Music Mondays - Wish I Could Fly by Roxette

Roxette is one of my favourite bands even though they were big in the 80s and I was just born then. With all-time classics under their belt like 'Listen to Your Heart' and 'It Must Have Been Love' (Pretty Woman soundtrack), how could they not feature on Music Mondays? 

Having said that, this track is my favourite. It hit Brazil just as I was about to leave for the UK in 1999 and I felt in love with it the first time I heard it in the radio. That's not to mention that it's a seriously sexy song. Check the lyrics by clicking 'read more' below the video.

What do you think? Do you have any fond Roxette memories or have you never heard of them?


LYRICS...


WISH I COULD FLY
by Roxette

Halfway through the night
I wake up in a dream
Echoes in my head
Make every whisper turn into a scream.

I dream I could fly
Out in the blue
Over this town
Following you
Over the trees
Subways and cars
I'd tried to find out
Who you really are.

In the middle of the night
Cool, sweating in my bed
Got the windows open wide
Thinking about all the things you said.

I wish I could
Out in the blue
Over this town
Following You
I'd fly over roof tops
The great boulevards 
To try to find out 
Who you really are (2x)

I wish I could fly now. (3x)

I wish I could fly
Around and around
Over this town
The dots on the ground
I'd follow your course
Of doors left ajar
To try to find out 
Who you really are

Who your really are

I'll fly (2x)
I wish I could fly

I wake up in a dream (in the middle of the night)
In the middle of the night
I wish I could fly 

I wish I could fly
