BERITH  LYRICS

" Lift Me Up"
( Berit Haapoldoey & Eirik Grønner )

Lift me up, like you've always done
Take me back to dreams like I am young


I grew up, when hopes n' fields were green
I was told, I could catch any dream
And I went looking, but lost my aim in haste
broken dreams, are bitter to the taste


All the days, I feel just in-between;
- that perfect life, I have never seen
Can't touch tomorrow, and yesterday is gone
I guess today, will have to be the one


chorus
Lift me up, like you've always done
Take me back to dreams like I am young
Lift me up, to know that I belong,
a sense that life has meaning, all along
Let me find...  Magic's never gone..


I can feel, in the rain and wind and sun
All the people, the friendships I have won
And the close ones, who move my heart with love
All the kindness, that lifts my eyes above

"Give Me Nothing To Do"
( Dag Atle Håland, Eirik Grønner, Berit Haapoldoey )

I wake from dreams with a smile, a moment - then it's gone
A hammer hits my mind; "I should have dones"

Some more piles on everyday - half again's too much
The more I push, I lag - I've lost my touch..

Chorus
Give me nothing to do, and I will take all day
Give me something to prove, and I will walk away
Time used to be my friend - Time was on my side
Let's get together again, don't run and hide

I know this has to end, the hardest word being "No"
Past the point of return, I guess it shows

'Been holding on far too long, why so scared to let go
cause I long to be bored, like you don't know..
Chorus out

" Far away "
( Berit Haapoldoey, Eirik Grønner )
Grandad was a big strong man, worked so hard to clear the land
Everything for his family, eight sons and daughters he had to feed
Farm was small and the land was poor, never could it carry more
He would tell no make believe, some of you boys have to leave
Chorus
Far away my boy, Far away my boy
leave to find, what you're looking for
Far away my boy, Far away my boy
You can find, what you're looking for
Word came in from across the sea, a promised land for the brave and free
A future bright for young and old, virgin lands the story told
In the that land across the sea, is where my daddy fathered me
He spoke of home, his deep old ties, of how the light danced in the skies
Chorus
Far away my boy, Far away my boy
leave to find, what you're looking for
Far away my boy, Far away my boy
You can find, what you're looking for

" You Could Be Mine "
( Berit Haapoldoey & Eirik Grønner )

Acapella intro (Chorus)
In another place or time I would hold you
In another world, you could be mine
Then I would know, how it would feel,
when you put, your hand in mine

Verse 1 & 2
I see you walking down my street, in the mornings
But I am not sure, if you really see me too
You look so sad, and you're never smiling,
so maybe life, is not treating you so good
I'd really like, to try and get to know you
I like the way, you look up to the sky
Do you know I'm looking for you,
and I dream about you every night


Chorus
In another place or time I would hold you
In another world you could be mine
Then I would know, how it would feel,
when you put, your hand in mine
When you put, your hand in mine
I want to see, love light up your eyes
I want to see you smiling to the world
Every child, needs hope to trust the future
I want to show you, there's happiness and love


middle part
Why you touch, my heart, everyday
And I don't, know how, still I'll find a way
To show you - To love you


quiet chorus   +  Chorus out

" Waiting For Me"  
( Berit Haapoldoey & Eirik Grønner )
Verse 1&2
Is there anybody out there, waiting for me
Is there anybody out there, my eyes can't see
Will my prayers ever be answered, will my dream come true
Will my life be complete, when I finally find you..


Will you be the one who, fade the darkness away
Will you be the one who, bring my night into day
And for years I have been searching, for some kind of twin
I ran out of outside, tried looking within..


Chorus
a Long, long way, crossing my tracks each day
Every turn, like it's waiting for me to learn
Looking through the ashes, of illusions I've burned
Finding something better, the tide may have turned
Maybe I have met you, are you're already here ?
we can walk on toghether, in laughter and tears..
Theme
(quiet) Verse 3
Here I am still walking, there's a sunrise to see
maybe you are waiting, are you waiting for me ?
I am almost ready, to give something true
I'm not afraid, of freedom for you..

Chorus
Out- Theme

" Right  Kind "
( Berit Haapoldoey & Eirik Grønner )

It felt so easy, at the start
like nothing, could ever tear us apart
As time goes by, small things come in our way
We look and find, some kind of trouble every day

Too many times now; a needless fight
There are words, I wish I could rewrite
I can face, each morning sharp and bright
When I know, I'm not alone to face the night

( Chorus )
Just the right kind of people, Just the right kind of plans
Don't you forget it's all in our hands
This love, was made to set us free
And if getting it right, ain't letting it go;
Pieces are broken, but fit somehow
This love;  a place for you and me
Ooh - This love was made, to set us free

Oh I know, I want to hold on
Oh I know, maybe the best, is yet to come


( Chorus - out )

" Not the one "
( Berit Haapoldoey & Eirik Grønner )
1 verse
We can go, out On the town, I feel safe, when you're around
You can keep, me warm at night, when I am cold, you hold me tight
You can dry, away my tears, keep at bay all of my fears
but there is something I can't undo:  I'm not in love, In love with you


Chorus
I don't know how,  I don't know when, but I have to stop, to pretend
How can i tell you, this is wrong - it is not with me, you belong
How can I tell you, its all wrong - It's not with me, you belong..


2 verse
Days and weeks keep passing by, can't find the words my mouth goes dry
I am scared of hurting you, guess the lie, hurts more than truth
You still keep me warm at night, but of my soul I'm losing sight
There is something I can't undo:  I'm not in love, In love with you


Chorus


out verse
I'll let you go, still call you friend.. Even if, it all will end
I hope one day, you will forgive, and you find, a good life to live..

" Black Dog "
( Berit Haapoldoey & Eirik Grønner)

A state of war, inside of me
I don't understand, the fight won't let me be
I try to hide, stay out of sight
The world can't see, the black dog's my enemy


Chorus
Everybody have a story, and demons to bring to light
Like a battlefield inside, forget what is wrong or right
In this crazy world we live in, have to make it on our own
But the Black Dog keeps following, wherever I go..

I want to reach, out to you
To make you see, what I'm going through
I'm all alone, fighting wears me thin
I need a hand, If I should ever win


Chorus


Middle part
I wish I could leave it all behind, to another place or time
I wish I could set my spirit free, and find a better, life for me


Quiet Chorus
Out  Chorus

" Dear Ocean "
( Eirik Grønner & Berit Haapoldoey )

In quiet high summers, and sunshine so bright
Through winter storms biting, with power and might
From morning to nighttime, tricks with the light
Shapes dancing out there, like dreams in the night

Chorus
Oh my Love - Deep Ocean - Always with me
 My Love - Wide Ocean - Dreams running free
 My Love - Dear Ocean - I'm home by the sea
Oh my first Love - You watch over me


2 verse
When I'm In stillness, you whisper to me
I sense tides are running, moves endlessly
I go see the ocean, to clear up my mind
Losing my sorrows, my spirit to find

Chorus
quiet repeat 1 verse
In quiet high summers, and sunshine so bright
Through winter storms biting, with power and might
From morning to nighttime, tricks with the light
Shapes dancing out there, like dreams in the night
