about

15 songs about love and war.

When I was on holiday in Normandy last year I was so impressed by all the battlefields, graveyards and invasion beaches that I started to think about making an album with the theme war. That’s when songs like “Names and numbers” and “The longest day” were written. But while writing and recording I found that war is never something that stands on it’s own. It’s always surrounded my human stories of courage, hope and love. So I decided to add those ingredients to the album and thought of the title “Love and war”. I always played in bands and I never worked all on my own. It was scary and awesome at the same time. I learned to work in my little studio and could work on one song or one songpart for days. I consider myself foremost a singer and songwriter, but I enjoyed playing all the other instruments too.

Track Name: Love and war
Is there anything else that matters

Is there anything else that hurts so much

Is there another thing so hard to explain

But we start it over and over again



Is there anything that still surprises us

Like the first leafes upon the trees

Like the birds and the flowers and the bees

They go over an over again



Can’t you see, Can’t you hear

No more fights no more fears

In love and war

Can’t you see, Can’t you hear

No more fights no more tears

In love and war



Is there a way to get out of this rollercoaster

Because enough is enough

Time is short and life is precious my love

For us to start over and over again



Wake me up in another dimension

With red no longer the colour of

Passion and hate and destruction and love

Can’t you see, Can’t you hear

No more fights no more fears

In love and war

Can’t you see, Can’t you hear

No more fights no more tears

In love and war
