The Gorm

The Gorm

BandRockPop

A blend of rock and Pop with lyrics that stretches far beyond the usual "why don't you love me!" lyrics and a voice that goes from a whisper to a primal scream.

Biography

Started out as a drummer at the age of 12.
Joined a band called Gangway as keyboard player in the mid 80's, but when the drummer left I took over the drums. Occasionally I played Bass and guitar as well.

Lyrics

Full Circle

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

When my body's being recycled and I go to meet my maker
I shall come to understand if was a giver or a taker
Was I selfish or maybe generous and did I love or did I fear
Now was I weakend when I lost or mayby strengthend by every tear

For love, for reason, for truth and for you

Should I have turned left where I turned right and did I succeed in trying not to show
My paralysing angst of closeness and my fear of letting go
Now did I walk the path that I wanted and did I live or just survive
and if I hadn't felt abandoned would I still seek and strive

For love, for reason, for truth and for you

And if I was granted a second chance would I be able to change my ways
And could I learn to love myself and work hard even on my bad days

For love, for reason, for truth and for you

If I had any sense at all

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

Every tear has cleansed my sight
separating wrong from right
and I see how hurt turned to hate
I see it's never too late

But indifference marked the change
indifferent beings lose their gains
reached for the heart, but it wasn't there
pent-up feelings expressed the fear

Either you give or receive
love is useless when you thieve
Look at the chaos we make
every time we try to take

If I had any sense at all
I would be begging on my bended knees
If I had any sense at all
I would forgive
If I had any sense at all
I would try to find a way back to love
If I had any sense at all
I'd try some more.

Born with a flame, we try to regain
the lust for life makes up for the strain
Losing in life you start to reveal
the consciousness of what is for real

Words are but sound that we make
it's so easy to fake
Precious is the love that you share
realize it when it's there

If I had any sense at all
I would be begging on my bended knees
If I had any sense at all
I would forgive
If I had any sense at all
I would try to find a way back to love
If I had any sense at all
I'd try some more.

Blue Murder

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

Hey is there anybody out there just like me
Just like just like me

I've felt the seasons in my heart like anyone
And I know there'd be all dessert with too much sun
But sometimes the rains so hard that I drown in despair
with a solitude heart yeah yeah

Must I always feel this way

Hey is there anybody out there just like me
Just like just like me

And here we are just you and me and all this trash
I don't know how but everything's changed in a flash
Sometimes when truth does appear and walls come tumbeling down
I see myself awfully clear yeah yeah

Must I always feel this way

Hey is there anybody out there just like me
Just like just like me

I'm sorry, I'm sorry so late...

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

Uhh it hurts with every breath I take
Reminding me you loose whom you forsake
I should have seen your tears I should have considered this fate
I’m sorry I hurt you, I’m sorry I’m sorry so late.

I saw you got someone new
Oh baby I’m happy for you
But if I have just one wish
I hope he’s not like me

I hope he’ll listen when you speak
I hope he’ll hold you when you’re weak
I hope he’ll take, take your hand
Look into your eyes till you understand

You’re so beautiful

Uhh it hurts with every breath I take
Reminding me you loose whom you forsake
I should have seen your tears I should have considered this fate
I’m sorry I hurt you, I’m sorry I’m sorry so late.

I saw you saw us today
It hurt me though it should be passé
If I have just one wish
I hope your next is not like me

I hope you’ll find someone like you
Someone who loves and trusts like you do
I hope she’ll have, have the heart
To know you love her even when you’re apart

You’re so beautiful

Uhh it hurts with every breath I take
Reminding me you loose whom you forsake
I should have seen your tears I should have considered this fate
I’m sorry I hurt you, I’m sorry I’m sorry so late.

Everything is written on your face
Everything that you didn’t say
Everything you learn when someone’s gone…

Uhh it hurts with every breath I take
Reminding me you loose whom you forsake
I should have seen your tears I should have considered this fate
I’m sorry I hurt you, I’m sorry I’m sorry so late.

Runaway Train

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

I’m so tired, I’m so, so tired
I can’t stop this rain again
Not like me, not like me
I’m just like a boy again

Time, time, time, time and again
I've been here before
Not like me, not like me
I’m just like a boy gain

Here I am
And life is bitter sweet
Now my reason is gone
To carry on

Here we are on this runaway train
Going astray
I can’t forget and my heart'll remain
To ignore what you say

I’m on fire, I’m so on fire
I want to be sane again
Not likely, not likely
My heart is trembling again

Here I am
And ignorance is bliss
Since veracity’s gone
My only one

Here we are on this runaway train
Going astray
I can’t forget and my heart'll remain
To ignore what you say

Desert Heart

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

Your every word falls like rain
on my dessert heart
Every love has torn my heart
you take the pain away

Take my heart
take it everywhere you want
‘cause you can't hide
Your all I ever wanted

It feels like home when you touch
my worried restless soul
You take my back to when I loved
with out a single doubt

Take my heart
take it everywhere you want
‘cause you can't hide
Your all I ever wanted

Take my heart
take it everywhere you want
‘cause you can't hide
Your all I ever wanted

Hold me tight

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

The point of no return
Was past tonight
In your hands I cannot yearn
Resist or fight
And there's a voice deep within, that says yes
Everytime you touch my skin and make me feel blessed

Hold me tight,
my childish heart matures,
when you're near
For tonight has woken me,
I'm yours my dear

It's been a rocky road
For you and me
Carrying the load
Of a memory
But everything's changed somehow, you're here
Yes everything changed just now,
I no longer fear

Hold me tight, my childish heart matures when you're near
For tonight has woken me,
I'm yours my dear

Labyrinth of Reasons

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

All the things you did
all the things you did didn't cure
maybe you must learn
maybe you must learn to endure
all things that hurt you
all the things that can't be undone
the feelings that you have
the feelings when the moment is gone

A labyrinth of reasons is running
slowly through my worried head
every little thing you did and
every single word you said
The frailty of knowledge strikes me
I knew I had to be with you
The cruelty of life just spikes me
‘cause there's nothing I can do

Maybe there is just
maybe there is just one way out
and maybe it's the things
the things we never talk about
what if it would trigger
what if it would trigger response
and what if it would cure you
what if it would cure you at once

Everything you see and hear is yours to keep..

A labyrinth of reasons is ..........

Somethings Magic

Written By: Gorm Ravn-Jonsen

Uuuhhhh you spin my life around

Can't keep out your words as they pierce my skin
though I'm trying, yes I'm trying
but everything you say is aming deep within
and I'm crying, yes I'm crying
I don't quite comprehend what it is you impart
though I'm trying, yes I'm trying
but you read me like a book and you touch my heart
and I'm crying, yes I'm crying

There's something magic ‘bout this - I'm floating on air
My mind's in a mess - but I really don't care
There's something magic ‘bout this - I can't concentrate
My mind's in a mess - the world will have to wait

I don't know what you did but I'm no longer the same
can't deny it, can't deny it
‘cause being here with you has given birth to a flame
can't defy it, can't defy it

Uuuhhhh you spin my life around

There's something magic ‘bout this - I'm floating on air
My mind's in a mess - but I really don't care
There's something magic ‘bout this - I can't concentrate
My mind's in a mess - the world will have to wait
