Rarities /1995/
Exkluzivní album určené pro mimoevropský trh vydané se záměrem podpořit právě probíhající světové turné "Crash!Boom!Bang! Tour 1994 - 1995". Album je sbírkou různých zajímavých nahrávek, jsou zde například 3 live songy z "MTV unplugged", dema, remixy a 3 dříve nevydané skladby "The Sweet Hello, The Sad Goodbye", "The Voice" a "One Is Such A Lonely Number". Zvláště balada "The Sweet Hello, The Sad Goodbye" má hitový potenciál srovnatelný s velkými baladami formátu "Listen To Your Heart", bohužel nikdy nebyla snaha ji prosadit jako singl a tak zůstala "pohřbena" na desce "Rarities".

THE SWEET HELLO, THE SAD GOODBYE
Words & music by Per Gessle

Red like fire was the day I met you
I tell you now, there are no regrets
In this room there are many memories
Some are good some I try to forget
I thought we were the chosen ones
Who were supposed to fly

We´re very much the same you and I
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
Still waiting to get hurt time after time
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
When love lies in our hands we seem to run and hide
And I can´t help but wonder why
The sweet hello the sad goodbye

My heart was like a runaway train babe
I don´t belive I´ve ever felt more alive
In this room I hear voices linger
We´ve never talked about the price
You know you´re not the only one
Who knows how to cry

We´re very much the same you and I
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
Still waiting to get hurt time after time
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
When love lies in our hands we run away and hide
And I can´t help but wonder why
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
The sweet hello the sad goodbye

We´re very much the same you and I
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
Still waiting to get hurt time after time
The sweet hello the sad goodbye
When love lies in our hands we run away and hide
And I can´t help but wonder why
The sweet hello the sad goodbye



THE VOICE
Words & music by Per Gessle

Between the open heart and the whisper goodbye
There´s a perfect teardrop in your eye
Between the lover´s moon and the trembling sky
There´s a broken dream in your mind

And the voice is carrying the love you have lost
And the change of heart in someone you trust
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars
Hear the lonely voice in the dark

Between the careful touch and the breakaway kiss
There´s a beauty you can´t resist
Mmm, between the fall apart and the moment of bliss
There must be something more than this

And the voice is carrying the love you have lost
And the change of heart in someone you trust
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars
Hear the lonely voice in the dark

And the voice is carrying the love you have lost
And the change of heart in someone you trust
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars
Hear the lonely voice in the dark
And the voice is carrying the love you have lost
And the change of heart in someone you trust
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars
Hear the lonely voice in the dark
Lonely voice
Lonely voice in the dark...



ONE IS SUCH A LONELY NUMBER
Words & music by Per Gessle

I never knew when you walked in the room
I sold my soul to a stranger, an angel face yea
I never had this kind of sight before
This kind of vision white, hang on tight yea
I don´t know, girl, you´ve been around
Don´t you go, don´t you let me down

One is such a lonely number
To make the world go round
Three is just a little too much to touch, now honey
To make the world go round and round and round
One is such a lonely number

I think about what this has done to me
I´m going back to the start, back to school days
I never had this urge inside of me
To hear the sound of a heart fill the airwaves
There´s a love line, it´s tied to the ground
Leave you here, never let you down

One is such a lonely number
To make the world go round
Three is just a little too much to touch, now honey
To make the world go round and round and round
One is such a lonely number
To mend a broken heart
Three is just a little too much to touch, hey honey
To make the world go round and round and round and round

There´s a love line, it´s tied to the ground
Leave you here, never let you down

One is such a lonely number
To make the world go round
Three is just a little too much to touch, now honey
To make the world go round and round and round...
