Every Day

Words by Per Gessle
Music by Marie Fredriksson

Every day I see him comin’
Every day he walks on by
Life used to be so plain and simple
Before he came into my life

Every night I keep on dreaming, uuu-huu
Every night I take him home
We’re always go to bed together
I always wake up all alone

Ooh, it’s strange, so strange
What he’s doin’ to me
Ooh, it’s strange, so strange
Did this ever happen to you?, haa
The way it has happened to me?
The way it just happened to me

Every day outside my window
Always minutes close to eight
Oh, I wish he stayed a little longer
But his bus is never late

Every night we’re dancing slowly
I play the music he adores
Like Sinatra… then we’re talking
All important things for sure

Ooh, it’s strange, it’s so strange
What he’s doin’ to me
Ooh, it’s strange, so strange
Did this ever happen to you?
The way it has happened to me
Ooh, it’s strange, so strange
What he’s doin’ to me
Ooh, so strange, real strange
Did this ever happen to you?
The way it has happened to me
The way it just happened to me
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

It Hurts

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Can you tell me where it leades
When it’s neverending?
Can you tell me where to go
When no one’s home?

And I know,
You know it hurts,
It hurts to be alone
You’re on, you’re on
On a one-way train going down

Can you tell me what to say
When there’s no one listening?
Can you show me what to do
When all is done?

Ooh, I know,
You know it hurts,
It hurts to be alone
The plan has gone wrong
Like a runaway train going down
Oh, going down down down
Going down
Going down down, a-a-a

Yes, I know
You know it hurts,
It hurts to be alone
You’re on, on your own
On a one-way train going down, going down
Going down down down
Going down
Going down down down
That’s the feeling
It hurts to be alone
It hurts to be alone
Going down
Na, na, na, na, na

The Weight Of The World

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Sunday morning
I’m still hiding in bed
Listening to the rhythm of the rain above my head
And all that I have said
I sure saved a lot for you
But what could I do?
If I’d been talking to the wall
It wouldn’t make any difference to you
That’s the art of being you
I think I carry the weight of the world

Sometimes you lose
The weight of the world
Sometimes you cryyyyy

I kiss your smile
I wish you’d stay the night
I put my arms around your golden head and turn out the light
Oh, I love to watch your eyes
When I make love to you
Wait little world

Sometimes you lose
The weight of the world
Sometimes you cryyyyy
Sometimes you cryyyyy

The weight of the world
(Weight of the world)
Sometimes you lose
The weight of the world
(Weight of the world)
Sometimes you cryyyyy
Yes, sometimes you cryyyyy

Breathe

Words & Music by Per Gessle

(Breathe your love)

I gotta come down,
I’ve been awake for far too long
My eyes look torn, they were so strong
I wore the crown, I wrote the song,
Now it’s fading
My heart was open
Like a window to a summer breeze

I breathed (breathe) your love, I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed (breathe) your love until I felt the pain
And like rain (breathe) it slipped away

I tried to find out
What love was really all about
Behind the curtain waits the sky
It’s rare I feel enough to cry,
I’m drying up inside
My life was open
Oh, like a window to the summer breeze

I breathed (breathe) (I breathed) your love, I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed (breathe) (I breathed) your love until I met the pain
And like rain (breathe) it slipped away, just like a little rain

I breathed (I breathed) your love and nothing stayed the same
Yes, I breathed (breathe) (I breathed) your love and filled my heart in vain
Cos like rain (breathe) it slipped away, oh, yeah, just like rain it swept away

(Breathe your love)
I breathed your love and nothing stayed the same
(Breathe your love)
Oh, I breathed your love just like a little rain
(Breathe)
It slipped away
Oh, I breathed
(Breathe)
And nothing stayed the same

A Thing About You

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I pick up the phone
I’m dialin’ your number
While I pray you’re at home
At home and alone
Cos I can’t function on my own
And I’ll never stop believin’

The reapin’ is done, you are the one
The radio is on but sound is all gone
And I wanna walk out in the sun
But lately that’s been very hard to do

I’ve got a thing about you
And I don’t really know what to do
Cos I’ve got a thing about you,
Hey you

I pick up the phone
I’m dialin’ that number
And my heart like a stone
Waits for the tone
”- Oh I can’t make it on my own
And I’ll never stop believin’”

I know what is right and this is so wrong
Alone in my bed, better off on my own
The TV is on but the colours are gone
And lately you’ve been paintin’ my world blue

I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
And I don’t really care what you do
I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
Yea you

I’ve got a thing about you
I’ve got a thing about you-ou-ou-ou

Lately you’ve been paintin’ my world blue

I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
(I’ve got a thing about you)
And I don’t really know what to do
I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
(I’ve got a thing about you)
Hopin’ this story cuts through
(This story cuts through)
Yea, I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
(I’ve got a thing about you)
A thing about you

I’ve got a thing about you
I’ve got a thing about you-ou-ou-ou
And I don’t really know what to do

I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you-ou-ou-ou)

My World, My Love, My Life

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Some days are covered in rain
While other days are made for glory
And you are the summer sun
The only one who knows the story

Do you want to talk about it? - I don’t know
Do you want to say some words? - Oh, I can’t let go

I’m talking about my world, my love, my life
Everytime I try to close my eyes
You just enter my mind
And you lay yourself down beside me... oh why?

Some streets are covered with sweat
There are no regrets just new connections... oh why?
You are the Summer Son
And i’m the one who wants affection

Do you want to talk about it? - I don’t know
Do you want to speak some words? - Oh, I can’t let go

I’m talking about my world, my love, my life
Everytime I try to close my eyes
You just run through my head
And you lay yourself down, beside me... oh why?

My world, my life...

I’m talking about my world, my love, my life
Everytime... I try to close my eyes
You just enter my mind
And you lay yourself down, beside me... oh why...
You just run through my head
And you lay yourself down, beside me... oh why...

(repeats until fade) My world, my life...

It Takes You No Time To Get Here

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Why don’t you take the rest of the day off
You do deserve a break
Follow that road, it ain’t long
Just cross that silver lake
Yea, pass the pond, the off-white fence
When you see the mailbox to the left
You’ve made it all right, no way to go wrong
All you do is blow that horn

It takes you no time to get here
Just drive out of town today
It takes you no time to get here
And when you’ve arrived you might as well stay
You might as well stay

Why don’t you leave your desk for a short while
You do deserve some time
Enjoying the other side of life
You forgot to memorize
Stay in the sun, reach for the moon
Make a little love in the afternoon
You’re doing all right, no way you go wrong
This is the place where you belong

It takes you no time to get here
Just drive out of town today
It takes you no time to get here
And when you’ve arrived you might as well stay
You might as well stay

Fool

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I was alone I told my mouth to shut up
Cos I was talking to myself like I always do when I’m stuck
Well, I was crying You could be crying too
I was screaming throungh the windown, I keep missing you
And the tears came down from the sky
And the rain feel hard on my eyes

Now you know what I look like, I’m feeling like a fool
I lose on my own, I’m going back to school
And I will pray, Hallelujah, you’ll be breaking every rule
And come back to stay, I’m feeling like a fool

I really tried so hard to design my life
There’s a big black void in head like it’s been cut by a knife
Every time your name comes around
This stupidity follows me down

Now you know what I look like, I’m feeling like a fool
I thought I could swim I’m drowning in the pool And
I will pray, Hallelujah, you’ll be breaking every rule
And consider to stay, I’m feeling like a fool

Please, come back to stay, I’m feeling like a fool
I’m feeling like a fool in my heart I’m feeling like a fool

Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I left and wrote this song cos my life looked so shattered
I thank the Lord I’m still strong like before
I picked myself up from the floor and tried
I tried just a little bit harder, oh yea

If someone wants you to bleed and it feels like your’re dying
Don’t make the movers you don’t need, don’t cry,
just say ba-ba-bye-bye and try, try
Try just a little bit harder, you’ll survive
Try just a little bit harder, go ahead and try

Mondays and rainy days were in my pocket
I don’t want to send them on to you Bring them to you
