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

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

Ulvaeus, Bjoern K / Andersson, Benny
