Track Name: Life
LIFE

1
Life’s full of song - make it sound
Listen to your words - and let them out
Deep within, speak with them

Mind full of hope, don’t make it numb.
So many ways to have real fun.

Breathe within, peace within,

There’s no savior that is coming.
We’re the one’s in play, we win or loose.
no lala-land of milk and honey,
If we really want to live we need to choose LIFE

2

Child full of hope don't shut it out
Listen to it's words and make it count

Breath for them! Peace for them…

B

There’s no savior that is coming.
We’re the one’s in play, we win or loose.
no lala-land of milk and honey,
If we really want to live we need to choose LIFE

C

Deep in the night, hold on tight to your dreams
Put into earth your gift to the world and believe
You are the light, you can shine brighter

3. Child full of hope, don’t shut it out,
Listen to it’s heart and make them count


Speak with them, peace for them

B

There’s no savior that is coming.
We’re the one’s in play, we win or loose.
no lala-land of milk and honey,
If we really want to live we need to choose LIFE

C

Deep in the night, hold on tight to your dreams
Put into earth your gift to the world and believe
You are the light, you can shine brighter
Track Name: The Man with the Child in his Eyes
I hear him,
Before I go to sleep,
And focus on the day that's been,
I realize he's there,
When I turn the light off,
And turn over,
Nobody knows about my man,
They think he's lost on some horizon,
And suddenly I find myself listening,
To a man I've never known before,
Telling me about the sea,
Oh his love is to eternity.

Oh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes,
Oh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes

He's very understanding and he's so,
Aware of all my situations,
When I stay up late,
He's always with me,
What I feel when I hesitate,
Oh I'm so worried about my love,
They say "No, No it won't last forever",
And here I am again my girl,
Wondering what on earth I am doing here,
Maybe he doesn't love me,
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Oh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes,
Oh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes

Lyrics and TRANSLATION:

Spännande ängen, levande skog
ADVENTUROUS MEADOW, THE WOODS ARE ALIVE
mormor's mat, mormor som log
GRANDMA’S FOOD, GRANDMA’S SMILE
älskade vinden fullt av spel och under
BELOVED ATTIC, FULL OF GAME AND WONDERS
blicken ut på Siljan...
THE VIEW UPON THE LAKE SILJAN…
så många vackra stunder...
SO MANY BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS…

Här finns mitt barndom, här finns min själ.
THIS IS WHERE MY CHILDHOOD RESIDES, HERE LIVES MY SOUL
mitt inre fönster jag känner så väl.
MY INNER WINDOW THAT I KNOW SO WELL
tiden går och minnen följer efter
TIME GOES BY AND THE MEMORIES FOLLOW
och språket är som sången, som sången!
AND THE LANGUAGE IS LIKE SINGING, IT’S LIKE SONG!
Track Name: Komm Her
Komm her

Alle Reisen in die unbekannte Welt,
alle Abenteuer, all die fernen Länder ungezählt.
Alle Leute auf dem Weg zum grossen Glück, sind selber Wanderer wie ich, wir hören das Schicksal rufen:

Komm her und seh was es wirklich ist, Komm her und lieb dich wie du bist, komm her! Was ist die Wirklichkeit, alles was ich habe hab ich ihr geweiht, (Komm her) niemand der 's besser weiss, Liebe kennt keine Zeit Es gibt nichts zu verstehen, alles was ich liebe lasse ich dich sehen.
Rap
Niemand der es besser weiss, niemand kann die Zeit befreien
Niemand kann sein Leben ganz sehen, niemand kann alles verstehen,
und wir brauchen nicht alles zu sehen
Niemand der der Wahre sein muss, und niemand der zu schlau ist für den allergrössten Trugschluss, Hast du heute schon in das Licht geschaut,
Ja ich weiss ich weiss, ich weiss, dass ich nichts weiss

Vox
Ich will weiter ich zieh weiter durch die Welt Alle Abenteuer all die fernen Länder ungezählt, ich traf dich auf meinem Weg zum grossen Glück, wie sind beide Wanderer Und wir wissen dass wir beide Liebe suchen und wir rufen:

Komm her seh was es wirklich ist, Komm her, komm lieb dich wie du bist Komm her was ist die Wirklichkeit, alles was ich habe hab ich ihr geweiht, (Komm her) niemand der's besser weiss (Komm her) Liebe kennt keine Zeit, (komm her)

ich weiss nicht was du brauchst, aber alles was ich will ist das du mich anschaust, und wenn ich dich so anseh seh ich ich dich auch
Und wenn du mich so ansiehst seh ich dich auch, ja ich seh dich auch auch auch

Rap

Und wenn ich mich in deinen Augen sehe, und hinein in diesen Spiegel gehe, dort wo Zeit und Raum vergessen sind und ich mich endlich wiederfind, nach langer, weiter Reise, dann spüre ich die leise Tiefe, von der ich dachte, sie schliefe, hinter Schloss und Riegel.

Komm her

Komm her
Ich habe soviel schon hinter mir
Alles was ich bin das zeig ich dir
Alles was du bist traue ich mich zu sehen
Nichts von alledem brauchen wir zu verstehen

Liebe ist was sie ist
Sie ist das Reise und nicht das Ziel
Track Name: You are the One
You R the 1

(Intro)
Can you please tell me how to Love you
Baby Blue, I hear that Love Has more than one meaning
We speak of dream-beings, gods, pets and super-heroes
Ah how much we adore to be in Love!
spin the fortune-wheel and crave It, claim it, curse it, bless it!

Heaven is just a place on earth
When you feel for a better world
You are the one

I would gladly say you're my light
And I love when you scream at night
You are the one, you are one

Love is to have and to hold, yet
Love is to never be told
You are the one,
Or I am the one,
cause we're everyone

Having to hold on to Love
Feels like it's never enough
you are the one,
And I am the one,
Cause we're everyone!

In love and out of love and again
When you feel there's someone to blame:
You are the one, you are the one

(Solo)
So who do I speak of
Baby Blue, When I say I love you,
Is that the you, that you would agree to?
You see, I'd love to say how much you love me too,
And, you know, just speak for you.
But My words can never be your reality
So
I will never be wise enough to realize what is happening deep inside you, sweet Baby blue!
This is the promise that Love can make:
Nothing but glimpses appearing between the lines of moments, phrases, music, art and literature
Seems like We can only illustrate and invite. There's no possessions, just reflections, and our obsessions

(Bridge)
Having....

(Outro)
Even if I have enough faith in me and you,
even if I desire nothing else in the world
Where can the search for happiness lead,
when I find
I can only be happy because of you, it seems,
Or Happy about you,
or happy when I'm with you
But never substitute happiness for you, Baby Blue,
I can never live for you!

You see, The moment you become the only reason,
this blooming season will change into a long dark winter-night,
and I will hide under the covers and out of your sight.
but Still I want to invite you,
Did you know that Love, Baby Blue,
has more than one meaning?
So I could be you're one and you could be my one...
Track Name: Marlene on the Wall
Marlene On The Wall"

Even if I am in love with you
All this to say, what's it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you

Other evidence has shown
That you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone
And don't talk about it later

Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing

But the only soldier now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing

Marlene on the wall

I walk to your house in the afternoon
By the butcher's shop with the sawdust strewn
"Don't give away the goods too soon"
Is what she might have told me

And I tried so hard to resist
When you held me in your handsome fist
And reminded me of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving

Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every man who's been here

But the only one here now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing

Marlene on the wall
Track Name: Tröstlåt
Tröstlåt

Kära lilla söta vän
Finaste av alla
Du var glad när solen sken
Tårana faller
Ingenstans att gå idag
Ingenstans att vara
Hjärtat stort, men vi är små
Tårana klara, tårana klara

Se på dig, vackert som solen
Se på dig, spegeln den strålar

Kära lilla söta vän
Finaste av alla
Målnen åker bort igen
Tårarna faller, tårarna faller, tårarna faller, tårarna faller

Idag
Track Name: Holler
Holler

Away! Away away! Away, away away away!

Why did you take the light out of my heart?
How shall I find my heart back in the dark?
You left me here, you took the child I was with you.
Now Live is gone.

How come the hot lava, has become a cold grey stone?
That stares into my eyes, and tells me to lie
About it's sad and grey color.

And all I want to do is Holler, Holler, Holler
All I want to do is holler, holler, holler

Wash you words away, wash your mouth away, wash myself away
From you

So
All I do these days is cry and cry
The stone still stares at me but I don't want to lie
You left me here, you took the child I was with you
Now Love is gone.

How come the house we had has become a heap of stones
Our bones are crushed beneath, while we're talking on the phone!

Our love is gone, our love is gone!

And all I want to do is Holler, Holler, Holler
All I want to do is holler, holler, holler

Wash you words away, wash your mouth away, wash myself away
From you

I wash myself away, away from you I wash myself away away now
I wash myself away, away from you I wash myself away away now
I wash myself away, I wash myself away from you now... (Etc)
Track Name: Und Du
UND DU

Ein Strahlend blauer Himmel
Und Du
Ein strahlend blauer Himmel
Und Du
Ich sehe dich - Aussicht
Ich sehe mich- Einsicht
Ich kenne mich,
Ich kenne nichts!

Ein strahlend blauer Himmel
Und Du
Ein strahlend blauer Himmel
Und Du
Und Du
Track Name: The Sound of Goodbye
The Sound of Goodbye

I've seen it before,
It's written between the lines
Our eyes are full - yet empty
Uh, I'd rather move on than watch this ship sink
The sea is too cold and frightning

Before we both jump into the water
And end up lost at sea

I love you - Goodbye
I love you - Goodbye

I've heard it before The sound of Goodbye
So full of song - yet silent
Uh I 'd rather move on, than wait around again
For a love that is not, but has been

Before the circle becomes full
And we're howlong at the moon

I love you - Goodbye
I love you - Goodbye

(Solo)

I felt it before
The distant chanting of voices that know
But can't help me
Uh I'd rather let go than hold on to sand
And see how it runs through our hands

And soon it is gone with the wind

I love you - Goodbye
I love you - Goodbye
Track Name: Bad Taste
Bad Taste



Aha, ah jaja

Aha, ah jaja



I should have listened to the part of my heart, that was free from you

It knew what to do, it knew exactly, what to do



We should have through, before we started

yet I know there was Love when we parted

but maybe it was only mine?

and I might just have wasted my time on you



I was a fool at this point I guess

And I’m guilty of being unwise, I confess

With a Bad Taste in my mouth



For every word I didn’t say it seems I have a debt to pay

but tonight I let it all out

honesty is more important to a soul

than a stolen moment is, I learned that now



While the thrill of the moment welcomed me as a master,

it bade farewell as a slave

a tide-down ugly gnome

and as the magic had faded away

Nothing was left to say

………..



(LAMENT)



I let it all out today

yes, I let it all out today



I let you go, let you slide

but deep inside I never said goodbye

not yet, not yet



(cont.: aha, ah jaja)



I let you go, let you slide

but deep inside I never said goodbye

not yet, not yet



I’m gonna out some toothpaste in my mouth

To get rid of the Bad Taste



I wanna put some candy in my mouth

To get a sweet taste



Aha! Denier

Aha! the lala-liar

(Now you deny that you lied)

aha, jaja, lalalaliar, lalaladenier, lalala La i errr
Track Name: Magic Man
Heart – Magic Man


Cold, late night so long ago
When I was not so strong you know
A pretty man came to me
I never seen eyes so blue
You know, I could not run away it seemed
We'd seen each other in a dream
Seemed like he knew me, he looked right through me, yeah

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"you don't have to love me yet, let's get high awhile
But try to understand, try to understand
Try, try, try to understand, I'm a magic man"

Winter nights we sang in tune
Played inside the months of moon
"Never think of never..let this spell last forever"
Well, summer lover passed to fall
Tried to realize it all
Mama says she's worried, growing up in a hurry

"Come on home, girl" Mama cried on the phone
"Too soon to lose my baby yet, my girl should be at home"
But try to understand, try to understand
Try, try, try to understand, he's a magic man, Mama, ah
He's a magic man

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"I cast my spell of love on you, a woman from a child"
But try to understand, try to understand
Oh, oh, try, try, try to understand,
He's a magic man, oh, he's got the magic hands

Oh's over top

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"You don't have to love me yet, let's get high awhile"
But try to understand, try to understand
Try, try, try to understand, he's a magic m
Track Name: Better
BETTER!

To help me with this can I get a witness
Need to create some peace in this big mess
Right is wrong, wrong is right
No one ever wins in a big dumb fight

Political correctness can be like madness
When all it ever does is create more sadness
deeper now let's go deeper now
Any kind of violence any kind of ignorance
We all have it in us and we all know it is madness
Our madness is our own sadness

Be yourself, be nobody else
That is better so much better!
The easy way out is the easy way down
All is so much easier said than done , when you get political!

Political awareness leads to sadness
No way to escape the inter-human madness
Words can kill! Yes words can kill!

I really wanna help but I also wanna say what I think
When I know how I feel Still
Words can kill! ( I know that) Words can kill!

So Please remind me of, that when I speak love
That it's better, so much better!
Please remind me of, that when I speak love
I feel better, so much better!
Track Name: Peace in the Night
Peace in the night

Like eyes of the love that you want to hold on to
The dreams that you wish they could come true
The silence that makes your heart smile

Turn off the light
And shadows will whisper that all will be fine
Echoes of dreams that are kind
The voices of peace in the night

Dream away because tonight four walls will shelter you
Dream away because you can imagine they come true

Come morning light
The eyes of a beautiful day might surprise you
The world is a room to step in to
With words that can make things allright
The echoes of dreams in the night
Voices of peace in the night
Track Name: Turn on the Light
Turn on the light

Never give up never give up never give into the night
Turn on the light
Never give up never give up never give into the night
Turn on the light

One door opens another closes
Another window shuts another window opens
So

Never give up never give up never give into the night
Turn on the light

I tried to hold on but my hands were frozen
Had to let go to find the path that I had chosen
The light, the lala-light, the lalala-light!

I liked it
The way we used to be
When it was you and me
But we left it
Behind, so now the past, is what we never had.
And know, the doors are closed.

To open.
Open up the heart, and get back to the start
Of loving
Just doing what feels right and
Not pretending to be blind
This time, this time

The past is now my gold, the past is now my gold!

And I know, love is not just a fantasy!
I know it's my own reality
It's the light, the lalala-light!

I liked it
The way you held me tight,
Told me that I'm alright
Adoring
The beauty we once shared
We turned a page and said
That now, the doors
Are closed

To open
Open up the part
protecting our worn hearts
Exploring the ways to find new light
And not pretending to be blind
This time, this time, this time!

The past can not be sold, the past is now my gold

Never give up never give up never give into the night
Turn on the light
Never give up never give up never give into the night
Turn on the light
Never give up never give up never give into the night
Turn on the light
