3. SOS (Seaside Special, BBC)

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

Where are those happy days
they seem so hard to find
I try to reach for you
but you have closed your mind
whatever happened to our love
I wish I understood
It used to be so nice
it used to be so good

So when you’re near me
darling can’t you hear me
SOS
the love you gave me
nothing else can save me
SOS
when you’re gone
how can I even try to go on
when you’re gone
though I try how can I carry on

You seem so far away
though you are standing near
you made me feel alive
but something died I fear
I really tried to make it out
I wish I understood
what happened to our love
it used to be so good

So when you’re near me
darling can’t you hear me
SOS
the love you gave me
nothing else can save me
SOS
when you’re gone
how can I even try to go on
when you’re gone
though I try how can I carry on
