LYRICS

JANUARY - WHELMED 

THE WATER

Though I don`t want to go

There´s nothing to see but blue

Just every shade of blue

And soon now

A little chill

A soft wind

Will blow away this thought

And I´ll be lees distraught

And it will stay behind

When I am on my way

I try to let myself to walk away

And yet I stay

`Cause I am all alone

Everyone else is has gone

They seem to know the waste at time it is

To stay behind

The water the feeling

A part of me

I know that the freedom came under my skin

The water don´t matter I´m drawning in you

The water the feeling

A part of me

I know that the freedom came under my skin

The water don´t matter I´m drawning in you

I feel got summer drunk

Over into my thoughts of you

The moment made them true

I try to blame the stars

And I will blame the sun

But in the end I´ll follow your command

And come undone

Pure drops of love

Pure drops of love

WHISPERS:

 

Run down

My walls

Shout out

What you want

Throw me

On the ground

I’m not afraid of thunder

But silence is all I get from you

 

Whisper

Just a whisper

No more 

Than a whisper of love

 

Too late

Too soon

I’m not

Dead ’n gone

Wake up

Somewhere else

It’s next – I see it coming

SOMETHING SHINING

 

The wilderness has pulled you

Making you it’s own, it’s own

Now the wind is echoing, echoing come home, come home

And in the shadows you appear

Standing there faithfully

Like something shining in the moon light

Your heart

Keeps on whispering 

Your, your heart

Keeps on whispering 

Your, your heart

Keeps on whispering

it’s pulling me

Like something thing in the moonlight

Familiar eyes keep me wondering, why, why

Where did our time go

how`s it been so long

and how you’ve held on so strong

you’re so strong

like something shining in the moonlight

Your heart

Keeps on whispering 

Your, your heart

Keeps on whispering 

Your, your heart

Keeps on whispering

it’s pulling me

Like something thing in the moonlight

DELICATE

 

Washed on the shore

From the twisted waves and their thorns

She has come to rest

on the boarders of your life

back against the wall

Cause their broken arms let her fall

She has laid her head 

on your shoulder for the night

It’s so Delicate

 

Hold it so you feel it’s heart beat

Hold, on to it

Hold her so you feel it’s heart beat

Hold, on to it

 

Here he has laid his head 

And he whispers now in the dark 

Of all we want and all that is to come

it’s so Delicate

 

Hold it so you feel it’s heart beat

Hold on to it

Hold him so you feel his heart beat.

Hold on to it

Hold it so you feel it’s heart beat

hold (delicately) on to it

Hold on to it

Hold on to it

Hold on to it

SIMPLE STORY

 

There’s something in the loss

Tripping over roses

Running in the dark drenched light

Following the blind, breaking slowly

We feel we’re slipping and then

Something opens up our wings

 

It’s in the music

It’s in the sun

It’s in the simple

Simple Story of a Saint

It’s in the moonlight 

It’s in the dance 

It’s in the Simple

Simple story of a Saint

Simple Story, Simple story of a saint

There’s something in this worlds loudness

That covers silence in the why-less sky

Slaves of space and time

Seeking merciful sweetness

Where we feel most safe

 

t’s in the music

It’s in the sun

It’s in the simple

Simple Story of a Saint

It’s in the moonlight 

It’s in the dance 

It’s in the Simple

Simple story of a Saint

Simple Story, Simple story of a saint

LIKE MIRRORS DO

 

You brought down the lightning

But you lost your thunder

raising hopes to light your your wondered sky

I fell up into your shining hole of comfort

Throwing blossoms in your wish filled well

 

Like Mirrors

The ripples burn their way through

Like mirrors, like mirrors do

Like broken mirrors, scattered do

Like mirrors, like mirrors do

 

Now my rolling atoms

are set against your coldness

Come into me

and don't mind the sparks

 

The ripples burn their way through

Like broken mirrors scattered do

Mirages of wanted water pull

Like nearly perfect mirrors do

 

First you called for it

Now you run from it

But there’s no stopping it

The waves, the waves are coming

My water is like your fire

Like Mirrors do 

You can hide from it

Say you never wanted it

But there’s no stopping it

The waves the waves are coming

Your fire is like my water

Like mirrors do

 

Like Mirrors

The ripples burn their way through

Like mirrors, like mirrors do

Like broken mirrors, scattered do

Like mirrors, like mirrors do

TESTIMONY

 

Way up high wear choices reign

rain into your life

Pharaohs come and rights and wrongs

and wandering on the night

You can choose a lonely home

But it’s a lonely way to fall

A lonely way to go

 

Whats your testimony

Whats your testimony 

What are you going to leave behind

Whats your epic story

Whats your epic story

How are you going to paint the sky

Paint the sky

Oooo ah oooo ah

Paint the sky

Paint the sky

Paint the Sky

 

Under what you thought was best

Is what is right for you

Feel the gentle pull of what you love

Guiding you

Hold on, hold on till you know the way

Hold on hold on till you know your way

It’s the only way to go

 

Paint the Sky

Make it a good one

Paint the Sky

It’s your only Try

Paint the sky

Paint the sky 

Hold on 

Hold on

You will paint the sky

 

Whats your testimony

Whats your testimony 

What are you going to leave behind

Whats your epic story

Whats your epic story

How are you going to paint the sky

Paint the sky

Oooo ah oooo ah

Paint the sky

Paint the sky

Paint the Sky

TOO SOON

 

Softly goes the break

Of a heart that only knows it’s to wait

By the hand of time

Watching slowly as it turns

It’s cant come

 

Too Soon for us

Too soon for us to know we’re not alone

Soon, for a love

For a love that we have always known

How long for us

if you could see my face

It echoes now, it echoes now

This is our time and place

Our now could never be too soon,

Too Soon

 

Floating in the tied

I’m waiting patiently with the broken

(With the broken hearted)

As our stars collide

the truth will become real

it won’t be

Too Soon for us

Too soon for us to know we’re not alone

Soon, for a love

For a love that we have always known

How long for us

if you could see my face

It echoes now, it echoes now

This is our time and place

Our now could never be too soon,

Too Soon

Too Soon

TOUCH THE RAIN

 

I’m learning the wisdom of

this world I’m in

I watch the trees as they grow

Maybe there’s too much to know

 

’cause when the gardens bloom

sometimes I look away

so far

I haven’t felt the canyons melt into my heart

 

Touch the rain

Oh oh

Taste the sun

Oh oh

Feel the wind

Oh oh

’cause nothing really dies

all it does is change

 

I hope even barren land

Can heal itself

That it’s a matter of time

’cause earth is one of a kind

 

and in the lushest green

and brightes blue, we’re small

I know

But then again without

We’ll burn, go grey and cold

 

Touch the rain – touch the rain, let the river run

Oh oh

Taste the sun – with the sand on your naked skin

Oh oh

Feel the wind – don’t you wait, let it in

Oh oh

’cause nothing really dies

all it does is change

YOU FOR ME

 

Like the water falls

So the pond can see

The rolling clouds 

Behind the trees

And the edge of near

Makes why so clear

 

You for me

And me for you

Fall into the sea

You for me

And me for you

Fall into the sea

Time has caused the rock to break

So the sand can fill the glass it makes

 

You for me

And me for you

Fall into the sea

You for me

And me for you

Fall into the sea

LINAH ROCIO & THE LIGHTHEARTED - ARMOUR & THE UNIVERSE

LOVE LETTER

 

My dear beloved
I fear Love As I fear you
Through my laughter I can hide what bothers me Not always
Sometimes I laugh because I laugh
I cried when you left
I cried so hard
I cried til no tears where left to cry
And I hated love
I felt empty, and worn, betrayed and used
I felt abandoned and useless
All felt useless and unworthy

It was then that I closed all doors to my heart
I closed them and I laughed
But.. I did not really laugh
After a while I started to feel joy again
I discovered music - again
And I wrote, I wrote so much

And all the while I hoped to never see you again Because seeing you meant to feel again your touch I will never forget how we sat in perfect silence Listening to bad musicans trying to be funny
And we said nothing
And just - held each other
I shall never forget that

It was then that I knew that a part of me
Belonged to you forever
And I could not say what part it was
It wasn’t my body and it was more than my heart Some would call it magic others love
i don’t know how you call it
I don’t know what it was but
i could have sat there forever

And now I’m coming back
Although it was you who left but
I’m coming

And I fear love
I fear love because more than love
I fear rejection
I fear rejection and abandonment
And blame and guilt or addicton

To not be touched To not be love That is what i fear

Yes I fear to not be loved
In fact to fear to not be loved
Belongs to love because love is so delicate
It disappears if you do not care for it
Love is like snow
It falls only under certain conditions
And it stays only for a season and then melts away
That is what I have experienced with love
And why with you is it that i want it to stay forever And then it’s not winter nor spring
It is the moment when I touch your hands and I Feel your nearness and your silence
And within this silence I can hear you
But not in words
I hear something else
And it can only be you
Because - you sound different
You sound different than the rest
And i have heard many
But you sound different
Like the palms of your hands
They felt unique and mine
As if they belonged to me
Your head on my breasts feel like the first touch Your lips when they rest on my skin
They feel like the only lips I want to have on me Everywhere softly
I want your gentle love
Yes I fear brutality and violence
Within this softness because I know it
I have known it

And now - I fear love

Maybe I have always feared it
But I’m coming my love
I’m coming
And I want to be gentle
And I want your gentle touch

 

Please be patient with me
I have known other than pure love I have known other than pure love
Let us be gentle my love
And not fear love
Let us be us
Let us be touched by silence When we hold each others hands When we hold each others hands

ARMOUR & THE UNIVERSE

My armour is too thick
I’ve built layers of walls around me
I function like a soldier at war
I measure things
Calculate things
Observe

I take up spaces in order to not get lost in my own
All in me just wants to go back
Back to your arms
I can still feel your hands at night
How they hold mine
It’s as if you were closer now
Closer than before

People say it’s an illusion
I have to let go
But then why do I feel you so

Why do I feel your being nearly inside me
You touched me in places no one ever has
And no one ever will

What happened

I want to hold you and touch your hair and be with you once again This incredible closeness that got lost somehow
Somewhere
We all have stories
And maybe our stories were too similar
They clashed against each other without preparing us
And I always wanted to hear more of your story
I wanted to know you more
I wanted to see
what bothers you
What excites you,
What makes you doubt yourself
What makes you see.
Your vision
Your dream

Our dreams once united us and now my dream is tearing us apart When all I wanted was to
Dream with you
Walk with you, sleep with you, eat with you. talk to you.

 

I wanted to travel with you.
I wanted to show you what I had seen
I wanted to lose myself in your company
And maybe that is what I did
I got lost in you

But shouldn’t we all get lost in order to find ourselves
Why does everything have to be so certain
Nothing is certain
All moves and travels

I try to catch up with the speed of light that caresses my hair and weaves in pieces of you And as soon as they are complete they start dissolving again and the weaving begins again And I try to catch a glimpse and I cry
As I see it disappearing,
Dissolving,
In front of me

I want to wear you and carry you with me
I want to feel you everywhere I go
Sometimes I pretend I’m fine
With all of you dissolving

But then I feel you again
I can still feel you rocking
Rock with me

It melted my armour
The one I wore before
But this armour is new
I don’t know what it consists of
I don’t know what it does to me and you
All I know is that I keep on breathing and I keep on doing all the things I normally do Sometimes I seek distraction
Superficial coincidences building up to major events that have no meaning
Not in the big scheme of things
At least not in a way that I believe counts
But what do I know?

I can still love you I can still love you

 

 

We don’t have to define things Remember how you said this to me?

I was lost and I was scared as I was transforming
And I tried to be the same but I couldn’t
I lost touch of you and I lost touch of me and I lost touch I begged for it
And I found it sometimes
In someone else’s arms
But it was always you I longed for

And what is this longing?
Was it really you?
Was it real?
Are you real?

CONQUEST

I watch you sleep
Your complexion is still soft
And I don’t want to wake you up

You’re so beautiful
You’re so beautiful

You’re like a dream
Being with you is like a dream
And I wonder
Is this a bubble that will burst
Or is this real
And I touch you and kiss you
I hold you

You’re real

You don’t even wake up
You’re so tired
Oh I love to watch you sleep
You look so peaceful then
At peace with life
Yourself
Maybe you aren’t
But when you sleep you are

And I anticipate tthings
Like - going out with you
Conquer the city
Dance
Dance with me
Get intoxicated a little
Why not
And then enjoy it
Just enjoy it

Enjoy me
I’ll enjoy you

And I become a little bit like you
And maybe you become a little bit like me Our energies flow into each other
Like magnets

And the city is ours tonight

We can do whatever we feel like doing Just be ourselves
And I love to be myself with you
I love to feel so free

And you know me
You know me well don’t you Come on let’s go
Come on
You’re the boy from the sea
And I’m the pirate
And we are both criminals
I told you
Our crime is passion
And curiosity in life
To love life
I want to go where you come from Show me

I want to know
Who you are
I love the way you smile at me
It’s so honest
So pure
Makes me pure too
Makes me honest too

You know
I just want to be with you
You can do whatever you want Whatever you want
You could do anything
Anything

Come on
Let’s go
Let’s go

ALL IS A MIRACLE

All is in motion
All moves
All breathes
The sky breathes
The earth breathes
Even the sun breathes
It turns and we turn
And all turns in harmony Beautiful connection of all with all

Nothing is being left out All has to be formed
All has to grow
All has to experience The change

The painful The healing The new

We all heal
We all carve our nature
Or our soul
Into bodies
Whatever body there is
And all vibrates within
We just forget

Sometimes it seems as if everything stands still But look
Everything is constantly moving
And changing
And learning
And everything loses the old
To become the new
It keeps transforming
We keep transforming
And in this we get washed away
By whatever it is that needs to wash away
And we let it all happen

Let it pass our surface but not our being
And the soul reflects itself in various
Shapes and forms
Throughout everything
Everything
Everything

It is not much that separates us from others Or from the other
In order to be reborn
In order to experience

A new frequency
We have to evolve
Sometimes it happens slowly Sometimes fast

All wants to be cherished
All wants to be enjoyed
All wants to be loved and appreciated All wants to be looked at
Admired
Most of all
Everything wants to be
Loved

Love is what brings all together It’s in everything and everywhere It guides us
Love is who we really are

And what surrounds us is simple yet complex It’s beauty and wisdom wants to engage with us Look how all needs time
All is energy
All moves
All breathes

And everywhere
The magic
And everywhere
The magic
The magic

FOLLOWING TIDES

Before we were born
I walked at that beach
That beach where we met
Remember
I do

I walked with you
I remember your hands
We held each others hands
And laughed
We knew we shall soon go back
Like countless times before
And we smiled

We started running
We ran so fast
Chasing each other like only children do We touched the sand
And moved the clouds with our arms
At will
We shouted at the suns and moons Surrounding us
Following the tides
And screamed at the top of our lungs
We touched each other
Making noises
Wading in water
Throwing ourselves in the soft sand
Full of joy
Full of anticipation
Excitement

We shall return
We shall return

We hold each other close
And speak ancient words
Whispering secrets
That now we don’t understand
We recognize
That love and life has been prepared for us Before we knew

We bow our heads gently
And we know we shall meet
And we shall live it

And we speak secret words That we shall forget
We make our own gestures And promise ourselves

To be let found by one another

 

We walk steadier More calm Smiling Nodding Waiting

We shall forget this beach
With it’s suns and different moons We won’t remember how we danced And laughed like children do
We have to forget
To be born again
That’s how things go

And we shall meet again
We shall meet

We can hear the wind whispering
It’s time
We start giggling
It’s time
The journey is starting soon
Go
Don’t miss the tide
Dive in it
Don’t wait for me I come later
And our dreams will come true
I shout
Yours and mine
And before you leave
We chase the clouds again
Moving them at will
We look at the suns and the moons Surrounding us
One more time
And we scream again at the top
Of our lungs
We laugh
Til we can’t stop laughing
Giggling like children
And we run chasing each other

 

Like only children do

 

We hold each other close One last time
And speak ancient words Whispering

We recognize that love and life Has been prepared for us Before we knew

We bow our heads gently And we know we shall meet And we shall live it
And we speak secret words That we shall forget

We make our own gestures
And promise ourselves
To be let found by one another And that we shall try to remember Remember
This

We hold each others hands again One last time
We shall find ourselves
And we let go

SPACES

 

The now is never as important as it is now Now is the change
Now is the transition
Now we know

And time is not real
We invented it
There are no limits
The skies are infinite and so are we
This weird electricity running through all That might frighten us or not

It enriches our being and aging Becomes irrelevant

Sometimes we get lost in the everyone In the rush of the vast masses Everyone with everyone in everyone

We have to leave spaces between us to perceive
The uniquess to which we all belong
And we all unfold to it
Sometimes we get lost in concepts that aren’t ours
Or we get lazy and get caught in the trap of conditions We have been conditioned my love

We have been conditioned Conditioned with farces and masks Maybe even masks can serve us well And what could be more important Than staying here
Stay in the now
Stay in the now

NEW COLOURS IN GOLD

New Colours In Gold
Start again
Be alive
Don’t think about tomorrow Or what you should do
What you you could have done

I do what I love to do
And I burst out like bubbles and I giggle
It’s my energy

I want to touch it
What is this
This new sensation out
Of the ordinary
I lost my habits
I lost my rules
I lost my ideals
I lost my home
I lost everything

Let me lose some more
I want to lose it all
I want to start again
I want to start again

My instincts rest on my shoulders
And they guide me like invisible friends They repeat again and again
You’re always there where you should be And I can feel my own softness coming back My warmth

I’m like waves touching your feet
Like a wave pouring out to shore
And then back in
Isn’t that life?
A wave that steps out and then
Comes back again

I want to feel it
I want to feel you

I spin with arms streched out
I feel the speed
And my whole life rewinding right there in

Front of me so fast
And in one split second
I’m back there in the past
In that room with you
And all those things I felt so attached to Are being pulled out by something
Or someone
Sucked out
I’m being stripped off everything Everything

And my clothes come off
And I’m naked
Naked in those new colours in
Gold

New Colours In Gold

And i fill so fullfilled
Peaceful
So happy
I want to share it and
I smile
I smile to everything and everyone
It’s contagious

Suddenly we all smile
We recognize each other
Even if complete strangers
And right there
Right there everything smiles
In those new colours in gold

In those new colours

BLACK SEA

Black sea
I want to get in
Take me

What is left of me?
Does it matter
Take me
Take me now

I want to be with you
I want to forget
I want to feel your
Darkness
Invisible

I won’t struggle
I won’t fight
I surrender

You let me stand at your shore
I can feel you welcoming me
And I forget myself
The concept of myself
And I cry

Your beauty
Your striking darkness
That consumes all of mine
And lets me be me again

I feel my own innocence coming back I feel my own light
Maybe brighter than before
Maybe it has always been this bright
And you accept me
You accept my darkness
And you turn it into something Beautiful
Strikingly beautiful

And never have I been so relieved To still be here
Experience the sunset
The sunrise

The air - cold and stiffening

The wind cold as ice

 

Wake up
wake up
Wake up to the beauty of this planet
This planet that allows you to stay This planet that allows you to live

And here you are
Black sea
Reminding me
You black beauty

And it’s all here
This is the beginning
And this is the end
What started already ended
What is there
Has already gone

What used to be is no longer
Let go
Let go

Nothing is yours
Nothing was

VISITORS

 

I was sitting on the bus and I was wide awake The seats of the bus made out of wood
I ran my fingers across the wood making Patterns on it

Feeling the wood as if for the first time

 

People in the bus
All souls with a body
Breathing
We are all souls I thought
All souls
All made out of the same essence
Just different stages different timelines

And we all struggle
We all fight for something
And we live
We are alive

We are all here for some purpose
Although it’s nothing that we could understand But in that split second I understood
I knew why we were here
I felt how all was connected somehow Interwoven
The magic incorporated in little things
Not too obvious
Little things

I looked at the sun
A ball of fire
Warm savage
Out of control somehow
But perfectly
In balance with all

Souls I thought
Souls

We are just souls that temporarily Live in bodies

All different kinds of bodies
Our bodies a miracle
The air was nearly touchable and I closed my eyes lightly

 

I caught a glimpse of the clouds Moving and I looked at them More intensely

What a miracle those clouds
As if they had their own life
Their own rythme
And the souls in the bus still there Still breathing

I could feel them Us
I could feel
Their joys

Their dreams
Their worries

Our bodies carrying us from the moment We are born to the moment we have Our last breath

The last breath
That last breath

I repeated it in anguish As I went back to that Moment that

Moment When I left

 

I could see myself from above As if I were someone else And it felt so unfair
How could it be that I were

To leave

 

I wanted to stay even though
It seemed hopeless to want to
At that point

But they said life could be beautiful Life is beautiful

Yes I had seen what you call
The other side
Although
I didn’t really see it
Maybe more a feeling

It’s blurred somehow It’s not fully there but It’s stored somewhere In my cells maybe

I guess I felt what I felt When I came back Back to my body Back to life

For a split second
I saw things how they are
I mean how they really are
Simple

And I was filled with a sense of peace And felt that I belonged here
We all belong here

I cannot describe it really
It’s as if peace was stored in me
I had taken that peace with me
Or maybe it had always been there
I touched the wooden chair again That fireball in the sky
How old is it
Those other souls sitting in that bus How old were they
I mean really
How old is a soul
It was as if I came to this
World for the first time

Like a visitor

Maybe sometimes it feels like
we are stuck
And the human in us seeks to find The reason
The human in us divides in right
And wrong
In good and bad

But we are more than what we think we are We are souls and we know everything Everything
It’s just hidden behind layers of thoughts And assumptions

 

 

Belief systems Theories Thoughts

Look at us how we beam when We smile
When we love
How we love

How we radiate when we laugh Uncontrolled and ridicolously loud Look outside
Look outside of what

Is taught to you to look at Look at those clouds Feel the air
Feel that wooden chair Feel the rain now

Making your clothes stick
To your skin
Little drops running down your face Your body shaking
Your body moving

Your body
It’s yours
And it won’t last
Forever
