Roxette – Go to Sleep [Original Version] 3:58

There’s a shadow on the terrace
A snow dance for the living
There’s heavy weather on the way
I heard it on the news

And life’s a tough principal who won’t reward the losers
Your name is on the tea-cup
There’s nothing I can do

But to wish you’d think about me
Before you go to sleep
And I wish you the best there is
Before you go to sleep

There are tears without the colour
A million seas with water
An ocean full of people where shattered hearts can go

And love’s a golden ripple where answers are so simple
But the explanations are very hard to do

And I wish you’d think about me
Before you go to sleep
And I wish you the best there is
Before you go to sleep
Go to sleep
