Lyrics Small Town Star album

1. LOVE IS       (Words/Music: Anders Norman)

Love is
when you love someone
in exactly that same moment as you see her
Love is
when you find the one
searching all your life just for her qualities
Love is
When you realize
a fairytale in life with love and tenderness
Love is
when you fear she ́s gone
and see her smiling back at you against the wall


Refr:
I wanna hold you, not chain you
Want to have you, not own you
I want to Love you, not change you
Stay the same
Be near , but not choke you
Give love – without losing you
Be the closest pair- in this world


Love is
Two hearts unbroken
four letter words written in the moment
Love is
To see one and other
To hear each others wishes before they ́re spoken


Can you feel how much I ́m loving you

Who can say that love is blind
Cus when you look at me you know it´s true

You are always on my mind
Love is
When you miss someone
In exactly that same moment as you leave her

4.  Live your life  (Words/Music: Anders Norman)

Tell me how you ́re doing
Haven ́t seen you in a while
Tell me all about heaven

I sure miss you coming around
Our lifes have all been changing
We grew up and grew apart
One is now the president
Of a corporate in town
another just got married
The second time around
And I just found out myself
what life is really about

Live your life
Live your life 
Live your life with your heart


I can tell you all about children
And working 9 to 5
And I know that Jenny sometimes
thinks of you and smiles


Live your life
Live your life
Live your life with your heart


And some will never realize 
What it takes to do whats right 
getting over the fence sometimes
Is what it ́s all about


Live your life
Live your life
Live your life with your heart

7. The words you never say Words/Music: Anders Norman)


Will you ever ever tell him
Bout the things that we did
Will you always be pretending
It would happen anywayAnd will you keep yourself in silence
Or will you open up the cageSometimes I hear you calling
In the early morning haze


And you leave me there awakened
As the dream slowly fades
It dies in that moment
in the words you never say


Will you ever make him understand
You ́re in love with another man
Will you tell him bout your problems
Or continue with your dance


And leave me there awakened
As the dream slowly fades
And it dies in that moment
in the words you never say


Will you tell him about me
Will you conquer your fears
Lay the truth in the open
It ́s in the words, the words I ́ll ever hear


Will you ever ever tell him
Bout the love we once shared
Will you ever explain bout the
way you really cared

And leave him there awakened
As the dream slowly fades
And it dies in a moment
It ́s in the words you ́ll never say

10. Playing on the radio   Words/Music: Anders Norman)


When you walk out of my life,
will the sun still shine
Will heaven carry its stars
Will the rain empty the clouds like the tears
Will the wind blow away my doubt


and I see in your eyes,
all the secrets we hide,
all the words we left behind
and our love so strong, yet impossible
When we live our separate lives


I dont wanna see you again

Get out of my life


You hear me on the radio
And all those songs I sing about love
You see me on the TV shows
Playing those songs I wrote about us
playing on the radio
acting like I know what I’m talking about
What I ́m talking about


Well I’made made up my mind,
and I left you behind
Making sure You’re out of my life
You sneak up beside,
give a kiss and a smile
We make love
Like it’s our last goodbye


I dont wanna see you again
Get out of my life


You hear me on the radio
And all those songs I sing about love
You see me on the TV shows
Playing those songs I wrote about us
playing on the radio
acting like I know what I’m talking about


Well we followed our hearts

and it made us a little bit crazy
It ́s time for goodbyes and ending the lies completely


We used to talk on phone,
every moment alone
Now we just talk for a while
We used to miss each other, crave and desire
You used to drive me wild
I dont wanna see you again
Get out of my life

2. Rockin' America  (Words/Music: Anders Norman)

Stateline border at a quarter to nine
Radio playing I ́m on fire
morning coffee and the new head lines
The man says rain but it still is dry
Passing by through the outskirts of town
ragged fences and the shades are drawn
shotgun houses with a yellowed lawn
It ́s rock in america, and here we come


I know it ́s gonna be alright
I ́m counting on you tonight
Place is jumping, when we hit the lights
Playing our songs, we ́re rocking america


A different town every day
Spend all night on the interstate
Blue hotels with the shades of grey
Early mornings silent break


I know it ́s gonna be alright
I ́m counting on you tonight
Place is jumping, when we hit the lights
Playing our songs, we ́re rocking america


Well I see your faces one by oneClapping your hands and getting it done
People are dancing and singing along
We ́re rocking america, playing our songs


It ́s always alone on the road
got no sleep and I’m short on smokes
Landscapes changing, but people don ́t
End of the line, we ́re out of jokes
I know it ́s gonna be alright
I ́m counting on you tonight
Place is jumping, when we hit lights
Playing our songs, we ́re rocking america

5.  My Little Girl  (Words/Music: Anders Norman)

You will always be my little girl
You ́ll always be a part of my world
And I remember a small hand in mine
We were always, all of the time
you grow older, you open your eyes
Your safe haven turning to lies
You ́ve got your life now and the story ́s the same
Another angel unfolding her wings


That little girl
It ́s hard to let go
My little girl
A young woman you know
That little girl
She welcomed me home
My little child
That once was my own


I cant always make you understand
I ́m your dad, I ́m not one of your friends
You do believe you know the ways of the world
And I remind you, you ́re just a little girl


That little girl
It ́s hard to let go
My little girl
A young woman you know
That little girl
She welcomed me home
My little child
That I held in my arms


How we were dancing so tight
In the living room light
Feel asleep with her cheek to my ear
And I carried her up to her bed and I smiled
my little girl sleeping there

8. Visionary Man  Words/Music: Anders Norman)


He’s a legend in his time
where he goes they know his name
But he’s tired and troubled in his mind
They all want a piece of him
Hunt him from behind
For a picture in the paper
to their headlines


Still he’s standing in the spotlight every night
And he’s playing like the last night of his life
Visionary Man
Doing what he can
Visionary Man
Makes us understand


he has lived a thousand lives
And he wrote a thousand songs
And he tells tells the world about it
and what’s gone wrong
But no one seems to care
Is there anybody there
To see the signs and speak about our fears


And he’s standing in the spotlight every night
And he’s playing like the last night of his life
Visionary Man
Doing what he can
Visionary Man
Makes us understand


Pay attention to the sun
and the rain and the seasons
Pay attention to the man with the vision

11. Just another Mile  Words/Music: Anders Norman)


one little girl is picking up a flower
waiting for the sun to shine
a pilgrim walker, searching for the light
a forever changing line


It's one for the road, two for forgiveness
three for the truth in life
It's close to the bone,

for our sisters and our brothers
who did you leave behind


Oh it’s just one more mile
chasing the promises you left behind
Oh it’s just one more mile
day after day on the road of life
it’s just another mile,
it’s just another mile


One little girl on her way to Santiago
Walking an ancient track
She ́s got a mind of her own,
her way to paradise
She ́s never going back


Oh it’s just one more mile
Chasing the promises you left behind
Oh it’s just one more mile
day after day on the road of life
it’s just another mile,
it’s just another mile


and she ́s holding on to a dream that never dies
and she ́s getting closer to the clouds in her eyes and itʼs just another mile


one little girl is picking up a flower
waiting for the sun to shine
a pilgrim walker, searching for the light
forever changing line


Oh it’s just one more mile
Chasing the promises you left behind
Oh it’s just one more mile
day after day on the road of life
it’s just another mile,


3. That's a shame  (Words/Music: Anders Norman)

He looked up to you.
Like young brothers do
You didn’t see him when you lied
He wore the shame for you
He had the same name too
You took his trust, You took his pride


When he told You how he feels
About the Things You ́ve done
You just laughed and turn it around and around
and that ́s a shame
That ́s a shame


They all kept their faces, after you got outt
He wrote you a letter, saying what life is really about
They got their share of meeting people with doubt
And they all carried the burden of
You breaking their hearts


When he told You how he feels
About the Things You ́ve done
You just laughed and turn it around and around
and that ́s a shame
That ́s a shame


There was no shame in your body
No care at all
You were living You ́re life
You didn’t need anyone.....anyone...anyone at all
He looked up to you.
Like young brothers do
but now he lost you out of sight
and that ́s a shame
and that ́s a shame
Yeah that ́s a shame

6.  Small Town Star (Words/Music: Anders Norman)


Thereʼs a smalltown man
In a smalltown bar
playing his acoustic guitar
With his smalltown friends
and his smalltown band
heʼs trying to be a star


Well he is middleaged, ainʼt got no hair
he thinks he still got a shot
Heʼs says itʼs never too late, to get that break
with all the talent heʼs got

And heʼs there every weekend
in the local hearts
Singing songs for the lonely
and the lucky ones
heʼs a smalltown star, a smalltown star


Heʼs seen this town
he was born and raised
know all the faces in the crowd
and when friday comes
and clock strikes ten
you hear the same old sound

Cus heʼs there every weekend
in the local hearts
Singing songs for the lonely
and the lucky ones
heʼs a smalltown star, a smalltown star

and heʼs playing those songs
song after song
and the people wanna keep on going
all night long


Thereʼs a smalltown man
In a smalltown bar
playing his acoustic guitar

9. Who I am    Words/Music: Anders Norman)


I take a walk for three hours each day
Watching the clouds turn white from grey
As all the people leave for work in the city
I stroll around along this bay
In the days I can really see the difference
for what I feel and what I say
Through the years I finally found a guidance
and found the man I choose to be
and I see the things that other people wont
And I believe in every single little no


This is who I am
This is what I do
This is what I want
When I’m playing for you
Playing for you
My life
My love
My song


I had a job but I couldn’t really stand it
So I decided to be free
When I'm playing I’m doing what I wanna
And I have changed my life completely


And now I do the things so many people don't
And I believe in every single little no


This is who I am
This is what I do
This is what I want
When I’m playing for you
Playing for you
My life
My love
My song


And if you’re lost
You start paying with your life
Never mind the cost
It ́s time to draw the line
This is who I am
This is what I do
This is what I want
When I’m playing for you
Playing for you
My life
My love
My song

12 It's time  Words/Music: Anders Norman)


I've been up this road oh so many times
Making it easy for you is one of my crimes
You never saw the way the world

watched you dance
You know, Ignorance is bliss with no one to offend


And I was feeling so lucky, happy and sad
Happy to have met you still wish I never had
But You and I we were closer than few
Still there was many miles between us
We kept away from the truth


It ́s time to walk the wire

If you ́re waiting for the change
You might be stuck in a lie
it ́s time to find a way
It ́s time to figure out your life
I tell you over and over and over again, It ́s time


So you read a lot of books

how to liberate your mind
Digging deep into yourself

and try meditate sometimes
Spend many of years with who you are,

and trying to find
Something obviously lost,

when you finalize your life


It ́s time to walk the wire
If you ́re waiting for the change
You might be stuck in a lie
it ́s time to find a way
It ́s time to figure out your life
I tell you over and over again, It ́s time


Some people that are wise try to make us understand
You can only live a life if you have love in your hands
And it makes me so lucky happy and sad
And finally realize is a dream is as close as we get


13 Change the world  Words/Music: Anders Norman)


so you say you dont like him, down on the ground
You say he wonʼt fit, in your perfect little town
you say you know all about his kind and his friends
Heʼs down on his knees, reaching out with his hands
alright
stranger after stranger, in a crowded street
He moves all over town, looking for a place to eat
sitting on the sidewalk, He ainʼt asking for lot
Heʼs down on his corner , land heʼs shaking what heʼs got

rain wonʼt wash these weathered hands
and judgement reigns in this desolate town
youʼll see the truth when you ́re looking at me
Donʼt look away, Iʼll be your remedy
If youʼre wrong and Iʼm right this time
can you save my soul tonight
can we change the world






Life is a mystery, if you look in both ends
fill up with predjudice, you lay it in terms
if youʼre way up in the clouds or out on a limb
doesnʼt matter at all if you think youʼre better than him now
pre-chorus
rain wonʼt wash these weathered hands
and judgement reigns in this desolate town

youʼll see the truth when you ́re looking at me
Donʼt look away, Iʼll be your remedy
If youʼre wrong and Iʼm right this time
can you save my soul tonight
bridge:
sometimes our luck runs out, and one thing leads to another
some will lose and some go down, could be anyone among us
