Song of the week - Love Love Love

"Love Love Love" was the song that Agnes entered the swedish pre-selection to ESC, with.
From one out of four groups Agnes and "Love Love Love" went right trough to the final.
In the final, Agnes and "Love Love Love" ended up at 8th place, out of 32 songs total.
It peaked at #4 in Swedens hitlist, and it got pretty much radio airplay. The song is like the other DLP-Songs, written by the genious Anders Hansson.
When Anders first wrote "Love Love Love" it was called "Wait" and supposed to be Charlotte Perrellis song, but she choosed "Hero" and "Wait" was re-written to "Love Love Love", for Agnes.



Lyrics:

My friends keep saying That I need patience Fools rushing, better slow down They keep talking 'bout good things (to) come But I don’t wanna wait
My heart is aching I’m not mistaken The moment I saw you my whole world started to change You could be what I’ve been looking forI come back for more and I want you to know
You see right through me Can’t hide it for you You read my mind, but I refuse to feel shame It’s not a crime to want love and more It’s happened before and I want you to know
I wanna feel love, love, love Lift me up to the sky (Oh) give me love, love, love Take me higher than highI will show you heaven when I get you alone I don’t wanna wait anymore(Ohh) I’m waiting for a sign That you made up your mind Don’t keep my hanging on forever Don’t waste another night I don’t wanna wait no more…
I wanna feel love, love, love Lift me up to the sky (Oh) give me love, love, love Take me higher than highI will show you heaven when I get you alone I don’t wanna wait anymore
I wanna feel love, love, love Lift me up to the sky (Oh) give me love, love, love Take me higher than highI will show you heaven when I get you alone I don’t wanna wait anymore
I don’t wanna wait I don’t wanna wait anymore

All those stars Running through your brain Passing through Like a run-away train
Sleepless nights Powering the fears Brought you pain And unnecessary tears
Let me show you A sweeter way to exist Let me show you I've been looking out for your love Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love, yeah
Kick Back Relax Na na na na, oooh Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love Kick Back Relax Na na na na, oh yeah
You look outside There's nothing there to see I'm inside of you Where I will always be
No need to be, the man behind the mask Let's remove it All you need to do is ask
Let me show you A sweeter way to live Let me show you I've been looking out for your love Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love, yeah Kick Back Relax
Na na na na Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love Kick Back Relax Na na na na, oh yeah
You've been running like the wind Too long, too long Been fighting after goals Too strong, too strong It's time to put to bed The voices at your head It's time to listen to the heart
I'll be looking out for your love Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love, yeah Kick Back Relax Na na na na Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love Kick Back Relax Na na na na, oh yeah
Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love (Don't you know) Kick Back Relax Na na na na Kick Back Relax Don't you know I've been looking Out for your love, yeah Kick Back Relax Na na na na na na

This is some of Agnes words about her succes in the UK;

"-It´s awesome. It´s the first time i launch something abroad, and i have been really nervous. England is a big market, and if it goes well there, it can go well in the whole world.
People got their eyes on me right away. It really made my confidense go up. It´s good that this happens now, when i have more experience. Now i will go to England as often as i can."

In a radio intervju she said that there had happend things right away since the UK succes, around the world.

Lyrics:

Boy, you got me stranded Feeling for you And I don't know what to do about it Cause you got me stranded Come on and help me through Boy, you got me stranded with you
Such a beautiful mind Such a beautiful soul I've never met someone like you before
And we could fly so high Painted pictures of you and me together Coming true in my mind
And I feel, oh baby Deep down inside We could be magical
Boy, you got me stranded Feeling for you And I don't know what to do about it Cause you got me stranded Come on and help me through Boy, you got me stranded with you
Now I've opened my heart, yeah I'm sharing secrets with you, ohh I'm not afraid Baby, just take my hand And this time, oh yeah And lead us to a place Where we can find eachother And trustin' peacefully And all I know is that I'm lost in your love That's one thing, one thing I know for sure
Boy, you got me stranded Feeling for you And I don't know what to do about it Cause you got me stranded Come on and help me through Boy, you got me stranded with you I never thought I'd fall so easily By simply looking in your eyes Cause boy you got me Boy, you got me stranded Won't you come and rescue me Won't you come and rescue me Boy, you got me stranded Feeling for you
And I don't know what to do about it Cause you got me stranded Come on and help me through Boy, you got me stranded with youAnd I don't know what to do about it Cause you got me stranded Come on and help me through Boy, you got me stranded with you
