Either Way I Think You Know

In a way I think you know (Angelskår)

 

You taught me once, you taught me twice

How to lose myself

And though it sounded awfully nice

There is no escape

 

You can’t pretend when you’re afraid

So you play by rules

And though it takes you somewhere safe

It’s just so damn uncool

 

And in a way I think you know

 

I’ve got this anger, I’ve got this spite

And it drives me mad

I’ve got this fear that it might grow

Into something bad

 

And in a way I think you know

Either way I think you know

 

 

Song for Sybil (Angelskår)

 

A star burned out today

In the middle of the play

When the curtains rose she was longing for the dark

Folding out her heart

 

She wasn’t made for life, my friend

Love is but a mask we’re carrying

The spell was broken when you let him change your ways

When you left your soul backstage

 

She was a Juliet at heart

Merely acting out her part

She never really lived so she never really died

But she can never be denied

 

A star burned out today

In the middle of the play

When the curtains rose she forgot about her lines

And this time she spoke her mind

For you

 

 

To let go (of that load) (Angelskår)

 

She was told to come with an open mind

Just don’t meet his eyes and you’ll be fine

She thought she heard him asking: «where you been?»

Knowing that this time he’d let her in

 

But if I told you what I know

Would you be able to let go

 

Eighteen, baby it’s such a shame

In the pinetree by the porch her name is engraved

And you won’t believe the things she would do for love

They found her lying face down in the snow

 

And if I told you what I know

Would you be able to let go

And if I told you what I know

Would you be able to let go

 

Eighteen, barefoot on his porch

Smiling like she’s never done before

Arms stretched out, she’s ready to depart

Whatever hit her, man it did her harm

 

And if I told you what I know

Would you be able to let go

And if I told you what I know

Would you be able to let go

Of that load

 

 

Like someone changed the rules for us (Angelskår)

 

We’re going to have this fight again

We’re going to have this fight again

Don’t know where it starts

But it has no end

We’re going to have this fight again

 

You’re going to hate me for a while

I’ll make you hate me for a while

What is worse, is that I don’t mind

You’re going to have to hate me for a while

 

And I don’t want control of you

I want to know just who I’m talking to

Now it feels like someone changed the rules for us

 

I have this dream and it makes me frown

I’m on a plane and it’s falling down

Hazey thoughts on what you’d leave behind

When you’re no longer around

 

And when you’re back on solid ground

You miss the fear of falling down

There are things I thought I couldn’t lose

They’re of no value to me now

 

And I don’t want control of you

I want to know just who I’m talking to

Now it feels like someone changed the rules for us

 

I’m going to love you till I die

You’re such a big part of my life

And either way you made me proud, so proud

It’s just I can’t remember why

 

I’m going to try and let you go

I’m giving up on you, my love

Give it time, you’re going to be all right

I’m going to meet you down the road

 

But I don’t want control of you

I want to know just who I’m talking to

Now it feels like someone changed the rules for us

 

 

When John passed away (Angelskår)

 

You told me today what I should have known then

Now that I know will you leave me again?

I’ve been travelling around to make time go away

But something just lingers, something just stays

 

Everyone’s talking these days

Like there’s something to prove though there’s nothing to say

Everyone’s talking but you, cause your words don’t come cheap

And your thoughts are of use

 

Remember that night when you and John left the room

You skied on the lake in the light of the moon

Nobody knew untill John passed away

But you saw he was sick and you lit up his face

 

Everyone’s wondering these days

If life is a loan and if love is for sale

Everyone’ wondering but you, cause you rip off the tags

And you don’t care if it’s new

And you don’t mind the price or the market value

 

Baby come over cause this time I’m sure

Bet you’ll laugh at my jokes like you used to before

I’ve been trying to stop thinking but man it’s been hard

If we lower the stakes I might let down my guard

 

Everyone’s talking these days

On how life should be led and how love should be made

Let’s leave the talking alone, fall asleep in my arms

I’ll be watching the door

 

Everyone’s talking these days

So let us be quiet and let us be safe

Let’s leave the talking alone, fall asleep in my arms

I’ll be watching the door

And I won’t be running away anymore

 

 

Dance (Angelskår)

 

I don’t want to be a slave no more

Depending upon your grace

I don’t want to pay the rent no more

And I don’t want to share your taste

 

I just want to dance

 

I don’t want to fake for your sake

I want to break the chain

I don’t want to fake for your sake

want to break the chain

 

I just want to dance

 

I don’t want to hear you out

Don’t want to fit your shoe

I don’t want to have to shout

To get my message through

 

I just want to dance

 

 

Try me (Angelskår)

 

Try me

Try me again now

They say I’m ok now

Nothing is broken, nobody’s hurt

If you try me again I might work

If you try me again I might work

 

Try me

Try me like someone

you can rely on

Someone you could get high on

Somebody sweet

If you try me like that I might work

If you try me like that I might work

 

Try me now

Don’t save me for later

Cause I won’t be able

To work up the courage

To ask you again

If you try me today I might work

If you try me today I won’t hurt

 

 

After tonight (Melody: Sommerstad / Words: Angelskår / Sommerstad)

 

Where will you go my love

After tonight, my love

Who will you lean upon

When the night it circles you in, my love

 

Wish I knew what to save you from

I’d come around just now if you need talking to

You sound so uptight, my love

If I was wrong all along should I hold on to you?

 

When did I lose your love?

At what point did you choose, my love?

I’m not sure what I’m looking for

But it used to be in that smile of yours

 

Wish I knew what to save you from

I’d come around just now if you need talking to

You sound so uptight, my love

If I was wrong all along should I hold on to you?

 

Wish I knew what to save you from

I’d come around just now if you need talking to

You sound like you’re with someone

If I was wrong all along I’m sure somebody knew

If I was wrong all along why do I hold on to you?

 

 

Ready Made (Angelskår)

 

You’re waking up from the dream that they all celebrate

Now you have to deal with all those things you just can’t anticipate

Can’t say you’re sorry

Cause it’s not the right word

Can’t say you worry

Cause it’s not what she overheard

And when you dream you dream of a ready made

 

You’re cute but you belong to another fight

Just want to feel that suspense, see if it goes down right

Can’t say you’re sorry

It just wouldn’t be fair

Can’t say you worry

Cause you don’t, you don’t really care

And when you dream you dream of a ready made

 

And when I stand before you

(Somehow I’m always lost)

And think of times to come

I should have never lost you

Now you’re gone

 

When you try to be sweet you just turn them off

Baby, this aint for real, no this is Rock’n’roll

Can’t say I’m sorry

Cause I said so before

Can’t say I worry

Cause I don’t, I don’t anymore

But when I dream I dream of a ready made

 

 

Either way I think you know (Angelskår)

 

You taught me once, you taught me twice

How to lose myself

And though it sounded awfully nice

There is no escape

 

You can’t pretend when you’re afraid

So you, you play by rules

And though it takes you somewhere safe

It’s just so damn uncool

 

And in a way I think you know

 

Cause there’s one thing I never said

Thought I’d let it go

And though it wouldn’t change a thing

It just grows and grows

 

I’ve got this anger, I’ve got this spite

That I keep pushing back

I’ve got this fear what might come out

If the bottle cracks

 

And in a way I think you know

Either way I think you know

 

There’s a crossing up the road

Soon you’ll see it to

There are two roads you can walk

But you’ll have to choose

The first one is the one you’re on

You just stay with the tracks

The other one I just don’t know

But there is no going back

 

And in a way I think you know

Either way I think you know

 

 

Bloomed and died (Jacob Krogvold)

 

I have ways to make you talk

When I don’t even want to know

You know how to make me feel

Like rolling over slow

But looking at us it would seem

Like all of our intentions could easily meet

When it comes down it’s like a curse

And it gets worse

 

Till even going to bed has to be justified

All kindness has been put aside

There’s no redeeming qualities for you & I

As we have bloomed & died

 

Taking any sense there was

And leaving it behind

This is just a painful way

Way of wasting time

now looking at us it would seem

that I’m just impossible and you are such a Queen

I get absent like a cloud

So you get loud

 

Look at how the shit it has intensified

You were wrong and I have lied

There’s no attempt of reconcile

As we have bloomed and died

 

Till even going to bed has to be justified

All kindness has been put aside

There’s no redeeming qualities for you & I

As we have bloomed & died

 

 

Dorian leaving the table in Rage (No Good) – (Angelskår)

 

My hand is shaking like an old mans hand

I’m trying to keep it still

I’m so dead angry my tears come out as steam

And yet I wonder if the blame’s on me

I try so hard not to hate you now

Not to break you now

But I swear to God that you’re no good

 

You keep telling me how I’m bound to lose

And baby, that might be so

But I aint never tried to make you look bad

Just out of lack of self control

You’re a fire burning out too slow

And more than that I just don’t know

But I swear to God that you’re no good

 

It’s just the evil in me, I suppose

Before I know it I just go off

It’s just the evil in me, I suppose

Before I know it I just go off

You’re a fire burning out too slow

And more than that I just don’t know

But I swear to God that you’re no good

 

I swear to God that you’re no good
