Absolutely brilliant debut release from young Norwegian duo consisting of Susanna WallumrÝd (vocals) and Morten Qvenild (keyboards). Nine beautiful low key original songs plus highly personal interpretations of Dolly Partonęs "Jolene" and Leonard Bernsteinęs "Who Am I" makes this one of the strongest Norwegian debut releases in a very long time. If youīve heard "Believer" (also included here) from "Money Will Ruin Everything" you know what to expect. Produced by Andreas MjÝs (Jaga Jazzist) and Deathprod.

Albums don't come much more beautiful than List of Lights and Buoys. Susanna is singer Susanna Karolina WallumrÝd, age 23 at the time of this debut CD. The Magical Orchestra is actually Jaga Jazzist keyboardist Morten Qvenild. And the music doesn't sound orchestral at all. Co-producer Andreas MjÝs (also of Jaga Jazzist) adds some vibes, timpani, guitar, and electronics. Helge Sten (aka Deathprod and a quarter of the group Supersilent) is the other co-producer; he took care of mixing and mastering duties ó one also suspects he tweaked a few electronic textures himself. But despite a certain variety in the instrumentation and an indisputable audacity in the textural dress-up, List of Lights and Buoys relies solely on the strong songwriting team of WallumrÝd and Qvenild, and on Susanna's irresistibly moving, seductive torch singer of a voice. With a desire to nail the listener to his or her chair right from the start, the album opens with two highly personal interpretations. Leonard Bernstein's "Who Am I" is born out of and sent back to an electronic fog through which Susanna's voice appears like a divine lighthouse. Dolly Parton's "Jolene" provides the album's highlight, a showcase for Susanna's genuine torch singing and Qvenild's sensitive, minimal arrangements. The duo's songwriting is then allowed to shine, especially in "Friend," "Distance Blues and Theory," and the gripping "Believer"; the latter was also released on the Rune Grammofon two-CD (plus book) compilation Money Will Ruin Everything. These songs are strong examples of timeless songwriting ó the electronic vestments give them a certain edge, but don't distract from their true qualities. A must-have and one of the most promising debut albums of the year.

Who Am I

(Words written by Leonard Bernstein)

Who am I
Was it all planned in advance
Or was I just born by chance in July
Who on earth am I
My friends only think of fun
They're such a curious lot
Must I be the only one
Who thinks these mysterious thoughts
Some day I'll die

Will I ever live again
As a mountain lion
Or a rooster or a hen
Or a robin, or a wren, or a fly
Oh, who am I

Do you believe in reincarnation
Do you believe in reincarnation
Were you ever here before
Have you ever had dreams
That you knew were true
Some time before in your life
Have you ever had that experience
So you must question
All the truths that you know
All the love and the lifes
That you know and say
Who am I

Will I ever live again
As a mountain lion
Or a rooster or a hen
Or a robin, or a wren, or a fly
Oh, who am I

Jolene

(Words written by Dolly Parton)

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep and
There's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you
Please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you
Please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Turn the pages

Aching joy
Breaking fever
Run through my head tonight
Got a boy he's a true believer
Ask him to be in sight

Where are all these people coming from
Where do all these accidents belong

I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

Sometimes I have got some days of travelling around
Sometimes I have got these days of travelling far behind

Where are all these people coming from
Where do all these accidents belong
Why is all this happening to me
Is this joy as good as it can be

I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

Know the book
Know the story
Felt this joy
Felt that glory
Saw myself like no other man
Can I turn the pages like the old man can

I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

Friend

My good friend tells me to be wise
I say why bother, you know
I cannot find what's wrong or right
To me they're all in disguise
And their disguises look so good
I cannot find what's true or false
That makes no difference to my friend
He will stand by me, and this he tells me

This life is just for living
I can't tell you what it'll bring
There are good times, there are hard times
There are reasons why we cling to what we want to be
What we want to see

My good friend tells me to be smart
I say why bother, you know
I cannot find what's mind or heart
To me they kind of look the same
And when he shows me all the lies
I tell him to go to the devil
That makes no difference to my friend
He will stand by me, and this he tells me

"This life is just for living
I can't tell you what it'll bring
There are good times, there are hard times
There are reasons why we cling to what we want to be
What we want to see

But when he's gone
Who's to hold me
Who's to call me
Who's to make me rise again
Make me smile and then
Who's to tell me

This life is just for living
I can't tell you what it'll bring
There are good times, there are hard times
There are reasons why we cling to what we want to be
And what we want to see

Hello

Who are you to
This very special way
Listen
Goodbye

Hello
Hello at my doorstep
Hello in my street
Hello at my doorstep
Hello in my street

Who are you to touch me in this very special way
Who are you to comfort me and then you walk away
Who are you to listen to my stories of goodbye
Turning up the next day to say

Hello
Hello at my doorstep
Hello in my street
Hello at my doorstep
Hello in my street

Who are you to step on me this very special way
Who are you to feed me and then you run away
Who are you to touch me touch me
Who are you to sing my song of happiness and joy
Who are you to sing my song of happiness and joy
Turning up the next day to say that I'm your

Hello
Hello at my doorstep
Hello in my street
Hello at my doorstep
Hello in my street

Believer

Didn't think you would trust me
Thought you would see what I see
These days have been good for me too
But I can't stay
You know why

Didn't want this to end like this
Thought I might could convert
These nights have been sad for me too
But I don't pray
You know why

You are a believer
I am not
You are a believer
I am not

You are a believer
I am not
You are a believer
I am not

Didn't think I could ever love
So I had to destroy it all
But you will do find someone new
When I am gone
You know why

You are a believer
I am not
You are a believer
I am not

You are a believer
I am not
You are a believer
I am not

Sweet devil

Sweet devil lives across the street
He waves at me in daytime
Sweet devil lives across the street
He waves at me in daytime
From behind the curtains

At nighttime he comes out
To seduce me in the dark
Playing his guitar
Dancing with the stars
Makes me fall in love again
But look who's gone
In the morning

Baby

Only one moment lost in thought
Sets me back to see where i've been going
Only one hour of you and me
Carries my mind to brand new places
Seldom seen before

Where's that baby now
Stayed with us for an hour or so
Where did that baby go

Only a couple of lives to change
Just a new thought to point out new directions
Only one hour of you and me
Let's my mind find that sorrow
Seldom seen before

Where's that baby now
Stayed with us for an hour or so
Where did that baby go

All these hours lost in thought
You wil follow and point out places
Seldom seen before

Where's that baby now
Stayed with us for an hour or so
Where did that baby go

Time

When future is present
And past is gone
Now is shallow
Nothing is big
So that I can't see

When past is present
And future goes
Now is foggy
And past is pink
So that I look back

Now is future
And past is gone
Now is nothing
Future is great
So that I can't see

Will I see even if the days are getting short
Will I see even if the days are getting shorter
Will I see

When future is now
And past is past
Nothing is shadow or fog or nothing
So that I see everything

Will I see even if the days are getting short
Will I see even if the days are getting shorter
Will I see

Distance blues and theory

 (Words written by Dorothy Parker)

Where you to cross the world my dear
To work or love or fight
I could be calm and wistful here
And close my eyes at night
It were a sweet and gallant pain
To be a sea apart
But oh, to have you down the lane
Is bitter to my heart

Into love, and out again
Thus I went, and thus I go
Spare your voice, and hold your pen
Well and bitterly I know
All the songs were ever sung
All the words were ever said
Could it be, when I was young
Some one dropped me on my head

Go

Going for laughter
Go on slow
Go any faster
Will you stay
Or will you explode

Going for answers
Go on slow
Go any faster
You won't know

Melody mountain

Hallelujah

( Leonard Cohen Cover )

Well I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
Well I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth
I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

It's A Long Way To The Top

( AC/DC Cover )

Riding down the highway
Going to a show
Stop in all the byways
Playing Rock 'N' Roll
Getting robbed
Getting stoned
Getting beat up
Broken boned
Getting had
Getting took
I tell you folks
It's harder than it looks

It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll
It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll

If you think it's easy
Doing one night stands
Try playing in a Rock 'N' Roll band
It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll

Hotel motel
Make you wanna cry
Lady do the hard sell
Know the reason why
Getting old
Getting grey
Getting ripped off
Under-paid
Getting sold
Second hand
That's how it goes
Playing in a band

It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll
It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll

If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out it's rough and mean

It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll
It's a long way to the top if you wanna Rock 'N' Roll

These days

( Matt Burt Cover )

This life, just another tuning
And our hopes in a basket gone ballooning
As we stand and wait for them to land

In the morning and in the evening
Now Iím coming and now Iím leaving
Can you tell me which way did I go

In the morning and in the evening
Now Iím coming and now Iím leaving
Can you tell me which way did I go

Whatís sweet and whatĎs a flower
Who will bear fruit in the final hour
Oh, these days

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

Condition Of The Heart

( Prince Cover )

There was a girl in Paris
Whom he sent a letter to
Hoping she would answer back
Now wasn't that a fool
Hardy notion on the part of
Sometimes lonely musician
Acting out a whim is only good
For a condition of the heart

There was a dame from London
Who insisted that he love her
Then left him for a real prince from Arabia
Now isn't that a shame that sometimes money
Buys you everything and nothing
Love, it only seems to buy
A terminal condition of the heart

Oh thinking about you driving me crazy
Oh my friends all say it's just a phase
But oh every day is a yellow day
I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard

There was a woman from the ghetto
Who made funny faces just like Clara Bow
Now was I to know that she would wear
The same Cologne as you
And giggle the same giggle that you do
Whenever I would act a fool
The fool with a condition of the heart

Oh thinking about you driving me crazy
Oh my friends all say it's just a phase
But oh every single day is a yellow day
I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard

Love will tear us apart

( Joy Division Cover )

When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways
Taking different roads

Then love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed
Our respect run so dry
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives

And love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep
All my failings expose
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just can't function no more

When love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Crazy, crazy night

( Kiss Cover )

People try to take my soul away
But I don't hear the rap that they all say
They try to tell us we don't belong
That's alright, we're millions strong
This is my music, it makes me proud
These are my people and this is my crowd

These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights

Sometimes days are so hard to survive
A million ways to bury you alive
The sun goes down like a bad bad dream
You're wound up tight, gotta let off steam
They say they can break you again and again
If life is a radio, turn up to ten

These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

( Bob Dylan Cover )

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It'll never do somehow
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelling on
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
And it ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
I wish there was something you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talking anyway
So don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in calling up my name, boy
Like you never done before
It ain't no use in calling up my name, boy
I can't hear you anymore
I'm thinking and I'm wondering walking down the road
I once loved a man, a child I'm told
I give him my heart but he wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's all right

So long, honey babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, babe
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't saying you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right

It's raining today

( Walker Scott Cover )

It's raining today
And I'm just about to forget
The train window girl
That wonderful day we met
She smiles through the smoke from my cigarette

It's raining today
But once there was summer and you
And dark little rooms
And sleep in late afternoons
Those moments descend on my windowpane

I've hung around too long
Listening to the old landlady's hard-luck stories
You out of me me out of you
We go like lovers
To replace the empty space
Repeat our dreams to someone new

It's raining today
And I watch the cellophane streets
No hang-ups for me
'Cause hang-ups need company
The street corner girl's a cold trembling leaf
It's raining today
It's raining today

Enjoy the Silence

( Depeche Mode Cover )

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little boy

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Fotheringay

( Sandy Denny Cover )

How often she has gazed
From castle windows o'er
And watched the daylight passing
Within her captive wall
With no-one to heed her call

The evening hour is fading
Within the dwindling sun
And in a lonely moment
Those embers will be gone
And the last of all the young birds flown

Her days of precious freedom
Forfeited long before
To live such fruitless years
Behind a guarded door
But those days will last no more

Tomorrow at this hour she will be far away
Much farther than these islands
Or the lonely Fotheringay

Intruder

Soft, immense
And warm intruder
Welcome to our universe
Welcome to the planet earth
We will guide you, carefully
Supply you
Till you return to outer space

Soft, immense

Welcome to the planet earth
Welcome to our universe
We will protect you, carefully

This feels like something impossible
Like I cannot I cannot I cannot
Still Iíll try

Soft, immense

Born in the desert

Hold your horses
Have you gone mad
Or are you just feeling
Sad

Hold your horses
Have you lost it
Or do you just wanna quit

She was born in the desert
She has never seen the sea
She wants to get up and leave now
But she is not free
As you and me

Hold your horses
Have you gone mad
Or are you just feeling
Sad

Hold your horses
Have you lost it
Or do you just wanna

They have never seen the sea
They want to get up & leave now

Hangout

Hangout here with me a little longer
Hang in there hang out here
With me a little longer
Hang in there hang out here
And when you are not here
I wish you were here
I wish you were near
Breathing the same air

Hangout here with me a little longer
You could be wiser, younger, older
Hang out here with me a little longer
Could be more truthful or stronger
And when you are not here
I wish you were here
I wish you were near
Breathing the same air

So you showed me the blackbirds
And you played me a song
You made me go on
Hangout here with me a little longer
Why canít you why canít you
Hang out here with me a little longer
Canít you see canít you see
That when youíre not here
I wish you were here
I wish you where near
Breathing the same air

So you showed me the blackbirds
And you played me a song
You made me go on

People living

Who is God and where is God and what is he
Doing for you
Is it easy to pretend
Is it hard to look back at you
What is real and what is good for all of us
How can it be
That your convictions are gonna be valid
To me
How can it be

People living on the outside
Living on the wrong side
Living on the outside
Living on the wrong side

What is true and who is true and where is
The truth now for you
Is it hard to confess to yourself
Is it easy to view
Who are wrong in your eyes and what will
Do to satisfy
How can it be that you want us
To simplify
How can it be

People living on the outside
Living on the wrong side
Living on the outside
Living on the wrong side

Stay

Oh, itís hard to feel alive
Living a lie
Hiding inside

Oh, itís hard to be a fool
For the devil in you
Who did me wrong

Have been waiting for a reason to stay
Will it come
Will it come
Today

Iím gonna stay this time
Iím gonna stay this time
Iím gonna stay
Right here, with you

Oh, itís hard to saw a seed
In the frozen soil
And make it grow

Oh, itís hard to turn around
Leave behind
All Iíve ever known

Have been waiting for a reason to stay
Will it come
Will it come
Today

Iím gonna stay this time
Iím gonna stay this time
Iím gonna stay
Right here, with you

For you

Heís playing in a rockīn roll band
And he really knows who I am
All the things I like
And the things I donít
Weíre both stubborn as hell
Guess Iím the most
Sorry,
For bringing you down
Sorry,
For being a clown
Sometimes I think itís over
Sometimes I think I canít make it up to you no more
But

All my love is for you my dear
All my love is for you my dear
It goes through eternity
It goes through eternity

I used to live a rockīn roll life
Offering free rides in my soul
Rambling, stumbling through peopleís lives
Through my life
Living like a soldier
Fighting a war
Sorry,
For bringing you down
Sorry,
For being a clown
Sometimes I think itís over
Sometimes I think I canít make it up to you no more
But

All my love is for you my dear
All my love is for you my dear
It goes through eternity
It goes through eternity

Better days

The lack of moral in this town
Have been tearing me down
So like a dragon in a cave
I am burning my way out of here
Tired of running round and round
Tired of being somewhat bound

Better days are coming
Better days will come

Better days are coming
Better days will come
For sure

The lack of substance in your say
Have been chasing my way
So like a fowl in a cage
I need to find a time for escape
Tired of spinning round and round
Tired of feeling somewhat bound

Better days are coming
Better days will come

Better days are coming
Better days will come
For sure

Traveling

Take a look at the ocean
And what do you see
Where are you heading
Are you thinking about me
And all the things you left behind

Take a walk on the wild side
And what do you see
Where are you heading
Are you thinking about me
And all the things you left behind

We are all traveling
But where do we go
Wanna see some answers
Will we ever know

Take a look at your lover
And what do you see
Where are you heading
Are you thinking about me
And all the things you left behind

Take a walk at the inside
And what do you see
Where are you heading
Are you thinking about me
And all the things you left behind

We are all traveling
But where do we go
Wanna see some answers
Will we ever know

Demon dance

Youíre assigned
On a mission so cruel
Oh so vain

Holding my heart like only the devil can
Holding my heart like only a godsent can

Your intentions
Are obvious to me
Oh the pain

Holding my heart like only the devil can
Holding my heart like only a godsent can

You claim
Your possession of me
I claim
Independence from thee

Holding my heart like only the devil can
Holding my heart like only a godsent can

Itís hard to say, are you an angel or a demon
Who captures me and makes me one of your believers
Come all ye faithfulÖ

You intend
To keep hurting me
I admit
Gonna keep on loving you

Holding your heart like only the devil can
Holding your heart like only a godsent can

Jailbreak

( Thin Lizzy Cover )

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in this town
See me and the boys we don't like it
So we're getting up and going down

Hiding low looking right to left
If you see us coming I think it's best
To move away do you hear what I say
From under my breath

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in the town
Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
So don't you be around
Don't you be around

Tonight there's gonna be trouble
Some of us won't survive
See the boys and me we mean business
Busting out dead or alive

I can hear the hound dogs on my trail
All hell breaks loose, alarm and sirens wail
Like the game if you lose
Go to jail

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in the town
Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
So don't you be around

Tonight there's gonna be trouble
I'm gonna find myself in
Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
So woman you stay with a friend

Don't you be around
Don't you be around

Can't Shake Loose

( Agnetha Faltskog Cover )

I don't want stay here but I can't leave
I'm in the spell of the magic you weave
Somebody wake me up
I wish I could break it up

I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
Any move I'll make in the end I will lose

I can't shake loose
I try and I try but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking to your door

I wanna hide but when I hear you call
I turn around, I know I would fall
One step people shake
No matter what move I make

'Cause I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
Any move I'll make in the end I will lose

I can't shake loose
I try and I try but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking to your door

I don't wanna stay here,
But you know I can't leave
Please let me go dear
Please let me leave

I can't shake loose, I can't shake loose
I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
Any move I'll make in the end I will lose

I can't shake loose
I try and I try but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking

I can't shake loose
I try and try, but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking to the door

Who Knows Where The Time Goes

( Sandy Denny Cover )

Across the purple sky
All the bird are leaving
But how can they know
It's time for them to go

Before the winter's fire
I will still be dreaming
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

Sad deserted shore
Your fickle friends are leaving
Ah and yet they know
It's time for them to go

But I will still be here
I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

And I'm not alone,
While my love is near me
And I know it will be so
Till it's time to go

So come the storms of winter
And then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

And who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

Vicious

( Lou Reed Cover )

Vicious
You hit me with a flower
You do it every hour
Oh baby, you're so vicious

Vicious
You want me to hit you with a stick
But all I've got's a guitar pick
Oh baby, you're so vicious

When I watch you come
I just want to run far away
You're not the kind of person
Around whom I want to stay

When I see you coming down the street
I step on your hands and I mangle your feet
You're not the kind of person that I even wanna meet
Oh baby, you're so vicious

Vicious
You hit me with a flower
You do it every hour
Oh baby, you're so vicious

Vicious
Why don't you swallow razor blades
You must think I'm some kind of gay blade
Baby, you're so vicious

When I watch you coming
I just have to run
You're not good
And you certainly aren't very much fun
When I see you walking down the street
I step on your hand and I mangle your feet
You're not the kind of person that I even wanna meet
'Cause you're so vicious
Vicious, vicious
Oh baby, you're so vicious

Without You

( Badfinger Cover )

No I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes it shows

No I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
When I had you there
But then I let you go
And now it's only fair
That I should let you know
What you should know

I can't live
If living is without you
I can't give
I can't give anymore

I can't live
If living is without you
I can't give
I can't give anymore

Well I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes it shows

I can't live
If living is without you
I can't give
I can't give anymore

I can't live
If living is without you
I can't give
I can't give anymore

Dance On

( Prince Cover )

Grenade launcher roars in a television sky
Tell me how many young brothers must die?

Dance on, dance on
Dance on, dance on

Little talk Johnny blew the big score
The gang nailed his feet to a wooden floor
Nuclear ban never stays in tune
They all know the words but the music is doomed

Dance on, dance on
Dance on, dance on

A bass guitar in spider webs longing for the funk
Uzi gun takes its place in a wagon trunk
Stealing ladies' purses then setting them aflame
M&M killers playing Mickey Mouse games

Dance on, dance on
Dance on, dance on

It's time for new education
Former rules don't apply
We need a power structure that breeds production
Instead of jacks who vandalize

What color is your money today
What color is your money today
What color is your money today
What color is your money today

Joy And Jubilee

( Bonnie Prince Billy Cover )

There's no reason to be seen
No one knows where I have been
Where I have been
I mean love is what I mean

Joy, joy and jubilee
Joy, joy and jubilee
Joy, joy and jubilee
Joy, joy and jubilee

This is what I want to be
Everything inside of me
Inside of me
Where only shoes should be

Joy, joy and jubilee
Joy, joy and jubilee
Joy, joy and jubilee
Joy, joy and jubilee

Everything
Is on the wing
And every face
Is in a hidden place

Janitor Of Lunacy

( Nico Cover )

Janitor of lunacy
Paralyze my infancy
Petrify the empty cradle
Bring hope to them and me

Janitor of tyranny
Testify my vanity
Mortalize my memory
Deceive the Devil's deed

Tolerate my jealousy
Recognize the desperate need

Janitor of lunacy
Identify my destiny
Revive the living dream
Forgive their begging scream

Seal the giving of their seed
Disease the breathing grief

Changes

( Black Sabbath Cover )

I feel unhappy
I feel so sad
I've lost the best friend
That I ever had

She was my woman
I loved her so
But it's too late now
I've let her go

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

We shared the years
We shared each day
In love together
We found a way

But soon the world
Had its evil way
My heart was blinded
Love went astray

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

It took so long
To realize
And I can still hear
Her last goodbyes

Now all my days
Are filled with tears
Wish I could go back
And change these years

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

Don't come around here no more

Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
Whatever you're looking for
Don't come around here no more

I've given up
I've given up
I've given up
On waiting any longer
I've given up
On this love getting stronger

I don't feel you anymore
You darken my door
Whatever you're looking for
Don't come around here no more

I've given up
I've given up
I've given up
You tangle my emotions
I've given up
Honey please admit it's over

Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more

Stop walking down my street
Don't come around here no more
Who did you expect to meet
Whatever you're looking for
Don't come around here no more

Forever

( Roy Harper Cover )

We're just spinning leaves
In the flight of dawn
Little girl
Falling through an eternal horizon of time

But as we lie here
I'd like to think
That all we've got will be ours forever

Don't you think we're forever
Don't you think we're forever

I can hear a voice
On the wings of my dream
Little girl
Melting me into love as it touches my heart

But sheltered in the distance of your sleep
Is all that I could love in a lifetime

Don't you think we're forever
Don't you think we're forever

Open your eyes
To the call of the winds
Little girl
Can't you hear them all saying
I'll always be yours

Lying in the misty morning sun
The pillow of the night still beneath you

Don't you think we're forever
Don't you think we're forever
Don't you think we're forever
Don't you think we're forever

Lay all your love on me

( Benny Andersson, BjŲrn Ulvaeus / Abba Cover )

I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice

But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned
I beg of you

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily

I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long
And they've been pretty scarce
I used to think that was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible

'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned
What can I do

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

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

Recall

Do you remember
When we first held our arms tight
Around each other
And we thought we would stay that way
Do you recall
Do you recall

Do you remember
When we chose
To be truthful
To our union
Our ode to commitment
Do you recall
Do you recall

Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong

Do you remember
When we first turned against
Ourselves
And each other
Let loose of the separation
Do you recall
Do you recall

Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong

Calling for a rescue squad
Calling for a bed of solution
To get some rest for the un-calm hearts
To lie down in a bed of solution

Calling for a rescue squad
Calling for a bed of solution
To get some rest for the un-calm hearts
To lie down in a bed of solutions

Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong

Game

Wondering what I lost
Think about what it did cost
For a lot like me to stay alive

Figure out what I'll need
Don't know how much I must bleed
For everything to be all right

Can we square this with ourselves
Will we find the truth in the same place

Wondering what I became
Life is a silent game
When a lot like me should stay alive

No one controls the heartgame
Maybe we'll like to stay the same for a while
No one owns this wallflower
I just need sensation of OK for a while

No one controls the heartgame
Maybe we'll like to stay the same for a while
No one owns this wallflower
I just need sensation of OK for a while

No one controls the heartgame
Maybe we'll like to stay the same for a while
No one owns this wallflower
I just need sensation of OK for a while

Palpatine's Dream

Palpatine's dream
In a hiddeous world
Valentine's scream
From a silvery curl

Floating away
On a tray of myself
Doing just fine
I walk the line

Staying on track
For things never seen
It's like palpatine's dream
It's a heavenly steam

'Cause we're sober and sane
And we're doing alright
When we're facing the pain
Shall we take up the fight

In a colourful world
Where nothing goes wrong
Will we do just what we're told
Are we singing our song

Is everything well
Is everything fine
Are we following tracks
While we're walking the line

Like in palpatine's dream
The darkness gives trust
The trust in a life
Always shouting at us

'Cause we're sober and sane
And we're doing alright
When we're facing the pain
Shall we take up the fight

In a colourful world
Where nothing goes wrong
Will we do just what we're told
Are we singing our song

In a colourful world
Where nothing goes wrong
Will we do just what we're told
Are we singing our song

Another Day

(Roy Harper cover)

The kettle's on
The sun has gone
Another day
She offers me
Tibetan tea
On a flower tray
She's at the door
She wants to score
She dearly needs to say

I loved you a long time ago, you know
Where the winds own forget-me-nots blow
But I just couldn't let myself go
Not knowing what on earth there was to know

But I wish that I had 'cause I feel you so sad
But I never had one of your children

And across the room
Inside a tomb
A chance is waxed and wanes
The night is young
Why are we so hung up
In each other's chains
I must make her
I must take her
While the dove domains

And feel the juice run as she flies
Run my winds under her sighs
As the flames of eternity rise
To lick us with the first born lash of dawn

Oh really, my dear, I can't see what we fear
Sat here with ourselves in between us

And at the door
We can't say more
Than just another day
And without a sound
I turn around
And I walk away

Deer Eyed Lady

Deer eyed lady
Can you sleep at night
Is your vanity and sorrow of the bearable kind
Dear young baby
Will you come on through
Can you stand straight through all we'll do to you

Deer eyed lady
With wisdom and wits
Is it love, is it meant
Can you go on like this
Will you carry your grief with all your flare
Are we ready to see who's behind, who's there

Fearless sadie
Give it to me
Play me a tune from your place, from your sea
Take care of it all
Keep it up laying low
Make sure you will wear all your smiles when you go

Deep eyed lady
What's your dearest of schemes
Take a look at your glance
It's a drowning dream
Will you fly away, will you keep that grin
Don't ever leave me, stay within

Fearless sadie
Give it to me
Play me a tune from your place, from your sea
Take care of it all
Keep it up laying low
Make sure you will wear all your smiles when you go

Lost

I lost my mother
I lost her at sea
Despite of all the actions in rescuing
I lost my mother
I couldn't see
It was darker than ever
Performing in the darkness
Performing it for me
Performing it when no one else
Is around to see

What can I say
To make it go away
To make you feel more comfortable
To make you feel okay
What can I do
To make it go away
To make you feel more comfortable
To make you feel okay

I lost my brother
I lost him at sea
Despite of all my struggling to keep him
I lost my brother
I didn't see
The adhesive web of inheritance
Performing it for me
Performing it when no one else
Is around to see

What can I say
To make it go away
To make you feel more comfortable
To make you feel okay
What can I do
To make it go away
To make you feel more comfortable
To make you feel okay

Subdivisions

(Rush cover)

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In-between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone

Nowhere is the dreamer
Or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

Somewhere out of a memory
Of lighted streets on quiet nights

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Come On

Love life in a hidden tank
Trying to spot them before they sank
I can be anywhere right now
Doesn't matter where I'm at somehow

Like to swim in a sea of sand
On and off I'm at your command
Love and lust in a giant web
Hope and trust in the life we led

The absurdity of having to go on
Feel strong, dream on, coming from
Feel sad, being bad
To you

Once you come and go and never know, you've failed
When you're up for it, but didn't go, you're tailed
All the talking that we did today
And the consequence you threw my way

Lead life in elastic moves
Sit tight through the spastic grooves
Behind the eyes is a hidden scene
Take time to secure the screen

The absurdity of having to go on
Dream on, last long, going strong
Feel sad, being bad
To you
To you

No, not to you
No, not again
No, not to you
No, not again

Someday

They're coming to get me now
They're coming
Gonna enter a ship today
I'm flying
To other galaxies
I'm going
Take me away from here
I'm longing

I can't stand the things you say
I can't stand the things I do
I can't stand the way we keep
To exploit and dissemble
Just try to remember

Who of us were first
Who of us has the right
To exterminate
I can't wait to move on
To put on
To be gone
To be gone

Someday
I hope we will meet again
When, I don't know
Where, I'm not sure
Someday
I hope we will smile again
When, I don't know
How, I'm not sure

They have been calling on me for a
Long time now
I have been studying the manuals
To their machines
The process of emancipation
Takes form
There is nothing to prevent the forthcoming
Immigration

I can't stand the things you do
I can't stand the things I say
I can't stand the way to keep
Imprisoning to determine the conviction
To strongly resist my loud contradiction

Someday
I hope we will meet again
When, I don't know
Where, I'm not sure
Someday
I hope we will smile again
When, I don't know
How, I'm not sure

Someday
I hope we will meet again
When, I don't know
Where, I'm not sure
Someday
I hope we will smile again
When, I don't know
How, I'm not sure
