The Glass Child Sweden

Im an organized mess.I believe in the future,for Ive seen yesterday and Im still alive.When I was 18 I left everything I knew and moved all on my own to London to create the life I wanted to live & find the person I wanted to be. I learned how to build my home in my music and my words. When I sing or write, I'm not scared anymore. I believe in writing your own story,and that's what Im doing here. ... more

Track Name: White Spaces
Just one year ago everything was growing inside
Packed up months ago, it is getting harder each time
I think I hear you now, turning as a calling reach out
All is going wild, I can’t even get through the night

Where did you go, our love, it felt so right
Now I can’t get you off my mind
It’s spinning like a circle and I keep walking outside

Maybe if I touched you right
Maybe I can put up a fight
Baby, did I hold you too tight?
Well, not tonight

Verse 2
I get home too late, life is getting busy at day
I keep my schedule up, filling it with meetings and stuff
but now it’s fall again, hearing voices sing through the night
where are you off my friend, maybe you could love me again?

Pre-Chorus
Where did you go, my love, it felt so right
now I can’t get you off my mind
it’s spinning like a circle and I keep walking outside

Chorus
Maybe if I touched you right
Maybe I could put up a fight
Baby, did I hold you too tight?

MID8
Did you know I sleep on the floor every night on my own to try
to not turn around just to find no one there, you know
you get used to the lack of the person you want the most
it’s like a friend in the dark and he’s singing you to sleep

Pre-Chorus
Where did you go, our love, it felt so right
now I can’t get you off my mind
it’s spinning like a circle and I keep walking outside

Well, maybe if I touched you right
And maybe I could put up a fight
Baby, did I hold you too tight?

Maybe if I touched you right
Maybe I could put up a fight
Baby, did I hold you too tight?
Not tonight
Track Name: Sister
Oh when the wind comes in
pull our time
oh on my knees I went
when you cross my mind
and so the seasons ride
so I fall behind
and when the wind comes in
I cross your mind

oh oh oh ohohohoh

so tell me now is it true, spend some time think it through
all the things I dreamt but didn’t do
and that night, by the moon, i could never believe
so it shone to testify the truth
but if you take me back to the start
do you really want to be the thorn in my heart
and if you take me back to the start i would never break your heart
i would never let us part

if you if you if you

brother
where are you
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh ahhhhh

christmas lights in my window watching walk the line
like we did 2002
christmas lights in my window, Lucy in the sky,
like a daughter ought to do,

take me to that place where they said i lost my grace
the day i split my childhood into two
take me to that place i took my necklace off that day
I made a wish, i always wish for you

Take me back to the start I would never break your heart
i would never let us part
Take me back to the start I would never let us part

tell me oh octave up tell me now oh oh

I’ll be fine I’ve been down before
i’ll be fine we’ve bene lost before
Track Name: Black Rose
Fell over something
Hell over nothing
Down on my kneed

I’ve got a secret
written in me

Now you’ve got somebody
lying next to you
Does she feel like me?

Finger tips running
Eyes over darkness
Keep it, you’ll se

That you can push a little few steps too far
I know in the dark, it’s hard to see
But man, you’ve done me wrong
I’ve been so patiently waiting

CHORUS
Tell me are you coming back?
I’m slowly turning into someone I never would want you to see me as
The lady dressed black, smoking at the bar in the back,
watching the teenage show
Maybe I got my life back tonight
Keep it a secret, boy,
My man took a leave on me
My man is out there running free

VERSE
Lazy excuses, hiding my bruises,
Tearing the seems, I’m torn
I hate I need you, I just can’t leave you

But you’ve got somebody
thinking I can’t see
how you’re slipping away from me
Baby don’t do this, I don’t want nobody else,
You were always gonna be the end of me

CHORUS

Mid8
And every time you left me waiting I always knew you’d never come back
still I stayed up
I’m drinking you away, a bottle every day, I got it bad bad boy
I think I’m going crazy
But what’s so bad with that?

I guess that she could love you more,
My man took a leave on me
Track Name: Time, It Goes
Oh here comes the tide again
making space to fill it up again
if you’re looking out the window
to look back at this time of friends
oh if you’re looking out the window
know I still smile for you my friend

oh here comes the night again
Making ripples on my walls within
so I sigh and look out the window
hope to find you there again
I sigh and look out the window
maybe one day we’ll meet again

So we’ll turn and we’ll make our stories
the tale is told and we’ll sail ahead
battles fought and the devil’s longing
and I relate it to us again
we might find our ways together
or I’ll keep you within my heart
know that no matter where you all love
I will miss you though oceans apart

so there was the sun again
slipping quickly from one side to end
I just sit here across the table
so much space now that no one’s left
I just sit here across the table
think of love that has not found me yet

Maybe next time that I see you
we can love like we’ve never done
I’ll hold tightly to the eather
we’ll say goodbye when we feel it’s time
’cause seasons come, then they get rough, love
maybe soon we will drift apart
but this time, it is ours to keep, love
so let’s use what we’ve got
