Lyckan i en ask – Music and Lyrics

 

Lyckan i en ask

Jag förutspår en tid, då mitt VISA-kort inte bestämmer vad jag känner.

Den måste finnas till, en tid lyckan vilar på ett djup.

Jag tänker att jag vill förändra mitt eget beteende främst av alla.

Lyckan, lyckan i en ask, som kom på posten,

när du satt och grubbla över livet,

livet som är tomt, men fylls så lätt när du ser allt som glittrar.

Mina uppgifter samlas in, reklamen ska vara riktad och felfri.

Så sakta jag lindas in, i tomma drömmar som fyller upp mitt liv.

Lyckan, lyckan i en ask, som kom på posten,

när du satt och grubbla över livet,

livet som är tomt, men fylls så lätt när du ser allt som glittrar.

Lyckan, lyckan i en ask, som kom på posten,

när du satt och grubbla över livet,

livet som är tomt, men fylls så lätt när du ser allt som glittrar, allt som glittrar.

Regina Spektor – You’ve got time

I want to share with you music that I love, and Regina Spektor is such a wonderful artist!

Here’s the song “You’ve got time”, that apperas as the theme song of the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black”.

Imagine that my music has been compared to her, *blush*. The lyrics:

The animals, the animals
Trapped, trapped, trapped ’till the cage is full
The cage is full
Stay awake
In the dark, count mistakes
The light was off but now it’s on
Searching the ground for a bitter song
The sun is out, the day is new
And everyone is waiting, waiting on you
And you’ve got time
And you’ve got time

Think of all the roads
Think of all their crossings
Taking steps is easy
Standing still is hard
Remember all their faces
Remember all their voices
Everything is different
The second time around

The animals …

// En mycket bra låt av Regina Spektor, “You’ve got time”.

Believe- Music and lyrics

Loves me, loves me not
maybe I can never tell, maybe I close my eyes,
and then I start to believe

I guess I start believing,
I guess I start believing,
I guess I start believing,
I guess I start believing,
I guess I start believing!
          

Let me know when you’re ready to fly
Honey you go first and I will be right behind…

(selection of lyrics)

In memory-Lyrics and music

The tree was green breathing for sunshine,
The leaves fell and the winter came,
You bore your fruits and you were loved.

The past is done, the shore is open,
You are free, you are strong,
Take their hand, they’re waiting for you.

Fly over the clouds, you should follow the sun,
Making way through the blue sky

Don’t look back
Don’t look back

The past is done, the book is written,
Page by page of memories
Then suddenly it came to an end.

Forever remember, the joy you gave,
The way you laughed, the way you sang.
Page by page, we wrote it together.

Fly over the clouds, you should follow the sun,
Making way through the blue sky

Don’t look back
Don’t look back

// In memory of my dear uncle.

Discover the flower in you- Lyrics and music

Discover the flower in you
Lately I’ve been thinking about,
whatever is happening to us,
somehow we fear for the truth,
it’s like we get what we choose.

Lately I’ve been worrying about,
unthoughtfully I make decisions.
This is not a silly game,
nothing will ever be the same.

Discover the flower in you,
discover the flower in you,
discover the flower in you,
take the chance,
take the chance!

Lately my thoughts are occupied,
nothing can take this off my mind.
take this burden set me free,
I found a flower in me.

Discover the flower in you,
discover the flower in you,
discover the flower in you,
take the chance,
take the chance!

Discover the flower in you,
discover the flower in you,
discover the flower in you,
take the chance,
take the chance!

I’m for real- Lyrics and music

I’m for real

This is who I am, this is me, this is my story.
I don’t need you, I don’t love you, but I hate you.
And this is why.

You think you are, but you are not.
You think you can but you cannot.
Please don’t tell me, please do stop.
You think you can help me, but who are you,Anyway?

So I tell you, I’m for real, I’m for real, I’m for real,
Just like you. 

Do I need to tell you, I have a dream?
I’m tired of being told what to do,
How much I’m worth for everyone and you,
And if I like it as much as you, Of course I do.

So I tell you, I’m for real,I’m for real, I’m for real,
Just like you. 

I don’t need you, I don’t love you, but I hate you. 

The body is a shield- Lyrics and music

The body is a shield, protecting me from all the pain I once could feel.
The body has its own memory that can’t be erased so easily.
The body has its own way to heal, keeping a secret hidden from all.

Just the slightest touch, like pure silk, like tender breeze,
can erase the hidden tension, demolish all the barriers and release…

I have realised how harmfull it can be to deny.
The things that effect you can’t be held so deep inside.
I have realised how easy it can be to let down your guard.

Just the slightest touch, like pure silk, like tender breeze,
can erase the hidden tension, demolish all the barriers and release…

The body is a shield, protecting me from all the pain I once could feel.
