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.

about

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.

Track Name: Welcome To The Goldmine
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
Track Name: Red Is Beautiful
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
Track Name: On The Beach
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
Track Name: Free To Roam
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
Track Name: Falling Free
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
Track Name: Gimme Gimme
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
Track Name: Silverlake '91
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
Track Name: What Have You Got In Return ?
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 ?
Track Name: The Well
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
Track Name: Dreamrose
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
Track Name: Cindy
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
Track Name: Section 29
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’
Track Name: Big Boy Cry
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
