Hello Saferide's cheery pop/rock is primarily the work of Annika Norlin, a Swedish music journalist and radio DJ who launched her songwriting career in the early 2000s. Although Norlin had written songs in the past, she hadn't released any material until 2004, when the burgeoning songwriter uploaded her first recordings to the Internet. She quickly received label interest, and in September 2005, the Swedish label Razzia Records released Introducing... Hello Saferide. A live band was quickly assembled, and the newly expanded Hello Saferide toured throughout Asia, Brazil, and Europe in support of the debut album.

In addition to issuing a batch of EPs and singles, Norlin released a Swedish-language record under the name Säkert! in 2007. The album went gold and won two Grammis, Sweden's equivalent of the Grammy Award. Norlin followed such success by returning to the Hello Saferide project; this time, however, she replaced the winsome twee pop of her debut with an edgier sound, propelled in part by an emphasis on electric guitar. More Modern Short Stories from Hello Saferide appeared in 2008, featuring Norlin's new sound as well as numerous contributions by Popsicle's Andreas Mattsson.

Introducing Hello Saferide

Nothing like you (when you're gone)

I swear, I felt it again
The tingling of the first night again
Us moving slowly, merle haggard, the fading sun
Well, there's nothing like you when you're gone

I wear your sweatshirt again
The one with the cast of falcon crest on
The one I forbade you to use time and again
Well it's sad, I keep putting it on

A friend stopped by and said as quoted:
“i can't believe that we're here again
Have you forgotten the women, the drinking, the blues of the eighties collection
Oh my God, you're wearing your Lorenzo Lamas again”

Yes, I am lonesome again
Yes, I am crying again
Yes, you are getting this letter again
Because there's nothing like you when you're gone

Never as tender and never as well dressed
Never as handsome and never as good in bed
Never had such good taste
Never as much like me
Well, there's nothing like you when you're gone

My best friend

You call me up in the mornings
We'll stay on the phone until dawning
You tell me secrets I actually keep
You call me up around noon and
And bring me all the good gossip
You hold my head when I throw up
I hold your hand when you weep

And we talk about friends
And we talk about records
And we talk about life
And we'll talk about death
And we dance in the living room
Dance on the sidewalks
Dance in the movies
Dance at the festivals, dance, dance
No men ever really dance like this

Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was, and that you were, too

Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was so I could fall in love with you

You call me up in the evenings
And tell me what they did this time
No matter what, I'm by your side
When it's raining, we'll go to the video store
We even like the same movies
No damn Jedis or hobbits this time

And you laugh at my jokes
And I laugh at your jokes
And I even like the birthday presents you get me
And we dance in the living room
Dance on the sidewalks
Dance in the movies
Dance at the festivals, let's dance, dance
No men ever really dance like this

Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was, and that you were, too

Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was so I could fall in love with you
So I could fall in love with you

Why don't, why don't I fall
Why don't, why don't I fall
Why don't I fall in love with you

Why don't, why don't I fall
Why don't, why don't I fall
Why don't I just fall in love with you

Why don't, why don't I fall
Why don't, why don't I fall
Why don't I just fall in love with you

If I don't write this song, someone I love will die

I check my bed for bugs and spiders
Though I don't really believe they're there
I check my head, it's getting tighter
I want to stop, but I don't dare

I will not sleep until I've counted to two hundred three times
I will not sleep until my pencils lie in a straight line

Goodnight, goodbye
It's late, and I'm too tired to cry
Goodnight, goodbye
Just let me close my weary eyes

I pray to god twice in the evenings
And check the stove four times each day
I spin around the door to make sure that it's locked
And wear these lucky socks until they fade away

The house might burn down
And it's all my fault if that puddle doesn't get me wet
If I get home before the rain you're mine, but I won't bet

Goodnight, goodbye
It's late, and I'm too tired to cry
Goodnight, goodbye
Just let me close my weary eyes

One day, I'll be stepping
On cracks and close my eyes
But I'm too tired to argue with myself
I'll just do this one more time

Goodnight, goodbye
It's late, and I'm too tired to cry
Goodnight, goodbye
Just let me close my weary eyes

I thought you said summer is going to take the pain away

Finally, the sky is blue
Last night, my friends dragged me to some lake
We drove there real late, we went too fast
Sipping cheap sangria in the backseat
Everybody are laughing and we are listening to our favourite songs
But I thought you said
Summer is going to take the pain away

January brought a headache
In February, it got even worse
And when you thought it couldn't get more awful
Say hello to march
April brought me to a funeral
Gained another ten pounds in may
But I thought you said
Summer is going to take the pain away

Have you ever had the feeling that
No one really knows what you're all about
And when you try to show them
They all have things to do tonight
Tonight

Up on a roof, looking over the city
All by myself thinking
There is nowhere I would rather be than here, so why am I not
Like the others, and why are you not here with me doing crossword puzzles
Saying, it's going to be okay
Summer's going to take the pain away
When I'm gone, I promise
It's gonna be okay
Summer is going to take the pain away

Have you ever had the feeling that
No one really knows what you're all about
And when you try to show them
They all have things to do tonight
Tonight

Finally, the sky is blue
Last night, my friends dragged me to some lake

I don't sleep well

And suddenly, I don't feel fat anymore
I don't count my blackheads as a hobby
I don't count the marks on the wall
And I don't sleep well at all

There is someone else right beside me
He kept every secret I told
He giggled his way straight through fall
And I don't sleep well at all

He knows when I'm happy and nods when I'm sad
And he puts out when I come home drunk
And suddenly I stand real tall
But I don't sleep well at all

I have seen too many movies
I have read too many books
I'm the kind that sees sun and brings an umbrella
I have been to fortune tellers

He knows when I'm happy and nods when I'm sad
And he puts out when I come home drunk
And suddenly I stand real tall
But I don't sleep well at all

And I know love will leave you all crooked
And I know he'll start sleeping around
Or start listening to symphony rock
Or throw out the key and change the lock
But I don't sleep well at all

Long lost penpal

Hello, do you remember me
I am your long lost pen pal
It must have been ten years ago we last wrote
I don't really know what happened
I guess life came in the way
Let me know if you're still alive
Let me know if you ever used that knife or not

Hello, yes I remember you
I've got a husband and two children now
I work as an accountant and make fairly good money
I still have your letters
You used a pink pen to write them
And you would comfort me
When my tears would stain the ink
And I would send you mix tapes with Kate Bush on

I have to admit I sometimes lied in those letters
Tried to make life better than it was
I still wasn't kissed at sixteen
And I still need a friend

There was this letter
I never told you this back then
But it would be fair to say it saved my life
I sat in the window
The only one left out from a party again
Pretty sure I didn't have a single friend
Then I checked the mailbox

Dear long lost penpal
I was lying the whole time
I'm really a forty six years old man named Luke
I have three children
And a wife, she doesn't care
And I hope you don't resent me
And I hope you do not hate me
For trying to find my way back to what it's like to be young

I have to admit I sometimes lied in those letters
Tried to make life better than it was
I still wasn't kissed at sixteen
And I still need a friend

Saturday nights

Somebody ordered too many drinks last night
Somebody reckoned dancing on the bar's all right
Somebody woke up next to someone else, thinking
Some people thought about killing off themselves

Oh, Lord! Forgive me them Saturday nights
They'll make you do things you'll regret for the rest of your life
And Lord! Forbid them glimmering Saturday lights
And tell me I am not me on Saturday nights

Who was that girl who shouted “this one's on me!”
Who was that girl who dropped her drink on a celebrity
Who was that girl who fell asleep under a tree, singing
Who was that girl, I know for sure it wasn't me

Oh, Lord! Forgive me them Saturday nights
They'll make you do things you'll regret for the rest of your life
And Lord! Forbid them glimmering Saturday lights
And tell me I am not me on Saturday nights
On Saturday nights, on Saturday nights, on Saturday nights

Somebody promised she would stay in the next week
Somebody dropped out of the house just to take a peak and
Somebody reckoned well just one drink that'll do
Somebody's evil twin said, well, let's make it two

Oh, Lord! Forgive me them Saturday nights
They'll make you do things you'll regret for the rest of your life
And Lord! Forbid them glimmering Saturday lights
And tell me I am not me on Saturday nights

San Francisco

Winter's been real long this year
I know, cause I've been there
Summer never seemed to come along
And when it did, it felt all wrong
You've been sitting on the sidewalks wondering what went wrong with your life
You've been walking to your bedside table and in the top drawer was a knife

Time to take your sweetheart by the hand and lead him to the promised land
The only place in North America not destroyed by the government

San Francisco! You're going
San Francisco! We're going
Don't you know you'll never ever want to turn back

I have news for you my friend
I'm sticking by you until the end
Doctor's ordering you the same prescription, see, that worked wonders for me
I sat by myself in bars, I was driven home in state-owned cars
I was filled with so much hate until I saw the golden gate

Until my sweetheart took me by the hand and led me to the promised land
The only place in North America not yet destroyed by the government

San Francisco! You're going
San Francisco! We're going
Don't you know you'll never ever want to turn back

San Francisco! You're going
San Francisco! We're going
Don't you know you'll never ever want to turn back...

And it's time to pack your bags and call in sick and bring the toothbrush
Withdraw from that savings account what's savings for, time doesn't wait and
Hold the door, I'm coming, all that jazz
Like I'm released from Alcatraz

San Francisco! You're going
San Francisco! We're going
Don't you know you'll never ever want to turn back
You'll never ever want to turn back
You'll never ever want to turn back
You'll never ever want to turn back

Get sick soon

Oh, I love you! I wish you got the flu
So I could take care of you
Like you take care of me

I'm such a Florence
A real Florence nightingale
I'll fluff your pillows
I'll buy you a Spiderman comic
And read you 'til you fall asleep

Sleep on my shoulder
I won't wake you even
If my back turns crooked
And I have to walk with a limp for a week

I'll make you soup
And none of that kind that you get in a jar
C'ause I know you don't like those
Oh, I love you! I wish you got the flu
You're the cutest thing I've ever seen
Like a teddy bear on heroin
Come, I'll tuck you in tight
And I'll sing for you all night
All night, all night

You can hold the remote
I won't try to steal it
And the best cushion is yours
And you can have your feet on me
Even though I'm scared of feet
And even though I had a hard day at work

Oh, I love you
I wish you got the flu
You can lay your weight on me
And I'll be your backbone
You won't have to worry
'Cause I'll be your backbone
Lay your weight on me
Lay your weight on me
You won't have to worry
'Cause I'll be your backbone
Lay your weight on me
Lay your weight on me
You won't have to worry
'Cause I'll be your backbone
Lay your weight on me
Lay your weight on me

I can't believe it's not love

Can I sleep on your shoulder
Whisper words in my ear
Can we go out together
Can we make out and pretend it's all there

'Cause you know, I've been waiting for
Something that hasn't come through
But it might come along soon
And until that, you will do

I can't believe it's not love
It's not love, it's not love, it's not love

I'll take you to the movies
Yell at you when you're late
You can sigh when I shower for too long
Hold up the bathroom so that you have to wait

Invite people over for dinner
Make up names for kids we could have had
And when we get drunk, we can get it together
Go home too early, everyone will say we're sad

I can't believe it's not love
It's not love, it's not love, it's not love
It's not love

Have white wine parties in the sun
And talk about what it's gonna be like to find someone
I can't believe it's not true
And I can't believe you didn't know this, too

I can't believe it's not love
It's not love, it's not love, it's not love

Loneliness is better when you're not alone

What would you say if I asked of you
Out of loneliness, out of loneliness
What would you say if I asked of you
Out of loneliness, out of loneliness
Could I be with you
Can I be with you

It's warm inside the night club
Your face is lit up by a disco light
I don't wanna go home alone, not tonight
I have a picture of a man
Who used to sit in that chair
I will go anywhere
Just as long as I'm with someone
You'll do, just take me home for tea

If I told you my stories and sang you my songs
Would you laugh at me
Would you pity me
What would you say if I asked of you
Not out of accident, out of loneliness
Would you shelter me
Will you shelter me

I will be gone when you wake up
No embarrassing breakfasts, I swear
And don't you look for me
Because I could be anywhere
In someone else's house
In someone else's arms
With someone else to warm the pain away

What can I ask of you
What would you want from me
What would you say if I just fell asleep

Highschool stalker

I've been looking for you, baby
Anywhere that I can find
And I was searching for your sweet name
'Cause you never leave my mind
I've been on the AltaVista
I went twice on the Yahoo
And everywhere I go
There is always a clue
Always something about you
That may help me get my hands on you

Like it's your birthday tomorrow
But you're not getting anything you know
It's your birthday tomorrow
But I'm not supposed to know
Not supposed to know
But I'm not supposed to know

Hacked into the school computer
Changed all of your d's to a's
Broke into the dentist's office
Know you never needed braces
Know you moved from another small town
Know you're never going away
'Cause soon, you'll fall in love
The fortune teller said
And I know who will be the one to make your bed

And it's your birthday tomorrow
But you're not getting anything you know
It's your birthday tomorrow
But I'm not supposed to know
Not supposed to know
But I'm not supposed to know

I've been talking to your best friend
I checked out your high school yearbook
And I was driving round your mum's house
She makes great coffee, you know
I spoke to your former girlfriend
So now, I know what I've got to expect
And yesterday, you passed me by
I swear, you nearly said Hi
I could have died
I swear to God I started crying

And it's your birthday tomorrow
But you're not getting anything you know
And it's your birthday tomorrow
But I'm not supposed to know
Not supposed to know
But I'm not supposed to know

I Wonder Who Is Like This One

People are like songs, it's true
Some seem dull at first but then they grow on you
Me, I'm like can't get you out of my head
Annoying at times but I make you wanna dance

And you are the only one I've met who's God only knows
I liked you the first time I met you, and it grows and grows and grows

People are like songs, I swear
Some found you as a child and still they're always there
A boy that i knew was anarchy in the UK
Burned out too quickly but in such a beautiful way

And you are the only one I've met who's God only knows
Such a well thought out-plan but with harmonies that flow

People are like songs, I've been told
Some claim your ears but never hear a story unfold
Old radio gaga or your high school friends
Remind you of things when you were someone else

And God only knows and you paired up as two
As the turns of the seasons, you come and go
I can never claim control of either of you,
You're too sweet to be just mine alone
And I try to stay humble over the fact
That sometimes, when the time is right
You will pass my door, the crescendo comes and

God only knows and you have the sad similarity
That every time it's over, I want to press play again
But the only difference appears to be
I can force it on one of you, and on the other I can't

2008

There is a war in all the heads and there's a war in mine as well
And if I could explain it any better, I'm sure I would
We're in a bus and it's night, you opened up and so will I
But though I'm good with words, I've never been good with words

But all I know is there's something new this year
All I know is there's something new real near

There is a town that I live in and it's a town that favors winners
And when I win I think about when I'll next lose
I took a train that took me north
And it's the place where trees speak louder than the people
But if I have to pick that's what I'll choose
I walked along the river Ume, it chilled me out of my bones too
But a cold wind is always better than a cold voice
I am not strong enough for win city, I'll stay in to play Sin
Witty people without hearts have always had a lead on me

But all I know is there's something new this year
All I know is there's something new real near
All I know is there's something new this year
I don't know much, but there's something new coming near

I'll walk into the shop where you work, it is a shop that kills you slowly
There'll be no blood but another shirt on a hanger will still behead you
I'll lift your arm and you'll lift mine, and in a Communist state of mind
We're not worth more than anyone else but surely not worth less

And all I know is there's something new this year
All I know is there's something new real near
All I know is there's something new this year
I don't know much, but there's something new coming near
All I know is there's something new this year
All I know is there's something new real near
All I know is there's something new this year
All I know is there's something new real near

Overall

Overall, I think we did a good job
We did the best we could
I think we did the best we could
Overall, we couldn't have done much else
I think we pulled it off
I always thought we pulled it off
I always thought we pulled if off

Days and nights
We were a shoulder to cry on
Weren't we, weren't we
Smiling eyes that screamed “Confide in me!”
That was you and me
Weren't we, weren't we

It couldn't be our fault we never said anything political
Sure you worked late some nights
I always thought you could have breast-fed him longer than you did
but we let him in
Not enough but I let him in

Overall, I think we did a good job
We did the best we could
I think we did the best we could
Overall, we couldn't have done much else
I think we pulled it off
I always thought we pulled it off
I always thought we pulled if off

I've got my calendar here he was sick back in Ninety-Two
Maybe it was the week when they had history on World War II
You never should have got him that video game for Christmas
They shoot people in that game, pixeled people without names

Overall, we've always done as they say we should have
Haven't we, haven't we
We always smiled, we hid all issues away
Didn't we, didn't we

You know the new receptionist at work, she's a Jew
She could visit, he could see she could be me or you
And bring the gay guy downstairs, he doesn't look gay at all
We broke something without knowing, but we did a good job overall
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we

We always smiled, we hid all troubles away
Didn't we, didn't we
What will the neighbours say
Maybe that shaved hair will grown back
Or grandma will have a heart attack

Lund

Two brothers from the south of Sweden came to stay with me
One of them would have gotten my virginity
But he didn't know that back then, did he!
He didn't know that back then.

He went a bit rough on my poetry,
Said: there's no chance in hell this will ever grow to be anything.
He said: I mostly like Dylan myself
I said: Shocking! Well
Then he said something else, I didn't understand
‘Cause he came from the south of Sweden
He spoke just like a Dane

You should have seen these brothers
Freckles all over their pale bodies.
And when they spoke
They made you feel like summer just broke through though it was fall
They made it obvious I was too young, not interesting at all

I always wanted to go to their hometown and knock on their door
And say something interesting and revolting that they'd never heard before
To make them change their minds, after all this time
Look! There was some cool in me, you know
They probably still won't think so

And I'm in Lund again, and nothing's fixed that ever was broken
And I'm in Lund again, and I still don't get things right
And I'm in Lund again, and maybe they have grown up
And maybe they are here
‘Cause there's a glow of spring in the hall tonight
There's a glow of spring in the hall tonight
There's a glow of spring in the hall tonight
There's a glow of spring in the hall tonight

X Telling Me About the Loss of Something Dear, at Age 16

I looked up at the ceiling the entire time
Well it didn't last for long
Like fifteen minutes or so. They had said it would hurt, but it didn't

His face all grumped up, veins were showing on his forehead
Closed my eyes and thought of dancers,
Closed my eyes and thought of dancers

I thought of what my friends would say
I thought of how my life would change
I just laid real still there on the bed.

Afterwards I said, like I hear you're supposed to:
“Was it good for you as well”
He was proud, said: “Ok we can do it again
But maybe this time, you can do it better than this
You can do it better than this.”

I faked to come, because I hear you're supposed to
There was obviously something wrong with me and I didn't want him to know

I was afraid he'd have a heart attack and die
I went to work at the shoe store and waved him goodbye
I felt sad, but I didn't know why

Do you want those in red, I said
250 with laces, I said
Years later, I can still vision that forehead

Middleclass

You and me, let's steal a car
Let's rob a bank, let's travel far
Let's wear these shirts
My grandpa used to wear
And then I'll be happy, I swear

I'll point the gun
You'll keep the engine running
I'll be running to you
You'll be saying
Darling our haircuts aside
We are just like Bonnie and Clyde

I'll probably feel bad for not taking the train
But you'll say it's in the country and it's raining

We'll kick open a cabin in the forest
I'll be scared like I am
You'll put a flashlight under your
And say you're Son of Sam

And I'll slowly pull you out of your Fred Segal
And high on the fact that we're illegal
We'll make sweet loving sweeter, like we do
I'll say baby you're a criminal, and you'll say so are you

You and me, let's steal a car
But first, before we go that far
What's your name, don't look so scared
Don't tell me you weren't thinking exactly the same

Parenting Never Ends

Mother, give me back my old room
I won't make a mess like I used to
I won't play my records

Loud at nights
I'll keep it quiet
Mother, let me have my old bed back
And lay out clothes for me

People give me work and money
They depend on me now
If they only knew how thin the ice they walk on is
If they only knew how thin the ice they walk on is

Mother, please make my decisions
Like you once did this time I won't pester you about it

I'll surrender
Mother, these streets
Are too cold for me
I'm standing by your door
A plant under each arm
Let me move back in

Father, the last time you offered to teach me
All about the Baltic Sea, it was wasted on me
Now I'm ready, throw me once again
The footballs you tried to throw
And this time I will catch and know

Mother, if that's not enough
Bring me all the way back to my original address
To your womb

I have trouble sleeping
But I don't recall I had while in your womb
I have trouble sleeping
But I don't recall I had while in your womb

I have trouble sleeping
But I don't recall I had while in your womb
I have trouble sleeping
But I don't recall I had while in your womb

Anna

You know we could have had a daughter
And we could have named her Anna
And she would have been a sweetheart
But with punk rock manners

She could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

You could have taught her to play hockey
I could have taught her the guitar
And her granddad could have shown her the way to the bar

She could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

We would have made the neighbours jealous
We could have barbecues at nights
With our collected brain resources
She would have an IQ of a hundred and fifty five

She could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

She would have won the Nobel Prize
And thanked her mama for all the good advice
And we could have gone swimming near that cottage by the lake
And she'd never have to know what it's like when your heart breaks

When your heart breaks
When your heart breaks

When your heart breaks
When your heart breaks

She could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside
She could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

She would have married a Kennedy
She would have found the cure for HIV
Well I'm real sorry Anna, you never got to be
'Cause your daddy moved on and left me

She could have supported us when we retire
Bought us a cottage near the countryside

25 Days

Twenty five, twenty five days
That's too much, that's too much
Twenty five, twenty five days
That's too much, that's too much

Twenty five, until I get to see you
Twenty five, until I get to know
If what we just started will have conquered backpacker girls
With newly braided hair and Mano Chao records
It will soon be twenty four
You're so worth waiting for

Twenty four, twenty four days
Still too much, much too much.
Twenty four, twenty four days
Half an hour done just writing this song

Twenty four, I can hear mouths moving
Twenty four, and I nod at what might be the right time to nod
You and I hadn't even met twenty four days ago
I must have been so low
And I didn't even know

Twenty three, Twenty two, twenty one, twenty
Nineteen, eighteen, seventeen, sixteen
Fifteen, fourteen, thirteen, twelve, ten
Because I slept for so long those days
Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
One, one, one, one, one…

I get a text from you
Saying you're off to Havanna airport as we speak.
I start brushing my teeth
Ten minutes later
“Sorry I mixed up the dates”
You stupid fuck, you stupid fuck
You stupid fuck, you need to come back

I'm at Arlanda airport with a famous flower in my hand waiting for you
I see the doors opening, I see the passengers pouring out fresh like gingerbread cookies and wearing
What appears to be new, funky hats, I see from a distance
It's someone I know well You're approaching, I can see it, I take a step forward

Sancho Panza

Sancho Panza, this is me
I'm your Sancho Panza
I get along, I know my ground
With me around
There's room for you to be amazing

I'm the one they don't remember
Were you in our school, they say
I get asked about my name again
Panza, Panza, Panza

Around the boulevards we walk
The sun is always on your face
And I am always in your shade
And I am always the funny one

How I hate being the funny one
I never chose to be her
It strikes me as unfair

And people at our feet to be with us
Such a small comfort
I'm so used to this it turned me creative

Travelling With HS

I'm not stupid, I understand
That it would be convenient
If I was better at conversation

I've learned to master the skill throughout the years
Small talking, but after an hour or so
I mentally die, I mentally die

And I try, I try, I try, I try
But I can't help but loving more
When being on my own and watching everyday lives
And I try, I try, I wish I wanted to go see local churches with you
Or to go clubbing where the young ones do
But all I really want to is watch the everyday lives

My friend, nothing is ever the matter with you
I'm glad to see it, but I don't believe it
You won't have to worry, I'll soon have figured you out
I won't tell you when I have, but I'll find your weak spot
Your weakest spot, oh I'll find it

And here is mine, I try to pretend
That I like to be part of it all
And that I enjoy going out with you
And you and you and you

And I try, I try, I try, I try
But I can't help but dreaming of
Sitting by myself and watching everyday lives
And I try, I try
But I just want to spend more time with my mind
It always surprises me every time
And none of you ever do
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It doesn't mean that I don't

And I try, I try, I try, I try
But I can't help but loving more
When being on my own and watching everyday lives

And I try, I try
But I just want to spend more time with myself
I always surprises me every time
And none of you ever do
It doesn't mean that I don't love you

Arjeplog

The obstacles we build for ourselves, my love
Creating decisions to make, my love
When really, it could be this easy
You and me, and house, and food

Your roots are stuck in the dirt of this land
My questions all answered in the firmness of your hand
I buried some hatred in the snow on the porch
And when it comes undone, I will understand

And the wind in the trees are like
Sch-uuung, sch-uuung
And the trains that pass by are like
Sch-du-dung, sch-du-dung
And you and me are like
Let's go out for a walk

And our feet in the snow are like
Tsch-ooo, tsch-ooo
And the choir in my chest is like
Ooooh, ooooh
And the Stockholm insecurity is like
I don't exist

Night dawns on us now, my love
We finally found a way to lie, my love
Without an arm getting numb
In the middle of us, my love

Don't you get scared of those people now
Who look you in the eye and smile at you now
Yes, they condemn you, but they won't tell
And that's how it goes, my love

And the wind in the trees are like
Sch-ooo, sch-ooo
And the trains that pass by are like
Sch-du-dung, sch-du-dung
And you and me are like
Take your coat on, let's go out for a walk

And the tears in our eyes when we ski fast in the forest
But the choir in my chest is always stuck on the chorus
And I know it's in me to get away from all of this
Though I like this the best, I always liked this the best

The obstacles we build for ourselves, my love
The time we spend making decisions, my love
There's a longing in me for things that yet haven't occurred
So I'll return to you, city, again and again

The Fox, The Hunter and Hello Saferide

I Forgot About Songs

To hear a song like that
To have it spoon your sad little heart
It didn't give me a better outlook on life but it told me
"I've been there too, and I turned it to art"
And that made all the difference to me
That made all the difference to me

And I forgot about songs
I forgot about what they are to me
I forgot how they hold me
How they sooth me and carry me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I forgot about violins
I forgot how they see me
Try me and taunt me
And how they finally breathe me

I forgot about chord changes
Where the base tone stays intact
I forgot about drums and
Voices with a tendency to crack
When they make all the difference to me
They make all the difference to me

There was this September
When all broke through
Turned out all my truths had worn thin
I dangled by a thread from within
But I heard a violin

"I'll hold you my child"
The song said, and it did
It stroke my forehead with pale hands
And slowly carried me to the bridge
And as the chorus arrived
I let go

You're so young
You're so young and you come up to me
And you tell me it helped you through something bad
You say and you hang your head
But this song it helped you through

I get home and I kick my books
Fuck you knowledge
I was never on your team
Never one of your fighters

I was born a romantic for a reason
Not to be loved
To be a songwriter

Dad Told Me

There is sadness in the family, Dad told me
Let's not speak of it, it only brings us down
And there's sadness in the DNA, I've known it
I've felt it in the pavements of this town

I've lived my life
With a backpack that was never mine to carry
Heard its constant whine
Saw its body that was never mine to bury

There's trouble in the genes, Dad told me
Don't ask again, best we don't bring it up
Dad, it seems you can't clear away the smoke of fires you can't find
I've lived my life with a longing that I can't identify
I've been kept from, held from knowing
Daddy, that's why it keeps on growing
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But I found the dead animal the smell stems from
I found the story from which the shadow was cast
I searched and searched and now that I found it
I wanna give it back
I searched and searched and now that I found it
I wanna give it back

There's trouble in the family, I tell you
I know and now that I do
Kid, I'm passing it on to you

But let's not speak of it, son
It only brings us down
But let's not speak of it, son
It only brings us down

I Was Jesus

It was the second day of spring
And sunbeams made love to windows in all the houses
And I was Jesus
And I decided to come down to earth in the shape of a woman this time

And I was Jesus
And I went into the sea
And I took two fishes
And I turned them into millions
And I took five loaves of bread
And fed a country with them
And I said: "Do you believe me now"
"Sorry", they said
"We focused on your wet white cloth as you bent over to pick up the fishes"
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And I was bitter for a while
But then I decided to go at it again

And I was Gandhi
And I came back to earth
In the shape of a woman this time
And the river Ganges
It cleared my vision and I
Well, I guess I was a woman again

And I started my quiet, friendly revolution
And they said: "Oh, a quiet, friendly woman, super rare"
And I tried to convince them it's not a personality
It's a choice and a belief
And: "Would you give me credit for it and can you please follow me"
And they said: "Speak louder, we can't hear you when we're screaming
You look nice now that you don't eat"

And I was Martin Luther King
And I came back to earth
In the shape of a woman this time
And I was both black and a woman
I had two fights to fight so I was burned out
And well, that was it

And I was Jesus
And I went up to heaven Easter Sunday
And I said "I'm never going back to earth"

And the Mother said: "Oh Jesus up til now, you've been paying for Adam's sins
Soon is when the fun begins"
Oh and then, she gave me a date for when this would occur

Parts Of Nature

I stared at a walnut for hours, had time off from work
I was so glad it resembled a brain
"I must be a part of something", I said to myself
If pieces of nature looks the same

I climbed a mountain, just to be sure it was a mountain
I stood at the top and I said: "Man, this surely is a mountain"
I felt a slight comfort as I climbed down
That nature was constant when you fail to be around
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Volcanos, the water I'm boiling, keep on erupting
There is a storm coming in tonight
They're tying their shoes now they're raising their fists
Now they're smacking their lips and they're starting a fight

There's a mathematical model that emulates
How birds fly in flocks, I've heard
There must be a reason I must be a part of
If you can calculate a bird

But I grew up next to a sea
I know all about the surface laying still
When something's building up from underneath
I'm lying still, I'm lying still, always will
I'm lying still, I'm lying still, always will
I'm lying still, I'm lying still, always will
I'm lying still, I'm lying still, always will
I'm lying still, I'm lying still, always will

There's a mathematical model that emulates
There must be a reason I must be a part of

There's a mathematical model that emulates
How birds fly in flocks, I've heard
There must be a reason I must be a part of
If you can calculate a bird

Berlin

Do you miss the sea, though you've never been there
I imagine you would you never went anywhere
Still everyone came to you, if you could meet the sea
Would you like to, would you like to
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Do you miss the sea, though you've never been there
I imagine you would you never went anywhere
Still everyone came to you, if you could meet the sea
Would you like to, would you like to

Berlin
Do you remember when my lover and I
We walked along your river on a cold summer's night
As the sun laid to rest
The drunks came rolling in
And I heard laughter from across the street
And laughter from within

My heart jumped every step we took
My lover wore all white
Berlin, you wore your greenest dress
And we stayed up all night

I whispered to my lover then
"Oh, how blessed we are to walk here"
And I forgot all sorrows
And he forgot to talk

Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never, never, never

But that was many years ago
Berlin, I went too far
I hear you're growing colder
Well, many of us are

Some of us bury our roots deep
We like our seasons to be four
We don't do well with carefree sunshine
And we are not young anymore

Do you recall the greatest lie you told
You made me feel like I could be
Just anything, just everything
Like you could see things hidden in me

Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never, never, never

They say that rain is coming in again
I got us tickets to an early flight
I'll show you how to swim

Raspberry Lips

"Big bang sure knew its way around estetics"
You say as we lay down in the grass
Sun moves closely over the city
Downing on us way too fast

While we argue about your comment
I'll always know we are on the same mission

You are
You're a Darwinist while I
I am religious but lacking a religion
You would build
You'd build science a church
Form a gospel choir with mathematicians
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Anyhow, we are humble tonight
You are a sight and I'm begging I might
Get to kiss your raspberry lips
Humble that all is calm
That the breeze in the air still is warm
That my hand is on your arm

Let's not speak of sorrows waiting
Let's not speak of tomorrow or next year
I have weights of mine to carry
But just for tonight, they have somehow disappeared

Anyhow, we are humble tonight
You are a sight and I beg that I might
Get to kiss your raspberry lips
Humble that all is calm
That the breeze in the air still is warm
That my hand is on your arm

Sing for me, all the voices of this town
Sing for me, sing a chorus of your own

Far beneath the ground we walk on
There's a darkness
There's a darkness
There's a darkness
And it's dying to get out

If we're happy
It will find us
Search with torches
Until it finds us
So I'll close my eyes
I won't think about raspberry lips

The Crawler

Andrea and me, we went swimming last Monday
Swimming last Monday in a community pool
I refused to remove my suit in the shower
Scared that someone might see the scars on my soul
That this autumn left on me

A community swimming pool, it's like a society
Twenty people swimming in a line
Making room for everyone
We work hard to get along
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Then he comes along, the crawler
He doesn't see anyone else, the crawler
He jumps in the middle lane and waves his crawling arms
Visibly damaging the swimming quality for everyone else
The crawler believes because he knows crawling
He gets to crawl over everyone else
"People who breaststroke and can't keep up
They should start crawling themselves"
So says the crawler

Andrea and me, we swam after each other
After each other in the community pool
I'm not good at talking while exercising
If you say something funny, Andrea, I'll drown

My arms in the water get number and number
For every second here I grow stronger
We're in a line, twenty people, we try to get along
I love how we get along

But the crawler keeps crawling, forcing the water
Building forts of waves that hit our faces
Us twenty, we gather around the crawler
We push his face under water
And we wait

We wait for the waves to slow down
We wait for the waves to slow down
We wait for the waves to slow down
We wait for the waves to slow down
We wait for the waves to slow down
And we wait for the waves to slow down

Hey Ho

I knew it first thing I met you
There's something special in us
Our lives will be different
We will stay young forever

We'll know when we get there
And we looked for entrance doors
But somehow we never
And there was no

And when the streets wake up at nights, we'll go there
Singing "Hey, Ho"
Hey hey ho, to the plans that slip away before we have them
Catching soup with forks without lamplight
And everyone else seemed to end up places
While we just sang "Hey, ho"
Hey hey ho, to the sailors that never passes by
To take us along to Brazilian sea ports
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But there is something about him
Like he has never seen the world
Something so pure and decent
I have to destroy it

Or tap it on bottles
And drink it all night
And put a ring on it
To keep it forever

And in a suddent flash of light I'll stand there
Singing "Hey, ho"
Hey hey ho, to the hope I carry with me in my hands
Fragile as newly-born birds or as egg shell

I have something, I know I do
I just need someone else to see it too
To pinpoint it and let me know
What to do

You, my friend, you are no help
You have just as little clue as I ever had
We ask each other for directions
It's as entertaining as it is sad

No, I didn't ask much of him
Only that he'd be all I need
That he'd fill the void in me
Make me stay young forever

And now we roam the streets like tourists
There is panic in our eyes
We pick up every paving stone
Look underneath them for anything

Your head is nowhere safe tonight
I have no idea what to say tonight
We'll take off our boots and run out
Curse and scream at the moon tonight

In a dream I'm on my death bed
Being asked what it's all about
And in my dream I know it
Roaming the streets with your best friends singing "Hey, ho"
But when I woke up
I forgot it

Last Night Bus

I was fifteen, had the shape of a capital L
I still read books about ponies
This girl I got to know said she was throwing a party

A party where boys would occur
Something this cool was unheard of
In my life this far

There were four boys at the party
They weren't special or anything
Apart from the fact they were boys

They were real nice to me
They put on some neo Nazi music
Said it's pretty good, this neo Nazi music

And I hummed along
Tapped my foot along
To the neo Nazi music
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Now, at fifteen, some people are grown up
Have minds of their own
But me, I was a child

I was a piece of clay those days
I could have been molded by anyone
I was a good kid
Just that I could have been molded by anyone

The neo Nazi boys, they were nice to me
They smiled at me and they noticed me
But the best thing that ever happened to me
Is that none of these boys hit on me

I could have demonstrated
Played the bass guitar in a neo Nazi band
Would have been the same in some ways
And someone else in other ways

It's my scariest sliding doors memory
I want it sliced in a shredder thrown out of me

The last night bus was departing
So I had to leave

I see you on the subway
You're thirty and you're into hate
Now, at thirty, some people are grown up
Have minds of their own

And I get a letter from you man
You're fifty and you're into hate
Now, at fifty, some people are grown up
Have minds of their own

But, you got the wrong attention
At exactly the right time
You got the wrong attention

I'm not gonna hate at you because you hate women
I'm not gonna hate at you because you hate colour
I'm gonna wish so hard for someone to give you
The right attention, the right love
To turn this around

That someone's gonna be your last night bus
This night out on the town
That someone's gonna be your last night bus
This night out on the town

Rocky

They spoke to you in terms of "don't"
They used five words or less
They never asked you how you felt
Where we come form, we drink or we suppress

When you cried at two, they smiled at you
Said "Measure up now, little one"
And in school, you bit your lip
When you were hit behind the buildings

Kids tried real hard to make you cave but you didn't
You hit back
It was your reputation's birthday
When they yelled Rocky at you
Because of the punches you threw
Rocky, Rocky
They wanted to be like you

There was discomfort
When emotion started sipping out at inappropriate times
It felt safer to keep it locked up inside
Felt safer to sleep with teeth grinding at nights
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Grinding your teeth, la la la la la la la
Grinding, la la la la la la le
Grinding, you were just like me

And now it's happened, something bad
Made something grow inside of you like a volcano
And it was too big to control
You tried to run away but it ran after you

You're scared as shit as you're letting go
But as you do I love, I love, I love
I love you more

Rocky, you're a human now
Society tried to smother you
But never could
Caged up men everywhere
Led to believe that weakness is not a strength
You must lead them now, you must lead them

I loved you before
But now when you lay your head on my lap
And you say it's too much
I love you more
I loved you before but now
When you're arming up to fight your own head
I love you more
I loved you before but now
When you're speaking like you're not sure
I love you more
I loved you before I love you Rocky
I love you more

When you put down your gloves
Let us share the pants
You can carry my load
And I'll carry yours
I love you more
When you're speaking like you're not sure
I love you more
I loved you before but now
When you're arming up to fight your own head
I love you more
I loved you before I love you Rocky
I love you more

When you put down your gloves
Let us share the pants
You can carry my load
And I'll carry yours
I love you more
When you're speaking like you're not sure
I love you more
I loved you before I love you Rocky
I loved you before I love you Rocky
I loved you before I love you Rocky

This Body

This body
That's only done me wrong
That always proved weak when I needed it strong

That lays down to rest
When I need to run
That refuses to go just on
This body whose neck and shoulders are steady as thread

This body
That's only let me down
Whose head was always turned up to ten

That wasn't chosen
To be on anyone's team
Was picked last and never fought hard enough

It finally spoke out
Said "We need to see what this is about"

Oh, body
How I have wished of you
That would look different than you do
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm sorry
I feel apologetic
You had better things to do

You had an agenda
And I never saw that
You're growing a kid now, it's sprouting like hell now
I'm suddenly dirt

It's like finding a hidden door
In the house you always lived in
With a secret room, and it holds diamonds and pearls

You're a rock and you're the sea
You're the fox and you're the hunter
You're not less and you're not more than anything

You're your mother and your father
You're their mothers and their fathers
Let your shoulders down, you're not going to war

Non Albums Tracks

2006

Party favours on the floor
And a half drunk bottle with a popcorn in it
Yesterday's dress in a complete mess
And a bruise on my arm, I don't know how I got it
January 1st and it's already clear
It's gonna be another shitty year

This years resolutions
I will exercise more
Call my grandma
Tell my family that I love them
Learn about the world wars, and forget
I will learn a new word each day
Today's word is dejected

And on the top of the list there's you
I'm gonna be with you
I haven't told you yet
But I'm gonna be with you

Doorbell's ringing, I ordered pizza
Came half through it, wish I hadn't eaten so much, had some more
Watching Ivanhoe on TV
Picturing me as slacker Marion
Wished for a life this year, it's brand new
But the only thing that's true
I'm gonna be with you
I haven't told you yet
But I'm gonna be with you
I haven't told you yet
I'm gonna be with you

Ipod X-Mas

( Oh No... It's Christmas! - 2006 )

They say It's coming on to christmas
Hello Saferide, lot of candle in the christmas tree
They say It's gonna be all parties and carols
Well I disagree
Well I disagree

You left on the 10th of december
Guess there'll be no nobel award from me
Far as standing outside by your window, shouting
"I disagree"
"I disagree"
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And as for present, you fuck, I had an Ipod nano
With your name written on it
It's gonna fit well into my new life listening
To Gloria Gaynor, singing
"I will survive"

They say there's suppose to be three wise men
I've been searching but I haven't found a single one
Angels brought a baby to a virgin me
I'll just settle for some good old fun
Settle for some good old fun

And as for present, you fuck, I had an Ipod nano
With your name written on it
It's gonna fit well into my new life listening
To Gloria Gaynor, singing
"I will survive"

And as you're on your way
Merry christmas, you just ruined my favourite holiday

I Was Definitely Made For These Times

( There's A Razzia Going On, Volume 1 - 2008 )

Looking at old photos of Grandma's Grandma,
Making a quilt, looking after the kids.
Hating school, I made my teacher in shop cry
I am far too restless
Kids are cute as long as they're not mine
Wait up

I was definitely made for these times
I can make the meanest daiquiri
I can quote all of high fidelity
I was definitely made for these times
Would have gotten stoned or ridiculed
Maimed or trampled
Or died from poor nutrition
Wait up
Up-up-up-up-up

There have been times I thought it might be good though
If Mum and Dad could have chosen a man for me
Someone from the neighborhood with well-bred charms
Guess I'd still have thrown myself in the arms of you
Wait up-up
Up-up-up-up-up

I was definitely made for these times
A woman should obey her man
Sure - when he can do the things I can
I was definitely made for these times
Going in to Church on Sundays, ruining my TV fun day-ay

Wait up-up
Wait up-up
Wait up-up

I'll be holding you when you cry
I'll be holding you when you cry
I won't commit to you but I'll hold you when you cry (I'll be holding you when you cry)
I won't commit to you but I'll hold you when you cry (I'll be holding you when you cry)
I won't commit to you but I'll hold you when you cry (I'll be holding you when you cry)
I won't commit to you but I'll hold you when you cry (I'll be holding you when you cry)
I won't commit to you but I'll hold you when you cry (I'll be holding you when you cry)
I won't commit to you but I'll hold you, hold you, hold you when you cry (I'll be holding you when you cry)
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I was definitely made for these times
I can make the meanest daiquiri
I can quote all of high fidelity
I was definitely made for these times
Would have gotten stoned or ridiculed
Maimed or trampled
Or died from poor nutrition
Wait up-up
Wait up-up
Wait up-up

Last bitter song

Now, this will be the last bitter song
It will be my last, real bitter song about you

From now on, I'll write about flowers and butterflies
Chickens and kittens and shit
From now on, I'll try to look myself straight in the face
From now on, I'll try to find someone who knows I exist

Not to feel like I do
When I write my bitter songs
This is my last real bitter song
About you

I won't have to mention she was blonde and thin
With a peanut for a brain and volleyballs for chest
I won't have to mention that's always what happens
When you leave him your key
Ends up having sex in your apartment with miss non-bitterness

Now this will be the last bitter song
I'm feeling cheerful already
I'd like to break his neck, if I may, if I may

But most, I'd like to cut off that head
And cut off that hair
And cut off those volleyballs

And I hope he gets her heart broken
And I hope she turns bitter, really really bitter
Really really bitter, really really bitter
Like me

Leaving you behind

How I wish you'd lied, or had been untrue
That you hadn't said: “it's always you.”
Baby how I wish you hadn't held me all those lonely, lonely nights
But you did, makes me wonder why
Makes me wonder why, I'm leaving you behind

And I know I'm gonna see you down town
with a pretty girl, and you'll be holding hands
You'll both be laughing
And she will be wondering the same as me
Was I crazy
You know I've got to be crazy for leaving you behind
I'm leaving you behind

Oh I'm such a worthless being
Ruining all we've got for
Some kind of feeling that there's more than this
How I wish there was more than there is

Re: always on my mind

If you say that you're the one
How come you always bring me down
How come you always bring me down
If you say that you're the one

And if I'm always on your mind
How come you've been so hard to find
How come you've been so hard to find
If I'm always on your mind

You left me looking like a fool, boy
You left me yearning for your love
Thought about leaving just to
Let you know that I am not for granted
Guess I am for granted

And when night has turned to day
I'll never leave you anyway
I'll never leave you anyway
When the night has turned to day

You left me looking like a fool, boy
You left me yearning for your love
Thought about leaving just to
Let you know that I am not for granted
Guess I am for granted
Guess I am for granted

If I'm always on your mind
How come you've been so hard to find
How come you've been so hard to find
If I'm always on your mind

The best night of your life

I saw you as soon as you entered the door
I knew I was right not to leave before
From this stupid masquerade party we're at
Yeah yeah yeah

I came here dressed like Audrey Horne
You came here dressed like Salieri
Well Amadeus is making out with Joey Ramone

Don't think we've met
Only in my dreams every night
Well nice to meet you
I won't let you out of my sight
Oh no that's wrong
Then how could it feel so right
You don't know it yet but it's the best night of your life

Boy, you've got the dark voice as the devil's
Why are you standing there chating to pebbles
And I've got a penguin checking me out
Yeah, yeah yeah

Boy, you've got the soft eyes of a poet
I know that all of that is bullshit
I've seen that you've got a carpenters hands

I've got to go
Don't act older than you are
But I've got work
Get working and go to the bar
I've got a girlfriend
She doesn't have to know where you are
You don't know it yet
But it's the best night of your life

The quiz

You look nice alright
And I like the way you nod after everything I say
Like it actually means something to you

And I like your record collection
Townes and Jens with a hint of Ricky Lee
And you've cleaned up the bathroom
Made a really nice soup
But a bit too much sci-fi in your shelf with DVD's

There are things you need to know about me
I'm weak right now, so weak right now
I need proof before I dare to open this heart
So I prepared a quiz for you

Would you freak out if I said I liked you
Do you walk the line
Is your IQ higher than your neighbour's
And is it very much higher than mine

Can you sleep when I grind my teeth
Do you look away if I slob when I eat
Will you let me be myself
Can you at all times wear socks
Because I'm still scared of feet

And if I'd fall
Would you pick me up
And if I'd fall
Would you pick me up

Do you talk in the middle of Seinfeld
Do you read more than two books a month
Do you get racist or sexist when you've had a few
Is it fine if I make more money than you

Have you slept with any people I work with
Is there anyone you'd rather wish I'd be
Do you still keep pictures of old girlfriends
Are they prettier than me

And if I'd fall
Would you pick me up
If I'd fall
Would you pick me up

And if I'd fall
Would you pick me up
If I'd fall
Would you pick me up

Valentine's Day

I won't tell you, baby, you drink too much
This year, on Valentine's Day
And I won't see you looking at that girl's butt
This year, on Valentine's Day
I won't remind you I'm not for granted
Won't have to beg you to take a shower
I won't even cry cause you don't love me enough
This year, on Valentine's Day

Got my bags packed and I'm bringing the dog
Going too fast on the highway
Lost my love for me when I loved you
Gonna reclaim it all on Valentine's Day
True love at last, on Valentine's Day

Gonna have dinner with the coolest girl
Although she's been broken down during this stay
Just me, myself and my biggest laughter
Candle light dinner on Valentine's Day

And then, I'll go dancing at the finest club
Find a kid who's ready to play
Gonna get all the pleasure you never could give me
This year on Valentine 's Day
True love at last, on Valentine's Day

So I hope you are sorry and I wish you the worst
And that's all I had to say
I think we have fish sticks if you need dinner
This year, on Valentine's Day
Got a feeling this is gonna be valentine's year

Roses are red and violets are blue
And sugar is sweet and I'm leaving you
Roses are red and violets are blue
And sugar is sweet and I'm leaving you
Roses are red and violets are blue
And sugar is sweet and
