slowly lyrics – frida

(b. andersson, b. ulvæus)
we take so much for granted, he and i
we share a life in one dimension
our problems always seem to cloud the sky
but we don’t pay them much attention
and with every day
we drift apart
i can feel it in my heart
that man is not the man i used to know
and though a part of me still needs him so
there’s something wrong
and i feel my love die
slowly, slowly
no angry words and no heart-rending scenes
and we should take it as a warning
we keep on going through the old routines
exchanging kisses in the morning
and with every day we drift apart
and the fear is in my heart
i read the signs and i should be mature
and yet a child could not be more unsure
there’s something wrong
and i feel my love die
slowly, slowly
our p*ssion’s just a distant memory
and in its place a dull frustration
a cold indifference where there used to be
at least a frequent irritation
but a feeling still
of tenderness
and of pity, so i guess
i’ll be the woman in his arms tonight
if he should need someone to hold him tight
he’s like a child
but i feel my love die
slowly
that man is not the man i used to know
and though a part of me still needs him so
there’s something wrong
and i feel my love die
slowly, slowly
slowly, slowly
slowly, slowly
slowly, slowly
