if it wasn’t for the nights lyrics – abba

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
