Written in early 2006, "Phoenix" was the first indication that I could write synth pop. It's the song with which I participated in 'open stage' competition UKM, which led to me getting stage time at the very popular Festival Töreboda 2006 and my first fan (besides my mom); it was the first song I ever recorded and it was even recognised as a runner-up in the Singer-Songwriter Awards back in 2008.

Yeah, this one has a pretty special place in my heart. It's only appropriate that it's a love song.


Fly me
Fly me to the edge of day
Cry me
I'll cry you all my blood, you'll cry my tears away
Share me
Share my wounds and heal my pain
Scare me
Scare me with the beauty of your eyes again

I don't dare to walk here alone without you by my side
I don't dare to stay in this lonely night
Fire away with your light

Claim me
The sky is your domain tonight
Blame me
I'm blaming you for making me, too, take flight
'Bove me
Your wings and voice caress my skin
Love me
Scare me, fly me, claim me, love me deep within

I don't dare to ...

Fly me ... to the edge of day
Claim me ... the sky is your domain
Love me ... deep within
Touch me
Touch me with your voice and heal my soul again

I don't dare to ...

Fly me, cry me, scare me and love me, I pray
Would you stay?
I don't want to stay on the ground this night
Phoenix, do please give me flight
