logo_blank01Horse Heart (lyrics by Lisa Isaksson)

Open Lyrics

Past the pine woods, after dark,

sings a lonely meadowlark

of horse hearts racing through the sky

in a line like flying geese

Black courser lift your head up high

feel the time is drawing nigh

when meadowlark has sung to end,

you‘ll run will make amend


Let your heart pound loud and clear,

to let them know you are drawing near

No need to ponder on the way,

your feet won´t stumble they won’t stay


First goes your kin, the goat,

carrying the earth

Then go you, courser,

with heaven tight to your girth

Then come the poets and the singers side by side

Be calm, courser,

you will soon be untied

logo_blank01Cream Sky (lyrics by Colin Somerwell)

Open Lyrics

There’s a little house

Of bright days

I live in this house

From time to time

logo_blank01Spiraling (lyrics by Andria Degens)

Open Lyrics

i go down, down to the river,

i go down, down to the river,

down to the edge, of the waters

flowing, flowing,flowing to the oceans


I stand still in time


wide open sky above the trees,

stars shining so  brightly

now I see


there you are, in your skin standing in the water

never thought I’d see you again,

never thought I’d see you again


shining eyes ,

glowing in the darkness,

you kiss my hand,

and in your arms I am,

perfectly adored

we’re spiralling , we’re spiralling

soaring to the  centre  of  all

galaxies, and stars and other worlds

logo_blank01See You In Me (lyrics by Andria Degens)

Open Lyrics

I love you

You help me see

See you in me


You are my mother

You are my father

You are my lover

My best friend


You are the River

And the Mountains

And the Sky

And the Sea


You are the River

And the Mountains

You are the Sky

And the Sea

logo_blank01Through Your Woods (lyrics by Lisa Isaksson)

Open Lyrics

Let me wander in reverb through your woods let me wander in reverb between these trees all the tracks they join together all the tracks they lead away Let me fill these quiet woods with some humming

let´s pretend it is the birds that flew away

all the trees are naked silver

all the paths are paved with leaves in these woods no path has no ending

in these woods no path has no start

all the meadows lay in fallow

all the grass becomes trees

logo_blank01Water (lyrics by Akis Boyatzis)

Open Lyrics

Staring at my angel’s shadow fly

I got mistaken for a stranger from the Northern skies

Seeing my sister deep below

The air is cold while the water flows

Waving at your remembrance long goodbye

Waving at your remembrance long goodbyes

And when the water is melancholic

And my breathing’ s alcoholic

That’s when I climb the ladder to the stars

And if the water flows to nothing

If the show leads to laughing

It’s when you say at least we could try

We could try

We could try

logo_blank01From Here (lyrics by Lisa Isaksson)

Open Lyrics

Härifrån, äger vi held världen/from here, we own the whole world


allt är vårt tills vi kommer dit/everything is ours until we get there


bränner solen gräset vitt/if the sun burns the grass white


reser vi för allt är ditt/then we go cause all is yours


härifrån/From here


  Härdifrån, känns allt som en film/from here, everything feels like a movie


en kvarglömd sko visar vart vi ska/a shoe someone forgot shows us where we´re going


allt passerar oss förbi/everything passes us by


kommer molnen reset vi/if the clouds come, then we leave


härfrån/from here

logo_blank01Our Waves (lyrics by Eleni Adamopoulou)

Open Lyrics

Se closed her eyes

She woke up in a dream

She did not know where to go, which way

She walked up

By the Sea

She watched the waves dancing

Like ballerines

She became one of them

One of us?


Can she go back?

No, she must stay here forever

Cause in this place

We are all made of Dreams

And we don’t want to go back

Only here

We can listen to Our Waves

Can I Dance?
