I don’t know if you trust me anymore after what I did, after all the things I said I swear it was not intentional Expressing my emotions, always hard for me You deserve everything you’ve ever wanted Trying to find the words, but I can’t reach a single thought Can’t you hold on just a little bit longer So much closer now, I just keep telling myself This is everlasting love I’m afraid I’m out of love This is everlasting love I’m afraid I’m out of love And, it’s not so hard now after all cause everything you wanna do If you say we go, I’ll follow you You showed me where you’re coming from Where you grew up, the rooftop where you used to sit and wait for your life to begin Please don’t make this harder for me now You saw right through me every time, If only I could read your mind Every river flows towards the sea And I though that I was different, I just keep telling myself This is everlasting love I’m afraid I’m out of love This is everlasting love I’m afraid I’m out of love Can’t you hold on just a little bit longer Can’t you hold on just a little bit longer Can’t you hold on just a little bit longer Can’t you hold on just a little bit longer

Get It Right 03:59
If I could tell you how I really feel I could be honest, be real I’d be the best version of myself Wouldn’t be trippin’, not make a mess But I don’t always know what to say And I can be a fool when I’m afraid Cause nothing seems to last forever But I was hoping for eternal love No one can blame me for trying Could I get it right, get it in the daylight I need to know, will I ever get up again Could I get it right, get it right, get it right If I could find I way for us to talk Find a way through the dark But I don’t always know what to say And I can be a fool when I’m afraid Just get me through the day But I was hoping for eternal love No one can blame me for trying Could I get it right, get it in the daylight I need to know, will I ever get up again Could I get it right, get it right, get it right Just hold on for tonight, hold on for tonight Could I get it right, get it in the daylight I need to know, will I ever get up again Could I get it right, get it right, get it right Could I get it right, get it right, get it right Could I get it right, get it right, get it right Could I get it right, get it right, get it right

When nobody sees me And I’m all alone And nobody cares What’s been said Then I close my eyes There’s a mission ahead I feel it all over All over again I just close my eyes and I pretend that I am somewhere else I close my eyes and I disappear I’d give up everything if I just could be dancing like this when you’re here I just close my eyes and I pretend that I am somewhere else I close my eyes and breathe I’d give up everything if I just could be dancing like this when you’re here I need to let go And not look back I will catch up later this is what I’ve got You’re so persuasive but you’ve got no clue I’m wishing you all the best but when you don’t see it from my point of view I need to close my eyes and I pretend that I am somewhere else I close my eyes and I disappear I’d give up everything if I just could be dancing like this when you’re here And suddenly I can feel my legs I feel my shoulders I close my eyes and breathe I am somebody, but I let myself fall for your eyes I’m moving and hoping someday you will see I just close my eyes and I pretend that I am somewhere else I close my eyes and I disappear I’d give up everything if I just could be dancing like this when you’re here I just close my eyes and I pretend that I am somewhere else I close my eyes and breathe I’d give up everything if I just could be dancing like this when you’re here I’d give up everything I’d give up everything I’d give up everything I’d give up everything I’d give up everything

Man, don't look over there she is standing across the room Someone’s talking to her And he’s leaning in closer too Maybe you should go outside Now he's got her against the wall Its hard just being alive But it’s harder to let go Don’t wanna know What you did in the shadows You don’t care If you’re breaking my heart I’ll never fall Like I’ve fallen for you babe Time to forget and move on Shut your sad sad eyes And cover your ears for now No need to feel down Forget what you came for oh It may not be too late If it makes you feel better If your love is real, she’ll come back if you let her Just let her Don’t wanna know What you did in the shadows Can’t you see That you’re breaking my heart I’ll never fall Like I’ve fallen for you babe Time to forget and move on Just move on Just move on

Breathe 04:07 video
I thought I knew the ins and outs of love, but that was before I met you I’m in it for the long run, so I’m running just so we can make it through We’re losing pace and pressure Don’t know if I ever treasured what we had (What we had) On the verge of losing touch Just talk to me and make me understand Make me understand It’s supposed to hurt, for it to be real So I don’t mind the pain I feel I dreamt it, I felt it, I know there is something left there worth fighting for I know you want more I know you want someone to be there Someone who’d never leave Someone who’d let you breathe Let you breathe There’s nothing left for me to do and it hurts to know I’ll never reconcile I’m wondering if I’ve got what it takes for this to go on for a while, oh longer I only want the best for you I’ll stay right here, trying to be strong I thought I knew the ins and outs of love, but now I know that I was wrong I was wrong It’s supposed to hurt, for it to be real So I don’t mind the pain I feel I dreamt it, I felt it, I know there is something left there worth fighting for I know you want more I know you want someone to be there Someone who’d never leave I don’t know if you’ll catch me when I fall I don’t know if I ever knew you at all It’s supposed to hurt, for it to be real So I don’t mind the pain I feel I dreamt it, I felt it, I know there is something left there worth fighting for I know you want more I know you want someone to be there Someone who’d never leave Someone who’d let you breathe I dreamt it, I felt it, I know there is something left there worth fighting for I know you want more I know you want someone to be there Someone who’d never leave Someone who’d let you breathe let you breathe breathe breathe

Snow Ball 04:17
Under the stars she moves We’re making our own rules I’m about to lose it Waiting for something to happen Finally, there she goes Under the stars she moves And I’m about to kiss her Finally, there she goes Under the stars she moves And I’m about to kiss her Finally, there she goes Under the stars she moves And I’m about to kiss her I’m about to lose control (I’m about to lose it) I’m about to throw my arms around her I’m about to tell her exactly what I feel (I’m about to blow up in the air) Finally, there she goes I’m about to blow away, I’m about to blow I’m about to blow, I’m about to blow Finally, there she goes Under the stars she moves And I’m about to kiss her

about

Drama – of the interpersonal kind – that’s what Hajk are about on their upcoming album. The band burst onto the Norwegian scene with their self-titled debut album, garnering broad appreciation way outside of their home country. Now, the highly anticipated follow-up is near – a record that both pulls at the heartstrings and urges you to dance.

Hajk’s 2017 debut received praise from the likes of Astrid S, Sigrid and Kimbra, as well as a united Norwegian music press. Internationally, outlets such as Noisey, Stereogum, Line of Best Fit, Drowned In Sound, The Independent and Clash Music gave the group standing ovations for their idiosyncratic, yet supremely catchy pop tunes, while likening them to everything from Dire Straits and Aztec Camera to Haim.

With the sophomore album, “Drama”, a more confident band is on display. Sharpened by more studio experience, they have once again produced the record themselves. Blending analogue and digital sounds, switching between programmed arrangements and live takes from the studio, drawing on three lead vocalists and several guest musicians, Hajk has done whatever necessary to fullfill their creative vision.

The title “Drama” relates to the drama of humanity and a somewhat naïve yearning for love in a world in which love sometimes seems scarce.

It’s been a while since the band recorded the songs for their debut album, and you can hear that they’re eager to get going. This time they are taking the sound of their debut a few notches further. We get the simple but grand ballads and we get the catchy up-tempo pop songs. In short, drama.
