Lyrics

Astrodome

Written By: Martin Hagfors

After all the people leave the Astrodome
Some go home, some get stoned
He always watches as they leave the Astrodome
He’s got no home except the Astrodome

Chorus:

He’s got memories that he turns on almost every night
In the neonlight from the buildingsite
Reruns don’t loose color when they are left to be,
just a supplement to reality

No-one’s fit to judge the life that others lead,
like tumbling weeds we’ve all gone to seed
And who’s to say he couldn’t change the path he chose
As though a laund-ro-mat can’t clean tattered clothes

Chorus

Of all the people frequenting the Astrodome
In the crowd, some are still alone
I couldn’t help but notice him by the gate
A quiet man he never stayed out late

I Drive

Written By: Martin Hagfors

I Drive Martin Hagfors (Manus 2003)

And I Drive
Rolling up the windows at night
Squinting at the oncoming light
As I drive
And I drive
Stopping on the road by a lake
Stopping so I still feel awake
Then go on
Let this night go on forever
I’m lighter than a feather
I feel too good just to be alive
People can be so condescending
Life is never, never-ending
Driving is a solution to survive

I won’t live
A life that can be categorized
There’s nothing like a clue in my eyes
So I drive
To arrive
You have to be heading somewhere
But frankly I don’t even care
So I drive

Let this night go on forever
I’m lighter than a feather
I feel too good just to be alive
People can be so condescending
Life is never, never-ending
Driving is a solution to survive
We started out giddy one night in a bar
Then we got caught in this moving car
Now that you left I don’t know where you are
You’re harder to find than a shooting star

As I drive I see the great American smile
On a billboard every other odd mile
But now they’re gone
As I drive
Finally the road is all mine
Transcending to a space void of time
So I drive

Let this night go on forever
I’m lighter than a feather
I feel too good just to be alive
People can be so condescending
Life isn’t never-ending
Driving is a solution to survive

Bring You Back With a Song

Written By: Martin Hagfors


Bring You Back With A Song


My mind is so exhausted by the words we never said
The conversation we forgot took house in my head
And when I think of all the things that turned out wrong
I wish that I could bring you back with a song
I wish that I could bring you back with a song

For two people so involved with games we play with words
We should both have seen the signs twisted in our nerves
You smelt a disaster our love would not last long, still;
I wish that I could bring you back with a song
If only there was that power in this song

Look back into my eyes
You’ll see dreams flying by
And when you focus again
You will know that our love did not end

I could say you’re beautiful, I could say your smart
But you are so many things I don’t know where to start
And one thing we can’t deny is; we both get along ,so
Why can’t I just bring you back with a song
Now that I’ve found out where I belong

We’ve watched our relationships all go down the drain
Our children and our ex’s have been shattered by our pain
I let them get to know you but they hurt you all along
I wish that I could bring you back with a song
Now that I’ve found out where I belong
