My Alibi

Album: The Great Depression (2005)
  • My feet felt light for the first time in months
    It was like you came walking across the room
    Straight at me and then straight through me
    And then stopped and stood still for awhile
    I knew then that i'd been lonely for quite some time
    And as we started to dance you gently took off my tear soaked coat
    And let it fall heavy to the floor and then
    We danced some more

    When all is said and done
    When all is gone and still just begun
    I will be asked what i did with my time and why
    Can you be my alibi
    Cause i know i spent it dancing with you

    I have been here before
    These emotions are relived
    It's like a joy deja vu
    You have been walking along
    With me for quite some time
    But me with my deaf ear and blind sides
    Both of these i turned against you
    We all know that you're there
    We all know

    When all is said and done
    When all is gone and still just begun
    I will be asked what i did with my time and why
    Can you be my alibi
    'Cause i know i spent it dancing with you

    Said and done
    Now all is gone and still just begun
    What have i done with my time and why
    You are my alibi
    'Cause i know
    I know I'm dancing with you Writer/s: CHRISTIAN THELL LINDSKOG, MARCUS TOBIAS DAHLSTROEM, SIMON FRANK GRENEHED, TOMAS NILS NAESLUND
