"Like An Angel Passing Through My Room" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
Long awaited darkness falls
Casting shadows on the walls
In the twilight hour I am alone
Sitting near the fireplace
Dying embers warm my face
In this peaceful solitude
All the outside world subdued
Everything comes back to me again
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room

Half awake and half in dreams
Seeing long forgotten scenes
So the present runs into the past
Now and then become entwined
Playing games within my mind
Like the embers as they die
Love was one prolonged goodbye
And it all comes back to me tonight
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room

I close my eyes
And my twilight images go by
All too soon
Like an angel passing through my room

    General CommentThis song is kind saddish, a bit nostalgic. I believe it refers to someone who's lived their life, possibly had children, their spouse is dead ("In the twlight hour I am alone" and "love was one prolonged goodbye" are pretty good to prove that point) and all there's left is memories and waiting for the end of their life (the long awaited darkness might be a metaphor for it). And all too soon everything's over, the moment right before the end, the calmness, as if an angel was there.

    General CommentHasn't everyone felt like this one time or another? Drifting in a state of mental and emotional quiet, where thoughts and feelings seem like whispers rather than shouts...you can just let them come and go, observing them rather than trying to avoid, control or direct them. There's a hint that this may be the quietude that comes after intense emotion (the calm after the storm), but it may also be that the storm was years ago and the viewpoint character is simply seeing long-past events in a new perspective.

    The word "reverie" is defined as both "a state of dreamy meditation or fanciful musing" and as "an instrumental piece suggesting a dreamy or musing state." I adore how this song seems to evoke both meanings.
