Warm holiday greetings from TDR!


As we approach the end of the year and look toward the possibilities of a new year, we at The Daily Roxette want to wish our readers a very Happy Holiday and more importantly, a Peaceful 2003 full of good health for us all.

  We're delighted that under special arrangement with Sony Music Entertainment AB, we're able to let you listen to a track from Peter Jöback's Christmas album, "Jag Kommer Hem Igen Till Jul" as our Holiday Greeting to you. This song, "Varmt Igen," was written by Per Gessle.

  Jöback's album is a huge success in Sweden… topping the album charts there. Additionally, Peter toured Sweden with an enormously successful holiday concert and he's had not one, but two television specials this December. If you've never heard Peter sing before, you're in for a treat!

Varmt Igen

Lyrics: Per Gessle (translation by Thomas Evensson/TDR)

Det blev varmt igen

jag hade blivit van vid kappan

allt blev ljust igen

förvandligen total



Hissen fungerade

jag brukade springa

uppför trappan

solen blev en raket

mot min tapet

mitt tak

boom boom



När du kom

du stod i blom

så underbar

som det var i en dröm jag var

och jag tror nog

att du förstod

när jag sa

att jag alltid vill vara kvar



Det blev varmt igen

ett känslobrus så rent från svärta

så självklart på alla sätt

så märkligt rätt du kom



För den svarta sorg

som finns i varje ensamt hjärta

är stor som ett regnigt torg

en trasig

gammal korg

helt tom



När du kom

du stod i blom

så underbar

som det var i en dröm jag var

och jag tror nog

at du förstod

när jag sa

att jag alltid vill vara kvar

att jag alltid vill stanna kvar



Där du stod

du stod och log

så underbar

var det som i en dröm jag var

och jag tror nog

att du förstod

när jag sa

att jag alltid vill vara kvar

att jag alltid vill stanna kvar

att jag alltid vill stanna kvar

att jag alltid vill stanna kvar
It turned warm again

I’d gotten used to my coat

Everything turned bright again

A total transformation



The elevator worked

I used to run

Up the stairs

The sun became a rocket

Against my wallpaper,

My ceiling

Boom boom



When you came

You were in full bloom

So wonderful

As if I were in a dream

And I do believe

That you understood

When I said

That I want to remain forever



It turned warm again

An emotional turmoil so pure from darkness

So obvious in every way

So strangely right that you came



Because the dark sorrow

That dwells in every lonely heart

Is as big as a rainy market square

A broken

Old basket

Completely empty



When you came

You were in full bloom

So wonderful

As if I were in a dream

And I do believe

That you understood

When I said

That I want to remain forever

That I want to stay forever



There you stood

You stood and smiled

So wonderful

It was like I were in a dream

And I do believe

That you understood

When I said

That I always want remain here forever

That I always want to stay forever

That I always want to stay forever

That I always want to stay forever
