She Doesn't Live Here Anymore

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

We grew up together, we’ve been here forever.
Barefoot in the summer, cold and stormy weather.
She taught me all there is, like magic and love,
Lots of forgotten words

But now, she doesn’t live here anymore.
She’s off and she’s gone, she doesn’t live here anymore.
I’m sorry that’s all there is to it, I’m sorry that’s all

She dressed just like a painter, a female street Picasso
And I, I will remember the heaven in her laughter,
And the scent of het sweet perfume
When we made love under an August moon

But now, she doesn’t live here anymore.
She’s off and she’s gone, she doesn’t live here anymore.
She’s gone since long, so long, she doesn’t live here anymore.
She took off and left home, she doesn’t live here anymore.
I’m sorry that’s all there is to it, I’m sorry that’s all.
That’s all.

You Don't Understand Me

Words & Music by Per Gessle & Desmond Child

I’ve been up all night, you’ve been puttin’ up a fight.
Seems like nothin’ I say gets through.
How did this old bed fit a world between me and you.
We said “Goodnight“ but the silence was so thick
You could cut it with a knife.
We’ve hit the wall again and there’s nothin’ I can do.

You’re the one, yea, I’ve put all my trust in your hands.
C’mon and look in my eyes, here I am, here I am

You don’t understand me, my baby.
You don’t seem to know that I need you so much.
You don’t understand me, my feelings, the reason I’m breathin’, my love

The mornin’ comes and you’re reachin’ out for me
Just like everything’s the same
And I let myself believe things are gonna change.
When you kiss my mouth and you hold my body close,
Do you wonder who’s inside?
Maby there’s no way we could feel each other’s pain.

Tell me why it get’s harder to know where I stand.
I guess loneliness found a new friend, here I am

You don’t understand me, my baby.
You don’t seem to know that I need you so much.
You don’t understand me, my feelings, the reason I’m breathin’, my love

You don’t seem to get me, my baby.
You don’t really see that I live for your touch.
You don’t understand me, my dreams or the things I believe in, my love.
You don’t understand me.
You don’t understand me.
Understand me.

June Afternoon

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Didn’t I tell you everything is possible in this déjà vu?
Try the river boat, the carousel, feed the pigeos, Bar-B-Q.
Look at all the people, happy faces all around.
Smiling, throwing kisses, busy making lazy sounds

It’s a bright June afternoon, it never gets dark.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun.
Get your green green tambourine, let’s play in the park.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

Some folks are on blankets, slowly daydreaming and reaching for their food.
Let’s go buy an ice-cream and a magazine with an attitude
And put on a cassette, we can pretend that you’re a star
Cos life’s so very simple just like la-la-la

It’s a bright June afternoon, it never gets dark.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun.
Get your green green tambourine, let’s play in the park.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

There’s a painter painting his masterpiece.
There are some squirrels jumping in the trees.
There’s a wide-eyed boy with a red balloon.
All my life I’ve longed for this afternoon.

One Is Such A Lonely Number

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I never knew when you walked in the room.
I sold my soul to a stranger, an angel face yea.
I never had this kind of sight before,
This kind of vision white, hang on tight yea.
I don’t know, girl, you’ve been around.
Don’t you go, don’t you let me down.

One is such a lonely number, to make the world go round.
Three is just a little too much to touch, now honey,
To make the world go round and round and round.
One is such a lonely number.

I think about what this has done to me.
I’m going back to the start, back to school days.
I never had this urge inside of me,
To hear the sound of a heart fill the airwaves.
There’s a love line, it’s tied to the ground.
Leave you here, never let you down.

One is such a lonely number, to make the world go round.
Three is just a little too much to touch, now honey,
To make the world go round and round and round.

One is such a lonely number, to mend a broken heart.
Three is just a little too much to touch, hey honey,
To make the world go round and round and round and round.

There’s a love line, it’s tied to the ground.
Leave you here, never let you down.

One is such a lonely number, to make the world go round.
Three is just a little too much to touch, now honey,
To make the world go round and round and round.

One is such a lonely number, to mend a broken heart.
Three is just a little too much to touch, hey honey,
To make the world go round and round and round.
One is such a lonely number, to make the world go round...

Almost Unreal

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Babe, come in from the cold, and put that coat to rest.
Step inside, take a deep breath, and do what you do best.
Yea, kick off them shoes, and leave those city streets.
I do believe love came our way and fate did arrange for us to meet

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you’ve got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it’s almost unreal, it’s almost unreal

Hey, we can’t stop the rain, let’s find a place by the fire.
Sometimes I feel, strange as it seems
You’ve been in my dreams all my life

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you’ve got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it’s almost unreal, it’s almost unreal

It’s a crazy world out there.
Let’s hope our prayers are in good hands tonight.

The Voice

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Between the open heart and the whisper goodbye,
There’s a perfect teardrop in your eye.
Between the lover’s moon and the trembling sky,
There’s a broken dream in your mind.

And the voice is carrying the love you have lost,
And the change of heart in someone you trust.
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars.
Hear the lonely voice in the dark.

Between the careful touch and the breakaway kiss,
There’s a beauty you can’t resist.
Mmm, between the fall apart and the moment of bliss,
there must be something more than this.

And the voice is carrying the love you have lost.
Love you have lost.
And the change of heart in someone you trust.
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars.
Love and the scars.
Hear the lonely voice in the dark. In the dark.

Hear the lonely voice.
Hear the lonely voice.

And the voice is carrying the love you have lost.
Love you have lost.
And the change of heart in someone you trust.
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars.
Love and the scars.
Hear the lonely voice in the dark.
Oh, yea, the voice is carrying the love you have lost.
Love you have lost.
And the change of heart in someone you trust.
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars.
Love and the scars.
Hear the lonely voice in the dark.
In the dark.
Lonely voice.
Lonely voice in the dark.
Hear the lonely voice.
Hear the lonely voice in the dark...

The Sweet Hello, The Sad Goodbye

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Red like fire was the day I met you.
I tell you now, there are no regrets.
In this room there are many memories.
Some are good, some I try to forget.
I thought we were the chosen ones,
Who were supposed to fly.

We’re very much the same, you and I.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
Still waiting to get hurt, time after time.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
When love lies in our hands,
We seem to run and hide.
And I can’t help but wonder why.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.

My heart was like a runaway train, babe.
I don’t believe I’ve ever felt more alive.
In this room I hear voices linger.
We never talked about the price.
You know you’re not the only one,
Who knows how to cry.

We’re very much the same, you and I.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
Still waiting to get hurt, time after time.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
When love lies in our hands,
We run away and hide.
And I can’t help but wonder why.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.

We’re very much the same, you and I.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
Still waiting to get hurt, time after time.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
When love lies in our hands,
We run away and hide.
And I can’t help but wonder why.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
Goodbye.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye.
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
