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