偶最喜欢的ABBA是这一首 2

ABBA最后的歌曲之一。不象ABBA其他脍炙人口的名曲,这一首歌没有在任何国家上过排行榜首位,却越听越有味道。03年的时候在卡尔加里的HMV里淘到了这歌的CD,还激动了好一阵子。

ABBA -- The Day Before You Came

I must have left my house at eight

because I always do

my train, I’m certain

left the station just when it was due

I must have read the morning paper

going into town

and having gotten through the editorial

no doubt I must have frowned

I must have made my desk

around a quarter after nine

with letters to be read

and heaps of papers waiting to be signed

I must have gone to lunch

at half past twelve or so

the usual place, the usual bunch

and still on top of this

I’m pretty sure it must have rained

the day before you came

I must have lit my seventh

cigarette at half past two

and at the time I never

even noticed I was blue

I must have kept on dragging

through the business of the day

without really knowing anything

I hid a part of me away

at five I must have left

there’s no exception to the rule

a matter of routine

I’ve done it ever since I finished school

the train back home again

undoubtedly I must have

read the evening paper then

oh yes, I’m sure my life was

well within its usual frame

the day before you came

I must have opened my front door

at eight o’clock or so

and stopped along the way

to buy some Chinese food to go

I’m sure I had my dinner

watching something on TV

there’s not, I think, a single

episode of Dallas that I didn’t see

I must have gone to bed

around a quarter after ten

I need a lot of sleep and so

I like to be in bed by then

I must have read a while

the latest one by Marilyn French

or something in that style

it’s funny, but I had no sense

of living without aim

the day before you came

And turning out the light

I must have yawned and

cuddled up for yet another night

and rattling on the roof

I must have heard the sound of rain

the day before you came
