Since they first burst onto the scene with the release of their classic debut album Melody A.M back in 2001, Norwegian electronic music overlords Röyksopp have only released three further studio albums. First came 2005’s more experimental The Understanding, then 2009’s extrovert, pop-lead Junior followed swiftly by its more introvert sister album, Senior. That was back in 2010. Four years later, however, and following a burst of creativity instigated by personal upheaval and the general living of lives they’re about to release their second album in the space of six months – following Do It Again, their collaborative mini-album with fellow Scandinavian legend, Robyn – in the shape of the multi-faceted, The Inevitable End. “We feel there’s a lot of music out there that just doesn’t have any identity – something that we really strive for in our music,” says Torbjørn of the time it takes between releases. “We don’t feel like we’re in any hurry; we intend to make music we cannot find elsewhere – which is both ambitious and time consuming” agrees Svein. “And we also want our music to have longevity, therefore we always seek to produce and engineer it in a way that steers clear of generic production trends.”

As with most things Röyksopp do there is a multi-faceted reason behind the album’s title, The Inevitable End. While they’re keen to point out that it doesn’t mark the end of Röyksopp, they do see it as their final album. “We feel like this is a goodbye to the traditional album format,” explains Svein. “In our consecutive run of albums, we have been able to say what we want to say and do what we want to do with the LP. We’re not going to stop making music, but the album format as such, this is the last thing from us.” Having now created five complete bodies of work, the pair feel like the future is open to being more experimental with how they share their music, be it with EPs, one-off singles or something more visually focused. “With Melody A.M we felt like we established our own voice and take on electronic music. Then, with The Understanding, we wanted to move slightly off-centre and experiment more – without losing what is uniquely identified as Röyksopp. With Junior we wanted to be a bit more extrovert, focusing on vocals and youthful energy. With Senior, we wanted to flip it around completely; instrumental, introvert and hidden,” continues Svein. “With The Inevitable End we’ve moved into a darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive.” “With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it’s the last one we make,” adds Torbjørn. With a story running from the opening, fuzzy electronics of Skulls – with its teasing “if you want to ride” mantra – to the closing, fan-dedicated Thank You, this is an album to be enjoyed from start to finish; a complete story that takes you from A to Z.

The title also relates to the album’s core themes of loss (be it emotional or physical), the passing of different eras in people’s lives and the effects of conflicting emotions, themes that are showcased exquisitely in Monument (T.I.E. Version), the epic collaboration with Robyn that acts as bridge between Do It Again and The Inevitable End’. Re-worked for this album, its power is even more magnetic. “I think it’s fair to say that the two records are dwelling on the same themes. This album has a strong lyrical content and I think that’s more evident than on any of our other albums – I guess writing songs and working closely with Robyn has had an effect,” says Svein. “Without being too gloomy or dark, there’s been turmoil in our lives. And prior to making Do It Again, Robyn was in a similar space, which is one of the reasons why we’re so compatible.” With the two records being worked on simultaneously, The Inevitable End may share a similar headspace to Do It Again, but this is very much a quintessentially Röyksopp album, even if that definition is itself brilliantly malleable. “We’re always looking to push certain boundaries, but there’s something there that’s been there all the time and that binds it altogether,” explains Torbjørn. “We’re not keen on repeating ourselves.” So while the opening track Skulls feels like a classic Röyksopp song – all squelchy bass lines, filtered synths and vocodered, yet soulful vocals – the album also takes in sophisticated, delicate heartbreak on the Man Without Country collaboration Sordid Affair; odd, shape-shifting ambience on the Robyn-featuring Rong; bouncing electro pop on the deceptively upbeat Save Me (featuring regular contributor Susanne Sundfør on vocal duties) and the deliriously sad, cry-on-the-dancefloor classic, I Had This Thing, one of four collaborations with Jamie Irrepressible. In fact, as with all their albums, the importance of picking the right vocalist for each song was paramount. “We always want to find the right voice matching the specific sentiment of a track,” states Svein. “And the people we’ve been fortunate enough to work with, are people who not only possess brilliant vocal abilities individually – they also in their own unique way, bring their own universe with them,” he continues. “We are inviting them to collide their universe into ours. It’s not about having a voice for hire. We want the people we work with to feel like they can involve themselves to the fullest – it’s about finding the perfect voice for our state of mind,” adds Torbjørn.

At the core of the album is this universal sense of conflicting emotions and choice; in pursuit of fulfillment, how far can you go? Should one heed one’s conscience or succumb to one’s desires – albeit the moral ramifications? And then there’s doubt and denial. And the battle between reason and desire, that’s summed up perfectly on I Had This Thing as Jamie softly flits between the lines “I still don’t know just what I’ve done” and the emotional final mantra of “I never meant to let you go” while a cavalcade of electronic textures descends around him. But while the lyrics deal with darker themes, this isn’t a musically introspective album. This is a cohesive, fully realised electronic symphony from a pair of production geniuses constantly looking to innovate. “Senior, for example, is very introspective; both secret and raw production-wise. The Inevitable End, on the other hand, has a very clean and crisp production in comparison,” explains Svein. “We wanted this pristine surface to act as a contrast to the grittier subject matter that lies beneath. At first listen, one might get the impression that T.I.E is a place of solace and bliss. But if you pay attention to the lyrics, you’ll tap into the somber undercurrent running through it all – as if the music is bleeding. This is not a dance album at all. This is home listening as far as we’re concerned. It’s headphones music.” All you need do is pop them on, sit back and let Röyksopp take you into their own special world again.

So Easy

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue, now that we are through

(Phone noise)

Hello
Yeah it's me
I wanna give you some good frequencies
1710, 2.6, 2245...
Yeah
3032, 400
Four hundred
Yeah
I'm coming right over
Do that
I'll be there in two seconds

(Phone down)

Sparks

No matter gay or grim
It's those tiny little sparks
Daily life that makes me
Forgot my wounded heart

It doesn't matter when
It may rain or it may shine
Blurred memories of us
Come back from time to time

No matter gay or grim
It's those tiny little sparks
Daily life that makes me
Forgot my wounded heart

It doesn't matter when
It may rain or it may shine
Blurred memories of us
Come back from time to time

No matter gay or grim
It's those tiny little sparks
Daily life that makes me
Forgot my sulky heart

It doesn't matter when
It may rain or it may shine
But you will always be here
Stored inside my mind

Come, I'll give you all my love
Suck some air
Tell me what I'm dreaming of
Oh, whoa, oh...

Maybe within a thousand years
You'll be here
Maybe within a thousand tears
Oh, whoa, oh...

Can I be so alone?
Can I be so alone?

Oh, whoa..
La la la la...

Have you due in time
Reunite as one
Please, I almost find you

Poor Leno
Where you'll be, I'll go
Where you'll be, I'll know
Where you'll be, I'll find you

Poor Leno
Having to be told
Being nine years old
Means I'll always find you

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

Remind Me

It’s only been a week
The rush of being home in rapid fading
The failing to recall
What I was missing all that time in England

Has sent me aimlessly
On foot or by the help of transportation
To knock on windows where
My friend no longer live, I had forgotten

And everywhere I go
There’s always something to remind me
Of another place in time
Where love that travelled far had found me

We stayed outside ‘till two
Waiting for the light to come back
We didn’t talk I knew
Until you asked what I was thinking
Until you asked what I was thinking

Brave men tell the truth
The wise men tools are analogies and puzzles
A woman holds her tongue
Knowing silence will speak for her

Brave men tell the truth
The wise men tools are analogies and puzzles
A woman holds her tongue
Knowing silence will speak for her
Will speak for her

And everywhere I go
There’s always something to remind me
Of another place in time
Where love that travelled far had found me

The Understanding

Only This Moment

Ok
Only this moment
Holds us together
Close to perfection
Nothing else out there
No one to guide us
Lost in our senses
Deep down inside I know our love will die
Ok

Only this moment
Holds us together
Lost in confusion
Feelings are out there
Scared of devotion
Doubting intensions
Deep down inside i know our love will die

Stay or forever go
Play or you'll never know
What heaven decided
You can't deny
It's all you've been waiting for
Ok

Stay or forever go
Play or you'll never know
Your spirit's divided
You will decide
If I'm all you've been waiting for

Clouds in my head have been parted with grace
By the voice of an angel revealing her face
And her words they make sense and I do understand
Falling in love isn't a part of a plan

Forces within me mix reason with lust
But I'll try to accept that and not make it worse
'Cause I know I might loose it by taking the chance
But love without pain isn't really romance
Ok

Only this moment
Holds us together
Close to perfection
Nothing else out there
Always beside her
Trusting my senses
Deep down inside I know love will survive

Only this moment
Holds us together
Close to perfection
Nothing else out there
Always beside her
Trusting my senses
Deep down inside I know love will survive
Ok

Follow My Ruin

Down below a faded glow
Vibrant key without a tone
Realise in here it's cold
I can only let it snow

Words were said so long ago
Left a mark, an open sore
You go fast, I'm burnin' slow
Hate to say, I knew you'd go

So much going on
And I wish to hold on
So much going on
And I cannot let go

Past the trees that hide our love
Hurry now its time to go
Make this moment matter more
Show me like you did before

Revolting in a broken home
Holding on to what we own
Worlds collide and cause a storm
Still I wish I could hold on

Words were said so long ago
Face defeat and take the blow
So naive now I know more
Won't forget the things before

So much going on
And I wish to hold on
So much going on
And I cannot let go
Cannot let go...

Beautiful Day Without You

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fate less)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (ah)

Like rays of gold (I honestly can)
Now can I (forget the pain)

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fate less)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (without you)

Feeling spoiled
In this world
Fighting beliefs
Now can I

I
Know
My
Tragedy

Notion took about
Still I wonder how
Morning after rain
Clear away the pain

Then after all
When all are gone
It's plain to see
Just who we are
In the light of hate
The way we talk
Enacting shame
Causing harm
Defend yourself
And keep your guard
We realize
We belong apart
'Cause we entice
We've got ways of knowing

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fate less)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (ah)

Like rays of gold (I honestly can)
Now can I (forget the pain)

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fate less)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (without you)

Feeling spoiled in this world
Fighting beliefs
Now can I

When I'm alone
And all are gone
The painted leaves
Onto the sun
In the light of god
I see myself
Improving things
Oh every day
The open sky
The breathing stars
When .... Come
In a world apart
'Cause in these times
There's no way of knowing

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fate less)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
Beautiful day without you (ah)

Like rays of gold (I honestly can)
Now can I (forget the pain)

Living on my guard (guarded)
Wind is on my neck (fate less)
Sun is on my face (have courage)
A beautiful day without you (without you)

And still I'm spoiled
Feeling refined
This beautiful day
Makes me sigh...

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

What Else Is There

It was me on that road
But you couldn't see me
Too many lights on, but nowhere near here
It was me on that road
Still you couldn't see me
And then flashlights and explosions

Road's end getting nearer
We cover distance but not together
I am the storm and I am the wonder
And the flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

I don't know what more to ask for
I was given just one wish

It's about you and the sun
A morning run
The story of my maker
What I have and what I ache for
I've got a golden ear
I cut and I spear
And what else is there

Road's end getting nearer
We cover distance still not together
If I am the storm, if I am the wonder
Will I have flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

There is no room I can go and
You've got secrets too

I don't know what more to ask for
I was given just one wish

Circuit Breaker

What is that vitalizing sound
Calling me
In my head
Repeatedly
What is that visionary sight
Before my eyes
So prominent
So mesmerizing turbulent

You've got a hold on me
Your ingenuity
Seems to be driving me down on my knees
The force you generate
You reinvigorate
Your body talks and overstates

Well I'm already drawn
Close to the divine
Intoxicating images are rushing through my mind
Embodiment of sin
Has kindled me within
Sensations seems to multiply
They're building up inside

Cutting through the night
Radiating light
I've seen you move the crowd
I know what you're about
The stories I have heard
The talk about excess
I know what people say
But surely you impress

Charismatic pill
You elevated sun
Vanity and pride
Added into one
A universal force
An autonomic high
A thing I can't control
No matter how I try

What have you done to me
This candid chemistry
Emotions running over me
And when you arch your back
Just with a stare like that
Well it's natural to interact

Well I'm not holding back
Ready to commence
Caught up in your blizzard
So confusing and intense
Synergy of two
Energy gone wild
See the stars align
To spell your name out in the sky

Never seen this sight
So fascinated by it
A symmetry between
Dirty and pristine
Calling out so loud
Beautiful and true
Mystery about
Everything you do

Charismatic drug
You elevated sun
Vanity and pride
Added into one
A universal force
An autonomic high
A thing I can't control
No matter how I try

This electricity
Injected into me
Emotions running over me
And when you're getting close
You touch my innermost
A feeling deep inside me knows

Wonders of delight
Cutting through the night
Known you got it all
I can't do without
Burning in my veins
Ripping through my soul
I'll never be the same
A secret can't be told

Charismatic pill
You elevated sun
Vanity and pride
Added into one
A universal force
An autonomic high
A thing I can't control
No matter how I try

Someone like me

Someone like me
With someone like you
How unlikely
Too good to be true

Someone like me
With someone like you
How unlikely
Too good to be true

Something's be trying to hold me down
And leave me no hope on the battleground
I'm knocking on doors, "Come on", let me in
Desperately craving the feminine
Then you came to me
Genuinely
How could I get Lucy like this
What have i done

This type of things is just a fantasy
The story is laid out so wretchedly
Like out of a film or a magazine
Appeal to the classical masculine
But gradually
It's dawning on me
This isn't like a dream
This is for real

Being yourself
What does that mean
Seeing yourself is the hardest thing

Someone like me
With someone like you
How unlikely
Too good to be true

Timing your movements so accurately
Hearing you breathing so musically
Unity strengthening rapidly
Knowing you'll always come back to me
You're never to close
Or far away
Perfect somewhere in-between
Vintage machine

Seeing it's already time to leave
I got to go out, i need space to breathe
Go before everything's caving in
Understand that, oh my heroine
But someone like you
So hard to believe
Sure this is not just a dream
Wake up and see

Being yourself is a lonely thing
If you never pick it up and just let it ring
Someone like me
It's what i've always dreamed of
With someone like you
More than satisfactory
How unlikely
It's real you're here beside me
Too good to be true
Come on, let's share this moment

Dead To The World

In the dead of the night you seem closer to me
The next day I wake up and know how unreal it is
Feeling so tense like I'm caught in a corner
You can't speak but I can hear you calling
I come back for you

I've been dead to the world and I've chosen to be
Inside under pillows with marvels and wonders
Sedating my will to exist in the open
I don't move but I keep on moving
I'm only with you

*** Thanx a lot to Jean-Paul for this one ***

Junior

Happy Up Here

You know I really like it
I know I'll always be here
You know it makes my heart beat
You know I'm happy up here

World
What you got for me
Just bring it on
What's it gonna be
I'm ready for it
People
What you got for me
Just bring it on
What's it gonna be
I'm ready for it

You know I really like it
I know I'll always be here

Whatever you do
Whatever you say
Nothing can push
The feeling away

It's here in my heart and
It's here in my head
I feel like I'm part of a book I read

And every page and every paper
Seem to be part of human nature
Sending me back down memory lane
My favou record is playing again

You know I really like it
I know I'll always be here
You know it makes my heart beat

The Girl and The Robot

I go mental every time you leave for work
You never seem to know when to stop
I never know when you'll return
I'm in love with a robot

In the night I call you up and
Wanna know when you coming home
Don't deny me call me back
I'm so alone
In the night I wait up for you
Even though you don't want me to
Go to bed and leave the lights on
What's the use

So you want to understand me
You just see what you want to see
There's no way I can help you out
You don't know what it's all about

Fell asleep again in front of MTV
God I'm down at the bottom
No one's singing songs for me
I can't wait for tomorrow

When you're gone and the rain stats falling
I'm just sitting here by the phone
Don't deny me call me back
I'm so alone

When you gonna come back
I just got to know
When you gonna come home

Baby, I can't stand it when you go to work
You never seem to know when to stop
I never know when you'll return
I'm in love with a robot

Vision One

There was a time when all the shadows of these tall buildings
Would throw their cape around each corner of the grassy fields
And one by one each huge shade would colour the green with black
Allowing changes that we could not have foreseen

Everybody let us gaze upon the world we've created
Let us rest out eyes upon the great machine as we wave goodbye
Feel the evening breeze caress us while the cities are dying
As we watch it fall into a modern state, a modern time

Remember when we'd hear the distant sound of human life
A zillion noises whimper as they travelled through the sky
And one by one each new sound has faded away with time
Allowing changes that we could not have foreseen

Everybody let us say goodbye to all our notions
'Cause it's not enough to say that we're humane when we're left behind
It's too late to think that we can worship human emotions
'Cause we've already evolved into machines in our minds

This Must Be It

Waiting for a beam to break through here
A Janeway vision all bright and clear
The talk and they dance

I was expecting something pure with golden hair
Arms full of bracelets and smoke in the air
They talk and they dance

Here comes darkness just after noon
Waiting for a sign
If I survive I'll worship the moon
Well something, anything...

This must be it
Longed-for bliss
First it was so quiet
Now I know I'm not alone in here

And they talked and they danced

Two elements collide in my open head
Making me a viewer
I am water and sand
And they talk and they danced...

You hand on my head speak friendly to me
I've been serving for years patiently
Is this as far you can take me

This must be it
Longed-for bliss
First it was so quiet
Now I know I'm not alone in here

And they talked and they danced

This must be it
Longed-for bliss
First it was so quiet
Now I know I'm not alone in here

This must be it
Longed-for bliss
First it was so quiet
Now I know I'm not alone in here

And they talked and they danced

Miss It So Much

I miss it so much
A button to touch
A dial to turn
A key to hold

Days turn to nights
Turn to weeks turn paper
Into rocks, into plastic
My material heart, how it keeps us apart

Watching days turn to nights, turn to weeks
Turns everything I got into techniques
My mechanical heart, how it tears me apart

I miss it so much
A button to touch
A dial to turn
A key to hold

I miss it so much
A button to touch
A flick of a switch
Hand on my heart

Days turn to nights
Turn to weeks turn paper
Into rocks, into plastics
My material heart, how it keeps us apart

Watching days turn to nights, turn to weeks
Turns everything I got into techniques,
My mechanical heart, how it tears me apart

I miss it so much
A button to touch
A dial to turn
A key to hold

I miss it so much
A button to touch
A flick of a switch
Hand on my heart

Tricky Tricky

Six's afraid of seven cause seven ate nine
I'm about to loose it a second time
Staring at the wall hour after hour
Running up and down
Over and over

It's a tricky tricky this little one too
What if it is a lunatic we'll name it after you
Put it in your pocket and pick it up
We're here to entertain
Show them what you've got

Six's afraid of seven cause seven ate nine
I'm afraid of loosing the pieces I find
If I was made equal is this what I get
A bunch of stories to interpret

Be ready to rock it like Rock n'Roll
You are the flower in glittering gold
Sleeping in a palm
The palm of my hand
They show you who to follow
It looks like a man

Six's afraid of seven cause seven ate nine
I'm about to loose it a second time
Staring at the wall hour after hour

Sleeping in a palm
The palm of my hand
They show you who to follow
It looks like a man

Put it in your pocket and pick it up

Sleeping in a palm
The palm of my hand
They show you who to follow
It looks like a man

You Don't Have A Clue

It's late in the night
The dancing is done
The music has died
We're ready to run

But you don't have a clue
This party hasn’t ended yet
Not for me and you
And now you're just pretending, yeah

You're hiding from yourself
Guess you are, yes you are
Like golden rays of sun
In the cloud

We're meant to be one
I know we are
If I am the sky
Then you are my star

Hey, you don't have a clue
This party never ended
Not for me and you
I know you're just pretending, yeah

You're hiding from yourself
Guess you are, yes you are
Like golden rays of sun
In the cloud

I will make you see
Haven't you got, haven't you got it yet
Just lay down for a while
Next to me

Didn't mean to make you panic
Didn't mean to put you off
Baby, it's the way that you got me
I listened to my heart and it did jump high
When you asked me how
Can I show you how
I need your love now

True To Life

When I walk up to your door
When I walk into your room
And open windows

Can you hold it in your hand
Can you make me understand
The tension, the pressure

And I know just it means
To be left out all alone
I got it just like that

I wanna go right back again
I wanna give you everything

Troubled eyes, equipment of my heart
An all-the-time-reflecting-on-why heart
Funny how the gamegot all twisted
Like day and night never existed

Could I be more true to life?
Tell me how did I become
Half my real self

Wanna reach and touch the skies
Wanna end the lonely nights
The breathless hours

And I know just what it means
To be left out all alone
I got it just like that

I wanna go right back again
I wanna give you everything

It's What I Want

All that I want
Is keeping it easy
All that I want
Is keeping it easy

It's what I want
That’s easy.
It's getting it
That's complicated

It's what I want
That’s easy
It's getting it
That's complicated

All that I want
Is keeping it easy
All that I want
Is keeping it easy

It's what I want
That’s easy
It's getting it
That's complicated

It's what I want
That’s easy
It's getting it
That's complicated

It's what I want
That’s easy
It's getting it
That's complicated

It's what I want
That’s easy
It's getting it
That's complicated

All that I want
Is keeping it easy
All that I want
Is keeping it easy

The Inevitable End

Skulls

If you want to ride with us tonight
If you want to ride with us tonight

We will be the hands that lift you up and
We will be the hands that hold you high
We will make you say our name forever
We will make you want another try
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If you wanna ride
Skulls

If you want to ride with us tonight
If you want to ride with us tonight

We will be the life you always wanted
We will be desire in your blood
We will be the answer you desire
We will be salvation in the flood

We will be the hands that make you wonder
We will be the hands that strike you down
We will make you scream our name forever
We will make you go another round

If you wanna ride

Monument

( Feat. Robyn )

Make a space for my body
Dig a hole, push the sides apart
This is what I'm controlling
It's the mould, the inside that I carve

This will be my monument
This will be a becon when I'm gone, gone, gone
When I'm gone, gone, gone
When I'm gone

Soon that when that moment comes
I can say I did it all with love, love, love
All with love, love, love
All with

Make a space for my body
Dig a hole, push the sides apart
This is what I'm controlling
It's the mould, the inside that I carved
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
This will be my monument
This will be a becon when I'm gone, gone, gone
When I'm gone, gone, gone
When I'm

Make a cast of my body
Pull back out so that I can see
Let go of how you knew me
Let go of what I used to be

Soon that when that moment comes
I can say I did it all with love, love, love
All with love, love, love
All with love, love, love, love, love
All with love, love, love

Sordid Affair

( Feat. Man Without Country )

There was a time
Dark and divine
Exciting and new
Shameful untrue

Free to explore
We had it all
Towering trust
Insatiable lust

Clouding the truth
Both of us knew
This sordid affair
Is ending in tears

Yes, we must go on
Knowing the wrong
Hunting the day
It was taken away

Oh all our love
Fell down
To Earth
Here, broken and cold
With grave remorse

Be for a while
It all made sense
It might have been just a dark pretense
But you had me
And I loved it

To be with you
To be the one
To live a lie
It really got me all excited
I felt wanted

Then in the dark
The sorrow inside
Was taken away
Deliverance came

Fell from the sky
Heaven replied
Salvation in streams
Silent and clean

All that we were
All that we knew
Faded away
With tears in the rain
Yes, all that we were (all that we were)
All that we knew (all that we knew)
Is fading away (is fading away)
Like tears in the rain
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
All that we were
All that we knew
Fading away

All that we were
All that we knew
Fading away

All that we were
All that we knew
Fading away

All that we were
All that we knew
Fading away

You Know I Have To Go

( Feat. Jamie Irrepressible )

You know I have to go
There's nothing more to say
'Cause you're better off alone
It's got to be this way

You know I have to go
There's nothing more to say
Surely you will know
In the light of day
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I've learnt how to stay gracious in defeat
'Cause I've never been victorious (victorious)
And now you offer me to feel complete
You've given me your trust (me your trust)

'Cause I wanna give the honesty you need
Nothing false or dubious (dubious)
I want us to be all that we can be (we can be)
I want this for the two of us (two of us)

You know I've got to go (you know I've got to go)
There's nothing more to say (there's nothing more to say)
Surely you will know (surely you will get to know)
In the light of day

Wish I had the courage to explain
To let myself be heard
I wish there was a way to break the chain
But I struggle with the words

Say you wanna take me to your bed
But it's hard to know
Maybe it's because we're off our heads (our heads)
Or maybe this is love (maybe this is love)

Save Me

( Feat. Susanne Sundfør )

It's already on
Once again
And I didn't know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I am the sun
I'll always return
Once more

Follow the line
Let go of my heart
Fade in to the night

I go where I want
In places where
Wrong feels right

Oh save me
The ocean is dark
Oh save me
I'm falling apart

I'm coming down hard
Hard as hell
Like the night before

Bracing myself
Alone on the
Bathroom floor

Oh save me
The ocean is dark
Oh save me
I'm falling apart

Should I choose
To feel this way
I know I could
I never fail

And if the world
Is too mundane
Just bring it on
I'll go again

I Had This Thing

( Feat. Jamie Irrepressible )

I had this thing to call my own
Just one slip and it was gone

A minor flaw and then it fell
I brought this house down on myself

I didn't know just what I'd done
I didn't know just what I'd done

I don't remember anymore what I used to be
Where is the quiet piece of home where I could breathe
Just like a razor to my soul when I'm alone
Oh I had this thing to call my own
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm so confused, I cannot see
This wave of guilt is drowing me

It feels like blood is on my hands
I'd give it all for a second chance

I still don't know just what I've done
I still don't know just what I've done

I don't remember anymore what I used to be
There was a fire burning strong inside of me
Just like the soothing loving warmth of summer sun
Oh I had this thing to call my own
I had this thing to call my own
I had this thing to call my own

I never meant to let you go
I never meant to let you go
I never meant to let you go
I never meant to let you go

I never meant to let you go (to let you go)
I never meant to let you go (to let you go)
I never meant to let you go
I never meant to let you go
To let you go
To let you go
To let you go

Rong

( Feat. Robyn )

What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you

What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You're just so fucking wrong (what the fuck is wrong with you)
What the fuck is wrong with you
You're just so fucking wrong (what the fuck is wrong with you)
What the fuck is wrong with you
You're just so fucking wrong (what the fuck is wrong with you)
What the fuck is wrong with you
You're just so fucking wrong (what the fuck is wrong with you)
What the fuck is wrong with you

What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you
What the fuck is wrong with you

Here She Comes Again

( Feat. Jamie Irrepressible )

Here she comes again
Troubles on her brown
Here she comes again
The worries she can't hide
Who can stop the rain pouring down inside
Who can keep us safe and give a piece of mind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Here she comes again
Covered up in black
Such a pretty face
Such a sorrow in her eyes
Do you wanna know what's killing her inside
Do you dare to walk the alleys of her mind

Here she comes again
Troubles on her brown
Here she comes again
The worries she can't hide

Will you let it show
Will you cross the line
Would you take her home
Tell her she'll be fine

Running To The Sea

( Feat. Susanne Sundfor )

I could hear them howling from afar
I saw them rushing to your car
In a moment I went screaming wild
Until the darkness killed the light

I remember running to the sea
The burning houses and trees
I remember running to the sea
Alone and blinded by the fear

And the river flows beneath your skin
Like savage horses kept within
And all is wasted in this head
Like breaking diamonds with your hand
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I remember running to the sea
The burning houses and trees
I remember running to the sea
Alone and blinded by the fear

And the river flows beneath your skin
Like savage horses kept within
And all is wasted in this head
Like breaking diamonds with your hand

And the river flows inside of me
And the river flows inside of me
And the river flows inside of me
And the river flows inside of me

Compulsion

( Feat. Jamie Irrepressible )

I never meant to be this way
Never thought that I could change
Untl you woke me with your touch

And now they see it in my eyes
You're the craving of my life
Want you more than words can say

You're in my head
In my head

You touch my skin, you keep me warm
Bring me closer to the sun
You're the reason, my desire

I feel serenity in all
Heavy waves of gentle love
Soothing whispers from the stars

Oh, in my dreams
In my dreams
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Such a singleminded lust
To be there once is not enough
You change your point of view once stung

This is where I want to be
No anxiety or fear
A quiet moment in your arms

If you could see just what I've seen
If you could see just what I've seen
If you could see just what I've seen
If you could see what I have seen
Would you believe

Thank You

Thank you
Forever
For the things you've done

Nothing
Could be better
Than to say it

Thank you
Forever
For the things we are

Nothing
Is so easy
As they say it is

So thank you
My brother
For the things you've done

Knowing
You'll never walk away
Like I did
You know

Thank you
Forever
For the things we are

No one
Can see inside of me
Like you do

Thank you
For the hours
In the orange sky

Brother
You will always be
A part of me

And thank you
For the courage
When I go too far

Knowing
You'll never walk away
Like I did
You know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Thank you
Forever
For the things we are

No one
Can see inside of me
Like you do

So thank you
For the hours
In the orange sky

Brother
You will always be
A part of me

And thank you
For the courage
When I go too far

Knowing
You'll never walk away
Like I did
You know

Do It Again

( RYXP Version / Feat. Robyn )

Don't care what they say
It hurts so good
I don't wanna stop
I know I should

We do what we want
And as soon as it's done
We just do it again
Let's do it all
And when we come down
We just do it
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And then it arrives
The moment before
The anticipation
You know it's like mmm mmm mmm
Wait for it
wait for the buildup
And then let's do it again

We do what we want
And as soon as it's done
We just do it again
Let's do it all
And when we come down
We just do it again

If we just do it again
If you stay around
We'll just do it again

We'll just do it again
We just do it again
Do it again

Something In My Heart

(Featuring Jamie Irrepressible)

You say that time can't heal
Broken heart you stole
I don't know what's real

You are what I can't be
You are what I can't be

You say that time can't heal
Broken heart you stole
I don't know what's real

You are what I can't feel
You are what I can't feel

Oh something in my heart
Something in my heart
Makes me miss you more
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh something in my heart
Something in my heart
Makes me miss you more

Say that time can't heal
Broken heart you stole
I don't know what's real
I don't know what's real

You are what I can't feel
Oh something in my heart
Something in my heart
Makes me miss you more

Oh oh oh
Oh something in my heart
Something in my heart
Makes me miss you more

Oh oh oh
Oh something in my heart

Makes me miss you more

Oh something in my heart
Still you're in my heart
Makes me miss you more

Kids are in their bed
Wife is in the shower
Song is in my head

Nothing on my plate
My love is in the garden

One more time

Don't Give Up

( The Whitest Boy Alive cover / Live at Black Sessions 03-04-2002 )

Give me a reason to stay constantly ignored
Give me an angle that I haven't tried before
A guarantee for being honestly compared
You want to live when life is achingly unfair

Don't make a move you'll look ridiculous again
You share no interest but it's easy to pretend
Don't start the action it will turn against you soon
No one is going to follow and you'll stand there like a fool

Don't give up
Don't give up

Don't give up
Don't give up

You left the people when the people left you out
Back in the suburbs you're craving for the crowd
Only minded now with defeats of yesterday
The mantra spinning in your head will keep it raised

Give me a reason to stay constantly ignored
I don't think I can
Give me an angle that I haven't tried before
Not from where I stand
A guarantee for being honestly compared
Could not be found
You want to live when life is achingly unfair
Stick around

Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up

Don't give up
I don't think I can
Don't give up
I don't think I can
Don't give up
I don't think I can
Don't give up
I don't think I can
Don't give up
I don't think I can
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up

Every Little Thing

(Do It Again EP)

Robyn:

Been alone in here forever
Waiting in the dark
If you only knew me better
Opened up your heart

Hey
Every little thing I say
Every little thing I do
You should really know by now
Baby
Every little thing I say
Every little thing I do
You should really know by now
It's for you

I've been waiting here forever
For you to come inside
Even though I never told ya
God knows how I tried
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hey
Every little thing I say
Every little thing I do
You should really know by now
Baby
Every little thing I say
Every little thing I do
You should really know by now
It's for you

Baby
Why you fought it
When you know I'm waiting
When you know I'm waiting here

Baby
Why you fought it
When you know I'm waiting
When you know I'm waiting here

Baby
Why you fought it
When you know I'm waiting
When you know I'm waiting here

Baby
Why you fought it
When you know I'm waiting
When you know I'm waiting here

Go away

I don’t want nothing from you
I don’t wanna know you
I had time to find out
What you’re all about

Every time I turn around
Your face is in the paper
Your voice is on the air
And all the stations later
Guess you are everywhere

It don’t mean shit to me
Just wanna make it clear

Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
Don’t wanna hear your name
Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
On the any any way

Your face gets around me
You just don’t stun me
I’m not interested
With the time you invested

As I turn around
Your face is in the paper
Your voice is on the air
And all the stations later
Guess you are everywhere

It don’t mean shit to me
Just wanna make it clear

Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
Don’t wanna hear your name
Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
On the any any way

Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
Don’t wanna hear your name
Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
On the any any way

You’re coming on too strong
The way you carry on
Just leave a little peace
This … must now seize

I was here, I was fine
I was doing it alright
Now you’re in my head
The feeling inside is dead

I was safe, blissful peace
Staying in my home-world
Now that’s history
See what you’re doing to me

Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face
Just go away
Don’t wanna hear your name
Just go away
Don’t wanna see your face 
Just go away
On the any any way

Just go away
I’m not in it anyway...

Go With The Flow

( Queens Of The Stone Age cover / Röyksopp's Night Out Live EP )

She said "I'll throw myself away
They're just photos after all"
I can't make you hang around
I can't wash you off my skin

Outside the frame
Is what we're leaving out
You won't remember anyway

I can go with the flow
Don't say it doesn't matter with the flow (matter anymore)
I can go with the flow (I can go)
Do you believe it in your head

It's so safe to play along
Little soldiers in a row
Falling in and out of love
It's something sweet to throw away

I want something good to die for
To make it beautiful to live
I want a new mistake, lose is more than hesitate
Do you believe it in your head

I can go with the flow
Don't say it doesn't matter with the flow (matter anymore)
I can go with the flow
Do you believe it in your head
Do you believe it in your head
Do you believe it in your head

Ice Machine (Godlike Edit)

(Depeche Mode cover / LateNightTales LP)

Running through my head secretly
The shout of the boys in the factory
I'll ring you on the telephone silently
Like blood, like the wine in the dark room scene
The dark room scene
Oh dark room scene

A letter once composed
Seven years long
And as tall as a tree
Written on the wall efficient
Efficiency
Efficiency
Oh efficiency

Resurrect
As a feeling
On my window
Of a past reunion
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Resurrect as a feeling on my window
Of a past reunion
Visions of a picture like the city
And the air we breathe
The air we breathe
Oh the air we breathe

She stood beside me once again
I knew her face
We met before in the street
Recalling all the children dancing at our feet
Their dancing feet
Oh dancing feet

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

Running To The Sea

Susanne Sundfør:

I could hear them howling from afar
I saw them rushing to your car
In a moment all went screaming wild
Until the darkness killed the light

I remember running to the sea
The burning houses and the trees
I remember running to the sea
Alone and blinded by the fear

And the river flows beneath your skin
Like savage horses kept within
And all is wasted in the sand
Like breaking diamonds with your hand
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I remember running to the sea
Remember falling to my knees
I remember gliding up the shore
Until I touched the ocean floor

And the river flows beneath your skin
The savage horses kept within
And all is wasted in the sand
Like breaking diamonds with your hand

And the river grows inside of me
And the river grows inside of me
And the river grows inside of me
And the river grows inside of me

Twenty Thirteen

Jamie McDermott :

Twenty thirteen
Oh what a night
The DJ moved the crowd

Twenty thirteen
Still in my heart
The music and the stars

Oh twenty thirteen
Oh what a night we've had

And we were cheering for bass lines
And slurred rolls, and they'd sell some smoke

Oh magic

And they were bringing us trays of wine
And any kind of alcohol and coke

Twenty thirteen
Oh what a night we've had
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Memories we share will live on and on and on and on and on and on
Memories we share will live on and on and on and on and on and on
Memories we share will live on and on and on and on and on and on
Memories we share will live on and on and on and on and on and on

Were You Ever Wanted

(Junior Japanese bonus track)

Were you ever wanted
Were you ever needed
Were you ever wanted
Were you ever needed

Were you ever wanted
Does your mother love you
Were you ever wanted
Does your father care

Annie wont you come and meet me
Where the neon lights are shining
Annie wont you dance behind me
Don't give up let music save you
Annie have you ever felt the need of someone else to see you
Annie come here don't you worry, we are here for you to lean on

Were you ever wanted
Were you ever needed
Were you ever wanted
Were you ever needed

Were you ever wanted
Does your mother love you
Were you ever wanted
Does your father care

Annie don't you feel abandoned, we are here to soothe your sorrow
Annie have I ever told you, live today there's no tomorrow
Annie did you reconsider just because your daddy told you,
Annie don't you listen to him, just give in and feel the rhythm

Were you ever wanted
Were you ever needed
Were you ever wanted
Were you ever needed

Were you ever wanted
Does your mother love you
Were you ever wanted
Does your father care
