The bottom floor band

The bottom floor band

BandWorldFolk

Folky, worldly and acoustic trio (with guests). Only original compositions. A huge and startlingly diverse range of influences. Lyrically orientated and very melodious. Intense and passionate, in both the words they sing and the music they play.

Biography

The bottom floor band met while all working for a well known European circus. Jasmine was a knife thrower, Ray was in charge of the horses and the 2 Siberian Tigers, Oscar and Theobold, and Elaine was a clown and musician in the circus band. All 3 were quite disgruntled with working in the circus and they would play music late at night after shows to entertain the other performers and staff. Eventually they all escaped the tyrannous Circus owner and started The Bottom Floor band..

Lyrics

Gypsy Grace

Written By: Jasmine Lyhagen

In spring I dream of summer
In winter I long for the leaves
Despite that I'm happy to realize
that you will walk with me

We put on our hats and our golden shoes
We make our own cafe
We're playing only in markets
to reach that Gypsy Grace

Yes happiness goes to them all
that happiness gives away
and to them who's greedy what happens to them?
I rather do not say

We put on our hats and our golden shoes
We make our own cafe
We're playing only in markets
to reach that Gypsy Grace

(swedish)Ja karleken gar till dem alla
Som karlek ger ivag
Och till dem som ar snala, vad hander med dem?
Ja, det aterstar att se

Vi tar pa oss hattar och fina skor
Vi gar pa tomgangscafe'
Ja, vi spelar pa marknader bara
och leker livets lek

We put on our hats and our golden shoes
We make our own cafe
We're playing only in markets
to reach that Gypsy Grace

Love me and leave me

Written By: Jasmine Lyhagen

Moved into a space that never was
my own
You moved into my head
and made it to your home
So sorry you cant see the things you put me through
The things you blame on me
yeah they all belong to you

So love me and leave me
I'm not your autumn rain
The things I was to you I will never be again

You keep on coming back
with words of evil spite
I'm giving you my heart and try to set set things right
But baby you must see that your suffering prolongs
I'm becoming a recluse but I'm rescued by my songs

So love me and leave me
I'm not your autumn rain
The things I was to you I will never be again
Yeah turned around and wake up
Grab a pillow for a fight
Go through all dark emotions that makes your darkest night

Let those mountain hills surround you
Get yor greatest comfort from the sun
'cause darling, I am simply a woman
who doesn't know how to comfort a soul but my own

I'm sorry I don't possess the strenght to sort you out
Inside you are a mess and I'm in too much doubt
So now I'm letting go cause I can't take this anymore
I'm saying my goodbyes by putting locks upon my door

So love me and leave me
I'm not your autumn rain
The things I was to you I will never be again
Yeah turned around and wake up
Grab a pillow for a fight
Go through all dark emotions that makes your darkest night

Let those mountain hills surround you
Get yor greatest comfort from the sun
'cause darling, I am simply a woman
who doesn't know
how to comfort a soul but my own
