LYRICS

TO THE ONES I LOVE

(WIRÉN)

My little heart, I see you´re crying
and I know what makes you so sad
The fear I feel, burns my trying
everytime I loose my head


But what would I be without you
Without hearing your song


I, how I wish I could sing the way you can
I, I should have seen all the colours of your rainbow


An angels cry, burns my trying
and put a scar into my heart
A zip of wine, to shut my demons
I try to rise, but I fall apart


But who would I be….


I, how I wish I could sing the way you can
I, maybe thought that my way was the only way
I, I should have seen all the colours of your rainbow
I, how I wish I could sing the way you can


There´s a bright part in all the this
My father said: there´s learning from everything
Well I learned something


I, how I wish I could sing the way you can…


But Im still breathing, Falcon street is bringing peace
The sea is heaving, and waves are showing life at ease

THE MESS I MAKE

(Svahn)

If I should say anything

anything today

It would be that you are everything

everything I say

One perfect note that hits every single string

In this perfect storm

That is your song

Your sacred song

 

The way the light hit your eyes

in that  fading sun

A sudden breeze filled with distant cries

Cause´ you are the one

 

But when you see me coming around

I´ll be the one who will let us both down

I´ll be the baggage from the story

never meant to be

But I can´t stop, I can´t stop being me

 

I dream about that single kiss

the one that never was

One night held in the sweetest bliss

A dream of poems and awes

And I´ll carry that forever

I carry this and cry

But then you smile

Yeah then you smile

 

So as the year is ending

you kiss him in the night 

another year is pending

dressed in pain and delight

 

So if you see me coming around

I´ll be the one who will let us both down

I´ll be the baggage from the story

never meant to be

But I can´t stop, I can´t stop being me

 

So if you see me coming around

I´ll be the one who will let us both down

I´ll be the baggage from the story

never meant to be

But I can´t stop, I can´t stop being me

 

 

ASK ERATO

(Svahn)

It´s in the way you look            

when the evening is over            

It´s in the way you say hello, that makes me 

act all nervous and drunk

yet completely sober

Thats just the way it goes

The way it goes

The way it goes

 

It´s in the way you smile, when    

talking ´bout the songs you love

It´s in the way make me feel, when I think        

about every single word

how your voice made the evening

Thats just the way I go

The way I go

The way I go

The way I go

 

So ask Erato if my feelings are all wrong

If I keep hearing your song

yeah I might be lost but my temple stands strong

´cause you are perfect by design

 

It´s in the way you laugh

How your notes spark what´s in me

How they force me to obey my senses

I could share thousands of thoughts

on how you break my defenses

That glistering talent that you hold

That you hold

That you hold

 

It´s in the way you are

compared to the masses

It´s in the way you light what´s dark inside me

a short glimpse of what could have been

if I was someone else that is

That´s all I wish I was

The way he is

The way he is

The way he is

 

So ask Erato if my feelings are all wrong

If I keep hearing your song

yeah I might be lost but my temple stands strong

´cause you are perfect by design

So praise the poet and the painters guided hand

And the passion for which they stand

It´s just a totem, a celebration of all things grand

Yeah you are perfect by design

 

 

THE REASON I AM

(Svahn)

 

One smile and a look from your eyes

is enough to ignite

my soul and the songs of the night

watch them burn as I cry

 

Skin to skin behind shut blinds

in a dream, you and I 

hand in hand, a mistake we could find

so sweet and all worth while

 

If I only could be here with you

in a world you´d call me baby

the things we would see, the things we would do

As my heart fits perfect in your hand 

your smile burns every ”maybe”

or putting it simply, you´re the reason I am

you´re the reason I am

 

Never wanted any one like this

Anything I would do

For a chance of that one single kiss

The one I´ll never have with you

 

If I only could be here with you

in a world you´d call me baby

the things we would see, the things we would do

As my heart fits perfect in your hand 

your smile burns every ”maybe”

or putting it simply, you´re the reason I am

you´re the reason I am

and there´s a reason for that

 

But if this is love then I don´t want it

Take it away, if you please 

If this is love then I don´t need it

Take it away, if you please

 

A TOMB OF AN UNKNOWN CHILD

(Wirén)

 

Your heart is slowly slowing down            

You´re almost there now

A bright quick glitter in your eye

One last good bye                

 

Oh, the angels are all here            

To embrace you

Dont be afraid you´re not alone            

 

All you ever wanted to was live your life        

To play with your friends without a grown up fight

And now you never get to kiss a girl            

Your mom will never see your wedding walz

A small coffin weighs more than a large                    

 

On your way home from school today

In the city you love

A laugh from a friend

The sun in your eyes

The last good bye

 

Oh what was the last thing going through your mind

I hope to god you were not afraid

 

Oh what happens to your dreams

When you´re not here

Please let me carry them for you

 

A MAN THAT NEVER WAS

(Svahn)

 

When I hear your voice beside of me

The brilliance of your laughter

Well, I´m not longing for the morning after

 

Your silent smile paints the evening white

And the moon seem so much brighter

It´s the song of YOU, I am but the writer

 

The shortest look set my mind at ease

you feed the sweetest fire

that burns inside, a cup of pure desire

 

Buried deep in its purest form

the light is almost blinding

and the dreams you give they´re so inviting

 

If you only saw the things I see,

the vastness of your being 

you couldn't blame me

for the feelings that I´m feeling

If you ever felt the poets urge

seen a glance of things worth seeing

you couldn't help

but fall for dreams worth dreaming

 

There´s no single hope at all but hey

sweet dreams can make you wander

on sacred grounds from here to yonder

 

When we´ve said goodbye at the evenings end

I dance to songs so gentle

with thoughts of you the night becomes my temple

 

EMERGENCY EXIT

(Wirén)

 

Again in the middle of the night

My thoughts running away without a guide

I cant tell what is wrong or what is right

Just wanna rest my head and for a second hide

 

I’ve starred into the sun so many years

Just to make you see that I can shine

But in the shadow I felt tired and bruised

I Don’t wanna be the one who stand accused

 

So Im walking out the back door

Cause I, I cant handle this anymore

I don’t want another friend tonight

I just want someone to return my love

So Im walking out the back door

 

Im here with my heart between my hands

Just to hope that you can see what my mind cant tell

In my dreams it all make perfect sense

And in the light of the moon I hope you hear my prayers 

 

So Im walking out the back door

Cause I, I cant handle this anymore

I don’t want another friend tonight

I just want someone to return my love

So Im walking out the back door

 

 

DIVINE MATE

(Wirén)

 

There is a part                

In the corner of my heart

Its been dark a while                

But inside it's a meadow, my child

I can see you there, all merged up in my life        

 

When you go there,

You become a millionaire

Of love and light

And fairytales thats mine

The fairytales turned out to be my life

 

And I can see you                

Its oh so clear

It is you and me

Forever you and me                

And I can se eus dancing there

We are one and free

Forever you and me

 

When I see you

I believe that love is true

Its been hiding for me

But inside I always knew 

That the love I Have was all meant for you

 

Love came out with a golden dress            

And healed my heart like an angels call

I fell asleep in your sweet caress

And woke embraced by your soul 

 

SHE´S GOING DOWN THE WATER

(Wirén/Phillips)

 

Im not happy but I wish I was

Im not happy and its, its all because

Its understood, its over

Its all through

End, over

I left you

 

Im not crying but I know I should

In not crying but I wish I could

Cause Its understood, its over

Its all through

End, over

I left you

And you left me

 

She’s going down the water

I don’t even bother

 

SOMEONE ELSE

(Wirén)

 

These are the days                

That darkness dress me in its finest suit

These are the days

When the painting fade out and leaves me blue

These are the days when I need some gold 

To fill up the hole inside my soul

These are the days

When I dont like to be liked in any way

 

These days I am out of my sense            

These days I wish I was someone else

 

Those were the years!

When I woke and felt I couldbq do no more

Those were the years

Of feeling broken hearted insecure

Those were the years when a let you all down

And let myself in a shamful way drown

Those were the years

When I dont liked to be loved in any way

 

Those years I was out my sense

Those years I wish I was somewhere else

 

This is the time

I still have a broken heart disease

This is the time

Some days Im still down on my hands and knees

This time I will try to find a way

Not to follow the path the once left me stray

This is the time

When I try to like to be liked by you

 

This time I am out of my sense

This time I still wish I was someone else

 

WHERE NIGHTMARES GO TO DIE

(Svahn)

 

The nightmares only stop

When I lay myself to sleep

When I dream 

all my ghosts they go away

The secrets that I feel

Has grown so strong I cannot see

A distant song

Never sung for you and me

 

A gently crafted tune 

Made from notes you seldom hear

A different world

A precious place all bright and clear

Behind closed eyes I feel

Your hand, the sweetest touch

My own creation, 

A made up state I miss so much

 

`cause baby I´m all that I can be

even if it does mean that I´m not

the one you wish to meet

the one who has all those things I ain´t got

 

But then the morning makes its way

And refuse my dreams to stay

With fading poems

I rise and curse the day 

The sounds of a crashing dawn

Hurts my very eyes

As life marches

And burn these sweet lullabies
