9 One Of Us

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

They passed me by
all of those great
romances
you were, I felt
robbing me
of my rightful chances
my picture clear
everything seemed so easy
and so I dealt
you the blow
one of us had to go
now it’s different
I want you to know

One of us is crying
one of us is lying
in her lonely bed
staring at the ceiling
wishing she was
somewhere else instead
one of us is lonely
one of us is only
waiting for a call
sorry for herself
feeling stupid
feeling small
wishing she had
never left at all

I saw myself
as a concealed attraction
I felt you
kept me away
from the heat
and the action
just like a child
stubborn and misconceiving
that’s how I
started the show
one of us had to go
now I’ve changed and
I want you to know

One of us is crying
one of us is lying
in her lonely bed
staring at the ceiling
wishing she was
somewhere else instead
one of us is lonely
one of us is only
waiting for a call
sorry for herself
feeling stupid
feeling small
wishing she had never left at all
never left at all
never left at all
