I saw on TV about this little kid
Who had a pig for a pet
His mom had once been attacked by a dog
So a pig was the closest thing he could get

This has of course nothing to do with anything
I just get so nervous when I'm talking to you
All I think about everyday is just kissing you
An old feeling that feels refreshingly new

Ah-ooooh...

Kanske är jag kär i dig

I offered you some chocolate
You declined so sweetly and commented on my jacket
"It makes you look like a lumberjack, but are you man enough to wear it?"
I said, "It used to be my grand-grandfather's, what could I do but inherit it?"

My words are just c-c-c-coming out all wrong
I sure could use a little help
I think I'm gonna drop my cool now
The best way to touch your heart is to make an ass of myself

Ah-ooooh...
Kanske är jag...

    General CommentHe definitely does sing "kanske är jag kär i dig", although the later one is just "kanske är jag k-". I think the phrase really sums up the whole idea of this song; him being in love with someone and therefore making a fool of himself and talking about stuff that doesn't really matter. I also think it adds credibility that the line is in Swedish. It could sound somewhat cheesy if instead of that he sang "maybe I am in love with you".

    General Comment"Kanske är jag kär i dig" is swedish for "Maybe I'm in love with you". I really like this song, by the way.

    General CommentI love this song, too. Any idea whether he actually uses that phrase in the song (in the line that I followed with a question mark)?

    General CommentAs far as I can tell, that's what Jens sings. Even though it might not make much sense, it works in the song.

    General CommentHe does sing "Kanske Är Jag Kär I Dig", and the line that here says "It used to be my grandfather's; What could I do but inherit it?" goes "It used to be my grandgrandfather's; what can I do about inheritage?"

    Saw Jens myself a few weeks ago at Bengans recordstore in Gothenburg. A really nice guy, and the music is wonderful, especially his last record. A good tip if you haven't listened much to him, Into Eternity and of course, Friday Night At The Drive-In Bingo is two of the best songs so far, not to mention Maple Leaves and the swedish version Jag Tyckte Hon Sa Lönnlöv.

    Cheers.
