An open Book

v.

She came with the bus a rainy day

She hadnít been here before

She said that she would like to stay

for a fortnight maybe more

 

With her typewriter in a shabby case

she came running through the rain

I was supposed to close and leave

and never come back again

 

Ref:

An open book

In the wedding suit

And days and weeks went by

She wrote a book

So bittersweet

An open book was I

 

v.

We spent the days together

In the evenings she closed the door

Every morning she came down and read

what she wrote the night before

 

She must have seen right through me

Saw the fugitive clerk

She typed me down to pieces

The boy, the man, the jerk

Ref:

v.

One night she was lost for words

and invited me to her room

The wedding suit so obvious

like acting bride and groom

 

Those hours I was flying

A brief lack of pain

She thanked me for the inspiration

and I never saw her again

 

 

 

DELIVER US TO LOVE

V1

Forced to face the face of evil

I see a big black hole

Emptiness beyond compare

Almost chaos in control

 

Poor souls left with almost nothing

No care to find at all

Search for light in the shadows

Behind a giant wall           

                                                  

Bridge:

Love should be for everyone

Remember not to forget

Nothing isnít nothing

When itís all you ever get

 

Ref:

Deliver us to love

To the harbour of humanity

Deliver us to love

From the darkness of insanity

Though everything else is vanity

Deliver us to love

 

V2

Well, this might be a rough sketch

To tell the day from the night

In hope to get your attention

And to set your focus right

 

You canít erase whatís missing

You canít remove a hole

Fill it up with love and care

The nourishment for a soul

 

Bridge:

Ref:

 

V3

Forced to face the face of evil

Just follow the golden rule

We all have means to do it

Each of us - a perfect tool

 

So just stop a while and listen

Someone might need your ear

A spark lights in the shadow

And the darkness disappear

 

 

 

IN YOUR HEAD

Itís a full time job

Being where you ought to be

Learning to sit

Will never set you free

 

The fashion mob

Is pulling up the pace

The survival kit

So you wonít lose your face

 

Bridge:

Hotel lobbies

Basement bars

Senseless hobbies

Fancy cars

Thereís a hiding place

Underneath your face  

                                                                            

Ref:

In your head thereís an open door

Ring the bell and flee the commotion

In your head on the second floor

Experience a wild slow motion

In your head you can not ignore

The only way and final solution

In your head, now for evermore

Your own successful revolution

 

Itís an easy job

Being where you want to be

Learning to sit

On satisfactions knee

 

The fashion mob

Well, it never was your case

The revival kit

And you are back in the race

 

Bridge:

City lights

Plastic ladies

Wrongs and rights

Lotís of maybes

Thereís a hiding place

Underneath your face

Ref: outÖ

 

 

BROKEN TO PERFECTION

V1.

Itís that old nasty feeling of uncertainty

In a world that always asks for control

Can I come to terms with my destiny

And climb that slender thread to be whole

 

Itís that tiny teasing piece of knowledge

Youíve been there - pleading never again

You know itís always out there to get you

Itís really just a question of when

 

Bridge:

Somewhere down the road I was pushed out of balance

Now Iím looking out for rocks on the road

Somewhere down the road I learned the hard way

So I do my best to carry the load

 

Ref:

Broken to perfection

Need to know where Iím going

Broken to perfection

Iíve learned to seize the day

Broken to perfection

Feel the winds Ė where they blowing

Broken to perfection

Thatís why you see me sway

 

If anything is perfect

It was broken yesterday

 

V2

What goes down must always rise again.

Just a little brighter than before

Come what may we must all be Phoenix

Whatever tomorrow has in store

 

But I mind my steps to avoid the ashes

Iíve been there Ė pleading never again

I know itís always out there to get me

But I walk the sunny side until then

 

 

Bridge:

Somewhere down the road I was pushed out of balance

Now Iím looking out for rocks on the road

Somewhere down the road I learned the hard way

So I do my best to carry the load

 

Ref:

Broken to perfection

Need to know where Iím going

Broken to perfection

Iíve learned to seize the day

Broken to perfection

Feel the winds Ė where they blowing

Broken to perfection

Thatís why you see me sway

 

If anything is perfect

It was broken yesterday

 

 

 

World within a world

v.1.

I told you in Vienna

In London and Paris too.

In Amsterdam you smiled and said:

Donít say it, what you do

 

That cold day in Toronto

And the hot night in L.A.

You say - I canít make up my mind

You donít hear what I say

 

Ref:

This is the best place in the world

Canít you see it? Look around

Itís a world within a world

A paradise weíve found

 

This is the best place in the world

Canít you see it? Look around

Itís a world within a world

This is sacred ground

 

v.2.

Remember us in Tokyo

When the sun raised from the sea

Or that crowded bus in Bangkok

Where you first called us we

 

You see itís not geography

Itís chemistry so true

Every time I said it girl

I was standing next to you.

 

Ref:

This is the best place in the world

Canít you see it? Look around

Itís a world within a world

A paradise weíve found

 

This is the best place in the world

Canít you see it? Look around

Itís a world within a world

This is sacred ground

 

 

 

WARM WINTER

V1.

In the cold days of November

in a bar at a ski hotel

I was killing time doing nothing

as the wind swept through the dell

 

My candle flame was flickering

Felt a touch of heat in the air

In a haze I saw her enter

with snow melting in her hair

 

Ref:

Warm winter

She kept the frost at bay

Warm winter

She blew the chill away

She came with heat and light

In my darkest night

The warmest winter of my life

 

V2.

She sealed my lips with a soft kiss

Told me not to say a word

As the moon climbed the winter skies

her thoughts were all I heard

 

Running down the road of rapture

We both knew where it had to go

Itís one of my warmest memories

That magic heat there in the snow

 

 

 

 

Waiting

Upcoming mystery Ė faded by noon

Everyoneís there for the giant balloon

Old mother earth has a story to tell

I was reaching the answer but saved by the bell

Tolling for danger hard to define

We canít see the vigil for the warning sign

 

Was it something I read?

Or something I saw

My mode is obeying

the old Newtonís law

 

Iím just sitting hereÖ

Waiting for something bad not to happen.

Donít know what to fearÖ

Waiting for something bad not to happen.

Futureís not so clearÖ

Waiting for something bad not to happen.

Just sitting hereÖ

Missing the good that will happen.

 

The past and present Ė mixed on the news

Good guys and madmen are sharing their views

Dubious profit by 9 o clock fools

Speak about peace for the people who rules

Me, I just donít know who to believe

Jokers crowd together in every ones sleeve

 

Gazing through pictures

Canít see the light

Words just a puzzle

Thereís no hope tonight

 

Iím just sitting hereÖ

Waiting for something bad not to happen.

Donít know what to fearÖ

Waiting for something bad not to happen.

Futureís not so clearÖ

Waiting for something bad not to happen.

Just sitting hereÖ

Missing the good that will happen.

 

 

 

RESTLESS SWAN

V1.

Sheís got a way with words

That makes me melt like ice

Sheís got a modest smile

Hidden in her hungry eyes

 

Sheís got a secret touch

Sends shivers down my spine

Sheís got a way to pled

Makes me dress her to the nine

 

Bridge:

And in her way to get away, she got away

 

Ref:

But sheíll be back

As sure as the dawn

Sheíll be back

I keep a light on

Just like itís always been Ė I take her kiss and let her in.

Hereís a nest for my restless wild swan

 

V2.

Sheís got a way to ask

Makes me forgive it all

She knows how to make up

And she does it in the hall

 

Sheís got a way to see

Everything (that) I need

She knows how to make sure

That my love is guaranteed

 

Bridge:

Ref:

 

V3.

Sheís got her way to have

some of her funny ways

Sheís got a way to be

Sunshine on my cloudy days

 

Sheís got a way to fly

My little restless swan

Sheís got a way to say

No more drifting off and on

 

 

 

Migratory Bird

V1.

As I saw the morning frost

I knew something was lost

And the chill dawned up on me

I knew I had to go

Her eyes kept telling me so

The pled to be set free

 

Ref:

Just like a migratory bird

I had to flee the cold

The winter came so fast

And I was never told

Can someone tell me when the spring will come

Tell me ícause Iím longing home

 

V2

Iíve crossed seas of sorrow

Yet hoping, maybe tomorrow

The spring will come at last

Far away in distant lands

Caught in agonyís hands

I canít escape the past

 

V3.

The way it used to be

is teasing my memory

But I donít know what to do

I hope one day I will

Chase away the chill

And make it home to you

 

 

LET THE WINDS BLOW

v.

What are you waiting for

hidden in you trance

stop acting like a bore

and join in the dance

 

Thereís a good life waiting

if you just set the sail

Itís all in your creating

and itís yours to prevail

 

Bridge:

You canít be stuck here for the rest of your life

 

Ref:

Let the winds blow

Let the winds howl

Let the winds bring it in

Let the winds fill you up Ė and let it out

 

Let the winds blow

Let the winds howl

Let the storm begin

Let it show you what life is all about

 

v.

Itís time to take the wheel

And reach for something new

Youíd better think and feel

Donít stay stuck in the glue

 

Youíre blinded by routine

Life is steaming ahead

Thereís so much left unseen

Donít end up left for dead

 

Bridge:

You canít be stuck here for the rest of your life

Ref:

Let the windsÖ

 

v1/v2 as v3

Thereís a good life waiting

if you just set the sail

Itís all in your creating

and itís yours to prevail

 

Youíre blinded by routine

Life is steaming ahead

Thereís so much left unseen

Donít end up left for dead

 

 

 

 

Lakeside meadows

V1.

Come with me to the lakeside meadows

Away from the city, beyond the wood

There I have a boat among the reeds

The air is clean and smells so good

 

Bridge:

The meadows are the threshold

To the lake my sanctuary

So far from roaring cities

Out in the glimmering scenery

 

Ref:

Lakeside meadows

Where the telling alders grow

Lakeside meadows

Where the sweet caressing winds blow

 

V2.

Come out with me to the islands

And see the gulls in the setting sun

Hear the stem cut through the surface

In harmony with the engines run

 

Bridge:

The islands are my dreams

And hope floating in liberty

So far from roaring cities

Out in the glimmering scenery

 

Ref:

Lakeside meadowsÖ

 

Stick:

Come with me

If you are lacking adventure

Come with me

If youíre depressed and feeling down

 

We bale the boat and enjoy the treasures

Out on the lake and the landscapes around

 

V3.

Come with me and dive from the alders

Weíll discover the neighbourhood

Late at night we sleep by the fire

To the soft sound of crackling wood

 

Bridge: outro

There is nothing like the silence

In the peace around the lake

When the mist lifts from the water

As the early morning breaks

 

 

 

 

GOOD SPIN (just another ride)

V1.

Just another ride on the planet

Starting up with breakfast in bed

The radio is playing her favourite

No bad news in the paper she read

 

No worries that sheís got to deal with

The black clouds are so far away

Sun is shining, sheís in a good mood

Itís all promising a perfect day

 

Bridge:

Itís one of those days you wish could last forever

Just another rideÖjust another ride

 

Ref:

Good spin

Itís her private revolution

Everything is going her way

Good spin

Itís a local evolution

Such a very good spin today

 

Itís just another rideÖtake another ride

 

V2.

She jumps the bus for a ride downtown

Smiling at the people she meet

Dancing through the marketplace laughing

People stop and stare on the street

 

Singing as she enters the restaurant

Favourite table crowded with friends

Hugging, kissing, listening to gossip

Good spin. Who knows where it ends

 

 

V3

Carefree lane is silent at midnight

Evening sparkle lights up her mind

She feels the earth move in its orbit

Everyday is one of a kind

 

A clue to give hope for tomorrow

The future is open and wide

The black clouds are now gone forever

Sheís of for the ultimate ride

 

 

 

 

River Of Life 

 (till denna finns ev. musik som vi kan anvšda, eller sŚ gŲr vi ny)

 

A humble creakís purling from mountains high

Swirling just for fun

Jumping and dancing Ė so crystal clear

A glittering play with the sun

 

Taking the bends and controlling the falls

Flees the mother ice

White waterís breaking Ė canít stop it now

This is the river of life Ė of our lifeÖ

 

Ref:

Seeing the river

Seeing our strive

This is the river of life

 

Just like the river

Surface and dive

The riverís a tale of our life

 

Deep in the valley controlled by the banks

Current pushing on

The muddy wide river bound to its strive

Jumping and dancing is gone Ė ooh itís goneÖ

 

Ref:

 

Did its time in hard machinery

Shared some of its energy

Motivated by this one dream

To one day be set free

 

I can see a moody river

Heading for a destined sea so blue

 

Trying hard to break the boundaries

Ploughing deeper in the clay

Holding on to vain illusions

Gather rubble on its way

 

I can see a moody river

Heading for a destined sea so blue

 

 

See the old river now reaching the sea

Carries but one dream

Run up the mountains to play crystal clear

But way too strong is the stream Ė ooh that streamÖ
