Cry

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

Living here without you is not an easy way of life.
I spend my time without you, I try to make it all worthwhile.
Standing in a rainfall coming down from the sky
Why should I cry over you?

Why should I cry cry cry over you?

I keep on thinking about you. I’ve got no private pride to hide.
I’ve built my world around you like a call without reply.
My love has lost direction, she’s got the sun in her eyes
Why should I cry...

Hearing your footsteps, loud on my stairs (a-walking...) - living without you.
Feeling the sweet sweet smell of love in the air (I can feel it...) - living without you.
Kissing the face that I see everywhere but I’m living without you, living without.

Dance Away

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

There’s a hidden meaning in everything he says,
Every close encounter, every kiss, every caress.
Even the truth has got that bitter taste of a lie.
Well, I can read his lips but I can’t read his mind

I can see him dance away now oh oh - oh oh oh

He was one of the kind that seems so hard to find.
There’s a change of weather, now he leaves me far behind.
That I don’t matter to him came as such a surprise.
Well, I can read his lips, I thought I read his eyes

And I can see him dance away now oh oh - oh oh oh

Paint

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

I’ve got a hot chilly feeling I don’t understand.
I’ve got to run through this minute like a hurricane.
I’ve got to tighten my wire from the sense to the soul.
I find my back to the wall when it’s time to go.
I’ve got to know is that your heartbeat?

Paint...me right. Can you feel the heat in me tonight?
Oh I, I’m the pearl...Paint your love all over my world

I get a love shock/electric from the touch of your hand.
I’m getting lost in the riddles of the modern man.
I’ve got it up down all around tied to the bone.
Hey there’s a strange situation on the late nite show.
I’ve got to know is that your heartbeat?

Paint...me right. Can you feel the heat in me tonight?
Oh I, I’m the pearl...Paint your love all over my world.
Do it right, I can feel the woman in me tonight.
Oh I, I’m the pearl...paint your love all over my world.

Sleeping Single

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Here’s the house.
Here’s the city and the stream.
Here’s the father to my dream.
Here’s the lost and lonely look in your eyes.
When you leave I will break down and cry

Sleeping single - I will wait for you.
I’m sleeping single - ‘til you change your mind.
Sleeping single - I will wait for you ‘til time has gone by

I’ll pay the price for all the love you poured like rain
"Toujours l’amour" over again,
But the midnight chills are getting so rough
And the bed is big enough for both of us

Sleeping single - I would die for you.
I’m sleeping single - won’t you change your way.
Sleeping single - I will pray for you to stay,
He-he-hey...he-he-hey...

Dressed For Success

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: 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!

The Look

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: 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.

So Far Away

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: 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.

Like Lovers Do

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Take the line between us and hold it close to you,
I want us to get together, like lovers do.
Let me kiss away your troubles, the cold and lonely nights,
Just take this heart I’m giving and love is on the rise

Like lovers do - want to hold you thru the night,
Like lovers do - and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do - oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion

It feels just like forever - like forever - since I made love to you,
September days of scarlet - be together -, April morning dew.
So take the love between us and hold it close to you,
I want us to get together like lovers do

Like lovers do - want to hold you thru the night,
Like lovers do - and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do - oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion.
