Alice

[Vers 1]
Sally ringer, det lyder nok skørt men
Jeg syndes jeg vil spørge om du har hørt
Om Alice
Jeg løber ud for at se hvad der sker
Kan næsten ikke tro at jeg ser
En stor flot bil stopper op
Foran Alices dør
 
[Omkvæd]
Hvorfor tager hun hjemmefra sådan som hun gør
Jeg skulle måske spørge, men syn's ikke at jeg tør
I 24 år har jeg boet lige ved siden af Alice
24 lange år med en lille drøm
I håbet om at hun en dag vil høre på min bøn
Det bli'r svært ikke mere at sku' bo lige ved siden af Alice
 
[Vers 2]
Som børn var vi sammen Alice og jeg
Vores barndom var en stor leg
Der var kun Alice
Nu står hun der ung og smuk
Hun ser op, et lille buk
Og bilen forsvinder væk fra Alices dør
 
[Omkvæd]
Hvorfor tager hun hjemmefra sådan som hun gør
Jeg skulle måske spørge, men syn's ikke at jeg tør
I 24 år har jeg boet lige ved siden af Alice
24 lange år med en lille drøm
I håbet om at hun en dag vil høre på min bøn
Det bli'r svært ikke mere at sku' bo lige ved siden af Alice
 
[Vers 3]
Det ringer igen og Sally siger
Jeg ved godt hvor svært det bli'r
At glemme Alice
Men Alice er væk og jeg tror
Du ved, jeg ventede i 24 år
Og bilen med Alice kører væk
 
[Omkvæd]
Hvorfor tager hun hjemmefra sådan som hun gør
Jeg skulle måske spørge, men syn's ikke at jeg tør
I 24 år har jeg boet lige ved siden af Alice
24 lange år med en lille drøm
I håbet om at hun en dag vil høre på min bøn
Det bli'r svært ikke mere at sku' bo lige ved siden af Alice
Det bli'r svært ikke mere at sku' bo lige ved siden af Alice

Alice

[Verse 1]
Sally calls, it may sound crazy but
I thought I wanted to ask if you have heard
About Alice
I run out to see what's happening
Can hardly believe I'm watching
A big nice car stops
In front of Alice's door
 
[Chorus]
Why does she leave home the way she does
Perhaps I should to ask, but I don't think that I dare
For 24 years I have been living right next to Alice
24 long years with a little dream
In the hope that one day she will hear my prayer
It will be difficult to no longer living right next to Alice 
 
[Verse 2]
As children, Alice and I were together
Our childhood was one great game
There was only Alice
Now she stands there young and beautiful
She looks up, a little bow
And the car disappears away from Alice's door
 
[Chorus]
Why does she leave home the way she does
Perhaps I should to ask, but don't think that I dare
For 24 years I have been living right next to Alice
24 long years with a little dream
In the hope that one day she will hear my prayer
It will be difficult to no longer living right next to Alice 
 
[Verse 3]
The phone rings again and Sally says
I know very well how hard it will be
To forget Alice
But Alice is gone and I think
You know, I waited for 24 years
And the car with Alice drives away
 
[Chorus]
Why does she leave home the way she does
Perhaps I should to ask, but don't think that I dare
For 24 years I have been living right next to Alice
24 long years with a little dream
In the hope that one day she will hear my prayer
It will be difficult to no longer living right next to Alice 
It will be difficult to no longer living right next to Alice 
 
Thanks!
