Lyrics by Jonas Lundberg

 

MAN

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

 

WOMAN

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

 

MAN

So I stand before her

in the state of mind

of a gladiator

with no armour on

 

WOMAN

So I stand before him

in the state of drain

As a dried up ocean

in need of rain

 

MAN

When she´s smiling at me

I´m saying ”How do you do?”

I said ”My name is Andree,

with a double e”

 

WOMAN

With a double nature

that I could not see

 

MAN AND WOMAN

And so the lover story goes

into wishful fantasy

Then we stand together

on Euphoric Lane

With a dream arising

of being whole again

 

WOMAN

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?”

 

WOMAN

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

MAN

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

MAN AND WOMAN

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

And so the lovers need to control the other narrow soul

 

MAN AND WOMAN 

So we stand together

at a crossing road

WOMAN

Giving up the notion

MAN 

In a fighting mode

 

WOMAN

So I stand before him

in a state of fear

With a tension rising

in the atmosphere

 

MAN AND WOMAN

So we stand together

in a tragic way

MAN

I try to hold her tightly

WOMAN

I try to turn away

 

MAN

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?
