Opportunity Nox

Well I liked you, I couldn't think of anything but you For a week I was in love with your hair-do I couldn't chew the smart things I used to I knew I was way over the moon When I met you, when I met you I didn't know what to do When I saw you, when I saw you You said : O-o-o-ooh I'm living in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox I'm living in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox I'm dying in a box but I'm out when opportunity rox on I'm sleeping and I'm dreaming so solo I saw you in the crowd in the front row You couldn't get it right at the disco You're dancing so much better in slo-mo When I met you, when I met you I didn't know what to do When I saw you, yea when I saw you I said : O-o-o-ooh I'm living in a box but i'm out when opportunity nox I'm living in a box but I'm out when opportunity nox I'm dying in a box but I'm out when opportunity rox on.

Little Miss Sorrow
(words and music by Per Gessle)

She had those magic eyes you could see from miles around She wore her summer dresses bright, quite like the sky She always came in colours, all smiles and daffodils She let her hair down in the breeze But every little thing had changed today Little Miss Sorrow Every little thing turned pale then faded Little Miss Sorrow The sunlight doesn't show All of the colours go out through the window She used to go out dancing, cool silver fingernails I used to watch her from the bar, following her car She always came in colours, she always kept control She painted yesterday in gold But every little thing turned grey today Little Miss Sorrow Every little thing turned pale then faded Little Miss Sorrow The sunlight doesn't show All the colours go, even the rainbow Allow me to introduce myself, I'm just a local boy She was my Little Miss Joy I want to call her name, my life won't be the same Dear God Every little thing had changed today Little Miss Sorrow Every little thing turned pale and faded Little Miss Sorrow Yes, every little thing turned pale and faded Little Miss Sorrow The weak replaced the strong, the bird forgot the song What's going on ? What's going on ? Tell Me, what's going on ?

CD BONUS

Stupid
(words and music by Per Gessle)

Everything you do you do so right The clothes you buy are awfully nice You wear your image bullet-proof Your stocks are always thru the roof You make me feel so stupid Make me feel stupid And you grew up, made in the sun They all loved you from Day 1 You always remembered everyone's name You always won the guessin' games, ooh yeah You made me feel so stupid Made me feel stupid And I'm not gonna take it anymore Not gonna take it anymore You always pick the perfect wine Your money is sho' nuff greener than mine Your wit pours out when you open your mouth My hometown is smaller than your house You make me feel so stupid, make me feel stupid And I'm not gonna take it anymore Not gonna take it anymore

Makin' love to you
(words and music by Per Gessle)

If there was a night to say, something to cherish on a rainy day If I close my eyes and go blind, I'm in the middle of the rush, rush Makin' love to you is all I ever wanted to do And I leave the world behind I laugh at all the things I've done for you If there was a dream to say I'm in the middle of the rush, rush Makin' love to you is all I ever wanted to do Makin' love, makin' love to you Makin' love, makin' love to you Your love is so sweet to recall, the greatest of them all I'm easy on my knees for you Makin' love to you I couldn't love you anymore than I do God knows it's all I ever wanted to do Makin' love to you is all I wanna do It's all I wanted to do It's all I ever wanted to do

Better off on her own
(words and music by Per Gessle)

My girl came home to me just the other day acting okay I was reading alone in my favourite room The TV was on May I be excused for not telling the truth? 'Cause she's gone She said she's better off on her own She turned her head much better off on her own My girl knocked on the door To the place I usually refer to as home I died, surely some tide Should have dimmed my eyes, small and surprised And God closed every gate The moon fell into the lake Boy, she's gone Her drift She's better off on her own She closed and she left, much better off on her own Sitting naked by the window sill Watching cars upon the hill Am I sleeping? I was dreaming For just a moment time stood still Hey! Better off on her own, better off on her own Now she's gone, she said She's better off on her own She turned her head Much better off on her own She's gone, she sighed She's better off on her own The tears I cried Much better off on her own My girl came home to me just the other day...

Bla bla bla bla bla (You broke my heart)
(words and music by Per Gessle)

You promised me it would last forever You said there's no way it could die Everything you ever told me was a bunch of lies Hey hey mam, I'm back on the outside You know that's not where I belong, no Every truth, everything I believed in has turned out wrong It's all bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart so many times A lot of bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart It's so clear when you scratch on the surface Going deeper deeper down All I wanted was to make you happy But baby, what's that sound? Well, baby, whats that sound? It's all bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart so many times A lot of bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart, you broke my heart You broke my heart All you ever cared for was to make you stronger No one I have known has looked so weak Na na, na na It's all bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart so many times A lot of bla bla bla bla bla A lot of bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart so many times A lot of bla bla bla bla bla You broke my heart X4 You broke my heart so many times
