Together On the Globe

Ingemar Olsson

A long time ago, before ha started to talk
Grand-dad and his dad went out for a walk
In the cold blue starlight, walking hand in hand
Gazing upwards, couldn’t understand
In simple adoration they fell down on their knees
And both of them were filled with inner peace

Together on the globe, a wonderful world
Together on the globe, a genuine pearl
A world of wonder, land beside the ocean
Poetry in motion
Together on the globe, a marvellous place
Together on the globe, just a marble in space
We’re born to love it, to explore it
Poetry in orbit, oh oh oh oh oh

This generation’s gotta learn how to live
We’ve got to find a way to share and to give
Feel the real connection uniting big and small
The hand that rocked the cradle for us all
We have a lot in common, creatures far and near
All have a right and a reason to be here

Together on the globe …

God Is Mother Too

Ingemar Olsson

Nobody loves you like your mother
God is mother too
Just like a loving mother cares about you
Ready to do all that she can to see her children through
Helping them find out where and when and how to

Mother’s love
goes a long long way
High as a mountain,
deeper than the ocean
Mother’s love
goes a long long way
Love is from God and God is mother too

Nobody loves you like your mother
God is mother too
Our Heavenly Father is not a human he-man
More like a loving mother
As she hears her children cry
Soothing away their pain as only she can

Mother’s love
goes a long long way
High as a mountain,
deeper than the ocean
Mother’s love
goes a long long way
Love is from God and God is mother too

Willing to sacrifice her life
if that’s what she has to do
Taking a cross if that would save her children
Mother’s love goes a long long way …

Higher Ground

Ingemar Olsson

It’s Saturday and it’s hard to tell
Whether it’s day or night
The band on the stage has a lot to sell
Johnny Rocker’s at the mike
Singing a song that he knows so well
And never will forget
A voice inside him
Crying louder yet

Higher ground
Try out your wings and let the up-draft take you
To higher ground
Trust in your dreams and know they won’t forsake you
Stronger than the wings of an eagle
Higher than the sky above
Right into the Land of Eden
Guided by the light of love
Higher ground
Your wings are ready, try them out and fly

From the depths of that dark café
Susie is looking out
The tears in her eyes, more than words can say
Show that she’s been knocked about
Look through the window and see her now
Her hope has nearly died
But deep inside her, a dream is still alive

Higher ground …

Sick of the show that he’s putting on
Johnny must take a break
Playing along ‘til the break of dawn
Is more than he can take
Though people around him, they all believe
He’s such a great success
What he longs for
Is something limitless

Higher ground …

Give It All You’ve Got

Ingemar Olsson

You don’t know everything
But surely something
Act upon the knowledge that you have
Anything at all is more than nothing
Give it all you’ve got

You can’t do everything
But surely something
Use the ability you have
Anything at all
Is more than nothing
Give it all you’ve got

Cards on the table
Give it all you’ve got
Do what you’re able to, it means a lot
Time to light the light and let it shine on
All night, all right

You may not brave a lot
But surely something
Act upon the courage that you have
Anything at all
Is more than nothing
Give it all you’ve got

Cards on the table …

You don’t love everyone
But surely someone
Act upon the love that you have
Anything at all
Is more than nothing
Give it all you’ve got

Ain’t That Good News

Ingemar Olsson

Have you ever asked yourself the reason why you’re living
y Have you ever felt so bad you’d almost want to give in
I can feel like that myself, but I’ve also come to see
That there’s indeed a reason to see it differently

Cause I heard about this man who walked out of his grave
And I began to realize he must have come to save
Pretty soon I found out that’s exactly what he said
And to make it very clear he rose from the dead
Ain’t that good news

I have seen a change in people who believe in him
And I have realized it can’t be just another whim
Furthermore the truth must be that Jesus is alive
And from this moment on you know that love will never die
Ain’t that good news

Now I spend my life together with a risen savior
There’ve been many changes in my mind and my behavior
There’s a kind of revolution going on within
And I know whose side I’m on and I know that we’ll win
Ain’t that good news

Ain’t that good news
There’s a reason for living
Ain’t that good news
Ain’t no reason to give in
Ain’t that good news
Overwhelming emotion
Ain’t that good news
Get your body in motion

Heaven Has Landed

Ingemar Olsson

Say one word of wonder to the world
It’s a mighty word, yet so tender
I never thought I’d ever get to see
See it near to me in it’s splendor

Heaven
Heaven has landed
And I can’t understand it
Wonder, it’s a mystery
Heaven has landed very close to me

Heaven
Heaven has landed
And I thought I was stranded
Wonder how it came to be
Heaven has landed very close to me

Present in the lives of ordinary people
In our daily affairs
Almighty love, power and glory
Embodied in people who care

Heaven
Heaven has landed
Like from Heaven a man did
Long ago in history
Heaven has landed very close to me

Say one word of wonder to me
Lending poetry to my fantasy
Reality that no one can explain
But it’s here today
In it’s own way

Heaven
Heaven has landed
And I can’t understand it
Wonder, it’s a mystery
Heaven has landed very close to me

Present in the lives of ordinary people …

Heaven
Heaven has landed
Like from Heaven a man did
Long ago in history
Heaven has landed, heaven has landed
Heaven has landed very close to me

We Are What We Are

Ingemar Olsson

You
May have once believed it
That your life would be like a fairy tale
There’s a charming prince somewhere
And I will be his bride
Even if he never finds you
I am by your side

Yeah, yeah, we are what we are
Uh, huh, we are what we are
All right now, we are what we are
Uh, huh, we are what we are

You
Had a great obsession
Yearning for a lady of pure delight
A less than holy angel
Dancing through the night
Vanished as a fantasy
With the morning light

Yeah, yeah, we are what we are …

You and me, we are what we are
Yes sir-ee, we are what we are
And it’s plain to see, we are what we are
Uh, huh, we are what we are

Now
Here we are together
And it ain’t the movies, no it’s for real
We know we’ll have to grow in it
As man and wife
Through the high and low of it
This is our life

Yeah, yeah, we are what we are …

Rock’n Roll Language

Ingemar Olsson

Rock’n Roll is my language
Rock’n Roll is my tongue
I’m gonna keep on singing
Staying forever young
When I’m 87
When I’m 94
And when I get to Heaven
I’ll sing it some more
And some more and some more
And some more

Rock’n Roll is my language
Say it again and again

Rock’n Roll is my language
Rock’n Roll is my way
I’m gonna keep on singing
No matter what you say
When I’m 87
Talking the same old way
And when I get to Heaven
I’ll sing it all day
And all day and all day
And all day

Up in the morning
Roll out of bed
Until the evening
I rock and roll ahead

Rock’n Roll is my language
How I communicate
This is my way of talking
I think it’s working great
When I’m 87
Singing the same refrain
And when I get to Heaven
I’ll sing it again
And again and again
And again

Rock’n’ Roll is my language
Say it again and again …

Offside

Ingemar Olsson

Who has got the right to set the limits?
Dominate the field and point things out?
What kind of reason,
Throughout the season,
Gives anyone the right to scream and shout

Offside – no I don’t think so
Offside
Offside
Offside – that’s the way to go

We don’t need a book of regulatiuons
Ten are good enough for you and me
No long epistle
No blowing whistle
Can tell you what to do and how to be

Offside
Offside – there’s jus one golden rule
Offside
Offside – that’s the way to go

When the Son of God walked upon this planet
There were many petty rules he broke
Quite a sensation
Throughout the nation
Yet everybody listened when he spoke

Offside
Offside – another point of view
Offside
Offside – that’s the way to go

You don’t want to stay in an arena
To play religiously upon a field
The world is waiting
So no debating
Out in real life’s the place to be

Offside
Offside
Offside
Offside – that’s the way to go

Never Say Die

Ingemar Olsson

Feeble aspirations turn into a dream
Contribute to a brook along the way
Thje little brook emerging, flows into a stream
Running towards an ocean far away
Standing on the shoreline
Our moment is at hand
Sense the river running through the land
We’ve got to see it, got to see it
Got to see it now
The little brook has grown
We are not alone
We’ve got to feel it, got to feel it
Got to feel it too
It flows in me and you, me and you

Never say die
There’s a world awaiting at your door
Never say die
Let the river run for evermore
Never say die
Let the mighty dream flow out through everyone
Never say die
Let the living river run

Water runs from mountains, from the very top
Shaping views the world has always known
And we must remember, each and every drop
Is strong enough to hollow out a stone
Love is like a river, deep and long and wide
Off to meet tomorrow’s rising tide
We’ve got to heed it, got to heed it
Got to heed the call
Many a drop will fall
For one and for all
We’ve got to be, we’ve got to be
We’ve got to be there now
Where we want to be, you and me

Never say die …

Don’t let fear overcome you
Don’t let it get in your way
Don’t let it dumbfound or numb you
Cause we are living today
Never say die
