Songs

En känsla av en kvinna

Notes

Per: This was written for my third Swedish solo album back in 1985-86. Original title: “En känsla av en kvinna” (A Sense of a Woman). Wound up on the first Rox album instead. Life is strange sometimes.

Roxette – Call of the Wild [Original Version] 4:30

I know her and every notion I get from her I wear inside me
I know her all of the broken leaves of love she leaves behind
Oh – don’t you hide away from the rain
Oh – can you tell me the name of this game?
I got to get thru to you

Behind the door
Another wall
A lonely cry
A call of the wild

A dancing daze
An empty face
A crystal high
A call of the wild

And there is something that sweeps the dark
A lover’s dart
The call of a broken heart

Wrapped in the night
Behind these eyes
Oh hear the cry
The call of the wild

I know her and in my mind I dream of her
How she aches without me
I know her and every heart is a lonely number when she walks by
Oh – can you read the hurt in my eyes?
Oh – don’t you leave without saying goodbye
I got to get thru to you

Behind the door
Another wall
A lonely cry
A call of the wild

A dancing daze
An empty face
A crystal high
A call of the wild

And there is something that sweeps the dark
A lover’s dart
The call of a broken heart

Wrapped in the night
Behind these eyes
Oh hear the cry
The call of the wild
