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...


Fingertips

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


You're sliding down a dream, o yea.
Where nights are born in blue, that's the truth.
You're swimming in a stream, o yea.
Fish are jumping too, next to you.
Suddenly you notice someone's at the door,
You could swear you've been through this all before.

Then she runs her fingertips through your hair.
Your life has just begun.
Her fingers, they are everywhere.
You're floating light like air, leaving the ground
And she shines on just like the sun.

You're gazing at the sky, o my.
The stars are out tonight, shining bright.
You're waving to a cloud, bye-bye.
You're drowning in the smile of his eyes.
Suddenly you feel there's no time for a deal
Though a voice tells you it's for real.

And she runs her fingertips through your hair
And life has just begun.
Her fingers, there and everywhere.
You're floating light like air, leaving the ground.
She-she shines on just like the sun.

It's just a sunny afternoon.
Somebody's singing songs of love, child.
You love a lazy afternoon once in a while.


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.


The Heart Shaped Sea

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Babe it's time to tell me that it's over,
Tell me that it's over, it's plain to see.
And this time we won't be starting over,
No crying on your shoulder into the heart shaped sea.

Oh you've been a-running from our door
And you've been enchanted by the gracious voice of love.

Babe it's time to look me in the eyes,
Time to say goodbye, it's clear to me.
And this time I won't let you down,
You can turn around, I'll set you free.

Oh you've been a-sailing from our shore
And you've been enchanted by someone from afar.

Babe it's time to gather all the harvest,
To pray before the winter and sail the heart shaped sea.

Oh you've been a-running from my love
And you've been enchanted by the powers up above.


The Rain

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I was raised the northern way
And my father had a northern name,
I did my crying out in the pouring rain.

And a season turned into another one,
I found a heart bright like the morning sun.
He touched my lips, so softly, with his fingertips.

But I kept the rain falling down on me
All the time, all the time.
I kept the rain falling down on me
All the time, all the time.

And some things in life won't ever change,
There's a smell of a rusty chain
And of love disappearing like an aeroplane.

I've kept the rain falling down on me
All the time, all the time.
I've kept the rain falling down on me
All the time, all the time, all of the time.


Keep Me Waiting

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I hit the coast with the faith of a preacherman.
I saw a ghost with a face like a madman.
I had this dream I was sleeping at the Royal Ball.

I hit the streets, hey watch me in the monitor!
I saw a clone who looked just like a senator.
I checked the clock, I felt that it was time to go go go.
Then came you.

Why did you keep me waiting so long?
Why did you keep me waiting so long?
Why did you keep me waiting so long?

I was a spy, I was captured by the enemies.
I made a million selling secret fantasies.
I saw my love wasted in a pale grey zone.

I was the quake shaking every monument.
I had to fi-find out what all the money meant.
I checked the sun, I knew that it was time to go go go.
Then came 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.


Cinnamon Street

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Growing up on Cinnamon Street.
Everywhere you look there are lots of people to meet,
It's seven o'clock, the breakfast treat.
Now the schoolbus is here, hurry up and grab a seat.
All the dreams are tiny ones,
Another week has just begun on Cinnamon Street.

There was a girl on Cinnamon Street,
The same age as me, we shared the curiosity.
I won her heart cos I could play guitar.
I promised her heaven at once and later all the stars.
But it all remained the same
Cos things can never change on Cinnamon Street.

I can hear my heartbeat the very first time we made love,
Life was a lazy rest in the sun.
Later we went dancing, staying up all night long -
Playing all our favourite songs, Cinnamon songs:
Oh oh na na na na na.

I say goodbye to Cinnamon Street.
Springtime is here and the air is so dry and sweet.
I walk in a cloud, the smell of cinnamon bread,
It's in my blood since the day I was born 'til I wake up... dead.
And the sun is smiling gently,
A funny shade of red, Cinnamon Street.

I still feel my heartbeat the very first time we made love,
Life was a lazy day in the sun.
Later we went dancing, hanging out all night long -
Singing all our favourite songs, Cinnamon songs:
Oh oh na na na na na na.


Never Is A Long Time

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


You build it up and tear it down,
There's no reason to follow you.
You left the song without a sound,
You left the story I made for you.
Softly angels bow and cry in the stillness of the night.

Never is a long time - goodbye. No answers for the asking.
It's a long time - goodbye. No mercy for the aching.
It's a long time - oh I see no light on the forsaken.
Never is a long time - goodbye.
Let's spend the night when this dream has come to an end.

Sometime you laugh, sometimes you cry,
And yes, I've cried over you.
You've left me blind in paradise.
You've left me hungering for the touch of you.
Snow white angels run and hide in the blackness of the night.

Never is a long time...


Silver Blue

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


I got to get a message through,
I don't know where we're going.
I wrap my arms around your naked shoulders,
Take cover for the night.

I see you in the morning rain,
Oh step inside and lay beside me.
Tender can you close my eyes and blind me,
Oh give me just a smile...

Before I fade to silver, Silver Blue for you.
Before I fade to silver, Silver Blue for you.

I've turned into The Broken One
Who lost the inspiration.
I want to give you all my love like water
To a blood red rose.
The Passion - I can't deal with her.
The Pain - well, I can do without him.
And this is like the milky way, an ocean
That only grows and grows.

And babe I fade to silver, Silver Blue for you.
I turn and fade to silver, Silver Blue for you.

I wrap my arms around your naked shoulders,
Take cover for the night.


Here Comes The Weekend

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Every shape of every word you say
That breaks the silence of an ordinary day.
Every look that seems to mystify,
Every single smile that spins me to the sky.

It makes me wanna run, it makes me wanna hide.
Cos you're the only one that makes me come alive.
It's getting closer now and darker by the hour.

It only goes to show that here it comes, here comes the weekend
And I'm on my own again with a Saturday in the rain.
Here it comes, here comes the weekend.
The fine line from pleasure to pain
Is making me cry. When will I see you again?

Every breath, every vision you make.
Every chance in love you love to take.
Every move that seems to alter my world.
Every dream I've had about this boy and this girl.

It makes me wanna run, it makes me wanna hide
Cos you're the only one that makes my love alive
And time is running fast into a new goodbye.

It only goes to show that here it comes, here comes the weekend,
Another walk down that lonely lane,
Another Sunday that feels the same.
Here it comes, here comes the weekend.
The fine line from pleasure to pain
Is making me cry. When will I see you again?


So Far Away

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle & Hasse Huss


In the coldest time of year, darkness all around my heart.
I was alone but didn’t fear to wander in the light of stars.
In the bright and silent night, winds would knock and disappear.
Still I felt the feeling near, like the first time you were ever here

You’re so far away, so far away,
You left me, you told me you would stay.
You never said goodbye and I’ll keep asking why,
I keep on asking how, oh come unto me now

I have breathed the morning air, I have heard the four winds blow.
I was weary but prepared to follow down this lonely road.
In the room where lovers sleep, winds would knock and disappear.
Still I felt the music near, like the first time we were ever here

You’re so far away, so far away,
You left me, you told me you would stay.
You never said goodbye and I keep wondering why,
I keep on wondering how, oh come inside me now.


Come Back (Before You Leave)

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Never looked back on a love affair.
I never spent minutes on history, it made me sad,
It made me so sad.
And in no time no time at all
A change has begun and the name is You, I feel strange,
You've made my life strange.
Cos baby when you get close to me
I say there's a certain chemistry.

Come back before you leave.
I haven't got room for a broken heart.
Come back before you leave.
You shouldn't go at all, you shouldn't go at all.

So many years and so many nights,
I still can recall oh the way that you move when you dance,
Do you want to dance?
We've had our habits and attitudes,
You make me remember the power when everything's right,
Please stay the night.
Cos baby when you get close to me
There's something about you I really need.

Come back before you leave...

Babe, come back before you leave,
I'll be the air for you when you breathe,
I'll be the rising sun.
Close the door, let's make love,
All God's angels sing above
Into the rising sun.


Things Will Never Be The Same

Музыка: Per Gessle
Слова: Per Gessle


Lay it down, pull my heart to the ground.
Time’s getting cold, now the leaves all turn hard and blue.
And I know when I gaze to the sun, no place to hide
I got nowhere to run from you, away from you.

Hold me now girl, I don’t know when,
When we will ever meet again.
That was then, baby, this is now,
I try to get over you.

Losing you... Things will never be the same.
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again things would never be...

In your hand, babe, I don’t understand,
You’ve got the eyes of a child but you hurt
Like a man always do, always do.

Touch me now girl, I don’t know when,
When we will ever meet again.
That was then, baby, this is now,
Time won’t get over you.

Losing you... Things will never be the same.
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again things would never be...


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.


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.
