Roxette – Pearls of Passion

Notes

Per: This one was called “Pearls and Passion” when I wrote it. Someone misspelled it at EMI Sweden (think it was Kjell Andersson, head of A&R) so I kept the “new” title. Artistic, heh?

Original Version 3:33

There was a banquet of believers
When we walked into the room
December days of Christmas
Felt like days in June
And there were morning light
And sunrise chimes echoed all around
Now’s the time for weary minds
The moon is northern bound

And you know I’m going back
Going back today
Back to where I came from
And you know I’m going back
Going back to stay
To the alleys where pearls of passion came my way

There’s a promise in the twilight
It’s so innocent and wild.
Two hearts that break the silence
You can hear a distant cry
And there’s emptiness and loneliness
It’s more or less the same
Let’s run between the raindrops babe
And catch the midnight train

And you know I’m going back
Going back today
Back to where I came from
And you know I’m going back
Going back to stay
To the alleys where pearls of passion came my way

And you know I’m going back
Going back today
Back to where I came from
And you know I’m going back
Going back to stay
To the alleys where pearls of passion came my way
