WELCOME TO THE GOLDMINE Wandering for ages, he said I’ve always tried to sing my song I said; Hey man, welcome to the goldmine. Watch the wheel goes round. He knows so well the feeling of a spirit that is fading I said; Hey man, welcome to the goldmine. Watch the wheel go round. If you’d see a real troubled man, take him to the source again Lead him to the goldmine, turn him upside down The freaky city overkill, they all come running down the hill I said; Wow man, welcome to the goldmine. Watch the wheel go round. And if you’re looking for an answer, take a look at all your friends here There ain’t no one, no one here to countdown and stop the wheel go round

RED IS BEAUTIFUL Day in day out, we have to face the rituals Of everything we want and eveything we�ll never gain You to be me, me to be you and everyone together too Oh, it hurts, it hurts at dusk, it hurts at night But it flickers, it’s giving light, shimmering at dawn Thinking thing, you’re everything, everything but life Troubled seas, two enemies and in between a knife Everything is slippery, but give to me, talk to me on ice Oh, it hurts, it hurts at dusk, it hurts at night But it flickers, it’s giving light, shimmering at dawn Carry a gun, point it on me, I won’t run Carry a gun, shoot it on me. Red is beautiful Living in spiritual, giving in when time comes thundering And everything gets nothing when life stops Filling in the hidden things, ending life with red drops Day in day out, we have to face the rituals Of everything we want and eveything we’ll never gain You to be me, me to be you and everyone together too Oh, it hurts, it hurts at dusk, it hurts at night But it flickers, it’s giving light, shimmering at dawn Carry a gun, point it on me, I won’t run Carry a gun, shoot it on me. Red is beautiful

On The Beach 04:23
ON THE BEACH I’m waiting on a telephone To ring a song so blue A simple song that rings along M y flesh and bones for you For all the broken hearted Make everything all right But I lost my mind in the sun I’m working hard, so very hard Not to hear the news But to think of her with her lover boy I wonder what she feels She could be just perfect She could be all right If only she knew how to smile On the beach, nothing to do On the beach I’ve got the same old feeling too And if not about me, then all about you I’m too old for rock’n roll, I’m ready for the blues And the sun goes down But I’m still around And it’s so good to be with you Oh silver moon come shining over the water soon And I’ll be in the mood for your love

Free To Roam 04:08
FREE TO ROAM The long way up was no long way down it’s easy to fall with someone like you around The way you ran really knocked me down And the hole in my heart will be forever unsung Free to roam, rock’n roll Free to roam, but I wanna come home The dreaming of was better then the best And to swallow you now would really do the rest But that’s all behind me now, you just let me down And there’s one thing I know now I’ve turned around I’ve dreamed this dream that everything turned to past But I won’t look back, I won’t look back I just wanna come home

Falling Free 05:02
FALLING FREE Darkness surrounds us and brittle brains we are Nothing can stop us from falling from a star And yonder only skies, blank spots in our minds Spirits are crying an endless aching ‘why’ Oblivion’s appealing for nothing seems worth to try But yes, I’m doing fine. All this lies behind And I’m falling free Sometimes I feel like I’ll leave it all behind Dust on my lungs and black smoke around my mind And yonder only skies, blank spots in our minds Little by little I stumble to your door Leaving the dust of my failures on your floor But yes, I’m doing fine. All this lies behind And I’m falling free A million years late and a load on my shade No fuel to create and I crash into fate With one way to escape It’s one step through the gates of my last dream I drink myself to sleep, mama

Gimme Gimme 04:14
GIMME GIMME Always been living on the same energy Sometimes I know it’s been too long since changes Too long since anything different came along Gimme gimme gimme enough of this If I laid your anger down, would you pay my space in gold Would you let go of me, now my golden cage got old Too long since freedom, or anything different came along Gimme gimme gimme enough of this Soon you’ll be the one around my fence of all I say Soon you’ll get me going down, down in your purple ways Knock, knock on my beloved prison door Gimme gimme gimme enough of this Green grow the leaves, it’s raining. Step by if you want some If not for the harvest party, be around if the sun comes Too long since anything different came along Gimme gimme gimme enough of this Bull fighting, horse riding, flash lightning, I’ll take it all Butterflies, cannonballs, aero planes, I’ll fly them all Silver chains, concrete walls, iron bars I’ll break em all Booby traps, waterfalls, cemeteries, I’ve walked them all

SILVERLAKE '91 Where she lives there’s a silver lake And she is naked all the time. She has seen every single flower And she knows them all by name She says I’m awake all of the time So take your medicine and go to sleep Yes I’ve seen her in 1991 When a war had just begun I was shaking, I could not face anyone I was just longing for the sun I’d been awake all of the time So I took my medicine and went to sleep And now there’s buses, now there’s trains They all run in to see That she has gone over the planes Beyond the mountains and the see Somewhere it’s written, she’s awake all the time So let’s take our medicine and go to sleep

WHAT HAVE YOU GOT IN RETURN ? Here behind my window, where it's save and narrow I'll cry these tears for you Here in my kingdom with candlelights on I'll do these songs for you. But what have you got in return ? Don't switch the light on when you're in the white room and I'll do these songs for you. I'll drink on your health and I'll kill my own self, I can do that all for you. But what have you got in return ? Here on this graveyard, watch with upper regard and tell me 'what are you ?' Have you finally found out, now you can scream your life out and I'll cease for you. But what have you got in return ? You can clap your hands now, we could be such friends now, but is that all that we can feel ? Could you express yourself now, or will you point your eyes down, is that all that you can feel ? Is that what you got in return ?

The Well 03:41
THE WELL Beautiful and blue eyed, running round in rags Running for them bloodhounds, burning down your flag In the wild open field no one’s digging you a hole Come lay your head at rest now in the bunkers of my soul Lead me down to the well of your red river Let me suck it dry and let the Lord be forgiven My words they all seem worthless, my tunes more weak then strong For how much of my freedom can you buy with this song Come let your spirit speak now, a new dawn has begun Come father blow away now all this hatred from your son Newborn little girl can I look you in the eyes For all I know is nothing and all I say disguise Come let me rock your cradle, you’re better off with lies For the truth is far too painful and too many people died

Dreamrose 03:45
DREAMROSE She lies naked between dirty sheets Someone is with her, but she's still alone The room is filled by the smell of love The flesh beside her makes her close her eyes All her live she's been on the run She dreams a world that will never come And she lives her live on a rainbow She's the gold of a rising sun Once she lived with a motor freak They were sleeping in the open fields She cried; "Dream, dream along with me" He said; "I love you, but you can't come with me" And now she dreams on her own again The endless river is her only friend And she lives her live on a rainbow She's the gold of a rising sun You can dream if you hate your lies You can dream if you hate your live You can travel, but you won't arrive

Cindy 05:37
CINDY (MR. NEEL’S DANCE) I drove into the nightlife with just one single thing on my mind The moon seemed full forever and the lights of the city made me blind So I could only feel the hunger for a woman who would treat me just kind Dry my tears, wash my scars away tonight Oh, Cindy please, don’t call me no more The sound of the phone hurts just like danger knocking on my door Oh, Cindy please, don’t call me no more You’re not the reason, you’re not the one I’m living for So I was drifting even further away from home in my car And in this late night movie I could barely make it to the bar So I stared into a beer can, tried to meditate my soul into a star Ain’t that far, ain’t that far out, my friend The night it drew a picture that I just had to see And I stared into a cradle, I saw a monster looking just like me Oh, the weight of this fiction, how forever ready I’m to sleep And this real life figure Cindy, how forever she will weep With the stars, with the wind

Section 29 05:08
SECTION 29 You say you are receiving a feeling deep inside A holy wisdom in a vision, visiting at night Well as far as I’m concerned this is wisdom of the wine So I propose we’d call your vision ‘section 29’ In section 29 only spirits are awake They don’t like alcoholics and they listen to Nick Drake Well the last thing is forgiven, cause me I do the same But let me have my liquor when I party in the rain There’s too many things you tell me that I don’t like There’s too many words for just one night There’s s too many things you tell me that I don’t like Go back to what I’ve called your ‘section 29’ Too much of the good things is too bad for the brain Believe me I�ve seen many people drive themselves in sane They come to you and say I am Jesus, I control your mind Well let me call this mental sickness ‘section 29’ A rat is a noble creature, tight on its four feet The only thing it cares about is garbage it can eat So if you might run into one, be carefull when you speak It won’t hear your moral complications and kills you when you’re weak Now what was that you talked about, philosophy eased your pain ? You shiver in your shoes for the world you’re in today Now look at what a fool you’ve been to call your dream a name If science won’t bring any fortune than why should you explain Well I guess this shit will happen again and again Go leave this place, live your life and take it as a man You sit and talk as if someone put something in your wine I guess it’s time we’re leaving ‘section 29’

Big Boy Cry 03:07
BIG BOY CRY I can’t stand not knowing where you are And if you can’t come down, than please get out of town So I could lay my head in total rest tonight On a pillow full of life, some memories never die This girl feeds me, she fill the holes in my head Have you ever seen a big boy cry So take a train, my love, for you can’t face it all A long black train, my love, that never comes around And that’ll be all there was, an empty hole of love A history drifting off from a day that wouldn’t laugH

about

'Heartland Revisited' geldt als de echte terugkeer van Erny Green en het is een welkome comeback van deze Utrechtse rasartiest. Bij sommige mannen wordt de stem steeds mooier naarmate de persoon in kwestie ouder wordt. Bij Erny is dit ook absoluut het geval. De manier waarop zijn partijen zijn opgenomen heeft absoluut meegewerkt, maar het is een onvoldongen feit dat de zegkracht en de gelaagdheid van zijn stem in de loop der tijd sterk zijn gegroeid. Het is duidelijk dat je een man hoort met de nodige levenservaring.

Erny Green Utrecht, Netherlands

In '88 trekt Green als straatmuzikant de wereld in. Kille straathoeken wereldwijd, maar ook roemruchte podia als CBGB’s in New York, het zijn de ideale speelplekken voor de Nederlander in deze roerige jaren. In 1992 keert hij gemangeld terug en brengt zijn 1e soloalbum uit.
25 jaar en 9 albums later is het Green gelukt zich bij de absolute top van de Nederlandse liedjesschrijvers te vestigen.
