Happytune

This is a rather special song.Currently this is quite a rough draft, it needs some better mixing, but it’s good enough to show the basic idea. Anyhow, this song was written one weekend when I was surfing Soundcloud and found this very nice piece of music:

I really like the energy in this song and I wanted to create a happy song for once, and I did.. To begin with. 

When it was time to write the lyrics I was reading a lot about racism and got a bit irritated at that. The story I was reading about was around #jagarjason, a discussion taking place in Sweden on the subject. Anyway, I wasn’t in a happy mood when writing the lyrics so it became a not-so-happy tune.. 

Lyrics

I haven’t seen
much at all
I blend in
Not from that far
I have no reason 
not to feel
pleased and happy
’bout my deal
 
But then I think
about it all
What I see
from afar
people making their own rules
and think of racist morons too
 
This was to be an
happy tune
Can’t see no reason
too much to do
before we’re even
getting close
to being tolerant, good hosts 
 
Can’t all these idiots agree
on what it is that we all need
just some diversity and respect
will go a long way, end this pest
 
How do they think
if at all
the people judging 
fear to fall
Scared of anything
thats new
resisting progress
lead us to doom
 
Spreading their
insecurity
feeding hate
based on fear
as their narrow mind
can’t see
the beauty of 
our society

Waiting

 

A little tune about waiting for something. I’m not 100% happy with the lyrics, will be small changes before this one goes to Spotify, but the song is mostly done.

 

Lyrics

Someday I will
Get what I want
Feels time stands still
I wait

 

I don’t know how
Guess I’m hoping for luck
Wish then was now
But I wait

 

Feel it, know it, can’t explain
I see the sun, ignore the rain
Something great will come my way
..and I’ll just stand and wait
..and I’ll just stand and wait

 

Waiting , patient

I don’t know how, but I know it will work
Longing , dreaming
But I won’t tell anyone of my thoughts
..and I’ll just wait
 
One day I will
Wish for nothing more
I will be at peace 
I won’t wait
 
I will enjoy
Everything I’ve got
Not wanting more
Nothing, to wait for
 
Feeling, knowing, all for real
Seeing all, living a dream
Nothing will have been in vain
…that is my fate
..so worth the wait

Birthday

This is a song that I wrote on one of my kids Birthdays..

Lyrics
======

Today is your birthday
one year older
time is flying fast with you

It got me thinking
about this dad thing
how it affected me , what I do

Am I any different
How are my values
I haven’t reflected on those before

Now I thought it over
And want to tell you…that

Words go nowhere to describe
how you children changed my life
the feelings is so deep inside
you’re all that matters to me

The feelings that I have for you
I don’t know how to show they’re true
I try to guide you on your route
although I don’t know the way

Not even this time
Did I reflect on
What life would be if you hadn’t come

I simply don’t want to
It doesn’t matter…cause

I’ve forgotten all about
Life without you kids around
Isometimes wonder if I want
You ever too grow up and leave

Words go nowhere to describe
The love for you I feel inside
I am so proud to be your dad
I want you to know what I feel

And It doesn’t matter what you do
I am always there for you
You see, that is what fathers do
You are all that matters to me

Today is your birthday

Work

Got annoyed listening to some young people nagging about not getting everything they wanted served to them so I wrote this.. Guess it’s a clear sign that I’m getting old.. nagging about youth like that.

Lyrics

====

I overheard
you today
Seems you’re
out of luck in someway
Money isn’t falling on you
As it should be
I heard
you say

Sitting and Slacking
every day
You parents wishing
you ran away
All your life is
on the web and
you never show your
face outside

— Ref

Work
What you get is up to you, you have to
Work
No such thing as luck, just do , you’ve got to
Work
Your parents can’t get you through, you must
Work
It’s not fair but else you loose

You wish to be rich
instead by birth
Have been born with a silver spoon
up your butt
But all around you
showels laying
Pick one up and
hear what I’m saying’… now

..Ref x2

Alone

Long time since I uploaded something to Soundcloud. Mostly I’ve been busy with finishing the songs I put out recently on Spotify and some other small projects, but now it’s time to put out some material again.

This song is a negative one about having difficult choices. Enjoy.

 

Lyrics

It’s another day ; or so they say
Guess it’s all the same ; as yesterday
Don’t know what to change ; no use anyway
All these people here but we’re alone all the same
I see all these trees; can’t go away
Do they feel like me ; or accept their fate
Who knows where to go
No one cares
We’re alone
No road with golden stones
all will hurt
but one leads home
Never seen such pain ;  as I’ll create
If I choose the way ; as I must some day
How long should we wait ; will it happen by fate
It’s a waiting game, everything will change
I see all these trees; wonder what they’d say
They’re oldest here; ought to show me the way
It’s cold to be alone
Makes you tough
Kills the soul
With you I feel at home
I really know
where I should go
Never alone
Feels all alone
Nowhere to go
Just let go, and move on
It’s cold to be alone
Makes you tough
Kills the soul
With you I feel at home
I really know
where I should go

Lies EP

Folder

 

My first ”real” record. To mark some of my songs as finished and moving on, I took six of my songs and put them out on a record on both iTunes and Spotify.

 

Special thanks to Johan Gulliksson for listening and giving feedback throughout the process

Reading

Result of playing with the android app RD4 Groovebox and my electric guitar. A song about trying to read between the lines. Quite alot of synth-sounds used here, with the analog sounding sounds of RD4 Groovebox used as the base. Also the drums come from that application. All generated on a Sony Xperia Tablet Z and then imported into the computer for mixing with other synths and sounds..

Enjoy.

You Know

This is a song I wrote as a chill-out, slow, kinda cool sounding love song. As usual, it didn’t turn out as planned, but it’s for the better.

With lots of help from Johan Gulliksson (@gullikid) the arrangement became a bit different, with much better tempo, than my original plan. Have a listen and let me know what you think!

Sinners

I downloaded this great app from Google Play, RD4 – Groovebox during lunch one day at work and played with it. It didn’t take long until I had something I liked and on the way home in the car I came up with some simple lyrics to the beat and recorded it.

The drums and beat are created using RD4 but the synth is from garageband (for now. I might change that to a RD4 synth just to have the song completely made there).

Not the best singing ever, but this was fun to make, and I now have a new instrument to play with. My Sony Xperia together with RD4.

Surreal

This little tune came to be on my guitar the same hour as I wrote Ghost. I wanted something more positive so I came up with this tune. A couple of evenings later, everyone were asleep and I decided to try to make this song on the computer and it became a bit Electro/Pop-ish. Let’s call it an influence of the PetShopBoys concert I was at in Copenhagen a few weeks ago.

Anyway. A little happier tune and my voice at the highest it can possibly reach! Enjoy.
