Lena Olin

What's most interesting and most real to me in my work is to never make the role a complete character, because then you lose a part of the truth. I can't say that this person is just like this or like that. Because you can never do that with real people in real life, so if you try that on stage you lose the truth. Since I myself strive to be able to be a great many things, I also want my character to have that very same liberty. Eventually in that way it will add to a sort of completeness. But it is the story that is told that is the interesting thing and the situations the character is in. And as we humans always are shaped by a special situation or given circumstances, I can never ever say: Thus is my character.

Some Stories, Real Life Stories

well this is the story about elvis
(Not Presley) and about Michael (not Jackson)
and a certain Jean
(not a man, not the Sartre that you
have read)

it is like the story of that bitch
who gave birth to six puppies all in different colors
from different dogs
in the neighborhood, well, she is very protective of
her produce

she exhibits her sharp teeth and goose-flesh skin
when a would-be-spectator comes along
ready for the kill

just like Elvis when his son Michael
was hit with a fist blow by this Jean
it was just a minor injury, a scratch,2 mm of slit
on the wrist or was it on the cheek
nothing of a deformity but what Elvis did
was to stab Jean with a double jagged edged
stainless knife and
kill him

a case of father Elvis
overprotective of son Michael
and so now he is in jail
but look at his face and his grin

a very proud father
having loved his son that much that he would be ready
to give his life
only for a 2mm scratch on the cheek
of his well-loved son
of a bitch.

What Matters Most Is Love And Peace

you keep on saying that
what matters most is love and peace
and then we manage to eke out
a living for ourselves
then what matters
is hunger
we listen to the sound
of our complaining bellies
asking for rice
and fish
because there is only water from the river
odored foul
by these dead mudfishes
now my dear
find me a place where i can sleep
where i can chant
my pleadings to our gods
so they may answer
our little complaints

love and peace you keep saying that
please prove that to me
on this hunger
and poverty
convince
me

Just another suicide that wont make the news

I'm to be a person who takes ther life.
Countless times I have tried.
Maybe one day I will succed.
But I'll only be another suicide that dosen't make the news.
My life is full of pain.
It's had more downs than ups.
I know I will leave a void in peoples hearts.
I don't want to hurt anybody.
Truly I don't.
But try as hard as I try.
I still hurt them anyway.
I never asked for this pain.
I have nothing to gain.
I only want to end my pain.

But now it's to late.
I honestly belive this is the only way.
I'm just another suicide that wont make the news.

Just Like This Right Boot

Where do you plan to go now...
With your gossip to whisper?
And when will you begin to clean...
Notes and other items off your desk.
Make sure it's cleaned of everything.
And look back at this time in your life...
And what you 'have' and have not addressed.
Because ahead for you is a reality you will not believe!
That is coming to you on a track that will not distract you.
Just like this right boot you are about to leave but should take it.
Here! You might want to replace, The heel. It looks as if it is broken!
Something's wrong with it! €€€ððððð€€€Even the stitching is loose.

She Looks Just Like You!

'She looks just like you! ', it says, on the back of the photograph;
Alas, this photograph (and others) is all I have,
To remind me that my importance has not faded
And that I need restore the Natural Order that He created
For a beautiful little lady, who knows not, her 'Dad';
Oh, if only I could share with her, the dreams I had
For a future that put her in the forefront
And not this 'present', subjugated to what others want!
So long as the status quo is maintained, they are satiate,
Yet, with their near-sightedness, they fail to appreciate
What is of paramount importance is this Father-Daughter bond;
Until our consort's reprise, I hold onto memories, most fond,
Of a little lady, I, sadly, no longer know...
And watch emotions that could be no stronger, grow!

-Maurice Harris,5 September 2011

Album: Eternal (2001)
Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah yeah
How can I refuse your body laying next to me
I wanna know if you see the same thing that I see
Listen baby
Laying right here in your bed is where I wanna be
Making love to your body with your body on top of me
[Chorus]
Oh, how I wanna love you babe
Just like this, just like this
Oh, how I wanna touch you babe
Just like this, just like this
Oh, how I wanna feel you babe
Just like this, just like this
Oh, how I wanna love you babe
Just like this, just like this
I wanna try something new baby
That we never tried before
I wanna do something to you babe
Wait a minute, come back here on the floor
Oh tell me how do you like Mr. Bigg's cashmere rug baby
Does it feel good to your body baby
Make you feel right
[Chorus]
Oh, keep on pushing babe
Don't stop now
Slow it down
Make it go round and round
And round and round and round
It's time to go down
Don't stop what you doing babe cuz
I'm going down
[Chorus]

I Just Like The Feeling

(graham russell)
I just like the feeling
You give me when the time is right
I just like the feeling
When you tell me youll be here tonight
Let me believe that this moment is good for you too
When you leave its not really all through
Does it get to you
I just like the feeling
Of pretending that some day youll stay
I just like the feeling
That your love is not too far away
Tell me again
That youll stay for as long as you can
When Im really not part of the plan
(chorus)
I just like the feeling
I just like the feeling
I just like the feeling
Closest to love
I just like the feeling
When youre next to me without a sound
I just like the feeling
When you tell me that youre all unwound
One night Im yours and tonight
You can have nothing less
Tomorrow I long for the rest
Tell me a lie
If it helps me get through one more day
You know Ill be here anyway
(chorus)
One night Im yours and tonight
You can have nothing less
Tomorrow I will long for the rest
Tell me a lie
If it helps me get through one more day
You know Ill be here anyway
(chorus)

Just Like You

(ferry)
Buttercup daisies
And most anything
They wither and fade
After blossom in spring
Time conquers innocence
Pride takes a fall
In knowledge lies wisdom
Thats all
Everything changes
Weather blows hot or cold
Through alchemy iron turns gold
Quicksilver baby
So hard to pin down
Oh when are you coming around?
Hopelessly grounded
I walk through the streets
Remembering how we spent time
Hopefully yearning that someday well meet
But when will we, how could we - why? oh my!
Fashion houses ladies
Need plenty loose change
When the latest creation
Is last years fab-rave
Thought patterns hazy
This auto-style age
Will lady luck smile old and sage?
She knows that ......
Never again, no, will I give up my heart
To gamble with fate is my crime
Nevertheless love, its all here in my book
Id write it but dont have much time
You see, I know it sounds crazy
But what can I do?
Ive fallen head over heels, over you
Chameleon colour
All phases of moon
The shifting of planets
And leopard spots too
As destiny wills it
So seasons will change
Just like you

Just Like You And Me

How many lovers counted all the stars in the sky?
Thanking each and every one for their one and only one
How many saw the heavens there in each other's eyes?
Knowing they were meant to be
Just like you and me
It's so hard to imagine anyone loved like this before
Through the ages all the poets said it's true
That a heart could surely die without the love its living for
I know every part of my heart is living for you
How many loves never see the world going by?
All the days seem to float, the seasons come and go
How many grow together never really needing to try?
It's something they already know
As if it happened long ago
It's so hard to imagine anyone loved like this before
Once in a lifetime's here and now
If they ever find what we have the whole world will be sure
If they ever get it perfect, it's you and I that showed em how
There's no denying no one ever loved like this before
It's something surely anyone can see
Though there may have been the perfect love so many times before
Who knew they'd always be together
Just like you and me
How many saw the heavens there in each other's eyes?
Knowing they were meant to be
Just like you and me

Published by summerlea music, ltd. - bmi
Alive and jivin, bareback ridin, anything to tease you
We rant and rave, the world to save, anything to please you
Now all night long we roll along, we aint in bed till seven
I know damn well were goin to hell, cant pay the price in heaven
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
They say were no class, man are they crass, smiles upon their faces
Were glad to be this way you see, we have no need for crazes
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Were rock n roll children tonight
Were gonna rattle everything in sight
Look out ma, the hooligans are rolling tonight
Weve been gone a long long time, and I only want to see you
Im headin home and all alone, you know how much I need you
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Were rock n roll children tonight

Look out ma, the hooligans are rolling tonight

Just Like This Train

Im always running behind the time
Just like this train
Shaking into town
With the brakes complaining
I used to count lovers like railroad cars
I counted them on my side
Lately I dont count on nothing
I just let things slide
The station masters shuffling cards
Boxcars are banging in the yards
Jealous iovinil make you crazy
If you cant find your goodness
cause you lost your heart
I went looking for a cause
Or a strong cat without claws
Or any reason to resume
And I found this empty seat
In this crowded waiting room
(everybody waiting)
Old man sleeping on his bags
Women with that teased up kind of hair
Kids with the jitters in their legs
And those wide, wide open stares
And the kids got cokes and chocolate bars
Theres a thin man smoking a fat cigar
Jealous lovinli make you crazy
If you cant find your goodness
cause youve lost your heart
What are you going to do now
Youve got no one
To give your love too...
Well Ive got this berth and this roll down blind
Ive got this fold up sink
And these rocks and these cactus going by
And a bottle of german wine to drink
Settle down into the clickety ciack
With the clouds and the stars to read
Dreaming of the pleasure Im going to have
Watching your hairline recede
(my vain darling)
Watching your hair and clouds and stars
Im rocking away in a sleeping car
This jealous lovins bound to make me
Crazy
I cant find my goodness
I lost my heart
Oh sour grapes
Because I lost my heart

The Real Life

Suzanne divorced her husband
She got the keys and the car and the home
But her friends were really his friens
No one stops by to see her much any more
So one night, she goes back down to
The old haunts
That once upon a time were her own
She didnt know nobody out there no
More
And the whole experience just made her
Feel so old
She says
I want to live the real life
I want to life my life close to the bone
Just because im middle-aged that
Dont mean
I want to sit around my house and watch tv
I want the real life
I want to live the real life
Jackson jackson was a good kid
He had four years of college
And a bachelors degree
Started workin, when he was 21
Got fed up and quit
When he was 43
He said, my whole life
Ive done, what I supposed to do
Now id like to maybe do something
For myself
And just as soon, I figure out what
That is
You can bet your live
Im gonna give it hell
He says
I want to live the real life
I want to life my life close to the bone
Just because im middle-aged that
Dont mean
I want to sit around my house and watch tv
I want the real life
I want to live the real life
I guess, it dont matter, how old you
Are
Or how old one lives to be
I guess, it boils down to what we did
With our lives
And how we deal with our own
Destinies
But something happens
When you reach a certain age
Particularly to to those ones, that are
Young at heart
Its a lonely proposition when you
Realize
That theres less days in front of the
Horse
Than riding in the back of this cart
I say
I want to live the real life
I want to life my life close to the bone
Just because im middle-aged that
Dont mean
I want to sit around my house and watch tv
I want the real life
I want to live the real life.

Just Like The Rain

Just like the rain,
That pours from the sky,
My love for you will never die.

Just like the rain,
That falls on the ground,
I will always be around.

Just like the rain,
That falls upon me,
I'm as happy as I could ever be.

Just like the rain,
With it's pure beauty,
It surely is a sight to see.

Just like the rain,
I can now see,
We were truly meant to be.

Just like the rain,
Sometimes warm and sometimes cold,
You make my heart, not break, but fold.

Just like the rain,
Beneath your feet,
Just come over here and take a seat.

Just like the rain,
Watch it with me,
So you can begin to see.

Just like the rain,
Who may always know,
That I need to stay, and never go.

Just like the rain,
Who knows what's in my heart,
It knows we should never be apart.

Just like the rain,
Please just stay,
And never go any day.

Just like the rain,
That descends from the sky,
Please, please just give me a try...

Just like the rain,
It doesn't last forever,
But it might if we're together.

Just like the rain,
I'm asking you,
When are you going to?

Just like the rain,
I cannot wait,
Until I'm finally in that place.

Just like the rain,
That's in that place in your heart,
When am I going to be that part?

Just like the rain,
That goes alone,
Am I going to turn into stone?

Just like the rain.
I'm waiting for you,
Waiting until you finally do.

Just like the rain,
That goes away,
Do you really want me to stay?

Just like the rain,
I want to know,
Should I stay or should I go?

Just like the rain,
Before that time is passed,
Why don't you just ask?

Just like the rain,
So mysterious to me,
You are just as much as thee.

Just like the rain,
I feel on my skin,
When will you let this relationship begin?

Just like the rain,
I cannot wait,
So come and ask me,
Before it's too late.

And You Made Just Like Churchill...

The word is they found you dead last night,
alone.....on the porch of your Eastside digs,
a warm Crème de Cacao 'side a hardbound
of T. Capote's 'Portraits and Observations'.

[ And wasn't that how you'd dreamt it, mate-
raise your soul......and smile forever]?

Ahh, bu' ya' 'ad a God-Good run, chum, ya' did-
(to use your own endearing cliche) ....did ya' not?

Sailing your pin-striped sunfish....'cross the Bay
the low, flaming cherry...dripping from the west,
upon pink liquid salt......as August sunset's must
ridin' eve's silver ripple til Sun became the Moon.

We'd anxiously wait along Saint Lawrence Pier
as you pulled into dock, and quietly took a seat,
telling us tales........as long as the Seaway itself,
painting wide smiles that stretched out our lips;
................................and the time moved so fast.

And, you had a good run............ said so yourself,
the morn Doc Quinn sat you down with grim-face
sent you home with prescription........ for cordials;
...................................God, the time went so fast!

And, i don't think i'll ever forget the stunned faces
when you'd slump down into your wingback chair,
tell them all how life is only worth living 'ALIVE',
...and you made just like Churchill,
bellowing.......at their blank stares,
reaching.......into your vest pocket,
revealing......that solid gold lighter,
flicking......the last of its fire water,
kissing.......the tip of your fat stogie,
endulging its flavour with grandeur

[Oh, yes, my friend, indeed you were priceless to the finish]!

And, we miss you quite much...August comes once again,
because in spite of all the memories, stories and laughter-
The late days of Summer are so long.....and evertoo quiet.

This morning.......while watching the Sun take its place
I saw a crisp-moving sunfish 'cross The Bay, before me-

Not a single pinstripe....what a shame.

Maybe It Is Just Like That.....

as you trim the bushes
outside the fence

i am eating cold spaghetti
with sour bread and i get no
hot coffee

it is a bright day
and the sun is slowly rising from a gray horizon

gone were the days when we cannot eat
if we are not together

maybe it is just like that.

Just like the previous

I know I will reach the point
When I will stop what I am doing now
Just like the previous ones once
For no reason at all I cease what I am

I stop, and pause and look at the main
The essence of what was left once simply
Because it remains unsolved, the main

Reason why all these come about
That which I cannot face because it is too harsh.

Just Like Each Season Witnessed

If you are not living your life to the fullest,
In the HERE and NOW...
You will not be convinced about 'tomorrow'.
Because those expectations have yet to be accepted.

Those who grieve over yesterdays gone,
Wish to share their stagnation...
With someone who will give them time,
To empathize with a fixed mind wasting time!

And time...
Most people are finding,
Does not play favorites.
It keeps on ticking until someone unwittingly,
Believes for them time does not stop!
It does.
Just like each season witnessed!

Make The Most Of It!

Said the Junior Dean.

What isIt
that we should make the most of it?
What have we
that we can justly boast of it?

We have inherited our share of wealth;
and karma and good sense
have brought us health.
Time weighs not on our hands
and, as things stand,
we have sufficient
and do not rightly understand
if of Time we think ourselves deficient.

But what if, as in the parable, we have concealed
our talent in the ground,
and, newly dead, the fruit
of our labours is revealed
and nothing found
and all has been in vain?
Then, downward spiralling, off we go again
to land, with new bruises, in some older state,
to sift through the ashes
of the bonfire of our desires
and stare into the shadows of “too late”.

Just Like All The Rest.

Just like all the rest, oh girl what have you been through. How can you say such things when you don't know. Hasn't he told you. I'm a train wreck. A man looking for a little substance in my life. And again you say like all the rest. Girl you must be so blessed to say that to me. For i know what i need and so must you. Cataclysmic was the time when we met. I was weak, so were you. I was looking for somebody. So were you. Still i hear you say just like all the rest. I must confess. When worlds collide. And tears fall that we try to hide. Always the better person. So rehearsed. So well versed. I can say just like all the rest. You left in such a mess. And you will still never know. You got to give someone a chance before you just let go. Just like all the rest are words i shall never forget.

Just Like Before

My long hair it blows, in the industrial breeze.
My fingernails grow, down to my knees.
The light thats beside me, is just laves of beans.
All that I know, is not what it seems.
Cause Ive tried moving out,
But Im tied to this floor.
Its just like before.
Its the red of the world, that you see with your eyes.
You say that youre happy, when youre wanting to die.
Oh well, its just like before.
Oh well, it runs in your veins.
Just like before.
It keeps it the same.
Cause Ive tried moving out,
But Im tied to this floor.
Its just like before.
Well, the suns in the sky, it swings and it sways.
But it dont shine on tuesdays, and its cloudy all day.
Its just like before.
Oh, when it runs in your veins.
Its just like before.
Nothing will change.
Cause Ive tried moving out,
But Im tied to this floor.
Its just like before.
