Moon Safari Sweden

Track Name: Kids
Try to remember when you last laughed in the rain, when the neighbour’s kid was still your best friend, could it be that you were better then, could that have been your last real romance? / Now all this time we chased our tails in moonlight, weighed the world, dressed up nice and tied our shoes tight / While the kind of man that we wanna be, plays hide-and-seek somewhere back in -93 / Welcome to Heaven Hill, same old sounds the same old thrill / Where sleds are rushing down the mountainside, side by side the kids all learn to fly
Track Name: Too Young to Say Goodbye
Take me down to the far side of these tracks / Where uncle’s playin’ B-sides to the card game with all the wild jacks / See, I’m just playin’ for a ticket to get through / To catch whatever, forget all about you / Shut all the doors to the dawn / And you’ll be all alone / We’re much too young to say goodbye / But I won’t waste another day here by your side / When it comes to love you don’t have a clue / You don’t have a heart, but you could easily break mine / It’s time to say goodbye / My bride in black’s got a thing for the pusherman / It must be love, but they sure ain’t pretty when they’re holding hands / I got the memories and you’ve got a whole world to annoy / And just like Eddie Giles, I’m a losin’ boy / And she’s always livin’ in my pen - Oh, lord I’ve tried to forget your number / But I just won’t bleed for her again - My love for you is getting so much dumber / She is not someone I’d recommend / If this is the end of the road I might apologize, I love to hate that I love you and it’s time to say goodbye
Track Name: Mega Moon
Members of the jury there is, truth be told, nothing I can say yu don’t already know / But I guess it all started when I first laid eyes, on something all too pretty for my childish sight, such a light, got men hypnotised / And though my pretty face and velvet voice would do, I wished to bring a gift to show my love so true, first I picked some flowers then I realised; for this I need a greater scheme, a bigger dream, a surprise worthy of her blue eyes / I climbed up again, on Heaven Hill, that’s where I found my thrill / I stole the moon, now we’ll be married, my own Mega Moon . Though we know you think you’ll get / off easy if you tell it straight, there no room here for romantic flights and silly escapades, no, you’ll be sentenced to see where light’s no more, on the isle with the darkest shore . So throw me in the hole I’ll soon see china men, lock me in the tower then I’ll soon ascend, I’ll do my time just thinking of her blood red dress, I live on bread alone and just the thought of her sweet caress, it makes every man confess / I climbed up again, on Heaven Hill, I found my thrill / My Mega Moon, be mine forever, don’t know what I would do without you my love / My Mega Moon, be mine forever, they will try to take you from me, make my days forever sunny, hide and don’t make a sound / Sounds like he plans to get off pleading temporary insanity, there’s a room where fools like him enjoy the fruits of eternity, he’ll be sentenced to see where light’s no more, straight jacket on and padded walls, on the isle with the darkest shore / I knew what love was, a story in a moving picture, I thought the world was black and white like you and I, but now that I found it I doubt that there’s a crueler vision, than the one I see myself in until I die / Don’t worry baby, I’ll still keep you safe in my arms, it’s just that the one that has my love is up in the sky, you won’t hear it beating when resting on my chest there’s a hole where my heart is supposed to be, look all you want but it’s lost so am I / I stole the moon, soon we’ll be married, my own Mega Moon, my one true love / So tell me what’s honest, what’s real and what’s only fiction, somewhere between is where the truth will always lie / These are the tales of a sailor, a lonely traveller, all that I want is the chance to stay alive / Don’t worry baby, I’ll still keep you safe in my arms, it’s just that the love that I’ll take will be more than I make, you won’t hear it beating when resting on my chest there’s a hole where my heart is supposed to be, look all you want but it’s lost so am I / I stole the moon, soon we’ll be married, my own Mega Moon, my one true love / I stole the moon, my Mega Moon, she’s the only thing I’m dreaming of, nothing else no nothing in this world, the only thing that I am guilty of is love
Track Name: Barfly
We’re all widows and orphans here / Everybody’s fillin’ their bag of blues / Spillin’ cursed love stories / And I pretend that I’m amused - I need you / Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down today / I got her name on a tattoo / On the same knuckles that I hit the wall . And she was never sweeter than the distance that separated us / Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down / I’m here on my own, don’t bring me down
Track Name: Red White Blues
If you smile at me I’ll follow where you go, for a walk on cobble stones you’ll have my soul / When I see you paint the red white blues in high heel shoes, your beauty never ends / When the morning comes my bed will still be warm, when the thunder strikes we’ll shelter from the storm / When I see you paint the red white blues, in high-heel shoes, your beauty never ends / Stand by me, queen of hearts, walk with me, in revelry we’ll never be apart / Light might change just every color but the red white blues will sway forever more / You’ve tried to wrap your head right round it, her inviting smile’s right on the dime / but yesterday’s burned to ashes and nostalgia’s no longer a friend of mine / She promised me a promised land / So drink with me, in revelry we’re always hand in hand / I never got what I payed for, but I am still coming around for more / As your streets and made for dreamers, where the drifter and the gambler score / And I’ll follow you wherever you will go, down the dark and lonely hole inside your soul / I’m your ally in a war with no victory, if there’s one thing I can tell you what is pretty ain’t always sweet / In the ashes of the promised land, to the tunes of another crappy band, how the west was lost but won in east, how the red white blues still sway for you and me
Track Name: My Little Man
My little man, he cannot talk, My little man, he’s too young he cannot walk / My little man, one of a kind, My little man, he is always on my mind / When the dawn arrives I wake and hear him moan, there beside me lies the sun of my own / Though the morning sun is shining in, it never can compare to him / My little man, my everything . My little man, he can be mad, My little man, maybe he got it from his dad / My little man, he often weeps, My little man, I forgive him when he sleeps / He’s an angel without a pair of wings, but you can’t deny the glory that he brings / If there’s one thing I’m certain of, he must be sent from heaven above / My little man, my little love / He’s an angel without a pair of wings, but you can’t deny the glory that he brings / Now there’s one thing I am certain of, you must be sent from heaven above / My little man, my little, My little man, my everything, you are my greatest work of art / My little man, you have my heart
Track Name: Diamonds
My uncle on my father’s side’s a farmer, he is old now but smiles just the same, spent his life working way over yonder, in the fields among the rocks and the clay / He says: ”Tell me what more is a diamond, son, than a stone in the blind man’s hand, if you’d see what I see then you too could be king with a kingdom in hand” / Now I can’t help but think that there’s a truth there, something missing in this modern trance, maybe to live and work the land of your fathers is the offering our sanity demands / People chase the end of the rainbow, because they heard there’s the end of their tales / I just wanna be walking up the old dirtroad, passed the birchtrees I’ll see my uncle wave, singing: ”Tell me what more is a diamond, son, than a stone in the blind man’s hand, people run, running round round in circles until their diamonds get lost in the sand” / Oh, how I wish I’d be like him, free from a world that’s speeding / ”Don’t play their game boy can’t you see, the more you get the less you dream, Don’t put your faith in faithless lies, The cheering warmth of summer never dies, the cheering warmth of summer holds the instruments of life” / I don’t know if this is really true or not, but a friend told me Syd Barrett said, that the only way to be free is to lie still in your bed then there’s no end to the possibilities / So tell me what more is a Diamond, than a stone in the blind man’s hand, our lifes need to be cut into pieces so we can live every possible end / Don’t play their game boy
Track Name: Sugar Band
Come to Candyland, meet the Sugar Band, sweet and saccarine are we / Ride our unicorns, blow our summer horns, in our cotton candy dreams / Could it be that what you see says more of you than it ever could of me / Feed on honey dew, cream and toffee too, syrup’s the blood in our veins . Bounce with the Gummi Bears, dance until the moon appears, suck our big candy canes / Could it be that what you see says more of you than it ever could of me / Hip hip hooray, they’re here aren’t they great, Oh, when they sing they’re the angels come down / Between the lines, there behind the man, hides in the dark our creative spark / Some say the world is just lost on the Sugar Band / No, no we know what it means to have a fire burning inside, a final constant desire / Blind men, the absence of light does command, to try in a rock ’n’ roll band, trusting that poesy wings our flight in the year long foundation of night / Hip hip hooray, we’re here aren’t we great, Oh, when we sing we’re the angels come down between the lines, there behind the man, here in the dark’s our creative spark / Some say the world is just lost on the Sugar Band / Get down, black it up and then never fall in love oh man, we don’t need a teacher, honey this is the major league, race you to the top my friend, first place on to fairyland, half a heart in reality, half lost in a dream / Come to Candyland, meet the Sugar Band, heart of mystery that’s our recipe / Two pinches of love, the gift from above, a sprinkle of fairydust that’s the cure for the blues / Blues man, play it honestly, blue notes fake immortality, swim in syncronicity, all so fresh so clean / Brave new world, we’d rather be dinosaurs of the old machine, we bake our cake with fantasy, like back in -63 / Come to Candyland, meet the Sugar Band, heart of mystery that’s our recipe / More than you know, more than we show, meaning slips away so easy / Now could it be so, the point of it all has never been the truth but something more / Hip hip hooray, we’re here aren’t we great, Oh, when we sing we’re the angels come down / between the lines, there behind the man, here in the dark’s our creative spark / Some say the world is just lost on the Sugar Band / Blind men the abscence of light does command, some say the world is just lost on the Sugar Band
