Roxette – Fireworks lyrics

I once knew a girl
I can't remember her name
But I remember her face
Cos her sister looked the same

They both left school
But they couldn't find a job
So they said farewell
And stole a small town car

As they were riding
By the beach some
Summer night
The Radio shouted out
One of those songs
That might just
Change your life
- It went like this:

Checkin' in checkin' outMakin' love I like watchin' allYour fireworksI like it when I light those starsIn your eyesJust like fireworks in the sky

- Yes I did

Throwing some poems
To the ports and docks
They were sleeping outdoors
Pushing all their luck

They sent me a letter
Full of pills and thrills
Then they both got rich
And moved to Hollywood hills

Yeah they made lots of money
Playing folk guitar
Cos everywhere
The boys went crazy
Just to hear these words of art:

Checkin' in checkin' outtake it to the skyMakin' love I like watchin' allYour fireworksI like it when I light those starsIn your eyesJust like fireworks in the skyFireworks in the sky

They're coming to get you
They're coming to get you now
Coming to get you now

Watch the sky!
