16 You Owe Me One

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

Now there’s a shadow falling over our faces
doubt forever in our hearts
and in a while we’ll stop to pick up the traces
we won’t find the missing parts
buy me a ticket I’ll go to the Bahamas
I need a rest from our petty little dramas
yes I really do

Aha
look what you’ve done
I’m missing all the fun
baby you owe me one
aha
my turn to run
a chance to feel the sun
baby you owe me one

I wasn’t ready for this kind of intrusion
I was taken by surprise
now both of us are in a state of confusion
hesitation in our eyes
something unwanted has entered our existence
I think it’s better to view it from a distance
yes I really do

Aha
look what you’ve done
I’m missing all the fun
baby you owe me one
aha
my turn to run
a chance to feel the sun
baby you owe me one
