TAKE ON ME  
(Words: Morten Harket / Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
(Music: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy / Magne Furuholmen)
 
We're talking away
I don't know what
I'm to say I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, OK?
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day or two
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But I'm me
Stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)  
I'll be gone
In a day or two
Oh the things that you say
Is it life or
Just to play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)  
I'll be gone
In a day or two
(Take on me - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
I'll be gone (Take on me - Take on me)
In a day or two (Take me on - Take on me)
(Take on me - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
(Take on me...)
 

 
THE BLUE SKY  
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
Blue Sky... Blue Sky...
Blue Sky... Blue Sky...
Blue Sky... Blue Sky...
Blue Sky... 
I find it hard to breathe
As life just eats away
At the faces that surround me
They look tired today
The lady at my table
Doesn't want me here
I just want to talk to her
But would she laugh at my accent
And make fun of me
Oh, it doesn't seem like this
Blue sky's here for me
There are no girls in here
As far as I can see
Only pin-up posters
Looking down at me
Watching paper cups of coffee
Growing cold before my eyes
All the things I see
That make me realize
I'm in this big world without you
Nothing to my name
Oh, I never knew that
Blue sky meant such pain
Blue Sky... Blue Sky...
Blue Sky... Blue Sky...
Blue Sky... Blue Sky...
Blue Sky...
I'm dying to be different
In the coffee shop
I've lived on borrowed strength
Now my supplies are cut
Though I'm older than my looks
And older than my years
I'm too young to take on
My deepest fears
Oh, I used to be confused
But now I just don't know
Since you left I've been watching
Blue skies come and go
Blue Sky...
Oh, Since you left I've been watching
Blue skies come and go
Blue Sky...
 
 
THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
To me...
I reached inside myself
And found nothing there
To ease the pressure of
My ever worrying mind
Wo-ohhhhh
All my powers waste away
I fear the crazed and lonely looks
The mirror's sending me
These days
Wo-ohhhhh
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Please don't ask me to defend
The shameful lowlands
Of the way I'm drifting
Gloomily through time
Wo-ohhhhh
(Touch me)
I reached inside myself today
(Give all your love)
Thinking there's got to be some way
To keep my troubles distant
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me (To me)
To me...

 


 
TRAIN OF THOUGHT (7" Remix) 
(Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
 
He likes to have the morning paper's
Crossword solved
Words go up words come down
Forwards backwards twisted round
He grabs a pile of letters from a small suitcase
Disappears into an office
It's another working day
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
He likes a bit of reading on the subway home
A distant radio's whistling tunes that nobody knows
At home a house awaits him, He unlocks the door
Thinking once there was a sea here
But there never was a door
And his thoughts are full of strangers
And his eyes too numb to see
And nothing that he knows of
And nowhere where he's been
Was never quite like this
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
And at heart
He's full of strangers
Dodging on his train of thought
Train of thought
Dodging on his train of thought
 

 
HUNTING HIGH AND LOW (7" Remix)  
(Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
 
Here I am
And within the reach of my hands
She's sound asleep and she's sweeter now
Than the wildest dream could have seen her
And I watch her slipping away
Though I know I'll be hunting high and low
High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
Hunting high and low
High
There's no end to lengths I'll go
To find her again
Upon this my dreams are depending
Through the dark
I sense the pounding of her heart
Next to mine
She's the sweetest love I could find
So I guess I'll be hunting high and low
High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
High and low
High
Do you know what it means to love you
I'm hunting high and low
And now she's telling me she's got to go away
I'll always be hunting high and low
Only for you (And now she's telling me)
Watch me tearing myself to pieces
Hunting high and low
High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
Oh, for you I'll be hunting high and low
 

 
I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU  
(Pål Waaktaar)  
 
It wasn't the rain that washed away...
Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
Putting the gun down on the bedside table
I must have realised
It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
And I could have sworn it wasn't me
Yet I did it all so coldly
Almost slowly
Plain for all to see
Oh c'mon please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
How can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you
Hey...
I can still hear our screams competing
You're hissing your S's like a snake
Now in the mirror stands
Half a man
I thought no one could break
It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
Nervously drumming on: Run away
But I want the guilt to get me
Thoughts to wreck me
Preying on my mind
So, please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you
Please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
Please now
Talk to me
Oh, tell me what to do (Helpful)
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you  
You
I've been losing you
You
I've been losing you
(Talk to me)
(Run away... Run away...)
Run away !
 

 
SCOUNDREL DAYS 
(Words: Pål Waaktaar)
(Music: Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
 
Was that somebody screaming...
It wasn't me for sure
I lift my head up from uneasy pillows
Put my feet on the floor
I cut my wrist on a bad thought
And head for the door
Outside on the pavement
The dark makes no noise
I can feel the sweat on my lips
Leaking into my mouth
I'm heading out for the steep hills
They're leaving me no choice
And see... as our lives are in the making
We believe through the lies and the hating
That love goes free
For want of an option
I run the wind round
I dream pictures of houses burning
Never knowing nothing else to do
With death comes the morning
Unannounced and new
Was it too much to ask for
To pull a little weight...
They forgive anything but greatness
These are scoundrel days
And I'm close to calling out their names
As pride hits my face
Yeah
And see... as our lives are in the making
We believe through their lies and the hating
That love goes free through scoundrel days
I reach the edge of town
I've got blood in my hair
Their hands touch my body
From everywhere
But I know that I've made it
As I run into the air
And see... as our lives are in the making
We believe through the lies and the hating
That love goes free
Through scoundrel days

    THE SWING OF THINGS
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    They say the world's an eventful place
    You give me news
    I don't want to know
    You say that I should care
    That I should speak my mind
    Oh, but how can I speak of the world
    Rushing by
    With a lump in my throat
    And tears in my eyes
    Oh, have we come to the point of no turning back
    Or is it still time to get into
    The swing of things
    Let us walk through this windless city
    I'll go on till the winter gets me
    Oh, "Sleep..." you wrote "sleep, my dear"
    In a letter somewhere
    Oh, but how can I sleep with your voice in my head
    And an ocean between us
    And room in my bed
    Oh, have I come to the point where I'm losing the grip
    Or is it still time to get into
    The swing of things
    Oh, when she glows in the dark
    And I'm weak by the sight
    Of this breathtaking beauty
    In which I can hide
    Oh, there is a world full out there
    Of people I fear
    But given time I'll get into
    The swing of things
    Yes, when she glows in the dark and I'm struck by the sight
    I know that I'll need this for the rest of my life
    I know that I'll need this for the rest of my life
    All that I need
    You know what I need
    What have I done
    What lies I have told
    I've played games with the ones that rescued my soul
    (All that I need)
    Have I come to the point where I'm losing the grip
    Or is it still time to get into
    The swing of things
     

     
    CRY WOLF  
    (Words: Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
    (Music: Magne Furuholmen)
     
    "You know
    Night I left the city,
    I dreamt of a wolf..."
    Oooh
    He came from where the winds are cold
    And truth is seen through keyholes
    Strange longings that'll never sleep
    Oh, now he's come where no hearts beat
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    You can start, but you cannot stop
    You give in, but you can't give up
    You can tell all your desperate jokes
    To a world that puts
    Your love on hold
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry  
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now  
    "I dreamt of a wolf"
    "You know"
    "The wolf"
    The sunken-in eyes
    And the pain in his cries
    A shape in the dark...
    Cry!
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Now!
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry!
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry!
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry wolf Oooooooooh
    Cry wolf Oooooooooh
     

     
    MANHATTAN SKYLINE (Single Edit) 
    (Words: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
    (Music: Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)  
     
    We sit and watch umbrellas fly
    I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
    I hear myself say,
    "My boat's leaving now"
    So we shake hands and cry
    Now I must wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    (Wave goodbye)
    You know
    I don't want to cry again
    Don't want to cry again
    I don't want to say goodbye
    Don't ever want to cry again
    I don't want to run away
    I don't want to race this pain
    I'll never see your face again
    Oh but how
    How can you say
    That I didn't try...
    No...
    I leave to their goodbyes
    I've come to depend on the look in their eyes
    My blood's sweet for pain
    The wind and the rain bring back words of a song
    And they say wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    (Wave goodbye)
    But you know
    I don't want to fall again
    I don't want to know this pain
    I don't want another friend
    I don't want to try again
    Don't ever want to see you hurt
    Don't let me see you hurt
    I don't want to cry again
    I'll never see your face again
    How can you say
    That I didn't try
    You know I did
    (I don't want to cry again)
    So I read to myself
    A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons
    On the front page
    A black and white picture of
    Manhattan Skyline
     

     
    THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS (7" Version) 
    (John Barry / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    Hey driver, where're we going
    I swear my nerves are showing
    Set my hopes up way too high
    The living's in the way we die
    Comes the morning and the headlights fade in rain
    Hundred thousand people... I'm the one they frame
    I've been waiting long for one of us to say
    Save the darkness and let it never fade away
    In the living daylights
    Ahhh
    The living daylights (The living daylights)
    All right, hold on tighter now
    It's down, down to the wire
    Set your hopes up way too high
    The living's in the way we die
    Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
    Hundred thousand changes... everything's the same
    I've been waiting long for one of us to say
    Save the darkness and let it never fade away
    In the living daylights
    Ahhh
    The living daylights (The living daylights)
    Ahhh
    The living daylights (The living daylights)
    Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
    Hundred thousand people...I'm the one they blame
    In the living daylights
    Ahhh
    The living daylights (The living daylights)
    Ahhh
    The living daylights (The living daylights)
    (The living daylights)
    Set your hopes up way too high
    (The living daylights)
    The living's in the way we die
    (The living daylights)
    Set your hopes up way too high
    (The living daylights)
    The living's in the way we die
    (The living daylights)
    Set your hopes up way too high
    (The living daylights)
    The living's in the way we die
     

     
    STAY ON THESE ROADS 
    (Morten Harket / Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    The cold has a voice
    It talks to me
    Stillborn, by choice
    And it airs no need
    To hold
    Old man feels the cold...
    Oh baby don't
    'cause I've been told
    Stay on these roads
    We shall meet, I know
    Stay on... my love
    We shall meet, I know
    I know
    Where joy should reign
    These skies restrain
    ‘Shadow your love...'
    The voice trails off again
    The voice trails off again  
    Old man feels the cold
    Oh baby don't
    'cause I've been told
    Stay on these roads
    We shall meet, I know
    Stay on... my love
    You feel so weak, be strong
    Stay on, stay on
    We shall meet, I know
    I know, my love, I know
    Feel the cold
    Winter's gone and I'm at home
    Stay on these roads
    We shall meet, I know
    Stay on... my love
    We will meet, I know
    So stay on...
    I know
    Stay my love... Stay on...
    We will meet, I know
    I know... I know...
     

     
    TOUCHY! (Single Mix Edit) 
    (Morten Harket / Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    Hey!
    C'mon, c'mon...
    Donna found us in her slow and dreamy way
    I can't hear a word the waiter says
    She's looking older now...
    The colour of her hair
    She walks into the room too pleased to find me there
    Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
    Me I'm touchy
    And you know what to do
    Me I'm touchy
    Touchy, touchy you
    Me I'm touchy and you know what to do
    Both of us together in a room by ourselves
    I sneeze to look around, but there's no escape
    What can I do, what can I say
    She's waiting for this moment to explain itself
    Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
    Me I'm touchy
    And you know what to do
    Me I'm touchy
    Touchy, touchy you
    Touching love is the best I can do
    Hey, this time you've gone too far
    You know how touchy we are
    Hey, this time you've gone too far
    C'mon, c'mon, don't you know I'm touchy?
    You know how touchy we are
    Donna found me in her slow and dreamy way
    Now she reads me what the papers say
    The way she laughs at what I do
    I'm waiting for this moment to explain itself through
    Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
    Me I'm touchy
    And you know what to do
    Me I'm touchy
    Touchy, touchy you
    Touching love is the best I can do
    Hey, this time you've gone too far
    You know how touchy we are
    Hey, this time you've gone too far
    C'mon, c'mon, don't you know I'm touchy?
    You know how touchy we are
    Sha-la-la
    Oh Yeah
    Oh yeah... yeah...
    Hey, this time you've gone too far
    Don't you know I'm touchy?
    You know how touchy we are
    Hey, this time you've gone too far
    C'mon, c'mon, don't you know I'm touchy?
    You know how touchy we are
    Yeah yeah... Yeah Yeah...
    Yeah yeah... Yeah Yeah...
    Yeah yeah... Yeah Yeah...
    Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
    Me I'm touchy
    Know what to do
    Me I'm touchy
    Touchy, touchy you
    Me I'm touchy
    Best I can do
    C'mon, c'mon
    Touchy... You
    Touchy
    Best I can do, yeah
    Touchy...
    C'mon, c'mon
    You
     

     

    THERE'S NEVER A FOREVER THING  

    (Pål Waaktaar)

     

    Dearest...

    Close your eyes now

    Don't you cry

    It's all right

    Lie back

    Leave the lights on

    It's all right, dear

    I'll be here through the night

    With you till the first signs of light

    Say the word and I'll come tonight

    It's all right now

    Don't you cry now

    Hush...

    Wipe your tears away

    There's never a forever thing

    All through the night

    I'll try so hard to be there somehow

    With you till the first signs of light

    Say the word and I'll come

    Tonight

    Darling, don't you cry

     

     
    YOU ARE THE ONE (7" Remix) 
    (Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
     
    You are the one who has done me in
    Guess you knew from the start
    I call again, but there's no one in
    Don't know where, with whom you've been
    But I do
    Love you
    Anyway you want me to
    Ah... You are the one... now the state I'm in!
    Catching you was so hard
    I fought for you, did you let me win!?
    You don't even care, you don't care
    Where I've been
    But I do
    Love you
    Anyway you want me to
    Woh-yeah!
    You are the one
    I’ve done all I can do
    All the letters... I've sent through
    Put my life in the Palms of your hands
    Maybe now you can see
    That it's got to be me
    But if you leave me
    I'll understand, yeah
    If you leave me, I'll understand
    Oh, you are the one who has done me in
    Guess you knew from the start
    I call your friends, but there's no one in
    Catching you is so hard
    You are the one!
    You are the one!
    You are the one! (You!)
    You are the one! (Are)
    You are the one! (The)
    (One)
     

     
    THE BLOOD THAT MOVES THE BODY (TWO-TIME GUN REMIX) 
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    It's the way we feel
    Tonight
    As if it's all unreal
    All right
    My love, won't you come back to
    Our love, you know I'll react to
    The blood that moves my body
    Now covers the ground
    The blood that moves the body
    The blood that moves the body
    There's nowhere to go
    Tonight
    Lend some warmth to our cold
    And lonely lives
    Red stains on 'Eyes Of A Blue Dog'
    My pains fade as the interiors fog
    The blood that moves my body
    Now colours the ground
    The blood that moves the body
    The blood that moves the body
    Not long ago
    It hurt us so
    A tremble through our lives
    The love and care...
    The way we were
    Now, lost its way at nights
    It's the way we feel
    Tonight
    Yeah
    My body... my body... my body...
    The blood that moves the body 
    The blood that moves the body 
    Not long ago 
    It hurt us so 
    A tremble through our lives 
    The love and care... 
    The way we were 
    Now, lost its way at nights 
    It's the way we feel 
    Tonight
    Lend some warmth to our cold 
    And lonely lives 
    My love, won't you come back to 
    Our love, you know I'll react to 
    The blood that moved our bodies 
    Now covers the ground... 
    Now, now covers the ground 
    Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
    Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
    Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
    (The blood that moved the body)
    (The blood that moved the body)
    It's all on the ground

    CRYING IN THE RAIN
    (Howard Greenfield / Carole King)
     
    I'll never let you see
    The way my broken heart is hurting me
    I've got my pride and I know how to hide
    All the sorrow and pain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    If I wait for stormy skies
    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
    You'll never know that I still love you
    Only  heartaches remain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    Raindrops falling from heaven
    Could never take away my misery
    But since we're not together
    I've prayed for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    Ohhhh
    since we're not together
    I've prayed for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
     

    EARLY MORNING  
    (Pål Waaktaar / Magne Furuholmen)
     
    Early morning
    Eight o'clock precise
    I see the lonely August sun arise
    Say you know
    You will
    Move me like you do
    Out on the fields...
    I'm waiting the whole night through
    Early morning, early morning, yeah
    Ran the whole way
    Down to the tracks
    Through the doorway
    Then a last look back
    Say you know
    You will
    Save me like you do
    Out on the fields...
    I've waited the whole night through
    Early morning, early morning, yeah
    Out on the fields...
    I climbed all the stairways
    To find the rooftop clear
    Got the shotgun lying with me here
    Say you know
    You will
    Move me like you do
    Out on the fields...
    You know how it feels, yeah
    Early morning, early morning
    Out on the fields...
    Early morning

    SLENDER FRAME  
    (Pål Waaktaar / Magne Furuholmen)
     
    Your coat is hanging loosely
    On your slender frame
    There's many roads to leave by
    But few come back again
    I don't believe it
    I believe it
    Take a look around and see
    What's stopping you is stopping me
    One moonless night we'll make it right
    And vanish in the dark of night
    Pack up your things and go
    Run down the road, don't take it slow
    Pack up your things today and run away
    Yeah, run away
    You say it's useless crying
    That never got you far
    You claim there's none as lonely
    Lonely as you are
    I don't believe it
    I believe it
    Take a look around and see
    What's breaking you is breaking me
    One moonless night we'll make it right
    And vanish in the dark of night
    Pack up your things and go
    Run down the road, they'll never know
    Pack up your things today, yeah run away
    Yeah, run away
    Yeahhhh
    One moonless night
    We'll vanish in the dark of night
    Pack up your things and go
    Run down the road, don't take it slow
    Pack up your things today, yeah run away
    Run... run... run...
    Pack up your things and go
    Run down that road, they'll never know
    Pack up your things today, yeah run away
    Yeah, run away
    Run... run... run away....
    Run away...

    I CALL YOUR NAME 
    (Pål Waaktaar/ Magne Furuholmen)
     
    We got married on a cold mid-winter's morning
    We said our lines
    Then kissed
    And it was over
    Those pronouncements had such weight
    I guess they made us hesitate
    Hesitate
    When she moved her hips
    And swayed in my direction
    I thought we could make it yet
    And beat the isolation
    But in that gentle dark
    Man, we tore ourselves apart
    Through fire and rain
    Through wilderness and pain
    Through the losses, through the gains
    On love's roller coaster train
    I call your name
    I call your name
    Through fire and rain
    Through wilderness and pain
    Through the losses, through the gains
    On love's roller coaster train
    I call your name
    We used to laugh
    Is the fire dying, babe
    It hurts to ask
    Let me hold you for awhile
    Through fire and rain
    On love's roller coaster train
    I call your name
    I call your name
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Owww
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh

    DARK IS THE NIGHT FOR ALL

    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     
    It's time we said goodbye
    Time now to decide
    Oh don't you feel so small
    Dark is the night for all
    It's time we moved out West
    Yes, this time will be the best
    And when the evenings fall
    Dark is the night for all
    It's time...yeah, to break free
    It's time to pull away
    For you and for me
    Oh, yeah
    To break free
    It's time... yeah, to break free
    We need to celebrate the mystery

    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    You're back again
    You roam the streets
    And crack again
    You're back again
    You're travel-worn
    Standing here in the town
    Where you were born
    It's not your home
    The mirror sees you
    So alone
    And cold as stone - Yeah
    You're not your own
    You feel a chill
    Go through your bones
    You're not your own
    There's something wrong
    You call you doctor on the phone
    He's not at home
    So you leave a message
    After the tone –
    "I'm cold as stone"
    Emerald green neon lights above
    Yeah
    Sapphire reds fall on you below
    Cold as stone
    Yeah

    In the night
    You're back alright
    You're travel-worn
    You're standing here

    SHAPES THAT GO TOGETHER  
    (Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar)

     

    When you were wrapped in tangles
    I was free
    And when you were undecided
    I believed
    It's alright, tonight
    On a deep blue mountain high
    We're shapes that go together
    You and I
    When you were filled with longing
    I belonged
    And when you were weak from trying
    I was strong
    But it's alright, tonight
    On a deep blue mountain high
    We're shapes that go together
    You and I
    Shapes that go together
    You and I
    Alright
    Childhood winters
    Come to me
    Whisper softly
    So tenderly
    Hey...
    I know, I walked twenty five miles to hold you
    Just to find you'd moved away
    When you were wrapped in tangles
    I was free
    And when you were almost blinded
    I could see
    But it's alright, tonight
    On a deep blue mountain high
    We're shapes that go together
    You and I
    Shapes that go together
    You and I
    You and I (Shapes that go together)
    You and I (Shapes that go together)
    (Shapes that go together)
    We go together (Shapes that go together)
    You and I (Shapes that go together)
    (The shapes that go together)
    When you were wrapped in tangles (Shapes that go together)
    I was free (Shapes that go together)
    Free (Shapes that go together)
     

     
    SUMMER MOVED ON
    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    Summer moved on
    And the way it goes
    You can't tag along
    Honey moved out
    And the way it went
    Leaves no doubt
    Moments will pass
    In the morning light
    I found out
    Seasons can't last
    And there's one thing
    Left to ask
    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    With nobody else around
    Friendships move on
    Until the day
    You can't get along
    Handshakes unfold
    And the way it goes
    No one knows
    Moments will pass
    In the morning light
    I found out
    Seasons can't last
    So there's just one thing
    Left to ask
    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    Stay, don't just walk away
    With nobody else around
    Reasons can't last
    And there's just one thing
    Left to ask
    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    Stay, don't just walk away
    With nobody else around
    Summer moved on

    I can't see me here in outer space
    It's so hard to leave a trace

    Can you hear me when I speak out loud
    Hear my voice above the crowd
    And I try and I try and I try
    But it never comes out right

    THE SUN NEVER SHONE THAT DAY (Radio Edit)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    The sun never shone that day

    From an early dawn the sky was grey

    I never should've walked away

    I know that now, but I'm here to say:

    Everybody walks away

    Everybody's led astray

    Breaking every plan to stay

    It happens all the time

    The sun never shone that day

    From an early dawn the sky was grey

    I never should've walked I know

    I see that now, but it's hard to show

    Everybody's got to go

    Everybody tells you so

    Everybody wants to know

    Why it happens all the time

    I can't see the point of turning everything upside down

    I can't see the point of greeting everything with a frown

    I can't see the point of painting everything black or white

    I can't see the point of leaving everyone full of doubt (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day) (oh doubt)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    The sun never shone that day

    From an early dawn the sky was grey

    I never should've walked away

    I know that now, but I'm here to say

    Everybody holds their own

    Everybody lives alone

    Everybody hogs the phone

    It happens all the time

    I can see the point of turning everything upside down

    I can see the point of greeting everything with a frown

    I can see the point of painting everything black or white

    And I can see the point of leaving everyone full of doubt

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    (The sun never shone that day)

    Everyone full of doubt

    VELVET  

    (Lauren Savoy / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    Her skin is like velvet

    Her face cut from stone

    Her eyes when she's smiling

    Will never reach home

    But hear how she sings

    Her touch would be tender

    Her lips would be warm

    But when we're together

    I'm always alone

    But hear how she sings

    But hear how she sings

    But hear how she sings

    Her skin is like velvet

    So I went to her home

    Her place like a palace

    With things you can't own

    Her skin is like velvet

    But hear how she sings

    But hear how she sings...

    Oooohhh...

     


     

    FOREVER NOT YOURS  

    (Music: Magne Furuholmen / Morten Harket)

    (Words: Morten Harket / Ole Sverre Olsen)

     

    Hold me tight

    This is a lonely night

    And I’ve hurt you baby

    Because you are my light

    You make me strong

    Just like you make me weak

    When your hands reach out for me

    Even in your sleep

    I’ll soon be gone now

    Forever not yours

    It won’t be long now

    Forever not yours

    Memories

    They keep coming through

    The good ones hurt more

    Than the bad ones do

    The days were high

    And the nights were deep

    And I miss you baby

    I miss you baby

    I’ll soon be gone now

    Forever not yours

    It won’t be long now

    Forever not yours

    I’ll soon be gone now

    It won’t be long now

    Forever not

    Forever not yours

    I’ll soon be gone now

    Forever not yours

    It won’t be long now

    Forever not yours

    Forever not yours

    I’ll soon be gone now (Soon I'll be gone)

    Forever not yours

    It won’t be long now

    Forever not yours

    Forever not yours

    I’ll soon be gone now (Soon I'll be gone)

    Forever not yours

    Forever not yours

    It won’t be long now

     


     
    LIFELINES  
    (Magne Furuholmen)
     
    One time to know that it’s real
    One time to know how it feels
    That’s all
    One call – your voice on the phone
    One place – a moment alone
    That’s all
    What do you see?
    What do you know?
    One sign?
    What do I do?
    Just follow your lifelines through
    What if it hurts?
    What then?
    What do we do?
    What do you say?
    Don’t throw your lifelines away
    Don’t throw your lifelines away
    One time – just once in my life
    Yeah
    One time – to know it can happen twice
    One shot of a clear blue sky
    One look – I see no reasons why we can’t
    One chance to go back
    To the point where everything starts
    One chance to keep it together
    When things fall apart
    One sign to make us believe it’s true
    What do you see?
    Where do we go?
    One sign?
    How do we grow?
    By letting your lifelines show
    What if we do?
    What after now?
    What do you say?
    How do I know?
    Don’t let your lifeline go
    Don’t let your lifeline go
    Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh
    Don't let your lifeline go

     


     

    DID ANYONE APPROACH YOU  

    ( Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    You never look up

    You never look back

    You never say anything based on fact

    You’ve got issues going way back

    You never say ‘hi’

    You never say much

    You never make an effort to stay in touch

    I got this feeling something happened here

    Something happened here

    Did anybody feel you?

    Did anybody deal you?

    Did anybody make you do some things now?

    Did anyone approach you?

    Did anybody coach you?

    Did anybody tell you what to say now?

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless at all

    You never looked up

    You never look back

    You never did anything in between

    Are things black and white with you

    You never believe

    You never belong

    You never made milestones to call your own

    I got this feeling something happened here

    Something happened here

    Did anybody hide you?

    Did anybody fight you?

    Did anyone decide to do some harm now?

    Did anybody read you?

    Did anybody bleed you?

    Did anybody feed you lots of junk now?

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless at all

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless at all

    Something happened here

    Something happened here

    Celice

    It's in the way you hurt me

    Celice

    I know that I'm alive

    Open up inside

    Make me want you

    Make me want to

    Wrap yourself around me

    Hold me tighter

    Hold me tight as only you can

    Celice

    It's in the way you hurt me

    Celice

    You sharpen all my senses

    I know you're on my side

    Celice

    It's in the way you teach me

    Celice

    To chase the thoughts away

    You opened up my eyes

    Made me want you

    Made me want to

    You know it feels so nice

    Hold me tight now

    Hold me tight as can be

    Celice

    It's in the way you hurt me

    Celice

    It's in the way you hurt me

    Celice (Hold me tight)

    (Me...)

    I know that I'm alive

    (Hold me... Hold me... tight....)

    (Me...)

    Celice

    You sharpen all my senses

    I know you're on my side

     


     

    ANALOGUE (ALL I WANT IS)  

    (Music: Waaktaar-Savoy, Max Martin & Magne Furuholmen)

    (Lyrics: Waaktaar-Savoy & Martin Sandberg)

     

    Come back, my darling one

    I'm calling on you

    The road ahead is long

    And I must warn you

    I wonder

    Where did she go?

    If I failed you

    I tell you right now

    All I want you to know

    I love you

    All I need

    Is the time to show you

    Come back, my fallen son

    Don't let them fool you

    Cos when the day is done

    They'll never move you

    Lay down your senseless pride

    Got more than you

    Put out your mournful tones

    I tell you right now

    All I want you to know

    I love you

    All I need is the time

    To show you how I feel

    Feel...

    Lay down your sense of pride

    Trampled once too often

    I tell you right now

    All I want you to know

    I love you

    All I need is the time

    To show you

    Oh you

    You know, I love you

    All I need is the time

    To show you how I feel

    Oooooooo

     


     

    COSY PRISONS (Radio Mix) 

    (Music / Lyrics: Magne Furuholmen)

     

    Take a moment if you dare

    Catch yourself a breath of air

    There's another life out there

    And you should try it

    Dead-ends hide on every street

    Look before you place your feet

    Cracks and fissures keep the beat

    And you're inside it

    Every thought you never dared to think

    Every mood you always knew would sink

    Every line you spoke out loud in a jest

    All the time you took to be your best is soon forgotten

    The sun must never touch your skin

    It could expose the dark within -

    You're paranoid about the paranoia

    And panic hits without a sign

    You worry ‘bout it all the time

    Every perfect moment is a hidden warning

    Cuz everything makes your pretty head spin

    And nagging thoughts are starting to sink in

    With everything this way it's better to forget

    Than end up in a place with something to regret

    Your transatlantic shopping-sprees

    Your health-forever guarantees

    Organic-bio-life's a breeze in cosy prisons

    But hiding out in the salad bar

    Isn't gonna get you far

    And bottled wine is vinegar tomorrow

    And everything around here makes your pretty head spin

    It’s piling up high - you're back where you begin

    Moments you have tried so hard to forget

    Are promising to be the best ones yet

    Yeah, every time you shut your eyes it appears

    Every time you trace your steps back here

    None of your convictions have the same old ring

    But no doubt you will find a place for everything

    In cosy prisons

    So if you're careful

    You won't get hurt

    But if you’re careful all the time

    Then what's it worth?

     


     

    FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN 

    (Music: Magne F. / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

    (Lyrics: Magne F. / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy / Martin Terefe)

     

    Keep your clever lines

    Hold your easy rhymes

    Silence everything

    Silence always wins

    It’s a perfect alibi

    There’s no need to analyze

    It will be all right through the longest night

    Just silence everything

    But we could live by the foot of a mountain

    We could clear us a yard in the back

    Build a home by the foot of the mountain

    We could stay there and never come back

    Learn from my mistake

    Leave what others take

    Speak when spoken to

    And do what others do

    Silence always wins

    So silence everything

    It will be all right in the morning light

    Just silence everything

    But we could live by the foot of a mountain

    We could clear us a yard in the back

    Build a home by the foot of the mountain

    We could stay there and never come back

    We could stay there and never come back

    You know it

    We could leave tonight

    But we could live by the foot of a mountain

    We could make us a white picket fence

    Build a home by the foot of the mountain

    We could stay there and see how it ends

    We could stay there and see how it ends

    We could stay there and see how it ends

     


     

    NOTHING IS KEEPING YOU HERE (Single Remix)

    (Music: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

    (Lyrics: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    The lights change on the hill

    The air seems strangely still

    Everyone's asleep

    The floorboards creak at dawn

    As you walk out on the lawn

    The grass is wet beneath

    You think it rather strange

    You think it rather weird

    It's fair to say that

    Nothing is keeping you here

    Nothing is keeping you here

    Nothing is keeping you here

    The phone is off the hook

    As you sink into a book

    You don't know where you are

    From the world detached

    Unto a girl you latched

    It never got too far

    And everybody's down

    And everybody cares

    It's fair to say that

    Nothing is keeping you here

    Nothing is keeping you here

    Nothing is keeping you here

    And everybody talks

    And everybody stares

    You knew your day to shine

    Would come without you here

    Come without you here

    Nothing was keeping you here

    Here...

    Nothing is keeping you here

     


     

    SHADOWSIDE (Single Edit) 

    (Music: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy )

    (Lyrics: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    The shadowside

    You say I have

    Is making everything

    Go bad

    You say I don't

    Care enough

    For all the things that

    I have got

    But I do

    I don't want to see myself descend

    Into the shadowside again

    If you ever let me go again

    In the shadowside I'll end

    The shadowside

    Where I go

    I'm never where

    I'm needed so

    You say I don't

    Give enough

    That I don't care for

    All I've got

    But I do

    I don't want to let myself descend

    Into the shadowside again

    If you're letting go of me again

    In the shadowside

    But I do

    And I will

    Yes I will

    I don't want to let myself descend

    Into the shadowside again

    If you're letting go of me again

    In the shadowside I'll end

    In the shadowside I'll end

    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    * An edited version of the song was released in 2010 on the "Butterfly, Butterfly (The Last Hurrah)" CD-Single, along with a remix titled "Steve Osborne Version".

     

     

    Butterfly, butterfly

    Flying into the wind

    You can be sure of it

    That's no place to begin

    Over-thinking every little thing

    Acknowledge the bell you can't unring

    Tomorrow

    You don't have to say what you're thinking

    You don't have to mean what you say

    Butterfly, Butterfly

    Flutter in to the skies

    Butterfly, Butterfly

    Their molecular cries

    Chrysalis dreams waiting on a fifth in-star

    These stained glass wings could only take you so far

    (Tomorrow)

    You don't have to say that it matters

    You don't have to turn something in

    Stay with it through thick and thin

    Butterfly, begin

    Butterfly

    Butterfly

    Tomorrow

    You don't have to mean what you say

    Left without a reason to stay

    Comes the last hurrah

    Here's our last hurrah

    Butterfly, butterfly

    Butterfly, butterfly

    Butterfly, butterfly

    You can be sure of it

    Butterfly, butterfly

    ROLLING THUNDER  
    (Pål Waaktaar / Magne Furuholmen)
     
    It's the weight below us
    And our fate before us
    Like a rolling thunder
    Rolling up from under
    Don't ever leave this way
    I know it's getting harder, but hey
    If your world should crumble, yeah
    And the rain gets in
    Running through your skin
    Soaking you outside in
    The rain... see it falling
    But I don't know how long it will be
    Until the storm's over
    I'll wait
    I will
    Like the years of silence
    To the growing violence
    Like a rolling thunder
    Rolling up from under
    Don't ever leave me this way
    Wait a little longer, yeah, stay
    Through the night I tumble, yeah
    When the rain comes in
    I will shed my skin
    Losing it from within
    See the rain ... it's falling
    But I... I won't be leaving your side
    Until all is over
    Yes, I'll wait
    I will
    So many lifetimes you've been waiting for it
    All through the good times when you tried to ignore it
    You hesitate
    It's come too late
    You hear the sound
    Of when wheels engage
    When the rain comes in
    I will shed my skin
    Losing it from within
    The rain came falling
    But I... I won't be leaving your side
    Until all is over
    So I'll wait
    Yes, I will
    Oooh
    And I don't know how long it will be
    Until the storm's over
    I'll wait
    Yes, I will
    All is over
    But I'll wait
    I will

     


     
    AND YOU TELL ME 
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    Please don't hurt me
    I have told you
    All my love is all I've got
    And tomorrow is the day
    When I for your sake
    I'm coming back
    And you tell me
    That I don't love you
    I’m trying hard to make you jealous
    Trying harder to make you stay
    Days are longer
    And nights are crazy
    It's so strange when you're away
    And you tell me
    That I don't love you
    Oh because I love
    I will show you
    All the faces my love can have
    So please
    Let me come to you
    And stay this time
    And you tell me
    That I don't love you
    Oh you know
    That it's just not true

     


     

    LIVING A BOY'S ADVENTURE TALE  
    (Words: Pål Waaktaar / Morten Harket)
    (Music: Pål Waaktaar)
     
    I've fixed my dwelling for the night
    Lights in pairs come passing by
    where I hide
    I need some time now on my own
    Leave my loneliness alone
    To lick my wounds
    Night has found me just in time
    To help me close my eyes
    One more time
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    In so many ways
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    For so many days
    I'm living a boy's adventure tale
    Can't escape  if I wanted to
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    I may be dreaming but I feel awake
    I've been lost in so many places
    Seeking love in so many faces
    A change of weather
    The rain pours down
    My head in hands
    Pressed to the ground
    And where am I supposed to go now
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    In so many ways
    Living a boy's adventure tale (aah)
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    A voice I hear
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    Singing a lullaby for me
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    Because of you
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    Oh you know it's true
    I'm living a boy's adventure tale
    In so many ways (aah)
    For so many days
    I love you... I love you...
    So many ways
    I love you...
    I love you...
    I love you...
    I love you...

     


     

    OUT OF BLUE COMES GREEN 

    (Pål Waaktaar)

     

    Father

    My wings are clipped

    See the steps that made me trip

    Now I'm so lonely

    Mother

    Time's frozen flame

    Seem to linger in the rain

    Holding me only

    Like a river I'm flowing

    And there's no way of knowing

    If I'm coming or going

    I need something to chain me down

    But it don't matter

    My eyes have seen...

    For better

    Out of blue comes green

    Mother

    I have gone wrong

    Work my fingers to the bone

    All I've been doing

    Father

    Proud that I am

    To be born into such hands

    Your love is so renewing

    And I know I can lose it

    It's part of life... you can't choose it

    As I touched the horizon

    It just felt like I'd die soon

    It don't matter

    My eyes have seen

    For better

    Out of blue comes green

    And like a river I'm flowing

    I need something to chain me down

    It don't matter

    And now I've seen

    For better

    Out of...

    Out of blue comes green

    Don't matter

    Out of blue comes green


     
    WAITING FOR HER
    (Pål Waaktaar / Magne Furuholmen)
     
    Waiting for her
    That's all I ever do
    Waiting for her
    So why didn't I
    Take the measures justified
    Our love has always been the same
    She comes, then goes away again
    Oh yeah
    My sweet one will always go...
    She used to say
    We never had the breaks we should've had
    Coming our way
    So why didn't I take that time and put it right
    Our love has always been the same
    She leaves me standing out in the rain - Oh yeah
    Send her my love
    She's all I'm thinking of
    Oh yeah
    I'm telling you
    We never had the breaks we should've had
    Coming our way
    And when she's sleeping by my side
    Eyes closed, all knowledge trapped inside - Oh yeah
    So why didn't I
    Take the measures justified
    Send her my love
    She's all I'm thinking of …
    Oh yeah
    I'm telling you
    Yeah
    My sweet one will always go...
    I'm telling you
    Oooohhh
    My sweet one will always go...

    HERE I STAND AND FACE THE RAIN 
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    (Ahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa)
    Help me
    I need your love
    Don't walk away
    The dark scares me so
    We're nothing apart
    Let's stay friends forever
    Forever
    Here I stand and face the rain
    I know that nothing's gonna be the same again
    I fear for what tomorrow brings
    Trust me
    For whom I am
    Lay all your pains
    Into these hands
    I got nothing to say
    But let's stay friends forever
    Forever
    Here I stand and face the rain
    I know that nothing's gonna be the same again
    I fear for what tomorrow brings
    Here I stand and face the pain
    Of knowing that nothing's gonna be the same again
    I fear for what tomorrow brings
    Here I stand and face the rain
    Knowing nothing's gonna be the same
    again
    Ahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa
    Here I stand and face the rain (Ahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa)
    Knowing nothing's gonna be the same (Ahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa)
    again (Ahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa)
    Ahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa

     


     

    THE WEIGHT OF THE WIND  

    (Pål Waaktaar)

     

    Your face looked new against the town

    You've come to lose some memories

    Like you I came to touch new grounds

    But you want to lose

    The weight of the wind (Of the wind)

    Rests hard on your shoulders (So hard)

    Bringing you down (Down down)

    The one that you love (Your love)

    Will never be found

    Ah

    You speak into the falling rain

    Words you'd lost, but found again

    And you see their snaky arms entwined

    So clear and cruel

    In your jealous mind

    But you've got to lose

    The weight of the wind (Of the wind)

    Rests hard on your shoulders (So hard)

    I know what that means (Down down)

    The one that you love (Your love)

    Will never be found

    Ah

    A-ee-a-ee-a-eee-ahhhhhhh

    The weight of the wind

    The weight of the wind (Of the wind)

    Hard on your shoulders (So hard)

    Driving you down (Down down)

    The one that you love (Your love)

    Will never be found

    You've lost her forever (You've lost her forever)

    Down... down...

    The weight of the wind

    The weight of the wind

    Rests hard on your shoulders

    Driving you down

    The one that you love

    Will never be found

    You've lost her forever

    Down... down...

    HUNTING HIGH AND LOW (Slow Version Demo)  
    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    Here I am
    And within the reach of my hands
    She's sound asleep and she's sweeter now
    Than the wildest dream could have seen her
    And I watch her slipping away
    Though I know I'll be hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
    Hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to lengths I'll go
    To find her again
    Upon this my dreams are depending
    Through the dark
    I sense the pounding of her heart
    Next to mine
    She's the sweetest love I could find
    So I guess I'll be hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
    High and Low
    High
    Do you know what it means to love you
    I'm hunting high and low
    And now she's telling me she's got to go away
    I'll always be hunting high and low
    Only for you (And now she's telling me)
    Watch me tearing myself to pieces
    Hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
    Oh, for you I'll be hunting high and low

    We're talking away
    I don't know what

    Today's another day to find you
    Shying away
    I'll be coming for your love, OK?
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two

    Stumbling away
    Slowly learning that life is OK.
    Say after me

    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)  
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    Oh the things that you say
    Is it life or
    Just to play my worries away
    You're all the things I've got to remember
    You're shying away
    I'll be coming for you anyway
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)  
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    (Take on me - Take on me)

    THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. (Alternate Video - Long Version) 
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    * The is a different (longer) version from the regular video version.
    Some cuts in the mix sound a little strange and rough.
    This version ends with the American National Anthem played right after the A-ha song.
     
    Touch me
    How can it be
    Believe me
    The sun always shines on T.V.
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me
    To me...
    I Reached inside myself
    And found nothing there
    To ease the pressure of
    My ever worrying mind
    All my powers waste away
    I fear the crazed and lonely looks
    The mirror's sending me
    These Days
    Touch me
    How can it be
    Believe me
    The sun always shines on T.V.
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me
    Please don't ask me to defend
    The shameful lowlands
    Of the way I'm drifting
    Gloomily through time
    I reached inside myself today
    Thinking there's got to be some way
    To keep my troubles distant
    Touch me
    How can it be
    Believe me
    The sun always shines on T.V.
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me

    I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU (Original Video Version - Album Version)  

    (Pål Waaktaar)  
     
    It wasn't the rain that washed away...
    Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
    Putting the gun down on the bedside table
    I must have realised
    It wasn't the rain
    That made no difference
    And I could have sworn it wasn't me
    Yet I did it all so coldly
    Almost slowly
    Plain for all to see
    Oh c'mon please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    How can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you
    Hey...
    I can still hear our screams competing
    You're hissing your S's like a snake
    Now in the mirror stands
    Half a man
    I thought no one could break
    It wasn't the rain
    That made no difference
    Nervously drumming on: Run away
    But I want the guilt to get me
    Thoughts to wreck me
    Preying on my mind
    So, please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you
    Please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    Please now
    Talk to me
    Oh, tell me what to do (Helpful)
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you  
    You
    I've been losing you
    You
    I've been losing you
    (Talk to me)
    (Run away... Run away...)
    Run away !

     


     

    MANHATTAN SKYLINE (VIDEO - 7" EDIT - LONGER INTRO + FADE) 

    (Words: Pål Waaktaar)

    (Music: Mags / Pål Waaktaar)  

     

    * The video version is different from the regular video.

    Both its intro and fade out are longer than in the regular video.

     

    We sit and watch umbrellas fly

    I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry

    I hear myself say,

    "My boat's leaving now"

    So we shake hands and cry

    Now I must wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    (Wave goodbye)

    You know

    I don't want to cry again

    Don't want to cry again

    I don't want to say goodbye

    Don't ever want to cry again

    I don't want to run away

    I don't want to race this pain

    I'll never see your face again

    Oh but how

    How can you say

    That I didn't try...

    No...

    I leave to their goodbyes

    I've come to depend on the look in their eyes

    My blood's sweet for pain

    The wind and the rain bring back words of a song

    And they say wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    Wave goodbye

    (Wave goodbye)

    But you know

    I don't want to fall again

    I don't want to know this pain

    I don't want another friend

    I don't want to try again

    Don't ever want to see you hurt

    Don't let me see you hurt

    I don't want to cry again

    I'll never see your face again

    How can you say

    That I didn't try

    You know I did

    (I don't want to cry again)

    So I read to myself

    A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons

    On the front page

    A black and white picture of

    Manhattan Skyline

     


     

    STAY ON THESE ROADS (VIDEO - ALBUM VERSION) 

    (Morten Harket / Mags / Pål Waaktaar)

     

    * The video version is the same as the album - single version.

     

    The cold has a voice

    It talks to me

    Stillborn, by choice

    And it airs no need

    To hold

    Old man feels the cold...

    Oh baby don't

    'cause I've been told

    Stay on these roads

    We shall meet, I know

    Stay on... my love

    We shall meet, I know

    I know

    Where joy should reign

    These skies restrain

    ‘Shadow your love...'

    The voice trails off again

    The voice trails off again  

    Old man feels the cold

    Oh baby don't

    'cause I've been told

    Stay on these roads

    We shall meet, I know

    Stay on... my love

    You feel so weak, be strong

    Stay on, stay on

    We shall meet, I know

    I know, my love, I know

    Feel the cold

    Winter's gone and I'm at home

    Stay on these roads

    We shall meet, I know

    Stay on... my love

    We will meet, I know

    So stay on...

    I know

    Stay my love... Stay on...

    We will meet, I know

    I know... I know...

     


     

    CRYING IN THE RAIN (VIDEO - ALTERNATE CUT - ALBUM VERSION)

    (Howard Greenfield / Carole King)

     

    * Though the film itself is a different cut from the regular video, the audio track of the song is still the same album version.

     

    I'll never let you see

    The way my broken heart is hurting me

    I've got my pride and I know how to hide

    All the sorrow and pain

    I'll do my crying in the rain

    If I wait for stormy skies

    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes

    You'll never know that I still love you

    Only  heartaches remain

    I'll do my crying in the rain

    Raindrops falling from heaven

    Could never take away my misery

    But since we're not together

    I've prayed for stormy weather

    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

    Someday when my crying's done

    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun

    I may be a fool

    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain

    I'll do my crying in the rain

    Ohhhh

    since we're not together

    I've prayed for stormy weather

    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

    Someday when my crying's done

    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun

    I may be a fool

    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain

    I'll do my crying in the rain

    I'll do my crying in the rain

    I'll do my crying in the rain

    It's time we said goodbye
    Time now to decide

    Yes, this time will be the best
    And when the evenings fall

    It's time...yeah, to break free
    It's time to pull away
    For you and for me
    Oh, yeah
    To break free

    We need to celebrate the mystery

    It's time for you and I
    Oh don't you feel so small
    Dark is the night for all
    Time

    SHAPES THAT GO TOGETHER (Video)  
    (Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar)

     

    * The video version is the same as the single version.
     
    When you were wrapped in tangles
    I was free
    And when you were undecided
    I believed
    It's alright, tonight
    On a deep blue mountain high
    We're shapes that go together
    You and I
    When you were filled with longing
    I belonged
    And when you were weak from trying
    I was strong
    But it's alright, tonight
    On a deep blue mountain high
    We're shapes that go together
    You and I
    Shapes that go together
    You and I
    Alright
    Childhood winters
    Come to me
    Whisper softly
    So tenderly
    Hey...
    I know, I walked twenty five miles to hold you
    Just to find you'd moved away
    When you were wrapped in tangles
    I was free
    And when you were almost blinded
    I could see
    But it's alright, tonight
    On a deep blue mountain high
    We're shapes that go together
    You and I
    Shapes that go together
    You and I
    You and I (Shapes that go together)
    You and I (Shapes that go together)
    (Shapes that go together)
    We go together (Shapes that go together)
    You and I (Shapes that go together)
    (The shapes that go together)
    When you were wrapped in tangles (Shapes that go together)
    I was free (Shapes that go together)
    Free (Shapes that go together)

    SUMMER MOVED ON (Video Version)
    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    * The video version is the same as the album version.
     
    Summer moved on
    And the way it goes
    You can't tag along
    Honey moved out
    And the way it went
    Leaves no doubt
    Moments will pass
    In the morning light
    I found out
    Seasons can't last
    And there's one thing
    Left to ask
    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    With nobody else around
    Friendships move on
    Until the day
    You can't get along
    Handshakes unfold
    And the way it goes
    No one knows
    Moments will pass
    In the morning light
    I found out
    Seasons can't last
    So there's just one thing
    Left to ask
    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    Stay, don't just walk away
    With nobody else around
    Reasons can't last
    And there's just one thing
    Left to ask
    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    Stay, don't just walk away
    With nobody else around
    Summer moved on
     

     

    MINOR EARTH - MAJOR SKY (Video Version)  
    (Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    I can't see me in this empty place
    Just another lonely face
    I can't see me here in outer space
    It's so hard to leave a trace
    And I try and I try and I try
    But it never comes out right
    Yes I try and I try and I try
    But I never get it right
    It's a
    Minor Earth - Major Sky
    Minor Earth - Major Sky (It's a major major sky)
    Minor Earth - Major Sky (It's a major major sky)
    I can't see me in this lonely town
    Not a friendly face around
    Can you hear me when I speak out loud
    Hear my voice above the crowd
    And I try and I try and I try
    But it never comes out right
    Yes I try and I try and I try
    But I never get it right
    It's a
    Minor Earth - Major Sky
    Minor Earth - Major Sky (It's a major major sky)
    Minor Earth - Major Sky (It's a major major sky)

    LIFELINES (Video Version)  
    (Magne Furuholmen)
     
    * The video version is the same as the album version.
     
    One time to know that it’s real
    One time to know how it feels
    That’s all
    One call – your voice on the phone
    One place – a moment alone
    That’s all
    What do you see?
    What do you know?
    One sign?
    What do I do?
    Just follow your lifelines through
    What if it hurts?
    What then?
    What do we do?
    What do you say?
    Don’t throw your lifelines away
    Don’t throw your lifelines away
    One time – just once in my life
    Yeah
    One time – to know it can happen twice
    One shot of a clear blue sky
    One look – I see no reasons why we can’t
    One chance to go back
    To the point where everything starts
    One chance to keep it together
    When things fall apart
    One sign to make us believe it’s true
    What do you see?
    Where do we go?
    One sign?
    How do we grow?
    By letting your lifelines show
    What if we do?
    What after now?
    What do you say?
    How do I know?
    Don’t let your lifeline go
    Don’t let your lifeline go
    Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh
    Don't let your lifeline go

     


     

    DID ANYONE APPROACH YOU (Video Version) 

    ( Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    * The video version is the same as the album version.

     

    You never look up

    You never look back

    You never say anything based on fact

    You’ve got issues going way back

    You never say ‘hi’

    You never say much

    You never make an effort to stay in touch

    I got this feeling something happened here

    Something happened here

    Did anybody feel you?

    Did anybody deal you?

    Did anybody make you do some things now?

    Did anyone approach you?

    Did anybody coach you?

    Did anybody tell you what to say now?

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless at all

    You never looked up

    You never look back

    You never did anything in between

    Are things black and white with you

    You never believe

    You never belong

    You never made milestones to call your own

    I got this feeling something happened here

    Something happened here

    Did anybody hide you?

    Did anybody fight you?

    Did anyone decide to do some harm now?

    Did anybody read you?

    Did anybody bleed you?

    Did anybody feed you lots of junk now?

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless at all

    Hopeless – it’s not hopeless

    Doubtful – but not hopeless at all

    Something happened here

    Something happened here

     


     

    VELVET (European Cut Video Version)  

    (Lauren Savoy / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    * The video version is the same as the album version.

     

    Her skin is like velvet

    Her face cut from stone

    Her eyes when she's smiling

    Will never reach home

    But hear how she sings

    Her touch would be tender

    Her lips would be warm

    But when we're together

    I'm always alone

    But hear how she sings

    But hear how she sings

    But hear how she sings

    Her skin is like velvet

    So I went to her home

    Her place like a palace

    With things you can't own

    Her skin is like velvet

    But hear how she sings

    But hear how she sings...

    Oooohhh...

    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

     

    * The video version is the same as the single version.

     

    Butterfly, butterfly

    Flying into the wind

    You can be sure of it

    That's no place to begin

    Over-thinking every little thing

    Acknowledge the bell you can't unring

    Tomorrow

    You don't have to say what you're thinking

    You don't have to mean what you say

    Butterfly, Butterfly

    Flutter in to the skies

    Butterfly, Butterfly

    Their molecular cries

    Chrysalis dreams waiting a fifth in-star

    These stained glass wings could only take you so far

    (Tomorrow)

    You don't have to say that it matters

    You don't have to turn something in

    Stay with it through thick and thin

    Butterfly, begin

    Butterfly

    Butterfly

    Tomorrow

    You don't have to mean what you say

    Left without a reason to stay

    Comes the last hurrah

    Here's our last hurrah

    Butterfly, butterfly

    Butterfly, butterfly

    Butterfly, butterfly

    You can be sure of it

    Butterfly, butterfly

    We're talking away
    I don't know what
    I'm to say I'll say it anyway
    Today's another day to find you
    Shying away
    I'll be coming for your love, OK?
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    So needless to say
    I'm odds and ends
    But I'm me
    Stumbling away
    Slowly learning that life is OK.
    Say after me
    It's no better to be safe than sorry
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)  
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    Oh the things that you say
    Is it live or
    Just to play my worries away
    You're all the things I've got to remember
    You're shying away
    I'll be coming for you anyway
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)  
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
