about

Debut EP of the Swedish singer-songwriter HELGA.

PRESS:
"Sweden continues to churn the great singer-songwriters. The latest one to keep an eye on is HELGA." - The Revue

"Science has never successfully explained Magnetism. Science with your Big Bang theories, how cold and callous and ignorant to the human spirit. Speaking of Magnets and the human spirit! I am drawn to this artist Helga. She’s tapped into a natural feeling in me that time tried to make me to neglect. I hear in her, great things to come. She’s tuned into a place familiar to you, a shelf in your mind gathering dust where your dreams walk down a narrow stone spiral staircase with a candle to your heart." - Sir Master Lord of the Universe

" 'My Revelation' is full of individualism and promise, and contains a few tracks worthy of closer inspection. It undoubtedly has 'Nordic folk' at its core, but her wide range of influences push the music in a rock direction, and vocally it all has a slightly sad feel to it too. I like HELGA's approach, her style of music and the atmosphere she creates. Most of the tracks consider the subjects of mortality and nature, and that suits her style of music well." - Nordic Music Review

Track Name: Life Has Just Begun
Life has just begun and I see it run away from me
Oh life where will you go, why did you lead me here
Where will you lead me to

Here comes a man with a knife in his hand
Should I run and hide or smile and pretend
that everything's okay, no please don't
Please don't make me bleed


'Cause I'm not ready to leave this world behind
'Cause I have dreams to chase, answers to find


Life has just begun and I see it run away from me
I have countless dreams and I want to make them real
Track Name: Walk Me Through The Forest
If death comes now, I'll welcome it
With open arms, I'll welcome it
If it takes me now, then I will let it

If it's my time then so be it
It's over and I'll embrace it
Time is up

Walk me through the forest for one last time
I'll say my farewell to all the friends I've made here

The lovely birds, the snow, the trees
The ice, the wind, the fallen leaves
You've all been good to me
Track Name: Jag Kommer Inte Hem
Natten är djup och det är lång väg hem
Jag fryser ihjäl, ögonen har frusit till is
Ett sörjande hjärta, kallt och förlamat
Mardrömmar dag och natt
En evig plåga

Jag kommer inte hem
Det finns ingenting kvar för mig här

Hjärtat har frusit till is.
Track Name: Away From Me
When I see the first snowflake fall, I'll think of you
When I feel cold and numb, I'll think of you
You may not be here anymore
But you'll always be here in my heart forever

Remember the days when life didn't care
Remember the moments we shared
All of a sudden life cared and took you away from me

Unfair, this is all unfair and cruel
I don't understand anything at all
Will life ever go on without you
Why were you taken away from me
When you meant the whole world to me
Track Name: Afraid
There are times when I feel afraid
I close my eyes and hide under the covers
It's too dark in here and I can't see anything
I don't want to see anything
I cover my ears, I don't want to hear anything
No footsteps, no voices, no noises.
