YOU ARE THE ONE 
(Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
 
You are the one who has done me in
Guess you knew from the start
I call again, but there's no one in
Don't know where, with whom you've been
But I do
Love you
Anyway you want me to
You are the one... now the state I'm in!
Catching you was so hard
I fought for you, did you let me win!?
You don't even care, you don't care
Where I've been
But I do
Love you
Anyway you want me to
You are the one
I’ve done all I can do
All the letters... I've sent through
Put my life in the Palms of your hands
Maybe now you can see
That it's got to be me
But if you leave me
I'll understand, yeah
If you leave me, I'll understand
You are the one who has done me in
Guess you knew from the start
I call your friends, but there's no one in
Catching you is so hard
You are the one!
You are the one!
You are the one! (You!)
You are the one! (Are)
You are the one! (The)
(One)
 

 
CRY WOLF
(Words: Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
(Music: Mags)
 
"You know
Night I left the city,
I dreamt of a wolf..."
Oooh
He came from where the winds are cold
And truth is seen through keyholes
Strange longings that'll never sleep
Oh, now he's come where no hearts beat
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
You can start, but you cannot stop
You give in, but you can't give up
You can tell all your desperate jokes
To a world that puts
Your love on hold
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry  
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now  
"I dreamt of a wolf"
"You know"
"The wolf"
The sunken-in eyes
And the pain in his cries
A shape in the dark...
Cry!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Now!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooooooooh
Cry wolf Oooooooooh
 

 
I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU  
(Pål Waaktaar)  
 
It wasn't the rain that washed away...
Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
Putting the gun down on the bedside table
I must have realised
It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
And I could have sworn it wasn't me
Yet I did it all so coldly
Almost slowly
Plain for all to see
Oh c'mon please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
How can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you
Hey...
I can still hear our screams competing
You're hissing your S's like a snake
Now in the mirror stands
Half a man
I thought no one could break
It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
Nervously drumming on: Run away
But I want the guilt to get me
Thoughts to wreck me
Preying on my mind
So, please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you
Please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
Please now
Talk to me
Oh, tell me what to do (Helpful)
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you  
You
I've been losing you
You
I've been losing you
(Talk to me)
(Run away... Run away...)
Run away !
 

 
TRAIN OF THOUGHT 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
He likes to have the morning paper's
Crossword solved
Hey!
Words go up words come down
Forwards backwards twisted round
Hey!
He grabs a pile of letters from a small suitcase
Disappears into an office
It's another working day
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
He likes a bit of reading on the subway home
Oooooo
A distant radio's whistling tunes that nobody knows
At home a house awaits him, He unlocks the door
Thinking once there was a sea here
But there never was a door
And his thoughts are full of strangers
And his eyes too numb to see
And nothing that he knows of
And nowhere where he's been
Was never quite like this
Yeah
Hey!
Wo-Oh Wo-Oh
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
And at heart
He's full of strangers
Dodging on his train of thought
Train of thought
 

 
MAYBE MAYBE 
(Mags)
 
Maybe you were joking
When you said that you were walking out on me
Maybe, maybe
Maybe I was joking
When I said that I was running out on you
Maybe, maybe
I could be wrong, so wrong
I could be wrong, so wrong
Yes, I could be wrong
I don't know, but it's been said
Decisions travel far from heart to head
Maybe, maybe
Maybe it was over
When you chucked me out the Rover at full speed
Maybe, maybe
Oh baby
I could be wrong, so wrong
I could be wrong, so wrong
I could be wrong, so wrong
I could be wrong, so wrong
I could be wrong, so wrong
I could be wrong, so wrong (Maybe, maybe)
I could be wrong, so wrong (Maybe walking out on me)
I could be wrong, so wrong (Maybe running out on you)
I could be wrong, so wrong (Maybe, maybe)
I could be wrong, so wrong
 

 
HUNTING HIGH AND LOW  
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
Here I am
And within the reach of my hands
She's sound asleep and she's sweeter now
Than the wildest dream could have seen her
And I watch her slipping away
Though I know I'll be hunting high and low
High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
Hunting high and low
High
There's no end to lengths I'll go
To find her again
Upon this my dreams are depending
Through the dark
I sense the pounding of her heart
Next to mine
She's the sweetest love I could find
So I guess I'll be hunting high and low
High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
High and low
High
Do you know what it means to love you
I'm hunting high and low
And now she's telling me she's got to go away
I'll always be hunting high and low
Only for you (And now she's telling me)
Watch me tearing myself to pieces
Hunting high and low
High
There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
Oh, for you I'll be hunting high and low
 

 
SCOUNDREL DAYS  
(Words: Pål Waaktaar)
(Music: Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
 
Was that somebody screaming...
It wasn't me for sure
I lift my head up from uneasy pillows
Put my feet on the floor
I cut my wrist on a bad thought
And head for the door
Outside on the pavement
The dark makes no noise
I can feel the sweat on my lips
Leaking into my mouth
I'm heading out for the steep hills
They're leaving me no choice
And see... as our lives are in the making
We believe through the lies and the hating
That love goes free
For want of an option
I run the wind round
I dream pictures of houses burning
Never knowing nothing else to do
With death comes the morning
Unannounced and new
Was it too much to ask for
To pull a little weight...
They forgive anything but greatness
These are scoundrel days
And I'm close to calling out their names
As pride hits my face
Yeah
And see... as our lives are in the making
We believe through their lies and the hating
That love goes free through scoundrel days
I reach the edge of town
I've got blood in my hair
Their hands touch my body
From everywhere
But I know that I've made it
As I run into the air
And see... as our lives are in the making
We believe through the lies and the hating
That love goes free
Through scoundrel days
 

 
TAKE ON ME  
(Words: Morten Harket / Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
(Music: Pål Waaktaar / Mags)
 
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 that's 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 on me...)
 

 
THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
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
Wo-ohhhhh
All my powers waste away
I fear the crazed and lonely looks
The mirror's sending me
These Days
Wo-ohhhhh
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
Wo-ohhhhh
(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
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me (To me)
To me...
 

 
OCTOBER   
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
Dawn awaits a sleepless English town
Of coloured Grey
Here I roam the streets without you
As summer fades away
Down in the city at nights
The cold wind blows
Wherever you may be right now
It must be getting late
You're probably asleep already
I am wide awake
Down in the city at nights
Oooh
"Don't be lonely"
So you've told me
But don't you worry now
Loneliness can be ignored
And time has shown me how
Down in the city
I'm missing you so much
Down in the city
Down in the city...
