about

We wanted to include a cover on the album and as soon as we heard this song by Christian Kjellvander, we knew it was the one. The lyrics paint a picture not only of travelling, but of time and distance and how we relate to the world outside and within us. And the music… The craftsmanship is just brilliant.

lyrics

(Music & lyrics by Christian Kjellvander)

I never wanted it to end
This m/s can roll and is built by steel that bends
Under a million star sky
The bow wind brought more than tears to my eyes

And we all have ways of dealing with this pace
Now the nights are simply transports for the days

I’m transatlantic...for a while

Goodbye to you, fair Canada
The St Lawrence slowly fades beneath my sleep
And like a thousand burning hells
I will cleanse my soul with mid-atlantic swells

And one can get addicted to this pace
Sometimes it seems like it’s all about getting away

I’m transatlantic...for a while
