Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Cassandra   Abba

(VERSE) (C)Down in the street they're all (F)singing and (C)shouting
Staying (G/B)alive though the (Am)city is (G)dead
(G/F)Hiding their (C/E)shame behind (G7)hollow (C)laughter
While (C/E)you are (F)crying (D7/F#)alone on your (G)bed

(C)Pity Cassandra that (F)no one (C)believed you
But then (G/B)again you were (Am)lost from the (G)start
(G/F)Now we must (C/E)suffer and (F/A)sell our (C/G)secrets
(F6)Bargain, (G)playing (Am)smart, (Dm7)aching (G)in our (C)hearts

(CHORUS) Sorry Cassandra I (G7)misunderstood
Now the last day is (C)dawning
Some of us wanted but (G7)none of us could
Listen to words of (C)warning
But on the darkest of (E)nights
Nobody (Am)knew how to (E)fight
And we were caught in our (Am)sleep
Sorry Cassandra I (G7)didn't believe
You really had the (C)power
I only saw it as (G7)dreams you would weave
Until the final (C)hour

(VERSE) So in the morning your ship will be sailing
Now that your father and sister are gone
There is no reason for you to linger
You're grieving deeply but still moving on
You know the future is casting a shadow
No one else sees it but you know you're fate
Packing your bags, being slow and thorough
Knowing, though you're late, that ship is sure to wait


(VERSE) I watched the ship leaving harbour at sunrise
Sails almost slack in the cool morning rain
She stood on deck, just a tiny figure
Rigid and restrained, blue eyes filled with pain


I'm sorry Cassandra
I'm sorry Cassandra
