ILLUMINATE THE SKY  

(Martin Halla, Lowell Boland, Magne Furuholmen, Martin Terefe)

I open the door for you
So you don't have to use
Your precious parts my dear
I don't want to see them bruised

Your body's a queen my dear
Resting by my side
No need to rush away
You're free to take your time

I wish you'd stay
I wish you'd stay
So we could enjoy each others space
Not to invade
Or to degrade
But to illuminate the sky
You and I
We'll illuminate the sky

And please can I pour you some wine
Just to cool you down
And you've never looked so fine
As in that silken gown

Oh, dance, dance, dance with me
I love to see you smile
And move, move, move with me
I'll hold you like a child

I wish you'd stay
I wish you'd stay
So we could enjoy each others space
Not to invade
Or to degrade
But to illuminate the sky
You and I
We'll illuminate the sky
And you and I
We'll illuminate the sky

Never again will I let you down no
Never again will you wear that frown no
I will make sure that we stay up high
And Illuminate the sky

I wish you'd stay
I wish you'd stay
So we could enjoy each others space
Not to invade
Or to degrade
But to illuminate the sky
And you and I
We'll illuminate the sky
And you and I
We'll illuminate the sky
And you and I
We'll illuminate the sky

 


 

IGNITED  

(Espen Gulbrandsen, Magne Furuholmen, Martin Terefe)

I was over
I was through
I was sinking
Then came you

I was into the pity game
My mind stuck in a sad refrain
But you

Like a drop of dew I fall
My tragedy the curtain call

I'm delighted
I'm delighted
That you know my name
I'm ignited
I'm ignited
Finally again

I was over
I was through
I would sink into
A state of gloom

Beating myself up again
My mind stuck in a sad refrain
About you

But sudden drops of rain can fall
And seeing you can change it all

I'm delighted
I'm delighted
That you know my name
I'm ignited
I'm ignited
Finally again

I didn't know what I was looking for
I pictured you inside my mind
And found a strength I never felt before
So stop wasting time
Let's stop wasting time
I'm ignited

I'm ignited
I'm delighted
That you know my name
I'm ignited
I'm ignited
Finally again
I'm excited
I'm excited
Now I'm in the game
I'm ignited
I'm ignited
Finally again

IF HE'S THE ONE  

(Glen Scott, Martin Terefe, Magne Furuholmen)
 

If he's the one that your heart beats for
Who keeps you warm on your nights alone
And holds you tight before you fall asleep
Then he's the one, the one I wanna be

If he's the one that you talk about
You tell your friends you're flying in the clouds
If he's the one you dream about when he's gone away
Then he's the one, the one I wanna be

My heart beats like a drum
To think of you as the one
When will you
See my burning flame
My heart beats like a drum
To think of you as the one
When will you
See my burning flame

If he's the one that could make you sad
Break your heart or make you mad
If he's the one without the sense
To know what he's got in you
Then please, please remember me
Cause he's the one, the one I wanna be

 


 

ALL THE RED LIGHTS  

(Magne Furuholmen, Martin Terefe)
 

Crossroad. Stop sign
Fast heart
Slowing down the mind

Wrong turn. Wrong town
Stuck in a ditch
But for the last time

You fix your hair
But nothing’s ever good enough for him
He cuts you down, it hurts
It always does, it always does

So get in, drive fast
Let's break out of this town
Run all the red lights
Let nothing hold you down

Foolproof. Hardened
Not you –
Beautiful girl

Blue smoke, kick down
Fast track to the
open world

You can be free
Just like a flower by the sea
You lost years to this
So come with me, yeah come with me

Get in, drive fast
Don’t let him hold you down
Run all the red lights
And break out of this town

Come with me

Get in, drive fast
Don’t let them hold you down
Run all the red lights
Break out of this town
Get in, drive fast
Don’t let them hold you down
Run all the red lights
We'll break out of this town

EVERYBODY'S ANGEL  

(Martin Halla, Magne Furuholmen)

 

Everybody hear now
Everybody leave now
She needs some space
For her own thoughts now

Everybody's angel
Blessing on your soul
She needs some space
For her own thoughts now

Please leave her alone
This is frightening enough as it is
Bring her around
From this rat-poisoned time in one piece

Hey now, you need some alternate advice
Something to put your mind at ease
When you're stressed out
Oh now, you need some definite advice
Somewhere to put your troubles behind
And live everyday like it's your last

Everybody hear now
Everybody leave now
She needs some space
For her own thoughts now

Please leave her alone
This is frightening enough as it is
Bring her around
From this rat-poisoned time in one piece

Hey now, you need some alternate advice
Something to put your mind at ease
When you're stressed out
Oh now, you need some definite advice
Somewhere to put your troubles behind
And live everyday
Live everyday
Like it's your own life

Everybody hear now
Everybody leave now

DRAGONFLY  

(Magne Furuholmen)

 

* This cover recording of Magne Furuholmen's song was released as the fifth track on the "Release Me" 5-track CD Single.

 

 

I will never let you down

I will always be around

I will never raise my voice

I will keep this tender poise

In the time we are here

We'll see love disappear

In the time that we're here

We'll be lost in our fear

Lost in our fear

I will never bring you down

I will always stick around

I will heat you when you’re cold

I will nurse you when you're old

In the time we have left

We’ll raise eyes to the sky

Don’t ask how

Don’t ask why

Just fly, dragonfly

Fly, dragonfly

Just fly, dragonfly
