when all is said and done ~ abba / pierce brosnan & meryl streep

here’s to us one more toast and then well pay the bill
deep inside both of us can feel the autumn chill
birds of passage, you and me – we fly instinctively
when the summers over and the dark clouds hide the sun
neither you nor i’m to blame when all is said and done

it’s been there in my dreams – the scene i see unfold
who at last flesh and blood to cherish and hold
jealous fools will suffer yes, i know and i confess
once, i lost my way when something good had just began
lesson learned its history all is said and done

in our lives we have walked some strange and lonely treks
slightly worn but dignified and not too old for sex
we’re still striving for the sky, no taste for humble pie
thanks for all your generous love and thanks for all the fun
neither you nor i’m to blame when all is said and done

its so strange when you’re down and lying on the floor
how you rise, shake your head, get up and ask for more
clear-headed and open-eyed with nothing left untried
standing calmly at the crossroads, no desire to run
there’s no hurry any more when all is said and done

standing calmly at the crossroads, no desire to run
there’s no hurry any more when all is said and done
