  11. Why do all the good guys get the dragons?

1. As I lay myself bare

I was naked last night, the cold night and I, I invited him to stay as long as he'd like.

I spoke of love and the wonders of life.

Didn't bother dressing, I had nothing to hide.

But then he simply laughed at me.

Saying "bare skin has no beauty, especially not yours.

Here is my advice;

Remember the past, so much easier that way.

Hold on to the memories of bygone days.

Then you know what you have and you know what's to come.

Nothing can harm you and I won't come to your home.

But then I simply looked at him,

Saying "I don't mint you here, I knew that you would come as soon, as I lay myself bare"

As I lay myself bare

So here I am, i've got nothing to wear

Not even an image, you've got nothing to scare.

You might not like that I'm stripped to the skin,

I've got nothing to loose and you've got nothing to win.

As I lay myself bare

2. As long as there is a voyage away

 

The only thing you need to know is who you are

To look inside your self and see a thousand stars

The glory is in your heart

Then everything you look for will be the greatest treasure

And the wonder is that it is yours

 

Heaven is a place that only you can find

It's somewhere underneath all that's on your mind

Heaven is part of you

That never dies or fades away, just sometimes gets forgotten

When the rainy seasons get too long

 

As long as there is a voyage away

There's always a journey back

3. As tears clear our eyes

 

You danced with borrowed feet

Through times of borrowed days

With the promise of a try

To the rhythms of a lie

Then a sound was to be heard

A song that I had to learn

You sang with an alien voice

In the midst of your hearts own noise

 

The song was yours

The song was

 

You danced too long with no face

Borrowed too many days

Then the borrowed feet failed

And the voice became frail

You whispered weak to the night;

"Tuck me in I'm tired"

And the night put on his coat

That strangled the sound of each note

 

This song is yours

The song is

 

 They say you left behind

Nothing but a troubled mind

For all who's left to cry over

But tears can turn to gold

4. Did not I

 

Did not I love you

Did not I betray

Did not I throw away

Everything gave you

 

Did not I leave you with

A mountain of my stones

Did not I do you wrong

 

Did not I leave with all

Your diamonds in my hands

Did not I take all

 

Now I see you have not lost

 

Did not I forget to say

I'm sorry every time

Did not I

Waste your love

 

Now I have not lost

 

Did not I tear you heart

In two when I deceived

Did not I make you cry

 

Now I see you only cried for me

Now I see you have not lost

Now I see you can not loose

5. Even if you buy me thousand cars

 

I could choose you

I could loose you

I could miss you

I could you

I could feed you

I could not you

But I do not

 

 

I could fool you

I could rule you

I could not be wrong

I could cheat you

I could lure you

I could use you

But I do not

 

Even if you buy me thousand cars

And praise me beyond the stars

 

As long as there is a need in all your trials

And stories you can not get by

 

I could teach you

I could lead you

I could reach you

I could ease you

I could show you

I could tell you

But I do not want

 

Life does not want to be found in others hands

Until you know you'll never under - stand

6. Going home (is a lonely travel)

 

Going home is a lonely travel and long

You think you're there after all these years

And your feet feel sore

You see no more why

 

You're always looking for roads to take you home

You change your mind and buy new shoes thinking

Almost there

Yeah almost there, quiet

Quiet

 

Far away but no farther than a forgotten thought

Looking back is like strange imaginations

You're there, you're there

 

You traveled hard and long for so long

Through changing seasons not knowing you carried all along

The home that's your own

Now know

 

Far away but no farther than a forgotten thought

Looking back is like strange imaginations

You are there you are

 

Far away but no farther than a forgotten thought

Looking back is like strange imaginations

You are there you are

 

Far away but no farther than a forgotten thought

Looking back is like strange imaginations

You're there, you're there

7. Innocence

 

No one and anyone can say they have seen

What I am now, and

Who I have been

I'm naked and kissing and making love

I'm naked and kissing and making love

 

Someone may say I have not innocence

I know who I am and what

I only can;

Be naked and kissing and making love

Be naked and kissing and making love

 

Love me and love you and love this moment too

I'm loving you, loving him, loving them and their brothers too

 

I only know what I know

To choose what is beauty

To know where to go

I'm living life, not wondering who's right

I'm living life, not wondering what's right

 

I heard them say I lost my innocence

If they only knew what I found as I lost

Heavenly nakedness, kisses of bliss

Heavenly nakedness, kisses of bliss

 

Love me and love you and love this moment too

I'm loving you, loving him, loving them and their brothers too

8. Is that you

 

Are Those your tears 
running down my cheeks 
is did your breath 
playing with my hair 
is did your love 
running through my veins 
How can it be 
how can it be 

Is this your song 
coming through my mouth 
is did yourvoice 
playing with my heart 
How can it be 
this moment is 
so full of you 
so full of you 

It's not a wish 
not a memory 
it's not a thought 
as I ask; 

how can it be 
this moment is 
so full of you 
so full of you 

You answer me through my smile 
on I know you've been here 
for a while 

Is that you 
Is that you

9. Just a little moon

 

Just a little moon

Shining on my love tonight

The night is open wide

And I lay by his side

 

All the guests went home

We've closed the door to what's gone

And now this little moon

Is peeking through our rooms

 

And all else shall be

Quiet, nothing shall disturb

The given bliss, the grace

The new that's in his face

Reflecting that one of my own

Finally we are alone

Here we lay in moonlight arms

a kiss can not do us any harm

 

Just a little moon

Young and true and just for us

We can not change the stars

But we can see the moon at last

 

And all else shall be

Quiet, nothing shall disturb

The given bliss, the grace

The new that's in his face

Reflecting that one of my own

Finally we are alone

Here we lay in moonlight arms

The day can not do any harm

10. So ro til (meg selv)

 

So ro til meg selv

La meg sovne fort i kveld

Natta kommer farlig nær

Trer meg inn i mørkets klær

So ro i myk seng

Drøm om sol og kløvereng

Drøm meg igjennom natta

 

So ro nå i natt

Søvnen kommer som en skatt

Lukke begge øynene

Drøm bort alle løgnene

So ro fra old som frister

So ro til mørket brister

So ro til ny dag

11. Why do you get the dragons?

 

Why do the dragons

Who push them around

And tell them they are good for nothing

Why do not you stay in hell?

Do not know the story oh so well

I am a lot of good guys in my life

Unfortunately they all have a wife

Who push them around

And tell them they are good for nothing

 

Where have all the dragons gone

Good guys picked them everyone

When will they ever learn

When will they ever learn

 

Mom says good girls go to heaven

But what about the rest of us

In bright, it would be enough space

Why all the good guys come to us

And stick around until they're turning nuts

Then everyone is saying we're to blame

But no one wonders why they ever came

To be pushed around

And they are good for nothing

 

Where have all the good guys gone

Dragons picked them everyone

When will they ever learn

When will they ever learn
