Track Name: Northern Lights
Northern Lights
© Eric Daum 2011

We stopped along the bridge, to see the city lights
Infinite clouds hung low, filled the Swedish sky
Our eyes met and we kissed sheltered by the failing light
Faces flickered over your shoulder as the tunnelbana went by

Caught in the Northern lights of this shining city
Lost in the northern lights of your eyes they’re so pretty.

We walked hand in hand, through the gardens of Drottningholm
I took your photo and you took mine, balanced on a garden wall
On the boat past Norrmallarstrand you pointed out your childhood home
You squeezed my hand and kissed me then, I was ready for a fall

The short time we had, on that lovely day,
It was the only phrase I had, Min Kara, so I said it.
You taught me to say, “Jag alskar dej”
I couldn’t stand to see you sad, min kara, so I said it

You brought me to the Station, for our last good bye
Lost in the swirling crowd, I saw the sadness in your eyes
You taught me one little phase I never felt I had a choice
I said those words but you never heard the real meaning in my voice
Track Name: Come With Me
Come with Me
(c) Eric Daum 2011

Come with Me
To the Light House at the end of the street
Come with me
To the Dark House where we used to meet
Come with me
‘Tis a far far better thing That I do
Come with me
I was a far far better man When I had you

When was the last time that I held you
Do you remember the last time we kissed


Come with Me
We’ll recreate those ancient days
Come to Me
To my familiar arms you know you can’t stay away
Come with me
Do you remember the last thing you said
Come to me
Without you, I’d be better off dead

When was the last time that I held you
Do you remember the last time we kissed

When was the last time I held you
Do you remember the last time we kissed
So long ago…
Track Name: Stay Outta My Life
'Stay out of my Life!'
Carole Young 2011

Enough said
Sick of all your ignorant ways
Of having the 'phone
Slammed down on me
What's that all about?
I have Forgiven you
Since time began
You silly man!

Stay out of my Life
Stay out of my Life

No respect
Zero romance
Never a chance
You never knew
What you had
Well that's too bad
Stay out of my life
I don't wanna be your wife
I only want to be
Your friend

Stay out of my Life
Stay out of my Life

I only want to be your friend
I only want to be your friend
I only want to be your friend
Oh well........

Stay out of my Life
Stay out of my Life
Stay out of my Life
Stay out of my Life
Track Name: I've Been There
I’ve Been There
(c) Eric Daum 2012


Everybody has some words of free advice
Before you make that cut you better measure twice
Compare your options to what you have today
Just consider the price you’ll have to pay.

I’ve seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory
I’ve seen a dreadnaught flounder on a placid sea
I’ve spit out embers from a perfect love affair
I know I’ve been there

Hey, mian, I saw the way she looked at you
And if I caught her eye I’d go crazy too
Hell has no fury like a woman scorned
No sweeter sorrow than the love that’s mourned

I’ve seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory
I’ve seen a dreadnaught flounder on a gentle sea
I’ve spit out embers from a perfect love affair
I know I’ve been there
Track Name: You Never Went to Girlschool
Girlschool
Eric Daum 2012

You never learned flirt
And you don’t wear tight skirts
You don’t play those girlish games
You treat all the boys the same

You never went to Girl School
And you never learned what the bad girls do

Dancing in your little black dress
You’re so cute and I’m a mess
Run your fingers through my hair
Laugh at me like you don’t care

You never went to Girl School
And you never learned what the bad girls do

You’ve got a gift, and you don’t use it
You’ve got the goods and you don’t abuse it

You could use those feminine wiles
You could try a little feminine style

You don’t shake you hips
You don’t pout and purse your lips
You won’t play hard to get
You never want to kiss and pet

You never went to Girl School
And you never learned what the bad girls do
Track Name: I Want a Girl Like Brigitte Bardot
I want a girl like Brigette Bardot
Eric Daum 2012


I want a girl who’s just like Brigette Bardot
The Papparazzi would follow wherever we’d go
Invitation to the Castle we’d make the scene
Crazy for Love on every screen


Oh the way she moves
The Way she wiggles when she walks
Oh the way grooves
The way she giggles when she talks


I want a girl who’s just like Brigette Bardot
When God Created that Woman he threw out the mold
A Private Life,, a Concert of Intrigue
The Night Heaven Fell Come Dance with Me


Oh the way she moves
The Way she wiggles when she walks
Oh the way grooves
The way she giggles when she talks
Track Name: Lamb To The Slaughter (Dogstar)
Lamb to the Slaughter (Dogstar)
© Eric Daum 2012

If you cry
I’d be the one who comes for you
Perhaps I’ll Stay
To the end of the day

Like a Lamb to the Slaughter
Your horse led to water
You’ll see I can be
Anyone that you need

If you call
I’d be the one to answer you
If you wander
I can’t help but wait

Like a Lamb to the Slaughter
I’d follow your orders
And You’ll see I can say all the things
You want to hear

If you need me
I’d be the one who’s there for you
Satisfy all your whims
Won’t ask where you’ve been

Like a Lamb to the Slaughter
You're Time’s only daughter
You’ll see I can be
Anyone that you need

If you beckon,
I’d be the one to rush to you
Like the Dogstar,
The brightest star in the sky

Like a Moth to a burning flame
It’s driving me insane
And I'll be
Anyone that you need
Track Name: An Alien Concept
An Alien Concept
© Words by Carole Young and Eric Daum 2012

Falling in love again is an alien concept
A childhood language I’ve forgotten how to speak

There must be light ahead In the depths of this black hole
A distant star that I’ve forgotten how to reach

Darkness all around
The nighttime shadows rise
At times like these I could really use a friend
The Ghosts of memories
The time I spent with you
The everlasting story finally comes to an end

Being in love again is an alien concept
I’ve forgotten what to do or what to say

I wander through my days with no light to guide me
If I light a match will the sparks burst into flame?

Darkness all around
The nighttime shadows rise
At times like these I could really use a friend
The ghosts of memories
The times I spent with you
The everlasting story finally comes to an end
Track Name: Shadow Days (Rise Above)
Shadow Days
Carole Young And Eric Daum 2011

The Years roll by
There’s No need to ask why
It's just the passage of time
Natural ways
Natural ways

The past is gone
The future won't be long
Shadow days
Shadow days.

My friend, I am lonely too
Break those chains –the chains that bind you
Rise above
Feel the love

The past is gone
The future won't be long
Shadow days
Shadow days.
