Knowing Me, Knowing You

ABBA



~~*~~



No more carefree laughter

Silence ever after

Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes

Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye


Knowing me, knowing you

There is nothing we can do

Knowing me, knowing you

We just have to face it, this time we're through

(This time we're through, this time we're really through)

Breaking up is never easy, I know, but I have to go

(I have to go, this time I have to go, this time I know)

Knowing me, knowing you, it's the best I can do


Memories (memories), good days (good days), bad days (bad days)

They'll be (they'll be) with me (with me) always (always)

In these old familiar rooms, children would play

Now there's only emptiness, nothing to say


Knowing me, knowing you

There is nothing we can do

Knowing me, knowing you, aha

We just have to face it, this time we're through

(This time we're through, this time we're really through)

Breaking up is never easy, I know, but I have to go

(I have to go, this time I have to go, this time I know)

Knowing me, knowing you, it's the best I can do


Knowing me, knowing you

There is nothing we can do

Knowing me, knowing you

We just have to face it, this time we're through

(This time we're through, this time we're really through)

Breaking up is never easy, I know, but I have to go

(I have to go, this time I have to go, this time I know)

Knowing me, knowing you, it's the best I can do

This song has never lost its impact on me.

When I first heard it way back when,

it came across to me as the first genuinely

European pop song I'd ever actually heard.

I feels Swedish, you know?

I almost get the sense that they recorded this

atop some peak in the Alps, a green meadow far below.


The harmonies in this are gorgeous,

and the song itself is just catchy,

sticking with you, making you want

to listen to it again and again.
