Roxette is een Zweeds duo wat in de jaren 80 wordt opgericht. In 1986 verschijnt hun eerste album Pearls Of Passion maar in Nederland blijft het onopgemerkt. In 1989 is het wel raak met het album Look Sharp en de leadsingle The Look schopt het tot nummer 2 in de Nederlandse Top 40. Vele hits volgen zoals Listen To Your Heart, It Must Have Been Love en Dangerous. In 1991 scoort het tweetal een nummer 1-hit in de Nederlandse Top 40 met de single Joyride afkomstig van het gelijknamige album. In 2016 werd bekend dat Roxette ermee gaat stoppen. Dit in verband met gezondheidsredenen van zangeres Marie. Zij werd in 2002 getroffen door een hersenbloeding maar is daarvan hersteld. Wel kunnen Per en Marie terugkijken op een succesvolle carriëre.

Songtekst

You're sliding down a dream, o yea.
Where nights are born in blue, that's the truth.
You're swimming in a stream, o yea.
Fish are jumping too, next to you.
Suddenly you notice someone's at the door,
you could swear you've been through this all before.

Then she runs her fingertips through your hair.
Your life has just begun.
Her fingers, they are everywhere.
You're floating light like air,
leaving the ground
and she shines on just like the sun.

You're gazing at the sky, o my.
The stars are out tonight, shining bright.
You're waving to a cloud, bye-bye.
You're drowning in the smile of his eyes.

Suddenly you feel there's no time for a deal
though a voice tells you it's for real

And she runs her fingertips through your hair
and life has just begun.
Her fingers, there and everywhere.
You're floating light like air,
leaving the ground. S
he-she shines on just like the sun

It's just a sunny afternoon.
Somebody's singing songs of love, child.
You love a lazy afternoon once in a while.

Then she runs her fingertips through your hair.
Your life has just begun.
Her fingers, they are everywhere.
You're floating light like air,
leaving the ground
and she shines on just like the sun.
