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.

The last gig #kulturernaskarneval

So how was my last gig at Kulturernas karneval? Don’t worry, it is definitely not my last gig.

It was wonderful. 

I performed together with my husband, which was very successful and we also had some lovely audience in the Botanical garden. We actually had quite nice weather (so far no Spring/Summer at all).

And don’t forget you can always listen to Sadness Theory on Spotify.

The Cure – Lullaby

This is an amazing song from a really good band, The Cure. So Goth, so poetic, so epic. The video is also cool and kind of creepy:


on candystripe legs spiderman comes
softly through the shadow of the evening sun
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
looking for the victim shivering in bed
searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
room! and there is nothing i can do when i
realise with freight that the spiderman is having
me for dinner tonight

quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
arms are all around me and his tongue in my
eyes “be still be calm be quiet now my precious
boy don’t struggle like that or i will only love
you more for it’s much too late to get away or
turn on the light the spiderman is having you
for dinner tonight”



and i feel like i’m being eaten by a thousand
million shivering furry holes and i know that in
the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
and the spiderman is always hungry…


Lana Del Rey – Summertime sadness

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Just a wonderful song of a cool artist. Love her deep dark voice 🙂 and of course the sadness.

No, I don’t present you the latest artists. My main focus is being on the other side, I’m focusing on producing music. But of course I need the input and some artists are very inspiring.

Some lyrics:

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you’re the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

// Lana Del Rey- Summertime sadness.

Djup röst och melankoli, kan det bli bättre? Nej, trodde inte det 🙂

Inget nytt men mitt fokus är att producera inte konsumera. Och inspiration behövs ju där också.


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”.

Just to be clear!

As some of you know one of my goals for a more sustainable living is to minimize the amount of products I use. For my daily routines for makeup, facial care, hair care.

But now and then I do buy and try something new and will make a review on the blog. I have some upcoming reviews on organic products and want to clarify that they are my own opinion.

I have no profit from the blog what do ever and I haven’t gotten any products for free. And if I would of course I would let you know.

The only reason I have the blog and the website is my passion for music and environment and therefore sustainable living.
Som ni vet är mitt mantra att ju färre produkter desto bättre! Nu har jag några uppkommande recensioner på gång här på bloggen och vill klargöra att de bygger på mina egna tankar.

Jag har ingen vinst på min blogg och jag köper alltid själv mina produkter. Skulle jag få skickat något skulle det såklart framgå.

Anledningen att jag driver bloggen och hemsidan är min passion för musik, miljön och det hållbara livet!

Oktoberstämman i #Uppsala


Ett roligt tillfälle att lyssna på folkmusik och att även prova på folkmusik med gitarr på Oktoberstämman.

Jag och min man tog med oss gitarrerna och deltog i en liten workshop.


Senare var vi på Väsen konsert som var ett jubileum med andra musiker som deltog.



// A folk music event in Uppsala in October that also have a chance to attend a workshop in folk music with guitars. We also attended a world known folk music band Väsen.

Play that funky music!


I like this concept I saw at a hotel bar in Uppsala. Over the pickup there’s this sign saying that you are free to play music.

Lovely initiative not only as a nice deco detail but also for the guests.
