One Of Us
“One of us is lonely, one of us is only
Waiting for a call
Sorry for herself, feeling stupid, feeling small
Wishing she had never left at all.”
One Of Us resembles a song about a girl who thought she may have needed to be on her own and get away from everything, including the one she loves. She now finds herself wanting things back they way they were before, wishing she had never left at all.
“Sometimes when I’m lonely I sit and think about him
And it hurts to remember all the good times
When I thought I could never live without him
And I wonder does it have to be the same
Every time when I see him, will it bring back all the pain?”
Everyone has had that one person that puts you under their spell and that is what Angel Eyes is representing! Falling for someone who is sweet on the eyes but always leaves you hurting but still wanting more. This is one of the most relatable Mama Mia lyrics!
“Take it easy with me, please
Touch me gently like a summer evening breeze
Take your time, make it slow
Just let the feeling grow”

In the rich mans world
Money, money, money
always sunny, in the rich mans world”

Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house
Tears in my eyes
