Lyrics

Full moon on Friday

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Meet me at the square
Just around midnight
I’ll promise to be there
Waiting in the moonlight

With these words in my head
I was led by circumstance
I knew I would regret
If I didn’t grab this chance

There’s gonna be a full moon on Friday
So I won’t get no sleep
We might as well stay out all night long
Full moon on Friday
Almost makes me weep
You know you can find me in the pale light
Under the moon

All around the square
Lit up by the silver moon
There’s magic in the air
And anything can happen soon

My feet just brought me here
I was led by curiosity
A certain atmosphere
Has taken over dangerously

There’s gonna be a full moon on Friday
So I won’t get no sleep
We might as well stay out all night long
Full moon on Friday
Almost makes me weep
You know you can find me in the pale light
Under the moon

Month by month goes by
Before I bid you farewell
Never found out why
I was captured under your spell

Every time it’s there
There’s one thing I must confess
I go back to that square
Where the moon is in its starlightdress

There’s gonna be a full moon on Friday
So I won’t get no sleep
We might as well stay out all night long

Full moon on Friday
Almost makes me weep
You know you can find me in the pale light
Under the moon

Growing Old

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

All the wrinkles on your face
Are a roadmap showing where you’ve been
And there will always be a trace
For my restless fingers on your skin

I don’t mind growing old
If growing old just means
There are more stories to be told
I’ll spend more time listening to
The magic silence between
Two who’ve lived enough to know
That even when you’re old you grow

The valleys underneath your eyes
Carved by every kind of tear you’ve cried
They’re the ones that made you wise
About everything in life – you say

I don’t mind growing old
If growing old just means
There are more stories to be told
I’ll spend more time listening to
The magic silence between
Two who’ve lived enough to know
That even when you’re old you grow

You’re telling me there ain’t no use
In always fighting for an endless youth
I hope you’re honest when you say
You’ll still love me when my hair turns grey

I don’t mind growing old
If growing old just means
There are more stories to be told
I’ll spend more time listening to
The magic silence between
Two who’ve lived enough to know
That even when you’re old you grow

On a day like this

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

I’ll fly away with you
On a day like this
High in the sky so blue
On a day like this

And I’ll take you any place
That you would like to see
And we can be everything
We’d like to be

So come fly away with me
On a day like this

Stay on a cloud with me
On a day like this
Here is where I long to be
On a day like this

And we’re carried by the air
A warm summer breeze
And time won’t go anywhere
Stay here with me

And live for the moment too
On a day like this

All over again

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

I don’t wanna make the same mistakes
I don’t wanna make the same mistakes all over again

I’ve learned a lot of things from life
Which feels like one big exercise
Still so many things I haven’t tried
I’ve made some choices – right or wrong
What didn’t kill me made me strong
Several times I wasn’t sure if I’d died

There is always fear of failing
There is a sweet scent to success
But if your fear is too prevailing
You will end up gaining less
(By saying)

I don’t wanna make the same mistakes all over again
This is what I’m saying to myself
Over and over again
I don’t wanna make the same mistakes all over again

I’ve drawn a pattern with my toes
Which I’m bound to follow, I suppose
If there is a thing called destiny
And though it can be hard to change
I still would like to rearrange
Some habits and to set my pity free

It takes a certain motivation
But you better get in shape
‘Cos to change your situation
You’ve got to even change the tape

(By Playing…)

I don’t wanna make the same mistakes all over again
This is what I’m saying to myself
Over and over again
I don’t wanna make the same mistakes all over again

Though I don’t know
How it will go

I don’t wanna make the same mistakes

New Century

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

We are in a hurry
To catch the bus in time
On our way to celebrate the next century

Stumbling over the last minutes
Doesn’t leave us time to think
About what we are leaving behind

We don’t need no firecrackers
We just wish upon a star
I’ve got bobbles of champagne in my blood

Now we are waiting at this buss stop
It’s New Years Eve
Nineteen hundred-and-a-thousand years

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop
Between one century and the next one

Gee, it’s past midnight
The world doesn’t seem to change
There’s still the same pale light from the lamppost

We didn’t catch the bus in time
The evening will just fizzle out like a damp squib
We don’t need no count down for the beginning of a new time

We don’t need no fireworks
My lips are burning just for you
And this silence is telling me we are the only ones around

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop
Between one century and the next one

Too many secrets

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

You’ve come to see me one last time
The word is out there’ll be no happy ending

We’re holding on for a little while
But we both know there’s no use in pretending anymore

Too many secrets
are all that we share – yeah, yeah
Nothing but too many secrets
To share

We never planned it anyhow
It started out so light with stolen glances
A love that’s rented by the hour
I guess that’s all that our romance is going to be

Too many secrets
are all that we share – yeah, yeah
Got nothing but too many secrets
To share

And I don’t know if I’ll see you again
What if I had known this back then?
But you don’t know what it’s like until you taste it
a moment enjoyed is never wasted

Too many secrets
are all that we share – yeah, yeah
Nothing but too many secrets
To share

Fruits of the sea

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Dive into the sea with me
I know down there somewhere
There’s a hidden Paradise
Like some forgotten treasure
No one’s ever found before

Feed me with the fruits of the sea
The salty taste of a kiss
And bubbles tempt my appetite
Just like a soft embrace
I’ll let the water comfort thee

Across the seven seas
That’s how far I know you will swim for me
Deep down to the bottom of the sea
That’s where I’ll go with you
If you want me to

So drown with me – make the sounds go away
Down under seas we’ll stay
Until one day
We’ll be born again
As Fruits of the Sea
That’s what we’ll be

Fruits of the Sea…

Meet me here

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

The train has stopped between two different stations
They say it has trouble changing gears
I think of us heading in different directions
The distance growing through the years

I think we know that little by little
We’re gonna have to work on our fears
I’ve given up on anymore explanations
I hope you will lend me your ears

Why don’t you come and meet me here?
‘Cos I no longer know where you are
Why don’t you come and meet me here?
’cos you’ve already gone much too far
Why don’t you come and meet me here?
Why don’t you come and meet me here?

I let you go just to make sure I’d keep you
You always needed even more space
Now let me know shall I tie you or free you?
It’s hard to keep up with your pace

We’re past the point of trying to tie ends together
This feeling is much to strong to erase
Too many things we can blame on each other
This time we’re meeting face to face

Why don’t you come and meet me here?
‘Cos I no longer know where you are
Why don’t you come and meet me here?
’cos you’ve already gone much too far
Why don’t you come and meet me here?
Why don’t you come and meet me here?

You said you needed your elbowroom back
Didn’t want to be a part of this game
We’re moving on a one-way-track
Would you hear if I called out your name?
(or whispered…)

Why don’t you come and meet me here?
‘Cos I no longer know where you are
Why don’t you come and meet me here?
’cos you’ve already gone much too far
Why don’t you come and meet me here?
Why don’t you come and meet me here?

Section
We can go everywhere

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

I don’t know if this will last forever
I can only say I hope we do
There are so many things to do together
And I’m longing to

But what’s the use in setting up directions
Instead of taking things the way they come
Our plans may end up being our own restrictions
Let them come along

And we can go on from there
We can go everywhere
No use in pushing things ahead
Let’s reach for them instead
We can go on from there
And some day
We may find our own perfect way

If the two of us end up together
I can only say I wouldn’t mind
But every time I hear the word forever
I go deaf and blind

There are so many rules you can follow
And no one knows exactly how it’s done
I can promise you until tomorrow
You will be the one

And we can go on from there
We can go everywhere
No use in pushing things ahead
Let’s reach for them instead
We can go on from there
And some day
We may find our own way

And we can go on from there
We can go everywhere
No use in pushing things ahead
Let’s reach for them instead
We can go on from there
But today
Don’t let anything get in our way

Ordinary

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

All the coloured magazines
Models dressed like dream-machines
Ain’t got no worries so it seems
Why am I …

Looking like the “girl-next-door”?
Dreaming of a little more
Than to get a job from eight to four p.m.

I wish I could be
Less ordinary

Talking to a friend of mine
Surely of the restless kind
He’s scared to think one day he’ll find
He’s hooked on simple life

But there’s one thing he forgot about
You cannot live your life in doubt
What you are depends on how proud it makes you feel

I wish I could be
Less ordinary

I wanna follow my dreams
But I don’t go to extremes
It leaves me somewhere in between

Call me helplessly naive
But I’m sure that I’ll achieve
Must of the things I believe in
Through a simple way of living

I wish I could be
Less ordinary
I wish I could be
Extraordinary

Long to Be

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

I am always longing to be somebody else
A perfect picture in my head tells me I have failed again
I am always looking for a place to call my own
So meet me in the space between the known and the unknown

Come on let me show you who I am
Come closer and let me show you who I am
Come on let me show you who I am
And who I long to be
I long to be me

It’s harder to convince myself than please anybody else
A minor disapproval turns my certainty to compromise
But in between the searching and the running around for help
I lose the most important thing – I’m losing myself

Come on let me show you who I am
Come closer and let me show you who I am
Come on let me show you who I am
And who I long to be
I long to be me

I hold a passion deep inside like a lion in a cage
It walks in restless circles and it waits for me to make my move
My mind holds back the power like a master does a slave
I wonder what would happen if one day he got away…

Come on let me show you who I am
Come closer and let me show you who I am
Come on let me show you who I am
And who I long to be

I long to be me

I’ll make it easy

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

I’ll make it easy for you to leave me
I’ll make it easy for you to go
I’ll make sure that you’ll never know
What you are letting go
So when words are few…

I’ll make it easy for you to believe me
It’ll be an easy promise to keep
I’ll make sure you won’t cut that deep
And you won’t hear me weep
When I’m hard to find
I’ll be on your mind

I’ll make it easy for you to leave me
I’ll make it easy for you to go
I’ll make sure that you’ll never know
What you are letting go
So when words are few
Go look for someone new

You know the grass is always greener
On the other side
You’ll never know what you can get
Until you put your pride aside
The chance of getting deeper
Is lying before you
If you’re giving it a try
I won’t be asking you why

I’ll make it easy for you to find me
I’ll make it easy for you to stay
I’ll make sure there’s always a way
For you to get away
Just to hear you say
You’ll be back one day!
