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

I've been up all night
You've been putting up a fight
Seems like nothin' I say gets through
How did this old bed
Fit a world between me and you?
We said "Goodnight" but the silence was so thick
You could cut it with a knife
We've hit the wall again and there's nothin' I can do.

You're the one, yeah
I've put all my trust in your hands
Come on and look in my eyes
Here I am, here I am.

You don't understand me
My baby
You don't seem to know that
I need you so much
You don't understand me
My feelings
The reason I'm breathin'
My love.

The mornin' comes and you're reachin' out for me
Just like everything's the same
And I let myself believe
Things are gonna change
When you kiss my mouth
And you hold my body close
Do you wonder who's inside?
Maybe there's no way we could feel each other's pain.
Tell me why
It gets harder to know where I stand?
I guess loneliness found a new friend
(Loneliness found)
Here I am.

You don't understand me
My baby
You don't seem to know that
I need you so much.
You don't understand me
My feelings
The reason I'm breathin'
My love.
'Cause you don't understand me.

You don't understand me
My baby
You don't seem to know that
I need you so much.
You don't understand me
My feelings
The reason I'm breathin'
My love.

You don't seem to get me
My baby
You don't really see that
I live for your touch
You don't understand me
My dreams or the things I believe in
My love
You don't understand me
You don't understand me
Understand me.
