WRITER SINGER MUSICIAN

The Unfolding

separator

With a voice carrying the grit of 70's rock, Kjetil Landsgard's message is reminiscent of a 60's folk singer: let love be your guide. Whether he is collaborating with others or solo, he is no stranger to creating inspirational, original music. Kjetil can also be regarded as a 'wearer of all hats'; he plays/programs every instrument from his home studio, located on the beautiful West Coast of British Columbia.

Like the siren on the rock, Kjetil Landsgard beckons the listener closer; with the exception that his intentions are only good. Which is made clear in his 2016 album, aptly named "Second Soothing". Throughout the album, Kjetil--who is normally a quiet man--wails in battle cry fashion, as if to say "Wake now, because time is short."

Every song comes from a carefully crafted, insular world; where Kjetil is the archetypal mentor. In "The Ball You're Gonna Roll", he soothes his audience with the line "Build your city on days you feel like gold". "Bayview", we are reminded that life is a journey; enjoy the ride, free from judgement based on past experiences. "Arrows" tells us that from an outside perspective, it can look like we're not progressing, as life has the tendency to repeat.

Kjetil Landsgard is an artist dedicated to his profession. He is self-taught, self-motivated and driven to produce high-quailty music.

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

Arrows

You could desire change,
Chase it, and end up right where you were
But suddenly
Nothing feels the same
Even though it looks so…and you think it should be so.
Like riding through an old town
Same
Same
Same
Same
But the time you were gone changed you

I can't tell you
(No one, no one can tell you)
What this place
(No one, no one can tell you)
Is or isn't
(No one, no one can tell you)
I can't tell you what this place
(No one, no one can tell you)
Is or isn't
(No one, no one can tell you)
And if I tried I'd be wasting your time
(No one, no one can tell you)
Giving you a deduction
(No one, no one can tell you)
You best be keeping on loving.

That wind
You rode
Through all that bad bad weather
Now you…roll back in!
Nothing has to change
Cause you already have
Now everything can speak
To you
Like it never ever could before

I can't tell you
(No one, no one can tell you)
What this place
(No one, no one can tell you)
Is or isn't
(No one, no one can tell you)
I can't tell you what this place
(No one, no one can tell you)
Is or isn't
(No one, no one can tell you)
And if I tried I'd be wasting your time
(No one, no one can tell you)
Giving you a deduction
(No one, no one can tell you)
You best be keeping on loving

(No one, no one can tell you)
(No one, no one can tell you)
(No one, no one can tell you)
(No one, no one can tell you)

Well,
You got all of these arrows
Comin straight at ya
Comin straight at ya
Wrapped, rolled and dipped
In a thousand
Assumption
You can trust
A feeling

The Ball You're Gonna Roll

Right here
Right now
There is no obligation
Except to recognize you are
You can care
Yes you can
You can heed your goals
Pet your ambition but you will still be led back
To surrender, surrender, surrender

Be careful what ball you`re gonna roll
Build your city on the days you feel like gold
Be careful what ball you`re gonna roll
Build your city on the days you feel like gold

You will lose it all
Including the judgement that you hardly lived
You will put your hand in the river and be mesmerized
Just to feel flow`
Where you are
Where you been
Practice feeling good
Feeling good
Feeling good

Be careful what ball you`re gonna roll
Build your city on the days you feel like gold
Be careful what ball you`re gonna roll
Build your city on the days you feel like gold

I got tired of being
Crucifying myself with all of the expectations,
And I woke
And knew all of my troubles were of my own making

Be careful what ball you`re gonna roll
Build your city on the days you feel like gold
Be careful what ball you`re gonna roll
Build your city on the days you feel like gold

Before you run a thought, you`re gonna have to find a way to feel alright……
Before you run a thought, you`re gonna have to find a way to feel alright……
Before you run a thought, you`re gonna have to find a way to feel alright……
Before you run a thought, you`re gonna have to find
…a way to feel alright……

Light Bullets

All that you
Have gathered
That has built what you think you are…
Let go now
Far from here

There were light bullets
Sent a long
Time ago
Aiming for your change
Everyone is breaking ground
Part of clearing a way

Building in a building that hasn't been built yet
Building in a building that hasn't been built yet

Come get your light bullets

The specifics of your annoyances
Matter none, matter none
Your allowance of disturbance,
Says you care ….not how you feel
Change your thought
And think not
Of what is
Feel wonderful
About…what will be

Turn To The Sun

I like a good, good feeling
Nothin has to happen,
somethin named for your well being
Somethin allowed, not designed or planned,
just lettin the skin...feel the sun

A carve in the snow
A lean in your bend
What's just enough, just enough
That will give you what you need to move on

There is no distance here,
Only dark turned to the sun......

Growth.....mmmm...just feel it out
Feel that sweet smooth pressure
That is yours
own it
and like love ....that feelin make it right
let it's wwarmth
bathe you
bathe you
bathe you

I got tired of being
Crucifying myself with all of the expectations,
And I woke
And knew all of my troubles were of my own making

There is no distance here
Only dark turned to the sun

Ride
Ride
Ride

Ride it out
Ride it out
Ride it out

There is no distance here
Only dark turned to the sun

Deliciousness

Sometimes I can feel it
All
Is at my fingertips
So real
So now
That its been lived
And I don't need it in full color
Anymore….

Like all you ever wanted
Giving to you all at once
And all you could ever feel
Felt
And I come to know I don't want that
And I relax
And find what I need to find

I may not get it all,
But at least I'll know the taste of it all

And I swim another stroke
In the ocean
Feelin like
I could swim for days
Timing my breath with every wave
I cut through to you……to you.

Chase Warmth

What have you decided
About what can measure your self-worth
You are whole
Always was
Always is

Can you feel good
Right now
Right now
Feel good
Right now

I don't care what you done
What you done wrong
What you called your failure
What you call your endless fog
You're allowed to feel good
Real good
Feel good
Real good, real good
Hey

Let none of these conditions
Any of these beliefs
Decide how good you get to feel
Decide how good you get to feel

Chase warmth
Chase warmth
Chase warmth
Chase warmth

Before you blow it all over the wall…and leave a clean up
Before you put yourself to sleep…sleep…..heavy carry out
Before you take your wrists…and I know how good that would feel…
Draining out…. all the love you always wanted to give
Give
Give yourself permission to feel good
Real good
Despite it all
Despite everything

Chase warmth
Chase warmth
Chase warmth
Chase warmth

Let none of them
Tell you what you are
Tell you…how well you are doin
Cause you are doin, doin that good!

Chase warmth
Chase warmth
Chase warmth
Chase warmth

Let none of these
Conditions
Any of these beliefs
Decide how good you get to, get to feel
Decide how good you get to, get to feel

Chase warmth(etc)

What's your good feeling

I feel we are in a very special time in human expression
Trends are falling apart, beliefs are falling apart, the hold of religious thought..I feel…is falling apart
There is so much information, the rolling over of endless ideas of what happiness is and the paths to take in a life
But all that's tougher to sell to a soul
There is a wisdom in the air….something has changed…and we are all breathing it…maybe some of that purple solar dust finally made it here
Its like the days of measuring ourselves are numbered
The days of planning or choosing a destination in a human life are numbered
We want to feel good now
We want to choose our ride by inspiration and fall in love with the rain as much as the sun.

I think the first ride we go on to get some balance is doing what you need to do to get a good garden going
A place where the good thoughts grow
Those thoughts that find you saying "There are a lot of possibilities here, no matter what prison the world tells me I am in"
Those thoughts that find you saying…."What does feeling good….feel like to me?"
Secure ideas about ways to go about a human life are being broken down and we are stuck just recognizing our feelings for guidance
I would just like to do my part to buff that out a bit
I like this ride
It feels good
And I am going to do everything I can to stay inspired while I am here...
