REBEKKA BAKKEN 

I keep my cool

  1. Any pretty girl

  2. Everything can change

  3. It is hard to be a loser

  4. Just having my fun

  5. Love may seem hard

  6. May I borrow your pillow

  7. Nobody's fool

  8. Peculiar

  9. We hit it again

  10. Welcome home

  11. What love is not

  12. You bring new stars

  13. You're crying

1. Any pretty girl

 

Any pretty girl can make you her

Any girl can make you fall in love

Any pretty girl can make the clouds disappear

If a pretty woman loves you, you can too

 

Any pretty girl can make you whole

Any pretty girl can blow your heartache away

All the girls in the world are so pretty to you

'cause your mother was once pretty too

 

When you were born

The first thing you knew

what your mother's smile

It was the only time

Ever since then

you've been looking for that face again

 

Any pretty girl can make you her

Any girl can make you fall in love

Any pretty girl can make the clouds disappear

If a pretty woman loves you, you can too

When she smiles

 

Any pretty girl can make you her

Any girl can make you fall in love

Any pretty girl can make the clouds disappear

If a pretty woman loves you, you can too

Any pretty girl can make you whole

Any pretty girl can blow your heartache away

All the girls in the world are so pretty to you

'cause your mother was once pretty too

When she smiled

2. Everything can change

 

Maybe you do not need to say much

Maybe you do not need to give advice

Maybe your friend lives like you do

Or maybe even stronger than you

 

Maybe you do not need to do much

Maybe you do not need to try so hard

To have a friend is just the same

 

 Everything can change

A world can break into thousand pieces

You stay the same, cause you are a friend

 

Maybe you'll be feeling lost at times

And it's hard for you to understand when

Days become a world you do not know

 

You do not need to say much

You do not need to know much

All you need to know is your love

 

Everything can change ....

 

How can you show a friend

Love does not know end

 

Everything can change ...

3. It is hard to be a loser

 

It is hard to be a loser

When it is forbidden to lose

No matter what you start

It's bound to have an end

And no matter what happened

You know you are to blame

What others call beautiful music

Is what you call the blues

 

When I woke up this morning

My bed was gone

I was freezing like a dog

And the ceiling was broke

It rained through the window

The floor was wet

The first thing I saw

What you had left

With her

And that you both are walking around calling beautiful music

What I now call the blues

 

But okay go to hell

And get out of my sight

If people ask how I feel

Tell them I'm doing all right

And if people ask why I cry

I'm not at all sad

I just invented a new form of laughter I've been practiced since last

It is what you call beautiful music

And which I call the blues

 

If you one day you think that your beautiful world has fallen apart

Please look me up

Since it's me who paid the party

You see, a man is like a house

There is always an open door

And I do not give a shit if a thousand women have lived there before

4. Just having my fun

 

All the things I should have done

All the things I should have known

All the things I should have had

All the do's I do not

 

Laying in my bed all day

I like to star in the air and say;

All the things I should have done

And all the don'ts I do

 

I am here and that is all I care

I'm not on the run

Just having my fun

In the sun of my bedroom light

 

Do not know what is wrong about right

Do not know what is day in night

Or why people grow older

 

I am here and that is all I care

I'm not on the run

Just having my fun

In the sun of my bedroom light

 

I do not need a take and give

I leave that life for you to live

It's up to you and what I do is what I choose

It's better with a simple mind

Do not need a God to give a sign

I get my fix and do not get sick

I do not do turn tricks

 

I am here and that is all I care

I'm not on the run

Just having my fun

In the sun of my bedroom light

5. Love may seem hard

 

Love may seem hard before you know it

When you do there is nothing you can say to

here

You can not make it too, not with words

Maybe not even love can reach the guarded heart

That guarded heart of hers

 

You can not save her, nor can anyone but she

She wants to smile every time you smile, because you do not

share

Her paint of love

It's the guarded heart of hers

 

To an armored heart is danger in each touch

Do not try to open it, it may not be time to

Love

May be hard in my heart

When you do, you know it can not be pursued

 

    Love does not loose and does not choose

    Love is one can never be two

 

It's the guarded heart of hers

6. May I borrow your pillow

 

May I borrow

Your pillow tonight

May I borrow

Some dreams that make things right

May I borrow

Your feather down tonight

 

Everything must turn from here

Right now all good is everywhere

 

For this one night

I see the world in your light

For this one night

I see my life is right

For this one night

For this one night

 

May your pillow be my guide

Until my eyes stay open wide

7. Nobody's fool

 

I may pretend like I'm not aware

Every time you enter the room

I may pretend like I could not care

Whether you stay or go

I may pretend I do best on my own

Just to mention a few things I do

But the truth is

I'm down on my knees for you

 

I think you're playing with me

It's all for show

I'm nobody's fool

I keep my cool

And slack and turn my back

I'm nobody's, nobody's fool

 

I may pretend I've got nothing to say

That's the actual truth 
I do not have much to say anyway

I may pretend and laugh you away

When you smile and come over to me

I just tremble and do not know what to say

The truth is

I've lost my speech on my knees for you

 

I think you're playing with me

It's all for show

I'm nobody's fool

I keep my cool

And slack and turn my back

I'm nobody's, nobody's fool

 

I guess it's me who's playing the way that I'm pretending

And I know a player's a loser

I'm swept off my feet

Can not find a seat

Maybe you can see below

Cause the truth is I am

Crawling on my knees like a fool

Lost my speech and I'm about to drop some drool

Completely your personal fool

So I've got no choice and much better off

10. Welcome home

 

Standing at your door

Like so many times before

Here I'm again

Returning to a friend

 

You kiss my weary feet

And take me to your room

I lay my coat away

You wash my face and say;

 

"Welcome home,

It has been a while

You've walked a thousand miles back home

Now leave your worries behind

And rest your mind "

 

This time I'm back for real

This time I want to heal

I do not want to

Hold that coat again

 

Home again, it has been a while

I've walked a thousand miles, back home

I leave my worries behind

And rest my mind

 

The truth behind my words

Is only known to you

You know I do not want to

Stay the summer through, still you say;

 

"Welcome home,

It has been a while

You've walked a thousand miles, back home

Now leave your worries behind

And rest your mind

8. Peculiar

 

It is peculiar how everything turns

Going on the bridges have burned

The point of no return

A blessing you have earned

 

It is peculiar what watching can be

When a memory is not what you see

The point of no concern

A blessing you have earned

 

There's nothing left to keep

Nothing left to be forgiven

Nothing left to weep

Nothing left for you to loose

 

Nothing left to save

Nothing left to be regretted

Nothing left unsaid

Nothing left to regret

 

It is peculiar how everything seems

When you're looking through glasses that keep

Old print and photographs

Of things that did not last

 

You've got everything to keep

Everything to be forgiven

Everything to need

Everything to regret

 

Everything to say

Everything to be regretted

Everything unsaid

Everything left to loose

 

There is nothing left to keep

Nothing left to be forgiven

Nothing left to weep

Nothing left for you to keep

Nothing left to say

Nothing left to be regretted

Nothing left unsaid

Nothing left for you to loose

9. We hit it again

 

We hit again

The nothingness of all we thought something

Is not that sweet

How crazy it seems

Now that's it all over

 

You with your touchy nerve

That laughs my looks in your direction

How did I

Get tangled up

And lost in all those silly worlds

 

All for the sake of love

At least what we're capable of

It tasted good, though

That world

 

Now that's it all over

You were all I needed to see

The nothingness we both thought something

 

How sweet it is to play when you know it's a game

 

Well, what can I do

Your charming awkward ways that's really something

What do I care

It's not only fair

To enjoy a bit of nothing

 

Not for the sake of love

But what we are capable of

It tastes so good

 

Now that's it all over

You were all I needed to see

The nothingness we both thought something

 

It tasted good

How sweet it is to play when you know it's a game

Not for the sake of love

But what we're capable of

How sweet it is when you know

How mean when you do not

11. What love is not

 

Love brings peace and love brings solace

Love brings strength to the most frail bodies

You want to know what it is

When you see

 

What love is not

It is simple but

Still the hardest thing to do

When you still hold

A wounded soul

That can not recall

That have forgotten all

 

Love is one can never be two

Love is easy but hard to pursue

You want to know what it is

When you see

 

What love is not

It is simple but

Still the hardest thing to do

When you still hold

A wounded soul

That can not recall

The nature of itself

12. You bring new stars

 

Dear Angels I have not spoken for a while

I do not know if I do this right

God knows I have forgotten what I knew

I do not know any longer what is true

So I ask and stay still

 

Bring me new stars

To my heaven

Show me where the sun's at night

 

Dear Angels, I lay still I find you here

Speak softly but not to my ears speak

Dear Angels is it me who called you first

Or is my calling, the answer to your care

I know as I'm silent

 

You bring new stars

To my heaven

You show me where the sun's at night

You take me to the sun at night

 

You place new stars in my heaven

You take me to the sun at night

 

You are here to see me through to you

You place new stars

To my heaven

You show me where the sun's at night

13. You're crying

 

I still love you

Deeper than before 
I have lived a bit more 
Years have passed since last

You're crying so much easier now

 

Cry out the last drops for the lost

Come rest your head you have paid all costs

Now is the time for you to heal

You're crying so much easier now

 

All throughout the years

You've spoken many words

Some were lost some were heard

A quiet time has come

You're silent and you're resting your mind

 

Know all the stars outside tonight

Come rest your eyes

You have seen enough

Stars are reflections of a heart

That's crying so much easier now

 

There's no use

In watching all the mirrors you broke

You're older now

The road somehow

Still winds on

 

And I still love you

Deeper than before

I have lived a bit more

Years have passed since last

You're crying so much easier now
