It Will Take a Long, Long Time

Notes

Per: More strings. Bring out the handkerchiefs. Marie: What was it you said… ”my great capacity and your simple songs…”

– Have A Nice Day track by track, 1999

Per: Cecilia asks if we knew that this song is included in the Runaway Bride-movie. Yes, we know. It was the same director (Gerry Marshall) who did Petty Woman and he wanted another Rox song in his new movie. Nice thought, don’t you think?

Roxette – Original Version 4:03

Sunny called
I was in the hall
And made a note
I have to paint the kitchen walls
An angel smiled across the room
All in all it was a lazy afternoon

Then I thought about you
I think it was some sweet song that I heard

Got to get going going ahead
It will take a long, long time
Got to go ahead and deal with my life
It has taken such a long time this time

Sunny called
I was in the bath
And heard the rain hit the roof and tiles
Real hard (hit the roof real hard/hit the roof)
Then I ran through my magazines
A few letters poorly hidden in a jar
(hidden in a jar/oh what a jar!)

And I thought about you
It must have been some old pictures I found

Got to get going going ahead
It will take a long, long time, yea yea
Got to go ahead and deal with my life
It has taken such a long time this time
