Better Off On Her Own

Words and Music by Per Gessle

My girl came home to me
just the other day, acting OK
I was reading alone
in my favourite room, the TV was on
may I be excused
for not telling the truth
'cos she's gone, she said
she's better off on her own

She turned her head
much better off on her own
my girl knocked on the door
to the place I usually refer to as home
I died, shoelace untied
she looked in my eyes, small and surprised
and God closed every gaze
the moon fell into the lake
Boy, she's gone, a drift
she's better off on her own

She closed, then she left
much better off on her own

Sitting naked by the windowsill
watching cars upon the hill
am I sleeping?
I was dreaming
for just a moment time stood still
better off on her own
better off on her own
now she's gone, she said
she's better of on her own
she turned her head
much better off on her own
she's gone, she sighed
she's better of on her own
the tears I cried
much better off on her own
my girl came home to me just the other day

Bla Bla Bla Bla Bla (You Broke My Heart)

Words & Music by Per Gessle

You promised me it would last forever
You said there's no way it could die
Everything you ever told me
Was a bunch of lies

Hey, I'm on the back of the outside
You know that's not where I belong, no
Every truth, everything I believed in
Has turned out wrong

It's all bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart so many times
A lot of bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart

It's all clear when you scratch on the surface
Going deeper deeper down
All I wanted was to make you happy
But baby, what's that sound?
But baby, what's that sound?

It's all bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart so many times
A lot of bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart

All you ever cared for was to make you stronger
No-one I have known has looked so weak
Oh yeah

It's all bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart so many times
A lot of bla bla bla bla bla

A lot of bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart so many times
A lot of bla bla bla bla bla
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
So many times

Making Love With You

Words & Music by Per Gessle

If there was a night to say
Something to cherish on a rainy day
If I close my eyes I go blind
I'm in the middle of a rush, rush

Makin love to you
Is all I ever wanted to do

Am I leaving world behind?
I laugh at all the things I've done for you
If there was a dream to say
I'm in the middle of a rush, rush

Makin love to you
Is all I ever wanted to do

Makin love
Makin love to you
Makin love
Makin love to you

Your love is so sweet to recall
The greatest of them all
I'm easy on my knees for you

Makin love to you
I couldn't love you any more than I do
God knows it's all I wanted to do

Makin love to you
Is all I wanna do
Is all I wanted to do
Is all I ever wanted to do

Stupid

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Everything you do you do so right
The clothes you buy are awfully nice
You wear your image bullet-proof
Your stocks are always thru the roof

You make me feel so stupid
Make me feel stupid

And you grew up
made in the sun
They all loved you from Day 1
You always remembered everyone's name
You always won the guessing games, ooh yeah

You make me feel so stupid
Make me feel stupid
And I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore

You always pick the perfect wine
Your money is sho 'nuff greener than mine
Your wit pours out when you open your mouth
My hometown is smaller than your house

You make me feel so stupid
Make me feel stupid
And I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore
I'm not gonna take it anymore
You make me feel stupid
So stupid
You make feel stupid, ooh ooh
You make me feel so stupid

Little Miss Sorrow

Words & Music by Per Gessle

She had those magic eyes you could see from miles around
She wore her summer dresses bright
Quite like the sky
She always came in colours
All smiles in daffodils
She let her hair down in the breeze

But every little thing has changed today - little Miss Sorrow
Every little thing turned pale and faded - little Miss Sorrow
The sunlight doesn't show
Although the colours go
Out through the window

She used to go out dancing
Cool silver fingernails
I used to watch her from the bar
Following her car
She always came in colours
She always kept control
She painted yesterday in gold

But every little thing turned grey today - little Miss Sorrow
Every little thing turned pale and faded - little Miss Sorrow
The sunlight doesn't show
All the colours go
Even the rainbow

Allow me to introduce myself
I'm just a local boy
She was my little Miss Joy
I want to call her name
My life won't be the same
Dear God

Every little thing has changed today - little Miss Sorrow
Every little thing turned pale and faded - little Miss Sorrow
Yes, every little thing turned grey today - little Miss Sorrow
The weak replace the strong
The bird forgot the song
What's going on?
What's going on?
Tell me what's going on?
What's going on?
What's going on?
Tell me what's going on?

Opportunity Nox

Word & Music by Per Gessle

(Opportunity nox, opportunity nox)

Well I liked you
I couldn't think of anything but you
For a week I was in love with your hair-do
I couldn't chew the small things I used to
I knew I was way over the moon

When I met you, when I met you
I didn't know what to do
When I saw you,
When I saw you, you said

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm dyin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity rox on...

I'm sleepin' and I'm dreamin' so solo
I saw you in the crowd in the front row
You couldn't get it right in the disco
Your dance is so much better in slow-mo

When I met you, when I met you
I didn't know what to do
When I saw you, yeah
When I saw you, I said

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh (opportunity nox)
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm dyin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity rox on...

When I met you, when I met you
I didn't know what to do (to do)
When I saw you, yeah
When I saw you, I said

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh (opportunity nox, opportunity nox)
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh, hey, ooh
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh (opportunity nox)
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh (opportunity nox)
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox
Ooh ooh ooh ooh (opportunity nox)
I'm livin' in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox

See Me

Words by Per Gessle
Music by Marie Fredriksson

Uuh, mhm
Na, na, na, na, na, na – mmm, mmm

With the moon and the sun in his eyes
He's arriving
And I don't know what I'd do without him
I got life, suddenly

See, see me
I've got nothing to hide
See me
I've got nothing to hide
See me

I'm layin my heart in the palm of his hand
So gently
I know he knows that I love him
Though I've never said
Is there an easy way?

See, See me
I've got nothing to hide (ha-a)
See me
I've got nothing to hide (ha-a)
See me

Coming home I'm coming home
It feels like I'm coming home
Coming home I'm coming home

See, (See me) See me (See me)
I've got nothing to hide (nothing to hide)
See me
I've got nothing to hide (nothing to hide)
See, (See me) See me (See me)
Aaaaaaa
Aaaaaaa
Aaaaaaa
Aaaaaaa
