Let The Dog Drive Home

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    We are strangers
    Sitting on a wall
    Wonderin’ how far is the fall
    Silent conversation, I hear every word you say
    You can’t live without the shadow of doubt
    It’s out of my control
    Let the dog drive home

    Changes happening so fast
    We got to find a way to make this last
    Please don’t change the subject
    I’m still listening to you
    Even the leader of the band isn’t really in command
    It’s out of my control
    Let the dog drive home

    When you don’t know where you’re going
    You know how to get there
    And even in your darkest hour there is a voice you hear
    Letting go don’t mean you don’t care
    It’s out of my control
    Let the dog drive home

    It’s out of my control
    Let the dog drive home

    It’s out of my control
    Let the dog drive home

    Last time we met
    It looked like a long lost friend
    Last time we met
    We were younger then

    I don’t live on Waverly
    I don’t wonder if you think of me
    Here we are
    Look how far we’ve come
    And gone
    I feel I know you better
    I know you better

    Last time we met
    You were in love with New York City
    Last time we met
    I was poor and you were pretty

    I don’t ride the AC
    I don’t see your face in crowded streets
    Here we are
    Look how far we’ve come
    And gone
    I feel I know you better
    I know you better

    It’s been far too long
    Far too long
    Far too long
    Far too long
    Far too long
    Far too long
    Far too long
    Far too long

    Last time we met
    I had you in my heart
    Let’s not forget to be young again

    I don’t live on Waverly
    I don’t wonder if you think of me
    Here we are
    Look how far we’ve come
    And gone
    I feel I know you better
    I know you better

    Halfway Between

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    Been driving through the night
    Running traffic lights
    Trying to get to the city
    Something’s in my way
    It’s only pride you say
    It’s much more than this already

    Coming home to make you see
    Take a seat and wait for me
    Somewhere halfway between
    That’s where we like to go
    The answers we will know
    Somewhere halfway between

    Made one promise I will keep
    That’s all one really needs
    Won’t tell you a thousand big words
    To fade away like billboards
    Guess I’ve really said enough
    Don’t want to sell away our love
    There is a better way
    I’m sure we can afford

    Coming home to make you see
    Take a seat and wait for me
    Somewhere halfway between
    That’s where we like to go
    The answers we will know
    Somewhere halfway between

    Patience cannot hurt you they say it is a virtue
    The waiting makes you stronger
    You won’t be waiting too much longer

    Coming home to make you see
    Take a seat and wait for me
    Somewhere halfway between
    That’s where we like to go
    The answers we will know
    Somewhere halfway between

    Great balls of fire

    Orð og lag: Jerry Lee Lewis

    You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
    Too much love drives a man insane
    You broke my will, oh what a thrill
    Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

    I pull my fingers and twiddle my thumbs
    I’m real nervous, but it sure is fun
    C’mon, c’mon baby, you drive me crazy
    Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

    Kiss me baby! Oh it feels good
    Hold me baby! I wanna love you like a lover should

    You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
    Too much love drives a man insane
    You broke my will, oh what a thrill
    Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

    You never leave L.A.

    I boarded the plane, thought I’d said all my goodbyes
    Been no regrets, only sorry how time flies
    A man next to me, says the city is so shallow
    Me I’m looking down, I see a city full of souls

    And I can hardly wait
    To see those lights again
    A part of me remains
    I’m forever changed
    You’re always almost there
    It’s a love and hate affair
    I believe them when they say
    You never leave LA

    I retraced the steps, of all the stars on the boulevard
    No one thinks about, what it took to get that far
    Others who have tried, they were only left there hanging
    And all those broken dreams, could have filled up Laurel Canyon

    These California skies
    Put fire in my eyes
    And I could drive for miles
    With the ocean by my side
    You’re always almost there
    It’s a love and hate affair
    I believe them when they say
    You never leave LA

    39000 feet, high above the ground
    If I were in the driving seat
    I could have turned this plane around

    And I can’t hardly wait
    To see those lights again
    A part of me remains
    I’m forever changed
    You’re always almost there
    It’s a love and hate affair
    I believe them when they say
    You never leave LA

    Big questions need small answers like yes and no,
    Yes and no.

    And Betty Hedges big decisions pave the way
    Betty Hedges, all is trying to keep me away
    Big questions need small answers like yes and no,

    Gonna leave it up to you, uhhuu,

    Mother nature hold me,
    talk me off the ledge
    I was raised to believe in
    what the good book says

    And sometimes i’m confused
    and I don’t know what to say
    Maybe what I’m meant to do
    is reach out and pray

    God, I have so many things to tell you
    I know you’ll understand

    The strength to surrender
    brings sweet relief
    I’m stronging off to let go
    if you’re ready to

    I know that there’s a heaven
    beyond what I can see
    I’m not asking for salvation
    cause I already believe

    God, I have so many things to tell you
    I know you’ll understand
    I’ve been cynical,
    I’ve been pointing fingers
    left and right,
    throw me a line
    and save this drowning man

    God, I have so many things to tell you
    and God, I have so many things to tell you
    I know you’ll understand

    Freight Train

    I was born my parents sun
    From my first breath I was the one
    Expected to hang on the moon

    I learned to walk in my fathers shoes
    I loved my mother like good boys do
    I never rolled …a freight train

    I Scot the wind and gold for my home teen
    I made and meet the great university
    I home might hang on the poem om wall

    I signed on to be a company man
    It was all part of the master plan
    I never rolled a freight train
    I never saw the stars on Hollywood and vine

    I never kissed the wrong girl
    I never got drunk in spain
    No I never rolled a freight train

    I fell in love with a debutant
    I gave her a ring in a restaurant
    I bought us a home in the right part of town

    We had a sun he looked up to me
    I said I love you but promise me you’ll never say
    I never rolled a freight train
    I never saw the start on hollywood and vine

    I never kissed the wrong girl at the right time
    I never got high in Spain
    No i never rolled i never rolled
    A freight train.

    I don’t know you very well
    I’ll be the first to admit
    I don’t recall the situation
    I just remember what i felt

    All you do is make feel good
    In a way i’ve never felt before
    Now I can’t stop thinking of you
    I have a funny feeling
    that you feel the same way too

    Is almost too good to be true
    I can’t believe all this happening
    It’s only making sense inside me
    and I don’t know what to make of it

    All you do is make me feel good
    In a way I’ve never felt before
    Now I can’t stop thinking of you
    Yeah you do something to me
    I’ve actually been singing in the rain

    You should have seen us

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    You never liked dark limousines,
    Sunday mornings or crowded scenes.
    I fell in line between the roses beyond silent gates,
    it’s like you to be late.
    The chill of winter digs deep within,
    you would have spared us the violines.
    A trail of people from wayward places gather close,
    steal the air, because you were there.

    You should have seen us,
    there was laughter in every tear.
    You should have seen us.
    Let the stories be told,
    you would have loved to be this loved.

    One family member started to sing.
    Soon all others joined in.
    A song you sang when you were down about holding up the ground,
    giving in to the sound of life!
