Adolescence ‒ Side A


between the lines
I’ve drawn a million lines
I lay them out by your design
they form spikes on every bed
and tear apart my heart and head

or so it seems between the lines

you’re in my mind a hundred times a day
that’s, to me, your own mistake
orderly and calmly you decide
that sleep will be the last thing on my mind

when I slip between the lines

i’ll be fine
winter’s coming close
it signals to the end
but frightened fallen leaves
never leave me

but never mind
i’ll be fine

then I saw an ocean in the sky
didn’t think to blink my eyes
I remember getting out of bed
but I never left my head

and in my mind
I’ll be fine

ocean
the shifting of the tides
the rushing of the water
brings me down

and shoots me right back up
so I can see the stars
just before I go
back under

and the ocean’s been good
good to me
it drowns me when
there’s no air to breathe

and the whale, it yells
calms me down
just before I drown

and I don’t know how to swim
until the morning comes
and then I die
then I die

and the ocean’s been good
good to me
it drowns me when
there’s no air to breathe

and the ocean’s been good
good to me
though it’s got nothing
to do with me

summer breeze

where in the forest
do you hide?
do you hide
from me?
or the color
and the light
of the sky?

wrong again
everything comes to an end

a summer breeze
won’t take me again
if it’s so that it takes me
the places I go
to the places I’ve already been

where among the trees
did you climb?
did you climb
on me?
to the top just because you are free?

wrong again
everything comes down to her again

a summer breeze
won’t take me again
if it’s so that it takes me
the places I go
to the places I’ve already been

to the places I’ve already been

unto death
any time I go out in this weather
I better cover my eyes
if I don’t see it, believe or feel it
I can have peace of mind

what does it mean to be seen by
a million lingering eyes in the sand?
any time I find doubts in my mind
they have my changes banned

how can you tell me I am every
bit as good as anyone else

how do you speak
with your tongue
in your cheek?
maybe I’m losing myself?

though maybe I’m right in the darkest of night
maybe I’m losing myself?

any time I find doubts in my mind
they try to fight it with love

Adolescence ‒ Side B


tiden flyr
tiden flyr, den flyr forbi
hengir seg til den som byr
jeg løper bare rundt i ring
jeg sier ingenting

lady of the mud
I left my heart out here
where rain erodes the fear
how dark the shadows in light
how it pours from clouds of white

how’d I get cold from a story told
with only the warmth of the lady of the mud

how the coast would love
to drag me from my home
and pull me down below
to show me all I know

how it dragged me and drank my blood
and how I frightened the lady of the mud

buried in between
the seams of broken dreams
I indulge in tearing up
the bulging threads of luck

the dark I consume blooms form the bud
until I believe in the lady of the mud

the drowning crept on in
and lead me in
and it let me boast
that I always hear the coast

so I sowed and I stopped the flood
no word ever uttered by the lady of the mud

curtains
everyone grows old I know
I’m hardly like the rest
asking questions cold «and oh,
you better pass the test»

but here and now
I’m leaning for a bow
the curtains are my own
this time around

everyone is so enthralled
with being in control
they’ll be growing old,
in pars, and playing out their roles

but here and now
I’m leaning for a bow
the curtains are my own
this time around

caroline
I can feel you
digging, nesting
in between my lungs

but you told me «honey,
I’ve dreamt of love,
but I was made to run»

you put my life on hold
Caroline, Caroline
I wanted it all
Caroline, Caroline,
But you stand so tall
Caroline, Caroline

I could leave you,
but I bent the fence
around and in between us

and I guess it never
gets any easier
when you’re dreaming

you put my life on hold
Caroline, Caroline
I wanted it all
Caroline, Caroline,
but you stand so tall
Caroline, Caroline

running
till I run out of steam
«and play right»
you said so softly to me
and when I
come home I’ll finally know
that flowers
don’t always mean to grow

I put my life on hold
for Caroline, Caroline
I wanted it all
for Caroline, Caroline
didn’t think I’d fall
for Caroline, Caroline

halls
leave me here
it doesn’t even matter
I’ll forget it tomorrow

and I can’t recall
the white of these halls
this feels nothing like home
this doesn’t feel like anything at all

and hide away
a month or a day
I won’t notice either way

gone at the break of dawn
I walk in endless halls

broken/beaten
just like before I have opened my door
with an arm so broken and beaten

it might take a while ‘fore I learn to decide
between you and the fault in my breathing

you’ll stare through the cores of my eyes
and again I’m alone
and that might not take long

I could write you a thousand songs,
but by the time this one’s done
you’ll already be gone

with the whispering turn of time
I can watch your closing eyes

then simply be locked away
from these simple days
and the light of the morning

I could speak too little, too much
and you’d leave in a rush
and that might not take long

I could write you a thousand songs,
but by the time this one’s done
you’ll already be gone

if you could hold me in the dark of the night
if you could hold a little longer this time

tid forbi
flyter i og flyr forbi
hus og fjell og drømmer i
en rastløshet jeg vet at nå
slipper tak, men aldri går bort

jeg løper rundt og rundt i ring
fanger halen/ingenting
jeg løper løpsk på egen sti
tid forbi er tid i tvil
