Don't Bore Us - Get To The Chorus!

June Afternoon

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Didn't I tell you everything is possible
In this deja vu?
Try the river boat, the carousel, feed the pigeons, Bar-B-Q.
Look at all the people, happy faces all around.
Smiling, throwing kisses, busy making lazy sounds

It's a bright June afternoon, it never gets dark.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun.
Get your green, green tambourine, let's play in the park.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

Some folks are on blankets, slowly daydreaming
And reaching for their food.
Let's go buy an ice-cream and a magazine with an attitude
And put on a cassette, we can pretend that you're a star
Cos life's so very simple just like la-la-la

It's a bright June afternoon...

There's a painter painting his masterpiece.
There are some squirrels jumping in the trees,
There's a wide-eyed boy with a red balloon.
All my life I've longed for this afternoon.


You Don't Understand Me

Музыка: Per Gessle & Desmond Child
Слова: Per Gessle & Desmond Child


I've been up all night, you've been puttin' up a fight.
Seems like nothin' I say gets through.
How did this old bed fit a world between me and you.
We said "Goodnight" but the silence was so thick
You could cut it with a knife.
We've hit the wall again and there's nothin' I can do.
You're the one, yea, I've put all my trust in your hands.
C'mon and look in my eyes, here I am, here I am

You don't understand me, my baby.
You don't seem to know that I need you so much.
You don't understand me, my feelings, the reason I'm breathin', my love

The mornin' comes and you're reaching out for me
Just like everything's the same
And I let myself believe things are gonna change.
When you kiss my mouth and you hold my body close,
Do you wonder who's inside?
Maybe there's no way we could feel each other's pain.
Tell me why it gets harder to know where I stand.
I guess loneliness found a new friend, here I am

You don't understand me...
You don't seem to get me, my baby.
You don't really see that I live for your touch.
You don't understand me, my dreams or the things I believe in, my love.
You don't understand me.
You don't understand me.
Understand me.


The Look

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


1-2-3-4

Walking like a man,
Hitting like a hammer,
She’s a juvenile scam,
Never was a quitter,
Tasty like a raindrop,
She’s got the look.

Heavenly bound
Cause heaven’s got a number
When she’s spinning me around,
Kissing is a colour.
Her loving is a wild dog,
She’s got the look

She’s got the look.
She’s got the look.
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue.
When everything I’ll ever do I’ll do for you
And I go: la la la la la
She’s got the look

Fire in the ice
Naked to the t-bone
Is a lover’s disguise.
Banging on the head drum,
Shaking like a mad bull,
She’s got the look.

Swaying to the band,
Moving like a hammer
She’s a miracle man.
Loving is the ocean,
Kissing is the wet sand,
She’s got the look

She’s got the look.
She’s got the look.
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue.
When everything I’ll ever do I’ll do for you
And I go: la la la la la
She’s got the look

Walking like a man,
Hitting like a hammer,
She’s a juvenile scam,
Never was a quitter,
Tasty like a raindrop,
She’s got the look.

And she goes: na na na na na na na na.


Dressed For Success

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Tried to make it little by little,
Tried to make it bit by bit on my own.
Quit the job, the grey believers,
Another town where I get close to the bone.

Whatcha gonna tell your brother? - oh oh oh
Whatcha gonna tell your father? - I don’t know!
Whatcha gonna tell your mother? - Let me go...

I’m gonna get dressed for success
Shaping me up for the big time, baby.
Get dressed for success
Shaping it up for your love yea yea yea

I’m not afraid, a trembling flower,
I’ll feed your heart and blow the dust from your eyes
And in the dark things happen faster.
I love the way you sway your hips next to mine.

Whatcha gonna tell your brother? - oh oh oh
Whatcha gonna tell your father? - I don’t know!
Whatcha gonna tell your mother? - Let me go...

I’m gonna get dressed for success,
Hitting a spot for the big time, baby.
Get dressed for success
Shaping it up for your love

Look sharp!


Listen To Your Heart

Музыка: Per Gessle & Mats M.P. Persson
Слова: Per Gessle


I know there’s something in the wake of your smile.
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yea.
You’ve built a love but that love falls apart.
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you.
Listen to your heart there’s nothing else you can do.
I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile.
The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yea.
They’re swept away and nothing is what is seems,
The feeling of belonging to your dreams

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you.
Listen to your heart there’s nothing else you can do.
I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye

And there are voices that want to be heard.
So much to mention but you can’t find the words.
The scent of magic, the beauty that’s been
When love was wilder than the wind.


Dangerous

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


You pack your bag. You take control.
You’re moving into my heart and into my soul.
Get out of my way! Get out of my sight!
I won’t be walking on thin ice to get through the night.

Hey, where’s your work? What’s your game?
I know your business but I don’t know your name...

Hold on tight, you know she’s a little bit dangerous.
She’s got what it takes to make ends meet
The eyes of a lover that hit like heat.
You know she’s a little bit dangerous

You turn around, so hot and dry.
You’re hiding under a halo, your mouth is alive.
Get out of my way! Get out of my sight!
I’m not attracted to go-go deeper tonight.

Hey, what’s your word? What’s your game?
I know your business but I don’t know your name...

Hold on tight, you know she’s a little bit dangerous.
She’s got what it takes to make ends meet
The eyes of a lover that hit like heat.
You know she’s a little bit dangerous

She’s armed and she’s extremely dangerous...


It Must Have Been Love

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Lay a whisper on my pillow,
Leave the winter on the ground.
I wake up lonely, there's air of silence
In the bedroom and all around.
Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away.

It must have been love but it's over now.
It must have been good but I lost it somehow.
It must have been love but it's over now.
From the moment we touched 'til the time had run out.

Make-believing we're together,
That I'm sheltered by your heart.
But in and outside I've turned to water
Like a teardrop in your palm.
And it's a hard winter's day, I dream away.

It must have been love but it's over now,
It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without.
It must have been love but it's over now,
It's where the water flows,
It's where the wind blows.


Joyride

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I hit the road out of nowhere, I had to jump in my car
And be a rider in a love game following the stars,
Don’t need no book of wisdom, I get no money talk at all.

She has a train going downtown, she’s got a club on the moon
And she’s telling all her secrets in a wonderful balloon.
Oh she’s the heart of the funfair, she’s got me whistling her private tune.
And it all begins where it ends, and she’s all mine, my magic friend

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you.
C’mon join the joyride

She’s a flower, I can paint her, she’s a child of the sun,
We’re a part of this together, could never turn around and run.
Don’t need no fortune teller to know where my lucky love belongs oh no.
Cos it all begins again when it ends, and we’re all magic friends

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you.
C’mon join the joyride. Be a joyrider

I take you on a skyride, a felling like you’re spellbound.
The sunshine is a lady who ROX you like a baby.


Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


In a time where the sun descends alone,
I ran a long long way from home
To find a heart that’s made of stone.

I will try, I just need a little time
To get your face right out of my mind,
To see the world through different eyes

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go.
Every time you leave the room I feel
I’m fading like a flower

Tell me why?
When I scream there’s no reply,
When I reach out there’s nothing to find,
When I sleep I break down and cry

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go.
Every time you leave the room I feel
I’m fading like a flower

Fading like a rose, fading like a rose,
Beaten by the storm, talking to myself,
Getting washed by the rain, it’s such a cold cold town.


The Big L.

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


She’s the top, she’s got the world on a string.
She makes me boogie, makes me do anything yea yea.
- Hey now, touch the sky,
You’ve got a certain kind of look in your eyes.

Well, she’s a miracle, she’s all that I need
Like the water and the air that I breathe yea yea.
- Hey now, reach the sky,
There’s a certain kind of look in your smile.

And I know what love can do.
Yes I know what hearts can do

The big love is taking the wheel,
The big love goes head over heels,
The big lust, bring it into the small world,
The bigger, the better.
Big love, waiting to catch
The big one, head over heels,
The big one, bring it into the small world.
I’m building the big big love,
I’m building the big big love

It’s kinda strange, a bit mysterious,
I gotta take it oh so so serious.
- Hey now, touch the sky,
You’ve got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
It used to be so hard, so lonely at night,
Well, she’s my baby and I’m feeling alright.
- Hey now, move the sky,
There’s a certain kind of look in that smile.

When I’m making love with her.
When I’m making love to her yea

The big love is taking the wheel,
The big love goes head over heels,
The big lust, bring it into the small world,
The bigger, the better.
Big love, waiting to catch
The big one, head over heels,
The big one, bring it into the small world.
I’m building the big big love,
I’m building the big big love

It has to be a big thing. It’s bringing me to my knees.
Has to be a big thing, big thing, ya know what I’m saying...


Spending My Time

Музыка: Per Gessle & Mats M.P. Persson
Слова: Per Gessle


What’s the time? Seems it’s already morning.
I see the sky, it’s so beautiful and blue.
The TV’s on but the only thing showing is a picture of you.

Oh I get up and make myself some coffee.
I try to read a bit but the story’s too thin.
I thank the Lord above that you’re not here
To see me in this shape I’m in

Spending my time, watching the days go by.
Feeling so small, I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you think of me too.
I’m spending my time

I try to call but I don’t know what to tell you.
I leave a kiss on your answering machine.
Oh help me please, is there someone
Who can make me wake up from this dream?

Spending my time, watching the days go by.
Feeling so small, I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you are missing me too.
I’m spending my time, watching the sun go down.
I fall asleep to the sound of "Tears of a clown,"
A prayer gone blind.
I’m spending my time

My friends keep telling me: Hey, life will go on,
Time will make sure I’ll get over you.
This silly game of love - you play, you win only to lose.


How Do You Do!

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I see you comb your hair and gimme that grin.
It's making me spin now, spinnin' within.
Before I melt like snow, I say Hello - How do you do!

I love the way you undress now. Baby begin.
Do your caress, honey, my heart's in a mess.
I love your blue-eyed voice, like Tiny Tim shines thru.
How do you do!

Well, here we are crackin' jokes in the corner of our mouths
And I feel like I'm laughing in a dream.
If I was young I could wait outside your school
Cos your face is like the cover of a magazine.

How do you do, do you do, the things that you do.
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do! Did it ever make sense to you to say Bye Bye Bye?

I see you in that chair with perfect skin.
Well, how have you been, baby, livin' in sin?
Hey, I gotta know, did you say Hello - How do you do?

Well, here we are spending time in the louder part of town
And it feels like everything's surreal.
When I get old I will wait outside your house
Cos your hands have got the power meant to heal.

How do you do...


Almost Unreal

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Babe, come in from the cold and put that coat to rest.
Step inside, take a deep breath, and do what you do best.
Yes, kick off them shoes and leave those city streets.
I do believe love came our way,
And fate did arrange for us to meet.

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you've got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it's almost unreal. It's almost unreal.

Hey, we can't stop the rain, let's find a place by the fire.
Sometimes I feel, strange as it seems,
You've been in my dreams all my life.

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me...

It's a crazy world out there.
Let's hope our prayers are in good hands tonight.


Sleeping In My Car

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I'll tell you what I've done
I'll tell you what I'll do
Been driving all nite just to get close to you
Baby Babe - I'm moving so fast
You'd better come on.

The moon is alright
The freeway's heading south
My heart is going Boom!
There's a strange taste in my mouth
Baby Babe - I'm moving real fast
So try to hold on
Try to hold on!

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you
Staying in the back seat of my car making up.

So come out tonight
I'll take you for a ride
This steamy ol' wagon
The radio is getting wild
Baby Babe - we're moving so fast
I try to hang on
Try to hang on!

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you
Staying in the back seat of my car making love, oh yea!

Sleeping in my car - I will possess you
Sleeping in my car - certainly bless you
Laying in the back seat of my car making up.

The night is so pretty and so young
The night is so pretty and so young
So very young...

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you
Staying in the back seat of my car making love to you.

Sleeping in my car - I will possess you
Sleeping in my car - certainly bless you
Laying in the back seat of my car making up.

I will undress you
I will undress you.
The night is so pretty and so young.


Crash! Boom! Bang!

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


My Papa told me to stay out of trouble
"When you've found your man, make sure he's for real!"
I've learned that nothing really lasts forever
I sleep with the scars I wear that won't heal
They won't heal.

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That's the call, that's the game and the pain stays the same.

I'm walking down this empty road to nowhere
I pass by the houses and blocks I once knew.
My Mama told me not to mess with sorrow
But I always did, and Lord, I still do
I'm still breaking the rules
I kick it up
I kick it down.

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That's my real middle-name
It has always been the same
That's the call, that's the game and the pain stays the same.

I still feel the heat
Slowly fallin' from the sky
And the taste of the kissing
Shattered by rain
Comin' tumblin' from behind
And the wild holy war.
I kick it up
I kick it down

And every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the roses dying on the floor
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That's the call, that's the game and the pain stays the same
That's my real middle-name
It has always been the same.
Oh Yea Oh Yea Oh Yea Uh-huh
Been the same, been the same
It has always been the same.

Vulnerable

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Everywhere I look I see her smile
Her absent-minded eyes
And she has kept me wondering for so long
How this thing could go wrong.

It seems to me that we are both the same
Playing the same game
But as darkness falls this true love falls apart
Into a riddle of her heart.

She's so vulnerable, like china in my hands
She's so vulnerable and I don't understand
I could never hurt the one I love
She's all I've got
But she's so vulnerable
Oh so vulnerable.

Days like these no one should be alone
No heart should hide away
Her touch is gently conquering my mind
There's nothing words can say.

She's coloured all the secrets of my soul
I've whispered all my dreams
But just as nighttime falls this vision falls apart
Into a riddle of her heart, yea.

She's so vulnerable, like china in my hands
She's so vulnerable and I don't understand
I could never hurt someone I love
She's all I've got
But she's so vulnerable
Oh so vulnerable.

Don't hide your eyes...


She Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Музыка: Per Gessle & Mats M.P. Persson
Слова: Per Gessle


We grew up together, we've been here forever.
Barefoot in the summer, cold in stormy weather.
She taught me all there is, like magic and love,
Lots of forgotten words

But now, she doesn't live here anymore.
She's off and she's gone, she doesn't live here anymore.
I'm sorry that's all there is to it, I'm sorry that's all

She dressed just like a painter, a female street Picasso
And I, I will remember the heaven in her laughter.
And the scent of her sweet perfume
When we made love under an August moon

But now, she doesn't live here anymore.
She's off and she's gone, she doesn't live here anymore.
She's gone since long, so long, she doesn't live here anymore.
She took off and left home, she doesn't live here anymore.
I'm sorry that's all there is to it, I'm sorry that's all.
That's all.


I Don't Want to Get Hurt

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


In everything I see you appear with me,
How come? How come?
And everything I do involves you too.
We are like one.

In my life there has been so many changes
And I don't want to be left out in the rain

I don't want to get hurt, I've done my time.
All I want from you is to tell the truth.
I don't want to get hurt no more this time.
I don't want to go blind and find
It's falling apart all the time

In the middle of a dream you are there for me,
Your face, your lips.
But there's no way you can tell
Cos I hide it really well, so well.

In my life there has been loving and lying
And I don't need another reason to cry

I don't want to get hurt...

I don't want to go blind and find
I'm falling apart one more time.
