Say What You See

‘No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes
Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye.’

(Knowing Me Knowing You-ABBA. Track 5 on Arrival 1976)

It has not escaped my attention that I have a penchant for Scandinavian bands with palindromic names.

‘I reached inside myself and found
Nothing there to ease the pressure of my ever worrying mind
All my powers waste away
I fear the crazed and lonely looks the mirror’s sending me these days.’

(The Sun Always Shines On TV-a-ha. Track 6 on Hunting High And Low 1985)
