A thing about you
(words and music, Per Gessle)

I pick up the phone I'm dialin' your number while I pray you're at home, At home and alone cos I can't function on my own and I'll never stop believin' The reapin' is done you are the one The radio is on but the sound is all gone and I want to walk out in the sun But lately that's been very hard to do I've got a thing about you and I don't really know what to do cos I've got a thing about you, hey you I pick up the phone I'm dialin' that number and my heart like a stone waits for the tone "Oh I can't make it on my own and I'll never stop believin'" I know what is right and this is so wrong Alone in my bed, better off on my own The TV is on but the colours are gone And lately you've been paintin' my world blue I've got a thing about you and I don't really care what you do I've got a thing about you yea you Lately you've been paintin' my world blue I've got a thing about you and I don't really know what to do I've got a thing about you Hopin' this story cuts through Yea, I've got a thing about you A thing about you

Breathe
(words and music, Per Gessle)

I've got to come down, I've been awake far too long My eyes look torn, they were so strong I wore the crown, I wrote the song, now it's fading My heart was open like a window to a summer breeze I breathed your love, I filled my lungs and veins And I breathed your love until I felt the pain and like rain it slipped away I tried to find out what love was really all about Behind the curtain waits the sky It's rare I feel enough to cry, I'm drying up inside My life was open like a window to the summer breeze I breathed your love, I filled my lungs and veins And I breathed your love until I met the pain and like rain it slipped away just like a little rain I breathed your love and nothing stayed the same Yes, I breathed your love and filled my heart in vain Cos like rain it slipped away, just like rain it swept away

CD BONUS

The weight of the world
(words and music, Per Gessle)

Sunday morning I'm still hiding in bed Listen to the rythm of the rain above my head And all that I've said, I should've save the love for you But what could I do ? If I've been talking to the wall It wouldn't make any difference to you, that's the art of being you I think I carry the weight of the world, sometimes you loose The weight of the world, sometimes you cry I kissed you smile, I wish you'll stay the night I put my arms around your golden hair and turn of the lights Oh I loved to watch your eyes when I make love to you Weight little world, sometimes you loose The weight of the world, sometimes you cry

It hurts
(words and music, Per Gessle)

Can you tell me where it leads when it's never ending Can you tell me where to go when no-one's home And I know, You know, It hurts It hurts to be alone You're on your own, on a one-way train going down Can you tell me what to say when there's no-one listening Can you show me what to do when all is done Oh I know, You know, it hurts It hurts to be alone, the plan has gone wrong Like a runaway train going down Oh, going down down down, going down? Yes I know, You know , it hurts It hurts to be alone, you're on your own On a one way train going down

See me
(words, Per Gessle and music Marie Fredriksson)

With the moon and the sun in his eyes he's arriving And I don't know what I'd do without him I got life suddenly See, see me, I've got nothing to hide See me, I've got nothing to hide See me I'm leaving my heart in the palm of his hand so gently I know he knows that I love him Though I've never said is there an easy way See, see me, I've got nothing to hide See me, I've got nothing to hide, see me Coming home, I'm coming home It feels like I'm coming home Coming home, I'm coming home

Every day
(words, Per Gessle and music, Marie Fredriksson)

Every day I see him coming, every day he walks on by Life used to be so plain and simple before he came into my life Every night I keep on dreaming, every night I take him home We always go to bed together, I always wake up all alone Oh it's strange, so strange what he's doing to me Oh it's strange so strange, did this ever happen to you The way it has happened to me, the way it just happened to me Every day outside my window, always minutes close to eight I wish he stayed a little longer but his bus is never late Every night we're dancing slowly, I play the music he adores Like Sinatra then we're talking all important things for sure Oh it's strange, so strange what he's doing to me Oh it's strange so strange, did this ever happen to you The way it has happened to me, the way it just happened to me Oh it's strange so strange what he's doing to me Oh so strange real strange, did this ever happen to you The way it has happened to me, the way it just happened to me
