ABBA – I Can Be That Woman Lyrics


[Verse 1]

You’re asleep on the couch with Tammy

And she looks straight up at me

The reproach in her eyes is imagined

But the pain that I feel is real

She jumps down and her tail is swishing

Like a feather right under your nose

And then you wake up and you’re bleary-eyed

I say “I’m sorry”, I can see you cried

[Verse 2]

You look frail as you stand before me

Then you curse and kick a chair

And the dog, bless her heart, licks my fingers

But she jerks every time you swear

I feel sick and my hands arе shakin’

This is how all our fights have begun

You say you’ve had it, and you say “Scrеw you!”

I say “I love you”, and I know it’s true

[Chorus]


You’re not the man you should have been

I let you down somehow (Not the one I could’ve been)

I’m not the woman I could have been (I can be that woman)

But I can be that woman now

[Verse 3]

You’re confused when you turn to face me

Is it true or is she drunk?

But it’s clear that I’ve hit my rock bottom

I’m aware of how far I’ve sunk

And the dog is the first to feel it

There’s a shimmer of hope in your eyes

You can’t believe it, but you’re close to tears

Oh God, I’m sorry for the wasted years

[Chorus]

(Not the one I could’ve been)

You’re not the man you should have been (I let you down)

I let you down somehow (Not the one I could’ve been)

I’m not the woman I could have been (I can be that woman)

But I can be that woman now
