It can’t wait another day

Dedicated to Greta Thunberg and all the children of the earth.

Come with me, the time is up
This insanity must stop
We will never go away
We have courage, we will stay
It’s our earth, it’s our home
Every pebble, every stone
Every square and every range
Stop the damage, things must change
We will never go away
It can’t wait another day

This is our home, so blue and green
With every forest, every stream
With every mountain’s top of snow
Children’s laughter where we go
We don’t have to go to Mars
Shine the sun, and shine the stars
The sky’s so blue, and ocean too
All we need are hearts so true
Make it work, repair the scars
We don’t have to go to Mars

It’s our home, and it’s for loan
We were never meant to own
The abuse has gone berserk
We must stop those crazy jerks
This our earth to us so dear
You must listen, you must hear
It’s our birthright, we must share
It’s our home, so very fair
Clean the water, clean the air
Stop the misuse everywhere

Stop pollution, save the bees
Plant a billion of more trees
Share resources, use the wind
Use the sun, we must begin
To acknowledge, it is true
We must fight the CO2
Join us, help our dying earth
Give the planet a new birth
For our home, so green and blue
Show your heart is brave and true

Come with me, the time is up
This insanity must stop
We will never go away
We have courage, we will stay
It’s our earth, it’s our home
Every pebble, every stone
Every square and every range
Stop the damage, things must change
We will never go away
It can’t wait another day

Happy Anniversary Jørgen

Do you remember the day, so very long ago, so long ago it was….

Do you remember that day and the lovely night
When we made our special vows
My dress so white as snow in the night
Your vest as blue as the sky in twilight
And in my hands…. there was heather, sage and rose

We were our finest show, when we made our special vows
With heather, sage and rose….

The wind it was heavy with thunder and storm
The rain fell from the sky
But suddenly the clouds went away
And the sun shone through to brighten the day
And the light at once … went from cold to warm

And my daddy, yes, he did shed a tear
As a ladybird touched his hand
And everyone smiled, there was music to hear
Nothing to worry, and nothing to fear
And the sandglass … was still so full of sand

Oh, what a beautiful day it was
So much love and so much joy
And late at night, when we tucked in our bed
And held each other tight, as we laid our heads
Future was bright … and life was like a toy

So many dreams we had back then, so much love we had to give,
enough to fill the world …  enough to make us live

But the days have passed and the sand has too,
And life it changes between laughter and fear
And love is something, that we must always woo
But our minds are so simple, it can end in tears
So the broken bowl … must be mended with glue

Now your hair is turning grey and white 
And I’m a woman so old
Though days have passed, and a thousand nights
Your heart’s still warm and your eyes still bright
And still you keep me … from the cold

We have had our little share of the sun
And we have fought both storms and rain
From the golden hours with joy and care
To the darkest times with bleak despair
Much we have lost … but also much we gained

And we have fought each other
and we have fought ourselves
And the sea has been rough and calm
But still you are here, my truest love
And still I reach for you at night … to keep me warm


We were our finest show, when we made our special vows

With heather, sage and rose….

So many dreams we had back then, so much love we had to give,
enough to fill the world, enough to make us live
