From One Heart to Another

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Running running from one heart to another...

Echoes of loneliness, traces from love affairs,
Will never disappear, always come thru.
I thought I’d never know the time to see you go,
Two people turned into one, thinking as one

A hint in the night, a touch of a dream,
Has come to an end, we run from one heart to another again.
The rose of our love is withered and torn
And gone from one heart to another

Sailing away to sea, the ships made of you and me,
They pass in the darkest nights and turn out the lights.
And I thought I’d never know the season to see you go,
Two people twirled into one, being as one

A hint in the night, a touch of a dream,
Has come to an end, we run from one heart to another again.
The rose of our love is withered and torn
And gone from one heart to another

Running running from one heart to another...

Joy of a Toy

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

You wake me up in the middle of the night and burn the cover down.
You’re on the phone in the air like a record try to spin me around.
Oh won’t you move away, oh honey get away

The joy of a toy, is it all that you came for?
The joy of a toy got the look of a lie.
The joy of a toy put the hurt into action.
The joy of a toy, you can kiss this love goodbye

How can you win when you don’t know a thing what love is all about?
Don’t want to fight so get out of my sight I won’t surrender now.
It’s independence day, oh honey get away

The joy of a toy, is it all that you came for?
The joy of a toy got the look of a lie.
The joy of a toy put the hurt into action.
The joy of a toy, you can kiss this love goodbye.

Call of the Wild

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

I know her, and every notion I get from her I wear inside me.
I know her, all of the broken leaves of love she leaves behind.
Oh - don’t you hide away from the rain.
Oh - can you tell me the name of this game?

I got to get thru to you.
Behind the door, another wall, a lonely cry a call of the wild.
A dancing daze, an empty face, a crystal high a call of the wild.
And there is something that sweeps the dark,
B lover’s dart, the call of a broken heart.
Wrapped in the night, behind these eyes, oh hear the cry, a call of the wild

I know her and in my mind I dream of her, how she aches without me.
I know her and every heart is a lonely hunter when she walks by.
Oh - can you read the hurt in my eyes?
Oh - don’t you leave without saying goodbye.

I got to get thru to you.
Behind the door, another wall, a lonely cry a call of the wild.
A dancing daze, an empty face, a crystal high a call of the wild.
And there is something that sweeps the dark,
B lover’s dart, the call of a broken heart.
Wrapped in the night, behind these eyes, oh hear the cry, a call of the wild.

Neverending Love

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Chasing your shadow, the sensess together,
Four-leafed and clever I come from behind.
Chasing your shadow, I wander in circles,
You’re one in a million, we’re two of a kind.

It’s you that I long for, it’s you that I hunger,
Oh you are the maker of waves in my mind

We dance in the moonlight, a run on the wire,
Drawing a fine line, a neverending love.
The fever turns slowly into a fire,
Drawing a fine line, a neverending love

Chasing your shadow, moon and the water,
Field and the reaper, star and the sky.
Chasing your shadow, hammer and heartbeat,
Clay and new concrete, I follow the signs.

It’s you that I long for, it’s you that I hunger,
And you are the maker of waves in my mind

We dance in the moonlight, a run on the wire,
Drawing a fine line, a neverending love.
The fever turns slowly into a fire,
Drawing a fine line, a neverending love.

Voices

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

I knew this would happen
And I don’t want to be around when it gets out.
I’ve closed the last picture
And painted the windows inside and out.

Give me your dreams and I’ll give you my time,
Together we’ll cross the borderline

Voices - cracking the night,
Voices - that cut like a knife,
Voices - hear them singing: Ooh Ooh

From sparks to the fire,
From here to obsession they cover the end.
Twisting a match and see the reflections of hunters of men.

Give me your dreams and I’ll give you my time,
Until we make it to the borderline

Voices - cracking the night,
Voices - that cut like a knife,
Voices - hear them singing: Ooh Ooh

Surrender

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

She knows I’d do anything she wants me to,
The love she finds is deeper than the ocean.
She knows I’d do anything she wants me to,
A river of dew, warmer than the dawning

Surrender - tie the cover to the ground.
Surrender - tie the cover to the ground.
But don’t turn around and walk away again.
Don’t turn around and walk away again

He knows I’d say anything he wants to hear,
Loud and clear calls the voice of lovers.
He knows I’d do anything he wants me to,
Like ruby rain, I wash away the pain

Surrender - tie the cover to the ground.
Surrender - tie the cover to the ground.
But don’t turn around and walk away again.
Don’t turn around and walk away again.

I Call Your Name

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

It’s a madman’s situation, reminiscing in the rain,
And I’ve lost your love again, I call your name.
And I don’t want to think about it when I go to sleep at night,
Can you hear it in the wind, I call your name?

I call your name…

And I close the door behind me, I turn the lights all down,
There’s no-one there beside me, I call your name.
And I don’t want to think about it but I wind up all the same, Nothing’ll ever change, I call your name.

I call your name...

Lie awake under the stars, lie awake under the stars.
Lie awake under the stars, lie awake under the stars.

Goodbye to You

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Goodbye to you, goodbye to broken hearts,
Goodbye to romance, hiding in the dark, nights that leave a scar.
Goodbye to you, goodbye to empty cards,
Goodbye to this ball of bliss, I’m dancing from your arms

And I fill the bedroom with silent visions of rain.
And I paint the morning with echoes from pleasure in pain.
I don’t want to touch emotions, I just got to run away.
Electric blue like oceans, wild like lovers sway

Goodbye to you, goodbye to broken hearts,
Goodbye to romance, hiding in the dark, nights that leave a scar.
Goodbye to you, goodbye to empty cards,
Goodbye to this ball of bliss, I’m dancing from your arms

And I seal the pillow and shatter dreams down the hall.
And I hang the heartache like pictures on the wall.
Can you hear the sound of angels they’re playing hurting games?
Well, I’m a stranger when I’m leaving, I was a stranger when I came

Secrets That She Keeps

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

I move all right,
I got the wheels going round, making ways in the night.
Yea we’re movin’ all right,
Wipin’ the rain from the ground and the pale from the sky
But something happens in his heart when the morning comes

The secrets that she keeps away from me,
The tears on the pillow she don’t want me to see,
Well every little thing she does is for me
But somebody new is breaking us in two

He’s the kind of love
That makes a whirl in your mind, like the tide and the time.
With just a little bit o’soul
He fights to find peace of mind in these shattering eyes
But something happens in his heart when the morning comes

The secrets that she keeps away from me,
The tears on the pillow she don’t want me to see,
Well every little thing she does is for me
But somebody new is breaking us in two

The secrets that she keeps away from me.
The love of you and me...

Soul Deep

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Save a prayer for a sinner and a saint, my baby’s coming back.
Say a prayer, hide hide away yea baby’s coming back.
He-He-Hey, ain’t gonna trouble his wandering mind,
Gonna take on the time to find out if my love is

Soul deep - spinning the heart round a wire.
Soul deep - a heavenly wave.
Soul deep - heating the heart like a fire,
Soul deep - is taking my breath away-ay-ay.

Save a tear till the curtain will fall, well I’m saving them all for you.
Knock on wood, is it understood that I’m saving it up for you.
He-He-Hey love is a hustle just a moment behind,
Gonna walk on the line to find out if my love is

Soul deep - spinning the heart round a wire.
Soul deep - a heavenly wave.
Soul deep - heating the heart like a fire,
Soul deep - is taking my breath away-ay-ay.

Save a prayer for a sinner and a saint, my baby’s coming back.
Say a prayer, hide hide away yea yea baby’s coming back.
He-He-Hey ride on the soul train now I’m too close to hide,
Gonna take on the time to find out if my love is

Soul deep - spinning the heart round a wire.
Soul deep - a heavenly wave.
Soul deep - heating the heart like a fire,
Soul deep - is taking my breath away-ay-ay.
