Helena's first single (II): B-side - The moon is a grain of sand ...

According to Adela Toplean, The moon is a grain of sand, B-side in the new single by Helena Josefsson, is almost-almost displaying a cosmic fusion with Nature and a careful playing with the equivocal Powers Out There.

The song talks about a strange search. Helena has been searching everywhere: behind a couch, in Paris the town of love, under the weeping willow, wearing skis, climbing the trees, scratching hands and knees, under another pillow, behind a bar, in the backseat of someone´s car, under the shallow hellos, between sheets, licking the dirt of the foreign streets, underneath green jello, ...

But what has she been searching? The Big Power (?) that rules: the moon is a grain of sand in Its hand.

Helena also feels as small as a mite in the universe. And it makes sense because of the love: she is made to exchange some heat for motion. She doesn´t care where that Power takes us as long as she has once been loved.





The moon is a grain of sand could be inspired by Sandy Mouche's Paris Promo Trip in May 2006.

I´ve been looking behind a couch
I´ve been searching in Paris the town of love
I´ve been looking for you
under the weeping willow



I´ve been looking, wearing skis
I´ve been climbing the trees,
scratching hands and knees
I´ve been looking for you
under another pillow



I´ve been looking behind a bar,
I´ve been searching the backseat
of someone´s car
I´ve been looking for you
under the shallow hellos



I´ve been looking between sheets
I´ve been licking the dirt
of the foreign streets
I´ve been looking for you
underneath green jello



I´m as small as a mite
in the universe
What difference do we make?
But I want to be a mite in love,
I want to exchange
some heat for motion
and if you breathe I´ll feel cool
(Let´s change!)

I´ve been looking behind a couch
I´ve been searching in Paris the town of love
I´ve been looking for you
under the weeping willow

I´ve been looking, wearing skis
I´ve been climbing the trees,
scratching hands and knees
I´ve been looking for you
under another pillow

The moon is a grain of sand
In your hand
You rule
But you don´t understand
(Yei yei yei yea)

I´ve been looking behind a bar,
I´ve been searching the backseat
of someone´s car
I´ve been looking for you
under the shallow hellos

I´ve been looking between sheets
I´ve been licking the dirt
of the foreign streets
I´ve been looking for you
underneath green jello

The moon is a grain of sand
In your hand
You rule
But you don´t understand
(Yei yei yei yea)

I´m as small as a mite
in the universe
What difference do we make?
But I want to be a mite in love,
I want to exchange
some heat for motion
and if you breathe I´ll feel cool
(Let´s change!)

The moon is a grain of sand
In your hand
You rule
But you don´t understand

I don´t care where it takes us
as long as I have once been loved
