Happy Together

Notes

Per: Yea! Always loved this! This is the T&A demo I had lying around. Listen that drumloop going round and round and round and round forever and ever… how artistic! I liked the vibe of it all so we just added Marie’s vocals to the demo. I think we recorded her vox at ABBA-Benny’s studio in Stockholm. She did a great job. The coda is brilliant. Have to use that again one day…

Roxette – Original Version 3:55

When she walked up, he walked down
Just like the seasons went round and round
She was in love, he wasn’t sure
She wrote some letters he tried to ignore

They could have been so happy together
They could have been so lucky in love
Sing la di da
So happy together
They could have run the earth, the sky, the sun

She carried his ring since she left school
He knew she was precious, the prettiest jewel
She wanted a baby, but he wasn’t sure
He couldn’t make up his mind anymore

They could have been so happy together
They could have been so lucky in love
Sing la di da
So happy together
They could have run the earth, the stars, the sun

I couldn’t ever hurt no one
If you feel shattered I’m sorry for what I’ve done
We could have been so happy together
We could have been so lucky in love
Sing la di da
So happy together
We could have run the earth, the sky, the sun
Yea, we could have been so happy together
We could have been so lucky in love
Sing la di da
So happy together

We could have run the universe
Could have run the universe
Could have run the universe for fun
So happy together
So happy together
So happy together
