the tenth album...

In 2000 Fredriksson released her own greatest-hits compilation of her Swedish-language material, titled after one of her songs, "─ntligen" ("At Last"). Meanwhile, Roxette signed a U.S. distribution deal with Edel Music, which re-released Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus!, replacing some non-U.S. hits with songs from Have a Nice Day.

Room Service followed in 2001 to some critical raves. "Probably the best Roxette album since Joyride," wrote Leslie Mathew of the All Music Guide. "Room Service is an exciting, immediate, high-gloss pop gem that contains very little filler indeed." The first single, "The Centre of the Heart," emerged as a result, hitting No. 1 in Sweden and making a slight dent in the U.K. It was followed by "Milk and Toast and Honey." Roxette again went on tour.
 

Real Sugar

Right in the front door I recognized the perfume

The scent was perfect in the dusk by the moon

There must be many ways to ask her to my room

Why didn't I dare?

Well, every hour I try to get somethin' done

Out in the weekend when I'm just havin' some fun

I'm windin' up with none, just zeroes, no 1's, just space with no air

I get: "Bye-bye baby-baby bye baby-baby bye-bye…"

Real sugar, I don't wanna climb the walls

Real sugar, that's what I want or none at all

Real sugar, sweet as a sweet can be

Real sugar, that's what I want and what I need

That's what I need.

Yeah, every Friday I'm gettin' ready to roll

I want her blue eyes start sayin' "Hi" and "Hellow"

But I can always tell she'd rather be alone with some other guy

I get: "Bye-bye baby-baby bye baby-baby bye-bye…"

Real sugar, I don't wanna climb the walls

Real sugar, that's what I want or none at all

Real sugar, sweet as a sweet can be

Real sugar, that's what I want and what I need

Real sugar, I don't wanna climb the walls

Real sugar, that's what I want or none at all

Real sugar, sweet as a sweet can be

Real sugar, that's what you've got so what's for me?

Hey, what's for me?

I turn myself in, turn turn turn

I turn myself out, outside and in

Gimme gimme real sugar

I don't wanna climb the walls.

 

The Center Of The Heart (Is The Suburb To The Brain)

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain? Tell me,

What am I gonna say when I find the center of the heart is the suburb to the brain?

You wear them so well, those innocent eyes

You're putting on a wonderful disguise.

I want you so bad, I'm pushing my luck

It feels like beeing hit by a truck.

This is no place special, don't know why I came

If someone has a minute, won't you explain?

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain? Tell me,

What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart is the suburb to the brain?

Singing: "Na na na na na na, Na na na na na na"

Beeing with you, dealing with fire

Oh, won't you come around (come out) come out (today) and play

I want you so bad, answer my calls

Let's spend the night within these walls

This is no place special, nothing for the same (nothing for the same)

If someone's got a minute, do please explain!

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain? Tell me,

What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart is the suburb to the brain?

Singing: "Na na na na na na, Na na na na na na"

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain? Tell me...

(tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me)

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain? Tell me,

What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart is the suburb to the brain?

Singing: "Na na na na na na, Na na na na na na"

What am I gonna do now?

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain?

The center of my heart... Yeah, yeah, yeah!

What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart is the suburb to the brain?

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon hoooooooo!

Na na na na na na

What am I gonna do now?

What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart is the suburb to the brain?

 

Milk And Toast And Honey

Milk and toast and honey make it sunny on a rainy Saturday, he-he-hey

Milk and toast, some coffee take the stuffiness out of days you hate, you really hate

Slow morning news pass me by

I try not to analyze but didn't he blow my mind this time

Didn't he blow my mind?

 (Here he comes)

To bring a little lovin', honey

To take away the hurt inside

Is everything that matters to me

Is everything I want in life

Milk and toast and honey

Ain't it funny how things sometimes look so clear and feel so near

The dreams I dream, my favourite wishful thinkin'

Oh, he's bookmarked everywhere, everywhere

True love might fall from the sky

You never know what to find but didn't he blow my mind this time

Didn't he blow my mind?

 (Here he comes)

To bring a little lovin', honey

To take away the pain inside

Is everything that matters to me

Is everything I want from life

Oh lay a little lovin', honey

To feel you're gettin' close to me

Is everything that matters to me

Is everywhere I wanna be

 

Jefferson

Jefferson was always out of luck

I remember when we both grew up

Jefferson got hit by a westbound truck

I guess that didn't make him look like a million bucks

That night when Sally really stole the show

And every boy was captured diggin' for gold

Poor old Jefferson was left in the snow

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

Jefferson is always on my mind

When him and me were runnin' out of time

Jefferson was sure enough left be behind

The cops came in and took him by surprise

That night when Sally really showed her game

The neighbourhood would never be the same

Poor old Jefferson got the blame

Ooooh

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

Yeah

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I do believe he didn't do wrong

I say a prayer for someone I care for

I do believe he didn't do wrong

I say a prayer for someone I care for

That night where Sally really gave it all

And made us small boys look quite tall

Poor old Jefferson left the ball

Yeah

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson

Pray for Jefferson's soul

a-a-a-a-ah

 

Little Girl

Once upon a time there was a little girl

Once she was mine

In my heart the only one

I wonder where you are

I know you're somewhere in me

I can see your smile when I close my eyes

Oh, little girl

Where did you go, little girl

I miss you so

I remember when she was mine

Once upon a time there was a little voice

Singing loud and clear

In my heart the only one

Once upon a times there was so many dreams

Once they were mine

Where did you go, little girl

I miss you so

I remember when she was mine

 

Looking For Jane

Where did she go?

Where did she go from here?

The last time I saw her

She made all the clouds disappear

She said, with a smile,

Yea, the weather's alright

She left her coat at home that night

Where do I begin today?

Where do colours never fade?

In the sunshine, in the rain

It's quite the same

It's never gonna change

I'll be looking for Jane

Why did she come?

Why did she come to me?

There must have been millions

In the world she'd rather see

At least in my mind

As time has gone by

It's always harder to laugh then to cry

Where do I begin today? (ba-ba-ba)

Where the colours never fade (ba-ba-ba)

In the sun and in the rain

It's quite the same

It's never gonna change

I'll be looking for Jane

Where do I begin today? (ba-ba-ba)

Where the sunshine never fades (ba-ba-ba)

In the sun and in the rain

It's quite the same

It's never gonna change

I'll be looking for Jane

Where do I begin today?

Where the colours never fade

In the sun and in the rain

It's quite the same

It's never gonna change

I'll be looking for Jane

Where do I begin today?

Where the sun will never fade

In the sun and in the rain

It's quite the same

It's never gonna change

I'll be looking for Jane

In the sunshine in the rain

It's quite the same

It's never gonna change

I'll be looking for Jane

 

Bringing Me Down To My Knees

Been thinking about you

Without even trying, I've done it

There's something about you

I can't put my finger on it

Monday was fine and I was on a high

I'm begging you please to ease, allow your feelings to show, oh oh

You're bringing me down to my kneesw cos I love you so

If your love is strong I want to be sure about it

Oh is it all wrong to go on talking about it?

Oh you thrilled me

I should be alright but Friday I died when you killed me

You're bringing me down to my knees, oh oh

Love me forever or baby, just let it go, oh oh

Monday was fine, yea the hours went by like a summer breeze

But way down the line you might make up your mind and it's time to freeze

You're bringing me down to my knees

I've been thinking about you

 

Make My Head Go Pop

I don't know much about you, but I pretty sure I wanna be with you

I haven't got a clue what is wrong, what is right, what is left to do

I read a magazine

I watch a TV-screen

I dive into a dream only to find me in love with you

I wish you'll never stop to make my head go pop

You make my head go pop pop pop pop pop pop every time you're around

It's a pleasant valley Sunday and everything seems to be beautiful

People go to church, but I'm found contemplating by the swimmingpool

I'm gazing at the sun

I watch him bringing joy to everyone

I feed the ducks with a ban only to find me in love with you

I wish you'll never stop to make my head go pop

You make my head go pop pop pop pop pop pop

You make my head go pop pop pop pop pop pop every time you're around

Press to play and never stop to make my head go pop

Yea, you make my head go pop pop pop pop pop pop every time you're around

Make my head go pop pop pop

Make my head go pop pop

Go pop pop

I feed the ducks with a ban only to find me in love with you

 

Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)

I left and wrote down this song cos my life looked so shatterd

I thank the Lord I'm still strong like before

I picked myself up from the floor and tried

I tried just a little bit harder, oh yea

If someone wants you to bleed and it feels like your're dying

Don't make the moves you don't need, don't cry, just say ba-ba-bye-bye and try, try

Try just a little bit harder, you'll survive

Try just a little bit harder, go ahead and try

Mondays and rainy days were in my pocket

I don't want to send them on to you

Bring them home to you

 

Fool

I was alone

I told my mouth to shot up cos I was talking to myself

Like I always do when I'm stuck

Well, I was crying

You could be crying too

I was screaming throungh the windown, I keep missing you

And the tears came down from the sky

And the rain feel hard on my eyes

Now you know what I look like, I'm feeling like a fool

I lose on my own, I'm going back to school

And I will pray, Hallelujan, you'll be breaking every rule

And come back to stay, I'm feeling like a fool

I really tried so hard to design my life

There's a big black void in head like it's been cut by a knife

Every time your name comes around this stupidity follows me down

Now you know what I look like, I'm feeling like a fool

I thought I could swim I'm drowning in the pool

And I will pray, Hallelujan, you'll be breaking every rule

And consider to stay, I'm feeling like a fool

Please, come back to stay, I'm feeling like a fool

I'm feeling like a fool in my heart

I'm feeling like a fool

 

It Takes You No Time To Get Here

Why don't you take the rest of the day off

You do deserve a break

Follow that road, it ain't long

Just cross that silver lake

Yea, pass the pond, the off-white fence

When you see the mailbox to the left you've made it all right,

No way to go wrong

All you do is blow that horn

It takes you no time to get here

Just drive out of town today

It takes you no time to get here and when

You've arrived you might as well stay

You might as well stay

Why don't you leave your desk for a short while

You do deserve some time

Enjoying the other side of life you forgot to memorize

Stay in the sun, reach for the moon

Make a little love in the afternoon

You're doing all right, no way you go wrong

This is the place where you belong

It takes you no time

No time to get here

 

My World, My Love, My Life

Somedays are covered in rain

While other days are made of glory

And you are the summer sun

The only one who knows the story

Do you want to talk about it?

I dont know

Do you want to say some words?

Oh, I can't let go

I'm talking 'bout my world, my love, my life

Everytime I try to close my eyes

You just entered my mind

And you lay yourself down beside me... Oh why...

Some streets are covered with sweat

There are no regrets

Just new connections... Ohhh

You are the summer the sun

And I'm the one who wants affection

Do you want to talk about it?

I dont know

Do you want to speak some words?

Oh, I can't let go

I'm talking 'bout my world, my love, my life

Everytime I try to close my eyes

You just entered my mind

And you lay yourself down, beside me... Oh why...

My world, my life...

I'm talking 'bout my world, my love, my life

Everytime... I try to close my eyes

You just entered my mind

And you lay yourself down, beside me... Oh why...

You just run through my head

And you lay yourself down, beside me... Oh why...

 

Entering Your Heart (Extended Mix)

I came in crawling

With an absent-minded smile

I had so many things un-tied that summer night

When i decided it was worth another try

Entering your heart.. Ohh yeah

Close your eyes

Don't say a word

All your thoughts must go un-heard

And i......

Have failed so many times....

Entering your mind....

Entering your mind....

I'm not the most important one under the sun

I don't have any power connections to the pentagon

But i've got something of my own, that must get done

Entering you heart

Ohhh... Entering your heart

Close your eyes

Don't tell a soul....

All you dreams must be told....

And i.....

Have failed so many times....

Entering you mind....

Entering you mind

Ohhh...

Ohhh...

I......

Have failed so many times....

Entering your mind....

Entering your mind....

Ohhh..... Entering you heart

Woah.. Entering you heart
