Go To Sleep-Roxette

There's a shadow on the terrace
A snow dance for the living
There's heavy weather on the way
I heard it on the news.

And life's a tough principal who won't reward the losers
Your name is on the tea-cup
There's nothing I can do.

But to wish you'd think about me before you go to sleep
And I wish you the best there is before you go to sleep.

There are tears without the colour
A million seas with water
An ocean full of people where shattered hearts can go.

And love's a golden ripple where answers are so simple
But the explanations are very hard to do.

And I wish you'd think about me before you go to sleep
And I wish you the best there is before you go to sleep
Go to sleep.



Love Is All (Shine Your Light On Me)-Roxette

Love is all
Love is all around you
Love is there in your laughter
In your hair
Love flows everywhere.

Love is old
Love is older than you
But the light shining through
Makes me see
Your love is all new.

Hey
Sha la la
Shine a light
Shine on me
Shine your light on me
Sha la la
Shine your light on me.

Love is all
Love will always be The Law
And higher love radiates on us all
On us all.

I'm Sorry-Roxette

The first time we met time stood still
You left me breathless
Suddenly speechless.

Within the hour we were one
Two total strangers kissing the moonlight.

Oh, you know I'm sorry I had to go
I'm really sorry it had to die
I'm really sorry I made you cry
Cry.

We fell in love between the nights
Of too many lovers and too many teardrops.

And fate won't resist some satin sheets
I was so helpless
Totally ruthless.

Oh, you know I'm sorry I had to go
I'm really sorry you're hurt inside
I'm really sorry I made you cry
Cry, cry.

Love is lifting you up and draggin' you down
Makes you go round and round and round
Time makes a stop then it's all gone
Funny how memories keep lingering on.

Lies-Roxette

Put 'em on
Put the big boots on
Baby put them big boots on.

Make a mark
Make a good kick start
Kick yourself right outa my heart.

It's a cookin' jumpin' jivin' shout
Cos you're every little thing I can do without
Every line you lay, every trick you trade
They could never ever make the grade.

Lies
La-la-la-la-lies
It's all lies
La-la-la-la-lies
You're all lies.

Honeybutt
Keep your big mouth shut
Baby keep that big mouth shut.

It's a steamin' jumpin' jivin' shout
Cos you're every little thing I still dream about
But the love you lay, every prayer you pray
It will never ever make my day
Listen to me good...

Lies
La-la-la-la-lies
It's all lies
Only lies
La-la-la-la-lies
You're all lies.

Doo doo doo doo doo.

Do You Wanna Go The Whole Way?-Roxette

Before we take off all our clothes and get close together
Before it gets too serious both of us need to know
Are we gonna go the whole way this time?
This time?

Before all secrets are revealed old scars must heal or wither
But it's getting very late and I can't wait anymore
Are we gonna go the whole way this time
Do you wanna go the whole way this time?
This time?

Do you wanna go the whole way now?
We're taking it easy
Do you wanna go the whole way, Babe?
Kick it in, kick it in slowly.

Do you wanna go the whole way this time?
Do you wanna go the whole way for sure
Do you wanna go the whole way this time?
This time?
This time?
Do ya?

What's She Like-Roxette



What's she like when she turns around to kiss you goodnight?
When she wakes up in the morning by your side?
What's she like?

What's she like?
The yellow moon or the deep blue of the sea?
Do you feel the same way you did when it was me?
What's she like?

Oh I've been holding on
I've been holding on for far too long
I've been holding on
I've been holding on much too long.

What's she like when you're making love and stars are in her eyes?
When you're looking for the answers in her smile?
What's she like?

Oh I've been holding on
I've been holding on for far too long
I've been holding on
I've been holding on much too long
Too long.

I never knew I could love somebody the way I loved you
I never thought I'd be the broken-hearted
Well, nothing hurts you like the truth.

So what's she like when she turns to you, when push comes to shove?
When she whispers in your ear that she's in love?
What's she like?

Oh I've been holding on
I've been holding on for far too long
I've been holding on
I've been holding on much too long
So what's she like?

I Love The Sound Of Crashing Guitars-Roxette

Mao Mao Mao...

I love the sound of smashing guitars
I love the sound of crashing guitars
Red guitars against the wall
Big guitars can turn so small
I love the sound of crashing guitars
Show it!

The 6-string kick inside
The 6-string kick inside
The 6-string kick inside.

I love the sound of breaking guitars
I love the sound of crashing guitars
Hey you long haired vintage Jesus
Break the guitar into 1000 pieces
I love the sound of crashing guitars
Don't you?

The 6-string kick inside
The 6-string kick inside.

Don't you love the sound of crashing guitars?
Don't you love the sound of crashing electric guitars?
Don't you love that sound, drivin' in your car
Don't you love the sound of crashing electric guitars?
Don't you?
Don't you?

I love the touch of watching the stars
I love the sound of trashing guitars
Custom made, Townshend's ace
Smash the axe and break the case
I love the sound of crashing guitars
Crashing and crashing!

The 6-string kick inside
The 6-string kick inside.

I love the sound of crashing guitars
Mao Mao Mao...

Place Your Love-Roxette

Sunday
Sick o' my tears
Monday morning
I could've felt much better.

Tuesday
You're in my way
I wish you would type my heart a letter.

Place your love
In my world
It's for you
It's made for you
I need time
A lot o' time
To get you off my mind
To get you off my mind.

Wednesday
Nuthin's OK
Thursday afternoon
I wish I was sleepin'.

Friday and Saturday sun
Gettin' up early but I can't get nuthin' done.

Place your love
In my world
It's for you
It's all made for you
I need time
A lot o' time
To get you off my mind
To get you off my mind.

Maybe you'll come here
Maybe you'll disappear
Maybe the clouds I fear will turn to flowers in the air
These cool vibrations
They're hitting me all the time
You've got me diggin' and divin' in the garden of my mind.

It's a high
To watch you fly
Across the sky
All the time
To watch you all the time.

The First Girl On The Moon-Roxette

She was the first girl on the moon
She didn't compromise
When she took off that cold afternoon
Heading for the northern skies.

I told her I could come
That I could come along.

She was the first girl on the moon
I think I was her only friend
She brought her raygun, an old harpoon
Just in case of accidents.

I told her I could come
That I could come along
But she didn't let me come along
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye.

She was the first girl on the moon
Standing tall, flag in hand
She looked around humming a tune
The strangest song known to man.

I told her I could come
That I could come along
But she never let me come along
Wave goodbye. Wave goodbye.

Vulnerable-Roxette

Everywhere I look I see her smile
Her absent-minded eyes
And she has kept me wondering for so long
How this thing could go wrong.

It seems to me that we are both the same
Playing the same game
But as darkness falls this true love falls apart
Into a riddle of her heart.

She's so vulnerable, like china in my hands
She's so vulnerable and I don't understand
I could never hurt the one I love
She's all I've got
But she's so vulnerable
Oh so vulnerable.

Days like these no one should be alone
No heart should hide away
Her touch is gently conquering my mind
There's nothing words can say.

She's coloured all the secrets of my soul
I've whispered all my dreams
But just as nighttime falls this vision falls apart
Into a riddle of her heart, yea.

She's so vulnerable, like china in my hands
She's so vulnerable and I don't understand
I could never hurt someone I love
She's all I've got
But she's so vulnerable
Oh so vulnerable.

Don't hide your eyes...

Sleeping In My Car-Roxette

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 youngSo 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-Roxette

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 skyTake 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-Roxette

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 nowWatch the sky!

Crash! Boom! Bang!-Roxete

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)-Roxette

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-Roxette

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...

Time went by
as I wrote your name in the sky,
fly fly away,
bye bye.

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.

Joyride-Roxtte

Things Will Never Be The Same-Roxette


Lay it down, pull my heart to the ground
Time's getting cold, now the leaves all turn hard and blue

And I know, when I gaze to the sun
No place to hide I got nowhere to run from you
Away from you

Hold me now, girl, I don't know when,
When we will ever meet again

That was then, baby this is now
I try to get over you

Losing you... things will never be the same
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
Things would never be...

In your hand, babe, I don't understand
You've got the eyes of a child but you hurt like a man, always do
Always do

Touch me now, girl I don't know when,
When we will ever meet again
That was then, baby this is now
Time won't get over you

Losing you... things will never be the same
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
Things would never be the same

Come Back (Before You Leave)-Roxette


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...

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.

So Far Away-Roxette
