about

Emerald Park

Emerald Park are an indie-pop outfit from Malmo, Sweden. For Tomorrow, their second album, is full of bright, catchy songs and refreshingly free of artifice. The album doesn’t come with a built-in gimmick or a breathless press release proclaiming the band’s indie credibility. Instead, the band simply delivers 45-plus minutes of well-written, likable songs...Grade 7/10" Popmatters.com ... more

Track Name: The Commonfield
It's a twenty-four seven song
And a night that's very long
But it's not that big deal
It's only how I feel
Am I coming on too strong?
I'm just trying to pull my weight
It's a challenge to endure the pressure and the blur


This is our common ground
We're constantly between the lines
And somewhere, somehow
I'll find you:II

It's a twenty-four seven thought
That I might have stayed too long
So please go ahead in advance
Because I will follow you
I will follow you
You've got everything you'll ever need
In the twenty-first century
Will you tell me if you disagree?
You've got everything you need.

Will you carry me? Can you bare my weight?
Can you bare my weight? Will you carry me?
Can you you bare my, bare my weight?

This is our common ground
We're constantly between the lines
And somewhere, somehow
I'll find you

This is our common ground
We're constantly between the lines
And somewhere, somehow
I'll find you
Track Name: Ume
I’ve been sneaking quietly around you
Searching for a sign or an invitation
But you are absent occupied with your stuff
You have not seen me, haven’t felt the tension that surrounds us
I’ve been waiting, silently hesitating
My intentions are obvious, but not spoken

But you’re not there
No you’re not there
No you’re not there
In the sunshine
You’re hard to follow, so hard to follow
So hard to follow
You’re hard to follow

You know I want, but you wait for my confession
I won’t please you, I won’t be the one to take the stand
I’ve been sneaking quietly around you
Searching for a sign or an invitation

Cast on the wall
A shadow
A ghost in the hall
A shadow

But you’re not there
No you’re not there
No you’re not there
In the sunshine
You’re hard to follow, so hard to follow
So hard to follow
You’re hard to follow

In the sunshine
When the lights out
In the sunshine
So easy to follow
You’re easy to follow
In the sunshine
So easy to follow
Track Name: A Higher Loss
She never said:
”Why, didn’t you give me a chance,
A chance to sort things out before you left me?”
I wanted to leave
To leave her with pain.
With an ache inside
Her heart since I left her.
The regret that I feel
is honest and real
There’s an ache inside my heart
since I left her

I jumped into conclusions
A leap out of her shiny, tiny world
A big misunderstanding
I thought there was more than us
It’s a higher loss than I ever thought it was

She never denied
No she never really tried
To explain the circumstances
So I left her

I jumped into conclusions
A leap out of her shiny, tiny world
A big misunderstanding
I thought there was more than us
It’s a higher loss than I ever thought it was
Track Name: Värnhem
Let me of at the next stop
Life’s what happens
on the other side
A sudden moment
is passing us by
On the other side

Let me of at the next stop
Everybody’s heading the same way
Please don’t look me straight in the eye

Let me of at the next stop
Life’s what happens on the other side
A sudden moment’s passing us by
On the other side
On the other side
Track Name: Istanbul
I’m sorry
You found out
I didn’t enjoy
I didn’t approve
That you called me
And told me
I were not to blame
It feels quite insane

But now you’ve heard me
I’ve hurt thee
Creature inside
The living in life
Now it’s your turn
And my concern
You aren’t to blame
It feels quite insane

Let’s use the fire to burn down the shaft
Let’s use the fire to burn down the shaft
Use the fire to burn it down
The half builded fake walls
Istanbul is crumbling
So lets burn!
Track Name: At the Mall
It started in the basement
Supposed to be a hidden door
Took us to the first floor
A place I’ve never been before
A place I’ve never been before

Everyone around us
Was staring at the sign behind us
A hypnotizing slideshow
Pockets full of gold that glows
Pockets full of gold that glows

From door to door
From face to shape
From shape to grace

You control the money
But we have got the power, honey
We know how to please you
Satisfy my needs, you plead
Satisfy my needs, you plead

Come on!
If you hurry, we can make you
king or queen
This is just the right place
If you’ve got the money, honey
If you’ve got the money, honey

From door to door
From face to shape
From shape to grace
Track Name: Open
Darling why, don’t you cry
Let it out
Tears will ease the pressure

Open up! Don’t hold back
Soon you’ll burst
Tears will ease the pressure

I will give you some relief
If you come to me again
I will hold you in my arms
If you open up to me

Darling please, come to me
Let me in
Let me ease your pressure

Lay your head on my knee
Shut your eyes
Let me ease your pressure

I will give you some relief
If you come to me again
I will hold you in my arms tonight
If you open up to me
Track Name: Lights of Sunday
There’s a man a know
Who’s sadness shines and glows
Wearyness derives
From lack of life

Lived for Friday night
A shadow in the light of Sunday
Because he has lost his faith

He’s tired of himself
Don’t think sleep will help
You’re weary and you sleep
Because you’re tired of yourself

When you’re sorry for yourself
You push your friends away
And when you push your friends away
You feel sorry for yourself
You feel sorry

There’s a man a know
Who needs to fill the void
He has within
Loneliness is walking with disgrace
Everything’s the same
A quiet day, the guilt has just increased
Now he’s filled the void
He’s got inside
So lost in there
All alone
So sorry for himself

He’s tired of himself
Don’t think sleep will help
You’re weary and you sleep
Because you’re tired of yourself
When you’re sorry for yourself
You push your friends away
And when you push your friends away
You feel sorry for yourself
You feel sorry
Track Name: For Tomorrow
There is a kiss on your shoulder
I’ve seen it there for a while
Waiting for me to catch it

I thought I saw a caress
Slipping down your legs
Waiting for me to follow

There’s an embrace ‘round your chest
I’ve seen it there for a while
I’ll take it in my arms tonight

I’ll save it for another day
If this might be the last one
I’ll save it for tomorrow
I’ll save it for another day
If this might be the last one
I’ll save it for tomorrow
I’ll save it for tomorrow

There was a smile on your lips
Something you can’t deny
Waiting for me to taste it

There is a kiss on your shoulder
I’ve seen it there for a while
I’ll take it in my arms tonight

I’ll save it for another day
If this might be the last one
I’ll save it for tomorrow
I’ll save it for another day
If this might be the last one
I’ll save it for tomorrow
I’ll save it for tomorrow
Track Name: Obscured By Lies
It has finally happened
the thing we could never avoid
It is painfully true that
it never could be me and you
What we had is not allowed around here
The ring on your finger
Made us the outlaws of love

When I see you walk out the door
I know it's the last time
I know it's the last time you walk through my door
Our deception is over we could not help
Fooling ourselves

We have walked through the shadows
Trying to keep out of sight
We made up our sanctuary
A castle built out of lies

When I see you walk out the door
I know it's the last time
I know it's the last time you walk through my door
Our deception is over we could not help
Fooling ourselves

We have walked through the shadows
Trying to keep out of sight
We made up our sanctuary
A castle built out of lies
Track Name: Satellite
Finally I’m here
The journey took a long time
Darkness all around, silence surrounds me
Everything is steady now
I have not the power to decide

This is what I want
I’ve got a perfect spot here
All I see is you. Its` stunning I’ve got here
I have left the space behind
Now your’re there to give me peace of mind

I’m in orbit around your heart
Can’t exist if we are apart
I’ve been a satellite right from the start
Lost in universe
Gravity’s my curse

Connection has been settled
Communication’s steady
You see me in the evenings and sometimes in the nights
You provide the gravity
I am just a little satellite

I like to keep my distance
But somehow never leave
It really suits me perfect
That you know my every move
You are my assurance now
I am powerless against your strength

I’m in orbit around your heart
Can’t exist if we are apart
I’ve been a satellite right from the start
Lost in universe
Gravity’s my curse
