I am grateful to both my talented bandmate Ilan Jenkins for contributing to this album and to the Gullkistan Center for Creativity in Laugarvatn, Iceland for giving me space and time to write new songs. Many of the songs were written and recorded at Gullkistan as well as sound clips I captured from the streams, waterfalls, wind and towns of the beautiful country of Iceland. www.gullkistan.is

Thank you also to Shayna Cohn for her creative vision of creating an installation photo-shoot for the album cover. shaynabethcohn.com

Thank you for listening! Takk!

Track Name: Straum
"Straum" by Ally Leedy

You are my safest kind of fear
Will I regret this in 20 years

And I can’t hold this in both hands
So I’ll let it float… to drier lands

You are my safest kind of fear
Will I regret this in 20 years

And I can’t hold this in both hands
So I’ll let it float… to drier lands

Its like the lighting on the water
On the water on the water
Will it trickle down… will it trickle down…..
Track Name: Citron
"Citron" by Ally Leedy

Ohhh Sunshine in the evening
The lemon light on my shoulder
I gotta find a little more before I… go home

Ohhh Sunshine in the evening
The lemon light on my shoulder
I gotta find a little more before I… go home

And were you there in my shadow standing near after-hours
I fear that this oh honey is all we know

But Sunshine in the evening
The lemon light on my shoulder
I gotta find a little more before I… go home

In the Lemon light
In this lemon light
Ohh All day all day and all night and all night ….
I don’t wanna go home
Let me stay here

In this lemon light
In the lemon light
Track Name: Bicoastal
"Bicoastal" Lyrics by Ally Leedy with
Guitar music written by Ilan Jenkins

Wandering faster but somehow we are further from the end
This bicoastal living is not not what you expect

and the water fills our heads
the water fills our heads
and the water fills our heads…..

And all the little pieces we hold in our hands
If we send them to sea
Will they drift to dry land

Dry land
Just follow me to
To Dry land
Just follow me to
Just follow me to
Dry land….
Track Name: Icy Land and Sea
"Icy land and Sea" by Ally Leedy

Times waits for no one other than you
Other than you
As I stand here in the moor
In fear of losing
Your hand....in mine... but there's still time

Over the bridge and through the forest I will run a little faster till I catch you catch you... catch you love....you caught me too love

Over the bridge and through the forest can you see me see me see me Through this black and blue this black and blue sky
Oh honey we still have time
Track Name: Thin Veils
"Thin Veils" by Ally Leedy

Turn out the lights
Everybody’s watching us darling
Turn out the lights
And the veil…. Is getting thin
The light’s been creeping in and so have their
Mischievous grins

And I tried to tell you I tried to tell you
So many times so many time so many times
And I tried to tell you I tried to tell you
Open your eyes open your eyes

I’m just a… glutton for punishment

Turn out the lights
Everybody’s watching us darling
Turn out the lights
And I used to find your hand inside of mine
The curves and lines
Until the light came creeping in and exposed what
Never could have been

I’m just a.… glutton for punishment

And I see you looking at me now with your eyes cast down cause
You don’t know what to say cause you're just the same way as me
…. Turn out the lights
Track Name: Brenna
"Brenna" by Ally Leedy
Who do you run to middle of the evening, ether tethers
burns so quickly… burns so lightly like a feather
takes you there to places you’ve never seen
places in your dreams….

Is it the game you play when you are feeling high and reeling picks you up and on a new side… new state of mind..
What do you need from me? What do you need from us….?

Cause they’re clustered up its two by two…when are you coming through…. Coming through for me?
Cause they’re clustered up its two by two…when are you coming through…. Coming through for me?

Hold me close before you leave…. Hold me… Hold me close before you leave… hold me

Cause they’re clustered up its two by two…when are you coming through…. Coming through for me?
Cause they’re clustered up its such a Cluster Fuck
…when are you coming through…. Coming through for me?

Hold me close before you leave…. Hold me close before you leave…..
Track Name: Vindur
"Vindur" by Ally Leedy

If I’m lost will you hold me for ransom
Like a totem or cross on the hillside in April….. or May
Wait for me another day …. Another… another day

And if If I am weak will you build me a shelter
To keep out the wind and the rain in the frigid winter
Wait for me another day…. Another… another day

When I am stronger and long for my freedom
Will you know I need time to climb up the hillside
Wait for me another day…. Another… another day
Till Spring comes our way

The Ever after.. ever waiting the never knowing if all is well… all is well…all is well… I’ll say all is well..
The Ever after.. ever waiting the never knowing if all is well… all is well… all is well…
I’ll say all is well

All is growing, all is changing… we’re never knowing if all is well…. All is well…. All is well… this is living…well… this is living
Track Name: Misfit Rulers
"Misfit Rulers" by Ally Leedy

Why do we always forget?
What we see what we saw and what we felt
When we were younger
When we were kinder

Seems like we all have gone mad
Words of wrath on our tongues
Like shards of glass
The blood runs sideways
Ohh I see its coming my way…

But I’m not going to sit down
Not going to shut my pretty little mouth…
I’m not going to sit down
And I won’t fold my hands now
Walk in line and sit quietly in the back…. Ohh ohh… no never

And its hard to love a piece of cardboard
When you're lying in your cold bed at night
But the plastic surrounds me and
Metal impounds me
And I just want some warmth that I can call mine
To feel tonite
Ohh the warmth of skin

I’m a woman, I’m a girl, if I’m a child oh I’ll rule this world
If I’m black, or I’m brown, poor or I wear a crown, if I am foreign if Iam close, If I am quiet if I am bold, if I love women or I love men if I live on my own or with kin
Oh We're going to rule this world

Ohh We’re going to rule this world with our love
Ohh We’re going to rule this world with our love
Track Name: Living Lava
"Living Lava" by Ally Leedy

And it comes in waves
Even when I try to keep it out
A little voice in the dark remains

But I… I got it under control
I take it in strides

And would you take me as I am
Cause that’s all know to be
A little rough with some loose ends
But I’m yours indefinitely
I’m yours indefinitely now…

And we spin around
Flash floods are coming down
A little demon of doubt remains

But I… I got it under control
Cause I take it in strides

Living Lava flowing down
This fiery feeling is all around
Living Lava flowing Down
This fiery feeling is all around

All… all….. all around
Track Name: St. Mary's Alice
"St. Mary's Alice" by Ally Leedy

And I won’t try to articulate this because it comes in waves
But you already know this don’t you…. Already.. already know me…

And I would have never sought this….
I would have never dreamed…
I’d find this place inside of you inside me that
I kept locked up and buried away
That I kept locked up and buried away

How do you erase a name that is written inside your soul?
How do you want a new face when his face is all you know?

And I won’t try to call you when I catch a flight back home
I’ll let you breathe in deep in your own space… and hope that you find it on your own

How do you erase a name that is written inside your soul?
How do you want a new face when his face is all you know?

But we’re up and we’re up down in-between here and now and back again.. back again… can’t go back again… anymore

How do you erase the pieces… that will never again be used …
But there is a love inside of you inside me that is longing to someday be new
oh its longing to someday be new
Track Name: No More Numbness (Fight Club)
"No More Numbness (Fight Club)" by Ally Leedy

What will make you sing like you did when you were younger
When the worries just floated away

What will make you make love like you did when you were younger
When the worries just floated away

Cause you hate yourself and you are scared of others
And you’re afraid of your wife when you are under the covers
And you don’t know why

And you are working hard working 9 to 5 and you are living strong
You are living with pride… not like those dirty slobs

And you don’t want to ever change you never want to rearrange
cause you’re you’re are so fucking scared oh of what you could be

So how long will it take…..until you break

Who ever told you, Who ever told you,
all those dirty lies that life isn’t a fight
Who ever told you, Who ever told you,
all those dirty lies that life isn’t a fight
One worth keeping you alive

Burn it all down, burn it all down, burn it to the ground….
Till no more numbness is found
