Electrical Storm

The sea it swells like a sore head
And the night it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
And the day it is breaking

On rainy days we go swimming out
On rainy days swimming in the sound
On rainy days we go swimming out

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack
There must be some way back
For love and only love

Car alarm won't let ya back to sleep
You're kept awake, dreaming some else's dream
Coffee is cold, but it will get you through
Compromise, there's nothing new to you
Let's see colours that have never been seen
Let's go to places no one else has been

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack
There must be some way back
To love and only love

Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Baby don't cry

It's hot as hell, honey in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
Hope the rain will wash away our bad luck

Hehhhheh Heheyyy yeay

If the sky can crack, there must be some way back
For love and only love

Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry

The Hands That Built America

Oh my love, it's a long way we've come
From the freckled hills, to the steel and glass canyons
From the stony fields, to hanging steel from the sky
From digging in our pockets, for a reason not to say goodbye

These are the hands that built America
Ahhhhaaaa America

Last saw your face, in a watercolour sky
As sea birds argue, a long goodbye
I took your kiss, on the spray of the new land star
You gotta live with your dreams, don't make them so hard, oh oh

And these are the hands, that built America
Ahhhhaaaa America

Of all of the promises, is this one we could keep?
Of all of the dreams, is this one still out of reach

Halle, Ole

It's early fall, there's a cloud on the New York skyline
Innocence, dragged across a yellow line
These are the hands that built America
These are the hands that built America

Ahhhh America
Ahhhh America
