Jack-in-the-box (Gubben i lådan)

English translation

Jack-in-the-box

Versions: #1#2#3
Gotten a bottle to the head, lied sedated in the ER
Been dead for minutes, the whole soul was broken
Been chased by the police, been lost in the deep
I’ve stumbled in darkness, but in you I saw the light
And for you I’ve pretended, and hidden my tears
With you I get smaller, like Jack in the box
I refuse to realize, you always let me down
I dig my grave for you, I am a solider for you
 
I took a bullet for you, and got little in return
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
I’ve given you all, and I have nothing left
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
A thousand times over
 
Been left in the city, while you went and closed your eyes
I got boots to my stomach, ‘till I tasted the street
Even so I returned, and I must be a fool
Who just got cheated, and who thought of the team
Because I repressed the “I”, and I saw all the signs
But I wanted to be better, but then everything got worse
I refuse to realize, you always let me down
I dig my grave for you, I am a solider for you
 
I took a bullet for you, and got little in return
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
I’ve given you all, and I have nothing left
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
A thousand times over
 
Put us both on a wave, and soon you fly among the stars
I bear the weight of space, even so you’re in my heart
Take my shine, because I burn, you’re but a pale lantern
I’ve done this for so long, I might as well continue
 
I took a bullet for you, and got little in return
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
I’ve given you all, and I have nothing left
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
[x2]
 
I’ve given you all, and I have nothing left
For you, I shall do it a thousand times over
