Tekster

En af mine gode venner inspirerede mig til at skrive denne sang, efter han var stoppet med sin kæreste. Det paradoksale ved parforhold er, at selvom man inderst inde ved det er forbi, er der ofte en gnist tilbage hos den part der bliver forladt. En gnist som ikke bliver slukket foreløbig.

Come on Baby

I guess that you can say you caught my attention
Telling me that all we had is gone
If nothing in the past has one dimension
I still see you the way you were

So come on baby, can´t you see the fire in my eyes
It´s burning from a distance, to get us back into a life
Trust me baby, nothing`s gonna be the way it was
We can´t live on illusions, but tomorrow won´t be one

In your arms, I listen to reason
Why we should take some time apart
Can´t you see, it´s my prison
Where you sentence me to stay

So come on baby, can´t you see the fire in my eyes
It´s burning from a distance, to get us back into a life
Trust me baby, nothing`s gonna be the way it was
We can´t live on illusions, but tomorrow won´t be one

Baby I can´t see, it´s wrong for you and me
Just tell me I´m a fool, and I´ll let it be

Come on baby, can´t you see the fire in my eyes
It´s burning from a distance, to get us back into a life
Trust me baby, nothing`s gonna be the way it was
We can´t live on illusions, but tomorrow won´t be one
 

Denne sang er skrevet på Bornholm, nærmere betegnet Balka strand, en varm sommerdag med sand under fødderne. Utallige bålaftener under den stjerneklare himmel var inspirationen.

Riding High on Emotions.

Every summer when the sun goes down, I´ll be thinking of you
When every heart is like an open chance, it reminds me of you
The grass is greener on the other side, that´s what I used to think
Now I´m left here with my foolish pride, what am I gonna do

I´m gonna ride high on emotions, gonna be the master of the words
Nothing ever seems to make you worried, until it comes your way yeah

I believe I´ll get a second chance, to be seen with you
All I want is just a new romance, while I´m waiting for you

I´m gonna ride high on emotions, gonna be the master of the words
Nothing ever seems to make you worried, until it comes your way yeah

What´re you gonna do when you´re old and grey, waiting for someone to call
What you´re gonna say when they ask you what it´s worth

I´m gonna ride high on emotions,be the master of the words
Nothing ever seems to make you worried, until it comes your way yeah

I´m gonna ride high on emotions, gonna be the master of the words
Nothing ever seems to make you worried, until it comes your way yeah


Grundstenene til "Over and done" blev lagt helt tilbage i 1996 i USA under min rejse jorden rundt. Den er et sammensurium af flere ting: Følelsen af at køre afsted med sine yndlingssange i radioen, samt alle de følelser musik på en unik måde sammenkæder bestemte situationer i ens liv. Når man senere hører et nummer man havde tilfælles med en anden, kan man få en snert af en glemt fortid.

Over and Done

It´s late, and I´m driving away
I turn off the music, but your song is in my head
Here and now, pain is a comfort,
to ease my mind saying – you should have told me
I know it`s no good crying out loud.

Over and done, just finding a way to move on
Voices where you are, saying baby, maybe

You can´t save what´s been taken away
You can´t go, when you promissed to stay
Here and now, pain is a comfort,
to ease my mind saying – you should have told me
I know it`s no good crying out loud.

Over and done, just finding a way to move on
Voices where you are, saying baby, maybe, baby maybe,


D.11. september i World Trade Center var 2 mænd på vej ned af trapperne. De så nogle mennesker, der sad fast i en elevator, løb derhen og prøvede at få døren op. Da det ikke lykkedes sagde den ene mand til den anden:
"gå du bare - du har små børn derhjemme, - så bliver jeg her og prøver at berolige dem". Manden der fik lov til at gå så aldrig sin ven igen. Det må kræve et helt unikt menneskeligt overskud, at give sit liv til nogle mennesker der alligevel er prisgivet,


The Last Goodbye

I wasn´t there that morning, when you were on your own
The walls were tumbling down, everything went wrong
They tell me you´re a hero, they tell me you did great
Put your arms around those who were so afraid
"If anyone got children, I guess they better go
Just remember, to let them know"

This is the last goodbye, there will be so many of those tonight
Here in my heart I know it´s right
To be a part of someone who is still alive

Clever books will tell you, you gotta do what´s right
Put yourself beside it, and the sun will rise
I guess you gotta show it, before it really counts
Still I haven´t seen the face of one I owe my life
"If anyone´s got children, I guess they better go
Just remember to let them know"

This is the last goodbye, there will be so many of those tonight
Here in my heart I know it´s right
To be a part of someone who is still alive

This is the last goodbye, there will be so many of those tonight
Here in my heart I know it´s right
To be a part of someone who is still alive,
to be a part of someone who is still alive


Nogle gange er sindet en stor bedrager. Man vælger med tiden at fremhæve det positive og idealisere noget, der engang (måske) var. Man skal ikke altid stole på sig selv eller for den sags skyld andre.

Do You Think of Me

Well there is something about you thatI could not see
Now you´re here with another, and it´s clear to me
All those days are far behind us now, still something isn´t right

Do you think of me, when you´re next to him,
In those sweet blue eyes is a big surprise

We made everybody talking about the perfect pair
It´s funny we couldn`t see it, always in despair
All those days are far behind us now, still something isn´t right

Do you think of me, when you´re next to him,
In those sweet blue eyes is a big surprise

All those days are far behind us now, still something isn´t

Do you think of me, when you´re next to him,
In those sweet blue eyes is a big surprise,

Do you think of me, when you´re next to him,
In those sweet blue eyes is a big surprise,

Do you think of me, when you´re next to him,
Do you think of me, when you´re next to him,

Do you think of me, when you close your eyes,
Did you think of me, when you stayed tonight


Denne sang er skrevet helt tilbage i 1992 på et 9 kvm stort værelse i Brønshøj på et lille Casio keyboard. Sangen omhandler en bestemt scene i en film om the Beach Boys. Dennis Wilson opsøger på et tidspunkt sin ex-kæreste og får lukket sig selv ind i hendes hus før hun er kommet hjem. Da hun ankommer, sidder han og spiller en sang til hende på et stort sort flygel, og hans fortvivlelse går lige i hjertet.

Baby You Know

Please tell me what I´m doing here, so many years since I´ve seen your face
And yet I can´t forget those moments, you took my heart away
I had to see you just today

You don´t have to tell me that I did you wrong, ´cause baby I already know
All the years I tried to call you, but noone took the phone
And now they tell me that you´re gone

Baby you know, baby you know me well, maybe our love was meant to be
And all the years I tried to hide it, I could not keep it down, now it´s bringing me around

You´re trying not to show it, but I know you´ re scared,
and you don´t really know what´s on my mind
But girl, I´m scared as well, and it´s crazy, we both know this is wrong,
and yet we feel that we belong

Baby you know, baby you know me well, maybe our love was meant to be
And all the years I tried to hide it, I could not keep it down, now it´s bringing me around

Ooh can I stay with you tonight, I´ll just sleep here on the couch,
As long as I´m near you babe, I won´t give up

Baby you know, baby you know me well, maybe our love was meant to be
As time is running out, I hold you a minute, then you´re gone, and then I know where I belong


Dette nummer omhandler en sandfærdig historie om et kærestepar, der engang boede langt fra hinanden. Hver gang de mødtes var det som at begynde forfra igen. Sangen er helt tilbage fra 1991, men stadig en af vores favoritter.

Cathy

I had this funny feeling as I took a step inside,
Like everything we had would fall apart
Ooh I hope it´s just emotions, and nothing´s really changed
Now I´ve travelled all this way to be with you

So tell me that you missed me and things we used to do,
tell me every love we shared is to be found
Ooh Cathy don´t you know, it´s time to let it go, now turn around, and show me that you´re mine

Ooh it´s good to hear your voice again and see your pretty smile
I´ve been waiting for this moment since I came
No more tearing up the reasons why we always end apart
Now it´s time to have the good things while we can

So tell me that you missed me and things we used to do,
tell me every love we shared is to be found
Ooh Cathy don´t you know, it´s time to let it go, now turn around, and tell me that you´re mine

´Cause if I´m gonna leave this heart with you,
I wanna know if it´s really worth a try
´Cause I love you Cathy, don´t ask me why, just give it a try

So tell me that you missed me and things we used to do,
tell me every love we shared is to be found
Ooh Cathy don´t you know, it´s time to let it go,
now turn around, and show me that you´re mine


Won´t you tell them all, Ooh Cathy turn around, and tell them all
Tell them all, tell them all, tell them all that you´re mine
Tell them all, tell them all, tell them all that you´re mine, that you´re mine
