Okey, this week I've been working on a lovesong. My first, ever!
Again, I blame this on my lack of words..😅 but that's not entirely true.
If we can talk about love for a moment..
Love to me is the greatest force in the universe. I truly belive that love can conqure everything.
But where there is love, I also think there has to be a few important elements present, otherwise the love will end up dying.
Where there is love I think there has to be :
1.accept; for us to be different and for needing different things
2. air; so the love can breeth and grow, if there's no air, one will suffocate and the love will die
3. independence; you can not make the other person your whole life; feed interests, hobbies and whatever make you happy
3. support; without the other persons support, the love you have for him/her as well as the love you have for yourself,
silently will become smaller and smaller, and at the end; die
It's easy to be in a relationship when everything in your life is A-Okay. It's not so easy to be in a relationship when you feel
that you are falling apart. How do you know that the other person will love you anyway? With all your faults out in the open.
How do you know that he/she will be strong when you are weak? How do you know that he/she will love you through all that's hard
and still love you when things are getting better?
I've written a lovesong for the first time in my life. I'm going through some things in my life that's hard, and maybe I needed that
to get something to really write about. The song is called " Elsk Meg!" ( Love Me! ) and is a prayer for my lover to
love me through all that's ugly, bad, dissapointing, weak, and hard.
I'm still working on the lyrics and hopefully this song will be used in a concert with vocals.
One of my favourite lovestorys that I've been so lucky to observe not too far away from it's core, are some friends of mine.
They have both been in unhappy relationsships before and both of them have had a lifetime of hurt in their young lives.
Then they met eachother. They are both strong individuals with a strong integrity, very independent and they both have big hearts.
Dispite all life has given them, bad and good, they don't stop believing in love. Even if it's hard, they have chosen to
give their hearts to eachother and got married yesterday. It's one of my favouritemoments in life so far. With a little baby
on the way, they complete their family and make it a family which include, love, support and cherish eachother.
To me, that's what's love is all about.
Do not give up on eachother.Give eachother space.Support eachother.
Today we celebrate love!
Have a wonderful day.
Halloween is over, sadly but true. And to me that means that autumn is in the past and winter is taking over,
and with that said, Christmas is on the way.
Today I got inspiration from this image. The light outside this morning, was amazing. So when i sat down at the piano,
I finally felt inspired.
I've always dreamed of writing a really good Christmas song, I guess like many musicians before me.
But the thought itself is terrifying. There are so many simple, beautiful and touching christmas songs, so why do the world need
another one? And why do we love the ones that we love? Is it because they are extremely well written songs,
are they catchy, or is it simply because it's tradition? If you listen to them every christmas you' ll start to love them?
Hmm.. My problem, I think, is that I write wordless music, so how do I know if I have written a christmas song?
Are there any rules that I don't know about? Like which chords I'm supposed to use? Instruments? If I add some bells,
will it then sound like Christmas ?
Today I've written a song which is, I think, inspired by the great norwegian composer and pianist; Bugge Wesseltoft's legendary album
" It' s snowing on my piano", which is a cheesy title for an album 😂 but it's a brilliant album and the title say something about
what expectations you as a listener can have to the music. And it makes it automatical a Christmas album.
So I guess that's what I' m supposed to do, find a good title that includes snow, winter, bells or simply Christmas😅
Have a great Day!
Lot's of Love
