Lyrics

Close you eyes and count to ten
better days will come again

We’re wildroses in the dark
I can hear your beating heart

We live for the night
We live for the day

When all lights have faded
We’re building an army of us

So trust we’re driven by lust
When all lights have faded
We’re building an army of us

Do we dream too much
We’re building an army of us

Do we dream too much
When it doesn’t seem enough

Do we dream too much
We’re building an army of us

What we built is meant to last
One step forward no step back

We’re not broken we’re just bent
Close your eyes and count to ten

We live for the night
We live for the day

When all lights have faded
We’re building an army of us

So trust we’re driven by lust
When all lights have faded
We’re building an army of us

Do we dream too much
When it doesn’t seem enough

Do we dream to0 much
We’re building an army of us

Oooohoooohoooo
Oohoooohooooo

Army of us
Oohoooohooooo

This love this love is bigger
This love this love is bigger
This love this love is bigger

Huuuuuuuh

Do we dream too much
When it doesn’t seem enough

Do we dream too much
We’re building an army of us

Oohoooohooooo
Oohoooohooooo
We’re building an army of us

Oohoooohooooo
We’re building an army of us

Bye bye bye

Four five six so sick of your tricks

One two three in a second I leave
I don’t wanna be mean but

We’re never gonna work it out
you’re to dumb to see

So I’m just gonna shout it out
we’re not ment to be

Here we go again with bad excuses
are you kidding me

No waiting for better times
I do it all for me

You
Do you

Already told you to go

Three four five and a million times
say sorry but know you

You did enough
I’m hanging up
just give it up

One two three in a second I leave
I don’t wanna be mean but

You you had no reason
to mess with my feelings
I’m done and mean it

We’re never gonna work it
you’re too dumb to see

So I’m just gonna shout it out
we’re not ment to be

Here we go again with bad excuses

No waiting for better times
I do it all for me

You
Do you

Here we go again with bad excuses

No waiting for better time
I do it all for me

You
Do you

Lyrics:

We’ve been in this bed since
can’t remember when we crawled in

Tangled in the sheets no
we will never leave we’re all in

They say
something is wrong with us
The pleasure and pain’s too much sometimes

Trying to take what’s ours
There’s no point

Cause they don’t understand how much
I love it I love it
I love I love I love it

My parents don’t like it
But don’t care it’s exciting

It’s different I’d miss it
Without you I ain’t living

Cause we’re one in a billion
I love I love I love it

I love it I love it
I love I love I love it

My parents don’t like it
But don’t care it’s exciting

It’s different I’d miss it
Without you I ain’t living

Cause we one in a billion
I love I love I love it

Voices in my head their talking me to death
it’s constant

But I would never let them get inside my chest
I promise

They say
something is wrong with us
The pleasure and pain’s too much sometimes

Trying to take what’s ours
There’s no point

Cause they don’t understand how much
I love it I love it
I love I love I love it

My parents don’t like it
But don’t care it’s exciting

It’s different I’d miss it
Without you I ain’t living

Cause we one in a billion
I love I love I love it

I love it I love it
I love I love I love it

My parents don’t like it
But don’t care it’s exciting

It’s different I’d miss it
Without you I ain’t living

Cause we one in a billion
I love I love I love it

I love it I love it
I love I love I love it

My parents don’t like it
But don’t care it’s exciting

It’s different I’d miss it
Without you I ain’t living

Cause we’re one in a billion
I love I love I love it

Lyrics:

Musiken hörs här utanför
minnet från förr griper tag

En sommarkväll för länge sen
en flicka som var vildare än jag

Hon doftade av rosor och jasmin
hon skrattade och sa nu är du min

Kom låt oss dansa här på borden
detta är vår stund på jorden
låt oss leva leva livet

Och som solen ska vi stråla
för kärleken vi skålar
låt oss leva leva livet
här och nu
ja leva livet
leva leva livet

Jag knäpper upp kavajen
här min kära får jag lov

Så många år har gått
och du har stänk av silver i ditt hår

Fiolen spelar som för oss min vän
låt oss älska om och om igen

Kom låt oss dansa här på borden
detta är vår stund på jorden
låt oss leva leva livet

Och som solen ska vi stråla
för kärleken vi skålar
låt oss leva leva livet
här och nu
ja leva livet
leva leva livet
här och nu
ja leva leva livet
leva leva livet

Kom låt oss dansa här på borden
detta är vår stund på jorden
låt oss leva leva livet

Låt oss ramla ut i natten
innan tårarna och skratten
låt oss leva leva leva livet

Våga älska och förlora
inga drömmar är för stora
låt oss leva leva livet
här och nu

Ja leva livet
ta ingenting för givet här och nu
ja leva leva livet
leva leva livet

Lyrics:

Heeey Reisy
Dags att kicka back
Är det för tidigt för varandra

Nånting är på gång här
Kunde inte vänta nej nej
Låt oss stanna i en feeling
För den här grejen som vi har den är helig

Vi kickar bara back när vi är med varandra
Tiden rinner bort som i sanden
Rädda för nothing bara va som de andra

När du ringer på min lur
Du får vänta ingenting
Jag stannar upp för dig
Låter känna dig en kling

Så ta mig ann och ta steget
Ta min hand och dansa med mig i regnet

Vi kan chilla bara ta ett steg i taget
Hålla dig så hårt känna andetagen

Vi lever bara en gång baby
nakna dansar vi i regnet

Stäng nu dina ögon bara lita på mig
Vi kanske inte alltid kommer ha imorgon
Vi lever bara en gång baby
nakna dansar vi i regnet

Vi möttes upp i smyg bakom scener
Sprang iväg från allt vingar fria

Spelar ingen roll vad de säger
När vi ligger bak i min Bentley

O du tar mig i din hand
Du viskar en gång till
Vi gör det allt igen
Och tusen gånger till

Så ta mig ann o ta steget
Ta min hand o dansa med mig i regnet baby

Kickar bara back när vi är med varandra
Tiden rinner bort som i sanden
Rädda för nothing bara va som de andra

När du ringer på min lur
Får vänta ingenting
Jag stannar upp för dig
Låter känna dig en kling
Så ta mig ann och ta steget
Ta min hand och dansa med mig i regnet baby

Vi kan chilla bara ta ett steg i taget
Hålla dig så hårt känna andetagen
Vi lever bara en gång baby
nakna dansar vi i regnet

Stäng nu dina ögon bara lita på mig
Vi kanske inte alltid kommer ha imorgon
Vi lever bara en gång baby
nakna dansar vi i regnet

Vi lever bara en gång baby
nakna dansar vi i regnet
