about

Cairns & Edward Norway

Cairns & Edward is a songwriting, musical group of 3, based in Norway. We love writing songs and making melodies together. The process of making a song is such a special one, and we have come to see that the songs really have a life of their own. They travel through us, flow in their own rhythms and ask for their own melodies and words. We also work within other art-genres. ... more

Track Name: Arch
Arch

I’ll build an arch for you
I’ll walk the march for you
I know I seem to be a little bit wounded
But I’ll play my part for you
I’ll be a star for you
I’ll wear an oriental gown, and crown too.

And if you only give me one little blue sky
And if you only show me one piece of your life

I’ll plant a land for you
Outplay my hand for you
Make every little thing grow bigger around you

I’ll fly to Mars and back
Follow a moose track
My knees get wobbly when I know you are near me

You are bigger then one body
You are greater then one human song
You are bigger then one body
I am inside and you open the door

I’ll drink the sea for you
Reshape my ‘me’ for you
Take all the pieces and create something new for you
Track Name: Look At You
Look At You

I took a look at you
Last night
A letter came in through
The light

It said, in red
A child today
Would give us
A new way to play

You are billon drops of ink

There’s a thing with you
Tapping in to everything
There’s a love in you
Growing all out & into me

I took a look at you,
Again last night
A song came in
With the street-light

You’ve made a pirouette
In my heart
You’ve taken me
By surprise

You are billon drops of light
Track Name: Poetry Of Everything
The Poetry Of Everything

Islands don’t always float
But grow out of the water
Millimetres at the time
They grow with the speed of atoms
Just wee bits at the time

Mountains are not always made of stones
Sometimes they’re in our bodies
Sometimes they’re made of bones
They can be a dinosaur
Or maybe they’re just me

Fire can burn through the earth
The earth carries the oceans
Around us is the sky
Fire lives and dies in me
And I am not alone
Track Name: Angel
Angel

There’s a fallen angel
Lying on my bed
She’s a beautiful creature
With wings of golden thread

I don’t know where she came from
Or if she’s come to stay
But although she’s suffering
She gives so much away

She is strong
She is vulnerable
She sings me an open sky
She looks at me
Though her eyes are closed
Her tired fingers
Touch where I hurt the most

There’s a falling angel
Singing out of key
When everyone has gone away
She comforts me

Is this really happening?
Are you really here?
Feels so real

She is strong
She is vulnerable
She sings me an open sky
She looks at me
Though her eyes are closed
Her tired fingers
Touch where I hurt the most
Track Name: Circles And Lines
Circles & Lines

There is a way, of walking in circles
That is perfectly all right
There is a way, of walking in circles
When you need to pick a fight

There is a way, of walking in straight lines
With walls on both sides
There is a way, of walking in straight lines
Where the view is great
But you’re always late
To a party you don’t want to go

Choose your weapon
Snowball or gun
A sword you can step on
Stay or run
A pen that can write
There is no weapon as strong as the Light

There is a way, of going nowhere
That makes no sense at all
There is a way, of going nowhere
That gives all
Track Name: Hibernating
Hibernating

Here is the cave
That has grown around me
This is the space
Where the world can’t touch me

Here come the tides
They come and go, ebb and flow
Now is the time
To not be ready to let go

I have a bullet
In my butterfly wing
Inside the darkness
I am waiting to see

Here is the night
All the colours are here, but there ain’t no light
Outside, the storm
Is raging
Track Name: In Between
In Between

In between you and me
In between all
The days when the sun is wild
The days when I fall

In the middle of longing
In the midst of your grief
When the world above
Falls underneath

When the hand stops its writing
And the paint is all dry
In between finding continents
I cry

Growing closer to that space
The space in-between
Moving nearer to that place
The sacred in me
Growing closer to me

In between you and me
In between all
The days when the sun is pale
The days I stand tall
Track Name: Aeneas Song
Aeneas Song

I don’t want to be sad
But I am
I don’t want to loose you
But here’s the truth
The Sahara is made of sand
And I never really had you

I don’t want you to be gone
But you are
Wish I could keep you warm
But here’s the truth
You’re home is in my heart
But you? You’re sleeping in the snow

I don’t want the weight of you
But it’s here
I don’t want to carry you
But here’s the truth
Aeneas carried his dad
And you? You’re living on my shoulders
Track Name: The One Who Reflects Me
The One Who Reflects Me

If these arms are wide enough
If these flowers smell sweet enough
Will you let me stay here for a while?
Will you let me be by your side?

And if I loose my way again
Like so many times before
Will you lift me up again?
Will you carry me home?

‘Cause all I want
Is to feel
The way I feel with you

If your eyes are lakes to me
If your words have wings and could land in me
Will I comprehend who you are?
Will I understand what you give to me?

‘Cause all I want
Is to feel
The way I feel with you
Track Name: Train
I Am A Train

If I am what I experience
Then right now
I am a Train
Moving through the morning
Carried by the sunlight
I am, the reflection on the window

If I am what I experience
Then right now
I’m the Sun
Breaking through the window
Reaching for my Face
I am, the rays that play on my skin

All my tears flow
Like rain these days
Like in one of those cities where it rains a lot
But I'll reach a new city soon

If I am what I experience
Then right now
I’m a song
Streaming through your body
Reaching for your mind
I am song you will be singing
I am the song you will be singing
Track Name: Willow Trees
Willow Trees

I saw this fire
Burning deep within you eyes
I saw this fire
Deep within your soul

As you walked with me
Beneath the willow trees
You walked beside me
Beneath the willow trees

I walked this wire
From my heart into your mind
I walked this wire
Straight into your heart

As you walked with me
Beneath the willow trees
You walked beside me
Beneath the willow trees

You brought me higher
And I raise my glass to you
You brought me higher
I bless you, my love
Track Name: Soft
Soft (Sound Of Falling Things)

A leaf of a maple tree
A book from a shelf
Your shirt at the end of the day
Raindrops on the waves of the sea

A bomb from an aeroplane
A sheet of linen
A pin in a quiet theatre
The jumping trout returns again

Glass of a glass-stained window
Thunder on our roof
The patient’s heart from surgeon’s hands
The guillotine in 1801

A snowflake on the fire
Ashes on the snow
A cup on our stone floor kitchen
Bird dropping on a wire

A meteor in the night
A star once had grace
Ray of light on half opened eyes
Bird of prey in decisive flight
Track Name: Made It
Made It

You made it through the storm and rain
A storm that seemed to have no end
A wind that blows through every thing that finds it underway
You made it through the storm and rain
And found
A place to stay
