14 I Wonder (Departure) (Live Version)

Written by: (B. Andersson / S. Anderson / B. Ulvaeus)

This park and these houses
old streets I have walked
everything dear
will it be here
one day when I am returning

My friends will get married
have children and homes
it sounds so nice
well-planned and wise
never expecting surprises

I wonder
it’s frightening
leaving now
is that the right thing
I wonder
it scares me
but who the hell am I
if I don’t even try
I’m not a coward
oh no, I’ll be strong
one chance in a lifetime
yes, I will take it
it can’t go wrong

My friends and my family
this dull little town
buses I’ve missed
boys that I’ve kissed
everything old and familiar

I wonder
it’s frightening
leaving now
is that the right thing
I wonder
it scares me
but who the hell am I
if I don’t even try
I’m not a coward
oh no, I’ll be strong
one chance in a lifetime
yes, I will take it
yes, I will take it
it can’t go wrong
