“It’s possible” lyrics

Got to grab a pen & paper
Got to write a tiny note to you
I can’t get you out of my system
… There’s something very difficult about you

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It so revealing
It’s possible
When you’re givin’ that look
I just wanna oh-oh-oh!

People tell me all the wrong things
People tell me I don’t have a clue
There’s something in the air, I just know it!!!!!!
Like patches on the skin it stick like glue

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It so revealing
It’s possible
When you’re givin’ that look
I just wanna oh-oh-oh!

The sound of your heartbeat
Promise so much
The sound of your heartbeat…”
Promise so much

Du du do do do do
Got to write a tiny note to you
Du do do do do do
There’s something very difficult about you

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It’s so revealing
It’s possible when givin me that look
I just wanna oh oh oh

When I get that feeling Its so revealing
Its possible When you givin that look

I just wanna Oh Oh Oh
I just wanna Oh Oh Oh
I just wanna Oh Oh Oh

Press Release: Roxette back with new album “Travelling”

Here is the press release in English we got from Roxette’s management. 

A Swedish version is available too if you are interested.

Roxette back with new album ”Travelling”

and a taster: It’s possible!

Three years after their 2009 comeback, Swedish pop phenomenon Roxette are hotter than they’ve been since their early 90’s heydays.

Their world tour is in full swing with almost a million concert tickets sold since the tour kicked off in the Tatneft Arena in Russian Kazan a year ago. On top of that another million Roxette records has been added to the already dizzying 70 million that Roxette has sold over the years.

So far the band has played more than 85 shows in 30+ countries (and the trip continues—they don’t plan to rest until they’ve played 150 shows). But besides zigzagging between airports, arenas, hotels and meeting with fans from all over the world, the band also has found time to record their new album “Travelling”.

The idea has been to tap into all the positive energy that has boosted the band during this dazzling trip, and channel it to new Roxette music. In short, an album that just like 1992’s “Tourism” captures the feeling of a band on a roll—constantly on the move, snatching inspiration as they go; recording in hotel rooms, studios, at soundchecks and in concert.

The result is a fascinating musical postcard with 15 superb songs, most of which are new, some that are revisited classics and others being pearls that for various reasons hasn’t seen the light of day before. A tight and inspired band has gathered around a batch of Gessle tunes, where the relentless hit-maker again and again proves that his sense of melody and ability to surprise is still top-notch.

“It’s Possible” is the first taster from “Travelling” – 2 minutes and 34 seconds of sunny pop music that shows one of Roxette’s many sides 2012.  There’s more to come.

Release date “It’s Possible”: March 2nd.
Release date “Travelling”: March 23rd.

“It’s possible” – cover and duration

According to Play.com – the “It’s Possible (Version One Radio Edit)” with duration of 2min 35sec is to be released on Monday, March 4. The German radio show “Hey Music” on Radio Berlin informs that “It’s possible” lasts for 3min 22sec. We have no information at this point which information is correct.

The B-side of the first single will be T&A Demo of “It’s possible”.

Update: It turned out that correct duration is 2:34 for the first single, which makes it the shortest one leading single in the history of Roxette.

“It’s possible” – new Roxette single

German online shop Grooves-Inc informs that the first single off the TRAVELLING album will be “It’s possible”. The single will be released on the CD on March 16th – a week before the German premiere of the new album. Thanks to Lea Binias for finding out this information.

We were also informed by Aussie fans that the song was performed at the soundcheck in Perth on February 28 for the very first time, so the band is preparing to include it in the setlist.
