YOU RAISE ME UP

( Music: Rolf Løvland. Lyrics: Brendan Graham)

Lyrics as they are sung by Johnny Logan in this performance

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

There is no life ‘ no life without the hunger;
Each beaten heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, it feels I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

Simone from “Hver gang vi møtes” 2014 on TV2

Simone Larsen was born in Freiburg, Germany and raised in Volda from the age of nine. She started singing in bands when she was 13, and has a background in jazz, soul and pop. After high school she moved to Oslo, where she sang with The Dingleberries before she met Jonny and Kim. The trio began playing together the summer of 1993. The idea was to create melodic pop with jazz and funk inspired rhythms. Elements from groovy funk, acid jazz and modern dance music mixed with the trio’s penchant for the melodic, and from this arose a unique sound – a “sound”. They chose to name their band The Sound. The drummer, Ofstad, suggested a more eye catching spelling  – D’Sound. (ref.: Rockipedia )

NAME:  Simone Eriksrud

BIRTHDAY:  21st of August
