Trivia Edit

  • On her live performance in Fivelstad, she shares on her Instagram that "i went back to Fivelstad where i started about 30 years ago. growing up there were no instruments in my house and no places to hang out in, but i was allowed to exercise in this church and dream big. it was a surreal and special moment coming back. and to ‘just sing’ this special song. thanks john, claes and the audience of dad, sister and the janitor."
  • The lyrics seem to point out Lee's bout of health-related issues she admitted in her bio. "The most significant source of insecurity and fear has, ultimately, proved to hinge on ionnalee’s health, as a cancer scare, numerous medical screenings and a subsequent diagnosis of a thyroid disorder exposed a serious possibility of permanent damage to the singer’s vocal chords. Facing that real risk of not being able to sing in the future and the fear of losing her most important way of self-expression, there arose in ionnalee an even greater drive to produce something special and perdurable with EVERYONE AFRAID TO BE FORGOTTEN. “The thought of not being able to sing had never occurred to me. That would be like losing my gut”, she says." Read more.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1: ionnalee]
As far as the eye can see
The wastelands I call my home
Returning for the thrill
Where my silence is silver
My noise is gold

[Chorus 1: ionnalee]
The lightest dunes of sand
Are mountains, I let them grow
Standing on my two hands
Under your control

[Verse 2: Jamie Irrepressible]
I saw it, it was real
A place for us to start a home
I'm going in for the kill
My silence is silver
So I've been told

[Chorus 1: Jamie Irrepressible]
The lightest dunes of sand
Are mountains, I let them grow
Standing on my two hands
Under your control

[Chorus 2: ionnalee]
The lightest dunes of sand
Won't let me raise my voice
Stranded on dried up land
Flooded and overgrown

[Bridge: ionnalee & Jamie Irrepressible]
My silence is silver
My noise is gold

[Chorus 1: ionnalee & Jamie Irrepressible]
The lightest dunes of sand
Are mountains, I let them grow
Standing on my two hands
Under your control

[Chorus 2: ionnalee & Jamie Irrepressible]
The lightest dunes of sand
Won't let me raise my voice
Stranded on dried up land
Flooded and overgrown

[Outro: ionnalee & Jamie Irrepressible]
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
