about

Hen Ree is the solo project of Richard Olsen, lead singer of the Swedish alternative rock band The Windupdeads. Fans of Olsen's previous work should expect the same quality of music in a completely different style, as he takes on the realm of electronic pop rock with his new release, "And When Everyone is Watching." Produced by long time friend and Windupdeads band mate Marcus von Boisman, "And When Everyone is Watching" is a compelling electronic album that connects the listener emotionally to Hen Ree's personal life.

Track Name: Simplicity
Lets's unlearn everything we know,
erase and deny old conversations
Less things to get hung up about,
more time to pan for our future

Chorus:
Promise me, simplicity, even when it's tough
Promise me, stay close to me, even when
i'm lost

I'm tired of keeping promises,
they're just words and words are overrated
i want them all out of my head,
so i can forget how to use them

(chorus)
Track Name: Arizona
Johnny was a big boy,
attached to a sidearm. Started to collect them,
never talked of God but his father
was a minister

Jenny was a good girl,
her parents always told her,
Pictures of rainbows,
never talked of love cause she never
really felt it.

Tommy was the bright one,
the pride and joy of everyone.
His brother always teased him,
he never got him back cause he knew it
would come back at him

Sarah was the strong one,
they said she was a time bomb.
She ran out of excuses,
they kicked her out of school cause they
couldn't see the progress

Daniel liked the silence,
when there was nobody around him.
Tired conversations,
never heard his voice cause he never
really liked it.
Track Name: Tonight After Dark
Its Warm right now but what about tonight.
Did you see what she wore,
is she doing alright,
We saw her leave, she left without a word.
her hair was a mess, she had a blue dotted dress

Leave a light on tonight after dark,
I'll turn up the volume,
We will stand by the window tonight,
hope the music will guide you.
We don't need no locks on our doors,
we have left that behind us
When dreams turn to dust,
will you come back to us,
When dreams turn to dust,
will you come back to us.

Through the woods, running out of time.
Got a dream to fulfill and a past to wipe out.
Lave a light on tonight after dark,
I'll turn up the volume.
We will stand by the window tonight
hope the music will guide you,
And we don't need no locks on our doors,
we have left that behind us.
When dreams turn to dust,
will you come back to us
When dreams turn to dust,
Will you come back to us.

Tonight, I leave a light out , to guide you
Track Name: Animals
We met a boy, out of control.
He said his dad, had won the war,
We sold our toys, the broken ones,
G.I Joe's and water guns

Chorus:
Just don't go alone, not too far, cause there are animals and its dark.
oh just let it go, just for once.
We are the animals/

Write a song, a violent one.
Quiet down, the neighbor's drunk.
Up on the hill, there's where she lived,
close to the edge.
She lives there still.

(chorus)

This is what i came up with
and this is who i am
This is what's inside of me
and this is who i am

(chorus)
Track Name: Phases
Night or day,
when they are dreaming I am wide awake.
I gave up coffee to get ride of this.
Things floating around,
Can't get them out
and everyone's telling me, just relax lay back and breath,
but something's distracting me
and it's not the noise, it's not the voices
outside my house.

Coming back to me every night,
what will happen on the other side.
I don't want to know,
i'm fine right here with you.
Same thing every night,
what will happen on the other side,
I don't want to know,
I'm fine right here with you

Is this a phase we're going through,
is there anything i can do.
Can someone just brake me lose.
Just a word of advice.
Count to a hundred and then back to one,
think of a beach or a waterfall.
Clear your head and then just go to sleep.
Try to count sheep, that's not for me,
that's not for me.

Coming back to me every night,
what will happen on the other side.
I don't want to know,
i'm fine right here with you.
Same thing every night,
what will happen on the other side,
I don't want to know,
I'm fine right here with you
Track Name: Under the Water
Meet me by the river,
I'll be there soon, I promise you.
And don't tell your brother,
come alone, only you.

you ran down the mountain side,
you found a place to sleep over night.
you thought about the things you left behind,
you forced yourself to sleep to pass the time.

Down, down by the water
you shaved my head,
looks great you said.

Down under the water, we held our breath,
you won you said

Long live the king and his queen, tonight the night worth remembering.
We thought about the things we left behind,
we forced ourselves to sleep to pass the time,
pass the time
Track Name: Tomorrow
My love Dry your eyes,
give me a smile now
A new day is coming,
filled with new moments.

The sun will be shining tomorrow.

Come on calm down,
there is nothing to cry about.
i'm right here with you,
Nothing's gonna hurt you.

The sun will be shining tomorrow
Track Name: They Come From the Ground
At night, they all came to life
and learn how to walk
Stumbling around, locate the
source of your smell
Coming tonight, straight from the fires of hell
time to get up and get out
So, if you fall and they catch you in the dark

Chorus:
Sing along, sing your heart out,
You might as well bleed,
Sing along, You're one of us now
You might as well bleed.
Sing along, sing your heart out,
you might as well bleed,
you might as well bleed,
for me

Run baby run
As fast as you can, don't slow down
it's too late to hide
They know where we both are by now
they came from the ground
Strait from the fires of hell
it's time to get up and get out and get out.
So, if i fail
to keep you safe
Track Name: Miracle Boy
Tidal waves and falling buildings,
fire men and happy endings.
Stranded sharks and nervous parents,
disappointing children crying.
There is a whole worlds out there,
let's get that clear.
There is a whole world out there,
I read it here

The miracle boy just stood up,
after seven years in a coma
Are you looking for a partner
(are you looking for someone).
Are you single, call this number,
(are you looking for some fun).

There is a whole world out there,
lets get that clear
There is a whole world out there,
I read it here
Track Name: Pretend to Jump
I never took the time,
to learn whats going on outside.
And the lies were spread around,
you gave me yours and i gave you mine.
Well the bitter neighbor said farewell,
to the ones who once were friends of hers.
And everybody turned around without a sound

Don't speak a word of this don't interfere.
Don't waste your breath and do not waste
your tears.
don't make a fool out of yourself like this.
Don't bring this up again while i am here.
These sorts of things means nothing, a waste of time for us all,
These sorts of things are boring,
And the older brother said come on,
let's find a roof that's high enough.
And when everybody's watching us,
pretend to jump

Don't speak a word of this don't interfere.
Don't waste your breath and do not waste
your tears.
don't make a fool out of yourself like this.
Don't bring this up again while i am here.

I've heard these stories a thousand times,
I still don't know what they mean,,
And now they feel so far away,
do they mean anything to me.

Don't speak a word of this don't interfere
Don't wast your breath and do not waste
your tears.
Don't make a fool out of yourself like this.
Don't bring up again while i am here
Track Name: Until the Next Time
She was in the 80's
always dressed in black.
I was told she was crazy,
but nobody told her that.
She saw the world through a window,
in the back of a subway train.
From station to station, next to me,next to me.

Chorus:
Until the next time, take care of yourself.
Until i see you again, take care of yourself.
Until the next time, take care of yourself.
Until i see you again, take care of yourself.

She told me to sit down
the first time we ever met.
She said God is a woman,
so tell me how do you feel about that.
Then she wrote with her finger,
on he window next to her.
It said now or never, then her phone number.

(chorus)

When they talk about me ,
in their brain dead sort of way.
Do you take them seriously, do you agree.
You know thy're my friends,
but i'm nothing like them.
It's only an act, it's just pretend
Just pretend.

(chorus)
