Girl by the river 

There's a breeze gentle whispering as she went for a swim

In the river by her home, in the country up north

Her raven black hair came alive in the stream

In the crystal clear water she looked like a dream

Ref.

The girl by the river is blessed by nature

She's like a fire on a frosty morn.

Her beauty's stunning like the blooming heather

She's pure as the honey from the moor

 

The deep river blues run through her veins

As she sing to her children sweet lullabies

Songs she remembers her grandma used to sing

In the evening shadows by the candle light

Ref.

Once she moved to the city, for the love of her life

He promised her diamonds, if she would be his wife

After three babies born His drinking went astray

Their love turned to rust and she blew him away

Ref.

The northern lights on fire. On a cold, frosty night

The grouse is nesting in the morning light

Here nobody owns you That’s your kind of life

When one story’s told another comes alive

 

She sat on her porch and her mind slipped away

‘bout how life is changing through out the day

You wake up as one person in the morning so bright

And you end up changed, in the dimming of the light

 

 

Anywhere

I see beauty in the village church

I see beauty in both death and birth

In the cobalt skies. In the room above

I see beauty in all kind of love

 

In the shepherds eye when he finds his herd

In every song from any kind of bird

I see beauty when the sprout turns green

Where the mountains high and the air is clean

 

There is this carnal beauty in my life

And in the quietness of the sleeping child

There is beauty in one single hair

If you look you find it anywhere

 

In the raging storm. In the pouring rain.

When the snow is deep, with a frosty frame

I see beauty when the rivers rise

As I see it when I meet your eyes

 

 

 

Heavenly touch

It is a heavenly touch. When the sun rises up from the sea

That magical moment is sacred to me

It's bright in the heaven and my prayer is that one day we meet

With no fear, envy or meanness just honesty to feed

 

I know Jesus existed but I'm not sure he walked on the sea

A Mother was proud of her child but afraid of the dream

I had dirt on my hands and I know I never get free

But some one is there and has taken the pain away from me

Bridge

I had one hand of silver and one hand of gold

I traded it gladly for a heart that's pounding of love

Now I feel so much better, and not so iron frost cold

I have my faith and feel that I'm saved by your love

 

There is no understanding in Gods way of rule

So many things out there that make this world oh so cruel

Lost are the sheeps and the shepherd are searching in vain

Have a look for yourself you might find what is lost and insane

 

I'll keep my life simple, but I feel rich cause I know there's no doubt

Your love for me is real and will never grow cold

I stay on the path if I slip you will help me back

I try my best to be strong, on this violent track

 

 

 

Away up in the moutain

I’m gazing out my window

Were Bluebells praise the day

I then recall a story

My mind was swept away

About a family in the mountains

Where life is harsh and rough

How they hold on to their dream

In worship faith and endless love

Ref.

The wind blows smooth as the day run slowly

And you know there is no sin in true love

 

Laurie was the oldest

Her age was 17

A radiant kind of beauty

Dressed in linen from the field

She had this neighbor boy friend

As tall as any oak

They live up in the mountains

Where they breathe the air of God

Ref

The variety of months

Makes every season strong

Springtime turns to autumn

As winter hang around

With snow deep as a man's height

Hiding all the creeks.

Away up in the mountain a young couple touching cheeks.

Ref

Through rough and hungry hours

They struggle as they pray

Grace and meekness fills their souls

When their fields turn green one day

They melt their song together

Their bond where oh so strong

To survive up in the mountains

You must prove that you belong

 

 

 

Be easy on me babe

Be easy on me babe

Don't believe what you been told

Be easy on me babe

I’m getting way to old

Don't want to bring trouble

In to somebody’s home

 

Be careful with your message

There is a war going on

Be careful with your message

It might to be in your hometown

I’ve been watching your door for hours

And it’s still not break of dawn

 

Don't try to mess with my time

I'm not a person that like to wait

Don’t try to mess with my time

I'm a fool of bad habits and it’s late

If you let me down for a dime

I might be a person you will hate

 

I've been out in the bad weather

I'm as wet as wet can be

I've been out in the bad weather

Never to dry up as you see

I'll wear the darkest leather

The sun won't ever shine on me

 

 

 

Bobs song

A tiny boy so hungry, so thirsty and so cold

Seeking shelter in a café with a guitar and voice so old

There were men of many colours and women hanging round

The song he sang had questions, and told them right from wrong

REF.

The train started rolling. The wheel started humming

The times they where a changing

And he had to travel on

 

An electric lightning rocked the stage as the ghost like man appears

The crowd could not believe the sound that hit their ears

They called him a betrayer, a rotten man who dared

But nothing seems to mind him

He didn’t seem to care

REF.

A crazy way of living. Take too much of a man.

He crashed and fell, then disappeared

Became a family man

But his gypsy soul hunted him like a hobo on the run

In a restless night he went on the train and was on the road again

REF.

The train entered the station. In the front there stood a priest

His songs about salvation, it felt like a disease

He got the nerve to tell you that you got to take a stand

Either the lord will save you, or the devil will take your hand

REF.

There’s a man on the platform  Where the train stops to rest

He’s looking at the world. He’s gotta hole in his chest

Cause he gave us his heart, in every song that he wrote

Still curios he is. It’s imprinting every note

 

 

 

Denise, Denise

There’s a woman living up there. Close to the borderline

Her breath is sweet as candy but there’s fire in her eyes

Ref

Denise, Denise. Do you remember me?

When I hear your voice a calling. I’ll climb your tall oak tree

 

The tattoo on your back. It shaking as it rolls

The passion in that message. It is pure rock’n roll

Ref.

Your cooking is beyond compare. You stir that boiling pot

The seasoning and the mixture, it’s like you, steaming hot

Ref.

The temperature is rising when you step into the room.

You sweep the floor with moving hips, wile you’re laughing at the moon

Ref.

 

 

 

Devils threat

In the morning dew I was walking through the meadow with my love.

A man comes riding from the opposite side. Saying lord I lost my soul.

It greaves my heart to hear such pain

My darling girl did shout

Without his soul his life is lost, in misery and doubt

 

His eyes glow like burning coal, his tongue split and blue

His hood and cape dark as night

Ironed boots of snakeskin to

The coldest wind filled the air and froze the morning dew

Then I knew who he was, why he came and what he was up to

 

I took a grip at my true loves arm and whispered with my voice.

Please let us leave this place of hell. She screams back its God's choice

What do you mean you foolish girl?

Have you become insane?

It's not the way to the glory land

It's the highway straight to hell

 

The man he snarled something loud that I didn’t understand

But my true love started shivering and took his ghastly diamond hand

He dragged her up on his prancing horse with skin grey as rain

I grabbed my dagger with silver blade and tried to hit his vein

 

He snapped the dagger with lightning speed and grabbed me by the throat

I’ll be in the shadow waiting for you. I swear by the oath.

A way they rode as I catch my breath and dried bloodshot eyes

I didn’t really feel a thing except for sickness and disgrace

 

The devil tried to get me, using a woman as a tempting frame

But my fate is strong, in this world so wrong. I never thought he gain.

Suddenly I heard a song, as a soft breath tossed the air.

I raised my head stepped forward, to see what could be there

 

A woman in a silver gown, dancing crosses the field.

I bowed my head and then I knew she was the one for real.

I kissed her on her cheek and bra. She gave me her whitest dove.

Away it flew as I'm walking through the meadow with my love.

Greed

There s something sneaky about this place

Can you sense it from your spot?

This land fed you for thousand years

Now there's nothing you can do

It rumbles in my head as I thought

Greed shown his face on you

Are screaming out their rage

Another soldier took a life

His trapped in some ones cage

Who wants to rule a kingdom?

And invade your country too

I knew it as I saw the news

Greed shown his face on you

Salmon farms in every fiord since long time lost control

We pollute and we plunder as we're hiding from the truth

You wonder how religion became a dirty lie

Use Jesus and Mohammed as a disguise for awful crimes

The beauty of religion are washed in blood my men who rule

You just don’t care about your next of kin

When greed’s all over you

They moved her to a nursing home He'll visit her for sure

But she has to share her room. So no privacy will do

You don't build rooms for everyone

When greed's all over you

It’s blue and fades the night away

More than lies I’ll speak the truth to you

If you dare you’ll be my love forever

Sense your breath, even though I don’t see

Be my guide when I’m lost in the wilder

Shine your light I will never let you go

Still marching to the beat of my own drum

Don't wake them up even though you can

Let the Thunderstorm pass. Keep your wishes from the past

Make them bow down and stop growl at last

No conspiracy or crime

No eternal flame.

Just hold on to her name.

His rubber boots covered with mud

And leave before the dawn

My Morning Jacket

My morning jacket is way to big

Put it on every morning together with my wig

Like a self destructing maniac,

Or a monkey on a gig

Making me scream like a frustrated pig

 

My morning jacket filed up with lead

Have to wear it and it's far over my head

So heavy that my knees rattle and shake

I just long for a timeout as the morning break

 

So much bad influence so many mistakes

Some people out there are acting fake

They build up illusions until they make you sick

And they turn you down double quick

 

My morning jacket got shades of blue

It 's hiding my mistakes and my sorrow too

It's good for protection. On this greasy trail

Where my morning jacket like a home made jail

 

 

 

 

No peace for the wicked mind

There s a restless world for a wicked mind

A look to the left, and a glimpse to the righ

Always somebody out there trying to define

That there is no peace for the wicked mind

 

He sees a ghost in every crowd

And like a rabbit he runs

Afraid of the unknown and the underground

But he don't see his own crime

He is out of time

There is no peace for the wicked mind

 

He let down his love and trusted friends

Seeks the trouble, but hate the end

He says he loves you and believes he's kind

Oh, there is no peace for the wicked mind

 

Why is his moral not equal to yours?

He thinks that it is but it is to obscure

He bet on the white horse that never crosses the line

There is no peace for the wicked mind

 

He can't wake the dead and he's lost on the sea.

It hurts him when he wakes up, and there 's nowhere to be.

Alone in time, lost and blind

There is no peace for the wicked mind

Heavy makeup hiding

Lines caused by pain

In his hands a hunting gun

His factory shut down

will hang my hat and my boots will rest.

In the shadow of the tall oak tree.

I can see the dream that comes to me.

And the river sing and dance its way, from my

eye of hope down my wrinkled skin.

For a thousand years it will float like this.

From that well of joy to endless grief

 

When the leaves of life falling to the ground

and the mother earth will tear them down

When the evening sun turn the mountains red

I swear to God I love you until I’m dead

Ref

Then I’ll take your hand. My lips are cold.

I pray to God please take my soul

Ref

 

 

 

 

 

The ghost of Jealousy nod

As he left your apartment and went down the stairs

Three floors down, and out through the door

He was listening to the words that still rang in the air

The words about abandoned love

 

You’re changing your dress when the season ends

You’re gonna leave your loved ones behind

A tingling feeling when silver bird flies

Someone waits at the end of the line

Ref 

All he saw was his cheek and his neck

At the picture in the frame at your shelf

And he really didn't want to see glimpse of his face

And he wish it were somebody else

 

He closed that door and took to the street

Haunted by demons again

His knuckles turn white as he grabbed his life

His head felt heavy as led

What a tragic figure I thought to my self

As my reflection in the window I saw

A manufactured anger made of unsecured love

Felt the ghost of jealousy nodded

Ref

Nothing lasts any longer than you allow it to do

So take a grip round his feet when he swims

An undisturbed surface might hide dreadful sins

When the disease of jealousy wins

 

 

 

 

The Island of silence

The road was so long, dusty and dry

With shivering legs and no tears left to cry

He was headed for the Island of Silence

 

His clothes were tarred like his soul and his mind

Where did he come from? What’s left behind?

On his road to the Island of Silence

 

A rose as fresh as the dew in the morn’

Calling his name in the town where he was born

But nothing could stop him , his heart rage a storm

Cause he’s heading for the Island of Silence

Bridge

He who had all the money, and wealth of a king

Why feel the despair that sorrow brings

Why struggle for the Island of Silence

 

The rumour said that he lost his mind

When he saw all the trouble made by mankind

He gave up his wealth and mansion of gold

Gave his heart to the Lord above

And went to serve him from the Island of Silence

 

I was sitting alone on a old wooden chair

As the nun and her sisters knelt down in prayer

The monastery bell chimes through the air

As I felt the the mans ghost appear

In his home on the Island of Silence

 

 

 

 

This Waltz For You

Ref

This waltz for you

The kindness in your heart, make the music start

I’m swirling slowly around

My feet they slide when the orchestra plays

A soft, dazzling sound

Ref

This waltz with you. This waltz with you.

I’m dancing this waltz with you

Like when the winter wind meets the breath of spring

I’ll dance this waltz with you

 

Like a branch in the wind. We begin to swing

Forward, backward in rhythm

when I close my eyes, I see cotton like skies

And smell the flavour of Mountain Thyme

Ref

Don’t need the challenge of a down hill dance

Or put my self to the limit of life

Just want to be with you, as the sunbeams do

When they caress the morning light

Ref

 

 

 

 

Tinker Bell

Autumn wind slither me to the bone

I’ve been short of breath since you turned me down

A raging voice roaring from the grown

I can't believe it,

I'm lost and stoned

Ref:

Tinker Bell Tinker Bell ease the pain

Another poison arrow hits my brain.

I could feel it coming like a toiling drug

Take me back to your place and dry me up

 

I couldn't see it coming. I'm much to blind

I only felt the pain when it nailed my mind

I hit the fence in my pinstriped shirt

As old hands folded in the neighbor church

Ref

Six black horses and the undertaker did approach

They put me on a wagon made of pine and oak

Then a roaring Thunder and a lightning stroked

The wagon caught fire I escaped through the smoke

 

Tinker Bell Tinker Bell fly me home

Sit with me on my porch

Just don’t leave me alone

I’m in all kind of wars. It’s so absurd

But what can’t be cured must be endured

 

 

 

 

 

Waiting for you

I can see, there’s a light in your window

Annalie, are you waiting for me?

I ’ ll bee there when the night turn the colours

Then I rest in your arms, Annalie

 

There’s a tree, with apples in your garden

I can smell the sweetnes of the fruit

Oh, your smile, and your coffee in the morning

Sense the breath of your love Annalie

 

Got this load , got this load on my shoulders

There’s a fire, that burns in my chest

And the path, is slippery and winding

Oh, I long, for your home and some rest

 

 

 

 

Weasel

Hey there friends I’ll tell you a tale

A bout a man who just got out of jail

He's fast furious, nosy and hype

Kind of a neurotic type

Ref: They call him Weasel. Sniffing around

Weasel, hunts you down

 

Prowl around day and night

Steals and nicks what ever he likes

If you put out a cake, he can't resist

Grabs it with both his fists

Ref.

I saw him one day popping around

His beard was tousled, his hair was long

He snapped a purse and cracked a brace

You should see the look in that womans face

Ref.

Flashing lights did appear And Weasel set to run

Cop some yards behind him

Try to chase him down

But Weasel runs with four feet And dived into a car

With lightning speed he drove away

But crashed into a bar

Ref 

They dragged Weasels body out

A tiny sound seep from his mouth

His face white as an ermine coat

As he made his eternal home

 

No one there to say goodbye

No family or friends arrived

But that’s the way it usual goes

When you’re a weasel on the run

Ref

 

 

 

 

Your Island 

That smile you gave me when you opened your door.

Made me try to remember if I’ve been here before

Your aqua blue eyes gave me peace in mind.

I remember now what was left behind

 

It was freezing and the stars twinkled

when the frost took a grip round my nose

Your orange scarf kept me warm, glad I borrowed it from you

When we met at the bakery last month

 

We walked together you and I when the sun woke up

I had to return you before the tide rise

You know I can't swim, and you live on an Island

Bridge

I heard about a man who could walk on the sea.

It was a long time ago

Wish it was me

 

Last night I went dry and I will stay sober for over a month, I swear.

Take the train to Chester if you want

It's in the middle of nowhere and I will meet you there

I live there now. There are not so many people around

Bridge

In every crowded place there’s a snake

Don’t bother kill it

There’s always another one that will take its place

 

On which train will you appear

I want to meet you down at the station

I'll wear a wide brimmed hat made of rabbit wool

I'll look sharp and not as heavy as the last time we met

You know, I don't think you ever come back to me

Don't feel obligated to

I'm her and always will be if the circumstances are right

Bridge

The years are getting harder now

Not that I can't cope and I still know how to bake a cake

But I prefer the shallow water and I will build us a boat,

so we can live there on your Island

 

 

 

 

 

Your song

Looking at you through the mirror

Looking at you through your eyes

Nothing I see is abandoned

just longing for a kiss and your smile

 

as I amble in the silver dew morning

And sit on a stone by the camp fire

As I chasing fish in the river

I long for you hand for a while

Ref

Nothing is easy. You don’t change time

The times change you

Do the best of life

 

I can see the dress you're wearing

It’s blue like the Robins egg

I can hear it sing when it pander

Your beauty is beyond my head

Ref

I lay my head on your pillow

I covers your body with mine

No one can steal my passion

i will always treat you like mine
