ABOVE AND BEYOND - MTV UNPLUGGED

LONG BEFORE ROCK´N´ROLL

Dixgård/Norén © 2006 EMI Music

She said I like just lying on the bed
Beneath the ceiling with her head upon my pillow
Theres's nothing else I'd rather do
And I said I'd rather do it on the couch
Or in the kitchen where about
You seem so down child
Like nothing could destroy your world

But I never ever wanted to
You never ever let me to
I would but you must wait 'til it gets dark
So what is it that you want me to
I can't make it even good for you
So play me some from 1954
Before rock 'n' roll
Yeah, before rock 'n' roll
Before rock 'n' roll

Well later she came with flowers in her arms
And we can do it in the car my brother owns it
The driversseat is made for us
And I said I'd rather grab a bite to eat
There is a diner down the street
Let's take it easy
And join this lovely harmony

But I never ever wanted to
You never ever let me to
I would but you must wait 'til it gets dark
So what is it that you want me to
I can't make it into good for you
So play me some from 1954
Before rock 'n' roll
Yeah, before rock 'n' roll
Before rock 'n' roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
before rock 'n' roll (6x)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Before rock 'n' roll
Long before rock 'n' roll

Before rock 'n' roll (3x)

SHEEPDOG

Dixgård/Norén © 2002 EMI Music

I aim at the first one who´ll dare to stand still

Oh Lord, your tension is making me ill

You´ve got no friends in your home, you´ve got no family stone

You can´t go: yeah yeah yeah

Everyone, in every town, on every boat, on every trip, the multi-talented strip

Will gather ´round you with coke and pain

The trees, ain´t no doubt about, the seeds, I had no thought about

No, yeah yeah yeah

 

Don´t know why I can´t locate this feeling, that I would rather be with you

It makes no sense, you´re crying out loud, that I may love you

This stress is wasting my emotions that I would rather be with you

Don´t let them closer to this secret...

That I may love you

 

Take ´em outa west, take `em outa height, take ´em on a sweet ride

Those little angels are numbered nine

The colored TV once shined on desolation one five

They´ve got it!!Yeah, yeah yeah!

Bust ´em in the light, bust ´em in the light, BUST `EM IN THE DAYLIGHT

They ain´t worthy being named as thieves

One of the shorties said hi up to the abbot who died

The rebound: yeah yeah yeah

 

Now hear the bluebird whistle hymns like "I would rather heal your wounds"

Now hear the dark gun punching out that I may love you

         

LOSING MY MIND

 Dixgård/Norén © 2010 Universal

Maybe back in June you find
All you ever want
That’s what people say to me
On my crying days
Step into my dreaming space
Hide behind the door
Demons stole my pride when they got bored

Try to get away for good
Leaving on a train
Find that all that matters to me
Blew away with the wind
Hope I find a shady yard
Where I can stay and find my way
Sing a song in minor breaks the day

I’ve been losing my mind for so long
I’ve been losing my mind for so long
I’ve been losing my mind for so long
Maybe that’s all I’m ever gonna do

The roads you’re on seems far away
I tried to drew a map
Holding on to memories
Of the paradise
I will search for harmony
Get a glimpse of glory days
Sing a song in minor get away

I’ve been losing my mind for so long
I’ve been losing my mind for so long
I’ve been losing my mind for so long
Maybe that’s all I’m ever gonna do

 

 

CHET BAKER

Dixgård/Norén © 2009 EMI Music

Stop your crying oh little boy
'cause I know a place that you will enjoy
It's a place that's full of diamonds and toys
And Chet Baker's playin' trumpet there

So go there now, with joy
Go there Don't feel low
'cause Chet Baker's playin' trumpet alone
For you

Don't you worry that girl is gone
Don't you worry for the things that she's done
Just relax, you still got time to go on
'cause this place is openminded to you

So go there now, with joy
So Go there Don't feel low
'cause Chet Baker's playin' trumpet For you

 

NO MORE TEARS

 Dixgård/Norén © 2010 Universal

Paint the picture with my final sunrise 
Paint the ocean with the tracks of my tears 
I wanna be the only one 
The only one who knew you when I’m gone 
And flown away

When you’re near me I feel so secure and 
When you feared me I felt, I felt even more 
I wanna be the only one 
The only one who knew you when I’m gone 
And flown away 
I’ve flown away 
I’ve flown away

Because I got no more tears to give you after this 
I’m gonna lock my heart and throw away the keys 
I hope my love will carry on 
My lord I won’t forget you when I am gone

Didn’t know that I could walk through fire 
Didn’t know that death was my desire 
I wanted to be whole again 
But you were never there to take my hand 
I’ve flown away 
I’ve flown away 
I’ve flown away

Because I got no more tears to give you after this 
I’m gonna lock my heart and throw away the keys 
I hope my love will carry on 
My lord I won’t forget you when I am gone

Because I got no more tears to give you after this 
I’m gonna lock my heart and throw away the keys 
I've said it all, I gave you all, you let me standing in the rain 
You broke my pride baby you suffer any pain 
I hope my love will carry on 
My love I won’t forget you when I am gone

GLORIA

Dixgård/Norén © 2010 Universal

Well now, she don't need to see the sun ahead
Don't need that help from god above
If you're losing her don't be sad
Cause she will offer you heart attacks

She's tired of problems that you caused her mind
Tired of all those lies in your freak show
Tired of being alone at night
Being the lowest cat on earth

So Gloria steps out from the prison
Gloria's no longer the wasted disco girl
You've been dreaming about
Gloria alone now forever Gloria away in the air now
Gloria she's no longer your slave

It's time for you to see yourself
All the misery you brought up
Gloria's one day ahead
Watching you from the heaven's gate

She's tired of problems that you caused her mind
Tired of all those lies in your freak show
Tired of being alone at night
Being the lowest cat on earth

So Gloria steps out of the prison
Gloria's no longer the wasted disco girl
You've been dreaming about
Gloria alone now forever Gloria away in the air now
Gloria she's no longer your slave

Gloria alone now forever Gloria away in the air now
Gloria she´s no longer your slave

No, not anymore

Gloria steps out of the prison
Gloria's no longer the wasted disco girl
You've been dreaming about
Gloria alone now forever Gloria away in the air now
Gloria she´s no longer your slave

SONG FOR ABERDEEN

Dixgård/Norén © 2006 EMI Music Publishing

(Well I know it must be hard to 
Fall in love with a guy like me
I don’t blame you for the choice you make 
I just want you to be free 
But the pain is never easy 
And I know it’s not your fault 
But of all the stones that hit me 
This one knocked me to the floor) 

She was an alcoholic artist 
With too much make-up ‘round her eyes 
And I never knew her real name she was a sunbeam wrapped in lies 
But I love her and I’m sorry 
And that’s all there is to say it’s like a fairy from the ancient time 
And I hope it hope it stays that way 

And when I woke up on your kitchen floor 
With a headache made in hell 
And the flowers that I gave you 
Smiled at me from the window pane 
Then I thought I must be crazy cause I’m feeling kinda good
And then when Satan helped me up again
It was then I it was then I understood 

Well I was never meant to be the good boy 
I was never meant to go to school 
Well it´s guys like me who get somewhere 
Cause everybody’ll pity a fool 
Now it’s payback for the rainy days 
Now it’s no more me and you 
Well I got mine you got yours babe
Now it’s payback 
Now it’s me against the world 

It was the last time I forgave you ( 8x)

ALL MY SENSES

Dixgård/Norén © 2004 EMI Music Publishing

Pull the trigger, break down in a love affair
When I said I didn’t care, you started searching for tomorrow
Pull the trigger, my girl you’re running all alone
I said I was back home, but I’m far away

And there ain’t no point in the words I write
There ain’t no way to know me
But it sure felt right when I saw your eyes
But now they feel like, oh yeah they feel like Mondays

And all my senses seem to shine through the day
Seem to shine through the day, honey that’s okay
Yes all my senses seem to shine in the night
Seem to shine in the night, honey that’s alright

In your heart girl I see a jealous butterfly
You wanted me high, love, but I’m sober still
In your heart girl, there’s nothing left but misery
Come dance while I’m getting free, I’m gonna lie again

Cause there ain’t no point in the words I write
There ain’t no way to get me
But I sure was high when I saw your smile
But now you´re always, oh yes you’re always gone girl 

And all my senses seem to shine through the day… 

And all my senses seem to be in this song
Thinking all day long, honey what went wrong
Tell me what went wrong 
Tell me what went wrong

DANCE WITH SOMEBODY

Dixgård/Norén © 2010 Universal

Break your happy home
Learn to sing along
To the music, to the music
Clap your hands and shake
On a summer's day
To the music, to the music

I'm falling in love with your favourite song
I'm gonna sing it all night long
I'm gonna dance with somebody
Dance with somebody 
Dance, dance, dance [Chorus 2x]

I'm gonna dance with somebody

When you're all alone
We become your home
We're the music, we're the music
When your love's away
And you feel betrayed
We're the music, sweet music

I'm falling in love with your favourite song
I'm gonna sing it all night long
I'm gonna dance with somebody
Dance with somebody
Dance, dance, dance [Chorus 2x]

Dance...

I'm falling in love with your favourite song
I'm gonna sing it all night long
I'm gonna dance with somebody
Dance with somebody
Dance, dance, dance [Chorus 4x]

 

HIGH HEELS

Dixgård/Norén © 2010 Universal

Ohh you got me shaking to that moan you made last night
Ohh my body's aching from that naked summer light
Ohh my mind's setting you on
It's just a game we play

High heels have got me falling down on my knees
High heels have got me falling down on my knees
High heels have got me falling down on my knees

Ohh the button's pushed and I am ready for the purple fall
Ohh I’m all addicted to the sound of a certain call
Ohh my mind's melting you
Ohh I'm coming all the way

High heels have got me falling down on my knees
High heels have got me falling down on my knees
High heels have got me falling down on my knees

So, so long ago since felt shivers down my spine
You, I need your sweat as much as you need mine
Ohh my mind's melting you
Ohh I'm coming all the way

High heels have got me falling down on my knees
High heels have got me falling down on my knees
High heels have got me falling down on my knees

DOWN IN THE PAST

Dixgård/Norén © 2004 EMI Music Publishing

Well I don’t wanna hang around with you
I’ve got my motor baby and I’m gonna see you through
You think I wanna be alone with you
It doesn’t matter baby cause you’re overreacted too

But since you’re down there
Where will I just be 
I’m getting fine girl, dressing up for stormy weather

So touch me down in the past where my mother will last
And it’s true that I’m in for a punch and a blast
Yeah down in the past where my mother will last
And she will make sure that you remember

Well I don’t wanna slide away with you
I’ve got ten little soldiers pointing at you
Honey you just left me for a new one
It doesn’t matter baby cause your hair is ugly too
 

But since you’re down there, where will I just be
I’m getting fine girl, dressing up for stormy weather
 

So touch me downin the past…


Well I don’t wanna hang around with you
I’ve got my motor baby and I’m gonna see you through
You think I wanna be alone with you
It doesn’t matter baby cause you’re overreacted too

So touch me down in the past…

That you remember… Come on…

HOW WE WALK

Dixgård/Norén © 2009 EMI Music

How would you react, in a situation like mine 
When all birds they ain't singing 
I don't know how to say it 
But you can go know 
So please girl, go now 
You make me laugh you make me shiver 
Isn't that a fabulous thing 
Don't be here now don't be here anytime 
I'm much wiser now, that's how we walk

I saw you in a daydream 
Now I'm a jealous guy with aches babe 
I lied to mom about that 
You're dealing with a boygirl 
And I'm stepping forward in pain 
Come home now, freak me out

You make me laugh you make me shiver 
Isn't that a fabulous thing 
Don't be here now don't be here anytime 
I'm much wiser now, that's how we walk 
I'm much wiser now, that's how we walk

Wild Jim and his spoiled kid 
They were dancing with the good advice 
Nice to meet you girl! They screamed without confidence 
Bless the good 'ol boys and the dogs 
I replied I didn't waste a soul 
So please come on join my chorusline

You make me laugh you make me shiver 
Isn't that a fabulous thing 
Don't be here now don't be here anytime 
I'm much wiser now, that's how we walk 
I'm much wiser now, that's how we walk

OCHRASY

Dixgård/Norén © 2006 EMI Music

I feel dizzy all laid back and I’m too blind to see 
What’s going on outside my lonely window
I’m turning on the TV screen watch the news for a while 
Then I fall back to sleep again 

And I ‘m dreaming ‘bout times 
Times that are gone 
Times when I lived alone in my own land called Ochrasy
that place was everything to me 
The word, I made it up, you see 
Its all there in my fantasy 
And I believe it 

I’m waking up again and see that war on screen again 
And it makes me want to go and hide 
This world is full of misery the anger is too big to see 
That’s why I had to dream this dream 

I was dreaming ‘bout times 
Times that are gone 
Times when I lived alone in my own land called Ochrasy
That place was everything to me 
The word I made it up you see
It´s all there in my fantasy 
And I believe it 

Now they come again all these soldiers without shame
Dressed in black and equipped with fire 
They can stop our happy days 
And put us in the graves but never reach the Ochrasy 

I was dreaming ‘bout… 

I’m waking up again 
And see that war on screen again 
And it makes me want to go and hide 
This world is full of misery 
The anger is too big to see
That’s why I had to dream this dream

 

THE NEW BOY

Dixgård/Norén © 2006 EMI Music

She was only 21 but so much older than she’s now 
Now she passed the 24 I guess it’s time to say goodbye 
Here’s the new here’s the real 
Here’s the life you like to live 
Now here’s the new boy taking on the world tonight

When we met she smelled like honey when we kissed she tasted tears
Then for 14000 seconds we made love behind old fears 
Here’s the new here’s the real 
Here’s the life you wished you lived
Now here’s the new boy taking on the world tonight 

Take the words on your way 
I don’t waste the things I say 
When in doubt fuck the world 
Forget all the things you’ve heard 
Now here is the new boy taking on the world tonight

Why so sad? Don’t you like my way of life 
I don’t last forever neither do the things we love 
You are wise this is now 
This is all the things I want 
Everything around us is moving except time

She was only 24 but so much younger than the past 
We’ve laid all our troubles down and now it’s us against the rest 
Here’s the new 
here’s the real 
Here’s the life you wished you lived
Now here’s the new boy taking on the world tonight

 

YOU CAN´T STEAL MY LOVE

Dixgård/Norén © 2004 EMI Music Publishing

I was walking down the street 
With my chains tied up to my feet 
I leaned instead of jiggie with the sidewalk
Now this street tells the same old boring tale
That has failed in so many ways of life
To trust its stories you’ve got to be dull as them

And all the love I’ve got in here you’ve just killed
You peasants didn’t even care
The love I had in store you raped for more 
And all the dreams I had in here you’ve just stolen
You peasants didn’t even care 
But the dreams I had for her you cannot touch, my golden hand 
‘Cause it’s guarded by your promises

I met her in a crowded room
Where the bookshelves help you and knowledge takes your hand
I watched her beauty from an armchair
I said “Hey girl have you seen that film
With those kids in New York in the eighties - oh, you have
Well, can I watch it with you anyway”

And all the love I’ve got in here…

Congratulation Mr. Major 
You savior, betrayer, you stinking master of trusts
How does it feel to ride all those horses
You cannot touch our hearts when we’re in bloom
I assume that we’ll win over the heads again
We conceal none, you’ll feel none
That’s what I promise

And all the love we’ve got in store, you can’t kill
You peasants! We won it all
And the love I have for her you cannot touch, my golden hand
‘Cause it’s guarded by your filthy promises
And all the love I’ve got in here…

Honey I love you, like the summer falls and the winter crawls
You’re above and beyond me…

RINGING BELLS

Dixgård/Norén © 2004 EMI Music

Stick around your neck and see what it can bring
Lonely stands the butcher on the ground
Little angel fly, fly among the stars
Jupiter will comfort you with love

So who are you gonna follow 
Are you going out somewhere 
Can it be the new thing money enough 
Where’s that hat you loved once 
Let us spoil it for a day 
Bring ‘em in she said just for a day 
Just for a day

On the way to you between busy moon 
Crash beneath a window left in bloom 
The days are few my friend and winter comes again 
Clap, clap and the boy is to lose 

So who are you gonna follow…

Bring ‘em in she said I said
Just bring ‘em in she said

Ringing bells in Saxton and Oakland bringing you home…

MEAN STREET

Dixgård/Norén © 2010 Universal

Let me take you for a ride
Far away from the upper side
We're going down to the mean street

Johnny's got a brand new 38
He thinks it's gonna cure his hate
Ah it's all done in the mean street

It's the state of grace
And It's all done in the mean street

Take my hand and close your pretty eyes
Cus it's gonna hurt so much when summer hits New Nork sky
Oh no, it's all done in the mean street

God I love this stormy cloud
Where all nasty girls they like it loud
It's all good in the mean streets

Diane had her grand debut here
Michael couldn't even tell if it was pleasure or fear
It's all done in the mean street

And It's my little state of grace
It goes down in the mean street

Take my hand and close your pretty eyes
Cus it's gonna hurt so much when summer hits New York sky
Oh no, it's all done in the mean street

The heights, the sights, the green, the scarred
The easy way of doing everything hard, the fashion
Oh I hate that street with... passion

Take my hand and close your pretty eyes
Cus it's gonna hurt so much when summer hits New York sky
Oh no, it's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street

YOUR LOVER´S NERVE

Dixgård/Norén © 2009 EMI Music

Belgium or France maybe England
Reading your lips and they could be easily for me so fine and free
Well I went down here for your number but your colours were grey
I obeyed the fact that you were small, so silly small

But I'm easy for your lover's nerve
I'm easy and you might be hurt in a year or two weeks from now on
And when I think of it you lied you cut all my maybes twice
You might be far away

Tango and waltz in the evening
Chasing the fears and they could be finally for me hunt them to be free
Load my revolver discussed with the old man stinking of gin
We'll it could be clear as ice to see just like you and me my friend

'Cause I am easy for your lover's nerve...
I am easy for your lover's nerve...
You might be far away, but I just don't know...

MR MOON

Dixgård/Norén © 2002 EMI Music Publishing

Mr Moon, Mr Moon, maybe your time is coming

Mr Moon, Mr Moon, what’s happening in that room

Well search your heart, before you die before your time fades away

It was given as a promise to each and every man

 

I wanna love you but I’m growing old

Ten little soldiers screaming in my soul

Will she come over when it’s time to go

Come on and show me little drummerboy

Mr Moon, Mr Moon, Mr Moon

 

Sad but true, sad but true, you’re telling me what to do 

I’ve learned my lesson, that stupid question now it hurts my pride

And you’re a girl, a serious girl showing me the world

Oh my love, you’re so tired, but you must think quiet

 

I wanna love you ... (2x)

The day is using up its final breath

I’ve never been so sure I’ve never doubted you

Mr Moon

HAIL THE SUNNY DAYS

Dixgård/Norén © 2009 EMI Music

Share some thoughts for all the pretty people
Bless the gods and all the wealthy fellas
See how they run, see how they try
To give their best for all our beauty

They wear dignity like the falling angels
Proper shoes and the velvet trousers
We were tramps and whores who gathered around
Let's she'd a tear for those who's crying

And there ain't no shame
Everybody's waiting for a sunny day
Everybody gets their shot of being someone
So use your sunny day

We're the dirt in the fields you're running
We're the springtime's first carnation
And we are all alone and so we stand
Above you all, the matched creation

Let's all sing for our broken future
Let's sing for all the idiots
Who will not share their lands
Their lands of gold and big ideas
We ain't got nothing to live up to

And there ain't no shame
Everybody's waiting for a sunny day
Everybody gets their shots of being someone
So use your sunny day

And we share our pain
Everybody's waiting for a sunny day
Everybody gets their shot of being someone
So hail the sunny days

And there ain't no shame
Everybody's waiting for a sunny day
Everybody gets their shot of being someone
So hail your sunny day

And we share our pain
Everybody's waiting for a sunny day
Everybody gets their shot of being someone
So hail the sunny days

You gotta hail your sunny days
You gotta hail your sunny days

 

VICTORIA

 

Long ago life was clean
Sex was bad and obscene
And the rich were so mean
Stately homes for the Lords
Croquet lawns, village greens
Victoria was my queen

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria

I was born, lucky me
In a land that I love
And though I am poor, I am free
When I grow I shall fight
For this land I shall die
So let her sun never set

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, toria

Land of hope and gloria
Land of my Victoria
Land of hope and gloria
Land of my Victoria
Victoria, Victoria

Canada to India
Australia to Cornwall
Singapore to Hong Kong
From the West to the East
From the rich to the poor
Victoria loved them all

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria

 

BLEEKER STREET

 

 

Fog's rollin' in off the East River bank
Like a shroud it covers Bleeker Street
Fills the alleys where men sleep
Hides the shepherd from the sheep

Voices leaking from a sad cafe
Smiling faces try to understand
I saw a shadow touch a shadow's hand
On Bleeker Street

A poet reads his crooked rhyme
Holy, holy is his sacrament
Thirty dollars pays your rent
On Bleeker Street

I heard a church bell softly chime
In a melody sustaining
It's a long road to Caanan
On Bleeker Street
Bleeker Street

IF I DON'T LIVE TODAY, THEN I MIGHT BE HERE TOMORROW

Dixgård/Norén/Olsson © 2007 Sony/ATV Publishing

Take my hand of funeral flowers in white
Why did you hurt me so?
You said that you never stood out
So go kiss Ann on the cheek
She's never weak
She likes the way you betrayed me

But don't forget

If I don't live today, then I might be here tomorrow
If I don't live today, then I might be here tomorrow
Be here tomorrow

Watch me shine, as all the lights closes down
It's just a talent of mine
You know I die whenever I want
So go chase fortune when I'm gone
I'm guilty of reading my own past

So don't forget

If I don't live today, then I might be here tomorrow
If I don't live today, then I might be here tomorrow

 

GOD KNOWS

Dixgård/Norén © 2004 EMI Music Publishing

Well I turned left just like you told me to
I get excited by the moves you do
I’m on a mission and I’m gonna get away
Well I saw her standing all colored in red
I felt the blues just by the things she said
I want my mission so I can escape today

God knows - I ain’t sleeping but I want my line
God knows - I ain’t happy so I want it bad tonight
Oh brother can you help me out
God knows - I’ve got nothing so accept my time
God knows - it ain’t easy to behave in this spotlight 
Oh brother can you help me out…

Well I turned the page from number three to four
You had nothing on you by my bedroom door
You had your mission now I’m gonna get away
When this is over and our souls are saved
When I am buried when I’ve got my own cave
I’ve done my mission so I won’t be here today

God knows - I ain’t sleeping…

I turned right just like I thought you would 
I got excited like you said I would
I’m on a mission and I’m getting blown away
Well I saw her standing all colored in red
I felt the blues just by the things she said
I want my mission so I can escape today

God knows - I ain’t sleeping…
