"Poppies and peonies" as written by and Christian Kjellvander....
I wanted you to need me
and I wanted to need you
But the days they proved different:
took action for truth
It's plain it wasn't in the cards for you and for me
'cause you can't live off laughter and luxury

When you couldn't be loved
you were left with feared
Passed admiration contempt is reared
Considered all the things i had with you
Considered all the things i had to do

I wanted you to need me
and I wanted to need you
But the days they proved different:
took action for truth
It's plain it wasn't in the cards
for you and for me
'cause you can't live
off laughter and luxury

You spin your web of sorrow and dreams
Your life's a poem, or so it seems
One too many drunken nights,
One too many unfeathering fights

I wanted you to need me
and I wanted to need you
But the days they proved different:
took action for truth
It's plain it wasn't in the cards
for you and for me
'cause you can't live
off laughter and luxury

So move on, move in, move out
There's a light that lurks in the shadows of doubt
Carry on, carry in, carry out
In this action is what you carry about

So I found a girl who needed me
and you know I need her too
And it's plain that it's all in the cards for her and for me
'cause you cant live off love, laughter and luxury
Yes, you can live like poppies and peonies
