Parralox - Flash In The Night - 500px


Flash In The Night

Written by Björn Håkansson & Tim Arnold Norell.

Verse 1
As the break of dawn came closer
All my hopes seemed so forlorn
The misty signs of laughter
And the light eluded all

And my despair was caught in motion
The face just barely true
Shadows in blue

A flash in the night
A flash in the night

Verse 2
In the changing of the season
Releasing one lost name
And the scar once healed forever
Dissolving in the rain

A twig snapped in the clearing
A glimpse of golden skin
My face within

A flash in the night
A flash in the night

Verse 3
And my despair was caught in motion
A face just barely true
(Shadows in blue)

A flash in the night
A flash in the night
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Additional Information:

Secret Service is one of Sweden's internationally most succesful groups.
In 1979 they made an instant impact with the debut single "Oh Susie" and with "Flash In The Night" in 1981 they conquered the European dancefloors.
"Night City", "Let Us Dance Just A Little Bit More" and "I'm So, I'm So, I'm So" are a couple of the additionaly most well-known songs by the band.
For this tribute we've also added a cover of "The Way You Are", originally released as a duet with Secret Service-singer Ola Håkansson and Agnetha Fältskog of ABBA - and a cover of the quite unknown original version of "Oh Susie", in Swedish!

Parralox recorded 2 songs for this compilation. The first one "Flash In The Night" is one of the bands most popular songs. The second "The Dancer" is a long time fan favourite.
"Flash In The Night" is available on the 2nd bonus CD.
