Lyrics

The Puzzle

Written By: Ane Brun

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of

Her remains were spread out like the pieces of a puzzle
it took her 365 days putting them together
the pieces were quite difficult to distinguish from eachother
they were tiny and the clear blue sky
went on forever

Clearly the corners were an easy start
that was when everyone was still
helping me out
when it was time to fill in the frames
they left – they thought I ought
to have gotten over you
by then

Her remains were spread out like the pieces of a puzzle
it took her 365 days putting them together
the pieces were quite difficult to distinguish from eachother
they were tiny and the clear blue sky
went on forever

I wouldn´t do that to you
I wouldn´t do that to you
I wouldn´t do that to you
I wouldn´t do that to you

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of

I walked into love
I walked into a minefield
I never heard of
I never heard of

The Treehouse Song

Written By: Ane Brun

When I woke
I took the backdoor to my mind
and then I spoke
I counted all of the good things you are

and that list of charms was
longer than my chain of broken hearts
and when the day was done
I figured I had already lost
from the start – from the start

I was gonna love you till the end of all daytime
and I was gonna keep all our secret signs and our lullabies
I was made to believe that our love would grow old
we were gonna live in a treehouse and make babies
and we were gonna bury our ex-lovers and their ghosts
baby we were made of gold

so many times
we drank fine wine in one swallow
and in those late nights
we painted our walls bright yellow

My Lover Will Go

Written By: Ane Brun

What am I gonna do?
I am crying a bottle of wine over you
This is something I don´t usually do
But I am crying a bottle of wine over you

For me it is red or nothing
Hey-ho my lover will go
And this will ruin everything
Hey-ho my lover will go
I´m just too romantic
Hey-ho my lover will go
Without any sense of strategies
Hey-ho my lover will go

Twelve days and many long days have passed
Since I let go of my heart way too fast
Too many long summer nights
I´ve been checking for errors on the telephone lines

For me it is red or nothing
Hey-ho my lover will go
And this will ruin everything
Hey-ho my lover will go
I´m just too romantic
Hey-ho my lover will go
Without any sense of strategies
Hey-ho my lover will go

What am I gonna do
I am pouring my heart all over you
I guess I recognize this too
I think I´m falling in love with you
