Captured in ZOO

ROCK & lOVE STORY

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 2:33

Heavy – loaded woman
coming down on him strong – he’s in love
Riding with his woman
feeling something is wrong – he’s in love

Refr.:
They’re both trying to hide it,
though actually they’re actors on the same stage
They’re both living with it,
though they’re following the lines from the same page

Meeting after schooltime,
telling jokes of how he snored last night
Looking at his woman
saying: What are you doing tonight, she says: might

Refr.:

She’s looking at him – he’s looking at her
and everyday he promises to tell her for sure
She’s walking away – he asks her to stay
two more minutes, an hour, a day

Rocking and loving,
living one day at the time on a lie
Talking of the future
walking with her till she says goodbye

Refr.:

LADY YES & NO

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 3:31

The queen of my dreams,
on the scene in my dreams –
Acting Lady Yes, telling me No
The love in her eyes,
I’m trowing a dice –
Rolling out of sight, making me low

Refr.:
Lady Yes and No – teasing my heart
Lady Yes and No – walking down my path
Putting me on – then rejecting my love
Lady Yes and No

Black haired Lady
Yes, No, Maybe
Moving on like a queen without a crown
Someday I’ll know you – yes
Someday I’ll love you
I’m a king, take a seat on my throne

Refr.:
Lady Yes and no…. etc.

You stand there smiling
I don’t know if you’re lieing –
Looking through my soul, whispering hello
Friendship and Love
Hardship and No –
Lady Yes and No, stop telling me No

Refr.:
Lady Yes and no…. etc..

A REVELATION

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 4:10

Ready, to hear my conclusion?
Hear me all about that fusion.
An image of my mind has come to me in time
As if through a dime, I see clearly my crime

Surely, I was given a solution
See me, free from confusion
Sippin’ the wine – livin’ just fine
Usin’ my time – got a place in the line

Hear me, see me, leave me – in the line
Hear me, see me, leave me – I’m just fine

Maybe, I’m a-gonna loose my mission
Leave me, it’s time to make a decision
If I do it in vain, you can call me insane
it’s distrubin’ my brain, and it might cause me pain

Really, I’ve seen through your illusion
Loose me, it’s my own execution
You all gave me life – you offered me a wife
And still in night – you were wrong, I was right

Hear me, see me, leave me – in the line
Hear me, see me, leave me – I’m just fine

WHO ARE YOU

Ready, to hear my conclusion?
Hear me all about that fusion.
An image of my mind has come to me in time
As if through a dime, I see clearly my crime

See me, free from confusion
Sippin’ the wine – livin’ just fine
Usin’ my time – got a place in the line

Hear me, see me, leave me – in the line
Hear me, see me, leave me – I’m just fine

Maybe, I’m a-gonna loose my mission
Leave me, it’s time to make a decision
If I do it in vain, you can call me insane
it’s distrubin’ my brain, and it might cause me pain

Really, I’ve seen through your illusion

Hear me, see me, leave me – I’m just fine

I DID IT FOR YOUR LOVE

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 2:47

I packed down a pair of shirts and jeans and new clean underwear
And went down to the bus-station, bought a ticket to any where
I know you had the right to know the reason why and where
Well, I did it for your love, baby, I did it for my soul

Refr.:
I didn’t want to hurt you, I was tryin’ to save us both
From living in a dream we never had
Makin’ love was easy, at night we’d last forever
But days would have to come

Down the road I’m lookin’ back on promises I made
’cause everyday is more and more like wearing an old gown
There’s so much of life to learn from in the nearest town
And I need it for your love, baby, I need it for my soul

Refr.:

I know if I return that you’ll be waiting in the door
To ask me all those questions that I couldn’t take no more
And maybe we can get together once more like before
And do it for your love, baby, Yes do it for my soul

Refr.:

CAPTURED IN ZOO

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 4:20

Refr.:
Captured in Zoo, captured in Zoo
No way out, ’cause I’m captured in Zoo

Just listen to the savage and castrated lions moan
A forgettable occurrence, the amusement of the town
Locked in a cage, and noted on a page
A filed piece of freedom, a canned piece of rage

Refr.:

The velvet curtain rises, the show is going on
A forgettable occurrence in a R&R town
Locked in a cage, and cut off on the stage
I’m caught in the act, a canned piece of rage

Refr.:

LILY OF THE STREET

Mel.: Rolf Løvland/Tekst: Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 4:06

As I was strolling down the street with no name
A woman’s voice was calling: «Man, what’s your game»
And as I turned t o tell her mine was the same
She whispered in my ear: «You’re teasing a flame

Refr.:
Oh Lily, Lily of the street
You’ve got me kneeling at your feet
You’ve my kind –
I want you so bad I’m blind

I went there every night to take her away
But every time she said: «You don’t see me way»
I tried to make her understand it’s OK
But she went on to find a new place to stay

Refr.:

Hunting the sun – lookin’ for fun
Who knows why and where you run

I never really knew how hard it would be
For me to realize she had to be free
She kept on giving, but she wanted no fee
I was a happening in her chapter three

Refr.:

TRIVIAL WORDS OF LOVE

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 5:10

I found myself being filed,
among romantic novels of our time
I hardly recognized my style,
as I ended up a part of your rhyme
And I’ll never understand how you made it – cause:

Refr.:
You’re made me – a romanticist
You’ve played me – You’re an optimist
And I want you to be,
Yes I want you to see,
that I’m too much in love to see you go

I heard myself speak of love –
could it be that I’m old fashioned over you
I felt like flying high above –
call me trivial – for you, – call me trivial, cause that’s new,
And I’ll never understand how much you made it – cause:

Refr.:

Trivial words of love – I’ve fought them all these years
Trivial words of love – You’ve made me climb the stairs

I tried my best to concentrate –
on the things I thought were vital for my life
I felt too safe about the date –
It was friday, but somehow I held you tight
And I’ll never understand how you made it – cause:

Refr.:

ROCK & ROLL AWAY THE BLUES

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 3:00

You feel me when I’m comin’
You blame ’cause I’m roamin’
And I know it’s only me that melts from booze
You take me through your dreams
You confront me with your screams
Just give me one more night to play the blues

Refr.:
Rock & Roll away the blues
I’ve got to keep on payin’ my dues
Rock along with the news
I’ve got to get it out of my shoes

Conclude investigations
Stop lookin’ for sensation
I’ll give you anything you wanna blow
There’s no need to confuse me
To be able to acuse me
I’ll tell you anything you wanna know

Refr.:

What’s that you’re hidin’
Look where you’re ridin’
Makin’ love is not just a game
Listen for a while
Listen with a smile
I’d like to give you more than my name

You act as if you’re blind
But I’ve been within your mind
And I know t hat we can make it somehow
Set yourself free, baby –
Do it with me –
I’m telling you – the right time is now

Refr.:

GUILTY

Tekst/Mel. Ketil Stokkan
Spilletid: 3:25

The days are long, babe – the feeling is strong
And words are so hard to find
Whatever I said must be somethin` I read
`Cause yesterday`s out of my mind

Refr.:
And I`m GUILTY – of telling you lies
Yes I`m GUILTY – of hiding goodbyes
I don`t think it`s right, but I don`t want a fight
So give me a chance `till tomorrow

The nights were cold, and the secret is old
I couldn`t make it alone
You say it ain`t fair, but you`ll always be there
And I´m better off on my own

Refr.:
And I`m GUILTY – etc..

You call out my name – but I`m trapped in a game
And I can`t help my feelings these days
You feel you`ve been used, but I`ve kept you amused
And loved you in so many ways

Refr.:
Still I`m GUILTY – etc..

HEAD & TAIL

Tekst/Mel. Sverri Dahl
Spilletid: 4:05

When you were young you were the little one
They liked to hear you sing your song
You were running around and chasing your tail
You were too young to think you`d ever fail

You thought you knew what they wanted from you
And you did what you felt was the right thing to do
You started climbing ladders the way you were told
You didn`t know you were growing old

Refr.:
Heads you win and tails you loose
Makes no difference which one you choose
But if Lady luck is with you, then you`re coming along
Everybody`s interested in buying your song

The days on the top, you`ve left them behind
And the climax you searched for was too hard to find
The fans you had have all run away
Another star – Another play

Refr.:
Heads you win – etc..

When you were young you were the little one
They liked to hear you sing your song
You were running around and chasing your tail
You were too young to think you`d ever fail

Refr.:
Heads you win and tails you loose
Makes no difference which one you choose
Cause when you reach your station
you`ve been travelling too long
There`s nobody waiting there to hear your song

MY LOVE FOR YOU WAS STRONG
