Life 04:27
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

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

Västanvik 04:26
Västanvik 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!

Komm Her 04:25
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

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...

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

Tröstlåt 01:28
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

Holler 03:07
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)

Und Du 02:14
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

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

Bad Taste 04:51
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

Magic Man 03:33
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

Better 04:11
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!

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

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
