Roots

I stood still for so long,
that my boots grew roots
I never took a step ahead
and my roots grew strong

My shoes heavy with sand
my heart heavy with joy
Walked out to greet the silent ones
took a hold of mother time

Murky skies and silent laughter
chiming bells and steady steps
neverending questions, surely
roots in this world and beyond

Long as the wildest of windy grasses
Broad as the wide open heart
Took one, two, three steps
Blinded by the weary ones

I stood still for so long
that my ears got used to the wind
I watched and the leaves blew down
and my roots grew strong

Murky skies and silent laughter
chiming bells and steady steps
neverending questions, surely
roots in this world and beyond

Milestone

listening, listening not hearing
right sounds on this left ear

pushing through, pushing through a wall
shamelessly holding that fear

White cotton, covering eyes
velvet with a few flaws, like skin

Walking on, walking on using known ways
soaring above built hills

listening, listening and nodding
right sounds on both ears

White cotton, covering eyes
velvet with a few flaws, like skin

Irrationality

walk me down the cold stone floor
up to where the wood starts
make me feel life under my bare feet
and on my sole

walk me down that warm wooden floor
up to where the grass starts
let me feel the moist under my bare feet
let it wrinkle my skin

hold my irrationality
in your capturing mind
take my irrationality
in your burly hands

take me down that green grass
up to where the ocean starts
make me feel the salty drops on my lips
let it wash my face

take me down that ocean line
up to where the horizon starts
make me feel infinity at your side
let it wash me down

hold my irrationality
in your capturing mind
take my irrationality
in your burly hands

Finally, alicealoof.com is up and running! Oh boy, I think we’ve been working on this on thinking level since last summer. But you know how it is, busy busy bees.. We’ve been productive this year, with new songs and booking gigs for the coming summer. The boys are out getting gigs for us, and in the meantime, I’ve been working with the construction of alicealoof.com. Still some small adjustments to do.. but look, it’s nice, isn’t it!

What you can find from here is pretty much everything you need to know about Alice Aloof. News, gigs, pics, contact info and of course, our music. New events and happenings in Alice’s world are always posted here as well as on our other music pages. Our blog you can still find on myspace. Links to the site on the bottom of this page!

Also, even though our webmaster Iku sure did take his sweet time with building of this page, we want to thank him. It looks great!

Now, go out and enjoy this fantastic winter my darlings!
