1. Once I Knew A Boy 1 EUR

Once I Knew A Boy

Once I knew a boy who only made love inside his mind
We had nothing but dreams
That’s all we did
Drowned them in red wine

I woke up next to him one morning and found
a plant growing out of his head
Green leaves on hundreds of twigs
He never saw it with his own eyes
But he felt it, he said

I watered every bud that opened up
flowers in his hair
He heard lions and tigers roaring at night
I fed them with care

And the leaves that got to weak
They scratched his thoughts, he said
So I picked the old ones
Took care of
The yellow, the brown
The dried and the dead

And I think he fell in love with me at times
And I think he fell in love with me at times
He blossomed with me

Once I loved a boy
who only kept me so I could keep him
Did what felt eternal, kept him flowering
So I’ld be let in

I woke up next to him one morning
In a bed of dried out leaves
Damaged sprigs and his withered eyes
Staring beyond me without belief

So I carried his body to my kitchen
Buried him in my flowerpot
Maybe one day something will grow out of there
Maybe not

But I trust in whatever may come
Oh, I trust, as if I’ve never seen
What time can do to a man
What time can do to a mans dream

Oh, this is not the last time I’ll fall in love
It’s not the last regret I’m taking care of

So blossom for me

2. Riots 1 EUR

Riots

Why do they bother?
Why do they care?
The crowd is drowned in spilled out blood

It is not over
We’re halfway there
Like riots before the flood

Now carry these chords home
Carry these tunes
Let them roll out of your bed like a withered lover

Would you fire that gun
Just to get it over and done with?

Well, I won’t say it’s about coming clean
But all I know is that we tip around on our toes
Trying to put our feet down right
And everytime we’re really high up
Oh, so high up
Somebody will always tell us
That we’re not down to earth
That we’re not down to earth enough

So if you don’t mind, why even lay the blame?
So if you don’t mind, why even lay the blame?
So if you don’t mind, why even lay the blame?
So if you don’t mind…

Why do they bother?
Why do they care?
They’re not talking about love, are they?

It can’t be over when we’re halfway there
But so easily lead astray

When you walk me home
Just to keep me warm
Do we need to start a revolution ’bout it?

Got no alibi
But the open sky

Well, I won’t say it’s about coming clean
But all I know is that we tip around on our toes
Trying to put our feet down right
And everytime we’re really high up
Oh, so high up
Somebody will always tell us
That we’re not down to earth
That we’re not down to earth enough

So if you don’t mind, I’m not taking the blame
So if you don’t mind, I’m not taking the blame
So if you don’t mind, I’m not taking the blame
So if you don’t mind, I’m not taking the blame

3. Pyromani (Lek Inte Med Elden) 1 EUR

Pyromani (Lek Inte Med Elden)

Såklart att jag är frestad, går rätt in i din glöd
Vill bli återupplivad fast det kommer bli min död
Säger nej, men söker mig, till blickar som bränns
Du, som jag, har tröttnat, vi behöver nåt som känns

Ser inte en framtid med dig, inte heller något slut
Rör vid mig på riktigt, du vet, inifrån och ut
Vill kyssa dig förlåten, tro mig att jag kan
För tider under jorden, för löften som försvann

Lägg dig med ditt huvud vid mitt bröst
För en sekund vill jag vara den som ger dig tröst
Riv ner min mur eller stanna utanför
Våga är att inte ha nånting att skämmas för

Vem vill inte vakna med kärleken i famn?
Men vem vill säga nej till nästa främling utan namn?
Du talar om förlusten, att rädslan är vår skam
Om att slå förbi en världsbild för att ta sig ända fram

Lek inte med elden, den sprider sig allt mer
Allting som jag lärt mig, kommer brinna ner
Lek inte med elden, den växer med var vind
Dansar utan nåd och förlåter ingenting

Det är klart att jag är livrädd för att komma nära dig
Fast jag vill att du ska veta allt du inte vet om mig
Folk drömmer om att räddas men kärleken är skygg
Att vår mänsklighet är ensam hjälper inte mig ett dugg

Jag reser med mig själv, min skugga hack i häl
Börjar lära känna min själ alltför väl
Jag åker på mitt villkor och stannar när jag vill
Flyger till en annan stad när hjärtat säger till

Så vila just så nära att du ligger vid mitt bröst
Som om jag, och bara jag, kan ge dig tröst
Min klänning kvar på golvet, luften känns så skör
Jag vill känna här är vi, det är ingenting att skämmas för

Så fan för allt vi borde och allt vi inte får
Med ljuset kommer allt förnuft vi slängde bort igår
Så sätt mitt liv i brand och låt det gå utför
Vi blir väl ändå aska den dagen då vi dör?

Lek inte med elden, den sprider sig allt mer
Allting som jag lärt mig, kommer brinna ner
Lek inte med elden, den växer med var vind
Dansar utan nåd och förlåter ingenting

4. Dolinsko 1 EUR

Dolinsko

And the snow has fallen for days
Every morning looks just the same
I’ve been driving through towns no one passes by
To find one that knows my name

I can’t fall for another silent lover
Another that’s just like me
With my heart left under your cover
I will move until I’m free

And I would change my mind for you
I’ld be yours if you’ld want me to

And I would change my mind for you
I’ld be yours if you’ld want me to

Busking ’round the world, found a way
To survive on my used up songs
If I fall out of love with you one day
I want you to come along

There’s no worse escape, my silent lover
I wonder if you’re aware
That my heart lies under your cover
It’s the worst place to hide from you

And I would change my mind for you
I’ld be yours if you’ld want me to
And I would change my mind for you
I’ld come home if you’ld want me to

5. The Untold Tale Of Ikaros 1 EUR

The Untold Tale Of Ikaros

Hey, I’m peaceful like the sunset
Mellow and wise
Keep working the skyline
Blinding your eyes
I fear nobody here
I fear nobody here
I fear nobody here
Might be coming your way, going down

There’s no cloud I can’t fly through
I’ve overcome all your tricky heads
Swallowed the sun
I fear nobody here
I fear nobody here
I fear nobody here
Might be coming your way, going down

Burning wings
I’ve come over stranger things
Melting wings
What makes you think I won’t be alright?

I’ll be alright
I’ll be alright

You can go and tell the tale of me
You can go and tell the tale of me
You can go and tell the tale of me
Let them know I’m free

You can go and tell the tale of me
You can go and tell the tale of me
You can go and tell the tale of me
Let them know I’m free

6. Song For The Winter Sky (And You) 1 EUR

Song For The Winter Sky (And You)

It comes to me every time you leave
When you leave after nights spent with me
It comes when you’re gone
When city lights shine, awaken me
It comes to keep me company, silently

Oh, when the moon is standing still
And you would’ve kept me warm
I can not help feeling hopelessly alone
And may the snow fall over lands tonight
Over you tonight and guide you home

And oh, love
I’m feeling vulnerable right here
Feeling kind of lost, love
How you came and found me here
Came to go

7. 43 Seconds To Hiroshima 1 EUR

43 Seconds To Hiroshima

Early monday morning
Mother woke me up
There were no clouds at all to be seen on that August day
My time had come

“It’s your chance to shine now”
Father spoke with love,
“Little boy, our last hope of joy,
Chosen by the God, the God above”

Dropped me in the air from Enola
800 feet up high
Oh, what a town, I thought
What a lovely town from here,
While falling through the sky

See me make my entrance
Every soul found
Will know my name
Will know why I came all the way
Once I hit the ground

Oh, this morning is mine
Oh, look at your boy now
With my head held high, high
High, like you told me

So keep your windows open
Nowhere you can run
I’m your little boy, raised to destroy
Blasting down like the sun

8. Naked And Quiet 1 EUR

Naked And Quiet

See, we could drink all the wine I have
If you think it’ll set us free
We could wait until this evening is over
But I don’t know what day awaits me
See, you just caught me at a bad time
I’m full of unfinished songs
We could drink all the wine I have
But don’t let it take to long

Feels like I’m running out of my words
Soon you’ll be running out of me
Oh, have you not run out of me yet?
Naked and quiet
There’s nothing left to see of me

There’s a risk I might stay awake
I’ve been getting good at that
And then I’ll be the one lying drunk next to you
While you’re sleeping in my bed

Oh, you just caught me at a bad time
I’m full of unfinished songs
I’ve been in this bad place for quite a while now
But fill up my glass, don’t get me wrong

Feels like I’m running out of my words
Soon you’ll be running out of me
How come you’ve not run out of me yet?
Naked and quiet
There’s nothing left to see of me

9. If You Think About It 1 EUR

If You Think About It

Oh, there are not enough days but there are to many nights
Of to many boys catching my eyes
Save me from all these sins on my hands
Save me from words to dirty to write in the sand
He had cash, a steady carrier
I had a good tan, a few vodkas and beers
We ended up feeling so united and free
Until he had to run home to his family

We unraveled the nights, we slept through the days
Only came alive to the beats Andy played
I remember working hard but staying broke
How Nat, Lou and me got away with funny smokes
He was duty-bound and in such a rush
I had a doubtful smile every time he made me blush
He said; girl, why are you leaving me behind?
And I told my friends that guy couldn’t make up his mind

If you think about it, oh my love
I am all that you want anyway
I’ll let you think about it, oh my love
In the end of the day

“Looking for love” written in his face
Married, divorced, it’s a lonely chase
He said; maybe one day you will be the one
But I was just enjoying my time out in the sun
He said; oh god, when I’m coming, you’re gonna be there
Metaphorically speaking I’m not going anywhere
But once he came (and who to blame?) he had to go again
And wherever he left me I felt sorry for the man

We escaped when we could, one hour or two
Quick in the night, before the sky turned blue
Save me from promises and moments that fade
Save me from exceptions I actually made
He said; it’s here to stay, this feeling of mine
I never finished my thoughts, I just finished my wine
His heart thought of me but his mind refused
And I told my friends, that guy, he was way to confused

If you think about it, oh my love
I am all that you want anyway
I’ll let you think about it, oh my love
In the end of the day

10. Just Another Nocturne To Clear My Mind 1 EUR

Just Another Nocturne To Clear My Mind

So I find myself locked away with my songs

And now monsters roam my mind
It’s alright for tonight

I broke down
For the first fucking time in my life

Since when are you all
Since when are you all
Turning your backs
Turning your backs on me?

And I can not help
And I can not help feeling sorry for us
And I can not help feeling this way

I don’t ask for much these days
Or is it true what they say
I’m no good, this way, I’m no good

I just didn’t think it would be
Enough to keep me away from you

Since when are you all
Since when are you all
Turning your backs
Turning your backs on me?

And I can not help
And I can not help feeling
Like it won’t be okay
And I can not help
And I can not help feeling
This way tonight

11. Kittens In Trees 1 EUR

Kittens In Trees

What if we would tie a rope to the moon, climb right up,
let the wind give us a push?

Sway to lands far away
Over night
It would be like falling without
hitting the ground

And you would say hey, look at that jungle
Could it be the Amazon?
We must be far from home

I would watch your head for you
Spaceships, skyscrapes
Are not worth crashing into

Hold me while we’re off the ground
Hold me until the moon comes down

What if we would not know how to stop
Dangling from the moon ’til the sun comes up

Maybe we’ld end up in magazines
Firemen would have to take us down
Like kittens in trees

And you would say that the world is
a smaller place now, thanks to me

And I’ld realise I’ve got nothing left now
for you to see

Hold me while we’re off the ground
Hold me ’til the moon falls down

Hold me while we’re off the ground
Hold me ’til the moon falls down 

12. It's 6 In The Morning And I Think I Love You 1 EUR

It's 6 In The Morning And I Think I Love You

Lover, light my way
Don’t you dare to leave me here

Lover, light my way
Don’t you dare to leave me here

I’ll find us a house on a lonely cliff
Skylines and crooked roads
Where we can watch the city burn
Smoke rising boulevards
I don’t get the picture while I’m in it
I would leave it for you any minute
For something closer to the sky

Lover, light my way
Don’t you dare to leave me here

Lover, light my way
Don’t you dare to leave me here

Don’t waste your time on half-done nights
Wait ’til i find you there
I have an ego that’s going wild
Sailing off in the air
If I’ld jump right up on it and ride
It would swallow this town alive
And all its heavy traffic
Get shouted down by mine

Lover, light my way
Don’t you dare to leave me here
Lover, light my way
Don’t you dare to leave me here

Don’t leave me here
Don’t leave me here
