"Cast In Steel" (2015)




Cast In Steel lyrics - A-ha

Meet me at the turnaround
Stop your car and look around
There I will be waiting
Forget for once how everything

Fades
It fades away

I’ll never get over what we said
It lingers in my head
I’ll always remember what we knew
One hundred percent to be true

To be right
To be real
Set in stone
And cast in steel

We made a pact
Eye to eye
Cross your heart
And hope to die

Can you see the end of things?
Can you see it happening?
Feel the ashes on the wind
Don’t you hate how everything

Falls
Just falls away

I’ll never get over what we said
It lingers in my head
I’ll always remember what we knew
One hundred percent to be true

To be right
To be real
Set in stone
And cast in steel

We made a pact
Eye to eye
Cross your heart
And hope to die

It lingers in my head
I’ll always remember what we knew
One hundred percent to be true

Set in stone
And cast in steel
To be right and
To be real
Set in stone
And cast in steel

Under The Makeup lyrics - A-ha

This is how it ends
Each on our own
Unless we pretend
Meanwhile our hearts turn to stone
Shaped by wind
Boulders slowly molded over time
Here within

I, I want to see you
Under the makeup
Let all the worry
Vanish away
I want to hold you
Like it’s the first time
Like you were still mine

If you wanted out
Didn’t I let you go
If you wanted in
Didn’t I make it so
It could be
Tenderness escapes so easily

I, I want to see you
Under the makeup
Let all the worry
Vanish away
I want to hold you
Like it’s the first time
Like you were still mine

I, I want to see you
Under the makeup
Let all the worry
Vanish away
I want to touch you
Like it’s the first time
Like you were still mine

I, I want to see you
Under the makeup...

The Wake lyrics - A-ha

Can't change the one you are
Can't change the one you love
Lower your guard
I've made a few mistakes
I'll tell you what it takes
Under the stars

Have you seen the other me at times?
Walking on an ever looser line

Baby this is a wake
You and I will not escape
As time goes by

The world's never been older
Your head on my shoulder
So close your eyes

Stung by normality
Wronged by your family
Conventions aside

Cannot change the one you love
From inside – or from above
Just hold him tight

Walking on an ever looser line
But love has let me over every time

Baby we're on a wake
You and I will not escape
Just close your eyes

The world's never been older
Your head on my shoulder
As time goes by

Baby this is a wake
None of us will escape
Who we are

The world's never been older
Your head on my shoulder
As time goes by

Forest Fire lyrics - A-ha

Goes around
Comes around
It doesn't really matter, yeah
Something wrong
A false alarm
Doesn't ring that true

Watch it flare up
Where do we begin

We are flames in the forest fire
Dancing from within
That's where we begin
We take you far and wide
And like always
Leave a silver lining scar

The stores in town
Are closing down
And everything's in ruin
Borderline
Just turn around
Out of every ditch, a path

Watch it flare up
Time to reign it in
So let's begin

We are flames in the forest fire
Rising from within
That's where we begin
And we fuel desire
And like always
Leave a silver lining scar

Objects In The Mirror lyrics - A-ha

You drive down your old street
Familiar smiles from those you meet
You’ve been around been everywhere
But objects in the rear view mirror
Are closer than they appear

Looking back is bittersweet
When the world was at your feet
Love would make your life complete
No one makes it on their own

You’ve come so far
In your comfortable car
Now objects in the rear view mirror
Seem closer than they are

Looking back is bittersweet
All the world was at your feet
Love could make your life complete
Yeah, love could make your life complete
Teach your heart to skip a beat
Lift your eyes above the street
This is where you once belonged

Come on now, its not so bad
Thinking back on the fund we had
We can stitch a life together
With the fibres of the past
But you cannot make a fleeting moment
Promise it will last

Looking back is bittersweet
Love the world was at your feet
Lift your eyes above the street
This is where you once belonged

Been everywhere
And now you’re here
And objects in the rear view mirror
Seem to disappear

Door Ajar lyrics - A-ha

Door Ajar
Door Ajar
Door Ajar

I hit my head on the pillow, hard
I heard a noise from the boulevard
And it made me go down
I left the door to my room ajar
Felt the rumble of the street-car
And it spiralled me down

If you could see me
Swallowed by darkness
What would it matter
Would it awaken
Feelings forsaken
Faded and scattered
Would you come running
If you could hear me
Some way or another
That’s what I’m thinking
Watching the stars reflect in the gutter
Door Ajar
Door Ajar

I hit my heard on the pillow, hard
I took the words that you said to heart
And it made me feel down
When I awoke it was dark outside
Just a flicker from a traffic light
And it signalled me down

If you could see me
Swallowed in darkness
What would it matter
Would it awaken
Feelings forsaken
Faded and scattered
Would you come running
If you could hear me
Some way or another
That’s what I’m thinking
Watching the stars reflect in the gutter
Door Ajar
Door Ajar
Door Ajar
Door Ajar
Door Ajar

Living At The End Of The World lyrics- A-ha

Sometimes it leaves me with fear
Never saw the horizon this near
Look to the left then to the right
I tuck you in and kiss you goodnight

See there is something I know
We are not whom we’re told
We are more than we’ll never know

And we’re living at the end of the world
Forget about all that you’ve heard
Living our dreams on the highway
It’s just another day
No matter what they say or you’ve heard
We’re living on top of the world
We’re living our dreams on the highway
No matter what they say
It’s just another day

I hear your heart beat in the night
You are like an echo of light
But in times when shallow runs deep
Your golden beauty goes cheap
Still there is something I know
Something yet to unfold
And we are more than we’ll never know

And we’re living at the end of the world
Forget about all that you’ve heard
Living our dreams on the highway
It’s just another day
No matter what they say or you’ve heard
We’ve made it to the top of the world
Building up speed on the highway
We’ve made it to the end
Living at the end of the world

Forget about all that you’ve heard
No matter what they say or you’ve heard
We’ve made it to the top of the world
Building up speed on the highway
We’ve made it to the end of the world

Mythomania lyrics - A-ha

You walked a mile on broken glass
Through glowing coals you were a path

The words on your tongue a mechanical song
Your face is lined with disappointment

Oh white matter mind, what have you got to say?
Reasons combine to force you away

You’re moving on
You solved the problem
And who can’t blame you
You’re safe in here
Inside your castle
In mythomania, mythomania

Cold crescent moon on a red cross
Its happening soon ti’s coming for us

Oh white matter mind, what is there left to say?
Reasons combined to force you away

No telephone
No television
No news that drain you
You’re safer here
More atmosphere
In mythomania, in mythomania, mythomania

You caught belief
Like some disease
No words can save you
Cuz you’re all along
You’re on your own
In mythomania

She's Humming A Tune lyrics - A-ha

She’s humming a tune
To keep herself from thinking
About all that she’s facing
But her mind is racing
Over and over again

And I don’t suppose she knows
Everything that’s bound to happen
How and where the story goes
And I don’t why I care
She’s up tight, not right
How could it matter to me

She’s humming a tune
To keep herself from straying
When everything’s swaying
And decisions are weighing
Ever so hard on her mind

And I don’t suppose she knows
Everything that’s bound to happen
How and where the story goes
And I don’t know if it just
I’m bummed out, no doubt
What does it matter to me

She’s up tight, not right
How could it matter to me

And I don’t suppose she knows

She’s up tight, not right
How could it matter to me

Shadow Endeavors lyrics - A-ha

Why breathe a word
When no one needs to know
Why say a thing
To another living soul

Let us pay no mind
To a world that seems unkind
For here is something to shelter
Now more than ever

Shadow endeavours
Our shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours

Why leave us open
And naked to the sun
Why draw their fire
That they’ll surely reign upon us

Let us pay no mind
To their words and bitter lines
For here’s something to shelter
And now more than ever

Shadow endeavours
These shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours
Shadow endeavours
More than ever
Shadow endeavours

Only ever happened to me once
It doesn’t come again
I think somebody left me here
Afraid and lonely
A long time ago

Only ever happened to me once
It doesn’t come again
I think somebody left me here
Afraid and lonely
A long time ago

Giving Up The Ghost - A-ha

Icy road, blinding dark
Rolling hills in the distance
Open wound, a painful scar
Love has left its burning trademark
Off the grid, out of bounds
Further down into shadow
Darkest day and whitest night
In harm's way
We're chasing rainbows

Giving up the ghost
Giving up the ghost
That's what hurts the most

You sever all my heads
You place them on your bed
Some part of your great scheme
To vow me into silence

Giving up the ghost
Giving up the ghost
That's what hurt the most

Frozen lake soon will flow
Frozen ground soon to follow
But hey - everything is in your head
And what you killed is never dead

Giving up the ghost
Giving up the ghost
On what you loved the most

On a coal-black sea, the sky's on fire
Failed attempts at a funeral pyre
Deep as dreams of dark desire
The flames are growing ever higher

You sever all my heads
You place them on your bed
Some part of your great scheme
To vow me into silence

Giving up the ghost
Giving up the ghost
That's what hurt the most

Goodbye Thompson lyrics - A-ha

Goodbye Thompson goodbye
I tape the sign to the door
Here we pinned all our dreams
Now the store is no more

What comes after what was
That was once strangely new
What awaits up ahead
For me and you?

Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye

Goodbye Thompson Goodbye
This space is for rent
See me head hanging low
All my energies spent

What comes after what was
That was once strangely new
What awaits up ahead
I wish I knew

Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye

What comes after what was
That was once strangely new
What awaits up ahead
For me and you

Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson

The End Of The Affair lyrics - A-ha

Even as the snow is falling
Dark December nights are calling
Memories of early warning signs
Like a whisper in the mind
I put my brave face on
Robbed of the love I owned

It’s the end of the affair
We are not who we once were

Hard to be open when all facts are in
Hard to write endings before we begin

It’s the end of the affair
And it seems we no longer care

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Well I was fond but now I’m harder
So here we are in somber silence
With no one else but us to blame

Hard to be honest when others pretend
Hard to begin when we already know the end

It’s the end of the affair
And it seems we no longer care

"Foot Of The Mountain" (2009)
