1. Cazzi Opeia – “I Can’t Get Enough(Writers: Bishat Araya, Jakob Redtzer, Cazzi Opeia, Paul Rey)

(Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah)

I know that i’m a mess

I’m the first one to confess

I got issues

Baby I got issues

We both got pretty scars

But I love your every flaw

When I’m with you

I won’t try to fix you

So what, so what if we get drunk

Or get a little wild, sometimes

Oh I

don’t mind if we get in a fight

As long as we collide

I feel alive

Oh when you taste like that

And I could die

Oh with a face like that

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough of you

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough of you

I’m haunted by your kiss

And the flavour of your lips

Let me have it

Baby I’m an addict

Oh no I can’t resist

Your touch, your fingertips

Is like no other

We’re perfect for each other

Oh so what If the world is upside down

As long as you’re around

I feel alive

Oh when you taste like that

And I could die

Oh with a face like that

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough of you

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough of you

Life is so much so much better

When we are together

So why be alone?

No one love me love me better

Lucky number 7

Baby you’re the one

And I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough of you

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough

I can’t get enough of you

(Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah)

 

2. Lancelot  - “Lyckligt slut(Writers: Lancelot Hedman, Niklas Carson Mattsson )

Utanför porten

Står jag och ler

Ler som en idiot

Fåglarna sjunger

Sjunger i dur

Allt är så vackert nu

Men jag

Vill inte ha nåt vackert

Jag vill ha nåt som är fult

För vackert har ett slut

Jag kunde dö just nu

Med dig här i min famn

Vi dansar livet ut

Alla sorger blir till sand

För om tiden rinner ut

Om det är över nu

Får jag ett lyckligt slut

Kanske för bra men

Låt det va sant

Ljuger jag för mig själv?

Svävar bland molnen

Men väntar på storm

Allt är för underbart

Men jag

Vill inte ha nåt vackert

Jag vill ha nåt som är fult

För vackert har ett slut

Jag kunde dö just nu

Med dig här i min famn

Vi dansar livet ut

Alla sorger blir till sand

För om tiden rinner ut

Om det är över nu

Får jag ett lyckligt slut

Nej jag

Vill inte ha nåt vackert

Jag vill ha nåt som är fult

För vackert har ett slut

Jag kunde dö just nu

Med dig här i min famn

Vi dansar livet ut

Alla sorger blir till sand

För om tiden rinner ut

Finns det ett lyckligt slut

För nån som jag och du?

 

3. Lisa Miskovsky  – “Best to Come(Writers, David Lindgren Zacharias)

I won’t settle,

I won’t settle down

Not even if you’re telling me

I’ll be the chooser

Now or never,

now or never now

I’m leaving all you left behind

To light up the future

I would give it all I got

I will never run

Never hide

Never showing you, I cried

I’m not giving you a chance to say goodbye

It will always hurt

Not in vain

More like driving in the rain

But I still believe the best is still to come

It’s still to come

Please just hear me,

please just hear me out

I’m heading down the highway now

Through the snow and the gravel

You can say that I’m different

that I’ve changed into this

What is lost can be found

It’s just a matter of time,

please don’t leave me like this

I will never run

Never hide

Never showing you, I cried

I’m not giving you a chance to say goodbye

It will always hurt

Not in vain

More like driving in the rain

But I still believe the best is still to come

It’s still to come

I will never run

Never hide

Never showing you, I cried

I’m not giving you a chance to say goodbye

Cause you will always see the darkness ahead of you

let me light up the future

I’m not giving you a chance to say goodbye

It will always hurt

Not in vain

More like driving in the rain

But I still believe the best is still to come

And it’s still to come

 

4. Tribe Friday – “Shut Me Up (Writers: Isak Gunnarsson, Robin Hanberger Pérez, Noah Deutschmann)

It’s way past half-to-nine

But you don’t seem to mind,

Do you?

You’ve got your sugar lines

I couldn’t dare to try,

But you

You’re so loud-mouthed

I’m so far out

Is it alright?

‘Cause I just wanted to say

She shut me up!

I really tried to speak my mind,

But she shut me up

And I hope it’s not the last time

She shut me up

She shut me up,

We’re suddenly so silent,

But that’s alright

You play pretend but I

I think we’re past that line,

Don’t you?

Oh, don’t you?

I’ve got to head back soon

Unless you make your move right now

She said

“You’re so pretty”

Am I really?

And I tried to reply

She shut me up!

I really tried to speak my mind,

But she shut me up

And I hope it’s not the last time

She shut me up

She shut me up,

We’re suddenly so silent,

But that’s alright

“Meet me in an hour two hours away”,

They said

But she don’t want me leaving so—

She shut me up!

I really tried to speak my mind but,

She shut me up

And I hope it’s not the last time

She shut me up

She shut me up,

We’re suddenly so silent,

She shut me up!

She shut me up, up, up, up

We’re suddenly so silent,

But that’s alright

 

5. Faith Kakembo – “Freedom (Writers: Laurell Barker, Anderz Wrethov, Palle Hammarlund, Faith Kakembo)

I don’t see the love

I just see the wounds

I just feel the struggle here in me

Can’t it be enough

Just being a human

I hate the way we make each other bleed

I won’t give up

I’m not afraid

No my hope don’t stop believing

I can trust

Won’t suffocate

Know my heart’s gonna keep me breathing

Till I find

My

Freedom

Oh until I

Find

My

Freedom

I can see the life

Where everybody’s healed

Tell me how much trouble would that be?

Cuz I know you and I

We could write the sequel

We could turn nightmares into dreams

I won’t give up

I’m not afraid

No my hope don’t stop believing I can trust

Won’t suffocate

Know my heart’s gonna keep me breathing

Till I find

My

Freedom

Oh until I

Find

My

Freedom

I’m caught in a notion

I’m getting no peace

Proposing a motion

this world’s gotta see

Keep movin’ it forward

until you and me

Find

Find

Freedom

I won’t give up

I’m not afraid

No my hope don’t stop believing

I can trust

Won’t suffocate

Yeah my heart’s gonna keep me breathing

I won’t give up

I’m not afraid

No my hope don’t stop believing

I can trust

Won’t suffocate

Yeah my heart’s gonna keep me breathing

Till I find

My

Freedom

Oh until I

Find

My

Freedom

 

6. Linda Bengtzing – “Fyrfaldigt hurra! (Writers: Thomas G:son, Linda Bengtzing, Myra Granberg, Daniel Jelldéus)

Vet att jag inte är den bästa

Till och med värre än dom flesta

Men mina snedsteg gör mig ännu mera resolut

För ja, så länge jag försöker

Så gör det inget om jag dör nu

Ska låta mina lungor sjunga tills jag checkat ut

Och jag ska nudda himlen om jag så ska stå på tå

Jag ska visa världen att det går

Kan inte vänta längre, släpp mig nu

Jag tänker göra som jag vill

Finns ingen plats för trams

för jag har tight med tid

Kan inte vänta längre, hör mig nu,

kan inte ändra någonting

Vill säga tack, förlåt och skål för allt vi minns

och ta ett fyrfaldigt hurra för att vi finns

Jag ska leva detta livet

som att det faktiskt vore mitt

Bara sträcka upp ett finger för ”I don’t give a shit”

Jag ska riva alla broar

som inte leder någonvart

jag ska släcka alla bränder innan allt blir svart

Och jag ska nudda himlen om jag så ska stå på tå

Jag ska visa världen att det går

Kan inte vänta längre, släpp mig nu

Jag tänker göra som jag vill

Finns ingen plats för trams

för jag har tight med tid

Kan inte vänta längre, hör mig nu,

kan inte ändra någonting

Vill säga tack, förlåt och skål för allt vi minns

och ta ett fyrfaldigt hurra för att vi finns

Och jag ska nudda himlen om jag så ska stå på tå

Jag ska visa världen att det går

Kan inte vänta längre, släpp mig nu

Jag tänker göra som jag vill

Finns ingen plats för trams

för jag har tight med tid

Kan inte vänta längre, hör mig nu,

kan inte ändra någonting

Vill säga tack, förlåt och skål för allt vi minns

och ta ett fyrfaldigt hurra för att vi finns

 

7. Anders Bagge – “Bigger Than The Universe (Writers: Anders Bagge, Jimmy Jansson, Peter Boström, Thomas G:son)

I’m sitting here

In my apple tree

There’s a guiding light shining down on me

I can see the dawning of my life

Bigger than the universe

Just take my hand

Put your trust in fate

Let us leave this world for a better place

A place where all the darkest days are gone

And everyone’s a champion

Hear, my heart is

beating like a symphony

And every word is poetry

We are, we are

Reaching for the stars like

satellites up in the sky

In a world of you and I

We are, we are

Bigger than the universe

As I’m sitting here

In my apple tree

There’s a rain of hope pouring down on me

I can see the sunrise of my soul

Bigger than the universe

Forever young

Join the ride with me

There’s an open road to eternity

We’re dancin’ on the edge,

we’re wild and free

Hear, my heart is

beating like a symphony

And every word is poetry

We are, we are

Reaching for the stars like

satellites up in the sky

In a world of you and I

We are, we are

Bigger than the universe

We are, we are

We are, we are

Bigger than the universe

We are, we are

We are, we are

We are bigger than the universe

We are, we are

We are, we are

Oh, bigger than the universe

We are, we are

We are, we are

Bigger than the universe

We are, we are
