"I Let The Music Speak" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
I'm hearing images, I'm seeing songs
No poet has ever painted
Voices call out to me, straight to my heart
So strange yet we're so well acquainted
I let the music speak, with no restraints
I let my feelings take over
Carry my soul away into the world
Where beauty meets the darkness of the day

Where my mind is like an open window
Where the high and healing winds blow
From my shallow sleep the sounds awake me
I let them take me
(Let them wake me, let them now, let them take me)

Let it be a joke
Let it be a smile
Let it be a farce, if it makes me laugh for a little while
Let it be a tear
Let it be a sigh
Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry

Some streets are emptiness, dry leaves of autumn
Rustling down an old Alley
And in the dead of night, I find myself
A blind man in some ancient valley
I let the music speak, leading me gently
Urging me like a lover
Leading me all the way into a place
Where beauty will defeat the darkest day

Where I'm one with every grand illusion
No disturbance, no intrusion
Where I let the wistful sounds seduce me
I let them use me
(All illusion, no disturbance, no intrusion)

Let it be a joke
Let it be a smile
Let it be a farce, if it makes me laugh for a little while
Let it be a tear
Let it be a sigh
Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry

Let it be a tear
Let it be a sigh
Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry

Let it be the joy of each new sunrise
Or the moment when a day dies
I surrender without reservation
No explanations
No questions why
I take it to me and let it flow through me
Yes, I let the music speak
I let the music speak

    General CommentThis song is trying to put into words the feeling of a singer, someone whose passion is to sing. It goes beyond the opening the mouth and singing, it's trying to explain how each song has a mind of its own, going to an extent where the singer is but a tool of the song to come to life and they merge into one thing. Beautiful song if you're the type to appreciate art, I believe.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful, going up to one of my favorite songs by Abba. This song is about someone listening/singing to a song and letting the music take over and let the music speak for that someone

    Man, SO BEAUTIFUL

    General CommentI love the contradictory imagery in this song - it reminds me of the phenomenon of synesthesia, where one sense stimulates perception in another sense.
