Demo-songs

I upload some of my demo-songs to Soundcloud. Here, on this page, I have listed a handfull or so of my personal favourites.

I have written over 200 songs by now, so this is really just a small peak... If you are interested in recording and/or publishing any of them feel free to drop me a line on music@bayjensen.dk

I am sure we can work something out!

AM I ON AN ISLAND  –  LAUNCHIN' BOTTLES OUT TO SEA
BEACHED AT THE WATERLINE  –  WILL SOMEONE PLEASE COME AN' RESCUE ME

AM I ON AN ISLAND  –  DROWNIN' NOT WAVIN' AS BOATS GO BY
ABANDONED AT HIGH TIDE  –  WILL NO ONE EVER HEAR MY CRY

HERE AM I SAD TO SAY  –  WRITIN' MESSAGES IN THE SAND
MAROONED A LONELY CASTAWAY  –  WILL SOMEONE LEND A HAND

AM I ON AN ISLAND WILL MY SHIP COME IN
HAS IT RUN AGROUND DID IT GO DOWN
AM I ON AN ISLAND WILL MY SHIP ARRIVE
ONLY THOUGHTS OF YOU KEEP ME ALIVE

AM I ON AN  -  AM I ON A  -  AM I ON A DESERTED ISLAND
AM I ON AN  -  AM I ON A  -  AM I REALLY ON AN ISLAND

FOUND MY FREEDOM - A MISTAKE I MADE
NOT ANOTHER LIVIN' SOUL AROUND
LONELINESS IS THE PRICE I PAID  –  MY TEARS ARE THE ONLY SOUND

AM I ON AN ISLAND  –  SENDIN' SIGNALS FROM THE SHORE
STRANDED UP HIGH AN' DRY  –  WILL NO ONE EVER HEAR MY CALL

HERE AM I SAD TO SAY  –  WRITIN' MESSAGES IN THE SAND
MAROONED A LONELY CASTAWAY  –  WILL SOMEONE LEND A HAND

AM I ON AN ISLAND WILL MY SHIP COME IN
HAS IT RUN AGROUND DID IT GO DOWN
AM I ON AN ISLAND WILL MY SHIP ARRIVE
ONLY THOUGHTS OF YOU HELP ME SURVIVE

AM I ON AN  -  AM I ON A  -  AM I ON A DESERTED ISLAND
AM I ON AN  -  AM I ON A  -  OR IS IT ONLY IN MY MIND


MATTERS OF THE HEART

Words by
© 2017 Martín H. Samuel – Malaika Music (ASCAP)

THOUGHT I'D LOST MY MIND IT'S TRUE
GOIN' OUT OF MY HEAD m'hm
THEN COME TO FIND IT'S YOU
AN' I'D REALLY LOST MY HEART INSTEAD

I WASTED MY DAYS AN' NIGHTS
WALKIN' THE FLOOR m'hm
NEVER KNOWIN' WHERE I WAS GOIN'
FEELIN' INSECURE BUT THEN

THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE SENT MY SENSES OFF THE CHART
WHEN YOU SPEAK TO ME YOUR WORDS WRAP AROUN' MY HEART

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
AN' WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

NOW I KNOW HOW THINGS STAND
GOIN' CRAZY OVER YOU m'hm
THEY WERE GETTIN' OUT OF HAND
BUT NOW I KNOW JUS' WHAT TO DO

THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE SENT EMOTIONS OFF THE CHART
AN' WHEN YOU SPEAK TO ME YOUR WORDS WRAP AROUN' MY HEART

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
AN' WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

IF I HAD A RICKSHAW I'D RIDE YOU ROUN' THE TOWN
OR IF I HAD A CIRCUS FOR YOU I'D PLAY THE CLOWN
IF I HAD A SAILBOAT I'D FLOAT YOU DOWN THE STREAM
AS I HAVE NONE OF THESE ALL I CAN DO IS - DREAM

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  THEY WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

The Breeze of Summer   

Words by Neil Ward

My tears you'll never see
My hands you'll never hold,
My laughter will slip past you
Like the Winter wind so cold.

Theres a sadness in your heart
Right where once I used to be,
The smile that you once cherished, love   
Is gone now for all to see.

Shrouded by a veil of mist
This earthly world cannot see,
My family is what I called you
By Heaven, Earth and Sea.

For when the breeze of Summer comes to
Caress your skin again,
My fingertips are on you, yeah
Until we meet again…… 

With the sunset of my passing
Please don't be sad for me, love
For I live on, in a place that's strong
Closer to you than to me

Heavens now where I reside
And I see your painful tears,
But my love is in your veins
Throughout the coming of years. 

For now I'm merely absent
Like the mist you now embrace,
But we will share our love again
I promise to touch your face.

For when the breeze of Summer comes to
Caress your skin again,
My fingertips are on you, yeah
Until we meet again……    

For when the breeze of Summer comes to
Caress your skin again,
My fingertips are on you, yeah
Until we meet again……

Until we meet again….
Until we meet again….


We Will Be

Words by Simon Chidwick

I am wondering what life might hold
How it might try to unfold
Where will you be in twenty years
Will it be smiles or will it be sad tears
I just don't know 

Let's all meet up when we're all fifty
Won't it be strange to see how we've grown old
Things to be told

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life

You'll probably be rich and famous
And I'll be nobody at all
You'll be brave and quite outrageous
Will I still be here living on my own?
I just don't know

Let's all meet up when we're all fifty
Won't it be strange to see how we've grown old
Things to be told

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life

If dreams they do come true
Then I will still be with you
If dreams they do come true
Then I will still be with you

Let's all meet up when we're all fifty
Won't it be strange to see how we've grown old
Things to be told

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life


Columbus

Words by Simon Chidwick

Growing up in such a small town
Dreaming big every day
Giant squids and a golden crown
Washed up in a smugglers bay

Stranger feeling strange in a strange land
Sights and sounds unknown
But it's not strange to hold your hand here
I feel like this could be home

I'm excited to discover
I'm excited to uncover

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door

I am jealous of Mr Armstrong
Wanted to be first on the moon
But at least I can be first at something
First to be loved by you

I'm excited to discover
I'm excited to uncover

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door

There was a man who once raced
To the South Pole but froze to death
And though he felt he failed us all
His photo hangs on the Heroes Wall
Oh, I wish I could be like Robert Scott

I'm excited to discover
I'm excited to uncover

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door


Coming Home

Words by Simon Chidwick

If we are lucky, we see each other twice a year
That's just not enough time for you I fear
We e-mail each other nearly every single day
I always tell you love will find a way

I always leave you in tears at the airport
My longing is as ugly as a witches wart
I hope one day we'll be together in Penang
Listening to B.A Robertson's classic 'Bang Bang'

I won't be - I won’t be alone
And I'll be coming home to....

I'll be coming home to you now and forever
I'll be coming home to you now for the better
So just like I used to say
You know love will find.........a way

Love will find you if you want to
Love will find you if you like
Love will find you if you want to
Love's like an apple, take a bite 

No more missing each other, no more waiting
No more soul searching or contemplating
Just to have you in my arms, well, that is just gravy
To get you here, I won't have to call the Royal Navy

I won't be - I won’t be alone
And I'll be coming home to....

I'll be coming home to you now and forever
I'll be coming home to you now for the better
I'll be coming home to you now and forever
I'll be coming home to you now for the better
So just like I used to say
You know love will find.........
