Dearly Beloved

Ingemar Olsson

Dearly beloved, please come near to me
Maybe together we can solve a mystery
I’m all alone and it’s a great big universe
Somebody hear me, come and be near me

Dearly beloved, let me hold your hand
So many things are far too hard to understand
Life is a mystery no matter what we do
We’ve got to beare it, come let us share it

Please let me listen to the music in you
I hear an echo of myself when I do
We’ve got a living and a loving to pu rsue
We’ve got to beare it, come let us share it

Dearly beloved, this is my request:
Please let me see the things you cherish as the best
The faith that holds you up and keeps you on the way
How can I know it if you don’t show it

Please let me listen …

Dearly beloved, where will it end?
Please let me hear that good old story once again
Until I feel it from the bottom of my heart
So why deny it, come let us try it

Please let me listen …

You’re a Treasure

Ingemar Olsson

You’re a treasure
I’m happy that you’re my friends
I hope that this never ends
I’m beginning to see what life is for
More and more
Friendship is at the core
And I feel like a millionaire

You’re a treasure
I’m happy thast you are there
Ready to show you care
Friends are forever, if they’re true
Just like you
You’re gonna be there too
And I feel like a millionaire

When I’m losing track of where I’m going
Feeling inside out and upside down
When the stormy winds of life are blowing
Then it’s good to know that you’re around

You’re a treasure …

When I lose proportion and perspective
Trying to be the greatest and the best
Well chosen words of yours are so effective
You say you’re most impressed, but just in jest

You’re a treasure …

All My Heroes Have Died

Ingemar Olsson

All my heroes have died
But the song is still living
All my heroes have died
But the song is alive
When they shot John Lennon down
I thought I’d always wear a frown
But one who was crucified keeps me alive

All my heroes have died
But the song is still living
All my heroes have died
But the song is alive
When Mahatma Gandhi died
A world broke down and cried
But one who was crucified keeps me alive

Now I know that when the singing’s over
My hope begins to fade
Even so I know the song continues
Helping me to live and not be afraid

All my heroes have died
But the song is still living
All my heroes have died
But the song is alive
When they shot Martin Luther King
I thought I never more would sing
But one who was crucified keeps me alive

Now I know….

All my heroes have died
But the song is still living
All my heroes have died
But the song is alive
Yes, they hung him on a cross
And it seemed that all was lost
But though he was crucified he keeps me alive

Grover’s Corner, Illinois

Ingemar Olsson

If life were lived in one dimension
For man and woman, girl and boy
You would never need to raise a question
In Grover’s Corner, Illinois

But life has more than one direction
And we question everywhere we go
So it seems we need a new perception
Of what we really need to know

Life is but a gift
That is placed within our hand
What more do we need
To understand

I wish that I could go to Egypt
To Rio and to Singapore
But I guess I’ll have to be content with
A visit to the house next door

I dream about the world around me
And places that I could enjoy
Then I pinch my arm and it astounds me
That I’m back again in Illinois

Life is but a gift …

The start was very plain and simple
– A carpenter from Galilee
Divinity was in his essence
His greatness was simplicity

In places that are most neglected
There’s a spirit that you can’t destroy
It can happen where you least expect it
Like in Grover’s Corner, Illinois

Life is but a gift …

Let Your Light Shine in the Darkness

Ingemar Olsson

Let your light shine in the darkness
Let it shine toward where we go
Let your faith lead us and guide us
To a place we do not know
Let your light shine in the darkness
So we see the road that is right
On our way into the future
As we walk we need your light

Let it shine around, yes and let it spread
Even to the needs yet untold
Someone needs a bed or a piece of bread
Someone needs a hand to hold

Let your light shine in the darkness …

It’s a winding road that is long and dark
And it’s hard to walk in despair
What will lead us on is the little spark
Of a hope that you can share

Let your light shine in the darkness …

These Moccasins

Ingemar Olsson

Come and try them on – these moccasins I’m wearing
Put yourself in my place for a day
Try and understand the life that I am leading
Before you say the things you want to say

Come and try them on – my moccasins I’m wearing
Walk along the roads I have to walk
If you dare to leave the ways that are familiar
You’ll have a different outlook when you talk

When you met me and you heard me for the first time
Then you thought you knew just who I had to be
I had only sung the first two lines of music
When you said that you could write the rest for me

I don’t know how you have gotten your opinion
And believe the things about me that you do
But the only way to find the truth between us
Is for you to see like me and me like you

Come and try them on – these moccasins I’m wearing
Put yourself in my place for a day …

When you feel the rocky road that I must travel
With the struggles and pain that I must face
When our spirits start to hurt the way our feet do
We can see beyond the differences of race

You will know it if you only dare to listen
In the echo of your own voice that you hear
It’s a song that will continue to be written
Until the music and the harmony are clear

Come and try them on — these moccasins I’m wearing
Put yourself in my place for a day …
Come and try them on — these moccasins I’m wearing
Walk along the roads I have to walk …

Black and White

Ingemar Olsson

Life was going on just like before
I never really sensed it coming
Something like an inner tug of war
I kept pulling till my arma were numbing
Straining and a-pulling, trying to win
Times of thinking I would fall
Till I quit the fight that I was in
I could do noting at all

I saw it there in black and white
And I knew there was a wayfor me to go
I heard it and it sounded right
You are here and everywhere
I know it’s true,I believe in you
You’ll be with me

Sun was shining through, you took my hand
And we walked into a brand new morning
Shadows of the past gave way to light
I was ready now to face the dawning
Looking for an answer, finding it too
Trying not to lose my way
Even when the road is out of sight
I believe you’re gonna stay

I saw it there in black and white …

Black and white, just as plain as an open book
Black and white, so I gave it another look
Into day, out of night – now the time is right
Yes I know it’s true,I believe in you
You’ll be with me

I don’t really see the end of the track
I only know that you’ll be there
This will be the story, front to back
You’ll be there, ready to care

I saw it there in black and white …

Black and white …

I’d Rather Be a Baby

Ingemar Olsson

You look at your life only passing by
You work every day, but you don’t know why
Your visions and dreams are all dead and gone
Just trying to carry on

Well, if that’s the life that I’m leading
A grownup to the end
I’d rather be a baby
And try it all again

To get out of bed with an aching back
To live on the brink of a heart-attack
There’s money to make, but a price you pay
You lose yourself on the way
Well, if that’s ….

You envy the things that your neighbour has
The house and the car and the razzmatazz
You long for a grass of a greener kind
The kind you never find

Well, if that’s the life that I’m leading
A grownup to the end
I’d rather be a baby
And try it all again

If heaven is something your mind forbids
’Cause heaven is only for little kids
You’ll live all your life on a lonely isle
And then you’ll lie down and die

Well, if that’s the life that I’m leading
A grownup to the end
I’d rather be a baby
And try it all again
