Track Name: Bottles, boxes, bags
Bottles, boxes, bags,

Bottles, boxes, bags,
houses, clothes and books
they store and contain,
retain and carry.

A grave without a coffin
is just a hole in the ground.
A coffin without a body,
is nothing but a box.

What is my heart since you left
but a longing cage?
Track Name: Green Song
Green Song

How could a seed be cautious
when it feels the earth, so warm?
How could my heart resist
when first touched by the sun?

“When you show your power,
I tremble,” he said to me.
He made me feel like a flower
and I only bloomed for him.

Between night and morning I became old,
withered by a late spring frost.
There are no synonyms for love,
no way to fix love when it´s broke.

How could a seed be cautious
when it feels the earth, so warm?
How could my heart resist
when first touched by the sun?

He made me feel like a flower
and I bloomed only for him.
Between night and morning I became old,
withered by a late spring frost.
Track Name: Haunted House
Haunted House

Come, live with me in a haunted house,
to be sure it won’t drip won’t shake won’t fall,
the house has no roof no floor and no walls,

On the edge of a cliff on top of a tree
built to remember that nothing is meant to last,
over remains of ruins and debris

It’s invisible and soft, it’s light and wide
so we’ll never feel enclosed inside.
It has no windows and no doors
so we won’t know if we’re in or we’re out.

Live with me in a haunted house
with no room for the future, no room for the past,
orphans of time holding tightly
in the middle of the night.

Our love will live beyond our lives.
move in with me into a haunted house.
we’ll be naughty silky phantoms, silver
shadows dancing in the dark.

it’s invisible and soft it’s light and wide
so we’ll never feel enclosed inside.
It has no windows and no doors
so we won’t know if we’re in or we’re out.
Track Name: Shelly Manne Dr.
Rain falls on the windshield,
the wiper is on,
the radio plays Chet Baker songs.

I fall in love too easily,
like raindrops from a cloud,
like tears from the sky
on the windshield and I.

A cymbal touched by a metal brush,
sound of the wiper
when raindrops start to fall.

I fall in love too terribly hard,
for love to ever last, but
the wiper clears the windshield,
it´s rhythm clears my heart.

Rain falls on the windshield,
the radio plays Chet Baker songs,
the wiper never stops.
Track Name: The Waste Land
The Waste Land

There’s a man who kisses me when he’s drunk
and lets me feel his sadness the rest of the time.
How are you, are you in love?

I cried like a child reading “The Waste Land” –
the last gift you gave me, and it was a bit hard.
Oh boy, you never think twice.
Oh boy, what a way to say goodbye.

There’s a man I look for when I’m lost
like a warm melody to cradle me in the snow
How long will I remember?
How long won´t I forget?

Has a sudden frost disturbed your bed?
Are your arms full, is your hair wet?
Where are you, are you in love?
Where are you, have you found love?
