You Can’t Put Your Arms Around What’s Already Gone

Anteckningar

Per: Christoffer Lundqvist brought his mini-moog to the studio. As you can hear on this track. There’s a lot of old synths buzzing around on the album. Marie: Christoffer has been an extraordinary resource on this album – both as musician, inspirer and vocal arranger. A really fun guy to work with. Per: Took the tram around the bay… Marie: …everybody tells you to have a nice day! Per: Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba.

– Have A Nice Day track by track, 1999

Per: Yep, always liked You can’t… Michael Ilbert did a great sound on this one! Recorded in Marbella, Spain.

Roxette – Ursprungliga Versionen 3:30

I saw red stayed at home
Placed a big pillow over the phone
In this town where I’m from
I’ve learned two is so much better than one

But you left me alone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Well you hurt to the core
You used to kiss like no one had done before
And your taste turned me on
Now you drive me real crazy just by being born

’Cos you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
And you can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Baba b-baba b-baba ba
Baba b-baba b-baba ba

Took the tram ’round the bay
Where everyone tells you to have a nice day
And my pride almost broke
When the tears don’t fit you
You look like a joke

And you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Crying eyes getting worn
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Hey you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Baba b-baba b-baba ba
