about

My ancestors lived on a Fjord in Norway...
This is my second full length album and its title is Fjords. In many ways I believe that it is very different from Corridors, but at the same time very much alike. The drive and influence behind the songs strongly relate to those of Corridors. These themes will never be erased from my music because they have influenced my life so much that I couldn't possibly stop writing about them. Fjords is about growth and change. Exploring the unexplored and seeking new vantage points. I think that each song stands for itself and has a separate message rather than contributing to an overall theme. I would try to tell you what each song is about and what actually inspired each one, but that is something I do not even completely know yet. I wrote all these songs as they came to me without stopping to question what they meant or why they existed in my head. So with that said, maybe you can help me with uncovering what they mean by listening to them and discovering for yourself an explanation of its own. With time and aging, perhaps each song will reveal itself.

Track Name: Machine
lyrics:
Swim so fast but sink so low you think too long and you never know.
Take your leave. You've done enough, the time was yours but now its up.

Hopelessly, lay your head and start to dream
Rapidly, close your eyes so you can dream.

You cant take what isn't yours. If you give it back, you'll be restored.
Machines replaced all these trees. We still recall what couldn't be.


Hopelessly, lay your head and start to dream
Rapidly, close your eyes so you can dream
Track Name: Sporting Chance
Make a list of all your friends. Then close your eyes and walk away from me.

Im gonna ask you this just one time. Just one time

Did you write me down?
Did you write me down?

It doesn't matter how many we have.
What matters is how much they care.
What matters is how much they care.

Did you write me down? (repeated)
Track Name: Azimuth
Thrown to the streets of a town you love.
You cant stand on your feet.
Trying so hard just to stay alive.
Your heart pumps to this drum beat.

You are the only one I see.
And that can only mean that you and I are one.
You are the only hope for me
and that can only mean that you and I are one.

If you just give me some time.
I could be the one you find. If you just give me some time...

If you just give me some time.
I could be the one you find.

You are the only one I see.
And that can only mean that you and I are one.
You are the only hope for me
and that can only mean that you and I are one.
Track Name: Riptide
I cant keep up with this.
I need to take a trip.
I need some peace of mind,
but then its you I find.
I never planned for this,
so now im feelin' it.
So now im feelin' it

You Hit me like a riptide
pull me away from shore.

Im in a different place now
strange enough I see the sounds
everything looks black and white
and yet full of color at the same time

You Hit me like a riptide
pull me away from shore.



Alternate ending (Our Plan)

Keep to our plan
and don't look back.
Track Name: Fjords
Rain is falling hard it'll turn to snow tonight.
Just like your pretty face when time begins to dim the light.
Turn around and I wont even look the same
but you'll know its me when I begin to sing your name, oh no.

We can live tonight
We can give tonight
Track Name: Marina
Skip a stone and watch it sink.
Don't try to move just sit and think.
Take the jump. You're on the brink
Don't try to breathe, just hold it in.

Open your eyes to see
What you could really be
Wont you try to break free?
Or are these walls too steep?

Don't hold back from letting go
of All the stones you always hold
They weigh you down
and make you cold
please let them go
yes, let them go

Open your eyes to see
What you could really be
Wont you try to break free?
OR are these walls to steep?
Track Name: Lingonberry
Keeping up with you is like trying to outrun a sunset
Like two old friends who have never ever met
Like we're on the same page but just not the same book
like a shooting star, but we never ever looked

We always run
our feet undone
on paths that seem
to never meet

keeping up with you is like running circles in the dark
like im feeling something, but nothing in my heart
and its killing me inside
but who knows maybe its right

We always run
our feet undone
on paths that seem
to never meet
Track Name: Never Strangers
I watched your heart turn to gold
I watched your fire turn to coals
You grew so tall
Now watch me fall

You don't have to leave to get somewhere
You don't have to be a stranger anywhere
You can finally learn to love without fear
we can make a home with what we have right here.
Track Name: Mirror Image
Talking at the mirror
Im falling down a well
and I cant even tell
what I know to myself

So I broke it into pieces
with every single reason
Cause I just cant seem to find
a reflection that is mine.

and I just cant seem to find
A reflection that is mine
Track Name: Binary Love
Sometimes we don't take enough
Sometimes we take too much
we take too much time to say what we need
to say to the ones we love

all of this time I didn't know
I didn't know what to do
so when the time came I made up my mind
to take nothing and just go

sometimes you just have to wait unitl
everything settles down
sometimes we live to fast as it seems
we don't even look around
we don't even look around

all of this time I didn't know
I didn't know what to do
so when the time came I made up my mind
to take nothing and just go
sometimes you just have to wait unitl
everything settles down
sometimes we live to fast as it seems
we don't even look around
we don't even look around
Track Name: Parallel Place
AS we look around trying to find more
we start to see its all been done before
If we try to leave everyone behind
We know that we will always find

you're in the same place as before
in the same place as before

look at yourself in the mirror
and it might become clearer

you're in the same place as before
Track Name: Up in Arms
We run to the top of the hill and we just cant stop
its not a race against the clock but we know we've got
only one last shot

the field and the tress and the grass turning green to red
Im always listening but that's not what you said
whats in your head?

Im always listening
and that's not what you said
Track Name: Teach Me
Its the last day
that im going to fight
its the last way
to make this right
tie this blind fold
across my eyes
and catch my falls
and I will try

to walk like you
and talk like you
and fill your shoes

cause I know

How do you know
if you've grown?
how do you know
if you've let go?

TEACH ME THE WAYS OF THE SEA
HOLD MY HAND DONT LEAVE
