KINDER VERSIONS


WE TRIED LOVE

When I cry over you
I find it hard to calm down
So I rest my head in the grass
and I make it rain
I wish it would rain
I let it rain

Did I light your body on fire?
Then I must owe you a dance in my rain

Let’s lay low
stay low

I am sad cause this all, it feels so blue
I’ve been down, I’ve been way low
All these tears they brought us here
I have tried
we tried love

When we clash down down down
I fight the urge to follow you

I build a wall around me
I build a wall around me
I build a wall upon me
I build a wall right through


I am sad cause this all, it feels so blue
I am down I feel way down
Love is tears, they brought us here
I feel sad cause this all, it feels so blue

We tried
yes, we tried love
I love you, I love you

I feel sad, that’s why I have to leave

I love you

If you let go, I can let go

 

KINDER VERSION

My river of love and my crystal of truth
I followed you everywhere and you showed me how to move
You showed me the dark, showed me the light
there was a glitch inside my cold cold wall

But what’s the point of knowing
when this is already good
Something grows in my garden
but they say I ain’t ready to play


My river of love and my crystal of truth
I followed you everywhere and you showed me how to move
You showed me the dark, showed me the light
Boy, you showed me the dark showed me the light

I knew it all along
I knew It all along
Something grows with me

Have you been excited?

I’m bringing all my stories back
erasing all the kinder versions of my past
I’m bringing all my stories back
erasing all the kinder versions of my past

Cold feet at the streetlight
Have you been inside it?
I’ve been inside it

I’m bringing all my stories back
erasing all the kinder versions of my past
I’m bringing all my stories back
erasing all the kinder versions of my past
I’m bringing all my stories back
erasing all the kinder versions of my past
I’m bringing all my stories back
so bring me all my stories back

Cold fate
Cold feet at the streetlight
Have you been excited?

I’m bringing all my stories back
erasing all the kinder versions of my past

 

BYE BYE

Spit it into my mouth so I won’t ever be able to speak again
Now the lake runs from my mouth
falls down on my chest
Water falls on my chest now
waterfalls on my chest

I close my eyes and pray I will never see again
Drop me down here, drop me down
Drop me down here

I don’t wanna stand up
get up
bye bye

Cause how can I stay for this last time
when you brought evil upon us
Don’t wanna repeat the moment of lust
that time I dropped you
I dropped you inside me
then dropped you off

I don’t wanna stand up
I don’t wanna stand up

Bring the glue
so I can glue your eyes shut and sin as I like
Bring the glue
so I can pour it into your ears and curse your mother
curse your father
curse your brother

Bring the glue so I can shut your eyes forever
and dance with the devil
I don’t wanna stand up
get up
bye bye

 
THE MOON WILL NEVER TURN ON ME

If one must live then one must die
Oh the truth must be funnier than this
Visions in my mind remind me of what could go wrong
that I’m afraid to die, afraid to die, afraid to die

but it’s ok

I draw the curtains up to watch the dust play around the room
and it plays with me and it plays me
I felt it was the day that all life’s charm would run away
but it’s ok

I won’t see the sun collapse
I won’t see the stars decay
and the moon will never turn on me
so all is ok

I want to make this right but I don’t feel right
Cause sometimes life tries to eat us up
but then I take a look around and see how dust turns into gold
and I embrace this world, embrace the world, embrace the world
and I love it all

I won’t see the sun collapse
I won’t see the stars decay
and the moon will never turn on me
so all is ok

Oh yes we could drown
feel the heat from the life all around
Let us breathe
The moon will never turn on me
I won’t see the stars decay
I won’t see the sun collapse
so all is ok

all is ok

BREATHE INTO ME

Come closer
Kiss me now while I’m still aroused
Cover my breasts with both your hands
and breathe into me

Hide underneath me
breathe in breathe out, hear our hearts beat
I hide underneath you
dream on dream on, I’ll dream with you

Feed life into me
shamelessly devour me
with thighs surrounding you

It’s all I wanna do
It’s all I wanna do
All I wanna do

Kiss me now
breathe love in to me

Hide underneath me
breathe in breathe out, hear our hearts beat
I hide underneath you
dream on dream on, I’ll dream with you

WALLS
Show me all that love you keep from me
now hand me all that light you keep while they sleep
Show me all that love you keep
or bring me to the side where’s peace

Show me all that love you keep
now bring me to that side where
I’ll bring you to the side where’s peace

Hands down, with me
tear down all the walls we keep
Hands up, with me
tear out all the daggers in me

Wake up sleeping memories
I think they have to
I have been asleep, I have been asleep
when I flew over you
my hands down, bring them down

Hands down, with me
tear down all the walls we keep
Hands up, with me
tear out all the daggers in me

Show me all the love you keep
all the love you keep
all the love we keep

WHAT’S YOUR SECRET?
Put my wig on
Come right in, I am so moved
your face so bright and your teeth all so white

Take a seat, your skin it shines, your hands so long
tell me, what’s your secret?

You look good, you look good
Now that you’re here, I can disappear
You look so good
what’s your secret?

PRAY FOR AIR

Taste the dirt of the water
you know you’ll never be pure

Clean your face in the water
will we ever be cured?

I put my hand in the water
I shake hands with the water

Dive deep in the water
to find air, that’s my cure

Now put your forehead on the ground
and go down down down down

I put my hands in the water

Hold their thoughts in the water
and replace them, once for all

God send us some water
we need to feel secure

Whisper air in the water
to feel the heat once more
so we can be once more
no we will never be pure
we will never be pure

Pray for air in the water

Boil my fear and watch it disappear

We ought to swim in the water
come play in the water
but don’t swallow the water
no don’t swallow the water

I’m sorry this wasn’t good enough baby

I boiled my love in the water
I boiled my love in the water

Come play in the water
we bleed in the water
sharks swim in the water
put your hands in the water
shake hands with the water
make love to the water
put your hands in the water
put your hands in the water
shitfaced in the water
God send us some water
God send us some water
dive deep in the water
and come play in the water
I pray for air in the water
pray for air in the water
pray for air in the water

SORROW

I hear them walking
into this crowded ship
where they grow my thoughts at open sea

They say I’m talking
to that long gone place
where I go
where do I go?

On my run
Oh the trees watch me
carefully they ground me to the lane

The wind blows cold
I feel my face grow old
it will blow your hearts out

Fill my days with sorrow, baby
you feared my heart would grow
Fill my days with sorrow, horror
you feel my heart grow

On my run
oh the trees calm me
when they comb my hair and braid me

They tie my dreams
to the forest floor
and it’s all the same
we all await love

See me flying high
see me flying off
into that open heart of mine
Your soul it covers me
covers all of me
feel me falling, fall in love with you

Fill my days with sorrow, baby
you feared my thoughts would grow
Fill my days with sorrow, horror
and feel my heart go

You feared my thoughts
You feared my heart

You feared my heart would grow
 

KOMDU TIL MÍN SVARTA SYSTIR


STRÖNDIN

Heyri heiðina kólna,
finn hún leitar á mig
Yfir slétturnar á mig kallar kuldinn,
komdu heim
Í hringi snýrð mér áfram til þín steina ég ber,
með tár í blindum augum kyssi ég þig.

Ég kem aldrei aftur,
en höldum áfram saman nú 
Höldum áfram saman nú
Voðaskot mun sækja mig,
það dreymir til mín,
með slætti það mig heggur
í helgu vatni nú ég frýs

Bergmálaðu sláttinn aftur,
berðu hann á mig
og faðmaðu mig fastar,
oftar því mig verkjar enn

Ég kem aldrei aftur, en höldum áfram saman nú 
Höldum áfram saman nú. 

BLÓÐBERG

Villi þér sýn, ég klæði mig úr kjólnum
á meðan sólin gyllir hrygginn minn
kem ég við fossa
Kyngdu öllum kristöllunum
sem ég fæddi fyrir þig, 
ekki skekkja skarpar snertingar nú þig úr beina.
Það heyrist heitt þungt hljóð

Drekk úr þér blóð og kyrja orð til þín
um alla töfrana í þér
því það sem engin veit og enginn sér
er að þú vekur upp öll dýrin inní mér

Ég kyssi grjót og brýni tennurnar
á þeim sem þykjast ekki sjá

Drekk úr þér blóð og kyrja orð til þín
um alla töfrana í þér
því það sem engin veit og enginn sér
er að þú vekur upp öll dýrin inní mér

TIL MÍN

Lá Lá ólíkt þér
yfir líkama minn þú syndir
lágt lágt við læðust um
en hugurinn minn hann segir, 
við komust ekki hátt hátt
ef við flækjumst inn undir skinni
en ég vil gæta og passa þig
þó að endirinn sé eftir andartak

Skýr og skorinort ég er,
þú heyrir allt sem ég sagði aldrei
búðu um líkama þinn eins og hann sé minn

Ætli heyrist í mér?
já, kannski ef sjórinn er kyrr með þér

Skýr og skorinort ég er,
þú heyrir allt sem ég sagði aldrei,
búðu um heiminn minn og ég verð þín

Skýr og skorinort ég verð 
mun grípa um eyru þín um leið
um leið og ég sé að þú villtir mig

Ég finn lyktina af þér

SALT

Límdu mig við þennan bekk hér
lofaðu að hindra leið mína heim
Sjáðu svart malbikið, það bráðnar
mínir fætur þeir brenna

Saman við slökkvum skær götu ljósin
Nú loks ég get drepið tímann
Á herðum mér nóttin hún malar,
lofar að myrkrið þreyti mínar þrár

Stráðu á mig salti.

Þráin hún þrútnar
er dimman þig gleypir.
Nú hvílubrögðum ég beiti.
Skæra birtan heggur okkur í bakið,
hún endurtók mig til baka

Til baka

Segðu sólinni að setjast aftur
og bjóddu næturhjörðinni inn til mín.

Stráðu á mig salti.

ÞAU SVÆFA

Þær dynja hátt, ungar drunur
þær dynja hátt. þeir svæfa þær fljótt
þeir sem höfin eiga

Ég skríð í land úr syfjuðum sjónum
ég kveiki bál sem vekur upp heima

Róðu með mig út á haf því jörðin svíður
Dreymdu mig í kaf og búum þar, við verðum þar
ró, ró, ró með mig út og færðu mér þinn fjólublæ
sæ, sæ, sæ sæktu ró
og fuglinn hló
við drukkum sjó
og burt hann fló.

Róðu mér út á haf því jörðin svíður
Bað þig að renna í bað ég blóðug var

GLÆÐUR

Góðu söltin mín sulla ég á þitt andlit
Strýk af enni glóð, ó þitt óða blóð

O-o o-o færðu mér þinn andardrátt
O-o o-o herra, gef mér hefndarmátt

Óða glóðin sver að smita hitann
Hún brennir á mig stað, stað sem vorum við

O-o o-o færðu mér þinn andardrátt

O-o o-o herra, gef mér hefndarmátt

Í rúmi borgin dvín,
nú get ég svikið þig heitan
Með glæðu aftan að þér
ég brenn og salta ára áranna

TUNGAN

Passaðu glerunginn minn,
hann flagnar brátt af
Bleyttu upp í tungunni minni
áður en hún þornar
Því ég hef sungið of lengi án þess að segja
að hún hefur umvafið sig
inn í mig og ég finn ekkert annað
