Som i en dröm

Per Gessle – Tits & Ass Demo, January 1986 5:07

Det var vinter vid min bädd
mörkret vilade runt mitt hus
jag var ensam men beredd
på att gå mot en stjärnas ljus
natten verkade ren och klar
vindar knackade och försvann
och jag kände samma sak
som den första gång vi såg varann

Och som i en dröm
som i en dröm
en ängel
passerade genom mitt rum
så nära så sann som nu
och jag önskade det var du
jag önskade det var du
men det var inte du

i en skog med bara träd
fyre vindar slet itu
jag var vilsen men beredd
på att gå samma stig som du

Jag sov i kärlekens salong
jag sov med längtan i min hand
och jag hörde samma sång
som den första gång vi såg varann

Och som i en dröm
som i en dröm
en ängel
passerade genom mitt rum
så nära så sann som nu
och jag önskade det var du
jag önskade det var du
åh kom intill mej nu

Per: Yea, this is the original demo to “So Far Away” from Pearls of Passion. I did another one (acoustic) not that long ago which I might use in the future. I like this track a lot. Especially in Swedish.

Roxette – So Far Away [Original Version] 5:13

In the coldest time of year
Darkness all around my heart
I was alone but didn’t fear to wander
In the light of the stars
In the bright and silent night
Winds would knock and disappear
Still I felt the feeling near
Like the first time you were ever here

You’re so far away
So far away
You left me
You told me you would stay
You never said goodbye and
I’ll keep asking how
Oh come unto me now

I have breathed the morning air
I have heard the four winds blow
I was weary but prepared to follow
Down this lonely road
In the room where lovers sleep
Winds would knock and disappear.
Still I felt the music near
Like the first time we were ever here

You’re so far away
So far away
You left me
You told me you would stay
You never said goodbye and
I keep wondering why
I keep on wondering how
Oh come unto me now

You’re so far away
So far away
You left me
You told me you would stay
You never said goodbye and
I keep wondering why
I keep on wondering how
Oh come inside me now
