Live in Copenhagen February 27. 2009: [R:] = Rigmor Gustafsson singing, [S:] = Silje singing:

[R:] If you hear
A song in blue
Like a flower crying
For the dew
That was my heart serenading you
My prelude to a kiss

[S:] If you hear a song that grows
From my tender sentimental woes
That was my heart trying to compose
A prelude to a kiss

[R:] Though its just a simple melody
With nothing fancy
Nothing much
You could turn it to a symphony
A Shubert tune with a Gershwin touch

[S:] Oh how my love song gently cries
For the tenderness within your eyes
My love is a prelude that never dies
A prelude to a kiss
[Silje was singing these two sentences slightly different compared with this actual text]


(bridge)

[R:] Though its just a simple melody
With nothing fancy
Nothing much
You could turn it to a symphony
A Shubert tune with a Gershwin touch

[S:] Oh how my love song so gently cries
For the tenderness within your eyes
My love is a prelude that never dies
[R+S:] A prelude to a kiss
