WRITER SINGER MUSICIAN

The Unfolding

separator

I started writing songs when I was thirteen-years-old. I eventually performed/ made recordings/albums with bands, still searching and moving toward the voice I was trying to find in the lyrics.

My early writings were often described as 'vague' and 'not relatable', which left me searching for a more universal sound. During the writing and recording of my 2014 album ('First Event'), I quit rhyming and started saying what I really I wanted to say. I wanted my lyrics to help me disassociate myself from beliefs; paradigms and whatever concept of identity I had sold myself during my formative years. I am now more interested than ever in following my inspiration and impulse. I want to be led by an unconditional good feeling.

I have become a product of our times—I am fully engrossed in the world of computers and recording gear. While still leaning towards a "band sound", by going solo, I can take any direction I want without managing outward expectations.

As for a sound influence......well I think Roxette is pretty freakin awesome, but they just have a special place in my heart. Most of the time I lean towards a melodic seventies hard rock. Now and again I crave some pop like Selena Gomez or Lindsay Lohan......

At this point in my life, I would like to see where my songs will go using all the tools available to me. I have created an insular world of creation, where I have the kind of control I have longed for. It is a relationship with myself that is loving; all accepting and all consuming. I want to ride this for a while, until I am pulled in another direction.

Stay inspired,

Kjetil.

I just wanted to write and record and play instruments following my heart's desires, no preconceived ideas about what I thought it should be. Just making music for my own listening.

Blue Ocean

Blue Ocean
Well your gonna take care of your body
Not for anything but to maintain
The carrier of your soul
You are beautiful
And have come to the blue ocean to grow
You'll realize your wealth and abundance
Blue Ocean
But what then
Blue Ocean
Choose to grow again

Some feel the future
Is uncertain
Debt, fret and unkindness
Leave all these upstream thoughts
Get to the bright side of free enterprise
Held together by
All of your connections
Blue ocean

You have to love yourself
And every event you move yourself through
You chose this night to face
Makin the most outta you!!!!

Now you know gotta rebuild
And nurture your beliefs
Gather up all you can believe in
Do your best to soak in your being
A love you'll find

Blue Ocean
Blue Ocean(repeat)

I need you to let go

We came together with the deepest commitment
The bondage was strong, the bondage was divine,
We both lined up to drive the same road,
there was no way to know it was gonna come to this

This freedom I seek is simply to see whats ahead
without you, and I know it pains you
but don't kill me, don't kill you
this blackmail feeling is not healing
anything

I need you to let go,
Start seeing the sun
Fall in love with change
And the spring that lies ahead

I gave you the center stage
Then I took charge and shined the light
on what really fit my life
Don't hold it against me

This freedom I seek is simply to see whats ahead
without you, and I know it pains you
but don't kill me, don't kill you
this blackmail feeling is not healing
anything

I need you to let go,
Start seeing the sun
Fall in love with change
And the spring that lies ahead

I need you to let go
Tell yourself that this is good
Fall in love with a new meaning
And the spring that lies ahead

Hold a good memory
Treat someone better
Nothing is lost, all is gained
when you finally come to where the sun shines again

But don't kill me, don't kill you
this blackmail feeling is not healing
anything

I need you to let go,

I really love you

Biting his fingernails he sat listening to the forman,
You've done good work, your boats got more sails,
And I want you to put in a couple more weeks.
And jack got up, out the office with his coffee cup…
And mumbled….I just wanna be home with my baby.

I can't fall in love with this or the things I do
But baby I really love you.

Once I was a ghost

Once I was a ghost
I had no feet at all
I knew I wasn;t to be seen
So I just moved quietly along

Payin for past misbehavin
Didn't want to shame anyone anymore
My apologies were wasted
I gave up on a listening friend

But now I'm stronger
I've paid my time
I want to live, I want my fight
Maybe have someone sleep beside me at night

You're holdin me down
not lettin me stand on my feet at all
I am gonna walk on outta here
or are you gonna make me crawl?

And now I'm showin up
Not sure what I am gonna do
But you'll see me
leave footprints in front of you

Sophia

I found myself so complete
with the bosum of the trees
but this feeling was so, so long ago
now I long to make love again
and feel her limbs and leaves suck me in
I she seduced me by her roots, there's hope she can do it again

Home,Home,Home

I was lost out on orion
and a distant forest floor grew what I needed to know
I poured my longin love in a chord through the stars
cause darling then I knew where you was and where you are
It was forever squeezed into a bottle of now

Home, Home,Home

I had to gather up my strewn body
in a galaxy that held contempt for my emptiness
I acted on your call, the sweetest surrender
I just loved that fall
Now I beg you please bed my skin,
and let me kiss that sweet sap again

Sophia come get me.....

What are you selling me

There you go
Sellin me what you think you know,
With your tiny language
and your shiny enlightment
selling bricks of thought to
build prison walls

A thousand religions shootin arrows at your name
You be careful what is being sold to you today
wether from the governing, friends, family or foe
This universe never celebrates black and white..
only colours that you can never find enough names for

You watch a supernova's confidence in creating life in an explosion
Creating an illusion that it's direction one can define,
Those things we should leave up to the divine.
So what you distill, can make you ill
Those beliefs that have held you back from action and embrace
That suffocation
That separation
That sad investment in your ego
We are all in the same boat don't you know

Left brain , right brain
is that the best you can do
what about the derivative that
is and holds our circle of the thought
get lost, get bold
forget all you have been told

What is all this

What is all this

I am spinning my wheels
The mystery still has no name
Why am I recognizing
Why am I feeling this plea
Disconnected from my gender and
All the dirt and the seed
I know I am dying
I know I am living
Yet this moment they speak of….blinds me
All the conclusions hurt
But I like a hug
I like a Kiss
And I like asking "What is all this!"
The food I eat tastes like a key to a program
That convinces me…..of a loss if I hold satiety
I won't let myself push a button or pull a trigger
On anyone or anything
Let go of it all
Because its not me
I simply don't know better,
So I'ill fall into you

What is all this
What is all this,
…..etc
