G E M I N I (1985)

Slowly

We take so much
for granted you and I
We share a life
in one dimension
Our problems always
seem to cloud the sky
Yet we don't pay them
much attention
And with every day
we drift apart
I can feel it in my heart
Somehow you're not
the man I used to know
And though a part of me
still needs you so
There's something wrong
And I feel my love die
Slowly

No angry words
and no heart-rending scenes
and we should take it
as a warning
We keep on going through
the old routines
Exchanging kisses
in the morning
And with every day
we drift apart
And a fear is in my heart
I read the signs
and I should be mature
And yet a child
could not be more unsure
There's something wrong
And I feel my love die
Slowly, slowly

Our passion's just
a distant memory
And in its place
a dull frustration
A cold indifference
where there used to be
at least a frequent irritation
But a feeling still
of tenderness
and of pity, so I guess
If you need someone
in your arms tonight
I'll be that someone
but it won't feel right
Cause something's wrong
And I know my love dies
Slowly
Somehow you're not
the one I used to know
And though a part of me
still needs you so
There's something wrong
And I feel my love die
Slowly, slowly

Too Much Love Is Wasted

You don't think I know
you've been watching me
with a sad, bewildered
look in your eyes
Suddenly I am almost becoming
a stranger
Now's the crucial moment
the hour of truth
No more dodging
no excuses or lies
So if you have the feeling
our love is in danger
Please don't give it up
give it one more day
Don't you know it's much too
precious to throw away

Too much love is wasted
when the flame is burning low
and I should know
I let it wither
when I should have made it grow
and so I lost one lover
and I don't intend to lose another
Too much love is wasted
when the passion's fading out
you start to doubt
you lose the sight of
what it's really all about
The end of the beginning
let's not make it
the beginning of the end

You know how it started
and so do I
All is magic when
a new love is born
Couldn't believe my fortune
at last I had found you
There's a different feeling
between us now
and you seem a little lost
and forlorn
There is a hint of heartache
and sadness around you
Breaking up is one thing
I won't allow
We just cannot let it
slip through our
fingers now

Slow Emotion

I'd swallow everything
Hook, line and sinker
You thought an opening
like yours
with overwhelming force
would open doors
I've been around too long
to burn my fingers
You're coming on so strong
You see
It cuts no ice with me
But we've got time working for us
I am a taurus
I may rise to the bait
if you're ready to wait

Slow emotion
It takes me a while
I'll
catch up with you
If you wait a little longer
Slow emotion
I'm taking my time
I'm
slow at the start
But the feeling's growing stronger
You started talking
and you made the first move
I was stunned
completely overrun
Don't jump the gun

You moved in with a will
No hesitaion
All eyes and dressed to kill
Your prey
would not have much to say
You'd have your way
Off to a flying start
the ball was rolling
You thought you had my heart
and yes
You managed to impress
You said: We're birds of a feather
I said: This is no race
So let me set the pace

Just Like That

The hours pass so slowly
now that he's gone
one day is like another
bet they move on
Somehow I have returned
to the land of the living
but badly burned
I never had the chance of
keeping him here
The song of sirens
was to strong in his ear
And when tomorrow calls
Who would pace like a prisoner
within four walls

Just like that
He slipped into my life
As smug as a cat
He was handsome and smart
Walked away with my heart
Just like that
He took a temporary home in my flat
Telling innocent lies
Throwing dust in my eyes
But I led him on
In a way I was the one to deceive
Always accepting the fact he would leave
Just like that
As though he'd only
stopped a while for a chat
But my secrets he learned
Leaving no stone unturned

And when the day is new
the sun in the sky
Who needs the confrontation
saying good-bye
Who needs that kind of strain
When you're born with an instinct
to shun such pain

Falling

I try to steel myself
against the past
I thought I'd smile and say
it could never last
but in the end
I turn out open-hearted
with you again
cause - I can't pretend

The water seems so wide
when the bridge is burned
but stories have no end
til the last page's turned
I find some things
stay the same
our mind were never
really parted, just far apart

You see, every time
you look at me
I am falling
and everything's beyond recall
when I'm falling
The rain can never
choke the flame
though it's falling
I can't - get out of the fire
That's why my heart's
been calling me a liar
And I'm falling
Every time you go away
I feel like falling
falling

You know I've always
been just a call away
but I guess we both
invited pride to stay
The way we were
is not the way we are
But look at me, and then
tell me what you see
you'll find some things
never change
our minds were never
really parted, just far apart

Have Mercy

There's a wave of quiet anger
In the streets tonight
And a sense of loss and sorrow
mixed with helpless fright
As a newborn hope was rising
it was cruelly swept away
And the gloom of twilight
overtook the light of day

Have Mercy
Mercy on everyone

There's a flood of mourning faces
In the streets tonight
A procession in the honour
of a fearless fight
How can anyone believe
that there's a place for decent men
If the world is meant to suffer
time and time again

Have Mercy
This is a trying time
And the bell that used to chime
Hushed to silence
by the violence
Have mercy
Mercy on everyone
Now that the misdeed is done
After this vicious blow
Which is the way to go
Mercy

There's a feeling of belonging
In the streets tonight
Those who were against him
have all vanished out of sight
They'll remember how he used to
tear their poor defence apart
With the quiet wisdom
of the language of the heart

There's a sence of deprivation
In the streets tonight
For the candle burned out
just as we could glimpse a light
How we hungered for a vision
and he gave us all a dream
and a time of pride and passion
we cannot redeem

Live On The Love

All is quiet
All is calm at last
The children sleeping
This was always
our cherished moment
being on our own
But now it's a time to fear
Am I losing you
I don't know

Live on the love
you abuse me when you
deceive me
Live on the love
that you bruise
each time you leave me
Somebody out there
has your heart now
I don't know why
Everybody knows that I
Live on the love
That you'll use
When you come back again
Live on the love
I am losing
Though I need you
I just don't know what to do

Every car I hear
Each flickering light
Upon my window
If it's you
Should I run to
greet you
Or pretend to sleep
I don't know what
you want
Once I thought I did
Now I don't

In The Middle Of Nowhere

I wonder will it be too late
or can I catch up with you again
you are one step ahead
From time to time
I feel your hands reaching out
and the touch makes me warm

I know your ship's come in
but for me
it's either sink or swim
so I'll just hold my breath

But in the middle of nowhere
Love grows
Writing every little word
in calligraphy
and from nowhere
Love shows
tries to make me understand
If I cross
that borderline tonight
There's no limit
to what's wrong or right
and I'll meet you there
in no man's land

My path is narrow in the dark
In the morning light
I find myself
at the cross roads again
Another day, I'm out of time
out of place
holding on to a dream

You're dying to be free
but I'm only trying to be me
Sometimes I lose my way

Another You, Another Me

Love at first sight
Shadow in the wake of night
Taking shape and body
in the morning light
We were sure
This could never have
happened before
Once and no more

We had no choice
Following an ancient voice
Souls and bodies keen
to know a thousand joys
And we learned
making up for the nights
we had yearned
We made plans
We made a vow
All so far
from what is now
Stangers somehow

Another you
Another me
It was the dawn
of the first day
and life
had only just begun
Another you
Another me
The past had
nothing more to say
We had our moment
in the sun
And I can't see
No I can't tell you
how it came to be
Another you
Another me

Never before
like on that deserted shore
had I felt the urge
to know and to explore
And it's strange
When you asked
Do you think this will change
I said: No
this is the way
This is how
our love will stay
Just like today



G E M I N I S M (1987)

T.L.C.

Hey, I'm sorry 'bout last night
I was wrong to start a fight
Now I feel so bad
I know you're mad
But, please love, hold me tight
'cause I need you

Tender loving care
is the only
Remedy when you're down
And you're lonely
T.L.C.
Won't you give it to me
Tender loving care
and you know it
That's what I want
I beg you to show it
T.L.C.
Won't you give it to me

I know I'm a fool
And I talk too loud
I drink and I smoke
Till I'm in a cloud
But I don't pretend
When I say I'm your friend
You're quiet and stern
As you potter about
Determined and grim
Like you're moving out
Don't leave me this way
Oh, how I want you to stay
'cause I need you

Tender loving care...

I know I'm no good
And I let you down
Every time I behave
Like a godamn clown
I know it's a shame
And I'm solely to blame
Your face is so pale
And your eyes resigned
I'm forever the fool
And forever blind
But I promise I'll change
Oh baby, don't look so strange
'cause I need you

Tender loving care...

Only you have seen my tears
You're the one who knows my fears
Please forgive me now
Remember how
I've loved you all these years
And I still do

Tender loving care...

Beat The Heat

My feet can feel the pavement
Turn to a hot-plate
The city streets
Are nearly melting away
This is July
Sirocco winds are coming down
From the sky
The dogs are panting
Like they're finding it hard
To stay alive
I know that you're gonna be
My remedy

Hiding from the glowing sky
I know baby you and I can
Beat the heat
We're fighting it with fire
Only love can see through
Every little kiss from you can
Beat the heat
I'm burning with desire
Don't take your love away
Finally we've found a way to
Beat the heat
You can do it
Come on, come on, come on
Beat the heat

I watch the people
as they're drawing their blinds
They try to hide away
Can't take any more
This is July
Some get together cooling down
In the shade
And noone hardly ever moves
At this time of the day
I know that you're gonna be
My remedy

Hiding from the glowing sky...

Mio My Mio

Flying through the garden
Garden of the roses
And the silver poplars
I can see a bird

It is the bird of sorrow
I hear the bird of sorrow

Singing of the long lost
Land of faraway
And my heart is trembling
Then I hear my father say

Mio my Mio

High above the garden
Garden of the roses
I can see a big bird
Making for the sky

It is the bird of sorrow
Singing about tomorrow

I must leave the garden
I must go away
And my heart is trembling
Then I hear my father say

Mio my Mio

Ghost Town

As I was driving home
One night in late December
The snow began to fall
I lived a nightmare that
I always will remember
The darkest of them all
The snow was coming down in droves
And the frost
Was sticking to my windscreen
And I was lost
Then, before me
When the storm at last subsided
I saw an awesome sight

Ghost town
Deadly white
Frozen in the silence
Of the winter night
Ghost town
Heaven knows
What becomes of people
When the wild wind blows

I stopped the car and took
A frantic look around me
That's when the engine died
That sinking feeling of
Despair will always hound me
No matter how I tried
The wretched motor still
Refused to ignite
A sence of menace loomed
In the pale moonlight
And I've never felt
So helpless and so lonely
I never knew such fright

Ghost town
Deadly white
Frozen in the silence
Of the winter night
Ghost town
Nothing there
Empty windows staring
At you everywhere

Ghost town
Dead and cold
Burial ground of secrets
And of tales untold
Ghost town
Heaven knows
What becomes of people
When the wild wind blows

A door crashed open
Spilling light and raucous laughter
Into the moonlit street
And in the beam of light
A shadow seconds after
The sound of shuffling feet
The shape was slowly
Coming closer, it seemed
Mysteriously familiar
And how I screamed
When the moonlight briefly
Fell upon its features
I stared at my own face

Ghost town
Haunted place
With eternal winter
Locked in cold embrace
Ghost town
Heaven knows
What becomes of people
When the wild wind blows

Ghost town
Nothing there
Empty windows staring
At you everywhere
Ghost town
Deadly white
Frozen in the silence
Of the winter night
Ghost town
Burial ground of secrets
And of tales untold
What becomes of people
When the wild wind blows

I Am The Universe

She treats herself to
A measure of delusion
She sees no harm in
A foolish dream

The world awash with
Disaster and confusion
Should she adjust to
The going scheme

She's got the gall
To carry no weight at all
She moves with ease
And instinctive grace

When she's alone
She's never quite on her own
She say to me
I am free

I am the moon
I am the earth
I am the sun
I am the universe
With every shining
Star in heaven
I'm at one
I am the universe

I drag my feet through
Her life with endless pity
You'll drive yourself
Till your brain explodes

She's got the guts
To disregard ifs and buts
She seems to
Tread on enchanted ground

She's like a stream
A river of light she seems
She says to me
I am free

I am the moon...

Sniffin' Out The Snakes

What you see ain't what you get
Looks could be deceiving
Delusive love is where it's at, love
Every time you're leaving me
Don't give me your white lies
I'm not one of those guys

I have a way of sniffin' out the snakes, baby
I don't believe in any fairytales
Experience of sniffin' out the snakes, baby
My intuition never fails
You think you fooled me, fooled me
But you made mistakes
Playin' all the games I knew
I can't make it up with you
No can do

You just wait, I'll pick my time
I'm not yours for keepin'
I know you have a busy line
When you sau you're sleepin', girl
You must pay for your fun
You're shot with your own gun

I have a way of sniffin' out the snakes, baby...

You can't go on or turn back
And you can't cover your tracks

I have a way of sniffin' out the snakes, baby
I don't believe in any fairytales
Experience of sniffin' out the snakes, baby
My intuition never fails
You think you fooled me, fooled me
But you made mistakes, baby
Hold on to your heart just in case it breaks, baby
I have a way of sniffin' out the snakes, baby
No second thoughts 'bout doing what it takes, baby
You think you fooled me but you made mistakes, baby

I'm A Bitch When I See Red

Well, I've washed your laundry
And I've ironed your shirts
Putting up with being
Only the wife
While you did your thing
And never let me live my life
I've listened to your problems
And I've waited up
With your dinner getting cold
'cause I was stupid enough
To think together
We'd grow old

And now you've found
Another woman
And she's better than me
In oh so many ways
I was your mother, your friend
And all I'm getting is
A slap in the face

So you find her more exciting
Well, I think you've lost your head
And I plan to keep on fighting
I'm a bitch when I see red

She's got style, you say
And she's never ever
Boring or plain
And compared to me
She's all caviar and champagne
And she's always willing
To fulfill your needs
With an urge that never fails
She's never got a headache
And she's never got broken nails

So you find her more exciting
Well, I think you've lost your head
And I plan to keep on fighting
I'm a bitch when I see red
So with her at last you're living
And with me it's dull and dead
Well, I won't be all forgiving
I'm a bitch when I see red

When the novelty's
Wearing off
Where d'you think
You're gonna be
When you find she wants
A home and kids
Just like me
When she finds
You're not the man
She thought you were
But a liar and a cheat
I can hardly wait
My revenge will be so sweet

So you find her more exciting...

So you say your love has faded
And you're taking that woman instead
I'm insulted and degraded
And I tell you, I see red

There's No Way To Fool A Heart

And you'll never find a way to fool a heart
Baby, never find a way to rule a heart
If you want my love just say it
I think it's time to lay it on the line
Tell me, do you want to play this guessing game
Baby, every time the answer's still the same
And our hearts already know it
They found a way to show it one more time

Why are we trying
There's no denying love
Who are we fooling
We knew it from the start
That - there's no way to fool a heart

Blinded, or just afraid to see
But take a look at you and me
We fight the night but after all
What our eyes can't see
Our senses will feel
Oh, don't you know that love is like a windfall

And you'll never find a way to fool a heart
Baby, don't you know a heart is much too smart
Do we need an instant replay
To find that words that we say speak of love
Anticipating
What are we waiting for
Why are we playing
We'll never stay apart
'cause there's no way to fool a heart

Blinded, or just afraid to see
But take a look at you and me

And you'll never find a way to fool a heart
Baby, never find a way to rule a heart...

Wild About That Girl

Turbo lightning
Striking me
And I'm falling
Like a tree
Cool and calm
And collected
Prouder than a queen
Standing at the bar
Beside me
Girl, where have
You been
Legs that never stop
And streaming hair
I've been searching
Everywhere

I'm wild about that girl
I'm wild about that woman
Look at the way she's
Holding her head
Sexy enough to
Wake the dead
I'm wild about that girl
I'm wild about that woman
She is a goddess
She is divine
And I intend to
Make her mine

I can't let her
Walk away
But I don't know
What to say
She's a regular stunner
Time is rushing by
Gotta make a move
And quickly
But my mouth is dry
Just as I'm about
To take my chance
She says: Would you like to dance

I'm wild about that girl...

Nearly There

A faint attraction
A flicker of desire
But not substantial
Enough to light a fire
That's all it was
All it had a chance to be
That's what I thought
But it came out differently
And now I feel something grow
I feel strange
I don't know where I'm going
And it's you

You're such a revelation
You could really make me care
Keep on baby 'cause you're
Nearly there
I can feel no hesitation
Don't stop baby, don't you dare
Keep on going 'cause you're
Nearly there

You meet a stranger
It happens all the time
A certain interest
You get along just fine
When least expected
There's something going on
A funny feeling
Indifference all but gone
I was a true nonbeliever
Now I feel the symptoms of fever
Must be you

You're such a revelation...


Kall som is (Anders Glenmark/Ingela Forsman, 1984)

Var har du dina tankar
du har varit svår att nå
Säg är det någon annan
som du tänker på
Jag har känt att nå't har hänt dej
och du kan inte dölja det för mej

Kall som is
Din blick är kall som is
och jag kan inte värma dej
Kall som is
Din blick är kall som is
och jag kan inte närma mej
Jag har märkt att det har skett nå'n slags förvandling
det märks i varje ord och handling
Du är på väg från mej - på väg från mej
Kall som is
din blick är kall som is
och jag kan inte smälta den

I natten finns det frågor
när jag ligger bredvid dej
Du famlar efter någon
men det är inte mej
Och jag har försökt att nå dej
men jag känner när du ser på mej

Kall som is...


Copy Love (1985)

Please take one look at me
Tell me who do you see
Just someone from the past
Memories are fading fast
I'm still around
And I just can't tell what I feel
Don't turn me down
I am flesh and blood, I am real

Secretive millionaires
Unlikely love affairs
Strangers that come along
Handsome and dark and strong
Doctors in white
Aren't they all too few around here
When will your knight
In his shining armour appear

Merchants of dreams
Have arrived and they're
Here to sell
It's just Copy Love
Copy Love, who needs that
Where there's a market
There's always a tale to tell
It's just Copy Love
Copy Love, who needs that
Who needs that
Glitter and gold
That's not you and me
And you'd be a fool to fall
It's just Copy Love, that's all

Orphan inheriting
Fortune and wedding ring
Servants and grand estate
All on a silver plate
Don't let your brain
Fall asleep on fairyland dreams
Castles in Spain
They're just false and
Ludicrous schemes

Mio min Mio (Swedish version)

Genom rosengården
med silverpopplar
går jag med min fader
Håller hårt hans hand
Och från det högsta trädet
hör jag en ensam fågel
sjunga om det grymma
Landet Utanför
Och mitt hjärta darrar
när min faders röst jag hör

Mio min Mio

Över rosengården
börjar det att skymma
Och jag ser min fågel
svinga sig mot skyn
På sina breda vingar
flyger den rakt mot himlen
Flyger mot det svarta
Landet Utanför
Och mitt hjärta darrar
när min faders röst jag hör

Mio min Mio

Mio min Mio

Äntligen (1992)

Jag borde åkt för längesen
Men har inte vågat förrän nu
Och det är först nu
Allt känns som det ska
När jag säger

Äntligen
Skönt att komma hem igen
Jag är säker
Äntligen

Om tiden nu ska ha sin gång
Och ödet ta mig dit det vill
Så tror jag ändå på
Att jag har rest klart
Så jag säger

Äntligen
Skönt att komma hem igen
Jag är säker
Äntligen

Jag vet att du också vet
Det är ingen hemlighet
Att kärlek tar tid ibland
Det är inte mer än rätt
Det ska inte vara för lätt
Du vet vad jag menar
Och jag menar varje

Äntligen
Jag tänker stanna
Äntligen
Skönt att komma hem igen
Jag säger till mig själv
Välkommen äntligen
