Meet me on the other side...

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
See you on the other side...

Honey now if I'm honest
I still don't know what love is
Another mirage folds
into the haze of time recalled
And now the floodgates cannot hold
All my sorrow all my rage
A tear that falls on every page...

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
Maybe I oughta mention
Was never my intention
To harm you or your kin
Are you so scared to look within
The ghosts are crawling on our skin
We may race and we may run
We'll not undo what has been done
Or change the moment when it's gone...

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side..

I know it would be outrageous
To come on all courageous
And offer you my hand
To pull you up on to dry land
When all I got is sinking sand
That trick ain't worth the time it buys
I'm sick of hearing my own lies
And love's a raven when it flies....

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
See you on the other side...

Honey now if I'm honest
I still don't know what love is....

All is in the mist..

so quiet and apart..
standing alone covered by the mist of a morning..
years go by..life goes in circles..like a never-ending ride on a roller-coaster... 
numbness takes over..
you don't want to feel pain so you cover yourself with life without feelings..

like a mist..all is in the same tone and your past is somewhere behind, covered, faded, blurred..
you wonder..maybe that pain was better..made you feel alive..gave you little heart bits..

maybe not..

but what now..
all is in the same tone..
all is just covering your present with the soft neutral tones ...
fear takes over..and you are in the middle..
afraid to look back..afraid to step forward...
trapped in the abyss of nothingness..
with not clear view of horizon..

you can't ignore that feeling inside..
you know you survived..
you know the pain is almost all gone..
you know that now you need someone to share your victory with..

but ..all is in the same tone..
all is in the mist..
and you don't see the horizon..
you are lost.

Carry me awry...








The sun is old on water
Yearling flakes keep whirling by
"Carry me awry"

Collapsing breaths discover
Turning hope, new-boarded highs
Receding howls dew the skies

Closing eyes recover
Amber light in wintry bed
"Can you pull me under the cold, charred sea?"

Whispered words of summer
Fallen ode, a bawling bless,
Serenades the water and carries me anew.

In softest air, a stutter
steers the heart away from the bane,
leaves the lasting sorrow and carries me anew.

by Ólafur Arnalds





We said goodbye


hello my love

it's getting cold on this island
i'm sad alone
i'm so sad on my own
the truth is
that we were much too young
and now I'm looking for you
or anyone like you



we said goodbye
with a smile on our faces
now you're alone
you're so sad on your own
the truth is
that we run out of time
and now youre looking for me
or anyone like me...
