01. Sweet Leaf

Music & lyrics by Tchort
Oh sweet leaf
Swaying in the wind
Under stars and moon
And sunrise gloom
Hanging on the tree
That gives you life

Oh sweet leaf
Has your time come?
Will your journey begin?
Afraid of falling and falling
With the wind
Away, away from your origin

Oh sweet leaf
How was it?
Hanging under stars
Feeling the wind
Knowing you're safe
Clinging on to me

Oh sweet leaf
Why did you leave?
Why didn't you stay?
How can I be your guardian angel
When you are away?

Oh dear father
Let me tell you
I loved to sway in the wind
Under the stars and moon
And sunrise gloom
Clinging on to you

Oh dear father
Can't you see?
I am not running away
I am just searching
For the real me

Oh dear mother
Why do we have to go?
Why don't we stay?
How can we be yours
When we are always away?

Oh sweet leaf
When your time comes


02. The Burden Is Mine... Alone

Music & lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
I feel the blood under my skin
Like so many times before
This journey got the best of me
And I am sorry I couldn't wait anymore

The burden is mine... alone

I feel the blood under my skin
And I hate every part of me
How could I lose the only thing worth keeping
Now I'm sorry I didn't wait for you

The burden is mine... alone


03. Maybe?

Music & lyrics by Kjetil Nordhus
Maybe
Dreams apart
You're visual for all
Maybe
Another time
You're more than air
In another state of mind
You're still dancing
In another state of mind

No need
To be afraid
You're not visual for all
No need to hide
You're no more than air
In another state of mind
You're still dancing
In another state of mind
(You're there)


04. Alone

Music by Tchort
Lyrics by Edgar Allan Poe, poem "Alone"
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were I have not seen
As others saw I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I lov'd, I loved alone.
Then in my childhood in the dawn
Of a most stormy life was drawn
From ev'ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that 'round me roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass'd me flying by
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.


05. 9-29-045

Music & lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
Part I - My Greater Cause

As I ran down the street all the
Faces appeared to me one by one
By the fifth I took a sudden turn
The melting snow revealed the bodies
Buried long ago
All the violence a man can take
The broken bones, and broken homes
Beneath my feet

On the dark side
We'll meet again
And cook it up for one more dance
It's who we are

But I swear it'll be my last
And if I go, I go alone

In the eyes of the elephant
Nothing's too big and no one
Proves you wrong
But the kind they had to offer
Didn't do me good
It barely cracked the softer shell

On the dark side
We'll meet again
And cook it up for one more dance
It's who we are

But I swear it'll be my last
And if I go, I go alone
Yes I failed and I can't go back
I'm wasted beyond my years
And I breath just to let it go

All that I wanted was to slip away
For a little while
'Cause I felt alone
And I couldn't keep up with the world

Part II - Home Coming
[Instrumental]

Part III - House Of Cards

Where am I?
They're all gone
All is black and white
I think I have passed on

All so warm
All so calm
All these worries shutting down
Something's wrong
Something's wrong

Is it really you?

A moment of
And they're all gone
If I could close my eyes
I'm sure I'd disappear

Here they come
Pulling me up from the mud
I've failed yet I'm holding on
Here they come
I'm hiding in vain
My shadow and I
In our house of cards

Never did I question myself for the truth
There never was a greater cause
Never did I open my eyes for you
But there it was my greater cause

Here they come
Pulling me up from the mud
I've failed yet I'm holding on
Here they come
I'm hiding in vain
My shadow and I
In our house of cards

07. High Tide Waves

Music by Michael S. Krumins
Lyrics by Tommy Jackson
Hear that something... A pale and misty sound
The more things change, the more they stay the same
Heading out in High Tide Waves
Not afraid to fall, I'm older now, I'm standing tall

I'm holding head above water
Ain't it going down
I'm holding head above water
Ain't gonna drown, ain't gonna drown
I'm holding head above water
Can't hold me tied
I'm holding head above water
You can't break me... shredded pieces

I've spoken different words... A grey soar voice
Different lines, remains the same
Heading out in High Tide Waves
Not afraid to fall, I'm older now, I'm standing tall

On this quest for answers, shaped my eyes
Without anger, wasted lines
Can't you sense this feeling, feel it flow
I am stronger now, (I've) let the tension go

I'm holding head above water
Ain't it going down
I'm holding head above water
Ain't gonna drown, ain't gonna drown
I'm holding head above water
Can't hold me tied
I'm holding head above water
You can't break me... shredded pieces


08. Six Ribbons

Music & lyrics by Jon English
If I where a minstrel
I'd sing you six love songs to tell the whole world of the love That we share

If I where a merchant
I'd bring you six diamonds with six blood red roses
For my love to wear

But I am a simple man a poor common farmer
So take my six ribbons to tie back your hair
Yellow and brown, blue as the sky, red as my blood,
Green as your eye.

If I were a nobleman
I'd bring you six palaces with six hundred servants
For comforting care
But I am a simple man a poor common farmer
So take my six ribbons to tie back your hair

If I where a minstrel
I'd sing you six love songs to tell the whole world of the love That we share
So be not afraid, my love
You're never alone, love while you wear my ribbons
Tying back your hair

Once I was a simple man a poor common farmer
I gave you six ribbons to tie back your hair

Tooralee, tooralie
All I can share is only six ribbons to tie back your hair

Tooralee, tooralie
All I can share is only six ribbons to tie back your hair
