If It Wasn't For The Nights
by ABBA

Album: Voulez-Vous (1979)
  • I got appointments, work I have to do
    Keepin' me so busy all the day through
    They're the things that keep me from thinkin' of you
    Oh baby, I miss you so, I know I'm never gonna make it
    Oh, I'm so restless, I don't care what I say
    And I lose my temper ten times a day
    Still it's even worse when the night's on its way
    It's bad, oh, so bad

    Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
    I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
    How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
    Sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

    No-one to turn to, you know how it is
    I was not prepared for something like this
    Now I see them clearly, the things that I miss
    Oh baby, I feel so bad, I know I'm never gonna make it
    I got my business to help me through the day
    People I must write to, bills I must pay
    But everything's so different when night's on its way
    It's bad, oh, so bad

    Somehow I'd be doing alright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
    I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
    How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
    Sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)

    If it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
    if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)

    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

    If it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
    If it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights Writer/s: BENNY GORAN BROR ANDERSSON, BJOERN K. ULVAEUS
