about

Music and lyrics by Sverre Thorstensen.

This is the first album from the Norwegian band "Åre". The band consists of multi musician "Kong" Sverre Thorstensen and singer Kine Hjeldnes. Sverre has earlier released 4 albums under the name KongSverre, and Kine has released to lovely EP`s in her own name. They met as Sverre bought a synthesizer from Kine, and started almost immediately to work together. Quite different from the electronic soundscapes they both were familiar with, they ended up with a totally acoustic record.

Most of the songs are about water one way ore another. But hey, all your life is about water one way or another.

Recorded in Rommet mitt på Bjølsen and Kruttrøyk studios. Mixed at Roger Sunshine Studios.

Recording engineers: Anders Aarum and Sverre Thorstensen.

Mixing engineer: Sverre Thorstensen
Mastering engineer: Sverre Thorstensen

Track Name: Seventy per cent
Seventy percent of the surface
of the earth
Seventy percent of the surface
of the earth

Did you count my little pond
Did you count my favourite river

ref:
Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Seventy percent and the number
is three
Seventy percent and the number
is three

Did you count this beautiful lake
Did you count the water falling

ref:
Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

It`s falling from the sky
Makes me feel so high
Falling from the sky above
What I`m – what I`m made of
Track Name: Looks like snow
It looks like snow
daddy is that so
looks like snow to me

It looks like snow
daddy is that so
looks like snow to me

Keep asking `bout the making of snow
Keep asking `cause it`s making you grow
Keep asking `bout the making of snow
Sit back and wonder

It looks like rain
Daddy I`m glad you came
looks like rain to me

It looks like rain
Daddy I`m glad you came
looks like rain to me

Keep asking `bout the making of rain
Keep asking `bout the joy and the pain
Keep asking `bout the making of rain
Sit back and wonder
Track Name: The Creek
My house
far away from city noise
My house
far away from drinking girls and drunken boys
My house
far away from gigging bands
My house
far away from pretty couples with evening plans

You`ll have to cross the creek to get there
You`ll have to cross the creek to get there

Ref:
So
Rest your eyes on the water
water flowing by
Rest your eyes on the water
as a natural high

My house
far away from crowded stores
My house
far away from city bikes and shopping malls
My house
Far away from galleries
My house
Far away from boats to take you overseas

You`ll have to cross the creek to get there
You`ll have to cross the creek to get there

Ref:
So
Rest your eyes on the water
water flowing by
Rest your eyes on the water
as a natural high
Track Name: The same song
Did you see the bird
haya haya
Did you hear him sing

The same song
The same song

Oh
Does it ever change
The same song

Did you see the boy
haya haya
Did you hear him sing

The same song
The same song

Oh
Does it ever change
The same song
Track Name: Hope
All the powers we posess
Make us proud and we forget
That we caused this awful mess
Someday someone will regret

There are many ways to say
That our future will be bright
Listen to us sing and play
Surely you will get it right

ref:
Give the children hope for the future
Hope for the future
Give the children hope for the future
Hope for the future

Put a smile upon your face
Kids will always love to do
certainly in meny ways
more or less the same as you

Give them art and poetry
teach them to shut out the noise
music and philosophy
girls to women, men from boys

ref.
All he feathers of the birds
they would form a giant plane
that would take us up to where
clouds are turning into rain

Flowers by my garden shed
bringin colour to my days
some are yellow, some are red
all reflecting in your face
Track Name: Boat
I`d like to row your boat she said
please let me row your boat
I`d love to row your boat she said
please let me row your boat

Hand me the oars
such a lovely morning
Water so still
sun about to rise

Give me the oars
such a lovely feeling
You know the drill
when something in me dies

ref:
so let`s go somewhere
honey let`s go nowhere
let`s see what happens on our way there
When it`s you and me
on the open sea
Let`s see what happens
what it can be

I`d like to sail your boat she said
please let me sail your boat
I`d love to sail your boat she said
please let me sail your boat

Hand me the rudder
such a lovely evening
That southern breeze
will treat us so kind

Give me the rudder
such a lovely feeling
we`ll go with ease
and leave all this behind

ref:
so let`s go somewhere
honey let`s go nowhere
let`s see what happens on our way there
When it`s you and me
on the open sea
Let`s see what happens
what it can be
Track Name: I agree with you
I agree with you
I agree with you
We don`t care about the music
they are listening to

I agree with you
You agree with me
We don`t care about the movie
they`ve all gone to see

So we would never argue
never put up a fight
sitting by the river

Watching the day turn to night
never wrong but always right
as long as we are sitting here
the others drive around but we don`t care
oooh ooooh
Track Name: The wild animals
Here is my piano
Here`s my cosy bed
Paintings on the wall and
a yellow garden shed

When you hear me playing
songs of black and white
I know someone's out there in the night

When you come to see me
I'll be glad youŕe here
I'll have the piano
you can have a beer

We know someone's out there
but we don't make a fuzz
and they don't really care about us

The Wild Animals
The wolf and the deer
The Wild animals
sleep under open air

They are never sleeping
Not like you and me
Always looking out for
things they cannot see

Here is my piano
Here's my cosy bed
And a pile of books that I have never read

The Wild Animals
The wolf and the deer
The Wild animals
sleep under open air

The Wild Animals
The birds and the bear
The Wild animals
sleep under open air
