Sleeping In My Car

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I’ll tell you what I’ve done, I’ll tell you what I’ll do.
Been driving all nite just to get close to you.
Baby Babe - I’m moving so fast, you’d better come on.

The moon is alright, the freeway’s heading south.
My heart is going Boom!, there’s a strange taste in my mouth.
Baby Babe - I’m moving real fast, so try to hold on, try to hold on!

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you.
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you.
Staying in the back seat of my car making up

So come out tonight, I’ll take you for a ride.
This steamy ol’ wagon, the radio is getting wild.
Baby Babe - we’re moving so fast,
I try to hang on, try to hang on!

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you.
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you.
Staying in the back seat of my car making love, oh yea!
Sleeping in my car - I will possess you.
Sleeping in my car - certainly bless you.
Laying in the back seat of my car making up

The night is so pretty and so young.
The night is so pretty and so young.
So very young...

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you.
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you.
Staying in the back seat of my car making love to you.
Sleeping in my car - I will possess you.
Sleeping in my car - certainly bless you.
Laying in the back seat of my car making up

I will undress you. I will undress you.
The night is so pretty and so young.

Run To You

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Baby, sometimes I feel like dying,
Driving while I’m closing my eyes.
Moving in and out of hiding,
Trying to catch some truth in my life.
Watching your stars and your moonlight,
Come tumbling down from the sky.
Take it now

I’m gonna run to you, I’m gonna come to you,
I wanna find you in everything that I do.
I’m gonna run to you, I’m gonna count on you,
I’m gonna follow. Baby, what else can I do?

Sunday morning, my town is sleeping.
Lying all alone in my bed, there’s not a sound,
I can’t help but listening.
Wishing I was somewhere else instead.
But sometimes they’re too hard to handle,
These voices inside my head.
Listen now

I’m gonna run to you, I’m gonna come to you,
I wanna find you in everything that I do.
I’m gonna run to you, I’m gonna count on you,
I’m gonna follow. Baby, what else can I do?

Take a walk inside my dream: A church, a lonely road.
All the people come and go and come and go.
Do it now!

Fireworks

Words & Music by Per Gessle

I once knew a girl, I can’t remember her name
But I remember her face cos her sister looked the same.
They both left school, but they couldn’t find a job.
So they said farewell and stole a small town car.

As they were riding by the beach some summer night,
The radio shouted out one of those songs
That might just change your life - It went like this:

"Checkin’ in checkin’ out,
Making love I like watching all your fireworks.
I like it when I light those stars in your eyes,
Just like fireworks in the sky"
- yes it did...

Throwing some poems to the ports and docks.
They were sleeping outdoors pushing all their luck.
They sent me a letter full of pills and thrills,
Then they both got rich and moved to Hollywood Hills.

Yea they made lots of money playing folk guitar,
Cos everywhere the boys went crazy
Just to hear these words of art:

"Checkin’ in checkin’ out, Take it to the sky,
Making love I like watching all your fireworks.
I like it when I light those stars in your eyes,
Just like fireworks in the sky"

They’re coming to get you.
They’re coming to get you now.
Coming to get you now.
Watch the sky!

Crash! Boom! Bang!

Words & Music by Per Gessle

My Papa told me to stay out of trouble,
"When you’ve found your man, make sure he’s for real!".
I’ve learned that nothing really lasts forever.
I sleep with the scars I wear that won’t heal, they won’t heal

Cos every time I seem to fall in love, Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall, Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s the call, that’s the game and the pain stays the same

I’m walking down this empty road to nowhere,
I pass by the houses and blocks I once knew.
My Mama told me not to mess with sorrow,
But I always did, and Lord, I still do. I’m still breaking the rules.
I kick it up. I kick it down

Cos every time I seem to fall in love, Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall, Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s my real middle-name, it has always been the same.
That’s the call, that’s the game and the pain stays the same

I still feel the heat - Slowly fallin’ from the sky
And the taste of the kissing, shattered by rain
Comin’ tumblin’ from behind - And the wild holy war.
I kick it up. I kick it down

And every time I seem to fall in love, Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the roses dying on the floor, Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s the tall, that’s the game and the pain stays the same.
That’s my real middle-name, it has always been the same.

Oh Yea Oh Yea Oh Yea Uh-huh, been the same, been the same.
It has always been the same.

Harleys & Indians (Riders In The Sky)

Words & Music by Per Gessle

When I go to heaven, Harley Harley heaven.
I want to meet a king, like the panhead 48.
I want to meet the fat one, we can talk for hours.
When my time has come, Babe. I won’t be running late

Flying high, riders in the sky.
Na na na na

When I go to heaven, Red-skin heaven.
I want to meet the chiefs. Yea, I want to meet all scouts.
I won’t miss my friends cos I know where they’ll be,
We’re all part of the Indian family

Flying high, riders in the sky.
Na na na na

It’s alright, Baby. I’m OK, honey.
I’m only travellin’ thru this state of mine.
Hey it’s alright, mama, I’m doin’ fine now, mama.
I’m only in a certain state of mind.

When I go to heaven, Hog Hog heaven.
I’ll have a drink with Elvis while Marlon’s on his way.
We’re kickin’ and we’re revvin’, we’re dressing up in style.
It’s time to take a ride on that freeway in the sky

Flying high, riders in the sky.
Na na na na

Come on, come on.

Queen of Rain

Words by Per Gessle Music by Per Gessle & Mats M.P. Persson In that big big house there are fifty doors And one of them leads to your heart. In the time of spring I passed your gate And tried to make a start. All I knew was the scent of sea and dew But I’ve been in love before, how about you? There’s a time for the good in life, A time to kill the pain in life, Dream about the sun you queen of rain In that big old house there are fifty beds And one of them leads to your soul. It’s a bed of fear, a bed of threats, Regrets and sheets so cold. All I knew your eyes so velvet blue, I’ve been in love before, how about you? There’s a time for the good in life, A time to kill the pain in life, Dream about the sun you queen of rain It’s time to place your bets in life, I’ve played the loser’s game of life, Dream about the sun you queen of rain. Time went by as I wrote your name in the sky, Fly fly away, bye bye.

Come Back (Before You Leave)

Words & Music by Per Gessle Never looked back on a love affair. I never spent minutes on history, It made me sad, it made me so sad. And in no time no time at all A change has begun and the name is You, I feel strange, you’ve made my life strange. Cos baby when you get close to me I say there’s a certain chemistry Come back before you leave. I haven’t got room for a broken heart. Come back before you leave. You shouldn’t go at all, you shouldn’t go at all So many years and so many nights, I still can recall oh the way that you move when you dance, Do you want to dance? We’ve had our habits and attitudes, You make me remember the power when everything’s right, Please stay the night. Cos baby when you get close to me There’s something about you I really need Come back before you leave. I haven’t got room for a broken heart. Come back before you leave. You shouldn’t go at all, you shouldn’t go at all Babe, come back before you leave, I’ll be the air for you when you breathe, I’ll be the rising sun. Close the door, let’s make love, All God’s angels sing above Into the rising sun.

Here Comes the Weekend

Words & Music by Per Gessle Every shape of every word you say What breaks the silence of an ordinary day. Every look that seems to mystify, Every single smile that spins me to the sky. It makes me wanna run, it makes me wanna hide. Cos you’re the only one that makes me come alive. It’s getting closer now and darker by the hour It only goes to show That here it comes, here comes the weekend And I’m on my own again with a Saturday in the rain. Here it comes, here comes the weekend. The fine line from pleasure to pain is making me cry. When will I see you again? Every breath, every vision you make. Every chance in love you love to take. Every move that seems to alter my world. Every dream I’ve had about this boy and this girl. It makes me wanna run, it makes me wanna hide Cos you’re the only one that makes my love alive And time is running fast into a new goodbye It only goes to show That here it comes, here comes the weekend, Another walk down that lonely lane, another Sunday that feels the same. Here it comes, here comes the weekend. The fine line from pleasure to pain is making me cry. When will I see you again?

Silver Blue

Words & Music by Per Gessle I got to get a message through, I don’t know where we’re going. I wrap my arms around your naked shoulders, Take cover for the night. I see you in the morning rain, Oh step inside and lay beside me. Tender can you close my eyes and blind me, Oh give me just a smile... Before I fade to silver, Silver Blue for you. Before I fade to silver, Silver Blue for you I’ve turned into The Broken One Who lost the inspiration. I want to give you all my love Like water to a blood red rose. The Passion - I can’t deal with her. The Pain - well, I can do without him. And this is like the milky way, An ocean that only grows and grows And babe I fade to silver, Silver Blue for you. I turn and fade to silver, Silver Blue for you I wrap my arms around your naked shoulders, Take cover for the night.
