about

The Cold Blows was recorded live in four sessions at three locations: Dworek Białoprądnicki, Kraków and Radio Gdansk in Poland & the University of Stavanger in Norway. The songs were composed during this period and arranged for piano and drums by Annalie and Szymon. The instrumental tracks were spontaneous improvisations.

Track Name: Fire
you put a fire in me
you put a fire in my heart
you put a fire in me
right from the start
a heart like mine
isn’t easy to find
you put a fire in my heart
don’t leave it behind
feel it when you’re cold
feel it til your bones grow old
you put in fire in me
you built this fire in my heart
you put a fire in me
right from the start
pure pure love
is sent from heaven above
you put a fire in my heart
would you tear me apart
your hands on my skin
your eyes tell me everything
silver pours from your mouth
and i can’t get enough
i can’t get out
you put a fire in me
will you just let it be?
or will you feed it somehow
i need your touch
i feel it now
you and i
under the same misty sky
you have always been mine
across the seas of space and time
you fill me
with a voice deeper than the blackest sea
love is all that i am
and all of it is yours
take it from me
you put a fire in me
everybody can see
you put a fire in my heart
you put a fire in my heart
you put a fire in my heart
you put a fire in my heart
for once there is no doubt
you put a fire my heart
don’t let it go out
Track Name: Autumn Song
Summer’s gone and the light grows long
In the dark and the deep I wish I could sleep
But I’m dreaming dry
So far gone
And I wonder why it all went wrong
And I feel for you
Do you feel for me too

You were mad and I was strange
And now the seasons change
You’re a star and I’m the moon
Wishing I could see you soon
But when I do you’ll hide your light
Behind a cloud
Won’t you play that tune again
And play it loud
Cos I feel for you
Do you feel for me too

Shadows fall and the leaves follow fast
What’s done is past
Love alone can last
Without hope
Without fear
It’s here

We had fire and we had blood
I met you in the flood
And you met me there too
For a week or too
And now the war is done
It’s back to the sun
If you need a friend just shout
I’ll hear you out
Cos I feel for you
Don’t you ever feel blue
I’m here for you
When you feel blue
Track Name: Come Over Tonight
Come over tonight
Bring your weapons
Bring your rage
I can hold them all
Come over tonight
Bring your fire
Bring your hate
I can hold it all
Bring yourself
The parts you cannot love
I will kiss them

Come over tonight
Bring your body
Bring your mind
I can hold them all
Come over tonight
Bring your chaos
Bring your fear
I will touch it

Bring your heart
The tender and the hard
No matter who you are
I’ll be there for you
All of you
All of me
No past no future
Come over tonight
We can lie outside
Under the stars
In the dark and cold
And feel it all
Just as it is
Track Name: When Love Comes
We came down from the stars
We grew bones and we grew hearts
And we changed our faces
But we kept the burning parts
And we sailed far and wide
To find something on the inside
And the places where we burned
Were the places where we learned

When love comes
When love come
Don’t throw it away
When love comes
When love comes
All you have to do is stay

We were lost for a while
Til we found each other’s smile
And we wandered through cloud
And we poured ourselves out loud
And you opened so wide
Couldn’t sleep by you all night
And the nerves of you
The curves of you
Still smouldering with starlight

When love comes
When love come
Don’t throw it away
When love comes
When love comes
All you have to do is stay

In this light we were born
To the aching of the storm
And the cold kissed us
And told us that our truth
Would always keep us warm

When love comes
When love come
Don’t throw it away
When love comes
When love comes
All you have to do is stay
Track Name: Breath
Breath in motion
In and out
Is birth and death
An ocean
Of fear and doubt

Breathe slowly now you know the way
Is hard to see
It’s only life and therein lies the mystery

Light comes streaming
This dreaming’s done
My eyes are open
And I saw the sun

Breathe slowly now you know the way
Is hard to see
It’s only life and therein lies the mystery

Brain keeps thinking
No time to spare
The world is shrinking
And I need air

Breathe slowly now you know the way
Is hard to see
It’s only life and therein lies the mystery
Track Name: Woodpecker
You say you don’t want me
Well I don’t want to force you to be here
It was magic
Yeah we had it all
But you don’t wanna face that fear

And I love you
But it’s none of your damn business anyway
Just thought I’d say
And I got nothing to do that has any meaning
What is true comes streaming through
With feeling
Feels like passion went out of fashion
So I might as well cash in my chips
I’m a fireball I can’t hide it
I know what I want
And then sometimes it flips

But I love you
And that used to count for something
In the books that I read
And if nothing is sacred you’re only living in your head

You call me by my name
You call me to myself
You take me as I am
You wanna let this go but I am so tired of no

So you built your wall
You’re safe from it all
I can’t reach you in there
But there’s nothing holding together the stones
It’s just gravity and air

And I love this
I love the feeling that I went to somewhere new with you
And there’s left to do any more
What is true comes screaming through

You call me by my name
You call me to myself
You take me as I am
You wanna let this go but I am so tired of no
Track Name: Skin
I’m shedding my skin
For the first time
I feel ready to begin
Unravelling
I paint it all black
Ought to know by now that the hardest attack
Is the one from within
But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to feel it
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside
Give up all hope
It's always been
The tightest rope
That reels you in
You set yourself up
Nothing's right
And nothing's ever enough
So you keep digging
But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to feel it
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside
Get it all out
You can dance
And you can sing and shout
But don't stop giving
It's so easy to crawl
Under the bottomless sea
While the world goes on living
But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to breathe in
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside
Track Name: You Broke My Heart
How can you speak of love now
It’s too late to start
You broke my heart
How come you smell so good now
How come I want you more
You let me down
What for

Was it worth the pain you caused me
Was she all that I lack
All the time you were loving her
I was waiting for you to come back

How come the sun’s still shining
You left me in the dark
You told me lies
And broke my heart
But this desire is all new
And my nerves are raw
You call my name
Louder than before

Was it worth the pain you caused me
Was she so special
All the time you were loving her
I was feeling myself fall

And yet you speak of love now
How can you be sure
You broke my heart
How can I give you more

Was it worth the pain you caused me
Was she all that I lack
All the time you were loving her
I was waiting for you to come back
Track Name: Snow
Little signs of life come from the ground
It’s so peaceful and calm
Weather man says it’s gonna be a cold front
We should stay home til it’s done
But it only snows in January now
Long time ago it used to snow all year round

Little birds shiver on bare trees
They don’t sing they just hold their sad hearts
Another year begins and we are in the dark
What do we bring
Where do we start
And it only snows in January now
Long time ago it used to snow all year round

In a little time it’s all going
With a little faith it’s all growing
In a little time it’s all growing

Little rays of light come from the clouds
We just stand outside and open our mouths
You and I are all it takes
It’s the best time to make new mistakes
Cos it only snows in January now
And snow will come and white the darkness out
