72 hard hours

0

Well that must be the 72 hardest hours I’ve ever had. Still, I’m amazed at how resilient and kind people can be. I’ve never had such ups and downs. Watching “Mamma Mia” was the highlight. I’d never really listend to ABBA lyrics before and they have some great ones that summarizes what I’ve learned from many friends in 2008:

The Winner Takes It All summaries how one old friend feels. There is really only one answer when this happens, you just have be Erased as I learned from the Governator 🙂

I don’t wanna talk
About the things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s what you’ve done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That’s her destiny

I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I’d be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It’s simple and it’s plain
Why should I complain.

But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don’t wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You’ve come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all…

Then from another old friend, wondering what happened when it isn’t just win or lose, but it stretches

Where are those happy days, they seem so hard to find
I try to reach for you but you have closed your mind
What ever happened to our love? I wish I understood
It used to feel so nice, it used to be so good
So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me S.O.S.
When you’re gone, how can I even try to go on?
When you’re gone, well I try, how can I carry on?
You seem so far away but you are standing nearer
You make me feel alive but something died I fear
I really tried to make it out I wish I understood
What happened to our love, it used to be so good
So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me S.O.S.
When you’re gone, how can I even try to go on?
When you’re gone, ooh I try, how can I carry on?
So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me S.O.S.
When you’re gone, how can I even try to go on?
When you’re gone, ooh I try, how can I carry on?
When you’re gone, how can I even try to go on?
When you’re gone, ooh I try, how can I carry on?
