Roxette – Fingertips

Demo, 28 January 1992

Original Version 3:22

You’re sliding down a dream, oh yeah
Where nights are born in blue, that’s the truth
You’re swimming in a stream, oh yeah
Fish are jumping too, next to you

Suddenly you notice someone’s at the door
You could swear you’ve been through this all before

Then she runs
Her fingertips through your hair
Your life has just begun
Her fingers
They are everywhere
You’re floating light like air
Leaving the ground
And she shines on just like the sun

You’re gazing at the sky, oh my
The stars are out tonight, shining bright
You’re waving to a cloud, bye-bye
You’re drowning in the smile of his eyes

Suddenly you feel there’s no time for a deal
Though a voice tells you it’s for real

And she runs
Her fingertips through your hair
And life has just begun
Her fingers
They are everywhere
You’re floating light like air
Leaving the ground
She-she shines on just like the sun

It’s just a sunny afternoon
Somebody’s singing songs of love, child
You love a lazy afternoon once in a while
