Organic Cities – Digital Albumrelease

VOORKANT ORGANIC CITIESACHTERKANT ORGANIC CITIES

 

Na twee jaar hard werk is de digitale release van ‘Organic Cities’ een feit. Dit is iets om te vieren! In de loop van de afgelopen tijd is voor muziekprojecten veel heen en weer gereisd tussen Duitsland, Zwitserland en Nederland. Deze reizen inspireerden voor nieuwe teksten, nieuwe muziek. Vandaag, op 16 maart is het album voor het eerst online! Het werk is uitgebracht bij Bertus distributie. Het album telt 19 nummers, alle in het Engels. Ik ben zo blij en opgetogen dat het album in de lucht is en wil het graag met jullie delen. Dus, ga het luisteren! Het is te vinden op Spotify onder deze link: Organic Cities

Als lijn in het album is een samenhangend geheel gemaakt, in de instrumentatie is vooral gebruik gemaakt van instrumenten als gitaren, bas geplukt en gestreken, synthesizers, electronica uit een Volca Beats, vocalen en soundscapes. De thematiek van de teksten beweegt zich tussen de zoektocht naar geborgenheid, in een alom constant bewegende wereld en de impressies die je gevoelsmatig in het reizen opdoet, wat jou zelf beweegt, waar je je thuis voelt. Thema’s als liefde, je eigen weg vinden in het leven, zijn dingen die geregeld bezongen worden.


After two years of hard work the digital release of ‘ Organic Cities ‘ is a
fact. This is something to celebrate! Over the past time much has been
traveled back and forth for music projects between Germany, Switzerland and
the Netherlands. These trips inspired for new texts, new music. From the 16th
of March, the complete album is online! The work is released at Bertus
distribution. The album has 19 songs, all in English. I’m so happy and
delighted that the album is in the air and would like to share with you. So,
go listening! It is found on for example Spotify, see links under.

As a line in the album is a coherent whole, instrumentation mainly used are
instruments such as guitars, bass, synthesizers, electronica (Volca Beats),
double bass plucked and stringed, vocals and soundscapes. The theme of the
lyrics moves between the quest for security, in a constantly moving world
widely and the impressions that you acquire what you instinctively find in the
travelling itself , the search where you feel at home. Themes as love, finding
an own way in life, things are settled sung about.

Happy listening! Let’s Celebrate.

Lyrics ‘Organic Cities

  • Turn into a dream

Oh my love in the sky in the air
I’ll be here in the night when you cry
Your unique atmosphere makes me run
In this heavenly light I’ll get by
Troubles so far away makes me want to run
But in this moment of time life means so much more

Let’s get high in a plane, hold my hand
I’ll be here in the height, when you fly
Troubles so far away haven’t yet begun
But in this minute of time good luck’s at our door

Oh my love tell me why I’m so scared
Oh my love tell me how to prepare

Turn into a dream with me

  • City Sees Me

Take me out to see you
Take me out to hear you
Make me swear I belong to you

In the desert sun

Where I can see no more
In this lifelong run
Where nothing is sure no more
Love me so I can see you

Love me somehow I can feel you
Make me swear I’ll be strong for you
In the desert sun
Where I can feel no more
When has this life begun?

You take me somewhere I can see me

  • Dust and Stones

Dust and stones in your fireplace
Secret signs in a deep embrace
Saw you smile in you secret ways
Let it go into outer space
Lightning signs in your fireplace
Set it free, let it find a place

Dust and stones
Evening falls
Let it go
Leave it all
Saw you try in your secret ways
Let it go into outer space

Lightning signs in your fireplace
Set it free, let it find a place
Lightning signs in your tired face

Dust and stones

  • No Nearer

(Part of T.S.Elliot ‘Hollow Man’)

Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
In death’s dream kingdom
These do not appear:
There, the eyes are
Sunlight on a broken column
There, is a tree swinging
And voices are
In the wind’s singing
More distant and more solemn
Than a fading star.

Let me be no nearer
In death’s dream kingdom
Let me also wear
Such deliberate disguises
Rat’s coat, crow skin, crossed staves
In a field
Behaving as the wind behaves
No nearer—

Not that final meeting
In the twilight kingdom

  • For You

For you a new life to shine in the dark
For you a true fight, the brighter the spark
As love grew and slowly awakened my soul
It too became weaker, my heart even more

For you it saw feathers get old in the flight
to fall on the ground from far distant height
As love grew and slowly awakened my soul
It too became weaker, my heart even more

For you there’s a song, with words without pain
in small bits and pieces it saves the refrain

For you a new life to shine in the dark
For you a blue fight, the brighter the spark
As love grew and slowly awakened my life
It too became weaker, my heart even more

For you there’s a song, with words without pain
in small bits and pieces it saves the refrain
For you there’s a song, no words to complain
in small bits and pieces it saves the remains.

  • Keep it Right

We are the same in different ways
We know as much we care
we are familiar
I know your name in different ways
I know as much it’s clear but unfamiliar

We’ve been trying to keep it right

I’ve seen your face in a coloured dream
We’ve been alone too much in solitary
Your moving grace
a silent scream
We shouldn’t think so muck in solitary

You’ve been trying to keep it right

I know your name in different ways
I know as much it’s clear but unfamiliar
We are the same in different ways
We know as much we care
we are familiar
Your moving grace
a silent scream
We shouldn’t say so muck in solitary

I’ve seen your face in a colored dream
We’ve been alone too much in solitary

You’ve been trying to keep it right
You’ve been trying to hold me tight
You’ve been trying to keep it right

We are the same in different ways/ We’ve been trying to keep it right
I know your name, I know this face/We’ve been trying to keep it right
Your moving grace, a silent scream
Keep it right
Keep it right
Keep it right

  • You would want me to

I would do the same as you
I would do the same as you
I would say the same as you

Through thousand years of time
I’d love you like I do

I would feel the same as you
I would want the same as you
Through thousand years of time
I’d love you like I do

I would fail the same as you
I would doubt the same as you
Thousand years of time
I’d love you like I do

Through thousand years of time
I’d love you like I do

I would do the same as you
You would want me to
Through thousand years of time
I’d love you like I do

  • Organic Cities

Organic Cities
Part of it that is
invisible

Organic Cities
Part of it that is missing
you in it

  • Labyrinth

I’m looking for the road
It’s dark in here like a cave
It’s misty and it’s cold
It’s dark in here like a cave

I’m looking for a sign
The light in here makes you mine
I’m ready for your love
A moment in truth above

I’m looking for a way
To fit in here with things to say
I’m leaving the going away
To fit in here as place to stay

In a labyrinth’s way through life
Makes it harder to admit
I’m falling into a lighter space
Without a trace

I’m looking for a mark
Return in time and face the dark
I’m looking for your light
To fall into and hold you tight

In this labyrinth’s way through life
Makes it harder to admit
I’m falling into a lighter space
Without a trace

We love the road

No answer too soon

  • New Ways

Undo from chains that keep you in the past
Go seek the future for as long time lasts
Unlock the doors
Enter a new place

Keep close and meet your truest friend at last
You’ll see you wait for better times too fast
Unlock the door
Enter a new place
New ways

Store the light that’s hidden in your heart
Before it breaks through
Before all lovers have to part
Unlock the door
Enter a new place
New ways

  • Rising Above

Give me a love that stills the hunger
Before the crying steals the shame
There’s a proof of being stronger
Let us unite in being same
Give me a love for the weaker
To feel close isn’t to blame
So be moved by the other in a caring loving frame
Give me a love
Give me a love
Rising above

Give me a love that’s growing stronger
When a person’s causing pain
Give me a love that’s lasting longer
Like a spirit that needs no name
Give me a love
To feel close isn’t to blame
So be moved by the other in a caring loving frame
Give me a love

  • Drawn to See (based on play ‘Die Wildente/The Wild Duck’ – Ibsen)

It’s been a while since I’ve been going anywhere
It’s been a wile ago I met some friends out there
You put me through a loop thrown into the past
I’m drawn to sea by you

I’m reading all the books again you gave to me
and stayed inside the house a while to let things be
Your words a coming back to me from slow to fast
I’m drawn to see by you

Deep in the water, deep in the sea
Deep on the bottom you’ll find Hedwig

You wander safe inside my soul, inside my head
You’re living by my side or in my mind instead
Your image carried with me all the time to last
I’m drawn to see by you
I’m drawn to sea by you
I’m drawn to see by you

  • Floating

Lonely as a cloud
You’re floating
Live like you never lived before
You didn’t know this jacked nice and warm from outside
Dreaming in a dream, you’re dreaming
Live like you never lived before
True diamond
Sky diamond
Pale and true like outside
It hasn’t been too clear the rain turns into sunlight
my sweet cloud
My stormy weather
Lonely as a cloud
You’re floating
Live like you never lived before

  • Sudden  Rainfall

All the sudden rainfall
All the sudden words
All the sudden silence
All that isn’t heard

  • Go Round

A house is a place
A home is to be found
Who’s guiding the way of the earth we go round
The love that we lose
The love that we gain
Life’s part that we play like moon, sun and rain

I wish I was a tree
You could sit under me
And in the darkest days
The wind’s our poetry
We go round and round

A house is a space
A home where we’re bound
There’s so many answers on questions to find
With love as our ground
Nobody’s blind
Your home is to me like you’re a poem to me

And in the darkest days we will be light and free
We will walk all the way
The wind’s our poetry
We go round and round

A house is place
A home is to be found

  • Interval – instrumental
  • Back in Time

Saying hello
I dreamt about another name
I heard some people talking strange

Saying goodbye
I dreamt about us being the same
I heard some people calling me names
I think I’ll leave this place

But when I miss you
Can I get back into you arms
Back in time

Ticking the clock
Saying hello

  • All Asked For

All I ever asked for
was a moment of rest
Didn’t realize it was
hard to achieve

All I ever needed
was a little of love
Didn’t realize it was
hard to believe

Nobody knows
Nobody hears
Everyone’s whispering

Eyes like birds flying and searching
Hold on to the beauty of the night
Before it fades away

All I ever needed was a little of time
Didn’t realize it was hard to conceive

Nobody knows
Nobody hears
Everyone’s whispering
