Track Name: Sailorman
SAILORMAN
(words and music by Janna Marit & Simon Lynge)

Did you ever want to be a sailorman?
Moonlight in your salty hand
And the wind will carry you away to far off lands
Of silky roads and gypsy bands

Well in your imagination everything is possible
You are the captain so just set sail

You wake into a dream and find you cannot breathe
The world is gone beneath your feet
‘cause you’re running to a future that you just can’t meet
the path is always incomplete

Well in your imagination everything is possible
You are the captain so just set sail

Look at the stars, can’t you see, there’s a magic castle
And over there, can’t you see, there’s a knight in armor
Fighting a big green dragon

Did you ever want to be a sailorman?
Moonlight in your salty hand
And the wind will carry you away to far off lands
Of silky roads and gypsy bands

Well in your imagination everything is possible
You are the captain so just set sail
In your imagination everything is possible
You are the captain so just set sail
Track Name: Circus Song
CIRCUS SONG
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Bring your ears I’ll sing for you
As we journey through sunlit dew
And then go below the stones
Searching for bones.

Rest your thoughts on the mantle
and drink a cup of wine
won’t you celebrate with me
the absence of time

Just touch the magic hat
That’s always sitting upon your head
It’s just been dreaming dreams
That you thought were dead

See the darkened door
You didn’t notice there before
Open and step through
Into the song
Track Name: Always June
ALWAYS JUNE
(words and music by Janna Marit)
Hope is a cloud in a world of rocks and I am strong
I carry on
I find it’s tough to be in love like in a tune
Where it’s always June
No room for blue
Just smile at me and I will always be happy to be with you
If every time you come to me you say how do you do?
I’ll blush in blue
But then the fun, oh the fun, it comes undone
Some days it rain to be with me, and you’re a storm
I’m tattered and worn
But then the sun will come and sing its tune and dry our eyes
Love will shine
Just in time
Just smile at me and I will always be happy to be with you
If every time you come to me you say how do you do?
I’ll blush in blue
But then the fun, oh the fun, it comes undone
Sing to me when we get the blues now baby
I’ll hold your hand and I will love you so
Sing to me when we get the blues now baby
I’ll hold your hand and I will love you so
Track Name: All Creatures Dance
ALL CREATURES DANCE
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Something’s up when all the birds
and creatures stirred without a word
And came around to you and me
-they said ‘it’s not our cup of tea, the way you’re livin’
can’t you see…

Then one little bird spoke his mind
‘I gotta say you’re not too kind
to those of us with feathers and fur
-You see I’d like to make a stir, if that’s what it takes
to find a cure..
and then they all sang,

High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
We all get wet

Then a family of honey bees
Buzzed and danced in a breeze
Said ‘Don’t forget you need us too
-‘cause we help grow lots of your food
can you see from our point of view…

that when you pollute the air, use pesticides
cut forests down, build far and wide
it makes it hard for us to just Be
-we all live together you see
him and her and them and you and me
and then they all sang…

High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
We all get wet

So won’t you take some time to look today
All creatures dance in different ways
They asked us to remember pleasethe
foxes, frogs, the mice, the honeybees
aand while you’re at it..
Go plant some trees
And then we all sang,

High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
Ooohhh
High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
We all get wet!
Track Name: Little Gods
LITTLE GODS
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Come now little babies won’t you sing a song with me
Come now little darlings won’t you step into this dream
of Love... and peace for all that be

Yesterday I found myself sitting on a cloud up in the sky
Looking down upon the earth so beautiful I just cried
and I wondered, why we fight.

The big man with the crooked frown he lost his laughter long ago
There’s not enough for you and he keeps holding on and won’t let go
and so it comes to be they will tell you that you..

Sink or swim it’s the game
I say it’s shame
Won’t you give me your hand
let me bring you to dry land
and if we let our love live, well something’s gonna
Give

You and I are little gods, we’ve got lightening on our tongues
Make a sound just say the word, speak of love and it will come
do do do do....
Track Name: Just Love Me
JUST LOVE ME
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Are you who you are, or just
who you used to be?
The sun will die one day
and I will welcome the company
Ooh, just love me

Are you who you are, or just
who you used to be?
You seek, you find what’s in your mind
Is what will come to be
Ooh, just love me

Hey there now, won’t you be a forest?
Won’t you be the sun, be some trees?
Hey there now, join up in the chorus
Hangin’ on a star, hangin’ on a breeze
Ooohh oooh

Are you who you are, or just
who you used to be?
The sun will die one day
and I will welcome the company
Ooh, just love me
Track Name: Not All Who Wander
NOT ALL WHO WANDER
(words and music by Janna Marit & Simon Lynge)

I went seeking in the mountains gold, love
Feeling weary of the world of boxes
So you see, not all who wander are lost

City streets I feel the heat of I should
I wear the mask that hides the face of freedom
So you see, not all who wander are lost

So I took a chance, forgot circumstance
Set my feet in soil, I began to dance..

Ideas bounding, swirling ‘round my head, oh
I lifted old rocks, and I saw a new view
So you see, So you see,
not all who wander are lost

So I took a chance, forgot circumstance
Set my feet in soil, I began to dance..
So I took a chance, forgot circumstance
Set my feet in soil, I began to dance, oh oh

To be free, so many rivers are crossed
So you see, not all who wander are lost
Track Name: Turn Blue
TURN BLUE
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Been holding on for a while, it’s all you do
Any more it seems your fingers will turn blue

Another week, one more dream, they’re falling like leaves
From that old oak tree that was your life once green

So those muddy waters are flowin’ in your riverbed
Can’t you see it’s all a funny game within your head
If you could only go away and be far from yourself

What’s in your eye, some old disguise? It’s falling away
Just let it hit the floor and come with me

It’s quiet here, no more fear to knock on your door
It’s broken down there is no You no more

So those muddy waters are flowin’ in your riverbed
Can’t you see it’s all a funny game within your head
If you could only go away and be far from yourself

Been holding on for a while, it’s all you do
Any more it seems your fingers will turn blue
Any more it seems your fingers will turn blue
Any more it seems your fingers will turn blue
Track Name: All Rivers
ALL RIVERS
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Ships should be moored the earth is a shakin’
Patterns of old soon will be breakin’
‘Cause nobody could cry for the trees a fallin’
Nobody could see that all rivers flow out to the..

See what you feel when everyone’s fakin’
I look around and my heart is breakin’
‘Cause nobody could cry for the trees a fallin’
Nobody could see that all rivers flow out to the sea

Meet me in dreams where shadows are creepin’
Don’t turn from the dark just see what you’re reapin’
‘Cause nobody could cry for the trees a fallin’
Nobody could see that all rivers are flowin’
‘Cause nobody could cry for the trees a fallin’
Nobody could see that all rivers flow out to the..

See what you know about everything changin’
Sometimes it’s good when old things are breakin’
Mmmm, do do do do….
Track Name: Devil's Door
DEVIL’S DOOR
(words and music by Janna Marit)

You and I are suckers for a lie
The King’s got no clothes, but you better not trust your eye
They’ll dress it up in fear, and paint it with dignity
Take you to the basement and tell you a story ‘bout the..

Glory of God
And just whose side he’s on
You can knock on the Devil’s door
If you say that we are wrong

The billboards tell you what your life could be if you would buy
Just a couple pieces of that Pie up in the Sky
The words they weave just to deceive, and no one seems to see
I’ll innocently follow you if you just talk to me about the..

Glory of God
And just whose side he’s on
You can knock on the Devil’s door
If you say that we are wrong

We’re right, they’re wrong, who could disagree?
No matter that they would say the same of us, it’s just their insanity

You and I we love to love a lie
The king’s got no clothes, but you better not trust your eye
Oh, you and I we love to love a lie
The king’s got no clothes, but you better not trust your eye
Oh, you and I we love to love a lie
The king’s got no clothes, but you better not trust your eye
Track Name: Human, Kind Of
HUMAN, KIND OF
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Human, did you forget that you are kind?
Can you break out of this spell, and clear your weary mind
Could you sing, sing, sing– could you unwind?

Rich man, did you forget that you’re a clown
Wearing rules upon your sleeve while you parade around town.
Could you laugh, laugh, laugh– could you fall down?

Do you want to be a slave, ‘til it puts you in the grave,
Living without a sound, ‘til you fall back in the ground, one more...

Poor man, did you forget that you’re a king?
Master of your self, what truth could your life bring
If you shine, shine, shine – if you take wing?

You and I, did we forget how to feel?
When we let the fools make war as if their story is real
Could love, love, love – be the new deal?

Do you want to be a slave, ‘til it puts you in the grave,
Living without a sound, ‘til you fall back in the ground, human...
kind of.. human, kind of – human, kind of – human, kind of....
Track Name: Moon Room
MOON ROOM
(words and music by Janna Marit)

I climbed the highest tree and I built my room
I can reach right out my window and touch the moon
