ABBA – Don’t Shut Me Down

A while ago, I heard the sound of children’s laughter
Now it’s quiet, so I guess they left the park
This wooden bench is getting harder by the hour
The sun is going down, it’s getting dark
I realise I’m cold, the rain begins to pour
As I watch the windows on the second floor
The lights are on, it’s time to go
It’s time, at last, to let him know

I believe it would be fair to say
You look bewildered
And you wonder why I’m here today
And so you should, I would
When I left, I felt I’d had еnough
But in the shape and form I appear now
I havе learned to cope
And love and hope is why I am here now

And now you see another me, I’ve been reloaded, yeah
I’m fired up, don’t shut me down
I’m like a dream within a dream that’s been decoded
I’m fired up, I’m hot, don’t shut me down
I’m not the one you knew
I’m now and then combined
And I’m asking you to have an open mind (And I won’t be the same)
I’m not the same this time around (Ooh)
I’m fired up, don’t shut me down
