    BUCKLE HER SHOE

    one two buckle her shoe
    tell her she must follow you
    three four tell her that you’re
    the one that she’s been waiting for

    five six tell her you fix
    ailing hearts with magic tricks
    seven eight tell her it’s fate
    that she landed on your plate

    nine ten don’t say it again
    or you’ll find the day arriving when
    you wait and wait outside her door
    but baby don’t wanna play no more

    one two buckle her shoe
    say she can live her life with you
    three four never quite sure
    if she’s worth a little bit more

    five six invent new tricks
    you can add to your secret mix
    step back let her drink her fill
    seven and eight and counting still

    nine ten don’t say it again
    or you’ll find the day arriving when
    you wait and wait outside her door
    but baby don’t wanna play no more

    she’s biding her time and counting the days
    till she escapes his scheming ways
    oh aaaiiii… oh aaaiiii
    then free of him and buckled shoes
    she’ll heal her heart with a barefoot blues
    oh aaaiiiii… oh aaaiiii
    and leave him wondering why

    THE DANCE FLOOR
    let me stay in this hour
    a Cinderella at her ball
    and may all that is not you and me
    just fade into nothing at all

    she can set my mind spinning
    by the beating of her heart
    then locked in a dance we keep clinging
     to lives that are drifting apart

    dance with me dance with me
    lift me and carry me
    off to a place we
    can cling to a fantasy

    dance with me dance with me
    say there’s a chance it’s me
    that I am the one you’ve been searching for…
    yearning for… oh let it be so
    while we’re still out here on the floor

    is this the fateful hour
    when I must flee from the ball
    and all that was ever you and me
     turns back into nothing at all

    there is no «rags to riches»
    no golden coach for her to ride
    and no slipper of glass to try on
    like all other princes I lied

    dance with me dance with me
    lift me and carry me
    off to a place we
    can cling to a fantasy
    dance with me dance with me
    say there’s a chance it’s me
    that I am the one you’ve been searching for…
    longing for… oh let it be so
    while we’re still out here on the floor

    THE LEAVING

    you can walk away from this
    break the chain of days… there’s nothing left to miss
    now’s the fateful hour you’ve no time to think
    of how he’s going to face all his tomorrows

    you can walk away from it all
    there is no way that you can ever break his fall
    but he will learn to love again as time goes by
    you know your touch will just add to all his sorrows

    she stands beside herself and forms the words she needs to say
    afraid that once they’re spoken they will not wash away
    imagining as time goes by I’ll learn to love again
    in some other life
    as time goes by… as time goes by

    can’t lead the life I’ve led
    trapped inside another’s needy heart and head choking on the countless things we leave unsaid no way can I be

    here now that it’s over

    he stands beside himself and forms the words he needs to say
    but only gets things said when she’s too far away
    still dreaming that as time goes by I’ll learn to love again
    in some other life
    as time goes by… as time goes by

    A CRYING SHAME

    My heart is not lonely or broken
    It’s not of ice or of gold
    Nor has my heart ever spoken
    To me when a love has grown cold
     I felt not the faintest flatter
    When you brushed my cheek as you passed
    Nor will I willingly clutter
    My life with these thing that don’t last

    Be still my heart
    My heart be still
    Be still my heart
    My heart be still

    If our eyes should meet then so be it
    No need to trouble the heart
    That is hidden where no one can free it
    Only to tear it apart

    Be still my heart
    My heart be still
    Be still my heart
    My heart be still

    Beware, beware
    (be still my heart)
    to care, to care
    (be still my heart)
    beware, beware
    (be still my heart )
    to care, to care
    (my heart be still)
    beware, beware (
    be still my heart)
    My heart

    COME WALK AROUND

    I took a train to where I used to be
    to that place where I’m just me
    where all the streets I’ve ever known
    talk to me and take me home

    oh come walk around just walk around
    and share my story
    do the rounds in my home town
    let’s leave behind
    everything that haunts our minds
    be fancy-free and turn back time

    I gathered up those heavy shades of grey
    packed their bags… sent them away
    and let the old town I knew so well
    hold me in its magic spell

    oh come walk around just walk around
    and share my story
    do the rounds in my home town
    let’s leave behind
    everything that haunts our minds
    be fancy-free and turn back time

    refr.

    tears in my eyes
    so much to lose
    still searching for my
    own cure for the blues
    time to look back
    with a smile or a sigh
    and walk through the town with no thought of goodbyes

    LADY CHARLOTTE

    Lady Charlotte makes demands
    snaps her fingers and commands
    all she sees… it’s all she knows
    but day by day her sadness grows

    Lady Charlotte lose your crown
    our stairs go neither up nor down
    our loving care cannot be bought
    and silver spoons they count for nought

    the smile of she who serves you tea
    may be the last you ever see
    may be the one to make you whole
    salve your body… calm your soul

    Lady Charlotte speaks her mind
    says decent help is hard to find
    one has to let them know who’s boss
    draw the lines they musn’t cross

    but like a child lies listening for
    that gentle knock upon her door
    the voice… the warmth… the pure delight
    of strangers wishing her goodnight

    the smile of she who serves you tea
    may be the last you ever see
    may be the one to make you whole
    salve your body… calm your soul

    the angels here don’t sport their wings
    bewitch you with their whisperings

    THOSE RAINY NIGHTS

    don’t have to hide anymore
    from those dark rainy nights
    he left at my door
    with a note saying how
    he would warm me when those stormy
    late-night hours looked over my shoulder

    but those rainy nights are coming to an end
    the clouds are slowly lifting I see starry skies again
    I’ll save that midnight oil that I’ve been burning
    starlight tells me that my luck is turning

    those rainy nights have had their final word
    filled my head and heart until… nothing else was heard
    I’ve tried sheltering from the stormy weather
    but clouds drift in whenever we’re together

    Oh how I wished that clouds just might
    have silver linings
    I wonder why

    I won’t make a dash for the door
    won’t miss those rainy nights
    start longing for more
    and yet his words still
    come to haunt me
    charm and taunt me

    like drops of rain dancing before me

    but those rainy nights are coming to an end
    the clouds are slowly lifting
    I see starry skies again
    I’ll save the midnight oil I’ve been burning
    starlight tells me that my luck is turning

    those rainy nights have had their final word
    filled my head and heart until nothing else was heard
    but lately I’ve let those clouds drift by
    biding my time ’til clearer skies
    arrive to make hope out of heartache s
    o that I can look love in the eye

    but still I wish each night… clouds just might
    have silver linings
    I wonder why

    TWO FOR THE ROAD

    one eye on my glass
    the other on the door
    it’s strange but you’ll find bar-room stools
    can make you take one more

    he’s gone but he’s coming back
    I’ve far too much to lose
    don’t need to hack
    a fresh attack
    of wee-small-hour blues

    two for the road
    but nothing more for me
    it just turns sweet sorrow
    into the blues you see
    two for the road
    is how it has to be
    I would rather hit the road
    than have the road hit me

    so here’s to status quo
    when Love and Life are kind
    don’t want to sink
    another drink
    and fog this state of mind

    it’s time for calling cabs
    and calling it a night
    don’t want to wait
    till it’s too late
    to tell what’s wrong from right

    two for the road
    but nothing more for me
    it just turns sweet sorrow
    into the blues you see
    two for the road
    is how it has to be
    I would rather hit the road
    than have the road hit me

    CAFE DE FLORE

    a Le Café De Flore
    at tables for two she raises her glass
    to love she once knew
    and drinks to herself it is all she can do
    when nobody knows her name

    but while she is waiting
    for life to restart
    consumed by the longing
    that eats at her heart
    she’ll sit by the window
    keep playing her part
    where nobody knows her name

    she sees that her dream’s had its hour
    and neither sunlight nor shower
    can make her heart flower
    now that he’s gone… she keeps waiting
    she cannot wither or grow
    cos he loved her so… ooooo
    and nobody knows his name

    her life’s become bangles
    mascara and pain
    a wasteland where shadow
    and loneliness reign
    where rituals stop her
    from going insane
    when nobody knows her name

    she sees that her dream’s had it hour
    and neither sunlight nor shower
    can make her heart flower
    now that he’s gone… she keeps waiting
    she cannot wither or grow
    cos he loved her so… ooooooo
    and nobody knows his name

    HUNTING HIGH AND LOW

    Here I am
    And within the reach of my hands
    She sounds asleep and she’s sweeter now
    Than the wildest dream could have seen her
    And I Watch her slipping away
    Though I know I’ll be hunting high and low

    High
    There’s no end to the lengths I’ll go to
    Hunting high and low
    High
    There’s no end to lengths I’ll go

    To find her again
    Upon this my dreams are depending
    Through the dark
    I sense the pounding of her heart
    Next to mine
    She’s the sweetest love I could find
    So I guess I’ll be hunting high and low

    High
    There’s no end to the lengths I’ll go to
    High and Low
    High
    Do you know what it means to love you…

    I’m hunting high and low
    And now she’s telling me she’s got to
    go away
    I’ll always be hunting high and low
    Hungry for you
    Watch me tearing myself to pieces
    Hunting high and low

    High
    There’s no end to the lengths I’ll go to
    Oh, for you I’ll be hunting high and low

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.
