In the deep

Sally Song

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

 Diving deep into the deep blue emotions

Trying to swim my way back to the shore

Where I used to dance before

I cannot quite recall what led me here

It is all a blur, it’s all to near

I hope time will make it clear

Oh, won’t you come, O Sally

Won’t you take me down

Into the morning valley

To the break of dawn,

Oh won’t you sing, O Sally

Through the winter storms

Call on my name and tell me

That there’s still hope for drunken souls

The water is muddy, my vision unclear

And my mixed emotions are making it hard to steer

There’s wind from the east, and breeze from the south

My compass is spinning, I am drifting further out

My voice is too weak to shout

Somewhere along the way I lost all courage to stand up for something

While I swim I start to sing,

My voice is low; it’s more like humming

 Oh, won’t you come, O Sally

Won’t you take me down

Into the morning valley

To the break of dawn,

Oh won’t you sing, O Sally

Through the winter storms

Call on my name and tell me

That there’s still hope for drunken souls

 

Run Away

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

 It scares me to let go of fear

It’s become a friend that I hold dear

And no one knows me more than him

Or so it seems, or so it seems

All though I cry and hide my face

I feel secure in his embrace

He loves me so

He needs me so

Or so it seems or so it seems

Run away, run away

From all your sadness

With a smile on your face

Run from all your sadness 2x

I do not like the changing winds

They are destroying things

Destroying things

Afraid to test my growing wings,

Will they carry me?

All though I know unchanging love,

I do not dare to trust its glow

Will it help me if my fear just grows?

Run away, run away

From all your sadness

With a smile on your face

Run from all your sadness 2x

 

When Grace Left Town

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

When Grace left town

They buried all her clothes

They burned her house to ruins

When Grace left town

When Grace left town

Her daughters’ disappeared

Their names were never mentioned

When Grace left town

When Grace left town

When Grace left town

The leaves began to fall

The whole town started trembling

When Grace left town

It’s such a shame

And we are all to blame

We knew but never fought it

When Grace left town

When Grace left town

And my heart was broken,

Yes my heart was broken

True words never spoken

And my heart was broken

When Grace left town

They buried all her clothes

They burned her house to ruins

When Grace left town

When Grace left town

 

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

 I followed you down to the station

It was so sad to see you leave

You embraced me and said

”Don’t be sorry, there is a time for everything”

Oh, don’t go please stay – Don’t leave me here alone

Oh, please stay, don’t go – Don’t leave me here alone

’Cause our time has just begun

The train left a minute to early

It was to late to change your mind

Though I knew you’d be back

I was crying

The last thing I saw was your smile

Oh, don’t go please stay – Don’t leave me here alone

Oh, please stay, don’t go – Don’t leave me here alone

’cause our time has just begun

Yes our time has just begun

Home is where the heart is

Home is where the heart is

Home is where the heart is

-And our time has just begun 

 

Song Of Forgotten Songs

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

This is a song of forgotten times

Years that came and went to fast

Moments we did not use when time was there

Moments we did not know we had

This is a song of forgotten tears

People we did not care to see

Lying helpless by the road – Ignored by men

Who knew – but did not want to know

This is a song of forgotten words

Songs we did not dare to sing

Melodies appearing in our deepest sleep

Wake me up and lead me to the sound

 

The Break Up

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

Sun is down I stare into the mirror

Your words still ringing in my ears

All that we have is sorrow

I’m leaving you first thing tomorrow

Try to sleep – I hear you breath

You’re still next to me, but not for long

Try to reason, but it’s all unclear to me

So surreal

All that we have is sorrow

You are leaving me first thing tomorrow

It seems it’s out of my hands

You’ve made your decision

You want to be free

Where did we go wrong?

I thought that I knew you,

I thought we were fine

Before the bell wakes you up I kiss you one last time

All that we have is sorrow

You’re leaving me first thing tomorrow

Tomorrow

 

In the deep

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

In the very deep of the sea

Fish are swimming gently beside me

Showing me the riddles of life

Empty cans and bottles are sleeping in the night

Ooooo…

Sinking like a bag of stones

Music like I’ve never heard

Streaming from the cones

Octopus caressing me

My lungs are filled up

I’m free

Darkness fall

Darkness fall, surround me

Darkness fall

In the very deep of the sea

Fish are swimming gently beside me

Showing me the riddles of life

Empty cans and bottles are sleeping in the night

Ooooo…

Darkness fall

Darkness fall, surround me

Darkness fall

I’m diving, diving, diving

Oooooo…

 

Can I see you Again

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

 The first snow has fallen. The temperature is rising.

Because you called me and asked me “come stay as a friend”

I pack my belongings and book the train ticket

And I ask in the mirror “will I be back again?”

The first time we met was a long time ago

You told me to trust you, and I did

But I was too young and I left you alone

I moved to the city, I found a new life there

I travelled and travelled and travelled again

But deep in my heart you were never forgotten

The warmth from your body,

The prints from your hand

I guess I thought it was all lost,

I heard you found a new friend,

but I gained new hope in your words

“Can I see you again?”

I try to think of the right words to say

As the train leads me closer to the place I want to stay

The present is clear, and the past is forgotten

As you hold me and kiss me and hold me again

And I whisper through tears “will you ever forgive me”

In your smile I can read I am more than a friend.

 

Dance With Me

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

 It’s a clear and bright sweet morning

I put flowers in a vase

You come in you smile and plant

A kiss on my face

We’ve been longing for this moment

To finally have some time alone

We have signed the forms and papers

It’s written in stone

So dance, dance, dance with me honey

Tango if you can

I am yours and you are mine

Till the end of time

Even though I know there will be

Harder times and flying stones

I will keep you in my heart

You’re never alone

 

Be Well

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

Deep in your heart and your soul

Be well, be well

Your treasure is worth more than gold

Be well, be well

The winter is cold and the night

Has taken it’s toll on us all

I can not ask you for more

Be well, be well

Sinners and killers and whores,

Be well, be well

We all have a ghost in our soul

Be well, be well

Know that all hope is not lost

Know that the lion just growls

He can not bite you no more

Be well, be well

 

The Hill  (bonus)

Tekst/Melodi: Maria Solheim

I know my story has begun

Into the magic land I run

I know that I will never find

My peace without the highest Son

Why oh why oh why should I

Even take the chance to try

My tears will never give me rest

Until my head sleeps at his chest

The ice has covered hands and feet

I melt as I can feel the heat

I try to hide I’m scared to feel

This love that force my knees to kneel

Why oh why oh why should I

Even take the chance to try

My tears will never give me rest

Until my head sleeps at his chest
