Silence in the City (2017)

LOVE CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEART (M. Brandemark)

Love is a blessing, love is a curse
Love is for better, love is for worse
I’ll be your man, you’ll be my wife
Love can seriously damage your life
 
Up on the roof, down in the hole
Love can seriously damage your soul
Get it together, tear it apart
Love can seriously damage your heart
 
Love is a shelter, love is a jail
Love is divine, love is for sale
Get you addicted, lead you astray
Love can seriously blow you away
 
Calling it precious, selling it cheap
Love can seriously damage your sleep
Living together, still on the roam
Love can seriously mess up your home
 
Love is a blessing, love is a curse
Is it for better or is it for worse?
Make you go crazy, even insane
Love can seriously damage your brain
 
Making a promise, taking a vow
You know the story telling you how
Man loves a woman, boy meets girl
Love can even be the end of your world
Love can even be the end of your world
 

NEON SIGNS (L. Brandemark)

It stings and it burns
The longing for you
My heart is open
Pounding for you
 
Your words are blurring out now
The signal is weak
I’m changing to another station where I can hear you breathe
 
You know what it’s like – living a life we can’t talk about
Doing things we’d only dream about, look out, look out, look out
Neon Signs are longing for sunset
I long for you
 
Closer to sanity than you ever were
Don’t believe all the things you’ve heard
About us, about me
 
You know what it’s like – living a life we can’t talk about
Doing things we’d only dream about, look out, look out, look out
Neon Signs are longing for sunset
I long for you
 

EVERYBODY’S BEEN A FOOL (M. Brandemark)

You’re on the street, you got no money

You got no job, you got no honey
Pick up your guitar and start to play
Everybody just walks away
You lost your woman, you lost your bet
But things will change, so don’t forget
Everybody’s been a fool
Everybody’s been a fool
 
You used to ride a limousine
Got invitations from The Queen
You had a fortune, you had a name
You had no limit to your game
But when it all got out of hand
I guess it made you understand
Everybody’s been a fool
Everybody’s been a fool
 
Some of the lies you have to take
Some mistakes you have to make
Some of the trouble, it’s understood
It will be gone when times are good
So when you think you’re on your own
Don’t forget: you’re not alone
Everybody’s been a fool
Everybody’s been a fool
 

EASIER TO LIE (L. Brandemark)

Spinning wheel goes ’round and ’round
Why can’t I leave the past behind?
I wanna get out, I want out
 
My spinning head goes ’round and ’round
Music’s playing really loud
Time is passing by
 
Now you’re asking me am I ok?
And I hear myself say yes
Why is it easier to lie?
Now you’re asking me am I alright?
And you’ll hear me say I’m fine
Why is it easier to lie?
 
I stayed in this town way too long
My life is like a country song
I wanna get out, I want out
 
There’s no place where I can hide
The more I try to push it down
The harder it comes ’round
 
Now you’re asking me am I ok?
And I hear myself say yes
Why is it easier to lie?
Now you’re asking me am I alright?
And you’ll hear me say I’m fine
Why is it easier to lie?
 

HOLE IN MY SOUL (L. Brandemark)

 I’m going to the market
Gonna get myself a coat
I’m gonna walk around up and down
Just to search my soul
To search my soul
 
I’m going to the harbor
Gonna get myself a boat
I’m gonna head downstream, get away from this scene
Fill the hole in my soul
There’s a hole in my soul
 
So if you see me sleeping with one eye open
If you see me walking by myself
If I seem to reach out for someone
I never do ’cause I got the blues now
 
I’m going to the bar
Gonna get myself a man
Because all the people hanging around
Don’t seem to think that I can
Oh no they don’t think that I can
 
I’m heading for the sky
Going higher than the trees
I’m gonna stay alive with a heart on fire
Fill the hole in my soul
Fill the hole in my soul
 
So if you see me sleeping with one eye open
If you see me walking by myself
If I seem to reach out for someone
I never do ’cause I got the blues now
 

SILVER & GOLD (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

Got a coin of silver and a coin of gold
Gonna keep ’em spinning ’til I go
Hands and feet, heads and tails
Give me luck ’til the morning breaks
 
Keep me coming back for more
Walking down that moonlit mile
Walking side by side with you
 
Got a glass of silver and a glass of gold
Gonna drink them up before I go
Play me something with a soulful sound
Wrap me up and then turn around
 
Keep me coming back for more
Walking down that moonlit mile
Walking side by side with you
 
Got a string of diamonds and a string of pearls
Gonna give them to my Queen of Love
Big Old Dane is telling tales
He won’t quit before he sails away
 
Keep me coming back for more
Walking down that moonlit mile
Walking side by side with you
 

SILENT CITY (L. Brandemark)

Going through the motions
I belong with him
Silence in the city
When I walk with him
 
Passing through the colors
Neon lights blinking
It’s a silent city
When I walk with him
 
Redhead singer singing in the hotel bar
Sitting with my back to you but I know just where you are
The things I see, the things I feel, all took me by surprise
I just want to listen and look into your eyes
I just want to listen and look into your eyes
 
Your friends they keep on calling
My whole world is blind
I let go of all those things
Since we got lost in time
 
And in this silent city
The place that brings me peace
Although my life’s a wreck
Although I just can’t sleep
 
I love it when you talk to me, I love it when you don’t
Concrete, glass, mist, water, wild and strong
The things I see, the things I feel, all took me by surprise
I just want to listen and look into your eyes
I just want to listen and look into your eyes
 
Drinking next to you in a crowded bar
Thinking about just how beautiful you are
The things I see, the things I feel, all took me by surprise
I just want to listen and look into your eyes
I just want to listen and look into your Eyes
 

WE USED TO BE LOVERS (G. Hofverberg)

I saw you out
Talking to some friend of yours
And I could see, you had been crying
 
I could hear
Though I didn’t catch a word
You sounded so tense
I know you that well
 
And I know, your life has taken its toll
And I know, what haunts you at night
So I bought and sent you a flower
All I could do
We used to be lovers
 
I gave you a call
You told me ’bout the things he’d done
You didn’t care
Your love was gone
 
We spoke of the kids
I heard them playing in the yard
And then you said:
I have to endure
 
And I know, your life has taken its toll
And I know, what haunts you at night
So I bought and sent you a flower
All I could do
We used to be lovers
 

CAN’T FIND MY WAY (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

The distant sound of cars through the window
The rattling of those pills on the floor
I can see you talking on your cell phone
On your way down to the local store
 
I close my eyes
I drift away
 
I can’t find my way to your heart anymore
I can’t seem to find the key to your door
Slipping from my hand
I don’t understand
I can’t find my way to your heart anymore
 
All the nights when I was there to hold you
I remember how you’d sometimes disappear
Lost in the Book of Revelation
Acting just like I wasn’t there
 
The moon was out
And you’d drift away
 
I can’t find my way to your heart anymore
I can’t seem to find the key to your door
Slipping from my hand
I don’t understand
I can’t find my way to your heart anymore
 

 WINDOW TO THE SKY (L. Brandemark)

The winds are blowing colder now
The pain has faded out somehow
I never thought that I could cope
 
I took one punch and I took two
Ever since I heard the news
And I realized there was no hope
 
My heart slowed down and misty grey rolled down before my eyes
Lord, open up a window to the sky
Lord, open up a window to the sky
 
I walk down the street and have no clue
As to what the hell happened to you
I never knew what hid behind those eyes
 
Please don’t ask, please don’t tell
Plenty of people go through hell
Couldn’t tell the truth from the lies
 
Looking up at the sunny sky I really want to cry
Lord, open up a window to the sky
Lord, open up a window to the sky
 
Holding hands keep the demons away
Hold my hand and say
Lord, open up a window to the sky
Lord, open up a window to the sky
 

ANGEL (L. Brandemark)

Oh holy night of love
You must be sent from the stars
Oh holy night of love
Are you a gift from the Gods?Angel, come bring me lightOh holy night of faith
Into that sacred place
Oh holy night of faith
I feel your warm embrace

Angel, come bring me light

Oh holy night of truth
I hear no lies from you
Oh holy night of truth
Your spirit shines through

Angel, come bring me light

 

Lighthouse (2014)

PASSING ME BY (L. Brandemark)

Last year’s pain came back again, like a stone, falling on my heart
Last year’s rain, still raining, over me, pouring on my face
 
I just can’t believe that you were able to just walk on by
(Time and time again)
After all the days and nights when you and I were holding each other
(Story of my life, I keep walking on by)
I just can’t believe that you are still able to make me cry
 
How come, you’re passing me by?
How come, you’re passing me by?
 
I still don’t know why I let you go
Letting you down, I threw it all away
I knew I was wrong, soon as you were gone
So I keep looking down, and I keep walking on
 
Most days I am OK, most nights I am doing fine
I am OK now; I am doing fine, most of the time
 
Last year’s pain came back again, like a stone (I still don’t know) falling on my heart (why I let you go)
Last year’s rain, still raining, over me (I knew I was wrong),
pouring on my face (soon as you were gone)
 

AS GOOD AS IT GETS (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

I quiver
I shiver
Skin gets thinner
Eyes grow dimmer
 
And I lose my voice, reset and regret
I’m paralyzed and it’s meaningless
I’m naked
As good as it gets
 
I keep reading the headlines
And it all makes sense
Barcelona, New Hampshire, crashing the gates
No direction, no slamming doors
No remorse
As good as it gets
 
Can’t find the numbers in my head
Can’t find the numbers in my head
 
I’m wasted
Come taste it
Head is spinning
Losers winning
 
I’m drinking my coffee in a funky café
An A&R man is bragging away
I’m naked
As good as it gets
 
Can’t find the numbers in my head …
I’m drinking my coffee in a funky café…
 

DARKNESS (HIDES BEHIND THE SUN) (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

The return of the angels
Behold the sight
Stars in the sky
 
Traffic jam up ahead
Behold the sight
You’d rather go blind
 
Heading home across the river
You don’t really want to go
People on the sidewalk
And everybody knows
 
The darkness hides behind the sun
It’s up to you
 
The square is filled with drummers
Hear the sound
In the heat of the summer
It shakes the ground
 
You’re cleaning all the windows
Burning all the papers
From the past
 
Memories and emotions
Still you have a notion
The first will be the last
 
The darkness hides behind the sun
It’s up to you 
 

STRUCK BY LIGHTNING (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

I remember how you wrote me
’bout the house in the country
Your wife and your children
And the coming of May
Everything was perfect
Everything was silver
Then it all came down
And now it’s all in vain
 
You tell me again and again
You’re stuck here with the pain
Seeking shelter under your umbrella…
 
To be struck by lightning
You have to stand in the rain
From time to time
From time to time
 
You’re the one that’s being hurt
You’ve always been the first to take the blow
After the show
When the lights go down
You say your heart is like an ocean
But no one seems to care what you’re all about
In this lonely town
 
A sinner not a saint
Once a winner, now you ain’t
The Pearly Gate is still at your disposal…
 
To be struck by lightning
You have to stand in the rain
From time to time
From time to time
 

NO U-TURN (M. Brandemark)

I been driving
For a long time
On this road is where I’ve been
I been lowdown
I been lonesome
I been high on gasoline
 
Had all kinds of back seat riders
I been cold and I been burned
On the highway
Where I’m driving
Signs keep saying: No U-turn
 
Road constructions
Engine breakdowns
Speeding tickets
Men at work
I been at the wheel for ages
I been healed and I been hurt
 
Had all kinds of…
 

QUEEN OF HEARTS (L. Brandemark)

Through the narrow lanes, on streets of cobblestone
I’ll be on my way, I rolled the dice and now she’s gone
I’m a gamblin’ man, can’t seem to stop no matter what
I’ll be on my way, I rolled the dice and now she’s gone
 
Black Jack and a riddle, Jack Daniel’s can’t do wrong
The legs of many women kicking to a song
Barroom girls and jokers, I can’t tell who’s who
I’ve been playing that piano for the people passing through
 
Just a deck of cards and a jug of beer and I’m breaking down inside
I did wrong, I sure messed up, I cheated and I lied
There’s a woman lying next to me, and this one ain’t my wife
I’ll be waiting all my life… for the Queen of Hearts
 
I’m staying in a two bedroom apartment downtown
I am hoping that I’ll live to see when she’ll be coming round
I keep playing that piano and throwing that old dice
I’ll be waiting all my life… for the Queen of Hearts
 

INSIDE OUT (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

Deep within my soul
Deep down in my heart
Felt this way before
Been around these parts
Doing what I can
Inside out
 
Didn’t treat you right
Hiding in my room
In the middle of the night
Flowers and perfume
I want to make it up to you
Inside out
 
Friends all gone
Alone in this town
Everything I am
Everything I do
Inside out
 
Done somebody wrong
Broke the golden rule
Wasn’t all that strong
I’ve been such a fool
Inside out
 

TAKE ME BACK (L. Brandemark)

Back in time when time passed slowly, you and I were holding hands
Skipping, running, chasing kisses, hiding in a magic land
 
Back in time when seasons shifted, back in time we planted seed
Summer soon turned into autumn, changing what we used to be
 
Take me back, back when life was easy
Take me back, back when life was good
A summer filled with light, I could breathe easily
No more lonely nights, oh take me back
 
Windy days and stormy nights, we all tried to hold on
Clouds were getting much too heavy and dimmed the sight on everyone
 
It got dark, it got colder, icy silence falling down
All those memories, all those feelings didn’t even make a sound
 
Back in time when time passed slowly, you and I were holding on
No today and no tomorrow, yesterdays have come and gone
 

GOT TO RUN FREE (L. Brandemark)

Red dirt and a bottle of wine
That is all that I’ve left behind
You were long time gone
I know I wasn’t good to you,
I know I wasn’t true to you
And now you’re long time gone
 
Guess I can’t do the things that she’d do
And I can’t be all you need
No I got to run free
 
Dark thoughts and a clear blue sky
I miss you, I won’t lie
But you are long time gone
I guess I wasn’t miserable
I guess I had it all lined up
But you, you weighed me down
 
Red dirt and a bottle of wine
That is all that I’ve left behind
You were long time gone
 

LOVERIDE (M. Brandemark/G. Hofverberg)

Sweet memories are surely made of this
Early morning, I tore the watch off my wrist
The red sun making the windshield glow
Soul music tuned in on the radio
 
I was fighting the blue moon
Looking for the white gold
Oh… doing alright
On a loveride
 
Last exit for a small town fantasy
I picked up a hiker for some company
She jumped in and said: “I’m looking for a place to go,
I been busy killing time the only way I know”
 
She was fighting the blue moon
Looking for the white gold
Ooh… doing alright
On a loveride
 
It’s a strange and blissful painless blue
6 a.m. I finally got home to you
Baby, here I am your own pride and joy
You said: “Where have you been, lover boy?”
 
Well, I’ve been fighting the blue moon
Looking for the white gold
Ooh… doing alright
On a loveride
 

MEMORIES (L. Brandemark)

Heading down south along the river, underneath the summer skies
All my traveling companions, walking close by my side
 
Far along in the distance, hear the sound of ringing bells
One of us will walk a new way, and drink the water of another well
 
All along, all along, looking down the river bend
Memories begin where time ends
You know that memories begin where time ends
 
I pass sycamores and pine trees; they are floating in the breeze
But their trunks stay sturdy, and the roots are strong and deep
 
Goodbye my friend, I hope I’ll see you, far along the river bend
To where you’re going, I surely hope that the music will never end
