lyrics

Many were the nights I stayed with you
when I should've been going home
Many were the days you promised me
Still I ended up alone

I believed the words you spoke to me
even though I saw their emptiness
I thought that if I waited long enough
they’d finally match your sweet caress

Let the day clear our deeds
as our souls forgiveness plead
Put my heart in shallow ground
till the right one can be found

I sailed this boat an ocean wide for you
to see what you’d been looking for
But there was nothing on the other side
And nowhere to call home no more

Let the day clear our deeds
as our souls forgiveness plead
Put my heart in shallow ground
till the right one can be found
Let the sun dry our tears
soften grief throughout the years
Here I stand on solid ground
Dusty heart and empty hand

Many were the nights I blamed myself
nothing I could do to make amends
But there was nothing I could save you from
I leave with dusty heart and empty hand

Let the day clear our deeds
as our souls forgiveness plead
Put my heart in shallow ground
till the right one can be found
Let the sun dry our tears
soften grief throughout the years
Here I stand on solid ground
Dusty heart and empty hand

about

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk. She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
