TIMBER AND STONE

you push me out the door
Keep moving on
Keep moving on
You bail me out again
I’m coming clean
I’m coming clean

And we met hiding
Our dreams colliding
And we build our towers ever since
Forever to remain
Because

We are like timber and stone
We are like timber and stone
There’s a bond we built from loyalty
A friendship to sustain
Because
We are like timber and stone

Your ship is sinking deep
You’re drifting off
You’re drifting off
I dive into the dark
To find your love
To find your love

And we met hiding
Our dreams colliding
And we build our towers ever since
Forever to remain
Because

We are like timber and stone
We are like timber and stone
There’s a bond we built from loyalty
A friendship to sustain
We are like timber and stone

We are like timber and stone
We are like timber and stone

HEY HEY HEY

You hear the final call
But you don’t know where to go
You see the curtains close
And the spotlights turning off
Your knees are shattering
And failure is calling
Though you see yourself falling
You manage to stand your ground

Hey hey hey
You lost your way way way
You’re out of time time time
They’re gonna find find find
They’re gonna find you soon

You’re gazing at the stars
And wonder where you are
You wonder where you belong
And if all your turns were wrong
What if you disappear
Leaving everything behind
Only courage in the rear
You start driving blind

Hey hey hey
You lost your way way way
You’re out of time time time
They’re gonna find find find you
So you better hide hide hide
Get out of the light light light
Just take my hand hand hand
See the footprints in the sand sand sand
They lead us somewhere safe

Hey hey hey
You lost your way way way
You’re out of time time time
They’re gonna find find find you
So you better hide hide hide
Get out of the light light light
Just take my hand hand hand
See the footprints in the sand sand sand
They lead us somewhere safe safe safe
You only gotta be brave brave brave
We find a place for tonight night night
It will be alright right right
It will be alright

MARIANNE

I know I’ve not always been right
But when they say black it might as well be white
Well, for me it hasn’t changed a bit
You know I’ll be around
I’m turning loose
I’m turning loose

As I am walking down the road
I see faces losing faith and heads down low
But my heart is telling me to stop and think
And carry on
Carry on
Carry on

And my trust it lingers on in the lucky and the strong
In the weak and in the poor, in the ones who live ashore
Our foundation’s trembling hard can we end this mess unscarred
So I keep on keeping on

So take your time now Marianne
And there is nothing to pretend
We both know the world is not as sweet as fairy tales to tell
Come along
Oh come along

And I can’t fly, no I can’t breathe
It’s like mankind found a way to make me bleed secretly
So I look into your eyes and I see fire in disguise
Take me on
Oh take me on

And my trust it lingers on in the lucky and the strong
In the weak and in the poor, in the ones who live ashore
Our foundation’s trembling hard can we end this mess unscarred
So I keep on keeping on

Marianne
There’s a war we’re fighting
A war we’re fighting
Marianne
And I’m going down with you

Marianne
There’s a war we’re fighting
A war we’re fighting
Marianne
And I’m going down with you
We’re going down
We’re going down

COD STREET

We grew up on the smallest street
In the smallest town
Maybe the smallest town around
Surrounded by fields and forest
There are boats there
Safely at shore
Protected in our own universe
All alone
The world won’t make a sound

We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
Just next to shark street
Of all the fishes in the world
We used to live on cod street

In the summer time people came
Filled the town
The town where I grew up
You could gather all those people on a boat
And transport them away
Just like me just like i did
I wonder if I’ll ever see them again
But not like that
In our own universe

We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
Just next to shark street
Of all the fishes in the world
We used to live on cod street

Our childhood there are walls there
The walls you break
Will remain broken
‘Cause once your eyes are opened
They’re opened wide
And everything looks different
I’ll never find that place again
But in my dreams
There’s a boat lost at sea

We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
Just next to shark street
Of all the fishes in the world

We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
Just next to shark street

We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
We used to live on cod street
Just next to shark street
Of all the fishes in the world

LOVE OS A RIOT

Oh love is a riot
Love is a fighter
Darling can’t you see
There ain’t no reason to cry
I’ll be yours till I die
Just keep on holding on to me

Oh life is a book and
You are its story
You fill it page by page
And if you’re out of lines
For sure use some of mine
Just keep on holding on to me

Oh love is a riot
Love is a fighter
Darling can’t you see
There ain’t no reason to cry
I’ll be yours till I die
Just keep on holding on to me

Oh justice and trial
No more denial
Let this be our guide
In the darkest of nights
I will always treat you right
Just keep on holding on to me

WHEREVER WE GO

Here, here we are
Marching and on and on
To the fields where we once fought
In the shade of grace and god

Take, take my hand
And I’ll lead you to the land
Where our dreams grow like trees
No more misery, just belief

And this is to wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go

Come, come with me
And I’ll show you what it means
To be determined, to make a change
Break the habit, crack the stain

So here, here we stand
Like a never breaking band
They are the cause, we’re the effect
They’ve got arms, we got minds instead

And this is to wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go

See the plants
They sprout from the ground that once was dead and cold
And our wounds
Will be healed by the new sun rising up in the sky
See the plants
How they sprout from the ground that once was a graveyard
And our wounds will be healed

And this is to wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go, where we go
Wherever we go

HOME

There’s a house by the lake
It’s surrounded by trees
Would you believe when I say
The oak trees and pines
Embracing the house
Remind me of where I could be

In a house full of love
Full of wisdom and peace
A place I could never forget
Where past and where present
And future collide
If only there was a way back

Cause home smells like rain
And home tastes like weeds
Home is where I can be
Who I wanna be
Where my family’s gonna catch me
From every height
Come home son, come home
I’m gonna hold you tight

There’s a fire in the woods that is taking its toll
Would you believe when I say
The fire might take you, might take me away
But I am taking my memories with me

There’s a fire in the stove and there’s flickering light
A lingering smell in the air
There’s brothers and sisters and the parents and me
Sitting next to a tree on a stair

Cause home smells like rain
And home tastes like weeds
Home is where I can be
Who I wanna be
Where my family’s gonna catch me
From every height
Come home son, come home
I’m gonna hold you tight

And my mother used to say

Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
And if it’s not alright it is not yet the end

Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
And if it’s not alright it is not yet the end

Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
Everything’s, everything’s alright in the end
And if it’s not alright it is not yet the end

FOR MOM

With dusty shoes and worn out jeans
But valid tickets in my pocket
After all these miles today
I try to keep you warm and stay awake

I got some water from this man
Please drink and try not to spill some
I don’t know where we are
But for now we’re safe and warm

For mom
For mom
For mom
For mom
And we’ll build a new tomorrow one for me and one for you
For mom
For mom

Maybe for you it’s just a game
For fuck’s sake that’s OK you’re still so little
Get up we gather at the gate
Your brother will be waiting there to say

For mom
For mom
For mom
For mom
And we’ll build a new tomorrow one for me and one for you
For mom
For mom

For mom
For mom
For mom
For mom

And we build a new tomorrow one for me and one for you
And if we keep our heads down we might manage to muddle through
And one day you’ll be a man and you’ll be standing on your own feet
And I’ll be fighting age and disease

Yeah, you won’t remember nothing you’ll be chanting other songs
You’ll thrive and start a family on your own
And I’ll always love you son but one day I’ll be with your mom

With mom
With mom
With mom
With mom

LET ME GO

Let me go
Let me run
For the winter has come
Let me go
Just like you don’t know
My baby is waiting for so long
I’m cold and I’m shaking, can’t you see
You’ve put me down now set me free
Let me go
Oh let me go

We all are sinners
Not a single one of us is gonna be a saint
Tell me who are the winners
Thinking ‚bout the friends we lost along the way
Look at me I am a broken man and you might be broken too
All I wanna do is head back home
That’s why I’m telling you

Let me go
Let me run
For the winter has come
Let me go
Just like you don’t know
My baby is waiting for so long
I’m cold and I’m shaking, can’t you see
You’ve put me down now set me free
Let me go
Oh let me go

Nobody can take away the pain you felt these years
But believe me when I tell you I had to shed the same bitter tears
Aren’t you tired of distress and of fighting all along
If everyone lays there weapons down we could all be soon back home

Let me go
Let me run
For the winter has come
Let me go
Just like you don’t know
My baby is waiting for so long
I’m cold and I’m shaking, can’t you see
You’ve put me down now set me free
Let me go
Oh let me go

Let me go
Oh let me run
For the winter has come
Let me go
Just like you don’t know
My baby is waiting for so long
I’m cold and I’m shaking, can’t you see
You’ve put me down now set me free
Let me go
Oh let me go
Oh let me go
Oh let me go

FIGHTING THE MOON

I’m fighting the moon for you
Fighting the night
But the moon is fighting back
Stealing the light
I wish this day
This day would never end

Our eyes met in a crowded room
A cliché I guess
But it left me with this feeling
Inside
I think you like me
And I hope I like you too

Not sure I’m ready for that
I’m usually not
I think I’m scared of love
Of giving my heart away
I think you like me
And I hope I like you too

We won’t know it before we try
But I’m sick of being
I’m sick of being wrong
It’s holding me back
I think you like me
But I’m not sure that you should

And I
I will change my mind
Change it many times
Over and over again
Convince me what is right
Convince me that it’s wrong

I’m fighting the moon for you
Fighting the night
But the moon is fighting back
Stealing the light
I wish this day
This day would never end
Cause I think I like you
But I know that it’s too late
