    ALL I HAD

    I filled my days with all that tasted sweet
    seeing only what I dared to meet
    said stones were there to step on not to turn
    too full of dreaming to learn

    I worked my will and fingers to the bone
    forging shapes that I could call my own
    and thought that I had found some magic touch…
    I’d turn nothing into much

    you were all I had
    you let me lie in the corner of your eye
    safe and sound from danger
    in everything I tried
    when darkness filled my
    days you willed me back on my way
    and saw me home

    in days now filled with all things bitter sweet
    and spent in wondering where to place my feet
    the stones I used before still play their part
    weighing heavy on my heart

    you are all I have
    you let me lie in the corner of your eye
    safe and sound from danger
    in everything I try
    when darkness fills my
    days you will me back on my way
    and see me home

    NORWEGIAN BOATSONG
    Lina takes her boat and rows
    to places only Lina knows
    and will not rest upon the oars
    before she reaches safer shores

    the mist that rolls in from the sea
    beckons her says come to me
    I will hide youmake you whole
    when mindless days disturb your soul

    hidden skerries razor rocks
    are better than the stumbling blocks
    living places in your way
    and you must side-step every day

    Lina, Lina why the tears
    no need to weep for she who steers
    her boat to secret silver bays
    where hearts can heal and mend their ways

    the weeping will be done by those
    who pace the shore and cannot know
    for all the beacons that they burn
    whether Lina will return

    GOD’S MISTAKES

    I’m gonna be black
    I’m gonna be white
    I’m gonna try every shade
    thats ever been made
    till I finally get it right
    I’m gonna be soft
    I’m gonna be hard
    and whats better yet
    gonna place every bet
    on somebody elses cards

    add it on,take it off, .change your shape
    while you wait
    youve gotta learn by Gods mistakes

    gonna worship my hair
    gonna pamper my skin
    Im gonna try to keep
    my beauty skin-deep
    and let it shine out from within
    I’m gonna be rash
    I’m gonna be wise
    never bearing a grudge
    if living should smudge
    the makeup I’ve put on my eyes

    add it on, take it off, change your shape
    while you wait
    youve gotta learn by Gods mistakes

    I’m gonna walk tall
    but be ready to duck
    gonna get me a life
    at one with the knife
    and close to my next nip-and-tuck
    Im gonna be full
    of myself and mine
    gonna shop till I drop
    and never say stop
    till I’ve finished Gods design

    ORDINARY SADNESS
    so she opens windows wide
    tries to catch the light
    her house just grows a little darker
    no place to hide anywhere in sight

    tries rearranging household things
    hopes this will bring some change
    and uncover traces of her life
    before the emptiness arrives
    she moves things around with a sigh
    like pawns in a game that can save her from questioning why
    then leaves the room and lets another day go by

    its just an ordinary sadness
    that grips her from within
    theres no pure and simple reason
    for the darkness rolling in
    its just an ordinary sadness
    preying on her mind
    reminding her of something left behind
    its just an ordinary life

    she spends her days sifting through
    old photos she’s found
    and places them like giant milestones
    along the road to where she feels her life is bound

    she gathers in the joys she owns
    and she spreads them all around
    hopes they will trigger laughter
    breathing in .breathing out some other life
    like the sighing of wind in the trees just before rain
    and flooding her eye
    those foolish tears she weeps for all the years gone by

    its just an ordinary sadness
    that grips her from within
    theres no pure and simple reason
    for the darkness rolling in
    its just an ordinary sadness
    preying on her mind
    reminding her of something left behind
    its just an ordinary life

    where did it all get up and leave her
    to a world she had not planned
    drifting out of reach and far from land

    its just an ordinary sadness
    that grips her from within
    theres no pure and simple reason
    for the darkness rolling in
    its just an ordinary sadness
    preying on her mind
    reminding her of something left behind
    its just an ordinary life

    WHEN THE MORNING COMES

    I’ll tell her when the morning comes
    but leave her all the wonder
    tell her of those city lights
    whose spell shes under
    my words will all sound hollow
    and too old for her heart to follow

    I’ll tell her of a girl I knew
    no names or ages
    then as mothers often do
    I’ll start to turn back pages
    and let her know I see her
    but never try to be her

    fight back tears
    swallow fears and
    be happy that she
    is so thrilled by all she sees
    and remembering how it feels

    I’ll tell her when the morning comes
    but now she’s sleeping
    I’ll just hold her close and guard
    the secrets she needs keeping
    I follow her in sorrow
    into a world I cant borrow

    DET VAR FOR SENT
    Du sa så god den var
    den første morgenen
    Så lys og fin den drømmen var
    som ble virkelig den lange fine våren.

    Jeg sa hvor ble den av
    den gode tiden
    En storm, men uten opprørt hav
    og en kjærlighet som var forandret siden

    Og det var for sent
    det var forbi
    Alt vi skulle gjøre, ord vi burde si
    Når det var for sent, det var forbi
    Alt vi kunne vinne, kjærlighet som var å finne
    i et annet liv, våre liv
    Alle dager som forsvant

    Du sa her er vi nå
    Her stanset tiden
    Vi har et valg å vinne på
    velge drømmen og for alltid leve i den

    Før det er for sent, det er forbi
    Alt vi skulle gjøre, ord vi burde si
    Før det er for sent, det er forbi
    Alt har vi å vinne, kjærlighet som vi kan finne
    i et annet liv, eller våre liv
    gode ting vi fant
    Alle dager som forsvant

    WHEN OUR TUNE IS PLAYED

    waking from a dream
    can be so hard to bear
    discovering the scheme
    of thingsa sad affair

    moving in a trance
    we sway from side to side
    and when our tune is played..we dance

    I can take the cold
    awakenings may bring
    those dreams I cannot hold
    will never mean a thing

    I have no use you see
    for flights of fantasy
    as long as you are here with me

    HE MUST HAVE BEEN TELLING A LIE

    I see it written in his eyes
    the fear that I will cut him down in size
    Ill never try to make him crawl
    hell know if hes deserves to walk on tall

    revenge is sweet. or so were told
    but even sweeter when its served up cold
    he looks at me and saysbecause
    I look at him and miss the man he was

    everyone but me has seen them painting the town
    turning every head and my world upside down
    whispering all his tender words wrapped up in a sigh
    when he said them to me
    he must have been telling a lie

    my golden rule has been in life
    when someones hurting you dont twist the knife
    he looks at me and says I wish
    I look at him and see a sea full of fish

    everyone but me has seen them painting the town
    turning every head and my world upside down
    whispering all his tender words wrapped up in a sigh
    when he said them to me
    he must have been telling a lie

    she fills my hour steals my days
    leaving me so empty handed
    she never planned to be a one-life stand
    but she was his and he was hers
    two lovers walking hand in hand

    I WILL WRITE YOU EVERY DAY

    I will write you every day
    write the words I cannot say
    and hope that they will find their way
    to you and bring you near
    close enough for words to do everything I need them to

    I will spend each waking hour
    counting seconds pacing floors
    rehearsing what I ought to write
    and finding ways to say
    that lifes so good
    now that youre still mine and I am yours

    oh but what if words should fail
    hearts and memories pale
    how would we reach each other
    and say for evermore
    if all that would be left of us
    were letters just gathering dust
    and so far from sight
    every word I ever write

Al Jarreau.
I was only 14-15 years old listening to his album We Got By, and I knew every little phrase and scat by heart. I could sing the whole album in harmony and I spent hours in my room with these songs. Al jarreau was my first true musical hero.
Later, I was so lucky to sing with him for real. Al came to Oslo to record a duet with me, and we sang live together several times. He became a special friend. We invited him for dinner in our house in Oslo, Heine cooked bacalao for him, and Al sang Take Five for my little daughter Karla in my livingroom, backing himself only with his knife and fork. We all kept smiling for many days after he`d left.
Al was an extremely generous and kind man. He made everyone feel special. He was just like his songs.. playful and totally free..,not limited to any genre. He opened the door into music for me.
I am so sad that he as passed away.
But he won`t stop singing. My signed vinyl We Got By will keep playing out loud in my living room.. and I keep doing the scat singing with him, in harmony. Thank you Al Jarreau.

Michael CzernetzkiHe was one of my favorite (Jazz) musicians. Casino lights was my first CD even before I had a CD player and his open air concert in Stadtwäldchen in Budapest in 1996? was the most intimate.
