Boys Who Want Love - 4.06

Written by LEIF & Daniel Tjäder, Recorded by Daniel Tjäder & LEIF in Södermalm, Stockholm, and at Tempelhof, Berlin. Mixed by Bjarne Stensli at Oslo Klang, Oslo.

Our first winter together, Daniel and I, in a basement studio in snowy Södermalm, exploring Orbital-like synthstabs, Stockholm hipsters in nearby bars making me feel like a Norwegian farmer. After running off to make it to Systembolaget in time, we started talking about the conventional notion that girls want love while boys want to play around. Agreeing that we should turn it upside down, suggesting the opposite is equally true, mirroring the real world as we saw it. The song is actually about this: Some time after a breakup, you seem to remember mostly the good things. Only when you meet again (for rebound sex), you remember why you broke up.

 

Lyrics

Alright now, I seem to remember you everyday

Alright now, I seem to remember almost everything

 

You´re gone now

I seem to forget all the things that you said

You´re gone now

I seem to forget all the shit that you did

You seem to have been so much better than me

 

Boys who want love

Girls who want freedom

Now that you´re gone

Haunted by memories

Boys who want love

Girls who want freedom

Now that you´re gone

Haunted by memories

 

You´re gone now

I seem to remember you everyday

You´re gone now

I seem to remember almost everything

 

Boys who want love

Girls who want freedom

Now that you´re gone

Haunted by memories

Boys who want love

Girls who want freedom

Now that you´re gone

Haunted by memories

 

Boys who want love

Girls who want freedom

Now that you´re gone

Haunted by memories

Boys who want love

Girls who want freedom

Now that you´re gone

Haunted by memories
