Lene Marlin Whatever It Takes

Tell me I’m wrong

You see, I’ve heard this thing about you

Some sad stories about you

I look at you know

As always, you’re keeping a straight face

Acting like, like you truly love this place

(but) you see, I’m told that the place that you long for

Is where the shadows won’t dance on your walls anymore

Where the nightmares will leave you alone

I’ll keep the lights out, I’ll tell you fairy tales

Whatever it takes to make you feel safe

I promise you now, they will disappear

I’ll take you back home, they won’t find you there

Tell me I’m wrong

You see, I’ve heard this thing about you

Some sad stories about you

Please, understand

I need you to tell me the truth now

No more hiding or lies now

I’ll keep the lights out, I’ll tell you fairy tales

Whatever it takes to make you feel safe

I promise you now, they will disappear

I’ll take you back home, they won’t find you there

I’ll keep the lights out, I’ll tell you fairy tales

Whatever it takes to make you feel safe

I promise you now, they will disappear

I’ll take you back home, they won’t find you there

Lene Marlin Everything’s Good

(mmm)

You kiss my lips

And say goodnight

You take my hand

Turn of the light

I hear you breath

I love that sound

I feel soo safe with you around

And I never tought I’d feel it

Never tought I’d see it

Wanna be much better than before

I was thinking I deserve this

Always I deserve this

Well I just don’t do that anymore

I watch you sleep

I sometimes do

I close my eyes

and think of you

I fall asleep

You’re still with me

I feel as great as I can be

And I never tought I’d feel it

Never tought I’d see it

Wanna be much better than before

I was thinking I deserve this

Always I deserve this

Well I just don’t do that anymore [x3]

Lene Marlin One Year Ago

She’s walking there alone,

No one by her side

She manages to fight the tears, but

The pain inside

She can’t hide

And all the tears she’s cried

The moment she closes her eyes, she starts

Thinking of you

The dreams that she had one time

Have gone away

Will they ever come true?

All she needs is: all she needs is you

And she wishes today

Was one year ago

When you cared so much for her

And loved her so

Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you

Cause the love that you shared: it was true

You never thought about it,

What you made her feel

You promised you’d stay together,

But the hope she once had: so unreal

All she needs is: all she needs is you

And she wishes today

Was one year ago

When you cared so much for her

And loved her so

Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you

Cause the love that you shared: it was true

Lene Marlin Come Home

I just want to lock the door

Leave it all outside

Turn off all the lights

I just want to hide

Don’t bother look for me

Not even sure that you would

So I don’t have to tell

I’m not feeling well these days

Just give me directions

I’ll go anywhere

I need to find something

I cannot find here

Just give me a chance

And I’ll prove that you’re wrong

I’ll manage so fine

I can be strong

And maybe I wanna come home

Then maybe I wanna come home

I just want to stay in bed

Stay right here for now

Left here with my thoughts

I don’t know how

How to face another day

I’m not ready for it yet

So I don’t have to show

That I’m not okay this way

Just give me directions

I’ll go anywhere

I need to find something

I cannot find here

Just give me a chance

And I’ll prove that you’re wrong

I’ll manage so fine

I can be strong

And maybe I wanna come home

Then maybe I wanna come home

Lene Marlin My Lucky Day

Tell me what you saw that was so bad

Tell me all the reasons

Why you made me so sad

I wish that I was like you,

And I’m sorry that I’m not

At least I still have hope,

I guess that’s all I’ve got

I know you must be happy

Thrilled that I’m not there

Yet I know that I will make it,

Make it good for me out here

And soon I will be smiling,

Everything will be okay

I’ll not worry anymore,

that will be my lucky day

I wish that you’d seen something

Special ’bout me too

That you would think of something else,

Not just the way I look to you

I don’t see what you see,

How different can I be

And why does it really matter,

I’m just being me

I know you must be happy

Thrilled that I’m not there

Yet I know that I will make it,

Make it good for me out here

And soon I will be smiling,

Everything will be okay

I’ll not worry anymore,

that will be my lucky day

Lene Marlin Unforgivable Sinner

Kinda lose your sense of time

‘Cause the days don’t matter no more

All the feelings that you hide

Gonna tear you up inside

You hope she knows you tried

Follows you around all day

And you wake up soaking wet

‘Cause between this world and eternity

There is a face you hope to see

You know where you’ve sent her

You sure know where you are

You’re trying to ease off

But you know you won’t get far

And now she’s up there

Sings like an angel

But you can’t hear those words

And now she’s up there

Sings like an angel

Unforgivable Sinner

You’ve been walking around in tears

No answers are there to get

You won’t ever be the same

Someone cries and you’re to blame

Struggling with a fight inside

Sorrow you’ll defeat

The picture you see it won’t disappear

Not unpleasant dreams or her voice you hear

You know where you’ve sent her

You sure know where you are

You’re trying to ease off

But you know you won’t get far

And now she’s up there

Sings like an angel

But you can’t hear those words

And now she’s up there

Sings like an angel

Unforgivable Sinner

Maybe one time lost

But now you’re found

Stand right up before

You hit the ground

Maybe one time lost

But now you’re found

Stand right up before

You hit the ground – hit the ground

You know where you’ve sent her

You sure know where you are

You’re trying to ease off

But you know you won’t get far

And now she’s up there

Sings like an angel

But you can’t hear those words

And now she’s up there

Sings like an angel

Unforgivable Sinner

Lene Marlin Story

I heard about your story from a friend

To let go and make an end, that’s what you did

You left some words saying now it would be good

You knew they’d cry, but you hoped they understood

Things you’ve had to face, what you have seen

To make it through each day, you tried,

Without the tears

They tried to help, but they didn’t see you crawl

They knew you fought, but they never

Thought you’d fall

They never thought you’d fall.

Tell them please, how could they know

Hurts inside, no scars to show

You played the lead, and never once you failed

And the place from where you watch us now

Hope you’ve found your peace somehow,

Peace somehow

I heard about your story through the years

Know ’bout all your hurt and fears

I won’t forget

I wrote a song that I wish for you to hear

It’s about yourself and the life you couldn’t bear

Tell them please, how could they know

Hurts inside, no scars to show

You played the lead, and never once you failed

And the place from where you watch us now

Hope you’ve found your peace somehow,

Peace somehow

I wanna remember all there’s about you,

And I know there’s so much

I see all the faces, the tears and embraces

Wish you could be here to see it too

Lene Marlin Another Day

Lie to me, say that you need me

That’s what I wanna hear

That is what, what makes me happy

Hoping you’ll be near

All this time, how could I know

Within these walls, I can feel you

Another day goes by, will never know just wonder why

You made me feel good, made me smile

I see it now, and I, can say it’s gone

That would be a lie

Cannot control this, this thing called love

You must think, how can this be

You don’t really know me

I can’t tell, this ain’t the time

You’ll never be mine

What can I say, something ’bout my life

I just lost again

Another day goes by, will never know just wonder why

You made me feel good, made me smile

I see it now, and I, can say it’s gone

That would be a lie

Cannot control this, this thing called love

Always have to move on,

To leave it all behind

Go along with time

Another day goes by, will never know just wonder why

You made me feel good, made me smile

I see it now, and I, can say it’s gone

That would be a lie

Cannot control this, this thing called love

Lene Marlin Where I’m Headed

I’ve got a suitcase in my hand

Filled with stuff most precious to me

Sidewalk brings my feet

Wherever they’re headed.

There is no directions given

Just some trust in human mind to rely on

And to hold on to.

Honestly don’t know where I’ll end up at last

Won’t even count the days.

One thing I sure know I won’t move so fast

My mind in complete haze.

I pass by

Don’t dare to stop

When there’s someone I see

There’s no one here but me

I’m fooled by something inside my head.

If I lay down now

I might seem kinda dead

Just keep on wasting time.

Scary thoughts and frightening sounds

In my mind still I try avoid it

Heading through this hope not one-way alley

I can’t really sense my surroundings

Seems to be all dark around.

Nothing there, to lighten up my way.

Honestly don’t know where I’ll end up at last

Won’t even count the days.

One thing I sure know I won’t move so fast.

My mind is complete haze.

I pass by

Don’t dare to stop

When there’s someone I see

There’s no one here but me

I’m fooled by something inside my head

If I lay down now

I might seem kinda dead

Just keep on wasting time.

Lene Marlin Blanket In A Park

Wish I could lay down beside you

On a blanket in a park somewhere

With some music and some wine maybe

Your gentle arms around me

I wouldn’t wish for anything more

except that time would stand still

And I pretend

You were mine

And you’d never ever leave

And I would make you feel

The only place to be

Is where there’s music, some wine and me

What if I could hold your hand and kiss you

And you’d feel nothing except we felt this right

You’d forget about time and spend the night

There, on a blanket in a park

And I pretend

You were mine

And you’d never ever leave

And I would make you feel

The only place to be

Is where there’s music, some wine and me

And I pretend

You were mine

And you’d never ever leave

And I would make you feel

The only place to be

Is where there’s music, some wine and me

And I pretend

You were mine

And you’d never ever leave

And I would make you feel

The only place to be

Is where there’s music, some wine and me
