A Beginning, a Detour, an Open Ending

Tina Dickow hører til en af de danske musikere jeg holder allermest af at lytte til. Hendes melankolske tekster og smukke stemme går rent ind. I lighed med de tidligere albums, skal dette nye, “A beginning, a Detour, an Open Ending”, også “fordøjes” – det skal høres på iPoden i fred og ro, og mere end én gang, men så er det tilgengæld heller musik jeg nogensinde bliver træt af.

Det er desværre aldrig lykkedes mig at høre hende live – et stort ønske for fremtiden!

Get to know you
I didn’t come to solve a case
To step in someone else’s place
To mold you in to someone else
To save you from yourself

I didn’t come to steal your thoughts
To analyze you, find your faults
I didn’t come to change your mind
And turn your eyes blind

I’ve never picked your brains for any answers
There’s nothing here I feel we need to solve
I’ve never pushed to break through your defences
That’s not why I’m here with you at all

Stranger, I just came to get to know you
Just to sit next to you for a bit
Stranger, I just came to get to know you
Wouldn’t it be a shame if I never did?

I didn’t come to change your past
To cut us in to equal halves
To mold you in to someone new
Who thinks like I do

I didn’t come to take control
To eat your heart out, kill your soul
I didn’t come to change your mind
And turn your eyes blind

I’ve never asked you questions ’bout tomorrow
Here and now is where I wanna stay
I’ve given you no rules or roads to follow
That’s not why I’m sitting here today

Stranger, I just came to get to know you
Just to sit next to you for a bit
Stranger, I just came to get to know you
Wouldn’t it be a shame if I never did?
