Although I wait for most things anxiously, after playing out Peter von Poehl‘s 2006 album “Going to Where the Tea-Trees Are”, I am “anxiously awaiting” his new release.

The only information regarding the release of his second album can be found in the following un-dated post from his website (when exactly is the “Swedish spring”?), where you can also preview a new song from May Day.  I hope he runs out of money soon so I can buy his new album.

Dear All,

Swedish spring seems to have finally started to get its act together. I’m enjoying my mid day coffee break at my favourite studio: AGM. A day like today with the sun in my eyes (making the typing a bit difficult though) i can’t really complain.

I’m roughly half way through my new record, going under the working title “MAY DAY”. Soon i’ll be running out of money – and conveniently – that’s when this album will be finished. I thought i should give you a glimpse of what’s going on. Here is a demo of a song called ‘Near the end of the world‘. Sorry about the sound quality, but it should give you an idea…

Here’s a favorite from his first album:
Peter Von Poehl – The Story Of The Impossible from Going to Where the Tea-Trees Are, 2006

Official Video: The Story of the Impossible

Peter von Poehl – The Story Of The Impossible Lyrics
Whatever happened to the great escape?
The finest enemy.
Crafted with pride by monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers.
We have the story of the impossible.
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief.
Maybe impossible to achieve.
And really close.
Who sew the lion’s hungry in the cage?
With the confidence of a clown.
The little man who rises on the stage,
as he falls without a safety net.
We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief.
Maybe impossible to achieve,
but oh so close.

M. Ward – Poison Cup Lyrics
One.
One.
One.
One or two won’t do.
‘Cause I want it all.
And a sip.
A sip.
A sip or a spoonful won’t do.
No, I want it all.
And I hope.
I hope.
Hope you know what I’m thinking of.
I want all of your love.
I need all of your love.
She said if love.
If love.
Is a poison cup.
Then drink it up.
Cause a sip.
A sip.
Or a spoonful won’t do.
Won’t do nothing for you.
Except mess you up.

And I hope.
I hope.
Hope you know what this means.
I’m gonna give you everything.
I’m gonna give you everything.

But I’m a head case if I don’t keep moving, and my head hurts if I don’t sit still. It’s an itch that I never stop scratching. It’s a hole that I never quite fill.

Electric President – Insomnia
from Electric President, 2006

Electric President – Insomnia Lyrics
There’s a light bulb dangling from string,
it’s slowly swaying up over my head now.
As I jot down the words that’ll never be sung,
and wait for my headache to numb.
And the wind sounds as if the world’s sighing,
and the moon’s just a torn fingernail,
as the TV flickers and hums by the wall,
and I wait for my eyesight to fade.

So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.
So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.

While the bright eyed choke on ambition,
and the old folks circle their graves.
And the young ones are busy destroying their names,
and you’re still just wasting away.
I sit and watch the screen for a message,
some kinda sign that says we’re okay.
But the screen stays blank til I turn the thing off,
and wait for my conscience to break.

So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.
So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.

And I hope you’re learning to listen.
And I hope you’re learning to stay.
And I hope you find what you’re missing.
And I hope that you’re making you’re way.
But I’m a head case if I don’t keep moving,
and my head hurts if I don’t sit still.
It’s an itch that I never stop scratching.
It’s a hole that I never quite fill.

So

Remix, 2006

Cagedbaby – Hello There Lyrics
I watched you breathing as the night it slips away.
I get the feeling that you’re planning not to stay.
But you’re the only one, the only one I love.
There’s no deceiving you were dancing from above.

I came and saw you on the corner of delight,
the way you flicked your hair upon the pale moonlight.
You came and spoke to me and put me to the test.
Oh don’t you realize that I’m better than the rest.
Give me a reason not to feel this way was true,
I would have waited here forever to see you, oh yeah.

Give me a reason to stop playing in the rain.
I watched you breathing and I felt your every pain.
I saw your face as it got swallowed by the light.
And you’re my only one, my only one delight.
And when you sleep talk, yeah I write the things you say.
And I interpret that you wanted me to stay.

Give me a reason to stop playing with your heart.
You’ve got to feel it, got to feel it from the start.
You’ve got to feel it, got to feel it from the start.
You’ve got to feel it, got to feel it from your heart.

I watch my dreams they tumble down, they tumble down.
I have no feeling, have no memory now.
Stop playing with my heart, stop playing with my heart…

Girl the night’s not over, we’re not getting older. They can chase forever, ’cause in the morning there’s a million names to choose from.

Junior Boys – In The Morning Lyrics
Girl the night’s not over,
we’re not getting older .
They can chase forever,
’cause in the morning there’s a million names to choose from.
You don’t care just take one.
Leave a place to rest on,
because you’re too young.

Yeah you’re too young,
Oh you’re too young,
You’re too young.

There goes another million,
Just wrap it up we own it
This night’s a skill we hone it
And in the morning would you tell me that it’s over?
You think that you’d do better,
to stick with someone older.
Because we’re too young.

Too young.
Yeah, we’re too young in the morning.
We’re too young,
we’re too young in the morning.
