Stockholm born Anna Ternheim began playing the guitar in 1988, when she was only ten years old. Her biography took a turn during a "year abroad," in the United States, when she formed her first band. Today the singer-songwriter plays guitar and piano and works across a number of music genres, including indie rock, blues, acoustic and country. She continued both to sing and write songs after returning to her native Sweden. Her first released recording, the 2004 album Somebody Outside, earned her Best Newcomer of the Year by the Swedish Grammy Jury. They have continued to recognize her work as singer, lyricist and songwriter with several further nominations and awards, including Best Female Artist and Best Lyricist after the release of her 2006 album Separation Road. Her first release in the U.S. came two years later, the EP entitled Halfway to Fivepoints, a recording that was released exclusively in the United States. Ternheim performs her songs in the English language. A number of her songs have been featured on television shows in the U.S. and in Sweden. She has had songs included in episodes of One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy, Dollhouse and Wallander(the Swedish version). She has released a number of singles and EPs in addition to her four full-length albums. Her most recent release was the 2011 album The Night Visitor, which included a duet with Dave Ferguson. The album did well on both the Swedish and Norwegian Albums chart, reaching the #2 position on the Swedish chart in only its first week of release.

Somebody Outside

To be gone

Leave the body leave the mind
Leave the body leave the mind
Every promise every place behind

I just happen to feel so alone
For today for all days to come
I just wanna be wanna be gone
I just wanna be wanna be gone

Leave the quiet leave the night
Leave the quiet leave the night
Broken feelings of dreams out of sight

Pictures in your head at night
For tonight for all nights to come
Erased for good and always gone
Erased for good and always gone

Leave the city leave the cold
Leave the city leave the cold
Young people far too old

Let me cross a very fine line
For today for a lifetime
For today for a lifetime

Leave the body leave the mind
Let me, leave the body leave the mind
Every promise every place behind

I just happen to feel so alone
For today for all days to come
For today for all days to come
I just wanna be wanna be gone

Better be

Me and you
A better laugh in twenty years from now
With some perspective and dedication
I will find somebody new

It better be someone special
It better be coming very soon
It better be for real this time
Oh I know, it always was with you

You or no one
I hope I'm wrong before I die of boredom
I want more than
Days and nights when I amuse myself alone

It better be someone special
He better be devoted just like you
It better be for real this time
Oh I know, it always was with you
You, you, with you

Friends forever, oh no
Another girl will change your mind
In less than half a summer
So before you fall in love
I wonder when you asked for
Something that I couldn't give you more of me and you
I talk as if it's now but nothing is new

She better be someone special
She better be more in love than me
And if I was your brightest hour
She is now, as far as I can see, see
As far as I can see
As far as I can see
She better be
She better be
She better be
She better be

I'll follow you tonight

Caught by what comes by
I stand alone without a fair chance tonight
Here again by your side when
They turn on all the lights
Yes, I'll follow you tonight

Using white lies if we have to
It's easy to forgive and forget it all tomorrow
I just passed by you, passed by me
My last way out and worst mistake tonight
Lying lips won't say, my eyes give me away
Wont you please turn out the lights
And I'll follow you tonight

I'll follow you tonight
The worst mistake to make
Or just the kind of promise you simply have to break
So please turn out the lights
And I'll follow you to any doorstep, any hallway
With hope of finding more
Not feel shallow not get bored
And find it useless, feeling meaningless
And just as low as I was high the night before

The worst mistake to make
Or just the kind of promise you simply have to break
So please turn out the lights
And I'll follow you tonight

Bring down like I

Forever lasted ninety days
From early march till late in may
Then I pulled out in a day
To catch my breath some place far away

All to say farewell for now
No one brings you down like I
All to say farewell for now
No one brings you down like I

Tomorrow morning set me free
For many nights you'll never sleep
When I'm far from reaching and out of sight
Enough to get me on my high tonight

All to say farewell for now
No one brings you down like I
All to say farewell for now
No one brings you down like I

Forever lasted ninety days
From early march till late in may
Farewell for now, farewell for now, farewell'

All to say no one brings you down like I
All to say farewell for now
No one brings you down like I do

I say no

Lately you've been bothered by your friends
We will disturb you, to make you talk again
We try to find the other side of you
The things you hide, what you dont say

We say no, oh no
We won't let you slip in between
We say no, oh no
We won't let you squeeze right through

We give you second chances easily
We wait for answers, for hours and years
But the sadness in your eyes won't go away
It becomes you, in a strange kind of way

I wonder were you come from, where you've been
What you gain, if you win
When my guess is right you break like glass
And I wonder where, your god was then

I say no, oh no
I won't let you slip in between
I say no, oh no
I won't let you squeeze right through

Oh how sweet a girl like you can be
When she tries
You're changing skin like I change clothes
You're faking it well but it shows

You say, lately I've been bothered by my friends
They need foregiveness
I need therapy, they say
I better lock up well before they come
With their prayers, and loaded guns
Better lock up well before they come
More than ten years to ignore, what they're here for

We say no, oh no
We won't let you slip in between
We say no, oh no
We won't let you squeeze right through

We say no, no no no
Since you fall from every throne

A french love

Mind made up
I'd given all for you
La folie d'amour
By now my mind is clear
You planted all the fear
The doubts, the despair
And you keep my heart on the run
I'm bound to fall in love with the one

Qui ne m'aime pas
(qui ne laisse rien pour moi)
Qui ne m'aime pas
(qui n'a pas besoin de moi)

So we planned a secret rendez-vous
Toute la nuit chez moi
And soon confusion grew
I sadly smiled for two
And his head bent down
And he wore my heart like a crown
And ever since I fall for the one

Qui ne m'aime pas
(qui ne laisse rien pour moi)
Qui ne m'aime pas
(qui n'a pas besoin de moi)

Wall burnt down
You never burned down yours

*** Thanx a lot to Alix who helped for this one ***

A Voice To Calm You Down

By the end of the day
Left only with my godless mind
On my way home again

By the end of the night
A falling star is your guiding light
And the way is not yours to find

A voice is calming you down
Voice from deep down
Open your mind now
Let it calm you down
Keep you calm now

By the end of it all
On your knees or running fast
Either caught or escaping your past
By the end
Who will give you answers
When human senses fail
By the end
Who will give you answers
When human senses fail

Somebody's Outside
 
Haven't you noticed there is someone outside
Looking through our window when we sleep at night
You must not leave me alone anymore
Awake all night worried for

You to be with somebody else
Time to be with somebody else

Didn't I tell you about the dream I had last night
We were both in it and everything seemed so right
When I opened up my eyes he was standing beside our bed
Don't remember the look on his face, but I remember
I remember what he said

To be with somebody else
It's time to be with somebody else
For one to hold and for want you
It's time for you to be with someone like me

Somebody touched me and whispered in my ear
Come a little bit closer there's nothing for you to fear here
So I left your side and followed my own voice now
The window was open but he was gone
And I went back to you

To be with somebody else
It's time to be with somebody else
For one to hold and for want you
It's time for you to be with somebody outside


My secret

Today must have been one of the strangest days
Some would say that you won't find love that way
But the best days are not planned by common sense, by lack of time
You just happen to be where everything feels fine

It's a new secret I have found
It's a new secret I have found

From today I'll change my priorities around
I'm no longer in command, and people say
I'm off solid ground and you're to blame
But they don't understand, people never do
It's confusing, I don't expect them to

It's a new secret I have found
It's a new secret I have found

Today must have been one of the strangest days
I found a place where I could stay
And people say that it will kill me
But they don't understand
People never do, but it makes sense to me
To be senseless, to change my plans for you

It's a new secret I have found
It's a new secret I have found
It's a new secret I have found
It's a new secret I have found

And I'm off solid grounds for you

Shoreline

Ever since I was eight or nine
I've been standing on the shoreline
Always waiting for something lasting
Loose your hunger, you loose your way
Get confused and you fade away

Oh this town
Kills you when you are young
Oh this town
Kills you when you are young

I'm not the boy I used to be
This town has got the youth of me
All eyes turn hollow
From the work of sorrow

Standing on the paving
By the office building
They've got so much to do
Never time for you

We are shadows
Oh we're shadows
Shadows in the alley

You die when you're young
You die when you're young
You die when you're young

Separation Road

*** Thanx a lot to Julija for this one ***

Girl Laying Down

I know a girl laying down
She's sleeping, weeks at a time
And when she wakes up she watches TV
Counting cracks in the ceiling

No, I don't know what she's thinking
So I gave up waiting for someone waiting
Talking to someone staring

I never come around
I never come around
I left her fifteen years behind
Girl's laying down
Never come around

So much for girl staying in
Afraid of beeing needed and seen
She watches the world on a screen, she's distant
And God knows I tried to leave her
'Cause she's got a constant fever

I let it slip my mind
I never come around
I never come around
I left her fifteen years behind

I know a girl laying down
No, I never wasted my time
We have something in common
She's as indifferent as I am

Today Is Such A Good Day

Call me free today
If you see it my way
Time on my side
As well as my mind is

It's not with you for sure
No, not anymore
I intend to stay away for good

It's just a matter how I define
My state of mind
Today is a good day
Today is a good day

Without your company
I have so many holes to fill
At least seven nights a week
Killing time

I still feel fine, I guess
My life was a mess
When I shared it with you
I was lonely
Now, I'm just alone

(Just a matter how I define)
(Just a matter how I define)
Just a matter how I define
My state of mind
Today is a good day

Just a scratch on my ego
I get up in the morning
With a good plan tomorrow
I'll be keeping my mind cold
Until the evening
When the hours forget me
And the waiting awaits me
And the voices of madness
From my subconscious
Singing songs of the sadness

Today is a good day
Today is a good day
Oh such a good day
Today is such a good day
Such a good day
Today is a good day

Such A Lonely Soul

She'll ask you where you've been
You'll be hours late
When you finally come home
She'll suspect something's wrong
Make sure to erase all your outgoing calls

Why trouble her lonely soul
She doesn't have to know
She doesn't have to know
Why tell her
It would hurt her so
She's such a lonely soul
Such a lonely soul

She'll be watching you for sure
Afraid to find out
What she already knows
And she'll try to stay calm
'Cause you'll be so hard to get to
And she's still in love

Why trouble her lonely soul
She doesn't have to know
She doesn't have to know
Why tell her
It would hurt her so
She's such a lonely soul
Such a lonely soul

Calling Love

I miss the common life we had
Monday mornings and quiet nights

Being bored
Feeling fine
Was it gift if you ask me now
I never knew
When I had you

All the same
Whomever's to blame for this
I call love by your name

I take it's no use
But I miss you
Still calling love
By your name

Your worn apartment outside town
I miss Saturdays when your kids came by
It first seemed hard to accept
But who can choose the love they get
I thought I could
You never measured up
Your life wasn't good enough
But who am I to judge you now

All the same
Whomever's to blame for this
I call love by your name

I take it's no use
But I miss you
Still calling love
By your name

All the same
Whomever's to blame for this
I call love by your name

I take it's no use
But I miss you
Still calling love
By your name

No Subtle Men

It's getting late
I think my time is running out
No-one special
Nothing lasting within sight

How should I stay calm
When panic lies just ahead
Everyone can see my youth
Hanging by a thread

No subtle men
Came to my town
No subtle men
Begging for my hand

I'm one of few who's left
When everyone has gone
The train is leaving
And it's too late to get on

So much for running
When no-one stays to wait
For another broken promise
To slip my mind by mistake

Who would take my word
On anything these days
I felt so many times
Saying I'm gonna change

No subtle men
Came to my town
No subtle men

No lifelong friend
Lives in my town
No subtle men
Begging for my hand

Lovers Dream

(Feat. Fyfe Dangerfield)

Please put me to sleep
If there's room beneath your feet
See, I've left my home
I could not get used to living alone

Put me to rest
Lay your head on my chest
Hold my hand
When you leave
Don't wake me up
Just to see how you say goodbye

Maybe I could be yours
Maybe you could be mine
God, I've waited so long
Maybe my time has come
To walk by your side

Please put me at ease
Now my soul is ready for peace
Give me the lover's curse
Now I am ready for you
My rebel, my hope

Maybe I could be yours
Maybe you could be mine
God, I've waited so long
Maybe my time has come
To walk by your side

Maybe I could be yours
Maybe you could be mine
Maybe I could be yours
God, I've waited so long
To walk by your side
God, I've waited so long
To walk by your side

Feels like sand

I know you have no place left to go
I'm your last escape, so I've been told
You get paranoid, drinking on your own

I've been replaced by you before
I'm just another corpse along your road
No regretful eyes
Can win my sympathy this time

Halo, halo
Above your head today
Saying you're a changed man now

Halo, halo
Above your head today
Feels like sand in my eye

Giving every promise bitter ends
Disappointment walks with you my friend
And I am not the only one you hurt
A dozen times or more
Regretful eyes can't win my sympathy this time

Halo, halo
Above your head today
Saying you're a changed man now

Halo, halo
Above your head today
Feels like sand in my eye

Tribute to linn

Waking up was kind of strange
The past two years have made a change
You were barely on my mind
Saying goodbye sure takes time

Today you should turn twenty five
With your best time flying by
Not knowing where your future lies
And all prepared to concour life

We get no answers from the past
Nor how the fire spread so fast
That New Year's Eve all turned black
Sometimes you're lucky
Sometimes you're not

One to blame

Voices hard and hollow
Colder than I ever was before
I'm leaving you peaces
Of love to come for more

You always find me miles from where
I said you must let go
Or nothing sounds convincing
To the one who can't say no

Who could possibly save
Save us from madness
Love is the common name
Again, we depend
On the one to blame

It's bittersweet to swallow
Kindness as a consequence of guilt
So gather up the pieces
Of your last and dying will
And prepare yourself to live with
Whatever follows pain

Who could possibly save
Save us from madness
Love is the common name
Again, we depend
On the one to blame

Halfway To Fivepoints

How to get to Fivepoints
Make the wrong turn you'll know
If you're thinking of going
Think no more

Who's taking you down there
What's his name, let me know
The price he offers
Round the corner of love

Halfway to Fivepoints
Is as far as you'll come
Halfway with high hopes
Of love

So be careful, my love
Be careful, my girl
Be careful with love

How to get to Fivepoints
How would I know
A place so distant
And so long ago

Halfway to Fivepoint
Is as far as you'll come
Halfway with high hopes
Of love

Halfway To Fivepoints

Bridges

I like the fact that you depend on me
In every possible way
When your eyes wander off desperately
That you never look straight
I enjoy when you hesitate
'Cause I don't mind to wait
Somehow it's keeping me safe

All I want is you
All I need is you
Everything slips away
I won't lose you
No, you're gonna stay with me

I don't mind you taking after me
No thoughts of your own
Lost for words, repeating constantly
No, no, I don't mind
In fact it calms me down

All I want is you
All I need is you
Everything slips away
The thought of us
Gets me through the day

All I want is you
All I need is you
Everything slips away
I won't lose you
No, you're gonna stay with me

I won't lose you
No, you're gonna stay with me

Little Lies

( Fleetwood Mac Cover / Shoreline EP )

If I could turn the page
In time then I'd rearrange just a day or two
But I couldn't find a way
So I'll settle for one day to believe in you

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
Oh, no, no you can't disguise

Although I'm not making plans
I hope that you understand there's a reason why
No more broken hearts
We're better off apart let's give it a try

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
Oh, no, no, no you can't disguise
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

If I could turn the page
In time then I'd rearrange just a day or two
But I couldn't find a way
So I'll settle for one day to believe in you

So tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
Tell me, tell me
Oh, no, no, you can't disguise
Can't disguise
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

The Ones They Blame

She likes to call him
Wake him
At night when he's in bed
She's oh so quiet
Hangs up
When he says his name

Maybe it's by habit
They were lovers
They could talk all night
She gets excited
By the thought that
He's afraid she might come back

Who could possibly save
Save them from madness
Love is the common name
Again they depend
On the one to blame

What can he say
He's got that creepy feeling
Everyone they know says
She's over him
She's moving on
How come she knows everything he does
And every place he goes

Who could possibly save
Save them from madness
Love is the common name
Again they depend
On the one to blame

You mean nothing to me anymore

Let the curtain fall on me and you
Let the lights go out and blow out the fuse
No strings attached between me and you

Amazing it seems
You mean nothing to me anymore
Acquainted as we are expected to be
When we grow up

You remind me of not letting go
Disabled by fear to be on my own
Having a twin as your lover
You'll never be free

Amazing it seems
You mean nothing to me anymore
Acquainted as we are expected to be
When we grow up
When we grow up

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

Black widow

I let her go
Gone gone gone black widow
I let her go
Gone gone gone in a dying meadow

I just open up my window
No need to argue
If she's going

I let her go
Gone gone gone in the deep slumber
Gone gone gone as ice melts in summer

I just open up my window
No need to argue
Lay my head against my pillow
No need to follow
If she's going

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

Leaving On a Mayday

What have I done

You are my everything
My head, my heart, my mind, my wing
I could give all again
I'm never short
Of anything
With you

The jokes the laughs the teardrops too
The games the fun the travels too
Yes I'd go through it all with you
All good things now come from you

I hope you feel the way I do
I hope you give yourself up too
I'm damned to feel the way I do
What have I done to fall so hard for you

I give my everything
My head, my heart, my mind, my wing
The past the present tomorrow too
I'd spend my final day with you

I hope you feel the way I do
I hope you give yourself up too
I'm damned to feel the way I do
What have I done to fall so hard for you

I hope you feel the way I do
I hope you give yourself up too
I'm damned to feel the way I do
What have I done to fall so hard for you

Damaged ones

Maybe we are the damaged ones
Endless need like a burning sun
Burns like you my damaged one

On my knees in a faceless crowd
We go blind when the stakes are high
I'm on my knees can you see me now
Whatever you do don't leave me tonight

Maybe we are the damaged ones
Endless need like a burning sun
Burns like you my damaged one

You and I in a shameless state
I want you so badly, you know
That it's a pain to wait
What keeps you from moving
Are you afraid to be loved
See how my hands shake
I was raised on it like a drug

Maybe we are the damaged ones
Endless need like a burning sun
Burns like you my damaged one
It's you or none my damaged one
It's you or none my damaged one

Terrified

No one I'd rather be with than you
We never say the word, but our eyes always do
My head explodes and my mind's a mess
And I'm dying to move like young boys do

No one I'd rather be with than you
Away with the bothers, the saddest of news
Sober or not, high or down below myself
You know the days when nothing flows

You see me
Like no one
Saw me before
This part terrifies me so

No one makes me free like you make me
I speak my mind, I'm honest and cruel
I lay out my card
I'm a joke
I'm a fool
But the beast in me
Sleeps oh so peacefully
Oh so peacefully

You see me
Like no one
Saw me before

Let It Rain

Leaving on a mayday
A fine summer pain
In his heart
On his tongue
The taste is sweet again

Leaving on a mayday
A fine summer pain
But his head's a feather
And his mind can take off
His feet are moving again

Let it rain on me
Let it rain
Let it rain on me
Let it rain

Morning comes, wakes him up
He looks out at the parking lot
And sees the house, he was born
Almost fifty seven years ago
Where his brother lives
Where his sister moved
Where all three went to and finished school
Where their father died in fifty nine
Their mother did in sixty three
He's reminded of her when he looks at me

Let it rain on me
Let it rain
Let it rain on me
Let it rain

Let it rain on me
Let it rain
Let it rain on me

That's how
That's how all things grow
That's how
That's how all things grow

I've been waiting for the news he said
For twenty years I've been waiting
For the last pages in the book I read
About love, death, and endless need

About you, your sister, your mother and me
Even the happiest families bleed
Of wanting to get even, making it last
And get every bastard from the past

Let it rain on me
Let it rain
Let it rain on me
Let it rain

Let it rain on me
Let it rain
Oh let it rain on me

That's how
That's how all things grow
That's how
That's how all things grow

That's how
That's how all things grow
That's how
That's how all things grow

My heart still beats for you

Hard to believe how people move
Falling out of love with you
Tearing down all the walls
And love the chaos

I thought again of driving by
The place we met, you and I
Where it started, how we lived
Together always

My heart still beats for you
My heart still beats for you
After all, it's always you

You came down hard that summer
I started to dance, I remember everything
But not a thought of you
And I lied a lot too
Maybe to forget you

My heart still beats for you
My heart still beats for you
My heart still beats for you
My heart still beats for you
After all, it's always you
I come back to
I come back to you
I come back to you
I come back to you

No I don't remember

No, I don't remember
What brought us to this
What places we blindly passed
What turns we missed
When things really mattered
And we really cared
Simply being was easy
Just having you there

I was on a downslide, wasting my days
Then I met you and came to such a lovely place
We laughed and cried our way through
The days and nights
The weeks and months
And all the seasons ups and downs

Remind me of how I used to feel
Remind me of who I used to be
Back when nothing could come between us
Back when that thought would never leave us

'Cause I don't remember
Love needles and the hay
The life I knew by heart and lived everyday
The secret codes and signs
You and I eye to eye
Wake me up, hurt me, you have to
I forgot how to cry

Remind me of how I used to feel
Remind me of who I used to be
Back when nothing could come between us then
That thought would never leave us then
Nothing could come between us then
That thought would never leave us

Summer Rain

Last summer was mad
Remember the rain
I know people complained
I had something else in mind
Not the sound of rain
Against my window pane
All I could hear was you
Hammering in my head

Fall like a wave
Against a rock
Leave with a rush
Or get crushed
You never know
Until after the shock
When you wake up
What's broken what's not

One day I don't know how
My whole life evolved
Around you my Lord
Believing was not enough

You said I was a hole of desperate need
And no love in the world
Not even yours
Could satisfy me

That's when the troubles began
And disasters came
One by one I nearly drowned
In that summer rain

Fall like a wave
Against a rock
Leave with a rush
Or get crushed
You never know
Until after the shock
When you wake up
What's broken what's not

We fall like waves
Against the rock
Leave with a rush or get crushed
You never know
Until after the shock
When you wake up
What's broken what's not
When you wake up
What's broken what's not

*** Thanx a lot to bj'rgvin for this one ***

Losing You

Fine white sheet and candles too
Beds in a straight row
One's for you
No one talks
Straight at you
Just outside in the hallway

Flowers in the window
Red and blue
Rose, people here still think of you
No bleeding eyes
When they pass
Don't bang your head
Against the glass

What can I do
I am losing you
What can I do
I am losing you

What can I do
I am losing you
What can I do
I am losing you

From the doorway
Watching you sleep
Before you wake up
Not when you eat
Keep it straight
Wipe your mouth
Keep it down
Rose, don't shout

What can I do
I am losing you
What can I do
I am losing you

What can I do
I am losing you
What can I do
I am losing you

From the doorway
Watching you sleep
Before you wake up
Not when you eat
Keep it straight
Wipe your mouth
Keep it down
Rose, don't shout

What can I do
I am losing you
What can I do
I am losing you...

Off the road

Off the road, somewhere I don't know
Soon with you, it's gonna blow
In your car for hours and days
Weeks and months, windows rolled down

We pass small cities and big ones too
I brought one promise, not one for you
We drive fast, sunsets low
I wanna reach the son before I get old

Deserts and Fields and the pine trees
Music my father played me
When I was a child, just like now
I never once thought that feeling could die

Those days came and went
Then you get taken by life by accident
And you wake up somewhere in the shade
Overloaded by what you made yourself
Have to get the things, the ring, the man, a wing
And smile when you don't win

And I say off the road
Somewhere, I don't know
Just as long as I feel it blow
Deserts and fields and the pine trees
Music my father played me
When I was a child just like now
I never once thought that feeling could die
That feeling could die

Black sunday afternoon

On the black sunday afternoon
The sun is pale like the moon
When you look to the sky
Holy holy why
All fades into blue
On the black sunday afternoon

No good time to walk alone
On a bike riding home
When you look to the sky
Holy holy why
All fades into blue
On the black sunday afternoon

Bad luck comes or just a car
On the right side, hears a call
And sees a blackbird flying low
Above her head no missel-toe
Nothing really moves
On black sunday afternoons

You wake up in a waterbed
On the back of your head
A lump and just a tiny hole
Almost no light at all in here
And when you call
You can't hear your own voice at all

They gather up, something's wrong
They ask around, but noone knows
Have you been where the rivers cross
By the water in the moss
Nothing really moves
On black sunday afternoons

Sun's pale like the moon
When you look to the sky
Holy holy holy holy why
All fades into blue
On black sunday afternoons

The Night Visitor

Solitary Move

Lovely night
I'll dance to tonight
Safe as long as I'm moving
No one touches me now
Hands without skin, oh so soothing
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Lovely night
Free myself from heavy guilt on my shoulders
Stillness in the cold
Peace comes crawling up my bone

In a solitary move
I am moving away from you
I am moving away from you

Lovely night no need, but one
Let go what I hold in my hands
Let go what I hold in my heart
My head
My chest
Ocean helps man to forget

In a solitary move
I am moving away from you
In a solitary move
I am moving away from you
I am moving away from you

The Longer the Waiting (The Sweeter the Kiss)

Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
It's better my darling, I promise you this
The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
Will you wait for me darling, I need to know

Well, you know I'm a sailor and tomorrow we sail
It's a hard way of living, but I know it well
And if I surrender my life to the sea
You can marry another it's alright with me
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Though we won't be together again 'til the spring
Just imagine the treasures I'll bring

Come lay with me, stay with me, soon I'll be gone
I will remember you all winter long
When I return to the one that I miss
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
The sweeter the kiss

When the mornings are warm and the valleys are green
I'll come back from wherever I've been

Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
It's better my darling, I promise you this
The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
We will give up the ocean forever, I know
Forever I know

Lorelie-Marie

She was such an eager companion
I've never seen a pair of eyes more alone
Safety in the arms of a stranger
Hoping his ship would finally bring her home

Lorelie-Marie
Count your blessings if it gets tough
With each gift comes a loss
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
He was imprisoned by his own mind
Troubled after years of never letting go
He could drink all the way to blindness
She would follow him, always be walking alone

Lorelie-Marie
Count your blessings if you feel stuck
Lorelie-Marie
If the road gets dark and you feel lost
We all pay our own costs

They were such eager companions
See them stumble on the most precious dreams
Make a life between the wave break
Catching breath in an ocean of steel

Lorelie-Marie
Count your blessings if you lose touch
Lorelie-Marie
If loves not giving and you had enough
Leave and nothing will be lost
Leave and nothing will be lost...

Ghost of a Man

Would you believe me if I said
I never meant to hurt you, like I hurt myself
With you I was numbing all my pain
I will always bury my head in the sand
Stand by your side, just a ghost of a man
I thought I was better, must have been dreaming
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I guess it's true what people say
We never really change
My minds just forget
If I was strong enough to stay
You would always carry your burdens alone
I was and I still am, my father's son
I thought I was better, must have been dreaming

You will always be waiting
And wave from the shore
I'm out on that island, no matter where I go
I thought I could be good
Must have been dreaming
We must have been dreaming
We must have been dreaming

What Remains

All in his eyes, all in his eyes
The old buried lies, old buried lies
Let's start over my love, let's start over my love
With what remains, with what remains
What remains
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
All in her voice, all in her voice
The precious the false, the precious and the false
Let's get over our love, let's get over our love
No one's to blame, no one's to blame
No one's to blame

All in our hands, all in our hands
We rise and descend, rise and descend
Let's start over my love, let's start over my love
Everything changed, everything changed
Everything changed

Bow Your Head

Let's give it up for the rain
Heavy fall and a halo
Hours of holding the time
Like a stone in the palm of your hand
Lovely days by your side
Not even once, I never saw signs of trouble

Bow your head
Bow your head

Let's give it up for the fool
Words falling carelessly
Each joke holds a belief
For sad people like you and me

Bow your head
Bow your head
Bow your head
For all the loveliness
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Let's take a walk on the beach
Feel the sand beneath our feet
Fall asleep in the shade
After a swim in the ocean
Get dry on sandy rocks
Not even once, I never saw
Signs of trouble

Bow your head
Bow your head
Bow your head
For all the loveliness

Walking Aimlessly

In the black out of light
I found a rhyme on hope
In the corner of doubt
Someone left a word hanging on to me still
A comfort I say
The making of a slow day

I draw a pair of new eyes in my mind
Reaching out who knows what I could find

Walking aimlessly
Walking aimlessly
Walking aimlessly

In blue hours of dawn
Before the day rushes on
And confusion grabs hold
Have the thoughts come and let go

I draw a pair of new eyes in my mind
Reaching out who knows what I could find
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Walking aimlessly
Walking aimlessly
Walking aimlessly

In the black out of light
I found a rhyme on hope
In the corner of doubt
Someone left a word hanging on to me still

Walking aimlessly
Walking aimlessly
Walking aimlessly

God Don't Know

In his arms I forget
The beautiful women he met
Behind my back
His eyes stay true
Even loving you

God knows, God don't know
God don't know

I begged him to leave you
Saying that together we'll be free
He comes home late
All scratched up
Oh my minds fucked up
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
God knows, God don't know
God don't know

I even thought I could get out
Walk away, put my head right
He wakes up with a mouth too sweet
He still makes me bleed

God knows, God don't know
God knows, God don't know
God knows, God don't know
God don't know, God don't know

Black Light Shines

Wake up in a haze
Light as a feather
Amazed by the white linen sheet
Placed over your head

Out of the steel bed
Out of the aches
Released from your head
Thinking kills us all in the end

Black light shines
Over your head on the wall
Black light shines
No name on your badge anymore
Black light shines

The 9th of July
A first last goodbye
Your face in the wind being 5 maybe 6
Without wings you fly

Out of the steel bed
Out of the aches
Released from your head
Thinking kills us all in the end
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Black light shines
Over your head on the wall
Black light shines
No name on your badge anymore
Black light shines

Wake up in a haze
Light as a feather
Amazed by the white linen sheet
Placed over your head

Over your head on the wall
Get up on your feet and walk
Black light shines
Black light shines
Oh black light shines

All Shadows

There is the one ceiling the lies
A fine veil over your eyes
Even the ocean, holding the tide
Your hopes while you're slaving for time

This is the one who knows no regret
Who knows who you are
You've never met
But one day he'll find you
Where ever you are
Owner of land he never walked on

All shadows, even the sun
All shadows, even the sun
All shadows, even the sun
Without a doubt he knows how to count your tears

There is the one ceiling the lies
A fine veil over your eyes
Wake up one day and you'll realize how
Hard you've been running most of your life

All shadows, even the sun
All shadows, even the sun
All shadows, even the sun
Without a doubt he knows how to count your tears
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
He waves at the old with his back to the wall
Waves at the young, the lost, the bored
Giving the sad eye while in his mind
You're not adding straws to the pile

Maybe he'll give you a few more years
Placing the time glass on your stairs
From that day your life's caving in
You'll blame yourself, no one ever blames him

All shadows, all shadows
All shadows, even the sun
Without a doubt he knows how to count your tears

Come to Bed

Two black holes
Eyes of hate in a dream
Never seen so much blood
Red dark colored mud

On my hands down the street
Piles higher than a mind can reach

Come to bed if it's hard to believe
Come to bed if it's hard to believe

Broken windows, fallen trees
Walk in ashes to the knees
Filth and dust in our hair
The smell of ruin is everywhere

Get their toughs, leave the bones
Of anyone who comes close to our home
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Count the dead if it's hard to believe
Count the dead if it's hard to believe

Day one there was light
Day two divided sky from the sea
Then came you and me
Some things are written in the stars
As we were always meant to be
We both know, you'll never leave

Come to bed if it's hard to believe
Come to bed if it's hard to believe
Come to bed if it's hard to believe

Dearest Dear

My dearest dear, the time draws near
When you and I must part
And no one knows the inner grief
Of my poor aching heart

Just to see how I suffered for your sake
You are my love so dear
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I wish your breast was made of glass
And in it I'd behold
Your name in secret I would write
In letters of bright gold

Your name in secret I would write
Pray believe me when I say
That you're the one that I love best
Until my dying day

And when you're on some distant shore
Think on your absent friend
And when the wind blows high and clear
A line or two pray send

And when the wind blows high and clear
Pray to send it love to me
That I shall know by your hand write
How times have gone with thee

For The Young 

Hours

Father I know your pride
I will hold the light
When your eyes get weak
When your hands shake like the leaves
In the flaming trees
And bend like weed in the wind
I will turn the pages

Hour after hour
Hour after hour
Hour after hour
Another copy paste from aotr
Father I know the songs you loved
That I danced to as a child
I will play them all, sing them
Over and over
In warm dark spanish nights

Hour after hour
Hour after hour
Hour after hour
Hour after hour

I will paint the sky in the ceiling
and the sunset on the wall
Every gift you'll know
Know the meaning
Feel it in your blood and your bone

Hour after hour
I will turn the pages
I will hold the light
I will paint the sunset
On the bedroom wall

Still A Beautiful Day

We could say one day at a time makes it useless to try
Maybe this mountain is ours ahead a heavenly climb
A pile of ashes the wings of a moth drawn to the flame
Sooner or later you learn
Another copy paste from aotr
Still it's a beautiful day
As long as I'm with you
I don't believe anything could taint the sky

We burn the fuse at both ends
Tell me how can I keep my baby safe
We could say one day at a time
Makes it all worth while

Still it's a beautiful day as long as I'm with you
I don't believe anything could
Keep our backs turned away from the grave
As long as I'm with you
I don't believe anything could

For The Young

Anyone in there
Knock, knock, knock
I think I see you among the shadows
They still cling to the wall
Your mind feeds them
You're the victim of lack of meaning
Feeling sorry is your favorite feeling

Why am I supposed to excuse you
Nod my head as if I'm amused
Give me a reason to lay down my guns
Who said youth is only for the young
Another copy paste from aotr
You shut out the light in your home
All that remains is the echo of laughter
Someone left it there a half lifetime ago

Why am I supposed to excuse you
Nod my head as if I'm amused
Give me a reason to lay down my guns
Who said youth is

Why am I supposed to excuse you
Nod my head as if I'm amused
Give me a reason to lay down my guns
Who said youth is only for the young

Why am I supposed to excuse you
Nod my head as if I'm amused
You never gave up, you never begun
Who said youth is only for the young

Caroline

Answers are so hard to find
If you're selling dreams
Caroline
Wealth has only made you blind
The path back to beach
Is nowhere to be found
Caught between the ocean and the shoreline
Another copy paste from aotr
Caroline, Caroline
Caroline, Caroline
Caroline, come back around
Come back around

She sleeps in silk on linen sheets
With a view of the ocean
Caressed by the breeze
She forgot why she came here in the first place

Caroline, Caroline
Caroline, come back around
Come back around

Caroline, Caroline
Caroline, Caroline
Caroline, Caroline
Come back around

Walk Right In

I did all I could do to forget
Dreamt about the place but I haven't been there yet
Somewhere in this world of broken spells
If I ever find it, won't ring the bell

I'm gonna walk right in
I'm gonna call your name
When I see your face
I'll know why I came

After all this time
I'm gonna make it right
I'll walk right in
I'll walk right in
I'll walk right in

Flakes of paint coming off the wall
Pictures of old friends hanging in the hall
I won't get to see you anymore
If I wait at the door
Another copy paste from aotr
I'm gonna walk right in
I'm gonna call your name
When I see your face
I know why I came

After all this time
I'm gonna make it right
I'll walk right in
I'll walk right in
I'll walk right in
I'll walk right in

Lonely one

Lonely one
Who needs a shoulder to cry on
Lonely one
We all need someone to rely on

They'll find a place the light is dim
They'll circle up and close you in
You have called upon the angels
Forgiving all their sins

Lonely one
Who never knew who to follow
Lonely one
All the tears you have swallowed
Another copy paste from aotr
They'll find a place the light is dim
They'll circle up and close you in
You have called upon the angels
You have called upon each friend
You'll never call on them again

You'll find a place the light is dim
One by one, reel them in
When they call upon the angels
You let them in

Keep Me In The Dark

Who wants to know
The thoughts of the one
They care for the most
Places they go

When their eyes are closed
I would be cautious
That's my one promise
I will be cautious

If you have someone else in mind
Don't shut out the light
If you have someone else in mind
Keep me in the dark
Keep me in the dark

I could love you
Like no one has
Not like the first time
I'll get close enough
Another copy paste from aotr
If you have someone else in mind
Don't shut out the light
If you have someone else in mind
Don't shut out the light
If you have someone else in mind
Keep me in the dark
Keep me in the dark
Keep me in the dark

I will be cautious
That's my one promise
I will be cautious

Keep me in the dark
Keep me in the dark

Only Those Who Love

You and I
Not a day goes by
We all have our ways to feel new again
Saying goodbye
Is just one of them
In the corner of my eye
Youth takes a bow

Only those who love
Only those who love
Even when your whole chest breaks

Don't look down
You said
Take my hand
So I followed you
Along the mountain ledge
Couldn't tell if I
Was lying to myself
Another copy paste from aotr
Only those who love
Only those who love
Even when you know everything will change

In the corner of my eye
Youth takes a bow
Giving me her blessing. turns and walks away
I think I dreamt this
I knew this day would come
When you leave and I ride off into the sun

Don't Leave

You'll always be the one
I'll confide in
Casting light like the sun
Times when I was lost
Never once I lost faith in us

Don't leave
Don't leave
Leave me again
Another copy paste from aotr
It's gonna take some time
There's no end
No finish line
We've only just begun
Woken by a fine summer rain

Don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave
Stay
Stay
Stay with me again

Don't leave
Don't leave
Leave me again

Just As Friends

Let's meet again just as friends
Introduce ourselves with brand new names
In another time, in a different place

I will always care for you
I will always care for you
Another copy paste from aotr
I feel the pain on my skin
Burn right through and all the way in
This is a fight we just can't win

I will always care for you
I will always care for you

If you walk away
If you walk away
Stay with me stay
Stay with me

A friend at last

( Demo EP & I'll Follow You Tonight EP )

After years of having you as a weight on my heart
We've had our last round
Your words are weightless
They once weighed gold
And had me spellbound

You belong to the past
I'm not crying over you
You're just a friend at last

My life is changing
But you will play no part
You want me your way
Become the slow-moving girl who hangs around
Loved ones to feel calm

After years of having you as a weight on my heart
The stone turned to air at last
You belong to the past
I'm not crying over you
You're just a friend at last

You're just a friend
La la la....

After years of having you as a weight on my heart
It's obvious to me that you belong to the past
I'm not crying over you
You're just a friend at last

You're just a friend
La la la....

All For Me

( My Secret Ep )

Something striking hard tonight
And it's causing confusion
Across the borders of my mind
Across the borders of sadness

Please someone help me out today
I don't think I handle my friends too well
Please someone try to understand
I never meant to hurt anyone

It's all for me
Nothing left for you
Nothing left for anyone
It's all for me
There's nothing left for you

Bad conscience striking hard tonight
And it's wounding me badly
I need a safer place to hide
I need new friends to forgive me

Please someone try to understand
I never meant to fail anyone

It's all for me
There's nothing left for you
Nothing left for anyone
It's all for me
There's nothing left for you

The moon might blind us
It's time to care
Well I'm so sorry
I'm not yet there

All for me
It's all for me
It's all for me and nothing left for anyone
It's all for me
All for me
It's all for me and nothing left for anyone

Anywhere I Lay My Head

( Tom Waits Cover / Shoreline EP )

My head is spinning round
My heart is in my shoes
I went and set the thames on fire
I must come back down

She's laughing in her sleeve boys
I can feel it in my bones
But anywhere, anywhere I lay my head
I'm gonna call my home

Well this upside-down
Seems that my pockets filled with gold
And the clouds they've covered over
The wind is blowing cold

And I don't need anybody
'Cause I learned to be alone
Anywhere, anywhere I lay my head
Gonna call my home
Anywhere, anywhere I lay my head
Gonna call my home

China girl

( David Bowie Cover / Shoreline EP )

I could escape this feeling with my china girl
I feel a wreck without my little china girl
I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
Saw their stars crashing

I'm a mess without my little china girl
Wake up in the morning where's my little china girl
I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
Saw their stars crashing down

I feel tragic like I'm Marlon Brando
When I look at my china girl
I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
When I look at my china girl

I stumble into town just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
Plans for everyone
It's in the white of my eyes

And when I get excited
My little china girl says
Baby just you shut your mouth
She says "sh-sh-shhh"
She says "sh-sh-shhh"

Come Fly With Me

(Frank Sinatra cover / Anna Sings Sinatra EP )

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
So come fly with me, come fly away

Come fly with me, let's float down to Peru
In llama land there's a one-man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, let's float down in the blue

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
You can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
So come fly with me, come fly away

Weather's wise, it's such a lovely day
You just say the words and we'll beat the birds
Down to Acapulco Bay
So come fly with me, let's fly away

Everyone's Waiting

(Gifts of changes EP)

They were few
Those who moved me
Somehow it confused me
Threw me off my feet to the ground

Once it's done
Then you lay on your back
Stripped of illusions
Read a new name in the stars

Maybe I waited for you
Maybe you waited for me
Everyone's waiting for someone to save them

They were few
Those who fooled me
Somehow it amused me
We derailed, got out of hand

Maybe I waited for you
Maybe you waited for me
Everyone's waiting for someone to break them

Maybe I waited for you
Maybe you waited for me
Everyone's taking, no use escaping
Everyone's waiting for someone to save them

Fly Me To The Moon

(Frank Sinatra cover / Anna Sings Sinatra EP )

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me
In other words, please, be true
In other words, I love you

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me
In other words, please, be true
In other words, I love you

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon

Goodbye

(Emmylou Harris / Gifts of changes EP)

I remember holdin' on to you
All them long and lonely nights I put you through
Somewhere in there I'm sure I made you cry
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

But I recall all of them nights down in Mexico
One place I may never go in my life again
Was I just off somewhere just too high
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

I only miss you here every now and then
Like the soft breeze blowin up from the Carribean
Most Novembers I break down and cry
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

But I recall all of them nights down in Mexico
One place I may never go in my life again
Was I just off somewhere just too high
'Cause I can't remember if we said goodbye
No I can't remember if we said goodbye
Goodbye

Highlands

( Separation Road Naked Version )

A war has been fought
We've made a mistake
A sign of defeat
All over your face

Give it a try
This may be the last chance
We'll ever have
Finding the highlands

I swear I'll take you there
If you let me
You'll never forget me
I swear I'll amaze you
If you let me
Maybe that could save us
Maybe that could save us

The word has gone out
There's no one to save
A sign of relief
All over your face

As bad as it gets
The harder we tried
The deeper we fell
Up until now
I never knew
The way to the highlands

I swear I'll take you there
If you let me
You'll never forget me
I swear I'll amaze you
If you let me
Maybe that could save us
That could save us

I swear

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

It's not me

( Demo EP & I'll Follow You Tonight EP )

What's happening to you
Where did all your sadness come from
What's happening to you
I'm not your world to blame
I'm not your world to blame
And it's been going on
Since you gave me love I gave right back
And it's been to long
Find another shoulder to cry on
Find another shoulder to cry on

It's not me
You should count on
It's not me
You confide in now

Step out of the shadow
Step out of the dark and face the sun
You'll get along without her
You'll get along just fine with what you have
You needed no other
To complicate your life you need no love
Step out of her shadow
Soon all the pain within is gone

It's not me
You should count on
It's not me
You confide in now

Let The Bells Ring

( Lovers Dream & More Music for Psychotic Lovers EP )

Not a word from you, I'm waiting
Do you get my letters, I get none
I've been everywhere to find you
'Cause I refuse to believe you're gone

I've gone through every stage of waiting
Fury and anger, indifference and hate
Deep down I know that I still love you
I always have and I always will

So I keep on searching until I find you
Writing these letters every day

'Cause I refuse to believe you left me
'Cause you'll never leave
Nor stop loving me
'Cause I would hurt you beyond belief

Lovekeeper

( Separation Road Naked Version )

Lovekeeper please let me out
Lovekeeper please let me out
I haven't been for so long
You keep your eyes on me

Love of mine don't lend a hand
Yours are just keeping me down
And I've been down for so long
Your love likes to hold on

I hear a timebomb ticking when you come too near
Violent explosions no one but I can hear

Lovekeeper you cut me off
Words as defense aren't enough
And I've been quiet for too long
You keep your eyes on me
Lovekeeper please set me free

I hear a timebomb ticking when you come too near
Violent explosions no one but I can hear
I hear a timebomb ticking

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

Me and you

( Demo )

Me and you
A better laugh in twenty years from now
It's unprospective and dedication
I would find somebody new

He better be someone special
He better be coming very soon
He better be for real this time
Oh i know it always must with you
Yoooouuu yoooooou

You or no one
I hope i'm wrong before i die of bordan
I want more than
Days and nights when i am ???  myself alone

Better be very special
He better be devoted just like you
Better be for real this time
I know it always was with you
Yooouuu with yooouuu, yoooouu, yoooouuu

France for everyone
Not a girl would change your mind
In less than half the summer
So before you fall in love i wonder
When you asked for
Something that i could'nt give you more of
Me and you
I talk as if its now
But nothing is new

She better be very special
She better be more in love than me
If i was your brightest hour
She is now
As far as i can see

New York, New York

(Frank Sinatra cover / Anna Sings Sinatra EP )

Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

Start spreading the news

Nights In Goodville

( Separation Road Naked Version )

I've never felt so calm
You would never upset me
Or do me any harm
I sense a lack of fear
Ever since the day we moved here
Nothing frightens me at all
No one here falls in love
I fall asleep on someone's arm

Nights in Goodville
Are too quiet and too calm
Winds don't blow here
But I'll never be untrue

No I swore to never leave you
And I always keep my word
And I never lose my way
You know there's just one road for us to walk down
Now let's see how far it goes

I want to fall in love
And maybe you're not the one
But perhaps you could be
But if loving you is hard
Please don't hate me
Please don't hate me

But the current in this water
Is not as rapid as the flood
Of love when it washes over
And one time I saw it coming
But I was too afraid of letting go
So I let it flow right past me

I think we fell in love
Yes I think he was the one
But perhaps you could be
But the nights here are so still
Not a whisper in Goodville
Not a whisper in Goodville

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

No Way Out

( Somebody Outside Naked Version )

It's a sign of winter in the midst of June
Nothing left unbroken, someone spoke too soon
Already night falls, not even noon
Someone has been hurt badly in this room

No way out, no way out by forgetting and forgiving now
No way out, no way out now

All the days that ended, all the doors that closed
All the glass is broken, wish you never spoke
It's a sign of winter, your seasons never change
No one left to stay for, nothing left to say

No way out, no way out by forgetting and forgiving now
No way out, no way out now

No way out, no way out by forgetting and forgiving now
No way out, no way out now

Oublie

( Separation Road Bonus Track on French Ed. )

N'y pense plus et oublie
N'y pense plus et oublie
Les promesses, laisse-les ici

Certains jours comme aujourd'hui
La solitude me tient compagnie
Je voudrais être, être partie
Je voudrais être, déjà partie

Fuis le calme et la nuit
Fuis le calme et oublie
Les souvenirs sont tes ennemis

Les images que je me repasse
A l'infini je les efface
Je les efface de cette nuit
Cette nuit à l'infini

Quitte la ville et le froid
Quitte la ville laisse-la
Les enfants qui n'en sont pas

Laisse-moi tirer un fil
Sur lequel dès aujourd'hui
Je voudrais être, être partie
N'y pense plus, oublie
N'y pense plus, oublie
Les promesses, laisse-les ici

Certains jours comme aujourd'hui
La solitude me tient compagnie
Je voudrais être, être partie
Je voudrais être, déjà partie

Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely

(Backstreet Boys / Gifts of changes EP)

Show me the meaning of being lonely
So many words for the broken heart
It's hard to see in a crimson love
So hard to breathe
Walk with me, and maybe

Nights of light so soon become
Wild and free I could feel the sun
Your every wish will be done
They tell me

Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can't be there where you are
There's something missing in my heart

Life goes on as it never ends
Eyes of stone observe the trends
They never say forever gaze upon me

Guilty roads to an endless love
There's no control
Are you with me now
Your every wish will be done

Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can't be there where you are
There's something missing in my heart

There's nowhere to run
I have no place to go
Surrender my heart, my body, and soul
How could it be you're asking me
To feel the things you never

Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can't be there where you are
There's something missing in my heart
There's something missing in my heart

Strangers In The Night

(Frank Sinatra cover / Anna Sings Sinatra EP )

Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wondering in the night
What were the chances we'd be sharing love
Before the night was through

Something in your eyes was so inviting
Something in you smile was so exciting
Something in my heart
Told me I must have you

Ever since that night we've been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night

Stranger in the night
We are strangers
You and I

That's Life

(Frank Sinatra cover / Anna Sings Sinatra EP )

That's life
That's what all the people say
You're riding high in April
And you're shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top
Again in June

I said that's life
And as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Stomping on a dream
But I don't let it get me down
'Cause this fine ol' world
It keeps spinning around

That's life
That's what all the people say
You're riding high in April
And you're shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top
Again in June

The loneliness is gone

( Separation Road Naked Version )

Can you keep a secret
I'm just as weak as you
Afraid of living without you
Afraid of dying out of love

It's a new thing I have for you
I'm alone
But the loneliness is gone

Some kind of space we live in
Emptiness grows from inside
On our own we are weightless
With you I stand my ground
Always be better half of me

It's a new thing I have for you
I'm alone
But the loneliness is gone
The loneliness is gone

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

Troubled mind

( To be gone EP )

Found love, last summer it faded away
All marks on my body vanished in a day
Unwanted, late september when you are eager to find
A way to last the winter, a love of any kind

You have no one on your side
Fight your own troubled mind
And no help to come by
Fight your own troubled mind

All winter, slept around until my heart fell a sleep
Never had so much, was afraid to keep
First of april, love of your life falls out of the blue
Falling for a bad joke, you love to be the fool

You have no one on your side
Fight your own troubled mind
And no help to come by
Fight your own troubled mind

So find love, for to night for all nights to come
As long as you're with someone and never left alone
As long as you're with someone never left alone

You have no one on your side
Fight your own troubled mind
And no help to come by
Fight your own troubled mind

Wedding song

( To be gone EP )

Not the first time I saw you
But I knew we meant to spend some time
Half a day then a half a life time pass by
Until now, I never knew for who

For you my dear, promises I made
I made for you my dear
As close as one can get
I got to you my dear, then you should know
I won't let you down this time
I won't let you down this time

This is our time for all times starting from today
Oh he takes her to the sky they say
She puts him on his feet again
There were bad times, never been so low
Leaving our house that time, you just let me go
We try to scream, words ran out like sand
Now we talk again, it's better, and you should know

I won't let you down this time no no
I won't let you down this time

I won't let you down
No I won't let you down

When Tomorrow Comes

( Eurythmics Cover / Shoreline EP )

Underneath your dreamlit eyes
Shades of sleep have driven you away.
The moon is pale outside
And you are far from here

Breathing shifts your careless head
Untroubled by the chaos of our lives
Another day, another night
Has taken you again my dear

And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon
When tomorrow comes

Last night while you were lying in my arms
I was wondering where you were
You know you looked just like a baby
Fast asleep in this dangerous world

Every star was shining brightly
Like a million years before
We were feeling very small
Underneath the universe

And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon
When tomorrow comes

And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon
When tomorrow comes
When tomorrow comes
When tomorrow comes
Wait 'til tomorrow comes

Words of love

( Separation Road Naked Version )

Words of love sent by you
Any way you get them through
Words of love trouble me
Feels like someone's watching me

Loving hands around my throat
Bob what are you speaking of
Sounds like panic in my head
Tie the strings and I'm playing dead

All around me
Speak about you
Always find me
And remind me of you

I've erased every line you wrote
Words you stole, my quotes of love
Paper pins overflow
In my head and on my floor

Words of love
Words of love

All around me
Speak about you
Always find me
To remind me of you
To remind me of you

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***
