Physical Fascination

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Hi!
I got to go, get aboard attack a love jet heaven and back.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.
And I got to find a power station with a beat, I can’t take no conversation.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.

Looking for the inspiration
All succumb to the physical fascination,
All succumb to the physical fascination

Hi! Shake shake it up, this love divine,
You’re out of touch, babe, I’m going out of my mind.
My-my-my-my-my-my-mind.
Talk to me! Why don’t you talk to me?
C’mon and use your body language and have yourself a good time.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.

And radiate your sweet temptation
All succumb to the physical fascination,
All succumb to the physical fascination
Yea yea yea yea.

Small Talk

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

It’s not the chapters he reads when you’re feeling low down.
It’s not the touch of his skin when you kiss him goodnight.
It’s not the money he spends when you want to buy a daydream
And not that miracle smile that makes the sky bright.
It’s not the way his hands behave when you’ve turned out the light

It’s the small small small talk that makes it all happen.
Small small small talk that makes you want to fly, yes it does

It’s not the way he believes in you like a religion.
It’s not the thrill that you get when he’s holding you tight.
It’s not the way his eyes persuade you to stay the night

It’s the small small small talk that makes it all happen (just like that).
Small small small talk that makes you feel like flying, yes it does

Information, heart and soul, a whisper, a word,
Confessions that have to be heard, small small talk, small small talk.

Come on now, come on now, come on - you make it rock so heavenly.
Come on now, come on now, come on - you seem to talk so heavenly.

Big words... small talk...

Church Of Your Heart

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Can’t we leave the world outside
Just for a while? Just for a while?
And spend some time, you and I,
Under this bright glorious sky.
It’s been so long since I first saw you,
But I still love that smile in your eyes

Yes it’s true, right from the start,
I believed in the church of your heart.
Yes it’s you that made me be part of
And believe in the church of your heart

Step inside, lay yourself down
Just for a while, rest for a while.
I can hear a thundering sound
Beating inside when you’re around.
It’s been so long since I first met you,
Since we made love, you know how time flies

Yes it’s true, right from the start,
I believed in the church of your heart.
Yes it’s you that made me be part of
And believe in the church of your heart
In the church of your heart.

(Do You Get) Excited?

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

When the day gets dark over a thousand streets
And you feel your heart is a living beat.
When you’re all alone and you close your eyes,
Naked to the bone the dream comes alive

Do you get excited when I touch you in the night?
My oh my...
Do you get excited when I meet you every night?
You won’t let the night pass you by

When your body’s hot, the window’s open wide.
This moment’s all you got in this race of life.
When you feel the fire is getting close to you,
Hey baby, you know I’m lonely too

Do you get excited when I touch you in the night?
My oh my...
Do you get excited when I meet you every night?
You won’t let the night pass you by

I wanna know.
I got to know.

The Big L.

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

She’s the top, she’s got the world on a string.
She makes me boogie, makes me do anything yea yea.
- Hey now, touch the sky,
You’ve got a certain kind of look in your eyes.

Well, she’s a miracle, she’s all that I need
Like the water and the air that I breathe yea yea.
- Hey now, reach the sky,
There’s a certain kind of look in your smile.

And I know what love can do.
Yes I know what hearts can do

The big love is taking the wheel,
The big love goes head over heels,
The big lust, bring it into the small world,
The bigger, the better.
Big love, waiting to catch
The big one, head over heels,
The big one, bring it into the small world.
I’m building the big big love,
I’m building the big big love

It’s kinda strange, a bit mysterious,
I gotta take it oh so so serious.
- Hey now, touch the sky,
You’ve got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
It used to be so hard, so lonely at night,
Well, she’s my baby and I’m feeling alright.
- Hey now, move the sky,
There’s a certain kind of look in that smile.

When I’m making love with her.
When I’m making love to her yea

The big love is taking the wheel,
The big love goes head over heels,
The big lust, bring it into the small world,
The bigger, the better.
Big love, waiting to catch
The big one, head over heels,
The big one, bring it into the small world.
I’m building the big big love,
I’m building the big big love

It has to be a big thing. It’s bringing me to my knees.
Has to be a big thing, big thing, ya know what I’m saying...

Watercolours In The Rain

Music by: Marie Fredriksson
Words by: Per Gessle

Going through the motions.
Ending up nowhere at all.
Can’t see the sun on my wall.
Going through emotions.
Ending up on a frozen morning
With a heart not even broken

Seems I’ve been running all my life all my life.
Seems I’ve been running all my life all my life
Like watercolours in the rain

Find a place to settle down.
Get a job in a city nearby
And watch the trains roll on by.
I’ll find the falling star.
I’ll fall in love with the eyes of a dreamer
And a dream worth believing

Seems I’ve been running all my life all my life.
Seems I’ve been running all my life all my life
Like watercolours in the rain.

I Remember You

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Are you ready? Go!

I hear your footsteps like you’re walking.
I hear your voice like you’re talking to me.
And I can reach every moment,
Every caress like I’m living a dream.

Down to the bone, go little darling
Oh I remember you, feels like it was yesterday.
I remember you, you’ve got me running back again

You shared my secrets and my laughter.
I fell in love with the light in your eyes
And I believed that summer
Would go on and on for the rest of my life.

Down to the bone, go little darling
Hey I remember you, feels like it was yesterday.
I remember you, you’ve got me running back again

You’ve got me running. I say: na na na na na na na na na na.

Spending My Time

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

Knockin’ On Every Door

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: Per Gessle

Hey now honey, you got to face the floor,
You headed for the heart but you couldn’t find the door, could you? Could you?
Well, I’m standing in the sun but I’m living in the rain,
I got to get a-whirlin’ like a human hurricane over you, over you.

Now you’re looking like a fox on the run.
And you’re faster than a shot from a gun.
I’m pointing at you, oh you.
Talking ‘bout you, hey you

I thought we had love in store - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Babe, I’ve seen it all before - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Ain’t no lovin’ you ignore - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Keep keep knock knockin’ on every door - you keep on knockin’ on every door

Hey now honey, time is all you’ve spent.
You moved into the bed but you couldn’t pay the rent. Could you?
In the twinkle of an eye you electrify.
I got to get a-shootin’ like a rocket in the sky, bye bye, goodbye.

Now you’re burning like you’re hot on the scene.
Don’t you love to steal a part of my dream?
I’m looking at you, oh you.
Talking ‘bout you, yea you

I thought we had love in store - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Babe, I’ve seen it all before - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Ain’t no sugar you ignore - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Keep keep knock knockin’ on every door - you keep on knockin’ on every door

I thought we used to have love in store - you keep knock knockin’ on every door.
Hey babe, don’t run around here no more - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Ain’t no sugar you ignore - you keep on knockin’ on every door.
Keep keep knock knockin’ on every door - you keep on knockin’ on every door.

You’d better learn your lesson now...

Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)

Music by: Per Gessle
Words by: 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.
