Where Is My Heart

Lyrics by Lene

WHERE IS MY HEART
Written 12.09.2020
C#

Smoke to the sky
Running off with my heart
I stand in sorrow
Left alone in the breeze
Left alone in the breeze

Days passing by
How can we rest ashore
I am weary in my ways
Lookin’ for a place of rest
Lookin’ for a place of rest

Where is my heart
Has it gone to foreign land
Is it safe from destruction
Is it safe from a war
Is it safe from a war

In my deepest worry
I will fall back on your word
That is all I can cling to
On my travels on this earth
On my travels on this earth

Oh I will see you
On that day way up high
It will be a time of glory
It will be my place of rest
It will be my place of rest

A FEW SECONDS MORE
Written 23.10.2020
A

Packin’ my bag for another way
Breaking my spirit kinda broke my day
I would climb too many mountains too many times
Leavin’ behind where I didn’t cope
Losing a life to gain a little hope
When you’re done being stuck you’re ready for a little luck

Refreng
Just like the rodeo Tryin’a hold on a few seconds more
Gettin’ ready for sick ’n’ sore in a little while
Just like wrecking your hand Feeling close to death until it mend
Same old story Different kind’a man 

Letting dirt get my leather boots
My feet’ll keep walking wherever I choose
But everybody knows a little fog can lead you on
Keep watching the sky and maybe you’ll see
The sun emerging to set you free
That’ll be the day of dancin’ the night away

Bridge
Days dreamin’ of horses No enemy in sight
Running off to find a greener patch
Just gotta keep on this bull for a little longer

Refreng

AHEAD

G# (Spiller i G m/Capo 1 band)

Your wooden spoon is gettin’ smaller
And all your friends are gettin’ taller
But it seems like life’s on hold to you
All your brothers keep complainin’
Your mama’s tough and your dad’s explainin’
While you’re woundrin’ how you’re gettin’ through

Refreng
Leaves are falling from the sky
Birds all sing their lullaby
And I can’t wait to get ahead
Ahead of daddy wishing well
Ahead of mamas secret kiss and tell
Ahead of movin’ on

In the kitchen time stands still
While you’re dreamin’ of your next big thrill
Your bowl of soup ain’t comin’ to an end
Water tasts like muddy shoes
The kind you wear then never use …again
Longing for life when you don’t depend

Refreng

Bridge
Your time will come
Time for bills to pay and saving for a home
There will be a day
Longing for your childhood way

BUTTERFLIES
Written 04.10.2020
D

I long for the butterflies The air close to my face
Rising from dirt to the skies Reminds me of grace
Through cities emerging The train takes me away
Can you see the soulful clouds Making my day

Refreng
To the river I’ll go My rest is long needed
I gather to hold Every word
And though I feel weary My heart will rejoice
I long for the butterflies And the sound of your voice

I’ll be climbing a tree Moving ahead
A whole new creation Just like you said
Oh how could I cry When I see your face
Just a bug on the ground Born to amaze

Refreng 

Don’t let go of the words They are light in the darkness
Hidden treasures ashore Setting you free
Like a butterfly rising Letting past go
Morning will wake you And laughter will grow

O where my rainy days at
O where my rainy days at
O where my rainy days at
Come on water my land for me
Come on water my land for me

GIVE ME INDIANA

Refreng
Give me Indiana and I will settle for life
Give me the honor and I’ll be your wife
Travelin’ upstream were dreams all come true
Give me Indiana where the sky’s always blue

American dream leaving roots in my mind
Hope for a better leaving family behind
How will I live Will my roof hold the rain
A shot in the darkness for a new kind of pain

Refreng

Mellomspill

Upriver I’ll go Turn my back to the sun
Leavin’ Dixie behind like a deer on the run
Past Tennessee ‘Cross the Ohio River
T’ward the tall tulip trees and acres of corn

Refreng

Oh how beautiful to me How I feel your grace
Oh how magical America Land of the free

ANOTHER
Written 20.10.2020
C

A thousand circles running over my own mind as I remain
All over trapped inside a sudden idea within a brain
No mind to spare in moving on
No minor gear to shuffle on
Another break please as I breathe another time another where

There is a place inside the now where I can feel the silent minutes as you move
All over what’s to come… Foreseeing how the world will take a breath Take a breath
Now I sing a different song
Now I age while feeling young
Another dragonfly shows up another berry in my cup

Refreng
All the way
Another word could change your day
Running still
Another turn Another hill
Upcoming thrill

Now my age is goin’ ‘head of me
Wrongdoing’s all forgotten in your speech
Though it’s hard to understand
I’m holdin’ on to golden pieces I can reach
Soon I will see a day gone by
Soon there is hope within my eye
Take me to Neverland and
leave me where forever comes along

Refreng
I will run another day I will find another way to make a snowman
Taking memory shots along to create another misty country song May it be long

THERE'S A FIRE IN THE HILLS OF RIVER TOWN
Written 09.10.2020
G

There’s a fire in the hills of river town
Stretching for miles and miles around
It’s a sight if I dare say to see summer fade away
There’s a fire in the hills of river town

There’s a color palette drawn unto the land
Every leaf just like a precious grain of sand
When I see the yellow trees it puts my heart at ease
There’s a color palette drawn unto the land

When you ask me where I’ll be this is the where
Surrounded by the crispy mountain air
I’mma buckle up and go through the land I’ve come to know
When you ask me where I’ll be this is the where

There’s a place close to the river where they lay
My folks from generations away
Some were pore and some were blue
But they’ve all seen the fire too
There’s a place close to the river where they lay
Where the maple's red and and beautiful today

HORSE N HAY
Written 26.09.2020

Fifteen years and feelin’ shy Cowboy lifestyle caught my eye
Surrounded by horses didn't help
I looked up songs on pirate bay named cowboy western horse ’n’ hay
Dreamin’ myself away

My daddy had me all the way and mama did agree
I could get my own dear horse as long as I paid the fee
Luckily the day had come Confirmation got me some
Thousand bucks to go (hold G)

My dream became reality and there we were
Fetching a new best friend all covered in fur
A four year old Norwegian bred Light brown fit ’n’ fed
Dream come true to me

Solo/nynning

A handsome boy with grit ’n’ smile Taking me another mile
Bareback among the southern pines
He taught me how to take a stand Firm ’n’ gentle hand in hand
Made me understand

The rest is like a symphony A tale of him and me
Running free outside the trail (hold «trail»)
Now he’s twenty years and going strong The inspiration to my song
Best friend for years to come

DON'T YOU COME CROSS MY RIVER
Written 16.10.2020
F#

Don’t you come cross my river no Don’t you come cross my river
Don’t you come cross my river no Don’t you come cross my river
I’mma stay my ground as long as is
I’mma stay my ground ’til gone
I’mma keep my feet on this here ground
Nobody gonna move me on
Nobody gonna move me on

Don’t you come here to take my land Don’t you come here no more
Don’t you come here to take my land Don’t you come here no more
We plowed them fields my horse and me
We plowed them big rocks ’til gone
We’ gonna keep on working this land of mine
Workin’ ’til daylight’s gone
Workin’ ’til daylight’s gone

This here land’s gonna be my grave Restin’ on top of me
This here land’s gonna be my grave Restin’ on top of me
Now don’t you cry no velvet tears
I got to live wild and free
On a piece of land that holds my heart
Holds my horse and me
Holds my horse and me

BLACKBERRIES
Written 20.10.2020
A (Spiller i G m/Capo 2 band)

Down this here road comes a place of freedom where
I was risen from my youth
One more lesson learned One more penny earned
And a lifetime to come

PreRef
Among the southern pines I’d run
Swoopin’ dirty floors and having fun

Refreng
Blackberries running wild and free
And that is where I’d like to be; In the breeze of victory
And I can see a growing sunrise as I
Turn my head I smell the southern ocean
Feels like hometown to me

There’s a rope holdin’ pieces of my heart
Though I didn’t stay my ground
I found roots in a foreign land where I
Chose to become forever bound

PreRef
Still when I touch the sometime ‘go
I am back where the wild tulip grow

Refreng

I KNOW

C

Bad takes run past my eye Never meant to make you cry
But I know we will make it through
Your words are getting me Somehow they set me free
And I know my lifetime is you

Refreng
You’re the where I wanna be
You’re the morning I wanna see (My love)

Some days you wake me up A double latte with ginger on top
And I know you were made for me
My way ain’t always right But with you it’s pretty tight
And I know you’re my remedy

Refreng
You’re the where I wanna be
You’re the morning I wanna see
Looks like you’re stuck with me
Well perhaps we’re mean to … (bridge)

Bridge
When the storm comes over I will be your smile
We’ll cross the rivers as we go As we go
Yes I know

DEAR OLD BANDIT
Written 09.11.2020
A# (Spiller i G m/Capo 3 band)

Dear old Bandit Where will you go
When summer is over and nothing will grow
Will you hide away somewhere surrounded by clay
Or fly to where summer will never go away

Dear old Bandit Will you bring me along
Can I walk with you always by singing this song
Through the season of winter and beauty of spring
To you I’ll be running To you I will sing

Sweet old Bandit There’s so much to say
I’ll miss you like crazy every day
Some days you’d be diggin’ a hole in my bone
But that’s all forgotten forgiven and gone

Sweet old Bandit Ain’t no-one like you
You bring out the sunshine on days dark and blue
Though your age run before you you’re young as a colt
And when life gets tricky you’re tough as a bolt

Darling Bandit What a beautiful day
I’ll take you out riding and you’ll choose the way
Down by the river or up in the hill
Winter is coming but we’ll be here still
Winter is coming but we’ll be here still

INTO YOUR LOVE
Written 30.08.2020
C

I was born into your love Born to grace
I was born to surrender To see your mighty face
Though my heart tried to fool me Guiding me to foreign land
You showed up Yes you showed up To bring me home

I was born into kingdom Born to be blessed
I was born to be holy To take off my sinful dress
Though my shame walked before me I can lift my head
I am washed Yes I am washed To life again 

I was born into kingdom Born to be blessed
I was born to be holy To take off my sinful dress
Though my shame walked before me I can lift my head
I am washed Yes I am washed In the blood of the Lamb
I am washed Yes I am washed To life again 

I WANNA HOLD YOU

I wanna hold you, I wanna hold you in my arms
I wanna hold you, I wanna hold you in my arms
But I have nothing more to offer
Than my distant common charms

I wanna hold you, I wanna hold you every day
I wanna hold you, I wanna hold you every day
Take me back, Take me back to pre-co-way
