3. Disillusion

Written by: (A. Fältskog/ B. Ulvaeus)

Changing, moving, in a circle
I can see your face in all of my dreams
smiling, laughing, from the shadows
when I hear your voice I know what it means
I know it doesn’t matter just how hard I try
you’re all the reason for my life

Disillusion, disillusion’s all you left for me
how can I forget you
when my world is breaking down
you’re all I had, you’re all I want
disillusion, disillusions now that’s all I have

Wishing, hoping, chasing shadows
did I see your face somewhere in the crowd
thinking, wondering, what you’re doing
I can’t stop myself from crying out loud
they say my wound will heal and only leave a scar
but then, they never shared our love

Disillusion, disillusion’s all you left for me
how can I forget you
when my world is breaking down
you’re all I had, you’re all I want
disillusion, disillusions now that’s all I have
