Wiki:

Velvet is a song by Savoy, a band fronted by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy from their first album, Mary Is Coming. Savoy's version was released as a single in the US, but got very little airplay. a-ha's version of Velvet replaced Savoy's guitars with sitars. Their version, the third single from Minor Earth | Major Sky , was released to radio stations in Germany (and in other European countries such as Sweden, Switzerland and Holland) in September 2000 and was released to German record stores on 6 November (one week later in other parts of Europe). Originally, The Sun Never Shone That Day was to be released in Norway instead of Velvet, but it was later decided that Velvet would also be released in Norway. The backing vocals was performed by Simone Larsen of the Norwegian band D'Sound. World Sales: 300.000

(Aah-aah-aaah, aah-aah-aah) Her skin is like velvet, her face cut from stone Her eyes when she's smiling will never reach home But hear how she sings (aah-aah-aaah, aah-aah-aah) Her touch would be tender, her lips would be warm But when we're together I'm always alone But hear how she sings (aah-aah-aaah, aah-aah-aah) But hear how she sings (aah-aah-aaah, aah-aah-aah) But hear how she sings Her skin is like velvet, so I went to her home Her place like a palace with things you can't own Her skin is like velvet But hear how she sings (aah-aah-aaah, aah-aah-aah) But hear how she sings (aah-aah-aaah, aah-aah-aah) (Aah-aaah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah)
