T'aint no big thing to wait for the bell to ring
T'aint no big thing, the toll of the bell

Aggravated, spare for days
I troll downtown the red light place
Jump up bubble up whats in store
Love is the drug, and I need to score
Showing out, showing out, hit and run
Boy meets girl where the beat goes on
Stitched up tight, can't shake free
Love is the drug, got a hook on me

Oh, catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh, can't you see
Love is the drug for me

Late that night I park my car
Stake my place in the singles bar
Face to face, toe to toe
Heart to heart as we hit the floor
Lumber up, limbo down
The locked embrace, the stumble round
I say go, she say yes
Dim the lights, you can guess the rest

Oh, catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh, can't you see
Love is the drug, got a hook in me
Oh, catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh, can't you see
Love is the drug for me

Oh, love is, love is, love is the drug

It's All Over...

image2129

Well, baby use to stay out all night long
She made me cry, she done me wrong
She hurt my eyes open, that's no lie
Tables turning, now her turn to cry

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Well, she used to run around with ev'ry man in town
Spent all my money playing a highclass game
She put me out, it was a pity how I cried
The tables turning now, her turn to cry

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Well, I used to wake 'the morning, get my breakfast in bed
When I gotten worried she could ease my aching head
But now she's here and there with every man in town
Still trying to take me for that same old clown

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

It's Only Rock 'N Roll...

If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would you think the boy is strange? Ain't he strange?

If I could win ya, if I could sing ya
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried? If I cried?

I said I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it
I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on the stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep down in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would ya think the boy's insane? He's insane

I said I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, yeah, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

And do ya think that you're the only girl around?
I bet you think you're the only woman in town
Oh, yeah

I said I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it
Oh, I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it, oh yeah
I know it's only rock´n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, ah, I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it
(Only rock´n roll but) I like it...

Don't Cry...

image2045

Talk to me softly
There's something in your eyes
Don't hang your head in sorrow
And please don't cry
I know how you feel inside I've
I've been there before
Somethin's changin' inside you
And don't you know

Don't you cry tonight
I still love you baby
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

Give me a whisper
And give me a sign
Give me a kiss before you
tell me goodbye
Don't you take it so hard now
And please don't take it so bad
I'll still be thinkin' of you
And the times we had...baby

And don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

And please remember that I never lied
And please remember
how I felt inside now honey
You gotta make it your own way
But you'll be allright now sugar
You'll feel better tomorrow
Come the morning light now baby

And don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry tonight
Baby maybe someday
Don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry
Tonight

Welcome To The Machine...

image2059

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
Where have you been? It's alright we know where you've been
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time
Provided with toys and Scouting for Boys
You bought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you know you're nobody's fool
So welcome to the machine
Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
What did you dream? It's alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star, he played a mean guitar
He always ate in the steak bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the machine

Wouldn't It Be Nice...

image2043

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong

You know it's gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through

Happy times together we've been spending
I wish that every kiss was neverending
Wouldn't it be nice

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Baby then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
We could be married
And then we'd be happy

Wouldn't it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But lets talk about it
Wouldn't it be nice

Rock´n Roll...

image2044

I torsdags såg jag ett genrep av
Rock´n RollStadsteatern och i lördags såg jag premiären.

Pjäsen utspelar sig mellan 1968 och 1990 i Cambridge och Prag. Politiken och familjerelationerna är det centrala och man får följa de olika händelserna i kronologisk ordning. Med svarta avbrott för musik av Bech Boys, John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground, Rolling Stones osv. mellan årtalen. 

Handlingen kretsar kring Max (Lennart Jähkel) och hans familj som vi får följa under tre generationer. Det börjar med dottern Esmé (Hanna Alström) som röker hash, lyssnar på pop-musik och drömmer om den store guden Pan (Syd Barett). Hustrun Eleanor (Katarina Ewerlöf) som har Spfo som huvudämne på universitetet och insjuknar i cancer. I Parg finns Maxs vän Jan (Gerhard Hoberstorfer) som vårdar sina skivor ömt och tror på en kommunism med mänskligt ansikte. 

Efter paus har Esmé (Katarina Ewerlöf) blivit äldre och fått en egen dotter; Alice (Hanna Alström). Max är sjuk och Esmé och Alice har kommit till Cambridge för att ta hand om honom. Esmé är rebellisk och försöker i alla få någon ordning på sitt liv, hon tar sig t.o.m. ann Sapfo något som förvånar alla. Alice har ärvt sin mormor Eleanors läshuvud och hjälper Esmé. Alice pappa Nigel (Richard Forsgren) ska komma dit för att presentera sin nya fru, Candida (Lena Nilsson) som är journalist. Men Max har också bjudit in Jan som kommer hela vägen från Prag bara för att träffa honom eller... Och Lenka (Nadja Weiss), Eleanors gamla elev, vad gör hon där?
image2047

Första gången jag såg föreställningen så hängde jag inte riktigt med, det politiska blev förvirrande. Jag antar att jag är för liten, jag har ingen förförståelse alls att tala om, när det gäller politiken här. Men jag tyckte inte att det gjorde något egentligen, allt runtomkring gjorde ju att jag kunde skapa mig en bild i alla fall. Och jag gillade den! Andra gången blev det hela tydligare och jag förstod mycket mer. Tror verkligen att det här är en pjäs som växer vartefter man ser den fler gånger. Nu tycker jag verkligen om den och vill se den igen!

Gör det ni med! Se den, se den, se den... Boka här!

PS. Heja Katarina - du är grym som alltid!

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For...

image2033

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...
