THE CARDIGANS Gran Turismo
It was a phenomenon best forgotten. Last summer, 'Romeo' Di Caprio's melted munchkin face wallpapered every little girl's bedroom while The Cardigans' 'Lovefool' blared out of the world's amplifiers on an endless loop. Shakespeare had given the Swedes a HIT. But once they reached the tippytop of the commercial beanstalk and peered into the...

This is where your sanity gives in and love begins
Never lose your grip, don't trip, don't fall, you'll lose it all
The sweetest way to die
Strange to be on Marvel hill
I've walked some years to find
I know there is a piece to fill
The gap I have in mind
I'm glad you came around today
I sure need a good companion
I'm losin' it but you're the same
Without you, I move at random
We never chose to part in this stupid play
I never felt by heart that I could behave
The way the roles were made
Ease your trouble, we'll pay them double
Not to look at you for a while
And you rely on what you get high on
And you last just as long as it serves you
I don't know what you're looking for
You haven't found it baby, that's for sure
You rip me up and spread me all around
In the dust of the deed of time
I wonder what it's like seeing through your eyes
You've offered me to have a try but I was always late
The filters that I use give me an excuse
I take away what's real I feel it and it blows my fuse
This is a start that I know I'll believe in
So I'm leavin' everything behind
Keeping the parts that I know I'll be needing
And I breed to be a better kind
Hey, what did you hear me say?
You know the difference it makes
What did you hear me say?
Do you really think
That love is gonna save the world?
Well, I don't think so
(Do you believe?)
