"The Gallop"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

I’m balancing on a really tough tightrope
My horse has caught up with the other riders
and I’m not a rider, I have never been
and I’ve got problems
to keep staying on my horse

Here I am with the fully equipped riders
One little mistake and you are screwed
I fear for the moment I will fall off my horse and my horse will run away,
cause I know it’s unavoidable

Run my dear, and be that shiny spear
I hope that this will hold
And please, oh please, do not rear

I don’t dare to breath in this bubble,
cause bubbles are brittle and very rare,
but I guess I should enjoy the flight
as long as it lasts,
instead of waiting for the crash

The others fulfill all demands
in job advertisements
They’ve got polished and expensive riding boots
And after all these reverses
I am here in my Converses,
they are quite dirty, but I’m proud to be here and to be myself

Run my dear, I want to be everywhere
go on reflecting the sun,
you are making my life fun

We’re catching unreachable galaxies
They surround us
and then we’re a part of the whole
We’re filling out the dark, dark gaps between the stars,
my horse and I am shining stronger
We’ve got fever cause we’re feeling loved,
oh, we’ve got fever cause we’re feeling loved

But suddenly May Silver Grey
looks really sceptical
And after jumping over a glistening brook
she drops behind
Oh come on, go on, trust in your strange rider
and don’t forget
how successful we were just now

But I guess the fun is over for this time
I’m like a pauper who have tasted wine
I found a drop in the gutter and the feeling that it left
is like the echo of a chime

We were really near
You deceit will really sear
If you’re not helpful and leave me if I don’t hold,
I’ll go buying me a moped dear
Cause I’m stubborn, wistful, proud
and I’ll be there!
On the finishing line
I’ll stand and cheer!

"Faded Colors"
Text& musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

Oh these people with charisma
I want to be like these people with charisma

But there’s faded colours on my clothes
I’ve bought them for too long ago,
because I’m calm and I am silent

Oh these people with charisma
I’ve tried to be like these people with charisma

But there’s faded colours on my clothes,
I’ve bought them for too long ago,
because I’m calm and I am silent

Rest is over and they go back to the adventures
they leave me again on the Rest Island
they make me lose my direction
and forget who I am
they make the life that I usually like
seem worthless and sad,
and when they leave me to come back, even richer,
I wish that I could catch up with them

But there’s faded colours on my clothes,
I bought them for too long ago,
because I’m calm and I am silent
But faded colours are colours too,
they tell that I spend my time with the sea view,
’m also rich and should be proud
So proud

"Sabadee"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

Oh yes I know
where I’m happy,
oh as happy as I could be
I found my Eden after all
I believe it was not only just a dream
It’s the biggest luck
that I met you,
cause there is only one for me
And I haven’t got
any words for my gratitude
for the things that you do

What can I say
Oh I found you
but I turned away
to be calm and safe,
and once again it’s quiet where I am

It won’t be like sabadee deli dada,
lada didada, nana ninana,
cause you are like sabadee delida,
I’m sorry but words really aren’t enough

And yes I know
that we sooner or later
would be joining daily round,
even Eden has a ground
But I left so quickly,
didn’t even taste your mouth
Now I don’t bring your smile,
not your flavour, not your sound,
and what we’ve got is this life,
can’t miss days of that size,
and now I’ll never know,
know how many these days could have been,
but maybe happiness ends where it begins

What can I say
oh I found you
but I turned away
to be calm and safe,
and once again it’s quiet where I am

It won’t be like sabaee deli dada,
lada didada, nana ninana,
cause you are like sabadee delida,
I’m sorry but words really aren’t enough

Oh, save me from the green grass
oh, save me from the fact

that you are like sabadee deli dada,
lada didada, nana ninana,
yes you are like sabadee delida
I’m sorry but words really aren’t enough

"Plast"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

En man drev en sajt där han sålde snälla ord
och som han hade räknat ut var det mycket lönt
Tillsist kunde han ta tretusen för en fil
utan att det blev sämre affär
Vid jul var han mångmiljonär

En familjetragedi blev hyllad tevefilm
för att den belyste ett bortglömt problem
Men var det av kärlek skaparn gjorde filmen
eller berodde hans eld på
att poolen redan var beställd?

”Insidan räknas, skit i dockorna i media”,
sa en tjej till en dam som inte hade nåt hår
Gumman blev tröstad
ovetande om att tjejen var framgångsrik
i att lura folk till sin perukfabrik

En flicka fick syn på ett träd och blev så glad
över att se nånting som var vid liv i stan utan rast
Hon rusade fram och omfamnade trädet
men då såg hon att det var av plast
På en skylt hon fann stod det: ”Made in Taiwan”

Välkommen till en värld gjord av plast,
där man vill hitta nåt som är tveklöst sant,
men allting ser så naturtroget ut,
att du kanske aldrig finner
Att sakna blir allt du hinner 
 

"Ginger Man"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

Oh Ginger Man
how he surpised me the day
he said that he was in love with me,
Ginger Man,
to magnificent for me to handle

Oh Ginger Man,
he made me long so hard 
to share his heart
so we could be as one, Ginger Man,
in a newborn life without a past
Wihout a past

But Ginger Man,
instead my heart was locked
and could not join his wild,
Ginger Man,
and I felt shut out
from the flourishing life around me
Oh Ginger Man,
there must be a bad construction
of my heart, Ginger Man,
wasting my emotions on wrong people
Wrong people

Oh Ginger Man, 
my love is a panther
that comes sneaking around him so shy, Ginger Man,
he's to valuable and rare
to waste like that
Oh Ginger Man,
for this I have been so sad
but he has kept warming me,
Ginger Man,
I will always fight for the best for him
Always

Oh ginger man...

Oh Ginger Man,
sometimes I think of his mum,
what an asset she brought to world
with his birth, Ginger Man,
he's too magnificient for me to handle
To handle

"Passion"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

One day when I was seven
and we went to the church
I’ve got the urge for playing on the guitar
that was left on the altar
When no one saw I picked it up and touched the strings
and I felt the vibrations in my bones,
yes in that huge room
I learnt the meaning of tones
 and went dizzy and warm

My passion was outside the laws,
passion’s not meant to be controlled
It’s impossible to hide
and nothing else can decide about us,
about us, and our destiny

My parents wanted me to
inherit their café,
so I was forced to waste all holidays
learning counting and waiting
But I am ineffective and forgetful and mixed up the prices
and burnt the cakes,
until I spent the nights awake with a lump in my throat

But then I realized:
Why shall I feel sad? I’ve got everything I can wish!”
So I opened the bag and set my passion free,
and it said:
"Just leave the cash desk and follow me.
Maybe you’ll be a little poor,
but you won’t care about any score
Cause I’m impossible to hide
and nothing else can decide about you 
and what you’re gonna do!”

Cause even if you’re
the most oppressed thing with a soul,
passion will make you lose control
It’s impossible to hide
and nothing else can decide
about us, and our destiny,
because essentially our souls are always free

"New Beginning"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

The autumn achieves a feeling of closure,
in the way it’s hiding summer
under frozen leaves
The winter is near, but I won’t be here
when the darkness wins, my boxes are packed, and I fear

But it’s just a new beginning,
among endless new beginnings
I must think that way to not die
in the fall
that it’s just a new beginning,
among endless new beginnings
I must think that way to not die
in the fall

I wish I had nine lives, so I didn’t have to mourn
all time that I’m losing
on unsuccessful dives,
cause to get out of this circle
I must reach out my hand,
and risk that no one will take it,
risk one more brand

But it’s just a new beginning,
among endless new beginnings
I must think that way to not die in the fall
that it’s just a new beginning,
among endless new beginnings
I must think that way to not die
in the fall
the fall

Shall I be open and risk to be hit by the arrows?
Shall I be closed against everything including the sparrows?
’m not a cat,
I’m just as vulnerable as a human can be,
when she hurtles like this,

into a new beginning
among endless new beginnings
I must think that way to not die in the fall

"I Knew a Man"
Text & musik: Niina Palm Kujansuu

I knew a man from Colombia
who had lived through war and pneumonia
People bowed to the survivor,
admiring that he after all seemed to be fine
They didn’t know that he
instead of crying hit his wife

I knew a woman far from Colombia,
after a life of being used
she had insomnia,
she was taught life was just about enduring,
so she had forgotten how to sing
I fear she’s dead or a zombie now

But now I’ve met you
who have an endless charm
no matter the harm
When everything stands still
in the year’s hardest chill,
then you remain warm

Like heavy showers in the summer
your tears are running dry
and be that way,
don’t ever let them freeze 
into a stone that you can’t grind
The road may seem long
but I can see that you’re strong
So when you don’t see any way out,
when your chest is filled with glue, remember,
that our sunshine is you
Our light is you
