Lyrics

En flicka på min gata där jag bor
Jag brukar se henne ibland
Hon har aldrig sett tillbaka
Någon dag ska jag ta mig mod
Då ska jag fråga om ditt namn
Och jag ska ta dig med till sjön som ligger här bredvid
Och varsamt ta din hand i min

En flicka på min gata tänder ljus
I sitt fönster varje ikväll
Hon kan sitta där i timmar
Hon ler åt nåt ibland
Men aldrig åt mitt håll
Om jag inte tar mig mod
Så får jag aldrig ta din hand i min, mmm

Flickan på min gata lever själv
Kanske vill hon ha det så
Vi skulle få det bra tillsammans
Om hon lärde känna mig
Jag skulle visa henne allt
Om jag bara tar mig mod
Så kanske hon vill ta sin hand i min, mmm

Här faller aldrig regnet ner
Så ta ner ditt ljus, kom ut
Mmm, om du var min
Här doftar sommaren svalt
Och fåglarna har flyttat in
Mmm, om du var min
En flicka på min gata där jag bor
Brukar se henne ibland

Lyrics (English translation)

A girl on my street where I live
I usually see her sometimes
She has never looked back
Someday I will have the courage
Then I’ll ask for your name
And I’ll take you to the lake next door
And gently take your hand in mine

A girl on my street lights candles
In his window every night
She can sit there for hours
She smiles at something sometimes
But never in my direction
If I do not take courage
So I can never take your hand in mine, mmm

The girl on my street lives by herself
Maybe she wants it that way
We would have a good time together
If she got to know me
I would show her everything
If only I had the courage
So maybe she wants to take her hand in mine, mmm

The rain never falls here
So take down your candle, come out
Mmm, if you were mine
Here the summer smells cool
And the birds have moved in
Mmm, if you were mine
A girl on my street where I live
Usually see her sometimes
