...and flowers

fill the floor

Save me
In my darkest hour
Hold me
Never let me go

Show me 
Like there’s no tomorrow
Know me
When I don’t know myself

Faces all around me
The walls are closing in
Running from the voices in my head
Reconciliation
Where do I begin?
How can I escape the fire in my bed?

I read the scriptures
The writing on the wall
A hundred times or more
I paint a picture
That no one has seen before
…and flowers fill the floor

Hear me
My voice is just a whisper
Steer me
When I can’t find my way

Answer when I’m calling
Have mercy on my soul
Let me be the one to tell the tale
Everything is falling
Down the rabbit hole
How can I escape the hellhounds on my trail 

I read the scriptures
The writing on the wall
A hundred times or more
I paint a picture
That no one has seen before
…and flowers fill the floor

She said, You´re Not Alone

 

It´s ok to pull the curtains down
Ok not answering the phone
It´s ok to leave without a sound
She said, You´re not alone

It´s ok to lose the grip sometimes 
Ok to flee the combat zone
Being you, it´s not a crime
She said, You´re not alone

When the autumn leaves are falling
And darkness hides a heart of stone
I recall I heard a blackbird cry
She said, You´re not alone
She said, You´re not alone

It´s ok to let the feelings out
Ok to let the scars be shown
It´s not a sin, to live in doubt
She said, You´re not alone

When the autumn leaves are falling
And darkness hides a heart of stone
I recall I heard an angel sigh 
She said, You´re not alone
She said, You´re not alone

She´s the autumn leaves that are falling
A glimpse of diamonds in the snow 
She´s the stars that fill the evening sky 
To show, You´re not alone
She said, You´re not alone

She spent her life in joy and pride
So shed no tear upon a stone
She will always be there by your side
To show, You´re not alone
She said, You´re not alone

Revelation

 

Hey Johnny, talk to me

Say what’s on your mind

I’ve seen that look somewhere before

The haunted hurting kind

Hey barman, bring the wine

My friend is tired and worn

No stories told

When throats are sore

And memories forlorn

 

I hear you had a dream

A nightmare some might say

Trapped inside a prison cell

No chance to get away

Hey Johnny, talk to me

Why you look so pale?

Did you see what´s yet to come?

What hides behind the veil?

 

Hey Johnny, let me read

Those letters in your hand

I heard you’re good with words

But sometimes hard to understand

Hey barman, lock the place

There are bikers at the door

The fourth, the last, the thin white duke

A man you can´t ignore

 

You claim you had a dream

When earthquakes filled the land

Seven seals and three times ten

The silence of the lamb

Hey Johnny, talk to me

Let me hear your tale

The tidings of what lies beyond

What hides behind the veil?  

  

Hey Johnny

Is it true?

Did You see the king?

At his throne in Graceland

Oh lord, that man could sing

Hey barman, hear that sound?

Like trumpets fills the air

We better stay inside tonight

A hailstorm’s drawing near

 

They say you saw someone

Fallen from the sky

Riding in his red corvette

Made all the angels cry

Hey Johnny, talk to me

I’ll follow in your trail

Let me see what you have seen

What hides behind the veil?

 

Hey Johnny, tell me now

Did you see my name?

Written in the book of life

Or stranded here in shame?

Hey barman, bring the wine

And join us in our feast

The Super Bowl is on tonight

It´s Mike against the Beast

 

How come, you hang around?

Still waiting on your friend?

He’s doing time with Mark and Paul

You´ll meet him in the end

Hey Johnny sing to me

A song that will prevail

About the life that lies ahead

and hides behind the veil 

For Currents and the Tide 

m lost, said the young boy
Tell me, my brother
Tell me, my brother
Remind me there is a way


Beyond the horizon
Show me, my brother
Show me, my brother
A path to yesterday

I´m cold, said the young boy
Hold me, my brother
Hold me, my brother
I can´t make it on my own


Beyond the horizon
Tell me, my brother
Tell me, my brother
I´ll never walk alone

Eight bells and quarters
Uncharted waters
Burning bridges left behind
For currents and the tide
Sons and daughters
Cold and mighty waters
The road ahead is undefined
For currents and the tide

I´m scared, said the young boy
Don´t lie to me, brother
Don´t lie to me, brother
You said You´d find a way


Beyond the horizon
Oh why tell me, brother
Oh why tell me, brother
I´ll die a castaway 

The Silence Left Behind

Everything is black and white
In the silence left behind
I still hide from the truth 
from a call that had to come

Hard to tell what is wrong or right
In the silence left behind
It´s like everything died
But my heart beats like a drum

A thousand stories 
Linger on
And in my mind
You´re never gone

In the absence of your smile
I break down for a while
And I find it hard to breath
In the silence left behind
In the chaos and the void
I am shattered and destroyed
How can I find peace of mind
In the silence left behind

I can hear your voice so clear
In the silence left behind
We still talk about news, about life 
and the books to read
A living room with an empty chair
In the silence left behind
So alike you and I
Even times we disagreed

A thousand stories 
Linger on
And in my mind
You´re never gone

In the absence of your smile
I break down for a while
And I find it hard to breath
In the silence left behind
In the chaos and the void
I am shattered and destroyed
How can I find peace of mind
In the silence left behind

You are always on my mind
In the silence left behind

When We're

Too Old to Run

 

First ray of light
A blanket made for two
The vanishing of night
There’s me and there is you
Nothing is new
Under the Sun
When we're too old to run

Road marks of white
Highway 65
No taillights in sight
I need to feel alive
Nothing left to do
When all is said and done
And we’re too old to run 

And all the fights we never won
And all the pain to love someone
Will we regret the things we’ve done?
When we are too old to run
And all the dreams not made for us
And promises that turned to dust
Will we regret the things we’ve done?
When we are too old to run

The nights that gone by
The days that end in “why”
The moments of joy
Much more than meets the eye
The road lies ahead
Until the is none
And were too old to run

And all the fights we never won
And all the pain to love someone
Will we regret the things we’ve done?
When we are too old to run
And all the dreams not made for us
And promises that turned to dust
Will we regret the things we’ve done?
When we are too old to run

All the things we never said
The nights apart 
The empty bed
Echoes in my head

The eyes in the glass
Looking back at me
Reminds me of him
The boy I used to be
Where are you now?
What have you become?
Are you too old to run?

Beacon of Light

 

Another time, same mistakes

My bad again

In your eyes

I hide, I fall

Another sigh, another face

So sad again

Only You

Can tear down my wall

I didn’t mean to hurt You so

I didn’t want to see you go

 

Like a beacon of light

In the still of the night

It’s true, no one can save e but you

When I can’t find the way

To keep my demons at bay

It’s true, no one can save me but you

 

I can’t hide from what I am

No apologize

I want You I need You

But no words comes out

You step aside, don’t give a damn

It´s in your eyes

You want to, You need to

But still You doubt

If You saw the frown behind the smile

You´d pull me back from my exile

Circus

My life is a circus

So high above the ground

I walk the tightrope

Afraid to look down

Are you my saviour?

The one to risk it all?

I want to know before I fall

 

My life is a circus

A clown with broken heart

I make the children happy

Inside I fall apart

Are you my saviour?

The one to risk it all?

I want to know before I fall

 

At the end of the journey

The close of the day

Will I find you there?

And when leaves fill my pathway

And all fades to grey

Will I find you there?

 

My life is a circus

I´m always on the run

Tonight I sleep with lions

I count them one by one

Are you my saviour?

The one to risk it all?

I want to know before I fall

Life on Mars

Learn to fly

Let me see the treetops from the sky

Say goodbye

It all began as Orville left the ground

So simple, yet profound

We’ll never turn around

 

We are the ones, we learned to sail the oceans by the stars

We are the ones, we walked the moon and now we search for life on Mars

That’s who we are

 

You and I

Sending out a message from the sky

No reply

Lost in time and nowhere to be found

We’re at the speed of sound

No way to turn around

 

Out there a tin can

And the face of Major Tom, passing by

It’s such a lonely place to live

and die
