about

With this song, I am paying homage to my all time musical hero, Peter Gabriel. He permeates everything I do as a musician and a vocalist!

Lyrically, it is also a spiritual song with a message of love and support for my like-minded friends back in my native Denmark who celebrate inclusion and empathy and reject divisiveness and fear!

lyrics

Across The Water

Hey - don’t be afraid
Just hold still

Across the water
There is a shadow
And it feeds on fear
Do not give in
Do not despair
Just believe that I will always be right here

Just hold still
It won’t be long
Until everything is gone
It won’t be long
It won’t be long

Across the water
There is a darkness
Like a tumor in your brain
Do not surrender
To petty lies
Do not believe in this fraudulent campaign

Don’t be afraid
Just hold still
(Always be right here)

Just hold still
It won’t be long
Until everything is gone
It won’t be long
It won’t be long
It won’t be long

From where I stand
I see what you’ve become
I know that I belong
Right here

Hey - don’t be afraid
Just hold still
Hey - don’t be afraid
(There is a shadow)
I will always be right here
(Repeat)

Across the water
There is a shadow
And it feeds on fear
Do not give in
Do not despair
Just believe that I will always be right here

about

DVR Brooklyn, New York

DVR is mostly a studio project. Music is written, recorded, produced and mastered by me Olav Christensen. I'm a Dane living in Brooklyn, NY. It is mostly all me, but sometimes awesome people collaborate!
Style, you ask? I go from electronica weirdness to straight up singer/songwriter stuff in a heartbeat! I try to keep everything separated in neat little boxes but they always seem to get mixed up!
