Do You Remember the Riots?

This song is by Jens Lekman and appears on the album When I Said I Wanted to Be Your Dog (2004).

Do you remember the riots in Gothenburg
In the summer of 2001?
Boy, we sure had fun

I held your hand so proud
It was shaking from what I learned was doubt
In the warm summer sun

And I saw my face on a screen
They filmed us from a helicopter
The most frightened face I've seen
Red in the face like a lobster

Do you remember the riots in Gothenburg
In the summer of 2001?
Boy, we sure had fun

Down the avenue
The black, black crew are throwing rocks at the cop stand then everything stop

They started a bonfire
A couple of days prior
I wanted to do that, too
Burn down the avenue

And I saw my face on a screen
They filmed us from a helicopter
The most frightened face I've seen
Red in the face like a lobster

And your hand slipped out of mine
I couldn't see no love in your eyes
I knew what I had to do
Burn the avenue

And I'm not a political fighter
And I don't even have a cigarette lighter

But I wanna see that fire
I just wanna see that fire (Wanna see that fire)
I just wanted to see that fire

Burn down the avenue

Do you remember the riots in Gothenburg
In the summer of 2001?
Boy, we sure had fun
