Me & You & Terry & Julie
(words and music, Per Gessle)

Terry is an old teacher He’s readin’ the paper in the church Julie used to be famous Portrayin’ a bright-eyed Mother Earth Well, how about you? Do you want a love that lasts forever How about you? Or do you want to spend the night together With someone so blue That she doesn’t know what to do Her love’s a big hole in the shoe That’s the truth How about you? Terry’s foldin’ the paper And yawns at a headline, cocky and crude Julie thinks he’s a charmer Cos he’s got the proper attitude Well, how about you? Don’t you want a love that lasts forever How about you? Or do you want to spend the night together With someone so blue That she doesn’t know what to do Her love’s a big stone in the shoe That’s the truth How about you?

Lover Lover Lover
(words and music, Per Gessle)

Could you show me what love is about? Could you show me what love is about? No clue, no key, just a sense of a doubt Could you tell me what it’s all about?

Could you show me what love is about? And if you haven’t got the time, it’s all right I’m a lover lover lover

Turn of the Tide
(words and music, Per Gessle)

If you really need some water Pray for rain If you’re wakin’ up cold Make a fire inside If you want a tree that leads to heaven Plant the seeds that grow If you need something to believe in To the turn of the tide To the glow of the moon To the sound of the rain To the sweet scent of June I’ve been walkin’ alone Thinkin’ about me and you And love will never be easy How hard I tried To cover up my cryin’ To wipe the tears from my eyes But if you really need somebody I hope I’m close behind To put my arms around your world To the turn of the tide To the glow of the moon To the sound of the rain To the sweet sweet scent of June I’ve been walkin’ alone I’ve been thinkin’ about me and you

Touched by the Hand of God
(words and music, Per Gessle)

Tea at 8 o’clock I took the dog for a walk in the morning I never really liked him but let’s keep that between you and me I ran into this woman at a crowded cafe’ There’s nothin’ else to say, she took my breath away She said: -“I’m Prudence, I just came out to play out of charm school” How on earth could it be I’m touched by the hand of God Pretty hard to believe Hey, I’m touched by the hand of God She’s got her mind set on me Yea, I’m blessed with the power of love The power of love Heaven in her smile I took a break for a while with good reason Drownin’ in her eyes I was mesmerized and buried and gone I guess my kind of talkin’ was misplaced like hell just like the “funk” in Art Garfunkel but hey sweet Prudence, you’re doin’ so well out of charm school How on earth could it be I’m touched by the hand of God Pretty hard to believe Don’t you know I’m touched by the hand of God She’s got her mind set on me Yea, I’m blessed with the power of love The power of love She said she had a ‘57 Chevrolet There’s nothin’ more to say, she took my breath away Hey sweet Prudence, won’t you come out to play out of charm school
 

Easy Way Out
(words and music, Per Gessle)

This heart is sold very cheap to any loner This heart is put up for sale by its owner And it’s really a heart I can recommend I promise I used to call it a friend I’ll take the easy way out I’d like to find a way to take command I guess I’ll take the easy way out And try to find a way to understand This heart of gold is in perfect condition This heart is bold and chosen for a mission And if it’s been broken - well, no one can tell Cos I know somebody who hides it so well I’ll take the easy way out I’d like to find a way to make a stand Don’t you know I’ll take the easy way out And try to find a way to understand Yea, I’ll take the easy way out I’d love to find a way to take command I guess I’ll take the easy way out And try to find a way to understand Try to find a way to understand

It's Possible (Version One)
(words and music, Per Gessle)

Got to grab a pen a paper Got to write a tiny note to you I can’t getcha out of my system There’s somethin’ very difficult about you It’s possible - When I get that feelin’ It’s so revealin’ It’s possible - When you gimme that look I just wanna… Oh Oh Oh People tell me: all the wrong things People tell me: I don’t have a clue There’s somethin’ in the air - I just know it!

Perfect Excuse
(words and music, Per Gessle)

I wouldn’t come alone I took my memories along If there’s something that I’ve learned You can’t deny the way the past dictates each dawn It’s not that I’m afraid God knows I’ve made my set of rounds It’s just the way you look (it feels) tonight That makes me lose the plot, what’s really goin’ down Too hot to handle Too hard to lose Fallin’ in love with you Is the perfect excuse You make me feel at ease But I know the final show If there’s something that I’ve learned It’s better to have left before you have to go It’s not that I’m afraid God knows I’ve made my set of rounds You got that twinkle in your eye That makes me lose my grip, what’s really goin’ down Too hot to handle Too hard to lose Fallin’ in love with you Is the perfect excuse Too many heartbeats Hidin’ the truth Fallin’ in love with you Is the perfect excuse

Excuse Me Sir, Do You Want Me to Check on Your Wife ?
(words and music, Per Gessle)

The guy she married was an innocent man A fake guitarist in an 80’s band He never knew when it got way out of hand With her love She was a woman of a different kind She had him lookin’ where there’s nothin’ to find He always wondered why he was willin’ to die For her love Now, that was his life - “Excuse me, sir, do you want me to check on your wife?” - “Naah, she’s doin’ fine, I’m sure she’s doin’ alright” He was the silent type, he tried not to speak She made him promises she tried not to keep She only wanted him to sugar her tea With his love Hey, that was his life - “Excuse me, sir, do you want me to check on your wife?” - “No, she’s doin’ fine, I’m sure she’s doin’ alright”

Angel Passing
(words and music, Per Gessle)

She’s an angel passin’ thru the room - Would you like to know her? She’s an angel passin’ thru my room - Would you like to know her? The red setting sun Feathers, down and fields of heather Beautiful She’s then and now, forever When I ask I ask her for a dance - Every time I see her We leave the beat, obey the laws of chance - Every time I see her Her sweet surprise She wears it so it shows she never Hides her eyes She wears it where it shows She’s an angel passin’ thru the room Like an angel passin’ thru the room I wish I could Save our souls alone and together Beautiful We’re Then And Now Forever Forever
