ABBA – Just Like That lyrics

Until that day

My life had been a river

Following the same, pre-destinated course,

Suddenly detouring so unexpectedly

With uncompromising force.

My strongholds broke down all too easily;

I remember well,

How it did embarrass me;

I hung on to his every smile

Marveled at his style

Just like that…

He walked into my house

As smug as a cat

He was handsome and smart

Walked away with my heart

Just like that…

He found a temporary home in my flat

Telling innocent lies

Throwing dust in my eyes

But I led him on,

Knowing that someday soon he’d be gone

Just like that…

As though he only stopped awhile for a chat;

But my secrets he learned

Leaving no stone unturned

And once again, the river’s flowing slowly,

Following the same and uneventful course.

Now the tears have dried,

It’s become a pleasant break,

I recall without remorse.

But now and then

I wonder where he is

And I will admit,

He had something that I miss.

I guess he was a rolling stone;

The only one I’ve known.

Just like that…

He walked into my house

As smug as a cat

He was handsome and smart

Walked away with my heart

Just like that…

He found a temporary home in my flat

Telling innocent lies

Throwing dust in my eyes

But I led him on,

Knowing that someday soon he’d be gone

Just like that…

As though he only stopped awhile for a chat;

But my secrets he learned

Leaving no stone unturned
