Perfect Excuse

Per Gessle – Original Version

I wouldn’t come alone
I took my memories along
If there’s something that I’ve learned
You can’t deny the way
The past dictates each dawn

It’s not that I’m afraid
God knows I’ve made my set of rounds
It’s just the way you look tonight
That makes me lose the plot
What’s really goin’ down

Too hot to handle
Too hard to lose
Fallin’ in love with you
Is the perfect excuse

You make me feel at ease
But I know the final show
If there’s something that I’ve learned
It’s better to have left
Before you have to go

It’s not that I’m afraid
God knows I’ve made my set of rounds
You got that twinkle in your eye
That makes me lose my grip
What’s really goin’ down

Too hot to handle
Too hard to lose
Fallin’ in love with you
Is the perfect excuse

Too many heartbeats
Hidin’ the truth
Fallin’ in love with you
Is the perfect excuse
