Lyrics
The one
Thor Oliversen©2010

A feeling of missing something haunts
I might have had some days that passed without it
The wind was in my face
With hints to show the trace
I couldn’t help to notice something’s wrong…

Did I screw it up
Did I mess it up so bad
Could I please just leave the scene
and none would bother…
So none would sense my fake
The hidden wish for more
Should I choose to stay inside the cage

Lead me to the one
The one that’s meant to be
’cause I can’t stay no longer

Then, out of nowhere beauty came to life
A voice that made me listen filled my head
Nothing else was there
The hints turned into flares
At last – all the clues came clear

I have found the one
The one that’s meant to be
and I will stay forever

I couldn’t fool my heart – there’s no other choice

I have found the one
The one that’s meant to be
and I will stay forever

What a groovy soulful backer. That clean rhythm guitar sound is soooooo 335 smooth. What doesn't go better with a hammond B3 sound. Great lead fills and breaks. I like when you really let loose with your voice.

Thor very much dig it. Reminds me of Donald Fagan/Steely Dan. Your progressions always grab me. Soulful and tasty as always. Glad you caught some song time. Well done

I like the jazzy chords you're using here. Nice change to the chorus. Tasty lead fills, and the B3 sound is smooth. I agree with KTB, I hear a Steely Dan vibe.

excellent post Thor
one of my favorite things about your tunes ( and there are several things to like).... your voice... has become one of my favs here... there is something so honest about the way you put a song out there... and you'll go for the note regardless... because it need to be said... and the passion at the end... GREAT...

your band is loose and conversational... you always achieve a live vibe... very natural.. a consistent MJ fav...

good on you Thor

Scott :)
So many uplifting words:) I'm still not very confident with my own singing... But I kind of like doing it anyway;) I'm glad to hear you pick up a live vibe... I like to stay a bit on the rough edge with my performance and mix, to enhance that feeling.

I always enjoy reading your comments. Thanks my friend!

Hey Thor - very cool urban blues / jazz tune happening here. I really like the Van Morrison, laid back groove sound that this tune has. Also some tasty sweet guitar work. Makes for a very enjoyable listen, so thanks!

You've always played well, Thor...
But what keeps improving is the thickness and aliveness of the production and recording....

This song has got that thick tone all through.... the organ, the bass, the drums, and then the guitar tracks. The vocal track sits nicely in the mix to my ears...

I really enjoy the bass tone on this for some reason. And as always I really like the guitar tone...
Dadai.2 said 2478 days ago (July 15th, 2010)
you rock brother....
I love this... love that refrain... the chord. Thor, this is full of great sound... your singing (wow) great lyrics, choice guitar playing, keys... everything. A kind of Steely Thor song ;-)

Many kudos and cheers from Santa Barbara!

Blue-eyed soul?
Good song, soulful delivery.

Maybe the very dry guitars can be pushed somewhat back in the mix? The guitars and piano are very much upfront with not a lot of ambience.

The guitar playing as such is very tasteful.

that unusual progression snagged my ear right away - nice.
wonderfully rich instrumental voices in a really excellent mix, thor.
this sounds so LIVE - good timing on bringing in the additional voices. FOUND at 3:36 - holy wow, take a bow. great job in the vocal department - you just get better and better. that was a fabulous private performance here in North Fork, CA at 9:30 tonite.
thank you, thor!
