To whom it may concern.
The following is in no way an attempt to re-create the Danish lyrics into English poetry, but just to give the reader/listener an idea of the different universes represented on the album ‘If this isn’t love’.
(Ebbe Rossander, translator)


If this isn’t love (Hvis det ikke er kærlighed)    
Lyrics: Jakob Eriksen
Music: Channe Nussbaum
Arr.: Stephan Grabowski


If this isn’t love
Well, does it matter
The lights are dimmed
And everything can happen

I smile and take your hand
Before the second last dance
Here we stand silent
Until the music starts

Chorus:
Uuh uh, for every note and beat
we get to dance
into the softest of nights

2.
And if this isn’t love
What do we care?
We are what we seem
A couple dancing

I lay my head against your chest
Where your heart is hidden
It beats so stubbornly
’Till the lights come on

Chorus
Uuh uh, for every note and beat … and nothing said

C-part:
Nothings has brought us together
So nothing can take us apart
Only chance will make us meet
in this godforsaken place

Chorus.
Uuh uh, for every note and beat … out in the darkest night

3.
If we never meet again
As if nothing had happened
We take what we need
The rest we forget.




Alone (Alene)    

Lyrics: Channe Nussbaum
Music: Channe Nussbaum
Arr.: Stephan Grabowski

There’s something about those who are alone, walk around alone
in tracks, on a
homemade trail
There are many of them, where I live

There’s something about those who live alone, and go home alone
what do they do with all
that precious time
What is their secret

Chorus:
Sometimes all goes well
The sun is shining, I know
The sky is high, the sea is blue – yes, I know

Something about those, who stand alone, singing solos in the quiet choir
Sleep in ‘till the day is over after a night as the lone wolf

Something about those who dare do it alone, dare to leave all to themselves
not really trusting others, much less themselves

Chorus:
Sometimes it goes well
Sun shining, I know
The sky is high, the sea is blue – yes, I know



Goodbye (Farvel)    

Lyrics: Channe Nussbaum
Music: Channe Nussbaum
Arr.: Stephan Grabowski

Don’t know why we’re together
don’t know why we’re here
Days that seem like each other
Nights where nothing happens

We sleep on separate floors
life has come to a halt
What once was ecstasy
has all disappeared

Chorus:
I can’t say goodbye
not go back on my word
to silence it is easier than you think
Look into myself, into the light of loneliness
to silence it is anybody’s choice

Flowers drowning in care
candles never lit
Words stuck in your throat



The Stars (Stjernerne)    

Lyrics: Danish traditional
Music: Channe Nussbaum
Arr.: Stephan Grabowski

Like the stars in the blue sky
they pair, two and two
So shall both you and I
stroll along this path

Remember what you promised me
when at the beach we sat
You promised you would be my friend
deceit was on your mind

Now I roam like the wild deer
that in the forest play
For father, mother I have not
or any friend on earth

Like the stars in the blue sky
they shine each for themselves
Goodbye, goodbye my friend
we may never meet again
