LYRICS

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Have Another Go

Have another go You gotta go It’s time to move on Move on I’ll be forgotten with the setting sun Have another go You gotta go It’s time to move on Move on I wish this conversation came undone There’s a neverending line of funny people to watch Here’s another cup of coffee that I put my trust in There’s hardly any reason to get sentimental Some days are really overrated anyway Have another go You gotta go It’s time to move on Move on I’ll be forgotten with the setting sun Whatever happened to the ordinary record store?

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Shelter from the Storm

I believe the world is turning and the waves still find the shore I believe the sun is burning like it always has before Still I long for you to find me when the stars come out at night There’s a darkness deep inside me when the moon is full and bright Shelter from the storm How I long for someone warm Shelter from the storm How I long for someone warm To give me shelter from the storm To give me shelter from the storm They say you have to take your chances while the wheel is still in spin For you’ll never find the answers if you leave them

LYRICS

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Couldn’t Believe My Luck

I couldn’t believe my luck I could have looked the other way I couldn’t believe my luck can I see you again again I didn’t catch your name the future will never be the same I couldn’t believe my luck can I see you again again I shake my head and lose myself Just hang around Stop that sound I need a break To leave the ground It’s time to take off I couldn’t believe my luck I could have walked the other way It really wears me out can I see you again again I shake my head and lose myself Just hang around Stop that sound I need a break

LYRICS

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Love is Loud

I had a dream last night kissing in a downtown bar Lost in a rush that was able to last that would last forever But I left it all far behind I had to run I ran out of time A desire inside to hide in the rain My pleasure was your pain Love is loud love is loud My pleasure was your pain I left my single bed I walked around the tiny room I felt so alone I had to give you a call I knew you were sleeping But I left it all way behind I had to run and ran out of time The trickiest thing is the need to explain My pleasure is your pain Love is loud love

LYRICS

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Save Me a Place

When you come around doesn’t matter when I’m soakin’ up the sound I dare to face the bend And I won’t miss a beat attack and then sustain Lose myself in love dryin’ in the rain And I will look at you when you look at me Mighty like a mountain precious like a sea Save me a place next to you Save me a place next to you That’s where I wanna be That’s where I wanna be Almost like a prayer when I go to bed Underneath the layers deep inside my head And I won’t miss a beat attack and then sustain Lose myself in love dryin’ in the rai

Mile-Melter

To keep it up Is not keepin’ me up To keep it up Is not pickin’ me up To keep it up Is not lickin’ me up To keep it up Is not up up up up To hold it down Is not takin’ me down To hold it down Is not bringin’ me down To hold it down Is not pushin’ me down Down down dee dee Deep deep down down Down down dee dee Deep deep down down Down down dee dee Deep deep down Words + music by Per Gessle.

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Stranger on the Bus

The answer in the open the question in the mind When you close your eyelids I wonder what you’ll find Laughter turns to teardrops Beauty becomes dirt Some notes should not be written Some music is just made to hurt What have we become, a silver cloud of dust You’re just a stranger on a bus I knew I thought I loved, it’s so hard to adjust You, the stranger on a bus Nothing has been altered everything has changed The streets, the mighty buildings They all appear the same I’m feelin’ kinda funny Can’t seem to find my way I know so many

Sugar Rush

Saturday 6 a.m. woke up for certain Blinded by a summer sky guess I failed drawin’ the curtain Curtain Lookin’ at dreams spilled on my pillow Shady and lean most of them seemed kinda hollow narrow I got stains all over my shirt and I’m all shattered and covered in dirt I’m hidin’ in my head being crushed lookin’ for a sugar rush a sugar rush In the desert when I’m dyin’ of thirst I wanna grab a kiss but first things first I’m bangin’ on my brain being crushed lookin’ for a sugar rush a sugar rush Leavin’ my shell pourin

Message of Love

With a fever rising high Your mind is set to take off To the sky With your candle burning low There is blackness darkness A secret code Peace This is a message of love this is a message of love When the tide is really high Moondancers make waves In the sky When the spark is really low And you don’t have a clue Where to go Shine your light on me Hold a message of love This is a message of love Peace Take this message of love this is a message of love Words + music by Per Gessle.

LYRICS

Mono Mind Per Gessle
Tell Him I Said Hi!

I was a dreamer then I’m still the same Nothing in my world has really changed (say hi!) She had a plastic pearl this brown-eyed girl She pressed the button to play but then she slipped away (say hi!) I was the lonely silent one who stared into the sun If you see him pass by, the moonlight in his eyes Tell him I said hi!

I Found My Soul at Marvingate

Just leave it neat and tidy No fake no confusion no cracks no beginning no end I was walking on water I moved between the raindrops Out of tune and out of the blue Somewhere on the sidewalk I bumped into a stranger I swear she looked exactly like you I found my soul at Marvingate, hey I was told it was too late I thought I’d never get it back Jumpin’ Jack had painted it black I gave my heart to a simple plan, you’re all i want you’re all I am Oh days of June they can’t die young can’t die young I won’t let them Just leave it neat

Best Way to Travel

I saw you in the paper or someone looked a bit like you You starred in a space movie or someone had the same tattoo Outside the trees are blue the snow is turning green Hey Maureen Nothing is what it seems You’re only in my dreams It’s the best way to travel Best way to travel I’m setting a small table I’m waiting by the phone Some faces by my window but I’d rather be alone Well I know I should pretend I’m making lots of friends Hey Maureen Nothing is for real We’re floating in my dream Might be the best way to travel Nothing is w

Down by the Riverside

Down by the riverside I lost myself I lost my pride Down by the riverside I lost myself to the tide I kneeled before the beauty Floating free I drank the rain No need to disappear My only wish was to be near Down by the riverside The night was young a bashful breeze Down by the riverside Rewrite the diaries darling please Haven’t got got got any oh I’ve got no regrets Haven’t got got got any I’ve got no regrets Down by the riverside The night was young a bashful breeze Down by the riverside Rewrite the diaries darling please Words + mus

In Control

What is life you ask anything can happen fine with me just as long as I’m in control in control control I appreciate your support your mint green passport it doesn’t look like mine at all I’m in control With different moves we play different games you make me feel I’m on a roll I’m in control I’m in control I’m in control Just leave it neat and tidy no fake no confusion no cracks no beginning no end What is life you ask looking through the window you kick it in you pack it up but you’re in control Life lies between your thig

BEHIND MONO MIND - directly from the Robot himself: SHELTER FROM THE STORM (vinyl only) I wrote this in Swedish in 1982 for my first solo album but I never recorded it properly. It was originally called “Segla på ett moln” which translates “Sailing on a Cloud.” I gave it to Anne-Lie Rydé instead. She’s a very talented singer from Gothenburg (also signed to EMI at the time) and she nailed it and had a big hit with it. She still performs it and it has become a somewhat famous song in Sweden over the years. Already back in the early ‘80s I was trying to get my songs covered internationally so I had “Segla på ett moln” translated by a friend of mine, DJ and great lyricist Hasse Huss. Hasse, by the way, wrote lots of lyrics for Swedish singer Mikael Rickfors (together they created “Yeah Yeah” on Cyndi Lauper’s massive “She’s So Unusual” album which probably paid their bar bills for a couple of years…) Anyway, Diana Ross got interested in recording “Shelter from the Storm” in 1984, it was on hold for her for six months, but it never happened. In 2017 I found Hasse’s lyrics, I still liked them, and I thought we should have a go with Mono Mind and Cooky. I sent some ideas to Andreas Broberger and he came up with a great production angle so off we went. Not bad, huh? #behindmonomind

The Daily Roxette

BEHIND MONO MIND - from Dr. Robot himself. TELL HIM I SAID HI! The first recording of THISH was sung entirely by Dr. Robot and was called “Tell Her I Said Hi!”. It sounded fab. The sound of Dr. Robot’s voice on the verses on this one is truly amazing. It’s my favorite Dr. Robot-sound together with “Marvingate” and “Down by the Riverside.” However, when I suddenly had lots of Mono Mind-tracks piled up I felt I needed a little bit more “flesh and blood” when it came to the voices so I re-wrote it and re-recorded it and had Cooky join the party and sing on the choruses. I love this one and I especially adore Clarence’s hypnotic piano part in the middle. #behindmonomind
