while we were fast asleep we became children of our own mistakes the sky fell and earth took up the fight rearranged day to night now the world is upside down. we wake up to a life where we walk on our fingertips all is flipped and poetry is gone, how come we don't interfere and repair when this world go wrong.

cornfield flower catch my eye yellow as the sun up in the high mind floating on a sky I'm in the house where I grew up childhood dreams homemade plays and lemonade this is my scene air is so clean I can't believe its been so long can't believe its been so long I can't believe it's been so long since I was in my hometown in the summer. no I can't believe its been so long since I was in my hometown in the summer. I can't believe. I can't believe it's been so long. rollerskating side by side let me reflect, no nothing has changed maybe I'm new I'll follow the railways home. I can't believe its been so long since I really felt at home in the summer. I can't believe its been so long. no, I can't believe its been so long since I was in my hometown in the summer.

all is vanishing and drifting by the hours, the days, you and I alright, I don't feel its alright. you and I. all is vanishing and drifting by the hours, you and I. all these days all these ways alright, you and I 'cause all is vanishing and all is drifting by all is drifting by, like you and I

all been said before it's all been lived and what is more we try to keep our lives galore and it kills me. every phrase has had a past and to the ending it will last that heavens kiss on sunshine shores will thrill me.

tall majestic trees will spread their leaves eternally in my memory - eternally. And color painted skies stay on my mind even at night. give me just a little drop of rain to ease the pain - release the chain don't let me fight this war in vain. give me just a little drop of rain this lonely feel's just always been a part of me don't frighten me you see its how you choose to build your memory give me just a little drop of rain give me just a little drop of rain give me just a little drop of rain to ease the pain -release the chain don't let me fight this war in vain

Ouaga Noma 02:18
wake up with a smile Ouaga breeze is blowing. sand will travel miles it's where the wise is spoken. noma noma Ouaga noma noma noma when I hear this melody it takes me deep into the memory of dancing free in red Ouaga dust that's where I wanna be. noma noma Ouaga noma noma noma Ouaga noma (noma noma) Ouaga noma (noma noma Ouaga noma) yasida Ouaga noma

Again 02:40
outside the night is secretly sneaking in eating up the day but lets the sound of good times begin. a steady groove and a melody. the soundtrack of life the time to breathe for me. 'cause here I go again all uptight and thinking: how will this end? time is drifting while I watch the seasons change. playing chess with life reaching out of my range 'cause here I go again all uptight and thinking: how will this end? how will this end?

Away We Move 02:53
constant change is what is on. is what is on. constant change is what is on. morning night and note to song. tried so hard but everything went wrong for every day we were together I got to live one out on my own the inner timeline must take its time as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move constant change is what is on I guess some things aren't meant to last when all we have is in the past. as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move constant change is what is on. what is on

about

After the release of her debut solo effort, Life Goes On, Astrid Engberg continues the presentation of her musical universe, rich and eclectic, with her second of a series of four, Poetry Is Gone.
We discovered her knowledge in Jazz, this time Astrid Engberg explore
a more eclectic and electronic avenue, embelished with Africain influences (music that touched her soul during travels in Burkina Faso) and dotted of Hip Hop vibes with the vocals collaborations of Mattic, and the production skills of Dirty Art Club, Mighty DR, Blanka.
A new travel which proves that Astrid Engberg’s horizon is not frozen and seems to be able to spread until infini, without loosing herself.
