First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar

Text och musik har alltid, sedan barnsben, varit viktigt för mig. Det har varit någonting som alltid funnits där, lika självklart som luft.
Jag letar ständigt efter nya "soundtracks". Musik som jag lägger till i efterhand när jag spelar upp scener ur mitt liv i huvudet. Ibland går det så långt att jag vaknar mitt i natten, klarvaken och redo att hitta låten till känslan jag känner precis då.

Systrarna Johanna och Klara Söderberg bildar folkpopduon First Aid Kit med musik som får mitt hjärta att slå våldsamt. De sjunger med röster som saknar tid och rum. Detta är kvällens soundtrack:




Now the pale morning sings of forgotten things
She plays a tune for those who wish to overlook
The fact that they've been blindly deceived
By those who preach and pray and teach
But she falls short and the night explodes in laughter

But don't you come here and say I didn't warn you
About the way your world could alter
And oh how you try to command it all still
Every single time it all shifts one way or the other

And I'm a goddamn coward, but then again so are you
And the lion's roar, the lion's roar
Has me evading and hollering for you
And I never really knew what to do

Well I guess sometimes I wish you were a little more predictable
That I could read you just like a book
For now I can only guess what's coming next
By examining your timid smile
And the ways of the old, old winds blowing you back 'round

And I'm a goddamn fool, but then again so are you
And the lion's roar, the lion's roar
Has me seeking out and searching for you
And I never really knew what to do

Sometimes I wish I could find my Rosemary Hill
I'd sit there and look at the deserted lakes and I'd sing
And every once in a while I'd sing a song for you
That would rise above the mountains and the stars and the sea
And if I wanted it to it would lead you back to me

And the lion's roar, the lion's roar
Is sometimes that I have heard before
A children's tale, the lonesome wail of a lion's roar
