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

    To meet you

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    It’s five miles till I see my lover
    I guess you could say that she’s more than that
    I’ve been sat in this seat now for hours
    Reading my book like a map

    Yeah these windows are crying
    And this train is dying
    To meet you

    This train is filled with emotions
    They all make me think about you
    When we pass these old desert stations
    I want to go there with you

    It’s four miles and counting
    And my hands are shouting to meet you

    To meet you is fine
    For i know you’re all mine
    Waiting is nice, i can think of her eyes
    These tracks can lead
    Just to one place
    And your face
    That i kiss and embrace when I meet you

    I’m wondering if you will ever come with me
    And we can play husband and wife
    We could waltz around this globe and its mystery
    Then rest till the end of our lives

    Yeah its 2 miles and closing
    And i’m overdosing on you

    Dah da doo….to meet you
    Dah da doo…to meet you

    Yeah these windows are crying
    And this train is dying to meet you

    Shade of a shadow

    Can I call you if I’m back in town?
    Leave a message when I’m southbound?
    Could I please, could I please?
    Won’t be long till I’ll be passing through,
    Maybe three days, maybe two.

    Could I see you one more time, if its ok if you don’t mind?
    I’m the shade of a shadow, baby.
    Been thinkin’ bout you tonight, how sweetly you bring light.
    You’re the ray of the sun, and I’m the shade of a shadow.

    Of all the letters I never sent and all the time we haven’t spent,
    Could I please, could I please?
    You always said I play games I know I’d lose,
    You always said that’s the life I’d choose.

    Could I see you one more time if it’s ok if you don’t mind?
    I’m the shade of a shadow, baby.
    Been thinkin bout you tonight, how sweetly you bring light.
    You’re the ray of the sun, I’m the shade of a shadow.

    [repeat]

    Can I call you if I’m back in town?
    Leave a message when I’m southbound?
    Could I please, could I please?
    Could I please you?

    Amanda’s dream

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    Can you say goodbye, without ever leaving?
    That’s some sad soul to keep
    Amanda awakes in a moment believing
    She’s better off staying asleep
    So she drives by the station
    Imaginin’ somewhere
    Sings a slow slow song

    Now she’s waiting at the stoplights
    With no where to go
    But in our town there’s just one stoplight
    Oh I wish she would know
    There’s a world outside her window
    Anywhere the wind blows
    Anywhere’s Amanda’s dream

    She sits late at night by the light of a candle
    Her wishes that never come true
    Her hope gets so high they’re too hard to handle
    She stares as they fade out of view
    And these song words have led her to nowhere
    Cept a slow slow song

    Now she’s waiting at the stoplights
    With no where to go
    But in our town there’s just one stoplight
    Oh I wish she would know
    There’s a world outside her window
    Anywhere the wind blows
    Anywhere’s Amanda’s dream

    Well she sleeps like a girl
    But she wakes like a woman
    She sleeps like a girl
    But she wakes like a woman
    Like a woman

    Waitin at the stoplights with nowhere to go
    But in our town there’s just one stoplight
    I wish she would know
    There’s a world outside her window
    Anywhere the wind blows
    Anywhere’s Amanda’s dream.

    Let’s go dancing

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    Our minds run in circles
    Racing around the resturant
    They are searching for what more to say
    To say what we realy want

    Lets leave it like it is
    And stop stearing at theese walls
    Lets not go headlong to that distance
    Where you cant come back at all

    Lets go dancing
    Waltz around the rumor mill
    In your faded dress with daphodills
    Lets go dancing,
    Let time stand still

    Once your name was but a wisper
    A simple wish upon that tongue
    And staring at your shadow is like staring at the sun
    And in this dark dark hour, you still illuminate a room.
    Oh God give the power, we got to keep ourselves in tune

    Lets go dancing,
    Waltz around the rumor mill
    In your faded dress with daphodills
    Lets go dancing,
    Let time stand still

    Rough around the edges

    Orð og lag: Teitur Lassen

    I’m lost in my head, been thinking all around
    I’ve gotta find the off ramp to my heart.
    Stop lights in a row, when all I want is go
    Drop it into first and I’ll get home.

    Its ok I’m alright
    I’m just a little rough around the edges of this life.
    Play it cool, you can always follow
    Bread crumbs in a line when you are lost.

    Little little seeds grew into troubled trees
    A sorry sorry sight between my ears.
    I need to settle down and eat my troubled fruit
    The sweetness of the taste will do me good.

    Its ok I’m alright
    I’m just a little rough around the edges of this life.
    Play it cool you can always follow
    Bread crumbs in a line when you are lost.

    Well the corners of my frown have slowly turned around
    No more upside down, no more upside down.
    They’ve slowly turned around, they’ve slowly slowly turned around

    Its ok I’m alright
    I’m just a little rough around the edges of this life.
    Play it cool you can always follow
    Bread crumbs in a line when you are lost.

    One and only

    I’ve been wishing on a star but I never could have imagined
    I would land just where you are after all this lonesome travelling
    Took one look in your eye, reached out to hold your hand
    This is when I realized what I could never understand

    Do you want to be my one and only love?
    Do you want to be my one and only love?

    So you wanna be my friend, so you wanna be my lover
    With you I do confess I can’t be one without the other
    That was hard for me to say, I hope I said it right
    Which ever, come what may, you see I need to know tonight

    Do you want to be my one and only love?
    Do you want to be my one and only love?

    Do you want to play these cards, do you want to lay them down?
    Do you want to run away or do you want to stick around?

    Do you want to be my one and only love?
    Do you want to be my one and only love?

    Josephine

    Dreamt I was back with the pirates and cats of my sommerville
    The girl in the alphabet shirt covered in dirt lives on the hill

    Well, my sweet Josephine,
    Are you still racing stray dogs
    Across the old stream?
    My neighborhood queen,
    Are you still kissing cowboys that cry, Josephine?

    She stole, my grandmother’s watch, a treasure to touch
    To keep time to herself
    Her mind, was a very big house, we got lost there for hours
    Until August fell.

    Well, my sweet Josephine
    Are you still racing stray dogs
    Across the old stream?
    My neighborhood queen,
    Are you still kissing cowboys that cry, Josephine?

    You say you’re alright, but Josie it’s time
    You gotta get your feet on the ground
    But she says: “No, don’t you see we have wings?
    It’s the funniest thing, it’s just that no one knows.”
    No one knows, sweet Josephine…

    Well, my sweet Josephine
    Are you still racing stray dogs
    Across the old stream?
    My neighborhood queen,
    Are you still kissing cowboys that cry, Josephine?

    My neighborhood queen,
    Are you still kissing cowboys that cry, Josephine?

    Poetry & aeroplanes

    There was a party last night, last night
    Cigarettes and empty bottles, empty bottles
    Better open up this window, this window
    Need some air to clear my head, clear my head

    Alone in these strange beds
    I think that I’ve travelled enough
    Poetry and aeroplanes
    I am tired of waiting for love

    Tend to fall asleep in the fast lane, in the fast lane
    Sometimes sinking low in the high life, in the high life
    No more happy songs of heartbreak, oh’ heartbreak
    Or playing white knight misunderstood, misunderstood

    Alone in these strange streets
    I think that I’ve walked them enough
    Poetry and Aeroplanes
    I am tired of waiting for love

    Another night I lie awake
    In woken dreams of faith and fate
    Hope my love don’t come too late
    Hope my love don’t come too late

    Alone in these strange beds
    I think that I’ve travelled enough
    Poetry and Aeroplanes
    I am tired of waiting for love

    You’re the ocean

    There’s too much sky, not enough blue
    There’s too many questions to why I love you
    There’s too many clouds, not enough sun
    The rain must fall on everyone

    I’m fire-you’re the ocean
    I’m energy-you’re the rhythm
    Love is somewhere in between
    What you believe and what you dream
    I’m just trying to make you mine
    You’re the ocean

    There’s too much doubt and not enough dare
    There’s too much decision everywhere
    There’s too much decision everywhere
    There’s too much talk and not enough time
    Let’s close our eyes and not our minds

    I’m fire-you’re the ocean
    I’m energy-you’re the rhythm
    Love is somewhere in between
    What you believe and what you dream
    I’m just trying to make you mine

    You look for leads, I follow clues
    You love to win, I dare to lose
    Mostly you’re a mind game in my head

    You are earth, I am water
    I can give you what you’re after
    You can be the word – I can be the rhyme
    There’s really nothing you can do
    You’re going where I’m going too
    Stay beside me, stay beside me
    I want you

    I’m fire – you’re the ocean
    I’m energy – you’re the rhythm
    Love is somewhere in between
    What you believe and what you dream
    I’m just trying to make you mine
    You’re the ocean
