DANCE LIKE SWEDES

Written By: MATTHEW TELLIHO

I CAME ACROSS MY THREE PIECE SUIT THE OTHER DAY
AND THE MEMORIES CAME RUSHING BACK SO CLEAR
I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT TWENTY YEARS HAVE GONE AWAY
SINCE THE TIME I WAS SO YOUNG AND HAD NO FEAR

THAT WAS A TIME WHEN MY LIFE GOT ALL TURNED AROUND
I WAS REBORN INTO THE GARDEN OF EDEN
WHEN I SAW ABBA MY JAW DROPPED RIGHT TO THE GROUND
I COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT GOD HAD BROUGHT ME BACK FROM SWEDEN

FROM THE LAND OF MIDNIGHT SUN, I THOUGHT THAT THEY HAD COME
TO SHOW ME HOW TO SATISFY MY WANTS AND NEEDS
FOUND THAT ONE DESIRE, TO SET MY SOUL ON FIRE
WAS TO LEARN JUST HOW TO DANCE LIKE SWEDES

DANCE SWEDES

I NEVER BOUGHT THAT BROOKLYN GUIDO KIND OF THING
WHERE MONTE CARLOS WERE ONLY OWNED BY MACHO MEN
I GOT A SAAB AND DYED MY HAIR BLOND IN THE SPRING
AND IN THE FALL I LEGALLY CHANGED MY NAME TO SVEN

FROM THE LAND OF MIDNIGHT SUN, I THOUGHT THAT THEY HAD COME
TO SHOW ME HOW TO SATISFY MY WANTS AND NEEDS
FOUND THAT ONE DESIRE, TO SET MY SOUL ON FIRE
WAS TO LEARN JUST HOW TO DANCE LIKE SWEDES

DANCE LIKE SWEDES

I WAS OBSESSED AND FOLLOWED THEM BOTH NIGHT AND DAY
I STUDIED CLOSELY HOW THEY MOVED AND DANCED AROUND
I MADE A LIVING SELLING MEATBALLS THAT I MADE
EVERY TIME THEY CAME ON STAGE, I WAS SPELLBOUND

NOW IT SEEMS SO LONG AGO, I SAW THEIR FINAL SHOW
YOU KNOW ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END
PUT AWAY THAT SUIT OF WHITE, THAT HAS BECOME TOO TIGHT
BUT KEEP THOSE MEMORIES OF BACK THEN

FROM THE LAND OF MIDNIGHT SUN, I THOUGHT THAT THEY HAD COME
TO SHOW ME HOW TO SATISFY MY WANTS AND NEEDS
FOUND THAT ONE DESIRE, TO SET MY SOUL ON FIRE
WAS TO LEARN JUST HOW TO DANCE LIKE SWEDES

DANCE LIKE SWEDES, DANCE LIKE SWEDES
DANCE LIKE SWEDES, DANCE LIKE SWEDES

REGGAE LULLABYE

Written By: MATTHEW TELLIHO

CLOSE YOUR EYES
NIGHT TIME NOW HAS FALLEN
EASE YOUR MIND
AT LEAST UNTIL TOMORROW
FLOAT AWAY
LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU NOW
YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY INTO SLUMBER
IN A REGGAE LULLABYE

DON’T RESIST
YOU’LL FIND YOURSELF SO HELPLESS
IT WILL PERSIST
TILL YOU BECOME SO SELFLESS
IN YOUR MIND
YOU GO BEYOND THE LIGHT OF DAY
UNTIL YOU FIND THOSE EMBERS FADING

NOW DO NOT FEAR THIS PLACE
WHICH HAS NO TIME AND HAS NO SPACE
YOU’RE FREE TO PLAY WITH THE ANGELS
IN A REGGAE LULLABYE

DRIFT ALONG
YOUR SOUL WILL JOIN IN SINGING
A SACRED SONG
ABOUT THE LOVE YOU’RE BRINGING
YOU NEED NO MORE
JUST DANCE AMONG THE JOYOUS LIGHT OF BEAMING SMILES
THERE TO GREET YOU

WHERE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS COLLIDE
ALL AROUND YOU AS YOU RIDE
TO THAT POINT WHERE ALL IS NOTHING

REMEMBER IN YOUR HEART THIS SCENE
BECAUSE ONE DAY YOU’’LL LEAVE TO DREAM
AND YOU’LL BE GONE WITHOUT RETURNING
IN A REGGAE LULLABYE

YOU'LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN

Written By: MATTHEW TELLIHO

YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN
WHEN SOMETHING HAS ENDED THEN IT’S TIME TO BEGIN
YOU MIGHT FEEL SAD ABOUT LOVE YOU CAN’T FIND
YOU MIGHT FEEL RELIEF ABOUT A LOAD OFF YOUR MIND
SORROW OR JOY IT WILL COME TO AN END
YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN

THE HARDER YOU TRY YOU KNOW THE WORSE IT WILL BE
AND FORGET ALL THAT STUFF ABOUT THE FISH IN THE SEA
FORGET ABOUT MAKING ELABORATE PLANS
IT JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS COMPLETELY OUT OF YOUR HANDS
IT MAY BE A STRANGER IT MAY BE A FRIEND
YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN

DON’T WAIT BACK IN THE DAYS GONE BY SPENT WITH ANOTHER ONE
DON’T SAY THAT THE TIME YOU HAD REALLY WASN’T FUN
DON’T DENY YOUR MISTAKES ‘CAUSE IN REALITY THERE’S ALWAYS SOME
HOLD ON

DON’T WORRY ‘BOUT THE FUTURE AND WHERE YOU MIGHT BE
WHEN YOU SAIL ON THE RIVER HAVE NO FEAR OF THE SEA
IF YOU KNOW YOURSELF WELL JUST LET YOUR HEART BE YOUR GUIDE
WITH THE WIND IN YOUR FACE SIT BACK ENJOY THE RIDE
‘CAUSE SOMETHING MIGHT BE WAITING JUST AROUND THE NEXT BEND
YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN

IF YOU THINK YOUR RUNNING LATE YOU BETTER BE WISE
‘CAUSE MOST WHO CAN’T WAIT WILL TEND TO COMPROMISE
AND NONE OF THEM REALLY WANT THE TRUTH TO BE TOLD
THEY’RE JUST AFRAID TO END UP BEING LONELY AND OLD
IF YOU’RE TRUE TO YOURSELF YOU WILL BE YOUNG TO THE END
YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN

YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN
YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE YOU’LL BE IN LOVE AGAIN
YOU WERE IN LOVE BEFORE
