Broken Lights of St. Petersburg

 

 

 Worlds away from where you’re sitting now
I can clear my head
By the riverbed
And though you’re still here in my thoughts somehow
Seems you slipped away

Perhaps I’ve been afraid to lose control
Or to make my peace
With the memories
But something ‘bout this city’s aging soul
Lets me breathe again
Like a long lost friend

I make my peace with what has been
And melt into this overwhelming scene

Kid you better watch out
You don’t know where I’ve been
Oh, you foolish child
I know you haven’t seen
These broken lights of Saint Petersburg

Saint Petersburg, you sparkle in the dark
Play your melody
Like it’s just for me
But a million fates have stumbled to your heart
And they intertwine
And they alter mine

Kid you better watch out
You don’t know where I’ve been
Oh, you foolish child
I know you haven’t seen
These broken lights of Saint Petersburg

And the growing might of this distant world

Kid you better watch out
You don’t know where I’ve been
Oh, you foolish child
I know you haven’t seen
These broken lights of Saint Petersburg

We never had an ending
But I don’t care
I’m making new beginnings
And dropping you off here

And you may have been
A blessing in disguise
A detour in my story
A part of my life

Kid you better watch out
You don’t know where I’ve been
Oh, you foolish child
I know you haven’t seen
These broken lights of Saint Petersburg

The broken lights of Saint Petersburg

 

Cafe In Copenhagen

 

At a café in Copenhagen
Sits a woman with a stale cup of coffee in her hand
Chasing ghosts when she’s awakened
By the kind attention of a strange, loving man
He says: “Cheer up! Why you so sad?
With eyes like yours, it can’t be that bad!”
She blushes as tries to cover up a smile
Thinks to herself: “Noone’s made me smile like this in awhile.”

Won’t you take me away
Go out on a limb, go chasing sunny days
It’s no more than a constant escape
From the pain of it all, a cover from the rain
But I love you

A river runs through Copenhagen
I’ve watched the water flow with nowhere to go
And what’s the point of being shaken
When all but water in this river eventually slows?
Cheer up girl! It can’t be that bad
With a mind like that, no wonder that you’re sad
Through the streets of Copenhagen you walk eyes shut
Always asking for more, but more’s never enough

Won’t you take me away
Go out on a limb, go chasing sunny days
It’s no more than a constant escape
From the pain of it all, a cover from the rain
But I love you
I love you…

At a café in Copenhagen
Sits a woman and a man, maybe he’ll understand

Won’t you take me away
Go out on a limb, go chasing sunny days
It’s no more than a constant escape
From the pain of it all, a cover from the rain
But I love you

But I love you…

Chasing Dreams

It’s easy to get lost in all the pretty autumn leaves
Lighting up the dark, still sometimes it’s hard to breathe
This city is so vain – I think it got the best of me

I’m clinging on to you
Hoping
Somehow you’ll pull me through
When I’m choking

On my pride
On all the lights
And all the colours
When our minds grow bigger than our heads we’ll have each other
Hold on tight and go on chasing dreams

Sometimes the only thing that keeps us going are the thoughts
Of the glory that we’re destined for, its duty is to us
And how there’s no escaping once you’ve heard the opening shot

I’m clinging on to you
Hoping
Somehow you’ll pull me through
When I’m choking

On my pride
On all the lights
And all the colours
When our minds grow bigger than our heads we’ll have each other
Hold on tight and go on chasing dreams

Maybe one day we will get there
Maybe that will be the end
Maybe we will have new dreams by then
And have started over again
Maybe what we want cannot be done
For one reason or another
Maybe there’s no way of knowing
If we’ll ever walk on water

Once in awhile can’t help but wonder if I’d be better on my own
That you keep me to the bottom of the ocean like a stone
Not that you’re to blame, but you know how ambition leaves you cold

Still I hold on to you
Hoping
Somehow you’ll pull me through
When I’m choking

On my pride
On all the lights
And all the colours
When our minds grow bigger than our heads will we still have each other
Hold on tight and go on chasing dreams
Just hold on tight, please don’t let go of me
Hold on tight and go on chasing dreams

If You Were My Man

 

I know that I’m hard to handle at times
And I know it’s hard to keep up when I keep changing my mind
I don’t promise I’ll change, but I promise I’d try
If you were my man

I make no promises I know I can’t keep
The only thing I can promise you is me
And not to hold you back, when you long to be free
If you were my man

If you were my man
And I’m not here to save you; I just want to hold your hand
If you were my man

Maybe we’ll wake up one day
And realise we want away
But that’s life, and really it’s okay
I still want you to be my man

Just be my man
Won’t give you the world, but I’ll give you what I can
If you’ll be my man

If you were my man

Nordhavn Station

Husker du en dag da du gik din vej
Jeg ved endnu ikke hvorfor, men det var nok min fejl
For jeg er om noget en fejlbarlig person
Der stod alene og forladt den dag

På Nordhavn station

Kunne ikke bære dine øjne, når alt jeg fik
Når jeg så i dem var et træt og glødløst blik
Ku’ have bedt dig om at blive, men det havde ikke hjulpet nogen
Du ville stadig have forladt mig på Nordhavn station
Og jeg tror ikke engang, at du egentlig ved
At du knuste mine illusioner om kærlighed
Og desuden gør det stadig ondt, men det går jo nok
Hver gang jeg kører gennem Nordhavn
– hver gang det er det næste stop
Og jeg ser dig stadig som du forsvandt den dag
Ind i toget – på perronen stod jeg alene tilbage
Jeg ville sige at jeg… Nej! Men det’ jo bare en illusion
Så hvorfor kan jeg ikke sætte fod

På Nordhavn station
