Ask Dallas: What is the song Alex Skarsgard sings on Leende guldbruna Ögon ?

Please, please Dallas find out what the song is that Alex is singing on the Swedish TV clip you posted earlier ..

If any of you Swedish speakers can help with translations , please do. If you missed the video see below and thanks to the Skarsgard channel for info.

Alexander Skarsgård as singer of the dance band "Boogey Knights" and Alex is singing the popular song "Tusen och en natt" (Thousand and one nights")

*From Sheiro, she says the song is called " Take me to your heaven " ( in English) and is by Charlotte Nilsson, you can watch both the English version / Swedish version-thanks !

The guys in red talk about what it means to be in a dance band and that singing Schlager music must come from your heart.

The Boogey Knights singer (Alex) says that they are wrong. Being a dance band singer means an uncomfy tourbus, eating cold sausages with mashed potatoes at a highway rest area on E 18 (a large highway in Sweden) and sh***g lots of moms with 3 kids from Fruängen (a Stockholm suburb).

Swedish Lyrics "Tusen och en natt"

Bortom mörkret finns en evighet
Himlens alla stjärnor lyser upp i natten
Kanske att min dröm blir verklighet
För din kärlek går jag genom eld och vatten
Jag vill ha dig här hos mig, och alltid vara nära dig

CHORUS: Du finns i mina drömmar, tusen och en natt
Väcker mina känslor
Varje tid i gryningsmorgon
Sagan om vår kärlek
Kan bli verklig, kan bli sann
Om du älskar mig i tusen och en natt

Som en tjuv om natten kommer du
Stjäl en kyss och tar det mesta av min kärlek
Skuggor som faller i den blåa skymningen
Får mig att längta efter kärlek och bara drömma
Jag kan aldrig glömma

Du finns i mina drömmar, tusen och en natt
om du älskar mig i tusen och en natt

Lyrics - English translation

Beyond the darkness is an eternity
where all stars in heaven light up the night
Perhaps my dream becomes reality
For your love I go through fire and water
I want you here with me, and always be near you

CHORUS: You are in my dreams, a thousand and one nights
Arousing my emotions
Each time the dawn of morning
The fable of our love
Could be real, could be true
If you love me in a thousand and one nights

Like a thief in the night you come to me
Stealing a kiss and taking most of my love
Shadows falling in the blue dusk
Makes me yearn for love and having a dream
I can never forget

You are in my dreams, a thousand and one nights
when you love me, a thousand and one nights
