Eastereggs

Have your found the hidden eastereggs in the e-book? Here are the lyrics to the songs.

God bless that open chord

Gabriella Hansson

 

God bless that open chord

That happy violin

In times of distress 

May she never give in

 

God bless that light-blue sky

And the tree that whistles in the wind

In times of distress 

May she never give in

 

Let her see the colours in herself and all around

Let her hear the birds from far away and all other lovely sounds

Let her know that your just nearby

I know you’re good

Gabriella Hansson (written for the book Own your emotions by Frida Kristina Nilsson)

 

Come into the world

Feel free, sit yourself down

If adrenaline’s pumping, you’re too worried to speak

you’re still welcome

We are all skilful actors here

We can seem like we’re are always secure

Fooled myself many times, I have argued or smiled

but beneath I’m prepared to run out the door

 

And when you say it’s hard

I’ll say it’s hard

‘cuz I know that is true

and I know what kind of liars

That are trying to win over you

 

Lower your shield

take off the armor

No one is fighting you here

The war is inside of you

And I see your enemies are hard on you

They seem invincible

but, I am on your side

and I know you’re good

 

Come into the room

Feel free, stand or walk around

If adrenaline’s pumping, you’re too angry to speak

you’re still welcome

We’re all beaten heroes here

That is, people like you, and

We are lost and we’re found, we have wars of our own

And we help ourselves and each other to stand

 

And when you you say you can’t

We’ll say you can

‘cuz we know that is true

and we know what kind of liars

that trying to win over you

 

Lower your shield

take off the armor

No one is fighting you here

This is your own ground

The well of the self-hatred is pulling you

It seems invincible

But we’re all on your side 

and we know you’re good

 

Lower your shield

take off the armor

No one is fighting you here

This is your home ground

The well of the self-hatred is pulling you

It seems invincible

But we’re all on your side 

and we know you’re good

But we’re all on your side 

and we know you’re good

You are good!

But we’re all on your side here

and we know you’re good

 / Come into the world / Come out of your cell /This world is your home / Take up your space / Fill out your shoes / See the colours

Don't shoot me in my head

Gabriella Hansson

 

She was standing in a line of people

One by one of them fell down

She was wet all over her body

but for once she didn't mind

what she looked like

She lived in a civilized society

She'd been very sure of this 'til now

She had never doubted God is mighty

like she'd never doubted birds can fly

And she wanted to fly like them

but now she stood perfectly still

and now she was totally quiet

though desperately she wanted to say

 

Don't shoot me in my head

'cos my brain is too beautiful

Don't shoot me in my heart

'cos it's beating for somebody

Don't shoot me in my arms

'cos I use them for embracing

Don't shoot me in my legs

'cos I want to stand for what is true and right

Lay down your gun and see there is but one race of humanity

The race of you and me

Don't shoot me

 

He was walking from a pile of people

He was pleased, another job was done

Going back home to his family

But he stopped and turned around

He is a man of truth and honor

He's been very sure of this 'til now

He is looking at his pile of people

And he only wants to cry

The girl who wanted to fly lies there

She no longer wants anything

From now on she'll always be quiet

Bu he hears her voice in his head

 

Don't shoot me in my head...

I will not let this be prestige no more

Gabriella Hansson

 

I will not let this be prestige no more

I’m gonna do it just for fun

I’m so much more than what I’m striving for

and the races that I run

 

I’ve measured character in working hours

My perseverance gave me stars

I didn’t know then that my rightful flowers

stood withered in my heart

 

I have confused the roads and where they go

For everything here looks the same

God, who can open all the locks unknown

Throw the door up and shout my name

 

Remind me I’m sufficient

and more, I am amazing

remarkable and shining

and what is more: I’m living

The foldable bridge

Gabriella Hansson (chorus first written in Swedish by Peter Haack to his teenage daughter)

 

I've seen your eye-lids close

Some thousand times, I s'pose

and how you move in starlit sleep

your fingers and your toes

 

The sea proved to be deeper than I knew

The sky put on a finer sort of blue

when coming out in water and blood

the spark of life personified in you

 

To be, to break, to heal

You learn from what you feel 

To part is part of the deal

That's a shame, that's a shame

 

So I give you this foldable bridge

would you burn all the bridges behind you

You were still gonna know how to get back  home to me

Blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh

whatever devils might try to bind you

Oh, let someone be around to remind you:

You were born to be free!

 

You had no thoughts to hide

Your eyes were once so wide

Now you won't lift them from the ground

So how to reach your mind?

 

I can't help I keep lingering on that night

when everything refused to turn out right

My words were harsh, your answers cruel

We didn't reach each other, did we try?

 

To rest, to run, to whom

We learn from what we do

I won't come after you

If you go, if you go

 

But I give you this foldable bridge…

At the bottom of my longing

Gabriella Hansson

 

At the bottom of my longing I am small

At the bottom of your longing you are small

But we never choose to meet down here below

In the caverns with our bare knees on the stone

 

We meet up somewhere else

Somewhere we both look strong and fine

Somewhere we do not even stumble

How come it’s like that every time

But for this once I dare you

to leave your party mask at the door

Money-wise it won't cost more

though your life is on the line
