Hotblooded

Music by: Marie Fredriksson & Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

You know I’m hotblooded, baby...

Get on up and kick it all the systems are ready to go.
Well, are you ready or not? Hey, I gotta know!
Baby, lay down the blues and let those guitars bleed.
I’m everything you wanted, I’m all you ever need

Cos I’m hotblooded, hotblooded,
I need your lovin’, I need your love so bad

Flash all the lights, I’ll be a camera tonight.
I’ll snap the look on your face when I’m squeezing you tight.
Yea, sisters o’ soul, we gotta burn this old house down.
Keep on beatin’ those drums, keep on pumpin’ up that sound,
Yea yea yea yea yea

Hotblooded, I’m hotblooded,
I need your lovin’, I need your love so bad.
I’m hotblooded, hotblooded,
You gotta know it, I need a shot of love so bad

I stay up late where the night’s alive.
No sleep at all I work nine to five.
It’s honey do that and honey do this: "Can I call you home?",
"Can I call you home?" "Can I call?" - you can call me miss...

Joyride

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: 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.

Listen To Your Heart

Music by: Per Gessle & Mats M.P. Persson
Words by: 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.

Shadow Of A Doubt

Music by: Per Gessle & Mats M.P. Persson
Words by: Per Gessle

I heard your heart, you held it close to me.
The wild embrace, the silent sea,
A whisper of imagery for Lovers Supreme

But now I’m lost in the crowd,
No shadow of a doubt it’s all over now,
No shadow of a doubt

You changed the dream. You changed the scenery,
The tender touch, the urge to breathe,
There under a lovelit sun what’s lost could be found

But now, no trace of a sound,
No shadow of a doubt, I’m faraway bound.
No shadow of a doubt.

(I Could Never) Give You Up

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

I’ve been hiding, lost in the love of another.
I’ve followed the moon and a song
And I thought it would take me forever
To find a place where I belong.
I watch a rainbow rise.
I give you all I’ve got

I could never give you up, the way you make my love shine.
I could never give you up, the way you make true love shine

I believe you when you say you don’t want to be lonely.
I’ll carry your heart like a bridge
When you need all the time
You can find to get the hurt out of your mind.
I’ll watch the rain go by
And give you all I’ve got

Cause I could never give you up...

View From A Hill

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Raging waves sweep this heavy heart.
Cold is the colour of the dark.
Find a byway and climb that hill,
Watch the thunder cast a spell.

What did you gain from love? - Don’t ask me!
All for the sweetest thrill...

I see a view from a hill - oh oh.
I see it perfectly clear
And I cry for the dreams that you kill - oh oh,
View from a hill, and it’s only a moment away

Love is a rainfall, hard on the head,
No escape though you’re soaking wet.
Leave me blinded by your light.
Leave me stranded alone tonight.

What did you gain from love? - Don’t ask me!
All for the cheapest thrill...

I see a view from a hill -- oh oh.
I see it perfectly clear
And I cry for the dreams that you kill -- oh oh,
View from a hill, and it’s only a motion away.

Half A Woman, Half A Shadow

Music by: Marie Fredriksson
Words by: Per Gessle

Daylight is breaking again.
I hide in the dark. I’m watching the rain.
You’re out of touch. You’re out of reach.
What can I say, I never wanted it this way.

Love sleeps all alone. The cold telephone,
I know the heart. Yes, I know the kind.
The kisses of fire, turning to grey.
I never wanted it this way. I always wanted you to stay

Wash my pain away, cause I’m half a woman, half a shadow

Love always change with the trees,
The spring and the leaves, the waves on the sea.
Wilder than light the wind in your eyes led me astray.
I never wanted it this way. I always wanted you to stay.

Oh I need you, yes I need you.
Give me a reason to believe.

Dangerous

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: 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...

Chances

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Hear my call, here and everywhere
I’ve been walking the streets in despair.
One more fire turns a shade of grey,
One more tear is lost in the rain.

And I say that I love you. I say that I need you.
Baby I leave you a sign of desire.
No shadow will haunt you, no heart will desert you,
No one will hurt you, no space or no time

Got to got you got to got to take your chances on me,
Like the river will lead the water to the sea, take on me,
Take your chances on me.
Don’t ever let it be. Don’t ever let it be

There’s a night when you close your eyes
Around a dream that shines like the sun.
Everyone knows it’s beautiful,
Tell me why you want to dream it alone.

And I say that I love you, I say that I need you,
Baby I leave you the lines in my palm.
No darkness will get you, no heart will desert you,
Nothing can hurt you or do you any harm

Got to...
