5. It’s Hard To Love Sometimes

Music & Lyrics : Cicci Landén


It’s hard to love sometimes
Two people side by side
There’s heavy skies hanging over
Making It rain down

A darkness I can’t prevail
Every time we fail

It brings me to tears
When you say those words I don’t wanna hear
Every time’s like a knife in my heart
It leaves a scar and it’s falling apart

It’s hard to explain sometimes
Why we do the things we do
But an innocent one can’t be the one to blame
For the things we choose to say

A darkness I can’t prevail
Every time we fail

It brings me to tears
When you say those words I don’t wanna hear
Every time’s like a knife in my heart
It leaves a scar and it’s falling apart

How come It don’t come easy
To just, let it go
It’s one to many times now
And I wan’t you to know

It brings me to tears
When you say those words I don’t wanna hear
Every time’s like a knife in my heart
It leaves a scar and it’s falling apart

4. My Kind of Town

Music & Lyrics : Cicci Landén


I was walking down Broadway, 3 Am
In Nashville, Tennessee
Surrounded by sounds of living the dream
Feels like holy grounds to me

Saloons lighting up the way
To picking and fiddlers play
I was walking down Broadway, 3 Am
In the heart of Tennessee

I believe in a good line of words and a fine melody
This place set emotions running free
I can feel there´s something happening inside of me
This city fills my soul with energy
This is my kind of town

The sun is rising over Cumberland river
It´s such a sight to see
Cardinals fly, painting the sky
Singing love songs for me

In this southern charm I stay
To start a brand new day
The sun is rising over Cumberland river
It´s such a sight to see

I believe in a good line of words and a fine melody
This place set emotions running free
I can feel there´s something happening inside of me
This city fills my soul with energy
This is my kind of town

With Honkey Tonk Tuesdays and Whiskey rounds
Writers singing ´bout heartache and pain
Down on music City Row
Where no one is a stranger
That´s my kind of town
This is my kind of town

I believe in a good line of words and a fine melody
This place set emotions running free
I can feel there´s something happening inside of me
This city fills my soul with energy
This is my kind of town

3. Treasure This Moment

Music & Lyrics : Cicci Landén


When I´m thinking back, way back when
I got my first guitar when I was ten
How it all comes together in the end, It´s true
Cause It got me here to sing for you
Got me here to sing for you

There were hurdles to cross and mountains to climb
And doors that closed and new ones to find
It was hard to hear, you´re nothing good
But I held my head high cause I knew I could
Held my head up high cause I knew I could

Now I hear my songs playin´on the radio
That reminds me I was brave enough to know
It is the little things in life , that makes us grow
How I treasure this moment with you
How I treasure this moment with you

Did I break some rules along the way
I´m not really sorry I just have so much to say
And everything I had in sight
It led me here to this stage tonight
Led me here to this stage tonight

Spend years of trying to figure it out
How I ended up being just one in the crowd
It took some hard work and desire To get me where I´m at
There is no other place I´d rather be
There is no other place I´d rather be

Now I hear my songs playin´on the radio
That reminds me I was brave enough to know
It is the little things in life , that makes us grow
How I treasure this moment with you
How I treasure this moment with you

Amir Aly: Bass, Electric guitars, , 6 & 12 string Acoustic guitar, Piano, Mandolin, Accordion, Percussion


Many moons ago
A little girl grew up not knowing
With a dusty heart and soul

One day her mother said out loud
Pointing fingers out through the crowd
See that man, you ought to know

There´s a
Picture missing in my family tree
A branch cut off and still unknown to me
There´s a
Empty space around the family table
It can´t be filled even if I was able
There´s a
Picture missing in my family tree

Would´ve liked to have known you
Would´ve shown you
My drawing of a cat

Playing dressed up
Putting on crazy clothes
And a funny hat

Jump up and down in your furniture shop
Having snow cones in the sun
And laughs that never stops

There´s a
Picture missing in my family tree
A branch cut off and still unknown to me
There´s a
Empty space around the family table
It can´t be filled even if I was able
There´s a
Picture missing in my family tree

If we ended up
Face to face
Would I see myself in you

And the time that´s passed
Is erased
I wish we could start a new
There´s a
Picture missing in my

There´s a
Picture missing in my family tree
A branch cut off and still unknown to me
There´s a
Empty space around the family table
It can´t be filled even if I was able
There´s a
Picture missing in my family tree
Tree

I took the long dirt road away from here
Don´t know where i´m going Not sure where i´ve been
I´m on the outskirts of town, just drivin´around
searching for some answers they´re nowhere to be found

We´re all a little damaged taking punches on the way
let´s pretend for a moment that everything´s ok

I wanna drive through the brisk winds on a bright and shiny day
capture the flavor of this beautiful place
I wanna ride and feel the sun in my face
with the top rolled down in my Rambler today

I made a stop where the backroads end
there´s an old abandoned boxcar and it´s overgrown rail
The wildflowers growing up to the mill
it´s a moment of colors amidst of something grey

Now everything has beauty but not everyone can see
let´s pretend for a moment that it´s all here for me
I wanna drive through the brisk winds on a bright and shiny day
capture the flavor of this beautiful place
I wanna ride and feel the sun in my face
with the top rolled down in my Rambler today

10. FLY WITH THE WIND

Music & Lyrics: Cicci Landén
Cicci Landén: Lead Vocals
Amir Aly: Piano & Keyboards


You are not here
And I I´m crying

I am alone
In tears denying

Why you had to go
No one knows

Fly with the wind
Let our love guide you in
And fear no more
As you reach the shore

I looked in your eyes
To see you falling

You kissed my hand
And then we heard the angels calling

And why you had to go
No one knows

Fly with the wind
Let our love guide you in
And fear no more
As you reach the shore

Fly with the wind
Let our love guide you in
And fear no more
As you reach the shore

It´s time to let go
Set the dark aside and know
The love you feel inside
Open up don´t hide

See the children run
Laughing in the sun
So innocent and true
So full of hope and nothing blue

Now the moment is right to realize
What we have before our eyes
Now take your time make it last
Cause a life can end so fast

See the morning rise
And the glow in your lover’s eyes
Living each moment through
Feel the light that shines for you

Follow your voice deep within
It´s so easy and you´ll win
Cause that call is the truth
Take the chance make a move

Now the moment is right to realize
What we have before our eyes
Now take your time make it last
Cause a life can end so fast
Now take your time make it last
Cause a life can end so fast

Amir Aly: Bass, Electric Guitar, Piano, Wurlitzer & Percussion


I went out for a walk
On a pitch-black night
And there under a broken streetlamp
I see a young woman crying

Tears of hopelessness
That her home is lost
And no matter how hard she tries
The pain is showing in her eyes

She cries for hunger
She´s tired and alone
So scared and broken
And she needs to know

That I see you
And the tears on your face
Oh I hear you
Please tell me your story
Let me hold you
I´ll take you in my arms
And I´ll show you
That dreams can come true
That dreams can come true

Her dreams used to reach
Up to the stars just like mine
With family and loved ones
Doing just fine

But it´s a long and winding road
This life we live
It´s so easy to lose your way

She cries for hunger
She´s tired and alone
So scared and broken
And she needs to know

That I see you
And the tears on your face
Oh I hear you
Please tell me your story
Let me hold you
I´ll take you in my arms
And I´ll show you
That you are not alone
You are not alone

That I see you
And the tears on your face
Oh I hear you
Please tell me your story
Let me hold you
I´ll take you in my arms
And I´ll show you
That dreams can come true
That dreams can come true
For you

Johan Gullbo: Hammond B3
Mattias Pedersen: Drums & Percussion
Amir Aly: Bass, Piano & Percussion


I´m running blind
On endless grounds
I´m running scared
From all your sounds

Is blood as thick as they say
I don´t see how it is anyway

This is more that I can handle
Will it be worth it in the end
I fall into a trap of old familiar scenes
You see me and look the other way
You see me
And have nothing to say

The choice you make
In your life
Is cutting marks
Like a knife

Is blood as thick as they say
Then what´s the beauty of it anyway

This is more that I can handle
Will it be worth it in the end
I fall into a trap of old familiar scenes
You see me and look the other way
You see me
And have nothing to say

This is more that I can handle
Will it be worth it in the end
I fall into a trap of old familiar scenes
You see me and look the other way
You see me
And have nothing to say

A wind of change
On my face
I let it in
And I embrace

6. LESSON LEARNED

Johan Gullbo: Hammond B3
Mattias Pedersen: Drums
Amir Aly: Bass, Wurlitzer & Percussion


Hey there you go
Away again that´s all you know
Is it easy letting go
Is there really nothing left for you to show

Crawl and hide behind the wall
That you´ve built for safety not to fall
For how long can you go on
Until you have
Your lesson learned

You´re chasing shadows in the dark
Oh so useless without a spark
Take a real good look inside
You might see something that does not need to hide

Crawl and hide behind the wall
That you´ve built for safety not to fall
For how long can you go on
Until you have
Your lesson learned

You will end up all alone
And there will be no one around for you to own
A whole lifetime will pass you by
You never gave it a chance you never tried

To tear down that wall
That you´ve built for safety not to fall
For how long can you go on
Until you have
Your lesson learned
For how long can you go on
Until you have
Your lesson learned
