Lyrics,

THE BLUE LIGHT OF A STAR REMAINS

THIS GREY ROOM HAS ME IN HIS HANDS

REFLECTION IN THE DOOR GLASS

AMPLIFIES THE BEAUTY OF THAT STAR

THE BLUE LIGHT OF A STAR REMAINS

THIS GREY ROOM HAS ME IN HIS HANDS

REFLECTION IN THE DOOR GLASS

IS EVERYWHERE

I DIDN’T WANT TO BE A CIRCUS’ JUGGLER

OR A CASINO’S CROUPIER

YOU TOOK MY HEART AT A GLANCE

WARM ME UP ON THE SEASHORE

IS THIS LOVE RIGHT

FOR A MAN OF THE WRONG COLOUR?

YOU CAN’T GO AGAINST GRAIN

IMPOSING ANTI-HUMAN LAWS!

IS THIS LOVE RIGHT

FOR A MAN OF THE WRONG COLOUR?

YOU CAN’T GO AGAINST GRAIN

IMPOSING ANTI-HUMAN LAWS!

I CAN SEE

YOUR DARK HAIR REFLECTED

IN THE SKY

THE FLAMING LIGHT

OF YOUR EYES

GAINS COLOUR AT DAWN

-SOLO

FEEL YOUR HEAT

ON MY SKIN

BUT YOU ARE FAR AWAY

(SO) FAR AWAY FROM ME

FEEL YOUR HEAT

ON MY SKIN

BUT YOU ARE FAR AWAY

(SO) FAR AWAY FROM ME

THE SOUNDS OF YOUR LAUGHTER

RESOUND IN MY MIND

THE HANGMAN

HAS ISSUED

HIS VERDICT!

SO ALL I HAVE TO DO

IS WAITING FOR

MY TIME TO COME

MY SWEET LOVE

I FALL ASLEEP

AND YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
