Fait Accompli

Music: Benny Andersson
Lyrics: Björn Ulvaeus

Fait Accompli
No road ahead
Nowhere to go now that
The last words have been said
No hope in hell
That’s the sum of it all
You hand me your keys
With unconcerned ease
And God, I feel small

Books and the like
There’ll be a van
It’s not important
You will send it when you can
I still can’t believe
You could do this to me
The steel in your voice
No room there for choice
Just Fait Accompli

My whole world in ruins
Shattered and cursed
How can I rise from the rubble
The bubble I lived in has burst
The air rushing through
A message from you
Clear as can be
It’s a Fait Accompli

Should I have seen?
Should I have heard?
Maybe a nuance
Or curious choice of word
There were no signs
At least none I could see
No warning from you
Then out of the blue
A Fait Accompli

One heartbeat from panic
Aching so bad
Echoes of heels down the stairs
Dying out and I think I’ll go mad
One minute we’re on
Next minute you’re gone
There’s no more we
Fait Accompli

My whole world in ruins
Shattered and cursed
Now I must rise from the rubble
The bubble I lived in has burst
The air rushing through
A message from you
Out of the blue
And it’s clear as can be
There’s no more we
It’s a Fait Accompli
