about

Onwards is truly a heavy hitter full of reverberated guitars, dreamy soundscapes and catchy melodies that'll surely have you humming in the shower!
The album was recorded during one year while I was living in Sweden, Netherlands and France and all of the places gave the songs a special touch. Themes range from broken promises, independence to getting lost in endless spring nights, that sounds a bit typical-dull indie, right? Well, this one is different. Promise.

Track Name: Anchor
Tossed in the ocean
Let´s anchor to the blooming heart.
And all the way down,
from high up above.
You told me to always keep my head up high.

Tossed in the open
Let´s anchor to the howling winds.
And all the way,
right through it.
Let´s tear down the walls
that keep us apart.

And the weight of my worries
is bringing you down.
But i don´t know how
to let it go, to let it go.
And I can see it in the eyes of yours.
That you really don´t wanna know
how I´m staying afloat.
I´m the ghost on the ocean floor.

Tossed in the river
let go of the glooming eyes.
And all the way
right through it,
I was the fuel to the fire

Tossed in the storm again
Let´s anchor to your falling bones.
And in the thick of it
that I imagine thin,
I´m the fuel to the fire

And all around me
the trees are falling
one by one.
There´s nothing solid,
always something that leaves the ground.
I made so many stupid mistakes
I´ll never repeat them again.
But you are one of them,
I always come back to.

(And now it´s aching in my bones all night)
Let´s fall out of love
let´s fall out of love
I better fall out of love
Track Name: Paper Bones
What´s left of my bones
is aching underneath.
Silent whispers
in a heart alone,
far out, and out of control.
What´s left of my bones
is swirling and crashing in the dark.
And in the first of light.
I never came back.

You carried me all this way
heavy as stones
and you with your paperweight.
I think I love you, oh I think I do.
You danced with me all this way
into the shadows
and then into brighter days.
I think I love you, Oh I think I do

What´s left of it all
is hovering above.
Blooming whispers
in a heart at ease
I don´t want to keep you this time.
What´s left of it all,
is falling with the seasons.
Like rivers,
everything runs dry
Track Name: Resilience
You never remembered
to keep it close to you.
It was never that honest
never how It was supposed to be.
High up above, above the trees I fly

I´m waiting oh waiting, for a new day to come.



You never remembered
to let the colors in.
It was always the darkness
showing how it all would be

Oh high up above, above the trees I fly
I am waiting I am waiting for a new day to come
 

Oh we move so slowly in the night

thinking everything will be alright for once.
And the sun is keeping me within reach of it all

thinking everything will be alright for once.



You never remembered
what was left of me.
It was never that easy, no,

never how I wanted it to be.
And inside my shell, it´s warm and bright
but it took ages, oh ages for a new day to come
.

Oh we move so slowly in the night.
Thinking everything will be alright for once.
And the sun is keeping me within reach of it all
thinking everything will be alright for once.



(we´re moving slowly in the night)
Track Name: Onwards
The moment when I fall through
your wind can never catch me then.
Or when I´m digging at the hollow ends
wonder where my mind has been.

The fog is burning off,
as slowly as it gets
Let it disappear, i´m right there with you.
There will always be something,
there will always be you.

But I will never have you
the way that you will have me.

Oh the moment when I run through
the words can never reach me then.
Or when i´m jumping at the hollow ends, again.
Wonder where the love,
wonder where the love has been.

Your smile is wearing off
as heavy as it gets.
Let it disappear,
i´m right there with you.
There will always be something
something in the way for me.

But I will never have you, lingered
the way that you will have me, always
You know I´ll keep you in here, glowing
the way that you will have me

You know I wonder,
where the love has been.
But I will never have you
the way that you will have me.
Track Name: All You Need
Every day is the same
You´re hiding in the ocean so silently.
I wish that you could see
everything that you could have
But I know you somehow
you´re just waiting for the right wave to come.
But you should know
It´s time to spread your wings for once

All you need
is just a little bit more life in you life, man.
I wanna see you glow, burn so bright.
And someday you will get there
It will just take you some time, man.
All you need is shimmering lights
at the bottom of the ocean.

Every day is the same
You´re hoping that the best is yet to come
You wish that you could have it all for once
And I know you somehow
You´re just letting everything slip aside
but you should know
its time to spread your wings for once.

Light will find you
someday , in some way, somehow.
Track Name: Summer Skin
Keep all the colors in
let them breathe on your winter skin
In the eye of the storm, I saw the shore
we´ll be alright.

Keep all the walls apart.
For a change,
and a fresh new start.
Like the sparrows we are
we dream, we fly and we find love.

In the night there´s a fire
telling me it´s alright.
Burning brighter than the sun.
Oh it keeps me hoping,
It will set your heart on fire

Keep all the summer nights
all the glow and the useless fights.
In the eye of the storm, I saw the shore.
We´ll be alright

Come a little closer
because I am the spring sun.
I´ll keep you warm, I´ll give you shelter from the lions.
Track Name: Dreams
She said, she said
life will be golden at some point.
She fell in love, she fell in love
in the beauty of simplicity.
And she ran, and she ran
to the edge, where she began.
To hold on , to hold on to her own dreams.

This is the end of
everything we know.
So give me all you got now,
just for this last time.
This is the end where
everything begins again.
So give me all you got now,
just for this last time.

She said, she said
life will be different at some point
I fell in love, I fell in love
in the greatest dream I had.
Oh I knew, oh I knew
always hers to throw away.
Hold on, hold on to your own dreams.
Track Name: While We Were Sleeping
Instrumental.
Track Name: Lily Of The Valley
Fall in love with all that I am.
Slowly but surely
together we collide.

Through your bones,
and through your skin
I´ll find the gleam
that you keep within

Throw it off,
all the weight that you carry.
Days,
sometimes heavy,
like stones
together they collide.

Through my bones
and through my skin.
I´ll bring the magic
If you lose all within.

Because I love you.
Lily of the valley.
