LYRICS

Per Gessle
No One Makes it on Her Own

Have you ever had the feeling You take it all for granted You wake up every morning And expect to rise Have you ever had a moment To look into the mirror To find a person Who won’t open her eyes Have you ever felt a presence Or is it all in the past, dear So mesmerizing It chills you to the bone Have you ever been in love And overcome that first fear Well, then you know No one makes it on her own Did you ever catch a sunset Right across the ocean The universe revealed And it didn’t make sense at all When you came into my world Causing quite

Rudy & Me

I’m pretty sure I can fly Any day I will try To make lines in the sky And I’ve got a reason for this Got a reason to kiss Any moment of bliss Rudy and me are simple and free And so easy Rudy and me are simple and free It’s so easy And we ride so close I keep holding on That’s the way it goes I keep holding on And I keep having this dream Where it is what it seems All the lights turn to green And I’m pretty sure how I feel It feels cool to reveal I think she’s looking at me Rudy and me are simple and free And so easy Rudy and me are

LYRICS

One of These Days

Time takes a breath I feel it on my skin A time for rest Before the new day breaks So blue, so blue The skies of lovers eyes It’s a time for peace But how long must I wait How long must I wait One of these days I know I’ll wake up lying in summer arms Until then I will fight the cold with Memories Sha la la To keep me warm One of these days The sand will spell your name Inside a heart One of these better days Sha la la la Taste the wine of a much sweeter time One of these days I know I’ll wake up lying in summer arms Until then I will fig

LYRICS

For the First Time

Minutes are running slow Seconds feel more like days Days since I let you go That’s how it feels anyway Sometimes I forget Love’s a different language Known by the heart A foreign tongue I’m hearing for the first time A promise made I’m meaning for the first time Old friends like solitude Quiet and empty space Are enemies since finding you Just loneliness by other names Sometimes I forget Love’s a different language Spoken by the heart A foreign tongue I’m hearing for the first time A promise made I’m meaning for the first time So

LYRICS

Name You Beautiful

Oh I had a sense of doubt I thought I was fallin’ out God, it felt so alone But the right move in the dark And a Saturday in the park Made you the dynamo Hey, it’s got to be simple A broken heart can never keep time What you’re doin’ to me What you’re doin’ to me I have to spell incredible I want to name you beautiful Pretty hard to believe It’s pretty hard to believe You make the worry minimal Got to name you beautiful Without a master plan You’re bound for the garbage can Oh it’s a hard nut to crack On an ordinary day You su

LYRICS

It Came Too Fast

They rescued her body From out of the water Fighting the tide that was Too strong to save her Had taken her under It came too fast The summertime air Was closing around me No one could cry ‘cos Our eyes were all empty My breath in the warm winds It came too fast I was eight years old And the sickness wave Was coming Until my mother turned my face Away from the ocean I wasn’t a child anymore It came too fast His life was so strange Believed it so special But time only proved How he hadn’t changed things The avant garde one Turned into

Simple Sound

You never bothered to be cynical You made it easy to be beautiful You challenged all things possible A fire found inside an icicle A simple sound in the air Mahi Nana Mahi Nana A simple sound in the air Mahi Nana Nana I almost thought it might be criminal To watch you sleep made me dependable Every hour seemed unbreakable Every second available A simple sound in the air Mahi Nana Mahi Nana A simple sound in the air Mahi Nana Nana I look at your face while you’re dancing While you’re dancing While you’re dancing You’re taken away While y

Per Gessle
The Finest Prize

She greeted the morning sun All the seagulls were flying low and she She started her daily routine Without thinking without knowing She smiled when she thought of Jim All the satellites were standing by and she She hoped she could tune him in When she closed her eyes Oh her life was good and she She’d won the finest prize and she She didn’t feel the pain It was all in the past Gone, almost forgotten He stayed with the garden beds Any hour any given day and he He nursed the lilies and violets Treating them like friends Oh his life was good a

There’s a Place

I’d give anything I would give anything for kinder winds To leave this winter cold Piercing like needles on our skin But there’s a place A place that promises a soft summer day Behind the grey I swear I feel a change Hey, will you stay with me Until the river’s flowing free again And will you follow me Into a Promiseland we’ve never seen We’ll wear the sun Like golden blankets To wrap around our arms And dip our toes into the waters warm I’d give anything I would give anything for kinder winds To leave this winter cold Hurting like
