Oh Lord
When your heart beats within mine
Oh mine
Am I in any way divine?
Or still twisted and unkind?
And low down
In the misty gorges of time
Well oh Lord
When your heart beats within mine
No I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day

Well oh Lord
When your heart beats within mine
Oh mine
Am I in any way divine?
Or still twisted and unkind?
Oh no I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day

Well I can hear your heart beat
As we are lifted off the ground
It's all around
Oh no I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day
No no I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day

Five years since you came up with this gem. Are you out of your anal phase now?


I hope not, as that's pretty good. I had a buddy who used to sing, "when I blew a younger man's nose" instead of "when I wore a younger man's clothes" in Piano Man. I think it made it better.
I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when the final mix was being put together. Did they get the feels too? Or was it more of "how about one more take?"
He might have the best men's voice at this time. There is not a song by him with Madrugada or other bands and his own albums.  I could listen him all day.

Ha!  I bought my Roku M1001 music player way back when because RP recommend it.   WAY before Roku did anything with video streaming.  I loved thst little thing, did exactly what I needed.  Sadly, it died about a year ago.  Now I have to deal with some Bluetooth BS.

May be the most beautiful song I have ever heard.
Amazing song and the voice matches the lyrics and song mood perfectly. To me, some inflections in his voice remind me a bit of Elvis.

Never listened to this band until now on RP. Thank you for this recommendation.

This song is just beautiful. I had never heard of this group until I started listening to RP. Love also Majesty (live). This alone is worth supporting  RP financially. Thank you William and the RP Staff. 
A superlative voice. I also love the contemplative nature of the album cover.
What an incredible tone he achieves.  His live performance of Majesty is easily in my list of all time faourites.
I am in love with Sivert Hoyem.  Hopeless, unrequited, but I have his voice.
just love his voice - like rich velvet. 
these haunting chords and words - Siverts voice is magical
reminds me of Jack L's voice (Jack L is an Irish artist for those who haven't heard of him, he has a haunting bass voice)
Just me or does the lead sound like the lead from Catherine Wheel? 
Good Tune!

my friend used to drink in Oslo with these guys and especially Sivert… He’s got an amazing voice and uses it well.
Sounds a bit like Richard Hawley with similar guitar too - check out

I have two giant mover's boxes full of CDs. I've dragged them around for twenty years.  Could not bring myself to get rid of them.

to keep the theme running....I just noticed this album is named "The Deep End"
Cool, laid-back song and amazing baritone. Likely voice trained 
Never heard Madrugada before. Thanks RP.

This reminds so much of "Lost in the dream" by The War On Drugs.

Bloomington-Normal - that reminds me. I live in the Chicago burbs and would make plenty of drives to either central Illinois for work or to St.Louis or central MO for pleasure. I would make a special effort nearly every time to stop in B-N to eat at Schlotzsky's Deli; I loved their sandwiches & pizzas, but they closed all the stores locally, so this is basically my best shot to get their food. Seeing your comment here got me to look them up on Google ... and it looks like they shut down that location. Now I'm slightly depressed.

Good GOSH Madrugada is some good stuff.  If this song lights you up in any way, take a listen to "Lift Me" with Madrugada + Ane Brun. <3

This is really nice. The voice, to me, has a bit of Roy Orbison in it. Right?

  WOW!  Thanks, beerbear - and July is coming up fast.  I love the odd venues for concerts. Somehow, it makes them more intimate and fun, like a big secret from the rest of the world.  I'm glad you shared this. {#Daisy}


The instrumentals here sound so much like Eno's Apollo.  Kudos.  They did so well with this.  I LOVE IT!!

not bad...but definitely different than Madrugada.  It's a real shame what happened to Buras....Madrugada was great.

I ALWAYS buy CDs when they are available. Yeah, it's a bit inconvenient to wait for it but in addition to it working in CD players you can rip it to FLAC and enjoy that tasty audio goodness anywhere. It really doesn't compare to the MP3s you can get off Amazon etc; really no comparison at all. Once you've heard FLAC....

Plus while album art isn't what it used to be, it's not going to get any better from buying a digital copy. If an artist just produces one song "i like" I don't spend the money because really do they have the talent? On the other hand, with a CD I usually end up liking several songs more than whatever drew me to the artist in the first place. Beauty is fleeting but talent must be savored.

Chill.... The quote never said anything about "correct" English. 'Seems like a legit, non-judgemental question to me. Besides, if I had to put money on what the correct way to pronounce "thing" was, I'd be fairly comfortable betting that using an "f" wouldn't be it... 

 

But only if you still had all your front teeth.  If they're missing, then the th sound morphs into an f.  Somewhat related: we know that the toothbrush was invented in Arkansas.  Anywhere else and it would have been called a teethbrush.

I found Madrugada one month ago and they are just great. You must listen to other songs. Group from {#War}, deserve pure 10.


I think the lead singer sounds a lot like Alan Rickman.  I like the shimmering guitar in this song.
