Liberty

Dårhuset Demo, 23 April 1995

Liberty for everybody
Liberty for everyone
Following a higher notion
Liberty for each and everyone

Liberty for everyone
Liberty for everyone

Peace of mind is what you’re after
Peace of mind is what you need
Peace of mind is what you hunger
Lakes and valleys, birds and trees, the sun

Liberté pour tout le monde
Liberty for everyone

Oh my love, don’t you cry
Oh sweet child of mine, don’t you cry

Strange, it seems like you and me
are floating free against the world
Sometimes I feel the energy
of you and me against the whole wide world

Liberty for everyone
Liberty for everyone

Oh my love, don’t you cry
Sweet sweet child of mine, don’t you cry

Liberty for everyone
Liberty for everyone

Strange, it seems it’s you and me
You and me against the world

Per: This song was written for Belinda Carlisle but she and her A&R-staff in London didn’t like it very much. But they wanted me to be involved with her album A Woman and a Man. So she recorded “Always Breaking My Heart” (Top 8 in the UK!!) + “Love Doesn’t Live Here” instead. “Always Breaking My Heart” I co-prodcued, “Love Doesn’t Live Here” was done by somebody else in LA I think… The “Liberty”-demo was the first song ever to be recorded at my brand new studio in Stockholm together with highly talented programmer Anders Herrlin and Dr Clair Ubermensch who was spreading his tastebuds all over the place. Great fun.
