Roxette – Original Version 3:58

I once knew a girl
I can’t remember her name
But I remember her face
Cos 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 up 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

Yeah they made lots of money playing folk guitar
Cos 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!
