Lyrics by Jonas Lundberg

 

He:

I don´t know what I´m feeling

Don´t know what to say

Don´t know her intention

She can turn away

But the rosy notion is

it could be my lucky day

 

She:

Should have seen it coming

Should have turned away

But the longing hours

in an empty bed

had me hoping, praying

it could be my lucky day

 

He:

So I stand before her

in the state of mind

of a gladiator

with no armor on

 

She:

So I stand before him

in the state of drain

As a dried up ocean

in need of rain

 

He:

When she´s smiling at me

I´m saying ”How do you do?”

 

I said ”My name is Andree,

with a double e”

 

She:

With a double nature

that I could not see

 

He & She:

And so the lover story goes

into wishful fantasy

 

Then we stand together

on Euphoric Lane

With a dream arising

of being whole again

 

She:

Then we stand together

being right as rain

Waiting for the ocean

Waiting in vain

And we forget the asking

the ”How do you do?”

 

She:

And so the lovers do what they can to cover every dent

He:

And so the lovers cling to the one afraid of having none

He & She:

And so the lovers tend to define the you as being mine

And so the lovers need to control the other narrow soul

 

He & She:

So we stand together at a crossing road

She:

Giving up the notion

He:

In a fighting mode

 

She:

So I stand before him

in a state of fear

With a tension rising

in the atmosphere

 

He & She:

So we stand together

in a tragic way

He:

I try to hold her tightly

She:

I try to turn away

 

He:

Then I stand before her

in a state of mind

So emasculated

and undermined

So when she tried to leave me

I had to make her stop

I had to make a mark

Then I said: How do you do?

I´m sorry. How do you do?
