Just You (but what about love)

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

You can see but you don’t see anything

One can hear but it is hard to listen

You can feel but what is it that you are feeling

One can believe and people do in anything

 

It is just you will call it survival

It is just you but what about love

 

Society is moving it is not moving me

We try and try and don’t understand

Deeper cuts that hurt, we hide the sores

Couple of lines that we don’t want to swallow

 

It is just you will call it survival

It is just you but what about love

 

One can love, not the most deserving

The other side of entitlement

Touch a centre of being rewarding

Something money can not buy

How Long must we Wait

How Long must we Wait Written 1989 Oslo for L+o+v+e = You and Me album (unreleased)

 

How much longer must we wait

Until we know it is time

Until the battle is won

Untill we know all is done

 

Bullets they fly in the night

and I feel like I am almost done

 

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

Won’t you please tell me

How long we must wait

 

For time I can not put my finger on

I can not change what is going on

I can not bring back the dead

Just like some one I know

 

I keep looking over my shoulder

Because the enemy always strikes from behind/but only love can defend me

 

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

How Long

How Long

How Long must we wait

Won’t you please tell me

How long we must wait

If Love was a Freight Train

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

If Love was a Freight Train from the second collection of recorded songs in Oslo, Norway 1991.

 

If Love was a Freight Train

I would lay myself across those tracks

If Love was a Freight Train

I would lay myself across those tracks

I would take you to be my friend

I would give you my money

But it an’t as easy as that

And you could never carry my load

Oh no my baby don’t cry for me

Oh no my child don’t you believe

 

And the cost is high ha high

doomed by watching hawks

Don’t I just tell you

That we are no more

Don’t you break right down

Until I can feel you

Oh no my baby don’t cry for me

Oh no my child don’t you believe

 

I know  I know  I know

You can hear me

If you want to

I know you can hide from me

And lock it deep inside

 

Oh no my baby don’t cry for me

Oh no my child don’t you believe
