Sounds from Norway

Midnight Choir / Mercy Of Maria



As I drink too much
As I scream out of lust
At the moon for someone to touch me

As I fail to please
What the moon won`t ease
I can`t sit still from running wild

As I wipe my past
For something good to last
As demons are crowling under my skin

As I walk away
There`s nothing to do but pray
That Maria will take me in her arms

At the mercy of Maria
Will I lay my aching head
At the mercy of Maria
Will I find my resting place

At the mercy of Maria
Will I lay my aching head
At the mercy of Maria
Will I find my resting place


Midnight Choir - Jeff Bridges



Nothing's cookin' but the rain
The rain that's pouring down
I can tell you when the silence came
But now it's hanging to the ground
All slow motion and hazy here
Inside this room of mine
If the morning don't disappear
Faith will take me down the line

I wish I was Jeff Bridges
Moving down the highway
With the wind blowing through my hair

If you're getting tired of faking it
Why don't you do go fuck someone else?
If you're getting tired of losin' it
Don't ask me to come and help
I believe that we can all escape
I believe the light will shine

I wish I was Jeff Bridges
Moving down the highway
With the wind blowing through my hair

All I would ask of you
Remember me for what I've done
And not for what I didn't do
And not for what I didn't do

I wish I was Jeff Bridges
Moving down the highway
With the wind blowing through my hair

I wish I was Jeff Bridges
Moving down the highway
On a road that's taking me somewhere
Somewhere...........


Paal Flaata - Don't You Walk Away




Paal Flaata - Wish I Was (Mickey Newbury cover)



Oh I wish I was a willow tree
Leanin' on a lazy breeze
Movin' like a midnight train
Through rainy Georgia

Wish I was a grain of sand
Playin' in a babys hands
Fallin' like a diamond chain
Into the ocean

Oh a willow tree is strong enough to bend
Never like the oak that lives in fear of the wind
A grain of sand is all I ever wanted to be
Lay me down let the water
Wash right over me wash over me

Oh I wish I was an old guitar
Sittin' in a beat-up car
Hittin' every two-bit bar
From here to Texas

Then I wouldn't be ashamed
To look up my old friends
And they would be so proud
To see me strung up again


The 3rd and the Mortal - Why So Lonely



Why so lonely
Here you may rest
Lay your head down at my chest

Darkened days brighten
No more to frighten
Will you be mine
Until the end of time

Why so lonely
I'll give you shelter
Comfort you, carry you
through our lives

Darkened days brighten
No more to frighten
Will you be mine
Until the end of time

Why so lonely, I'll be the one
you always can turn to
I am yours

For as long as you want to
Lend me your heart
I will shelter it
Until the end of time


The 3rd & The Mortal - A Touch Of...


Kari Rueslåtten - My Lover



My lover always meets me with a smile
My lover always kind always patient
My lover like honey and milk
My lover on a cold November morning

But on the former Sunday I gave him in
And on the former Sunday he went away

All the grief that I have caused is
nothing now compared to this
All the grief that I have given him
is nothing now compared to this

And I can see him as he lies there
And I can see him in his grave

My lover on a bed in the evening mist
tender and pure in his last moment
My lover on a bed spreads his beautiful hair
out on the pillow out on me


Storm - Lokk (Calling)


Eg veit eit sted oppe i mellan åsen
Kor måsene mjuk og tre å kaster skugge
Eg veit ein gut, den stautaste tå alle
Auge ljose i mørkret, "Vil du staden sjå?"

Eg ventar til dagen er omme før eg til staden fer
Set meg ned på hella tru om han kjem?
Eg vert so varm, kjenner kor hjartet banker
Kom, kom hit hjå meg, ta meg i den favn

[Calling (translation)]

I know a place up in between the hills
Where the gulls cry and the trees cast shadows
I know a boy, the kindest of them all
Eyes shining in the darkness, "Do you want to see the town?"


Theatre of Tragedy - Image



You act a pansy, pushover
Do live your fancy, go lower
Who is that, someone says your name
You seem chancy, moreover
The call is mine
I'm gonna get you up
I'm gonna get on top
The call is mine
On the skew, you're dancing all over
You are the anti-fashion statement
In a blue suit, and orange pullover
You look like my old dog Rover
I'm gonna get you up
I'm gonna get on top
The call is mine


Leaves' Eyes - For Amelie



Why don't you feel me?
Why can't I hold your hand?
Never said that you'd leave me
And I know you are somewhere

I held you up
Every time you were down
Your crying stopped
When I was around.. but..

Why don't you love me?
Enough to stay with me
Now tell me truly
Was it there in your heart too?
All that I'm left with
Is a dream of me and you

I held you up
Every time you were down
Your crying stopped
When I was around.. but..

You filled my soul
With your beauty and with hope
We're different although
We were just like water in sand

Why don't you feel me?
Why can't I hold your hand
You never said that you'd leave me
And I know you are somewhere

I held you up
Every time you were down
Your crying stopped
When I was around

I held you close
When you fell to the ground
And now you've torn all my hopes apart
You could have said good-bye

Ατμοσφαιρικά σχεδον όλα -θα μου πεις 6 μήνες με το βόρειο σέλας, πώς αλλιώς! Είχε πλάκα εκείνο που έβαλες και τους νορβηγικούς στίχους -να κάνουμε και πρόβα τα λιγοστα νορβηγικα μας (την εξης μια λέξη δηλαδή, takk που σημαίνει ευχαριστώ)! Χα χα!

Λιγοστεύουν αν τους συσχετίσεις :)
O Paal Flaata τραγουδούσε στους Midnight Choir. H Kari Rueslatten στους The Third & the Mortal κaι στους Storm. H Liv Kristine (Leaves' Eyes) στους Theatre of Tragedy.
Αν εξαιρέσεις τους Storm, οι άλλοι έχουν πολλά ατμοσφαιρικά στοιχεία. Γι αυτό τους έβαλα, για τα Νορβηγικά :)
Το κομμάτι είναι παραπλανητικό μουσικά. Είναι κι αυτοί ατμοσφαιρικοί, αλλά σε ατμόσφαιρα που ταιριάζει με τ'όνομά τους :)
