THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. (Steve Thompson Extended Version) 
(Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
 
* Previously released on "The Sun Always Shines On T.V." 12" record.
 
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
To me...
I Reached inside myself
And found nothing there
To ease the pressure of
My ever worrying mind
All my powers waste away
I fear the crazed and lonely looks
The mirror's sending me
These Days
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Please don't ask me to defend
The shameful lowlands
Of the way I'm drifting
Gloomily through time
(Touch me)
I reached inside myself today
(Give all your love)
Thinking there's got to be some way
To keep my troubles distant
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me (To me)
To me...
 

 

DRIFTWOOD  

(Pål Waaktaar)
(Produced by A-ha)

 

* This track was previously released as B-side of "The Sun Always Shines On T.V." single.
 
Oh come pity me a poor mad sailor
Stranded on this love
Here I lie like driftwood, honey
Is this what I've become
I go high over down under
At a lady's will
Under you
At a lady's will
I'm drifting still, I'm drifting still
So I ask in fading innocence
And all my youthful rage
Will your hands still touch me
When my face has fallen in with age
And I go high over down under
At a lady's will
Under you
High over down under
At a lady's will
Under you
At a lady's will
I'm drifting still, I'm drifting still
High over down under
At a lady's will
High over down under
At a lady's will
 

 
TAKE ON ME (Extended Version)  
(Words: Morten Harket / Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
(Music: Paul Waaktaar-Savoy / Magne Furuholmen)
 
* This version was released on the 1985 12" record of "Take On Me".
 
We're talking away
I don't know what I'm to say
I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, OK?
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day or two
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But I'm me
Stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)  
I'll be gone
In a day or two
Oh the things that you say
Is it life
Just to play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)  
I'll be gone
In a day or two
(Take on me - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
I'll be gone (Take on me - Take on me)
In a day or two (Take me on - Take on me)
(Take on me - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
