A Thing About You

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I pick up the phone I'm dialin' your number
While I pray you're at home. At home and alone
Cos I can't function on my own
And I'll never stop believin'

The reapin' is done, you are the one
The radio is on but the sound is all gone
And I want to walk out in the sun
But lately that's been very hard to do

I've got a thing about you
And I don't really know what to do
Cos I've got a thing about you, hey you

I pick up the phone I'm dialin' that number
And my heart like a stone waits for the tone
"- Oh I can't make it on my own
And I'll never stop believin'"

I know what is right and this is so wrong
Alone in my bed, better off on my own
The TV is on but the colours are gone
And lately you've been paintin' my world blue

I've got a thing about you
And I don't really care what you do
I've got a thing about you, yea you

Lately you've been paintin' my world blue
I've got a thing about you
And I don't really know what to do
I've got a thing about you
Hopin' this story cuts through
Yea, I've got a thing about you
A thing about you.


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.


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 it seems,
The feeling of belonging to your dreams.

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.


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.


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.

I'm spending my time, my time.
Bed's too big without you, honey.


Queen Of Rain

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


In that big big house there are fifty doors
And one of them leads to your heart.
In the time of spring I passed your gate
And tried to make a start.
All I knew was the scent of sea and dew
But I've been in love before, how about you?

There's a time for the good in life,
A time to kill the pain in life,
Dream about the sun you queen of rain.

In that big old house there are fifty beds
And one of them leads to your soul.
It's a bed of fear, a bed of threats,
Regrets and sheets so cold.
All I knew your eyes so velvet blue,
I've been in love before, how about you?

There's a time for the good in life...

It's time to place your bets in life,
I've played the loser's game of life,
Dream about the sun you queen of rain.

Time went by as I wrote your name in the sky,
Fly fly away, bye bye.


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.


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...


You Dont 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.


Wish I Could Fly

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Halfway through the night
I wake up in a dream
Echoes in my head
Make every whisper turn into a scream

I dreamed I could fly out in the blue
Over this town, following you
Over the trees, subways and cars
I'd try to find out who you really are

In the middle of the night
Cool sweatin' in my bed
Got the windows open wide
Thinkin' about all the things you said

I wish I could fly out in the blue
Over this town following you
I'd fly over rooftops, the great boulevards
To try to find out who you really are
Who you really are

I wish I could fly now
Wish I could fly now
Wish I could fly now

I wish I could fly around and around
Over this town, the dirt on the ground
I'd follow your course of doors left ajar
To try to find out who you really are.


Anyone

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Anyone who have a love close to this
Knows what I'm saying
Anyone who wants a dream to come true
Knows how I'm feeling

All I can think of is you and me
Doing the things I wanna do
All I imagine is heaven on earth
I know it's you

Anyone who ever kissed in the rain
Knows the whole meaning
Anyone who ever stood in the light
Needs no explaining

But everything more or less appears so meaningless
Blue and cold
Walking alone through the afternoon traffic
I miss you so

Anyone who felt like I do
Anyone who wasn't ready to fall
Anyone who loved like I do
Knows it never really happens at all
It's over when it's over
What can I do about it
Now that it's over

Everything more or less is looking so meaningless
And fades to grey
Lying awake in an ocean of teardrops
I float away

Anyone who ever felt like I do
Anyone who wasn't ready to fall
Anyone who loved like I do
Knows it never really happens at all
It's over when it's over
What can I do about it
Now it's all over


Salvation

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I can barely remember my past
Everything seems to disappear so fast
But I recall being jealous and alone
Gazing at the dreams going by

I started my life when you knocked on the door
Found something inside I didn't dare to ignore
Now I do believe in flowers on the moon
I'll swim beside the golden tide

You crashed by the gate, captured my fate
Salvation
My eyes couldn't see, I hardly breathed
I was diving so deep
Salvation

I'm down in the study holding on to my luck
Will you still love me when I call you up?
I gave you my body the power over me
Come on bring out the best in me

You crashed by the gate, captured my fate
Salvation
My eyes couldn't see, I hardly breathed
My heart was asleep
Salvation

Some will get broken
Others will get lucky like me meeting you
Don't pass me by

You crashed by the gate, captured my fate
Salvation
My eyes couldn't see, I hardly breathed
I was down on my knees
Salvation

Some will get broken
Others will get lucky like me meeting you
Don't pass me by
Don't pass me by

I found salvation oh yea
You bring me salvation
I found salvation


Milk And Toast And Honey

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Milk and toast and honey make it sunny on a rainy Saturday he-he-hey
Milk and toast, some coffee take the stuffiness
Out of days you hate, you really hate
Slow morning news pass me by
I try not to analyse but didn't he blow my mind this time
Didn't he blow my mind?

(Here he comes) To bring a little lovin', honey
To take away the hurt inside is everything that matters to me
Is everything I want in life

Milk and toast and honey.
Ain't it funny how things sometimes look so clear and feel so near
The dreams I dream, my favorite wishful thinkin'
Oh he's bookmarked everywhere, everywhere
True love might fall from the sky
You never know what to find, but didn't he blow my mind this time
Didn't he blow my mind?

(Here he comes) To bring a little lovin' honey
To take away the pain inside is everything that matters to me
Is everything I want from life
(Here he comes) Oh lay a little lovin' honey
To feel you're gettin' close to me is everything that matters to me
Is everywhere I want to be.


Breathe

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I've got to come down, I've been awake for far too long
My eyes look torn, they were so strong
I wore the crown, I wrote the song, now it's fading
My heart was open like a window to a summer breeze

I breathed your love, I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed your love until I felt the pain
And like rain it slipped away

I tried to find out what love was really all about
Behind the curtain waits the sky
It's rare I feel enough to cry, I'm drying up inside
My life was open like a window to the summer breeze

I breathed your love, I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed your love until I met the pain
And like rain it slipped away, just like a little rain

I breathed your love and nothing stayed the same
Yes, I breathed your love and filled my heart in vain
Cos like rain it slipped away, just like rain it swept away


The Weight Of The World

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Sunday morning, I'm still hiding in bed
Listening to the rhythm of the rain above my head
And all that I have said I sure saved a lot for you
But what could I do?
If I'd been talking to the wall it wouldn't make any difference to you
That's the art of being you

I think I carry the weight of the world
Sometimes you lose
The weight of the world
Sometimes you cry

I kiss your smile, I wish you'd stay the night
I put my arms around your golden head and turn on the lights
Oh I love to watch your eyes when I make love to you

Wait, little world
Sometimes you lose
The weight of the world
Sometimes you cry, sometimes you cry

The weight of the world
Sometimes you lose
The weight of the world
Sometimes you cry, sometimes you cry


It Hurts

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Can you tell me where it leads when it's never ending?
Can you tell me where to go when no one's home?

And I know you know it hurts
It hurts to be alone
You're on your own on a one-way train going down

Can you tell me what to say when there's no one listening?
Can you show me what to do when all is done?

And I know you know it hurts
It hurts to be alone
The plan has gone wrong like a runaway train going down
Going down, going down, down, going down


See Me

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


With the moon and the sun in his eyes he's arrivin'
And I don't know what I'd do without him
I've got life suddenly

See, see me. I've got nothing to hide
See me. I've got nothing to hide
See me

I'm leavin' my heart in the palm of his hand so gently
I know he knows that I love him though I've never said
Is there an easy way?

See, see me. I've got nothing to hide
See me. I've got nothing to hide
See me

Comin' home, I'm comin' home
It feels like I'm comin' home
Comin' home, I'm comin' home

See me...


Every Day

Музыка: Marie Fredriksson
Слова: Per Gessle


Every day I see him coming
Every day he walks on by
Life used to be so plain and simple
Before he came into my life

Every night I keep on dreaming
Every night I take him home
We always go to bed together
I always wake up all alone

Oh it's strange, so strange
What he's doing to me
Oh it's strange so strange
Did this ever happen to you
The way it has happened to me
The way it just happened to me

Every day outside my window
Always minutes close to eight
I wish he stayed a little longer
But his bus is never late

Every night we're dancing slowly
I play the music he adores
Like Sinatra then we're talking
All important things for sure

Oh it's strange so strange
What he's doing to me
Oh it's strange so strange
Did this ever happen to you
The way it has happened to me
The way it just happened to me

Oh it's strange so strange
What he's doing to me
Oh so strange real strange
Did this ever happen to you
The way it has happened to me
The way it just happened to me
