Lyrics

A girl With the broken wing

Written By: Pål-Stian Misje


(…….)
Hedvig
[ (stands a moment immovable, in terror and perplexity, biting her lips to keep back the tears; then she clenches her hands convulsively, and says softly):]

The wild duck.
[
[She steals over and takes the pistol from the shelf, opens the garret door a little way, creeps in, and draws the door to after her.[HIALMAR and GINA can be heard disputing in the sitting-room.]
(Henrik Ibsen 1884)
(………………………………………………)

A girl with the broken wing
(The last song of Hedvig Ekdal)

Verse 1

Wild ducks never leave where we came from
Unlike Ikaros who was Punished
by the burning of the sun

Be my eyes
because my vision is fading faster than before
I wanna tell you something more,
I wanna tell you something more,

Don’t know if its Fear of flying
or just a lust for dying
Or if its about
What`s being lost between all the laughing and the lying

Take my hand
Cause I`m not sure you will make it on your own
As someone elses flesh and bone
One more time, and I`ll be gone

Ref:
Please bring about the flute papa
And play another la la la
And talk about your beautiful dreams
About impossible machines
That’s all I ever needed you to

Lets go and wake up grand pa pa
And help him find the gun aha
And let`s go rabbit hunt papa
Lets have some fun aha
That’s all I ever wanted us to do

Verse 2

Is this really as far as you may go
And make a stop somewhere Between
here and now and status quo

Stand up tall
Cause I`m not sure there will be another day
One more matchstick for no pay
It didn`t have to end this way

Ref

So bring about the flute papa
And play another la la la la
And talk about your beautiful dreams
About impossible machines
That’s all I ever needed you to

And please be nice to ma papa
Don`t you know she really loves you
Lets go and wake up grand papa
lets have som fun aha
That’s all I ever wanted us to do

Be my Winnie Cooper

Written By: Pål-Stian Misje

Be my Winnie Cooper

All that I didn`t do,
Is believed in fact to be caused by You.
A peace time draft
I got embedded in a crusade
To conquer your heart

You sent me up to heaven,
with the smelling of your green Jane Helen
I believed it to be true,
That it had all been caused by you

Empty at home
Alone without even a cosmic dial tone
I sent a message to your heart
to let you know right from the start

ref:

That I`ll Be an eternal Holden Caulfield
even a Karamazov brother for you
And wait for you no matter where we wanna go
If you`ll just be my Winnie Cooper one more time

Make a Murakami morning for
and serve you Lunch at the top of a Camelot tower
Wish you well no matter where you wanna go
if you just be my Winnie Cooper one more time

Vers 2

Like an Apostle of nothingality
entrenched by armies of apocalypticality
I`ll break a bridgehead to your heart
and tear the ramparts all apart

Even though I`m no Messiah
Or believed to become some kind of a Jeremiah
I will be entering the building
all dressed up like a like a proper pilgrim

Spring autumn, winter summer
we`ll be marching to the beat of our own little drummer
if you believe it to be true
that it`s all caused by me and you

Ref

I`ll silence the guns of Navarone
I`ll even run across the Maginot line for you
And believe in your dreams no matter far they go
If you`ll just be my Winnie Cooper one more time

I`ll save the children of My Lai from the soldiers
throw a stone at the police in the Sharpeville riot
And come back to you if you want me to
If you`ll just be my Winnie Cooper one more time

(I don`t wanna hear no Hollywood lies
Or lullabies full of alibis
I don`t wanna hear no Hollywood lies
Or lullabies full of alibis
I don`t wanna hear no Hollywood lies
Or lullabies full of alibis
I’ll be your winnie if you’ll be my friend
I’ll be your Winnie take my hand)

ref:
I`ll be an eternal Holden Culfield for you
ill even do my Marlon Brando for you
And wait for you no matter where we wanna go
just be my Winnie Cooper one more time

We`ll be like Romeo and Juliet without the dying
or like Jean Paul and Simone without all the lying
But I`ll let you go when you want me to
if you just be my Winnie Cooper
one more time

Jack London's Journey

Jack London’s Journey

Verse 1

Cold light
Transformed to logic white
See it all so clear once again
And then you know you never
will be going back again

Cold light
Nothing`s wrong and nothings right
Make a promise as hard as you can
and know that you will never
have to believe again

ref:

While on the way to see
The maker of morphology
Passing in the light
A-A-A with a logic so white

One and two and three,
Say what will be will be
Projected one more night
In your canyon,
on a canvas
of a logic so white

Trying to escape the fact,
that to be truly free is to be well attached
a voyage without fright
on a ship with sails
made of a logic so white

Verse 2

All right
So you got in the night
Doing the same no matter if it rains
while you keep Wishing you could grow old again

Cold light
Transformed to logic white
See it all so clear once again
and then you know you never will be going back again

Ref:

Everything so slow
With atoms in magnificent glow
Passing in the light
A-A-A with a logic so white

Performing herecy
Absorbed by clicheality
a return to happy plight?
propelled by winds
not eased by the night

at the end of days
To burn out in a brilliant blaze
Passing in the night
with white white light and a logic so white
