I don't wanna stay here but I can't leave,
I'm in the spell of the magic you weave,
Somebody wake me up
I wish I could break it up,
But I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
Any move I'll make in the end I will lose

I can't shake loose
I try and I try but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking to your door

I wanna hide but when I hear you call,
I turn around, I know I would fall,
One step people shake
No matter what move I make,
Cos' I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
Any move I'll make in the end I will lose

I can't shake loose
I try and try but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking to your door

I don't wanna stay here,
But you know I can't leave,
Please let me go dear
Please let me leave,
I can't shake loose, I can't shake loose
I can't shake loose, can't shake loose
Any move I'll make in the end I will lose

I can't shake loose
I try and I try but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking

I can't shake loose, oh...
I can't shake loose
I try and try, but it ain't no use
I could go like I did before
But these old shoes keep walking to the door

I can't shake loose,
No, I can't shake loose, I can't shake loose,
I can't shake loose, I can't shake loose,
No, I can't shake loose, I can't shake loose,
I can't shake loose

Cassandra

  • Written by: Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus
  • Recording began: 2, 3 y 4 de Agosto 1982, at Polar Music Studios, Stockholm
  • Album: The Visitors (1981)
  • Lead vocal: Frida 

Down in the street
they’re all singing and shouting
staying alive though the city is dead
hiding their shame
behind hollow laughter
while you are crying
alone on your bed
pity Cassandra
that no one believed you
but then again
you were lost from the start
now we must suffer
and sell our secrets
bargain, playing smart
aching in our hearts

Sorry Cassandra
I misunderstood
now the last day is dawning
some of us wanted
but none of us could
listen to words of warning
but on the darkest of nights
nobody knew how to fight
and we were caught in our sleep
sorry Cassandra
I didn’t believe
you really had the power
I only saw it as
dreams you would weave
until the final hour

So in the morning
your ship will be sailing
now that your father
and sister are gone
there is no reason for you to linger
you’re grieving deeply
but still moving on
you know the future
is casting a shadow
no one else sees it
but you know your fate
packing your bags
being slow and thorough
knowing though you’re late
that ship is sure to wait

Sorry Cassandra
I misunderstood
now the last day is dawning
some of us wanted
but none of us could
listen to words of warning
but on the darkest of nights
nobody knew how to fight
and we were caught in our sleep
sorry Cassandra
I didn’t believe
you really had the power
I only saw it as
dreams you would weave
until the final hour

I watched the ship
leaving harbour at sunrise
sails almost slack
in the cool morning rain
she stood on deck
just a tiny figure
rigid and restrained
blue eyes filled with pain

Sorry Cassandra
I misunderstood
now the last day is dawning
some of us wanted
but none of us could
listen to words of warning
but on the darkest of nights
nobody knew how to fight
and we were caught in our sleep
sorry Cassandra
I didn’t believe
you really had the power
I only saw it as
dreams you would weave
until the final hour

I’m sorry Cassandra

Chemistry Tonight

  • Recording began: 13 de Septiembre 1983, at Medstudios, Paris
  • Album: Shine (1984)
  • Lead vocal: Frida

No rain but I felt the thunder
You came and my ship went under
With a white light shattering the night
As you smiled like you do
I could take evasive action
But I need the satisfaction
And I know, oh
I could learn a lot
From someone like you
Who knows what will happen
I'll keep my fingers crossed and
Hope for some reaction
Here it goes, it's chemistry tonight

My eyes are open
All the electricity seems right
I can feel a change in me
It's chemistry tonight
I know that I'm onto something special
Writing on the wall in neonlight
Telling me it's got to be
It's chemistry tonight

You turn and you look
Right through me
You know what you're
Doing to me
Very slow, oh I just can't erase
This smile from my face
I'm sure we could be terrific
So pure that it's scientific
'Cos it's true, ooh everything
We do falls right into place
Can't wait for the darkness
I'm lying in the bath
I turn on my radio
I know, there's chemistry tonight

My eyes are open
All the electricity seems right
I can feel a change in me
It's chemistry tonight
I know that I'm onto something special
Writing on the wall in neonlight
Telling me it's got to be
It's chemistry tonight

One kiss and you start a fire
One sip from your loving cup
Can take me high
My body's burning up
When you do like you do
I feel silent somehow
Feel you closer now
We may discover something
Maybe, it's chemistry tonight

My eyes are open
All the electricity seems right
I can feel a change in me
It's chemistry tonight (chemistry tonight)
I know that I'm onto something special (chemistry tonight)
Writing on the wall in neonlight (chemistry tonight)
Telling me it's got to be
It's chemistry tonight (chemistry tonight)

My eyes are open
All the electricity seems right
I can feel a change in me
It's chemistry tonight (chemistry tonight)
I know that I'm onto something special (chemistry tonight)
Writing on the wall in neonlight (chemistry tonight)
Telling me it's got to be
It's chemistry tonight (chemistry tonight)

  • Album: Voulez-Vous (1979)
  • Lead vocal: Agnetha

Chiquitita, tell me what’s wrong
you’re enchained by
your own sorrow
in your eyes
there is no hope for tomorrow
how I hate to see you like this
there is no way you can deny it
I can see that you’re
oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I’m a shoulder you can cry on
your best friend
I’m the one you must rely on
you were always sure of yourself
now I see you’ve broken a feather
I hope we can
patch it up together

Chiquitita
you and I know
how the heartaches
come and they go
and the scars they’re leavin’
you’ll be dancin’ once again
and the pain will end
you will have no time for grievin’
Chiquitita
you and I cry
but the sun is still in the sky
and shining above you
let me hear you sing once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita
try once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita

So the walls came tumblin’ down
and your love’s a blown out candle
all is gone and it seems
too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
there is no way you can deny it
I see that you’re
oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita
you and I know
how the heartaches
come and they go
and the scars they’re leavin’
you’ll be dancin’ once again
and the pain will end
you will have no time for grievin’
Chiquitita
you and I cry
but the sun is still in the sky
and shining above you
let me hear you sing once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita
try once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita

Chiquitita, dime por qué
tu dolor hoy te encadena
en tus ojos hay
una sombra de gran pena
No quisiera verte así
aunque quieras disimularlo
si es que tan triste estás
para qué quieres callarlo

Chiquitita, dimelo tú
en mi hombro, aquí llorando
cuenta conmigo ya
para así seguir andando
Tan segura te conocí
y ahora tu ala quebrada
déjamela arreglar
yo la quiero ver curada

Chiquitita, sabes muy bien
que las penas vienen y van y desaparecen,
otra vez vas a bailar y serás feliz,
como flores que florecen
Chiquitita, no hay que llorar
las estrellas brillan por ti allá en lo alto,
quiero verte sonreir para compartir
tu alegria, Chiquitita
Otra vez quiero compartir
tu alegria Chiquitita

Chiquitita, dime por qué
tu dolor hoy te encadena
en tus ojos hay
una sombra de gran pena
No quisiera verte así
aunque quieras disimularlo
si es que tan triste estás

Chiquitita, sabes muy bien
que las penas vienen y van y desaparecen,
otra vez vas a bailar y serás feliz,
como flores que florecen
Chiquitita, no hay que llorar
las estrellas brillan por ti allá en lo alto,
quiero verte sonreir para compartir
tu alegria, Chiquitita
Otra vez quiero compartir

    Business and pleasure
    Keeping you up,
    Hunting for treasure
    You can't dig enough,
    Growing but losing
    Staying up late,
    All the nightclubs are closing
    But you've got a date

    So you've hit the right spot
    But you've still got the itch,
    Business and pleasure
    You can't mix, you can't switch,
    Just a case of a face and a place, no disgrace
    It's just a rhythm a syndrome
    It's a feeling you crave,
    Click track, Click track

    Move at your leisure
    Make tracks leave no signs,
    Like a fire in the desert
    With winds from behind,
    You're getting hot and live wired
    Using down time,
    All for business and pleasure
    Time after time

    So you've hit the right spot
    But you've still got the itch,
    Business and pleasure
    You got bought, it's a bitch,
    Just a case of a face and a place, no disgrace
    It's just a rhythm a syndrome
    It's a feeling you crave
    Click track, Click track

    Pupil to pupil
    Scanning the screen,
    You read it all over
    And steal the scenes,
    You're rougher than Crusoe
    Bedded in leaves,
    And you're looking for Friday
    To answer your needs

    So you've hit the right spot
    But you've still got the itch,
    Business and pleasure
    You can't mix you can't switch,
    Just a case of a face and a place, no disgrace
    It's just a rhythm a syndrome
    It's a feeling you crave

    So you've hit the right spot

    It's just a rhythm a syndrome

    One two three four

    It's in strange situations
    That dreams are laid
    Just a look
    And they taunt you again
    You think how it felt
    Then the memory fades
    As you enter
    The once promised land
    He squeezes
    Then lets go your hand

    Comfort me, comfort me

    He sat out of the lamplight
    As if to hide
    While waiting for who
    I'll never know
    He smokes like he means it
    To fill what he feels
    That's empty
    And nowhere to go
    He sighs as he
    Breathes me "hello"

    Comfort me

    He looks right through me
    To another face
    A smile in his eyes
    From another time and place
    To feel what it was
    That happened then
    But he couldn't take me there

    The streets seem familiar
    But something's gone
    I watch as he slumbers
    To go in search
    Of the picture
    That fills what he feels
    I break into the once long ago
    He smiles as he
    Breathes her "hello"

    Comfort me

    He looks right through me
    To another face
    A smile in his eyes
    From another time and place
    To feel what it was
    That happened then
    But he couldn't take me there

    It's in strange situations
    That dreams are laid
    Just a thought
    And they haunt you again
    If you'd known how it felt
    Could it be the same
    If you'd entered
    That once promised land
    If it squeezed
    Then held on to your hand

    Comfort me, comfort me

    Ya no hay mas sonrisa
    todo finaliza
    nuestra casa hoy vacía
    me hace llorar
    y la historia aquí termina
    hay que olvidar

    Solo tú, sola yo
    poco y nada se logró
    solo tú, sola yo
    nuestro amor quién puede negar, pasó
    se termino
    separarse es tan dificil lo sé,
    pero yo me iré
    conociéndome a mí,
    conociéndote a ti

    Bueno, malo, tanto
    guardo risas, llanto
    en los cuartos donde vimos
    niños jugar
    hoy hay sólo un gran silencio
    en el lugar

    Solo tú, sola yo
    poco y nada se logró
    solo tú, sola yo
    nuestro amor quién puede negar, pasó
    se termino
    separarse es tan dificil lo sé,
    pero yo me iré
    conociéndome a mí,
    conociéndote a ti
     
    Solo tú, sola yo

    Crazy World

    • Album: Abba (1975)
    • Lead vocal: Björn
    I was up with the morning sun
    couldn’t sleep so I thought I’d take a walk
    I was thinking of you and me
    and I went to your house ’cause I had to talk
    I could hardly believe my eyes
    when I saw this guy closing your front door
    had a feeling of emptiness
    like I never had before

    And I close my eyes
    will you leave me girl
    then I realise
    it’s a crazy world

    As he disappeared in his car
    I was stunned and I didn’t know what to do
    everything I had ever dreamed
    everything in my life’s a part of you
    and I just couldn’t move my feet
    so I stood on the pavement as you came out
    you acted as you didn’t know
    what it was all about

    And I close my eyes
    will you leave me girl
    then I realise
    it’s a crazy world

    Baby how could you do it
    you just told me lies
    and you meet behind my back
    with other guys
    baby how could you tell me
    there was only me
    I was stupid to believe you
    I was blind but now I see

    Then you smiled and you took my hand
    “there is something,” you said, “that you may not know
    there’s a couple of men in my life
    and one of them is my brother Joe
    he’s been gone for a long long time
    but he’s back and I think he’s gonna stay
    you’ll be seeing a lot of him
    he’s so nice in every way”

    And I close my eyes
    never leave me, girl
    then I realise
    it’s a crazy world
