YOU GO BIRD | LYRICS

Petter Carlsen you go bird
You Go Bird

This season seems to be the perfect frame
All you’ve ever longed for is peace with the ones who share your name
Do you crave to be a part?
Does it feel like you have lost your heart?

 

I see you in all that’s good
This flame can’t be put out
It will shine through every time
You go bird

 

This season comes to tell of years that made your scars
To tell you that you’ve failed to come across
All your friends are distant stars
I know they’ll come to show
To save the spark that we all know

 

I see you in all that’s good
This flame can’t be put out
It will shine through every time
You go bird

 

I thought I knew what it meant to be alone
You’ve found more company in solitude than anyone I know

Pull The Brakes

A moment to go through past days
A moment to stop to activate brakes
To reflect on something more, inmost to the core
Just to make sure we’re all alive and well

 

Can you tell?

 

A moment to slow the speed down
A moment to greet the ones we surround
Tomorrow someone’s gone, another’s left alone
Then it is too late to tell what can’t wait
Make sure they know before they go

 

I don’t care what it takes
Now it’s time we pull the brakes

 

I don’t care what it takes
Now it’s time we pull the brakes

 

I don’t care what it takes
Now it’s time we pull the brakes

 

I don’t care what it takes
Now it’s time we pull the brakes

The Sound Of You And Me

Every street I walk points to your town
Every single thought hunting you down
Every song I know playing your sound
Every single tune brings you around

 

This is the sound of you and me
Don’t you know this sound?
It’s you and me
You and me

 

Don’t you know this song, I’m sure you do
I point it to your ears to get in touch with you
Every song I know
Everywhere I go
Every single tune…

 

This is the sound of you and me
Don’t you know this sound?
It’s you and me
You and me

 

I don’t mind if this never ends
I’ll try to find another way
This is the sound of you and me
Don’t you know this sound?
It’s you and me
You and me

A Taste Of What's To Come

Each day is the most important
Not yet touched by what’s to come
Not yet captured by the trap
Not yet told to mind the gap

 

Each day is the most important
Not yet touched by what’s to come
This game will turn into a race
A change into another phase

 

The one who’s staring straight ahead
Unaffected by what’s said
Who always drift somewhere
The kind that never dare to care

 

See your smile and hear your laughter
Just be careful little one
This game will turn into a race
A change into another face

 

The one that’s staring straight ahead
Unaffected by what’s said
Who always drift somewhere
The kind that never dare to care

 

And that’s what you get in this life
This is a taste of what’s to come

If Said Was Done

Temporary thoughts you’ve let out
Sweet words escaped from your mouth
They entered my ears

 

Suddenly a lack of control
Disaster is about to unfold
As these sweet thoughts are told

 

I won’t depend on words, no more
The ones that you claim are from the core

 

All I need is a real explanation to make things clear
In all that you do, there is no connection with words that you share

 

Temporary thoughts you’ve let out
Seconds later you’re lost in doubt
You leave me no choice

 

I won’t depend on words, no more
The ones that you claim are from the core

 

All I need is a real explanation to make things clear
In all that you do, there is no connection with words that you share

 

If you’re not really sure that you mean them, hold on to your thoughts tonight
When you’re really sure you should free them, the future holds plenty of time

 

All I need is a real explanation to make things clear
In all that you do, there is no connection with words that you share

From Now On

When my thoughts are wrapped in fright
And no future is in sight
As I search for missing lungs
It kicks in to save the night

 

From now on I’ll leave the thinking to my heart
From now I know, I know that it saved me, my silent friend

 

When I don’t know where to aim
When even different feels the same
When I’m close to apathy
It kicks in to set me free

 

From now on I’ll leave the thinking to my heart
From now I know, I know that it saved me, my silent friend
We must never be apart again
I will trust no one else again

 

And this is what keeps me awake all night
The fear of not doing what’s right
From now on I’ll trust in my silent friend
I’ll trust in no one else again
I’ll leave the thinking to my heart
From now I know, I know that it saved me, my silent friend

 

We must never be apart again

Paindrops

Last night we saw a giant eagle
Painting circles on the sky
The midnight sun was really eager
To make this view an all time high

 

Here we are beside his bed
The conversation turns to snow
Seems no one can break the silence
From a man we used to know

 

From a man we used to know
Going places we cannot follow

 

There is no sign of spark in his eyes
Where spark was meant to be
As substitute for words he can’t find
Drops of pain are what he speaks

 

Not even in his final hour
Will he share what goes on inside
A chain of thoughts arrives this moment
When drops of pain escape his eyes

 

From a man we used to know
Going places we cannot follow

 

There is no sign of spark in his eyes
Where spark was meant to be
As substitute for words he can’t find
Drops of pain are what he speaks

 

Tables turn you never know
A chain of thoughts
Through the snow
To make this day an all time low

 

Drops of pain are what he speak

Half

What if I had my reasons?
An alibi to stay free
What if I would let you see me?
Would you then take charge of me?

 

I would like to bridge this distance
And be all I wish to be

 

I had to lie to lead you off
I hate goodbyes, I made them stop
I had to lie to lead you off
My will to try got overrun by fear
I’m still here

 

I would love to bridge this distance
I would love to have you near

 

I had to lie to lead you off
I hate goodbyes, I made them stop
I had to lie to lead you off
My will to try got overrun by fear
I’m still here

 

Reduced to half, I’m living half ways
A place where no one leaves a trace
I would love to bridge this distance
To welcome others to this place

The Race Is On

And when you find her, strike out your force and let her know

 

When you feel lost and so amused, by sadness you can’t explain
Be not darkened, scared to death, find your own peace of mind
Where you are not within reach
A place you cannot be without again

 

The race is on for fortune, freedom and fame
Where all could crash into mayhem,
Where essence is pain,
Essence is pain
And somehow you go to war
And you strike out your force

 

I know, and so you’ll see
That you’ll find a way
To get by
Wait and see
Go to war
Be yourself and no one else
And you’ll be found
One day
One day

In The Time After

May the time to come bring you strength and courage
To overcome this sudden storm
Not a sound, just the sound of silence
There are other times now

 

Bring them on
Come what may
It cannot be another way

 

An empty house, such a strange seclusion
There’s a fighter in you

 

Don’t be scared
Don’t give in
In time you’ll break the brick within

 

This is your challenge and yours alone
For everyone else unknown

 

This is the moment you will decide
To rise and live your life
