Lily says she's in love with me today
I say “you stabbed my heart in a positive way
I don't know which way to look”
She says “I like the stupid and funny smile on your face”
I say “I smile because I'm here with you
I smile because you smile too”
and she says “Tell me about your journey from burning hell
to smile and laughter”

Could have been working with computers
Could have been where IT's at
Could have been struggling with costumers
and sent an invoice on ten thousand dollars or more
I've could have gone to school that day
when I decided not to go to school no more
Could have been able to pay my bills
but this was so much worth to me

To tell some jokes, to sing some songs
To deliver the poems about Pablo and Lily
To deliver the lines that you can relate to
To close my eyes and disappear

So raise your hand if you agree with me
when I'm saying I'm so happy how things turned out to be
So raise your voice and sing along with me
when I'm singing I'm so happy how things turned out to be
How things turned out to be

Some people say I'm pretentious
Some people say I'm the cure for their fever
Some people say that I can't speak English
The Americans say “Come to the States!”
“Come to the States and sing for us
Let your American buddies deicide where you should go
Come to the States and tell us your stories
Leave the Swedish journalists behind”

So raise your hand...

And leave them howling at the moon
Ooah oh oh oh
