Forbidden Fruit

3:55

WORDS: LARS E. CARLSSON

VERSE 1:

WHEN I SAW YOU PASSING BY
I ACTED LIKE A CLOWN
SOMETHING HAPPENED HERE INSIDE
MY HEART WENT UP AND DOWN
FROM THAT MOMENT YOU´RE THE ONE
I´VE GOT YOU ON MY MIND
I DON´T SEE NO OTHERS, I AM BLIND

REFRAIN:

´CAUSE YOU ARE MY ONLY LOVE
I WON´T LET YOU GO
YOU´RE THE ONE THAT I ADORE
AND I WANT YOU SO
BUT YOU ARE FORBIDDEN FRUIT
DANGEROUS TO EAT
NOW IT´S BURNING INSIDE ME
AND YOU ARE THE HEAT

VERSE 2:

WHEN I´VE CLOSED MY EYES TONIGHT
I´LL DREAM A DREAM OF YOU
AND I HOPE THAT SOMEDAY SOON
IT HOPEFULLY COMES TRUE
I´VE GOT NOTHING MORE TO HIDE
LET´S PLAY THE GAME OF LOVE
COME TO ME MY ANGEL FROM ABOVE

REFRAIN:
´CAUSE YOU ARE...

REFRAIN:
´CAUSE YOU ARE...

CODA:
IT´S BURNING INSIDE ME
YOU ARE THE HEAT

Hand In Hand

4:29

Life can be sunshine
Life can be rain
Life can be roses
Or just pain

But I don't have to hide
With you by my side
Walking hand in hand

Life can be trouble
It can be tough
Life can be lonely

Or very rough
But I don't have to hide
With you by my side
Walking hand in hand

Life can be so wonderful
Yes it can give a lot
Life can be so rich
The only life we've got

Life can be summer
It can be spring
You never know dear
What life can bring

But I don't have to hide
With you by my side
Walking hand in hand

Billy's A Boxer

4:02

Billy´s a boxer
he really likes a fight.
When his nose is bleeding
he says "I´m allright".

Billy´s a boxer
when he is in the ring.
That´s the thing that matters
yeah, boxing is his thing.

With his gloves on
he´s a star.
As a boxer he´s just a beginner
but Billy is a winner...

Billy´s a boxer
he is one of a kind.
People in the business
say this man is a find.

Billy´s a boxer
he trains hard every day.
He´s as fast as lighting
a "knock out king" they say.

Billy´s a boxer
he works out ev'ry day.
Rocky is his hero
he´s fighting, come what may.

The Guitar and I

4:02

THE GUITAR AND I the guitar and I
have always been
as one together, so it seems

a life-long love
there's been no other
that could ever break my heart

a song to wake
a song to sleep
its harmony soothes my soul

six silver strings
sing out so sweet
a symphony, encased in she

a work of art
a sight of beauty
a tone that rings most truly

a golden hue
reflecting light
resonates, my hearts delight

cedar sweet
and rosewood deep
romantic spanish cypress weeps.

THE AMERICAN WAY

4:02

THE AMERICAN WAY, THE AMERICAN WAY
IT´S THE ONLY WAY TO LIVE, IT´S A-OKEY.
IT WORKED YESTERDAY AND IT WORKS TODAY
THE AMERICAN WAY, THE AMERICAN WAY.

VERSE 1: WE GOT THE GREATEST MUSIC
THE GREATEST MOVIE STARS
WE GOT THE GREATEST CITIES
WE GOT BIG FANCY CARS.
WE GOT THE GREATEST BUILDINGS
WE GOT THAT GRAND OLD FLAG
WE GOT THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS
TRUE FREEDOM IS OUR BAG.

THE AMERICAN WAY, THE AMERICAN WAY...

BUT WE GOT CRIME AND GAMBLING
YES, WE HAVE PROBLEMS TOO
BUT TELL US WHO IS PERFECT
COME ON, JUST NAME A FEW.
WE GOT OUR PRIDE AND PASSION
WE GOT OUR HISTORY
WE GOT SOME THINGS TO TEACH YOU
´BOUT REAL DEMOCRACY.

THE AMERICAN WAY, THE AMERICAN WAY...

WE GOT SAN FRANCISCO
CHICAGO, WE LOVE YOU.
WE GOT THAT WINDY CITY
NEW YORK, WE LOVE YOU TOO.

THE AMERICAN WAY, THE AMERICAN WAY...

EXPLAIN

4:29

Can anyone explain
why the game of love is difficult?
-First happiness...-then loneliness...
when somebody says goodbye, how it hurts...

Can anyone explain
why a rose will bloom and then will fade?
-So beautiful...and colourful...
but it will die and never come back.

Yes, I wish that I know
Wond´ring why is it so?
Why a soft gentle touch
Sometimes hurts very much?
Who will make my day?
-Difficult to say...

If you loose your heart
make a brand new start.
Who will hear end see
How life´s gonna be?
It´s a secrecy no one knows.

Can anyone explain
Why do everything soon have an end?
-No longer last... a life goes fast...
But memories still live in your mind.

Don't Brake My Heart

4:29

Don't Brake My Heart
I need you by my side
Please, stay with me
Jus for a while
I'm longin' for your touch

Don't ever go
I miss you night and day
You are the one
The one that I want
My love, Don't brake my heart

When I'm dreaming
I hear your voice
It's whispering to me
Come hold me closer
Please, never set me free

Don't break my heart
My love will never die
Please stay here close to my heart
My love, don't break my heart

When I'm dreaming
I hear your voice
It's whispering to me
Come hold me closer
Please, never set me free

Don't break my heart
My love will never die
Please stay here close to my heart
My love, don't break my heart
