Happy on the Outside

Per Gessle – Tits & Ass Demo, 17 August 2005 2:27

Per: This is a pretty old demo made by me at the Tits & Ass Studio in August 2005. It was lying around for many years until it found its way to the Charm School-album. A nice vibe, don’t you think?

Roxette – Original Version 3:37

You can watch her doin’ the rounds
She’s there for everyone
Throwin’ kisses, makin’ plans
For midnight men, mornin’ sons

Well, did the wine make her dance?
No, she’s always been the star
She’s got that riddle in her smile
But a burden in her heart

She’s so happy on the outside
But she’s cryin’ on the inside
And there’s nothin’ I can do
To make her glad

So happy on the outside
Hurtin’ on the inside
And it’s sad so sad
Baby, it’s so sad

Hey, did the wine make her dance?
No, she’s always been a star
So be prepared to fall in love
Though her heart hides the scars

She’s so happy on the outside
Hurtin’ on the inside
It’s such a sad sad sight
Such a sad sad sight

She’s so happy on the outside
But she’s cryin’ on the inside
And there’s nothin’ I can do
To make it right

She’s so happy on the outside
Oooh, hurtin’ on the inside
It’s such a sad sad sight
Such a sad sad sight
