Young As The Morning, Old as The Sea

Young as the Morning, Old as The Sea


I wanna lay by a lake in Norway, I
I wanna walk through Swedish fields of green
I wanna see the forests of Finland, I
I wanna sail on a boat on the Baltic sea

I wanna fell the rushing winter, I
I wanna go to my Polish grandmother’s home
I wanna see Hungarian lanterns, I
I wanna woke on a road that leads to Rome

I wanna be free as the winds that blow past me
Clear as the air that I breath
Young as the morning
And old as the sea

I wanna lose myself in the Scottish highlands
the west coast of Ireland
the Cornish breeze

I wanna rest my bones in the Spanish sunshine
the Italian coastline is calling me
to be free as the birds that fly past me
light as the fish in the sea
to be wise as the mountains
and tall as the trees

I wanna be sunny and bright as a sunrise
happy and full as the moon
I’m flinching like fireworks fading too soon

~ Young as the Morning Old as the Sea, Passenger (Mike Rosenberg)

Whispers


Mike Rosenberg, 29, was born in Brighton, England.  He is better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English folk-rock singer-songwriter. Rosenberg learned classical guitar when he was young: ” My parents were really encouraging about music so that sort of started the path. When I was about 14-15, I started to write songs, which were absolutely dreadful. But as I kept going the songs became better and better – it was just so bloody obvious that this was what I wanted to do. I never really applied myself in school and music was the only thing I wanted to spend my time doing…I’m heavily influenced by Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Neil Young although I’m nowhere near as good as those guys!”

Friday Night: Passenger


Mike Rosenberg, 29, was born in Brighton, England.  He is better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English folk-rock singer-songwriter. His nickname comes from the folk-rock band of which he was the founder, main vocalist and songwriter, and which released just one album. When the members of the band chose to go their own separate ways in 2009, Rosenberg opted to keep the band’s name for his solo work. His most successful single “Let Her Go” has topped the charts in 16 countries so far.
