Lyrics

Stay love

The morning is awake and I feel so blue
I look at the mist and I think of you
The grass is free why can´t I be
A seagull is rising over me

Stay love don´t go away love
I´m still a woman
Hold me love hold me till I´m strong again
till I´m a songbird

A new dawn is coming and waits for me
I look at the leaves and I dream of you
The waves are free why can’t I be
A wind is howling inside of me

Water became wild

Oh have you seen my soul
It´s been drifting since I was a child
It´s been drifting since I was a child

Love is gone now with the wind and sun
He left me a rose and water became wild
He left me a rose and water became wild

Oh don´t leave me all alone on this trail
I remember the night I saw you go wild
I remember the night I saw you go wild

Oh have you been sleeping to the sound of mother weeping
She sang you a song with a blue tone
She sang you a song with a blue tone

Love, I heard your voice trembling on the mountain
You told me to go and be silence no more
You told me to go and be silence no more

Oh shall we go now and meet the others
You found me when I was in silence
You found me when I was in silence

Did you ever

I am not sad just wondering
about you and other things
I am not mad just missing
the breezes and the morning
that always leaves me
breathless

Did you ever see the light
you always talked about
Did you ever find that gate
Did you walk out of the night

I am a fruit who whispers pick me
I can be sweet among other things
I am a song who sings play me
when everyone is gone in D

Did you ever see the light
you always dreamed about
Did you ever find that friend
to walk with in the night

Because of you
I am blue
Because of you
I am blue

Morning is leaving

Time are you awake or sleeping
I heard your birds singing
will you come to me
when I am old and autumn
is weeping

Time, please forgive me
I was wrong full of storm and pain
but I always loved you
even when I was sad
and leaves were creeping

Do you know that story you told
on the street of a cold Stockholm
it still moves in me like a wind
on a stormy sea
now rain is all I have left
and I feel kind of lost
every time morning is leaving

Tree of dreams

I am wasting away
under my tree of dreams
I´ve been humming a song
to the winter and a broken heart

If I could fly away
I would fly to you
If I could die just one time
I would die in your arms

I am laughing away the sorrow and the pain
I´ve been sleeping in a leaf
waiting for the sun to shine

If I could turn back time
I would never let you go
I would stop running around
and I would stand still with you

I´ve been taking my time
´cause time is nothing but a dream
I´ve been talking to a breeze
asking it to bring you back to me

Under the sun

I am always trembling
trembling under the sun
I am always crying
crying to the wrong song
I am a worm crawling
crawling to be free

Oh the sun is burning
burning on my cheek

I am always regretting things
things I have done under the sun
I am always feeling too much
feeling like a geek
I am a storm and you are the ship
I hope you find me in this fog

Oh I am riding
riding on the wind

I am always touching things
things I have seen under the sun
I am always falling
falling into a stream
I am a squid swirling
swirling to be free

Oh I am rising
rising from the mud
Oh the sun is burning
burning on my cheek
Hard to love
Hard to care

Twisted wind

Oh I look to the sky
is it falling down
falling down
falling down

Oh what a desert of snow
where has the bird flown
where has the bird flown
bird flown

Oh I was born in dust
in a twisted wind
a twisted wind
twisted wind

Oh will I ever come home again
will I ever see that bird again
Will I ever

The dream

Stay little bird if you are broken
the wind is cruel and I need someone I can talk to
Blow in the whistle if you are drifting
the waves are high and a fisherman
is sailing on and on

Are you lost
Let’s find the dream

Float like the autumn breezes
find a high tree and climb up
Sing to the shimmering water
A fish might hear and take you to a stream

Singing me through

I´ve been asleep
missing the breeze
up in a tree
I´ve been a falling leaf
No more shall I sleep or be awake

I´ve been so sad
losing my friends
stuck in a haze
while dreaming of hot springs
No more shall I wander on the lake in the wintertime

I´ve been a fool
wasting my time
under the snow
turning tears to icicles
No longer shall I weep for Robin´s broken wing

I´ve been going mad
with the sorrowflue for you
singing me through
this world of blue
No longer shall I weep in the meadow at night

Time to collect

You can wait for me if you want
by the gate where we first meet
catch me if you can
I´m a dreamer and you can be my dream
I just need some time to collect
I just need some wind to blow in my sail

You can hold me close
so I don´t disappear
I don´t know how to love
so please show me
I just need to run through the fields
I just need to dance in the rain when no one is there

You can kiss me if you want
I´ll close my eyes and fall
I´ve been waiting for a long time
for light to break through
I just need some solitude one last time
I just need some shadow before we go
