Crystal
(Norberg)

Lonely as a cry out of the blue
Yes I really tried to be like you
Sleeping on the floor
No one woke me up
Won't come back no more
Won't be looking back

All my friends are gone or about to go
Wait for me, I'm slow, oh so very slow
Everyone's so fast
It's a different pace
I just try to smile
As I'm losing face

Winter is almost here
It's near
So cold and crystal clear
It's here
Preserving my love for now

Everybody's gone
I'm getting out of here
I know where it's from
I'm not invited there
When the time is right
I will go away
Waiting for my light
But it's not today

Winter is almost here
It's near
So cold and crystal clear
It's here
Preserving my love for now

All my friends are gone or about to go
Wait for me, I'm slow, oh so very slow
Everyone's so fast
It's a different pace
I just try to smile
As I'm losing face

Winter is almost here
It's near
So cold and crystal clear
It's here
And I'm freezing over

Winter is almost here
It's near
It's cold and crystal clear
It's here
Winter is almost here
It's near, it's near
It's cold and crystal clear
It's here
And I'm freezing over


A Thousand Reasons
(Norberg)

Bye '99
Another thousand years and she's not mine
Divorcee, can't you see?
She's gonna spend her future without me
So she left me in this century
So ring in the new year
Let me tell you I don't really care
So go on, have your fun
I'll be celebrating all alone
Don't care 'bout your stupid millenium

Breaking up is out of season
I can give you a thousand reasons

I cry, I'm a clown
And my feet don't seem to find the ground
I say "cheers", I’m sipping tears
Keep on running down my cheek
I try to cut down to a bottle a week

Breaking up is out of season
I can give you a thousand reasons

Breaking up is out of season
Breaking down is very easy, oh yeah
Well I can give you two thousand reasons, oh no no no no

Baby let me tell you 'bout '99
Let it ring in


That Would Be Something
(Norberg)

Won't you take a seat inside my aerostar
I don't have much time so I guess we won't come far
There is no two ways about it
Won't you come and talk about it now

Well you see, I've got some plans for you and me
I'm gonna tell you now but you will see
There is no two ways about it
Won't you come and talk about it now, wow wow wow wow

If you say it's OK
Yeah, that would be something
If you came with me now
Yeah, that would be something
If you gave me a hint
Yeah, that would be something now

I could take you anywhere and back again
Don't you keep me waiting here 'til Beggar's day
There is no two ways about it
Won't you come and talk about it now, wow wow wow wow

If you say it's OK
Yeah, that would be something
If you came with me now
Yeah, that would be something
If you gave me a hint
Yeah, that would be something now

Won't you take a seat inside my aerostar
I don't have much time so we won't come far
There is no two ways about it
Won't you come and talk about it now

If you say it's OK
Yeah, that would be something
If you came with me now
Yeah, that would be something
If you gave me a hint
Yeah, that would be something now

If you say it's OK
Yeah, that would be something
If you came with me now
Yeah, that would be something
If you gave me a hint
Yeah, that would be something now
Would be something now
Would be something now


The One That Got Away
(Norberg)

Hiding in our hearts
Dwelling in our memories
All the small mistakes
All the trivialities
Who's the one that got away?

As I see you babe
There is no one to blame
Whatever happens now
It will never be the same
I know what you're gonna say
I'm the one that got away anyway

Why can't we pretend to be happy tonight?
We can't we just vanish into the night?
Go out together like old times

Your tounge is sharp
And I'm not very smart
Yes you rub it in
You're piercing my heart
Now I only got my game
So who's the one that got away?

Why can't we pretend to be happy tonight?
(Why can't we pretend to be happy tonight?)
We can't we just vanish into the night?
(We can't we just vanish into the night?)
Go out together like old times

Who's the one that got away anyway?
Away anyway?

Why can't we pretend to be happy tonight?
(Why can't we pretend to be happy tonight?)
We can't we just vanish into the night?
(We can't we just vanish into the night?)
Go out together like old times
Like old times


No One Cares
(Norberg)

Wanna make my heart grow fonder
I try to speak and off you wander
Leaving me to do the talking
When I stop you keep on walking
Left to your own devices
I just hope you realise that
No one cares about you but me, oh no

My only heart you had to steal it
I'm such a mess I can't believe it
I hear you've been acting funny
Exit love and enter money
I guess you got what's coming to you
But you don't know it, do you, do you?
No one cares about you but me, oh no

(And you should hear)
You should hear what they say about you baby
(I guess they have)
I guess they've got to have somebody to blame
(They call you a liar)
They call you a liar and a thief baby
(But they don't know)
They don't know you anyway
They don't know you anyway

Baby you're a real good liar
Not the best but you're really trying
I think we've got a situation
But I can take humiliation

I guess you got what's coming to you
But you don't know it, do you, do you?
No one cares about you but me

(And you should hear)
You should hear what they say about you baby
(I guess they have)
I guess they've got to have somebody to blame
(They call you a liar)
They call you a liar and a thief baby
(It's not their problem)
It's not their problem anyway, oh yeah
(I can't believe)
I can't believe what I hear about you baby
(But they don't know)
They don't know you anyway
They don't know you anyway, oh yeah


North in the Country
(Norberg)

Let's go north, north in the country
Where I can be just the way I am
Let's go north, north in the country
That's the place I like the best
I hit the road, I had to get out of here
And I was guided by the northern light
I washed my hands in icy waters
That's the time I like the best
But if you ever want me to stay
All you gotta do is say it to me
If you ever want me to leave
That's OK, hey hey hey

I had a girl from way up the country
You know she smokes and drank like a man
She's the one, the one with a big heart
She's the girl I like the best

But if you ever want me to stay (to stay)
All you gotta do is say it to me
If you ever want me to leave
That's OK, hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

If you ever want me to stay (to stay)
All you gotta do is say it to me
If you ever want me to leave
That's OK, hey hey hey


Do I Do I
(Norberg/Kiesbye)

Do I, do I want you out of here?
Should I let you go?
Am I full of lies or just sincere?
I can't say yes or no
I can't explain
I can't explain those things I do
It's out of my hands
How I wish I only knew
Do I, do I want you for myself?
Do I, do I want somebody else?
Want somebody?

Didn't want to show you too much face
And give it all away
Suddenly I've fallen out of grace
I'm such an easy prey
I can't explain
I can't explain those things I do
It's out of my hands
How I wish I only knew

Do I, do I want you for myself?
Do I, do I want somebody else?
Want somebody else?
Want somebody else?
Want somebody?

I can't explain
I can't explain those things I do
It's out of my hands
How I wish I only knew

Do I, do I want you for myself?
Do I, do I want somebody else?
Want somebody else?
Want somebody else?
Want somebody else?


Anarchy
(Norberg)

I think you ought to know by now
We're running out of time
You know that you have gone too far
Why don't you read the signs?
You've been draining me out of my mind
It's so hard to believe
And I feel so empty deep inside
So dumb and decieved

Well it's anarchy
Can't you see?
Insanity
The letters on your forehead read
Anarchy
You and me
Security
The only thing I want right now

I really try to play it cool but I took the bait
You really laid it on me babe and now it's much too late

You've been driving me out of my mind
It's so hard to believe
And I feel so empty deep inside
So dumb and decieved

Well it's anarchy
Can't you see?
Insanity
The letters on your forehead read
Anarchy
You and me
Security
The only thing I want right now

You've been draining me out of my mind
It's so hard to believe
And I feel so empty deep inside
So dumb and decieved
It's so hard to believe

Well it's anarchy
Can't you see?
Insanity
The letters on your forehead read
Anarchy
You and me
Security
The only thing I want right now


Promise
(Norberg)

Just a moment of your time
Enough to love you all my life
My heart melted when I laid my eyes on you
Anyone can see that your dream come true
Heaven knows you are blessed
Only love and happiness
You make every new day shining bright
Easy as a feather takes to the sky

I am so in love with you
Makes me so proud knowing you, holding you
Loving you the way I do
I will never turn my back on you
I promise you
I promise you

You're my pride, my everything
When you smile angels sing
Always on my mind wherever I may be
I won't be alone, your light will shine on me

I am so in love with you
Makes me proud knowing you, holding you
Loving you the way I do
I will never turn my back on you
I promise you
I promise you

And where rainbows are made
I'll take you there one day
Walking in the rain
And then when I'm away
I know just where you are
My love is reaching far
Far beyond, beyond the stars

Always on my mind wherever I may be
I won't be alone, your light will shine on me

I am so in love with you
Makes me so proud knowing you, holding you
Loving you the way I do
I will never turn my back on you
I promise you
I promise you


Way to go
(Norberg)

I don't like to be alone
Stuck inside her big red heart of stone
What a waste
What a waste
What a waste of time
When I heard her close to door
She said she'll never let me out no more
What a way
What a way
What a way to play

And I want you to tell me
Tell me you're letting me out today
Tell me, tell me that I can come out again
What a way
What a way
What a way to go

Before I tear it apart
She has got to let me out of her heart
What a day
What a day
What a day today

If I learn to play games
I could maybe get away through her veins
What a way
What a way
What a way to go

And I want you to tell me
Tell me you're letting me out today
Tell me, tell me that I can come out again
What a way
What a way
What a way to go
What a way
What a way
What a way to go
What a way
What a way
What a way to go


Almost all the time in the world
(Norberg)

Got me to the world on time
So I don't need to run around
Everyone is everywhere
So I think I'm stayin' here

I got some time to spend
Won't you be my friend
'Cause I've got almost all the time in the world

Sittin' here in the sun
Waiting for my time to come
All my friends are getting old
Got no time for rock 'n' roll

I got some time to spend
Won't you be my friend
'Cause I've got almost all the time in the world
That's right baby

But even I get lonely once in a while
Yeah, even I, I, I, wow!

Surfin' on the internet
Goin' on a cybertrip
No more surfin USA
I wanna go there anyway

I got some time to spend
Won't you be my friend
'Cause I've got almost all the time in the world
Yeah, I've got almost all the time in the world
