"Fireworks" as written by and Per Hakan Gessle....
It's that time of year again
I think I'll stay in tonight
My dogs are barking
Shaking scared
We don't light fireworks in this house
I hate the way they shoot and sparkle
It reminds me of a time I often clung to
And when I see the Catherine wheel turn
it only leaves me with heartburn

Cause it's the 5th of November
It's the 5th of November
It's the 5th and these fireworks make me blue
Cause it's the 5th of November
It's the 5th of November
It's the 5th and I remember rain

It's cold out there
The grass is wet
And I don't care for muddy in my shoes
I can see them from the window
See them if I want to
Leave me here with arms that I can cling to
Children getting louder and louder
May you roll around the sky like thunder
And later all my friends will come to tell me
about amazing fireworks they've seen

Cause it's the 5th of November
It's the 5th of November
It's the 5th and these fireworks make me blue
Cause it's the 5th of November
It's the 5th of November
It's the 5th and I remember rain

    Lyric CorrectionIt's that time of year again
    I think I'll stay in tonight.
    My dogs are barking
    Shaking, scared
    We don't like fireworks in this house
    I hate the way they shoot and sparkle
    It reminds me of a time I've often clung to
    And when I see that Catherine wheel turn
    it only leaves me with heartburn.

    Cause it's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th and these fireworks make me blue
    Cause it's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th and I'm remembering you.

    It's cold out there
    The grass is wet
    And I don't care for muddy in my shoes
    I can see them from the window
    See them if I want to
    Leave me here with arms that I can cling to.
    Each year they're getting louder and louder,
    They roll around the sky like thunder
    And later all my friends will come to tell me
    about amazing fireworks they've seen.

    Cause it's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th and these fireworks make me blue
    Cause it's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th of November
    It's the 5th and I'm remembering you.

    These are the lyrics I think, just a few corrections.
