  1. Beautiful Exile

From the recording Beautiful Exile

A friend of a friend challenged me to write a song about the impressions and experiences at a friend's cottage in the middle of nowhere (in Finland). As anticipated, the place was total bliss. The song is like an auditory photograph for me.


Beautiful Exile
Alright now, here we are
So far, so far...
From any city, street or bar
With our eyes upon the stars
When we go fishing from a boat
The lake is shimmering like gold
I take in the beauty that unfolds
No greater peacefulness I've ever known
This little cottage in the wild
Gets me excited like a child
Hardly believe I may reside
in such a beautiful exile
Sauna's ready, let's get in
Make me sweat just like a Finn
When we're done we'll take a swim
I guess my soul is growing wings
