If birds could fly backwards: If birds could fly backwards and fish could walk. If bears could handle thread and needle and cats could bark. Then maybe I would be in an opposite reality, where you would with me. If I were the queen and you were the king, then we would have a kingdom without a reign. ‘Cause we’d believe in democracy, equality and authenticity. If you were mine and I were yours. If we even had this kingdom with no remorse. Then I’d be the martyr sacrificing me, ‘cause I don’t believe in your jealousy. So if birds could fly backwards and fish could walk. If bears could handle thread and needle and cats could bark. Then maybe I would be in an opposite reality, where I wouldn’t be me. / Julie Malmstrøm på sang + guitar / Lasse Jørgensen på elektronisk kontrabas / Morten Saauguaard på guitalele
Breakfast: I love it when it's warm and sunny and when it's pouring down. I love it when it's spring at last and when all the leaves are brown. I love it when it's quiet and when it's roaring thunder - I love all types of weather. I love it when it's minor chords or when it is in major. I love it when it's rock or pop or it's got a jazzy flavor. I love it when it's fast ectric or slow relaxing tunes - I love all types of music. I love it when his hair is blond or when it's black and curly. I love it when he's got some style or when he's a little nerdy. I love it when he's shy or when he's strong and confident - I love all types of guys. But I only love, yes I only love - I only love one type of breakfast.
Cold and Worn: It's not a coincidense that I found you in the trash - she was discontent. So I think it is quite OK that I take you home with me today. Did you ever feel like you were meant to be with somebody like me? Then I promise you I'll recipocate. I found you in the dark - all cold and worn. I thought that you were lost - all cold and worn. But all I saw was your potential - full of life and warmth. So how about we go make each other happy? I won't expect too much from you - I know you need to heal. But still I'd appreciate if you told me if you feel the way I feel. Or perhaps you never thought of me that way, and that's quite OK. But just wait four days to tell me that. I found you... I wanna be with you. Want to find out if you feel the way I do. I wanna hold on to you but don't want to. Be the one who holds you down. Would you be willing to be in my building? Hopefully you feel this way. I never wanna be the one who decides to break your heart again, no. I found you...
Break Free: Have you ever felt like something simply wasn't right? That you were there for them and helping but neglecting yourself?And perhaps you feel like you owe it to them. Even though you know your dreams are left on a shelf? Then break free, don’t lose yourself. Break free, don’t lose yourself. I never thought I’d be reflecting on whether what I do is right or wrong. ‘Cause good intentions and reliance was what would bring me home. But instead I’m feeling trapped and bound by you holding on. So from now on I’ll set boundaries and be strong. And be free, I’ll be myself. I’ll be free, I’ll be myself.
I have created songs since I remember I could talk. Little melodies... Shorts songs.. Then from age 13 I started writing songs down with verses and choruses - they were mostly in English. It's been my favorite way to feel happy and to share music ever since.
Finding a way through a struggle is sometimes easier through songwriting because you're forced to get feelings down on paper in a way where you're a better person in the last line than in the first line.
Jeg smiler til dig liv: Indtil den dag jeg ikke mere trækker vejret ud og ind. Der vil jeg gøre, hvad jeg kan, for at være den jeg virklig' er. Hver dag ser jeg på godt og ondt, hvordan livet kan ændre sig. En skønne dag er jeg væk. Jeg vil nyde hvert sekund. Jeg smiler til dig liv, hver gang du spiller mig et puds. Jeg takker dig hver dag, jeg tager et skridt fremad. En morgenstund. Et lys. Foruden håbet er jeg tabt. Jeg lever nu i dag mer' end nogensinde før. Jeg smiler til dig liv. Jeg takker dig, liv, for det her. Umenneskelig det er der nogen, der kan være på en dårlig dag. Men alt i alt så er man vel menneskelig alligevel. Man kan sagtens tro at man er noget, selvom man ik' lige passer ind. For alle er noget og alle 'ka lære, at være den, de gerne vil være. Det gælder om at tro på det bedste i alle folk. Jeg åbner mig for alt, så fordommene går væk. Jeg viser mig for dig, kan kun håbe du viser mig gensidig ærlighed, for ellers går jeg tabt. Jeg smiler til dig liv. Jeg takker dig, liv, for det her. Jeg smiler til dig, jeg smiler til dig jeg smiler til dig, liv. x3 Jeg takker dig, liv, for det her.
Do you?: Will somebody tell me hat is going on with me? I feel like I’m beating with a heart that doesn’t even belong to me. Could it be this crush I’ve had on you for as long as I remember? Every time I hear of you it’s like a wind blowing on a fire. I don’t think I’ll ever let go of the hope that you will want me too. And I will never judge your silence, until I’ve had that one day with you, where I can show you the entirety of me and we can see if we were meant to be together. I don’t if you feel the same as I - do you? I don’t if you’re like I fantasize - are you? I don’t if you have a girl by your side - do you? Will you ever want me in your life? I remember the first time that I ever talked to you. I smiled at you and I could tell that you wanted to talk to me too. And I remember how you looked at me with that smile in your eyes. I was sold and I was self aware that maybe I was too young. But I forgot all about it when you took my hand and danced with me. When you left my longing was unheard, 'cause you took my heart and not my number. So what was I to do? You’d left me fallen in love with you. I don’t if you feel the same as I - do you? I don’t if you’re like I fantasize - are you? I don’t if you have a girl by your side - do you? Will you ever want me in your life?
