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 (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we're through
(This time we're through, this time we're through
This time we're through, 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

Mem'ries (mem'ries), 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 (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we're through
(This time we're through, this time we're through
This time we're through, 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

(repeat)

    General CommentI found this quote in the book 1000 UK Number One Hits by Jon Kutner & Spencer Leigh: "Bjorn has since denied that the lyrics had any bearing on his own situation. He claims, “Even if the roots are somewhere deep inside, from something that has happened to you, it’s still 90% fiction. I just work from images. I saw a man walking through an empty house for the last time as a symbol of divorce.”

    General CommentActually, this song is about Agnetha and Bjorn's divorce. Frida and Benny weren't even married yet.

    General CommentHere's a different take for you. When this came out the civil war in Lebanon was at its height. The song just made me think of the different communities that use to live together, now locked in conflict, the mixture of rage and sorrow, incomprehension and yet knowing the others so well. Instead of an empty house, it was a wrecked country.

    General CommentThis is a really sad song, yes. One of the saddest by mostly bubblegum ABBA. More than just a simple relationship, it must have been a marriage (or a very serious relationship). They lived together. They're singing about the empty house where children "would play" - thus a family was in the plans. Now it's all gone.
