Kari Kleiv

BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

I want you to hear and decide for yourself. I'm sure your a wise one. Its love, its life, its noises of the London streets and heartbeats of the Norwegian forrest. Fresh sea air throughout. Its not always easy, but thank God we have music people! It is my second saviour!

Biography

I like to go to the forrest to compose. I like sitting in the green with blueberry plants all around. Or at home. When people are at parties, I sit home and write, and when people are at home, I like to party. Im shy, but not when I play music. It all comes out. Places I have played my self-composed songs (hope they inspired somebody!)LIVE:_________________________ "Akkustisk S¿ndag" PŒ Hj¿rnet, Kristiansand, 12.

Lyrics

Brother, brother

Written By: kari Kleiv

Brother brother 
(k.kleiv)
 
Girls are tricky 
girls are picky and even with superglue they're not sticky
if you wanna keep one you gotta hold on tight
cause if you don't hold on tight 
they'll be pondering in the night
is this guy of mine really Mr. Right

When you told her
won't you come back to me
did she follow
did she run
did she flee
brother brother
won't you listen to me yeah carefully yeah
let her go now
many fish in the sea
but when you find a dolphin
catch her by keepin her free
oh, brother brother, 
wont you listen to me yeah carefully yeah o-o

Well, I know you're a popular guy
loose my friends over you all the time
when they hang with me cause they're in love with you
but boy I'm talking 'bout the girl who's gonna come and turn your world
if you think she's it I'll hint on what to do

When you told her
won't you come back to me
did she follow
did she run
did she flee
brother brother
won't you listen to me yeah carefully yeah
let her go now
many fish in the sea
but when you find a dolphin
catch her by keepin her free
oh, brother brother, 
wont you listen to me yeah carefully yeah o-o

solo


When you told her
won't you come back to me
did she follow
did she run
did she flee
brother brother
won't you listen to me yeah carefully yeah
CLAP
let her go now
many fish in the sea
but when you find a dolphin
catch her by keepin her free
PLAY
oh, brother brother, 
wont you listen to me yeah carefully yeah o-o
