Shoreline
Anna Ternheim Lyrics


Ever since I was eight or nine
I've been standing on the shoreline
Always waiting
For something lasting
Loose your hunger, you loose your way
Get confused and you fade away

Oh this town
Kills you when you are young
Oh this town
Kills you when you are young

I'm not the boy I used to be
This town has got the youth of me
All eyes turn hollow
From the work of sorrow

Standing on the paving
By the office building
They've got so much to do
Never time for you

We are shadows
Oh we're shadows
Shadows in the alley

You die when you're young
You die when you're young
You die when you're young

Ever since I was eight or nine.
I've been standing on the shoreline
Always waiting for something lasting
Loose your hunger you loose your way
get confused and you fade away
Oh this town kills you when you're young
Oh this town kills you when you're young.
I'm not the boy I used to be
This town s' got the youth of me
All eyes turn hollow
From the work of sorrow
hmmmm hmmmm
hmmmm hmmmm
Standing on the paving
By the office building
They've got so much to do
Never time for you
We are shadows
we're shadows
shadows in the alley
You die when you're young
You die when you're young
You die when you're young
la la la lala la la lala la la la la

I met the girl who was meant for me when I was a small boy in Japan. I was swept into a canal during a monsoon and I would have drowned but a young Japanese girl dragged me out by my collar. She sat me on a wall above the water and waited with me until the rain stopped. She was selling pencils for her school and my mother had given me pocket money so I bought all her pencils. She took me home and I thanked her and all I remember was her beautiful face and wet, black hair. She waited by the gate while I went inside. I never knew her name or where she lived. This happened so long ago and so much has happened to me but now at the end of my days I remember her and think of her and I wonder what her life was like. I do not pray and I am not a believer but I pray she had a good life and found happiness and the light of Buddhas face shone upon her. I also hope she remembers me and finds pleasure in the good deed she did so long ago.

Melancholy and the infinite sadness

@Andreas Nilsson well, it was a girl in Japan so i dont think it's a fetisch 🙄

This touched me and brought a tear to my eye whilst listening to this song. I can relate to you as I almost lost my life and I have also have a guardian angel who saved me ❤️

Best thing is you can tell it's an old video. Notice how the crowd are actually standing and listening whereas if this was today everybody would be using their phones to record!!!!

We had this song played live on my cousins funeral. He died 28 years old. I miss him.

Dra åt Helvete

I also died about that time but we didn't have a funeral yet.

I used to shake and feel very emotive when I would hear this song some years ago. Now I don't feel anything special about it,. I am so happy that my heart has healed and I am no longer an energetic match to it. Thank you Anna for being with me in my hardest of times.
