Another World – Ane Brun

Sunday, 20 May 2012

 

 

I need another place

Where there’ll be peace

I need another world

This one’s nearly gone

Still have too many dreams

Never seen the light

I need another world

A place where I can go

 

I’m gonna miss the sea

I’m gonna miss the snow

I’m gonna miss the bees

I’ll miss the things that grow

 

I’m gonna miss the trees

I’m gonna miss the sun

I’ll miss the animals

I’m gonna miss you all

 

I need another place

Where there’ll be peace

I need another world

This one’s nearly gone

 

I’m gonna miss the birds

Singing all their songs

I’m gonna miss the wind

Been kissing me so long

 

Another world

Another world

 

Post by Evelyn  – a haunting, sad, sad song…

    what an education – thanks ladies, didn’t know he had already sung this – but I love Hope too…. don’t we all? I thinks that has been here somewhere… I shall look!

    One of my favourite’s too Belinda…in fact all of the songs off that album are great!

    Thank you Evelyn. And good to know that I’m not the only one who likes sad and haunting. This is my favourite from Anthony and the Johnsons – he does have an unusual voice and I love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_Nq9fUX2WE
    Weirdly I think that young Birdy sounds a bit like him – she’s sad and haunting too.

    Oops wrong link, here is the original. The other song is just as good though!

    This version is good and I haven’t heard it before, so thanks for that Evelyn. But still staying faithful to Antony and the Johnsons, he can sing at my funeral any day! He might not be everyone’s cup of tea…
