Roxette

Roxette is a Swedish pop rock duo, consisting of Marie Fredriksson (vocals) and Per Gessle (vocals and guitar). Formed in 1986, the duo became an international act in the late 1980s, when they released their breakthrough album Look Sharp!. Their third album Joyride, which was released in 1991, became just as successful as its predecessor. Roxette went onto achieve nineteen UK Top 40 hits and several US Hot 100 hits, including four US number-ones with "The Look", "Listen to Your Heart", "It Must Have Been Love", and "Joyride". Other hits include "Dangerous", "Fading Like a Flower", "Dressed for Success" and "The Centre of the Heart". more »

I once knew a girl 
I can't remember her name but I remember her face 'cause her sister looked the same.

They both left school, but they couldn't find a job
So they said farewell and stole a small town car.

As they were riding by the beach some summer night 
The radio shouted out one of those songs that might just change your life 
It went like this: "Checkin' in checkin' out 
Making love I like watching all your fireworks 
I like it when I light those stars in your eyes 
Just like fireworks in the sky" 
Yes it did...

Throwing some poems to the ports and docks 
They were sleeping outdoors pushing all their luck.

They sent me a letter full of pills and thrills 
Then they both got rich and moved to Hollywood Hills.

Yea they made lots of money playing folk guitar 
'Cause everywhere the boys went crazy just to hear these words of art: "Checkin' in checkin' out
Take it to the sky 
Making love I like watching all your fireworks 
I like it when I light those stars in your eyes 
Just like fireworks in the sky".

They're coming to get you 
They're coming to get you now 
Coming to get you now 
Watch the sky!
