about

Here's your chance to pre-order the new album "Tales from the feverworld":

Buy the track for 20€ in Europe or 25€ for the rest of the world.

Once you hit "buy" there's a chance to "include a message to Martin Praetorius."
There, let me know your shipping address and I will send a copy to you when it's out. This includes a complete download of the album. Deal? :)

You can also send this as a gift to somebody else. Then you would have to type in the address of the person you want to send it to.
Note: The physical album will be out early in 2017!

This is the "contributers-version" of "Anywhere but here", co-written in Sisimiut, Greenland in April 2016 with Sofia Ekberg from Sweden.

lyrics

ANYWHERE BUT HERE
(Sofia Ekberg/Martin Praetorius)

I can't remember what love is like
This place has changed, ain't it funny how time flies
Fading memories of you and I
You got to put a lid on your heart, sometimes

My bag is packed and I'm on my way
I've been trying so hard to keep the blues at bay
Don't know the reason why I never stay
There's got to be a place for my heart, someday

Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
My mind is calm
Facing the storm
Anywhere but here

Here on the road I see it all so clear
All my longing, my regrets and my dark fears
Itching loneliness is hard to bear
There's got to be a place for my heart, somewhere

Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
My mind is calm
Facing the storm
Anywhere but here

And from dark night, into twilight
Things don't seem so real
I open my eyes, I see the sunrise
I'm behind the wheel

Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
My mind is calm
Facing the storm
Anywhere but here

I can't remember what love is like
You got to put a lid on your heart, sometimes
