It’s your life

The garden of Eden has closed for the season

and you’re desperately trying to find a good reason

Feels like having a key but no lock

But life doesn’t have any riddles in stock

REFR And you can make it, you can break it

and remake it.

And the choice is yours if you want it,

Just don’t break it

Cause this is what it all adds up to:

It’s your life

Lyrics: Lars Göransson

Music: Kée Tengblad

© 2011, Tengblad, Göransson

You know it won’t happen till hell freezes over

Still you put your trust in a four leaf clover

But the lotto office won’t have to pay

when finally your numbers come up one day

REFR And you can make it...


Ego

Too many people, standing all alone

Feeling rather miserable, right to the bone

The magic word of today, is not we

Hypnotize your ego

Set yourself free

REFR I – Ego

Empathy, sympathy, relics from the past

Concentrate on yourself, to make things last

Don’t bother ‘bout the others

Express violent abuse

Disregard your next of kin

They are of no good use

Lyrics & music: Kée Tengblad

© 2011, Tengblad

REFR

Too many people, walking all alone

Waiting for the call on their mobile phone

Communication, but not a living soul

Care about each other

At the edge of the black hole

REFR


Enkel biljett

Kliver upp, det är tidig morgon,

Kroppen känns så slö

Ruttet väder, ruttna tankar

Jag vet att jag kan dö

Ingen vet, hur djupt jag kan falla

Ingen vet, hur jag ska ta mig upp

Ingen vet, jag döljer det för alla

Så ingen kommer att förstå

Jag går ut, nedåt mot stationen

En sista cigarett

Tåget kommer, allting snurrar

Jag köper min biljett

Lyrics: Kée Tengblad

Music: Carl-Johan Melin

© 2011, Melin, Tengblad

Ingen vet, om jag kommer tillbaka

Ingen vet, vad tåget har för mål

Hur som helst, ingenting att sakna

Jag skyndar mig ombord

Med expressfart, mot evigheten

Allt känns stilla nu

Som mjuka vindar, i mina drömmar

Långt utanför finns du

Ingen vet hur länge jag ska sova

Ingen vet, när tiden tagit slut

Inga löften, inget kvar att lova

I tanken lever jag ändå


Natt i Stockholm

Vi spanar ut i natten

Hör alla ljuden, alla skratten

Sinnet mjukt som sammet

En glädje växer där i glammet

Hej gamla Stockholm

Du är nog världens bästa stad

När jag är i Stockholm

Så blir jag alltid glad

Och sjunger..

I gryningsljusets dimma

Ses svanar långsamt simma

Vilande på vatten

Staden vaknar efter natten

Lyrics: Kée Tengblad

Hej gamla Stockholm

Du är världens bästa stad

När jag är i Stockholm

Så blir jag alltid glad

Jag sjunger…..


No5 Hit (A Song for Will)

Juvenile deliquants, linger round the city streets

Leather boys stand pale, awaiting dawn

The lonely preacher searching God, accepts his defeat

Children just to wild to be born

Bridge

REFR

Everything she said, why did she have to say it?

And the game she staged, why did we have to play?

Everything we made, our destiny to make it?

We are all children of the war

World is round, but my mind is square

Good intentions won’t do

Selling my love at the country fair.

Watch my flowers grow

The chosen few, our band of brothers, watch the solemn scene

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown

To sleep, perhaps to dream, is what his plea is all about

There is no mercy here, the jester frowns

Bridge

Everything she said, why did she have to say it?

And the game she staged, why did we have to play?

Everything we made, our destiny to make it?

We are all children of the war

Everything she said, she said without compassion

The sunlight fades, on sadness and despair

Everything we hailed, it soon went out of fashion

Have pity on the children of the war

REFR

We are all children of the war

Everything she said, she said without compassion

The sunlight fades, on sadness and despair

Everything we hailed, it soon went out of fashion

Have pity on the children of the war


Come Join the Party

I still remember

The people I knew

Way back then,

In my early days

I’d be a comrade and a friend

If I only would

Sign on

To their smart ass ways

They were pushin’ and pullin’

Humpin’ and hollerin’

Twistin’ and turnin’

To put me on a shelf

’If you’re not with us

Then your dead set against us’

That’s how they said it:

Don’t think for yourself

Lyrics & music: Lars Göransson

© 2011, Göransson

REFR

Come join the party

We’ve got booze and grass

And it will all – be a gas

Come join the movement

Don’t think and don’t wait

Being righteous – feels so great

I toddled along

The path of my life

Trying so hard

To do things right

I did’nt hear when they said

(or maybe I did’nt want to)

’If the king is against us,

Then the king must die’

REFR

Come join the party...

From a burning building

Through an open window

A desperate man was calling for help

A loud gunshot

Took him out of his misery

And then the illusion ended for me

REFR

Come join the party...


Hedgehog Road

Let’s take the tram to a place of dreams

To a room, without a view

And just as long as one and one is two

– We won’t back down or surrender

Bridge

REFR

You’ll never be

What people want you to be

And in a trap

The cheese is always free

So fiddle your licks

Make noises with your sticks

And follow your thought

Though some may say it’s nix

Down on Hedgehog Road

The guys are there and playing

Down on Hedgehog Road

– The beat goes on

Down on Hedgehog Road

Continuing your story

Down on Hedgehog Road

– We carry on

Lyrics: Lars Göransson

Music: Carl-Johan Melin

© 2011, Melin, Göransson

The tram is rolling, passing by

We respond to the call

And in this tiny place, there’s room for all

– and you know time, means nothing, nothing

Bridge

REFR

You’ll never be...

Down on Hedgehog Road...


Morning Of My Life

It was a rough ride, I rambled on

Mistakes I made, were mine alone

I took a turn, where the road went on

I went astray and was all gone

Nothing easy, nothing clear

The art of being: To beware,

To weigh and measure, and to compare

To win or lose, but never care

REFR

It has been raining,

All through the night

But daylight is breaking

It’s the morning of my life

Lyrics: Lars Göransson

Music: Kée Tengblad

© 2011, Tengblad, Göransson

Bridge

My road it ended, what can I say

All of a sudden, no card to play

And then I finally could really see,

Love is a word spelled simplicity

You may meet trouble, may meet despair

You’ll meet betrayal and you’ll be scared

But there’s a way, that will see you through

Just meet yourself and you’ll start anew

REFR

It has been raining...

You may meet trouble, may meet despair

You’ll meet betrayal and you’ll be scared

But there’s a way, that will see you through

Just meet yourself and you’ll start anew


Tro på mig

Stjärnorna styr ditt liv,

det tror du

En ängel skyddar dig,

här och nu.

Ja du verkar kunna tro

på otroliga ting

– men ingenting

får dig att tro

på det jag vill ge dig

Du tror på mineralers

helande kraft

Och bland kristaller

du smyckar dig med krafs

Din aura lyser klart

men jag kan inte se den

– och ingenting

får dig att tro

på det jag lovar dig

Lyrics & music: Lars Göransson

© 2011, Göransson

Du är så viss och säker

i din tro

Och jag så vilsen och vek

Det verkar bara vara jag

kvar på moder jord

som tror på vanlig, enkel, simpel kärlek....

Du är så viss och säker

i din tro

Och jag så vilsen och vek

Det verkar bara vara jag

kvar på denna jord

som tror på vanlig, enkel, simpel kärlek....

Du tror på healing

och alternativ

Vad är väl Treo

mot indisk terapi

Du verkar tro på allt

som slutar i mystik

Men ingenting

får dig att tro

den kärlek jag ger dig


A Summer Elegy

The tired wizard packs his trunk

Preparing for to leave

But you remain there in your seat

Still eager to be deceived

A silent rain falls when you walk home

You wonder what did go wrong

You say ‘tomorrow’s another day’

But soon your summer’s gone

A lonely hobo wakes up and leaves

After stealing your pearls

You ask for justice in the crowded court

But they just want your purse

Your town is burning with flames of rage

But the firemen just yawn

You hope to leave for a better place

But your summer is almost gone

Lyrics: Lars Göransson

Music: Carl-Johan Melin

© 2011, Melin, Göransson

The dogs of war they praise their actions

And this way make their peace

Your anger makes you heart beat faster

But you’ll soon be at ease

You raise your head, the sun has set

You find yourself alone

The day is gone, are you prepared

Cause now your summer’s gone
