One, two, three, four 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 color
Her loving is a wild dog
She's got the look

She's got the look (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

She's got the look (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

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

She goes (na na na na na na)
She's got the look

She's got the look (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

What in the world can make you so blue
When everything I'll ever do I'll do for you
And I go la la la la la (na na na na na na)
She's got the look
She goes (na na na na na na)
She's got the look, she's got the look
She goes (na na na na na na)
She's got the look, she's got the look
She goes (na na na na na na)

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

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!

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
Hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey

Time has come by
Time has gone by

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

Hey baby, I would die for you
Sleeping single, won't you, won't you change your way?
Sleeping single, I will pray for you to stay
Hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey

Won't you change your mind?
Oh baby, oh

I've got a hot 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 night 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.

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...

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...

Chances

length: 4:08
composer: Per Gessle
lyricist: Per Gessle
Hear my call here and everywhere
I've been walking the streets in despair
One more fire turns a shade of gray
One more tear is lost in the rain

And I say that I love you, I say that I need you
Baby I leave you a sign of desire
No shadow will haunt you, no heart will desert you
No one will hurt you, no space and no time

Got to, got to, you got to got to take your chances on me
Like the river will lead the water to the sea
Take on me, take your chances on me
Don't ever let it be, don't ever let it be

There's a night when you close your eyes
Around a dream that shines like the sun
Everyone knows it's beautiful
Tell me why you want to dream it alone

And I say that I love you, I say that I need you
Baby I leave you the lines in my palm
No darkness will get you, no heart will desert you
Nothing can hurt you or do you any harm

Got to, got to, you got to got to take your chances on me
Like the river will lead the water to the sea
Take on me, take your chances on me
Don't walk away from me, don't walk away from me

Say that I love you, say that I need you
Baby I leave you a sign of desire

Got to, got to, you got to got to take your chances on me
Like the river will lead the water to the sea
Take on me, take your chances on me
Don't ever let it be

Take on me
Like the river will lead the water to the sea
Take on me, take your chances on me
Don't walk away from me, don't walk away from me

Don't walk away from me
Take on me
Don't go, go away from me
Take your chances on me

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...

[Chorus:]
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
Oh just a little bit dangerous...

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

[Chorus]

[Chorus to Fade]

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.

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 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 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.

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.
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.
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.
And there are voices that want to be heard.
So much to mention but you can't find the words.
The sense of magic, the beauty that's been
When love was wilder than the wind.
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.
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.
