I love you! Thanks for being you. No one can do that better than you!
Itâ€™s been a long journey making this album. Itâ€™s been fun, hysterical, wonderful, fulfilling, nerve-racking, painful, scary and tough at the same time. I wanted to make it sound like me. Like it comes directly from my heart and that whoever listens to it will understand who I am. Iâ€™m pretty sure I succeeded with that and that feels just great!
Itâ€™s an album filled with emotions. Thereâ€™s lots of happiness in it but also lots of frustration, anger and sadness. My mood is like a roller coaster and you can tell that by the songs. â€śPrincess Of Fallâ€ť for instance, is a very joyful and longing song with lots of energy, while songs like â€śLullabyâ€ť and â€śGive Me Your Attentionâ€ť are more relaxed and thoughtful. Then thereâ€™s the intimate song â€śI Want To Make Outâ€ť and the frustrated song â€śLost In Loveâ€ť. I tie it all up with a few crazy ones, like â€śAnother Wayâ€ť and â€śI Wonder Where You Areâ€ť and of course, some moral standards in â€śAll About Trustâ€ť and blooming warm love in â€śHey Hey Heyâ€ť and â€śIâ€™m Asking Quite Gentlyâ€ť.
So, what have we got? Joy, longing, energy, relaxed, thoughtful, intimate, frustrated, crazy, moral, warm, blooming, loveâ€¦ Will that make your day? I know it makes mine. Each one of them.
What do I want to tell you with these songs? Basically I want to tell you who I am and share with you my thoughts and feelings about the world and about my self. Want to get to know me? Listen to my album! Give me your attention! Itâ€™s all about trust and life isnâ€™t over till Iâ€™m done. I do it in another way, like the princess of fall. Hey, hey, hey, maybe Iâ€™m lost in love and just want to make out, so Iâ€™m asking quite gently because I wonder where you are. Itâ€™s like a lullaby. Are you with me?
â€śAll About Trustâ€ť is me trying to convince myself that love isnâ€™t just about casual relations and sex. Itâ€™s about trust, patience, personality andâ€¦ love. Itâ€™s about being able to be your self without disguise, and feel good about it. I wrote it in the kitchen. Itâ€™s my favourite on the album. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s number one. My friends disagree though.
â€śPrincess Of Fallâ€ť is a story about a man walking through the forest to get back to his princess. The Princess Of Fall. Heâ€™s been lost in the summer, the spring and the winter, but all he wants is the autumn and itâ€™s lovely princess. No, I really donâ€™t know but itâ€™s a nice story. The lyrics were in Swedish first but now I donâ€™t even remember the words.
â€śLost In Loveâ€ť is a song about not knowing whether to break it up or continue fighting. About being scared to make the wrong decision. Will I regret it? How will it feel? I want to eat the cookie and still have it. This is the oldest song on the album and the one I recorded first. I like the heaviness about it. Thatâ€™s really my style.
â€śI Want To Make Outâ€ť. Sometimes weâ€™re all in that mood, I think. You just want to grab that one special person and make out. To be close to someone and just let it all out. Go with the feelings, with the urge, the temptation. Take the chance! This was my favourite song for a long time but then I changed my mind. I still like it a lot though.
â€śIâ€™m Asking Quite Gentlyâ€ť is a sweet story about someone who falls in love with his best friend but doesnâ€™t dare to tell her. I cried rivers when I wrote this one. I guess Iâ€™m the sentimental type sometimes. Hope it gets to you too.
â€śGive Me Your Attentionâ€ť. The title really tells the story itself. Hey, look at me, here I am, I exist, I love you, I want you to be mine, canâ€™t you tell? This was one of the first songs I wrote for the album.
â€śI Never Wanted Anybody Elseâ€ť is about regretting breaking up. You could say itâ€™s a follow up to â€śLost In Loveâ€ť. It was the trickiest one to record but in the end I got it right.
â€śI Wonder Where You Areâ€ť is written together with my friend Peter BjĂ¶rklund. Itâ€™s a crazy story about unhappy love.
â€śLullabyâ€ť is about alcohol. Sometimes when itâ€™s been crazy days and everything is flying around you itâ€™s nice to sit down and have a beer or a drink. Written in my living room.
â€śAnother Wayâ€ť is about being different, doing things your own way and not being ashamed about it. Sometimes I am, but Iâ€™m working on it. Iâ€™ve recorded several versions with different endings to this song but this one turned out to be the best.
â€śLife Isnâ€™t Over Till Iâ€™m Doneâ€ť is the story about my loved one who very tragically decided to end life by own hands. Of course this changed my life totally, but the core meaning of the lyrics is that I wont let it bring me down anymore and Iâ€™m not going the same way myself. My life isnâ€™t over till Iâ€™m done. My dear friend Anna Drangel helped me out on this one. Her voice is lovely and it gives the song an extra depth. Thank you!
Enjoy my album, I do!
