ich mag lene marlin sehr, besonders ihre texte. sie handeln von freundschaft und tod&liebe... wie sie es in ihren liedern rüberbringt fasziniert mich immer wieder aufs neue...
ich glaube sie is einer der wenigen sängerinnen die noch ihre texte selber schreiben..und das schätz ich sehr an ihr.

 

Im Alter von 15 Jahren bekam Lene Marlin von ihren Eltern zu Weihnachten eine Gitarre. Es hat nicht lange gedauert und sie brachte sich das spielen auf diesem Seiteninstrument selber bei und schrieb auch schon als Jugendliche ihre ersten Songs, die sie anfangs heimlich auf einem Kassettenrecorder aufnahm. Später, als ihre Songs besser wurden, trat sie in ihrem Zimmer auf und spielte für ihre Schulfreunde und Bekannte. Die Schulfreunde waren so begeistern, daß sie die Kassette heimlich dem Fernseh -und Radiosender NRK schickten. Nachdem Lene eingeladen wurde ihre Songs diesem Sender live zu präsentieren bekam sie auch schon wenige Wochen später einen Plattenvertrag bei Virgin Records Norwegen.

 

Lene Marlins erste CD

 

Die Single "Unforgivable Sinner" erschien Anfang 1998 und verkaufte sich schneller als jede andere Single in Norwegen zuvor. Als dann 1999 der Song "Sitting Down Here heraus kam war der Durchbruch perfekt. Selbst in Asien und ganz Europa wurde dieser Song in sämtlichen Radiostationen gespielt. Nachdem Lene ihren Schulabschluss mit sehr guten Noten bestanden hat, hat sie auch 1999 den internationalen Durchbruch mit dem Debüt-Album "Playing My Game" geschafft.

Sitting Down Here

Lene Marlin 10.05.1999

 

  Sitting Down Here Your words cut rather deeply,

They're just some other lies

I'm hiding from a distance,

I've got to pay the price

Defending all against it,

I really don't know why

You're obsessed with all my secrets,

You always make me cry

You seem to wanna hurt me

No matter what I do

I'm telling just a couple,

But somehow it gets to you

But I've learned how to get revenge

And I swear you'll experience that some day

 

I'm sitting down here,

But hey you can't see me, kinda invisible…

You don't sense my stay

Not really hiding, not like a shadow

Just thought I would join you for one day

I'm sitting down here,

But hey you can't see me

 

I'm trying not to avoid you,

Just don't wanna hear your voice

When you call me up so often,

I really don't have a choice

You're talking lie you know me

And wanna be my friend

But that's really too late now,

I won't try it once again

You may think that I'm loser,

That I don't really care

You may think that it's all forgotten,

But you should be aware

Cause I've learned to get revenge

And I swear you'll experience that some day

 

I'm sitting down here,

But hey you can't see me

Kinda invisible…

You don't sense my stay,

Not really hiding, not like a shadow

Just thought I would join you one day

I'm sitting down here,

But hey you can't see me

Kinda invisible

You don't sense my stay

Not really hiding, not like a shadow

But sure I wanna join you one day

 

 

 

 Playing My Game

Lene Marlin - 10.05.1999

 

Won't open my mouth,

You know what I'll say

It hurts me that it's gotta be this way

I can no longer hide

God knows I've tried

I held on as long as I could

If I could change it, I would

This is the way I am,

And this is what I do.

 

I cry my tears

But they're not for you

Playing a game

I know you've done too

I shouldn't have waited,

But still it's all the same

Cause you know,

I'm just playing my game.

 

Close your ears if you don't like

 the sound of my voice

You're acting like I

Like I had a choice

But to leave you behind well,

I've made up my mind.

 

I cry my tears

But they not for you

Playing a game

I know you've done too

I shouldn't have waited,

But still it is all the same

Because you know,

I'm just playing my game.

 

Don't hold me with your eyes

The light in them I cannot see,

No need to blind me

There's this darkness where I walk

You thought you had your future

All figured out.

 

I cry my tears

But they're not for you

Playing a game

I know you've done too

I shouldn't have waited,

But still it is all the same

Cause you know,

I'm just playing my game,

I'm playing my game.

 

 

The Way We Are

Lene Marlin - 05.10.1999

 

I watch you growing sometimes I see

 myself - in you

It can be scary but kinda funny too

I hear you talking

A lot of similarities

Your choice of words

And all the fantasises

 

Just the way we are

I guess you've seen it now

A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird

Falling down

From a mountain of frights

What's there to hold on to?

 

The way you makes all smile and

 the despair when you just

Won't go to sleep

You could have me walking a mile to

 make you smile still it's not

Really a weep

I know you fooled me

A million times

I just can't help it

Don't know why

 

Just the way we are

I guess you've seen it now

A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird

Falling down from a mountain of frights

What's there to hold on to?

 

I know you hate it but they really have to do

hat they do

You're crying out your wishes I understand

Yet they don't have a clue.

 

 

 

Maybe I´ll Go

Lene Marlin - 05.10.1999

 

You think you've made it everything's going so fine

But then appears someone who wanna

Tear you down

Wanna rip you off those few nice things you've found

When and if you hit the ground.

Then it's falling kinda hard

Cause all you do is being yourself

Trying everything to succeed somehow.

But that's not the way things are right now.

Feeling kinda lost.

 

Those reasons

Those unkind words being expressed

Oh… they'll get to you I promise one day.

But maybe then it's too late for you to say

I knew it from the go cause you know

That's some miles away from the truth.

Don't forget

 

Hey what do you think of me now

Am I not like I once were

Still if you don't know me

What's the story of this pen*

I guess you're not a stranger

And I can tell you're not a friend

It might take a while but I guess you'll manage waiting till then.

Then when you confront me with your thought

 

You may think I don't notice don't get a bit hurt by what you do

I ask you to please think of

What I've done to you.

Please search inside and let me know

If I've done something wrong I guess I'll go

Far hidden

Never to be found

 
 

One Year Ago

Lene Marlin - 10.05.1999

 

She's walking there alone,

No one by her side

She manages to fight the tears, but

The pain inside

She can't hide

And all the tears she's cried

The moment she closes her eyes, she starts

Thinking of you

The dreams that she had one time

Have gone away

Will they ever come true?

All she needs is… all she needs is you

 

And she wishes today

Was one year ago

When you cared so much for her

And loved her so

Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you

Cause the love that you shared… it was true

 

You never thought about it,

What you made her feel

You promised you'd stay together,

But the hope she once had… so unreal

All she needs is… all she needs is you

 

 

And she wishes today

Was one year ago

When you cared so much for her

And loved her so

Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you

Cause the love that you shared… it was true

 

 

Unforgivable Sinner

Lene Marlin - 05.10.1999

 

 Kinda lose your sense of time

'Cause the days don't matter no more

All the feelings that you hide

Gonna tear you up inside

You hope she knows you tried

 

Follows you around all day

And you wake up soaking wet

'Cause between this world and eternity

There is a face you hope to see

 

You know where you've sent her

You sure know where you are

You're trying to ease off

But you know you won't get far

And now she's up there

Sings like an angel

But you can't hear those words

And now she's up there

Sings like an angel

Unforgivable Sinner

 

You've been walking around in tears

No answers are there to get

You won't ever be the same

Someone cries and you're to blame

 

Struggling with a fight inside

Sorrow you'll defeat

The picture you see it won't disappear

Not unpleasant dreams or her voice you hear

 

You know where you've sent her

You sure know where you are

You're trying to ease off

But you know you won't get far

And now she's up there

Sings like an angel

But you can't hear those words

And now she's up there

Sings like an angel

Unforgivable Sinner

 

Maybe one time lost

But now you're found

Stand right up before

You hit the ground

Maybe one time lost

But now you're found

Stand right up before

You hit the ground - hit the ground

 

You know where you've sent her

You sure know where you are

You're trying to ease off

But you know you won't get far

And now she's up there

Sings like an angel

But you can't hear those words

And now she's up there

Sings like an angel

Unforgivable Sinner

 

 

Flown Away

Lene Marlin - 10.05.1999

 

I've flown too high on borrowed wings

Beyond the clouds and where the angels sings

In a sky containing no one but me

Up there's all empty and down there's the sea

No one here but me

There's nothing but light

That comes into sight

 

There's something up here that makes me wince

And I still got the feelings that I've felt ever since

I got to this place arrived at last

In front there's the future right back there's the past

Everything's moving so fast

 

There's nothing but light that comes into sight

The present like I've never seen it before

Is this the right place to stay

Please my wings fly me away.

 

So I See

Lene Marlin - 05.10.1999

 

So I see it, it's right there in front of me

What's a matter, oh you cannot see

Feeling like I did when you blindfolded me

So I hear it, for a brief moment there I thought I knew

All these things they were far, far from true

But I guess you cannot hide from the truth.

 

So I see right through you

And I know what you've been up to

So I see right through you

And I know the things you do.

 

So I see it, it's right there in front of me.

Oh, I'm sorry,

You did not wanna see

Acting like I did when you betrayed me

So I hear it, they didn't have to scream it in my head

They just could have whispered it instead

Cause I am already over it now.

 

So I see right through you

And I know what you've been up to

So I see right through you

And I know the things you do.

 

 

Where I'm Headed

Lene Marlin - 05/10-99

 

  I've got a suitcase in my hand

Filled with stuff most precious to me

Sidewalk brings my feet

Wherever they're headed.

There is no directions given

Just some trust in human mind to rely on

And to hold on to.

Honestly don't know where I'll end up at last

Won't even count the days.

One thing I sure know I won't move so fast

My mind in complete haze.

 

I pass by

Don't dare to stop

When there's someone I see

There's no one here but me

I'm fooled by something inside my head.

If I lay down now

I might seem kinda dead

Just keep on wasting time.

 

Scary thoughts and frightening sounds

In my mind still I try avoid it

Heading through this hope not one-way alley

I can't really sense my surroundings

Seems to be all dark around.

Nothing there, to lighten up my way.

Honestly don't know where I'll end up at last

Won't even count the days.

One thing I sure know I won't move so fast.

My mind is complete haze.

 

I pass by

Don't dare to stop

When there's someone I see

There's no one here but me

I'm fooled by something inside my head

If I lay down now

I might seem kinda dead

Just keep on wasting time.

 

I walk slow in secret

Listening to the sound of steps.

Imagination seems to go all crazy

I've got all the time I need

Wanna dream fulfil my wishes.

Like this future already now been entered

 

I pass by

Don't dare to stop

When there's someone I see

There's no one here but me

 

I'm fooled by something inside my head.

If I lay down now

I might seem kinda dead

Just keep on wasting time.

 

 

 

A Place Nearby

Lene Marlin - 10.05.1999

  I entered the room

Sat by your bed all through the night

I watched your daily fight

I hardly knew

The pain was almost more than I could bear

And still I hear

Your last words to me.

 

Heaven is a place nearby

So I won't be so far away.

And if you try and look for me

Maybe you'll find me someday.

Heaven is a place nearby

So there's no need to say goodbye

I wanna ask you not to cry

I'll always be by your side.

 

You just faded away

You spread your wings you had flown

Away to something unknown

Wish I could bring you back.

You're always on my mind

About to tear myself apart.

You have your special place in my heart.

 

Always heaven is a place nearby

So I won't be so far away.

And if you try and look for me

Maybe you'll find me someday.

Heaven is a place nearby

So there's no need to say goodbye

I wanna ask you not to cry

I'll always be by your side.

 

And even when I go to sleep

I still can hear your voice

And those words

I never will forget
