INTRO (UNTITLED) 

(Written by Magne F.)

 

(Instrumental)

 


 

A dot of black in the blue of your bliss  

(Written by Magne F.)

 

The cracked sandy surface of your kitchen floor;

A dry desert-plain that begs for more,

Than mine and yours casual conversation.

The brown grassy hills of your wall to wall -

The fake ancient war-chest beats in the hall,

The prophetic words in the library all speak of isolation.

Always forever but never like this.

Thereís a dot of black in the blue of your bliss.

In white pregnant layers of linen clouds.

Youíre hiding deep in their womblike shroud.

Each stillborn morning seems extremely loud -

Designed to smash your face in.

Always forever but never like this.

Thereís a dot of black in the blue of your bliss.

Always forever but never like this.

Thereís a dot of black in the blue of your bliss.

The cracked sandy surface of your kitchen floor;

A dry desert plain that begs for more than casual conversation.

Youíre learning to live with his many faces

The rub is heís hard in all the wrong places.

Always forever but never like this.

Thereís a dot of black in the blue of your bliss

Yeah

Always forever but never like this.

Thereís a dot of black in the blue of your bliss

 


 

come back

(Written by Magne F.)

 

* Note: A keyboard melody from this song was later re-used for "The Bandstand" on the FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN album.

 

Come back - all is forgiven.

Come back - all is not lost.

Come back - I know what you want now.

Come back to me.

Come down off your pedestal.

Come down - off your high horse.

Come get some dirt under your fingernails.

Come sing for me.

Come sing for me.

Plans change,

Change is in their nature.

But I'll be here come rain or come shine.

I wouldnít care much if itís dry or soaking wet

Now, we only miss what we donít get.

So come now, time is a-wasting.

Come out wherever you are.

Come on back here

You know what I want from you:

Come sing with me.

Come sing with me.

Get up and rise to the challenge.

Get back here.

This time itís alright.

Get over here

Your pointís been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Come back,

Come back,

Come back,

Come back to me.

Come back,

Come back,

Come back to me.

 


 

The longest night  

(Written by Magne F. a Martin Terefe)

 

* Note: The verses, some arrangements and a keyboard melody were later re-used for "Foot Of The Mountain" on the FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN album.

 

Keep your clever lines.

Hold your easy rhymes.

Silence everything.

Silence always wins.

Itís a perfect alibi -

Thereís no need to analyze.

It will be alright

Through the longest night,

Just silence everything.

As you know;

As you know

Thatís how it all begins.

And you know;

Yes you know

They canít touch what lies within.

So you keep those clever lines,

So nice to hide behind,

Away from me

Through the longest night of our lives.

Learn from my mistake;

Leave what others take.

Speak when spoken to.

And do what others do.

Cuz silence always wins,

So silence everything.

It will be alright

In the morning light,

Just silence everything.

As you know;

As you know

They canít touch what lies within.

And you know;

And you know

Thatís where it all begins.

So keep your clever lines,

Hold your easy rhymes.

You were quick to judge.

Quick to criticise.

But too slow to know

What I've realised;

Through the longest night

The longest night

Of our lives

 


 

Time and place

(Written by Magne F.)

 

Thereís a time and place for everything -

For the battles that you cannot win.

Thereís plan in all the suffering -

Thoughts behind the foolish grin.

There is something good in everyone.

Hindsight tells us what we should have done.

But thereís a line you cross you donít come back.

Where self-defence is self-attack.

Well, maybe there is.

Yeah, maybe there is.

If you believe it exists.

I just donít see it.

These are the faces we will never know.

These are places we will never go.

As we sit and watch the world revolve

Around the problems that we cannot solve.

There are many things to hide behind.

Like the answers we will never find.

You say the clues are everywhere.

You say thereís something in the air.

Well, yeah, maybe there is.

If you believe it exists,

Then, yeah, maybe there is.

Your hands are getting so old.

Your heart does what itís told.

I know.... I know what weíre being sold,

I just donít see it

I know what we're told

I just don't see it

 


 

running out of reasons

(Written by Magne F.)

 

* Note: The guitar melody were later re-used for "Riding The Crest" on the FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN album.

 

Iíd like to bring the shoreline to the sea.

Iíd like to think that youíll come back to me.

Iíd like to write a decent melody

To bring back your sweet tenderness to me.

But every time I try to write,

Well, nothing springs to mind.

The only sound advice that I can find is

Walk away.

Walk away, now.

Youíre running out reasons you should stay.

Turn away.

Just turn away, now.

Iím running out of clever things to say,

But thatís ok.

Iíd like to lead the ocean to the shore.

Iíd like to think that youíll be back for more.

And we could live some place with ocean-view:

Lake Como, California, somewhere new!

But every time I try to call well nothing springs to mind.

The only sound advice that I can find is;

Walk away.

Walk away, now.

Youíre running out of reasons you should stay.

Turn away.

Donít hesitate now.

Iím running out of clever things to say.

And that's ok.

 


 

forgotten not forgiven

(Written by Magne F.)

 

We made a vow that

We would live and learn.

But test your wings

Youíre gonna crash and burn.

And by these words weíre driven:

Forgotten not forgiven -

Some day weíll say

Thatís who we were.

We couldnít know how

It would twist and turn.

At first it wasnít cause

For much concern.

But with these words weíre even:

Forgotten not forgiven.

Some day youíll see

Thatís not all we were.

Your head upon my shoulder

Makes me a little bolder.

What doesnít break you

Only makes you stronger.

The roomĎs a little colder,

And weíre a little older.

So rest your weary head

Upon my pillow,

And let your hair flow down

Like weeping willows.

With these words weíre even;

Forgotten not forgiven.

Some day weíll see

Thatís not all we were.

 


 

more than good enough

(Written by Magne F.)

 

We donít need to see how this road bends.

Donít need to know how every story ends.

It wouldnít be the same it was before,

And I donít really need to know much more.

But you donít have to hide your pretty face.

No you donít have to hide those pretty eyes.

You shouldnít have to phase out and pretend like you donít...

You don't understand.

We donít have to learn from our mistakes,

Just to know exactly what it takes.

You donít have to listen to what I say

Who am I to tell you anyway!

So you donít have to hide your pretty face.

No, you donít have to hide those pretty eyes.

You shouldnít have to worry all that much

Shouldn't have to think about this stuff.

I know you think you must, I know you think you should.

I know youíre doubting if you could but I know you would.

I see it every time I watch your face my friend:

Ooooh

There will come a time when you will rise again!

You donít have to hang your head in shame.

You are more than good enough for them.

You shouldnít have to think about this stuff,

Youíre more than good enough.

Yes you're more than good enough.

You are more than good enough.

More than good enough

 


 

too far, too fast  

(Written by Magne F.)

 

Nights I lie awake,

Your voice inside me.

Strange how much it aches.

Strange how long it takes.

We played a different game.

We were younger.

And something we could feel

Was something that was real.

Too far too fast,

And too good to last.

Too good to last for long.

For long!

So take a day off

From your life

And spend it here with me.

Drop your guard

Just one more time,

And then Iíll set you free.

Take a look inside yourself

And tell me what you see;

By now I thought youíd realized

Iím perfect company.

Too far too fast

And too good to last,

Too good to last for long.

For long!

Like the days rush to greet you.

Like the stars fall to meet you.

Like the sunshine that heats you.

Yeah

Like the rain when it beats you

And cheats you,

Again and again.

Too far too fast,

And too good to last.

Too good to last for long.

Too high too soon

And too much to swallow.

Too hard and tough act to follow.

To follow.

Follow.

 


 

watch this space

(Written by Magne F.)

 

Whatís your game?

What do you say?

Here tomorrow,

Gone today?

Who to blame?

Itís all the same:

So much effort

And all in vain.

But watch this space!

One of these days

I will make sense of it,

And put things

In their right place.

If you hesitate

It may be too late.

The same mistake,

Again and again.

Force of habit

Pulls the weight.

Such a shame when

Things go to waste.

But watch this space!

Cuz one of these days

Iíll make it up to you

And put everything

Back into place.

So watch this space.

Yeah one of these days

Iíll come down

From off your wall...

And get right into your face.

In all the wrong places...

Like the stars fall to meet you...
