Interior Dasein Nothing soothes a bout of worldweariness quite like Heligoland's ethereal melodies and Karen Vogt's voice. Love this album so much. Favorite track: Wish.

The Green Kingdom They've delivered the magic once again- the most lush, dreamy sounds imaginable. And with Mr. Guthrie at the helm once more, you can't go wrong! Favorite track: Throw Me To The Stars.

disturbingandpurging It's so good to hear more beautiful Heligoland music! Congratulations Karen for another sublime release. I'll be listening to this one on repeat for a good while. I'm really torn between choosing my favourite track because there's six exceptional ones on this album, all of them jostling for that accolade. Favorite track: Shadows.

Mallory 04:34
Out of the wildness Into the great unknown There’s nowhere like this No other place I’d go Things in my mind start to unfold The deeper I dive, the higher I go You’re all that I desire Always, you’re on my mind Heavenly and divine. Every. Single. Time You are the finest thing I have ever known I feel you beside me when I am on my own What in my life can bring me so close to feeling this loved and wanting to show? Will you tie me to the mast again? If only ‘til the Summer ends ‘Cos the more I see the light of day – I can free myself in every way When you’re all that I desire I never could have known this You’ve always been on my mind I want you to know I’ll always be wild
Hera 04:27
When I woke that morning, there was nothing left to say We knew what we wanted Far too much talking We know what we need to do, so let’s start And of anything should fall away, we don’t need to explain We just keep trying Keep on trying If we keep trying, we’ll find a way We’ll find a way Don’t throw it all away We’ll find a way Don’t waste your time, or our own, when we give all we have I don’t mean to complain But, I just can’t get my head around how you can give up Don’t throw it all away x 3
Hope 05:18
When we gonna go beyond (go beyond) where we are now? All we have is all we are We already knew a long time ago. But, we had a doubt Never ever give up on what you know you can figure out Then you’re gonna go beyond (go beyond) where you are now We had all we needed all along I waited for the sun to rise I waited up for it all night (I waited) I made it through the worst of days I made it through in my own way (I made it) I didn’t know if I’d be alright (I made it) I waited for (I waited) it to unfold (I waited) What once felt cold, now comes to life We had all we needed all along We’ll go beyond when it feels right All we have is all we are Never ever give up on what you know you can figure out
Always 04:47
A little place in my heart; it’s all I can give you Too many times I gave it up; had nothing left for me Without any space, I suffer enormously. Always I go inside and recover. Internal. Introspective My little sanctuary; it saves me from fading How can we care for each other if we don’t learn to care for ourselves?
Palomino 03:32
Wild is the wind… With all my heart, I want to win Even though I could lose everything Be in my world and see through my eyes Then tell me what you would believe I know it’s worth the sacrifice I am prepared to pay the price I hate these limits. So, tell me why we compete with each other? Wounded in the fight, we make amends
Shadows 03:41
Need my time alone Like distance from the sun, to balance me out There’s a gentle feeling I am drawn to seek out before I can move on As I lay myself down, the sun warms me now And I see the big clouds drifting by Like a highway, we’re on Wounded, I am higher than… higher than we aimed Remember this day
Running 04:32
Running barefoot… Hidden in my heart, so I’ll never forget A river in my heart, and I just wanna jump right in it Again and again and again and again again again A rhythm in my heart. No limit in my head The spirit’s in my heart. I feel it all day Running all day. A rhythm in my heart Running all day. No limit in my head Again and again and again and again and again Running barefoot…
If you’re tired and broken and in the dark Know it won’t always be like this You try to focus You’ve reached the hardest part Hold on You will learn to love it Throw me to the stars when my time is up / Look up and tell me what you see We are just a part of something bigger than us / Your love is all you’ll ever need Delight and wonder You’ve more than enough One day you’ll want to share this When you’re light and floating with love in your heart; flying over the ocean Look at me now, while I am here We don’t have long before we leave / We are all that we dare to dream What you can say, say it to me / Like stars, we’re temporary Say it right now, while I am here
Trinity 03:17
My inner world A soft and gentle light I’ll do anything to shield her from outside I’m somewhere in between the darkness and the light And all I ever knew, was wrong – until it was right It was all wrong, until it was right A sacred life/an experience divine Here in my own space, silence is so fine There are enough monsters in my mind to blow it up a thousand times
Wish 05:03
I wait on my own for a little sign When will I find it? If you were mine in another life, I’m sure that I would wish for more I remember I would stay up all night My enemy was love I opened up my home when I wanted to hide I let you inside What if I can’t decide? And, what if it all was wrong? At least I tried. At least, I tried All that I ever learned was that this never ends And, all that I wanted was an illusion
