Lyrics

Maybe the one

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk 

Maybe he could have been the one
If his arms had been more strong
And not just strong enough to hold me for one night
But my life had just begun
I was not looking for the one
And when I did I realized that he was gone

Maybe he should have been the one
Maybe it’s just that it’s been so long
That I can’t remember what went wrong
But my life had just begun
I was not looking for the one
And when I did I realized that he was gone

We all find comfort (evt oktavstemme)
In whatever is around
And why are we still searching
When it feels like we’ve been found? (2.gang: when it feels like we’ve been found?)

Maybe he could have been the one
If his arms had been more strong
And not just strong enough to hold me for one night
Maybe he could have saved my life
Just by looking into my eyes
You’ll never know unless you get to do things twice

We all find comfort …

Different phases

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

No one ever told us what to do
About the different phases love goes through
we would not have listened anyway
to what anybody had to say

Now we sure could use some good advice
another point of view – a new pair of eyes
or someone who could see it wrong from right
or help us do the things we haven’t tried

And it takes some patience – these phases of love
There’s no use in wasting our time anymore
so since we’ve made this vow
let’s go on anyhow

I believe that we can make it through
it’s just another chance for me and you
for staying in the present – leaving the past
who said it was meant to happen fast?

‘cause it takes some patience – these phases we go through
I’m not afraid of facing this challenge with you
Yes, it takes some patience – living as two
But I don’t mind waiting – waiting with you
We’ll try to wait as one – for our time to come

Forwards and backwards

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Now there’s me and there’s you trying to make ends meet
seems like we are stranded in a dead end street
With nothing to do – more or less
I keep my mind open – there is always a way to say yes.

Was never easy for me to say no
That’s why I tend to go with the flow
With ups and downs and roads to nowhere
It’s starting to be a turbulent affair

Forwards and backwards – spinning around
Moving in circles – I’m more lost than found
Backwards and forwards it goes
Where I am bound – only destiny knows

There are so many things that I would like to do
I still dream about sharing it with you
but now is a turbulent time
wish I could skip forward or press rewind

Forwards and backwards – just somewhere to go
Spinning in circles – move fast or go slow
Backwards and forwards it goes
Where I will end up – well nobody knows

Forwards and backwards – turning upside down
Moving in circles – I’m more lost than found
Backwards and forwards it goes
Where I am bound – only destiny knows

Good to see you

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Good to see you – so good to see you

I count the days – I count the moments too
It makes me feel like I’m closer to you
And in between I sit and dream
about your sweet face
I wish it was Sunday every day

Good to see you – so good to see you

I count the days – I count the moments too
It makes me think that I’ve become addicted to you
The only thing that keeps me going
Is the thought of having you near
I’ve been longing to whisper in your ear (that it is)

Good to see you – so good to see you

You enter the room with a Summer breeze
So familiar and so sweet to me
Soft embraces – your lips are meeting mine
I’ve been missing this for such a long time

Good to see you – so good to see you

Restless

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Tossing and turning in bed at night
Trying to make sense of it all
She is calmly sleeping right by his side
Makes him feel lonely and small

They used to share almost everything
Even with no words to say
Now he is longing to find out what’s happening
Instead of pushing her away

He can’t seem to find no peace beside her
He is restless as a tiger
Restless as a tiger in a cage
He doesn’t know what’s going on inside her
Makes him restless as a tiger

Restless, restless – yeah

Wondering if she can be unaware
Of what has been going on for a while
The silence between them is all they share
A distance of more than a smile

He can’t seem to find no peace beside her…

Day break – he’s still awake
It’s more than he can take
He could really use some sleep
He want’s to wake her and shake her
And find a way to make their relation grow warm and deep

He can’t seem to find no peace beside her…

Eye to eye

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Here’s the situation
I lost something on the way
And I can’t seem to find it now

It’s time for confrontation
I ‘m gonna have to try remembering
And deal with it somehow

I used to say
I was not brave

Now I’m meeting eye to eye
All the things that made me cry
Now we’re standing face to face
And everything falls back in place

It’s much too easy to forget
About the things that you regret
And idealize them instead

But even though you think they’re gone
All the things you’ve said or done
Have build the person you’ve become

I wouldn’t see It’s part of me

Now I’m meeting eye to eye…

I am sorry

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Oh, what a day this has been
Me and my baby had a quarrel last night
And all day through it’s been hanging ‘round my mind
I can’t seem to shake it although I’ve tried

Thinking it over again
It’s hard to remember what was actually said
And all of these questions are left in my head
Now it’s easy to know what I should have done instead

It feels like I’ve stepped on the new fallen snow (lange toner)
It feels like I’ve broken a flower that’d just started to grow
Tell me how to put it all back together again?
And how to paint the cloudy sky blue?
And how to say – “I’m sorry “ – to you?

Oh, what a fool I have been
Hurting my baby in a heartless way
And all my bad conscience wont go away
I need you to hold me and say – “It’s okay”.

It feels like I’ve stepped on the new fallen snow…

Beautiful Blue

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Blue is my favourite colour
you are my faithfull friend
Oh, it is the end of Summer
And it is hard to comprehend

Bright as the morning sunrise
blue as the sky over town
look how your lips change colour
as your body is cooling down

Blue

True as my blue-eyed child
Blue as my aching toe
brusies on both his knees
and I’ve got to let him go

Blue

Beautiful blue
as the veins ‘neath your pale skin
You an electric wave
of the sea I’m diving in

Down to earth

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

Let’s bring it down to earth where it belongs
Don’t let it take up space between us
It’s just a fight on words Who’s right or wrong
There’s nothing left now to discuss

We have had this talk before
But still we don’t agree
Can’t find head or tail no more
Why can’t we leave it be?

Maybe it’s a waste of time
Knowing who we are
We’re crossing the line
Don’t let it come this far

Let’s bring it down to earth …

We’re sitting at the same café
Tangled up in words
Is this the way we want to stay?
Let’s bring it down to earth

Down to earth where it belongs…

And it seems like every word we say is getting in the way
If there was any meaning left I think it’s gone
You say your head is spinning and you don’t know what to say
When I just go on and on and on and on and on!

Let’s bring it down to earth..
Don’t let it take up space in your head

Let’s bring it down to earth…
I can’t remember what’s been said!

Quiet house

Music and lyrics by Kirstine Birk

The house is quiet now
and though I’m tired
how am I supposed to go to sleep?
This is my time now
time to find my inner voice
and allow it to speak

Filling up my space
Everything that happened and took place
throughout these past few days
needs reflection

Telling time to stop
hoping that nobody will get up – too early
I’m filling up my cup of inspiration
in the dark and quiet house of concentration

Everyone’s in bed
but I’ve got too much
going on inside my head for me to rest
Soon’s another day
with a different way for me
to try and do what’s best

Filling up my space
Everything that happened and took place
throughout these past few days
needs reflection

Telling time to stop
Quietly so no one will wake up – too early
I’m filling up my cup of inspiration
in the dark and quiet house of concentration

In the quiet – all my hopes are coming clear
In the quiet – I can sense that you are near
In the quiet – there’s a certain atmosphere
Peace and quiet – everything I need is here

Telling time to stop
at this time of year the sun will not come up – this early
Now I have filled my cup of inspiration
in the dark and quiet house of concentration

The house is quiet – and I am tired
