No more sorrow

«No More Sorrow»

Are you lost
In your lies
Do you tell yourself I don’t realize

Your crusade’s a disguise
Replace freedom with fear
You trade money for lives

I’m aware of what you’ve done

No, No more sorrow
I’ve paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

I see pain
I see need
I see liars and thieves
Abuse power with greed

I had hope
I believed
But I’m beginning to think that I’ve been deceived

You will pay for what you’ve done

Thieves and hypocrites
Thieves and hypocrites
Thieves and hypocrites

Your time has come to be replaced
Your time has come to be erased

Break in

Hvordan enkelte får deg til å føle kan av og til være vanskelig å beskrive… Denne teksten kan være treffende. Les den! Lytt til den! Nyt den!

«Break In»

Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home
When it’s all said and done I’ll follow the echoes
I hear you night after night calling out my name
And I find myself running to meet you
I didn’t want to escape
From the bricks that I laid down

You are the only one
The only one that sees me
Trusts me and believes me
You are the only one
The only one that knows me
And in the dark you show me
Yeah it’s perfectly reckless
Damn, you leave me defenseless
So break in
Break in

You let me fall apart without letting go
Then you pick up the pieces and you make me whole
I didn’t want to escape
From the bricks that I laid down

You are the only one
The only one that sees me
Trusts me and believes me
You are the only one
The only one that knows me
And in the dark you show me
Yeah it’s perfectly reckless
Damn you leave me defenseless
So break in

And take everything I have
Until there is nothing left
Until it’s just your voice in my head
And when the lights come on
You see me as I am
You’re still inside me

You are the only one
The only one that sees me
Trusts me and believes me
You are the only one
The only one that knows me
And in the dark you show me
Yeah it’s perfectly reckless
Damn you leave me defenseless
So break in
Break in

Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home

Skyfri himmel

Musikk er noe som står høyt hos meg. Det har dere sikkert skjønt. Har derfor lyst til å dele en sang med dere sånn på tampen av lørdagskvelden.

Dette er ikke av typen musikk jeg vanligvis hører på. Likevel bør den deles. Den treffer meg i hjertet. Hver gang! Den trenger ingen ytterligere kommentarer. Den taler for seg selv.

Har du tatt deg tiden til å tenke over hva den egentlig handler om?

«Skyfri himmel»

Det einaste ho ønska seg va ein solskinnsdag
Skyfri himmel
En problemfri time i go’e venners lag
Nykter, men svimmel
Svimmel av glede, så glad for litt fred
Det e’kje for møkje å ønska seg det
Men du vett, det ska noke te
Det e for ti’a ikkje sånn livet e

Det va ikkje sånn det sko vær
Det va ikkje sånn det sko bli
Hu drømte som lita om ei møkje bere ti’
Hu drømte om det go’a hu alldri fekk
Alt sko bli bra bare ho kom seg vekk
Det blei aldri slik
Ein blir såra for om det e svik

Det einaste ho ønska seg va ein solskinnsdag
Skyfri himmel
En problemfri time i go’e venners lag
Nykter, men svimmel
Svimmel av glede, så glad for litt fred
Det e’kje for møkje å ønska seg det
Men du vett, det ska noke te
Det e for ti’a ikkje sånn livet e

Dagen gjør vondt, og lyset e ingen venn
Det e tryggast i mørke med skoddene igjen
Det e ikkje alt i alt det e lika kjekt å se
Det kan vær greit å sleppa lys på det ein drive’ me
Det va ikkje sånn det sko vær
Men mørke har et grådig begjær

Det e tungt å ta te’bake ein barndom som e tapt
For kvart mislykka forsøk blir ein bare meir forlatt

Og det einaste ho ønska seg va ein solskinnsdag
Skyfri himmel
En problemfri time i go’e venners lag
Nykter, men svimmel
Svimmel av glede, så glad for litt fred
Det e’kje for møkje å ønska seg det
Men du vett, det ska noke te
Det e for ti’a ikkje sånn livet e

Peace is free

Morten Besshø pekte på noe viktig i dag i et innlegg. Innlegget ble skrevet med tanke på FN-dagen som var i går. Han kom med en oppfordring til oss alle. En oppfordring om å glemme trivialiteter som et lite øyeblikk og rette oppmerksomheten mot de som ikke har det like godt som oss selv.

Jeg skrev en kommentar til dette innlegget… Jeg skrev blant annet:

«Selv om jeg aldri har blogget om “dagens outfit” eller lignende ubrukelige emner, så tar jeg til meg det du skriver. Tar oppfordringen om å sjenke noen tanker, og ord, til noen som ikke har det så bra som det vi har det. Skal la tanken modne, slik at innlegget, når det kommer, er ord som er gjennomtenkte og følte.»

Jeg skal holde dette løftet. Det kommer etterhvert et innlegg knyttet til dette. Men, ikke akkurat nå.

Akkurat nå så ønsker jeg bare å dele denne sangen med dere. Dette er et fantastisk band som jeg har vært så heldig å oppleve live. En av sangene deres passer godt i denne sammenhengen.

Og igjen, som alltid når jeg legger ut musikk…. Hør på sangen, lytt til testen. Den er vakker, og meningsfull. «Peace is free» synger de. Og jeg kunne ikke vært mer enig! Tenk litt over det….

«Peace Is Free»

Everybody feels blue sometimes
You gotta keep your head up, and keep on tryin’
And if you feel the urge to raise your hand
You can start a revolution or start a band
You better sing your song and sing it loud
But you better do it here and you better do it now
’cause this is one short life that we live
You gotta listen people, this is what my song says

Don’t you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There’s a sun up ahead brother, waitin’ on me
Can’t you see

I know times can get a little tough
You gotta lean on my brother, you can’t give up
Forget about your problems, forget about your pain
Raise up our glasses and forget about our hate

Don’t you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There’s a sun up ahead brother, waitin’ on me
Can’t you see

I know, I know it sounds so bad
But if you want we’ll take a stand

Don’t you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There’s a sun up ahead brother, waitin’ on me
Can’t you see

Can’t the whole world love one another
Throw down your weapons, fix all the hunger
Don’t you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free

When peace is free

Leave out all the rest – til ettertanke

Vi lever i en tid hvor folk flest blir mer og mer egosentriske. Jakten på det perfekte liv er stadig i fokus. Individet skal realisere seg selv. Det rakkes ned på de som er mindre perfekte enn en selv.

Jeg er ikke perfekt. Ikke vil jeg være det heller. Jeg er bare meg! På godt og vondt. Jeg gjør mine feil, slik som alle andre.

Denne sangen får meg alltid til å tenke. Og jeg synes det er grunn til at den skal vekke ettertanke…

 

«Leave Out All The Rest»

I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
‘Cause no one else caredAfter my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I’m done here?

So if you’re asking me
I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Don’t be afraid
I’ve taken my beating
I’ve shared what I’ve made
I’m strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I’ve never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you’re asking me
I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
Don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come
And save me from myself
I can’t be who you are

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
Don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come
And save me from myself
I can’t be who you are
I can’t be who you are

 

Weight of the world

Ønsker bare å dele denne på slutten av dagen. Er noe ved denne som føles treffende på et vis jeg ikke kan forklare. Les den. Lytt til den. Nyt den.

Who’s to say there’s a way this has to end.
We’re writing our own rules, 
Who’s to blame give me names and what they said.
Oh how could they hurt you
And when you crumble away under pressure
You need to borrow my strength and I’ll let ya.
It’s getting heavier, hold, hold it steadier I seeLife is throwing you curves
You can make it
Take it in, try again
You don’t deserve this
I just wanna save you
You can take it
On the chin, try again
You’ll make it
You don’t have to carry the weight of the world
You don’t have to carry the weight of the worldSeparate what you hate from what you love
Once and for all and
If you tumble my way I can catch ya
If you follow my lead and I’ll bet ya
It’s feeling heavier, hold, hold it steadier I see

Life is throwing you curves
You can make it
Take it in, try again
You don’t deserve this
I just wanna save you
You can take it
On the chin, try again
You’ll make it
You don’t have to carry the weight of the world
You don’t have to carry the weight of the world

Life is throwing you curves
You can make it
Take it in, try again
You don’t deserve this
I just wanna save you
You can take it
On the chin, try again
You’ll make it
You don’t have to carry the weight of the world
Don’t have to carry the weight of the world
Carry the weight of the world
You don’t have to carry the weight of the world

Who’s to say there’s a way this has to end?

I’m a fool with dreams…

Denne treffer meg. På et vis. Les den. Lytt til den.

You’re a diamond, how I found you I still don’t know.
But now I got you and I’ll never let you go.
If your hearts a pocket looking for some change.
My heart makes lots of sense

Just stay quiet, Breathe deep, Breathe out, Breathe slow.
Don’t say a word.
Let our eyes speak and they will tell you,

I’m a fool with dreams, and not a lot of things.
I swear that I will be all you need.
Don’t give up on me.
Give me one more day.
Don’t give this all away.
We’ll be fine, you’ll see.
Just don’t give up on me.

I’d be lying if I said that I’m not terrified.
How the hell can I do as they say, and take this all in stride?
Does this come with an instruction book?
If so I need to have a look.

Just stay quiet, Breathe deep, Breathe out, Breathe slow.
Don’t say a word.
Let our eyes speak and they will tell you,

I’m a fool with dreams, and not a lot of things.
I swear that I will be all you need.
Don’t give up on me.
Give me one more day.
Don’t give this all away.
We’ll be fine, you’ll see.
Just don’t give up on me.
Don’t give up on me.
Don’t give up on me.

I know you’re scared inside, but baby so am I.
It gets so hard to hide.
I’m not going no where.
I’m not going no where.

I’m a fool with dreams, and not a lot of things.
I swear that I will be all you need.
Don’t give up on me.
Give me one more day.
Don’t give this all away.
We’ll be fine, you’ll see.
You’ll see, You’ll see,

I’m a fool with dreams, and not a lot of things.
