Something in the System

Notes

Per: Yea well… this one was written for Roxette. However, it felt too long and we forgot about it for a couple of years. When we put together “The Junior Suite”-medley on the Son of a Plumber-album this popped up in my head. So we used a bit of it, played it faster and suddenly… it all made sense. Me like.

Son of a Plumber – Original Version

There’s something in the air
There is something in the system
I can’t sleep or stay awake
It’s far beyond my wisdom

And I really get so high
I can’t get you off my my my mind
This has to be a sign
A sign of the times

Mind a little tenderness
I’m empty and so hollow
I swear to god
I can see your face upon my pillow

And I really get so high
I can’t get you off my my my mind
This has to be a sign
A sign of the times

And I
I’m thinkin’ day and night
How to make it right
Cos I wanna be inside
So deep inside your mind
So deep inside your mind
