Jens Lekman - The Cold Swedish Winter

rate me

I met her in a snowstorm

I was outdoors plowing

She just walked up to me and said

'Hey boy, how's it going?'

I admired her straight-forwardness

and brushed away my fringe

as a signal of well-being

and accepting her challenge

We went home to her place

and cooked up some chili

Warmed us from the inside

'cause the outside was chilly

We had to be quiet

to not wake up her family

but I made a high pitched sound

when her cold fingers touched me

She said "shhh

please be quiet

I know you don't want to

but please deny it"

She said "shhh

please be quiet

I know you don't want to

but please deny it"

When people think of Sweden

I think they have the wrong idea

like Cliff Richards who thought it was just

porn and gonorrhea

And Lou Reed said in the film

"Blue in the face"

that compared to New York City

Sweden was a scary place

They seem to have a point

after meeting with this girl

maybe not Cliff Richards

but Lou has surely met her

The doubt in her eyes

when I said I wanted to kiss her

for the sake of liking her

and not because of the blizzard

She said "shhh

please be quiet

I know you don't want to

but please deny it"

She said "shhh

please be quiet

I know you don't want me

but please deny it"

'Cause the cold Swedish winter

is right outside

and I just want somebody

to hold me through the night

The cold Swedish winter

is right outside

and I just want somebody

to hold me through the night

In two thousand years

this place will be covered by ice

and the people who will dig us up

will be in for a big surprise

After carefully studying

our calcium-nourished bones

they'll find enclosed

our hearts of stone

Singing the cold Swedish winter

is right outside

and I just want somebody

to hold me through the night

The cold Swedish winter

is right outside

and I just want somebody

to hold me through the night
