youtu.be/8Dt3-1la9ug

recorded live in january 2018, at Fivelstads kyrka, Sweden.

returning to her childhood home of Fivelstad’s community church accompanied by her iamamiwhoami colleague Claes Björklund on organ. the same place where ionnalee began to master singing and playing piano. “there were no instruments in my home and no places to hang out living in the middle of nowhere. i was allowed to exercise my singing in church, so this is where it all began for me”.

lyrics

as far as the eye can see
the wastelands i call my home
returning for the thrill
where my silence is silver
my noise is gold

the lightest dunes of sand
are mountains, i let them grow
standing on my two hands
under your control

i saw it, it was real
a place for us to start a home
i’m going in for the kill
my silence is silver
so i’ve been told

the lightest dunes of sand
are mountains, i let them grow
standing on my two hands
under your control

the lightest dunes of sand
won’t let me raise my voice
stranded on dried up land
flooded and overgrown

the lightest dunes of sand
are mountains, i watch them grow
standing on my two hands
under your control

the lightest dunes of sand
won’t let me raise my voice
stranded on dried up land
flooded and overgrown
