Song lyrics
One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise made
Four hands and then away
Both under influence
We had divine sense
To know what to say
Mind is a razorblade

To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough for me, no

One night of magic rush
The start - a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief
Ten days of perfect tunes
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love

To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough for me, no
To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough for me, oh

And you, you knew the hand of a devil
And you kept us awake with wolves teeth
Sharing different heartbeats in one night

To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough for me, no
To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough for me, oh

This song is very fun, and sad. It is rare to have this fresh an understanding of love after the first lover or two, so it seems like a reflection of a lost relationship from probably years ago when she was more innocent. However, there's nothing like the contrast of pained lyrics with sweet poppy music behind it. It has an aching beauty to it, and the more you listen in to it, the more the knife digs bittersweetly in to your heart.

Okay for you retards that know nothing about The Knife -

This song is originally theirs. They sold the rights to the song to Sony years before they became big to earn money to start their own record company because they didn't want to be tied down by what another company may try to make them become. The song was than taken by Sony and given to Jose Gonzales for a Sony Bravia tv commercial.

So don't start trash talking them unless you know the facts.

I find it very amusing how ignorant people invest their time talking (or in this case typing) negative feed.

Great, delicious slice of Euro-Pop that thankfully got noticed in the United States (even if a little) and helped them get a little more mainstream notice.
