beach
West side of the coast
You know the niggas that arrive
With hogs
Attack dogs
To say niggas are down to die

Uletaj na kryl’jach vatra
Ty why kraj rodnoj, rodnaja pesnma nasa
Tuda gde my lebja svobodno peli
Gde bylo tak privol’no nam s’toboju

Who’s the man
I’ve been from London to Japan
Stomp land to land
And to the Egyptian sands
You can’t check me
Disrespect me
Ya mock me up
With the bass bumping out my truck
And all these police tryin to lock me up
Money rules the world
And I made the loot
So don’t make me shoot
Cause trying to match’ll get you down
Every time
I ain’t trying to hurt nobody
But I’m down for mine
Biatch

Money over power
Power over money
Money over power
Power over money
Money over power
Power over money
Money over power
Power over money
Money over power
Biatch biatch

Uletaj na kryl’jach vatra
Ty why kraj rodnoj, rodnaja pesnma nasa
Tuda gde my lebja svobodno peli
Gde bylo tak privol’no nam s’toboju

Uletaj na kryl’jach vatra
Ty why kraj rodnoj, rodnaja pesnma nasa
Tuda gde my lebja svobodno peli
Gde bylo tak privol’no nam s’toboju

  • 1 Innerst i sjelen
  • 3:58| Lyrics |

Innerst i sjelen
Stiger landet frem:
En blank og gylden stripe land
Som en gang var mitt hjem

Skogene av stillhet
Stiene som går
Gjennom lyng of åkerland
Til havet utenfor
Lyd av vind og drømmer
Lukt av jord og hav
Ryggene som retter seg
Når stormen bøyer av…

Innerst i sjelen
Hvisker det hver kveld
Om et skjult og annet land
Som en gang var meg selv

Havet blir tilbake
Dønningene slår
Timeslag på timeslag
Mot landet utenfor
Restene av minne
Og skyggene av en sang
Blander seg med jord og himmel
I hver solnedgang

Innerst i sjelen
Skjelver det en klang
Fra et annet landskap
Som var meg en gang

Innerst i sjelen
Stiger landet frem:
En blank og gylden stripe land
Som en gang var mitt hjem

Instr. solo. mod

Innerst i sjelen
Hvisker det hver kveld
Om et skjult og annet land
Som en gang var meg selv

Innerst i sjelen
Stiger landet frem:
En blank og gylden stripe land
Som en gang var mitt hjem

  • 2 Vakn opp, min sjel
  • 4:48| Lyrics |

Våkn opp og slå på dine strenger,

syng meg en deilig morgesang.
Min sjel du må ei dryge lenger,
gjør med din takk en himmelgang.
Treng inn i himlens stjerneborg,
og gjem så lenge verdens sorg.

La jesus, nå ditt lys få skinne
i meg, at jeg som lysets barn,
meg ikke lar av verden blinde
og føres inn i Satans garn!
Rettferdighedens sol er du,
som fyller hjerte, ånd og hu.

Jeg aldri vil på verden bygge
om lykken enn vil med meg stå,
men som min dag tar til å rygge,
vil jeg mitt hjerte minne på:
At glasset rinner, tiden går,
og evigheten – forestår

  • 3 Se ilden lyse
  • 4:23| Lyrics |

Gå mot det lyset som flammer i nord
Gå til det landet hvor trollene bor
Der hvor alle er venn
Med vinteren

Gå mot den fremtid du vet du kan få
Gå mot den himmel som drømmen kan nå
Gå den bratteste vei
Jeg går med deg

Gi meg glede når vi er sammen
Lån meg din hånd når jeg går meg vill
Hvis jeg fryser gir du meg varme
I din nærhet hører jeg til

Se ilden lyse over jord
Se jorden bli en stjerne fager og stor
Som en snekrystall mot himlens blå
Svever den drømmen vi lever på

Nordlyset tenner en flamme for fred
Du er den venn jeg vil dele den med
Når din verden bli min
Og min bliver din

Eg veit i himmerik ei borg
Ho skin som soli klåre
Der er’kje synder eller sorg
Der er’kje gråd og tåre

Der inne bur Guds eigen son
I herlegdom og æra
Han er min trøyst og trygge von
Hjå honom eg skal vera

Men visst eg veit, ein morgon renn
Då dødens natt skal enda
Min lekam opp or gravi stend
Og evig fryd får kjenna

Me takker deg til evig tid
Gud Fader, alle saman
For du er oss så mild og blid
I Jesus Kristus! Amen

Som fagre blomen ydder
Og veks på grornæm grunn
Og opp mot soli brydder
I tidleg morgonstund,
Men før enn dagens endest,
Vert hastig slegen av,
Så mannelivet vendes,
Me hastar mot vår grav.

Sjå, slottekaren svinger
Sin ljå på vollen der,
Og blom og rose-ringar
Til liks med strået slær.
Nett såleis døden valdar,
Han ingen skilnad gjer
På venleik eller alder,
Oss alle ned han slær.

Instr.

Allt eins og blomstrid eina
Up veks ao sljettri grund
Fagurt med friovgun reina
First um dags morgonstund
Ao snøggu øygabragdi
Av skårid verdur fljått.
Lit og blød nidur lagdi
Lif mannlegt entar skjått

Da di da di da…

I skovens dybe stille ro,
Hvor sangerhære bo,
Hvor sjælen lytted’ mangen gang
Til fuglens glade sang,
Der er idyllisk stille fred
I skovens ensomhed,
Og hjertets længsler tie her,
Hvor fred og hvile er.

Hør! Landsbyklokken lyder ned,
Bebuder aftenfred,
Småfuglen før den går til blund,
Den kvidrer lidt en stund;
I mosen kvækker højt en frø,
Stærkt damper mark og sø,
Nu kloken ringer – aft’nens fred
Sig stille sænker ned

Tidin rennur sum streymur í á,

Og hvør ein løta og hvør ein stund
at stóra fossinum dregur:
treigist mitt hjarta, tyngist min lund,
hvar er úr neydini vegur?
Hvør hevur vinur vilja og mátt
at bjarga mær til landa?

Allir eru á likan hátt
staddir sum eg í vanda.
Ein hevur vinur vilja og mátt
at bjarga mær frá grandi;
Jesus kann føra in lítla bát
trygt at himla-sandi.

Go to the land with the heaven aglow
Go to the home of the troll and the snow
Lead your dream by the hand
To wonderland
Go for the future you know you can win
Go for the goal that you carry within
Go where the wishes come true
I’ll go with you

Climb the mountains, show me your heaven
Lend me your hand if I go astray
Life is magic when we’re together
Close to you is where I will stay
You’ve got a fire in your heart
I need your flame to warm me when we’re apart
When the world is dark I’ll share your light
You’ll make my world a star in the night

Love is forever with you as my friend
When I am tired you cheer me again
You’re my force when I fight
This game called life

Climb the mountains, show me your heaven
Lend me your hand if I go astray
Life is magic when we’re together
Close to you is where I will stay
You’ve got a fire in your heart
I need your flame to warm me when we’re apart
When the world is dark I’ll share your light
You’ll make my world a star in the night

Climb the mountains, show me your heaven
Lend me your hand if I go astray
Life is magic when we’re together
Close to you is where I will stay
You’ve got a fire in your heart
I need your flame to warm me when we’re apart
When the world is dark I’ll share your light
You’ll make my world a star in the night
You’ll make my world a star in the night

  • 2 The Gift Of Love
  • 4:09| Lyrics |

You ask me what I want.
You ask me what I need.
It’s nothing you can buy.
My heart’s not ruled by greed.
I don’t love a diamond.
Diamond’s you see through.
I want you to hold me.
I want you to be true.

Give me the gift of love.
Look me in the eyes.
Say I’m the one you’re dreamin’ of.
That’d be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
in the light of the day,
in the dark of night.

Like the colors of the sun,
the feelings in your heart.
It’s all I want from you.
And when the sky is dark
I’ll have you beside me.
Who could ask for more?
I’ll just wear a smile
when you walk in the door.

Give me the gift of love.
Look me in the eyes.
Say I’m the one you’re dreamin’ of.
That’d be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
in the light of the day,
in the dark of night.

Give me the gift of love.
Look me in the eyes.
Say I’m the one you’re dreamin’ of.
That’d be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
in the light of the day,
in the dark of night.

Give me the gift of love.
Look me in the eyes.
Say I’m the one you’re dreamin’ of
That’d be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
in the light of the day,
in the dark of night.

  • 3 If
  • 2:40| Lyrics |

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can’t I paint you?
The words will never show
The you I’ve come to know

If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go?
There’s no one home but you
You’re all that left me too

And when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me

If a girl could be to places
At one time, I’d be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way

If the world show stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I’d spend the end with you
And when the worlds was through

Then one by one the stars would all go out
Then you and I would simply fly away

  • 4 Breakaway
  • 3:50| Lyrics |

I watch the distant lights along the runway
Disappear into the evening sky
Oh, you know I’m with you on your journey
Never could say goodbye

It’s not the sun you’re trying to find
Something else is on your mind
You need a little space and time
To breakaway

It’s not the place you’re going to
It’s just a phase you’re going through
Though I won’t stop you
I don’t want you to

Breakaway
Fly across your ocean
Breakaway
Time has come for you
Breakaway
Fly across your ocean
Breakaway
Time has come

For you to waken in another country
Greet the morning under foreign skies
Leaving me to face another Monday
It’s not easy to get by

It’s not the sun you’re trying to find
Something else is on your mind
You need a little space and time
To breakaway

It’s not the place you’re going to
It’s just a phase you’re going through
Though I won’t stop you
I don’t want you to

Breakaway
Fly across your ocean
Breakaway
Time has come for you
Breakaway
Fly across your ocean
Breakaway
Time has come for you
Breakaway
Fly across your ocean
Breakaway
Time has come for you
Breakaway
Fly across your ocean

  • 5 Need I Say More
  • 3:12| Lyrics |

Want me to tell you
About all the love that is in my heart
How can I tell you
I wouldn’t even know where to start

There are no words that can describe
The way you make me feel inside
Forever yours
Need I Say More

Who needs the moonlight
All of the stars shining in the sky
They can’t compare to
All of the love shining in your eyes

Oh, there could never be
Anyone else for me
Forever yours
Need I Say More

I’ll be there for you, come rain or shine
Until this crazy world just runs out of time
So don’t you ever doubt it
I couldn’t live without you
One single day of my life

Don’t you know
There’s nothing left to understand
Dim out the lights and take my hand
Need I say more

Need I say more

 

Songwriters: Allan Rich/Lou Pardini/Victor Cook

  • 6 Dream A Little Dream Of Me
  • 3:26| Lyrics |

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper “I love you”
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say “Night-ie night” and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading, but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading, but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

  • 7 Moonlight
  • 3:40| Lyrics |

Lights are down
Soothing sounds
Moonlight on my bed
Words that you just said
I need you

Lost in time
You are mine
Ever so sincere
Whisper in my ear
Close to you

No one knows what we both have discovered
Ever yearning with wishes so clear
No one knows only me and my lover
You and I we are one and so near

Come and let us fly
Warm July
Dreams of shifting sand
Let me touch your hand
I need you

No one knows what we both have discovered
Ever yearning with wishes so clear
No one knows only me and my lover
You and I we are one and so near come and let us fly

  • 8 Here, There and Everywhere
  • 2:38| Lyrics |

Here, making each day of the year
Changing my life with a wave of her hand
Nobody can deny that there’s something there
There, running my hands through her hair
Both of us thinking how good it can be
Someone is speaking, but she doesn’t know he’s there

I want her everywhere
And if she’s beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share
Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I’m always there

I will be there
And everywhere
Here, there and everywhere

 

Songwriters: John Lennon/Paul McCartney

  • 9 Miracle Song
  • 4:21| Lyrics |

All my life I’ve been a kind of lonely
Searching high and low looking for my way
And all at once I saw you right in front of me
I know that there and then
My lonely days were through

You’re just a rose
That shimmers in the sun
And now I know my life has just begun
You are the sweetest thing that could ever, ever be
And you’re a miracle to me

You fill my life with tenderness and harmony
I never thought that I would be laughing once again
You fill the room with something warm and wonderful
I can’t imagine life
Without your precious love

You’re just a rose
That shimmers in the sun
And now I know my life has just begun
You are the sweetest thing that could ever, ever be
And you’re a miracle to me

Rivers bend, rivers flow till the end of time
They keep flowing through eternity
Take me there, sail away
Take me to the sea
You’re a river that flows inside of me

You’re just a rose
That shimmers in the sun
And now I know my life has just begun
You are the sweetest thing that I’ve ever, ever seen
And you’re a miracle to me
And you’re a miracle to me
