Lyrics for the music:

”Winter City Sadness”

Winter city sadness

Winter city lights

Waiting by the Harbor

But there´s no Ship in sight

You were all my reason

Why do silence hurt

Turn away from madness, please

 

Battles in the evning

Battles through the night

Tried to touch your silence

There’s no city lights

Then I saw you smiling

Why do silence hurt

Turn away from madness, please

 

Dancing with the Devil

Tender moments, please

Shadows from existence

All thats left to se

And I saw you smiling

Endurance from the past

Give the world its peace, please

Lyrics song and music by Patrick Karlsson

"The City Song"

What can I tell you? The pleasure of emptiness. Klondike's fading flowers and Lego of concrete. Wanted to make a trip now. Asphalt's sleepy laziness. Take me where my dreams will carry.

So I traveled to London. A big safe city hug. Swarms of people exploring. But emptiness remains. Far away the trees hum. Tempting with healing songs. But fear is an invisible wall.

A lone cosmonaut in town. Why am I here, what do I want? The forest breathes of freedom now. Shadows of truth like drifting clouds. reality beyond the city sand. Dare to take a step towards new goals. Sleepy. Do not get that far.

... Far away the trees hum. Tempting with healing songs. But fear is an invisible wall.

What do I want to tell you then? My thought is fleeting, like my song. Resting at a café shop. Writing a line for my brand-new song. There are people living everywhere. Big town city is my element. Freedom is just a simple song.

”Heart and soul”

I’m all alone

Nothing to hide

No more secrets

I need to be strong, open and true

Thats hwo I am, kind of

 

Dancing alone, singing a song

Dreaming, hoping

Longing for a time

Heavy my mind

Need things to change

I’m leaving

 

And I flew to Zion

And from there to Harlem

Searching for a heart of Gold

Through the streats of Rio

Dancing in the moonlight

But my heart is still lonley

Restless my soul

In the land of heart and soul

 

Why cant I be, more like the rest

And no more hidning

Tell me where I should go

Where I should turn

When loneliness comes

Tell me

 

And I flew to Zion

And from there to Harlem

Searching for a heart of Gold

Through the streats of Rio

Dancing in the moonlight

But my heart is still lonley

Restless my soul

In the land of heart and soul

Lyrics, song and music by Patrick Karlsson

"Animal freedom"

 

Where are we, its hard to se

Open Fields of destruction

There is a song, for us all

Turn away from slaughterhouse madness

 

Let them loose, our friends from the past

Let them be, Animal freedom

Blood moon is shining bright

Food gives them carnage and mayhem

 

Thousand eyes, in trust they walk

Walking to their destruction

There was a time

Maby once more

Animal freedom for ever

 

Slaughterhouse, why cant people se

Set them free, animal freedom

Blood moon is shining bright

Open your heart, give them freedom

Lyrics song and music by Patrick Karlsson

"The Dancing Priest"

 

Vers1:

When he was a boy.

Hell was just a Word

Times were innocent

Innocent his eyes

 

Dancing down the stream

Through fanatic crowds

The priest that lost his faith

The air was thick and damp

 

Hell, is just a block away,

He slayed his daemons there.

Into the sunlight.

 

The moon will write in different chords.

The song of pain and lies

 

Dancing the night away

The priest, the night, on Hollow ground

Daemons before his eyes

Leads him through the ground

Through guts and bones, good help him

 

Vers 2:

Bloodstained Eagles fly

Prayed with shaking hands

The priest just killed a man

Or was it just a dream

 

He Tried to teach them all

What is right and wrong

But when the Eagles fly

No one lissens then

 

Fallen from his grace again

The stars and strips from god

Have no More bearing

 

Strings played on broken nerves

An anthem for his country

 

Dancing the night away

The priest, the night, on hollow ground

 

Daemons before his eyes

Leads him through the ground

Through guts and bones, god help him

Lyrics by Patrick Karlsson and Gustaf Karlsson. Song and music by Patrick Karlsson

”Summer Child”

Vers 1:

I want to be my normal self

Stars collide, then drifting away

Soft pollution on my mind

Just walk away

Refräng 1:

Trying to be a better person

Everytime, loosing my way

Flying over human landscapes

Alone, inner battles for sunshine

Sometimes Im cold, when the darkness, taking over

Love, I just want to feel sunshine

Want to give love to everyone but

Loosing my way again

Vers 2:

So find a way, summer child

Gentle clouds, drifting away

Threes are reaching for the sun

Energize my mind

Refräng 2:

I take a walk in the park, just breething

Birds are free, so are also we

Humanmade should not be blood, sweat and tears

We create this world together

Why so pale, sad and lonley, feel the sunshine

 walk, we are in this together

Children playing and people smiling

Just walk, summer child

Lyrics song and music by Patrick Karlsson

"Above the skyline"

Vers 1: Rays of sunlight
vacation from humanity
I hide and everything is wrong
Oh no
There were times I would go under
If iI didnt hold on to that hope
And you
My friend you stood there strong while I was gone

Vers 2: Above the skyline
Silence and some lonley clouds
I wish there were something I could do
Oh no
I tried to be someone I could not be
I wanted som much, but there is hope
And you, my friend you stood there stong while I was gone

Vers 3: Solid ground now
first step to humanity
Love is where life surrounds my heart, oh yes
One more step into the sunlight
Humanity please give me one more chance
And I
I will stand there strong while you are gone

Vers 4: Rest in peace now
Silence is no where to find
I give and everything is good, oh yes
We march into eternity
Away from competition, war and hate
Oh yes
We will stand there strong all through our lifes

Song, lyrics and music by Patrick Karlsson

"Varberg blues"

Skyffel’n i dödgrävar’ns hand;

Tiggaren från ett annat land;

Barn som leker vid havets strand:

Ja, jag ser kärlek i allt

för livet är inget mer än ett lån

och mitt huvud är fullt av kutterspån;

glädjen är varm, hatet kallt

 

Jag drog tillbaks till lugnet i sta’n

och drack martini hela da’n -

tristess - och man blir van

även vid de’

och det regn som kom

var det ingen som brydde sig om

så jag fortsatte med lite rom.

Vilket är sånt som kan ske.

 

Jag vill ha dig, bara dig.

Jag vill ha dig här,

så är det. Jag vill ha dig.

 

Det fula fyllot i parken bor

under bron med tejpade skor.

Fint folk som snörper mun glor

och tittar bort. Vad tänker dom på?

varför det är så svårt att förstå

livet är alldeles för kort.

Verklighet är bara för mig

 

Din favorit på gården blev stor

hon tog adjö av far och mor,

men vart hon for det vet ingen här.

Jag har drömt om henne då och då,

om män och den kärlek hon borde få.

Jag har blivit gammal och grå.

Jag drunknar i livets melodi

 

Jag vill ha dig, bara dig.

Jag vill ha dig här,

så är det. Jag vill ha dig.

Farsan är gammal, trött och senil.

Hans döttrar lever helt vanliga liv.

Jag förblöder, saknar hyfs och stil,

jag lägger patiens som tidsfördriv.

 

Sommarens sandaler smög sig ut

och med hösten blev allt som förut

hoppet tog slut, med den första frosten.

Mina planer är likt höstens blad

vackra att se - men gör ingen glad,

Tröstlösheten kommer i sakta parad som brev på posten

 

Jag vill ha dig, bara dig.

Jag vill ha dig här,

så är det. Jag vill ha dig.
