Waiting For The Rain

Words & Music by Marie Fredriksson

I’m waiting for the rain, I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting for the rain, to clean my soul
I’m waiting for the rain
Nothing’s gonna be better, without you

The day you left me, the day you came
I’ll never forget you, feel you in my pain
The time stood still. the time was flying
I wonder why I’m not dying

I’m waiting for the sun, I’m waiting for a new day,
I’m waiting for the night to close my eyes,
I’m waiting for the dark
Oh it’s gonna be harder without you

The way we danced, I’ll always miss
I’ll never forget the way we kissed
The time stood still, the time was flying
I wonder why I’m not dying

You Can't Put Your Arms Around What's Already Gone

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I saw red, stayed at home
Placed a big pillow over the phone
In this town where I’m from,
I’ve learned two is so much better than one

But you left me alone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Well, you hurt to the core
You used to kiss like no one had done before
And your taste turned me on
Now you drive me real crazy just by being born

Cos you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
And you can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Baba b-baba b-baba ba

Took the tram ‘round the bay
Where everyone tells you to have a nice day
And my pride almost broke,
When the tears don’t fit you, you look like a joke

And you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Cryin’ eyes gettin’ worn
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Hey, you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Baba b-baba b-baba ba

Wish I Could Fly

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Halfway through the night, I wake up in a dream
Echoes in my head, make every whisper turn into a scream

I dreamed I could fly, out in the blue,
Over this town, following you
Over the trees, subways and cars
I’d try to find out who you really are

In the middle of the night, cool sweatin’ in my bed
Got the windows open wide, thinkin’ about all the things you said

I wish I could fly, out in the blue
Over this town, following you
I’d fly over rooftops, the great boulevards
To try to find out who you really are
Who you really are

I wish I could fly now

I wish I could fly, around and around
Over this town, the dirt on the ground
I’d follow your course of doors left ajar
To try to find out who you really are
To try to find out who you really are

Crush On You

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I’m a zombie in the moonlight, I’m sleepin’ when it’s daylight
I really should be alright, but I’m feelin’ kinda uptight
I’m messin’ with a neighbour, who killed my amp and fender
He looked to sweet and tender, it’s hard to tell his gender
Got coffee on the paper My dog’s an alligator
I want you now and later

I got a crush got a crush on you
Got a crush got a crush on you

I’m rentin’ the wrong movie, I’m laughin’ at the wrong guy
I’m drivin’ on the wrong side, My brain is gettin’ cock-eyed
The flag is never chequered, Can’t find my F-beat records
God, give a little lovin’, The money’s in the oven
Got dead flies in my scotch with ice, My talents always vaporize
I want your bird of paradise

I got a crush got a crush on you,
Got a crush got a crush on you

Crush! Crush! We got a good thing goin’ on
Crush! Crush! Such a good thing goin’ on

I’m freezin’ in the summer, I’m sweatin’ in the winter
No middle in the centre, No colours in the printer
No treatment at the pharmacy, No lessons learned from history
No future in the factory, No meaning in the poetry
No changin’ in the weather, No Elvis in the leather
I want you now or never

I got a crush got a crush on you
Got a crush got a crush on you

Turn To Me

Words by Per Gessle
Music by Marie Fredriksson

Turn to me when your heart breaks away.
Turn to me, don’t turn me away.
When everything’s said and done,
When you’re looking for somewhere to run

Why don’t you turn to me?
Turn to me

Turn to me when the moon gets to cold.
Turn to me when the story’s been told.
When everything’s dim and grey,
When you’ve hidden the rainbow away

Why don’t you turn to me?
Turn to me

Now that Christmas is here.
I’ll shadow of fears and if you want the secrets of mine,
Turn to me and read these lonely, lonely eyes.

Pearls Of Passion

Words & Music by Per Gessle

There was a banquet of believers when we walked into the room.
December days of Christmas felt like days in June.
And there were morning lights, and sunrise chimes echoed all around.
Now’s the time for weary minds, the moon is northern bound

And you know I’m going back, going back today.
Back to where I came from.
And you know I’m going back, going back to stay.
To the alleys where pearls of passion came my way

Well there’s a promise in the twilight, it’s so innocent and wild.
Two hearts that break the silence, you can hear a distant cry.
And there’s emptiness and loneliness, it’s more or less the same.
Well let’s run between the raindrops, babe, and catch the midnight train

And you know I’m going back, going back today.
Back to where I came from.
And you know I’m going back, going back to stay.
To the alleys where pearls of passion came my way

Came my way...

I Don't Want To Get Hurt

Words & Music by Per Gessle

In everything I see you appear with me, how come?
How come?
And everything I do involves you too.
We are like one.
In my life there has been so many changes
And I don’t want to be left out in the rain

I don’t want to get hurt, I’ve done my time.
All I want from you is to tell the truth.
I don’t want to get hurt no more this time.
I don’t want to go blind and find it’s falling apart all the time

In the middle of a dream you are there for me,
Your face, your lips.
But there’s no way you can tell cos I hide it really well,
So well.
In my life there has been loving and lying
And I don’t need another reason to cry

I don’t want to get hurt, I’ve done my time.
All I want from you is to tell the truth.
I don’t want to get hurt no more this time.
I don’t want to go blind and find it’s falling apart one more time.
