Kun det gode

Kun det gode – Only The Good by Mette Kirkegaard

Its been a while since I recorded this song in a cheap hotel room.

Costa Blanca toget

KUN DET GODE

Det var så mørkt og trist
Og der kom du
Gik ind ad den dør
Så den aske

Det var den tid
Du så mine tårer falde
Kunne Intet miste
Sådan blev det

Du lærte mig at turde
Du viste mig at jeg kunne
Igen
Turde tabe
Til livet
endnu
en god ven

Jeg kendte den du var
Og på det skal du kendes
De sorte stunder
forsvinder i din last

Du lærte mig at turde
Du viste mig at jeg kunne
Igen
Turde tabe
Til livet
endnu
en god ven

Jeg mindes
Kun det gode
Der står jeg bedst
Alt må brændes
Al Mørkets rest

Jeg mindes kun det gode
Der står jeg bedst
Nu du er gået
med gråden
Så står jeg fast

Du lærte mig at elske ven
For hjertet kan holde til det meste
Lyset har åbnet op igen
Du lod os briste

Du lærte mig at turde
Du viste mig at jeg kunne
Igen
Turde tabe
Til livet
endnu
en god ven

Jeg mindes
Kun det gode
Der står jeg bedst
Jeg mindes
Kun det gode
Der står jeg bedst

ONLY THE GOOD

Costa Blanca Train

 

It was dark and dreary

And there you came

Walked thru that door

Saw the ashes

 

It was the time

You saw my tears falling

Couldn’t lose nomore

Such was I mourning

 

You taught me to dare

You showed me I could love again

Dare to losing to life

Yet another good friend

 

I knew you as you’ve been

And for this you shall be known

your dark moments disappear

on them I wont dwell

 

I will recall the good

This is where I stand

everything else needs to burn

and rest in darkness

 

I will recall the good

This is where I stand

Now you have left with the tears

Ill stand firm

 

You taught me to love, my friend

a heart endures and awakes

Light opens op again

You let us break

 

You taught me to dare

You showed me I could love again

Dare to losing to life

Yet another good friend

 

I will recall the good

This is where I stand

I will recall the good

This is where I stand
