Tegnet Hele Verden
Lyrics by Martin Thomas/Bjarne Jes Hansen - Music by Martin Thomas
(2015)



Du har tegnet hele verden
som en cirkel blød og rund
her får vi alle samme chancer
vi er skitser for en stund
 
Her er verden uden grænser
uden blokke uden bånd
hele jorden og en dansker
tegnet af en barnehånd
 
Se på mig
med pensel og streg
du tegner
din verden
op imod mig
 
Se på mig
du ved jeg elsker dig
du farver
din verden
som du ser den
 
Her er verden uden tanker
skygge billeder af et spejl
motiver ikke rammet ind
selvom du fjerner dine fejl
 
Du har tegnet hele verden
uden blokke uden bånd
hele jorden og en dansker
tegnet af en barnehånd
 
Se på mig
med pensel og streg
du tegner
din verden
op imod mig
 
Se på mig
du ved jeg elsker dig
du farver
din verden
som du ser den
 
Vi har tegnet hele verden
Vi har tegnet hele verden
 
Du drømmer mere end jeg gør
Se på mig jeg drømmer
Du drømmer mere end du bør
Se på mig jeg drømmer
Du drømmer mere end jeg tør
Se på mig jeg drømmer
Du drømmer mere end du bør
 
Se på mig...
 
Du tegner din verden
Du favner hele verden
som du ser den


Ikke Flere Chancer
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2015)


Så nu står jeg her
et virvar af tanker
ønsker kun
at finde vej
at nogen finder mig
jeg gemmer mig væk
i mine tanker, er jeg helt alene
 
Jeg falder ud mens jeg hænger i
har ikke flere tårer jeg ønsker at indfri
har ikke flere chancer at give
 
for vi har gjort det hele før
 
Jeg siger undskyld nu
og beder dig om at tilgive
en længsel, et savn
gør vi hinanden gavn?
jeg har
kun dig
du har mig
 
men vi har ikke flere chancer at give
uskadeliggjort og ulykkelige
ikke flere chancer at give
ikke mere at sige
 
for vi har gjort det hele før
for vi har gjort det hele før


Martyr
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2015)


Nogen tager for givet
at andre skiller sig ud
Nogen bryder strømmen
mens andre tror på Gud
 
Du er min martyr
mit et og alt, min martyr
 
Når du tænker tanker
som et eksplosivt motiv
Lader du andre om at stjæle drømme
uden perspektiv
 
En elsker sin næste
en anden elsker mest sig selv
En gør sit bedste
en anden slår tiden ihjel
 
Du er min martyr
mit et og alt, min martyr
 
Nogen savner intet
andre sender bud
Nogen ser tilbage
mens andre springer ud
 
Du er min martyr
mit et og alt, min martyr
 
Hvis du ser hele verden
som et farverigt motiv
ser andre slet intet
et tabt alternativ
 
Hvis du længes efter kærtegn
Hvis du længes efter vold
er du vildført alene
og uden nogen forbehold
 
Du er min martyr
mit et og alt, min martyr
 
(intermezzo)
 
Nogen tager for givet
at andre skiller sig ud
Nogen bryder sammen
mens andre tror på Gud
 
Du er min martyr
mit et og alt, min martyr
 
Hvis du ser hele verden
som et farverigt motiv
ser andre slet intet
et tabt alternativ
 
Hvis du længes efter kærtegn
Hvis du længes efter vold
er du vildført alene
og ude af kontrol
 
Du er min martyr
mit et og alt, min martyr


Glimt Af Forandring
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2015)


Natten er lang
dagene kort
glimt af forandring
før vi viskes bort
 
Hvem har mon ret
du eller jeg
vi løber ud
mens vi baner vej
 
Jeg ved
besked
kun dig
hvad var det vi sku nå
hvorfor gik tiden i stå
 
Livet er kort
et øjeblik vi besad
ryk tættere sammen
før vi skilles ad
 
Et strejf af håb
døren står på klem
jeg overgiver mig langsomt
før end jeg finder hjem
 
Jeg ved
besked
kun dig
hvad var det vi sku nå
hvorfor gik tiden i stå

 

 
 


You And I
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2012)

Your smile
speechless joy I'm on fire
your wings
so bright they burn

and I
would give up everything
just to hold you
make love to you
if only you were mine
lay down your love on me this time
so grateful that you're mine

Your lips
speaks to me without words
your eyes
shows me the secret you hide
unleash your fear
stay the night with me here
let me hold you
make love to you
if only you were mine
lay down your love on me this time
so grateful that you're mine

What if
you and I
my sweet peace of mind
you and I
we're not real

That's just how you make me feel

Your smile
speechless joy I'm on fire
your wings
so bright they burn

and I
would give up everything
just to hold you
make love to you
if only you were mine
lay down your love on me this time
so grateful that you're mine

What if
you and I
my sweet peace of mind
you and I
we're not real

That's just how you make me feel

What if
you and I
my sweet peace of mind
you and I
we're not real

So, god damn beautiful my mind
you and I

That's just how you make me feel
That's just how you make...
me feel


New York City
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


Got a girl
she lives in New York city
where the grass is green
and the girls they're all pretty

Here's a boy
he lives in Detroit down city
he's got no job and
he's got no reason to stay

That's why he's moving
to New York city
that's why he's moving
to where the girls they're all pretty
in New York city..
New York

Got a girl
she lives in New York city
where milk and honey flows
our future paved with better days

Need a bad, bad choice
stay in shutting down city
without a future
you've got no bills to pay

That's why we're moving
to New York city
that's why we're moving
to where the girls they're all pretty
in New York city
in New York city

the girls are all pretty
the girls are all pretty

You got to run away from here
that's just the way things are
if you plan on ever coming back for more
you're gonna rock n' roll
you're gonna rock n' roll
you're gonna rock n' roll
you're gonna rock n' roll

Got a girl
she lives in New York city
where the money's green
and the pavements made of gold

Here's a boy
stuck with some poor, poor choices
with a monkey on his bag
he's got no place to call his home

That's why he's moving
to New York city
that's why he's moving
to where the girls they're all pretty
a little town called..
a little place called..
New York city
New York city
New York

the girls are all pretty
the girls are all pretty

You got to run away from here
that's just the way things are
if you plan on ever coming back for more
you're gonna rock n' roll
you're gonna rock n' roll
you're gonna rock n' roll
you're gonna rock n' roll

Can you hear the music?
you're gonna rock n' roll
Can you hear the music?
you're gonna rock n' roll
Can you hear the music?
you're gonna rock n' roll

You're going to leave it all behind
there's no space and time
you're going to leave it all behind
 

Something To Believe In
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


You can take me to a river
and holy baptise me
leave me stranded on a high note
that's where I long to be

You can take me on a field trip
educate my soul
take me to the mountains
show me silver and gold

Just give me something to believe in
something to believe in
give me something to believe in
that someone is you

You can take me to a high plain church
above it all I'll pray
take me to the promised land
show me Jerusalem

Show me a passage from the bible
set my soul on fire
bring me closer to Jesus
that's where I long to be

Just give me something to believe in
something to believe in
give me something to believe in
that someone is you

Just give me something to believe in
something to believe in
something to believe in
that someone is you

I guess there's no freeway
in loving you, babe
I guess that's just the price I pay for wanting
you each day
you can call me stupid
but I miss you in every way
just go ahead and shoot me
my love grows bigger every day
I'll gladly kneel down and pray
if only you could show me the way

You can take me to hell and back
demonize my soul
if only you could scratch my back
bring me that silver and gold

Just give me something to believe in
something to believe in
something to believe in
that someone is you

Just give me something to believe in
something to believe in
something to believe in
that someone is you

Just give me, give me
something
give me
someone
give me
something
to believe in

Just give me, give me
something
give me
someone
something
to believe in
that someone is you

Give me..
Give me something to believe in
something to believe in
give me something to believe in
that someone is you

Just give me, give me
something
give me
someone
something
to believe in

that someone is you
that someone is you
that someone is you


Whatever Makes You Happy
Written and composed by Martin Thomas

Whatever makes you happy
whatever makes you sad
I'll bring you back home
home, that's where the hurt is

Stop falling into pieces
you're only hurting yourself
come back to me, baby
we'll make it work a while
stay home tonight

If you ever knew
how much I love you
and I still do
you should know me by now

If you ever knew
how much I love you
and I still do
you should know me by now

Whatever makes you pretty
whatever makes you smile
I walk in your steps
make sure, you won't fall behind
stay home tonight

Stop running scared of lonely
put your arms around me
come back to me, baby
we can make it work a while
please, stay home tonight

If you ever knew
how much I love you
and I still do
you should know me by now

If you ever knew
how much I love you
and I still do
you should know me by now
you should know me by now
you should know me by now


One Day
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


If there's a reason
why I'm feeling like I do
that's because
it's hard for me to face a life
without you

What you thought was sacred
the ties that we bend
disengages
and leaving me with fragments
of all the years that we've spend

How time flies
look at you now
my sweet child
let me kiss you
one more last goodbye

little baby, my little baby

Somewhere in the distance
I hear you call out my name
it awakes me
to find what I've been looking for
you're still so close
though you're far away

Take my advice
embrace your life
don't let the clouds
cover up your will to reach high
step aside, cos' here comes my child
at least, let me kiss you goodbye

How time flies
look at you now
my sweet child
let me kiss you
one more last goodbye

little baby, my little baby

One day,
one day your wings unfurl
you're going to reach out for the skies
someday you're gonna learn to fly
fly away, so high
you're gonna touch the sky

little baby, my little baby

One day,
one day your wings unfurl
you're going to reach out for the skies
someday you're gonna learn to fly
fly away, so high
you're gonna touch the sky

little baby, my little baby

You're gonna learn to fly, little baby
one day, you're gonna learn to fly on your own
someday you're gonna learn to fly, my baby
one day, you're gonna learn to fly on your own

What do you want from me?
some kind of dignity
we're god damn beautiful

a place without boundary
my life without me

And it feels like
there's a heaven
every time I look at you
my prayers and my humanity
my life carefree

Let it rain down..
Let it rain down..
merciful me, merciful you

What do you want from me?
my ignorance or apathy

What do you need from me?
intolerance or amnesty

Whatever our dreams are made of
we're everything we'll ever be

Empty handed people
narrow minded people
you've got what it takes

Phony mellow people
hollow talking people
you've got what it takes

Empty minded people
frozen blinded people
I've got what it takes

We're superficial people
sophisticated people
we all got what it takes

What it takes, baby
how fast and furious life is
you've got what it takes, baby
how fast and furious life is
you've got what it takes, baby
you've got what it takes, baby
how fast and furious our life is
we can't waste time, only waste ourselves

Empty handed people
sad and lonely people
I've got what it takes

Narrow minded people
obvious blinded people
you've got what it takes

You've got what it takes
(wish you godspeed)
You've got what it takes
(wish you godspeed)
You've got what it takes
(wish you godspeed)


Cupid Stupid
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2011)


Remembering me
how things used to be
the thrills you brought me
the joy of having you in my life

Remembering me
how careless we would be
you'd keep on laughing
keep on smiling
that's your game

Cupid little smile
stays with me
you're stupid if you think that love
comes easily

Cupid stupid smile
stays with me
if ever you'll hit
what you aim for
I won't be reckless anymore

Remembering me
how things used to be
I'll go searching
I'll go searching for that higher great

Remembering you
that I'll do
you'll keep on waiting
you'll keep on missing
but that's your game

Cupid little smile
stays with me
you're stupid if you think that love
comes easily

Cupid stupid smile
stays with me
if ever you'll hit
what you aim for
I won't be reckless anymore

affection comes carelessly


Love Is..
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


Goodbye
I hope love is on your side
I hope that love is on your side
whenever we let go
we're all acting strange

Goodbye
I hope time is on your side
I hope that time is on your side
I'm done drifting and vanishing
my life away

Love is so easy
a love that makes you pretty
love could be so easy
but you won't know
that's why I'm letting you go

Love is.. what you make of it
Love is.. what you bring into it
Love is.. so easy
but you won't know
that's why I'm letting you go

Isn't weird and isn't strange
or is it just the way the story goes
somehow we ought to know
no lifejackets but we're still afloat

I'm letting you go

Goodbye
I hope love is on your side
I hope that love is on your side
whenever we let go
we're both to blame

Goodbye
I hope time is on your side
I hope that time is on your side
I'm done waiting
and dreaming my life away

Love is so easy
a love that makes you pretty
love could be so easy
but you won't know
that's why I'm letting you go

Love is.. what you make of it
Love is.. what you bring into it
Love is.. so easy
but you won't know
that's why I'm letting you go

Isn't weird and isn't strange
or is it just the way the story goes
somehow we ought to know
no lifejackets but we're still afloat

I'm letting you know
that I'm letting you go

Love is.. what you make of it
Love is.. what you bring into it
Love is.. so easy
but you won't know
that's why I'm letting you go

Love is.. soul
Love is.. soul
Love
Love is.. soul


Rescue Me
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


I don't want to talk about it
Stop making' me talk about it

Real love, come care for me
Real love, finally

I don't want to dream about it
Stop making' me dream about it

Real love, come set me free
Real love, rescue me

Could you walk with me a mile
hold me just a while
and tell me
everything is going to be alright

Could you walk with me a mile
hold me just a while
comfort me
everything is going to be alright


Carpe Diem
Written and composed by Martin Thomas

Time
waits for nobody
time
waits for no one
time may be your friend
we're brothers in arms
deceitful at the very end
we're brothers in arms

Carpe diem, my love
keep breathing

Love
waits for nobody
love
waits for no one
love makes no promises
we're brothers in arms
deceitful at the very end
we're brothers in arms

You know that love won't keep

If you could see
there's a heaven above us
could there be
a heaven just for us?
what if love
where above all
could it be
there's a heaven just for us?

Carpe diem, my love
keep breathing

Time
waits for nobody
time
waits for no one
time may be your friend
we're brothers in arms
deceitful at the very end
we're brothers in arms

You know that love won't keep

If you could see
there's a heaven above us
could there be
a heaven just for us?
what if love
where above all
could it be
there's a heaven just for us?

Carpe diem, my love
keep breathing

Just keep breathing


Let's Make A Deal
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


Silly fool
on top of the world
with a loaded gun in your hand

You've been a victim for so many years
now it's time to rise and make a stand
I want you to shake my hand
let's make a deal

Silly fool
barks at the moon
I've come to take your life

You've been released
from all of your fears
here's an exit
without a door

But you will not die tonight
you will not set things right
you will not die tonight
you will not set things right

and you will not die tonight
now, let's make a deal


In Love With Your World
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2011)


Strange you had to leave me here
said' I've got nothing to fear
lay here tonight
stay here tonight
it's alright

I close my eyes and unlock the door
wondering if I've been here before?
still my beating heart
still my beating heart
it's alright

If you want to kill me, baby
I'm in love with your world
if you want to thrill me, baby
I'm in love with your world

I'm in love with your world
I'm in love with your world

Strange you had to walk away
I need you to stay
love sets me free
love rescue me
love kills me

If you want to carry, baby
no need to carry grudges then
lay with me tonight
stay with me tonight
it's alright

If you want to kill me, baby
I'm in love with your world
if you want to thrill me, baby
I'm in love with your world

I'm in love with your world
I'm in love with your world

Sit down and talk to me, sit down
sit down or let me be
sit down
sit down and talk to me, sit down
sit down or let me be

If you want to kill me, baby
I'm in love with your world
if you want to thrill me, baby
I'm in love with your world

I'm in love with your world
I'm in love with your world
I'm in love with your world
I'm in love with your world
I'm in love with your world


What's Wrong With This Picture
Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2008)


They show their faces on your TV screen
colorize your hopes and fears
in high definition dreams

What's wrong with this picture
tell me, what's wrong with this picture

Commercial breakdown
you're on advertising space
provides a charmed life
a perfect smiley face

What's wrong with this picture
tell me, what's wrong with this picture

They're preaching you high ideals
they even know just how you feel

What's wrong with this picture
tell me, what's wrong with this picture

Don't ever make things real
Don't ever make things real

What's wrong with this picture
tell me, what's wrong with this picture



Dreaming While You Sleep

Written and composed by Martin Thomas
(2013)


Set my soul on fire
you really got a hold on me
you really got a hold on me

If this gun is for hire
kill me now and set me free
kill me now and set me free

What are you going to do
when you find out
that I'm a concept of your
subconscious flow

What are you going to do
when you figure out
that I'm a thought
you've created to grow

What are you going to do
with your eyes wide shut
all things are subject to interpretation

What are you going to do
when you come around and face
I'm a figment of your imagination

What are going to do
when they find out the thruth of

Love, love, love
am I dreaming while you're asleep
am I dreaming
am I dreaming while you're sleep
while you're asleep
I'm dreaming

Set my soul on fire
you really got a hold on me
you really got a hold on me

If this gun is for hire
kill me now and set me free
kill me now and set me free

What are you going to do
when you find out
that I'm a concept of your
subconscious flow

What are you going to do
when you figure out
that I'm a thought
you've created to grow

What are you going to do
with your eyes wide shut
all things are subject to interpretation

What are you going to do
when you come around and face
I'm a figment of your imagination

What are going to do
when they find out the thruth of

Love, love, love
am I dreaming while you're asleep
am I dreaming
am I dreaming while you're sleep
while you're asleep
I'm dreaming

Wise up, we'll be dreaming
in our sleep
You're dreaming
safe asleep
Dreaming
am I dreaming...

Written and composed by Martin Thomas 
(2012)


Don't really care about your problems
your baby sisters are doing fine
Don't give a f... about your reasons
so please, you're simply wasting my time

Don't fool around
fool around and tell me, that you're not

Don't really care about your problems
your baby sister is doing aokay
This road has got no end
and these three chords, has all but taught me well

Don't fool around
say you've got your reasons
Don't fool around
say you're just the reason
I'm fine

You don't have to wear that dress tonight
makeup breakup you're uptight
You don't want that kind' a girl tonight
You don't want that kind' a girl
You're the wrong kind' a girl
at my side

Don't give a f... about your problems
You're a poster baby, radiating V okay
Don't really care about your sisters
ladies, you've all gone a bad bad way

Don't fool around
fool around and tell me, that you're not

Don't really care about your problems
your baby sister is doing fine
This road has got no end
but these three chords, has all but taught me well

Don't fool around
say you've got your reasons
Don't fool around
say you're just the reason
I'm fine

You don't have to wear that dress tonight
makeup breakup you're uptight
You don't want that kind' a girl tonight
You don't want that kind' a girl
You're the wrong kind' a girl
at my side
at my side

Play me pay me
Play me pay me
You're such a bad flavour
You're such a bad flavour

You don't have to wear that dress tonight
makeup breakup you're uptight
You don't want that kind' a girl tonight
You don't want that kind' a girl
You're the wrong kind' a girl
at my side
at my side

Hold me closer to your heart
Play me pay me
 



A New Beginning

Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


This is were I draw the line
I've shaked hands with the devil
for the last time
for the last time

Guess'
It's time now for me to wake up!
Guess'
It's time now for me to break up!
I can't deal with this shit no more
Sick and tired of playing this losers game
Sick and tired of constantly getting my dignity shamed
I'm letting you go
It's a new world
It's a new world
A new beginning for me
Yea Yea, Yea Yea, Yea Yea

This is were I draw the line
I've welcomed my stupidity
for the last time
I'm over and out
I'm finally through
Won't take no more
Our conscience awaked
Our final mistakes
Hope, it's not to late

Guess'
It's time now for me to back down!
Guess'
It's time now for me to slap your face down!
I can't deal with this shit no more
Make some noise and I will disappear
Tempt the devil inside and you might cut yourself a deal
I'm letting you go
It's a new world
It's a new world
A new beginning for me
Yea Yea, Yea Yea, Yea Yea

This is were I draw the line
I've shaked hands with the devil
for the last time
I'm over and out
I'm finally through
Won't take no more
Our conscience awaked
Our final mistakes
Hope, it's not to late


Change
Written & Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


Don't tell me your innocent
Don't tell me you're pure
There was never ever room enough
for us both
placed yourself on a higher floor
But still, you want me to change
for you
well, that I wont do
I'll never change for you
I'll never change for you

Said, if you want me to change
I wont change for you
If you got something to say
why don't you say it to my face
stupid you
take a good look at yourself
you're phoney, you're fake, you're a hypocrite
ignorant you
if you want me to change
I wont change a bit for you
Cos' I hate you

Tell everyone that you're reliable
Tell everyone you're for real
But when it finally comes to show
you got nothing to give
besides condemnation
I don't feel sorry for you
But still, you want me to change
change
well, that I wont do
I'll never change for you
I'll never change for you

Said, if you want me to change
I wont change for you
If you got something to say
why don't you say it to my face
stupid you
take a good look at yourself
you're phoney, you're fake, you're a hypocrite
ignorant you
if you want me to change
I wont change a bit for you
Cos' I hate you

You make it so easy
for me to hate you
You make it so easy
for me to hate you


First Aid Kid
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


Come on over
I need to tell you 'bout what's going on
You don't have to expose yourself
You need acceptance, go anywhere else
Don't hang around here, kid
Don't fool around here, kid
Is it true what they say?
nobody really cares anyway

We are young and we are here to make a change
I don't believe it
We are young and we are here to make a change
Is that so?
Try making a stand
You think your mom and dad really gives a damn?

Come on over
You need to tell me now what's on your mind
You don't have to dress up that way
but will you listen to a word I say?
Parental guidance gone astray
better straighten up or look the other way
That's what they say
they don't care about us anyway

This is the way things are
Now every youngster wants to be a star
You don't have to explain yourself
Compensate, try being someone else
You're a first aid kid
an easy target
for anyone, but your mom and dad to hit

We are young and we are here to make a change
I don't believe it
We are young and we are here to make a change
Is that so?
Try making a stand
You think your mom and dad really gives a damn?
Is it true what they say?

Where's your mom and dad? Where's the safety that you thought you had ?
Who's to tell you right from wrong? You're off directions, don't know where you belong,
Who's there to catch you when you fall? Who can you run to standing two feet small,
Who's to tell you good from bad? Where's the boundaries that you wished you had?
You're an off-guard kid,
You're an off-guard kid


Safe Keepings
Written & Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


This is my life
These are my dreams
Walk with me a while
through my boyhood state of mind
This is where I roam
On these streets I've grown
Paved with childhood memories
Our comforting boundaries

Safe asleep, no worries headed my way
Unaware, that we are bound to stay , here
our hopes
and fears
all buried here

This is my beliefs
Thru' all of them I've reached
I'm proud of who I am
Where I came from and where I stand
This is who I am
A simple ordinary man
Our rendering lives
Safe keepings determines mine

Safe asleep, no worries headed my way
Unaware, that we are bound to stay , here
our hopes
and fears
all buried here

And who did you run to?
Who were you trying to find?
You can't run away
cos' you're bound to stay
You can't run away

This is my life
Stay with me a while
The past is all we got
You can't leave it behind

Safe asleep, no worries headed my way
Unaware, that we are bound to stay , here
our hopes
and fears
are all buried here


85'
Written by Martin Thomas
Music by Martin Thomas and Troels Liljedahl
(2010)


Hush, little baby
Please tell me why
Our road looks shallow
undignified
We've been together
as a bride and a groom
independently wasted
dependently you

You've been hit by a rock
You've been hit by a car
you've been
hit by revelation, babe
hit by alteration, babe
You're on your own
completely alone

Hush, little baby
We're altered and modified
How thing's have changed
since 1985'
Independently welfare
now takes us down the aile
modern day integrity
unifies me

You've been hit by a rock
You've been hit by a car
you've been
hit by revelation, babe
hit by alteration, babe
You're on your own
completely alone

(Solo)

Hush, little baby
One day reality kicks in
undefined characters
we have been
Guess, love led us astray
our human behaviour
got carried away

You've been hit by a rock
You've been hit by a car
you've been
hit by revelation, babe
hit by alteration, babe
You're on your own
completely alone


Shelter Me
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


Keep that love
Keep that love
I've been giving myself a chance
one more chance to enhance myself
now, all the things I've said in songs
don't know whether I'm just weak or wrong
that's not okay
that's not okay
I'm done sheltering

I've been leaning on shattered friends
been jumping into vulnerable bookends
Now, I've tried to detect
guess our missing pieces wont connect
That's the bare truth
That's the bare truth
I'm done sheltering

Then we wake up not breathing
with our heads drowned
we're deceiving
I've been told to carry my own weight
but it feels like, I'm carrying yours instead
but it feels like, I'm carrying yours instead

If you shelter me, I'll shelter you
from the truth

I've been trying to look out my best
but, my fractured mind wont give me rest
Now, in every way I've tried to connect
the shattered pieces on which I've tread
I'm still yearning
I'm still yearning
I'm done sheltering

I've been shouting but no one could hear
I've been raised with nothing but fear
The fear of living has brought me down here
Finally, you've made me disappear
stay faraway
stay faraway
Don't you ever come close

(Repeat Chorus)

Then we wake up still breathing
with our eyes closed
we're revealing
a moment of clarity makes a song
still, we choose not to listen until it's gone
I like to wake up one morning without you


Runaway Child
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2008)


The trace of her footsteps
Was found in the cold white snow
The note she wrote
in her diary book of secrets
Tells, fallen angels goes to hell

But did you ever notice
That I were around?
If you needed a friend to talk to about
being lost, you would have been found

Be calm, don’t cry
We’re going to find your daughter, he said
As he left our house and waved goodbye
to me and my mother
Why didn’t you say something?
Why didn’t you let me in?
Who’s to blame?
You’re not the only one who’s hurting
Leaving me with the shame

But did you ever notice
That I were around?
If you needed a friend to talk to about
being lost, you would have been found

And did you ever reach out to face the truth?
Our spirit he may break
But our souls he won’t take

And did you ever watch the sun going down?
You’ll see, there’s always a sunrise
When the morning comes around
Don’t let the demons drag you down

Her cold raped body
Was found on a riverside downstream
Fallen angels, they do not go to hell
They go to heaven
With a story to tell

Do you see me, do you feel me ?

And did you ever reach out to face the truth?
Our spirit he may break
But our souls he won’t take

And did you ever watch the sun going down?
You’ll see, there’s always a sunrise
When the morning comes around
Don’t let the demons drag you down


Breaking Point
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


Take it easy
Wont you, take it easy
Don't worry 'bout a thing
That's what he said
That's what he said
But now he is gone
But now he is gone, astray

What are you gonna say?
if they all gone missing someday
Who are you gonna turn to?
defending your own way
This is your breaking point
This is your breaking point
your breaking, breaking point

What are you gonna do?
if your reasons leads you blindthrough
What do you want from me?
defying your own gravity
This is your breaking point
Your breaking point
your breaking, breaking point

What are you gonna do?
if your display don't work out for you
What are you gonna say?
when your dragged and stripped from your hideaway
This is your breaking point
This is your breaking point
your breaking, breaking point

What if this is your breaking point
your breaking, breaking point
Could this be your breaking point
your breaking, breaking point
What if this is your breaking point
your breaking, breaking point


Travelling
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


(Part 1)

Whenever you feel lonely
Whenever you want someone to hold you
we're all reaching, baby
for some kind of view

I was standing right by your side
a happy fool for loving you
thought you'd never leave me grounded
guess, I'm still in love with you
It's sad but true
we're all just been
travelling

(Part 2)

We've been around here, baby
but were you travelling alone?
on your own?
We've been searching, baby
but' we don't know what we're looking for
We'll keep on running on empty
We'll keep on running ourselves
far off the road
I want to talk to you, make love to you
Please, don't leave me alone

We been down here before
wont let you offshore
whatever it takes
tonight, let's go find each others grace
You've been around here waiting
been around, waiting for words to come down
for words to come down
Did I ever knew you?
if you ever knew me
what would you say?
But, you were always on your own
you've been travelling alone
travelling on your own
don't you see me standing by your side, by your side

We been down here before
wont go back there anymore
there's nothing worth fighting for
cos' you've been treating me like
a hostage, baby
like a hostage, baby
like a hostage, baby
like a hostage, baby


Higher Ground
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2010)


Lightning bolt strikes
on an empty street
he was shot down and killed
buried underneath your feet
you're awakening

Traffic city lights
scars you with it's knives of fear
the devil's out to get you
feel trapped inside here
you're awakening

Your sub conscience
is tearing you apart
been living with these nightmares
portrayed in your art

you'll keep running
you'll keep running

How can you take it so easy
get drowned
and you'll get breezy
your back on your feet again
Why don't you take me down easy
on higher ground
we'll get breezy
your a happy face again
on your own

Corridors they whispering
words you cannot hear
paranoia is a state
that you no longer fear
Your awakening

You've been breathing on hate
you've been haunted by your fate
your expired sanity
stays out late

you'll keep running
you'll keep running

How can you take it so easy
get drowned
and you'll get breezy
back on your feet again
Why don't you take me down easy
on higher ground
we'll get breezy
your a happy face again

(repeat chorus)

Why don't you take me down
we'll get lost
get found
whenever you strike
you can't bring me down
cos' we're on higher ground

Why don't you take me down
we'll get lost
get found
whenever you strike
you can't bring me down
cos' we're on higher ground


Walking Out That Door
Written by Martin Thomas
Music by Martin Thomas and Knud Sandberg
(2010)


Then you walked out the door
I won't be seeing you round here anymore
You once was all that I lived for
It's kind of sad

Tell me why the hurting still stays the same
though many years have passed
since I last speak out your name
You once was all that I lived for
It's kind of sad

No, you won't hurt me anymore
you can't hurt me like you did before
forever baby, I see you walking out that door
forever baby, I see you walking out that door

Walking out
still walking out that door
you won't hurt me no more
you won't hurt me no more

 



Brick By Brick

Written and Composed by Martin Thomas and Jesper Holst
(2007)



Brick by brick you’re falling down
Stone by stone you’ll reach the ground
High hopes, so bittersweet
When first you taste defeat

Brick by brick you’re falling down
Beware the cracks upon your million dollar face
Empty spaces, forsaken places
Turning tables
The scar on your face, the fall of your grace

Brick by brick you’re falling down
Stone by stone you’ll reach the ground
High ideals, tell us how it feels
being discarded

Brick by brick you’re falling down
What makes, it takes and leaves a stupid smile
upon your face, let the curtain fall
have you ever been loved at all?
The scar on your face, the fall of your grace

Shine on me baby, shine some light on me
Shine on me baby, shine some light on me

Brick by brick you’re falling down
Stone by stone you’ll reach the ground
High hopes, so bittersweet
When first you taste defeat

(Repeat Chorus)


The Blame I Lay On You
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(1998)



The pain inside
It’s so hard to describe
He said follow me
And I’ll show you what’s right
I was blinded by the light
The first time
I felt in my eyes
My soul was weak
And I needed a place to hide
My soul was weak
and I needed a place to hide

I’ve opened up my eyes
At least I thought
And I prayed for you to save my life
My faith in you was strong
I come to realised
Cos’ all I ever cared for now is gone
all I ever cared for now is gone

Pretending to be strong
That I we’re right
And they were wrong
Now left me and my pride
all alone
Now left me and my pride
all alone

The blame I lay on you
Although I know
You were blinded to
The sacrifice I’ve made
Has turned from love into hate
The sacrifice I’ve made
Has turned from love into hate

Well I guess I’m wiser now
At least that’s how I appear
But if you look me in the eyes
You’ll still see me wearing the same old disguise
If you look me in the eyes
I still wear that old same disguise

Hey kid, don’t let your life pass you by
Said, hey kid don’t let your life pass you by


Running To Stand Still
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2008)



If only you could feel what I feel
If only you could make my love for you real
Then I would
Then I would come around
You’re the air I’m breathing, running up that hill
I’m running, running to stand still
By my side, by my side
I wish you were by my side

Teach me how to love
Please, let me live again
Bring me home where I belong
back into your heart again
Make me feel like a child
wondering, how could anything be wrong
When you’re all the right reasons for me to feel strong

If only you could see me, the way that I see you
In my perspective, you’re all that matters in this little world
I would prove you wrong
I would prove you wrong, if only you give me a chance
You’re the draft in my veins, running up that hill
I’m running, running to stand still
By my side, by my side
I wish you were by my side

Teach me how to love
Please, let me live again
Bring me home where I belong
back into your heart again
Make me feel like a child
wondering, how could anything be wrong
When you’re all the right reasons for me to feel strong

Love is for saving, spare me a dime to keep


We’re Only Humans
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2000)



Here we stand
upon the remains of our
failed masterplan
Stripped naked to the bone
Why don’t you answer my call?
We can’t make it on our own

Guide me back home
please, don’t leave us here alone
With our guilt buried in the sand
We’ll keep on denying
Walk with me
through this godforsaken land

Cos’ we’re only humans
Making mistakes we don’t comprehend
Trying to find
a place in the sun
When it gets crowded
We’re soon to realise
What we’ve become
When it gets crowded
We’re soon to realise
What we’ve become

How fragile we are
When there’s no faith
to build our hopes upon
Little did we know
How this turns out
I guess, the aftermath will show

So, here we stand
upon the remains of our
failed masterplan
Stripped naked to the bone
Why don’t you answer my call?
We can’t make it on our own
Why don’t you answer my call?
We can’t make it on our own

(Repeat Chorus)


What’s Wrong With This Picture
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2008)



They show their faces on your TV screen
Colorize your hopes and fears
in high definition dreams
What’s wrong with this picture?
tell me, what’s wrong with this picture?

Commercial breakdown
you’re on advertising space
Provides a charmed life
a perfect smiley face
What’s wrong with this picture?
tell me, what’s wrong with this picture?

They’re preaching you high ideals
they even know just how you feel
What’s wrong with this picture?
I don’t see myself in this picture?

Don’t ever make things real
Don’t ever make things real

What’s wrong with this picture?
tell me, what’s wrong with this picture?


Trippin’ Lane
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas and Troels Liljedahl
(2006)



Wake up little Susie
We’ll take a walk down at Trippin’ lane
Where the city lights will blind us
Watch me tremble on
Watch me stumble on
My feet again
Watch me tremble on my feet again

Wake up little Susie
Let’s take a trip down at Trippin’ lane
No balance to prevent a fall
Watch me tremble on
Watch me stumble on
My feet again
Watch me stumble on my feet again

I choose to go forward
Don’t rewind me back
Don’t rewind me back again
I choose to go forward
Don’t rewind me back
Don’t rewind me back again
Don’t rewind me back again

Wake up Everly Sister
We’ll take a walk down at Trippin’ lane
Where the fireflies they haunt us
Watch me stumble on
Watch me crumbling on
My feet
Watch me stumble on my feet again
My feet
Watch me stumble on my feet again

I choose to go forward
Don’t rewind me back
Don’t rewind me back again
I choose to go forward
Don’t rewind me back
Don’t rewind me back again
Don’t rewind me back again

(Repeat Chorus)


Back Where You Belong
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2005)



Baby blue you’ve got empty eyes
Come undone before the night runs dry
You’ve been trying to hide away your fear
You’ve been crying but you can’t hide away your tears
Feelings do come true
I’m right here next to you
Feeling kinda’ blue

Whether you’ve found it or not
The empty faces you’ve been aiming at
Haunted places that reach out for you
I don’t care
Now I’m gonna take you home
Don’t really care
Back to where you belong
I’m gonna bring you home
Back where you belong


*Dedicated to Freddie Mercury 1946 – 1991


Who’s Your Daddy Now
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas and Troels Liljedahl
(2008)



Would you please, give it a rest
I’m trying my best at
being the one who falls for you to climb
Who’s your daddy now?
Tell me baby, who’s your daddy now?

Whenever you shout out at me
Your twisted logic and your imaginary thoughts
Listen baby, it doesn’t mellow my mind
What’s up with my baby, the only bitch who suits me fine

What’s the reason for your strange behaviour?
What you feel now?
What you feel now?

Freeze my rapid eye movements,
I’ll walk on fire, still it’s you
It’s only you who really blows my mind
How come you’re the victim and
I’m always the crime?

I’ll carry your weight
Bend and break, baby
Loving you, is my favourite mistake
Now wake up, the hurt lies beneath our skin
Undraw the sketches, in which our love once lived within’

What’s the reason for your strange behaviour?
What you feel now?
What you feel now?

Would you please, give it a rest
I’m trying my best at
being the one who falls, for you to climb
Who’s your daddy now?
Tell me baby, who’s your big daddy now?


Look At Me
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2000)



Look at me
I’m the man I warned myself about
Look’s as though
I’ve stepped out the crowd
Keep on the mask they want me to wear
You still won’t find me there

Look at me
I’m the man who lost faith in who I am
Everyone seem to got it all planned
What if I’m wrong?
What if they all pretend to be among
We’re not looking
We’re anything but strong

What gives you the right to keep your head held high
When you’re afraid to look yourself in the eyes
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
Don’t judge upon what you see
Don’t judge upon what you see

Look at me
I’m the man with the
Grey coloured painted soul
Who am I?
No one really wants to know
Keep on pretending
Otherwise it shows
Stop looking at me as if I’m a ghost

Look at me
I’m the man wearing a happy face
Among the big crowd
I feel like I’m choking
Can’t find no exit
There’s no way out
I can’t take no more
What is it we’re hiding for?

What gives you the right to keep your head held high
When you’re afraid to look yourself in the eyes
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
Don’t judge upon what you see
Don’t judge upon what you see

Take a look at yourself


When You Forget About Me
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2008)



Blindness keeps us save

Days were endless, days I’ve spend with you
facing tomorrow now, ain’t easy for me to do
this is how I feel
this is how you make me feel
Yesterdays woman how can I stop loving?
When you forget about me, I won’t forget about you
this is how I feel
this is how you make things real

Don’t keep all your love on the inside
I thought you were for real
Gonna show you all my love on the outside
How could it be wrong?
Don’t keep all your love on the inside
I’m barely hanging on
Gonna show you all my love on the outside

Stolen moments, that I bought from you
guess I took it for granted, guess you took me for a fool
this is how I feel
this is how you make me feel
I’ve come to terms with that love of your kind, makes no deal
but you cant take back the moments, that I thought was real

Don’t keep all your love on the inside
I thought you were for real
Gonna show you all my love on the outside
How could it be wrong?
Don’t keep all your love on the inside
I’m barely hanging on
Gonna show you all my love on the outside


The End Of Our Story
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2005)



Well, this is the end of our story
The end, dear friend
Hope I’ll meet you again
don’t know where
and I don’t know when?

Until then
I will keep laughing
and smiling
Everytime
I look back on then
The great times we had
All the fun that we shared
You’ll always gonna be my friend

*Dedicated to Knud Sandberg 1952 - 2000


A Piece Of Heaven
Written & Composed by Martin Thomas
(2007)



Now baby you’ve got that something
The way you walk, The way you talk
Your velvet skin

You’re in my weins
You’re in my blood
You’re in my head
You’re like some fucking drug
Feels like i’m dead
Did someone woke me up

Could you just
Give a little piece of heaven
Give me a little piece of hell
Before you go, I need you so
Before you, I need you so

Well honey you’ve got that something
That something sparks a flame in me
You slowly kill me with your spell

What is there left for me to do?
Knowing you’re a part of me, and I’m a part of you

Could you just
Give a little piece of heaven
Give me a little piece of hell
Before you go, I need you so
please don’t go, I need you so

 



The Things We Left Unsaid

Written and Composed by Martin Thomas and Knud Sandberg
(1999)


What should it take
for us to break these walls that surrounds us
All the things we left unsaid
haunts me, keeps me awake
Look at all the beauty you’ve brought into my life
Had I walked blindfold
why didn’t I open up my eyes?
It’s so hard leaving without saying goodbye

But you won’t heal
You won’t heal the pain tonight
Cos’ you can’t move on without love in your life
You won’t heal
You won’t heal the pain tonight
Cos’ you can’t move on without love in your life
That’s my regret, that’s my regret
The things we left unsaid
All the things we left unsaid

How I wished that you were here at my side
If only for a moment, I won’t waste time
Barricades of untold feelings
I thought that we could break
Now you’ll never know, cos’ I never showed

But you won’t heal
You won’t heal the pain tonight
Cos’ you can’t move on without love in your life
You won’t heal
You won’t heal the pain tonight
Cos’ you can’t move on without love in your life
That’s my regret, that’s my regret
The things we left unsaid
All the things we left unsaid

Tonight I saw you in a different light
What’s the use in pretending
If what you pretend leaves you out of sight

(repeat chorus)

Now you won’t see me cry
You’ll never hear me say goodbye
You’ll never know how much I loved you
You’ll never know how much I cared for you


Walk Away
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2005)


I’m not afraid of them
They don’t rule me anymore
The ghosts that haunted me
For so long, now they’re gone
And I feel strong
Maybe I moved on?
Haunted spirits, where do they go
When they got no one to climb on
Lean on
They won’t climb on me no more
Like they did before
Take a look at me, tell me what you see
Finally, I’m free

You better move on
Keep walking away
Don’t turn around, don’t stay
You better keep on walking
Better keep on walking
Away
Better keep on walking away

The past is all we got to leave behind
I’ve walked these steps for the last time
And I feel safe, knowing I’m on my way
Headed forward, awaits a brand new day
Beautiful me
Cos’ they won’t hurt me anymore
Like they did before
Take a look at me, tell me what you see
Finally, I’m free

You better walk on
Keep walking away
Don’t turn around, don’t stay
You better keep on walking
Better keep on walking
Away
Better keep on walking away

Better keep on walking

Don’t hang on, to what you think you’ve build you’re life upon
Move on, don’t be scared
Be strong now, you’ll soon be gone

(repeat chorus)


Livin’ On A Memory
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas and Knud Sandberg
(1998)


Well, this has been going on for to long
Maybe its time we stopped up and see
That we have grown apart each day
We’re living on a memory

So baby
Let’s break these chains and feel free
Cos’ it seems like we lost the key
Can’t go on living on a memory
Can’t go on living, living on a memory

So I’ll pack my things
And get out of your way
Straight ahead waits a brand new day
Look at my feet
They’re walking down the street
Away from all the mess up we’d made

So baby
Let’s break these chains and feel free
You’re not the one for me, and I’m not the one for you
Pretending only brought us pain
Wake up, let’s face reality
Can’t go on living, living
Living on a memory

Now, let’s face the fact
Time has run from us
And we aint getting younger you and me
It may take some time
But sooner or later
One day, we’ll be able to see
That this wasn’t meant to be
Can’t go on living, living
Living on a memory

Can’t go on livin’ baby
Can’t go on livin’
Cant go on livin’ baby
On a memory

So baby
Let’s break these chains and feel free
You’re not the one for me, and I’m not the one for you
Pretending only brought us pain
Wake up, let’s face reality
Can’t go on living, living
Living on a memory


Finally

Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2005)



Finally
One day, you’ll see
In the trace
I’ve left behind

That all
I ever
Wanted most
Was to seek peace in mind

Finally
you came to me
Finally
you brought it back to me
Finally
I do feel free
Finally
you came back to me
Finally
I do feel free
Finally
you brought it back to me
Finally


For Philip 
Written and Composed by Martin Thomas and Knud Sandberg
(1998)


Lay your head
Down on your pillow
Hear my song
Before you fall a sleep
Sleep, sweet child
Close your little eyes
Cos’ the night is set aside
For your dreams

What the future may bring you
I wish you the best
I hope, that you’ll be blessed
But for now, we’ll just let it be
Guess we’ll have to wait and see
I guess we’ll have to wait and see

Take good care of your mother
Whenever she feels weak
You’re going to make her strong
Little boy eyes
So filled with love
Will tell her, that she is the one
Whatever happens, you’ll always be her son
Whatever happens, you’ll always be her son

This is your song... Philip


Let Me (Fade Away) 

Written and Composed by Martin Thomas
(2005)


Leave me alone
I don’t want you here
I don’t need your sympathy, dear
Anymore, don’t really care no more
I’ve had my say, please let me fade away

Whether I’m right or whether I’m wrong?
I won’t back down now, the hurting is too strong
It’s my life, this is were I belong
When you turn your back, I’ll might be gone
You better keep walking on
I’ve had my say, please let me fade away

Where will you stand? Where will you belong?
When you realise, your faith has done you wrong
You probably still be climbing on
Definitely you will be holding on
Well honey, forgive me but I’m not that strong

I don’t want you to save me
I don’t need you to pray for me
I don’t want anything from you
There’s nothing you can say or do
There’s nothing, I really want from you
I’ve had my say, please let me fade away

How it ends depends on how you see
There’s no one here to blame, but me
I’ll leave you the way you chose it to be
Indefinitely
Indefinitely
I’ve had my say
please let me fade away

(I didn’t want it no other way)
