COLOURS
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Flowers - smiling at the sun
And waving - laughing at the wind
And living together
In colours - always at peace

Rainbow - you always give me hope
Of tomorrow - a new day will be born
So full of treasures
In colours - always at peace

How can it be
And why don't we
Want to be free
So why do we see
Everything in black
Or everything in white
When colours are all we need

Colours are flashing for my eyes
In rem sleep where fantasy come true
And your land - and my land
Are colouring peaceful

Hate me, or love me if you will
But paint me with colours that will win
Your smile and laughter
Your childlike desires
Your soul in fire
Colour me blind

How can it be

LAND OF OZ
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

She's so fine
She won't be mine
She comes from the land of Oz

I looked into her eyes
I couldn't see no lies
She must be Ms.Disguise
I felt her on my cheek
Her lips were so uniqe
I've never been so weak


REF::

I've been searching every night
Won't give up without a fight
I'll be her shining knight
And then she came to me
I fell on my knees
I didn't see her flee

REF:: Bridge:
She's so fine - she garbles my rhyme
She can't be far from divine
Where shall we dine? O' Give me a sign!
Always be mine…..

I NEED YOU
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

I could say - I need you
I should say that - I love you
I would say - I'll be with you
But I don't say anything…

I must be blinded not to see
What's going o-o-o-o-on with me
Why don't I dare to face what's real
To say what's in my heart

I need you - I love you
I need you - I'll always do
I need to find a way - before it's too late

I am afraid to say what I feel because…
Then I have to lay down all my fences
And I'll be standing naked in front of you
So I don't do anything…

I must be blinded not to see
What you think o-o-o-o-of me
Why can't I face reality
And tell you what I feel

I need you - I love you
I need you - I'll always do
I need to find a way - before it's too late

.....

LIKE I AM
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

How many times have I been wrong?
How many days have I been gone?
How many words have I been told?
I don't know - oo - I don't know

How many times have I been lost?
How many lines have I crossed?
How many times have I been found?
I don't know - no - I don't know

You say that you love me like I am
And I don't need to change at all - no
You say that you love me like I am
I - I don't deserve you at all

How many times have I denied
How many egoes are in my mind
Too many times am I a jerk
O well - ye - I know

You say that you love me like I am
And I don't need to change at all - no
You say that you love me like I am
And - I don't deserve you at all

.....

FINALLY FOOLISH
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

When I was a boy
I did believe
Grownups were foolish
I'm much wiser now

Now I know - how it feels
To be the greatest fool there is

I would not have a job
I should play every minute
I would go to an island
And live on the beach

I did not realize - how it felt
To go to work everyday -
To be able to pay
For the food on the kitchen table

And no-ow that I know
Finally I'm a fool - finally I'm foolish - finally grownup
And no-ow that I know - it's foolish

I should be a dad
With a lot of kids around
We should lie on our backs on the ground
And gaze at stars at night

But - I didn't know - time's not on my side
Days turn to weeks
And the seasons fly by
And there's no time for stargazing

REF…

Or maybe I'm not… not a fool
Maybe I am not
Maybe I'm not a fool
Maybe I 'm not foolish
Maybe just grownup

Or maybe I'm not… not a fool

FLY LITTLE ROBIN
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Fly little robin
Don't wait for me
Daddy'll be home real soon
Fly little robin
Don't wait for me
Everything will be al'right
When daddy's home

I fell so hard
I broke my wing
I can't pretend
That I'll fly again
I can't tell my son that
He needs to be home and safe

REF

I know the red
Is just nearby
I saw him there
I'm afraid to die
I can't tell my son that
He needs to be home and safe

REF

I lie quite still
Playing dead
If it is Gods will
I will fool the red
I will tell my son that
When I am home and safe

DEAR GRANDMA
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

You take me down to wonderland
You lead me all the way
You hold me gently in my hand and
You say:

"You are making me so proud
I hope you know that well"
You make me wanna shout out loud:
It's swell:

You are my friend - dear grandma
You spoil me away dear grandma - and I

I do - I do - I do adore you
I do - I do - I do adore you
More - I do adore
I do - I do - I do adore you
I do - I do - I do adore you
More and more - I do adore you

When you look into my eyes
I always have to smile
You are being very nice
All the time

You are my friend - dear grandma
You spoil me away dear grandma - and I

I do - I do - I do adore you
I do - I do - I do adore you
More - I do adore
I do - I do - I do adore you
I do - I do - I do adore you
More and more - I do adore you

BYE BYE RAIN
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Won't you come and join me at the café
I've got a table at the pavement, they
claim to have the best lattè ever made - I'll pay

The table is dandy and the view is fine
But you are even better, cause you're nearly mine
But then some raindrops kill the thrill - like latte with a chill

Bye bye rain, bye bye rain
Don't love me - Do leave me
Don't you deceive me,
you make me look insane
(2:Don't you love me no more - Give me sun again)

I am not a man who tend to give up
I always finish my coffecup
And I will be back by bike or boat, inviting you to float…

So please take a seat and enjoy the ride
And I will be happy, at least for a while
The sun is shining and you are bright, but who turned off the light?

REF

Break: Byebyebyebye byebye byebyebye baby…

Maybe I'll by me a ticket to the moon
Just to escape from the awful monsoon
Or maybe a tiny umbrella will do - then I'm close to you….

I LIKE U ALOT
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Don't you know
How fine you are
Don't you know
How bright you are
Well - somebody might tell you that I lie

I only tell you what I see in you

Will U not believe what I say to you
Will U not believe what I say o - it's true (ey?)
I like - I like U alot yeah

Don't you know
That you are loved
Don't you know
You mean a lot
You make me joyful inside, when you
When you meet me
I only tell you what I feel for you

REF::

How can I make you see you like I do - do you know
Please try on my glasses - try them on - aa

Do believe - do believe what I say to you
Do believe - do believe what I say cause it's true
I like….

WONDERFUL DAYS
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Sunshine or thunder I don't care, no
Raindrops can hit me anywhere, oh
I don't mind cause
I'm in delight
Having dinner with you
tonight

Wonderful days
In so many ways
Being with you is great
Wonderful days
In so many ways
Just being with you right here

Mountain river floating by so slow
I can nearly see the heather grow
I do like it here
Having coffee with you
My dear

So - pour me another cup
Fill up to the top
I'll say when
Don't you ever stop

NOW is the time to be seized
Relax - enjoy the feast

REF

.....

YOUR EYES
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Your eyes - your bright eyes
Wake up my eyes - right now
Your eyes - your bright eyes
Smile at my eyes - again

I am lying in my bed fast asleep
While you are far ahead, of me
And I am dreaming of a spider with nine legs
And you are saving me from dying in a web

With…

REF:

Every little bone in my body aches
And every little muscle cries
I have been so far away from you but
You are just an inch from my face…

With…

REF:

In your eyes - I am diving
In your eyes -I fall
In your eyes -I m floating
In your eyes - in your eyes I drown

I RIDE
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

I've been alone for a while
I have been dreaming of you
Still I believe it's a lie -
…or is it true?

I see your face everywhere
Your things are in my room
Still, I am smelling your hair
Is it you….?

I won't believe that your gone
I can't imagine why
My head will explode, I must run
Or I die…

I ride - I ride on
I ride - now I'm gone x2
(Now I'm gone)

I've been on the run for a while
I don't dare to stop
My mind is filled with your smile
Until I drop…

How can I live without you
How can I go where you go
Why do I need to be blue
I don't know

I won't believe that your gone
I can't imagine why
Give me a reason to live -
or let me die

SHE'S SO ALONE
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

She's so alone
When mum and daddy broke up
Something broke in her too
They didn't see her
She was nearly invisible to them

They never saw her tattoo
A little robin in red and blue
They never saw her hairdo -
Turn into black..

She's so shy
When her boyfriend broke up
He told a lie
And they believed him
How could she have a friend
A boy - at all

And then she felt like crazy
And they all called her dopey and lazy
She could have been a daisy, daisy daisy

How can she ever mend what's broken
Is there a glue?
When the dark night crawls upon her
will she fight? … or resign?

I'm no good
I want to help
But I don't know how
How I should
Make her relate to someone new

And I want to leap the canyon
And I want to reach out and
SCREAM to cause an avalanche
Still she is so alone…

.....

FIRE
Av Øystein Nybøe 2009

Why do you leave me
Why do you cry
Why do your eyes burn
When you say goodbye

Fire in your eyes now
Fire in your soul
Fire in my heart
When you say you'll go
Fire in my eyes now
Fire in my soul
Fire in my heart
When you say you'll go

We had a good thing
We had it swell
You played on my strings
And you played so well

Then I can't understand why
Then I can't comprehend
Why you have to leave my
World, is this the end?

REF

I WANT TO LIVE

You say I can't, make my songs
You say I can't, I'm not that good
You say I should - not believe that
I'm better than you - I don't
But I want to live
You say it's sad - I sing so bad
You say they won't, play my song
You say I should - not step forward
and show my face - I don't
But I want to live
Everybody has the right to be someone
if they could
And everybody has the right to live
in the neighbourhood
Everybody's talented and gifted and good -
in their own ways - in many ways
You take it for a fact that I can't
follow my dreams
they are unreal - and so it seems

They are big, hairy, fluffy and pointless means
Led a man to the moon -
And that's bibbeli dooddeli babbedi BOO
But I want to live
You say my dreams won't come true
You say reality teach us to
not to believe in happiness or fantasy
I disagree
You say nobody - cares for me
You say noone - can, teach from me
You say I'm no good -
You say I can't do anything
I can
I'm as good, as I am -
I fill me to the top - from the bottom and up
I want to live and
To live is what I really want
I do

SOMEONE LIKE U

From Harry to Hermione

If I find that girl she'll be kind like you
and nice like you and fine like you
If I find that girl she will talk like you,
and walk like you with a smile

When I find someone like you
I will be free I will be free
When I find someone like you
I will be free I will be free

When I find that girl I will be so gentle,
be so quiet, be so glad
When I find that girl she will be like you,
and I'll be like you too

When I find someone like you
I will be free I will be free
When I find someone like you
I will be free I will be free

You inspire me, you give me hope
You say you believe in me and in my powers
Hermione, I will find a girl like you
Who sees me as I am

When I find someone like you
I will be free I will be free
When I find someone like you
I will be free I will be free

.....

TAKE MY HAND

Take my hand - little girl
And I'll lead you back to your home
Don't cry, don't cry no more.
I will follow you all
the way back to your mum
Let's hope we find her at home

Take your hand in mine and walk with me
Take your hand in mine and talk to me
I will be your friend

You were five, I was six
but I felt much older than that
Like ten or nine at least

I could guide you through
the crowds as safe as a guard
And I could cross the streets

Take your hand in mine…

So sad, so sad
So sad that we don't know the way
So sad, so sad
So sad that we don't know the way

So sad, so sad
The way back home oh oh no
The way back home
I hope we find the way before it's dark

Take your hand in mine…

.....

A LITTLE BIT

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 -
10 roses I gave to you last night
You were surprised - Why should I
Give it to you on a Tuesday at eleven o'clock

One, two - I will show I love you
Three, four and five, six - I wanna give you a kiss
Seven, eight, nine - I am yours and you are mine
Around the world ten times and back again

A little bit of peace
A little bit of love and
A little bit of happiness
A little bit is all that it takes -
right now

Mostly, life isn't weekends or fiests
Life is the minutes in beetween

If everyday was a holiday - how would it be
When should we feel free -
and relax from a hard day at work

A little bit of peace
A little bit of love and
A little bit of happiness
A little bit is all that it takes -
right now

Therefore, I want to paint the days
I want them blue, red or pink
Not only black, white or grey
Every day can be much brighter by
Doing the small things that matter the most

A little bit of peace
A little bit of love and
A little bit of happiness
A little bit is all that it takes -
right now

.....

MISS U

I came to you every day
You came to me every night
We went for picnic in May
In June we started a fight

July I stayed in all day
You lied and said you were away
I lied back and said I found someone new
But every night I had nightmares 'bout you

I miss U
I miss U in the morning rain
I miss U when the rain is gone

I'm done being so week
Without you I'm not complete
I will kill all my lies
You'll see I can be so nice

Right now I'll give you a call
Or else I drop dead and fall
So please answer your phone

I'll say I'm sorry I hurt you

I miss U …

A aiiaa Give me one more chance - I beg you
A aiiaa I love you
A aiiaa Can't you please forgive me
A aiiaa I love you

I miss U …

.....

ANGEL

An angel came to me that night
I was blinded by her light
She told me that she could see
Me, and that she'd set me free

I cried all night in angels light
And she joined me in my fight
And by dawn - then I could see
Me, and that she'd set me free

When she came to me
would I have been free
If she hadn't seen me then
I guess - not

The angel flew and I was fine
She had mended wounds of mine
I was glad she'd chosen me
Me, and that she'd set me free

When she came to me …

And now I sail away
Living my new life as best as I can
Hopefully we'll meet again
Oh my dear angel - oh my dear friend

When you came to me
then you set me free
Cause you saw me as I am
when you came to me
then you set me free
Cause you saw me as I am
Now I see it - too

.....

FLY ME TO THE MOUNTAIN

Fly me to the mountain
I want to see the top
Fly me through the sky now
I want to see it all

Everytime you talk to me,
you smile a secret smile at me
You make me feel like I'm al'right
You wonder how I am, and I say
thank you, I feel fine now
When I'm with you I can fly

Fly me to the mountain …

You sat down with me
And had a cup of coffee with me
You gave me that smile again
I smiled back and said
I pretiate the time you give me
When I'm with you I can fly

Fly me to the mountain
You let me see the top
Fly me through the sky now
You let me see it all

Thank you for
Thank you for
Seeing me
Thank you for
Thank you for
Being you

Fly me to the mountain …

.....

TO THE BEACH

We sit inside
waiting for the rain to stop
Hoping there'll be sun
We make our plans
what we'll do when work is done
Hoping they'll come true
You ask me to
take you to the sunny beach
I say that I'll do
when holiday comes

Take me to the beach, out in the sun
And I will be yours forever
Take me to the beach, out in the sun
And I will be yours forever

It's sad outside
the wind is blowing dust away
I stare at the clouds
You come to me
trying to cheer me up a bit
You say it won't be long
You ask me to
take you to the sunny beach
I say that I'll do
when holiday comes

Take me to the beach …

.....

WE CAN DO IT

I have tried to climb
But I fall every time
I have tried to dive
But I smash in the surface
You say I have to dare to fail
Then I'll succeed - yeah

You can do it, you can do it
I can do I can do it
You can do it I can do it
We can do it, we can do it
We can if we want to, if we dare to, if we try
We can, can

Yes, I dare to fail
I have failed a hundred times
For every step I fail
I come a little further
I love to do the things I can't
Then I can't fail - no no no

You can do it, you can do it … .....

I WILL

I will walk on a narrow path
I will drive on a wide road
I will swim in a mountainlake
I will dive in the ocean
I will come to you every night
I will walk from you every morning
I will gently brush your hair
I will yell and scream to you

I can't deside what I'm to do with you
I'm so confused that I can't choose
I want the best of all the worlds I know
Maybe then I will have nothing -
Nothing at all

I will walk on a narrow path …

I can't deside what I want for me
I'm so confused that I can't see
I have the best of all the worlds I know
Maybe that's why I have nothing -
Nothing at all

I will walk on a narrow path …

.....

WELL WELL

Well, I made a smashing popsong
I even paid for all the expenses
But every major record company
Told me - I had to be seventeen - at most
Well, well - How was I to know

As an artist I have to be special
But still I need to be mainstream
I really should be looking like Britney
And sing like Frank Sinatra
With high heels
Well well - how was I to know

I sent my song to the radio
They told me the song was to jazzy
They only played nr1 hits
And besides I wasn't trashy - enough
Well, well - How was I to know
Pump it up

Well, this is a trashy popsong based on hits
I even added some spicy keywords in it:
Candy shop, hit me baby one more time,
like a prayer, yellow submarine, be bop a lula,
OK, let's jazz it down

Lonely, love me tender,
Help, I'm caught in the middle
Imagine, Waterloo
Purple rain and Moulin Rouge - beat it
Well, well, sounds like a melody
Well, well, sounds like a song to me
Well, well, sounds like a hit to me .....

DANCE WITH ME

Am I awake, or not - or am I dreaming, or what
Can this be - as real as it seems, or not
I can feel your warm hand in mine
I can smell your perfume so fine
Dance with me (baila con migo)
Let me hold you (baila con migo)
Close to me, tonight

Why would you dance - with me
Have I got a chance - with you
Ask me to leave with you
And I will be there for you
Dance with me (baila con migo)

.....

I WON'T GO

I won't be here alone without you
I will stay with you - and I will leave with you
I won't be told those painful lies
I want the truth - I want to hold 'round you
Keep on believe in me - trust my words
You always tell me when I've been hurt
What can I do - I can't deny your love

Cause I trust your words when I've been hurt

How many years will it take
Till you trust my faith
How many times do I have to proove
How many bridges to build
How many rivers to cross
How many times do I have to stay

You're gone to buy a bird,
you need to talk to someone
You forget about me at your side
I won't go no, I won't leave you alone
even though our love is without hope

I won't go away from you my girl
I won't leave you alone my chosen one

Why does it have to be so painful to love,
beeing loved and taken care of
Why do these young hearts fall in love
without even knowing why

How many years will it take … I won't go away from you my girl
I won't leave you alone my chosen one

.....

GODS LOVE IS AMAZING

He holds my hand
And guides me on my way
He never leaves me alone
And he shows me the light in the dark
Because he sees what I can't

God's love is amazing
Always very warm and bright
God's love is amazing
Always very warm and bright

When I was down
He made me stand tall again
And he gave me His love
And I had never seen before
That anyone could lift me that high

God's love is amazing
Always very warm and bright
God's love is amazing
Always very warm and bright
