about

Magnus Berg Oslo, Kingdom of Norway

The blues literally reaches across all boundaries. Sensational 18-year old Norwegian guitarist Magnus Berg began playing at seven, performed onstage at 12 and played Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago at 17. During his family’s yearly sojourns to the warmth of Florida, and as touring US artists would pass through Norway, Berg began to catch the eye of many in the Blues community at a very young age. ... more

Track Name: Cut Me Loose
CUT ME LOOSE
© Magnus Berg
Never felt true love
I never owned a dime
Hey babe I ain't lazy
But dreaming ain't no crime
Out on this road
I'm bound to the blues
Wasn't born the lucky one
I never got to choose
I'm out here walking on a string
Won't you cut me loose
Every time I get home
I wanna pack my clothes and leave again
All cramped up in the back seat
My six string is my only friend
Out here I need money again
Won't you cut me loose
Four or five kids at home
Mother raisin' them all alone
I'm out playin' with my band
Hundred dollars right in my hand
Hundred dollars don't get you too far
Right down to the nearest bar
Cut me loose
Track Name: One Way to Please You
One Way to Please You
© Magnus Berg, Kirsten Thien

If there was one way to please you
Lord knows I'd be your man
If there was one way to please you
Lord knows I'd be your man
But you keep me guessing
God knows I don't understand

Well if I knew your favorite song
I'd memorize every word
If I knew your favorite song
I'd memorize every word
But I can't figure you out
Not even sure I should

You like to keep me guessing
That's the thrill of your game
Yeah you keep me guessing
Til I don't even know my name
Well I follow you around
You got me anything but tame
You've got me wild baby, Ow!

If there was one way to please you
Lord knows I'd be your man
If there was one way to please you
Lord knows I'd be your man
But you keep me guessing
God knows I don't understand
Track Name: Drifting
DRIFTING
© Magnus Berg
The way you treat me
Just ain't right
I can't eat
I can't sleep at night
I'm drifting
Drifting away from your heart
In my life now pretty baby
Loving you seems to be the hardest part
Just like I'm swimming
Against the stream
You don't care baby
You don't know how I feel
I'm drifting
Drifting away from your soul
Wasted too much time on you baby
Gotta pack my things and go
I don't know where to go
And I don't really care
As long as you're not in my life baby
I'll go anywhere
I'm drifting
Drifting away from your pretty eyes
The time we spent together
Were based on only lies
Ain't no use in runnin'
Ain't no use to hide
Anywhere I go baby you're always
By my side
I'm drifting
Drifting away from your heart
In my life now pretty baby
Loving you seems to be the hardest part
Track Name: When You Leave Me
WHEN YOU LEAVE ME
© Magnus Berg
I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
When you leave me here to die

Just gonna sit here and look at your picture
That was taken a while ago
I'm gonna think about how much I miss you
And how much I love you so

I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
When you leave me here to die

Just gonna sit here and look out my window
I'm gonna look at the view so fine
I'm gonna think about the days when you loved me
And the days when you were all mine

I'm gonna cry
Well I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
When you leave me here to die

I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
I'm gonna cry
When you leave me here to die
Track Name: When It's Gone (feat. Kirsten Thien)
When It’s Gone It’s Gone
© Magnus Berg, Erik Boyd, Kirsten Thien

If I hit the grave before tomorrow
I will say this while I still got time
The time we spend together
Is time I will treasure
Cause When it’s gone it’s gone
And that’s no lie

I look at you with love that is unending
Tomorrow I may up and change my mind
When it’s gone it’s gone
I must be moving on
I love you, baby, now and that’s no lie

So many ways so many ways
We try to understand it
So many ways so many ways
We still misunderstand it
But that’s alright

Wisdom came upon me in the nighttime
Flash of hope was gone before I woke
I can chase it all I want
But one thing life has taught me
When it’s gone it’s gone and that’s no lie

So many ways so many ways
We try to understand it
So many ways so many ways
We try to understand it
So many ways so many ways
We still misunderstand it
But that’s alright

Well I'm driving north
On the two seventy five
Well I'm driving north
On the two seventy five
Well I'm going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Well I'm sitting in the back seat
I'm sitting in the back seat
Tryin' to write a good song
Try to write a good song

Well I'm going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
We're gonna have a good time
We're gonna have a good time
We'll play the blues all night
We're gonna have a good time
Well I'm going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Going to Saint Pete
Track Name: One Too Many
ONE TOO MANY
© Magnus Berg
Last night my baby showed up
She wanted to know what was going down
She heard a thing or two bout' me and her friend
Sneaking around
I had one too many
One too many
I had one too many but
I won't do it again
I got down on my knees I said baby please
Baby please don't go
She said I'm not leaving but there's the door
And your clothes will be on the lawn

I had one too many
I had one too many
I had one too many but
I won't do it again

I had one too many
I had a one too many
I had a one too many
I had a one too many
I had one too many but
I won't do it again
