Circle the Woods

Need to Connect
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing. Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Virginia faces east to the moonlight remembering her
Cellular relation
To the sky
Hera whistles to the south
Honoring passion

Sarah calls to the north
To hidden lava underground
Hidden lights within ourselves
Everything is mirrored ´round

And they know we´re one
They know that we´re one

We need to connect
We need to communicate
A new sensitivity
To remain on this great earth

Beginning to dream
Beginning to shape our thoughts
Imagine a new intent
To remain on this great
Remain on this great earth

Michael´s lying in a landscape and wonder´ing how
Conflicts can arise in such beauty
Thinking of his daughter
And thinking ahead

Marguerite´s lying next to a mountain and feeling its
Protection makes her
Heart beat slowly

And they know that we´re one
They know

We need to connect
We need to communicate
A new sensitivity
To remain on this great earth

Beginning to dream
Beginning to shape our thoughts
Imagine a new intent
To remain on this great
Remain on this great earth

We need to communicate
A new sensitivity

The Stream
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing. Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Even in November
Running water fills the stream
From an uphill waterfall
Crossing our trail
Purifies our spirit
Baptize us with new intent
Shaping canyons made of stone
Cleaning our wounds

Close your eyes and listen
Closely to the sound
Let your thoughts drift
Let your mind flow
Memories being swept downstream
Open up your heart
Let the sunlight
Fill the shadow
Of your mind

Be aware of moisture
Moisture fills the air we breathe

From an uphill waterfall
And touches our skin
Temperature is cooling
Makes our breathing more relaxed
Sensing here´s a doorway
To a new path

Close your eyes and listen
Closely to the sound
Let your thoughts drift
Let your mind flow
Memories being swept downstream
Open up your heart
Let the sunlight
Fill the shadow
Of your mind

The Wanderer
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Henrik Balling. Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Once upon a time long ago
A bearded man sat down to rest while
He was on a journey
His beard was messy from the wind
That swept across his face and whispered
Words into his soul

He´d been up the mountain
And through the woods
He´d travelled much further
Than he thought he could

Sometimes you´re just driven
You know you have to go
Forward
Feeling restless
Sometimes the best is the simplest
You know you have to follow
Your heart

That´s what he felt
When he took off

He watched his life passing by
As he sat down for a while
Beside the ambers from a fire
Another face without a beard
And then without a wife
A timeless face without a story

He could be anyone
He really could
An ancient caveman
Or a guy from your neighborhood

Sometimes you´re just driven
You know you have to go
Forward
Feeling restless
Sometimes the best is the simplest
You know you have to follow
Your heart

That´s what he felt
When he took off

Heart and Soul and Mind
Music & lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Waiting in a no man´s land of longing
Waiting in a desert where the water´s long gone
People seem to think I had it coming
But nothing could prepare me for this void of love
So I dream away
Dream away
For a while

And I am counting the days
Until I see you again
For every step that I take my love
You´re in my heart and soul and mind

Standing on a threshold to a landscape
Searching for a pathway in between the floods
Time is standing still, but still my heart aches
Telling me, that we are just too far apart
So I dream away,
For a while

And I am counting the days
Until I see you again
For every step that I take my love
You´re in my heart and soul and mind

Waiting in a no man´s land of longing
Waiting in a desert
Where the water´s long gone

Song of Seasons
Music and lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

I met a young woman lately
Well, hardly a woman yet
She was up against the tallest wall
That parents build because of love
She told me
She said she had to leave home now
And find her very own space
She´s afraid that if she didn´t leave
She´d never find a way to live
A place on earth where she belonged
A space where she could sing her song
She knew that

I met a middle-aged woman
On her way through the park
She´d discovered that the race she ran
Was not the one that she had planned
She told me
She said she wanted to change things
And run before it´s too late
There were dreams she never really lived
Some things she knew that she would miss
Imagine being old some day
And feeling one had lost one´s way
She knew that
It was time to let go
It was time to move ahead
It was time to travel if you wish to
And to never be afraid
It was time to let go

I met an elderly lady
On her walk on the beach
Her husband left her recently
She found him lying dead in
The garden
She always wanted to travel
But he would rather stay at home
So the years went by, they built a life
Quite happily as man and wife
But suddenly she´s on her own
And missing days and things they´d known
She knew that

I met a dying woman lately
She told me it felt strange
She´d been in the doctors waiting room
In front of a woman with a new born
Baby
She said her life was at its end now
But the first half was ever so much fun
She would rather be a mother with
A lively child of five or six
And living life with all its fights
Like standing up for what was right
She told me

But it was time to let go
It was time to move ahead
It was time to travel
If you wish to
And to never be afraid
It was time to let go

Sometimes in life
Sometimes in this life
Sometimes in life
It´s time to let go
Sometimes in life
Sometimes in this life
Sometimes in life
It is time to let go
to let go

Love a Thousand Years
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Henrik Balling, Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Any owl, any mouse
Any castle or any house
Any mammal, any fish
Any hopeful, hesitating wish
Any flower, any tree
Any desert, any sea
Any smile or any sigh
Everything is you and I

Love a thousand years
A lasting love
Who´ll make it clear for us?
Love that shines a light
That reunites
Who´ll pioneer for us?

Any mountain, high or low
Any body, or any soul
Any truth or any lie
Everything is
You and I

Love a thousand years
A lasting love
Who´ll make it clear for us?
Love that shines a light
That reunites
Who´ll pioneer for us?

“Agneau de Dieu, qui sauves les hommes,
Agneau de Dieu, qui nous comptes et nous nommes,
Agneau de Dieu, vois, prends pitié de ce que nous sommes.
Dieu le seul fils de Dieu le Père”.

Love a thousand years
A lasting love
Who´ll make it clear for us?
Love that shines a light
That reunites
Who´ll pioneer for us?

Love a thousand years
A lasting love
Who´ll make it clear for us?
Love that shines a light
That reunites
Who´ll pioneer for us?

The Woods
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing, Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Where the woods begin
The trees are scattered thinly over the hillside
And sunlight filters
Easily through their leaves and branches
The alternation of the sunlight
And shadow
Affects my state of mind

In the play of the light
I`m aware
Of the rapid shifting of my eyes
As they begin to adjust

First to the shadow
And then to the light
First to the shadow
And then to the light

Tension
In my body
Ebbs and flows
With the shifting
As Tension
Comes to consciousness
I surrender
The strain
And let go
With the shifting
My breathing
Deepens and slows

The distractions of my mind
Slide into my feet
And into the earth

As I walk through the woods
Taking in the fragrance of the trees
I adopt a pace
That allows me to enjoy
I feel the shade and the patches of sunlight
On my skin

Light patterns dance
On my eyes
With the subtle shifting of the light
And they begin to adjust
First to the shadow
And then to the light
First to the shadow
And then to the light

Tension
In my body
Ebbs and flows
With the shifting
As tension
Comes to consciousness
I surrender
The strain
And let go
With the shifting
My breathing
Deepens and slows

The distractions of my mind
Slide into my feet
And into the earth

Mother Earth
Mother Earth
Mother Earth
Mother Earth
Mother Earth
Mother Earth

Peter´s Song
Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

And it was freedom at fast pace
It was 1974
He was driving a Cadillac
Through the States
And he was 20 years old
His long hair blew in the wind
From the open window
His blue eyes were
Like the stars that shine
His hands on the wheel
Moving forward

And he believed in compassion
He believed in love
And every person that he met
Thought they´d seen him before
He was seeker, a yogi, a restless soul
A generation

And with a new horizon
And with sense of hope
There were civil rights, and women´s rights and black´s rights
And there was love and war
And troubadours sang songs from their hearts
To the people
And while marching to a different drum
Pete Seeger wondered where
The flowers had gone

´Cause he believed in compassion
He believed in love
And every person that he met
Thought they´d seen him before
He was a seeker, a yogi, a restless soul
A generation

Eucalyptus Grove
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing. Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Trees in
A eucalyptus grove
On the right side
Of the road
Standing ankle deep
In their sloughed skin

The tree trunks
Exposing many shades
Of pale and green and tan
They seem almost to be made
Of layer after layer making
Shedding seem so simple
Getting rid of things
Cleansing

I pick up strands of bark
And wrap them ´round myself
´cause they remind me of
What needs to be pared away
It was so amazing
I came in touch with
What I´d like to shed
Like I heard a song
And I didn´t care
´bout any of my past mistakes
It was ok
And pointless to be perfect
Now

I close
My eyes and breathe
While the wind blows
In the trees
Tip my head back
And face toward the sun

Freshness
And fragrances
Eucalyptus-
Newness

Letting go just
Letting go
Letting go just
Letting go
I´m open

I pick up strands of bark
And wrap them ´round myself
´cause they remind me of
What needs to be pared away
It was so amazing
I came in touch with
What I´d like to shed
Like I heard a song
And I didn´t care
´bout any of my past mistakes
It was ok
And pointless to be perfect
Now

It was ok
And pointless to be perfect
Now

Frida´s Feet
Music & lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

On a hazy day
All you see
Is a shadow
Gliding through the streets
Quietly
In her raincoat

But this passion flame
Burns within
As Frida goes
Running through her veins
Breathing
Uncontrolled

Feet hurt
Rain falls
Did she
Miss her call
On this long, lonely night?
Heart beats
Cars hoot
Hasty feet
In wet shoes
It´s a long, lonely night

It has been a while
Since she
Was down this lane
And a secret smile
Reveals
She totally lost again

Will he show up late
Just to see
If she waits?
Is his soul ablaze
Like she
Or is it just a game?

Feet hurt
Rain falls
Did she
Miss her call
On this long, lonely night?
Heart beats
Cars hoot
Hasty feet
In wet shoes
It´s a long, lonely night

And maybe we could just forget
Forget we ever met
At all?
And all the tears that I have shed
Regret they ever did
Fall

Feet hurt
Rain falls
Did she
Miss her call
On this long, lonely night
Long, lonely night
On this long, lonely night

Butterflies
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing. Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Watching the butterflies
Dancing in the air
Silent and vividly
They communicate
Invites your soul

Fluttering butterflies
Carry you with them
Moving away from earth
On a journey
Invites your mind

Transformation draws you
What is it that you wish to change
In order just to be yourself?
Transformation draws you
And looking in from out of space
What will you emerge as – emerge as?

Butterflies
Butterflies
Butterflies
What will you emerge as?
Butterflies
Butterflies
Butterflies
What will you emerge as?

Run with the wind in spring
And they´ll guide you
Fly with a lark that sings
And they´ll carry you
Invites your heart

Transformation draws you
What is it that you wish to change
In order just to be yourself?
Transformation draws you
And looking in from out of space
What will you emerge as – emerge as?

Butterflies
Butterflies
Butterflies
What will you emerge as?
Butterflies
Butterflies
Butterflies
What will you emerge as?

Flower Power
Music: Maria Elizabeth Hersing. Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing & Ginny Anderson

Sitting very still
I hear the call and the response of the quails behind me
“Where are you?”
I´m touched by the frail loveliness of pale blue blossoms
Baby blue eyes

Bending closer to them
I fill my field of vision with the blue as I purposely unfocus
My eyes
Tiny pin-points of color variations of blue
Scattered on soft petals

Flower Power
I´m a wild flower
The plants, the birds, the bugs, the trees
Are the tapestry
Flower Power
Like a light tower
Of lavender, white and gold and pink
Let it breathe

I allow the softness to flow up my fingers
To flow up my hands, to flow up my arms
Into my body
I revisit this scene time and again
Imagining
I touch one of the petals,
As I feel its texture, feel its fragrance, feel its softness
Very slowly
Floating on a fantasy
Wrapped in the essence of colors
Of safety and love

Flower Power
I´m a wild flower
The plants, the birds, the bugs, the trees
Are the tapestry
Flower Power
Like a light tower
Of lavender, white and gold and pink
Let it breathe

Follow the invitation of the flower
Follow the invitation of the flower
Follow the invitation of the flower
Follow the invitation of the flower

I´m a wild flower
The plants, the birds, the bugs, the trees
Are part of the tapestry

Flower Power
Like a light tower
Of lavender, white and gold and pink
Let it breathe
Let it breathe (flower power, flower power)

Wild flower (wild flower)
The plants, the birds, the bugs the trees
Are the tapestry (the plants, the birds, the bugs, the trees)
Flower power
Like a light tower (light tower)
Of lavender, white and gold and pink
Let it breathe
Let is breathe (flower power, flower power)

Wild flower (wild flower)
The plants, the birds, the bugs, the trees
Are the tapestry (the plants, the birds, the bugs, the trees)
Flower power
Like a light tower (light tower)
Of lavender, white and gold and pink
Let it breathe
Let is breathe (flower power, flower power)
Let it breathe

The Kingfisher

Music and lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

Today I saw a kingfisher

A tiny little bird

Shimmering as it flew

Along the river

Today I saw a kingfisher

A tiny little bird

Scanning the water along it´s way

Looking ahead for the catch of the day

Little bird

Like a peacock shining

Like a light that´s guiding

Like a dream

Little bird

Like the seeker finding

Like a heart not minding

What has been

Little bird

Today I saw a kingfisher

A tiny little bird

Blue and green on it´s wings

Just like the open sea

Today I saw a kingfisher

A tiny little bird

Little bird

Like the peacock shining

Like a light that´s guiding

Like a dream

Little bird

Like the seeker finding

Like a heart not minding

What has been

And did you find your love?

What are you dreaming of?

Did you find your love?

Today I saw a kingfisher

A tiny little bird

Anyway

Music and lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

You keep on tossing

You keep on turning

And something clearly is wrong

It´s way past midnight

You´re hurting inside

So tell me

What´s going on

I know it´s crazy to say

But I believe you

Anyway

So come on

Don´t be so proud

Get it off your chest

And say it out loud

Whatever troubles there lay

Love you anyway

I love you anyway

So come on

This feeling in you

It won´t continue

And things look dif´rent

At dawn

The palest moon light

Will turn to sun light

The darkest hour

Is gone

So don´t be frightend to say

I see right through you

Anyway

So come on

Don´t be so proud

Get it off your chest

And say it out loud

Whatever troubles there lay

Love you anyway

I love you anyway

So come on

Come on

And I Hope

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

Tear drops

Fear drops

Who can make this rain stop now?

Night falls

Heart falls

Loneliness creeps up your walls now

Somehow, somewhere, someone shines a light

Through darkness

And I hope

That you know

You´re always safe with me

I´ll hold

You as close

As you need

Mondays

Shoe lace

Tying all your blue days now

Somehow, somewhere, someone shines a light

Through darkness

And I hope

That you know

You´re always safe with me

I´ll hold

You as close

As you need

And you know

It is so

There´s a place for you to be

I´ll hold

You as close

As you need

So don´t you think that time has gone

It hasn´t even halfway run

I hope you know

Love Seems So Far

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

Love seems so far

Behind closing doors

Squeaking their final warning

Only the breath

Of a brand new day

Saves me from feeling nothing

In the clear morning light

After rain, after night

In the clear morning light

I´ll kiss you

If your voice gently speaks

My heart opens with ease

If your voice gently speaks

I´ll stay

Sing to my moon

With a soothing tune

Sing to the love

Of laughter

Don´t waste a day

Let us live instead

Happy forever after

In the clear morning light

After rain, after night

In the clear morning light

I´ll kiss you

If your voice gently speaks

My heart opens with ease

If your voice gently speaks

I´ll stay

In the clear morning light

After rain, after night

In the clear morning light

I´ll kiss you

If your voice gently speaks

My heart opens with ease

If your voice gently speaks

I´ll stay

 

Sometimes Love

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

She had been gone for a while

She had been far away

Completely focused her mind

On lots of other things

And he said I do without shelter

When the rain´s pouring down

I can do without shoe soles

When the snow covers the ground

I can do without sunshine

In the cool morning air

I can do without blue skies

But I need you to be there

It´s been a hopeless affair

It has been draining me

I know you don´t really care

But please don´t set me free

And he said I do without shelter

When the rain´s pouring down

I can do without shoe soles

When the snow covers the ground

I can do without sunshine

In the cool morning air

I can do without blue skies

But I need you to be there

Sometimes love

Seems so wrong

Sometimes love

Makes us forget that we´re strong

Forget that we´re strong

Forget that we´re strong

Forget

I can do without shelter

When the rain´s pouring down

I can do without shoe soles

When the snow covers the ground

I can do without sunshine

In the cool morning air

I can do without blue skies

But I need you to be there

I need you to be there

 

Summer Nights

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

You hear me, you see me, you hear me 

No one could ever want so much to kiss you

As I do

No one could dream so much about your name

No one can see your eyes as clear as I do

And I do

No one can sense the movements of your hands

It´s those summernights again

And the sunsets with no end

It´s those summernights again

You know

No one can feel the whirlwind that has caught me

No one can smell the perfume I inhale

No one can know how much you really got me

No one can see the waves on which we sail

And I try to let it go

This intoxicating flow

Yes, I try to let it go

Again

You hear me, you see me, you reach me

When I´m unreachable

You feel me, you know me and only

The two of us knows

Time is long when you are far away

Hanging on to telepathic ways

No one could ever want so much to kiss you

As I do

No one could dream so much about your name

You hear me, you see me, you reach me

When I´m unreachable

You feel me, you know me and only

The two of us knows

You hear me, you see me, you reach me

When I´m unreachable

You feel me, you know me and only

The two of us knows

It´s those summernights again

It´s those summernights again

It´s those summernights

It´s those summernights

 

That You Loved Me

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

Turn off the stars

And pack up the moon

Bury our hearts

Where the sky is blue

And don´t forget to say what we both know

That you loved me

Turn back the sun

To the day it was bright

Time that has gone

Will be brought back to life

And don´t forget to say what we both know

Just remember how the story goes

Don´t forget and don´t be shy to show

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

Nothing breaks the morning as the sun light

It´s just a fact

It´s just a fact

Everything awakens at the day light

And takes us back

Soft as the wind

And gentle as dew

I would send kisses

And address them to you

And don´t forget to say what we both know

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

That you loved me

 

White Snow

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

 

White snow

Is glimmering

White snow

Brings light around us

Lying there

Quietly

Peace of mind

Endlessly

White snow

Stay a while

White snow

You´re so fragile

Blue sky

High above

Blue sky

Where swallows hover

Take my mind

Further up

And the flight

Never stops

Blue sky

Sets me free

Blue sky

Gives clarity

Pink rose

Like a dream

Pink rose

I scent your beauty

In your skirt

Velvety

Asking to

Dance with me

Pink rose

In my yard

Pink rose

You speak my heart

 

I´m Through Worrying

Music & Lyrics: Maria Elizabeth  Hersing

 

I´m through worrying

I´m done regretting the past

I´ve drawn a line in the sand

Starting over

You know

I´d blame myself for thousands of things

You know

I´d doubt decisions

And try to escape

But it all comes down to

All comes down to

No reason

No reason at all

So I´m through worrying

I´m done regretting the past

I´ve drawn a line in the sand

Starting over

I stopped turning

I stopped not sleeping at night

I try to look at the light

And start over

I know

The things you told me

Were more than enough

I know

I shouldn´t grumble

And say things are rough

But it all comes down to

All comes down to

No reason

No reason at all

Yes, it all comes down to

All comes down to

No reason at all

So I´m through worrying

I´m done regretting the past

I´ve drawn a line in the sand

Starting over

I stopped turning

I stopped not sleeping at night

I try to look at the light

And start over

So I´m through worrying

I´m done regretting the past

I´ve drawn a line in the sand

Starting over

I stopped turning

I stopped not sleeping at night

I try to look at the light

And start over

So I´m through worrying

I´m through worrying

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solitude Again

Music & lyrics: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Days go by in endless haze, they

Never seem to hesitate, they

Glide like skies before my very eyes

I try to grab a hold of them but

They don´t even notice when they

Outsmart me once again and fly

Ooh –h      ooh-h

It´s that solitude again

Looking down at me

Ev´rytime I try to get some sleep

There´s no direction now

No more when or how

My mirror even shakes it´s head at me

People stare and wonder why

I don´t wake up, don´t even try

It´s like a shock, I never even cry

Bring me back to where I was

I want to be my inner source

And not regret what may be lost, just fly                 

It´s that solitude again

Looking down at me

Ev´rytime I try to get some sleep

There´s no direction now

No more when or how

My mirror even shakes it´s head, it´s

Solitude again

Looking down at me

Ev´rytime I try to get some sleep

But nothing really matters when you´re blue

Nothing really matters except you

Nothing really matters ´cause it´s

Solitude again

Looking down at me

Ev´rytime I try to get some sleep

There´s no direction now

No more when or how

My mirror even shakes it´s head at

Solitude again

Looking down at me

Ev´rytime I try to get some sleep

There´s no direction now

No more when or how

My mirror even shakes it´s head at

Some sleep

Some sleep

Den Jydske Sjæl

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

    

En gade et sted,

En solsort, en have

En nabo, en ven var der

Min mor og min far

Min mormor, min morfar

Og alle som kom før mig var her

Aakjær skrev her

Bønder stred her

Det´ den jydske sjæl

Det´ den stille tone

Hvor hver rodfæsted rug

Står så værdigt endnu

Det´ den jydske sjæl

Den bli´r altid boende

Jeg ta´r  den med mig, ta´r den med mig

Ta´r den med

En gravhøj, en mark

Et skridt gennem kornet

Og verden var kæmpe stor

Et hjerte i fred

Med havre i hånden

Og foden solidt på denne jord

Aakjær skrev her

Bønder stred her

Aakjær skrev her

Det´ den jydske sjæl

Det´ den stille tone

Hvor hver rodfæsted rug

Står så værdigt endnu

Det´ den jydske sjæl

Den bli´r altid boende

For jeg ta´r den med mig, ta´r den med mig

Jeg ta´r den med

Det´ den jydske sjæl

Det´ den stille tone

Hvor hver rodfæsted rug

Står så værdigt endnu

Det´ den jydske sjæl

Den bli´r altid boende

For jeg ta´r den med mig, ta´r den med mig

Ta´r den med

Jeg ta´r den med

Det er nu

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Blade drysser

På mine tæer

Uanset igår

Er det nu efterår

Vinden vender

Til blæsevejr

Helt til hjertet går

Og heler mine sår

Det er nu, nu, nu, nu

 At du, du, du, du

 Ka´ gøre ting

Du virk´lig sku´

Og du ved, ved, ved, ved

Et sted, sted, sted, sted

 Helt indeni

Hva´ der vil du´ for dig

For dig

Lister rundt i sne

Om vinteren

På et stille sted

Kun sneen knirker med

Tænker lidt på dig

Og smiler så

En solsort ser på mig

Og hopper ad sin vej

Det er nu, nu, nu, nu

At du, du, du, du

Ka´ gøre ting

Som du virk´lig sku´

Og du ved et sted, sted, sted, sted

 Helt indeni

Hvad der vil du´ for dig

For dig

Blade drysser på mine tæer

Uanset i går

Er det nu efterår

Feen Danser

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Der er trin

Der ikke kan ses i sne

Ikke kan høres

Der er smil

Du ikke kan få at se

Førend du vil det

Der er ord

Der ikke kan skrives ned

Ikke ka´ ses

Der er tid

Der ikke kan finde sted

Førend du vil det

Men feen danser

Alfen lister

Drømme skabes

Nu

Uglen lytter

Natten venter

Dagen skabes

Nu

Der er vej

Der ikke kan føre frem

Ikke kan gåes

Der er sti

Der ikke kan føre hjem

Førend du vil det

Men feen danser

Alfen lister

Drømme skabes

Nu

Uglen lytter

Natten venter

Dagen skabes

Nu

Men feen danser

Alfen lister

Drømme skabes

Nu

Uglen lytter

Natten venter

Dagen skabes

Nu

Der er trin

Der ikke ka´ ses i sne

Ikke ka´ høres

Der er smil

Du ikke ka´ få at se

Førend du vil det

Førend du vil det

Førend du vil det

Førend du vil det

Førend du vil det

Hvad venter du på?

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Intet ka´ vende mig væk fra dig

Skønt dit ansigt det kikker en helt anden vej

Intet ka´ sende den tanke bort

Selv når scenen den drejer og går i sort, for

Hvad venter du på?

Tiden er nu – alt andet er vanvid

For nok skiller os ad, men

Det der er bedst, det samler jo alting

Andre ka´ mene li´e hvad de vil

At du kører mig rundt i din karroussel

Alle vil si´ e det er helt til grin

Men jeg ved i mit hjerte,

Der er du min

For hvad venter du på?

Tiden er nu, alt andet er vanvid

For nok skiller os ad

Men det der er bedst, det samler jo alting

Hvad venter du på?

Tiden er nu, alt andet er vanvid

For nok skiller os ad

Men det der er bedst, det samler jo alting

Intet ka´ vende mig væk fra dig

Skønt dit ansigt det kikker

En helt anden vej

Ingen ka´ se det

Når en stribe af vejen

Føles tung

Og du ikke kan se

Hvorfra du kom

Og ingen forstår

Dit hjerterum

Så har du mig

Så har du mig

Når et solstrej af dag

Bliver væk

Og natten er kul

Sort som blæk

Og ingen ka´ se

Vejen væk

Så har du mig

Så har du mig

For ingen ka´ se det

Hvis ikke de ve´ det

Men hjertet har fuldt overblik

Og ingenting skal der gøres

For alting er der sørget for

Hjertet har fuldt overblik

Når du ikke kan se

Hvor du skal

Og bekymringer er

Uten tall

Og alt hvad du vet

Står for fall

Så har du meg

Så har du meg

For ingen ka´ se det

Hvis ikke de ve´ det

Men hjertet har fuldt overblik

Og ingenting skal der gøres

For alting er der sørget for

Hjertet har fuldt overblik

Jeg elsker regnen

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Ingenting bli´r ingenting

Men nogen ting bli´r noget

Vender sig og ændrer sig igen

Alting bli´r til ingenting

Når tiden den er gået

Vender hjem og drejer rundt i ring

Jeg elsker regnen

Der vasker vejen

Jeg elsker regnen

I mit hår

Jeg elsker regnen

Der vasker vejen

Jeg elsker regnen

Mens vi går

Jeg elsker lyset

Der sender kysset

Jeg elsker lyset

På din kind

jeg elsker lyset

der sender kysset

jeg elsker lyset

og vil ind

Gennem skoven lysegrøn

Og gennem anemoner

Går vi sammen

Hånd i hånd

Igen

Vejen har ført vidt omkring

Igennem mange zoner

Ingen troed´ vist at vi

Fulgt´ med

Manawa, manawa, manawa, manawa

Ingenting bli´r ingenting

Men nogenting bli´r noget

Alting bli´r til ingenting

Når tiden den er gået

Vender hjem og drejer rundt i ring

Jeg elsker regnen

Der vasker vejen

Jeg elsker regnen

I dit hår

Jeg elsker regnen

Der vasker vejen

Mens vi går

Jeg elsker lyset

Der sender kysset

Jeg elsker lyset

På din kind

Jeg elsker lyset

Der sender kysset

Og vil ind

Sov nu

Nu er det nat

Sov nu

Du er så lille

Der er

Meget du skal

Førend

Det er på tide

Dagen er langt væk endnu

Rejsen bli´r lang kan du tro

Men sov nu

Sov nu

Himlen den blå

Sov nu

Den har nu stjerner på

Blomster

Lukker sig i

Skygger

Bliver nu lange

Nye

Ting du vil se

Der er

Endnu så mange

Månen den smiler herneded

Fuglene hviler et sted

Men sov

Sov nu

Himlen den blå

Sov nu

Den har nu stjerner på

Når julesneen falder hvid

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Snefnug daler stille udenfor

Og sammen skuer vi det nye år lidt alene

Kirkeklokken kimer sine klare slag

Men juletræet købes en tilfædig dag lad nu

Håbet findes inderst ind´

Når julesneen falder hvid

I midten af december

Og verden virker mere mild og blid

Så må vi finde sammen her

Når julesneen falder hvid

Og lyset sig her sænker

Og ledestjernen blinker ned med kærlighed

Og fortæller om en magisk tid

Mens vi er her

Li´ så længe vi er her

Endnu

Virkelige engle kikker venligt ned

Og tænder deres lygter nu i nat, så vi ser det

Virkelige engle kikker venligt ned

Og smiler lidt tålmodigt nok fordi de ved

At håbet findes inderst ind´

Når julesneen falder hvid

I midten af december

Og verden virker mere mild og blid

Så må vi finde sammen her

Når julesneen falder hvid

Og lyset sig her sænker

Og ledestjernen blinker ned med kærlighed

Fortæller om en magisk tid

Når julesneen falder hvid

I midten af december

Og verden virker mere mild og blid

Så må vi finde sammen her

Når julesneen falder hvid

Og lyset sig her sænker

Og ledestjernen blinker ned med kærlighed

Fortæller om en magisk tid

Mens vi er her

Li´så længe vi er her

endnu

Op og ned

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Alting er

Ændret

Ingenting er

li´ som før

Det vi tør

Er vi

Dine kys

Brændte

Tog mig ind

Bag din dør

Det vi gør

Er vi

Du har vendt mig op og ned

Jeg har ikke følt det her i

Lang, lang tid

Du har ta´et mit hjerte med

Jeg er blevet blød af al din

Kærlighed

Som en gnist

Ramte

Uden ord

Og varsel først

Sluk min tørst

Med det

 

Du har vendt mig op og ned

Jeg har ikke følt det her i

Lang, lang tid

Du har ta´et mit hjerte med

Jeg er blevet blød af al din

Kærlighed

Og hver gang

Du ta´r mit hjerte op

Jeg mærker på min krop

Lys

Du har vendt mig op og ned

Jeg har ikke følt det her i

Lang, lang tid

Du har ta´et mit hjerte med

Jeg er blevet blød af al din

Kærlighed

Du har vendt mig op og ned

Jeg har ikke følt det her i

Lang, lang tid

Du har ta´et mit hjerte med

Jeg er blevet blød af al din

Kærlighed

Og hver gang

Du ta´r mit hjerte op

Jeg mærker på min krop

lys

Ovre dig

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Jeg venter på et tog på et sted, hvor det er regnvejr

Og inde i et skur står et helt nyforelsket par

Jeg vender mig omkring for at se på noget andet

Men det gør mig ingenting det er jo alt i alt en helt fin dag, for jeg er

Ovre dig

Jeg tænker på dig hele tiden, men jeg er

Ovre dig

Jeg tjekker li´e din hjemmeside

Alting går jo godt så udefra ku´ det jo let se ud som om, at jeg er

Ovre dig

Ovre dig

Det´ hyg´ligt nok når vi engang i mellem løber på hinanden

Det´ hyg´ligt nok at høre lidt om hvordan det hele går

Men det ska´ ikke få dig til at tro, at du er manden

Og hvis min´ øjne er lidt blanke er det ikke tårer, for jeg er

Ovre dig

Jeg tænker på dig hele tiden, men jeg er

Ovre dig

Jeg tjekker li´e din hjemmeside

Alting går jo godt så udefra ku´ det jo let se ud som om….

Nogle gange før jeg går i seng, ser jeg mig i et spejl, og

Spør´ mig selv om det ku´ tænkes Guderne denne gang tog fejl?

Jeg venter på et tog på et sted hvor det er regnvejr

Og inde i et skur står et helt nyforelsket par

Jeg vender mig omkring for at se på noget andet, men jeg er

Ovre dig

Jeg tænker på dig hele tiden, men jeg er

Ovre dig

Jeg tjekker li´e din hjemmeside

Alting går jo godt så udefra ku´ det jo let se ud som om, at jeg er

Ovre dig, at jeg er

Ovre dig, at jeg er

Ovre dig, at jeg er

Ovre dig

Se med hjertet 

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Så mange dage

Så mange lys

Så mange folk

Der mødes i et kys

Så mange veje

Så mange stier

Så mange drenge

Og så mange unge piger

En længsel efter en drøm

En længsel om evig fred

Se med hjertet

Se et menneske

Se med hjertet

Vore øjne ser ej alting

Så mange år

Så mange chancer

Så mange åer

Og så mange broer brændt

Så meget håb

I så mange øjne

Så meget svig

Så mange løgne

En længsel efter en drøm

En længsel efter en drøm

En længsel om evig fred

Se med hjertet

Se et menneske

Se med hjertet

Vore øjne ser ej alting

Se med hjertet

Se et menneske

Se med hjertet

Vore øjne ser ej alting

Vore øjne ser aj alting

Soldaten

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Der´ stille nu i nat

Stille nu mens dagen vågner

Stille nu mens lyser brænder

Stille nu i nat

En stjernehimmel stor

En stjernehimmel klar og stor

Der lyser ned og gi´r  ham mod

I hjerte, sjæl og sind

Men han ved det ikke

Er det i dag

Er det mon nu

Han falder

Han venter kun

Den nye dag

Han venter kun

På morgengry

Hans tanke rejser hjem

Måske er de nu stået op

Den lille med den varme krop

Ved søvnigt morgenbord

Og månen kikker med

Han mærker hvert et øjeblik

Sekunders alt for stille skridt

I mod den kolde jord

Men han

Ved det ikke

Er det i dag

Er det mon nu

Han falder

Han venter kun

Den nye dag

Han venter kun

På morgengry

Han venter kun

På morgengry

Vil ha´dig

Tekst og musik: Maria Elizabeth Hersing

Lokker mig ud af vinterhi

Gi´r mig en drøm som jeg bli´r

Væk i

Kruser et smil omkring din mund

Jeg vil kun, kun, kun, kun, kun

Ta´r mig af sted op på en sky

Hen til et sted

Hvor jeg er

Helt ny

Mindre distræt ethvert sekund

Tænker jeg kun, kun, kun, kun, kun, kun, kun

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha dig

Jeg vil ha dig

Jeg vil

Holder mig væk endnu en dag

Tænker at det her har jeg

Nok a´

Jeg er trods alt en voksen pi´e

Men jeg vil li´e, li´e, li´e, li´e

Vipper mig altid a´ min pind

Det er nu ellers ikke

Så nemt

Men med det blik  som du ka´ gi´

Hvad ska´ jeg si´e, si´e, si´e, si´e, si´e

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

 Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Hjerteløse længsel

I hjertets eget fængsel

Jeg falder og falder og falder og falder og falder og falder, åh

Jeg vil ha´ dig, vil ha´ dig, vil ha´ dig, jeg vil ha´ dig, vil ha´ dig,

Jeg vil ha´ dig, vil ha´ dig, vil ha´ dig, jeg vil ha´ dig, vil ha´ dig, dig, dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil ha´ dig

Jeg vil
