about

Soaring and life-affirming alternative folk pop from Swedish songstress. Deeply personal, groovy and hypnotic with pathos and humour in equal measure. An album about longing, loving and letting go.

Track Name: Edge of my mind
Edge of My Mind

(B; 4/4; 130bpm; chords noted are for piano)
(D#m; C#; B; C#; D#m)

As I come around
I’m scanning the ground
What will I find
It’s my turn now
Will I drown


(D#m with bass line- D#, C#, B, C#, D#, F#)

At the edge of my mind
I’ll know what I’ll find
So no one can bring me down



No slipping damn
Can’t blame no one
If I lose ground
The strength I’ll find
Will lock me down


At the edge of my mind
I’ll know what I’ll find
So no one can bring me down



Ride high on this wave
High on this wave
High on this wave
Riding high

Track Name: Hide
Hide

(E; 4/4; 130 BPM)
(piano: G#; F#; F; E then G#; F#; C#; E)

Feelings running high
You kicked around
And slapped me down
Now can we
Find some solid ground


(piano: G#; F#; F; E)

Hide I hide away from you



I can’t bear to see
How I change before your eyes
Now can we
Stop and rewind


Hide I hide away from you



Up and down
And kicked around
I’m standing now on solid ground


Kicked around
No solid ground

No

Track Name: I like to swing
I Like to Swing

(Blues in E; open position; 4/4; 75bpm)

E/A/B7
I like to swing dinge-ding-dinge-ding
I like them young even a little dumb
I like them rude full of tattoos
I like some size oh baby that’s real nice
You can even go twice

I like to swing dinge-ding-dinge-ding
I’d like to persuade you to come my way
I like it tight yeah baby all night
I like some size oh baby that’s real nice
You can even go twice



B/A/E
I’m over-spilling
For you I’d be killing
This is so fulfilling

Track Name: Raindrops
Raindrops

(C; open position; 6/8; 110 BPM)

(Asus/e; Asus/d)
With fire in your eyes
You said to me
What a surprise
You’ve gotta run free


(Gm11; F#m11; Asus)

Slow down
Watch the raindrops raindrops raindrops fall


(Cmaj7; Asus/e; Asus/d)

Why I’ve got to know why

(Cmaj7; Asus/a; Asus/e; Asus/d)

Why can’t we get along




Not even you my spark
Shines so bright
You can burn out the dark
Of every night

Cool down
Watch the raindrops raindrops raindrops fall


Why I gotta know why
Why can’t we get along

Track Name: If you knew
If you knew

(Capo 6th; D#; 4/4; 130 BPM; chord shapes below)

(A; Aadd9; Asus4; A)

What if I saw you standing there
I waived and said to you come over here

And if I waivered in my stare
Would you recoil and leave me there


(Am; Aadd9; A)

Would you go, would you go away



(Asus4 pull of 4th string)

If you knew I loved you, knew I loved you, knew I loved you so


What if I whispered in your ear
Those words of love you wanna hear

Would you stay, would you stay here

If you knew I loved you, knew I loved you, knew I loved you so

Track Name: Flaming heart
Flaming Heart

(E; capo 4th; 6/8; 110 BPM)

(guitar shapes: C; Am; Em; Esus)
(piano: E; C#; G# then E; F#; G#))

An empty room
With love left behind
A master move
I do it every time
This wanderlust begins to wear me down
More and more pieces left behind



(piano: C#m; bass line C#, B, A, F#, G#)

Flaming heart
Burn so bright again
Flaming heart
Burn so bright



Spinning out
Circling all alone
The longest road
Will surely take me home
Can I rest my head gently here instead
My weary thoughts land in your hand

C. 2012 Kristina Bill
Track Name: Kom
Kom

(Capo 6th; F#; 6/8; 130 BPM; chord shapes below)

(Intro: Am; C; Am)
Leave it now my love I understand


(C; Dm; Em; Am; Asus4)

Long as much as you dare
Long as much as you can


(C; Em; Am)

Come, here again
Come, come again


(Am; F; G; Am)

Kom min vän och se mig stå där


(C; Dm; Em; Am; Asus4)

Kom så nära du vill
Kom så nära du kan




C. 2012 Kristina Bill
Track Name: Truce
Truce

(D open position; 4/4; 80 BPM)

(D; A; Bm; G)
Can you hold me
While I think about the chances of a truce
When I told you
That my heart was strong and it would never bruise


(G; Em; A)

I had my back against the wall


(D; A; G; D)

I lied to save myself yeah I lied
I lied straight to your face
Oh it’s such a disgrace




For a moment
We belonged and thought that we could never bleed
But beyond it
Was an emptiness I tried hard not to feed


I had my back against the wall


I lied to save myself
I lied straight to your face
Oh it’s such a disgrace

C. 2012 Kristina Bill
Track Name: Lost in translation
Lost in Translation

(capo 4th; E; 4/4; 140 BPM; chord shapes below)

(Am; C; Esus4)


I’m not asking for a lot
I understand in this you’re lost

Why not come half way

You’re away again



I will turn the other cheek
I understand in this you’re weak

Why not come half way

You’re away again



I understand that you’re concerned
I understand what I have to learn

Why not come half way

You’re away again

Track Name: When a wonder takes me over
When a wonder takes me over

(C sharp minor; capo 4th; 6/8)
shapes: Am, Am7, F open 6th string, Am/D, Em then D, F open 6th string, Am)

When a wonder takes me over
I fall back in its sweet embrace
When a wonder takes me over
Time seems to loose it's pace

Take me over again

When a wonder takes me over
I sense my life's unending race
When a wonder takes me over
I find the strength to hold the space


Take me over again

When a wonder stops to wonder
I slip and fall and lose the grasp
Will this wonder take me over
I wonder I wonder

[break]


When a wonder takes me over
can I not just be amazed

Track Name: Kristallen den fina
Kristallen den Fina

(E; capo 4th; 4/4; 115bpm; chord shapes below)

(Asus; Am; F; Asus)
Kristallen den fina
Som solen månd skina
Som stjärnorna blänka i skyn

Jag känner en pojke
I dygden den fina
En pojke på denna här byn


(C; Em; Am; Asus)

Min vän min vän och älskogs blomma
Ack om vi kunde tillsammans komma
Och jag vore vännen din
Och du allra kärestan min
Du ädela ros och förgyllande skrin



Och om jag än fore
Till världens ände
Så längtar mitt hjärta till dig

Och om jag än fore
Till världens ände
Så längtar mitt hjärta till dig

Till dig min vän och älskogs blomma
Ack om vi kunde tillsammans komma
Och jag vore vännen din
Och du allra kärestan min
Du ädela ros och förgyllande skrin

(capo 3rd; G; 4/4; 120bpm; chord shapes below)

(E; G#m; C#; A; E)

All I was hoping for

Rise up
Rise up
Again
