Roxette - Look Sharp!



The Look
written by: Per Gessle

 

Walking like a man,

hitting like a hammer,

she's a juvenile scam.

Never was a quitter,

tasty like a raindrop,

she's got the look.

Heavenly bound cause heaven's got a number when she's spinning me around,

kissing is a colour

Her loving is a wild dog, she's got the look.

 

She's got the look.

She's got the look.

What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue

When everything I'll ever do I'll do for you and I go: la la la la la

she's got the look.

 

Fire in the ice naked to the t-bone is a lover's disguise.

Banging on the head drum,

shaking like a mad bull,

she's got the look.

Swaying to the band,

moving like a hammer she's a miracle man

Loving is the ocean, kissing is the wet sand,

she's got the look.

And she goes: na na na na na na na na.

 

Dressed For Success
written by: Per Gessle

 

Tried to make it little by little,

tried to make it bit by bit on my own

Quit the job, the grey believers,

another town where I get close to the bone.

Whatcha gonna tell your brother? -- oh oh oh

whatcha gonna tell your father? -- I don't know!

Whatcha gonna tell your mother? -- Let me go...

I'm gonna get dressed for success

shaping me up for the big time, baby.

Get dressed for success

shaping it up for your love yea yea yea.

I'm not afraid, a trembling flower,

I'll feed your heart and blow the dust from your eyes

and in the dark things happen faste

I love the way you sway your hips next to mine.

Whatcha gonna tell your brother? -- oh oh oh

whatcha gonna tell your father? -- I don't know!

Whatcha gonna tell your mother? -- Let me go...

I'm gonna get dressed for success,

hitting a spot for the big time, baby

Get dressed for success shaping it up for your love.

Look sharp!

 

Sleeping Single
written by: Per Gessle

 

Here's the house.

Here's the city and the stream.

Here's the father to my dream.

Here's the lost and lonely look in your eyes.

When you leave I will break down and cry.

Sleeping single -- I will wait for you. I'm sleeping single --

'til you change your mind. Sleeping single -- I will wait for you 'til time has gone by.

I'll pay the price for all the love you poured like rain

"toujours l'amour" over again, but the midnight chills are getting so rough and the bed is big enough for both of us.

Sleeping single -- I will wait for you. I'm sleeping single --

'til you change your mind.

Sleeping single -- I will wait for you 'til time has gone by.

Sleeping single -- I would die for you. I'm sleeping single -- won't you change your way.

Sleeping single -- I will pray for you to stay, he-he-hey...he-he-hey...

 

Paint
written by: Per Gessle

I've got a chilly feeling I don't understand. I've got to run through this minute like a hurricane. I've got to tighten my wire from the sense to the soul. I find my back to the wall when it's time to go. I've got to know is that your heartbeat?

Paint...me right. Can you feel the heat in me tonight? Oh I, I'm the pearl...Paint your love all over my world.

I get a love shock/electric from the touch of your hand. I'm getting lost in the riddles of the modern man. I've got it up down all around tied to the bone. Hey there's a strange situation on the late nite show. I've got to know is that your heartbeat?

Paint...me right. Can you feel the heat in me tonight? Oh I, I'm the pearl...Paint your love all over my world. Do it right, I can feel the woman in me tonight. Oh I, I'm the pearl...Paint your love all over my world.

 

Dance Away
written by: Marie Fredriksson & Per Gessle

 

There's a hidden meaning in everything he says, every close encounter, every kiss, every caress. Even the truth has got that bitter taste of a lie. Well, I can read his lips but I can't read his mind.

I can see him dance away now oh oh -- oh oh oh.

He was one of the kind that seems so hard to find. There's a change of weather, now he leaves me far behind. That I don't matter to him came as such a surprise. Well, I can read his lips, I thought I read his eyes.

And I can see him dance away now...

 

Cry
written by: Marie Fredriksson & Per Gessle

 

Living here without you is not an easy way of life. I spend my time without you, I try to make it all worthwhile. Standing in a rainfall coming down from the sky.

Why should I cry over you? Why should I cry cry cry over you?

I keep on thinking about you. I've got no private pride to hide. I've built my world around you like a call without reply. My love has lost direction, she's got the sun in her eyes.

Why should I cry...

Hearing your footsteps, loud on my stairs (a-walking...)--living without you. Feeling the sweet sweet smell of love in the air (I can feel it...)--living without you. Kissing the face that I see everywhere but I'm living without you, living without.

Why should I cry cry cry over you?

Oh, hearing your footsteps, loud on my stairs (a-walking...)--living without you. Kissing the face that I see everywhere but

I'm living without you, I'm living without.

Cry cry cry over you? Why should I cry...

 

Dangerous
written by: Per Gessle

 

Ooh, just a little bit dangerous...

You pack your bag. You take control. You're moving into my heart and into my soul.

Get out of my way! Get out of my sight! I won't be walking on thin ice to get through the night.

Hey, where's your work? What's your game? I know your business but I don't know your name...

Hold on tight, you know she's a little bit dangerous. She's got what it takes to make ends meet the eyes of a lover that hit like heat. You know she's a little bit dangerous.

You turn around, so hot and dry. You're hiding under a halo, your mouth is alive.

Get out of my way! Get out of my sight! I'm not attracted to go-go deeper tonight.

Hey, what's your word? What's your game? I know your business but I don't know your name...

Hold on tight, you know she's a little bit dangerous. She's got what it takes to make ends meet the eyes of a lover that hit like heat. You know she's a little bit dangerous. Just a little bit dangerous.

Hey hey hey, what's your word? What's your game? I know your business but I don't know your name...

Hold on tight, you know she's a little bit dangerous. She's got what it takes to make ends meet the eyes of a lover that hit like heat. You know she's a little bit dangerous......

She's armed and she's extremely dangerous...

 

Half A Woman, Half A Shadow
written by: m Marie Frederiksson/l Per Gessle

 

Wash my pain away, cause I'm half a woman, half a shadow.

Daylight is breaking again. I hide in the dark. I'm watching the rain. You're out of touch. You're out of reach. What can I say, I never wanted it this way.

Love sleeps all alone. The cold telephone, I know the heart. Yes, I know the kind. The kisses of fire, turning to grey. I never wanted it this way. I always wanted you to stay.

Wash my pain away, cause I'm half a woman, half a shadow.

Love always change with the trees, the spring and the leaves, the waves on the sea. Wilder than light the wind in your eyes led me astray. I never wanted it this way. I always wanted you to stay.

Oh I need you, yes I need you. Give me a reason to believe.

 

View From A Hill
written by: Per Gessle

 

Raging waves sweep this heavy heart. Cold is the colour of the dark. Find a byway and climb that hill, watch the thunder cast a spell. What did you gain from love? -- Don't ask me! All for the sweetest thrill...

I see a view from a hill -- oh oh. I see it perfectly clear and I cry for the dreams that you kill -- oh oh, view from a hill, and it's only a moment away.

Love is like a rainfall, hard on the head, no escape though you're soaking wet. Leave me blinded by your light. Leave me stranded alone tonight. What did you gain from love? -- Don't ask me! All for the cheapest thrill...

I see a view from a hill -- oh oh. I see it perfectly clear and I cry for the dreams that you kill -- oh oh, view from a hill, and it's only a motion away.

 

(I Could Never) Give You Up
written by: Per Gessle

 

I could never give you up, the way you make true love shine.

I've been hiding, lost in the love of another. I've followed the moon and a song and I thought it would take me forever to find a place where I belong. I watch a rainbow rise. I give you all I've got.

I could never give you up, the way you make my love shine. I could never give you up, the way you make true love shine.

I believe you when you say you don't want to be lonely. I'll carry your heart like a bridge when you need all the time you can find to get the hurt out of your mind. I'll watch the rain go by and give you all I've got

Cause I could never give you up...

 

Shadow Of A Doubt
written by: Per Gessle & M.P. Persson

I heard your heart, you held it close to me. The wild embrace, the silent sea, a whisper of imagery for Lovers Supreme.

But now I'm lost in the crowd, no shadow of a doubt it's all over now, no shadow of a doubt.

You changed the dream. You changed the scenery, the tender touch, the urge to breathe, there under a lovelit sun what's lost could be found.

But now, no trace of a sound, no shadow of a doubt. I'm faraway bound. No shadow of a doubt.

 

Listen To Your Heart
written by: Per Gessle & M.P. Persson

 

I know there's something in the wake of your smile.

I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yea.

You've built a love but that love falls apart.

Your little piece of heaven turns too dark.

Chorus:

Listen to your heart when he's calling for you.

Listen to your heart there's nothing else you can do.

I don't know where you're going and I don't know why, but listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile.

The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yea.

They're swept away and nothing is what is seems, the feeling of belonging to your dreams.

And there are voices that want to be heard.

So much to mention but you can't find the words.

The scent of magic, the beauty that's been when love was wilder than the wind.

 

It Must Have Been Love

 

(It must have been love, but it's over now)

Lay a whisper on my pillow

Leave the winter on the ground

I wake up lonely, I stare at silence

In the bedroom all around

Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away

It must have been love, but it's over now

It must have been good, but I lost it somehow

It must have been love, but it's over now

From the moment we touched till the time I ran out

Make believing we're together

That I'm sheltered by your heart

But in and outside I turn to water

Like a teardrop in your arms

And it's a hard winter's day, I dream away

It must have been love, but it's over now

It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without

It must have been love, but it's over now

It's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows

It must have been love, but it's over now

It must have been good, but I lost it somehow

It must have been love, but it's over now

From the moment we touched till the time I ran out

Yeah it must have been love, but it's over now

It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without

It must have been love, but it's over now

It's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows

(It must have been love, but it's over now) (repeats out)
