Artiestinformatie

Land   Zweden

Popgroep uit Göteburg, Zweden, begin jaren '90 opgericht door componisten/producers Ulf Ekberg (Buddha) (geb. 06-12-1970; toetsen) en Jonas (Joker) Berggren (geb. 25-03-1972; toetsen). Jonas’ zussen Linn (geb. 31-05-1970; zang) en Jenny (geb. 19-05-1972; zang) voegen zich later bij het tweetal.

Vanaf begin 1993 scoort Ace Of Base binnen drie jaar acht hits, waarvan de eerste vijf allemaal de top 10 halen. De debuutsingle All That She Wants kwam tot de 4e plaats en was niet de hoogst genoteerde hit (dat was Wheel Of Fortune op 2), maar wel de meest succesvolle van de groep.


Songtekst

I, I've got a new life,
You would hardly recognize me,
I'm so glad.
How could a person
Like me
Care for you.

Why do I bother,
When you're not the one,
for me?

OoooooOOOOOOooooo

Is enough enough.

[chorus]:
I saw the sign.
(and) It opened up my eyes,
I saw the sign.
Life is demanding,
without understanding.
I saw the sign,
(and) It opened up my eyes,
I saw the sign.
No one's gonna drag you up,
To get into the light,
where you belong.
But where do you belong?

Under the pale moon,
For so many years I wondered who you are.
How could a person like you bring me joy?
Under the pale moon,
where I see a lot of stars.

[chorus]

I saw the sign,
And it opened up my mind,
And I am happy now livin' without you,
I've left you,
Oh, oh-oh.

I saw the sign.
It opened up my eyes,
I saw the sign.
No one's gonna drag you up,
To get into the light,
where you belong.

I saw the sign, I saw the sign
I saw the fire
I saw the sign, I saw the sign
I saw the sign, I saw the sign
I saw the fire
And it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign.
