BETTER THAN THIS LYRICS:

Marion raven better than this sgl 2

Better than this
(Written by: Marion Ravn/Børge Fjordheim)

So now it´s time to carry on
We´re no longer stereo
Oh we lost the fire from September
and I can’t do with only ember

And now´s the day to let it be
cause you don’t really care for me
weeks of silence you have put me through
and I never knew where I had you

I wish I could push pause tonight
in the middle of the applause and the light
How we are together I´ll forever miss
Cause I know nothing gets better than this

But now its time to look ahead
forget the things we never said
Wish I could go back and do it again
maybe we would do it differently then

I wish I could push pause tonight
in the middle of the applause and the light
How we are together I´ll forever miss
Cause I know nothing gets better than this

I wish I could push pause tonight
in the middle of the applause and the light
How we are together I´ll forever miss

Oh how I wish time could stand still tonight
In front of me you are such a sight
How we are together I´ll forever miss
Cause I know nothing gets better than this
Cause I know nothing gets better than this
I know nothing gets better than this

THE MINUTE LYRICS

The minute

THE MINUTE
(Skrevet av Marion Ravn og Børge Fjordheim)

Oh there you were and I was not prepared
I wish it was a better time
Oh there you were with your forbidden stare
and you could not be mine

When our eyes meet, the more I want you near
The more I know I will resign
I never looked, but now I found you here
my feet and hands you bind

And in the minute you let go
well,that´s the minute you will know
and you´ll find you´re nothing like before
You rather die, then let it go
You rather die, then let it go
You rather die, you´ll never let it go
and you will never be the same again

So here we are and there´s no turning back
I wouldn´t do it if I could
So here we are remind me why it´s wrong
Because it feels so good

When our eyes meet, the more I feel alive
the more I know I wanna be
The only one who wakes up by your side
the only one you see

and you will never be the same again….

IN DREAMS
(Ravn,Eriksrud,Kongshavn)

Do you remember the smell of rain beneath the hot sun?
Do you remember when we took the turn to what we’ve become?
Do you sometimes look over your shoulder, like you heard a voice
I know I messed up real good when I made that choice

I wish that I kissed you
I kissed you when I could
In dreams it´s so easy
In dreams it feels so good

In dreams
In dreams

I´m always thinking of you when I’m driving real fast
But I´m not proud to say that I linger in the past
Still it’s my secret joy to write my story over
Took me far to long to discover
To Discover

I wish that I kissed you
I kissed you when I could
In dreams it´s so easy
In dreams it feels so good

In dreams
everything is like it ought to be
In dreams
everything is making sense to me

Oh let it go
If you don’t have it, you don’t have it
Oh let it go
Don´t let your dreaming be a habit
Oh let it go
when I messed up I just knew it
Oh let it go
You did the right thing and I blew it

I wish that I kissed you
I kissed you when I could
In dreams it´s so easy
In dreams it feels so good

In dreams
everything is like it ought to be
In dreams
everything is making sense to me

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I want to wish you all a happy new year! 2013 has truly been an amazing year for me. I think I could say it´s been the best year of my life so far! Thanks to everyone who has made it possible. Everyone who has been listening to my music, coming to my concerts and believed in me. To my international fans who has been waiting so patiently for a release in their own country. I am still working on it and hope to have some good news for you soon! 2014 is already looking out to be an exciting year. I am already in the studio making new music and have plans to play a lot of shows with my band. Hope to see you all very soon!

Some of the highlights of 2013 has been:
The Norwegian tv show “Everytime we meet”, releasing my album “Song from a blackbird” in Norway, getting married, starring in a Norwegian movie musical. playing my own shows around Norway and my amazing fans!

DREAM COME TRUE!

2013 has been an amazing year so far. It started with a successful tv show in Norway, followed by a Norwegian release of my second album “Songs from a blackbird”, a beautiful wedding and a summer filled with festival shows with my own band. This has been everything I could dream of. Now I finish my year with the biggest dream of all. My own tour in Norway. I will be playing concerts on the east coast of Norway. People will buy a ticket with my name on it and come and listen to my music, and my music alone. This is a big deal for me. I can not wait and I hope to see you there. For my fans outside of Norway, I am still working on an international deal. There is nothing more I want then to travel the world with my music. But it takes time. Thank you for being patient. I hope to have some great news for you next year and that 2014 will be our year.

Hugs, Marion

SHOWCASE

Bilde 14

Ten days ago I had a showcase in Oslo, Norway. It was actually my first concert with a full band in Norway EVER! So it was really about time. I played songs from my new album “Songs from a Blackbird” together with my new and fantastic band. Tons of people came and it felt amazing. The night could not have gone more perfectly. I really hope it won´t be long until we get to play again. Hopefully also outside of Norway. Here are some photos from the show: (Photo by: Roger Fosaas)

NORWAYS NATIONAL DAY

Today we have celebrated the National Day of Norway. The 17th of May.
It´s an amazing celebration and if you ever take the trip here..you should come in May.
It´s an experience you´ll never forget ;) This year I celebrated the day at home with my family. It was an relaxing day with not even a drop of champagne. But I exchanged it with tons of ice cream and cake!
I love this day and I love my country!

IN THE STUDIO!!

This week I have started in the studio recording my new record! FINALLY! It feels really good :) I have also been so lucky to get two amazing producers , Thom Hell and Even Ormestad. They really know how to take care of my songs. It so great to hear how they grow with every instrument and every harmony recorded. I can´t wait for you all to hear it. Hopefully by the end of the year..
(depending on what country to leave in that is..) :)

Yesterday I drove to Voss in Norway to sing at the opening for their new “wind tunnel”. They somehow managed to talk me into trying it and I am so happy they did! It was so much fun! So if you ever come to Norway you should really make the trip to Voss. It´s beautiful there and they are known for their extreme sports.

THE MAKING OF..

Bilde kopi

Making a music video is one of the most fun things you get to do as an artist! If I try to count..I believe I´ve made 15 of them through the years!! That´s crazy if you think about it! So when I say that this is my favorite and by far the best one, it really counts for something! My good friend, Marie Kristiansen has directed this video and I think she did an amazing job. She really captured the essences of the song. I was also so lucky to get the talented Norwegian actress Gitte Witt to appear in my video. Here are some backstage photos of the making of “Colors turn to grey” :

FINE FEATHERHEADS!

Bilde

Thought I´d share with you, me and my girlfriends new “must have”. You´ve probably seen it on me already. It´s “Fine Featherheads”. It´s feathers that you can use as hair extensions. You can have one or as many as you want in your hair. They also have really cool feather earrings. I like the more “rocky” ones that are black or red. My friend is blond and likes the brown ones. You can see different kinds on their website: http://www.finefeatherheads.com/
