I Was So Lucky

Notes

Per: If Robbie Williams had “Careless Whisper” on his album, he’d sell more albums than anybody else. Marie: Excuse me, but what are you talking about? Per: Nothing, really. But sometimes all that separates you from world domination is a sax solo.

– Have A Nice Day track by track, 1999

Versions

Per Gessle – Tits & Ass Demo, 4 June 1998

Available on:

Per: This is very special to me since it started out as a song for my son, Gabriel. The demo was made in June 1998. Hate that vocal performance of mine but the vibe in the track is really strong.

Roxette – Original Version 4:17

It’s no secret I’ve been waiting
But I didn’t expect this
Nothing will remain
Nothing stays the same
After you came

It’s no secret I’ve been starving
I never felt anything for years
I sat up all night
Just to watch your smile
When you’re sleeping

I was so lucky you came by
And turned a different corner
I could’ve been somewhere else
You could’ve passed by
Could’ve passed by

Come on and sail the sea with me
Come on let’s go around the world
Maybe find a flat
Or a canyon house
For the season

I was so lucky you came by
And turned a different corner
It could’ve been someone else
You had in mind
I was so lucky you found me
My rags turned gold and silver
I could’ve been somewhere else
You could’ve passed by
Could’ve passed by

What would you make of this, my baby?
The sun through the trees
Is there a better place to be?

I was so lucky you came by
And turned a different corner
It could have been someone else
You had in mind, oh my
I was so lucky you picked me
My trash turned to silver
Yea, I could have been somewhere else
You could’ve passed by
Could’be passed by
