Abba - Cassandra

Down in the street they're all singing and shouting<br>Staying alive though the city is dead<br>Hiding their shame behind hollow laughter<br>While you are crying alone on your bed<br><br>Pity cassandra that no one believed you<br>But then again you were lost from the start<br>Now we must suffer and sell our secrets<br>Bargain, playing smart, aching in our hearts<br><br>Sorry cassandra I misunderstood<br>Now the last day is dawning<br>Some of us wanted but none of us could<br>Listen to words of warning<br>But on the darkest of nights<br>Nobody knew how to fight<br>And we were caught in our sleep<br>Sorry cassandra I didn't believe<br>You really had the power<br>I only saw it as dreams you would weave<br>Until the final hour<br><br>So in the morning your ship will be sailing<br>Now that your father and sister are gone<br>There is no reason for you to linger<br>You're grieving deeply but still moving on<br>You know the future is casting a shadow<br>No one else sees it but you know you're fate<br>Packing your bags, being slow and thorough<br>Knowing, though you're late, that ship is sure to wait<br><br>Sorry cassandra I misunderstood<br>Now the last day is dawning<br>Some of us wanted but none of us could<br>Listen to words of warning<br>But on the darkest of nights<br>Nobody knew how to fight<br>And we were caught in our sleep<br>Sorry cassandra I didn't believe<br>You really had the power<br>I only saw it as dreams you would weave<br>Until the final hour<br><br>I watched the ship leaving harbour at sunrise<br>Sails almost slack in the cool morning rain<br>She stood on deck, just a tiny figure<br>Rigid and restrained, blue eyes filled with pain<br>Sorry cassandra I misunderstood<br>Now the last day is dawning<br>Some of us wanted but none of us could<br>Listen to words of warning<br>But on the darkest of nights<br>Nobody knew how to fight<br>And we were caught in our sleep<br>Sorry cassandra I didn't believe<br>You really had the power<br>I only saw it as dreams you would weave<br>Until the final hour<br><br>I'm sorry cassandra<br>I'm sorry cassandra
