"The Day Before You Came"  ABBA

 

 It was originally released in 1982.

 

Although it was the final  for those many years that ABBA recording until now it was not then the  last song to be released as their final single was  Under Attack

 

Now there will be two new ABBA songs to put after this poignant song

 

 



Must have left my house at eight, because I always do 
My train, I'm certain, left the station just when it was 
due 
I must have read the morning paper going into town 
And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I 
must have frowned 
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine 
With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to 
be signed 
I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so 
The usual place, the usual bunch 
And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have 
rained 
The day before you came 

I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two 
And at the time I never even noticed I was blue 
I must have kept on dragging through the business of 
the day 
Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me 
away 
At five I must have left, there's no exception to the rule 
A matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished 
school 
The train back home again 
Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then 
Oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within it's usual 
frame 
The day before you came 

Must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so 
And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food 
to go 
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV 
There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I 
didn't see 
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten 
I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed by then 
I must have read a while 
The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that 
style 
It's funny, but I had no sense of living without aim 
The day before you came 

And turning out the light 
I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another 
night 
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of 
rain 
The day before you came
